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

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

What does 5AB mean on clock?


Your display is actually reading "SAB". This is an indication of a mode of operation rather than an error code. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608491-sabb_or_sab_explanation_kitchen_ranges

Sabbath Mode is a feature that allows the consumer to disable certain features of the range in order to honor the sabbath. Usually this disables the oven, but allows the consumer to still use the surface burners. 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.

Somewhere in the owner/operator's manual is a section that refers to "Sabbath Mode". Since all ranges differ in features and operator, you need to refer to the operation section of your owner's manual to find out how to shut the feature off.

If the model number you listed this question under is correct, you need to press and hold the CLOCK button for 3 seconds to clear the Sabbath Mode. "Sab" will flash for about 5 seconds, then return to normal display.

What is the advantage of gas range than gas stove?


There is much confusion about those terms, especially when used by suppliers / online webshops. A great indepth article about the issue can be found here: http://www.ebay.com/gds/What-s-the-Difference-Between-a-Stove-and-Range-/10000000177628290/g.html

Below is - imho - the most related paragraph:

'Many people use the terms oven, stove, and range interchangeably. However, buyers that plan to purchase a stove or a range should understand the purported meanings of each of these common words. First, the term stove technically refers only to the stovetop, which includes a number of burners (typically four to six) and is used for surface cooking such as boiling, frying, pan-searing, and other methods. The oven is an enclosed device that is used for baking, broiling, roasting, and other cooking methods. It employs concentrated heat within the enclosed area, which is usually delivered via heated coils in the top and the bottom of the stove. The term "range," as defined in Webster's Dictionary, actually refers to the combination of stovetop and oven into one kitchen appliance.'

Hope this helps :)

Why won't my oven let me set the temperature after a power failure?


Good Morning Annette,

I see that you are having trouble with setting the temperature of your oven on your range, model# FGB24S5A, after a power failure. I also see that you have reset your appliance by unplugging it and are receiving an error message of SAG or 5AB. I have looked into the model number that you have listed and it shows as a wall oven. I also do not show either of those error codes you have shown. If you can please get me the model number off your range, so I can better assist. The model number will either be right inside the oven on the back of the door or it may be located inside the bottom drawer. Looking forward to hearing from you.

I tried to change time on range but now reads 5Ab. stove top burners turn on but not oven


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. Usually this disables the oven, but allows the consumer to still use the surface burners. 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 for the Maytag model you have listed, you simply press and hold the "Clock" button for 5 seconds. These instructions should be in your owner's manual.

If these instructions do not work for you, or if your model number is different than what you posted this question under, please post back with your correct information. I hope this helps you.
