Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

You should just need to press the cancel/off button to reset the self cleaning. if that doesn't work, flip the breaker off to your oven for 60 seconds and that will reset the oven. If the oven is hot, it will not unlock until it cools down.
