Why does my Kenmore electric oven model 911.4238816 beep F2 every 4 hours and will not heat?

In your prior answer you said the model no. looks slightly off. 911.4238816 is the number on the metal tab affixed to this double oven.
The sales slip from Mar 14, 1990 says
802.42389; and the maintenance agreement certificate says model number 850.42378.
The top oven doesn't heat; the broiler doesn't broil.
Where I live, the Edison electric power has gone out twice in the last two weeks. Each time, the F2 started flashing and beeping (the oven was not heating before these power outs-- but it beeped F2 intermittently).

The only model number that you submitted that comes closest to a valid model is 911.4238896. The other two models are not even close to a valid model. The F2 fault code for 911 source ranges still indicates one of the following failures listed below.

The F2 in this model of oven indicates that the electronic oven control board detects one of the following problems:

Oven over-temperature condition NOTE: Oven temperature is detected through the resistance of the temperature sensor probe in the oven.

High oven temperature sensor circuit resistance

Door lock thermal protection trip

Door lock switches 1 and 2 both closed at the same time

A technician will normally need to diagnose and repair this type of problem. If you are able to disconnect electrical power to the oven and change the oven temperature sensor probe, you may be able to fix the problem yourself. Taking this chance may pay off.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details. NOTE: Your model number looks slightly off and the other two model numbers are not valid as well. This answer is based on the closest valid model number to the one that you submitted (911.4238896).

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your wall oven.
