I sometimes get into this situation with 2nd octave f and/or f# when my reed and instrument mismatch impedance. Different proportion of tip length to heart size, and back scrape usually avoid the situation. Try different reed with different tube and/or length... assuming your scraping is consistent. Also assuming your oboe is in good mechanical condition (no leaks, proper adjustment ...etc). Change the impedance characteristics of your reed.

Adjusting reed is much easier than changing the oboe tube and holes.
