Using the Pause key

If at anytime your microwave recipe would require that the
food be turned or require you to stop the microwave during
the cooking process you may do so after starting the
microwave with the START/Pause pad.
To pause the microwave during cooking:
1. Touch START/Pause pad once.
2. Touch START/Pause pad again to
resume cooking.
Adding cook time (Plus 30 sec.)
This time-saving feature will let you quickly add 30 seconds
to any cook time already set when cooking at a 100%
power level. This feature may only be used while cooking
and with cook time remaining. Each press of this pad will
add 30 seconds to the cook time.
Example: to add 1 minute of cook time at the default
power level of 100%:
Press Plus 30 sec. pad twice.
