The childproof lock is used to lock the control panel on the Convection Steam Oven (CSO). Childproof lock can be turned on through the User Settings.

  • The childproof lock prevents commands from being entered inadvertently.
  • The childproof lock does not lock the door. The oven door cannot be locked.
  • See also, Child Safety Oven Door Lock.

The instructions below apply to earlier CSO models with a knob. For newer CSO models with touch controls, refer to Convection Steam Oven (Touch Control) User Settings.

To turn on the childproof lock:

  1. With the oven off, press OK (control knob) and turn the knob to USER SETTINGS, then press OK.
  2. Turn the knob to scroll through the options, until "Childproof lock" appears, then press OK.
  3. Press OK to select child lock on or off.

To turn off the childproof lock, follow the steps above and select Off instead of On.

  • The lock needs to be disabled using the steps below in order to turn off.

To use the oven by temporarily disabling the lock:

  1. Press and hold OFF.
  2. While holding OFF, press OK and the control panel will unlock.
  3. The childproof lock will automatically reactivate 10 minutes after the CSO has been turned off.

If the Convection Steam Oven does not come out of child lock using the steps above, turn the home circuit breaker to the unit off for 10 seconds then back on again. Retest the unit operation.

  • If resetting the power at the circuit breaker does not work, service is necessary to expertly diagnose and repair the product. Contact Factory Certified Service to schedule an appointment for repair.
