I came home today and my oven was beeping and had F9 on the front of the oven where the time usually is on the LCD screen. Thecleaning lady was heeretoday and I don't know if she did something or just cleaned the front of the oven. I tried calling her, but no response.   I also cannot open the oven door. It appearsto be locked, but when I hit the "lock" botton or hit cancel, I sometimes get a crackling noise. The noise goes for about 10 sedcondsand then stops.

The oven is locked and I cannot open it It is under thecounter so I cannot tell you any information on model number, etc. The countertop is atanotherpart of my kitchen =-
Does your oven have a storage drawer at the bottom?
If so you may pull the storage drawer out half way and see a sticker with the model and serial number on it in the door jam or on the frame where the drawer would cover it when closed

Unless you have a Slidin or dropin range.

I don't have a drawer. It is just an oven under the counter. It is one complete unit with a door and that door is locked -- it is a self-cleaning oven and all commands are bytouch -- it is electric
Okay lets try this.
Go to the breaker box for your home and turn the power for the oven off for 5 minutes!
There should be two switches controlling the oven.

This will reset the system and clear any electronic glitches.

I turned the circuit breakerback on and the oven crackled forabout 5 seconds with the time blinking then F9 came back on and nowit is beeping and thedoor isstill locked
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
So i guess I need to get someone from anappliancestore or someone who fix appliances here? Should I turn off the circuit breaker in the meantime tomake sure nothing will start a fire?
Yes,

You are hearing that crakel so turn it off and leave it off.
This sounds like a short making this noise!
