Q. What's wrong when the oven light will not glow?

A. ■ Light bulb is burned out.

■ Door Is not closed.

Q. Wh/ is steam coming out of the air exhaust vent?

A. Steam is normally produced during cooking operations. The microwave oven has been made to vent

this steam out of the top vent.

Q. Does microwave energy pass through the viewing screen in the door?

A. No. The metal screen reflects the energy to the oven cavity. The holes, or ports are made to allow light

to pass; they do not let microwave energy through.

Q. Will the microwave oven be damaged if it operates while empty?

A. Yes. Never run it empty.

Q. Why do eggs sometimes pop?

A. When baking, frying, or poaching eggs, the yolk may pop due to steam build up inside the yolk

membrane. To prevent this, simply pierce the yolk with a toothpick before cooking. Never cook eggs

without piercing their shells.

Q. Why is standing time recommended after the cooking operation has been completed?

A. Standing time is very important. With microwave cooking, the heat is in the food, not in the oven. Many

foods build-up enough internal heat to allow the cooking process to continue, even after the food is

removed from the oven. Standing time for joints of meat, large vegetables and cakes is to allow the
inside to cook completely, without overcooking the outside.

Q. Why does my oven not always cook as fast as the microwave cooking guide says?

A. Check your cooking guide again, to make sure you’ve followed directions exactly; and to see what might

cause variations in cooking time. Cooking guide times and heat settings are suggestions, to help

prevent over-cooking . . . the most common problem in getting used to a microwave oven. Variations in

the size, shape and weights and dimensions could require longer cooking time. Use your own

judgement along with the cooking guide suggestions to check whether the food has been properly

cooked just as you would do with a conventional cooker.

Q. Why do sparks and crackling (arcing) occur in the oven?

A. There may be several reasons why sparks and crackling within cavity (arcing) happen.

■ You are using dishes with metallic trim (silver or gold).
■ You have left a fork or other metal utensil in the oven.
■ You are using a large amount of metal toll.
■ You are using a metal twist-tie.
