Customer Question
I have a GE...

I have a GE gas oven. I have been getting an ‘F-2’ error, usually accompanied by a constant beeping sound.

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

About 10 years old. Can’t find a model number. It has 4 round burners and a center oval burner with a grill type cover.

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

I don’t know what needs to be done.

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

I usually unplug the stove then plug it back in to reset it.

To start, 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.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here.
