Model/Serial#: MER5765RAW/15589899JR--exit sabbath mode

Model/Serial#: MER5765RAW/15589899JR

Stove has error code/message 5A6, which apparently means sabbath mode. Only fix I've seen is holding down the clock button for several seconds(3-5). It doesn't work. It blinks a couple times but the lock doesn't go away. Any suggestions?

We had some sort of electric power failure last night lasting only a few seconds, but now none of the control buttons on the gas range function. In the time window 5a6 shows. No way to use the oven.

Skip,

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

WENT TO SET CLOCK, SOMEHOW DIS-TURBED THE CONTROL BOARD, IT IS LOCKED, READS 5A6, CAN I UNLOCK IT?

Your range is probably in the Sabbath mode. The error code shown on the display is"Sab", not "5ab" or "5A6.

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

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

Code came up when trying to set tim code " 5A6 "

The error your range is displaying is actually "SAB", which means it has inadvertently been set on "Sabbath Mode". This mode enables certain religious faiths to disable certain features of the range in order to honor the sabbath. Usually this disables the oven, but allows the consumer to still use the surface burners. 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.

If the model number is correct, somewhere in the owner/operator's manual is a section that refers to "Sabbath Mode". Since all ranges differ in features, you need to refer to the operation section of your owner's manual to find out how to shut the feature off. According to page 17 of the Owner's Manual, to cancel the Sabbath Mode, you need to press and hold the CLOCK button for 5 seconds.

If you can't find this information, or no longer have an owner's manual, you can download or print a copy for FREE at managemylife.com. Just enter your model number under the "Manuals" link and you will find it listed in .pdf (Adobe) format.


If you have questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

The error your range is displaying is actually "SABBATH", which is Sabbath Mode. This enables the consumer to disable certain features of the range in order to honor the sabbath. Usually this disables the oven, but allows the consumer to still use the surface burners. 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.

If the model number you listed this question under is correct, this range is equipped with a Control Lock-Out feature, rather than a Sabbath Mode. To cancel the Control Lock, you need to press and hold the STOP/TIME and CANCEL pads down at the same time for 3 seconds.
