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 Electrolux double oven has locked down with food in the oven. How can we get the door to release


My oven does that when the self-clean button has been pressed. Try pushing any sort of power-off buttons or pushing any buttons that are lit up in attempt to turn them off. Older ovens have a lever you have to slide to lock and unlock the oven door.

CONTROL PANEL FOR OVEN NOT WORKING AT ALL


Hi - I understand that the burners work, however 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 question, 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. Then a beep will sound and 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, confirm that there isn't a wiring failure or a faulty element.

Amana Oven Door won't open. Latch to lock it is broken.


After pressing Self Clean, Adjusting the Time and Pressing Start, the self cleaning cycle shows the # F57_ on the read-out. I tried to cancel and now the door opens, but I can't get the Bake to begin when I press Start. No matter what I press LOC flashes on and off, but the door is unlocked and the heat is off.
Please help!

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

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.
