    2 hours into self cleaning, the oven began to beep and show the F2 code.

  • Anonymous Mar 18, 2008

    Don't know the model, but I was about half way through conducing a self clean when the the "F2" appeared and the oven started beeping with "Door Locked" continuously blinking along with the beeps.

    Hello! I have a GE oven-don't know the model number, but am having the same F2 error code and loud beeping appearing halfway through my cleaning session. What can I do to get it to stop?

    I have a GE JKP15 self cleaning oven giving an F2 error code. I ohmed out the sensing circuit at 1100 ohms at room temp and verified that the lock thermal switch is closed. ANy suggestions besides replacing the ERC? The oven worked fine until the self cleaning cycle was enabled. F2 popped up the first time we used the oven after the ceaning cycle....

    I have the exact same problem.  GE Profile, wall oven.  Self-cleaning and half way through, the F2 came on with a constant beeping.

    We just moved into an apt that has the same oven you guys have. It wasn't cleaned out before we moved in so I decided to use the self cleaning feature to get it halfway clean. About an hour and a half into it, it started beeping this annoying beep and showed F2 on the display. I would push buttons and it would stop for a few seconds but it would start back up. I finally had to turn the breaker off. Once the oven cooled down, I turned the breaker back on and it seems fine now. Wierd!

    I keep getting a f2 code and my oven shuts down can anyone help?

  • Anonymous Jan 21, 2009

    I have the same problem. same model.

  • laurazina Mar 15, 2009

    I have the same problem! Annoying.

    I had the same exact error after the electricity went out a year ago. I paid someone to come out and fix it.

    I turned the breaker off because the beeping was driving us insane. Cross your fingers it turns back on and stops the beeping.

    I am thinking there is a flaw in these GE ovens. I had a similar oven that was a Whirlpool and never had these issues.

    Next time I'll figure out a different way to clean the damn oven : )

Hi there,
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

Note: Also see fan thermal switches - Indicates that oven is over temperature in one of the following modes within either a cooking or clean mode of operation.
· Control senses oven temperature above 650 degrees F with the door circuit in the unlock mode.
· Control senses oven temperature above 935 degrees F with the door in the locked mode.
· Stalled cooling fan or airflow problem.

· Look for welded relay contacts. (Heating elements on in off mode).
· Look for open thermal switch in lock motor circuit. Switch is normally closed and will open if area overheats due to fan not operating. Look for cause - fan thermal switch not closing, fan stalled, etc.
· Look for high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit due to high contact resistance (poor terminal crimp, deformed terminals, loose connection) or intermittent solder joint on control or intermittent oven temperature sensor.

This can be caused by a bad temperature sensor.

I went out to my circuit breakers and turned the circuit off, let the oven cool, and powered it back up after about 2 hours. Fine now.

  • Arkie-Annie Sep 23, 2008

    I fixed it! All you have to do is go to your electrical circuit box and flip the switch that is connected to the oven, off and on, and the oven will turn off. After it cools down, the problem goes away!

I self cleaned the oven and over 12 hours later am getting a f2 error. How do I fix it?


The F2 error code means that the oven over heated by at least 100 degrees and the oven temp.sensor needs to be replaced.

On the self clean cycle the oven temp can easily reach over 600 dergees and therefore the sensor thinks it got too hot. If you have not already done so the F2 can be cleared by pushing the CLEAR/OFF button on the control...if the F2 error code reappears the sensor has became defective and it would need to be replaced.

F2 error code while in self-cleaning mode


F2 Error indicates a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue test the oven temp. sensor, it should read between 1080-1120 ohms, if the rating is more then that and the door appears to be closing fine then it is the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Tried to do self cleaning on oven, about 10 minutes in got "f2 locked door" and it won't clean. what is that all about?

Error code F2 on clean cycle is indicating that the maximum permissable cleaning temperature has been exceeded. (or it's got too hot!)

However it seems unlikely that that would happen in just 10 mins. more likely it is a problem with the oven temperature sensor which should be checked over as should the lock switches..

Self-clean turns off after 5 minutes with F2 error message

Hi MaryB,

F2 error code means that the oven temperature is too hot. You will have to replace relay board if faulty. Check and replace oven temperature sensor (RTD). If failure repeats, replace ERC (electronic range control or clock).For replacement part you may contact Sears at 1-800-252-1698; M-F 6:30 AM-10:30 PM - Sat 7:00 AM-9:30 PM - Sun 7:30 AM-9:30 PM - All times Central.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.
