So when the oven states "feature not available" it means that the oven thinks the unit is in self clean mode. This is a glitch in the software and commonly occurs on Whirlpool made ovens. Try to flip the circuit breaker off to the oven or unplug the unit for 5 minutes to see if the electronics will reset. If it doesn't reset then the display board just needs to be ordered and replaced to resolve the issue. Below is a link to the part you'd need to order for your link.
