The cook time and cooking power can be changed at any time
after touching START by repeating the above steps.
A sensor in the microwave oven detects humidity released from
the food as it heats, and adjusts the cook time accordingly.
Many sensor cycles require the covering of foods. Microwave-
safe containers or steamers with loose-fitting
lids are
recommended.
The loose-fitting
lid allows enough steam to
escape to be detected by the sensor. When covering foods with
plastic wrap, be sure to leave a large enough vent opening to
allow the steam to escape.
NOTES:
The microwave oven should be plugged in for at least
3 minutes.
The microwave oven cavity and the exterior of the cooking
container should be dry.
The room temperature
should not exceed 95°F (35°C).
If the door is opened during a sensor cycle, sensing will stop
and the program will be canceled.
The microwave oven can be set to cook at different cooking
powers for various lengths of time, up to 3 stages.
Sensor cooking cannot be done in stages.

the first stage. See "Microwave

reminder tones.
