I recently replaced the sensor after getting the f2 error code.
The oven seemed to work ok but only for about 2 weeks. Now I'm getting
the same error code with a new sensor.
My Model 911.4742990 built-in 27" Oven got the same code. Turning the unit off for a short period and turning it back on has allowed for continued baking.
Sears has indicated that they will not even disclose the nature of an F2 and require that I have one of their technicians come out to see the display. Really? How much does it take to see "F2"?
I have not tried to replace the sensor but will do so.

Re: Error code f2 after replacing sensor.
If the sensor utilizes a plug, it is not uncommon for the plug connection to become intermittent. Cut the plug off the sensor and the wire harness. Directly 'hard wire' the sensor wires to the harness wires using CERAMIC wire nuts.. (no polarity here, sensor is a resistive element) regular plastic wire nuts will melt. If problem persists thereafter, the electronic control may have to be replaced.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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.
Here a list of Whirpool oven fault codes. The codes had been collected from different service manuals. This was a memo that I wrote for my own use. I think this can be useful to owners and technicians.
WHIRLPOOL - most models Range/Stove and Oven Fault Codes, Common error codes.
F1 - Analog control board Failure Disconnect for one minute - if error comes back, replace control board F1 - Shorted control keypad Replace keypad F3 - Oven temperature sensor open Replace oven temperature probe F2 - Oven temperature sensor shorted Replace oven temperature probe F3 - Oven too hot Replace oven temperature probe F3 - Clean temperature too hot Replace oven probe F5 - Door latch switch fault Test and replace the door switch.
Whirlpool with 4 Digit Failure Code:
F1 - E1 - Electronic control (flip flop) Replace control board F2 - E0 - Shorted control keypad Replace keypad F3 - E0 - Oven temperature probe open Replace temperature probe F3 - E1 - Oven temperature probe shorted Replace temperature probe F3 - E2 - Oven temp too high Replace temperature probe F3 - E3 - Clean temp too hot Replace temp. probe F5 - E0 - Check door latch F5 - E1 - Check door latch Replace switch if defective
WHIRLPOOL Polara models 5 digit codes:
F1 F0 - EEPROM communication error Replace ERC F1 E1 - EEPROM checksum error Replace ERC F1 E2:7 - UL A/D errors Replace ERC F1 E4:2 - Model ID error Reinsert keytail. F1 E6:0 - Latch signal mismatch error Replace ERC F2 E0:4 - Shorted key error Replace keypad assembly F2 E1:3 Keytail unplugged reinsert the keytail F3 E0:5 Top oven sensor open Test and replace top probe. F3 E1:6 Top oven shorted Test and replace temp probe F3 E2:9 Bake range over temperature Test and replace temp probe F3 E3:8 Clean range over temperature Test and replace temp probe. F3 E4:10 Bottom oven sensor open Test and replace temp probe F3 E:15 Bottom oven sensor shorted Test and replace temp probe F5 E0:14 Door switch errot Test and eventually replace door lock switch F5 E1:16 Door latch not operating Test and eventually replace door latch F8 E0:17 Refrigeration error Test the cooling module. PF Power failure - Does not indicate a fault. PF occurs when power is disconnected.
WHIRLPOOL Models SF3, 30'' and 24"
F2 - Oven temperature above specifications Check 8-pin connector from temp. probe to Electronic Oven Control F3 - Open oven temperature probe failure Check wiring, replace oven probe if necessary F4 - Shorted oven temperature sensor failure Check wiring harness, replace oven temperature probe if necessary F5 - Push button stuck or faulty Check for binding of pushbuttons and control panel glass. If OK, replace touch panel F6 - Electronic control logic error (timing) Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC) F7 - Electronic control logic error (lock motor) Replace ERC. F8 - Electronic control logic error Replace ERC.
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. Kevin
Hi, F2 error code on the Amana Oven means "Oven too hot"
You have to replace Oven temperature sensor to fix it.
F3 error code means "Open or shorted oven temperature sensor".
Yo also have to replace Oven temperature sensor to fix it.
Summarily, both code has to do with the temperature sensor which you need to replace...
Hello,4 Digit Failure
F0 - E0
for 30 seconds - if display re-appears - replace control

operation of door lock on self-clean models 2. Test relay contact operation 3. High resistance in oven temperature sensor
Your cancel key is defective at this point. follow these steps below?
1. Check keypad connector for firm connection (keypad connects to control
2. Press CANCEL. If error code returns after 60 seconds, replace keypad
(also called touch pad or membrane switch). Some models incorporate keypad
in to control board as one unit. In this case, replace control board (also
called ERC or clock).
These are the F2/F3 error codes for a Tappan oven
Check Bake function, if OK, replace oven temperature sensor
temperature sensor open
oven temperature sensor, should
be ~1100 ohms at room temperature. If too high or low, replace
oven temperature sensor please take the time to give this solution a fix ya rating.
