On the R1490-series, you press Custom Help > "1" > Stop/Clear to turn the child lock off.

This may work for you, or press Custom Help and look for a lock option.

If your model does not have a Custom Help button, please reply back with your exact model.

Microwave Sharp carousel model R-1440 appears to have had the child-proof lock feature accidentally activated--every time a button is touch on the face board, "lock" is displayed. As this unit is ~15 years...

I would expect that you have a shorting membrane keypad.

The original part number for the plastic frame with keypad was FPNLCB074MRK0 but it is no longer available.

The oven will have to be retired.

Check the user book for the unlock code. This could be the child lock mode.

If one of the safety switches are defective, or if there is a sensed power supply fault, the uPC will put the oven in the lock mode for safety reasons.

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.
