The element is probably burned out and shorted to ground. This will keep it on at all times. The other possible solution is the contactor The contacts may have fused. (Usually caused by a burnt out element)

I came across the same problem on a friend's stove/oven.
It turned out that the threaded plate, like a wide nut, had come loose inside the top space above the oven cavity.
Found the exploded schematic on the web, then we rocked the stove to confirm something was sliding around.
Rather than dismantling the entire stove to retrieve it, I used a 6mm stainless steel pop-rivet to re-attach the element bracket.
Power outage could have shorted out the control panel. Call the power company and put in a claim with your insurance company. Tis happened to me & I was able to reset the oven, even with a glowing bright & dim panel. Thought everything was ok but the upper oven doesn't stay on & the oven probe doesn't work, but it's too late for me to file a claim.
Check if plates work. Assuming it is a stove. If they don't then supply turned off or main fuse tripped/melted. If they work, and oven has upper and lower element, turn on each individually. If one works and the other does not, then the cold element is probably open circuit. If neither works, then the oven fuse tripped/melted. It can be that the oven switch is faulty, especially if the oven is old, but that would be the exception, not the norm. If this procedure does not help then you need a multimeter to do some measurements - not for the regular person. If it is just an oven on it's own, check supply or fuse. Further you would need to do some measurements with a meter!
I am assuming this is a gas stove. You probably need a new flint in the igniter. Simple problem. Check your local hardware store for flint, and refer to your manufacturer's manual for how to install it. If it's not there, a quick call to a service technician should answer the problem. hope this has been helpful.
According to the manual, the self cleaning latch could be stuck.
If the oven door is open, press STOP/CLEAR to clear display, then depress and hold switch plunger for 6 seconds (Located in the upper right corner of the oven front) and the oven door will unlock.
If the oven door is locked, press STOP/CLEAR to clear the display then apply pressure to the upper right corner of the oven door and the door will unlock. If the "F" code reappears, contact a Sears trained repair specialist.

Remove the bottom panel from inside the stove. Turn on the stove and see if the igniter glows bright red. If not glowing, replace the igniter. In some cases, even if the igniter is glowing, the resistance may not be low enough to turn on the gas valve. In either case the igniter has probably gone bad. ($50.00 to $90.00 for igniter)
