MICROWAVE HOOD COMBINATION SAFETY
Your safety and the safety of others are very important.
We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and obey all safety
messages.
This is the safety alert symbol.
This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.
All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word “DANGER” or “WARNING.”
These words mean:
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't immediately
follow instructions.
DANGER
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow
instructions.
WARNING
All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can
happen if the instructions are not followed.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
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 all instructions before using the microwave oven.
■ Read and follow the specific “PRECAUTIONS TO
AVOID POSSIBLE EXPOSURE TO EXCESSIVE
MICROWAVE ENERGY” found in this section.
■ The microwave oven must be grounded. Connect only
to properly grounded outlet. See “GROUNDING
INSTRUCTIONS” found in this section and in the
provided Installation Instructions.
■ Install or locate the microwave oven only in
accordance with the provided Installation Instructions.
■ Some products such as whole eggs in the shell and
sealed containers – for example, closed glass jars –
are able to explode and should not be heated in the
microwave oven.
■ Use the microwave oven only for its intended use as
described in this manual. Do not use corrosive
chemicals or vapors in the microwave oven. This type
of oven is specifically designed to heat, cook, or dry
food. It is not designed for industrial or laboratory use.
■ As with any appliance, close supervision is necessary
when used by children.
■ Do not operate the microwave oven if it has a
damaged cord or plug, if it is not working properly, or
if it has been damaged or dropped.

qualified service personnel. Call an authorized service
company for examination, repair, or adjustment.
■ See door surface cleaning instructions in the
“Microwave Oven Care” section.
■
■
■
■
To reduce the risk of fire in the oven cavity:
– Do not overcook food. Carefully attend the microwave oven
when paper, plastic, or other combustible materials are placed
inside the oven to facilitate cooking.
– Remove wire twist-ties from paper or plastic bags before
placing bags in oven.
– If materials inside the oven ignite, keep oven door closed, turn
oven off, and disconnect the power cord, or shut off power at
the fuse or circuit breaker panel.
– Do not use the cavity for storage purposes. Do not leave
paper products, cooking utensils, or food in the cavity when
not in use.
Liquids, such as water, coffee, or tea are able to be overheated
beyond the boiling point without appearing to be boiling. Visible
bubbling or boiling when the container is removed from the
microwave oven is not always present. THIS COULD RESULT
IN VERY HOT LIQUIDS SUDDENLY BOILING OVER WHEN
THE CONTAINER IS DISTURBED OR A SPOON OR OTHER
UTENSIL IS INSERTED INTO THE LIQUID.
To reduce the risk of injury to persons:
– Do not overheat the liquid.
– Stir the liquid both before and halfway through heating it.
– Do not use straight-sided containers with narrow necks.
– After heating, allow the container to stand in the microwave
oven for a short time before removing the container.
– Use extreme care when inserting a spoon or other utensil into
the container.
Oversized foods or oversized metal utensils should not be
inserted in the microwave oven as they may create a fire or risk
of electric shock.
Do not clean with metal scouring pads. Pieces can burn off the

Electrical Requirements
WARNING
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
■
Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,
fire, or electrical shock.
Observe all governing codes and ordinances.
Required:
■ A 120 Volt, 60 Hz, AC only, 15- or 20-amp electrical supply

For all cord connected appliances:
The microwave oven must be grounded. In the event of
an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of
electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric
current. The microwave oven is equipped with a cord
having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. The plug
must be plugged into an outlet that is properly installed
and grounded.
WARNING: Improper use of the grounding plug can
result in a risk of electric shock. Consult a qualified
electrician or serviceman if the grounding instructions are
not completely understood, or if doubt exists as to whether
the microwave oven is properly grounded.

