I have a Beko side by side model:GNE 114610x. The red lock

This answer was rated:

I have a Beko side by side model:GNE 114610x. The red lock light has come on - and all the keys are 'fixed'. You cannot unlock the lock. Have not made any changes to the settings for months!
If you have the red lock light lit then the child lock is turned on.
To turn this off you need to press and hold the button above the picture of the lock and the button below it.
Press and hold them 2 buttons in for several seconds and this will turn the child lock off from there.
Let me know how it goes.

Hi Daniel,
As I said, holding the 2 buttons does not work -- nothing happens!
Thanks, Michael

Hi Daniel, have just tried holding them for 30 seconds -- and it worked! All now normal.
Thanks very much, Michael
Nice one glad to hear that sorted it.
Bit strange how it took that long as its usually only several seconds it needs for this.
But hopefully that will be fine now. If you could rate the answer if you haven't already that would be great.
