My wife accidentally touched the "Self Clean" pad instead of "Bake". It auto locked the oven door and proceeded to heat up (gas). When she realized her mistake she panicked and somehow forced the oven door open instead of touching the "Off/Clear" pad.
The problem now is that the door latch is in the locked position, the oven door is open, and there is an orange warning display stating the obvious "locked Door".
Is there a way to restore the appliance to its normal operating mode?

It is a General Electric Profile XL44 Self-Cleaning Gas Range. Thank you. That would be important to know.

Problem was solved by a GE repairman for $80.00. Super simple. I wish I had thought of it. Recall, the door was open and the latch was in the locked position causing a blinking orange message on the display. The Solution:
There is a black spring loaded button on the upper left side of the oven door opening. I never noticed it against the black background. The technician merely held the button in for a minute or so until the orange message disappeared and voila, the latch moved to the unlock position. A lesson learned the hard way but at least now the oven works

Thank you so much for this tip! It totally worked for us and saved us a repairman call.
