Do you have a full model number located on a sticker around the front frame of the oven and can be seen if you open the door or remove the drawer below the door if there is one so that I can better assist you?

To unlock the control panel on this model, open the door first. Next, press and hold the "3" button for 5 seconds and that should unlock the control panel. If the door is not open, it will not work.

i have done all of those things and i still have no luck with it releasing the unlock panel
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 7 months ago

Then something is wrong with your control board. Try to unplug the oven and try again. If it still won't unlock, the control board (display board) will need to be replaced because it has failed for some reason.

i could have told you that, there is no other way to correct this or over ride it so i can access the oven portion. So what your saying is i need a entire new mother board for this oven
that will not happen again as i replaced it once before
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 7 months ago

I wish I could control what fails on your oven, but I have no more control than you do. If your board failed--it failed. You can not over ride the control lock. And no, you couldn't have told me you need a new board or this question would have never been asked. You may have suspected it was bad, but you needed me to tell you there are no other options. I understand your frustration but please don't take it out on me.

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?
