Solutions to Common Problems

The power goes off before the cook time has elapsed -
• If there has been a power interruption, remove the plug
from the outlet; wait 10 seconds, then plug the
microwave in again. If there was a power outage, the
time indicator in the display will show 00:00.
• Reset the clock and any cooking instructions.
• Reset the household circuit breaker or replace any blown
fuses.
• Press the STOP/cancel pad twice and attempt to re-
enter cooking instructions.
• Plug a different appliance into the power outlet. If the
other appliance will not operate, have a qualified
electrician repair the outlet.
• Plug the microwave into a different power outlet.
Food is cooking too slowy -
• Make sure the oven is on a seperate 20 amp circuit line.
Operating another appliance on the same circuit can
cause a voltage drop. If necessary, move the microwave
to its own circuit.
You see sparks or arcing -
• Remove any metallic utensils, cookware or metal ties
from the oven cavity. If using aluminum foil, use only
narrow strips and allow at least one inch between the foil
and the interior oven walls.
The turntable makes noises or sticks -
• Clean the turntable, roller ring and oven cavity bottom.
• Make sure the turntable and roller ring are positioned
correctly.
Using your microwave causes TV or radio interference -
• This is similar to the interference caused by other small
appliances, such as hair dryers. Move your microwave
further away from other appliances, like your TV or radio.
Please note : If the oven is set to cook for more than 25
minutes at 100% power level, it will automatically adjust
itself to a 70% power level after 25 minutes to avoid
overcooking.
