Hold the button down again until it beeps and unlocks. The 3 seconds is more like 5-10.

My micro wave reads that it is locked how do I unlock it. it is sears ultra wave


The "lock" function is nice if you have kids who like to push buttons. It disables the microwave oven to prevent it from running unnecessarily,
To disable the lock feature push the "STOP-CLEAR" button. Then press and hold the "START" button until 'locked' is no longer shown on the display panel.
To re-lock it, do the same thing until 'locked' appears on the display.
Have a nice day.

Forgot my childproof code now i cant use my microwave how can i get a new one


Many microwave CHILD LOCK features are activated / disabled by repeatedly pressing one of the function buttons or by holding it down for about 5 seconds.

Try pressing the STOP / CANCEL button 3 or 4 times in a row to see if you can the CHILD LOCK off.

If that doesn't work, also try holding down that button down for 5 seconds.

Try these same two procedures on some of the other buttons as well like the TIMER button, or the START button, or the CLOCK button.

Your best bet however would be to include the brand and model number with your question next time and then we will be able to locate the exact instructions for you.

I hope this was helpful.

Good luck and take care.

Joe.

Says "locked' an unable to use, no buttons work


The child lock is on. Turn off the lock by pressing and holding 0 until the word Locked disappears.

To turn on the lock, press Stop/Clear and then press and hold 0 until the phrase appears.

I need to know how to unlock it


The Child Lock is on.

Your owner's manual covers it. If for some reason you don't have yours, you can download it free here.

CHILD LOCK
You may lock the control panel to prevent the microwave from being accidentally started or used by children.

Example: To set the child lock.
1. Touch STOP/CLEAR.
2. Touch and hold START more than 4 seconds. LOCKED will appear in the display window with two beeps.

Example: To cancel the child lock.
1. Touch and hold START more than 4 seconds. LOCKED will disappear and you hear two beeps. At this time the oven is ready.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

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.

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.
