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. First, just flip the breaker off to the oven or unplug the oven for 30 seconds and plug it back in. Look inside the oven and if the broil or bake element is glowing, unplug the oven or flip the breaker off until you replace the main control board. Otherwise, let the oven just cool down while plugged in and see if the door unlocks and resets.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 cannot do this I am by my self and don’t know how to open the door for it is locked! It is a built in oven don’t know where the plug is??? Can’t get to the breaker
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 24 days ago

Until the oven cools down, you can't unlock the door. If you can't unplug the unit and you can't get to the breaker---it's time to call a technician out to repair this for you, these are not issues I can control.
