The oven sets the cooking time and power level for a specific
food category. To Use Cook:
1. Touch COOK.
2. Select food type , see guide.
3. Enter weight in ounces.
4. Touch START.
NOTE: To display the food type and remaining cooking
time, touch the COOK pad.
SENSOR COOKING FEATURES
(JVM MODELS ONLY)
Note: Don't use metal shelf with Sensor
Cooking.
SENSOR COOKING CONDITION
Using the sensor assisted cooking codes, the foods are
cooked without calculating time, power level or quantity.
When the oven senses enough steam from the food, it relays
the information to the microprocessor which will calculate the
remaining cooking time and power level needed for best
results. When the food is cooked, water vapor is developed.
The sensor "senses" the vapor and its resistance increases
gradually. When the resistance reaches the value set accord-
ing to the menu, supplementary cooking is started.
The time of supplementary cooking is determined by experi-
ment with each food category and entered into the micropro-
cessor. An example of how the sensor works: (POTATOES)
1. Potatoes at room temperature. Vapor is emitted very
slowly.
2. Heated potatoes. Moisture and humidity are emitted
rapidly.
3. The sensor detects the moisture and humidity and calcu-
lates cooking time and variable power.
SENSOR COOKING PREFERENCE CONTROL
When using the sensor assisted cooking codes, except for
CANNED VEG and FROZEN VEG, it is possible to adjust the
oven cooking time by 10%.
To Use Sensor Cooking Preference Control:
- By immediately touching the number I pad after touching a
sensor assisted pad the oven will turn off 10% sooner.
- By pressing the number 9 pad after touching a sensor
assisted pad the oven will cook 10% longer.
BEVERAGE
This instant on pad reheats beverages by sensing the
steam with the sensor system.
NOTE: Maximum heating time is 4: 00, preference
control not available on beverage pad.
13
POPCORN
The POPCORN feature is a pre-programmed function
that uses the humidity sensor to automatically select the
correct cooking time.
NOTE: Use of the metal shelf with the popcorn pad is not
recommended.
This feature works best when the popcorn contents are in
the 1. 75 - 3.5 ounces range.
Maximum heating time is 4:10.
To Use Popcorn:
1. Remove the outer wrapper from the microwave popcorn.
2. Open oven door and place package of popcorn in the
center of the oven floor as directed by the manufacturer's
instructions. Close oven door.
3. Touch POPCORN pad. "POPCORN" appears on the
display. Oven turns on instantly.
4. The popcorn sensor automatically calculates the
cooking time. After the popcorn sensor detects steam,
the oven signals and displays remaining cooking time
needed.
5. When cooking is completed, the oven signals and
scrolls "FOOD IS READY". Open the door and remove the
popcorn.
How to adjust the Popcorn Program to provide a
shorter or longer cook time:
If popcorn is undercooked you can make an adjustment
by adding time.
- Touch the POPCORN pad and then touch number pad
9 once. The word "POP +" will appear on the display
adding 20 seconds to the cook time. If the 9 pad is
pressed for the second time "POP ++" will appear on
the display adding another 10 seconds for a total of 30
seconds.
If popcorn is overcooked you can make an adjustment by
subtracting time.
- Touch the POPCORN pad and then touch number pad
I once. The word "POP -" will appear on the display
subtracting 20 seconds to the cook time. If the I pad is
pressed for the second time "POP --" will appear on the
display subtracting another 10 seconds for a total of 3 0
seconds.
REHEAT
With this feature the oven automatically adjusts its
heating time to various types and amounts of precooked
food by sensing the steam that escapes as food heats. Do
not open the oven door while the word "REHEAT" IS
DISPLAYED, steam escaping will affect oven performance.
REHEAT is an instant on function. No need to press start
after selecting REHEAT.
NOTE: Best results are obtained with foods you want to
steam or retain moisture (must be covered).
Maximum heating time is 5:00

