SOME MICROWAVE CONTROLS HAVE A LOCKOUT FEATURE FOR CHILD SECURITY. ONE OF THE PADS HAS TO BE HELD FOR 5 SECONDS TO LOCK OUT THE CONTROL.
IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHICH PAD IT IS, TRY HOLDING EACH TOUCH PAD FOR 5 SECONDS, ONE AT A TIME, UNTIL YOU FIND WHICH ONE UNLOCKS IT. THEN WRITE IT DOWN FOR
FUTURE REFERENCE. THE SAME PAD WILL LOCK AND UNLOCK THE CONTROL BY HOLDING IT DOWN FOR 5 SEOCNDS.

Screen says "locked" and nothing happens when you


The child lock has been enabled on the microwave. To disable the lock, press and hold 0 until the Locked message disappears from the screen. To set the Lock, press Stop/Clear (to clear the display) and then press and hold the 0 pad until the phrase Lock appears and you hear two beeps.

The manual for the microwave is available here: http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/product_literature/search_results.jsp?searchTerm=JMC8130DDS&siteCd=JA_EN_US&userType=Consumer . The direct link to the manual is http://www.kitchenaid.ca/assets/pdfs/literature/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%208112P218-60.pdf .

I hope this helps.

My microwave keeps saying "locked"


I dont know if you have tried it but maybe unplug it for 10 minutes (to let all electricity drain out) then it might reset. If this doesnt help I'm sure sorry.

The Display on my microwave says "LOCKED"


The control lock shuts down the control panel pads to avoid unintended use of the microwave oven. To unlock/lock control, the microwave must be in standby mode, touch and hold stop/clear for 3 seconds until one long tone sounds and the display clears to show an outline if the display area. Repeat to unlock control, and return display to the time of day, if any pad is touched while the control is locked, there will be no response from the microwave oven. hope this helps.

How to unlock the microwave


hi,

if there is a key on the pad that says "child lock" press and hold that for 30 seconds or so until it unlocks, if there is no key that says "child lock" try doing that to the "end/stop" key or the "start" key
