After setting this range to the self-cleaning cycle, and running through it, we cannot get the oven door to open; it remains locked. This happened to us on Thanksgiving afternoon. Talk about frustration!
So how do we get our door to open?

Perhaps it hasn't cooled down enough; or you may have to run the self-cleaning cycle again. The oven has to reach a certain temperature before it starts to turn the residue to ash.You may have interrupted its cycle.
It then has to cool off sufficiently to safely open the door.
the self clean cycle will run for 2-3 hrs and the door will remain locked for another couple hrs while cooling let it finish and wait till the next day basically if it still wont open (sorta common) the door lock assy needs replacing.
CLEAN PAD Use to set a self-clean cycle or a delayed self-clean cycle. One press of the Clean pad sets up an immediate clean cycle. A second press of the Clean pad sets up a delayed clean cycle. • Clean oven frame, door frame (area outside of gasket) and around the opening in the door gasket with a nonabrasive cleaner such as Bon Ami*. These areas are not exposed to cleaning temperatures. • Remove air grille. • Remove oven racks. If racks are left in during a clean cycle, it may impair function and they will discolor. Turn off the oven light and close door. * Brand names for cleaning products are registered trademarks of the respective manufacturers. TO SET FOR IMMEDIATE START: 1. Press Clean pad once. 2. Press the Auto Set pad for 3 hours of cleaning time, press again for 4 hours and again if 2 hours of clean time are desired. 3. CLEANING and LOC plus the clean time will appear in the display. 4. When the clean cycle is complete, CLEANED will be displayed. LOC will remain on until the oven has cooled (approx. 1 hour). 5. When the oven is cool, LOC will no longer be displayed and the door may be opened. 6. Wipe out the oven interior with a damp cloth. If soil remains it indicates the cycle was not long enough.
TO CANCEL SELF-CLEAN: 1. Press Cancel pad. 2. If LOC is NOT displayed, open oven door. If LOC is displayed, allow oven to cool.
Thanks for using Fix Ya, Please take the time to rate this solution.
Had this EXACT same problem the day before a party where I needed the oven for lots of baking.... Tried all sorts of things, was about to call a repair man- I FINALLY got it to open by following the first two directions for putting it into self clean mode (turned both knobs to CLEAN), then when it said to lock door I tried to move the lock lever and bam it worked! Give it a shot! Good luck! (:
This is not a problem. The cleaning cycle goes on for approximately 4 hours as I recall. it will unlock by itself when done. Read your user guide for troubleshooting tips. if you can't locate your copy, one is available on line at the Jenn-Air site
