    The controls are very location sensitive.  Try taking all the knobs off again and moving the glass slightly whilst checking whether all the controls work.  Once you find that location hold the glass in place and replace the bushings and then the knobs.

My Kenmore electric oven/stove has been stuck on lock and beeping non-stop for the past few days. Neither the oven nor the stove was working.

Our solution: Unplug, wait a few seconds, then re-plug it in. While it's starting up again, press & hold the Stop/Clear button. Everything should clear up!

Hope that works!

On my panel the 9 and 0 buttons held simultaneously for 3 seconds will toggle between lock and unlock. If you accidently lean on the display you can lock it without realizing what you did. If you lock it by mistake simply push and hold the 9 and 0 buttons together for 3 seconds and it will unlock. I guess this a child lockout function but I have long lost my manual.

Solution 3 worked but it took unplugging and waiting twice to get it to work. The first unplug and wait got the door to open. The second unplug and wait got the LOC to go away. However, I would not attempt to run the self-cleaning again because that's what caused the problem in the first place.

How do I increase the intensity of the green in the display on my Sharp Carousel R-1460A microwave oven?


This model does not have a brightness adjustment for the VFD display.

It may be a weak VFD tube due to aging or it may be that the rear of the display window and front of the display glass are very dusty.

Sometimes you can clean it inside to brighten it up.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then you can detach the keypad connector (as per attached photo) then remove the control panel screws.

Be careful not to crack the glass display when handling it, or it's a goner.

Then you can use a soft cloth (not a paper towel) and a mild cleaner (not ammonia-based) to clean the front surface of the VFD display glass and the rear side of the clear bezel (display window) that's attached to the keypad.

Some connectors have a lock.

positivelock.jpgIf that cleaning didn't help, then you have a weak VFD.

We can replace yours for $74.95. Details are here.

How do you unlock a kenmore elite cooktop?


You can do this by:
Check the oven display to see whether the screen says "LOC." When "LOC" is displayed, the oven lock is activated and the door cannot be opened. You need to make sure it is locked so you do not mistakenly lock the door.

  • 2 Press and hold the "Stop" button on the oven control panel until "LOC" disappears from the display. Some oven models have a button marked "Oven Lock," which should be used instead of the "Stop" button.
  • Lock the oven again by pressing and holding the "Stop" or "Oven Lock" button until "LOC" appears in the display

    Flashing bake and probe indication on GE JD968S


    I found the Mini-manual inside the control panel area of the range. I followed the instructions for resetting the control. Instructions are shown below:

    Glass touch models only- Lock Reference Command
    When the control panel is accessed, the signals used by glass touch panel may be adversely affected. To compensate for this change in signals, the following procedure must be followed every time the control panel is accessed.
    1. Make sure power to the range is turned off.
    2. Completely close the range control panel and return range to it's normal installation.
    3. Apply power to the range.

    Accessing the the control panel area but not replacing the control.
    4. Enter Special Functions area by pressing BAKE and BROIL keys at the same time for 3 seconds.
    5. Reset the control by pressing the 9 and 0 or the HOUR DOWN and MINUTE DOWN keys for 3 seconds at the same time.
    6. Approximately 20 seconds after the time is displayed, press the 1 and 5 or the TEMP UP and MINUTE UP keys. The control should briefly go blank, briefly display all segments, briefly display LOC REF, display all segments for 30 seconds, and then display LOC REF.
    7. Acknowledge LOC REF command by pressing the 6 and 8 or the HOUR DOWN and MINUTE UP keys at the same time. the control should then display the time of day.
    8. The oven should then be ready for normal operation.
    9. Test the functionality of the glass control panel, especially the CLEAR/OFF and/or CANCEL key(s).

    Steps 4 through 7 are appropriate if you have not opened the control panel area. I had to open mine to clean up moisture caused by a boil over.
    Judging from the number of inquiries on this same issue, this is a common problem. GE is more than happy to schedule a service call for this issue, but not so happy to give the information over the phone. This is a fairly simple procedure for most people to accomplish.
    The ERC on my range appears to be a fairly common unit. I hope this information helps.

    Unlocking Oven controls


    According to the manufacturer's website you should only need to Press and hold the "Lock" key for 5 seconds. A single tone will sound and the "Loc" will disappear off the display.

    This is the link to Whilpool's website and to the manual.

    Lighting the oven


    Control Lockout (on some models)
    Your control will allow you to lock out the
    touch pads so they cannot be activated when
    touched or cleaning the glass panel.
    To lock the controls:
    Touch the 9 and 0 touch pads at the
    same time for 3 seconds until the
    control beeps twice. The display will
    show LOC continuously and the time
    of day if not blacked out.
    NOTE: All cooking and timing functions will be
    cancelled when locking out the control.
    To unlock the control, touch the
    9 and 0 touch pads at the same time
    for 3 seconds until the control beeps
    twice, and LOC will be removed from
    the display.
    NOTE: Some models have a Control Lockout
    pad. Touch and hold it for 3 seconds to
    lock/unlock.
    Gas/Control Lockout (on some models)
    Your control will allow you to lock out the
    surface burners, oven burners and control
    panel so they cannot be activated.
    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 ON.
    To unlock the control, touch and hold the
    Gas/Control Lockout pad for 3 seconds
    until the display shows LOC OFF.
    When this feature is on and the touch pads
    are touched, the control will beep and the
    display will show LOC ON.
     The control lockout mode affects all
    controls. No controls will work when this
    feature is activated.
     The adjustment will be retained in memory
    after a power failure.
