Question about KitchenAid KGRT607 Gas Kitchen Range
Thank you!!! I was going CRAZY trying to solve this one. I ran the self-clean last night and when I tried to use the oven tonight, it just kept giving me the ERR message. The manual from Kitchen Aide is useless. Thank you SO VERY MUCH!!!!!

The problem is: the temp seems to be 'stuck' at 260 and will not allow any higher settings.
Calling KitchenAid proved to be unuseful. The manual did not have this item in the troubleshooting pages. Resetting the power does not help.
There is really no problem besides that the temp display setting has been somehow set to be celsius (metric system) rather than farhenheit (english system). Changing this setting somehow can be easily touched off without knowing, thus the "I didn't do anything and yesterday it was working fine..." comment from family members.
Reset the temp display back to farhenheit (F). This is done by opening the oven door, then hold down the 'Broil' button until you hear a beep from the control panel. The same method may be used to change from Farhenheit back to Celsius.
I speculate the inavertent change of the temp setting is done while cleaning the flat control panel. So the best thing to do is to always 'LOCK' the control panel when cleaning the controls. This is done by holding down the keypad "3/lock" for a few seconds until the display shows LOCK.
(The solution was already posted when I arrived at this page. I just organized it a bit by adding some details and a preventative comment. Many thanks to those who posted earlier, solving my issue as well. I hope my writing presents a clearer and quicker read to the next person)

SOURCE: model GS563LXSS stays below 260
More than likely the problem is the thermostat is not working properly. This is what tells the control board to turn the heating elements on and off. It is more than likely sending the wrong signal to the control board. The part number for this is 1394200 and costs about $65

replace the oven safety sensor located in the upper left corner of the oven cavity,its merely a thermocouple and cycles the temp in the oven and is easily replaceable,its a whirlpool part # AP3083985 available from most appliance parts stores that handle whirlpool parts,as this unit is produced by whirlpool corp. for kitchenaid corp.
