Hmmm....that interlock is dependent on a temperature sensor, to ensure that no one opens that door when it's too hot inside. I'm assuming that it's still locked, even after the temperature has dropped off?

It locks so you dont open it during the cleaning cycle. It gets very hot so it burns everything stuck fast to a crisp. after cycle is over and temp drops it will unlock. dont worry about a small amount of fire as long as it dosent get too big it should be fine. Might make alot of smoke though.
Unplugged the stove and turn off the gas.Take the back off the oven and replace the thermostat. It's super easy. Before you buy the part call kitchen aid... this is a known problem. They will say the parts are not free and try to give you a discount. But if you continue to argue , they'll send it for free.
Unplug the appliance and the next day it will work again. Do not use the self clean cycle or I will have to spank you! Did you not know that 900 degrees for 3 hours can harm delicate expensive electronics. Get some easy off and clean that oven or get ready to spend some serious dough on fixing this puppy down the line.
look towards the center of the door, next to the "self clean latch" youll see a thin metl "plunger", try pressing this in and then restarting a clean cycle, then quicklly cancel clean it should reset the lock/latch mechanism
On most models, the door stays locked during a self clean, until the temperature returns to normal for safety reasons.
It sounds like your unit may have tripped a breaker during this self clean event. Check your panel for a tripped breaker. If the oven has cooled down, and the lock is still engaged, then we may have a different problem.
