Question about Kenmore 62622 Microwave Oven

Kenmore elite microwave oven displays "Locked" and will not respond

Somehow my kenmore elite microwave oven became "Locked." This is displayed above the time, which seems to still be keeping time. However, nothing else works, except the door will open.

The light below the oven is on, but can't be turned off. None of the buttons respond to being pushed.

Can anyone help?

    We have had two Kenmore microwaves in the last month, because both of them operate as you describe. The first one worked for 4 months then started having the locked problem. The new one worked for 2 days before developing this same issue.
    we went to Kenmore because the Panasonic microwave we'd been buying (2) up and died after 18 months.

My Kenmore Elite microwave (don't have the model number in front of me) also mysteriously locked its own keypad (we were sitting in an adjacent room, heard a strange beep, and got up to find the LED reading "Locked."). I pressed and held down the Stop/Clear button for ~10 seconds and it returned to normal.

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 reply back with your exact model number.

A full Sears/Kenmore model number usually has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

You may have a bad keypad due to moisture from steam or spray.

Seems like microwave is locked on clock


You have to set a time (any time) to use.

Press CLOCK, press number 2 then 2 then 2 again and then press CLOCK again. Does it say 2:22?

Everything should now work.

Do not run Empty, do not use any metal in there and do not use alot (MW kills all the vitamins and nutrition in food - like eating MUD for your body) .... and don't forget to reset the CLOCK ;-)