SENSOR COOKING
SINGLE FOOD AUTO COOK
Canned vegetables, frozen vegetables, fresh vegetables,
potatoes, fish fillets, chicken pieces and ground meats
are cooked with their own pad.
To Use Sensor Pads:
1. Place covered food in the oven and press the
matching pad. Oven starts immediately.
2. The oven signals when steam is sensed and
time remaining is counting down. It might be
necessary to turn or stir food.
3. When finished the oven will signal again and
the control will scroll "FOOD IS READY".
Note: Do not open the oven door until time is counting down,
sensor error message will be displayed. When using the
sensor assisted cooking codes, except for CANNED VEG
and FROZEN VEG, it is possible to adjust the oven cooking
time by 10%. (preference control).
OPERATION
DESCRIPTION OF OPERATING SEQUENCE
The following is a description of component functions during
oven operation.
OFF CONDITION
Closing the door activates the door sensing and primary
interlock switches. (In this condition, the monitor switch
contacts are opened.) When oven is plugged in, 120 volts
A.C. is supplied to the smart board. The display panel lights
up for 15 seconds then "PLEASE PRESS CLOCK" scrolls.
Touch the CLOCK pad to set the clock and the oven is ready
for use. If power is disrupted at any time, the above se-
quence recurs, and you must reset the clock after touching
the CLEAR/OFF pad.
COOKING CONDITION
When the START pad is touched the following occurs:
1. Relay contacts are closed and the following components
are turned on: Main Relay oven lamp/fan motor/stirrer motor
Power Relay power transformer
2. 120 volts A.C. is supplied to the primary winding of the
power transformer through the contacts of relay 2 and is
converted to about 3.3 volts A.C. output on the filament
winding, and approximately 2 100 volts on the high voltage
winding.
3. The filament winding voltage heats the magnetron
filament and the H.V. is sent to a voltage doubler circuit.

4. The microwave energy produced by the magnetron is
channeled through the wave guide into the cavity
feedbox, and then into the cavity where the food is to be
cooked.
5. Upon completion of the cooking time, the power
transformer, oven lamp, etc. are turned off and the
generation of microwave energy is stopped. The oven will
revert to the OFF condition.
6. When the door is opened during a cook cycle, the
monitor switch, door sensing switch, primary interlock
switch and power relay are deactivated with the following
results: The circuits to the cooling fan motor and the high
voltage components are deenergized, the oven lamp
remains on and the digital readout displays the time
remaining in the cook cycle when the door was opened.
7. The monitor switch electrically monitors the operation
of the primary interlock switch and the power relay and is
mechanically associated with the door so that it will
function in the following sequence: When the door opens,
the primary interlock switch, power relay and door
sensing switch open their contacts, then the monitor
switch contacts close.

DOOR SENSING AND PRIMARY INTERLOCK
SWITCHES
The primary interlock switch is mounted to the plastic
switch bracket on the bottom, the monitor is in the
middle and the door sensing switch is mounted to the
upper portion of the plastic switch bracket.
The power relay is mounted on the smart board.
They are activated by the latch heads on the door. When
the door is opened, the switches interrupt the circuit to
all components, except the oven lamp. A cook cycle
cannot take place until the door is firmly closed thereby
activating both interlock switches. The primary interlock
system consists of the door sensing switch, primary interlock
switch and power relay.
MONITOR SWITCH
The monitor switch is operated (the contacts opened)
indirectly by the bottom latch pawl. The pawl operates a
cam switch, which in turn, actuates the monitor switch.
The switch is intended to render the oven inoperative by
means of blowing the monitor fuse when the contacts of
the primary interlock switch and power relay fail to open
when the door is opened.
Functions:
I . When the door is opened, the monitor switch contact
closes (to the ON condition). At this time the primary
interlock switch and power relay are in the OFF
condition (contacts open).
2. As the door goes to a closed position, the monitor
switch contacts are first opened and then the door sensing
switch and the primary interlock switch
contacts close. (On opening the door, each of these
switches operate inversely.)

