Question about Panasonic NN-S563 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Child lock?? I have a panasonic NN S543 BFW that worked fine for my mom but not for me. All the buttons work, I can set the time, but it wont turn on. If I push the start button a few times the display reads "CHILD" I am guessing it is a childproof mechanism, don;t know how it got turned on and can't find a way to disable it. microwave is dated aug 2003. Any suggestions? Thanks

SOURCE: my microwave says "child" and won't play anymore

Not sure of the TT series models but for the NN series models the procedure is as follows:-

If "Child" is displayed in the display window, then the child safety lock is on.

To remove the child safey lock, press the "Stop/Reset" button 3 times in fairly short succession (less than 3 seconds). The time of day or just the Colon sign (:) is then displayed

If you later want to apply the Child safety lock, then, when the time of day (or colon sign) is displayed, press "Start" 3 times (again in short succession).

Hope this helps

SOURCE: Galanz Microwave Oven - Unable to disable child lock

Galanz's website seems to be useless. I tried finding information but kept being told "no data available." So while I can't tell you where to find the manual, here's something to try. Most microwaves get put into lock by pressing and holding one of the buttons for longer than normal, or by pressing one of the buttons several times in a row. Some ovens use the TIMER button. It won't be one of the number keys, but one of the function buttons. So start with a button, press and hold it for at least 5 seconds before you let go. If nothing happens then try another button. If that doesn't solve the problem, then try pressing each function key several times before moving on to the next one. If that still doesn't get it going, maybe a store in your area that sells Galanz will take a look at the book for you. The process should be the same for any similar model.

Panasonic Microwave Model #NN-T993 displays fine and when I push the start button, the display shows it should be working, but turntable is not turning and is not heating.

Sorry to tell you this but some ones has to. Your unit is shot. the cost of repair out weights the cost of a new one. you can get a basic unitn 800 wates for a bout 89.00 you cant repair for that. Try looking at Thrift store;s you can find good clean working microwaves for $25.00 or less no kidding. happy hunting DFD
