Question about GE Profile JTP56 Electric Double Oven
Well, a couple weeks ago after starting the Self Clean Cycle on my GE JTP56, the display started blinking the F2 error, along with door locked (and the door was locked).
I did some research and I did purchase a new sensor for the local parts. While replacing, I did check the ohm of the old vs the new and it seemed like the old one was ok.
I replaced the sensor anyway (it has a lifetime warranty).
I continue to get this error (about 30 minutes after starting the self clean cycle) and wonder if I should have the control board rebuilt or replaced.
I have the the same problem as discribed above. Does you oven fan go on for a long time after you use your oven during regular baking. Mine seems to stay on for 45 minutes after I bake anything. Can this be all tied together with the f2 problem? I am wondering if it is not just a fan circulation problem?

Ugh - same here - we're trying the fan, but I think it's too late

I tried putting the fan in front of the control panel and it worked. I had used a fan before but had placed it on the counter a few feet away from the oven. It went to the F2 problem in about and hour and a half. This time I used a mini tower fan that I got from Costco and laid it on its side, inches from the space between the oven door and control panel. This is the first time that the cleaning cycle has been completed in years on the upper oven! Thanks for the solution!

The cooling fan behind the control board has a screen to act as some sort of filter - mine was completely clogged. This in effect eliminated the function of the cooling fan and my control board got fried. I punched the screen out - it solved my problem.

I recently had to replace the electronic control unit on my four-year-old Profile double oven after a continuing F2 errors displaying all the time. Evidently, the heat build up on the self-clean cycle was the culprit - according to my repair company. The repairman said that the "self clean" button display should be replaced with a "self destruct" display - he thought that was funny - I did not as I am now about $400 poorer for that education. So... my solution per recommendation of my repairman - place a strong fan facing the oven electronic display section when you self-clean. That should get the heat from going up and out the top of the oven door and into your electronics. Similiar to the fan inside your computer keeping the heat away from the electronics - electronic components HATE heat. Hope this helps!

I have the exact same problem. Thanks, I'll just wait for it to cool down.
