I used the self cleaning mode for 2 hours and the error f2 keeps flashing and beeping, I did try to power off with the breaker and left it off for about a half hour and it still continues to beep and flash f2, what should I do?

Hello, The first thing I'd look at is your owner's manual to insure the timer hasn't been set to "Sabbath" mode accidently. If that is the case you could experience a "no display" scenario. The manual will also explain how to enter/exit the "Sabbath" mode. In the event the timer itself is at fault ( i.e. the display transformer gone bad ) it will have to be replaced or (if an available option exist's for your timer) have your timer rebuilt. Hope that help's and please take a second and rate the info provided by me here at fixya. Thank you and good luck. macmarkus :)

Please, don't replace anything before trying this first! The insulation in the ribbon cable is poor, so the conductors in the cable become crossed. The ribbon cable is actually two ribbons pressed together, and the conductors between the two cables are shorting or becomming crossed. Lift the two cables apart, place a piece of paper between them, fold the edges of the paper over the cable so that it does not slip out, and make sure to shove it all the way down to where it will meet the plastic display panel housing. There, problem solved, and you didn't have to buy new parts.

SOURCE: beeping F11
F11 is a keypad short. This was actually a simple fix when I got into it. Take off the top rear panel. You will need a drill driver or #2 square drive. Once inside: the EOC is held in by 4 screws. Remove those and pull out the EOC.
My diagnosis on the problem is this: The keypad connection to the EOC is the thin plastic serial connector on the top of the unit, looping to the back. What I figure is that this plastic must have the tendency to warp under the influence of heat and thus reduces the good connection to the serial input on the EOC. There is a black plastic connection protector on the input side of the serial connector at the EOC. Gently pull this off and pull the serial connector out and give it a good cleaning. Place the serial connector back in the receiver and replace the connection protector back on. ( tricky. if you have ever built a model or soldered anything you will be fine.)
The serial connection will need some pressure on it to make a good connection if it is warped. My solution to this was to run a plastic cable tie thru the small holes in the top of the EOC. tighten the cable tie over the serial connector, pressing it to the top of the EOC. This gives it a good pressure on the input pins in the connection input.
Now plug the unit back in. You should have full function of the keypad. If not, it may be another issue with the keypad or EOC. This was a solution I happened to stumble on and it may not work for everyone but giving it a shot means you might save 170 dollars in parts not including the labor.
