Your range is probably in the Sabbath mode. The error code shown on the display is"Sab", not "5ab".

To disable the Sabbath mode push and hold the Clock pad for 3 seconds.

How to clear or reset SA6 code on digital display? none of the button function works.

SAB (which is probably the display message) means that the range is in Sabbath mode. The unit believes that you want the range to maintain whatever the previous settings were for the next 24-36 hours. (This is useful for those who do no work on the Sabbath but wish to keep a dish hot in a low oven for the period.)

Providing the model number would be more helpful than the serial number. The manual for the range will explain how to toggle on and off the Sabbath mode. Since you don't give your range's manufacturer and model number, I can't be sure how to disable the mode. However, on some models, press and hold the Timed oven "Cook Time" and "Delay start" buttons. For some Maytag ovens, just press and hold the Clock key.

I hope this helps.

This is the Sabbath feature on my Kenmore Elite Electric Slide in Range. My oven manual says to press both the (timed oven) "cook time" button and the "delay start" button at the same time for approx. 3 seconds and this should shut down the feature. I had the same problem, tried the above and it worked.

Has a error mess that reads SAb

"Sab" actually stands for "Sabbath Mode". This mode is set for those religions that honor the sabbath, effectively disabling the range for up to 72 hours. Unplugging it or turning off the breaker will not reset it. The following link explains:

In order to unlock the controls you will need to reference your owner's manual. The model number you have this listed under requires you to press and hold the START button for 5 seconds to lock/unlock the controls. On other models, you press and hold the CLOCK button for 3 to 5 seconds.

If this is not the correct model number, or if you do not have an owner's manual, please post back with the model number so that I may assist you better. I hope I've been helpful to you.

I have a code on sceen 5a6 what dose that mean

What's probably being displayed is actually "Sab". This is an indication that the range is in "Sabbath Mode". This mode is set for those religions that honor the sabbath and disables the oven for about 72 hours. Unplugging the range will not clear this. It can sometimes be set accidentally following a power outage or inadvertently hitting the wrong button on the control panel.

If the model number you have this listed under is correct, you can cancel Sabbath Mode by pressing and holding the "CLOCK" button on the control panel for 5 seconds. If you refer to your Owner's Manual the instructions are listed under the Oven features section.

If you do not have a manual, you can go to and download one for FREE.

If you have any questions, please let me know. If the model number is incorrect, please post back with the correct model number so that I may provide you with better assistance. I hope you find this information helpful.

If you are receiving the SAb code your range is in the sabbath mode. I don't know what this means but it is really easy to fix. Press and hold the clock button for 5 seconds. The code will flash, let go and it is reset.
