Re: "loc" display

This just happened to me. I have whirlpool double oven accubake. The display went blank and i had to turn the breaker off. I left it off for several hours. When I turned the breaker back on my oven display read "Loc" in big letters to the right of the time. I held the start button down for 5 secs. The display went away and the oven started to work as if nothing had happened. I hope that is stays that way.

The loc on light comes on when i push any button on my stove i do not know how to get it off

The LOC light indicates the front panel lock is on. This keeps you from starting the oven when cleaning the panel; it also keeps children from turning on the oven. To disable the lock, press and hold Bake and Broil Hi/Lo together for 2+ seconds until SF appears on the display. Then press Self Clean. Then press Start to exit the Special Functions menu.

GE appliance manuals are available from their site. Go to and enter the model number of the appliance. Then click Search.

I hope this helps.

My oven/stovetop isn't turning on, and it says "LOC" on the screen. Its like the stove won't ignite. What should I do?

To lock/unlock the controls: Turn all surface burners off.

Touch and hold the GAS/CONTROL LOCKOUT pad for 3 seconds until the display shows LOC.

To unlock the control, touch and hold the GAS/CONTROL LOCKOUT pad for 3 seconds until LOC disappears from the display.

The display shows LOC - but the door is open - cant turn on the oven

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
After reading your question the problem seems to be with the control which got locked. To unlock the controls press and hold the STOP/OVEN LOCK button for 20 seconds. If the problem returns then check the door and make sure it is fine, after this you can unplug the unit for 15 minutes and then try to reset it again. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Used the self cleaning cycle 24 hrs. ago, but the oven door will not unlock. We tried to run it through another clean cycle but we recieve an E1 error.

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.
you may have done a panel lock, so try the first solution.

To Lock/Unlock Control: Before locking, make sure the ovens, Timer and Timed Cooking are off. Press and hold START/ENTER until a single tone sounds and "Loc," a picture of a lock and "START?" will appear on the oven display, about 5 seconds. Repeat to unlock and remove "Loc" from display.

To Stop Self-Clean any time:
Press UPPER OFF, LOWER OFF or OFF/CANCEL. If the oven temperature is too high, the door will remain locked. It will not unlock until the oven cools.

Ican't turn the oven on. When I press "Bake" it goes to LOC and then turns itself off. I should be able to adust the temperature (+ or -), then press start.


If it is a GE oven then you can try and reset the LOC error by pressing 9 and the 0 simultaneously for 5 seconds or until the LOC disappears. Alternatively you can try pressing the "Oven Lockout" or "Range Lockout" button on the control panel and then the "Start" button. Hope this helps... Please post back with make and model# of your Oven if you need more information.

Display says loc

The LOC is for the buttons, it's a safety feature. One of the buttons should say "lock" or something next to it in small text. Hold the button down until the indicator goes off. If this does not solve the problem how about a make and model or something to help us out??!!

Digital oven will not turn on, I press bake/broil it reads ''Loc''

Look on the control panel for an icon that looks like a padlock near one of the buttons. Hold that button down until it beeps and that should unlock the panel.
