SOURCE: Child lock

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

F7 means that the control panel is not getting feedback from the Switched Mode Power Supply (high-voltage inverter).

This could be due to a problem with the inverter or the control unit / circuit board, but it appears to be the latter in most cases.

We repair microwave control boards for customers nationwide with our guaranteed $39.95 service.

We have full details, plus critical safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site. You'll find a link to our site in our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful.

You may reply back with your brand and model number if you'd like us to look into this further, or feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

SOURCE: Galanz Microwave Oven - Unable to disable child lock

Galanz's website seems to be useless. I tried finding information but kept being told "no data available." So while I can't tell you where to find the manual, here's something to try. Most microwaves get put into lock by pressing and holding one of the buttons for longer than normal, or by pressing one of the buttons several times in a row. Some ovens use the TIMER button. It won't be one of the number keys, but one of the function buttons. So start with a button, press and hold it for at least 5 seconds before you let go. If nothing happens then try another button. If that doesn't solve the problem, then try pressing each function key several times before moving on to the next one. If that still doesn't get it going, maybe a store in your area that sells Galanz will take a look at the book for you. The process should be the same for any similar model.

Check contacts to control board first.

If control board is OK then test the high voltage capacitor,the rectifier diode.or the magnetron. If all this are fine, test the control board.

Thediode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must bealloweddischarge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, evenifpower is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting theirtwocontacts.
Before replacing the magnetron test also the control board.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.



All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts.

I have a whirlpool microwave WM1107ADWC and I want to turn off the Child lock. How can I do it? I don't have kids and i want to save time when I use my microwave. Thanks


Child locks on microwaves act as a safety feature to prevent children from getting harmed or from causing other possible damage. The child safety lock does not lock access to the microwave; it simply prevents the microwave from being operated. To remove the child lock press the Stop button three times.

Lock the microwaveIf you wish to re-lock the microwave, perform a similar procedure. Instead of pressing the Stop button you need to press the Start button. Press the Start button three consecutive times to lock the microwave. This enables the child lock once again and prevents the microwave from being operated.
check this video also. Many Whirlpool microwaves are made by LG. between these two you should get it.

I have to slam the door very hard for it to close correctly what would cause this problem?


Incorrectly adjusted door catch. They have movement on them to allow a tight seal due to the microwave capability.

I just found the specs and instructions on it.

Error message on a whirlpool microwave of LOCK


Look carefully for a button which has small print under it that says something like "Lock - hold 3 sec". Press and hold that key for 3 or more seconds to unlock the keyboard. It's a child-lock feature.

Velos doesn't microwave


If you've had it for less than a year, it would still be under warranty and Whirlpool will fix it free.

Child lock on and don't know how to turn it off


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.

The manual says to turn it on or off, hold the Cancel button for 5 seconds until you hear the tones.

If you still have trouble after that, the surge may have done some damage, even though the unit has built-in surge protection.
