Question about Ovens
The door will not unlatch after numerous attemptsand opening the breaker for an extended period of time.
This happened to me, had the appliance repairman come out to fix. He hit and held a combination of buttons on the oven controls and reset the panel somehow. But now I don't know what he hit to clear it. Do any of you?

The problem may very well be in one of the micro switches on the self cleaning motor bracket. These switches control the electrical flow to the heating elements. In the owners manual there is/should be a chart that lists the unlock and safety combinations. This would be your best source of information.

SOURCE: Flashing locking door light
the door's locking mechanism is controlled by a switch when you shut the door down. much like the light switch on your refrigerator. when you initial closing the switch for locking the door will be triggered does locking the door.
there is a possibility that this switch on your oven is press / stuck that is why it keeps on saying "locking door" which will eventually never be completed.
Find the switch on your door panel, this is usually near the hinge of the door. it can also be safely located with in the hinge assembly, if this is true, there will be no buttons or holes visible.
if you can open the door panel up or remove the casing you will be able to locate the switch on the door hinge and its assembly.
hope this helps.

I turned off circuit breaker to the oven and tried to open it. It did not. I did it again and waited for a few minutes, it worked and I was able to open the door.
