If your drip pans are chrome plated NO you can not put them in the oven during the self clean cycle since the chrome plating will be burned off PLEASE BE ADVISED the racks also need to be removed during the self clean since the chrome will burn off of them as well...if your drip pans are porcelean coated they could go in durning self clean.
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
Try turning the power off at the breakers. There are two of them and they are usually dedicated to the oven. Wait 2-3 minutes and turn back on. If this doesn't clear it, suspect that the element has burned out.
The heating during the self-clean cycle is controlled by temperature sensors, likely even two, so that the door locks once a lower temp. is reached and the second to allow the temp. to rise to the point of catalysation.
The sensors are not absolute nor immune to failure so the desired temperature may not be reached before the sensor and circuitry thinks it's hot enough.
The only real way to check this is via a probe inserted into the oven to monitor the level it reaches.
While I have the needed gear, this is not something everyone has at home and even appliance repair people don't have a frequent need for it.
Since your range is new and under warranty, it might be worth a call to GE customer service to report it so it is at least on record and they may offer to have it checked.
I wouldn't wait too long; GE is trying to sell the appliance division and the next owner may not have to honor warranties.
