CLEANING AND MAINTAINING

Keeping your microwave oven clean improves its performance, wards off unnecessary repairs, and lengthens its life.

CLEANING THE EXTERIOR

It’s best to clean spills on the outside of your microwave oven as they occur. Use a soft cloth and warm, soapy water. Rinse and dry.

Cleaning under your microwave oven

Regularly clean grease and dust from the bottom of your microwave using a solution of warm water and detergent.

Cleaning the control panel

Wipe with a damp cloth and dry thoroughly. Do not use cleaning sprays, large amounts of soap and water, abrasives, or sharp objects on the panel as it is easily damaged.

Cleaning the door and door seals

Always ensure that the door seals are clean and that the door closes properly. Take particular care when cleaning the door seals to ensure that no particles accumulate and prevent the door from closing correctly. Wash the glass door with very mild soap and water. Be sure to use a soft cloth to avoid scratching.

If a thin film of water accumulates on the inside or outside of the oven door, wipe it off with a soft cloth. A thin water film can accumulate when you operate the oven at high humidity and in no way indicates microwave leakage.

CLEANING THE INTERIOR

Clean the interior surfaces (oven cavity) of your microwave oven periodically to remove any splashes or stains. To remove hardened food articles and remove smells, place 2 cups of water (add lemon juice for extra freshness) into a four-cup measuring glass. Run the microwave at High power for 5 minutes or until the water boils. Let water stand in the oven for one or two minutes.

CLEANING THE TURNTABLE AND ROLLER RINGS

Clean the roller rings periodically and wash the turntable as required. You can wash the turntable safely in your dishwasher.
