F2 Oven over-temperature If the oven overheated, the electronic control board likely has a stuck relay; replace the electronic control board. If the oven is at room temperature, the oven temperature sensor could be defective. Unplug the range, disconnect the oven temperature sensor and check the resistance of the oven temperature sensor using a volt/ohm meter. The oven temperature sensor should measure around 1100 ohms at room temperature. If the resistance is off by more than 200 ohms off, replace the oven temperature sensor. If the resistance is normal, replace the electronic control board.
