Error 40 on kenmore convection oven

The 40 error code indicates a failure of the cooktop lockout board. The cooktop lockout board is not communicating with the main EOC electronic oven control. This could be a loose wiring harness or either the EOC board or cooktop lockout board is faulty. This type of diagnosis will require using a volt/ohm meter. If you decide to check the harness to the boards you will need to remove the back panel for access.

Electrolux oven wont work after cleaning

Hi ja1078063,

I understand you having trouble getting your oven to work after using the self-cleaning mode. Does any part of the oven work? Confirm a fuse is not blown or a circuit breaker tripped. Test the power outlet with a lamp, hair dryer, etc.
Does "Loc" appear in the display if any button is pushed?
The Oven Lockout feature automatically locks the oven door, prevents most oven controls from being turned ON. Press and hold CLEAR/OFF for 3 seconds. A beep will sound. LOC will clear. The "DOOR LOCKED" will continue to flash until the oven door has completely unlocked.

Best Regards,

F4 code is displayed and oven beeps continuously

Hello Duane, I am happy to assist you. Typically, error code F4 indicates a lockout error. Try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. This usually clears most false error codes. Wait approximately ten minutes and if the error code does not clear, I would recommend contacting a professional to proceed further. Most likely the EOC (electronic oven control) or the Lockout Control Board on the appliance will need replacing.

Electric range surface elements not working after self clean cycle.

It sounds like it is broken. You can bypass it by connecting the 2 wires together. This should be fine until you replace it. They aren't that expensive.

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.

Oven lockout on oven wont do anything

What is the model number of the unit? Look on the inside of the oven door for it. When you say "lockout" do you mean the door lock is on or is there a light on the control panel displaying a lock?

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.

My oven on the fridgedare PLEF398d will not work, but everything else does.what is the problem?

If your oven has a lockout feature, check to see if it's been selected. If so, it will prevent you from using the oven.
