From what you’re describing it sounds like the self-cleaning door lock is stuck. Open the oven door & push in the oven door light switch. While someone holds in the light switch, set the control up for a self-cleaning cycle. Let the self-cleaning cycle run for only about 5-6 minutes & then press stop/cancel. This should cause the door lock to retract.
