Hi. Is there any Error code appears on the screen? Try this troubleshooting. Locate the light switch and hold it in for a few seconds. Sometimes it makes a noise and resets the lock. Otherwise, push the Clean button and the Cancel button on front of oven simultaneously and hold for about 30 seconds. The locked light should disappear. If it is working, you'll hear a mechanical hum as it resets.

Hello,

what this indicate is that there has been a loos of wire from the main power supply either from the wall or from the panel and it could also be from the fuse

here are the solutions to each likely problem .Carefully unscrew the screws at the back of the range then trace the wire connected to the wall down to the panel to see if there is any lose wire from it position then for the fuse


  1. Unplug your microwave. Insert the size 15 Security Torx bit into your multi-bit screwdriver and remove the screws from the back panel. Take off the back panel.
  2. Locate the fuse. It should be near where the electrical cord comes into the microwave. The fuse is a small white bar with metal caps on either end. Carefully remove the fuse. Avoid touching the transformer or other parts inside the microwave.
  3. Purchase a new fuse. Most range use an 18 amp ceramic fuse. Consult your owner's manual to find out what kind of fuse is used, or take the old fuse into the store to find the exact match.
  4. Replace the fuse. Put the cover back on and see if your microwave works. If it does, replace the screws. If it does not, try a different fuse. If the microwave still does not turn on, you may have to have it replaced of Electric Kitchen Range repaired.

thank you and thanks for using fixya.

Trouble light comes on, can barely read the instruction around it(faded over time)It says to push a red button but not sure where the button is. Help!!


When trouble light comes on, it indicates that the hi-limit is tripped (this happens when oil temperature exceeds 450 Fahrenheit). The red button is located at the upper back panel of the unit, give it a push to reset but if nothing happens after resetting the button, the hi-limit needs to be replaced. Also try to check if the thermostat is working, stuck thermostat's mechanical contact will cause the hi-limit to trip.

Control Locked


Locking controls
The Control Lock prevents unintended use of the washer. You
can also use the control lock feature to prevent unintended cycle
or option changes during a cycle. When CONTROL LOCKED is
lit, all buttons are disabled. You can lock the washer while it is
operating.

To lock the controls
Select and hold END OF CYCLE SIGNAL for 3 seconds.
The CONTROL LOCKED status light glows.

To unlock the controls
Select and hold END OF CYCLE SIGNAL for 3 seconds until the CONTROL LOCKED Status light turns off.
