    Thanks, but I had tried that unsuccessfully. Then I looked at the online manual and it suggested pressing 5 and 7 at the same time. I did that for three seconds with no luck.


    Let me know if you have any other suggestion.

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. To lock or unlock the controls, press and hold CLEAR/OFF for more then 3 seconds. When the control panel is locked, “L” or “LOC” will be displayed to the extreme right.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

    Hi



    Please follow all these steps as these are the only steps used to unlock the GE Space maker Microwave Oven: First unplug the unit and plug it back after 2-3 minutes, then hold down the "Clear" key until it becomes unlocked. You can also try pressing "Clear/Off" button for about 10 seconds or longer. If there is a stop/cancel button press that for 10-15 seconds so that if unlock.



    Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.





    Thanks

I have GE JVM1540DN1BB microwawe. It beeps all the time and says "keypad sorted" and service needed. The beep sound is annoying and it beeps every 30 seconds


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Touchpad and Control Panel If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad and control panel assembly are probably defective
Touchpad If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad might be at fault. Generally speaking, if the display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.
User Control and Display Board If the microwave buttons don't work the main control board is most likely defective and will need to be replaced.

Main Control Board If the microwave buttons don't work the main control board is most likely defective and will need to be replaced.

My microwave is built in and it says it is locked and will not work. What is the problem?


Since you didn't mention the brand or model number, I have to be kind of general.

If your oven has a child lock, your owner's manual will tell you how to turn that on and off.

If for some reason you don't still have yours, y
ou can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You can download owner's manuals and installation instructions for several brands (including Amana, Jenn-Air, Kitchenaid, Litton, Maytag, Roper, Tappan, Thermador and Whirlpool) here.

You can download Frigidaire owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You can download Samsung manuals here.

You can find links to other brands and find helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

Display reads... "control panel locked" how do I "unlock?"


The owner's manual will address any child lock.

If you don't have you r manual, maybe it;s a GE brand, since you posted in a GE category?

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

If it's not a GE, feel free to contact me directly with your brand and full model number form the tag in or on the unit for more free help.

A hard reset may work. Unplug it for a a couple of minutes, then try again.

If it still doesn't work, it may need a new keypad. Feel free to contact me directly (with brand & full model number) for more free tips or an estimate.

I have a ge spacemaker xl800 microwave. my child has pressed some button(don;'t know which one but now all the buttons are saying 'locked' what do i do?


i'm assuming that you don't have the manual. The unlocking procedure should be in the manual. Models with a child lock-out safety feature should have a "Help" button that will lead to an un-lock procedure or a special button that you need to hold for 5 seconds. Try holding down the "0" button or "Start" button for 5 seconds.

Control locked


If yours is a GE JVM1640 or similar GE model, here's what the owner's manual says:

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.

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/
