I have a whirlpool microwave WM1107ADWC and I want to turn off the Child lock. How can I do it? I don't have kids and i want to save time when I use my microwave. Thanks


Child locks on microwaves act as a safety feature to prevent children from getting harmed or from causing other possible damage. The child safety lock does not lock access to the microwave; it simply prevents the microwave from being operated. To remove the child lock press the Stop button three times.

Lock the microwaveIf you wish to re-lock the microwave, perform a similar procedure. Instead of pressing the Stop button you need to press the Start button. Press the Start button three consecutive times to lock the microwave. This enables the child lock once again and prevents the microwave from being operated.
check this video also. Many Whirlpool microwaves are made by LG. between these two you should get it.

How do I cancel the child lock on my microwave


Look for some button that has some teeny-tiny print beneath it that says something like "Lock - hold for 3 sec". Press and hold that button for 3 or more seconds, and your microwave should function normally.

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 mother mistakenly locked her samsung microwave. She can't figure out how to unlock it and she can't tell me what model it is. Can you help?


On a friend's Samsung (she didn't tell me her model number either), you lock the keypad by pressing "0" and then "2". Press the same sequence to unlock the pad. Maybe this will work on her model.

Error message "chiLd"


There is a Child Safety lock-out feature on some microwave ovens. This enables the user to lock the keypad to prevent children from playing with the control panel. The model number you have this question posted under has this feature enabled/disabled by pressing and holding the "CLEAR/OFF" button for 3 seconds. However, the display reads "LOC" when the feature is activated. I suspect your model number is different because of the display indication you are receiving. Review your owner/operator manual for how to disable the child lock feature. If you no longer have the owner's manual, or if you still have questions, please post back with your BRAND NAME and MODEL NUMBER, so that I may be able to provide you with better assistance. I hope this helps you.

On my NN-L738BA there is a Child Lock feature.
You set the child lock by pressing the Start button 3 times.
If the Child Lock is enabled it displays the word :CHILD".

To disable this feature on my microwave the manual says to
press the Stop/Reset 3 times.

Check your manual for the Child Lock.
