Justin :

Did you place the pad of your finger on the lock for more than five seconds?

Justin :

If you just touched it, that won't do.

Justin :

You must touch and hold the button for several seconds.

Justin :

I'm showing your status as standing by, yet you haven't replied. This is live chat. I'll step out of chat and we'll talk once you reply.

JACUSTOMER-0qyvjpjv- :

Thank you so much for your help-there is nothing that tells you that you must hold the lock button down for 5 plus seconds. Great News! the cooktop is fully operational and I have been able to turn the cook top heating elements. Great job!

Justin :

Awesome

Justin :

Glad to hear I helped.

Justin :

Sorry I stepped out but I figured you stepped away from the computer for awhile. I just helped a few other folks though :)

JACUSTOMER-0qyvjpjv- :

I will now hit the accept button-no problem I had a sick wife to take care of-your the best!
