5Ab means that your unit is in sabbath mode. The oven goes into sabbath mode if you press and hold the clock button. Press and hold the clock button again for 5 seconds to exit Sabbath mode. Other than that, to set the time you just press the clock button (do not hold it) and then adjust the time. Holding the clock button will put the unit back into Sabbath mode.
