It is possible that the lever has been bent somehow. If you can lift the top of the oven as if you were cleaning it. look at the lever mechanism, move it to the other position and push it back carefully, to bend it back. I have seen this happen a lot, people lean on the oven, the lever is in the open position and it is pushed a little bending it so when it is moved to close it doesn't go far enough to release it. I am assuming you have waited for the oven to cool down before you tried this first right?

I just took my oven door off and took it apart to clean the glass inside. I don't have a maytag but they probably all work alike. Just open the door like you are going to broil something and just lift it up. It should slide right off. Shouldn't have to unscrew anything. Hope this helps. Arlene

To replace the door glass do the following:
0 Check if there is a hinge stop bracket located at the hinge point of entry on the oven, in that case remove it.
1 remove the oven door by pulling it up and removing from the the hinges. If glass is broken , then secure glass with tape. Have a table with a cloth on top ready to lay the door.
2 Remove the outer screws , starting from lower side of the panel.
3Removethe inner screws. Keep all set of screws ordered, and take note of theorder you remove them. You will follow reverse order in reassembly.
4 the frame will be free now,
5 Remove the external glass panel and leave it in a safe place.
6 Replace the inner glass.
7 Clean outer glass and metal door, re-assemble it and mount it back
I also report testimonials for your model:
"removed the door from the oven by releasing clips attached to the door hinge -- very nicely engineered. Removed about 6 philips head screws to allow the door assembly to be taken apart for access to the glass. Lifted out the broken glass, cleaned the inside of the door, installed the new glass, reassembled the door (a two minute project), and reattached the door to the oven. Cleaning the inside of the door"
"I removed the oven door by lifting it off with the hinges. Disassembled the door parts one at time making sure I remember where I removed the screws until I am able to get to the broken glass. The most difficult part is making sure that the insulation strip & the gasket stayed in place after I replaced the broken glass & doing the reverse process of installing the parts together. Relatively easy process as long as you remember where the parts go. When in doubt, I had to refer to the pictorial of the disassembled door shown on your website. "

Thank you for your post, Karen!
Typically the door of your Electrolux Icon wall oven has a lot of layers. Regrettably, this is not a simple DIY job. I would highly recommend reaching out to an expert technician to ensure the replacement part is installed correctly to prevent future issues. I hope this information helps to some degree. -Matt

I am not sure about your oven model. I had a similar problem in my oven. The hinges are riveted to the oven and can be fixed.
First remove the oven door - normally the door slides on to two prongs on either side and is screwed down.
Once the door is removed check the mechanism that holds the two prongs to the oven body. Mine were held with stainless steel rivets that had worn out and became wobbly. Cut the rivets and replace them with new ones. You can get a rivet driver and the stainless steel rivets for under $20 at Home Depot.
Hope this works for you.
