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

5A6 means you're in sabbath mode. This occurs if you press and hold the clock button instead of just press it 1 time to set the clock. To exit, just press and hold the clock button again for 5 seconds and the oven should exit Sabbath mode. After that, just press the clock button once and adjust the time to set your time.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here. Please remember to rate my service by selecting a star at the top or bottom of the screen before you leave today and reply back here letting me know with a rating of 1-5 stars (5 being the best). If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.
