Most likely, the high temp from the clean cycle (over 900 degrees on some models) has deformed the small microswitch contacts on the door latch assembly so it doesnt know what position it is stuck in. You will need to get to the door latch catch or rod , release it and repair the fault. Most of the time you can access the latch assy from behind the grill or under the smooth top if this is one..

After checking out some other sites I found this suggestion that worked: turn the circuit breaker off for 5 minutes, turn it back on, start the self-clean cycle, then interrupt it. The oven door unlocked.

Smile a solution that worked for me

I have an older (2000 model - ARGS7650WW) Amana gas oven/range. The door latch got stuck between locked & unlocked when I tried to clean it and made an annoying beeping noise about every 30 seconds (until I hit cancel) and prevented us from using the unit. We shut off power to the stove for about 30 minutes (5 would probably work). When it came back on, the LOCK light was still on in the display, but I opened the door, pushed in the button to fool it into thinking the door was shut and the mechanical lock starting trying to move. I gently pushed it along into the unlocked position and it the light went off. I was able to successfully use the oven. Of course I'm not going to try using the self-clean cycle any time soon! Hope this helps someone else!

Rich - try unplugging oven for a while (see what worked for me, above). Does that work for your oven? Is it the same brand as mine?
