@camartin F0 in general is the error code for a failed thermistor control. Not exactly knowing which model your Range is try a reset which may be for a different model. This should clear the error codes:

Power off the unit, wait 5 minutes then restore the power.

Press the broil and bake keys simultaneously and "SF" will be displayed.

Press "Hr. Down" and "Minute Down" keys simultaneously for 3 seconds, then the time of day will be displayed.

Press "Temp Up" and "Minute Up." The control panel will display the following:

Go blank briefly

Display all segments briefly

Display "LOC REF" briefly

Display all segments again for 30 seconds

Display "LOC REF"

Acknowledge the "LOC REF" by pressing the "Hour Down" and "Minute Up."

Test control pads. Oven should now function.

from here. this could be as bad as a failed circuit board to as simple as a corroded plug at the oven sensors.
