no model number, the sticker is badly worn off. the oven door lock keeps locking and unlocking. As it does this the oven lock is light up on the display, i replaced the door lock about two months ago for the same exact problem so I'm sure this one is out again. My question is why does this keep happening?

Or a door switch interlock?

Well that didn't make sense. The cam on these normally has 2 microswitches, one of which tells it to stop turning...

Any idea how old it is? Is this a wall oven? Can you get a picture of the oven?  

I had a wall oven doing this due to a bad connection on the molex plug on the back of the oven. I thought it was a bad control since all the switches were working, and the switches didn't stop the lock motor, it just told the control to stop the motor. I was sure it had a bad control so I replaced that and found it didn't fix the  problem. After looking in to it more and spending some time on the GE tech line we found a terminal on a molex plug that pulled out of the plug.
