Electrical Requirements
WARNING
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
■
Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
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.
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.
Do not use an extension cord. If the power supply cord is
too short, have a qualified electrician or serviceman install
an outlet near the microwave oven.
Observe all governing codes and ordinances.
Required:
■ A 120 Volt, 60 Hz, AC only, 15- or 20-amp electrical supply
with a fuse or circuit breaker.

Microwave Oven Use
Sensor Cooking
Popcorn
A sensor in the microwave oven detects moisture released from
food as it heats, and adjusts the cooking time accordingly.
Make sure microwave oven has been plugged in for at least
2 minutes. Use microwave-safe dish with loose-fitting lid, or cover
microwave-safe dish with plastic wrap and vent. For optimal
performance, wait at least 30 minutes after convection cooking or
grilling (on some models) before sensor cooking.
Popcorn is a sensor function. The sensor determines appropriate
cooking times for commercially packaged popcorn.
Keep Warm
WARNING
Food Poisoning Hazard
Stage Cooking
Do not let food sit in oven more than one hour before
or after cooking.
If programming stage cooking, follow the screen prompts on the
display to add additional stages, and set time, power and/or
temperature (on some models) for each stage. Up to 4 stages may
be programmed.
Doing so can result in food poisoning or sickness.
Doneness
Hot cooked food can be kept warm in the microwave oven. The
Keep Warm function uses 10% cook power. Keep Warm can be
used by itself or can be prorammed to follow a cooking cycle.
Opening the door during Keep Warm will cancel the function.
Add or subtract time from most automatic cook functions by
touching “Doneness” on the touch screen during programing, and
following the prompts. Doneness is remembered for specific
programs. Some meat, poultry and/or fish functions may not give
you the option to lessen doneness.
For list or description of various programs, see the Quick Reference Guide provided with your microwave oven.
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.
To avoid damage to the microwave oven caused by arcing due to
soil buildup, keep cavity, microwave inlet cover, cooking rack
supports, and area where the door touches the frame clean.
Clean with mild soap, water and a soft cloth or sponge, or as
indicated below.
■
Grease filters: mild soap and water or dishwasher.
■
Door and exterior: mild soap and water, or glass cleaner
applied to paper towel.
■
Control panel/interactive touch display: mild soap, water and
washcloth, or glass cleaner applied to soft cloth (not directly to
panel). Activate child lock to avoid control panel activation
during cleaning. Use gentle pressure when wiping the touch
screen.
Stainless steel (on some models): mild soap and water, then
rinse with clean water and dry with soft cloth, or use stainless
steel cleaner.
■
Turntable: mild soap and water or dishwasher.
■
Pan: mild soap, water and washcloth or dishwasher.
■
Rack(s): mild soap, water and washcloth. Dishwasher cleaning
is not recommended.
■
Steamer vessel: mild soap, water and soft brush or dishwasher.
Replacing Filters and Light Bulbs
Cavity: To avoid damage to the gray cavity lining, do not use
metal or sharp utensils or scraper, soap-filled scouring pad,
abrasive cleaners, steel-wool pads, gritty washcloths or some
recycled paper towels.
■
■
5
■
Grease filters: Remove grease filters from underside of
microwave oven, and clean monthly.
■
Charcoal filter(s): Depending on the model, there may be
2 charcoal filters – 1 behind each of the grease filters – on the
underside of the microwave oven, or one charcoal odor filter
under the vent screen on the top of the microwave oven. The
charcoal filter(s) cannot be cleaned, and should be replaced
about every 6 months.
■
Cooktop lights: The cooktop lights are located on the
underside of the microwave oven, and are replaceable.
■
Cavity light: The cavity light bulb is located under the vent
screen on the top of the microwave oven, under the bulb cover,
and is replaceable.
Troubleshooting
First try the solutions suggested here or visit our website and reference FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
to possibly avoid the cost of a service call.
www.kitchenaid.com
Microwave oven will not operate
Quartz bulb does not appear to be on
Check the following:
■ Household fuse or circuit breaker
If a household fuse has blown or a circuit breaker has tripped,
replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker. If the problem
continues, call an electrician.
■
This is not unusual. See “Grill Element” in the “Features”
section.
■
Is the element still working properly?
Place 2 slices of bread on the tall grill rack, place the rack on
the turntable and close the door. Program the microwave oven
using manual grill – without microwaves – for 4 minutes. The
bread should toast dark brown. If it does not toast, call for
service.
■
■
■
Magnetron
Try to heat 1 cup (250 mL) of cold water for 2 minutes at 100%
cooking power. If water does not heat, try the steps below. If
microwave oven still does not operate, call for service.
Door
Firmly close door. On some models, if a packaging spacer is
attached to inside of the door, remove it, then firmly close door.
If a message about the door appears in the display, the door
has been closed for 5 minutes or more without the microwave
oven being started. This happens to avoid unintended starting
of the microwave oven. Open and close the door, then start
the cycle.
Radio, TV or cordless phone interference
Check the following:
■ Proximity
Move the receiver away from the microwave oven, or adjust the
radio or TV antenna.
■ Soil
Make sure the microwave oven door and sealing surfaces are
clean.
■ Frequency
Some 2.4 GHz-based cordless phones and home wireless
networks may experience static or noise while microwave
oven is on. Use a corded phone, a different frequency
cordless phone or avoid using these items during microwave
oven operation.
Control
Make sure control is set properly. Make sure Control Lock is off.
Make sure Demo Mode (on some models) is off.
Arcing in the microwave oven
Check the following:
■ Soil buildup
Soil buildup on cavity walls, microwave inlet cover, cooking
rack supports, and area where the door touches the frame can
cause arcing. See “General Cleaning” in “Microwave Oven
Care” section.
Fan running during cooktop usage
■
Turntable alternates rotation directions
■
This is normal and depends on motor rotation at the beginning
of the cycle.
Fan running after cooking is finished
■
Odor and smoke coming from microwave oven during
convection cooking
■
This is normal. The microwave oven’s cooling fan (on some
models), which is separate from the vent fan, automatically
comes on during microwave oven operation to cool the
microwave oven. It may also automatically come on and cycle
on and off to cool the microwave oven’s controls while the
cooktop below is being used.
This is normal for convection and grill use. The fan may run for
up to 10 minutes to cool the microwave oven.
This is normal for the first few convection cycles. The odor will
dissipate with repeated use.
