Question about Maytag Kitchen Ranges

Open Question

Gemini. Why does it appear to be in sabbath mode after power failure?

Holding the clock button for 3 seconds as manual says does nothing, nor does holding it any longer than that.

SOURCE: my maytag gemini oven has been stuck in sabbath

Hello,

This is from the Maytag website it explains how to cancel the sabbath mode;

To cancel the Sabbath Mode:
Press the Clock pad for three seconds.
Or
After 72 hours, the Sabbath Mode will end.

  • "SAb" will flash for five seconds.
  • The time of day will return to the display.
NOTES:
  • Sabbath Mode can be turned on at any time with or without the oven on.
  • Sabbath Mode cannot be turned on if the keypads are locked out or when the door is locked.
  • Most prompts and messages and all beeps are deactivated when Sabbath Mode is active.
  • If the oven is baking when Sabbath Mode is set, the Bake icon will go out at the end of the baking cycle. There will be no audible beeps.
  • If the oven light is desired while in Sabbath Mode, it must be turned on before the Sabbath Mode is started.
  • When the Sabbath Mode is started, the temperature display will immediately show the set temperature, rather than the actual oven cavity temperature. No preheat beep will sound.
  • The self-clean cycle and automatic door lock do not operate during the Sabbath Mode.
  • Pressing the Cancel pad will cancel a Bake cycle, however the control will stay in the Sabbath Mode.
  • If power fails, the oven will power up in Sabbath Mode with 72 hours remaining and no cycle active.


I hope this helps to return it to normal mode,
GENE

The electronic panel related to oven and clock does not work. code 5ab appears on the display

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Your range has somehow been set in "sabbath" mode ( for the Jewish calendar I think...not the metal band, lol ) If you have the owners manual turn to the section referring to this an it should instruct how to reverse the setting.

All ranges do it somewhat differently, so I can't say exactly how on yours. This example is generic, hopefully it works. If you are unsuccessful let me know the exact model number and I'll see if I can locate it.
Hold Clock pad for 5 seconds to activate Sabbath mode. Hold Clock pad for 5 seconds to disable Sabbath mode.
Oven must be in BAKE mode before enabling SABBATH. "SAb" displays and flashes for 5 seconds. All pad inputs are disabled except for CANCEL and CLOCK pads.

This mode disables the normal 12 hour shutoff to allow operation of the bake mode for a maximum of 72 hours.
Good luck. Thank you for choosing FixYa.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

This morning the clock on my range says '5 A6' and cannot be reset. I unplugged but the same message comes up again

What looks like "5 A6" is actually "Sab" for "Sabbath mode'", believe it or not. Reading and re-reading my owner's manual didn't actually clear up what the heck "Sabbath Mode was, but to cancel it press and hold the CLOCK button for 3 seconds or wait 72 hours and Sabbath Mode will end.

I cancelled the clean proprocess and then the display shows 5ab and I can't get the oven to work or clock .. anything, no beeping

somehow you put it in sabbath mode,yes sabbath mode,a feature known as "Sabbath mode." According to the Jewish Sabbath law, raw food may not be cooked on the Sabbath, but food that was already cooked beforehand may be kept warm until mealtime. On Jewish holidays, food may be cooked fresh, but turning the flame on poses a problem given electrical requirements forbidden by Sabbath observers.try holding the clck button in for 3 to 5 seconds to take it out of sabbath mode

5A6 6ATH error message

Hi and Wlecome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

This is the Sabbath mode. Why it even exists is odd in itself.
Hold CLOCK for 3 seconds to disable the Sabbath mode.

This should get it back to normal operation.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

How can I disable Sabbath Mode on my Jenn Air JDR8895AAS

Sabbath Mode on this model can be disabled by pressing the "CLOCK" button and holding it for 3 seconds. "SAb" will then flash for 5 seconds, then return to normal display. Sabbath Mode will also automatically turn off after 72 hours.

These instructions are listed on page 16 of your owner's manual. If you no longer have a manual, you can obtain a replacement copy at managemylife.com. Just enter your model number under their "Manuals" link and you will find the owner's and installation manuals available in .pdf format. You can download or print a copy for FREE.

For your convenience, here's a direct link:

If you require additional assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

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.
