Replace Electronic Range Control/Clock (ERC)

BotXXXXX XXXXXne, you have to replace the ERC. The best place to get it would be at a Sears parts store. Give them the model # XXXXX and part name "electronic range control/clock".

how many times are you getting paid? it seems like I've pressed the green button several times? Is the ERC something that is easy to replace by a non professional?
JustAnswer indicates that we have not been paid.
Pressing the green ACCEPT button once now should create one payment. Pressing the ACCEPT button more than once within a thread "our Q&A session" will still only create one payment, that's all that's allowed per Q&A session even if we go back and forth 10 times. Unless the ACCEPT button works I won't get credit for helping you.

This repair would be considered within the ability of the average home handyman/woman.
You would be the best judge of your capabilities.
