Question about Maytag PER5510 Performa Electric Kitchen Range
Model #PER5510BAQ When I try to turn on "BAKE" the control panel shows "LOCK" is on. Would this possibly be the sensor/lock gone bad or maybe even the door latch switch?? The control panel seems to function just fine so maybe I can narrow it down to one of the two above. Does someone know with more certainty than I???
Rollover, press and hold the stop time and cancel keypads together for 5 seconds. See if it comes back to life...Catriver..post back.

Tips for a great answer:
I appreciate your post, Billy!
I understand that the lock control will not unlock on your Frigidaire range. I noticed that you have disconnected the electricity and the range is still not unlocking. I would recommend holding down the clear/cancel button for at least 15 seconds. If that does not unlock your range I would suggest that it could be a possible issue with your door lock or control panel. For any repairs to be completed I would recommend having a professional technician out to complete a diagnosis. This will help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Hopefully this information is helpful. -Matt
Good Afternoon Gwen - Try reprogramming the range by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn the unit back on. If issue persists, then the unit could possibly be experiencing an issue with a wiring failure, EOC (electronic oven control), sensor probe and/or faulty bake or broil element. I would strongly recommend consulting a professional to narrow down the precise issue before investing in parts that may or may not be the root cause.
Hello meathead4094 - Often when the LOCK light is flashing, it is because there is door malfunction. Try reprogramming the range by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn the unit back on. Typically, this will clear the flashing. If issue persists, the range could possibly have a faulty door latch, light switch or EOC (electronic oven control). I would strongly recommend contacting a professional to get the appropriate diagnosis prior to make any unnecessary part replacements.
This means 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.
