Question about Ovens
HI. There are only two ways to do this. It all depends on the cause of this issue. The self cleaning function can be unstable if there are wiring issues at the control board or door latch assembly. If there is a failure at the monitoring thermostat/temp sensor, this will cause the relay contacts at the board to weld, thus, severing communication to and from the door locking mechanism. Another cause will be as stated in your post. With that said, kindly shutdown the appropriate circuit breaker for five minutes. This will force your main PCB into reset mode. Once the five minutes has passed, simply, reintroduce power to the affected unit and try to operate the oven. If the door locking mechanisms refuses to unlock after the five minutes hard reset, this will confirm that the main control board has failed. It must be replaced, in that case.
The second way to release the lock will be to disassemble the top section of the unit. this will expose the locking mechanism and its moving parts. I do not suspect that you will need to go to this extreme measure.
