IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Read all instructions before using this appliance.
When using electrical appliances, basic safety
precautions should be followed, including the
following:
WARNING–To reduce the risk of
burns, electric shock, fire, injury to persons
or exposure to excessive microwave energy:
• Read and follow the specific Precautions to
Avoid Possible Exposure to Excessive Microwave
Energy section on the previous page.
• This appliance must be grounded. Connect only
to properly grounded outlet. See the Grounding
Instructions section in the back of this guide.
• Use this appliance only for its intended use as
described in this guide. Do not use corrosive
chemicals or vapors in this appliance. This
microwave/convection oven is specifically
designed to heat or cook food, and is not
intended for laboratory or industrial use.
• For best operation, plug this appliance into
its own electrical outlet, to prevent flickering
of lights, blowing of fuse or tripping of circuit
breaker.
• Do not mount this appliance over a sink.
Install or locate this appliance only in
accordance with the provided Installation
Instructions.
• Do not cover or block any openings on the
appliance.
• Do not store this appliance outdoors. Do not
use this product near water—for example, in a wet
basement, near a swimming pool or near a sink.
• This microwave /convection oven is not
approved or tested for marine use.
• Do not store anything directly on top of the
microwave/convection oven surface when the
oven is in operation.
• Do not immerse power cord or plug in water.
• Keep power cord away from heated surfaces.
• Do not let power cord hang over edge of table
or counter.
4
• Do not operate this appliance if it has a
damaged power cord or plug, if it is not
working properly, or if it has been damaged
or dropped.
• See door surface cleaning instructions in the Care
and Cleaning section(s) of this guide.
• This appliance should be serviced only by
qualified service personnel. Contact nearest
authorized service facility for examination,
repair or adjustment.
• As with any appliance, close supervision is
necessary when used by children.
• To reduce the risk of fire in the oven cavity:
—Do not overcook food. Carefully attend
appliance if paper, plastic or other combustible
materials are placed inside the oven to facilitate
cooking.
—Remove wire twist-ties and metal handles
from paper or plastic bags before placing
them in the oven.
—Do not use your microwave/convection oven
to dry newspapers.
—Do not use recycled paper products. Recycled
paper towels, napkins and waxed paper can
contain metal flecks which may cause arcing
or ignite. Paper products containing nylon or
nylon filaments should be avoided, as they
may also ignite.
—Do not pop popcorn in your microwave/
convection oven unless in a special microwave
popcorn accessory or unless you use popcorn
labeled for use in microwave ovens.
—Do not overcook potatoes. They could
dehydrate and catch fire, causing damage to
your oven.
—Do not operate the oven in microwave or
combination modes while empty to avoid
damage to the oven and the danger of fire.
If by accident the oven should run empty a
minute or two, no harm is done. However, try to
avoid operating the oven empty at all times—it
saves energy and prolongs the life of the oven.
—Do not use the oven for storage purposes. Do
not leave paper products, cooking utensils or
food in the oven when not in use.
—If materials inside oven should ignite, keep
oven door closed, turn oven off, and disconnect
power cord, or shut off power at the fuse or
circuit breaker panel.
• When using the convection or combination
cooking functions, both the outside and inside of
the oven will become hot. Always use hot pads to
remove containers of food and accessories such as
the metal accessory rack and temperature probe.
• Oversized food or oversized metal cookware
should not be used in a microwave/convection
oven because they increase the risk of electric
shock and could cause a fire.
• Do not clean with metal scouring pads. Pieces
can burn off the pad and touch electrical parts
involving risk of electric shock.
• Do not use paper products when the
microwave/convection oven is operated in
the convection or combination mode.
• Don’t defrost frozen beverages in narrow
necked bottles (especially carbonated beverages).
Even if the container is opened, pressure can build
up. This can cause the container to burst, possibly
resulting in injury.
• Use foil only as directed in this guide. TV
dinners may be microwaved in foil trays less than
3/4″ high; remove the top foil cover and return the
tray to the box. When using foil in the microwave
oven, keep the foil at least 1 inch away from
sides of the oven.
• Do not cover the shelf or any other part
of the oven with metal foil. This will cause
overheating of the microwave/convection oven.
• Cookware may become hot because
of heat transferred from the heated
food. Pot holders may be needed to
handle the cookware.
• Sometimes, the oven floor and walls can
become too hot to touch. Be careful touching the
floor and walls during and after cooking.
• Foods cooked in liquids (such as pasta) may tend
to boil over more rapidly than foods containing
less moisture. Should this occur, refer to the Care
and Cleaning section(s) for instructions on how to
clean the inside of the oven.
• Thermometer—Do not use regular cooking
or oven thermometers when cooking by
microwave or combination. The metal and
mercury in these thermometers could cause
“arcing” and possible damage to the oven. Do
not use a thermometer in food you are
microwaving unless the thermometer is designed
or recommended for use in the microwave oven.
• Remove the temperature probe from the oven
when not using it to cook with. If you leave the
probe inside the oven without inserting it in food
or liquid, and turn on microwave energy, it can
create electrical arcing in the oven, damage oven
walls and damage the temperature probe.
• Plastic cookware—Plastic cookware designed
for microwave cooking is very useful, but should
be used carefully. Even microwave-safe plastic
may not be as tolerant of overcooking conditions
as are glass or ceramic materials and may soften
or char if subjected to short periods of
overcooking. In longer exposures to overcooking,
the food and cookware could ignite. For these
reasons: 1) Use microwave-safe plastics only and
use them in strict compliance with the cookware
manufacturer’s recommendations. 2) Do not
subject empty cookware to microwaving. 3) Do
not permit children to use plastic cookware
without complete supervision.
• When cooking pork, follow the directions
exactly and always cook the meat to an internal
temperature of at least 170°F. This assures that, in
the remote possibility that trichina may be present
in the meat, it will be killed and meat will be safe
to eat.
• Do not boil eggs in a microwave oven. Pressure
will build up inside egg yolk and will cause it to
burst, possibly resulting in injury.
(continued next page)

