Oven goes into Hyper Hot Immediateley?

Hello, Ge Oven flashed f2 code. this is overheating. Replaced breaker, as soon as power was on the Oven immediately went in to High Heat Mode, without turning or touching anything on the stove. unplugged the oven, plugged it in  and it went into high heat again without even touching anything? does this sound like a board problem? stove had been working fine up to this point. Just out of the blue it wants to run the oven on its own?

It's either a problem in the board or one of the elements is shorted to ground.  Most likely one of the relays on the board is bad so the board would have to be replaced.  If you have a multimeter you can check this.  Unplug the range and take the back panel off to get to the elements.  Take one wire off of each of the elements. Set meter to ohms to check resistance.  Put one meter lead on one end of the element (where you disconnected the wire) and the other lead to ground.  If that shows resistance then the element is shorted to ground.  Do this with both elements.  If neither element is grounded then replace the oven control board.

    If you disconnected the wires from the element and taped them up good so no wire is exposed the element would not come on.  However, I would not suggest doing this for safety reasons.  You will still have 240 volts at the ends of those wires.

The F2 code means that the oven overheated by at least 100degrees(a bad sensor will cause that)
the F3 means that the oven sensor is shorted,so both of them are consistiant with defective oven tempature sensor and the sensor should be replaced.

The oven sensor is a pictured here oldtech2332_134.jpg
It is located in the oven baking chamber and can be replaced by unscrewing the screws from the bracket at the end of,pull it out unplug it,then reverse that process to install the new one.
With 2 different codes pointing to a bad sensor its apretty safe bets its bad.

GE ModelJTP14 oven, after 30 minutes at 350, the oven flashed a F2 code. Cooled and restarted the oven at 350, after 26 minutes it flashed F3. I have been remodeling and have taken the oven out of the...

check the codes for your particular model..they are included witht he wiring diagram that came with your oven. F2 likely means your control board (ERC) has an issue. I can't vouch for accuracy but here's another location with fault code listings Range / Stove / Oven Fault Codes

You can try turning the circuit breaker off that feeds power to your oven ( in your house electrical panel) that might work. If it does not, unfortunately it might be indicating a need to replace the control board... good luck!

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

Ge oven codes

F2 means your oven temp got too high. At least, that's what the control boards thinks. More than likely you have a bad oven sensor or bad wire to it or a bad connection somewhere between the board and sensor.

F2 Oven overheats

jaz3133, it's probably the temp sensor that has gone bad. You should be able to get it from the front. It's the probe that comes out from the back wall of the oven. You can have someone ohm it out. Should read approx 1100 ohms at room temp. Part number for the temp sensor is WB20K5040. Make sure power is off befor removing the sensor. back.
