Re: the lock is locked
It should unlock as soon as the temp drop low enough if not you could put it into self clean again wait a couple of seconds then cancel it in the hopes the motor just got stuck otherwise your motor broke and you would have pull the oven out of the wall and disasemble it enough to manually turn the motor

Some ovens have a latch handle between the top of the door and the actual range top that you have to push sideways to lock. May also be a lock button you have to push in while moving the latch handle.
If you don't see the latch handle, The lock system may be the hidden type that should lock automatically when set to clean. Once the oven is set properly for clean, a motor will latch the door by itself. After the oven gets close to clean temperature, the latch gets locked out and the door will not open until the clean cycle is complete and oven cools down to normal room temperature again. This is a safety feature so you can't open the door while the oven is at clean temp (about 850 degrees). Hope this explains enough. If door never auto latches, could be a problem with the latch/lock system and motor.
There might be many reasons for the same. First, Unplug the same for few minutes and then Turn it back ON. Check, if the problem is solved.
If not, let me know along with few details :-
1. Do you see any error message ? 2. Is there any Self Clean option in this Model.If yes, have done that before all this happened? 3. Is this a permanent or intermittent issue? 4. What have you done to fix this? 5. How old this oven is? 6. Do you hear any humming noise?
Open the door. In the upper left corner, press and hold the door switch (the one that controls the inside light). Start a self clean cycle and wait for lock motor to engage. When the lock stops moving it should be in the unlocked position. Press cancel to stop the self clean.
If you need more assistance let me know. Good luck!
First press and hold the cancel/off button for 10 seconds.
If that does not work you have a bad thermal switch due to excessive heat buildup. Possibly a bad fan motor.
The 2 thermal switches are located on top of the oven behind the control panel.
set both start & stop timers to the same time.Turn on the selector and the temperature knobs to clean. Hold in the light button, on the right top side of oven, and hold for 15 seconds.
then turn off the selector knob. hold button again for 15 seconds and the lock should unlock,
then turn off the temperature knob.
I had the same problem today. After I cleaned my self cleaning oven the cycle went back to normal but the oven door would not open even though the screen was clear and didn't read locked. I held the stop button for 3 second, I don't remember what the message said on the screen but I held the stop button in again for 3 seconds and the screen said locked then I did it again and the screen said door and the oven opened. I don't know, maybe it was just sheer luck it's worth a try. I'm happy.
