Hi...Your problem will either be with the sensor or the computer....I would first test the sensor with a meter...It should read 1000-1100 ohms at room temp...more than likely it will be a bad sensor....Bob

I don't have a meter, do you think there is any way to bypass the code just for today so we can use the oven.
Expert:  Bob L Your Appl Pal replied 7 years ago.

There is no way unfortunately ...The sensor controls the temp in the oven...If it is not the sensor then the computer is faulty....The only way to tell is to test it or replace it...
