Oven failed to work; F5 error message

We used this oven, which came with the house we just bought, once with no problem. But the second time, while heating up, it started beeping and flashing the F5 error message. I tried to clear it and reset the temperature, but the only thing that happened was that smoke seeped out from the top edge of the control panel--an acrid, burnt-plastic smell. We turned the power to the oven off and on a few times but the error message and beeping continued so we cannot now use the oven and must light the burners manually. The manual says F5 means "failed circuit in control". Does this mean the control panel burned out? Should we just replace this four-and-a-half-year old oven/stove? Thanks for any advice.

    Wife reported that she got "F5" error code, and the upper oven no longer heats. The lower oven works fine. I tried to turn-on the upper oven, set temperature to 350, the display shows "pre-heat" and current temp "100", but does not heat. What do these symptoms suggest as a problem, what part needs to be replaced?

After a power outage my oven is unable to work


The E1- F5 error is a door lock error.

The control (TIMER) has likely failed in this instance - BUT...

Sometimes when you disconnect power to a range and reconnect it the electronic range control gets confused.
You should disconnect power again for 15 seconds and reconnect and see if that helps.

If it doesn't cure the E1- F5 error hold the bake button in until E0- F2 appears in the display.
This is the error for a stuck button on the keypad and is the way to clear the memory of the electronic range control.

Sometimes these work, but if the control has failed it won't make any difference.