Sensor Cooking
The microwave system features sensor cooking functions. A
humidity sensor in the microwave oven cavity detects moisture
and humidity emitted from food as it heats. The sensor adjusts
cooking times to various types and amounts of food. Sensor
cooking takes the guesswork out of microwave cooking.
Grill Element
The microwave system featuring OPTIMAWAVE™ Technology
delivers a constant stream of microwave power – true high,
medium and low power – to provide consistent, even results.
Typically, microwave ovens operate on HIGH power only. For
example, to achieve a 50% power level (“medium”) in a typical
microwave oven, the microwave oven operates 50% of the time
at HIGH power and 50% of the time OFF.
A
B
A. Halogen bulb
B. Quartz bulb
In contrast, microwave ovens utilizing this microwave system
deliver the selected power level continuously. This constant
stream of microwave power helps to minimize overcooking of
foods and messy food spatters.
The microwave oven uses a 1,000-watt halogen bulb with a 500watt quartz bulb to serve as the grill element for various cooking
functions.
When the element is in use, the halogen bulb glows very brightly,
while the glow of the quartz bulb is barely–if at all–visible. (See
“Troubleshooting” for quartz bulb testing.) The microwave oven
cavity and door will become hot. The use of oven mitts is
recommended.

MICROWAVE OVEN USE
A magnetron in the oven produces microwaves which reflect off
the metal floor, walls and ceiling and pass through the turntable
and appropriate cookware to the food. Microwaves are attracted
to and absorbed by fat, sugar and water molecules in the food,
causing them to move, producing friction and heat which cooks
the food.
■ Do not lean on or allow children to swing on the microwave
oven door.
■
Do not operate microwave oven when it is empty.
■
The turntable must be in place and correct side up when
microwave oven is in use. Do not use if turntable is chipped
or broken. See “Assistance or Service” section to reorder.
■
Baby bottles and baby food jars should not be heated in
microwave oven.
■
Clothes, flowers, fruit, herbs, wood, gourds, paper, including
brown paper bags and newspaper, should not be dried in
microwave oven.
■
Do not use the microwave oven for canning, sterilizing or
deep frying.
■
Paraffin wax will not melt in the microwave oven because it
does not absorb microwaves.
■
Use oven mitts or pot holders when removing containers from
microwave oven.
■
Do not overcook potatoes. At the end of the recommended
cook time, potatoes should be slightly firm. Let potatoes
stand for 5 minutes. They will finish cooking while standing.
■
Do not cook or reheat whole eggs inside the shell. Steam
buildup in whole eggs may cause them to burst. Cover
poached eggs and allow a standing time.
Food Characteristics
When microwave cooking, the amount, size and shape, starting
temperature, composition and density of the food affect cooking
results.
Cooking Guidelines
Covering
Covering food helps retain moisture, shorten cook time and
reduce spattering. Use the lid supplied with cookware. If a lid is
not available, wax paper, paper towels or plastic wrap approved
for microwave ovens may be used. Plastic wrap should be turned
back at one corner to provide an opening to vent steam.
Condensation on the door and cavity surfaces is normal during
heavy cooking.
Stirring and Turning
Stirring and turning redistribute heat evenly to avoid overcooking
the outer edges of food. Stir from outside to center. If possible,
turn food over from bottom to top.
Arranging
If heating irregularly shaped or different sized foods, arrange the
thinner parts and smaller sized items toward the center. If
cooking several items of the same size and shape, place them in
a ring pattern, leaving the center of the ring empty.
Piercing
Before heating, use a fork or small knife to pierce or prick foods
that have a skin or membrane, such as potatoes, egg yolks,
chicken livers, hot dogs, and sausage. Prick in several places to
allow steam to vent.
Shielding
Use small, flat pieces of aluminum foil to shield the thin pieces of
irregularly shaped foods, bones and foods such as chicken
wings, leg tips and fish tail. See “Aluminum Foil and Metal” first.
Standing Time
Food will continue to cook by the natural conduction of heat even
after the microwave cooking cycle ends. The length of standing
time depends on the volume and density of the food.
Amount of Food
The more food heated at once, the longer the cook time needed.
Check for doneness and add small increments of time if
necessary.
Size and Shape
Smaller pieces of food will cook more quickly than larger pieces,
and uniformly shaped foods cook more evenly than irregularly
shaped food.
Starting Temperature
Room temperature foods will heat faster than refrigerated foods,
and refrigerated foods will heat faster than frozen foods.
Composition and Density
Foods high in fat and sugar will reach a higher temperature, and
will heat faster than other foods. Heavy, dense foods, such as
meat and potatoes, require a longer cook time than the same size
of a light, porous food, such as cake.
14
Cookware and Dinnerware
Cookware and dinnerware must fit on the turntable. Always use
oven mitts or pot holders when handling because any dish may
become hot from heat transferred from the food. Do not use
cookware and dinnerware with gold or silver trim. Use the
following chart as a guide, then test before using.

