Re: unable to use oven

Arkist, sounds like you are in the sabbath mode. Press and hold the clock pad for 3 to 5 seconds. See if it comes back to back.

Tim in Texas: I got the 5Ab on my Matag Built in Range (Bought 12/06) Model MEW5527DDB. This solved the problem. Thanks!

I have a Kenmore Elite double oven, model 790.48123801.(4 years old). My wife attempted to operate the self-cleaning feature and 29 seconds later an F90 error message appeared, the oven began to beep

Oven door latch error code. The oven door latched but the control board did not receive a signal that the door was latched.
The only time that the latch is used is during the cleaning cycle.

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.


* Open the oven door
* 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 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.

5Ab error code for a Maytag Electric Range

You may have 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.

To turn the Sabbath Mode on/off on most Maytag models you simply press and hold the "Clock" button for 5 seconds. These instructions should be in your owner's manual.

If this does not correct the problem for you, please post back with your model number (located on the back of the range or around the oven door opening) so that I may be able to assist you better. I hope this helps you.

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.
