Sensor Modes
The sensor is a semi-conductor
device that detects
the vapor (moisture and humidity) emitted from the
food as it heats. The sensor adjusts the cooking times
and power level for various foods and quantities.
Using Sensor Modes:
1. After oven is plugged in, wait 2 minutes before
using Sensor Modes.
2. Be sure the exterior of the cooking container
and the interior of the oven are dry. Wipe off any
moisture with a dry cloth or paper towel.
3. The oven works with foods at normal storage
temperature. For example, popcorn would be at
room temperature.
4. Any Sensor Modes selection
can be programmed with More or less time adjustment.
See page 22.
5. More or less food than the quantity listed in the
chart should be cooked following the guidelines
in any microwave cookbook.
6. During the first part of any sensor cooking or
reheating, food name will appear on the display.
Do not open the oven door or touch STOP/CLEAR
during this part of the cycle. The measurement of
vapor will be interrupted. If this occurs, an error
message will appear. To continue cooking, touch
the STOP/CLEAR pad and cook manua00y.
When the sensor detects the vapor emitted from
the food, remainder of cooking time wilt appear.
Door may be opened when remaining cooking
time appears on the display. At this time, you may
stir or season food, as desired.
7. Except for popcorn,
if the sensor does not
detect vapor properly when cooking other foods,
ERROR wilt be displayed.
8. Check food for temperature after cooking. If
additional time is needed, continue to cook
manually.
9. Each food has a cooking hint. Touch user pref

Cleaning and Care
Disconnect
the power cord before cleaning or leave the door open to inactivate the
oven during cmeaning.
Exterior
Waveguide
Clean the outside with mild soap and water; rinse
and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use any type of
household or abrasive cleaner.
The waveguide cover is made from mica so requires
special care. Keep the waveguide cover clean to
assure good oven performance. Carefully wipe with a
damp cloth any food spatters from the surface of the
cover immediately after they occur: Built-up splashes
may overheat and cause smoke or possibly catch
fire. Do not remove the waveguide cover.
Door
Wipe the window on both sides with a damp cloth
to remove any spills or spatters. Metal parts will
be easier to maintain if wiped frequently with a
damp cloth. Avoid tile use of spray and other harsh
cleaners as they may stain, streak or dull the door
surface.
Touch
Control
Panel
Care should be taken in cleaning the touch control
panel. If the control panel becomes soiled, open
the Microwave Oven door before cleaning. Wipe
the panel with a cloth dampened slightly with water
only. Dry with a soft cloth. Do not scrub or use any
sort of chemical cleaners. Close door and touch
STOP/CLEAR.
interior
Cleaning is easy because little heat is generated to
the interior surfaces; therefore, there is no baking
and setting of spills or spattering. To clean the interior
surfaces, wipe with a soft cloth and warm water. DO
NOT USE ABRASIVE OR HARSH CLEANERS OR
SCOURING PADS. For heavier soil, use baking soda
or a mild soap; rinse thoroughly with hot water. The
rack can be cleaned with hot soapy water, rinsed and
dried. NEVER SPRAY OVEN CLEANERS DIRECTLY
ONTO ANY PART OF THE MICROWAVE OVEN.
Odor
Cover
Removal
Occasionally, a cooking odor may remain in the oven.
To remove, combine 1 cup water, grated peel and
juice of 1 lemon and several whole cloves in a 2-cup
glass measuring cup. Boil for several minutes using
100% power. Allow to set in oven until cool. Wipe
interior with a soft cloth.
Turntable/Turntable
Support/Racks
The turntable, turntable support and racks can be
removed for easy cleaning. Wash them in mild,
sudsy water; for stubborn stains use a mild cleanser
and a non-abrasive scouring sponge. The}, are also
dishwasher-proof.
Use top rack of dishwasher for
turntable support.
Foods with high acidity, such as tomatoes or lemons,
will cause the porcelain enamel turntable to discolor.
Do not cook highly acidic foods directly on the
turntable; if spills occur, wipe up immediately.
The turntable motor shaft is not sealed, so excess
water or spills should not be allowed to stand in
this area.
