the outside with mild soap and water; rinse and dry with
a soft cloth. Do not use any type of household or abrasive
cleaner.
DOOR
Wipe the window on both sides with a soft cloth to remove
any spills or spatters. Metal parts will be easier to maintain
if wiped frequently with a soft cloth. Avoid the use of spray
and other harsh cleaners as they may stain, streak or dull
the door surface.
EASY CARE
TM
STAINLESS
STEEL
(SOME MODELS)
Your microwave oven finish may be made with Easy Care
TM
Stainless Steel (some models). Clean the stainless with warm
soapy water using a clean sponge or cloth. Rinse with clean
water and dry with a soft clean cloth. DO NOT use ANY
store bought cleaners like Stainless Steel cleaners or any
other types of cleaners containing any abrasive, chlorides,
chlorines or ammonia. It is recommended to use mild dish
soap and water or a 50/50 solution of water and vinegar.
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.
INTERIOR
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.
WAVEGUIDE
COVER
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. Builbup splashes may
overheat and cause smoke or possibly catch fire. DO NOT
REMOVE THE WAVEGUIDE COVER.
ODOR REMOVAL
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.
TURNTABLE/TURNTABLE
SUPPORT
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.
GREASE FILTERS
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.
