There is a thermal relay on the rear of the oven that tends to blow during self clean cycles. It is the most likely problem.
Remove the oven,turn off the power,remove the rear panel to access the thermal relay.It is not re-settable. It must be replaced.

Had same problem with my KitchenAid. 10 years old. Ran self cleaning cycle, oven died!!!! Called repair. Appears to be thermal fuse. Part on order. Microcomputer had some brown spots on it. Tey wanted us to replace it too. But will wait to see if fuse is problem. Repair - $150 vs. $570. If it's the higher price, we'll buy a new oven before putting that kind of money into it. Will NEVER run a clean cycle again even if I have to buy a new oven.

change temp control

Usually this is caused by either a bad temperature sensor, a shorted wiring harness, or commonly a faulty controller. The temperature sensor and wiring can be checked with an ohm meter.

When you program the oven for a high temperature what does the display read after ten minutes or so?

most likely the safety latch got stuck from the super heat of the oven while cleaning. try tapping the latch with a screwdriver and hammer, spray a bit of wd-40 on it wont hurt. i believe the self cleaning on ovens is crazy, as the heat damages things, including the finish of the unit.

Things to check- The screw in fuses, they are usually the 30 amp fuses for the oven. Next is the clock assembly, often these clocks will have the words "push for manual" or "turn for manual", this will put the clock back into the normal operating mode rather than the automatic mode. Next, you may have to remove the power and check for any burnt wires. If all checks ok, you will have to test the selector switch and oven control.
 Oven temp problems: Temperature is too low possible trouble makers, blown oven fuse, bake element is out, burnt wire, oven probe clips, oven temp control, oven temp sensor.
Temperature is too high in the oven possible trouble makers, oven temp control, oven relay ( if used ), oven probe clips, oven temp sensor, shorted wire.
These oven probe clips often rust off and the oven temp probe hangs down, or touches the oven wall giving false temperature readings to the oven control.

The answer is not as hard as it seems. I just tried for 10 minutes unsuccessfully to put the glass back in the two side tracks. Well the glass actually goes in front of them, the top holds the glass in place.

This could be caused by the eye control switch,the eye itself is bad,or the electrical block where the eye itself plugs in.These can be checked with a volt/ohm meter.Also a wire could have burnt under the stove top.Hope this helps. Gregg

HI. this F-2 is a code that represents a oven temp that is way to high and it is not registering on the oven temp.

1. Look for welded relay contacts on bake or broil relays. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).
2. For SELF CLEAN models: check door lock operation.
3. Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective.

Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit, not actual oven temperature.
