Range and Wall Oven Sabbath Mode

The Sabbath mode feature was designed for use on the Jewish Sabbath and holidays when the observant are prohibited from turning the oven on or off, or taking an action that causes the oven control display to change. The Sabbath mode control allows the oven to operate in the Sabbath mode for a minimum of three days; however, Sabbath Mode will stay on until turned off.

The Sabbath feature can be used for regular or timed baking and roasting. It cannot be used for convection cooking, broiling, delay-start cooking or self-cleaning.

When activated this feature, the oven may be set to go on immediately and stay on for a set amount of time, or to turn off automatically after a set amount of time. The oven will stay at the temperature the user selects when entering the Sabbath mode.

  • The digital display will not illuminate to show time, temperature or the selected oven function until the Sabbath mode feature is manually deactivated at the end of the Sabbath or holiday.
  • The oven controls can be set before or after the Sabbath feature is activated. In the event of a power failure while the oven was set in Sabbath mode, the oven will automatically turn off and stay off, even when power is restored.
  • The oven control must be reset. The oven light in the single wall oven and the upper oven of a double wall oven is automatically locked out by the control while using the Sabbath mode feature.
  • The light in the lower oven of the double wall oven comes on automatically when the door is opened. This oven light may be turned on prior to the Sabbath or the light bulb may be removed.
  • On some models, the clock will still show the time, but not the temperature or oven function.

If running a self-clean cycle prior to setting Sabbath Mode, note that Self-Clean ovens reach a temperature of approximately 880 degrees F (does not reach 900F). This is sufficient to burn off food soils to ash, which can then be wiped away. If food particles remain, try running an additional self-clean cycle. Directions can be found in your Owner's Manual.