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
(continued)
• Foods with unbroken outer ‘‘skin’’
such as potatoes, sausages, tomatoes,
apples, chicken livers and other giblets,
and egg yolks (see previous caution)
should be pierced to allow steam to
escape during cooking.
SAFETY FACT—Superheated water.
Microwaved water and other liquids do not always
bubble when they reach the boiling point. They can
actually get superheated and not bubble at all.
Superheated liquid will bubble up out of the cup
when it is moved or when something like a spoon
or tea bag is put into it.
To prevent this from happening and causing injury,
do not heat any liquid for more than 2 minutes
per cup. After heating, let the cup stand in the
microwave for 30 seconds before moving it or
putting anything into it.
• Spontaneous boiling—Under certain special
circumstances, liquids may start to boil during or
shortly after removal from the microwave oven. To
prevent burns from splashing liquid, we recommend
the following: before removing the container from
the oven, allow it to stand in the oven for 30 to 40
seconds after the oven has shut off. Do not boil
liquids in narrow-necked containers such as soft
drink bottles, wine flasks and especially narrownecked coffee cups. Even if the container is
opened, excessive steam can build up and cause it to
burst or overflow.
• Some products such as whole eggs and sealed
containers—for example, closed glass jars—
will explode and should not be heated in this
microwave oven. Such use of the microwave/
convection oven could result in injury.
• Hot foods and steam can cause
burns. Be careful when opening any
containers of hot food, including
popcorn bags, cooking pouches and
boxes. To prevent possible injury,
direct steam away from hands and face.
• Avoid heating baby food in glass jars, even with
the lid off. Make sure all infant food is thoroughly
cooked. Stir food to distribute the heat evenly. Be
careful to prevent scalding when warming formula
or breast milk. The container may feel cooler than
the milk really is. Always test the milk before
feeding the baby.
• Not all plastic wrap is suitable for use in
microwave ovens. Check the package for
proper use.
• ‘‘Boilable’’ cooking pouches and tightly closed
plastic bags should be slit, pierced or vented as
directed by package. If they are not, plastic could
burst during or immediately after cooking, possibly
resulting in injury. Also, plastic storage containers
should be at least partially uncovered because they
form a tight seal. When cooking with containers
tightly covered with plastic wrap, remove covering
carefully and direct steam away from hands
and face.
• Use of the shelf accessory.
—Use pot holders when handling the shelf and
cookware. They will be hot.
—Never use the shelf for microwave-only cooking.
Remove the shelf from the oven when microwaveonly cooking.
—Always place the shelf on the floor of the oven for
convection and combination cooking.

