Customer: replied 8 years ago.
i'm not completely sure...i think it might be SGM304?
Expert:  Randy 43 replied 8 years ago.

model# XXXXX like a cooktop not the range,but what you can try is putting the range back into selfclean,let it start up then in a minute or 2 cancel the self clean and see if it unlocks?other than that try turning off the breaker for a couple minutes and then try the same procedure

let me know what happens
