    Thank you I had no idea it locked until I accidentally locked it. I guess it's a child safety feature

Thank you for this...my coworkers & I were like "how are we going to use this?!!" I said Google it! glad to know others had the same issue. The button is actually the "stop/reset", not cancel. FYI. Thanks!

Microwave is locked up

Most microwave ovens are like computers, they lock up and ocassionally need to be "re-booted", or re-powered. 1. Simply unplug the oven, then wait about 10 seconds, plug it back, and check to see if has unlocked itself. If not, continually press the clear or reset button. If that doesn't help, you'll have to get the model number and manufacturer from the label inside the microwave oven.

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

LG LMVM2055SB over the range microwave keys not working

Is it possible someone may have sprayed cleaner directly onto the keypad area?

This causes moisture to get into the keypad and sometimes onto the control board.

This could mean that they control panel frame with keypad (membrane switch) would need to be replaced.

Can you give more details on the cleaning?
