This is an error for an open tempt urge sensor. It is either a defective sensor or board. Do you have an ohmmeter to measure the resistance of the sensor?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Expert:  Jason replied 5 years ago.
OK. The sensor should measure 1100 ohms at room temp. If it does not replace the sensor, if it does replace the control. It looks as thought the sensor cable removed from inside the oven. Be careful pulling it out, sometimes you can unplug them if you pull to hard and if that happens you will have to pull the oven out of the wall to retrieve the plug. Let me know what you find.

oven is in use at this time, do i wait until the oven is cool?

Expert:  Jason replied 5 years ago.
Yes. You will have to wait a couple of hours for it to get to room temp. Once you do, perform the test and find the defective part. Once you do, you can go to sears parts, enter your model, and order the part. The control board is the clock behind the front control panel.
