    Thank you for the suggestion. Tried that, but the keypad remained locked! I found the fix online along with a manual for another range with the same digital keypad. To unlock the keypad you hold down the Cooking Mode button for 5 seconds. I tried holding down each key earlier, but it really needs to be for 5 long seconds.

Without the manual, I'd just try powering it off and back on unless it is really difficult to pull out.

Blinking electronic display on microwave


see the cause and proceed according. God bless you
but can not program unit, Touchpad dead If you have a stuck key or non-responsive key, most of the time you will have to replace the keypad for this microwave oven repair. If your keypad is connected to your control board by a flat ribbon wire, try disconnecting it and clean the silver contacts with an ordinary pencil eraser. After cleaning, plug it back in and try it. If it doesn't fix it, replace the keypad unit. Some units actually have keypad tests to confirm your diagnosis of a bad key.If your keypad and control is the same unit, replace that unit. Another note, unlike stove/oven keypads and controls, most microwaves do not have error codes or tests to distinguish whether it is truely the keypad or control. Most of the time, it is the keypad that needs replacing, but a small percentage of the time it can be the control. Check the tech sheet if they can point you to the right part.

I have taken the cover off my Samsung re1200 microwave for cleaning and now the digital display is locked after I have put it back on and switched it on..! Any ideas? Richie


Some fluid must have dripped down on the keypad control board while you were cleaning, or there was a static discharge that locked the display. Unplug the microwave oven overnight in a attempt to get the microprocessor ic to reset, hopefully this will cure the problem.

Microwave is locked up. Says Lock on screen and cannot get it to go away after hitting Clear several times. How do I get it off "lock" status?


HELLO.

GE manufactures various models of microwaves with a range of features.
Among them is a child safety feature that allows parents to lock the keypad. Though children can still open the door, the keypad lock prevents them from starting the microwave. The lock is in the form of a keypad code that renders the buttons inactive.


* 1 Press and hold the "Clear/Off" button on the microwave's keypad.
* 2 Hold the button down for three seconds.
* 3 Wait for the "L" on the keypad's display to disappear and display the time instead, signifying that the device is no longer locked.

Willing to help solve more problem.

Thanks.

HOW TO UNLOCK JEN-AIR STOVE TOP MODEL# JED4536WR01


The All Off cooktop touch control turns off the downdraft exhaust

system and all surface cooking areas that are in use at the same

time.



The Lock cooktop control avoids unintended use of the surface

cooking areas. When the cooktop is locked out, the surface

cooking areas cannot be turned on by the cooktop touch

controls.



To Lock Cooktop: Touch and hold the ALL OFF/LOCK keypad

for 4 seconds. After 4 seconds, ALL OFF/LOCK will glow red,

indicating that the cooktop controls are in the lockout position.

To Unlock Cooktop: Touch and hold the ALL OFF/LOCK keypad
for 4 seconds.

I am getting an F7 error on my LG LRG30355ST Range. The panel is responsive to the Cancel/Off and Start buttons, but none of the other buttons appear to work. The burners still work, but I am unable to...


It means the keypad detects an electrical short. It's the equivalent of holding your finger to a number button for more than 40 seconds. It will cause an error. You have to remove/clean/repair whatever is causing the short. Try cleaning the front keypad with isopropyl alcohol. If it doesn't work, remove the front panel with a 1/4" socket wrench and T15 torx screw driver. Remove the LED/clock board with philips driver. Then clean the entire back of the keypad panel with ispropyl alcohol. Allow the alcohol to dry completely or use a hair dryer to dry the alcohol completely before plugging in stove again. I did this with my stove and it fixed the problem.

My Frigidaire microwave display reads "LOCK" and it will not work. What should I do?


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 it is still locked or goes into lock mode by itself, the "clear" key on your keypad may be shorting.

Here's how the child lock works on model FMV145:

Child Lock-Out
You may lock the control panel to prevent
the microwave from being accidentally
started or used by children.
To lock or unlock the controls, press and
hold CLEAR/OFF for about three
seconds. When the control panel is
locked, an "L" will be displayed to the
extreme right.

You can find your manual here.

If you think the controller or keypad may have failed, see us here or order parts here.

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

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


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.

LG LMVM2055SB over the range microwave keys not working


Is it possible someone may have sprayed cleaner directly onto the keypad area?

This causes moisture to get into the keypad and sometimes onto the control board.

This could mean that they control panel frame with keypad (membrane switch) would need to be replaced.

Can you give more details on the cleaning?

It may possibly be locked, in which case holding the enter/start pad for over 3 seconds may unlock it.

Otherwise, you may want to call Maytag / Amana at:
