Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you with your Maytag oven. Please give me a moment to review your question.
Can you please give me the model number?
Did you try to look along the door frame, the hinge, and the ceiling?
If it is a range, pull the drawer out and look at the left leg.
Ok, please give me a moment to look that up.
If you open the door and find the lock latch, try moving it back and forth to attempt to free it up.
Ok, it probably connects to some switches under the top that makes the oven think that it is locked. One or more of those switches may be stuck.
You may need to get to the latch mechanism to see if something spilled on it or the switches. One moment.
You will need to lift the top up a little. To do that, there are 2 screws on either side - underneath on the right and left corners. Turn the breaker off, remove those screws and gently lift the top and place something soft under it to hold it up.
You need to locate the latch assembly and examine and cycle the switch or switches on it to make sure they function. They may just be stuck.
Do you feel comfortable doing this?
Hello are you still there?
Is there anything else I can answer for you?
