err is a clock error and means the clock assembly is bad. usually the codes for this are F codes such as
F0 and F1 Failed Thermistor Control Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC)
F2Oven temp exceeds 590 w/ unlocked doorHigh resistance or interference in oven temperature sensor, replace sensor
F3Open oven temperature sensor circuit Replace oven temperature sensor or, check for an open oven temperature sensor fuse, replace fuse.
F4Shorted wire (oven temperature sensor) Locate and correct
F7A = Function pad button stuck or
B = Bad clock
Unstick button or replace Electronic Range Control (ERC) clock assembly
F8 Component FailureReplace Electronic Range Control (ERC)
F9Program w/ door circuit Check wiring but since yours is comming up
since your is comming up ERR its the clock itself that needs to be replaced. hope this help, thanks Bryan
