I suspect the error code you are experiencing is actually "SAB". This indicates that your range has been inadvertently set for "Sabbath Mode". The following link explains:

There should be a section in your owner's manual that references Sabbath Mode. If you do not have an owner's manual, please post back with your Brand name and Model number and I'll see if I can locate one.

NOTE: Unplugging the range, or turning off the circuit breaker will not correct this. Your appliance will remain locked for 48 to 72 hours.

If you have questions, please let me know. The good news (I hope) is that there is nothing wrong with the appliance other than figuring out the operator controls.

SOURCE: getting error code on amana oven 5A6 or 5Ab what

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.


If you can't find this information, or no longer have an owner's manual, please post back and let me know. Please include your MODEL NUMBER ( if different from the one you posted this question under) when posting questions, so that we may be able to provide yo with better service. I hope this helps you.

Tip

My oven displays error code 5AB


Hi.

I am publishing this tip because of the many users asking me about the code 5AB on Amana, Maytag and other ovens.

Error 5AB in fact does not exist , and what you see written on display isnot 5AB.

The beeping sound is a warning because the oven is in lock condition. The oven is not faulty, and the code is not 5AB, but SAB.

SAB means that the oven is in Sabbath mode, and the control board will be locked for 72 hours with SAB on display.

If power is disconnected a new 72 hours cycle will start.

Depending on the model, there may also be a beeping sound when you try to operate the oven.

Push and hold the Clock button for about 10 seconds, until the display clears, that will reset SAB mode.

If that does not work leave the oven connected and off for 72 hours. If the oven does not unlock after three days, then the electronic control may be stuck in SAB mode because it is faulty, in that case contact the manufacturer at the number listed on the owners manual.

Regards.
