I don't like to be the bearer of bad news but the error code you are receiving is for a defective clock/control. If turning off the breaker to the oven and turning it back on does not reset the control, it needs replaced. If the parts are no longer available than that's even worse.

This is a general code for control failure. If you have anymore questions please feel free to ask.

Thanks for using!