3. If the door is opened, and the primary interlock switch and
power relay contacts fail to open, the monitor fuse blows
simultaneously with closing of the monitor switch contacts.
CAUTION: Before replacing a blown monitorfuse, test the
primary interlock switch, door sensing switch, monitor switch
andpower relay contactsfor proper operation.
MONITOR/LINE FUSE
The fuse is an internal 20A fuse, see mini manual for test
procedure.
CAUTION: Before replacing a blown monitorfuse, test the
primary interlock switch, door sensing switch, monitor switch
andpower relay contacts for proper operation. If the
monitorfuse is blown by improper switch operation,
monitorfuse and switch must he replaced even if the monitor
switch operates normally.
PRIMARY INTERLOCK SYSTEM TEST
Disconnect the oven from power supply.
Door Sensing Switch
Isolate the switch and connect the ohmmeter to the common
(COM.) and normally open (NO) terminal of the switch, the
meter should indicate an open circuit with the door open and
a closed circuit with the door closed. If improper operation is
indicated, replace the door sensing switch.
Power Relay
Disconnect two (2) wire leads (plastic - squeeze) from the
male tab terminals on the printed wiring circuit board pro-
vided in the control panel assembly. The tab terminals are
located in the area of the circuit board on the component
side, and are connected to the contacts of the power relay.
Check the state of the relay contacts using an ohmmeter.
The relay contacts should be open. If the relay contacts are
closed, replace the circuit board entirely.
Primary Interlock Switch Test
Isolate the switch and connect the ohmmeter to the common
(COM.) and normally open (NO) terminal of the switch. The
meter should indicate an open circuit with the door open and
a closed circuit with the door closed. If improper operation is
indicated, replace the primary interlock switch.

any reason. THE MAXIMUM LEAKAGE IS 4MW/CM
2
GUIDELINES FOR ADJUSTMENT OF DOOR
SENSING, PRIMARY INTERLOCK AND
MONITOR SWITCH
If the door sensing switch, primary interlock switch and
monitor switch do not operate properly due to a
misadjustment, the following adjustment should be made
1. Loosen the two (2) screws holding latch switch bracket
to the component compartment flange.
2. With door closed, adjust latch switch bracket by
moving it back and forth, and up and down. In and out
play of the door allowed by the upper and lower position
of the latch switch bracket should be less than 0.5mm
(.02"). The vertical position of the latch switch bracket
should be placed where the door sensing switch and
primary interlock switch have activated with the door
closed.
3. Firmly secure the screws with washers.
4. Check the door sensing switch operation. If the door
sensing switch has not activated with the door closed,
loosen screw and adjust the latch switch bracket.
After adjustment, check the following:
1. In and out play of door remains less than 0.5mm (.02")
when in latched position. First check upper position of
latch switch bracket, pushing and pulling upper portion of
door toward tile oven face. Then check lower portion of
the latch switch bracket, pushing and pulling lower
portion of the door toward the oven face. Both results
(movement of the door) should be less than 0.5mm
(.02").
2. The door sensing switch and primary interlock switch
interrupt the circuit before the door can be opened.
3. Monitor switch contacts close when door is opened.
4. Reinstall outer case and check for microwave leakage
around door with an approved microwave survey meter.
19
DOOR ASSEMBLY
The door assembly will be available as a complete
assembly with handle. The handle will also be available
as a separate part as will the rest of the door as seen in
the door breakdown.
To Adjust Door:
(Alignment with control panel)
1. Remove top grille - 2 screws.
2. Remove bottom panel - 3 screws at front.
3. Loosen top and bottom 5/16" hinge screws. The screw
holes are slotted to allow for minimal movement. Align door
and tighten screws.
5. Check interlocks and monitor for proper operation. Check
door for microwave leakage with approved meter.
To Remove Door:
1. Remove power, top grille and short out capacitor
2. Remove the 4 (2 on top & 2 on bottom) 5/16" head screws
on door hinges and #2 phillips head screw on top.
3. Door will pull away from unit with the hinges attached to
the door.
4. When reinstalling door reverse procedure and a
to the control panel before securing door hinge screws.
NOTE: Door on a microwave oven is designed to act as
an electronic seal preventing the leakage of microwave
energy from oven cavity during cook cycle. This
function does not require that door be airtight, moisture
(condensation) tight or light-tight. Therefore, occa-
sional appearance of moisture, light or sensing of
gentle warm air movement around oven door is not
abnormal an do not of themselves, indicate a leakage of
microwave energy from oven cavity. If such were the
case, the oven could not be equipped with a vent, the
very purpose of which is to exhaust vapor-laden air
from oven cavity.
To Remove Door Handle:
With door open:
1. Remove inner door trim.
2. Remove door handle screws.

