Customer Question

I tried to self clean my bosch oven and it was fine until I used the built in bosch microwave above. When the microwave started, the self cleaning stopped and error 41 appeared on the display. Now the oven is not clean and I can't open my oven door. Please help! I referred to the manual and turned off the oven at the circuit breaker for 5 minutes to try to reset the oven. It didn't work. What should I do next?

There is nothing else I can try? I have only cleaned my oven one other time. I hardly use it. so I don't understand how the door lock mechanism would need to be replaced already.
