After cooking at 425.
I went to hit the "broil button" and got the "clean" button instead.
I immediately hit Cancel and the cleaning stopped before it even started but now it wont unlock and let me at my dinner!

Seems the thermostat is malfunctioning...thus when baking at 500..thats quite high...it keeps getting hotter past that point to where the oven thinks its in self cleaning mode. Also seems like the problem because when it cools down your allowed to use it again. There is no way to test it with an ohmmeter. Just remove and replace.
If the fan assisted cooking programs are the only one not working and the oven is otherwise heating and cooking, then problems can be:
Fan motor. Wiring harness to fan. The relay that activates the fan. That is usually part of control module.
If instead the fan oven is not heating at all, then check if problem is with broiling, baking, or with both. If the problem affects both broiling or baking replace the temperature probe. before replacement the probe can be tested using an Ohm meter. The probe will read about 1080 Ohms at room if good.
If problem is only with one of baking/broiling functions, then test elements or valve/ignitors, depending if oven is gas or electric.
During the self clean cycle, oven temp will exceed 900 degrees F. At these temps, if you opened the door, the food inside would immediately catch on fire when the supply of oxygen hit it. When you turn your self clean cycle off, the oven door will remain locked until the internal temp drop below aprox. 550 degrees F for your safety. Once the oven cool below this temp, you will be able to start using the bake or broil again. This should be a Fix-Ya for your oven.
Maryann, try shutting the breaker off for 5 minutes and see if the door unlocks. Im assuming the oven has cooled down. If that doesn't work try holding the cancel and broil pads for 3 seconds. This will put it into the quik test mode. Once in this mode press the clean button. This should toggle between lock and unlock. Don't know if this will work for you but it's worth a try..Catriver...post back.
