Undoing a Childproof Lock on a Microwave

I accidentally childproof locked a second-hand Panasonic 1100 watt microwave. Does anyone know what buttons I have to press to unlock it?

Try Googling "Panasonic (with model number) 1100 Watt Microwave Instructions". If you can't find a link with information there then contact Panasonic directly.

Dont know the model number of your appliance, but found this answer online:

Usually you press Start 3 times to turn the child lock on, and press Stop/Reset 3 times to turn it off.

Try switching off and unplugging the microwave from the electricity, then plug it back in again. Usually factory settings are restored, and your childproof lock should be off.

Thanks to everyone. I used the "knock 3 times on the window" hint. My husband thanks you, my daughter thanks you, my popcorn thanks you and I thank you.

My husband is ill and sometimes locks our microwave. I found that I can pull the plug and that resets it. G.
