Question about Kitchen Ranges
Should be able to hold the lock button for about 15 seconds. And it should unlock. There should be a little icon of a lock on one of the buttons.

Unplug the unit or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the unit back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.
Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever (is so equipped) or opening the door.
If these procedures fail to correct the condition, the lock must usually be accessed and moved manually to open the door.
Some model ovens require the oven door to be manually unlatched before the controls are returned to the OFF position or else the door may not be able to be unlocked. Check the owner's manual for proper operating procedures.

On these units they have a self resetting device that you will need to activate this is done by unplugging the oven for at least one hour then plugging it back in and wait for 5 min then press the normal cancel button or you might even hear a click sound then you will be allowed to unlock it okay and close the door hope this helps you out please rate this solution it helps get better results for our customers like you
best regards mike.
The only button on your stove that should make the door lock would be the clean button (self clean model) if that is pressed simply hit the clear/off or cancel key and wait for the door to unlock.
If the self clean option ran for an hour or so, you will have to wait for the oven to cool down before the lock can un-lock (safety feature).
Thank you and thanks for using fixya.

Might help if you are able to provide the oven make and model no. Cannot see that has been posted.
I do not see what suggestions have been made by other fixya consultants - but I will try to help you diagnose once you post the model no.
I am assuming you have already tried to turn the power off and on at the circuit breaker.
