The F2 error code means that the oven over heated by at least 100 degrees and the oven temp.sensor needs to be replaced.
On the self clean cycle the oven temp can easily reach over 600 dergees and therefore the sensor thinks it got too hot. If you have not already done so the F2 can be cleared by pushing the CLEAR/OFF button on the control...if the F2 error code reappears the sensor has became defective and it would need to be replaced.
It will help to know what f2 & f3 stand for. These are fault codes and there usually is a tech sheet taped to the back of the oven, or inside the control compartment of the oven. If you open thecontrol area, you can look at the sheet and know what failed by the list of fault codes. Unfortunetly, it could be the control board again (these are very fickle electronics), or it could be the oven lock mechanism,or the overheat sensor that keeps telling the fan and other components to stay in their operating mode. it is like the domino effect: one item goes flukey and the rest fall prey to the results. Good luck, Macgivor
F2 during the cleaning cycle will occur when the oven control senses an oventemperature above 915F-930F
If actual over temperature condition occurred: Look for welded relay contacts. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).
If no over temperature condition occurred: Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective. Check door lock switches.
Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit , not actual oven temperature.
**((The fans will continue to run if the control has been damaged, due to the high heat))
the sensor in your oven is picking up the high heat and posting error message which displays F2 ,at least the sensor is working but lets look at the problem isuspect one of two the first is your control switch needs tested i would say this is the problem and number two the elemant could be on its way out either of these problems are going to need a electrican to fix ,sorry i cant give you a simple answer to your problem.adrian
-F2- Alarm Heating Mode High Temperature
Is activated when the ERC senses a runaway heat condition or when the temperature exceeds
“runaway limits”. The ERC will beep until the cancel or another function is selected. If the alarm
repeats the F2 alarm check the oven sensor and wiring after fi rst checking for a stuck relay. If alarm
goes away verify the oven will complete a clean cycle without any type of failure.
Another words the problem with oven sensor or relay board.
I have the the same problem as discribed above. Does you oven fan go on for a long time after you use your oven during regular baking. Mine seems to stay on for 45 minutes after I bake anything. Can this be all tied together with the f2 problem? I am wondering if it is not just a fan circulation problem?
The F2 typically means an overtemperature conditions:
1. over 650 degrees F unlatched or 915 degrees F latched.
2. cooling fan stalled while over above 650 degrees F or an oper thermal switch in the yellow leads.
1.Welded relay contacts
2.Cooling fan stalled or blocked air flow to rear of unit.
3.High resitance in over sensor leads/connectors, especially at sensor in rear.
Similar problem. When baking over 400 degrees we get the F2 code that can only be reset by cycling the power at the breaker. Replaced the electonics to no avail. I'm thinking its the cooling fan located between the oven and microwave (upper unit) it never comes on which may cause a separate temp switch to generate the F2... but I'm not a pro. :)
