IMPORTANT: Before cleaning, make sure all controls are off and the microwave oven is cool. Always follow label instructions on
cleaning products.
Soap, water and a soft cloth or sponge are suggested unless otherwise noted.
MICROWAVE OVEN CAVITY
To avoid damage to the microwave oven cavity, do not use soap-
filled scouring pads, abrasive cleaners, steel-wool pads, gritty
washcloths or some recycled paper towels.
To avoid damage to stainless steel models, rub in direction of
grain.
The area where the microwave oven door and frame touch when
closed should be kept clean.
Average soil
Mild, nonabrasive soaps and detergents:
Rinse with clean water and dry with soft, lint-free cloth.
Heavy soil
Mild, nonabrasive soaps and detergents:
Heat 1 cup (250 mL) of water for 2 to 5 minutes in microwave
oven. Steam will soften soil. Rinse with clean water and dry
with soft, lint-free cloth.

Lemon juice or vinegar:
Heat 1 cup (250 mL) of water with 1 tbs (15 mL) of either
lemon juice or vinegar for 2 to 5 minutes in microwave oven.
Microwave Inlet Cover
To avoid arcing and microwave oven damage, the microwave
inlet cover (see "Parts and Features") should be kept clean.

MICROWAVE OVEN DOOR AND EXTERIOR
The area where the microwave oven door and frame touch when
closed should be kept clean.
Mild, nonabrasive soaps and detergents:

Try the solutions suggested here first in order to avoid the cost of an unnecessary service call.
Nothing will operate
Has a household fuse blown, or has a circuit breaker
tripped?
Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker. If the problem
continues, call an electrician.
Microwave oven will not operate
Is the magnetron working properly?
Try to heat 1 cup (250 mL) of cold water for 2 minutes at
100% cooking power. If water does not heat, try the steps in
the bullets below. If microwave oven still does not operate,
call for service. See "Assistance or Service" section.
