How to Exit the Sabbath Feature
Touch the Clear/Off pad.
If the oven is cooking, wait for a random
delay period of approximately 30
seconds to 1 minute, until only ⊃ is
in the display.
Press and hold both the Bake and Broil
Hi/Lo pads, at the same time, until the
display shows SF.
Tap the Delay Start pad until
12 shdn or no shdn appears in the
display. 12 shdn indicates that the oven
will automatically turn off after 12
hours. no shdn indicates that the oven
will not automatically turn off.
Touch the Start pad.
NOTE: If a power outage occurred while
the oven was in Sabbath, the oven will
automatically turn off and stay off even when
the power returns. The oven control must
be reset.

You need to think of these ovens as electronic devices. If you get this message after a power outage, it is behaving just like your cable box or internet router when they have functional upset from a power outage. Turn the power off to the oven at the electrical box for 10 minutes then turn it back on. The oven should cycle up and then work. Mine did!

Sabb or Sab Explanation for Kitchen Ranges

Here is a useful tip in identifying a frequently reported problem on some model ranges and wall ovens equipped with an Electronic Range Control (ERC) or Electronic Oven Control (EOC). An “error” code display of “Sabb" or “Sab” will be displayed and the range or oven will not function. This is called “Sabbath Mode" and it may be costing you unnecessary charges in service call fees. This is NOT a problem, but actually a feature provided by some manufacturers to enable customers of certain religious faiths to honor the Sabbath. The range will not function at all during this period and cannot be reset by unplugging the unit or turning it off. In your owner/operator's manual there should be a section that refers to "Sabbath Mode" under the control panel features and operation. This "problem" is a minor operator issue and is not a malfunction of the appliance. This is commonly reported by customers to service companies to have corrected, but the repair is unnecessary, and usually NOT covered under the manufacturer’s warranty. The reason: It is a designed feature of the appliance and considered “operator error” in most cases. What this means is you may be paying someone big money to push a couple of buttons and “fix” something that could have taken you minutes to correct yourself. Sabbath Mode can inadvertently be activated by pressing the wrong sequence of control panel buttons, or following a power outage. The procedures for turning Sabbath Mode on/off are referenced in your owner operator manual under operating instructions. Manufacturers provide different procedures for activating and deactivating the mode, so instructions may differ. I hope this helps avoid the need for a service calls in the future and saves you money.

My maytag gemini oven has been stuck in sabbath mode for months and holding the clock button does not help. It does this everytime we lose power and it stays off for months and will turn on when ever it...


This is from the Maytag website it explains how to cancel the sabbath mode;

To cancel the Sabbath Mode:
Press the Clock pad for three seconds.
After 72 hours, the Sabbath Mode will end.
  • "SAb" will flash for five seconds.
  • The time of day will return to the display.
  • Sabbath Mode can be turned on at any time with or without the oven on.
  • Sabbath Mode cannot be turned on if the keypads are locked out or when the door is locked.
  • Most prompts and messages and all beeps are deactivated when Sabbath Mode is active.
  • If the oven is baking when Sabbath Mode is set, the Bake icon will go out at the end of the baking cycle. There will be no audible beeps.
  • If the oven light is desired while in Sabbath Mode, it must be turned on before the Sabbath Mode is started.
  • When the Sabbath Mode is started, the temperature display will immediately show the set temperature, rather than the actual oven cavity temperature. No preheat beep will sound.
  • The self-clean cycle and automatic door lock do not operate during the Sabbath Mode.
  • Pressing the Cancel pad will cancel a Bake cycle, however the control will stay in the Sabbath Mode.
  • If power fails, the oven will power up in Sabbath Mode with 72 hours remaining and no cycle active.

I hope this helps to return it to normal mode,

I cancelled the clean proprocess and then the display shows 5ab and I can't get the oven to work or clock .. anything, no beeping

somehow you put it in sabbath mode,yes sabbath mode,a feature known as "Sabbath mode." According to the Jewish Sabbath law, raw food may not be cooked on the Sabbath, but food that was already cooked beforehand may be kept warm until mealtime. On Jewish holidays, food may be cooked fresh, but turning the flame on poses a problem given electrical requirements forbidden by Sabbath observers.try holding the clck button in for 3 to 5 seconds to take it out of sabbath mode

My Kenmore oven won't work there is a PF 5AB error

The PF on your control indicates a power failure and should be removed by pressing the cancel button. The 5ab code indicates the range is in the SABBATH mode.

If a power failure occurs when the SABBATH mode is set, the oven will return to the OFF mode and will turn the power OFF to the oven.


* Open the oven door
* Press both the HOUR "UP" and "DOWN" arrow pad at the same time - and hold for 5 seconds.
SAB ON will disappear from the display.

To disable SABBATH mode: Repeat the steps above and SAB OFF will appear.

To set the SABBATH mode for use during the SABBATH/Holidays:
* Press BAKE
* Pres TEMP "UP" and "DOWN" Arrow pad to enter a different temperature other than 350 degrees. (Between 170F and 500F)
* Press HOUR/MIN "up" or "down" arrow to set cook time
* Press DELAY START to set a delayed cook time (optional)
* Press and hold TIMER OFF for 5 seconds
SAB will appear on the display indicating it is ready.
* Press START
* To STOP cooking - press STOP/CLEAR
* To exit the SABBATH mode and return to normal operation - press and hold TIMER OFF for 5 seconds.

Oven and clock inop

You might have a problem with the circuit breaker - reset it by pressing the switch ocated on he lower edge of the backguard (in Canadian models). There are several things that could cause the oven not to operate, but generally you would get a message on the display - "Lock", "Sabbath" etc. Just in case your display is damaged and that's why you don't see any message, try to press and hold the "cancel" and "cook and hold" pads for three seconds (to unlock the oven in case it is locked), and then check to see if the oven works. if not, repeat this procedure (to make sure that you didn't lock it just now), and then press and hold the "clock" pad for three seconds (to unlock the oven in case it is in "sabbath mode"). If it still doesn't work, you might need to replace a fuse.
