Lock light will not go off

Try unplugging or reset the breaker. Leave it off for about a minute. If that doesn't get it then try to remove face plate. Disconnect the wires to the control panel. It can put it back in order. Next , maybe this should be second, try to google your problem and often times the results are there. I have loved many a problems doing that. Last resort, call mfr and see what they suggest. They may have the easiest and fastest fix.

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.

Oven is not heating up

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

This indicates an open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the sensor needs replacement. If you want to be sure before replacing the sensor then you can test it with a voltmeter for around 1100ohms....if it reads more than this then it needs replacement however, if the reading is around or less then 1100ohms then it is the control board that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions. Kevin

Oven door does not fully close

The usual reason for oven doors not closing properly, is weak door hinges,if it does not close all the way, and the door seal is o/k, then I suggest you replace both door hinges. Please rate my solution. Thamks.

Buzzing and f2 showing on display panel


The F2 error code means that the over overheated by at least 100 degrees above the tempature that was set at the time. The usual reason the oven would over heat by so much is a defective oven tempature sensor and the sensor would need to be tested to see if is the problem to test the sensor it would need to disconnected from the wiring to it and measure the amount of ohms of resistiance AT ROOM TEMPATURE when the oven is off and cool. At room temp. the the meter used to check the sensor should display between 1060-1100 ohms,if the number is vastly different that 1060-1100 at room tempature the sensor is defiently bad and should be replaced. This is what the sensor looks like oldtech2332_129.jpg
it will be inside of the oven chamber and again to properly check it the wiring should be unplugged and the meter leads should be placed into the plug at the end of the sensor to measure the ohms

The latch on the oven

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
This is a fairly common problems with these ovens expecially if you have just used the self clean feature or were using it and tried to interupt the cycle.
What you will need to do is first unplug the power to the oven then wait 1 full hour with out touching it then after the hour is up plug the power back in and you may hear a click sound if not wait additional 5 min then press the cancel or the off button for the self clean feature then try to open the door.
Now if this does not work than the door lock feature is either faulty or stuck which means that you will have to remove the top of the stove and unbolt the plate that is under neath there to get to the switch to release it once it has been released check it out really good to see if any of the wires look or smell burnt or the lock itself looks worn out if so replace it ok
Hope this helps you out
Best regards Mike

The oven keeps beeping code


F4 Error indicates a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue test the oven temp. sensor, it should read between 1080-1120 ohms, if the rating is more then that and the door appears to be closing fine then it is the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.
