Unplug the oven, open the panel (by removing the 2 screws) above the lock handle. Clean it out. Sometimes mice can get in there and move insulation, etc. and if anything gets in between the lever and the micro switch it will make the oven think that it is locked. If it is clean, push the lever back and forth and listen for a clicking noise. If it doesn't click you need a new micro switch. I just had a similar problem and Tom at quality@applianceeducator.com helped me fix mine. Hope this helps you!

CONTROL PANEL FOR OVEN NOT WORKING AT ALL


Hi - I understand that the burners work, however 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 question, 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. Then a beep will sound and 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, confirm that there isn't a wiring failure or a faulty element.

The loc on light comes on when i push any button on my stove i do not know how to get it off


The LOC light indicates the front panel lock is on. This keeps you from starting the oven when cleaning the panel; it also keeps children from turning on the oven. To disable the lock, press and hold Bake and Broil Hi/Lo together for 2+ seconds until SF appears on the display. Then press Self Clean. Then press Start to exit the Special Functions menu.

GE appliance manuals are available from their site. Go to http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/ and enter the model number of the appliance. Then click Search.

I hope this helps.

I have a new control panel that was just put in 2 weeks ago. I pressed the button start to long & the "Loc" came up on the display & it won't go off no matter what button I push. I've...


Did you replace the panel yourself? If it was a repairman it should be under warranty. Anyway I would think that after the supply has been turned off overnight the timer would reset itself. If that doesn't work and you don't want to keep mucking around with control panels and you can do without the electronic clock the control panel can be easily bypassed by a repairman. This will then enable manual oven operation.

How do you unlock a kenmore elite cooktop?


You can do this by:
Check the oven display to see whether the screen says "LOC." When "LOC" is displayed, the oven lock is activated and the door cannot be opened. You need to make sure it is locked so you do not mistakenly lock the door.

  • 2 Press and hold the "Stop" button on the oven control panel until "LOC" disappears from the display. Some oven models have a button marked "Oven Lock," which should be used instead of the "Stop" button.
  • Lock the oven again by pressing and holding the "Stop" or "Oven Lock" button until "LOC" appears in the display

    "loc" display


    This just happened to me. I have whirlpool double oven accubake. The display went blank and i had to turn the breaker off. I left it off for several hours. When I turned the breaker back on my oven display read "Loc" in big letters to the right of the time. I held the start button down for 5 secs. The display went away and the oven started to work as if nothing had happened. I hope that is stays that way.
