I just rented this house and it has a GE electric stove.

Customer Question
I just rented this...

I just rented this house and it has a GE electric stove. When I use the oven, once it heats up, I get a F2 alert with a ringing noise. I was cooking today, and the oven stops heating when this alert shows up. How can I get rid of that? I hate that my dinner was ruined.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Model # J BP27WOK1WW Serial # SH2 815640 Looks less than 5 years.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes. If it is a matter of resetting something.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No. I thought this would be an easy fix.

F2 means that your oven thinks your oven sensor is shorted. This is either a bad oven sensor or a bad display relay control board. You can't test the board but you can test the sensor. Open the door and remove the 3-4" long thin metal rod attached to the back wall. There are 2 screws holding the sensor on that you can remove and then pull the sensor forward until you can disconnect it. With a multimeter, check the resistance of the sensor at room temperature and it should be about 1080 ohms. If it's not, replace the sensor, otherwise you need to replace your relay board.
