I think ERR2 just means it's not getting to temp soon enough.
- Bad connections to the heating element (so it's not getting hot at all) was the problem for the original poster 5 years ago.
- It's frequently bad connections to the factory temp probe, ie it doesn't know it's getting hot. Some have fixed that issue by tweaking the probe connections. What is the controller reading for temp? If it's lower than actual, there's the issue.
- But sometimes you're just not getting to temp quickly enough, partic if you have a lot of meat or cookwear soaking up the thermal energy. (And it is starting to get chilly!) In which case some folks recommend blowing a hair dryer or heat gun at the probe so it thinks things are warmer than they really are.
