Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

An FL2 is a failed igniton error. Since it fires up then goes out this would indicate a flame sensing issue. You ca try cleaning the flame sensor with steel wool. It's on the right side of th burner array and has a bent metal rod positioend in the burner flame. 1 lead connected to it. Clean off the metal rod.
