    The lock light, I assume that's the door handle switch. It sounds like the switch is not actuating. I once had this happen on the self cleaning handle on my oven, the handle was actually bent, I had to dissasemble it and bend it back.

    Its either the switch itself is bad, or something is bent or fallen out of adjustment in the door.