MICROWAVING TIPS
• Make sure all cookware used in your microwave
oven is suitable for microwaving. Most glass
casseroles, cooking dishes, measuring cups, custard
cups, pottery or china dinnerware which does not
have metallic trim or glaze with a metallic sheen
can be used. Some cookware is labeled ‘‘suitable for
microwaving.’’
• If you are not
sure if a dish is
microwave-safe,
use this test:
Place in the oven
both the dish you
are testing and a
glass measuring
cup filled with one
cup of water—set the measuring cup either in or
next to the dish. Microwave 1 minute at high. If the
dish heats, it should not be used for microwaving. If
the dish remains cool and only the water in the cup
heats, then the dish is microwave-safe.
• Paper towels, waxed paper and plastic wrap
can be used to cover dishes in order to retain
moisture and prevent spattering. Be sure to vent
plastic wrap so steam can escape.
• Some microwaved foods require stirring, rotating
or rearranging.
• Steam builds up pressure in foods which are
tightly covered by a skin or membrane. Pierce
potatoes, egg yolks and chicken livers to prevent
bursting.
If you use a meat thermometer while cooking, make
sure it is safe for use in microwave ovens.

Variable power levels add flexibility to your microwave
cooking. The power levels on your microwave oven
can be compared to the surface units on a range. High
(Power Level 10) or full power is the fastest way to
cook and gives you 100% power. 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.
A high setting (10) will cook faster but may need
additional attention such as frequent stirring, rotating
or turning over. Most of your cooking will be done
on High (Power Level 10). A lower setting will cook
more evenly and with less attention given to stirring
or rotating the food. Some foods may have better
flavor, texture or appearance if one of the lower
settings is used. You may wish to use a lower power
level when cooking foods that have a tendency to
boil over, such as scalloped potatoes.
Rest periods (when the microwave energy cycles off)
give time for the food to “equalize” or transfer heat
to the inside of the food. An example of this is shown
with 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.
Here are some examples of uses for various power
levels:
POWER LEVEL
High 10
Med-High 7
Medium 5
Low 3

BEST USES
Fish, bacon, vegetables,
boiling liquids.
Gentle cooking of meat and
poultry; baking casseroles
and reheating.
Slow cooking and tenderizing
such as stews and less tender
cuts of meat.
Defrosting without cooking;
simmering; delicate sauces.
Keeping food warm without
overcooking; softening butter.

WHAT YOUR OVEN CAN DO
Cooking with your new oven offers a wide variety
of food preparation options. Microwave cooking
uses very short, high frequency radio waves. The
movement of the microwaves through the food
generates heat and cooks most foods faster than
regular methods, while retaining their natural
texture and moisture. Microwave cooking heats
food directly, not the cookware or the interior of
the oven. Reheating is easy and defrosting is
particularly convenient because less time is
spent in food preparation.
Convection cooking constantly circulates heated air
around the food, creating even browning and sealedin flavor by the constant motion of hot air over the
food surfaces.
Your new oven also offers the option of combination
cooking, using microwave energy along with
convection cooking. You cook with speed and
accuracy, while browning and crisping to perfection.
You can use microwave cooking, convection cooking
or combination cooking to cook by time. Simply
preset the length of cooking time desired and your
oven turns off automatically. Or you can cook by
temperature, by these methods, using the temperature
probe to determine the doneness by the internal
temperature of the food. This method takes the
guesswork out of cooking, shutting the oven off
automatically when the food reaches the desired
temperature.
The Microwave Sensor Cooking Features (Sensor
Cook, Sensor Reheat and Sensor Popcorn) do your
microwave cooking for you. They are easy and
convenient—just follow the step-by-step instructions
in this manual. A sensor detects steam from the food
and automatically adjusts cooking time and power
level for best results.
Combination Roast uses alternating microwave and
convection to roast meats to perfection.
Auto Defrost automatically sets the defrosting time
and power levels for you. Enter the food weight in
pounds and tenths of a pound and touch the START
pad. The oven calculates the defrosting time and
changes power levels during defrosting to give even
defrosting results.
The Delay Start/Reminder feature lets you program
the oven to start cooking at a desired time, even if
you’re not at home. The Reminder feature can be used
like an alarm clock.
The following guide shows at a glance the difference
between microwave, convection and combination
cooking.

