• check if oven is properly connected to electric circuit
in house.
• check that controls are set properly.
If the oven interior light does not work
• the light bulb is loose or defective.
If oven will not cook:
• check that control panel was programmed correctly.

Q. C
an I use a rack in my microwave oven to reheat
or cook on two levels at once?
A. Only use the rack that is supplied with your
microwave oven. Use of any other rack can result
in poor cooking performance and/or arcing and may
damage your oven.
Q. C
an I use either metal or aluminum pans in my
microwave oven?
A. Usable metal includes aluminum foil for shielding
(use small, flat pieces), and shallow foil trays (if
tray is ¾ inch deep and filled with food to absorb
microwave energy). Never allow metal to touch walls
or door.
Q. S
ometimes the door of my microwave oven
appears wavy. Is this normal?
A. This appearance is normal and does not affect the
operation of your oven.
Q. The glass tray does not move.
A. The glass tray is not correctly in place. It should be
correct-side up and sitting firmly on the center hub.
The support is not operating correctly. Remove the
glass tray and restart the oven. Cooking without
the glass tray can give you poor results.
Q. W
hy does the dish become hot when I
microwave food in it? I thought that this should
not happen.
A. As the food becomes hot it will conduct the heat to
the dish. Use hot pads to remove food after cooking.
If food cooks unevenly:
• be sure food is evenly shaped.
• be sure food is completely defrosted before cooking.
• check placement of aluminum foil strips used to
prevent overcooking.
Q. What does standing time mean?
A. Standing time means that food should be taken
out of the oven and covered for additional time after
cooking. This process allows the cooking to finish,
saves energy, and frees the oven for other purposes.
If food is undercooked:
• check recipe to be sure all directions (amount, time,
and power levels) were correctly followed.
• be sure microwave oven is on a separate circuit.
• be sure food is completely defrosted before cooking.
If food is overcooked:
• check recipe to be sure all directions (amount, power
level, time, size of dish) were followed.
If arcing (sparks) occur:
• be sure microwavable dishes were used.
• be sure wire twist ties weren’t used.
• be sure oven wasn’t operated when empty.
• make sure metal rack (if used) is properly installed on
4 supports.
If the display shows a time counting down but the
oven is not cooking:
• check that door is firmly closed.
• check that timer wasn’t started instead of a cooking
Q. C
an I pop popcorn in my microwave oven?
How do I get the best results?
A. Yes. Pop packaged microwave popcorn following
manufacturer’s guidelines or use the preprogrammed
Popcorn key.
Do not use regular paper bags. Use the listening test
by stopping the oven as soon as the popping slows
to a pop every one or two seconds. Do not try to
repop unpopped kernels. You can also use special
microwave poppers. When using a popper, be sure
to follow manufacturer’s directions. Do not pop
popcorn in glass utensils.
Q. W
hy does steam come out of the air exhaust
A. Steam is normally produced during cooking. The
microwave oven has been designed to vent steam
out of the top vent.
