Is the door locked? Can you open it?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Expert:  william replied 3 years ago.

When you open the door look where the latch is in the middle. Is the latch sticking out?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
yes. latch is sticking out
Expert:  william replied 3 years ago.

Ok that means that the oven thinks that the door is locked.When in reality its not.
