I suggest unplugging it but you shouldnt have to ,check your manual but for the time being just unplug or hit the breaker in your electrical panel in your house (turn off then back on) if that is easier than pulling it out

I was cleaning fingerprints off the key pad and maybe hit the child lock none of the buttons work at all...i tried the 3 seconds for the stop cancel and that didnt work

There are different ways to lock the keys on different microwaves. I cannot find a manual for this unit, so the only other thing I can think for you to do is to unplug the microwave overnight (if you don't need it right away) and see if it will reset when you plug it back in. I'm so sorry I cannot find a better answer

I think I have engaged the child lock and I cant turn the microwave on.

When you hit Start 3 times, it puts the child lock on. You have to hit the cancel/stop button 3 times to take it off.

I held CANCEL key too long and now the microwave is Locked. How do I unlock it?

Press and hold the Clear/Off button for about 3 seconds again. This toggles the Child Lock.

I hope this helps.

(I used the model given above to check if the toggle command was the same or different from the lock command. If your microwave is a different model, try pressing the CANCEL button for about 3 seconds.)