ANTENNA
A motor drives the antenna assembly and is located at the
top of the cavity. This oven uses a top feed wave guide. The
antenna blade rests on a depression inside the antenna
cover. An antenna motor shaft fits into the assembly to drive
it. When the antenna cover is removed the antenna slides off
the antenna motor shaft.
To Remove Antenna Motor:
1. Disconnect power and remove grille.
2. Remove antenna/light cover.
3. Release wiring to motor.
4. Remove two screws (snubby screwdriver) holding motor to
waveguide.
5. Lift and remove motor.
TURNTABLE
The turntable shelf is made of a ceramic type material and
the supporter ring that it rests on is plastic. The shelf also
sits on and is turned by the motor coupling, which can turn in
either direction. The turntable shelf must be used when using
oven. The turntable motor is mounted to the bottom of the
cavity. The bottom plate of the microwave covers the motor
and has to be lowered to gain access to the two screws that
secure motor.
To Remove Turntable:
1. Disconnect oven from power supply.
2. Remove ceramic shelf and supporter from cavity.
3. Remove 3 screws securing bottom plate to unit and rotate
down.
4. Disconnect motor leads, two screws holding motor, motor
coupler will stay in oven.
5. When reinstalling motor it will have a "D" shaft on it that
will match the coupling.
NOTE: The turntable motor is 23V, and is NOT interchange-
able with the antenna motor.

blade screwdriver, the push pin (fastener) located in
the antenna cover.
2. Turn the antenna cover counterclockwise, this will
free the tabs that are captured by the spaces built into
the ceiling.
HIGH VOLTAGE CAPACITOR
The high voltage capacitor should always be discharged
by shorting a terminal with I or 2 screwdrivers or with I
screwdriver with a grounded wire attached. The capacitor
has an internal discharge "shunt" resistor, but this me-
chanical discharge procedure should always be followed
for personal safety.
If the capacitor is open, no high voltage will be available to
the magnetron. Disconnect input leads and check for
short or open between the terminal using an ohmmeter.
21
Checking with a high ohm scale, if the high voltage capaci-
tor is normal, the meter will indicate continuity for a short
time and should indicate an open circuit once the capacitor
is charged. If the above is not the case, check the capacitor
with an ohmmeter to see if it is shorted between either of the
terminals and case. If it is shorted, replace the capacitor.
To Replace Capacitor:
1. Disconnect power. Remove grille.
2. Discharge capacitor and disconnect leads.
3. Remove mounting screw that secures capacitor bracket.
4. Slide mounting bracket out of slot and pull out capacitor.
RECTIFIER/DIODE
The rectifier is located in the upper right hand portion of the
service area next to the capacitor. It can be checked for
continuity in one direction and an open in the opposite
direction (meter must be able to forward bias rectifier). If a
short is indicated in both directions, or if an infinite resis-
tance is read in both directions, the rectifier is probably
defective and should be replaced.
To Replace Rectifier/Diode:
1. Disconnect power. Lower control to service position.
2. Discharge capacitor and disconnect leads to capacitor.
3. Remove mounting screw that secures capacitor bracket
and diode ground screw.
4. Slide mounting bracket out of slot and pull out capacitor/
diode assembly.
5. Remove diode which is mounted to capacitor with one
screw.
THERMAL CUTOUTS (TCO'S)
There are 4 different thermal cutouts in this unit with 4
different purposes.
They are:
1. Oven thermal cutout (flame sensor), on cavity top.
2. Hood thermal cutout, inside control area on duct.
3. Bottom thermal cutout, on floor of control area.
4. Magnetron thermal cutout, on rnagnetron.
OVEN THERMAL CUTOUT (FLAME SENSOR)
The Oven Thermal cutout (Cavity TCO) is located on the top
side of the oven cavity, to the left of the humidity sensor by
the cavity exhaust. The thermal cutout is rated at 212
0
F.
(100
0
C) and is nonresettable. If thermal cutout opens, look
for cause. If there was a fire in the cavity all wiring must be
inspected to insure that insulation from the wires was not
burned or melted away.
1. Remove screw holding cover and remove cover.
2. Slide cutout from retaining clip and remove wiring.
NOTE: if this cutout opened there would only be power up to
lead from the fuse. Everything behind it would be dead.

