Electrolux's Sensor is a semi-conductor device that detects the
vapor (moisture and humidity) emitted from the food as it heats. The
sensor adjusts the cooking times and power level for various foods
and quantities.
Using Sensor Settings:
1. After microwave oven is plugged in, wait 2 minutes before using
2. Be sure the exterior of the cooking container and the interior of
the microwave oven are dry. Wipe off any moisture with a dry
cloth or paper towel.
3. The microwave oven works with foods at normal storage
temperature. For example, popcorn would be at room
4. Any SENSOR COOKING selection can be programmed with
More or Less Time Adjustment. See page 17.
5. More or less food than the quantity listed in the chart should be
cooked following the guidelines in any microwave cookbook.
6. During the fi rst part of SENSOR COOKING, food name will
appear on the display. Do not open the microwave oven door
or touch Clear/Off during this part of the cooking cycle. The
measurement of vapor will be interrupted. If this occurs, an
error message will appear. To continue cooking, touch the
Clear/Off pad and cook manually.
When the sensor detects the vapor emitted from the food,
remainder of cooking time will appear. Door may be opened
when remaining cooking time appears on the display. At this
time, you may stir or season food, as desired.
7. If the sensor does not detect vapor properly when popping
popcorn, the microwave oven will turn off, and the correct time
of day will be displayed. If the sensor does not detect vapor
properly when cooking other foods, ERROR will be displayed,
and the microwave oven will turn off.
8. Check food for temperature after cooking. If additional time is
needed, continue to cook manually.
9. Each food has a cooking hint. Touch HELP pad when the HELP
indicator is lighted in the display.
10. To use SENSOR COOKING, touch pad within 3 minutes after
cooking, closing the door, touching the Clear/Off pad or during

Special Features
Place in dish or casserole slightly larger than amount to be reheated. Flatten, if possible. Cover with lid,
plastic wrap or wax paper. Use covers such as plastic wrap or lids with larger quantities of more dense
foods such as stews. After reheating, stir well, if possible. Foods should be very hot. If not, continue to
heat with variable power and time. After stirring, re-cover and allow to stand 2 to 3 minutes.
Ideal for reheating stirrable casseroles, such as macaroni and cheese or stew. Cover with vented plastic
wrap or wax paper. Touch Sensor Reheat twice and at signal, stir casserole and rotate dish. Touch
START. At end, stir and allow to stand, covered, for 5 to 10 minutes.
Ideal for reheating non-stirrable casseroles, such as lasagna. Cover with vented plastic wrap or wax
paper. Touch Sensor Reheat three times and at signal, rotate dish. Touch START. At end, allow to
stand, covered, for 10 to 15 minutes.
in the SENSOR COOKING CHART for these foods.
1. Casserole lid.
2. Plastic wrap: Use plastic wrap recommended for microwave
cooking. Cover dish loosely; allow approximately 1/2 inch to
remain uncovered to allow steam to escape. Plastic wrap should
not touch food.
3. Wax paper: Cover dish completely; fold excess wrap under dish
to secure. If dish is wider than paper, overlap two pieces at least
one inch to cover.
Be careful when removing any covering to allow steam to escape
away from you.
You can cook many foods by touching just one pad. You don't need
to calculate cooking time or power level.
• Suppose you want to reheat canned chili.
1. Touch Sensor Reheat pad. When sensor detects the vapor
emitted from the food, remainder of reheating time will appear.
2. At end, follow the directions in the display.
NOTE: The Turntable On/Off, Sensor Reheat, Popcorn, Fresh
Veggie and Poultry settings have 2 choices. Follow directions in the
Interactive Display to choose desired option.
The rack allows several foods to be cooked or reheated at one time.
However, for the best cooking and reheating, use the turntable on
and the automatic features.
When using the rack, set time and power level manually. Allow
plenty of space around and between the dishes. Pay close attention
to the cooking/reheating progress. Reposition the foods and reverse
them from rack to turntable at least once during any cooking or
reheating time. Using a lower power level will assist in better
cooking/reheating uniformity.
• Storing the rack in the microwave oven when not in use.
• Popping popcorn on the turntable with the rack in the microwave
• Using any browning dish on the rack.
• Using special features with the rack. Special features are
designed to be used with foods only on the revolving turntable.
• Cooking directly on the rack—use microwave-safe cookware.
