I have an error code 41 on m range when I tried to clean it. The door is locked and won't release. The oven is cool (never actually was on long enough to heat up). I also tried shutting off the breaker to get it to release but no lock.
Is there a way to get the lock to release

Make a small half loop on the coat hanger and pull to right from left

If you are unable to get it open, you would have to dissemble from the top to gain access
