Good afternoon. My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you with your range today. If the lock light continues to flash and the door keeps randomly locking, this means that one of the switches on your door latch is opening or closing when it shouldn't be so the latch is rotating and trying to find the correct location. This is usually brought on by heat at first but as time goes on it'll start acting up intermittently even when the oven isn't in use. The latch assembly will need to be replaced to resolve this issue.
