I just tried to use my self cleaning oven. I set the time, the oven beeped three times, and the door locked. a fan went on but the key pad went blank and doesn't say clean. the cancel button doesn't work. I hope that in 2 1/2 hours at least the door will unlock. what can I do?

Unplug it. Plug it back in, then press n hold start. Make sure lock handle is all the way locked. You may have to push on the door at same time while locking n unlocking. If that doesn't work, shoot it. Ha
I can't locate your model number, but, if you have the one with an electronic control..just put it to clean and maybe set the clean time and it should start the cycle and lock the door by itself and start cleaning.
if it has knobs for selector, and a knob for oven thremostat and a clock with two or three knobs.
put the selector on clean, put the thermostat on clean and then go to clock and set the stop time three hours past the time thats showing on your clock(providing its keeping time) and lock your oven door and it should start.....Bruce Denton
The oven self clean heats the oven in excess of 450 degrees. It will not begin until the door is properly closed and the slide lock goes completely home. This is to prevent anyone being able to get into the oven until after the cleaning cycle is done. When your "door lock" indicator blinks and beeps, try the door to see if it is really locked. If not, shut off the system and try to find out why it is not locking properly. If you find the reason and fix it, it will probably work properly.
For some reason the oven thinks you have a door that is not shut all of the way. Check the locking slot to make sure that there are no obstructions. Make sure that you are only doing one oven at a time, and not trying to cook in the other. Make sure you have no racks in the oven. Try pushing lightly on the door when the lock engages. For some reason your lock isn't engaging fully and that's why door is flashing. Good Luck
Below is from the owners manual for your oven.
Oven does not self-clean Door not shut tight Check for obstructions. Close door tightly
Oven set for delay timed cleaning Oven will start to self-clean at preset time.
Press CANCEL/SECURE to return to
Double ovens only: Other oven is on. Turn off other oven.
Generally There is a motor that lets the latch slide out and catch the door either this latch motor isn't getting power from the board or the motor is bad. You will have to need a volt meter and a wire diagram, and take the covers off to see the motor and board.
Always remove power until you get the item open and can see whats going on before reapplying power. If you don't feel confident I recommend calling in a repair man.
Door lock motor has probably failed.....Self clean on many ovens can be a self destruct mode. Door latch motors, sensor probes and even the electronic controls can be destroyed by this operation. On many freestanding stoves the lock motor is located in the right rear (looking from the front) with a long rod connected to the lock. remove the motor and unhook the rod from the motor cam. Sometimes bending a coat hangar into a hook and sliding from the right side into the lock you can unlock the door.
If you unplug the range and remove the lower rear cover on your left side you should see the motor with 2 switch's on it. There are 3 possibilitys with it. One of the switch's on the assembly is not working or the light switch for the door is not good. You also can disconect the lead to the motor and connect a power cord to it and that will unlock the door so you can check the dor switch also. if you do not feel comfortable powering up the lock motor then you should call a repair man. But one of the switches is not letting the computer know the dor is locked.
