Since there is no model number, I guess we should just start from the beginning

 

Let me see..for their first model, I think you test the "lock"  by picking up a rock to see if it is heavy enough to keep the lid closed.

Now, to test  the locking mechanism for their second model.....etc

Howdy Rocket, been a while.  Get the tech sheet inside the unit and put it in diagnostic mode so you can retrive the error codes and do lots of other cool tests.  If you're getting an F/dL error code, replace the door lock assembly.

If you're getting an F/11, that's usually a problem in the wiring harness.

fdl codes can also be caused by a bad relay on the main control board
