We had this same problem in September, 2007. Ours was the result of a burned out motor on the latch assembly. I didn't want to shell out $450 for service calls (without the cost of parts), so found the following information and parts and did the repairs ourselves - for about $120 and a couple of hours work. For the record: we have no connections to www.repairclinic.com, except to order parts.
You can get the range service manual at: http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=824600&PPStack=1
The part you'll probably need is:
The manual says to virtually disassemble the oven to get the part out, but my husband got around that by wrapping one end of a 3 foot piece of flexible wire tightly around the locking mechanism. He removed the back range cover, unscrewed the latch assembly and carefully drew it out without disarranging the insulation inside the range. Then he wrapped the wire around the new latch assembly and gently pulled it through to the front. Secure all parts again.
Our range has worked great since we did this fix, although he said it would've been cheaper to just replace the little motor on the latch assembly. It would be simple for someone with a moderate skill level to just pull the latch assembly out a little bit and wire a new motor on. Good luck!

I had the same problem. Unplugging the oven didn't solve it, as the same "F9" message appeared when restarted.
Here's what worked: start a cleaning cycle, and then hit cancel. I leaned on the door just a little, the latch stopped making the "clicking" noise, and then the lock light turned off and the door opened.

Happens alot dont feel bad , self clean mode runs the elements at 500 deg. to cook off everything possible , what happens is the cabinet gets to hot and heats saftey temp. fuses until they go out and they are not resetable. they are always located in different areas of ranges but usaully in the back. you can ohm them out to check them if you have a meter.let me know if you have any other questions.

Solution #3 was very helpful. Took off the back panel and found the small black fuse. Removed the fuse and joined the two black wires, oven now turns on and oven door opens. Don't think it would be to safe to leave like this but going to get the part and put the fuse back in myself. Very easy to fix (just a million screws) so save yourself the expensive service charge!!!!
