Do you mean the fan inside the oven box in the back wall. This is the fan for the Convection bake etc. If so this is how it works..
a) Bake feature - that fan does not come on
b) Convection bake - that fan comes on during bake cycle
So that fan works for several features but not for all. It helps to circulate the hot air inside better for a more even, fast bake.
Do you mean the fan in the control board area. It is there to get the hot air trapped in the oven walls out. Not the heat inside the oven bake box area. This fan works differently depending the model and/or brand. Some models fan works from the time you start. Some models fan comes on only when that area reaches a certain high temperature.
Unfortunately you have found out the hard way about the self cleaning feature... they cause many problems...
Here is a tip that I wrote about that and it includes some things you can try to get you oven to unlock...
this could be the timer is set to auto

TUTORIALS1, If the fan motorin the back of the oven is going round and
the temperature light is on (normally little red light), but there is no heat
then you will probably need a new oven element, these are generally very easy
to fit and readily available from our website these can be tested with a
electric meter. To gain access to the element you will
have to remove the back plate from inside the oven. Once removed you will see
the fan and element, if you
look closely at the elementyou will
probably see a small hole burnt in it where it has blown. Sometimes however
there is no evidence of a fault but the elementis open circuit ie:
broken inside the element casing, either way it will need replacing. Some
elements will are fixed from inside the oven and some are held in place by nuts
from the rear of the machine. 2, If your fan oven is getting warm but takes a very long time to
cook or is burning the food more on one side than the other, then you need to
check if your oven fan motoris working you will
see the blade turning fast if it is ok. if the element is heating but the fan motoris not blowing the heat into the oven then
you need To replace the oven fan motoris a little more
expensive and a bit more involved. 3. If you have the opposite problem ie: your oven is over heating
and burning everything then you will need to replace youroven thermostat 4, A quite common and easily overlooked answer is if youroven is not working at all ie: no heat
and no fan then the chances are that someone has put the oven timerinto AUTO mode,
simply put oven back to MANUAL mode and all should be working again.