PROGRAMMED COOKING
Convection Cooking
During convection cycles, the convection element heats the air in
the microwave oven cavity, and the convection fan circulates the
hot air. The constantly moving air surrounds the food to heat the
outer portion quickly.
See “Food Type Chart” for automatic convection cycles (Bake or
Roast).
Convection cooking may also be done manually. Use convection
cooking for items such as pies, breads, cookies, cakes and pizza.
See “Manual Cooking” section for instructions.
Manual convection cooking may be used to proof bread. See
“Raising (Proofing) Bread” section for instructions.
NOTES:
■ Use the provided convection rack.
■
Do not cover the turntable or convection rack with foil, as it
interferes with the circulation of hot air.
■
Do not use light plastic containers, plastic wrap or paper
products. All ovenproof cookware or metal utensils can be
used in convection cooking. (Round pizza pans are excellent
cooking utensils for many convection-only items.) Metal
utensils cannot be used in microwave or combination
cooking.
■
No special techniques are needed to adapt standard oven
recipes to convection cooking, although some cooking times
might need to be shortened, and some temperatures
adjusted.
■
This microwave oven may be preheated in the same way that
a standard oven is preheated. (Most recipes for baked goods
call for preheating.)
Combination Cooking
Combination cooking uses microwaves in addition to the
convection system to cook or roast foods more quickly than with
convection alone.
Combination cooking may also be done manually. Use
combination cooking for items such as roasts, meat loaf,
lasagna, casseroles and whole chicken. See “Time/Temp/Power
Cooking” or “Convect Time/Temp” sections for instructions.
18
NOTES:
■ Do not use metal cookware or utensils during combination
cooking.
■
Meats may be roasted directly on the convection rack. Use
the browning pan to catch drippings.
■
Less tender cuts of beef can be roasted and tenderized using
oven cooking bags.
■
Check for doneness after the cycle has ended. If the food is
not completely done, let it stand in the microwave oven for a
few minutes to finish cooking.
■
During any automatic or manual combination cycle, no more
than 30% microwave power is used.
Sensor Cooking
Some automatic cycles are sensor cycles. See “Cook Method
Chart.” No amounts need to be entered. A sensor in the
microwave oven detects humidity released from the food as it
heats, and adjusts the cook time accordingly. The progress bar
appears during sensing (see “Progress Bar” section).
Many sensor cycles require the covering of foods. The provided
steamer vessel has a loose-fitting lid, which allows enough steam
to escape to be detected by the sensor. When covering foods
with plastic wrap, be sure to leave a large enough vent opening to
allow the steam to escape.
NOTES:
■ The microwave oven should be plugged in for at least
2 minutes.
■
The microwave oven cavity and the exterior of the cooking
container should be dry.
■
The room temperature should not exceed 95°F (35°C).
■
If the door is opened during a sensor cycle, sensing will stop
and the program will be canceled.
■
For optimal performance, wait at least 30 minutes after
convection cooking or grill cooking before sensor cooking.
Preheating
Preheating of the microwave oven is programmed in some
automatic convection cycles. After the microwave oven is
preheated, it will maintain the set preheat temperature until the
door is opened to add the food. Preheating may be skipped after
it has started by touching “Skip Preheat” on the touch screen,
adding food and then touching “Continue.”
Preheating of the browning pan is programmed in many
automatic cooking cycles. This preheating phase may also be
skipped by touching “Skip Preheat.”
For optimal results, we recommend completing the preheating
phase of each cycle in which preheating is programmed.
However, preheating of the microwave oven would not be
necessary when baking consecutive batches, such as cookies,
as the microwave oven would already be hot.
Doneness
Doneness for food items may be adjusted for most automatic
cycles. Before starting a cycle, touch “Doneness” on the touch
screen, and adjust the doneness with “+” (more done) or “-” (less
done) controls. The “+” control adds to, and the “-” control
subtracts from the recommended default cook time.
The more done and less done settings in most foods for which
doneness may be adjusted are equal. That is, the same amount
of time may be added to or subtracted from the cycle. Some of
the Meat and Poultry cycles have only the more done settings.
Popcorn
Popcorn is a sensor function. The sensor determines the
appropriate popping time of commercially packaged
microwavable popcorn.
The sensor will determine accurate popping times for bag sizes:
3.5 oz (99 g), 3.0 oz (85 g) or 1.75 oz (50 g). For bag sizes not
listed in this section, follow package directions.
■ Do not place bag on convection rack or grill rack.
■
Do not use regular paper bags or glassware.
■
Pop only 1 package of popcorn at a time.
■
Follow manufacturer’s instructions when using a microwave
popcorn popper.
■
Listen for popping to slow to 1 pop every 1 to 2 seconds,
then stop the cycle. Do not try to pop unpopped kernels.
■
Use fresh bags of popcorn for optimal results.
■
Cooking results may vary by brand and fat content.
To Use Popcorn:
1. Place popcorn bag on the turntable and close the door.
2. Touch POPCORN control.
The microwave oven will start automatically. The display will
show when the microwave oven is sensing, and will start
counting down the time when sensing has finished.
When the cycle ends, the end-of-cycle tones will sound,
followed by reminder tones.
3. Touch OFF control or open the door to stop reminder tones.
The display will return to the Main Menu after OFF control is
touched.

