Unplug the range for 5 minutes and then plug it back in. That will sometimes clear that code if it was caused by a power surge or glitch through the electrical lines. If it returns, then you can use the information shown below to resolve this problem.

That F5 code indicates that you have a failed clock control board in the console of the range. You would need to replace that part to fix this problem. That part is expensive. It costs almost $400. The part number for that clock control is WB27M4. Here is a direct link for that part:

. Based on the cost of that part, you may consider replacing the entire range instead of replacing that clock control board.

If you want to proceed with the repair, you can order that part through the link that I provided above.

Unplug the range

to disconnect electrical power before accessing and replacing internal components. The image below shows how to open that console to access that clock control board for replacement. This information should help you complete the repair if you decide to go that route.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician complete this repair, you can schedule service through this link:
