First look to see if the ignitor is coming on. Most common problem is the ignitor is weak or just bad. When the power is applied to the ignitor it glows and builds up resistance to open the gas valve then it lights. If the ignitor is weak or bad it will not build up enough resistance for gas to come into the burner. One sign of this would be a "woosh" sound when it trys to light. If the ignitor is coming on but not lighting it is most likely the ignitor is bad. Should have a full glow. Also, if the ignitor looks whiteish in color this is a sign of it going bad. You can compare to the broil ignitor to be sure. If the ignitor doesn't come on at all will need to see if you have power to the ignitor. Let me know what you find and let's solve it before you rate the solution.

Turn the breakers off and wait 10 minutes and then on. If this doesn't clear the problem, you'll need an electronic timer module. Electrical spikes cause problems like this.

The manual is located at the back of your oven. If your oven is against a wall, pull it back, not too far, and you will see a manual taped to the back of it. From there, it will provide you with answers some employers won't know. If it's not there, sorry, you're outta luck!

My oven will not stay on, when started to preheat it will come on for a few seconds and they it will make a beeping noise and the codes E0 F2 will appear. The codes stay on even if the oven is off.

Put a torch on the probe. If the flame comes on them the thermocouple is weak.If nothing at all replace the safety valve.That is if you have a standing pilot. If you pilot is an electric one then it should be so bright it is hard to look at but if it is dim orange it is weak.
