Question about GE Profile JB968 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

F2 Error My GE profile range has issues when I try to cook above 350 degrees.... it either beeps loudly and displays an F2 error.... or just quietly shuts off without a peep. Is it possible for an oven to "overheat"? We cut the power at the circuit breaker (as suggested in the manual) but it had no effect. can anyone help? Thanks! Traci

Re: F2 Error

Traci, F2 is the error code for a overtemp in the oven compartment. It could be two things. The oven temp. sensor or the main board itself. Start with the temperature sensor. It should ohm out at 1080 ohms at room temp. This of course is the least expensive and probably your problem. The temp sensor is the probe that is in the back wall of the oven. It will remove from the front with two screws. There will be a harness that you can disconnect it from when pulling it out. Some one can ohm it out there. The other possibility is welded relay contacts on the main board. Let's hope it's the sensor. Part number WB21T10007. back.
