okay got your info ,let me see what i can find out for you. thanks Bryan
Expert:  Bryan replied 8 years ago.
okay this is what i have so far on this model. I was checking to see if this erc could be adjusted but it cant on this model. I know you ohmed out the probe but that test isnt really acurate. I believe the probe is the culprit in this. if the probe isnt the problem the only other thing it could be is the erc(electronic range control orotherwise known as the clock aseembly) the probe is defifinatly the way to go first. the erc is expensive and most of the time its the probe anyway. hope this helps , Bryan
