Hi-My Kenmoore Elite Gas Oven/Range locked itself, and I cant

This answer was rated:

Hi-My Kenmoore Elite Gas Oven/Range locked itself, and I can't get the electronics to reset. The clock and timer are still operational, but all other functions are not working. In addition to locking, the beeping no longer works. This happened when it was not in use. I had another similar issue when somehow an ant got into the electronic face, and as it ran around, the electronics were all going off wildly, particularly the timer. I turned on the oven, in between crazy changes in commands, and the heat forced the ant to exit. Any suggestions? The oven is a couple of years old, and I would not expect the electronics to go haywire on their own at this point.
