Question about GE JTP15 Electric Single Oven
I have a GE Oven Model # JTP15WOW1WW (GE drops the "O" on their parts website for some reason). For the past couple of weeks we get a flashing F2 code after the oven has been on for about 5 to 10 minutes. We can turn off the oven. I was baking some custard yesterday at the normal temperature of 350 degrees. The F2 started flashing so I opened the oven and the top of the custard was burned as if the broiler was on. I called GE support. They said that F2 flashes when the oven senses a higher temperature then the selected temperature. She said to turn off all power to the oven for 10 minutes and then try again. She said that sometimes this resets the oven and solves the problem. I tried that and then turned the oven back on and programmed in 250 degrees, but F2 started flashing again after about 10 minutes. The oven is about 10 years old now, and we use it about 2 times a week. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Jaz3133, it's probably the temp sensor that has gone bad. You should be able to get it from the front. It's the probe that comes out from the back wall of the oven. You can have someone ohm it out. Should read approx 1100 ohms at room temp. Part number for the temp sensor is WB20K5040. Make sure power is off befor removing the sensor. Catriver..post back.

I had the same problem F2 and an alarm sound. I noticed the brioler top element was very hot and the bake bottom element was not. So I replaced the bottom heating element, The oven is back to normal, BYW, I purchased the bake element off eBay ~$50 including shipping.

Jaz, your problem is most likely the Control panel known as a ERC. After replacing the temp sensor, we replaced the ERC and it took care of the problem. The F2 error means the oven is getting too hot and is beyond normal ranges and the ERC should turn off the oven automatically. If you do a search you can find out what part your oven uses and order it online for around $130-$150, Fairly easy to install but you do have to pull the oven out of the cabinet.

Ge replaced the temp probe and cleaned the filter by the fan. No help. Still get F2 code about 20 minutes into the self clean cycle.
Ge returned and this time replaced the temp limit switch near the fan. However the technician thought that the real problem may be that the opening at the very bottom where the air is taken in is too narrow. He suggested raising the oven a half inch to allow for a bigger opening for the air.
Haven't tested the oven yet so I don't know if replacing the limit switch helped or not. If not I'll try to raise the oven.
