  1. Ensure the oven or timer is not in operation prior to locking or unlocking the keypad. The control pad cannot be locked or unlocked if the oven is heated above 400 degrees Fahrenheit or the oven is in current use.

  2. Press the "Start" pad and hold for 5 seconds. "Control Locked" will appear on the display.
