Happy Thanksgiving. This is Dave. Is the door locked or is this the controls locked?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The lock indicator on the display flashes when other the Broil or Bake buttons are selected
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
When either...
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Are you still there?
Expert:  Appliance Tech Dave replied 1 year ago.

Okay, there are several variations for unlocking the controls but here is one way to try. Press and hold Stop Time and Cancel at the same time for three seconds. Let me know what happens.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The display now reads "OFF"
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What next?
Expert:  Appliance Tech Dave replied 1 year ago.

That means the control lock was not on. Repeat the process to unlock.

Expert:  Appliance Tech Dave replied 1 year ago.

Now when you press Bake does it let you set the temperature?

Expert:  Appliance Tech Dave replied 1 year ago.

Once you see the temperature you want the oven should come on after about 4 seconds.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Still doesn't let me set the temperature. Every time I press Bake, the Lock indicator light flashes.
Expert:  Appliance Tech Dave replied 1 year ago.

This is odd. Can you turn off the breaker for 3 minutes and then try again? It seems the control has a problem and sometimes this helps.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Nothing worked. I'm not satisfied. I don't want to pay. I do not authorize payment. Sorry. Have a Happy Thanksgiving
Expert:  Appliance Tech Dave replied 1 year ago.

Happy Thanksgiving to you as well. Best wishes.
