My cleaning lady sprayed the top oven with Easy-off. She did not heat the oven, just shut the door, waited an hour, then opened the door and wiped it clean.
I was not home at the time. :( When I got home, the oven was making noises like it was cycling heat, but the control panel showed only the time. When I opened the door, I was hit with a blast of heat. The only way to turn off the heat was to turn off the circuit breaker.
I have tried wiping down the elements while the oven is cold. I have tried adjusting the elements, to no avail.

First, unplug the oven, or turn off the circuit breaker to it - so long as power is cut to the oven. Leave it for about 5 minutes, then plug it back in or turn the circuit breaker back on and try to open the door.
If that doesn't work, turn on the self-cleaning cycle again, and let it run for about 15 minutes. Then turn it off and wait another 15 minutes, and see if the door will open.
If neither of those work, you have a more serious problem with the locking mechanism. Either a bad solenoid or a damaged heat locking mechanism. Both of these will require removing the stove top to access and repair. Let me know if the above suggestions fix the problem. If they don't, I will get you more specifics on repairing the locking mechanism - assuming you're up for that.
The best thing to do is with a cold oven, go ahead and use the Easy-Off non fume again and wait 2 hours. This should remove the original grease as well as the left over Easy Off from the 1st application.
Here are some solution on how to unlock the door of your oven ans do self cleaning below.
IF you can locate the model number tag (bottom left of door opening) you can look up the manual at www.geappliances.com The
only button on your stove that should make the door lock would be the
clean button (self clean model) if that is pressed simply hit the
clear/off or cancel key and wait for the door to unlock. IF the self
clean option ran for an hour or so, you will have to wait for the oven
to cool down before the lock can unlock (safety feature).hope this helps you out please rate this solution it helps get better results for our customers like you
Here are solution on how to clean up your oven below.
Remove oven racks and soak them in soapy water.
Turn on your automatic oven cleaner; this usually entails locking the door and turning the function switch to "clean."
Let the oven do its work;it will heat for several hours, charring off baked-on foods.
Remove oven racks and place them in soapy water to soak.
Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
Turn the oven off and spray the inside with oven cleaner.
Allow to sit for 10 minutes.
Wipe the cleaner and dirt away with a damp sponge, rinsing frequently.
FIRST TURN OFF POWER THEN SPRAY TOP WITH OVEN CLEANER AND LEAVE OVERNIGHT THEN CLEAN WITH STRONG PLASTIC BRUSH NOT A WIRE BRUSH AS THIS WOULD CAUSE DAMAGE , WHEN FINISHED CLEANING WASH WITH WARM WATER ,
most likely the safety latch got stuck from the super heat of the oven while cleaning. try tapping the latch with a screwdriver and hammer, spray a bit of wd-40 on it wont hurt. i believe the self cleaning on ovens is crazy, as the heat damages things, including the finish of the unit.
Frigidaire CGEB27S7CB built in wall oven. Set to clean oven yesterday and after cycle door stays in locked position. Can not open door. I tried re setting clean cycle and cancelling but will not unlock door.
I, too, have lost my manual and none of the timers work. I can never remember how long to run the clean cycle for, but will turn it off as it has been a little over 2hours and your post mentions 1.5hours.
I initiate the cleaning cycle by completing steps mentioned above and then turning the top dial (which has a clean range on it) clockwise until the clean light comes on. I then just time it by my watch to turn it all off. Then I wait a couple of hours before attempting to open the door. Don't forget to take the racks out, they are not suppose to go through the Clean cycle.
