Aman biult in oven

The oven is 5-6 yrs old. F2 code started beeping and the repairman changed the sensor. It did not stop. He thought the sensor was deffective and changed another one. No change so he changed the control panel behind the clock and the oven now shuts off by itself no matter what temperature it is. I have tried conv bake, regular bake, conv oven itself but no change.
what could it bee? It already cost us 500$.

Re: Aman biult in oven

F2 is Oven sensor is out of range .. oven sensor is sending a reading that the control can not understand... replace oven sensor and you may have to replace the control too as it may not be reading correctly... good luck and let me know if it helps

When I bake, my oven will start beeping and flash F2, what is that and how do I stop it?

Which manufacturer built your oven? The F2 error usually means that the oven temperature sensor is claiming the oven is too hot (or got too hot in the past). This usually requires replacing the temperature sensor. Sometimes, the control unit (clock) needs to be replaced.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the make and model of your oven for additional support.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F2-E3 error means open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the sensor needs replacement. If you want to do it yourself and wan to be sure before replacing the sensor then you can test it with a voltmeter between 1080-1120ohms....if it reads more then or less then this then it needs replacement however, if the reading is around between 1080-1120ohms then it is the control board that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F2-E6 error code indicates an open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the temp.sensor needs replacement. If you want to be sure then before replacing the sensor you can test it with a voltmeter for around 1100ohms....if it reads more then 1120 ohms then it needs replacement however, if the reading is between 1080-1120 ohms then it is the control board that needs replacement. However, after reading your problem it seems that the sensor is causing this and replacing it is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

What is F2?

F2 Oven temp sensed; over 600F sensed by control in time of day mode, bake mode, or over 900F sensed in clean mode. Ohm test the oven temperature sensor, if OK, change power relay board. F2 Oven too hot Replace relay board (if present) or oven temperature sensor

Oven does not start

This is an update from James758. When I pressed the temp sensor probe and wiggled it a bit, sometimes the oven would work, but then it failed permanently after a few days. Had to call a repairman who charged $325 to replace the entire electronic panel and the separate sensor, although the failed part was only a relay on the board according to him. He also found a pinched wire when he pulled the oven out (one new electronic board relay failed when he first replaced it). Don't know how the wire to the sensor got pinched since the oven worked for 8 years without us moving that hidden wire. By the way, buying the sensor at a parts store in town was $18 versus his cost to us of $49. I'm sure the electronic board would also be much cheaper online. My wife watched the repairman replace the parts; you can save a lot of money doing it yourself.

Dacor single oven flashes an F2 error code and won't stop beeping!!!

This is from manufacture service manual:

-F2- Alarm Heating Mode High Temperature
Is activated when the ERC senses a runaway heat condition or when the temperature exceeds
“runaway limits”. The ERC will beep until the cancel or another function is selected. If the alarm
repeats the F2 alarm check the oven sensor and wiring after fi rst checking for a stuck relay. If alarm
goes away verify the oven will complete a clean cycle without any type of failure.
Another words the problem with oven sensor or relay board.

Maytag Electric Oven Model#CRE9400ACW (approx. 14 yrs old) receiving F2 and F3 codes. What needs to be repaired? Can oven still be used?

You should check that there is no physical damage to the sensor or thatthe connectors are still intact. but after 14yrs - i think its the sensor thatneeds to be changed

F2 code and consistent beeping with my Maytag Electric Wall Oven model CWE5800 or CWE4800

The F2 code indicates a stuck relay. You will have to replace the relay board. It may be a stand alone board or it may be part of the ERC Electronic Range Control. If you know how to check you won't have to call a tech.

Amana wall oven

Hi~ According to the manual for this oven, the F2 code signifies - high oven temperature. The only suggestion for any of the codes in the manual is to disconnect the electrical supply. It says" pressing OVEN CANCEL pad or disconnecting electrical supply may eliminate "F code". If failure continues, contact an authorized servicer.
I hope this helps. Linda
