F2 typically means an overtemperature condition. The cause could be welded relay contacts,a stalled or blocked cooling fan, blocked air flow to the rear of the unit or high resistance in the oven sensor leads or connectors. Check to see if there is any accumulation of dust bunnies in the fan. Do you remember if the fan has been running? There could also be a bad thermal switch. This tells the fan when to turn on and off. Unless you have some technical expertise, you may not feel comfortable checking on some of these causes. Be sure and turn off the power before poking around the wires and connectors in the top of the oven. There is usually a sheet of trouble shooting instructions in the top section of your oven which will give you some assistance. Good Luck.

F3e2 error


Oven keeps beeping:
As there is no reprogramming of most control boards try this, disconnect the power and wait 30 seconds and then reconnecting the power.

If it's an "F1" fault code this generally implies an electronic oven control (EOC) failure. Disconnect the power, wait 30 seconds or longer and then reapply power. If "F1" returns upon power-up, replace the electronic oven control.
The oven control can be accessed and replaced from the rear of the control panel.

NOTE:Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the panel from behind the console.
If its an F2 ERROR CODE, The F2 error indicates an open circuit in the oven temperature probe.

Your range has a resettable thermostat in series with the oven temperature probe. If this thermostat opens the clock will display F2 and the oven won't heat.
You can reset the thermostat by pushing in the reset button on top of the thermostat.
Some ovens have an alarm that will beep continuously every six seconds to alert you that the oven is still on. Usually, a kitchen timer that you have set will cause the beeping, but occasionally it can be an error with the oven's settings. If it is the kitchen timer, you can simply push the "Kitchen Timer On/Off" button to end the continuous beeping. If that does not stop the beeping, it is probably beeping due to an error. You can turn the continuous beeping off but you may still need to troubleshoot the issue that is causing the beeping noise.

Oven is showing f2 what is happening


Hi Nancy:
Error Code F2 indicates a loose or broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is bad and should be replaced.

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.

Hope this helps; thank you for using Fixya. Keep in mind that your feedback is important, leave us some testimonial comment.

Fault codes F1 and F2


Just two work there:
1.- Replace the touchpad or the clock (ERC) if the code "F1" is displayed. Disconnect the ribbon connector to the touchpad. If no code is displayed after an hour, replace the touchpad. If the code displays again, replace the clock.
2.- Replace the oven temperature sensor if "F2," "F3" or "F4" is displayed. "F2" indicates the oven temperature is too hot and the oven temperature sensor is suspect. "F3" or "F4" indicates the oven temperature sensor or shorted or open.

Parts replacement coudl look in www.repairclinic.com

Hope helps.

Turn oven on to bake when it reaches temp oven cuts off and f2 sh


This indicates the oven has reached an over temperature. You will first need to check the temperature probe for the proper reading. Refer to the tech sheet located somewhere on your stove. It should be around 1100 ohms. If this checks out good the ERC electronic range control will need to be replaced. Here is a couple links that should help

Oven was put on clean mode after about 1hour 30 min started peeping and display shows f-9


Hello-  The code indicated- F9 - indicates a fault in the door lock circuit. The usual part that fails is a little switch by the latch. The full-power extended cycle burned out the contacts. The part is available, but fairly difficult to replace, so consider service. If this is the only problem you have after 'self-cleaning', consider yourself lucky. This cycle is called 'self-destruct' by most techs.      Please acknowledge this post if the info is helpful- have more if needed.  Thanks- Ed

Electric Diagram for Kenmore Model 790


Has the oven run out of control or gotten too hot? The 790 series is made by Frigidaire and those fault codes are F0 to F8. F2 indicates the temperature sensor is reading too hot. Now with the double oven models, some manufactures add an extra digit to the fault codes to indicate which oven created the fault.

Your most likely fix is to replace the temperature sensor. The most probable locations for the wiring diagram is taped inside the bottom drawer, on the back or under side of the oven, or behind one of the panels on the back of the oven. This might tell you the room temperature resistance for the temperature sensor so you can test it with an ohmmeter and be sure that it is faulty. Try Appliance Parts Pros for replacement sensors.

Oven showing F2 fault


tire, if your model starts with 911. the code stands for an overtemperature condition. I would start with the temp sensor, this is the probe inside the oven cavity, part # 334300. You can ohm it out, should be around 1100 ohms at room temp. This is for model number starting with 911. Catriver..post back.
