When I attempt to enter anything with the keypad the display says "locked". Is there some way to unlock it.


Many microwaves have children locks. Of course they are for safety reasons. they are for tricking the little kids from playing with the big people toys.

Process A
To Turn the Control Lockout Feature On or Off:
  1. Make sure the microwave oven and timer are off.
  2. Press and hold the CANCEL keypad for 3 seconds.
  3. 2 tones will sound and "LOC" or a padlock icon will be displayed (indicating the control is LOCKED).
  4. Repeat to unlock. Again, 2 tones will sound.
Process B
To Turn the Control Lockout Feature On or Off:
  1. Make sure the microwave oven and timer are off.
  2. Press and hold the START keypad for 5 seconds.
  3. 2 tones will sound and "L" will be displayed (indicating the control is LOCKED)
  4. Repeat to unlock. Again, 2 tones will sound.
Hope this helps?

Samsung microwave displays press 1-4...


The SE indicates a short in the keypad membrane, but to cure this! the whole keypad control board should be changed if effort to resolve is decided, I would also suggest checking the pricing.

Khhc2090s trouble


The sensor errors are probably just from opening the door and interrupting the sensor cook cycle.

By the way, you should always press "Stop" before opening the door of a running microwave. Otherwise, the door switches will prematurely fail.

I would first check the door switches and their mounts. See this help file.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

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.

No buttons on my keypad will work but the "power" button, when I unplug and plug back in when screen lights up in red it says "lock" PLEASE HELP ME! we payed alot of money for this...


Which brand and model of microwave do you have? It sounds like the child lock has been enabled. Different brands often have different ways to toggle the child lock on and off. Press the Cancel button first (just in case). Then press and hold the Start button (on the Kenmore in my kitchen) for 3+ seconds. Other brands it's the 0 on the keypad that has to be held for 5+ seconds.

My microwaves have a small padlock on the appropriate key.

I hope this helps.

(there are a few brands that have the child lock accessed through a secondary menu. Please add a comment with your microwave brand/model. Then I will check the specifics for your brand.)

My child locked the microwave pad. How do I unlock it?


The operation manual is available for free download from Samsung at this site: http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200305/20030529145700437_MW5592.pdf
The answer to how to lock and unlock is on page 15 of the manual. It's instructions are: 1. Press the '0' button, the display will show: "PRESS 1- DEMO 2-CHILD LOCK"
2. Press the "2" button, the display will show: "PRESS START"
3. Press the start button and the display will show "LOCK" then returns to the time of day.
At this point the microwave can't be used. To unlock, just repeat steps 1-3.
Hope this helps

The computer died. Not much you can do with it. After ten years it doesn't owe you anything.

Of course you could bypass the whole timer with a toggle switch if you were MacGyver.

This is likely the CHILD LOCK feature of your microwave whish is engaged.

Try holding down the CLEAR / OFF button or the RESET button for 5 seconds in order to disable it.

Since you did not provide a model number, you will have to check your own User's Manual for the exact detailed instructions if required.

Good luck.

My microwave reads loc and nothing works


This is from the 1100ST manual:

CHILD SAFETY LOCK

The safety lock prevents unwanted oven operation such as by small children.

To set, press and hold STOP/CLEAR for 3 seconds, LOCK indicator lights.
To cancel, press and hold STOP/CLEAR for 3 seconds, LOCK indicator goes off.
