Reading 5A6

I believe the display you are seeing is s a b or S A b which means sabbath mode, a feature related to Jewish religious requirements about work on the sabbath. Check the owners manual to identify how to turn this mode on or off.

My oven will not come on and is showing the message 5A6. Could you tell me what this might be?

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

It sounds like the unit has been placed in "sabbath" mode somehow, hence the display showing the digital abbreviation for sabbath "5A6".

If you have you owners manual it should instruct you how to disable it, but if you don't have it you will need to confirm the make/brand name is a Maytag and model number and I'll see what I can find.

I'll watch for your reply and if you need anything further I'll be glad to help in any manner I can.

Your range is probably in the Sabbath mode. The error code shown on the display is"Sab", not "5ab" or "5A6.

To disable the Sabbath mode push and hold the Clock pad for 3 seconds

Code 5A6 appears when i tried to change the clock. stovetop works but the oven does not

You inadvertently set your range to "Sabbath Mode". The display actually reads "SAB". This is a feature that allows the consumer to disable certain features of the range in order to honor the sabbath. You cannot defeat it by unplugging the range or turning off the breaker either. You will either have to wait 72 hours for the mode to clear, or figure out how to turn it off.

All ranges differ in design and features. The instructions to turn Sabbath mode on or off differ as well. The instructions will be in your owner's manual.

If you do not have an owner's manual, or do not understand the instructions, please post back with your model number so that I may be able to povide you with better assistance. I hope this helps you.
