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.

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.

* 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.
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.
