The oven door lock mechanism is out of adjustment or broken.

Thanks for the info and the service manual.All of the ranges in the manual have motorized locks that open and close the latch.The range that I have has a manual door lock that you have to lock with a lever.My question is :When you try to use the oven,the control flashes "un-lock door" but the door is unlocked and you can move the lock lever back and forth but it still flashes "un-lock door"why would the control think the door is locked if you move the lever to the open position?Would the door lock assembly need to be changed,or do you think there might be a control board problem.I need some help in knowing what to check to find out what to order.Thank you.

The door lock assembly is most likely a simple micro-switch.  When the door is locked by moving the handle over, it engages a switch to tell the board to go on ahead into self clean.  To test it, use a meter and check to see if the switch is open or closed.  If the switch is closed while the door lock handle is not touching it, the board still thinks its locked.  If the switch tests good your clock assy. is bad.
