For list of preset programs, see the Quick Reference Guide provided with your model.
Manual Cooking/Stage Cooking
Touch COOK TIME, touch number pads to enter time, touch
COOK POWER (if not 100%), touch number pads to enter power
level (10-90), then touch the Start control.
If programming additional stages, enter the cook time and cook
power of each before touching the Start control.
Sensor Cooking
A sensor in the microwave oven detects moisture released from
food as it heats, and adjusts the cooking time accordingly.
Make sure microwave oven has been plugged in for at least
3 minutes. Use microwave-safe dish with loose-fitting lid, or cover
microwave-safe dish with plastic wrap and vent. For optimal
performance, wait at least 30 minutes after convection cooking or
grilling (on some models) before sensor cooking.
General Cleaning
IMPORTANT: Before cleaning, make sure all controls are off and
the microwave oven is cool. Always follow label instructions on
cleaning products.
To avoid damage to the microwave oven caused by arcing due to
soil buildup, keep cavity, microwave inlet cover, cooking rack
supports, and area where the door touches the frame clean.
Clean with mild soap, water and a soft cloth or sponge, or as
indicated below.
Grease filters: mild soap and water or dishwasher.
Door and exterior: mild soap and water, or glass cleaner
applied to paper towel.
Control panel: sponge or soft cloth and water.
Stainless steel (on some models): mild soap and water, then
rinse with clean water and dry with soft cloth, or use stainless
steel cleaner.
Glide tray: mild soap and water or dishwasher.
Rack(s): mild soap, water and washcloth. Dishwasher cleaning
is not recommended.

Microwave Oven Use

Add More Time
At the end of any cycle, "ADD MORE TIME 0:00" appears in the
display. Enter the additional time, if desired, and start the
microwave oven. The cook power and/or temperature (on models
with convection) for all non-sensor cycles will be the same as in the
finished cycle, but may be changed. If Add More Time is used after
a sensor cycle, the cook power will be 100%, but may be changed.
Warm Hold (on some models)
Do not let food sit in oven more than one hour before
or after cooking.
Doing so can result in food poisoning or sickness.
Hot cooked food can be kept warm in the microwave oven. The
Warm Hold function uses 10% cook power. Warm Hold can be
used by itself or can be programmed to follow a cooking cycle.
Opening the door during Warm Hold will cancel the function.

To reinstall, place end of the filter into the opening opposite
the tab area, swing up the other end, and slide it toward the

Charcoal filter: The charcoal filter is behind the vent grille at the
top front of the microwave oven. The charcoal filter cannot be
cleaned, and should be replaced about every 6 months, or as

vent grille, tilt the grille forward, lift it out, and remove filter. To
reinstall, place the filter into its slotted area – wire mesh side
up, replace vent grille, and secure with screws.

grille at the top front of the microwave oven, under the bulb
