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.

Locks up and powers down during use leaves a F2 display on the clock window


Can't tell by pict for sure, IF this is a Microwave that is vented. Is it possible your vent it needs to be cleared. Sounds like possible moisture in the microwave, This would shut it down in the middle of a cycle. The moisture would happen from poor or clogged venting.

Locked


The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

It may be a failed keypad. If so, the unit cannot be repaired since the key unit is no longer available.

Sounds like a drawer type microwave or a combo oven and microwave?

If your manual's instructions didn't fix it, you can try a hard reset.

Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

If you still need help, please reply back with your model number so we can help you.

Control panel locked


A "hard reset" may work. Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.
