I had the same problem and followed the process listed above....yes, I
did unplug/turn off the circuit and am alive to share this update!
Right off I noticed that the ribbon cable was loose. For those who have
tinkered around with other electronics such as a PC, etc., note that
this ribbon cable is not secured by the connector (atleast in my case).
Reseated the cable and turned the power on. Voila- the bake option
works. Tested it by turning it on for 20-30 seconds. Touched the bake
element and got proof that it was working fine (via a singe of the ring
About three minutes or so later, the display started to beep with an error code - E0 F2. A shorted keypad is what it stands for. The clock was still operable. I could still select the bake option, broil option, etc. Ran a test bake cycle but it turned off after a minute or so and started to display the E0 F2 code again.
Started the process all over ie turn power off, take panel off, reseat ribbon cable. Turn power on and test by holding the Cancel button for five seconds. Still displays the E0 F2 error. Waited for 10 minutes but this time no more beeping or error display. Ran a preheat cycle for 4+ minutes without any problems. The oven warms up and the bake element glows red. Hopefully, all is well. Will see what it does when we bake something the next time.
Thanks to PropHeadTwo and others for their contributions.

F5 fault codes are latch mechanism problems. One means the latch won't lock, the other means the latch won't unlock. Odd you're getting both...

The F3 E2 error code indicates that the electronic oven control board in the range senses an over-temperature condition in the oven.
This can be caused by a failed temperature sensor probe, a wiring problem between the sensor and the control board, or a failed electronic oven control board.
If the oven is apparently not overheating when this error code appears, then your likely failure is the temperature sensor probe.
If the oven is overheating, then you likely have a failed electronic oven control board due to a stuck relay not cycling the oven heating element off properly.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question!^!^!
