Question about Tappan TGF320 Gas Kitchen Range
Seems this is a common problem recently (bad batch of touch pads?) My Elite oven spontaneously locked up and won't unlock. Pad unresponsive. Un plugging ineffective
None of above worked for me. But, gave me a clue. I pressed the Stop/Clear button for apprx 10 sceonds. the "door locked" flashed for 5 seconds and then cleared and the door unlocked. Panel worked fine after that.

Kenmore Elite Glasstop model lower oven door lockup - we found that if you reset the time on the control panel, the oven door unlocked, and the problem was cleared.

By 'locked up' do you mean the door locked shut, or the controls give no response?
Did you recently perform a self clean cycle? Sometimes during the self clean, a high temp thermostat blows, and the door will not unlock.
If it's the controls, you can try cleaning the contacts where the touchpad plugs into the clock. You may need to replace the touchpad. The clock could be bad, too. Sometimes the touchpad and clock are sold as one piece.
Unfortunately, there's no good way to determine which one it is without changing parts until the symptoms disappear.

Yes, the clock and touchpad are one piece. I replaced the ciruit board for $185. (Pull out old, plug in new) Now works fine.
