Open Question

Display locked on 5ab or sa6? Can't use oven, no buttons functional.

While setting timer, kids pressed too many buttons, delay, etc. Then the display locked and no buttons work. I would unplug oven to reset, but it's very tightly wedged into space. Any ideas?

SOURCE: clear code

This is a frequently reported problem on some model ranges and wall ovens equipped with an Electronic Range Control (ERC) or Electronic Oven Control (EOC). An “error” code display of “Sabb" or “Sab” will be displayed and the range or oven will not function. This is called “Sabbath Mode" and it may be costing you unnecessary charges in service call fees. This is NOT a problem, but actually a feature provided by some manufacturers to enable customers of certain religious faiths to honor the Sabbath. The range will not function at all during this period and cannot be reset by unplugging the unit or turning it off. In your owner/operator's manual there should be a section that refers to "Sabbath Mode" under the control panel features and operation. This "problem" is a minor operator issue and is not a malfunction of the appliance. This is commonly reported by customers to service companies to have corrected, but the repair is unnecessary, and usually NOT covered under the manufacturer’s warranty. The reason: It is a designed feature of the appliance and considered “operator error” in most cases. What this means is you may be paying someone big money to push a couple of buttons and “fix” something that could have taken you minutes to correct yourself. Sabbath Mode can inadvertently be activated by pressing the wrong sequence of control panel buttons, kids playing with the control panel and also after a power outage. The “problem” can be cleared, but you will have to find the proper reference in your owner operator manual. Manufacturers provide different procedures for activating and deactivating the mode, so instructions may differ. I hope this helps you.

I just went through the same problem. The conrol board had to be replaced. Mine was under warranty, but it took them 3-4 months to find the right part. If you find it online, it looked pretty easy to get to it and replace it. 4-5 wire connectors to switch over.

How to clear or reset SA6 code on digital display? none of the button function works.


SAB (which is probably the display message) means that the range is in Sabbath mode. The unit believes that you want the range to maintain whatever the previous settings were for the next 24-36 hours. (This is useful for those who do no work on the Sabbath but wish to keep a dish hot in a low oven for the period.)

Providing the model number would be more helpful than the serial number. The manual for the range will explain how to toggle on and off the Sabbath mode. Since you don't give your range's manufacturer and model number, I can't be sure how to disable the mode. However, on some models, press and hold the Timed oven "Cook Time" and "Delay start" buttons. For some Maytag ovens, just press and hold the Clock key.

I hope this helps.

3. Press TEMP/TIME "+" or "-" arrow pads to set the time of day, including a.m. or p.m.

The Timer can be set in hours or minutes up to 12 hours and 59 minutes.

1. Press TIMER.
2. Press TEMP/TIME "+" or "-" arrow pads to set the length of time.
3. Press START to begin the countdown. If enabled, end-of-cycle tones will sound at end of countdown.
4. Press TIMER twice to cancel the Timer. Do not press the CANCEL/OFF keypad because the oven will turn off.
5. If the TIMER is running, but not in the display, press TIMER to display the countdown for 5 seconds

Delay Start:
The Start Time keypad is used to enter the starting time for an oven function with a delayed start.

Hope this answers all you questions about your stove.

What does 5ab mean on the oven?


Some ranges with a lot of features have a Sabbath mode, hence the letters Sab in the display although it looks like 5ab. Check your owners manual and it should tell you how to turn off the Sabbath mode. If you don't have a manual Google your model number and Sabbath mode.

I AM GETTING A ERROR CODE ON MY STOVE SAB OR SA6 HOWEVER NONE OF THE BUTTONS WORK


This is the Sabbath feature on my Kenmore Elite Electric Slide in Range. My oven manual says to press both the (timed oven) "cook time" button and the "delay start" button at the same time for approx. 3 seconds and this should shut down the feature. I had the same problem, tried the above and it worked.

My Kenmore oven won't work there is a PF 5AB error


The PF on your control indicates a power failure and should be removed by pressing the cancel button. The 5ab code indicates the range is in the SABBATH mode.

If a power failure occurs when the SABBATH mode is set, the oven will return to the OFF mode and will turn the power OFF to the oven.

To ENABLE SABBATH mode:

* Open the oven door
* Press STOP/CLEAR
* Press both the HOUR "UP" and "DOWN" arrow pad at the same time - and hold for 5 seconds.
SAB ON will disappear from the display.

To disable SABBATH mode: Repeat the steps above and SAB OFF will appear.



To set the SABBATH mode for use during the SABBATH/Holidays:
* Press BAKE
* Pres TEMP "UP" and "DOWN" Arrow pad to enter a different temperature other than 350 degrees. (Between 170F and 500F)
* Press COOK TIME
* Press HOUR/MIN "up" or "down" arrow to set cook time
* Press DELAY START to set a delayed cook time (optional)
* Press and hold TIMER OFF for 5 seconds
SAB will appear on the display indicating it is ready.
* Press START
* To STOP cooking - press STOP/CLEAR
* To exit the SABBATH mode and return to normal operation - press and hold TIMER OFF for 5 seconds.

My gas range display changed to "5Ab" and does not work anymore.


You are set to Sabbath mode.
Try holding the clock button in for 5 seconds and that may correct it.

Oven and clock inop


You might have a problem with the circuit breaker - reset it by pressing the switch ocated on he lower edge of the backguard (in Canadian models). There are several things that could cause the oven not to operate, but generally you would get a message on the display - "Lock", "Sabbath" etc. Just in case your display is damaged and that's why you don't see any message, try to press and hold the "cancel" and "cook and hold" pads for three seconds (to unlock the oven in case it is locked), and then check to see if the oven works. if not, repeat this procedure (to make sure that you didn't lock it just now), and then press and hold the "clock" pad for three seconds (to unlock the oven in case it is in "sabbath mode"). If it still doesn't work, you might need to replace a fuse.
