How turn off "loc" on whirlpool gold gas stove top?

The "LOC" code means that the control panel has been locked. This feature is useful when you clean the control panel, since only the Time and Timer Set and Timer Cancel buttons will respond. Since you didn't give the model of your range, I'll hope that your Whirlpool uses the following method to toggle the lock on and off. Press and hold the Start/Enter button until you hear a chime and see the LOC disappear. You'll need to hold the button for ~5 to 10 seconds. Repeating the press and hold should enable the feature. This works on the RBD245PDQ12 and related models.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model of your unit if this doesn't work. I'll check if there is a different option to toggle the control lock. You can also look at the control panel for a button with a small font caption about locking the control.

The latch is solenoid operated. remove power from the stove (unplug or breaker). That should release the lock. Close the door and power back on. Hopefully all will be reset.

Control lock preventing the operation of the stove

Hi Bruce, this is AP!

I understand you are struggling with the lock feature on your Electrolux duel fuel range, model EW30DS65GS. In order to cancel the Control Lock feature, press Control Lock and hold for 3 seconds. The control will unlock the oven door and resume normal operation.

This door lock feature is activated by pressing Control Lock and holding for 3 seconds. The Door Lock indicator light will flash for 20 seconds until the door has finished locking. Do not attempt to open the door while Door Lock is flashing, this may result in the door locking open.

This information is also located in the owner's manual should you like to view it again, you may retrieve a manual using your model# and the following link

I hope this information helps to some degree - thanks for your question, and please do not hesitate to reconnect.

Mcclary stove

One thermostat (sometimes at the back of the stove) is open/blown or the door locking assembly has failed. To open the door you may remove the back of the stove; take the door locking assembly apart to release the long wire that hooks the door close.
On some models you can see the locking the latching mechanism through a **** in the top front and can play with the mechanisms there to release the door.
Then you can begin to figure why the door latched in the first place.

My maytag range model mer5765ras lock is stuck can not operate anything except stove top We turned off electricity it released but as soon as I shut the door it locked Thank

On something like this I recommend setting the control up into a self-cleaning mode. Let the self cleaning cycle run for about 5 minutes then press stop/cancel. This should cause the lock motor to reset the lock switches.

I did not follow directions on self-cleaning and now stove is loc

Since the door is open and the lock is engaged, you will need to hold the "door closed" switch in located in the top left door opening. Push and hold the switch in, push the clean button, set the time at 3:00 hours, keep holding the switch in for 20 seconds, then push cancel button. The motorized locking mechanism should disengage. Then, you can release the switch. Hope this helps.
