Customer Question

my husband is almost blind and he touched several numbers. Now my whirlpool microwave says "control locked". I can't get it to start or do anything.
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: 2013
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: i just thought there was a code of something like that to unlock it.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: I don't have the own'ers manual. I guess it would tell me how to unlock it.

Welcome to JustAnswer. First, try removing the power by unplugging the cord for 5 minutes, to see if the control board will reset its program, and function properly. If this does not solve the problem, please let me know.

Thank you for choosing JustAnswer.
