The lock symbol means that the oven latch is somewhere between the locked and unlocked position. Open the oven door and locate the little plastic push button switch in the upper right corner around the front frame of the oven cavity. This is your door switch. Push this switch in all the way or tape it pushed in completely. Rest the circuit breaker on your house and come back and wiggle the latch in case it's sticking. If after 2 minutes the unit keeps saying "oven door", that little switch in the upper right corner needs to be replaced because it doesn't think the door is closed even when the switch is pushed. Below is a link to the part.