HOOD THERMAL CUTOUT
This cutout will protect the touch control from excessive heat
by turning the vent fan on at low speed. If the surface units of
the range are used for long periods of time heat will build up
and could damage the microwave control. In order to prevent
this a thermal cut out is installed on the duct behind the
control. This cutout will close (158'F- vent fan energized) and
open (104'F- vent fan de-energized) depending on tempera-
tures it senses.
To Remove Hood Cutout:
1. Disconnect power and put touch control in service position.
2. Remove two wire leads and unscrew two screws capturing
cutout on duct.
NOTE: If this cutout were to open it would be difficult to
detect. The only time it functions is during an overheat
condition. It will he normally open when checked with an
ohmmeter.
BOTTOM THERMAL CUTOUT
During a fire on the stove the heat could be intense enough
to close the Hood Thermal Cutout and force the fan to run.
While at moderate high temperatures we do want it to run,
however during a fire it is advantageous to NOT have the
vent fan running. So if a fire were to start on the stove top the
Bottom Thermostat would open (248'F) and remove all power
to the microwave oven. This cutout is designed to not be
resettable.
To Remove Bottom Thermal Cutout:
1. Disconnect power and put touch control in service position.
2. Remove two wire leads and unscrew two screws holding
cutout to floor behind touch control.
NOTE: If this cutout were to open the microwave oven would
be totally dead. It is a normally closed cutout when checked
with an ohmmeter for continuity.
MAGNETRON THERMAL CUTOUT
The magnetron thermal cutout is located above the leads to
the magnetron. It is designed to prevent damage to the
magnetron if an overheated condition develops in the tube
due to cooling fan failure, obstructed air ducts, dirty or
blocked air intake.
Under normal operation, the magnetron thermal cutout
remains closed. However, when abnormally high tempera-
tures are reached within the magnetron, the magnetron
thermal cutout will open at 320F causing the oven to shut
down. After the temperature drops to 140
O
F it will reset and
cooking will be able to resume.
To Remove Magnetron Thermal Cutout:
1. See Removing Magnetron.
NOTE: The Mag TCO is wired across the neutral (return) leg
of the power to the board connector. Therefore, the board will
go dead but the vent fan and cooktop lights would still
operate if the TCO were to open.

