SOURCE: Galanz Microwave Oven - Unable to disable child lock

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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Owners manual for Kenmore Elite Microwave Model 66462

A full 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.

No buttons on my keypad will work but the "power" button, when I unplug and plug back in when screen lights up in red it says "lock" PLEASE HELP ME! we payed alot of money for this...


Which brand and model of microwave do you have? It sounds like the child lock has been enabled. Different brands often have different ways to toggle the child lock on and off. Press the Cancel button first (just in case). Then press and hold the Start button (on the Kenmore in my kitchen) for 3+ seconds. Other brands it's the 0 on the keypad that has to be held for 5+ seconds.

My microwaves have a small padlock on the appropriate key.

I hope this helps.

(there are a few brands that have the child lock accessed through a secondary menu. Please add a comment with your microwave brand/model. Then I will check the specifics for your brand.)

MY displat shows a Child Lock problem. I find nothing in the manual about chikld lock. How do I unlock?


Manuals for some Thermador Microwaves are available here: http://www.thermador.com/trade/specifications-guides . Scroll down to Microwaves and select your model. Then press the link for Product Manuals and then choose the manual.

On the
MBES and MBESLFTD, the child lock feature is unlocked by pressing Settings 5 2 (touch each pad/number once).

If you have a different Thermador microwave, I'll check my stack of manuals for the specifics. (On a few other brands, the child lock can be toggled by pressing and holding the Start key. One of my other microwaves has a small padlock on the key to indicate the correct key. With that toggle, press and hold the key for 3-4 seconds or longer.)

I hope this helps.

How to unlock digitals butons?


Hi there,

It sounds like you've activated the child-lock - this would disable all of the digital buttons.

To switch the child-lock OFF, simply press and hold the START button for about 4-5 seconds until "LOCKED" disappears from the display.

To switch the child-lock ON, press "STOP/CLEAR" button once, then press and hold the START button for about 4-5 seconds until "LOCKED" illiminates on the display.

If the buttons aren't working and "LOCKED" is not displayed, then you may have a defective touch control pad.

Hope this helps - please let me know if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

How do i unlock my lg microwave i dont have an owners manual so i dont know how to unlock it


"Locked" meaning the buttons don't work/non-responsive (Child Safety Locked)? To Unlock/Disengage the Child Safety. Push and hold the "Clear/Off" button for 3 to 4 seconds. The Child Safety is disengaged - problem solved.

I need to know how to unlock it


The Child Lock is on.

Your owner's manual covers it. If for some reason you don't have yours, you can download it free here.

CHILD LOCK
You may lock the control panel to prevent the microwave from being accidentally started or used by children.

Example: To set the child lock.
1. Touch STOP/CLEAR.
2. Touch and hold START more than 4 seconds. LOCKED will appear in the display window with two beeps.

Example: To cancel the child lock.
1. Touch and hold START more than 4 seconds. LOCKED will disappear and you hear two beeps. At this time the oven is ready.

Unlocking child lock on the sharp microwave model R316FSC


The Sharp Microwave/Convection oven I have says to touch the Custom Help button, the number "1", then touch the Start Button. To turn off the child lock, press the Stop button.
Or just unplug it, wait 1 minute, and plug in.

Kenmore elite microwave touch screen stopped working


Same thing happened to us. We just came back from Sears, where we bought another. Just for giggles, my wife suggested unplugging the old one and plugging it back in again. It works now. New one's going back to the store.

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.
