Second opinion] hi there! I have a GE gas cooktop and it has a control lock feature. I used it yesterday while i was cleaning it, but know it won't unlock. it will let me turn the knob, but the indicator light stays on and when i try to turn on another burner, it makes a horrible buzzing sound. I've tried turning the breaker on and off, and I tried waiting overnight. Nothing will work and all the repair companies are closed today (including GE customer care). I have guests coming to stay with us tonight and I really need to be able to cook dinner! It is a 30" GE cafe series. Purchased October 2016.
