Oven won't stop heating; controls don't work; F2 code

GE self clean oven. I self cleaned for the first time in 10 years. Did fine. Two weeks later, after a lot of baking, oven heated up and would not turn off; both elements going full blast. F2 code appeared with a continuous beep. Broke circuit, let cool, turned on circuit breaker, fine for 5 minutes, then did the same thing again. No controls (including "clear") will turn the elements off. Arrgghh! Wonder if self cleaning brought this on, since I've never had a problem. Thanks I have the same problem with my 2 year old GE range/oven. It has worked fine for months and then I ran the self clean mode right before all the wife's holiday baking started. Now the oven doesn't get as hot as it says after cheking with an external thermostat, can't get over 350 degrees even though I set it for 425, and most days it now flashes F2 error code and beeps until I shut if off. I never had any issues until after running the self clean for the very first time. Any help appreciated.

    Broiler will not work, but hear relay click and light is on. We can live with that, but while baking for 20 min at 375 degrees, beeping and flashing F2 with broiler now going full blast. Selected off, but broiler still going. Cycled circuit breaker to get broiler off. Oven is electric GE true temp about 11 years old.

I am not an expert, but this has happened to me. Examine your circuit breaker and see that it provides the amps that your oven requires. If it just barely provides it, then it could be that your circuit breaker is tripping if you have anything else on that line and it is being used. Especially hair dryers. If your circuit breaker is not tripping, you should contact GE or repair service because you may have a "power module" problem. Good luck.

SOURCE: Electric Oven not getting hot enough

Sir, I think the top oelement is for broiling ONLY. It should not turn on when baking. The clicking may be the oven heating up.
How far apart were the oven temp instrument and the digital?
Don't expect them to match...they are inaccurate.

1. Heat water until it boils. Place digital therm in boiling water until it comes up to 212deg. If it is not at 212 in boiling water, record the error.(this gives a rough calibration to the digital)
2 Turn on oven, set to 350 deg, place digital therm on rack. Wait until oven reaches 350 (on stove) and read the digital. Note the difference between the two

SOURCE: GE Profile Gas Range oven turns off

I just read that the electronic panel malfunctions due to rear burner use. Now, I know that mine gets REALLY HOT in between the back burners (where the heat exhaust for the oven is) whenever I bake/broil. I am guessing that it can cause the same malfunction fromt he oven, as with the backburners. Whenever I use both back burners, mine shows F7 E6, too. Unplugging it for the night or just waiting til the beeping stops and then clearing it works... until I cook again. I read that the replacement part for the control panel is about $300 and another $200, more or less, to install it! I think this is more like a recall or manufacturer's problem. I have read plenty of complaints and I think GE needs to make a call to fix them!!

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

You are on right track, as you have already checked the sensor which has around 1100ohms so the problem is with the electronic control board that is bad and needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

GE true temp oven f2


This happens every time I clean my oven. It overheats, shows the f2 light and BEEPS loudly. The only way to stop it is to turn the oven off at the breaker box, wait until it cools (usually 2-3 hours), flip the breaker back on and start the process all over again until the unit is clean. If it's not to dirty, sometimes it's easier to juat use Easy Off.
hope it helped

When trying to pre-heat my oven, It won't until serveral attempts later (maybe 10 ). Then, after baking and stopping the oven, I get an F1 error! What's going on?


Hi,

F1 is listed as "Element Relay circuit Failure".

There will be a current switching relay to the oven - which is faulty - hence why you get the error when it realises it's not working.

This should be replaced to solve future problems.

For your reference, the fault codes are -
F0 Touch pad stuck in depressed position
F1 Element relay circuit failure
F2 Oven temp exceeded the clean runaway temp (self clean) -or- runaway temp (cooking modes)
F3 Short circu!t in oven temp sensor
F4 Open circuit in oven temp sensor
F5 - N/A
F6 Failure in the EEPROM check comparison (only time of day and timer will operate)
F7 Failure of Sef-C1ean auto door latch circuit.
F8 Failure of the door latch motor. Occurs when the motor runs for two minutes without the door locking Self-Clean mode.

If this resolves the issue, Please rate accordingly. Thank you.

Frigidaire electric stove keeps beeping


IF IT HAS A MECHANICAL CLOCK, THE START AND STOP TIMES NEED TO BE SET, THE OVEN CONTROL SET TO CLEAN, AND THE SELECTOR SWITCH SET TO CLEAN.
TO CLEAN NOW SET START TIME TO THE TIME ON THE CLOCK AND THE STOP TIME TO 3 HOURS LATER.
LOCK THE DOOR. IT SHOULD START AND THE CLEAN LIGHT SHOULD ILLUMINATE, OR OVEN ON LAMP SHOULD LIGHT.
IF IT STILL DOESN'T WORK, THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE CLOCK OR THE CONTROLS OR THE LOCK ASSEMBLY.
A WIRING DIAGRAM WOULD BE BEST FOR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM.
