My Amana gas range seems to be stuck in Sabbath Mode. We have tried the pressing of "clock" for 3 or 5 seconds and this doesn't do anything, as well as turning off the power to the range. Occasionally it comes out of Sabbath Mode long enough for us to bake something, but just as we begin to hope that the oven has given up celebrating its own Sabbath (which, btw, doesn't correspond to the Jewish or Christian Sabbath), it goes back in Sabbath mode.

Right now, it is refusing to bake anything (or broil for that matter). It also says "lock" over the time, when it decides to display the time at all. During the brief time it was out of sabbath mode yesterday, the "lock" over the time flashed. It has also capriciously decided to lock the door at various times, latest being last Friday when we needed to bake a cake. Fortunately, we have nice neighbors. It finally unlocked itself, but went right into Sabbath mode.

Any ideas? I would think that short of clerical intervention, we need a new control panel, but what about the locking? Do we also need a new lock mechanism and how hard it that to replace?

If you press "Cancel" and "Cook and Hold" simultaneously for 3 seconds it will enable/disable the Child lockout feature Which results in the displays and locking that you describe - Could be that cooking grease vapors have invaded the touchpad and is causing shorts in the keytails

You have to love self clean. It makes me alot of money out there in the field. Amazes me that they can put that small of relay's on the board and then add a self clean feature.

I have used the self clean only once years ago. It set off the smoke detectors, terrified the dog and drove the children out of the house. I just clean the oven the old fashion way with spray bottle and sponge. We don't eat meat, so there isn't that much to clean.

I tried the cancel/cook hold routine. Doesn't change anything.

What do people think about getting a refurbished board instead of a new one?

Personally I wish there were more refurbished parts out there. But problem is if they only replace the bad part and not typical problems parts like all the relay's etc. GE Top mount fridges used to have a relay that would burn out because there was not enough solder to keep the joint from getting too hot. I had fixed numerous numbers of those by replacing the relay and never got a callback on em. but in this throw away society you wont see much of that. My TV is a 47"LCD that got thrown away for a $600.00 power supply. Replacing $7.00 worth of capacitors 3yrs with higher voltage same farad ones made it a heck of a TV. My friends still drool over my $7.00 TV!

Contact the folks over at fixyourboard.com they pride themselves in rebuilding - with your symptoms though, I wouldn't rule out the keypad being at fault
