What does it mean when your oven says F2 (+5 steps to follow)

In this brief guide, we are going to answer the question “what does it mean when your oven says F2” with an in-depth analysis of how to find and resolve the F2 error. Moreover, we are going to discuss different four-digit F2 errors and the beeping errors of the oven.

So without much ado, let’s dive in and figure out more about it.

What does it mean when your oven says F2?

F2 code generally implies that your oven has heated too much. There might be an issue with the temperature sensor of your oven that has resulted in this problem. Moreover, there can also be an issue with the control board of the oven and when that is the case it is not necessary that the oven is too hot but the reason can be that your control board is just giving false readings.

What to do if your oven says F2?

First step

First thing first, we have to know the exact reason why the oven is showing the F2 error. There can be a chance that it is just a glitch that took place because of an issue with the LCD screen of the oven.

The F2 will flash on the screen and it will beep twice. Afterward, the oven will shut down but you will still be able to see F2 frozen on the screen of the oven.  

Second step

Now unplug the oven and after 30 seconds replug it again to see if the screen still shows the F2 error. If the screen does not show the F2 error after you plug it again then that means it was just a glitch.

Third step

If after plugging the oven again it still shows the F2 error then it means that it was not simply a glitch. Now you have to figure out what the faulty part really is.

So what you have to do is to look for the relay that is situated near the broiler on the top of the oven and inspect it. If you find any fault in the relay, it means that it is the control board of the oven that you have to replace. 

Fourth step

But if the relay is functioning just fine then it means that there is no issue with the control board of your oven. 

Now is the time when you should check the temperature sensor of the oven to see if there is a problem related to it. You have to look for the damaged or faulty wires because if the wires are faulty then it means that your oven was not reading the actual reading of heat generated.

In case of the damaged wires, you still have to replace the whole of the temperature sensor. 

Fifth step

So after you have found out the particular part of the oven that is causing the problem, you can either replace it manually or you can take the assistance of some professional.

In case you can’t find out the main reason for the F2 error even after completing all the steps mentioned above on your own then it is certainly time to contact the oven repair service. 

What does it mean when your oven keeps on beeping?

At the point when the oven makes the beeping noise, it is the indication that the food is done completely. 

Some models of the ovens will keep on beeping suggesting that you should remove the food from the oven and this will continue until and unless you remove the food from the oven.

If we talk about the convection ovens, at times they come with a temperature gauge. This temperature gauge will make the beeping sound when it is at 75% of the cooking time that you originally set.

What are the different types of 4 digit F2 codes and how to resolve them?

F2-E0 – Shorted Touch Pad (Keypad)

  1. You should consider checking the association between the touchpad and the control board (clock) to ensure it is secure. 
  2. Afterward, select the ‘cancel’ function of the oven and stand by 60 seconds. 
  3. On the off chance that mistake code returns, at that point, you should consider replacing the touchpad. You have to replace both the touchpad and control board (clock) if both are in one assembly. 

F2-E1 – Touch Pad (Keypad) Cable Unplugged 

  1. You should consider checking the association between the touchpad and the control board (clock) to ensure it is secure. 
  2. Afterward, select the ‘cancel’ function of the oven and stand by 60 seconds. 
  3. On the off chance that mistake code returns, at that point, you should consider replacing the touchpad. You have to replace both the touchpad and control board (clock) if both are in one assembly. 

F2-E5 or F2-E6 – Cancel Key Line Open 

  1. You should consider checking the association between the touchpad and the control board (clock) to ensure it is secure. 
  2. Afterward, select the ‘cancel’ function of the oven and stand by 60 seconds. 
  3. On the off chance that mistake code returns, at that point, you should consider replacing the touchpad. You have to replace both the touchpad and control board (clock) if both are in one assembly.
