Question about Whirlpool GR399LXHS Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Display reads "Loc" and a lock icon is lit-up.

My display reads "Loc," a lock-icon is lit-up, and if I press any buttons, the display flashes "start?" My stovetop burners are working, my clock is working, but I cannot cancel out of the "Loc screen" and it has rendered my oven unusable. Tried tripping my electrical fuse box but even cutting the power did not reset it.

Mahalo ("thank you" in Hawaiian) in advance for your help and response!

    Thank you for your response!



    I was able to find and download my Owner's Manual: the solution was to hold down the start-button for 5 seconds.



    After doing so, my display went back to normal & my oven worked again.



    (Apparently, holding the start-button for 5 seconds locks and unlocks one's ability to use the oven -- it's a "safety" feature.)

MY OVEN WON'T HEAT


Hello - Does any part of the range work? I would recommend verifying that a fuse is not blown or a circuit breaker tripped. Test the power outlet with a lamp, hair dryer, etc. Another questions, does "Loc" appear in the display if any button is pushed? The Oven Lockout feature automatically locks the oven door, prevents the warmer drawer and most oven controls from being turned ON. If so, press and hold CLEAR/OFF for 3 seconds. A beep will sound. LOC will clear. The "DOOR LOCKED" will continue to flash until the oven door has completely unlocked. Does the clock display "Sd" or "dddd"? If so, the clock is in sales demo mode. Press and hold the "BAKE TIME" button for 6 seconds to exit sales demo mode. If this does not prove to be successful, contact a professional to have EOC diagnosed and/or to confirm that there isn't a wiring failur

My frigidaire front load washer will not start. anytime I push a button on the front panel the "LOL" sign flashes. on the front of the washer panel d wash rinse final spin control lights are...


Is the message "LOL" or "LOC"? I suspect the child lock "LOC" has been activated. To toggle this off, press and hold Options and Select for 10+ seconds. This feature prevents someone from accidently starting or changing a cycle selection.

There is a small padlock icon in the middle of lines linking the two buttons that let you toggle the child lock on and off.

There are two Frigidaire washers with the model ATF6000ES (the S is followed by a 0 or a 1). The manuals for both are available here: http://www.frigidaire.com/manuals?model=ATF6000ES . The child lock feature is described in the Operating Instructions. For the ATF6000ES0, the direct link to the appropriate manual is http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodinfo_pdf/Webster/134604400.pdf . See page 2 under Washer Features.

I hope this helps.

My oven/stovetop isn't turning on, and it says "LOC" on the screen. Its like the stove won't ignite. What should I do?


To lock/unlock the controls: Turn all surface burners off.

Touch and hold the GAS/CONTROL LOCKOUT pad for 3 seconds until the display shows LOC.

To unlock the control, touch and hold the GAS/CONTROL LOCKOUT pad for 3 seconds until LOC disappears from the display.

How do you unlock a kenmore elite cooktop?


You can do this by:
Check the oven display to see whether the screen says "LOC." When "LOC" is displayed, the oven lock is activated and the door cannot be opened. You need to make sure it is locked so you do not mistakenly lock the door.

  • 2 Press and hold the "Stop" button on the oven control panel until "LOC" disappears from the display. Some oven models have a button marked "Oven Lock," which should be used instead of the "Stop" button.
  • Lock the oven again by pressing and holding the "Stop" or "Oven Lock" button until "LOC" appears in the display

    Push any button and 'loc' flashes seems to be locked out


    Press Options and Select at the same time and hold for 10 seconds or until "LOC" is no longer displayed to unlock the controls. Press and hold the same buttons for 10 seconds until "LOC" is displayed alternately with the estimated cycle time to lock the controls. Unplug the machine for at least half an hour, if pressing the buttons does unlock the controls, to forcibly reset the machine control and eliminate the possibility of an electronic glitch.

    The LOC flahes on my display, it allows me to pick a cycle but i can not start it. Please help, i tried to press options and select at the same time for the LOC to stop flashing...is there anything else...


    Hi,

    "LOC" indicates that the control panel settings are locked. Press the SELECT and OPTION button simultaneously to toggle this 'feature' on or off. This will fix the issue.

    Thank you !!
