Have a 2005 Frigidaire electrolux slide/drop in stove. door stopped locking within 2 years of purchase so unable to use the clean feature. I can deal with that but when cleaning the oven accidentally turned the latch. Now oven says it is locked and the oven will not turn on. Any suggestions before I throw it out. Model PLES389DCC serial NF40806558

It was. However I was able to turn the latch and close the door and now it still says it is locked

okay the door lock switch is engaged, that is very difficult to get to. do you have any tools and would be able to move the stove out to get to the back ?
