Power Failure in gas range during use

I have a Whirlpool Gold Accubake gas range (Model GS440LEMQ, serial # RR1511795) that is about 3.5 years old. I have been getting a PF code in the middle of baking (it happens at any temperature, not just high heat). It only happens occasionally, but has been happening more frequently as of late. If I don't stand right there, I have no idea when it happens. I can turn the oven on right away again, but depending on the last time I checked on it, I may have to preheat it all over again. It doesn't pop a circuit or anything, it just shuts itself off. I called in a repair guy from our gas company (we have their service plan), and he had never heard of this problem. He didn't even open his toolbox to investigate. He said he would call his parts guy and see if he has heard of anything like this and left within minutes of getting to my house.

What is the problem and how do I get it fixed? Thank you in advance!

    I have a whirlpool Gold Accubake System oven that was in the house when we purchased it last year. Looks rather new, but not sure how old it is. It shuts off in the middle of baking, and we have to unplug it, and plug it right back in for it to work again.

    Same issue though, no idea when it shuts off unless we are standing in the kitchen to see it.

Sounds like a power issue for sure, check your outlet that its plug into(run an extension from another outlet to be sure), perhaps a loose wire on control board behind unit. PF is inicator that power failure has occured. check your manual oerhaps a 5 year warr on electronics(might be a short in clock itself)

Whirlpool Gold Accubake Duo. ''E4 - F3'' or ''E0 - F3''

HI. These codes are an indication of oven temperature sensor failure. The sensor is damaged. This will not allow for proper operations. The affected part must be replaced, asap.

The sensor is, generally, located inside the oven, mounted on the back wall, on the top right, or left corner.It will look like a 4 inch long slender probe. There will be two screws holding the housing on the back of the oven wall. Once the screws are removed, the sensor will need to be extracted from the back side of the unit.
