Your microwave oven has a sensor that detects
the humidity released by the food. The amount
of humidity detected tells the oven how long to
cook or heat your food. The sensor is used by
3 special functions: AUTO SENSOR COOK,
AUTO SENSOR REHEAT, and AUTO SENSOR
POPCORN. The simple instructions for these
functions are on the following pages.
NOTES:
If you want to cook by entering a time and cook
power, see "Microwave cooking guide" in the
"Cooking Guide" section.
The oven should be plugged in at least 5 minutes
before sensor cooking.
Room temperature should not exceed 95°F (35°C).
Be sure the exterior of the cooking container and
the interior of the oven are dry. Wipe off each with
a paper towel.
The oven will not generate microwave energy for
approximately 28 seconds at the beginning of the
sensor cooking cycle.
When covering foods, be sure to leave an opening
big enough for moisture to escape so that the
sensor can determine cooking or reheating time.
