How to set control lock on a countertop microwave

Is the Control Lock set? 

The Control Lock disables the control panel pads to avoid unintended use of the microwave oven.

To Lock/Unlock Control:

  • The microwave oven must be off.

  • Touch and hold CANCEL for about 3 seconds, until the tone sounds and the control lock icon appears in the display.  Repeat to unlock.

  • The control lock icon will remain lit in the display until the control is unlocked.

  • If any control pad is touched while the control is locked, there will be no response from the control.
