F05 has to do with the self cleaning mechanism. I know it goes with out saying, but sparks and smoke are a bad thing. i would strongly suggest turning off the breaker and calling in a service person.
Smoke means extreme heat or FIRE is melting something..
Please be safe and have it fixed..

The tag with the model number is usually located on the rail that is visible with the lower drawer open.
The code you are getting is an indication that the oven got too hot or the control thinks the oven got too hot. It is usually do to one of two parts that have failed.
If the oven did not get too hot and you got the failure code, then the sensor would be bad.
If the oven did get too hot then the ERC (electronic range control) is bad.

Just asking if your model number is correct. I do not find 970 models but do find 790 models. If it is a 790 model there can be aproblem with the door lock on the oven door. You may want to check to see if all the shipping materials have been removed from the door lock / latching area. I would recommend that you review the installation instructions in the owners manual, paying particular attention to the removal of shipping materials.
Adittionally if the problem presists it says to replace the Electronic Range Control (ERC) This is not a cheap part! Good thing it will be at their expense including the repair service call..
Hopefully you have already called for warranty service? We both know a brand new oven should not be producing any error codes. If you have not called for warranty service you do so now. Make sure to tell them that you already have talked to customer support and that unplugging the unit for ANY period of time made no difference in the error code.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.
