The oven burner probably is rusted out, and the gas doesn't come out close enough to the pilot to light right away, so.....boom. Burners are not expensive, and may even be easy to remove. Be patient, and use a flashlight to look for mounting screws.

SOURCE: kenmore ultra bake wont turn off oven. need to

Jiggle all your keypads several times each.
Sometimes it is from a stuck key pad.
If that does not work you will have to replace the electronic oven control.

Without a device to measure the pressure from the orifice you will have to adjust for the best flame on the burners (blue with no yellow) not going beyond the spreader plate.

SOURCE: oven turns itself off


The F4 code is a 'temperature sensor shorted' code. The temperature sensor, is a small metal rod coming into the oven on the back wall, it is a little smaller than a pencil.

Its almost impossible to tell you how to repair it without being there to view what is going on. by what you are saying, it looks like you have a short between two or more wires, possibly stuck together from heat. After switching off, remove cover at the back and follow the wiring to the clock and the burner switches and look for anything obvious. Look for a wire possibly burned off and leaning onto another electrical wire.
