No we can't unlock the oven. Don't have manuals.
Appliance Technician: Bryan, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago

E2-F3 mean the oven overheated,

E2-F39Bake range over temperatureAt room temperature, sensor resistance should be 1K to 1.1K. If not, replace the sensor. If the sensor checks okay, replace the control.

you will need to replace the oven temperature sensor if the sensor fails test above, do the test above to see if it the sensor or the clock, you will need to get the oven open to do this though, the only thing you can try for that is to get a coat hanger and make a hook and try to pull the latch over, if you cant get it you need a tech. thanks Bryan
