Hello, Give me a few minutes to pull up your model. thanks .Be right back.
Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.
okay lets try a few things, first lets see if the control is locked out.

Control Lockout:

The control can be Locked


Out by pressing Setup and then 4. When


locked "Control Locked" will be displayed and


scroll twice. Press Auto Set to toggle


between Locked and Unlocked. The control


lockout will not lock out the timer, clock,


setup options or oven light

 

next if that doesn't work see if this is in demo mode.

 

Demo Mode:

The control can be placed in a

 

sales demo mode by pressing Bake and Cancel

 

keys for 3 seconds. The demo mode can be

 

exited by pressing any key. This mode will

 

activate the display as if the unit is operating

 

without energizing the heating elements

 

let me know if either of them do anything.

Control Lockout - I pushed Setup (#9)then 4 - no "Control lockout was displayed. Which is the scroll key #5


I then tried the Demo mode but after hitting Control & BAK for 3 seconds - the display dis not change

Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.

okay that's probably not good. I have the tech sheets let me go over them some more.

While I'm doing that have you tried unplugging this for 5 minutes then plugging it back in to see if it resets ?

Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.

Okay I'm back and have gone through the entire tech manual. if unplugging this didn't reset the clock then we have one more thing to try. we need to see if this will go into test mode.

 

 

Test Mode:

Accessed by holding Cancel and

 

Broil keys down for 3 seconds within 5

 

minutes of power up. The test mode cannot

 

be accessed if the oven temperature is above

 

400ºF. When test mode is activated all digits

 

will display "-". To exit the test mode press

 

Cancel or auto exit occurs 16 seconds after

 

last key pressed.

Bryan,


Earlier I did reset the circuit breakers - I will try unplugging & leaving off for 5 minutes now before trying the Test mode option

Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.

okay if that doesn't work unfortunately theres no other reset for this. it means the control has failed. I have combed through the whole tech manual. I did find an 18 error which says the control has failed. let me know if this goes into test mode.

Bryan,


The unplugging & leaving off for 5 minutes worked. The control pad is back to normal DISPLAYS, SOUNDS and I can set temperaturesl & timers


So this is done & thank-you

Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.
