Okay perfect, the lock latch assembly on this particular model is in the back of the range which is actually good, you can get the door open by pulling the range out and disconnecting the rod that runs to the front for the latch hook. The rod is connected to this which is the motor assembly. your lock motor has failed and will need to be replaced, this is not something you can fix by pressing certain buttons although I would make sure that the control is not in child lock mode before doing anything else. try pressing and holding the clear/off button in for 5 seconds and see if the control itself unlocks. let me know.
