Hi I have replaced the broken plastic door catch on my hoover vhv381 but the latch on the main part of the machine is now set in the locked position, meaning it can't close the door. I've tried turning the machine off at mains and forcing the latch open with a screwdriver but no luck. How do I replace the part? Looks like I would access it internally, but I'm no expert. Help!
