Hello. If the screw hole is stripped, you can repair that by using some one minute epoxy and a wooden match stick to make the hole smaller. Just work quickly in this sequence:
1. force some epoxy into the hole.
2. put epoxy on the match stick and push it into the hole.
3. Break off the match stick so it is not too long
4. Align everything and drive the screw in to the repaired hole.
5. let it set up for a few minutes before using it. J.

Hi - Welcome to FixYa.
Many ovens, including Maytag, have a built in safety feature which prevents opening of the oven door for about 1 hour after the self-cleaning cycle has finished. The self-clean feature works at a much higher temperature than the maximum cooking temperatures so it's designed to prevent access until the oven is fully cooled.
If you have already waited an hour and still can't open it, try leaving it a little longer. If it still doesn't open or you've already been waiting at least an hour, please post back for further assistance.
Hope this helps.
