Q.When the microwave oven is plugged into a wall outlet for the first time, it does not work properly. What is wrong?

A.The microcomputer used in the microwave oven control may temporarily become scrambled and fail to function as programmed. Unplug the oven from the wall outlet and then plug it back in again. The microcomputer should then automatically reset for proper functioning.

Q. Why is there noise coming from the turntable when the microwave oven is turned on?

to obtain the lower power level. The clicking noise can be heard when the oven cycles on and off. This is normal.

Q. Why is there steam coming out of the air exhaust vent?

A. Steam is produced during cooking. The microwave oven has been made to vent this steam out of the air exhaust vent.

Q. What is wrong when the microwave oven interior light will not glow? A. There may be several reasons why the interior light will not glow. The light bulb may have burned out or START may not have been pressed.

Replace the light bulb or press START. Never replace the light bulb by yourself. Contact an Authorized Service Center.

entered. However, you can turn off the beep tone. See optional settings on page 17.

Q. Why does the exhaust fan start when the FAN keypad is not pressed? A. High temperature air from the heating surface below microwave oven can cause an overheating condition that may damage the oven. The

exhaust fan will start automatically to cool off the microwave oven and prevent damage to it.

Q. How can you be sure your microwave oven is turned off when the exhaust fan is operating?

A. When you are operating the microwave, the sound of the exhaust fan may be louder than the microwave itself. This could possibly prevent

you from knowin.g for sure if the microwave oven is turned off. The microwave oven is designed to automatically turn off when door is open.

If for some reason you are not sure the microwave oven is turned off, turn the exhaust fan off to eliminate the sound and check to see if the

microwave oven is operating. If you are still not satisfied, have the microwave oven checked.
