The only thing you can do is to pull the range out from the wall and unplug it. Remove the back panel and you can see a latch motor with a rod attached to it that goes up to the lock in the front. Remove the lock motor and you can move the rod so that you can release the latch in the front. Then replace the lock motor if you can't see anything physically wrong with why it wouldn't open.
