Sometimes when the door seems jammed it is because the mechanism is stuck - you can try spraying some WD40 or similar lubricating oil around any exposed parts of the mechanism when the door is open, or try banging the door with a rubber mallet to help loosen the mechanism and release the lever so that the door can be opened.
