What usually breaks is
the door open lever, but it may also be that the rear side of the door open button has worn down too far to work.
Please unplug the oven before disassembly.

Once it is apart, you'll be able to see how the door open button would press against the door open lever, which would then lift up against the door latch heads (hook-like projections on the door) and the door should open.
You can usually find exploded views and get part numbers by entering your model number at the Sears parts site.
