Good morning my microwave has just got a message saying locked

Good morning my microwave has just got a message saying locked and i cannot use it.
Can you post the model number of the appliance please?
It should be on a label in the door recess

To remove child lock, press the stop/cancel key 3 times, quickly.

If you press the start key 3 times, it enables child lock.

If it won't unlock, I'm afraid it suggests an electronic board fault.

Hope this helps
Let me know how it goes or if you need more help

Its un locked but now i get H97 and still cant use it
H97 is a serious fault.

Unplug the machine, wait 5 minutes then plug in again.

what happens?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Same thing happens,its under 1 year old as well
You'll need to contact Panasonic (or your retailer if you prefer) to have them come and repair it.

H95 is a magnetron/Inverter board fault.

It's not something you'll repair by pressing buttons.

Sorry, not good news or a simple fix.

Give them a call and they'll sort it out for you.

Hope this helps
