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

SOURCE: i don;t know why the buttoms are locked. how do i

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 that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

If it's still not working, you likely have a bad membrane keypad.

I can't help you furhter iwthout your full model number.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help or a free estimate.

SOURCE: My microwave door is locked and I don't have

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Unplug the microwave and plug it back after 15-30 minutes, now hold the CLEAR/OFF button for 30 seconds. If the problem is still there then it means that the door switch-lock assembly is bad and needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

The locker (latch) on my microwave broke. We just got the replacement part in the mail. Sears says we should be able to replace it ourselves. I see no screws to get inside the door. Does the plastic flange...


If there are no screws to hold the inside door cover in place then they are probably using snap or lock in tabs around the edges to hold it
in place. You will have to disassemble the door to replace the door latch. ----------

How do i unlock my lg microwave i dont have an owners manual so i dont know how to unlock it


"Locked" meaning the buttons don't work/non-responsive (Child Safety Locked)? To Unlock/Disengage the Child Safety. Push and hold the "Clear/Off" button for 3 to 4 seconds. The Child Safety is disengaged - problem solved.

My microwave is locked and i dont know how to unlock it


"Locke" meaning the door? or locked meaning the buttons don't work? If it is the buttons then you have the child lock on. Push and hold the "Start" button for 4 to 5 seconds, and it will unlock.

Locked Out of my microwave


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.
