Either the control is getting a message that the oven is too hot (> 600* F) or the latch circuit has issues. Is the oven very hot?

May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
does the door not have to be locked to use the oven , if I should shut the circuit and turn it back on would it over ride the system and maybe then i could open the door?

The door will only lock if the temperature is above about 600* F or the self clean cycle has been selected. Any error codes displayed?
