    I have the same problem...we turn on the self-cleaning thingy and then all we hear for the nxt 3 hrs is this REALLY annoying beeping that goes on and off about every 3 seconds...we think that 3 hrs is about the time that the oven cools down and thats why it eventually stops beeping, but we're not sure...we just keep hitting the "clear/off" v\button, but you can imagine how trying that gets...HELP!!!!

    after 2 hours of self cleaning the f2 light comes on and it beeps. Constantly hit the clear pad. Do I need to throw the circuit breaker and wait for it to cool down?

The F2 Error code means the oven has detected an excess temperature condition. Most often this is due to a bad temperature sensor - the sensor costs about $75 from an online repair site. 
How to remove and replace the temperature sensor. In most GE ovens, when you open the door, you'll see the rod-shaped temperature sensor sticking out of the back wall at the upper left. It's about six inches long and a bit more than 1/8" in diameter, held in place with two screws. 

Turn off the circuit breaker (built-in ovens) or unplug the range before attempting the replacement. 

The replacement sensor will come with instructions, but basically it's a matter of removing the sensor, pulling out the wires to where they are connected and disconnecting them. You may have to snip. The replacement sensor will come with high-temp wire nuts to hold the new connection. Polarity doesn't matter; it's a straight resistance thermocouple. Hook it up, be sure you poke the connections back far enough so that they're on the other side of the thermal insulation and not resting against the back of the oven. 

If you continue getting the F2 error after replacing the sensor, then the problem is likely in the control module - this is the circuit board behind the keypad and clock. 

You'll need to remove the decorative bezel to get behind the control panel. Remove screws and set off parts in order - it's not complicated. Once the bezel is off there are two more screws that hold the panel in place. Then you can lift the panel up about a half inch and pivot it forward toward you. You'll see a bunch of wires going to a circuit board. 

On the panel you will notice some black plastic boxes that say "Potter & Brumfield" on them. These are relays. Check the relays - slide the black plastic cover straight up to expose the coil and the contacts. The coil, when energized, closes the contacts - look at all the relays. You can manually close the contacts with your finger (be gentle). If the contacts of one of them are stuck, they might be welded together. You can fix the problem by prying apart the welded contacts gently with a knife blade. Take some time to gently polish the relay contacts with a folded bit of fine grain sandpaper - this will get some more life out of them. Be gentle and careful - the relays aren't complicated but if you bend the contact or rip it out, you'll have to replace the controller, which will set you back a couple hundred dollars. If you unstick and burnish the relays, they will probably eventually weld together again as the rough spot will spark, but when you burnish them with sandpaper they should be good for some more life before they need to be replaced. 

If the problem isn't the temp sensor or welded relay contacts then the problem is obviously somewhere else, but temp sensor and relay contacts will account for the lion's share of F2 errors. 

Once again, be safe, be careful, be gentle. Ovens are not very complicated and they're tough, but always exercise care. Always disconnect electricity before messing with them.
good luck....

My oven gets a F2 code


F2 means usually, that the board detected that it's too hot.

Whirlpool oven RBS245PDB2 - Was getting the E3 F2 code and just replaced the control panel. Am now getting a new error code - E0 F2. Any thoughts?


F2-E0 - Shorted Touch Pad (Keypad) - Check the connection between the touch pad (keypad) and control board (clock) to make sure it is secure.
Select the 'cancel' function and wait 60 seconds.
If error code reappears then replace the touch pad, or touch pad and control board (clock) if all one assembly.

Ge profile wall oven - f7 but I fix with eraser trick - now the clock can't be reset and the 4 does not always work on the keypad


F7 stuck keypad
Stuck keypad may mean relay is turned on.
Determine if problem is with the Key Panel or Control by:
1. Pushing CLEAR/OFF pad.
2. Disconnecting Ribbon Cable from control and waiting at least 32 seconds to see if Code recurs

If code recurs, problem is in the control. Replace control.

If code does not recur, problem is with the Key Panel.

GE ModelJTP14 oven, after 30 minutes at 350, the oven flashed a F2 code. Cooled and restarted the oven at 350, after 26 minutes it flashed F3. I have been remodeling and have taken the oven out of the...


check the codes for your particular model..they are included witht he wiring diagram that came with your oven. F2 likely means your control board (ERC) has an issue. I can't vouch for accuracy but here's another location with fault code listings http://www.appliancepartspros.com/repairtips/repairtips_appliance+fault+codes.aspx#GE Range / Stove / Oven Fault Codes

You can try turning the circuit breaker off that feeds power to your oven ( in your house electrical panel) that might work. If it does not, unfortunately it might be indicating a need to replace the control board... good luck!

When cooking will get an occasional f2 or f5 error code


HI, This seems to be another ERC issue. the temperature sensory circuit is malfunctioning. the oven will not operate while this condition exist within the ERC. This malfunction will allow your oven to over heat and may cause a fire. The second issue will be that the relay drive circuit is malfunctioning as well. If you cant cancel the error code and continue with normal usage, you will have to replace the ERC once more.

Please rate and god bless:)

F2 error code


Intermittents are a real problem. My first guess: look around for a corroded or damaged electrical feed. Could be electrical noise from that. Not sure what No other possiblities other than a bad panel. I don't know what F2 is.
