I have a Sharp wall mounted oven that is stuck in Demo Mode

This answer was rated:

I have a Sharp wall mounted oven that is stuck in Demo Mode and the oven will not heat up. Sharp model KS-70S501ss-en. How can I reset it back to normal, there are no options on the display.
JA: Is your Sharp oven gas or electric? How old is it?
Customer: Electric 240 volts about 2 and 1/2 years old.
JA: How long has this been going on with your Sharp oven? What have you tried so far?
Customer: going on for a week, I can't get any help from supplier, purchased it on line. and Sharp uk don't seem to support it in uk. I am a retired electrical service engineer, with 50 years experience, and the oven does everything except heat up! I have checked it over for problems but nothing seemed out of order, I have even disconnected any heating elements that showed any earth leakage. I think it must be some sequence of the control buttons on the display to clear the problem any ideas
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Perhaps the Sharp service technician may have come across this before,
