The problem is that the heating element and front control panel is not sitting in correctly. Remove the heating element/front control panel. Grab the heating element and gently pull it away from the control panel. Use care as you can break the elements off of the control panel. Reinsert and attempt to close the lid. If it does not close, then repeat this process being careful to not over bend the elements. The lid uses two plastic extensions to latch to the control panel and if the control panel is extended away from the fryer front, the lid will not latch. Also the fryer will not work as there are sensors in the control panel to sense if it is close enough to the fryer.
If the lid will not stay open, there should be a small spring in the hinge. I am not sure of your model, But some have a safety interlock that will not allow operation with the lid open. These usually have a feature of raising and lowering the basket with the lid closed like some chemistry experiment!
What's wrong with a manual wire basket?
If the spring is not fitted correctly, or missing, it's fiddly but not impossible to replace.
