The cheapest would be to go buy an oven thermometer. A couple of dollars. Set oven at 350. Put thermometer on the oven rack. Put in a cake pan, etc with water in it. Let be 15-30 minutes. Then read the thermometer. You can tell by how much it is off.
Really, what might have to be replaced is the thermostat. That constantly trying to kick in would be the ticking noise.
There is a couple of things that could cause this. This oven has a cooling fan that is supposed to keep the electronics from overheating. There is a thermo cut-off that is supposed to shut it down if this happens. If it worked like it should, all you have to do is replace the thermo cut-off and possibly the fan. If it didn't the control board will also have to be replaced.
Try resetting by turning off breaker for a couple minutes then turn back on. If this does not do it you will need to acess you door latch switch. This is acess by removing the top panel. Check for continuity with latch open you should have none and you should have continuity with latch closed.

The F3 E2 error code indicates that the electronic oven control board in the range senses an over-temperature condition in the oven.
This can be caused by a failed temperature sensor probe, a wiring problem between the sensor and the control board, or a failed electronic oven control board. If the oven is apparently not overheating when this error code appears, then your likely failure is the temperature sensor probe. If the oven is overheating, then you likely have a failed electronic oven control board due to a stuck relay not cycling the oven heating element off properly.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing. I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information. RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell. In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
