    although theres no number pad, there should be some sorta print on the console marked "control lock" , perhaps your door "locked" in self clean mode?? are you able to open oven door?? if so if you could post model and manufacture i could help you further with that information

The display shows "Loc" and the oven will not work. It earlier displayed E1 F5 and the door would not unlock. I unplugged the stove and plugged it back in, and the door openned. Now it displays "Loc" and...


sounds like the control panel may be locked, look for an icon that looks like a small padlock, push and hold it until the loc goes away, it says 3 seconds but 5-8 is more realistic. I hope this hepls

Whirlpool gold accubake system in loc mode cant get it off the ..


daddysgirl,  You do not indicate the model number or the age of the stove.  Early model self clean stoves used a 'oven lock door handle.'  Later model stoves do not use such a handle but is electronic. I believe this is the one that you own.  You also don't indicate it the door is indeed "LOCKED" or does the console just says that it is locked. If you press START... does the oven actually come on and heat to desired temperature?  If not... I believe that you have a touchpad control problem.  You can unplug your stove from the wall or turn off the stove's 220VAC 50 amp circuit breaker located in your main electrical panel. If possible leave off over nite and then reapply power the next morning.  If you still have the same oven contol problems, then you will have to replace your oven Electronic Control Module (ECM).  It sounds like the "touchpad" portion is defected but unfortunately it usually comes as a part of the ECM.  The oven ECM is very expensive ($150-275. retail) plus labor to install.  Hopes this helps you!  HandyHenry

Oven door locked and dead panel


TRY UNPLUGGIN THE RANGE FOR FIVE MINUTES AND THEN PLUGGING IT BACK IN. IF IT DOESN'T RESET AND UNLOCK, YOU COULD HAVE EITHER A BAD OVEN SENSOR OR BAD CONTROL(CLOCK). IF YOU ARE A DO IT YOURSELFER, YOU COULD BUY A NEW OVEN SENSOR, REMOVE THE BACK PANEL FROM THE RANGE(THE LARGER LOWER PANEL) FIND THE SMALL CONNECTOR PLUG THAT COMES THROUGH THE BACK WALL. IT HAS ONLY TWO WIRES ATTACHED TO IT. DISCONNECT THE OLD SENSOR AT THAT POINT AND CONNECT THE NEW SENSOR. IF THE OLD SENSOR IS BAD, THE DOOR WILL UNLOCK AND YOU CAN THEN REPLACE THE BAD SENSOR
THROUGH THE OVEN OPENING.

Unlocking Oven controls


According to the manufacturer's website you should only need to Press and hold the "Lock" key for 5 seconds. A single tone will sound and the "Loc" will disappear off the display.

This is the link to Whilpool's website and to the manual.
