To pause the microwave during cooking:

1. Touch START/Pause pad once.

2. Touch START/Pause pad again to resume cooking.

Adding cook time (Plus 30 sec.)

This time-savingfeature will let you quickly add 30 seconds to any cook time already set when cooking at a 100% power level. This feature may only be used while cooking and with cook time remaining. Each press of this pad will add 30 seconds to the cook time.

Example: to add 1 minute of cook time at the default power level of 100%:

Press Plus 30 sec. pad twice.

Setting Defrost (by Weight)

Example: to defrost 1lb. of food with the default power level and cook time determined automatically:

1. Press Defrost pad once.0.0 will appear in the display.

2. Use the numeric pads to input weight of food to defrost in pounds (10 = 1lb.) You may enter any weight from 0.1 to 6.0lbs.

3. Press START pad.

When defrosting has finished you will hear beeps and "Good" will display.

Note: The weight amount must be a valid entry for this feature to start. A valid weight entry is 0.1 to 6.0 pounds.

11

Manual Operation

Defrosting tips

When using the defrost weight feature, the weight entered should always be pounds (valid entries are from 0.1 to 6.0 pounds).

Use both defrost weightand defrost timefeatures for raw food items only. Defrosting gives best results when food to be thawed is a minimum of 0°F (taken directly from a true freezer). If the food has been stored in a refrigerator-freezer that does not maintain a temperature of 5° F or below, always program a lower food weight or lower cook time to prevent cooking the food.

If the frozen food is stored outside the freezer for up to 20 minutes, enter a reduced cook time or weight.

The shape of the package will alter the defrosting time. Shallow rectangular food packets defrost more quickly than a deep frozen block of food.

Separate pieces as they begin to defrost. Separated frozen pieces of food defrost better.

Shield warm areas of food with small pieces of foil if they start to become warm.

You may use small pieces of aluminum foil to shield food items like chicken wings, leg tips and fish tails, but do not allow the foil to touch the oven cavity walls when defrosting.

Defrosting suggestions for meats

Suggestions for getting the best results

To help you achieve the best possible results from your microwave oven, read the following suggestions below;

Storage temperature

Foods taken from the freezer or refrigerator take longer to cook than the same foods would at room temperature.

Size

Small pieces of food cook faster than large ones. Pieces similar in size and shape will cook more evenly when cooked together. For more even results, reduce the power levels when cooking large pieces of food.

Natural moisture

Very moist foods cook more evenly because microwave energy heats water molecules very efficiently.

Stirring

Stir foods such as casseroles and vegetable from the outside to the center to distribute the heat more evenly. This will allow the food to cook faster. Constant stirring is not necessary.

Turn over items

Turn over foods such as pork chops, roasts or whole cauliflower halfway through the cook time. This will help to expose all sides equally to microwave energy.

Food placement

Place delicate areas of food items, such as asparagus tips, toward the center of the turntable tray.

Food arrangement

Arrange unevenly shaped foods, such as chicken pieces or salmon, with the thicker or meatier parts toward the outside of the turntable tray.

Let the food stand

After removing the food from the microwave, cover the food with foil or a casserole lid and let it stand to finish cooking. This will help the food finish in the center and avoids overcooking the out edges, The length of stand time depends on the density and surface area of the food items.

Wrapping in paper towels or waxed paper

Sandwiches and many other food types containing prebaked bread should be wrapped prior to placing in the microwave to help prevent the food items fro drying out while heating.

Cooking meat in your microwave

Be sure to place prepared meats on a microwave-saferoasting rack in amicrowave-safedish. Start cooking the meat fat side down and if necessary, use narrow strips of aluminum foil to shield any bone tips or thin meat areas. After cooking, check the temperature in several places before letting the meat stand the recommended time. Please note that the temperatures in the following charts are temperatures at removal time; the temperature will rise during the standing period.

Cooking Charts

Cooking vegetables in your microwave

Vegetables should be washed just before cooking. Rarely is extra water needed. If dense vegetables such as potatoes, carrots and greens are being cooked, add about ¼ cup of water.

Small vegetables (sliced carrots, peas, lima beans, etc.) will cook faster than larger vegetables.

Whole vegetables, such as potatoes, acorn squash or corn on the cob, should be arranged in a circle on the turntable before cooking. The will cook more evenly if turned over halfway through cooking.

Always place vegetables like asparagus and broccoli with the stem ends pointing towards the edge of the dish and the tips toward the center.

When cooking cut vegetables, always cover the dish with a lid or vented microwavable plastic wrap.

Whole, unpeeled vegetables such as potatoes, squash, eggplant, etc., should have their skin pricked in several locations before cooking to prevent them from bursting.

For more even cooking, stir or rearrange whole vegetables halfway through the cook time.

