SOURCE: GE JTP 1580W288 Set oven to Bake, switches to broil at bake temp

The F2 Error code means the oven has detected an excess temperature condition. Most often this is due to a bad temperature sensor - the sensor costs about $75 from an online repair site. 
How to remove and replace the temperature sensor. In most GE ovens, when you open the door, you'll see the rod-shaped temperature sensor sticking out of the back wall at the upper left. It's about six inches long and a bit more than 1/8" in diameter, held in place with two screws. 

Turn off the circuit breaker (built-in ovens) or unplug the range before attempting the replacement. 

The replacement sensor will come with instructions, but basically it's a matter of removing the sensor, pulling out the wires to where they are connected and disconnecting them. You may have to snip. The replacement sensor will come with high-temp wire nuts to hold the new connection. Polarity doesn't matter; it's a straight resistance thermocouple. Hook it up, be sure you poke the connections back far enough so that they're on the other side of the thermal insulation and not resting against the back of the oven. 

If you continue getting the F2 error after replacing the sensor, then the problem is likely in the control module - this is the circuit board behind the keypad and clock. 

You'll need to remove the decorative bezel to get behind the control panel. Remove screws and set off parts in order - it's not complicated. Once the bezel is off there are two more screws that hold the panel in place. Then you can lift the panel up about a half inch and pivot it forward toward you. You'll see a bunch of wires going to a circuit board. 

On the panel you will notice some black plastic boxes that say "Potter & Brumfield" on them. These are relays. Check the relays - slide the black plastic cover straight up to expose the coil and the contacts. The coil, when energized, closes the contacts - look at all the relays. You can manually close the contacts with your finger (be gentle). If the contacts of one of them are stuck, they might be welded together. You can fix the problem by prying apart the welded contacts gently with a knife blade. Take some time to gently polish the relay contacts with a folded bit of fine grain sandpaper - this will get some more life out of them. Be gentle and careful - the relays aren't complicated but if you bend the contact or rip it out, you'll have to replace the controller, which will set you back a couple hundred dollars. If you unstick and burnish the relays, they will probably eventually weld together again as the rough spot will spark, but when you burnish them with sandpaper they should be good for some more life before they need to be replaced. 

If the problem isn't the temp sensor or welded relay contacts then the problem is obviously somewhere else, but temp sensor and relay contacts will account for the lion's share of F2 errors. 

Once again, be safe, be careful, be gentle. Ovens are not very complicated and they're tough, but always exercise care. Always disconnect electricity before messing with them.
good luck,

SOURCE: I have a Frigidaire model

Check your circuit breaker. Digital display and clock use 120V. Elements use 220V. carefully remove the elements and test for voltage where they plug in. If no power turn the breakers of and then back on again.
If power check the elements for continuity. :But if the heating elements have continuity then problem relates to faulty EOC .
Electronic oven control failure Replace electronic oven control (also called EOC or clock).EOC on the back of the control panel and another one in the back on the bottom. The total cost for parts alone is $438 then add in the service call cost.------- Also it can be faulty relay causing the problem.

You can get required parts from online sites like: --- www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect online site.

Frigidaire pleb30t8ccb top oven won't heat on bake or broil. It doesn't give any error codes. I ohm tested the heat sensor and it showed no resistance. will this keep the oven from hea


Try resetting your breaker first. Next make sure all of your wiring is properly in tact. When you have nothing working, it is usually the power source .

Frigidaire oven wont heat up but stovetop and digital all works


Hello angeleyez82 - The EOC (electronic oven control/control board) basically sends power to both the broil and bake elements. As long as the power supply to the range (240VAC) and wiring between the elements is correct, then typically only the element(s) or EOC could prevent the unit from heating. I hope this information helps to some degree.

Frigidaire oven not heating


In the oven, does the heating element and the broil element not work, or is it just one? You might just have a bad element, or a bad control board.

We have a Frigidaire CPE30S8CC2 with the bottom bake element not working. We tried to replace it with no luck. The old element does not look burnt out at all. The timer, clock and broil all work just fine. The bake button works and you can set the temp. it just doesn't actually heat up at all. There are no knobs on the controls for any cook top. it is all on a circuit board for overn only. help?

Electric Oven Won't Heat


Rob, sounds like it was just installed. You need 240V on this unit. On the terminal block in back where the power hooks up, it should read 240V across the two outer terminals and 120V from each end to center terminal. Im ruling out the thermal cut out because you never used it. I would start with the power source first. The display sounds like it's getting the 120V it needs to funtion, but I don't think your making the loop for the 240V needed for the bake and broil. Catriver.
