I have a KitchenAid gas free standing oven. I was goind to clean it and opened the door to check inside just before it locked. Now the door is open and the locking mechanism is still out and the door can't close. Can I reset that myself? I tried letting it sit unplugged for awhile but that didn't help.

If you did not include a model # XXXXX your question please do on you second reply if possible,this helps us serve you faster.
