It sounds like you have some condensation in your gas lines.
The fact that it only does this when preheating kind of reinforces that suspicion.

By the time the oven has reached temperature setting, the bit of moisture has been either blown or baked out of the system.

Steam clouding the window would confirm this or if don't have one, you clould put a shiny pot into the oven and check it for condensation after a few minutes while the popping is taking place.

Sounds like you overloaded a capacitor on the clock assembly. Before you replace the clock, you should check the voltage to your stove to be sure it's a steady 110 to 125 volts. But yes, it sounds like your combo clock brain got zapped.

Oven beeping f1 and f3


Here are the error codes for your range:

F1 Circuit board defective Replace control board F2 1. The oven temp has risen above 665F and the door is not locked or
2. The temp has risen above 965F with the door locked 1. Check oven temp in mode that failure occurred. Replace EOC (Electronic Oven Control) if above limits
2. Check 8-pin connector. Check and replace oven temperature sensor if necessary F3 Oven temperature sensor is open (above 3000 ohms) Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for open wiring between oven temperature sensor and control F4 Oven temperature sensor is shorted (below 500 ohms) Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for shorted wiring between oven temperature sensor and control F5 Internal watchdog circuit has detected a failure Defective EOC (Electronic Oven Control) F6 Shorted buttons Check push buttons and dome switches on control F8 Logic interrupted (lock motor switch sequence) Check door lock switches and wiring

Most likely problem is the oven temp. sensor. Should check around 1100 ohms at room temp. I would replace that first because it is the easiest and cheaper than an oven control.
