Climb inside and remove access panel to force-unlock mechanism. Then lube and exercise before reassembly.

If you haven’t already pulled the panel like above ^^, make sure the handle is completely pushed in (not pulled out any like you’re opening) and then try unlocking the doors and opening the hatch.
