Hi there, if you know what model it is you can do a google search for the owners manual. There should be a sequence of buttons you can push or hold to reset to factory/default settings.

The loc on light comes on when i push any button on my stove i do not know how to get it off

The LOC light indicates the front panel lock is on. This keeps you from starting the oven when cleaning the panel; it also keeps children from turning on the oven. To disable the lock, press and hold Bake and Broil Hi/Lo together for 2+ seconds until SF appears on the display. Then press Self Clean. Then press Start to exit the Special Functions menu.

GE appliance manuals are available from their site. Go to and enter the model number of the appliance. Then click Search.

I hope this helps.

GE JKS05 loc Getting "loc" on the display screen. Can't unlock it. Tried turning circuit breaker of for up to 15 mins, but didn't help.

HI. This is a control lock out feature. This is a child safety feature, and not a oven fault. Simply, Press the Nine and zero pad, simultaneously, until the "LOC" code disappears.

This will correct the issue.

How to unlock region code for Yamaha-DVD-S1800-DVD-Players

This worked last time I tried it. As with all region hacks you must first ensure that the remote has fresh batteries inside.

1. Switch the DVD S1800 on using either the remote or the front panel button.
2. Open the disc loading drawer and leave it open
3. Using the remote control press the "Clear" button.
4. Use the remote keypad to type in "2580".
5. Now press "Subtitle" on the remote.
6. Close the disc loading drawer.
7. Wait until the player has finished the loading cycle
8. Switch the device off using either the remote or the front panel switch.

When you turn the player back on it should be a region 0 (i.e. multi-region) player.

I hope that this has provided the answer you require, if so all I ask in return is that you remember to rate my answer.

417.44092500 front load washer I get a LOC err,

The LOC code merely means the control responded and locked the door. You'll find a tech sheet under the top panel of the machine to help guide you thru the diagnostic process, which is fairly involved.

LOC means it thinks the control panel is locked. This gives the ERR indication when you push the buttons. To unlock it you need to hold down the Options and Select buttons together until it reacts.

I know this may seem silly but - On the top right back corner of your washer hit it with medium force with your fist, this helps.

I have a sanyo dvd player dwm-395. how do i unlock it w/o remot

For the DVM-390 model, I believe this solution should work on the DVM-395 model - Push and hold down the Open/Close button until "UN-LOC" appears on the FL display (or "Disc Tray Unlocked" appears on the TV screen).
