Microwave Oven Use
Manual Cooking
Touch number keypads to enter time, touch POWER (if not 100%),
touch number keypads to enter power level (10-90), then touch the
Start control.
Sensor Cooking
A sensor in the microwave oven detects moisture released from
food as it heats and adjusts the cooking time accordingly.
Make sure microwave oven has been plugged in for at least
1 minute. Use microwave-safe dish with loose-fitting lid or cover
microwave-safe dish with plastic wrap, and vent. For optimal
performance, wait at least 30 minutes after convection cooking
or grilling (on some models) before sensor cooking.
Standby Mode
When no functions are working (12-hour clock is displayed or if
the clock has not been set), oven will switch to Standby Power
mode and dim the LCD brightness after 2 minutes. Press any
button or open/close the door, and display will return to the normal
Turntable may be turned off for manual cooking only. This is
helpful when cooking with plates that are bigger than the turntable
or when cooking with plates that are side by side. Turntable
cannot be turned off during preset or sensor (on some models)
