I'm assuming that you don't have the manual. The unlocking procedure should be in the manual. Models with a child lock-out safety feature should have a "Help" button that will lead to an un-lock procedure or a special button that you need to hold for 5 seconds. Try holding down the "0" button or "Start" button for 5 seconds.

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.

My microwave oven locked and when I press the clear/off for 3 seconds, it unlocks. After one minute it locks itself again. I can't get it to stay unlocked.


The same thing that Locked it will Unlock it. It is a child proof feature. To unlock it:
  • hold the Clear/Off button down for 3 seconds, until it beeps and the screen will read "Unlocked"

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.)

It may be that the child lock has been operated accidentally, although if that were the case the POPCORN button should not work.

If the lock is on you should see an L in the display.

If the problem is the safely child lock you have to press and hold the
CLEAR/OFF button for about three seconds.

Locked ge spacemaker xl1800


This sounds like the "child lockout" feature is on. Does the door open, but the microwave won't work. Press the "clear/off" button for 3 seconds or so if this is what you're experiencing. If not, I apologize for wasting your time.

Microwave NN V622m locked


The owner's manual for the NNV623 is here, and it says to turn the Child Lock off, press the Stop/Cancel pad three times.

To turn on the Child Lock, press Start three times.
