Question about Amana AOCS3040 Electric Single Oven

1 Answer

Up/Down buttons don't work

Everything seems to work except for the up/down panel buttons, which prevents me from using the oven or setting the clock. I opened up the oven and looked for mechanical issues (i.e. open circuit in the flex-wire), but all seems OK. I turned off-then-on the oven, pressed Cook Time for 5 seconds to get into diagnostic mode, and all other buttons (not the up/down) changed either the display or I heard relay clicks.

Any advice? I'd much prefer not to spend another $1K if I can fix the oven myself. Thank you in advance, o gurus.

Re: Up/Down buttons don't work

This would usually need a keypad replacement. It may come as a whole console or as part of range control board. From what I see in pictures, it appears to be an insert panel that goes into console assembly. Looks to run about 200 dollars. You will need complete model and serial numbers off oven to order correct part. These parts are usually not returnable.

Need to set clock on oven

    • 1

      Check the oven to ensure that it is off and that the timer isn't running. The buttons used to set the clock are the same buttons that adjust the oven, and you may end up making unintended adjustments to the oven.

    • 2

      Press the "Clock" button to enter the clock setting mode. The LCD will show the current time set on the oven.

    • 3

      Use the "Set Temp/Time +" or "Set Temp/Time -" buttons to adjust the clock to the current time. Depending on your model of stove you may need to use the "Hour," "Min" or the "Temp/Hour" up and down arrow buttons to set the time.

    • 4

      Save the new clock setting by pressing the "Start" button. Depending on your stove model, you may need to press the "Clock" button a second time if the "Start" button does not work.

What does the sign "control lock" mean?

Here is what the manual for your oven says about control lock.

Let me know if you have questions.

Control Lock
The Control Lock shuts down the control panel pads to prevent
unintended use of the oven(s). The Control Lock will remain set
after a power failure, if set before the power failure. The only time
it is not available is during the Sabbath Mode or Self-Clean cycle.
When the control is locked, only the TIMER SET · START, TIMER
function. On double oven models, CLOCK SET · START will also
The Control Lock is preset unlocked, but can be locked.
To Lock/Unlock Control: Press and hold CONTROL LOCK for
about 3 seconds, until “CONTROL LOCK” and a picture of a lock
appear on the display. Repeat to unlock and remove “CONTROL
LOCK” from the display.

Kleenmaid Scala Oven. My oven will not turn on.

I had exactly the same problem. I followed the directions to reset the clock. That is the cooking button and finish cooking button. They look like a caserole dish and a casserole dish with a cross through it. Hold them down at the same time and the + and - button to advance the time. Be aware I had to try this a few times before it worked. Hope this helps, Dean

Cannot set time and Oven will not operate

Depending on the make of oven, you have to press the buttons in a certain sequence if it is a digital one, try pressing the buttons in sequence, sometimes you have to press 2 together, and a third one at the same time,if it is a anologue timer, then make sure you can see the symbol of a hand in the display.
If you cannot get the timer of auto, then it is probably faulty.
Please rate my solution.