Most of the time, the denser the food the longer the required standing time. For example, a baked potato should stand for 5 minutes before serving, while a dish of peas may be served immediately.

Cooking seafood in your microwave

Place fish on a microwave-saferoasting rack in amicrowave-safedish. Be sure to always cook fish until it flakes easily with a fork. Use a tight cover to steam fish; a lighter cover of wax paper or paper towel provides less steaming. And be sure not to overcook fish; check it for doneness at a minimum cooking time before cooking longer.

Care & Cleaning

Cleaning suggestions

For best performance and for safety reasons, keep the oven clean inside and outside. Take special care to keep the inner door panel and oven fron frame free of food and grease build-up.

Never use rough scouring powder or pads on the microwave. Wipe the microwave oven inside and out with a soft cloth and and warm (not hot) mild detergent solution. Then rinse and wipe completely dry.

Wipe spatters immediately with a wet paper towel, especially after cooking greasy foods like chicken or bacon.

Clean your microwave oven weekly or more often, if needed.

Follow these instructions to clean and care for your microwave oven:

Keep the inside (cavity) of the oven clean. Food particles and spilled liquids can stick to the oven walls, causing the oven to work less efficiently.

Wipe up spills immediately. Use a damp, clean cloth and mild soap. DO NOT use harsh detergents or abrasive cleaners.

To help loosen baked-onfood particles or liquids, heat 2 cups of water (add the juice of 1 lemon if you desire to keep the oven fresh smelling) in a 4 cup measuring glass at High power for 5 minutes or until boiling. Let stand in oven cavity for 1 or 2 minutes.

Remove the glass turntable tray from the oven when cleaning the oven cavity or tray. To prevent the glass turntable from breaking, handle with care and do not put it in water immediately after cooking. Wash the turntable tray in warm sudsy water or in the dishwasher.

Clean the outside surface of the microwave with soap and a clean damp cloth. Dry with a clean soft cloth. To prevent damage to the operating parts of the oven, do not let water seep into any vents or openings.

Wash the oven door window with very mild soap and water. Be sure to use a soft clean cloth to avoid scratching.

If steam accumulates inside or outside the oven door, wipe with a soft cloth. Steam can accumulate when operating the oven in high humidity and in no way indicates microwave leakage.

Never operate the oven without food in the oven cavity; this can damage the magnetron tube or glass tray. You may wish to leave a cup of water standing inside the oven when it is not in use to prevent damage if the oven is accidentally turned on.

Before you call a repair person for your microwave, check the list below for possible easy solutions to some common problems.

Neither the microwave’s display or oven operates -

Properly insert the plug into a grounded power outlet.

If the outlet is controlled by a wall switch, make sure the wall switch is turned on.

Remove the plug from the outlet, wait 10 seconds, then plug the microwave in again.

Reset the household circuit breaker or replace any blown fuses.

Plug a different appliance into the power outlet. If the other appliance will not operate, have a qualified electrician repair the outlet.

Plug the microwave into a different power outlet.

The oven display works, but the oven will not operate -

Make sure the oven door is closed securely and completely.

Check to see if packing material or other materials are stuck to the door seal.

Check for damage to the oven door.

Press the STOP/cancel pad twice and attempt to reenter cooking instructions.

Plug a different appliance into the power outlet. If the other appliance will not operate, have a qualified electrician repair the outlet.

Plug the microwave into a different power outlet.

The power goes off before the cook time has elapsed -

If there has been a power interruption, remove the plug from the outlet; wait 10 seconds, then plug the microwave in again. If there was a power outage, the time indicator in the display will show 00:00.

Reset the clock and any cooking instructions.

Reset the household circuit breaker or replace any blown fuses.

Press the STOP/cancel pad twice and attempt to reenter cooking instructions.

Plug a different appliance into the power outlet. If the other appliance will not operate, have a qualified electrician repair the outlet.

Plug the microwave into a different power outlet.

Food is cooking too slowy -

Make sure the oven is on a seperate 15 amp circuit line. Operating another appliance on the same circuit can cause a voltage drop. If necessary, move the microwave to its own circuit.

You see sparks or arcing -

Remove any metallic utensils, cookware or metal ties from the oven cavity. If using aluminum foil, use only narrow strips and allow at least one inch between the foil and the interior oven walls.

The turntable makes noises or sticks -

Clean the turntable, roller ring and oven cavity bottom.

Make sure the turntable and roller ring are positioned correctly.

Using your microwave causes TV or radio interference -

This is similar to the interference caused by other small appliances, such as hair dryers. Move your microwave further away from other appliances, like your TV or radio.

Please note : If the oven is set to cook for more than 25 minutes at 100% power level, it will automatically adjust itself to a 70% power level after 25 minutes to avoid overcooking.
