I CANNOT TURN OFF THE "LOC" MESSAGE

I TURNED THE OVEN ON SELF-CLEANING MODE. AFTER IF WAS DONE THE "LOC" APPEARED ON THE SCREEN AND IT'S BEEN LIKE THAT FOR OVER AN HOUR NOW. HOW DO I TURN IT OFF? I LOST MY INSTRUCTION MANUAL.

YOUR REPLY WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED. THANK YOU. We have the error code f9-2 and we have reset the breaker and that didn't fix it. What now?

    on my ge built in oven, I went ot clean it yesterday and all I got was the LOC display on the keypad, even when I touch every button. The doors aren't locked. I just can not get this LOC display off of the key pad and work my oven. I turned off the circuit breaker, all night and it still won't display anything except LOC after touching each key on the pad, itself

    after using the self-clean option and this was finished, the lock device will not turn off. the control board first said "f1". We called the dealership, and they said it was the clock and sensor and it would cost $300 to repair. After the call, the "f1" went off and now it just stays on lock. We unplugged it for 1/2 hour, and it still says lock and we cannot open the oven door.

Hi,

Initially, have you tried a full hard reset? If not, pls unplug from the mains. Most current devices would reset and revert back to factory default settings (assuming no internal hardware fault) when unplugged for a considerable period of time (a couple of hours). Of course doing a hard reset erases all glitches as well as user settings and configurations, the unit will revert back to factory default 9assuming no hardware fault).

Maytag Error Codes:
LOC - this means configuration setting changes will not be allowed F9-1 Latch lock upper F9-2 Latch unlock upper F9-3 Latch lock lower F9-5 Latch unlock lower F9-6 Latch both lower
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    okay i found the manual for you.


    “F” PLUS A NUMBER AND THE
    MESSAGE: “CALL AN AUTHORIZED
    SERVICER OR 888-462-9824”*

    This is called a fault code. If a fault code
    appears in the display and beeps sound,
    press the CANCEL pad. If the fault code and
    beeps continue, disconnect power to the
    appliance. Wait a few minutes, then reconnect
    power. If fault code and beeps still
    continue, disconnect power to the appliance
    and call an authorized servicer.

I am not sure you mentioned the brand you have but I have a GE profile range and the fix was as simple as pressing the 9 and 0 keys on the number pad at the same time. The range should beep and the loc turned off. Hope this helps.

    This solution above worked: "pressing the 9 and 0 keys on the number pad at the same time. The range should beep and the loc turned off". I hit clear, opened the door, then hit 9 and 0 together. Cleared it.

This might have been caused by heavy soil in the oven during clean cycle. Unplug machine for 30 minutes. Plug back in ans hold any key or cancel key predd in for 1 whole minute. that should take care of it.

How do I turn the temp down after oven has been on for a while. 'Loc on' message is showing and will not allow me to turn oven on.


Can you provide some additional details to help me help you? What kind of stove (make/model) and does it have any kind of self clean mode?

Without knowing the above details generally speaking of the oven is already preheated, to change the temperature you would hit the bake/preheat button to then adjust temp up or down with a digital stove. The dial stove from is self explainatory!

That loc on message may be because you have a stove lock lever or feature that prevents the stove from being opened when enabled, or when the stove is self cleaning. This may prohibit the adjust meant of temperature when the lock is on, or the stove is running through the self clean..

Again all just a general thought without knowing the above information... if you can post back or let me know is this was helpful in anyway to you! Thanks!!

Electrolux oven wont work after cleaning


Hi ja1078063,

I understand you having trouble getting your oven to work after using the self-cleaning mode. Does any part of the oven work? Confirm a fuse is not blown or a circuit breaker tripped. Test the power outlet with a lamp, hair dryer, etc.
Does "Loc" appear in the display if any button is pushed?
The Oven Lockout feature automatically locks the oven door, prevents most oven controls from being turned ON. Press and hold CLEAR/OFF for 3 seconds. A beep will sound. LOC will clear. The "DOOR LOCKED" will continue to flash until the oven door has completely unlocked.

Best Regards,

Oven doesn't heat


Hi Sharon Knight - Does any part of the range work? I would recommend verifying that a fuse is not blown or a circuit breaker tripped. Test the power outlet with a lamp, hair dryer, etc. Another questions, does "Loc" appear in the display if any button is pushed? The Oven Lockout feature automatically locks the oven door, prevents the warmer drawer and most oven controls from being turned ON. If so, press and hold CLEAR/OFF for 3 seconds. A beep will sound. LOC will clear. The "DOOR LOCKED" will continue to flash until the oven door has completely unlocked. Does the clock display "Sd" or "dddd"? If so, the clock is in sales demo mode. Press and hold the "BAKE TIME" button for 6 seconds to exit sales demo mode. If this does not prove to be successful, contact a professional to have EOC diagnosed and/or to confirm that there isn't a wiring failure.

The LOC on messsage appears on the screen when we go toturn the oven on. NEED the OVEN. What could we do to fi it?


The control lock has been activated. This feature is useful when you are cleaning the panel so that you don't accidently start the oven or the self-cleaning cycle. Try pressing Bake and Broil Hi/Lo together for 2 seconds (or a bit longer). SF should appear in the display. Then press Self Clean and Start. (When you press Self Clean the LOC message should disappear.)

Manuals for most GE appliances are available here: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/ . Enter the model number and click Submit. The direct link to the manual for the JTP18WWWW is: http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=981140017.PDF .

I hope this helps.

Self clean light blinks when you turn oven on (oven does not work)


I had this same problem with mine (still posted under unsolved) This is the simpler model with the old turn style knob and the lever you slide over to lock the door for cleaning What I think (keep in mind I know little about ovens, more about cars) is that the switch that tells the oven the door is latched is staying engaged, and this is part of the lever mechanism. I cleaned and lubed this mechanism (obviously I would guess you want to use a food safe lubricant) and then moved the lever several times with the oven on so I could see if it turned on. After a few tries the cleaning light went off and the oven light came on. No, its not really a technical answer, all indications to me where that the problem was in the switch which is part of the latch mechanism. Good luck
