Before cleaning: Unplug the microwave. If the outlet is inaccessible, leave the microwave door open while cleaning. Make sure all parts are cool before cleaning.
To clean the interior: Wipe with a damp cloth and dry with a soft cloth. A mild detergent may also be used. Avoid using harsh detergents and abrasive cleaning detergents and sponges. Do not use cleaning materials that contain chlorine since it is corrosive to stainless steel. Do not use oven cleaners. To prevent baked-on soil, clean food spatters or spilled liquids as they occur. To help loosen soil before cleaning, heat 2 cups of water in a 4 cup measuring container at high power for 5 minutes or until boiling.
To clean the exterior: Clean with a damp cloth and dry with a soft cloth. Water should not be allowed to seep into ventilation openings as this will potentially damage the microwave.
To clean stainless steel: Clean stainless steel areas by using mild, soapy water with a soft cloth. Wipe in the direction of the stainless steel grain when washing and drying. Rinse with water and wipe dry to avoid water marks. Do not use cleaning agents that are abrasive or contain chlorine since both are corrosive to stainless steel. For added shine, apply stainless steel conditioner and wipe off excess with a soft cloth. Do not apply stainless steel conditioners or cleaners to control labels or markings.
