Customer: MDB7749SBW2 ABOUT 4 YEARS OLD
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: YES OR BUY A NEW ONE
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

To remove the control lock, all you should need to do is press and hold the Control Lock button to the right od the "delay hours" button for 5 seconds and that should remove the control lock. If that doesn't work, then your touch control panel has just failed and needs to be replaced so below is a link to that part.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
