Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

5Ab means that your oven sent into Sabbath mode. This happens if you press and hold the clock button. To exit, just press and hold the clock button again for 5 seconds. When you set the time, just tap the clock button once and adjust the time. If you hold the clock button it'll lock you out and go into Sabbath.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here.
