    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. If that doesn't fix it, please reply back with your brand and full model number from the tag in / on the unit so we can help you.

SOURCE: can't use the microwave

To lock or unlock the keypad, press and hold the CLEAR pad for 5 seconds. If this recurs, you may have a power line problem or trouble with your controller. If you suspect trouble and it's under warranty, don't hesitate to contatc GE via ge.com. If you don't have your mower's manual, you can download one at: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/

SOURCE: Microwave is Locked

If the model number is correct, your microwave oven is equipped with a child safety lock. This feature can be turned on/off by pressing and holding the Clear/Off button for 3 seconds. The instructions are listed on page 28 of the owner's manual.

If you no longer have an owner's manual and would like to obtain one for FREE. Go to managemylife.com and enter your model number under the "Manuals" link. Your owner's manual and installation manual is available in a .pdf format that you can download or print for free.

If your model number differs from the one you posted this question under, or if you have additional questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

"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.

The Display on my microwave says "LOCKED"


The control lock shuts down the control panel pads to avoid unintended use of the microwave oven. To unlock/lock control, the microwave must be in standby mode, touch and hold stop/clear for 3 seconds until one long tone sounds and the display clears to show an outline if the display area. Repeat to unlock control, and return display to the time of day, if any pad is touched while the control is locked, there will be no response from the microwave oven. hope this helps.

My microwave is locked and i dont know how to unlock it


"Locke" meaning the door? or locked meaning the buttons don't work? If it is the buttons then you have the child lock on. Push and hold the "Start" button for 4 to 5 seconds, and it will unlock.
