Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 8 years ago.
the model should be located on a sticker if you open the door or pull the utility drawer out.

there is no visble model number when i open the door to the oven.
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 8 years ago.
well unfortunately without a model number I can only give you a generic type answer. First turn the power off to the oven by reseting the circuit breaker or unplug the range for 60 seconds.

If that doesn't work then hold each button 1 at a time for 10 seconds each to see which one clears the control lock.
