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 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: . The child lock feature is described in the Operating Instructions. For the ATF6000ES0, the direct link to the appropriate manual is . See page 2 under Washer Features.

I hope this helps.

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.

    "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.

    Kenmore electric dryer--model 41784092500. When I press the Pause or Start button, all the lights flash and then it reads ''err'' and ''loc''. What does ''loc'' mean. Sears will not tell me. They want to...

    LOC means it thinks the control panel is locked.
    This gives the ERR indication when you push the buttons.
    To unlock it you need to hold down the Options and Select buttons together until it reacts.

    Kenmore elite 790.3670 oven door locked

    I held down the clear button for three seconds, it unlocked but still showed the lock button lit. It began beeping over and over. I opened the door and pressed the clear button again for three seconds. It stopped and the oven works just fine now. In fact, I used it right after I got it cleared out.
