Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

That error means that the computer recognized a runaway temperature, another words the oven was getting too hot, this can be caused by two things, the control board or the temperature sensor, commonly the temperature sensor is a fault for this error, its rare for a control board to cause this error, it can but it's rare. The temperature sensor is the probe that is sticking out in the back of the oven wall. You test the temperature sensor with an ohm meter it should read around 1100 ohms at room temps (72 degrees F). If its not in range then its bad and needs to be replaced.
