Unplug the machine and where the lid is latched you can push a piece of wire wire in the same hole it latches through. The wire will bottom out after in the hole about a inch. Push it slightly farther and try raising lid as your pushing. All the lock is is a metal tab that pushes up and down. After time the enclosure it's attached to splits and makes it fail but it can be opened with whatever goes farther in that hole then the latch itself.
