 How to fix

Was the food/dish completely defrosted before cooking?

If not completely defrosted, foods will cook unevenly in the unit.

For the best result of the “Defrost”
 - remove the fish, selfish, meat and poultry from its original closed wrapper.
 - shape your ground meat into the form of a doughnut before freezing
 - Please read “Defrosting Tips” in the Owners Manual of the Unit.



Is cookware approved for microwave use?

Not all dishes are microwave safe. Check the specifications for the cookware. If it is not approved for microwave cooking, do not use to cook food in MWO.

Most heat resistance, nonmetallic cookware is safe for use in your microwave oven.

Some dish (melamine, some ceramic dinnerware, etc) absorb microwave energy,
become too hot to handle  and slowing cooking time. Cooking in metal containers,
not designed for microwave use, could damage the oven, as could containers with
hidden metal (twist-ties, foil lining, staples, metallic glaze or trim).



Is the turntable in the unit when cooking?

If the glass turntable is not being used, the dish will not turn in the unit. This will prevent even cooking. Overcooking will occur in some areas and under cooking will occur in other areas. Using the microwave without the turntable can also cause damage to the turntable motor and inside cavity.



Was the time/cooking power
level set correctly?

If the time and power levels were not set properly, the unit will not cook food properly. Each unit has different instructions for operating the unit. Refer to the Owner’s Manual for instructions specific to the model in question.

Refer to the cooking guide of the owners manual to get even cooking.
Measure the amount of food in order to the time and power level needed to reheat.
