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.

You can contact Sears customer service via http://www.sears.com You need to have your exact / full model number (not just 5 digits) handy when you call.

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.

Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits,
such as ###.########
You can just enter your full model number at the Sears parts site.
On the resulting page, look to the right for the blue "View manuals" button. Click there.
That Sears-related site has many free manuals. While the manuals they list there are all free, they will ask you to register.
Many times, the owner's manual will have the installation instructions inside.
If yours is not listed there for free, you would have to order it through the Sears parts site.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
