Sounds like you have a shorting membrane keypad, or there any be moisture or grease in the controls.
To remove the controller to check for grease and moisture, see the video here.
We would need your full model number from the tag in the cooking cavity or elsewhere on the oven to help you further, and our advice is free.

Our GE Spacemaker XL 1800 microwave's controls are locked


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.

Unit "Locked"


"Locked" on the display is an indication that your microwave oven has a Safety Lock feature that allows you to lock the keyboard. It can inadvertently be set as a result of the consumer pressing and holding the wrong buttons and during power interruptions. You need to refer to the owner's manual under the Operator Controls section to see which buttons you need to press and hold to turn the feature on/off. If you no longer have an owner's manual, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER, so that I can provide you with a more conclusive solution. To answer your initial question, the oven SHOULD still be operational, but it needs to be unlocked in order to fully determine this. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: On many microwave oven models simply pressing and holding the CANCEL/OFF button for 3 to 5 seconds will turn the lock on/off. If not...please let me know.

The owner's manual for the NNV623 is here, and it says to turn the Child Lock off, press the Stop/Cancel pad three times.

Kenmore micowave


IF IT IS THE KEYPAD THAT IS LOCKED, ONE OF THE TOUCH PADS SHOULD BE HELD FOR 5 SECONDS TO UNLOCK THE
TOUCH CONTROL.YOUR INSRTUCTION MANUAL WILL TELL
YOU WHICH PAD TO HOLD. IF NOT AVAILABLE, TRY EACH PAD, ONE AT A TIME. HOLD EACH PAD FOR 5 SECONDS.
IF NO RESPONSE, TRY THE NEXT ONE. WHEN YOU FIND THE ONE THAT UNLOCKS THE CONTROL, WRITE IT DOWN
FOR FUTURE REFERENCE. THAT PAD WILL ALSO LOCK THE CONTROL WHEN HELD FOR 5 SECONDS.

Locked Out of my microwave


SOME MICROWAVE CONTROLS HAVE A LOCKOUT FEATURE FOR CHILD SECURITY. ONE OF THE PADS HAS TO BE HELD FOR 5 SECONDS TO LOCK OUT THE CONTROL.
IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHICH PAD IT IS, TRY HOLDING EACH TOUCH PAD FOR 5 SECONDS, ONE AT A TIME, UNTIL YOU FIND WHICH ONE UNLOCKS IT. THEN WRITE IT DOWN FOR
FUTURE REFERENCE. THE SAME PAD WILL LOCK AND UNLOCK THE CONTROL BY HOLDING IT DOWN FOR 5 SEOCNDS.

Kenmore elite microwave oven displays "Locked" and will not respond


My Kenmore Elite microwave (don't have the model number in front of me) also mysteriously locked its own keypad (we were sitting in an adjacent room, heard a strange beep, and got up to find the LED reading "Locked."). I pressed and held down the Stop/Clear button for ~10 seconds and it returned to normal.
