I see that you are having trouble with setting the temperature of your oven on your range, model# FGB24S5A, after a power failure. I also see that you have reset your appliance by unplugging it and are receiving an error message of SAG or 5AB. I have looked into the model number that you have listed and it shows as a wall oven. I also do not show either of those error codes you have shown. If you can please get me the model number off your range, so I can better assist. The model number will either be right inside the oven on the back of the door or it may be located inside the bottom drawer. Looking forward to hearing from you.
Some ranges with a lot of features have a Sabbath mode, hence the letters Sab in the display although it looks like 5ab. Check your owners manual and it should tell you how to turn off the Sabbath mode. If you don't have a manual Google your model number and Sabbath mode.
Your oven is in celcius mode to change press bake and broil at the same time SF will appear then press broil and cooking time at the same time a C will appear press again to toggle to farenheight then press start to lock it in that mode. Some models when you press the bake and broil the sf will appear if it does press the press the broil button to toggle between C & F then press start. www.appliancehelponline.com
The PF on your control indicates a power failure and should be removed by pressing the cancel button. The 5ab code indicates the range is in the SABBATH mode.
If a power failure occurs when the SABBATH mode is set, the oven will return to the OFF mode and will turn the power OFF to the oven.
To ENABLE SABBATH mode:
* Open the oven door * Press STOP/CLEAR * Press both the HOUR "UP" and "DOWN" arrow pad at the same time - and hold for 5 seconds. SAB ON will disappear from the display.
To disable SABBATH mode: Repeat the steps above and SAB OFF will appear.
To set the SABBATH mode for use during the SABBATH/Holidays: * Press BAKE * Pres TEMP "UP" and "DOWN" Arrow pad to enter a different temperature other than 350 degrees. (Between 170F and 500F) * Press COOK TIME * Press HOUR/MIN "up" or "down" arrow to set cook time * Press DELAY START to set a delayed cook time (optional) * Press and hold TIMER OFF for 5 seconds SAB will appear on the display indicating it is ready. * Press START * To STOP cooking - press STOP/CLEAR * To exit the SABBATH mode and return to normal operation - press and hold TIMER OFF for 5 seconds.

I finally found my manual to the range, and to change from celsius to fahrenheit press the BROIL button for 5 seconds. A tone will sound, and the temperature should switch to Fahrenheit.
As far as the code PF 5ab--it could be PF Sab which means the power went out during Sabbath mode. Try pressing and holding TIMER OFF for 5 seconds. If that doesn't work, then open the oven door, press STOP/CLEAR, press both the HOUR "up" and "down" arrow pad at the same time and hold for 5 seconds, "Sab OFF" should appear. Press START to accept the change, then close the oven door.
