Is the microwave oven wired into a live circuit with the proper voltage?
(See the Installation Instructions.)

• The door is not firmly closed and latched.
• You did not touch EASY MINUTE START.
• You did not follow directions exactly.
• An operation that was programmed earlier is still running.
• You have not entered numbers after touching MICRO COOK.
• The electric supply to your home or wall outlets is low or
lower than normal. Your electric company can tell you if the
line voltage is low. Your electrician or service technician can
tell you if the outlet voltage is too low.
• The cook power is not at the recommended setting.
• Larger amounts of food need longer cooking times.
• The turntable is not correctly in place. Make sure the turntable
is correct-side up and is sitting securely on center shaft.

technician for repair. Cooking without the turntable can give
you poor results.
