Cleaning and Care

Disconnect the power cord before cleaning or leave the door open to deactivate the microwave oven during cleaning.


The outside surface is pre-coated metal and plastic. Clean the outside with mild soap and water; rinse and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use any type of household or abrasive cleaner.


Wipe the window on both sides with a damp cloth to remove any spills or spatters. Metal parts will be easier to maintain if wiped frequently with a damp cloth. Avoid the use of spray and other harsh cleaners as they may stain, streak or dull the door surface.

Touch Control Panel

Care should be taken in cleaning the touch control panel. If the control panel becomes soiled, open the microwave oven door before cleaning. Wipe the panel with a cloth dampened slightly with water only. Dry with a soft cloth. Do not scrub or use any sort of chemical cleaners. Close door and touch STOP/ CLEAR pad.

Interior - After Microwave Cooking

The oven walls, ceiling and floor are stainless steel. Cleaning after microwave cooking is easy because no heat is generated to the interior surfaces; therefore, there is no baking and setting of spills or spattering. To clean the interior surfaces, wipe with a soft cloth and warm water. DO NOT USE ABRASIVE OR HARSH CLEANERS OR SCOURING PADS. For heavier soil, use mild soap; rinse thoroughly with hot water.

Interior - After Convection, Mix or Broil Cooking

Spatters may occur because of moisture and grease. Wash immediately after use with hot, soapy water. Rinse and polish dry. Harder to remove spatters may occur if oven is not thoroughly cleaned or if there is long time/high temperature cooking. If so, you may wish to purchase an oven cleaner pad with liquid cleaner within it—not a soap filled steel pad—for use on stainless or porcelain surfaces. Follow manufacturer’s directions carefully and be especially cautious not to get any of the liquid cleaner in the perforations on the wall or ceiling or any door surfaces. Rinse thoroughly and polish dry.

Waveguide Cover

The waveguide cover is located on the ceiling in the oven cavity. It is made from mica so requires special care. Keep the waveguide cover clean to assure good oven performance. Carefully wipe with a damp cloth any food spatters from the surface of the cover immediately after they occur. Built-up splashes may overheat and cause smoke or possibly catch fire. DO NOT REMOVE THE WAVEGUIDE COVER.

Odor Removal

Occasionally, a cooking odor may remain in the oven. To remove, combine 1 cup water, grated peel and juice of 1 lemon and several whole cloves in a 2-cup glass measuring cup. Boil for several minutes using 100% power. Allow to set in oven until cool. Wipe interior with a soft cloth.

Turntable/Turntable Support

The ceramic turntable and turntable support can be removed for easy cleaning. Wash them in mild, sudsy water; for stubborn stains use a mild cleanser and scouring sponge as described above. They are also dishwasher-safe using top rack. Screen Shot 2018-01-10 at 10.53.26 AM.png

Oven Racks

The high and low baking racks can be removed for easy cleaning and stored away from the microwave oven when racks are not needed. After each use, wash them in mild, sudsy water. For any stubborn stains, use a mild kitchen cleanser and scouring sponge as described above. They are dishwasher-proof. Screen Shot 2018-01-10 at 10.55.30 AM.png

Grease Filters

Filters should be cleaned at least once a month. Never operate the fan or oven without the filters in place.

  1. Pull the tab toward the front of the oven, down slightly and remove the filter. Repeat for the other filter.
  2. Soak the filters in a sink or dish pan filled with hot water and detergent. DO NOT use ammonia or other alkali; they will react with the filter material and darken it.
  3. Agitate and scrub with a brush to remove embedded dirt.
  4. Rinse thoroughly and shake dry.
  5. Replace by fitting the filter back into the opening.



The fan will automatically start when heat rises from range surface units or burners and when CONVECTION, HIGH MIX, LOW MIX or the BROIL settings are used. This protects the microwave oven from excessive temperature rise. The fan will stay on until the temperature decreases. It cannot be turned off manually during this time.

For other uses, select either high or low speed.

Precautions For Proper Use:

  1. DO NOT leave range unattended while using high temperatures. Automatic fan may start and provide excessive air to the surface units. This may cause spattering or boil over.
  2. Avoid burning food.
  3. Keep grease filters clean.
