Re: lock for selfcleaning oven did not retract all the...
Try setting the self clean letting it lock and then hitting the cancel button. usually take a min or to to see if it will retract itsself. the only other option would be to tap it lightly with a hammer so you can use the oven and replace the latch

During self clean the oven controller locks the door to ensure one does not accidentally open the door and get insured due to high temperature. The door lock mechanism is unlocked once the temperature comes to normal when self clean is complete. In your case the controller is still sensing high temperature but the door lock mechanism has been released. This could mean the controller is detecting incorrect signal. Try to turn the mains power to oven off and back on. If this does not make a difference then you need to check the temperature sensor or worst the controller needs to be checked.
As I do not have the model number of the oven it is hard to give further diagnostic information.
The F9 code indicates there is a problem with the door lock.
Try disconnecting the power to the range for 10 seconds and reconnecting. Open the oven door and hold the door switch plunger in while you try these things. Put the control into clean for 5 minutes then cancel clean. You must hold the door switch plunger in for the 5 minutes.
Try canceling the clean cycle without putting the control into clean.

When the oven goes into clean mode the door is automatically locked as a safety feature. I would put it back into clean mode again, let it clean for a while and then hopefully when it cools down the door will open. good luck .
It locks automatically. You can download the manual from Frigidaire here (as I just discovered while trying to figure out how to use the self-cleaning feature :) ): http://www.frigidaire.com/support/manuals.asp?NewSearch=New+Search
You don't need to type in the whole model number. For example, if the model number (found in the upper left when you open the oven door) is RSE37BAW*4, you only need to enter RSE37BA.
