Before Requesting Service ALL THESE THINGS ARE NORMAL: The oven causes interference with my TV. Steam accumulates on the oven door and warm air comes from the oven vents. I accidentally ran my microwave oven without any food in it. There are humming and clicking noises from my oven when I cook by Combination.
Care of Your Microwave Oven BEFORE CLEANING: Unplug at socket of the oven. If impossible, leave oven door open to prevent oven from accidentally turning on. Inside of the oven: Wipe with a damp cloth. Mild detergent may be used if the oven gets very dirty.
