SOURCE: my maytag gemini oven has been stuck in sabbath

Hello,

This is from the Maytag website it explains how to cancel the sabbath mode;

To cancel the Sabbath Mode:
Press the Clock pad for three seconds.
Or
After 72 hours, the Sabbath Mode will end.

  • "SAb" will flash for five seconds.
  • The time of day will return to the display.
NOTES:
  • Sabbath Mode can be turned on at any time with or without the oven on.
  • Sabbath Mode cannot be turned on if the keypads are locked out or when the door is locked.
  • Most prompts and messages and all beeps are deactivated when Sabbath Mode is active.
  • If the oven is baking when Sabbath Mode is set, the Bake icon will go out at the end of the baking cycle. There will be no audible beeps.
  • If the oven light is desired while in Sabbath Mode, it must be turned on before the Sabbath Mode is started.
  • When the Sabbath Mode is started, the temperature display will immediately show the set temperature, rather than the actual oven cavity temperature. No preheat beep will sound.
  • The self-clean cycle and automatic door lock do not operate during the Sabbath Mode.
  • Pressing the Cancel pad will cancel a Bake cycle, however the control will stay in the Sabbath Mode.
  • If power fails, the oven will power up in Sabbath Mode with 72 hours remaining and no cycle active.


I hope this helps to return it to normal mode,
GENE

The electronic panel related to oven and clock does not work. code 5ab appears on the display


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Your range has somehow been set in "sabbath" mode ( for the Jewish calendar I think...not the metal band, lol ) If you have the owners manual turn to the section referring to this an it should instruct how to reverse the setting.

All ranges do it somewhat differently, so I can't say exactly how on yours. This example is generic, hopefully it works. If you are unsuccessful let me know the exact model number and I'll see if I can locate it.
Hold Clock pad for 5 seconds to activate Sabbath mode. Hold Clock pad for 5 seconds to disable Sabbath mode.
Oven must be in BAKE mode before enabling SABBATH. "SAb" displays and flashes for 5 seconds. All pad inputs are disabled except for CANCEL and CLOCK pads.

This mode disables the normal 12 hour shutoff to allow operation of the bake mode for a maximum of 72 hours.
Good luck. Thank you for choosing FixYa.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

5A6 6ATH error message


Hi and Wlecome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

This is the Sabbath mode. Why it even exists is odd in itself.
Hold CLOCK for 3 seconds to disable the Sabbath mode.

This should get it back to normal operation.

How do i get it off of sab bath


Sabbath Mode is a feature that allows the consumer to disable certain features of the range in order to honor the sabbath. Usually this disables the oven, but allows the consumer to still use the surface burners. You cannot defeat it by unplugging the range or turning off the breaker either. You will either have to wait 72 hours for the mode to clear, or figure out how to turn it off.

Somewhere in the owner/operator's manual is a section that refers to "Sabbath Mode". Since all ranges differ in features, you need to refer to the operation section of your owner's manual to find out how to shut the feature off.

The model number you listed this question under does not have the Sabbath Mode feature. I couldn't find it listed in the owner's manual. Do you have the correct model number? On most Maytag model ranges you press and hold the CLOCK button for either 3 or 5 seconds.

If you can't find this information, or no longer have an owner's manual, you can download or print a copy for FREE at managemylife.com. Just enter your model number under the "Manuals" link and you will find it listed in .pdf (Adobe) format. If you have questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Erroe code 5ab


According to the manual, this mode is SAB and not 5AB. SAB stands for sabath mode and lasts for 72 hours. The mode may be canceled by holding in the clock button for 3 seconds. This mode was activated by holding in the clock button for 3 seconds. My wife did the same thing when resetting the clock for daylight savings time this year. Resetting the power does not reset SAB mode.

Oven and clock inop


You might have a problem with the circuit breaker - reset it by pressing the switch ocated on he lower edge of the backguard (in Canadian models). There are several things that could cause the oven not to operate, but generally you would get a message on the display - "Lock", "Sabbath" etc. Just in case your display is damaged and that's why you don't see any message, try to press and hold the "cancel" and "cook and hold" pads for three seconds (to unlock the oven in case it is locked), and then check to see if the oven works. if not, repeat this procedure (to make sure that you didn't lock it just now), and then press and hold the "clock" pad for three seconds (to unlock the oven in case it is in "sabbath mode"). If it still doesn't work, you might need to replace a fuse.
