Its believe its running 6.2 something. 
I have the instructions below, but I believe that defaults the sw, I would rather try to keep the config if I could

  1. Connect switch to local serial console;
  2. Cold boot your device (power of the device, wait a minute, power on the device);
  3. In the very beginning of the boot process press Space to enter boot menu;
  4. Follow this procedure to remove any configuration and passwords:
    1. Press “1” to select primary boot image;
    2. Press “k” to erase current configuration;
    3. Press “d” to load default configuration;
    4. Press “f” to load switch with reset config;
  5. The result of this procedure is a switch with default login: admin and an empty password.

Hi Jimmy, there is no way to perform a password recovery on S24e3 and keep the switch configuration.

The BootROM options clear all user/admin accounts + switch configuration to default.
