The red padlock icon that usually unlocks with the 5 second touch of a finger won't unlock the cooktop.


Have you tried disconnecting the whole cooktop from the main supply for about 5 minutes? Sometimes when reconnected the fault goes away.

Hello, i cannot turn the child lock off on my stovetop. this is a brand new problem as i do know how to normally turn the lock off.


Not sure if this is for your exact model but here is a link to an Online User's Manual for one similar:

http://www.kitchenaid.com/assets/pdfs/product/ZUSECARE/KECC508RPS_Use%20and%20Care_EN.pdf

Just click on the link (underlined and highlighted text) with your mouse and a new browser window will automatically open to show you the information in the manual.

On page 7, it reads as follows:

To Lock Cooktop: Touch and hold the CONTROL LOCK/
ALL OFF keypad for 5 seconds. After 5 seconds, CONTROL
LOCK will glow red, indicating that the cooktop touch controls
are in the lockout position.

To Unlock Cooktop: Touch and hold the CONTROL LOCK/
ALL OFF keypad for 5 seconds.

If you have any questions or require further assistance just comment back to this page and I will endeavour to help.

Good luck and please click on the 4 Thumbs Up rating icon if this was at all helpful.

Thank you very much.

Keys on the oven are not working so I can not start oven bake


Thanks for posting to Fixya I will be helping you today. You have posted that you have a Kenmore Elite 44173 electric cooktop with a problem. However, you also mention your are having trouble with the oven not working. This post maybe categorized wrong but I will try to answer you question for both a range and oven control.

Sometimes on a cooktop customers will lockout the controls on accident while cleaning. Usually there is a button on the control that you hold for 4 seconds +/- and there is a little simbol of a padlock next to it or you might have to check the owners manual.

Lastly, Ranges may also have a lock out feature that the customer must press 4 seconds too unlock. On select models controls may also be locked out by putting their oven into sabbath mode. Usually the display will indicate a "SAB" to alert that this feature has been set.

*In general the above instructions should help if your unit is locked out.

Happy Holidays!

Wolf Induction cooktop is locked in Showroom mode


If Shr (5hr) appears on the display then the cooktop is in showroom mode. To exit showroom mode the cooktop must be locked by pressing and holding the key symbol for 5 seconds. After the cooktop is locked, press and hold the melt touch pad for 5 seconds.
