During self clean the oven controller locks the door to ensure one does not accidentally open the door and get insured due to high temperature. The door lock mechanism is unlocked once the temperature comes to normal when self clean is complete. In your case the controller is still sensing high temperature but the door lock mechanism has been released. This could mean the controller is detecting incorrect signal. Try to turn the mains power to oven off and back on. If this does not make a difference then you need to check the temperature sensor or worst the controller needs to be checked.
As I do not have the model number of the oven it is hard to give further diagnostic information.
You say you checked the thermal fuse but did you check the broil element for continuity. Most ovens use the broil element for the clean function. The thermal fuse will shut off both the bake and the broil element.
I was wrong (I think). the baking element probably was burnt out as the repairman said. He replaced it and I thought selfclean still wasn't working. In fact, I think I just had to give the self-clean function more time. Also, I was judging by smell. We have become used to a bad odor during self clean which was missing when it was broken and still missing after the repair. Bottom line, the oven was clean after the baking element was replaced, sans smell.
