Question about Ovens
Welcome to FixYa.
The fuse/hi-limit is located at the back, but you will need to remove the rear panel to access it and change it out. Unfortunately it is not a resettable type and will need to be replaced.
**unplug the unit from the wall or insure the breaker is OFF before servicing...safety first**
This image indicates what you're looking for. Part #9759242
It is available at "repairclinic.com" as the image would indicate. If you follow the link here it will also give you pointers on how to check it.
Likely not necessary since it is pretty obvious to be tripped, but that's up to you.
Let me know what you find. If this is something you think is not within' your scope of expertise please call a pro.
I will try to help in any manner I can of course as well. Good luck.

It seems to be a thermal fuse on the back of the oven.There is two I believe, you would have to ohm them out and see which one is bad. That is after you check the breakers and voltage going to the unit. You'll need to uninstall the entire oven and remove the back panel to see the part mounted to the back of your oven. Below is a link to the part you'll need to order and replace.
Look at the below picture ( generic ) :-
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

You can start the self cleaning cycle again and then stop it after 15 minutes, then let the oven cool for sometime and check if the door opens again, if the not then you have to take a screw driver and open the latch. You can also try to press and hold the light switch; the "locking mechanism" resets itself and then the door will open. Engaging the light switch for several seconds resets the entire locking mechanism and overrides the "Stop/Clear" button. After this the latch mechanism should be replaced as it is bad. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Tips for a great answer:
You can set the unit on self cleaning and then after 15
minutes stop the cycle, let it cool down for an hour and then open the door. If
the issue remains then you'll have to replace the door lock assembly, then you
can open the door with a coat hanger by pulling the latch towards you. Hope
this helps...please post back for further assistance.