Cookware Tips
Combination Cooking
GLASS OR GLASS-CERAMIC baking containers
are recommended. Be sure not to use items with metal
trim as it may cause arcing (sparking) with oven wall
or metal accessory shelf, damaging the cookware, the
shelf or the oven.
HEAT-RESISTANT PLASTIC microwave
cookware (safe to 400°F.) may be used, but it is
not recommended for foods requiring crusting or
all-around browning, because the plastic is a poor
conductor of heat.
Convection Cooking
METAL PANS are recommended for all types of baked
products, but especially where browning or crusting
is important.
Dark or dull finish metal pans are best for breads and
pies because they absorb heat and produce crisper
crust.
Shiny aluminum pans are better for cakes, cookies
or muffins because these pans reflect heat and help
produce a light tender crust.
GLASS OR GLASS-CERAMIC casserole or baking
dishes are best suited for egg and cheese recipes due
to the cleanability of glass.
METAL SHELF
The shelf is
required for
good air circulation and even browning
when using Convection and Combination
cook. Allow at least one inch between
the pan and the walls of the oven for
air circulation.

Defrosting Tips
• Foods frozen in paper or
plastic can be defrosted in
the package. Tightly closed
packages should be slit,
pierced or vented, AFTER
food has partially defrosted,
as directed by package.
Plastic storage containers
should be at least partially
uncovered.
• Family-size, prepackaged frozen dinners can be
defrosted and microwaved. If the food is in a foil
container, transfer it to a microwave-safe dish.
• For even defrosting, some
foods need to be broken up
or separated part of the way
through the defrosting time.
• Foods that spoil easily, such as milk, eggs, fish,
stuffings, poultry and pork should not be allowed to
sit out for more than one hour after defrosting. Room
temperature promotes the growth of harmful bacteria.
• Check the Defrosting Guide for other defrosting tips.
Questions and Answers
Q. When I press START, I hear a dull thumping
noise. What is it?
A. This sound is normal. It is letting you know the
magnetron is in operation.
16
Q. Can I defrost small items in a hurry?
A. Yes, but they will need more frequent attention
than usual. Raise the power level after entering
the time by touching the desired power level pad.
Power Level 7 cuts the total defrosting time in
about 1/2; Power Level 10 cuts the total defrosting
time to approximately 1/3. During either, rotate or
stir food frequently.
COOKING BY TEMPERATURE
Internal temperature is the best test of doneness
for many foods.
Use Temp Cook/Hold to cook a variety of foods to
the desired finished food temperature. The Micro
Cook setting is recommended for batters, doughs,
frozen foods and foods which are difficult to cook
precisely with the probe.
Temp Cook/Hold takes the guesswork out of cooking
because the oven automatically switches to ‘‘Hold’’
setting after reaching the preset food temperature
and maintains that temperature until you touch the
CLEAR/OFF pad.
NOTE: Oven automatically switches to ‘‘Hold’’
when preset food temperature is reached.
The Temperature Probe
The temperature probe is a food thermometer that
gauges the internal temperature of your food. Use
the probe when you want to Convection Cook
or Combination Cook to a preferred internal
temperature. (Its appearance may vary from picture
shown.) The probe must be used when using Temp
Cook/Hold or Combination Roast. To use the probe
properly, follow directions in the Combination
Roasting section.

