F5 error on a Kenmore Gas Oven

My Kenmore 24" gas built-in oven shows aa F5 warning when it reaches the set temperature. I can turn it off and let it cool for a while, but when I start it again it does the same thing when it hits the set temp. The unit is old and I really don't want to pay for a costly service and repair charge. Is this something that I can repair on my own and is it expensive to buy the part? Thanks, John

    Thanks for the reply repmanthe.
    I don't know way the door would need to lock if I am only heating it to 350 degrees, though.
    I am experiencing the problem under normal baking, and not during self cleaning.
    I will look to see if I can see any visible problem with the locking mechanism.
    Thanks again,

We have a 24 inch propane gas oven by kenmore. All of a sudden the oven is not turning on when you press the start and bake or broil buttons. It seems it is not getting the gas to ignite or the signal to let the gas in. Code is F5. Model number is 91130168.
Please help as it is just too costly to call service people to a small town from the city.
Thank you!

When cooking will get an occasional f2 or f5 error code

HI, This seems to be another ERC issue. the temperature sensory circuit is malfunctioning. the oven will not operate while this condition exist within the ERC. This malfunction will allow your oven to over heat and may cause a fire. The second issue will be that the relay drive circuit is malfunctioning as well. If you cant cancel the error code and continue with normal usage, you will have to replace the ERC once more.

Please rate and god bless:)
