The owner's manual will cover how to turn the Child Lock on and off.

If for some reason you do not have your manual, I would contact Westinghouse Small Kitchen Appliances at 800-245-0600 or 800-947-3745 or visit here.

Oven Control Panel "OFF" or ignitor is broken?


need model number and brand name,i've seen the power go out and when the power comes back on the power surge takes out the computer board or clock assy.but if she touched the panel she might have locked the board,on some models if you hold the clockbutton in for 5 seconds,some you hold the start button for 3 to 5 seconds or it has a lock button on it so if you send the model number i can check that for you,you can try unplugging it for like 15 minutes and see if that resets it or the power surge took out the board if it's not locked out

It says it's locked...can't get it unlocked...can you help?


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

If it still doesn't work, I would say you have a problem with your keypad or possibly the control board.

But if that's thew case, we would need you to post a new help request that includes your detailed symptoms and the full model number of your oven.

Keypad locked, how do I unlock?


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes, then try again.

Otherwise, you have a failed membrane keypad.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved. It's here.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Let us know if we can help further.

Lock function reset for model JMV8208BAS


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

The owner's manual is online here and it covers the child lock:

To set the child lock.
Touch and hold
ENTER/START
pad more than 3
seconds. CHILD
LOCK ON will
appear in the display
window with two
beeps.

To cancel the child
lock.
Touch and hold
ENTER/START
pad more than 3
seconds. LOCKED
will disappear and
you hear two beeps.