Step 2: Touch TEMP COOK/HOLD pad.
Step 3: Touch 1, 6 and 0 for 160°F.
Step 4: Touch POWER LEVEL pad. Touch 5 for
medium power.
Step 5: Touch the START pad. If internal temperature
of the roast is less than 90°F., display will show
‘‘COOL’’; if temperature is 90°F. or above, display
shows temperature counting up.
Step 6: When 160°F. is reached, the oven will sound
and display ‘‘Hold.’’ The oven will then hold the
temperature for up to one hour.
Step 7: Touch the CLEAR/OFF pad to stop the cycle.
Step 8: Remove probe and food from the oven.
Cooking Tips
• Use a lower power level; foods will heat more
evenly though requiring more time.
• Be sure frozen food has been completely defrosted
before inserting probe. Probe may break off if used
in frozen foods.
• Cover foods loosely for moisture control and quick,
even heating.
• Insert the probe horizontally into the center meaty
area not touching bone or fat. Make sure the handle
does not touch the food or top or sides of the oven.
Questions and Answers
Q. Why did ‘‘PRObE’’ flash on the display?
A. ‘‘PRObE’’ will flash if you don’t seat the
cable end of the probe securely into the receptacle
in the oven wall or if you touch the TEMP
COOK/HOLD pad and forget to use the probe.
Q. Can I leave my probe in the oven if it’s not
inserted in food?
A. No, if it touches the oven wall, it may damage
the oven.

CONTAINERS AND COVERS
Containers and Covers
• Match the amount of food to the size of the
container. Fill containers at least half full for
best results.
• Be sure the outside of the cooking container and
the inside of the microwave oven are dry before
placing food in the oven. Beads of moisture turning
into steam can mislead the sensor.
• Stir or rotate some foods after a beeping signal,
if required. See the Sensor Cooking Control
Guide section.
Appropriate containers and coverings help assure
good cooking results.
• Always use microwave-safe containers and cover
them with lids or vented plastic wrap. Wonder if
it’s microwave-safe? Put it to the test described in
the Microwaving Tips section.
• Never use tight-sealing plastic covers—they
can prevent steam from escaping and cause food
to overcook.
SENSOR COOKING CONTROL GUIDE
• Be sure outside of container and inside of oven
are dry.
• After completion of Sensor Cook cycle, if food
needs additional cooking, return food to oven and
use Micro Cook to finish cooking.
• Do not open oven door during cycle. When oven
signals and countdown time is displayed, door may
be opened for stirring, turning or rotating food. To

CONVECTION TIME COOKING
During convection cooking, a heating element is
used to raise the temperature of the air inside the
oven. A fan gently circulates this heated air
throughout the oven, over and around the food,
producing golden brown exteriors and rich, moist
interiors. Because the heated air is kept constantly
moving, not permitting a layer of cooler air to
develop around the food, some foods cook faster
than in regular oven cooking.
For information on suggested cookware, see the
Cookware and Accessories section.
For best results
1. Place the shelf on the oven floor.
2. Allow at least one inch between the pan and the walls of
the oven.
3. When converting your favorite recipe from regular oven
cooking to convection, lower the oven temperature 25 to
35 degrees and check at minimum time.
How to Convection Preheat and Time Cook
Step 1: Touch Convection COOK pad.
COOK
Step 2: Enter the oven temperature by touching
the number pads that correspond with the desired

CONVECTION TEMPERATURE COOKING
You can also convection cook with the temperature probe, to assure
that foods are cooked precisely to the degree of doneness desired,
while the constantly circulating hot air assures even cooking and
delicious browning. The temperature probe monitors the internal
temperature of the food and turns the oven off automatically when
the desired temperature is reached.
For best results
1. Place the shelf on the oven floor.
2. Allow at least one inch between the pan and the walls of
the oven.
3. When converting your favorite recipe from regular oven
cooking to convection, lower the oven temperature 25 to

