Spontaneously in the middle of last night, Kitchenaid KCST307 stove started:
beep a few times
display probe icon, and ask for probe temp
beep a couple more times
display goes dark
repeat until owner wakes up (well, actually, repeat until owner pulls plug)
Cancel did nothing. Tried to turn on Bake, did not stop this.

Re: Controls lost mind -- keeps asking for probe temp
Houston, we have a problem... Your electronic relay control, (ERC), is shot, kaput, no bueno and must be replaced in order to correct your situation.
The ERC part number is 3191106, and retails for ~305.00 dollars! (I kid you not). I guess now is the time you might consider replacement over repair. That's a good question.
If you choose to proceed with the repair, repost and I'll help with details on how to do it.

you have a bad computer board or clock assy. same thing the most common thing that cooks the board is heat and usually from self cleaning the oven,next time send the model number,if this is a slide in stove under the oven door is a drawer,open it and look at the frame,you'll see a tag with model and serial numbers,if that functions by itself you have a bad board.
We had the same problem, and we tricked it into running it's cycle be doing the following;
1. Wrap a wet paper towel around the probe, plug it in, and close the door. Then follow the temp. probe directions in the manual: 2. Set probe temp. at 130 degrees, then select a bake cycle. We selected convect bake. 3. Set oven temp for 275 degrees, but maybe any temp over the probe temp would work. 4. Then start. The cycle took 12 minutes to complete, and when it was finished, turn the oven off and then open the door and unplug the probe. 5. Now everything works fine.
the Controller is asking you to set the probe temp because it thinks the probe is plugged in try to plug in your probe and remove it and see if it goes away if not the probe outlet is bad or if it flashes a code i will need to know that ..also you went into the Factory Version not the Error codes menu an error code would read like a F7 or F2 just an FYI
I had the same problem today (my wife overflowed a pot of chicken stock last night, so there was liquid all over the cook-top, and some probably got down behind the control pannel). Based on the solution to a problem that seemed similar, though definitely not as exact as your description, I checked the probe connection (unscrewed the retaining nut, then unscrewed the two sheet metal screws holding the housing in place, then gave the probe connection a gentle tug to ensure that it was still properly connected). Finding nothing wrong, I replaced the housing and retaining nut, and the lights were no longer flashing.
Most likely oven sensor / probe is the problem. It can be tested with an ohm meter. Not sure about your model, but most should read around 1100 ohms at room temperature. If there's a tech sheet somewhere on your unit, it should tell you.
