Question about Ovens
THE OVEN RESPONDER FAILED, AFTER MUCH SEARCHING I FOUND WHAT I THOUGHT WAS AN EXACT REPLACEMENT BECAUSE THE PATENT NUMBER ON THE PARTS WAS IDENTICAL WHICH WAS THE ONLY NUMBER THAT I COULD COMPARE. WHEN THE PART ARRIVED IT IS IDENTICAL EXCEPT FOR ONE TERMINAL THAT IS RIVETED ON THE OLD PART, THE NEW PART HAS THE SAME RIVET BUT THERE IS NO TERMINAL TO CONNECT A WIRE. THE INTERNAL CONSTRUCTION IS IDENTICAL, THERE IS A WIRE ON THE RIVET ON THE INSIDE OF THE NEW PART BUT NO WAY TO CONNECT A WIRE EXTERNALLY. THE WIRE THAT CAN'T BE CONNECTED GOES TO A MOMENTARY CONTACT ON THE LOCK SWITCH. I TAPED OFF THE WIRE AND THE OVEN ACTUALLY WORKED ON SUNDAY 11-2, BUT ON TUESDAY 11-4 I TRIED THE OVEN AGAIN AND THE INDICATOR LIGHT THAT CYCLES ON AND OFF WITH THE OVEN ELEMENT COMES ON FOR ABOUT 3 SECONDS AND THEN GOES OUT.

SOURCE: ge oven door locked
You oven is locked because it is self-cleaning. Some how the handle got moved and it initiated. You may need to let the oven finish self-cleaning. Usually, it can take about an hour to complete the process. Afterward, the oven will beep when done and your oven can be opened. Good luck.

There is usually a micro switch that is activated when the lock lever is in place - very likely this switch is still activated or has failed closed (defective) .

SOURCE: Replacing ERC on GE oven
I ran into the same problem replacing my new part. The instructions indicated that the GROUND wasn't used. The Nuetral was located in near the same position. The L1B went to the little black box near the vacant L1B location on the board
