Power Level
The power level may be entered or changed immediately after entering the time for Cook Time or Time Defrost.
The power level may also be changed during time countdown.
1. First, follow directions for Cook Time or Time
Defrost.

Here are some examples of uses for various power
levels:

2. Press the Power Level button.

High 10: )LVKEDFRQYHJHWDEOHVKHDWLQJOLTXLGV

3. Turn the dial clockwise to increase and
counterclockwise to decrease the power level. Press
the dial to enter.

Med-High 7: Gentle cooking of meat and poultry;
baking casseroles and reheating.

4. Press the Start/Pause button to start cooking.
Variable power levels add flexibility to microwave
cooking. The power levels on the microwave oven can
be compared to the surface units on a range. Each
power level gives you microwave energy a certain
percent of the time. Power Level 7 is microwave energy
70% of the time. Power Level 3 is energy 30% of the
time. Most cooking will be done on High (Power Level
10) which gives you 100% power. Power Level 10 will

Medium 5: Slow cooking and tenderizing for stews and
less tender cuts of meat.
Low 2 or 3: Defrosting; simmering; delicate sauces.
Warm 1: .HHSLQJIRRGZDUPVRIWHQLQJEXWWHU

A lower setting will cook more evenly and need less
stirring or rotating of the food. Some foods may have
better flavor, texture or appearance if one of the lower
settings is used. Use a lower power level when cooking
foods that have a tendency to boil over, such as
scalloped potatoes.

Power Level 3 - the defrost cycle. If microwave energy
did not cycle off, the outside of the food would cook
before the inside was defrosted.

Humidity Sensor
What happens when using the Sensor Features:
The Sensor Features detect the increasing humidity
released during cooking. The oven automatically adjusts
the cooking time to various types and amounts of food.
Do not use the Sensor Features twice in succession
on the same food portion—it may result in severely
overcooked or burnt food. If food is undercooked after the
countdown, use Cook Time for additional cooking time.
NOTE: Sensor features will not operate when the oven
is hot. If one of the sensor cooking buttons is pressed
when the temperature inside the oven is greater than

USING YOUR OVEN: Microwave Terms

Microwave Terms
Term

Definition

Arcing

Arcing is the microwave term for sparks in the oven. Arcing is caused by:
Ŷmetal or foil touching the side of the oven.
Ŷfoil that is not molded to food (upturned edges act like antennas).
Ŷmetal such as twist-ties, poultry pins, gold-rimmed dishes.
Ŷrecycled paper towels containing small metal pieces.
Ŷplates or dishes with a metallic trim or glaze with a metallic sheen.

Covering

Covers hold in moisture, allow for more even heating and reduce cooking time. Venting plastic wrap or
covering with wax paper allows excess steam to escape.

Shielding

In a regular oven, you shield chicken breasts or baked foods to prevent over-browning. When
microwaving, you use small strips of foil to shield thin parts, such as the tips of wings and legs on
poultry, which would cook before larger parts.

Standing Time

When you cook with regular ovens, foods such as roasts or cakes are allowed to stand to finish
cooking or to set. Standing time is especially important in microwave cooking. Note that a microwaved
cake is not placed on a cooling rack.

Venting

After covering a dish with plastic wrap, you vent the plastic wrap by turning back one corner so excess
steam can escape.

Helpful Hints
An occasional thorough wiping with a solution of baking
soda and water keeps the inside fresh.
Be certain the oven control is turned off before
cleaning any part of this oven.

How to Clean the Inside
Walls, Floor, Inside Window, Metal and Plastic Parts
on the Door
Some spatters can be removed with a paper towel;
RWKHUVPD\UHTXLUHDGDPSFORWK5HPRYHJUHDV\
spatters with a sudsy cloth, then rinse with a damp cloth.
Do not use abrasive cleaners or sharp utensils on oven
walls.
Never use a commercial oven
cleaner on any part of your
microwave.

Removable Turntable and Turntable Support
To prevent breakage, do not
place the turntable into water
just after cooking. Wash it
carefully in warm, sudsy water
or in the dishwasher. The
turntable and support can be
broken if dropped. Remember, do not operate the oven
in the microwave mode without the turntable and support
seated and in place.

How to Clean the Outside
We recommend against using cleaners with ammonia
or alcohol, as they can damage the appearance of
the microwave oven. If you choose to use a common
household cleaner, first apply the cleaner directly to a
clean cloth, then wipe the soiled area.
Case
Clean the outside of the microwave with a sudsy cloth.
Rinse and then dry. Wipe the window clean with a damp
cloth.
Control Panel
Wipe with a damp cloth. Dry thoroughly. Do not use
cleaning sprays, large amounts of soap and water,
abrasives or sharp objects on the panel—they can
damage it. Some paper towels can also scratch the
control panel.
Door Panel
Before cleaning the front door panel, make sure you
know what type of panel you have. Refer to the eighth
digit of the model number. “S” is stainless steel, “L” is
CleanSteel and “B”, “W” or “C” are plastic colors.

49-40779

Stainless Steel (on some models)
The stainless steel panel can be cleaned with Stainless
Steel Magic or a similar product using a clean, soft cloth.
Apply stainless cleaner carefully to avoid the surrounding
plastic parts. Do not use appliance wax, polish, bleach or
products containing chlorine on Stainless Steel finishes.

CARE AND CLEANING: Replacing LED Lamp

Care and Cleaning

Plastic Color Panels
Use a clean, soft, lightly dampened cloth, then dry

Door Seal
It’s important to keep the area clean where the door
seals against the microwave. Use only mild, nonabrasive detergents applied with a clean sponge or soft
cloth. Rinse well.
Bottom
Clean off the grease and dust on the bottom often. Use a
solution of warm water and detergent.
