Are you selecting the same interface that you are connecting to the network with?

First I select wlan0. which is what I am on. When I click my interference it shuts down my network manager and fern says: A problem occurred while setting up this mode of interference.

You are using the wireless device that you're telling fern to use.... You need to use a separate device if you want to maintain networking as well as do the attacks. This is expected behavior that it would kill NM, since you're selecting the device you're using.

Why it's throwing the error is a bit more difficult to find out, and you'd likely need to run sudo fern-wifi-cracker from terminal to get actual output to debug it.
