and Cooktop Lights
The microwave oven's hood controls, on the lower, left side of the
microwave oven (see "Parts and Features") operate the vent fan
and cooktop lights.
The vent fan has 3 regular speeds: high, medium and low. The
vent fan also has a max speed, which is the highest speed.
To protect the microwave oven, the vent fan will automatically
turn on at high speed if the temperature from the cooking surface
below gets too hot. It may stay on for up to 1 hour to cool the
microwave oven. When this occurs, the vent fan cannot be
turned off. After the microwave oven has cooled, the vent fan will
automatically turn off.
NOTE: For optimal TRUCAPTURE
turn on the vent fan before using the cooking surface below. This
will maximize steam capture.

The progress bar is a visual picture of the estimated running time
of a sensor cooking cycle. It will appear at the beginning of
sensor cooking functions. A horizontal bar appears below the
word "Sensing," and shows progress by the darkening of the bar
left to right. Some time after the progress bar appears, it may be
replaced by "Maximum Time Remaining" indicator and the
estimated remaining time, which may fluctuate often. When
sensing is finished, "Time Remaining" will appear with the actual
remaining cook time.
