How do I unlock the control panel of a ge microwave oven?


See the link

Many microwave control panels can be locked to prevent accidental use or access by children.
There are two different ways to lock the control panel:
  1. Press and hold the CLEAR/OFF pad for 3 seconds. The display will show "LOCK" and then revert to the time of day. A small "L" will appear in the corner of the display as a reminder that the control panel is locked. If anyone tries to use the microwave, the display will show "LOCK".
  2. On some models, press and hold the 5 and 7 pads simultaneously for 3 seconds.

To unlock the control: Repeat the procedure which was used to lock the control. (Press and hold the CLEAR/OFF pad for about 3 seconds or hold the 5 and 7 pad simultaneously for 3 seconds.)

Control keys are locked


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

To lock the control: press and hold the clear/off pad for about 3 seconds. The display will show "lock" and will then return to the time of day. A small "L" will be displayed to remind you that the control panel is locked. The display will show "lock" if anyone tries to use the microwave. On some models, you press and hold the "5" and "7" pads simultaneously for three seconds.

To unlock the control: press and hold the clear/off pad for about three seconds. Or on some models you press and hold the "5" and "7" simultaneously for three seconds

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.

Nothin works on my key pad


Here are lock / unlock schemes for three recent Sanyo models:

- Press and hold Stop/Cancel for 3 seconds
- Press and hold Stop/Reset for 3 seconds or so
- Press Stop/Clear five times

Hopefully one of those will work.

If none of these work for you, contact Sanyo Service Customer Service.

Unlock kenmore 665.69682992


This is a Whirlpool model, so one of these methods should work:

- Press and hold the Cancel button for 3 or 4 seconds.

- Touch and hold START/ENTER for 4 seconds.

- Touch and hold START for 5 seconds

If none of these works, contact Sears.

Try unplugging it for 15 to 20 sec. Still won't work? Try unplugging longer.

GE Microwave DEMO MODE


I just bought a condo with a GE Spacemaker Mod# JVM1860SD
that was stuck in demo mode. (This mod# has been replaced by the JVM1870*** series)

I called GE twice in two days, and finally got someone who had the solution (and it worked):

  1. Unplug the unit for at least 30 seconds
  2. Plug the unit back in DO NOT SET THE CLOCK
  3. While the unit is still "booting up" and the display screen is lit with gibberish, HOLD THE POWER LEVEL AND THE ZERO BUTTON for at least 5 seconds.
  4. After 5 seconds, the screen will display "demo mode off"
It messed me up at first because the power level and zero pads don't beep when the unit is booting up... but it worked.
- Again, this is for the GE Spacemaker 1860-1870 series models only - The women who gave me instructions said she had different demo mode unlock methods for the 1400, 3670, 2070 etc... so call GE if you have a different model.
P.S. my model looks like this - the keypad setup is key http://products.geappliances.com/ApplProducts/Dispatcher?REQUEST=SPECPAGE&SKU=JVM1870SK&SITEID=GEA
