1. Plug the range into the wall outlet or reset the house circuit breaker for the range to restore power.

2. Press the Clock AM/PM button twice and then select AM.

3. Press 1, 2, 3, 4 on the numeric keypad.

4. Press SET/START.

5. Press and hold CUSTOM COOK and 0 (zero) at the same time, for 2 full seconds. The most recent error code is displayed.

6. Either press 0 (zero) to scroll through the previous 4 error codes or press CLEAR/OFF to exit the error code display mode.
