You may have inadvertently set your range to "Sabbath Mode". The display actually reads "SAB". This is a feature that allows the consumer to disable certain features of the range in order to honor the sabbath. You cannot defeat it by unplugging the range or turning off the breaker either. You will either have to wait 72 hours for the mode to clear, or figure out how to turn it off.
To turn the Sabbath Mode on/off on most Maytag models you simply press and hold the "Clock" button for 5 seconds. These instructions should be in your owner's manual.
If this does not correct the problem for you, please post back with your model number (located on the back of the range or around the oven door opening) so that I may be able to assist you better. I hope this helps you.

The fact that the display is 'ON' confirms you have power.
The displayed info probably is a 'code' for a fault/problem, but you did not provide a brand nor a model. Even if you had, odds are I do not have access to the list of codes & their meanings.
Try unplugging the plug from the wall receptacle. If you cannot reach the power cord next option would be locate the circuit breaker (single pole) which HOPEFULLY is labeled. Either way, try removing / turning OFF power for at least 10-20 seconds! The control's microprocessor may be locked up due to a very short power interruption.
If that does not reset it, I would call service or the manufacture. You can TRY requesting help over the phone FIRST! Good LUCK
Your range is probably in the Sabbath mode. The error code shown on the display is"Sab", not "5ab". Press and HOLD the clock pad for 3 seconds to disable the sabbath mode. The range will return to normal functions.

I am publishing this tip because of the many users asking me about the code 5AB on Amana, Maytag and other ovens.
Error 5AB in fact does not exist , and what you see written on display isnot 5AB.
The beeping sound is a warning because the oven is in lock condition. The oven is not faulty, and the code is not 5AB, but SAB.
SAB means that the oven is in Sabbath mode, and the control board will be locked for 72 hours with SAB on display.
If power is disconnected a new 72 hours cycle will start.
Depending on the model, there may also be a beeping sound when you try to operate the oven.
Push and hold the Clock button for about 10 seconds, until the display clears, that will reset SAB mode.
If that does not work leave the oven connected and off for 72 hours. If
the oven does not unlock after three days, then the electronic control
may be stuck in SAB mode because it is faulty, in that case contact the
manufacturer at the number listed on the owners manual.
Oven will not come on