number pads that correspond with the desired oven
temperature. For example, touch 2, 2, 5 for 225°F.
Step 4: Touch the appropriate number pads in
sequence to enter the desired food temperature.
Any food temperature from 90°F. to 199°F. may be
programmed. For example, touch 1, 8 and 0, in that
order, for 180°F. The temperature selected is shown
on the display.
Step 5: Touch START pad. When food
START reaches preselected temperature, display
shows “End,” oven signals and turns off.
Questions and Answers
Q. After I preheated my oven, I tried to set
cooking time, but nothing happened. What is
the problem?
A. Until you open the oven door or touch the
CLEAR/OFF pad, the oven remains in the preheat
mode and no further instructions can be entered.
After 1 hour oven automatically turns off.
Q. Can I check during the cooking cycle to be sure
that I have set the correct oven temperature?
A. Yes. If you touch the Convection COOK pad at
any time during cooking, the selected oven
temperature is displayed on the display.
Q. Can I store the probe in the oven when it is
not in use?
A. Leaving the probe in the oven is not recommended.
If you forget and leave it in during cooking,
without having inserted it in food, damage to
the probe or to the oven may result.

Questions and Answers
Remember:
Q. May I use my metal roasting pan to
Combination Cook a roast?
A. No. Do not use metal cookware when Combination
cooking. Place the roast in a glass dish.
Q. Is it necessary to place a glass dish on the oven
floor when Combination cooking?
A. No. For best roasting results, place the glass dish on
the oven shelf which rests on the oven floor during
Combination cooking.
• Check the Cookware and Accessories section
for correct cookware when Combination cooking.
• For best roasting and browning results, whole roasts
and poultry should be cooked in a dish placed directly
on the oven shelf.
• Place meat in a glass dish on a trivet to collect juices
and prevent spattering.
• Some recipes call for preheating.

COMBINATION TEMPERATURE COOKING
With this function of your new oven, you can enjoy the benefits of
combination cooking with the precision of the temperature probe. The
probe makes it simple to cook to the exact degree of doneness desired,
by monitoring the internal temperature of the food. This function is
exactly like combination time cooking except you set internal food
temperature desired instead of cooking time.
For best results
1. Place the shelf on the oven floor.
2. Allow at least one inch between the pan and the walls of the oven.
3. When converting your favorite recipe from regular oven cooking
to combination temperature cooking, lower the oven temperature
25 to 35 degrees and check at minimum time.

COMBINATION ROAST
The metal shelf must be in place
on the oven floor when using
convection or combination
cooking. The food is placed in a
glass dish on a trivet for cooking
during Combination Roast.
Combination Roast is a combination function
which is similar to combination temperature
cooking, using both microwave and convection
cooking in conjunction with the temperature
probe. However, the Combination Roast feature
eliminates most of the steps necessary to program
combination temperature cooking.
How to Combination Roast
Step 1: Insert temperature probe into meat and plug
the probe firmly into oven wall receptacle.
Step 2: Touch the COMBINATION
COMBINATION ROAST pad once for cooking your
ROAST
roast to MEDium doneness. Touch the
pad twice for cooking to “WELL”.
PROBE
START
Step 3: Touch START. When food reaches
the programmed temperature for proper
degree of doneness, the oven will sound
and display “Hold”. The oven will then
hold the temperature for up to one hour.

Questions and Answers
Q. When I cook poultry, the thin, small areas like
legs and wings often overcook before the rest of
the bird is thoroughly cooked. How can I
prevent this?
A. Thin, uneven portions of poultry may be shielded
with aluminum foil during cooking. Do not allow
foil to touch shelf or oven sides, arcing may occur.
Q. Usually my temperature probe gives very
accurate results, but this time it didn’t. What
happened?
A. If the temperature probe is positioned touching fat
or bone, an inaccurate reading may result. Be sure
to place the probe in solid muscle, usually the
thickest, meatiest part of the roast or poultry, or in
the center of a meat loaf or casserole.
Q. Meats often take longer than indicated in the
guides to reach the desired internal
temperature. Why?
A. If the meat is recently defrosted and still very cold
or icy inside, it will require a longer cooking time
than meat which has been merely refrigerated.
Times shown in the guides are usually for meats
that are refrigerator temperature.
Q. Do most meats require standing time after
cooking with Combination Roast?
A. You may want to let meats stand briefly, to allow
easier carving and serving. Most meat roasts
continue to cook for a few minutes after removing
from the oven.

