Hello,

Usually this means a stuck key on the keypad. you can disconnect the keypad, then power up the oven. If no error code: problem with keypad, if still get error code: problem with electronic control panel
ALSO NOTE THAT
what this error code means is an indication of wire from it position and also over flow of liquid substance like water or oil around the panel of the reader sensor.

what you need to do to fix up this problem is to unscrew the range with the bass tools then trace the wire down to the panel to see if there is an wire that have loose it position fix back to the panel connected to the screen ,but if there is no wire that have loose it position from the connection it then means is the over flow of liquid ,clean the surrounding of the wire and the pane; including the wires very well then couple it back to it position with care .With this the problems are solve .

please make sure that all power supply on the range are disconnected from it before working on it
.
Hope this helpout.. Good luck....

Why won't my oven let me set the temperature after a power failure?


Good Morning Annette,

I see that you are having trouble with setting the temperature of your oven on your range, model# FGB24S5A, after a power failure. I also see that you have reset your appliance by unplugging it and are receiving an error message of SAG or 5AB. I have looked into the model number that you have listed and it shows as a wall oven. I also do not show either of those error codes you have shown. If you can please get me the model number off your range, so I can better assist. The model number will either be right inside the oven on the back of the door or it may be located inside the bottom drawer. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Tip

My oven displays error code 5AB


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.

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.
