The F2 Error code means the oven has detected an excess temperature condition. Most often this is due to a bad temperature sensor - the sensor costs about $75 from an online repair site. 
How to remove and replace the temperature sensor. In most GE ovens, when you open the door, you'll see the rod-shaped temperature sensor sticking out of the back wall at the upper left. It's about six inches long and a bit more than 1/8" in diameter, held in place with two screws. 

Turn off the circuit breaker (built-in ovens) or unplug the range before attempting the replacement. 

The replacement sensor will come with instructions, but basically it's a matter of removing the sensor, pulling out the wires to where they are connected and disconnecting them. You may have to snip. The replacement sensor will come with high-temp wire nuts to hold the new connection. Polarity doesn't matter; it's a straight resistance thermocouple. Hook it up, be sure you poke the connections back far enough so that they're on the other side of the thermal insulation and not resting against the back of the oven. 

If you continue getting the F2 error after replacing the sensor, then the problem is likely in the control module - this is the circuit board behind the keypad and clock. 

You'll need to remove the decorative bezel to get behind the control panel. Remove screws and set off parts in order - it's not complicated. Once the bezel is off there are two more screws that hold the panel in place. Then you can lift the panel up about a half inch and pivot it forward toward you. You'll see a bunch of wires going to a circuit board. 

On the panel you will notice some black plastic boxes that say "Potter & Brumfield" on them. These are relays. Check the relays - slide the black plastic cover straight up to expose the coil and the contacts. The coil, when energized, closes the contacts - look at all the relays. You can manually close the contacts with your finger (be gentle). If the contacts of one of them are stuck, they might be welded together. You can fix the problem by prying apart the welded contacts gently with a knife blade. Take some time to gently polish the relay contacts with a folded bit of fine grain sandpaper - this will get some more life out of them. Be gentle and careful - the relays aren't complicated but if you bend the contact or rip it out, you'll have to replace the controller, which will set you back a couple hundred dollars. If you unstick and burnish the relays, they will probably eventually weld together again as the rough spot will spark, but when you burnish them with sandpaper they should be good for some more life before they need to be replaced. 

If the problem isn't the temp sensor or welded relay contacts then the problem is obviously somewhere else, but temp sensor and relay contacts will account for the lion's share of F2 errors. 

Once again, be safe, be careful, be gentle. Ovens are not very complicated and they're tough, but always exercise care. Always disconnect electricity before messing with them.
good luck..,,
thanks

You may have gotten water in the control panel. After it dries out it should be fine.

SOURCE: Ge profile f2 error while broiling in upper oven

F2
During

BAKE Control senses oven
temperature above 615F-630F If actual over temperature condition occurred: Look for
welded relay contacts on bake or broil relays. If this happens, replace oven
control (also called clock or ERC).

If no over temperature condition
occurred
: Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high
resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness
and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if
found defective.

Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance
of sensor circuit , not actual oven temperature. F2
During
CLEAN Control senses oven temperature above
915F-930F If actual over temperature condition

F3 and F2 Errror messages on my GE convection oven


F2 & F3 are fault codes relating to the oven temperature sensor

F2 during bake means a temperature of over 630 deg has been reached
F3 means shorted oven temperature sensor

What it means is you will most likely need to have the oven temperature sensor (thermostat) replaced .

My GE JTP45WOV2WW Double Oven is beeping with an F2 code and I don't know how to stop it


F2 means the controller thinks the oven is over temperature. (590degrees if door is unlocked, 990degrees if door is locked). This is a problem with either your temperature sensor or the control board.
If the temperature sensor is about 1080 ohms at room temperature, it is very likely the control board.

GE: E Profile Single Electric Oven Model: JSP40W0WJWW


First press and hold the cancel/off button for 10 seconds.
If that does not work you have a bad thermal switch due to excessive heat buildup. Possibly a bad fan motor.
The 2 thermal switches are located on top of the oven behind the control panel.

GE Oven JKP26GP2 getting F2 error, even when not in use. I ohmed out the Temp sensor at room temp it is 1091ohms. The other 2 sensors check NO and NC. It's 100 bucks for a new Temp Sensor.....just don't...


F2 usually means the temp sensor is not working. here is a link to "F" codes.
http://www.repairclinic.com/0078.asp#JennAir
It has many manufacturers listed,so scroll to the GE ones.
The reason it beeps when not in use is b/c the EOC is reading the error in the part.

Good Luck!

GE Profile Wall Oven Model JCKP16GS-1


It sounds like this is a common occurance among GE ovens.
Shut off the power at the box, then remove faceplate then remove the keypad.
after doing so, remove it from connector, and clean pins with an eraser.
Make sure the terminals are clean of debris, and check for a reset button on the back of the keypad.
I hope this helped you out.
