SOURCE: F3 and F2 Error Codes
If hitting clear/cancel won't clear it try unplugging and then plug it back in. My guess is the oven control is bad. Here are the fault codes for this model.
Code Condition Check/Repair F0 or F1 Failed transistor in control If code cannot be cancelled, replace the Electronic Range Control (ERC) or touch pad F2 Oven over temp - exceeded 590F with door in unlocked position or 990F with door locked If actual temp condition occurred, look for welded relay contacts or high resistance connection or any cause in the oven temperature sensor circuit F3 Open oven temperature sensor circuit Measure oven temperature sensor circuit at oven temperature sensor (should be approx 1100 ohms at room temp); check for cut or pinched wire or loss of contact F4 Shorted oven temperature sensor circuit Same as above; check for melted connector or both leads shorted to ground F8 Component failure within Electronic Range Control (ERC) effecting temp processing circuits Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC) F9 Problem with door lock circuit such as pinched wire between Electronic Range Control (ERC) and door lock switch Check wiring and test operation of switch

Thank you for contacting Fixya.
It's possible it could be the senser, just two screws hold it on and the wires unplug with a connector.
As to understand it in details whether the sesor is the bad part you can use a ohm meter to test the sensor, it should read about 1100 ohms at room temperature, if so, then your oven sensor is good.
You can get a cheap ohm meter at Radio Shack or any hardware store. If your oven sensor tests good, then your control board would need to be replaced.
That would help to resolve the issue.

Shorted or open oven temperature sensor (RTD)
Check sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD) if wiring is ok.
Watchdog and hardware conflict
Replace clock (ERC).
