Re: my lower oven does not work; top oven works fine
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
Thereshould also be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind thecontrol panel or hidden inside behind the back cover, etc., and it's very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

I assume your oven is electric and not gas? If so, consider replacing the fuses on the oven, which are located in the back. THese fuses are pretty cheap, just ask around at the hardware store. This should fix your problem.
#1 You may have a blown fuse which sets all these issues together
#2 Your sparker may need to be tested, try a voltmeter to it and see what it reads. If voltmeter reads voltage, then it's a simple adjustment of distance to contact. If no voltage, then you'll need to replace sparker.
#3 as far as your indicators, that has to be an internal fuse.
I agree with you for not replacing these appliances, I love to cook with gas
I would almost guarantee the thermocouple is bad.It is a small rod whose wires come out from the back wall into the oven and is mounted inside the oven,usually near the top.This is a common fail component in ovens due to the temperatures it endures over time,especially with self-cleaning because they usually go over the maximum temperature cooking allowed during cleaning.If you want to test it yourself,you or someone can swap out the 2 thermocouples as they should be identical..Make sure the circuit braker is pulled first.Behind the oven there is probably a cover which is fairly easy to access.If it is possible to switch the 2 connectors without removing the thermocouples,it would obviously be much quicker.If you switch them and turn both ovens on,the problem should switch ovens also.If you switch the thermocouples and the problem DOES NOT switch ovens,the bottom doesn't work but top still does,the circuit board is bad.Wait about a half hour before touching the thermocouple after heatup and leave the door open.Good luck,Greg
My problem is with a roper double wall oven not a micowave. When turning the top oven on I receive a F-5 signal and the oven does not turn on. I misplaced my manual hoping you can solve this problem or send me the manual.
The door latch receiver has a spring action lever (inside) that is made out of plastic and cracks or wears through. You need to remove the cover and remove the two screws holding the door latch receiver. Now you can switch the top and bottom piviot switchs, putting the top one lower and the lower one on top..make sense? you"ll understand when you see it.
