When I try to turn on "BAKE" the control panel shows "LOCK" is on. Would this possibly be the sensor/lock gone bad or maybe even the door latch switch?? The control panel seems to function just fine so maybe I can narrow it down to one of the two above. Does someone know with more certainty than I???

This means that the Control Panel is locked. This feature is useful when you are cleaning the range/oven's top and control panel. It also keeps small children from doing any damage pressing buttons on the unit when unsupervised.
Unlocking the control panel often depends on the make/model. Some ovens have a control lock key. With the cooktop and oven off (use the Cancel/off button if needed), press and hold the control lock key for 3+ seconds until you hear the beep. This toggles the control panel lock. If you continue to press the button, it will go switch states again. (On a ~10 year old GE Profile range, the button is labeled Lock Controls. This is to the right of the display on the lowest line of keys.)
Some ovens may toggle the control lock by pressing and holding Start for 5+ seconds. Often, the control lock button or keypad combination will be indicated by a note in a much smaller font on the control panel. If two buttons need to be pressed simultaneously, there will be a line between them with a symbol in that line.
Please add a comment with the make and model of your range for more information.
F2 - Oven Temperature Is Too High - Check for welded contacts on bake and broil relays. If present, replace control board (clock). For SELF CLEAN models, check door lock operation. Check sensor, sensor harness, and the sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Also check for any causes of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Remember: The oven control board (clock) measures resistance of sensor circuit, not actual oven temperature.
Here is that part. Oven Control Assembly black
I don't believe that it is available any longer.
Let's try resetting your range by either unplugging it or
flipping the household circuit breaker off. It is important to wait
approximately ten minutes and then turn the unit on. Is the unit still advising that the door is locked? An experienced
service technician may need to further evaluate this issue if it was not
resolved with the power reset. In this case, your unit may possibly be
experiencing a communication problem with the EOC (Electronic Oven Control) and
door latch assembly, or a potential wiring failure.
Good Afternoon Gwen - Try reprogramming the range by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn the unit back on. If issue persists, then the unit could possibly be experiencing an issue with a wiring failure, EOC (electronic oven control), sensor probe and/or faulty bake or broil element. I would strongly recommend consulting a professional to narrow down the precise issue before investing in parts that may or may not be the root cause.
Hello meathead4094 - Often when the LOCK light is flashing, it is because there is door malfunction. Try reprogramming the range by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn the unit back on. Typically, this will clear the flashing. If issue persists, the range could possibly have a faulty door latch, light switch or EOC (electronic oven control). I would strongly recommend contacting a professional to get the appropriate diagnosis prior to make any unnecessary part replacements.
This means a
loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is
bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue test the oven temp. sensor, it
should read between 1080-1120 ohms, if the rating is more then that and the
door appears to be closing fine then it is the control board that is bad and
should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.
Hi Thanks for using FixYa. Error F1-1 in your Amana means
that the temperature while cooking exceeded. To resolve this issue you’ll have to check the oven temp. sensor circuit if the reading is more then 1100ohms then it should be replaced however, if the rating is fine then it is the Electronic Range Control (ERC) that has gone bad & should be replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
Some one may have pressed the child lock button(looks like a padlock pic) It locks out functions. Push and hold the child lock button for 3 or more seconds. If thats not it try running the clean cycle and then cancle it after a min. If door locks and un locks should be ok.
SOME RANGES ARE DESIGNED TO LOCK IF THE CONTROL SENSES A TEMPERATURE EXTREME. IF THERE IS A FAILURE OF THE SENSOR THAT MAKES THE CONTROL THINK THE TEMP IS UP, IT WILL LOCK THE DOOR TO PREVENT INJURY. REMOVE THE BACK PANEL AND FIND THE OVEN SENSOR LEADS COMING OUT THE BACK OF THE OVEN. DISCONNECT THE SENSOR AND CHECK THE RESISTANCE. AT ROOM TEMP IT SHOULD BE SOMEWHERE AROUND 1084 OHMS. IF IT IS NOT CLOSE,
THE SENSOR IS BAD. PLUG IN A NEW SENSOR AT THAT CONNECTOR AND THE DOOR SHOULD UNLOCK. THEN GET INSIDE THE OVEN, REMOVE THE OLD SENSOR, AND REPLACE IT WITH THE ONE PLUGGED IN.
Need to check and see if you are getting 220 volts to the element or if the element is showing resistance with an ohm meter. Any resistance means it is ok. If you are not getting voltage to the elements and resistance is ok then the control board is bad. Note: Always check outlet for proper voltage first! Never know when a breaker has gone bad. Should have 220 volts from line 1 to line 2 and 110 volts from line 1 or line 2 to ground.
