Try setting back into the selfclean mode. The door should finalize the locking action after which you can cancel selfclean and it should then unlock. If this doesn't do it, the locking mechanism could be disengaged (broken), which will require an experienced tech to open the door for you for temporary use until a repair part is installed.
If you want to try unlatching it manually, try a THICK coat hanger. Bend one end at a 90 degree angle.With it at a horizontal position, insert it over the top edge of the door 2 inches to the right of center, rotate it 90 degrees (so the bent end is pointing straight down) and slowly pull it to the left in an attempt to pull the latch hook to the open position. You will have to "wiggle" the door slightly as you pull the latch. Use caution not to jam the hanger in place and PLEASE TURN OFF THE POWER BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY DO-IT-YOURSELF REPAIRS. Good luck.
sounds like you have a bad door lock mechanism/ can try one thing . open door, hold door light switch in if you have one on your model not all models do.then turn on self clean let it run for about 5 minutes and see if it resets itself if it does great its fixed, if not your lock latch may be bad. part is roughly 45-85 dollars and labor 75-125 depending were you live.hope this helps.
I've seen this problem on my own oven. If yours, like mine, has a door that has a locking mechanism, the catch is most likely stuck in the locked position. The door still closes and the lever still moves (though it may be very stiff).
Take off the screws around the locking plate, manually push the catch to the open position, spray the catch VERY, VERY lightly with WD-40 and dry it thoroughly. Close the oven door and try the lever again.
At this point, it should move freely and your oven should be able to switch between LOCKED/Self-Clean Mode and UNLOCKED/Cook Mode. If it does still get stuck, you'll just has to a) try lubricating the catch a bit more or b) keep a screwdriver handy! ;)
You will need to allow oven to cool, the temperature is one thousand degrees plus while the oven is cleaning. Until the oven cools it will not open, this is a safety caution. If it will not open after it is totally cooled, it may be stuck, try pushing on the door or pulling it out a bit while trying to move the lever.
Always consult the owners manual when using the cleaning mode on your oven. Be sure it is fully cooled before cleaning any residue out of oven area.
Try this to get the oven door open. Turn off the power, take a coat hanger and bent at 90 degree angle about 2 inches long. Turn the wire side ways along the top of the door, 2 inches to the right of center, turn your wire so the bent piece is down. Now pull out on the door and move the wire to the left. This should unlock your door so you can get to dinner. What may have happened is that the broil got above 500 degrees at the oven sensor and locked the door for safety. That does happen
