SOURCE: cleaning our viking oven
I had to clean mine the old fashioned way -oven cleaner and elbow grease. Fortunately the oven comes apart in ways I never imagined so I could remove, for instance, the sides and bottom and clean them without bending over with my head in the oven!

This is a more common problem than revealed by Viking.
Heres how I an "amature" fixed it.
Top center of many viking ovens have slots. With a small flashlight look into the center slots. "Its HARD to see" Look for something
shiney thats the latch/hook everything else will be dark.
I used a shish ka bab skwer. You need something like that or maybe an ice pick. Knives screwdrivers and things like that will
damage the face of the oven and then after opeining it you will forever feel bad about marring that very expensive unit.
Take the pick and with the flashlight guide it to the shiney part.
Once touching push to the LEFT. Keep trying as the pick will slip
many times. The latch should have no resistance if you can get on it.
Once open you can try and reset the hook to its open position.
Mine would not reset and prevented the door from closing.
This is now another fix. To keep the hook held to the open position. E mail me for how I jury rigged this part.
I have the hook held open now and will never be able to use the self clean function again. But thats better for me than a open wallet fix for the repair man and then wonder when it will happen again. To repeat. This is a known problem with Viking ovens.

The oven door lock needs approximately 1 hour to cool down before the oven door can be opened after a self cleaning cycle has finished. If the lock does not open after the oven has cooled down, you can try....1) Unplugging the range or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the range back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and try moving the door lock lever or opening the door. 2) Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever or opening the door.
Most ranges today use 3 different types of door locks...one is a solenoid controlled lock ( you hear a loud buzz noise when setting or unlocking the lock and has a arm that you must move to set the lock )...another is a heat sensitive lock ( has a arm that you must move to lock and un-lock, makes no noises and has a spring that slowly moves to lock the door will the oven is heating up )...Some locks are motorized ( no handle to move, the motor locks the door by it's self when you set the range for self clean )... If the motorized and heat sensitive locks fails to open after the self clean cycle, you must access the lock and move it yourself to open the door. On the free standing ranges, most times you must lift the cook top to access the lock mechanism. On built in ovens, the oven must be pulled out to remove the top access panel to get at the lock mechanism. Some build in ovens can have the control console removed to access the lock system. On the heat sensitive style of lock, there are no electrical parts to operate the lock, usually you will need to replace the lock. On the motorized style of lock, you will have to use a ohm/volt meter to test why the motor will not work. On the solenoid style of lock, the solenoid is often mounted on the back of the range and can be accessed by removing the rear panel, some may be mounted at the front, such as in a built in oven. The failure of the solenoid style of lock is normally caused by a bad lock solenoid. In order to get your door open, you must operate the door latch mechanism manually. Unplug or remove power from the range. Take the rear cover off the range. Locate the door latch assembly and operate it manually and open your door. Then check continuity of the solenoid. Some of the latch assemblies have micro switches to supply power also. You may need to check them. You should be able to get the door open and use your range until you can get a tech to repair if you can not repair yourself.
If you've interrupted the clean cycle or have accidentally set the clean cycle with the oven door open, the latch may have engaged and now the door can't be closed because it will hit the latch. There may be a door activated* switch on the front face of the oven. In this case you may need to manually press that door switch with your finger while at the same time canceling the clean cycle to get the latch to retract so the door can close fully again.
