I'm happy that this isn't a dishwasher issue, but I'm sad I have an issue with another appliance.  We came home from church tonight and we were about to bake some Christmas cookies, but the oven door was locked.  I pulled a few times and it came right open.  That is great except now it won't latch back.  The mechanism rotates and I can clearly see where it is getting hung on the latch frame.  I can wiggle it a little and it will rotate, but the door can't wiggle it.  I figure that a new latch would do the trick, but I can't figure out how to remove "something" so I can reach the screws.  Do I have to remove the microwave to get to the top of the oven or do I remove the oven to access the assembly?  None of the guides I can find explain how to remove either just the oven or just the microwave.
