How do you unlock the control locked function on a Maytag Gemini elec. range?

If its a self cleaning unit, try start the self cleaning cycle, then cancel it. If that doesn't work let the self clean cycle finish completely and it should go back to normal.

Power door locks stopped working

Try taking the central control panel loose and spraying the switch with WD-40 to see if that fixes your problem. If it has been used often it may have residue build-up on the contact points in the switch and WD-40 will make it work again. Your remote activates the main control button inside the car so I think this should solve your problem.

My Frigidaire microwave display reads "LOCK" and it will not work. What should I do?

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.

You can find your manual here.

If you think the controller or keypad may have failed, see us here or order parts here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

When I hold the button for it to start it clicks and starts flashing F then dL It will not start washing

The "f" part is saying that you have a fault, and the "dL" part indicates that your control panel thinks that there is an issue with your door lock. The brain will attempt to lock the door six times, then flash the error code. Press pause/cancel twice to clear the alarm. Then check your lock. Usually, it's something loose on the lock or catch; it can be the wiring to the lock being loose, or the control panel may have a fault. Start with the lock, and work back to the control panel.

Best regards, --W/D--

Buttons don't work [7, 9 & Start]

make sure the unit is not control locked, usually holding start for 5 seconds activates this, most kitchenaids contain a lock symbol on control panel so hold that if you have it.

if its not control locked and not in sabbath mode (sometimes this is a SAB or to some looks like 5A6 on control panel) holding clock pad for 5 seconds activates and deactivates this same as start does with control lock

when you order the part you want to replace the part called Clock AKA PCB AKA ECB, these are the three most common names, the control panel is the decorative cover

Error : LOC

I have the exact same problem. Found this posting: From "John": "The control panel may in *LOCKED* mode. Press the *OPTIONS* and *SELECT* buttons at the same time and hold for about three seconds to unlock the control panel. Make sure the detergent tray is fully closed too." I pressed both *OPTIONS* and *SELECT* as suggested... worked like a charm.
