That would mean it is locked.

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.
If that doesn't work, please post back with the brand and model, then maybe we can tell you which keys to press to unlock it.

Then we can propose a solution.

SOURCE: built-in microwave: display works but oven does not.

You didn't mention your model number. If I knew that, I could check to see if it's one of the models subject to a recall for failed membrane keypads.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

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

My micro wave reads that it is locked how do I unlock it. it is sears ultra wave


The "lock" function is nice if you have kids who like to push buttons. It disables the microwave oven to prevent it from running unnecessarily,
To disable the lock feature push the "STOP-CLEAR" button. Then press and hold the "START" button until 'locked' is no longer shown on the display panel.
To re-lock it, do the same thing until 'locked' appears on the display.
Have a nice day.

My built in 5 year old microwave AMW 520/IX display has gone wonky. Some of the LEDS stay on no matter what number should be showing.


The display driver is faulty. A replacement display board may still be available. Try www.espares.co.uk or a Philips Microwave dealer.

The unit seems extremely quiet and fills with steam when cooking. I'm concerned the exhaust fan on the microwave isn't working properly. I just got it so I can only compare it to other microwaves.


How old is the oven ???, Is the food saturated with water ???, Is the exhaust clear from any obstacle ??? Do you feel air coming out the exhaust when it's running ??? (compared to when it's not) if it's a new model it is NORMAL, newer (expensive) models tend to keep moisture in the oven... they are built that way to prevent drying out food (on the plate rim) or (if it's fresh from the box) check for forgotten PACKING material that could prevent the oven from exhausting properly... you could also call the manufacturer/GE to check with them as well...

Cheers!

How do I unlock the key pad? The display shows locked and I don't know how it locked.


Here you go.

The Child Lock shuts down the control panel pads to prevent
unintended use of the microwave oven.
When the control is locked, only the Vent Fan and Light pads will
function.
To Lock/Unlock Control: The microwave oven and Timer must
be off. Touch and hold START for 5 seconds until 2 tones sound
and a lock icon appears on the display. Repeat to unlock and
remove the lock icon from display.

Kenmore built in microwave displaying "D" and wont heat.


"d" may mean demo mode. The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power outlet for 10 minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.
