Until it is fixed, you can (with almost all models unless a locking lever-latch type) open the door by just grabbing the two upper corners and pulling out (use hotpads if oven is hot).

Some types the mounting screws just come through from inside the door - see if there are loose/fallen out screws in there you can just screw back into the handle. Otherwise, because some oven doors have the glass window and insulation strips fall out when you remove the inside panel screws, I would recommend getting an Appliance Repair - Large repair tech out to fix it.

If just a matter of the mounting screws/bolts coming loose, probably about $75-175 repair bill (whatever minimum service call charge is in your area). If the handle broke, more likely about $200-250 range because likely to require 2 trips - one to diagnose, second to install new handle when it comes in, because that would almost certainly not be an in-stock item.

But when you call, have the make and model and serial number ready for him (usually on stick-on or riveted metallic or metal plate on oven door or doorframe, or sometimes on inside or outside of bottom pan drawer or the frame showing when drawer is open - he might just have the part in stock at the shop and be able to bring it with him in case it is needed.
