Display

When power is first supplied to the microwave oven, "0:00" will
appear in the display. If the "0:00" appears in the display at any
other time, a power failure has occurred. Reset the clock if
needed. See "Clock."
When the microwave oven is in use, the display will show cook
time remaining. When the microwave oven is not in use, the
display will show the time of day (if the clock is set) or Timer
countdown (if the Timer is set).
The START control begins any function. If cooking is interrupted
by opening the door, touching START will resume the cycle.
NOTE: To avoid unintentional operation of the microwave oven,
a cooking function cannot be started if the microwave oven door
has been closed for about 5 minutes. The word "door" will
appear in the display until the door is opened and closed.

Add 30 Seconds

The (START) ADD 30 SEC control automatically starts the
microwave oven at 100% power for 30 seconds, and adds
30 seconds of cook time with each additional touch of the
control.
Time may be added to any manual cooking cycle in 30-second
increments, at the current power level, by touching (START) ADD
30 SEC during cooking.
NOTE: To avoid unintentional operation of the microwave oven,
a cooking function cannot be started if the microwave oven door
has been closed for about 5 minutes. The word "door" will
appear in the display until the door is opened and closed.

Stop Cancel

The STOP CANCEL control clears any incorrect command, and
cancels any program during cooking. It will not erase the time of
day.
The microwave oven will also turn off when the door is opened.
Close the door and touch START to resume the cycle.
The STOP CANCEL control is also used to lock and unlock the
control panel. See "Control Lock."
Tones are audible signals that cannot be turned off, and they
indicate the following:
One tone
Valid entry
Control lock activated or deactivated
End of stage in multistage cooking
Three tones
End of Timer countdown
Five tones
End of cycle
Reminder, repeat each minute after the end-of-cycle tones
