Control screen flashes F2 and F3; now oven element won't heat.
12 or 14 year old Kenmore electric range; self-cleaning; maybe this should just be replaced! F2/F3 code accompanied by constant and repeated beep means it has to be shut off at the breaker box. Replaced oven element; broiler was ok, though rarely used. I'm suspecting fairly shabby construction, this device has probably outlasted its planned obsolescence. Using the timer or timed bake control seems to go directly into F2/F3 and beeping.

I have a Kenmore wall oven model 911.41059591 that beeps and flashes F2 or F3 and shuts off. ... The "F2" and "F3" fault codes is most likely indicating an open oven ... Next, the control panel will need to be taken off in order to measure the ...

Looks like yours is a bad oven control. There is a # at the end of yourmodel # 0-5 that will determine which control it takes. Once you havethat # you can look it up at http://www3.sears.com/ Looks like the part costs about $165.
Back to the fifties! If the lower oven cooks normally, the heating element probably is OK. For self cleaning the normal temperature setting is bypassed and the heating element is set to a substantially higher level. Your oven may be unable to self clean because operation of the knob may not actually start the cycle. The thermostat could need replacing even though normal cooking is OK.
Sounds to me from the information you provided that the auto timer is set...when the auto timer gets set you are generally unable to use the oven. If the auto timer is not set then you are looking at a problem with the Electronic oven control..do any error codes show up f1 - f2 - f3 and so on?
That mean that the key pad is shorted,needs replaced
E0-F2 Shorted keypad Replace Electronic Range Control/Clock (ERC) Or E0-F2 Oven temp too high 1. Test operation of door lock on self-clean models 2. Test relay contact operation 3. High resistance in oven temperature sensor
Turn off the breaker and wait for 5 minutes. the follow this 3 steps: --> After turn the breaker back on, go to the range and press "OFF", "OFF", "START", then click on the "clock set", there is a message on the display saying that do you want to delete the error, at this time press on the "START" again. And wait for a while until the everything on the screen disappear except the clock time. Hope this will fix yours. It fixed mine.