MICROWAVE OVEN CARE
General Cleaning
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 lyebased 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.
CONTROL PANEL/INTERACTIVE TOUCH DISPLAY
Activate the Control Lock to avoid touch screen activation during
cleaning. See “Control Lock” section.
Do not use abrasive cleaners, steel-wool pads or gritty
washcloths. Damage may occur.
Use gentle pressure when wiping the touch screen.
■ Glass cleaner and soft cloth:
Apply glass cleaner to soft cloth, not directly on panel.
■
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:
MICROWAVE OVEN DOOR AND EXTERIOR
The area where the microwave oven door and frame touch when
closed should be kept clean.
■ Mild, nonabrasive soaps and detergents:
Rinse with clean water and dry with soft, lint-free cloth.
■
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.
Glass cleaner and paper towels or nonabrasive plastic
scrubbing pad:
Apply glass cleaner to towel, not directly to surface.
Stainless Steel (on some models)
To avoid damage to the microwave oven, do not use soap-filled
scouring pads, abrasive cleaners, steel-wool pads, gritty
washcloths or some paper towels. Rub in direction of grain.
■ KITCHENAID® Stainless Steel Cleaner & Polish (not included)
KITCHENAID® Stainless Steel Wipes (not included):
Rinse with clean water and dry with soft, lint-free cloth.
Heavy soil
■ Mild, nonabrasive soaps and detergents:
Mild soap, water and soft washcloth
See “Assistance or Service” section to order.
■
Liquid detergent or all-purpose cleaner:
Rinse with clean water and dry with soft, lint-free cloth.
