Stuck or defective button on the key panel

Check/Repair

Push the Clear/OFF pad. Shut off power to the oven, disconnect the flat ribbon connector from the electronic oven control board and then restore electrical power. If the code reappears after about 30 seconds, replace the electronic oven control board. If the code doesn't reappear, replace the key panel.

Possible parts

Over-temperature condition detected

Check/Repair

If the oven actually overheated, the electronic oven 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. Disconnect power to the oven and measure the oven temperature sensor resistance using a volt/ohm meter. If the resistance isn't 1100 ohms at 72 degrees F, replace the oven temperature sensor. If the resistance is correct, replace the electronic control board.
