You have inadvertently set your range to "Sabbath Mode". The display actually reads "SAB". This is a feature that allows the consumer to disable certain features of the range in order to honor the sabbath. You cannot defeat it by unplugging the range or turning off the breaker either. You will either have to wait 72 hours for the mode to clear, or figure out how to turn it off.

To turn the Sabbath Mode on/off on most Majic Chef models you simply press and hold the "Clock" button for 5 seconds. These instructions should be in your owner's manual.

If this does not correct the problem for you, please post back with your model number (located on the back of the range or around the oven door opening) so that I may be able to assist you better. I hope this helps you.

The digital display for a Magic Chef gas oven reads "5 A6", what does that mean?


Your range is probably in the Sabbath mode. The error code shown on the display is"Sab", not "5ab".

To disable the Sabbath mode push and hold the Clock pad for 3 seconds.

No power to Magic Chef Electric oven


I'm not familiar with this oven, but it ought to have protection against this kind of exciting burn-out.
This could be a fuse: find it and replace it, or it could be a circuit breaker: look for a reset button.
As I said, I don't know this oven; this attempt to help is based on the general idea that it ought to have some built in protection.

Readout is stuck on 5Ab. Can't do anything with it


Hi.

I am publishing this tip because of the many users asking me about the code 5AB on Amana, Maytag and other ovens.

Error 5AB in fact does not exist , and what you see written on display isnot 5AB.

The beeping sound is a warning because the oven is in lock condition. The oven is not faulty, and the code is not 5AB, but SAB.

SAB means that the oven is in Sabbath mode, and the control board will be locked for 72 hours with SAB on display.

If power is disconnected a new 72 hours cycle will start.

Depending on the model, there may also be a beeping sound when you try to operate the oven.

Push and hold the Clock button for about 10 seconds, until the display clears, that will reset SAB mode.

If that does not work leave the oven connected and off for 72 hours. If the oven does not unlock after three days, then the electronic control may be stuck in SAB mode because it is faulty, in that case contact the manufacturer at the number listed on the owners manual.

Regards.

Magic chef touch pad doesnt work


I don't have Magic chef, however, I would try hitting cancel, unplugging the microwave and waiting a few minutes, then plugging it back in to reset it. Alternatively, you could go to your manual under troubleshoooting. I wish that I could help you more with this. Good luck to you. Please let me know if you figure this one out.

Have a magic chef oven, f1 display after self cleaning, stove top works fine, any thoughts


F-1 is a fault code.


Disconnect the power plug or turn range power off at circuit breaker. Wait a couple of minutes, then plug the range in or flip the range circuit breaker to ON.


Oven control beeps & displays any F  code error (for example 
F11) - Electronic control has detected a fault condition. Press 
CLEAR/OFF to clear the display & stop beeping. Reprogram 
oven. If fault recurs, record fault number. Press CLEAR/OFF
contact an authorized service agent.

Erroe code 5ab


According to the manual, this mode is SAB and not 5AB. SAB stands for sabath mode and lasts for 72 hours. The mode may be canceled by holding in the clock button for 3 seconds. This mode was activated by holding in the clock button for 3 seconds. My wife did the same thing when resetting the clock for daylight savings time this year. Resetting the power does not reset SAB mode.
