IMPORTANT: Before cleaning, make sure all controls are off and the microwave oven is cool. Always follow label instructions on
cleaning products.
Soap, water and a soft cloth or sponge are suggested unless otherwise noted.
GREASE FILTERS
Do not use ammonia or corrosive cleaning agents such as lye-
based oven cleaners.
Hot water and mild detergent:
Soak filters, then scrub and swish to remove embedded dirt
and grease. Rinse well and shake to dry.
Dishwasher:
Wash separately, not with dirty dishes, because food can be
trapped in the filters.
NOTE: Some discoloration of the filters may occur after
cleaning them in the dishwasher. This is normal, and will not
affect the performance of the grease filters.
MICROWAVE OVEN CAVITY
The gray finish inside the microwave oven cavity is a durable,
nonstick coating that makes soils easier to remove.
To avoid damage to the microwave oven cavity, do not use metal
or sharp utensils or scrapers, soap-filled scouring pads, abrasive
cleaners, steel-wool pads, gritty washcloths or some recycled
paper towels. If damage occurs, special touch-up paint may be
applied. See "Assistance or Service" to order.
The area where the microwave oven door and frame touch when
closed should be kept clean.
Average soil
Mild, nonabrasive soaps and detergents:
Rinse with clean water and dry with soft, lint-free cloth.
Heavy soil
Mild, nonabrasive soaps and detergents:
Heat 1 cup (250 mL) of water for 2 to 5 minutes in microwave
oven. Steam will soften soil. Rinse with clean water and dry
with soft, lint-free cloth.
Odors
Lemon juice or vinegar:
Heat 1 cup (250 mL) of water with 1 tbs (15 mL) of either
lemon juice or vinegar for 2 to 5 minutes in microwave oven.
Microwave Inlet Cover
To avoid arcing and damage to the microwave oven, the
microwave inlet cover (see "Parts and Features") should be kept
clean.
Wipe with wet cloth.
