Oh dear. I don't want to sound too despondent, but our success with the child lock problem has been quite poor.

The sound you hear is probably the child lock relay (its the illusive child lock relay).

Have a look at this post by Rogerborg, who had a child lock problem :cry:

You could try changing the relay, but its not very accessible or guaranteed to fix it.
