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 14.
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 first 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

Covering Foods:
Some foods work best when covered. Use the cover recommended
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.
Touch Reheat pad.
