I have a whirlpool stove with an electronic control panel that is flat by the surface. So is accessible to animals & children.

the controls can be turned on by my cat walking on it or a child touching the control panel.

It does have a lock but it is the same as the controls. the cat just stepped on it and turned the control lock off.

the lock can not be activated until all the surfaces are no longer hot. So it remains active for quite some time after you use it.l

Sometimes the lock does not work. Probably because I am constantly using it. When I shut the braker off it does reset.

So I have to continually turn the baker off when I leave the room our go out of the house.

Imagine my surprise the first I walked into the kitchen and the burner was glowing.

I have contacted the manufacturer when I first brought it home and again recently when the lock was not working. They said both times pretty much TOUGH LUCK. said I should have researched the stove before I bought it. Suggested I call the appliance store. Of course they also said sorry no returns.

You would have thought the salesman would have brought it to the attention of anyone who was interested in purchasing it that it might be a problem if you have kids or animals.

I spent a lot of money on the stove.
