This is likely the CHILD LOCK feature of your microwave whish is engaged.

Try holding down the CLEAR / OFF button or the RESET button for 5 seconds in order to disable it.

Since you did not provide a model number, you will have to check your own User's Manual for the exact detailed instructions if required.

Good luck.

I have a Shapr Microwave Convection model R-8880(W) T which is flashing after being stored for 3 months. It won't work, the timing light just keeps flashing on andoff 88-888. Does it have a reset...

Try pushing / stop reset first. The setting the time by pushing clock button .... punch in the time and push the clock button again. Just respond here if that does not work. 88-8888 is what you get after your first plug it in. Sometimes you will get PF if you unplug it and plug it back in. If that appears push stop / reset / clear. (Same button)

Push button that says 'clock' then use the '10min' button to set hour, '1min' to set 10 minute intervals, then '10sec' button to set minutes. Click 'clock' button again to save. The trick is to make sure the the colon like dot separator on the clock is flashing when you try to make changes. Did my head in working this out... in the end I had to ask my wife...

Seems like microwave is locked on clock

You have to set a time (any time) to use.

Press CLOCK, press number 2 then 2 then 2 again and then press CLOCK again. Does it say 2:22?

Everything should now work.

Do not run Empty, do not use any metal in there and do not use alot (MW kills all the vitamins and nutrition in food - like eating MUD for your body) .... and don't forget to reset the CLOCK ;-)

Samsung microwave

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Kenmore microwave

You may need to hit Clear or Clock first, or open the and close the door.

Otherwise, your keypad may have failed.

Please reply back with your brand and full model number so we can help you.
