Make sure the doors are closed tight - freezer door may open a crack when frig side closes.
If door is tight, make sure the door gasket makes a tight seal. Often they need to be cleaned (409 is my favorite) or they get twisted. They also sometimes come away from the door in spots. Pay attention to the bottom seal which you usually don't notice in daily use.

most likely the door locked due to an overheat situation. It's a safety feature on most ovens made today. It may be caused by a fan motor not running properly thus allowing area above oven cavity to sense extreme temperature, blockage in air flow pattern, or a bad temperature control.
Whatever the cause, it's best to have a tech take care of this issue for you to prevent danger to you and your family.
That sounds a bit unusual.... Does the fan come on when you turn on the oven on bake? How about on broil? How about on self-clean. If it comes on in all those settings, then it may be working as designed. If NOT, they there may be a crossed wire, or you may have a malfunctioning control.
Sounds like water has gotten into the foam insulation or the unit was left closed for a period of time with no power (not running). You may want to try putting a box of baking soda inside the frig and freezer. Place the boxes to the back on one of the shelves as close to the fans as possible. If that doesn't work you may have to shut it down and leave the doors open for a week with baking soda still inside or 2 to 3 days with a fan forcing air into it constantly still with baking soda inside, of course the food inside would have to be removed.
The door is not tight per say. The seal is hat determines if it is properly closed. Check to see if the seal is tight all the way around(use a strip of paper to check consistency). If it is not sealing the hinges are tweeked and need replacing. Eric
