The outside surface is precoated steel and plastic. Clean the
outside with mild soap and water; rinse and dry with a soft cloth.
Do not use any type of household or abrasive cleaner.
Wipe the window on both sides with a damp cloth to remove any
spills or spatters. Metal parts will be easier to maintain if wiped
frequently with a damp cloth. Avoid the use of spray and other
harsh cleaners as they may stain, streak or dull the door surface.
TOUCH CONTROL PANEL
Care should be taken in cleaning the touch control panel. If the
control panel becomes soiled, open the microwave oven door
before cleaning. Wipe the panel with a cloth dampened slightly
with water only. Dry with a soft cloth. Do not scrub or use any sort
of chemical cleaners. Close door and touch Clear/Off.
Cleaning is easy because little heat is generated to the interior
surfaces; therefore, there is no baking and setting of spills or
spattering. To clean the interior surfaces, wipe with a soft cloth and
warm water. DO NOT USE ABRASIVE OR HARSH CLEANERS
OR SCOURING PADS. For heavier soil, use baking soda or a mild
soap; rinse thoroughly with hot water. The rack can be cleaned
with hot soapy water, rinsed and dried.
The waveguide cover is located on the ceiling in the microwave
oven cavity. It is made from mica so requires special care. Keep
the waveguide cover clean to assure good microwave oven
performance. Carefully wipe with a damp cloth any food spatters
from the surface of the cover immediately after they occur. Built-up
splashes may overheat and cause smoke or possibly catch fire.
DO NOT REMOVE THE WAVEGUIDE COVER.
Occasionally, a cooking odor may remain in the microwave oven.
To remove, combine 1 cup water, grated peel and juice of 1 lemon
and several whole cloves in a 2-cup glass measuring cup. Boil for
several minutes using 100% power. Allow to set in microwave
oven until cool. Wipe interior with a soft cloth.
Cleaning and Care
The turntable and turntable support can be removed for easy
cleaning. Wash them in mild, sudsy water; for stubborn stains use
a mild cleanser and non-abrasive scouring sponge. They are also
dishwasher-proof. Use upper rack of dishwasher. The turntable
motor shaft is not sealed, so excess water or spills should be
wiped up immediately.
Filters should be cleaned at least once a month. Never operate the
fan or microwave oven without the filters in place.
1. Pull down slightly on the tab toward the front of the microwave
oven and remove the filter. Repeat for the other filter.
2. Soak the filters in a sink or dish pan filled with hot water and
detergent. DO NOT use ammonia or other alkali; they will react
with the filter material and darken it.
3. Agitate and scrub with a brush to remove embedded dirt.
4. Rinse thoroughly and shake dry.
5. Replace by fitting the filter back into the opening.
