My frigidaire ffmv164lsa microwave is stuck on child lock.

Hi my frigidaire microwave (FFMV164LSA) went into child lock for some reason and now it's stuck. No other buttons work. I've tried the standard method of turning off child lock and unplugging it and plugging it back in. The buttons do not respond. Any ideas?

SOURCE: How to stop the beep on a Frigidaire Microwave FFMV164LSA

did you ever get an answer to this? I have the same microwave and it's driving me crazy how it beeps really loud three times when it's finished. It doesn't seem to have a "menu" where I can do anything. I've searched and pushed every button to look for it.

Frigidaire microwave FFmv164lsa keeps blowing fuse


Disconnect connections at primary of the power transformer and try with a good fuse. If the fuse blows again, check crowbar microswitch in the latch assembly.

Frigidaire microwave model ffmv164lsa constant beeping, with little symbol to the top left hand side of the clock displaying with the beep.


Hopefully no one sprayed a liquid cleaner directly onto or near the keypad...

From page 23 of the owner's manual:

"Wipe the microwave oven inside and out with a soft cloth and and warm (not hot) mild detergent solution. Then rinse and wipe completely dry."

"Clean the outside surface of the microwave with soap and a clean damp cloth. Dry with a clean soft cloth. To prevent damage to the operating parts of the oven, do not let water seep into any vents or openings."

If there is moisture damage, it may dry out by itself if you leave it overnight with the door open. If not, the warranty would be voided and you'd have to arrange for out of warranty service.

If there is no moisture damage, and it failed not due to outside forces, then you should contact the manufacturer to arrange warranty service.

Frigidaire microwave key shows a lock and no keys work


Here is a previous answer that might be of help.......

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 it is still locked or goes into lock mode by itself, the "clear" key on your keypad may be shorting.
Here's how the child lock works on model FMV145:

Child Lock-Out
You may lock the control panel to prevent
the microwave from being accidentally
started or used by children.
To lock or unlock the controls, press and
hold CLEAR/OFF for about three
seconds. When the control panel is
locked, an "L" will be displayed to the
extreme right.

Frigidaire microwave ffmv164lsa constant beeping, with little symbol to the top left hand side of the clock displaying with the beep. Keypad not responding to presses. Unplugged the unit the problem r


Hey JT Tai, I appreciate your post!
The symbol at the top left hand side of your display could be child lock symbol or vent symbol. If it is the child lock you should be able to press and hold the stop/cancel button down for 3 seconds to release the child lock.

If the light is on for the vent I would seek assistance from a professional for proper diagnosis and repair to be completed on your microwave. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Frigidaire troubleshooting key pad seems to be stuck on child lock


If you have your owner's manual, read the section on how to disable the child lock. If that doesn't work the touchpad could be defective.

Unlock frigidaire microwave model FFMV164LSA


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you are trying to unlock your Frigidaire microwave, model# FFMV164LSA. This has two different meanings to me. First, if the door is locked and will not come open, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician. Secondly, the control lock is on. If the control lock is on, you will need to press and hold down the "Stop/Cancel" button for 3-5 seconds, to unlock it. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your microwave status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-
