Sounds like something is stuck in your control board...have you tried cutting the power to the range for a few minutes and then see what happens when power is restored? If it keeps doing this would suspect something is hanging in the range control...

I did try unplugging and replugging it in however, it just goes right back to the flashing "lock" (not light) button and continuous locking and unlocking. Do I need to get into the locking mechanism to fix this or replace something like a control panel?

Have you found the model number so we can see who made this for Sears and possibly find some information??  You will need to see what is feeding voltage to the lock assy when it is doing this, if it goes back to the control panel and these wires un-plugged and this behavior stops, would tell you where the problem might be.  You could have switches shorted in the lock assy but no one has any idea what sort of lock assy this has without the model number....:?

I solved the problem by starting the self cleaning cycle and then cancelling it. It flashed the same error code but then unlocked and cleared the display. I recommend that anyone else with a locked oven door try the same before attempting to manually unlock it or replacing a control.

Thanks again for your input.
