Questions and Answers

No. If you remove or turn over the turntable, you
will get poor cooking results. Dishes used in your
oven must fit on the turntable.
You can use a rack only if the rack is supplied with
your microwave oven. If you use a rack not sup-
plied with the microwave oven, you can get poor
cooking performance and/or arcing.
You can use aluminum foil for shielding (use small,
flat pieces), small skewers, and shallow foil trays
(if tray is not taller than
with food to absorb microwave energy). Never
allow metal to touch walls or door. (For more
information, see "Using aluminum foil" in the
"Cooking Guide" section.)
Yes. The turntable rotates clockwise or counter-
clockwise, depending on the rotation of the motor
when the cooking cycle begins.
This appearance is normal and does not affect the
operation of your oven.
You may hear the sound of the transformer when
the magnetron tube cycles on.
As the food becomes hot it will conduct the heat to
the dish. Be prepared to use hot pads to remove
food after cooking.
"Standing time" means that food should be
removed from the oven and covered for additional
time to allow it to finish cooking. This frees the
oven for other cooking.
Steam is normally produced during cooking. The
microwave oven has been designed to vent this
steam out the vent.
Yes. Pop packaged microwave popcorn following
manufacturer's guidelines or use the preset AUTO
SENSOR POPCORN pad. Do not use regular
paper bags. Use the "listening test" by stopping
the oven as soon as the popping slows to a "pop"
every 1 or 2 seconds. Do not repop unpopped
kernels. Do not pop popcorn in glass cookware.
