The error code you're code means that your thermistor sensor is bad. Test resistance of the thermistor. It should be 10,000 ohms at room temperature. If not, then replace the thermistor. If it checks good the main control board will need to be replaced to resolve the issue.

Understood, but unfortunately that doesn't tell you which one is faulty. It's still either a bad thermistor or control board.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open. Is there anything else I can help you with?
