How to Clean the Outside


Clean the outside of the microwave
with a sudsy cloth. Rinse and then
dry. Wipe the window clean with a
damp cloth.

Control Panel and Door

Wipe with a damp cloth. Dry thoroughly.
Do not use cleaning sprays, large
amounts of soap and water, abrasives
or sharp objects on the panel—they
can damage it. Some paper towels can
also scratch the control panel.

Door Surface

It’s important to keep the area clean
where the door seals against the
microwave. Use only mild, non-abrasive
detergents applied with a clean sponge
or soft cloth. Rinse well.

Power Cord

If the cord becomes soiled, unplug
and wash with a damp cloth. For
stubborn spots, sudsy water may be
used, but be certain to rinse with a
damp cloth and dry thoroughly before
plugging cord into outlet.

Do not use cleaners containing
ammonia or alcohol on the
microwave oven. Ammonia
or alcohol can damage the
appearance of the microwave.
