I'm getting an f2 code after the oven heats up. Is this the sensor?
Answer Hello Steve. Yes, the f2 code is for the oven sensor. Hope this helps.

I have a gas GE Profile range. I just replaced the membrane panel on the controls, and it was working fine. Now, the oven shuts off during the cooking after fifteen minutes or so. It will shut completely off, no indicators lit on panel except the clock. Even the kitchen timer shuts off. I can restart it again, and it will run for sometimes quite a while. Should I clean the stove entirely? Might that be the problem? I had an oven fire, and tons of black smoke emitted. Shortly after that, the control membrane went bad. Once, I saw a F2 error on the panel. But usually, it just shuts off the oven, the timer, and the display shows only the clock. Completely off.
Answer Hello Ron,
The F2 fault code indicates an over temperature inside oven cavity as measured by sensor over 650°F unlatched or 915°F latched. This can be caused by welded relay contacts on the control board or high resistance in oven sensor leads/connectors (especially at sensor in rear).
The oven will only heat to the set temperature momentarily, then decreases. I have replaced the Igniter and the oven sensor assembly.
You will need to check the wiring between the oven sensor and the control board to make sure that there is continuity. If this checks ok and there is a new sensor on the unit then the issue would be with the control board which will need to be replaced.
Had a F3 code. Replaced the sensor and still getting the code. Is it the control panel?
Answer Hello Andy. If the sensor is new, and the wiring is good, then it is the control board that is bad.
