I have an LG LRE6383ST range. When in Sabbath Mode, how do you know when the grill is on and off?


When in Sabbath mode the only thing that functions is the oven and it will remain on until Sabbath mode is cancelled. You can still change the temp while in Sabbath mode. If the light is on in the oven when Sabbath Mode is activated it will remain on. To turn it off you have to make sure it is off before turning on Sabbath mode.

What does 5AB mean on clock?


Your display is actually reading "SAB". This is an indication of a mode of operation rather than an error code. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608491-sabb_or_sab_explanation_kitchen_ranges

Sabbath Mode is a feature that allows the consumer to disable certain features of the range in order to honor the sabbath. Usually this disables the oven, but allows the consumer to still use the surface burners. 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.

Somewhere in the owner/operator's manual is a section that refers to "Sabbath Mode". Since all ranges differ in features and operator, you need to refer to the operation section of your owner's manual to find out how to shut the feature off.

If the model number you listed this question under is correct, you need to press and hold the CLOCK button for 3 seconds to clear the Sabbath Mode. "Sab" will flash for about 5 seconds, then return to normal display.

My maytag gemini oven has been stuck in sabbath mode for months and holding the clock button does not help. It does this everytime we lose power and it stays off for months and will turn on when ever it...


Hello,

This is from the Maytag website it explains how to cancel the sabbath mode;

To cancel the Sabbath Mode:
Press the Clock pad for three seconds.
Or
After 72 hours, the Sabbath Mode will end.
  • "SAb" will flash for five seconds.
  • The time of day will return to the display.
NOTES:
  • Sabbath Mode can be turned on at any time with or without the oven on.
  • Sabbath Mode cannot be turned on if the keypads are locked out or when the door is locked.
  • Most prompts and messages and all beeps are deactivated when Sabbath Mode is active.
  • If the oven is baking when Sabbath Mode is set, the Bake icon will go out at the end of the baking cycle. There will be no audible beeps.
  • If the oven light is desired while in Sabbath Mode, it must be turned on before the Sabbath Mode is started.
  • When the Sabbath Mode is started, the temperature display will immediately show the set temperature, rather than the actual oven cavity temperature. No preheat beep will sound.
  • The self-clean cycle and automatic door lock do not operate during the Sabbath Mode.
  • Pressing the Cancel pad will cancel a Bake cycle, however the control will stay in the Sabbath Mode.
  • If power fails, the oven will power up in Sabbath Mode with 72 hours remaining and no cycle active.


I hope this helps to return it to normal mode,
GENE

The electronic panel related to oven and clock does not work. code 5ab appears on the display


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Your range has somehow been set in "sabbath" mode ( for the Jewish calendar I think...not the metal band, lol ) If you have the owners manual turn to the section referring to this an it should instruct how to reverse the setting.

All ranges do it somewhat differently, so I can't say exactly how on yours. This example is generic, hopefully it works. If you are unsuccessful let me know the exact model number and I'll see if I can locate it.
Hold Clock pad for 5 seconds to activate Sabbath mode. Hold Clock pad for 5 seconds to disable Sabbath mode.
Oven must be in BAKE mode before enabling SABBATH. "SAb" displays and flashes for 5 seconds. All pad inputs are disabled except for CANCEL and CLOCK pads.

This mode disables the normal 12 hour shutoff to allow operation of the bake mode for a maximum of 72 hours.
Good luck. Thank you for choosing FixYa.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

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

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!
"Please rate this information "4 thumbs" if you found informational.

My Kenmore oven won't work there is a PF 5AB error


The PF on your control indicates a power failure and should be removed by pressing the cancel button. The 5ab code indicates the range is in the SABBATH mode.

If a power failure occurs when the SABBATH mode is set, the oven will return to the OFF mode and will turn the power OFF to the oven.

To ENABLE SABBATH mode:

* Open the oven door
* Press STOP/CLEAR
* Press both the HOUR "UP" and "DOWN" arrow pad at the same time - and hold for 5 seconds.
SAB ON will disappear from the display.

To disable SABBATH mode: Repeat the steps above and SAB OFF will appear.



To set the SABBATH mode for use during the SABBATH/Holidays:
* Press BAKE
* Pres TEMP "UP" and "DOWN" Arrow pad to enter a different temperature other than 350 degrees. (Between 170F and 500F)
* Press COOK TIME
* Press HOUR/MIN "up" or "down" arrow to set cook time
* Press DELAY START to set a delayed cook time (optional)
* Press and hold TIMER OFF for 5 seconds
SAB will appear on the display indicating it is ready.
* Press START
* To STOP cooking - press STOP/CLEAR
* To exit the SABBATH mode and return to normal operation - press and hold TIMER OFF for 5 seconds.

Sabbath mode


This feature has to do with when it is OK to cook during the Sabbath or some other Jewish holidays. If you are not of the Jewish religion, ignore it to allow your range to function 100 % of the time. Do not rate if you do not feel this is a Fix-Ya for your range, as other ratings will lower my score. Thanks.
