What were you doing when it ran out of gas?




Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Had been a week or two since I used the oven. Tried to use it but no gas so I had them fill my 400 lb. tank. It took 60 litres of gas on Tuesday. Today, tried to use the stove but no spark or gas smell from the burners. Oven is locked and will not open.
When you press any button does OFF show up in the display for about 15 seconds?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Yes. And now, I was playing with controls and hit bake. Went out of the room for a couple of minutes, the oven is working on bake. Turned it off. Top burners not working and no clicking for ignition. Oven still locked.
Cancel the bake cycle, If the unit is still saying locked, press the lock button for about 5 seconds it should beep, then wait a minute or 2 and see if the door unlocks

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Didn't work. Its still locked but the burners now work.
Okay now start a self clean cycle for about 2 minutes then press cancel, this should cycle the door open..

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Just tried clean then cancel and the door opened. Magic. What was this all about, Chas ???
I have no idea, but I see it these things often, at least you can bake again and cook... Make me a PIE, prefer Apple..
