Kenmore ovens are known for their quality and dependability, but even the best appliances can sometimes experience problems. One of the most common issues that can occur is the dreaded F2 error code. This code indicates that there is a problem with the oven's temperature sensor, and it can be caused by a few different things.

If the sensor itself is damaged or defective, it will need to be replaced. Another possibility is that there is something wrong with the wiring connecting the sensor to the oven control board. This could be a loose connection or a break in the wires.

In either case, it is best to call a qualified technician to diagnose and repair the problem. Trying to fix it yourself could result in further damage to the oven or even injury.