CARE AND CLEANING
Keep your oven clean and sweetsmelling. Opening the oven door
a few minutes after cooking helps
air out the inside. An occasional
thorough wiping with a solution
of baking soda and water keeps
the inside fresh.
Don’t use sharp-edged utensils
on your oven. The inside and
outside oven walls can be
scratched. The control panel
can be damaged.
BE CERTAIN POWER IS OFF
BEFORE CLEANING ANY
PART OF THIS OVEN.
How to Clean the Inside
Walls and floor. Some spatters can be removed
with a paper towel, others may require a damp cloth.
Remove greasy spatters with a sudsy cloth, then rinse
with a damp cloth. Do not use abrasive cleaners on
oven walls. NEVER USE A COMMERCIAL OVEN
CLEANER ON ANY PART OF YOUR
MICROWAVE OVEN.
Door (inside). Window: Wipe up spatters daily
and wash when soiled with a damp cloth. Rinse
thoroughly and dry.
Metal and plastic parts on door: Wipe frequently
with a damp cloth to remove all soil. DO NOT USE
ABRASIVES, SUCH AS CLEANING POWDERS
OR STEEL AND PLASTIC PADS. THEY WILL
DAMAGE THE SURFACE.
Special note when using Brown ’N Sear Dish: If
grease is present, high heat generated on bottom of
a Brown ’N Sear dish may cause the grease to burn
onto the oven tray. This may be removed with a
cleanser such as Bon Ami® brand cleanser.
After using Bon Ami® brand cleanser, rinse and dry
thoroughly, following instructions on can. Do not use
Bon Ami® brand cleanser on the painted surfaces such
as the walls. It may scratch the paint.
Automatic Temperature Probe. Probe is sturdy,
but care should be taken in handling. Do not twist
or bend; avoid dropping temperature probe.
Clean as soon after using as possible. To clean,
wipe with sudsy cloth, then rub lightly with plastic
scouring ball if necessary. Rinse and dry or wash in
dishwasher.
Shelf. Clean the shelf with mild soap and water or in
the dishwasher. Do not clean in a self-cleaning oven.
How to Clean the Outside
Case. Clean the outside of your oven with soap and
damp cloth, rinse with a damp cloth and then dry.
Wipe the window clean with a damp cloth. Chrome
trim is best wiped with a damp cloth and then with
a dry towel.
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.
Door Surface. When cleaning surfaces of door and
oven that come together on closing the door, use only
mild, non-abrasive soaps or detergents applied with a
sponge or soft cloth.
Power Cord. If the cord becomes soiled, unplug and
wash with a damp cloth. For stubborn spots, sudsy
water may be used, but be certain to rinse with a
damp cloth and dry thoroughly before plugging cord
into outlet.

“PRObE” APPEARS
ON DISPLAY
• Temperature probe is missing or not plugged in securely when using cooking
functions that measure food temperature.
• Temperature probe is inserted for a program that does not use the probe.
“Error” APPEARS
ON DISPLAY
• During Sensor Cook, Sensor Reheat, Sensor Beverage or Sensor Popcorn program,
the door was opened before steam could be detected, or steam was not detected in
maximum time.
“HOT” APPEARS
ON DISPLAY
• This is normal when the temperature inside the oven is greater than 200 degrees
and the door is opened.
• One of the sensor cooking pads was touched when the temperature inside the oven
was greater than 200 degrees. These features will not operate when the oven is hot.

• Dimming oven light and change in blower sound
may occur while operating at power levels other
than high.
• Dull, thumping sound while oven is operating.
• Some TV-Radio interference might be noticed while
using your microwave oven. It’s similar to the
interference caused by other small appliances and
does not indicate a problem with your oven.
• Steam or vapor escaping from around the door.
• Light reflection around door.
• During cooking you will hear “cracking” and
“popping” noises which are nothing more than
normal expansion of the oven.
• At the end of microwave cycles you will hear a
slight thump. This is normal.
