How to stop f2 on the oven? 

In this brief article, we will answer the question, “How to stop f2 on the oven?” and provide information on the temperature sensor as well as the control panel of the oven.

How to stop f2 on the oven

If you observe f2 on the oven, then unplug the oven and let it rest for 30 seconds. Post the 30 seconds, plug the oven back in and check whether the error appears again.

What is an f2 error?

There are error codes that are present in the general electronic ovens. These codes are present in the electronic ovens to help the technicians detect errors. If these error codes appear, you can try fixing the problem yourself or call a technician.

If the f2 error is displayed, it indicates a glitch or it indicates that certain parts of the oven might need to be replaced. F2 error is often displayed while you are cleaning the oven or using it to bake something. 

What needs to be done if the f2 error appears in the oven?

If the f2 error appears on the oven, check the source of the error first. It could simply be a glitch.

The f2 error code will usually appear on the LCD screen during which you would not be able to use the oven. The oven will shut down after the oven beeps two times.

You can unplug the oven and then plug it back in after 30 seconds. If the oven still displays the f2 error, it would mean that certain parts of the oven might need to be replaced and the f2 error is not a glitch.

The relay of the oven would need to be checked carefully. The relay would be present close to the broiler, above the oven. If the relay does not appear to be in a proper condition, you would need to replace it.

If the relay does not appear to be damaged, check the temperature sensor of the oven. If the wires of the sensor appear to be damaged, they would need to be replaced. The damaged temperature sensor can be responsible for faulty detection of the heat in the oven.

If you think you can replace the oven parts on your own, you can refer to the model number of the oven in the manual to buy the parts. If you have misplaced the manual, check the model number displayed on the label present in the front of the oven. 

If you are not sure that you can replace the parts of the oven or you are unable to detect the source of the f2 error, it is better to call the oven repair service.

What is a temperature sensor?

The temperature sensor is a thermistor that is responsible for modulating the temperature of the oven. It has a lead pair that is connected to the control panel and helps in detecting the current that converts to temperature.

The meter would showcase the f2 code if the temperature exceeds more than 630 degrees Fahrenheit. If it is a self-cleaning oven, the f2 error code might be displayed when the temperature would exceed 930 degrees Fahrenheit.

If the f2 error code is displayed, it could be an indication of the oven’s control panel or the censor not functioning properly.

How to check whether the temperature sensor is working well?

You can use an ohmmeter to check whether the temperature sensor is working well. For this purpose, check for the sensor in the oven compartment and unplug it.

Set the ohmmeter to zero ohms at a range of 2000 or 4000. Insert the receptacles into the sensor and start reading. If the reading ranges from 1080 to 1090 ohms, it means that the temperature sensor is functioning properly.

If the reading is higher than 1090 ohms, it indicates that the sensor is malfunctioning and not working properly. You would need to replace the sensor.

How to check the control panel of the oven?

If the temperature sensor is working properly but the oven has still been displaying the f2 error, it is time to check the control panel.

Check the control panel by removing the casing around the control panel. Unplug the stove or switch off the breaker before you do this.

Unscrew the panel and have a look at the electrical fittings. You can order the components that need to be replaced online and fit the control panel back into the oven.
