Alright so error F13 is a bad error, here is what the error means.

F13 = Bad EEPROM Identification/Checksum error.

In other words, the logic in your display board is corrupted. Turn the power off at the circuit breaker or unplug the oven for 60 seconds. If the error code returns when you turn the power back onto the unit, then you have a bad display control board and you will need to replace it.