SENSOR
The sensor is a plug-in device located in the air exhaust
duct, behind the grille on the left side.
To Service:
1. Remove grille.
2. Separate retainer from receptacle and unplug sensor.
GAS SENSOR TEST
Microwave sensor cooking uses a special gas sensor which
detects both humidity (steam) and hydrocarbons (food
odors) during the cooking process.
Checking the initial sensor cooking condition:
1. The oven should be plugged in at least five minutes
before sensor cooking.
2. Room temperature should not exceed 95'F (350C).
3. The unit should not be installed in any area where heat
and steam are generated, for example, next to a conven-
tional surface unit.
4. Exhaust vents are provided on the back of the unit for
proper cooling and air flow in the cavity. To permit adequate
ventilation, be sure to install so as not to block these vents.
There should be some space for air circulation.
5. Be sure the exterior of the cooking container and the
interior of the oven are dry. Wipe off any moisture with a dry
cloth or paper towel.
6. The Sensor works with food at normal storage tempera-
ture. For example, chicken pieces would be at refrigerator
temperature and canned soup at room temperature.
7. Avoid using aerosol sprays or cleaning solvents near the
oven while using Sensor settings. The sensor will detect the
vapor given off by the spray and turn off before food is
properly cooked.
8. After about 2 to 9 minutes if the sensor has not detected
the vapor of the food, ERROR will appear and the oven will
shut off.
SENSOR TEST (QUICK TEST)
1. With 2 fingers touch and hold the following pads at the
same time:
7 and 8
2. Observe diagnostic number in display (numbers approxi-
mate)
* 15-185 (Normal -verify with "detection test")
* 213 or higher (Sensor failed open, sensor unplugged,
wiring, or.smart board)
* Less then 6 (shorted sensor, or smart board)
NOTE: Only heater terminals (H) can be checked with
ohmmeter (30 Ohms).
CAUTION- DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CHECK
SENSOR TERMINALS (CAN DAMAGE SEN-
SOR).

PROBE RECEPTACLE
Receptacle is located on right hand side of cavity. The probe
is a sensor that has a thermistor swagged in the tip of a
stainless steel tube. The probe can be checked by using an
ohmmeter. If inserted into a container of hot water the
resistance will visibly drop.
To remove probe receptacle:
1. Disconnect power, put touch control in service position.
2. Remove black access cover (2 screws).
3. Remove nut from inside cavity.
4. Unplug wiring from smart board and remove.
THE FOLLOWING COMPONENTS REQUIRE
REMOVAL OF MICROWAVE OVEN FROM
INSTALLATION FOR SERVICING.
VENT EXHAUST BLOWER SERVICE
The blower is a two speed (HI-LO) capacitor run blower
assembly located on top of the spacemaker. The blower is
operated by relays located on the smart board.
The blower motor has 3 windings which can be tested for
continuity from the front by removing the top grille and
opening the control panel.
To Test Blower Windings:
1. Disconnect power and remove grille.
2. Open control panel and discharge capacitor.
3. Disconnect two wires to run capacitor. Continuity test
across the two wires should be approximately 75 ohms of
resistance. This test allows you to read across all three
windings at the same time.
To Remove Vent Blower:
1. Remove unit from its installation.
2. Remove 1 screw under damper, and 2 screws on
rear.(1400 series).
3. Remove 1 screw under damper and 1 screw on rear (1600

MAGNETRON FAN
The magnetron fan motor drives a blade which draws in
cool external air. This cool air is directed through the air
vanes surrounding the magnetron and cools the mag
assembly. Most of the air is then exhausted directly
through the vents. The magnetron blower is located
behind the magnetron and above the high voltage trans-
former.
To service this component unit must be removed from
installation and cover removed.
To Replace Magnetron Fan:
I .Disconnect power, remove adapter assembly if
vertical exhaust.
2. Follow steps 1-5 in removing power transformer.
3. Disconnect motor leads and ground wire.
4. Remove plastic housing - I screw at top middle and
release tabs in front by the latch switches.
5. Disconnect 120V supply to HV transformer.
6. Remove two screws holding fan housing in place.

MAGNETRON
The magnetron location is on the side of the cavity with a top
waveguide. The magnetron thermal cutout will still be at-
tached to the side of the mag by two screws. It is resettable.
MAGNETRON ASSEMBLY TEST
High voltages are present during the cook cycle, so extreme
caution should be observed. Disconnect oven from power
supply and discharge the high voltage capacitor before
touching any oven components or wiring.
To test for an open filament, isolate the magnetron from the
high voltage circuit. A continuity check across the magnetron
filament leads should indicate less than I ohm.
To test for a shorted magnetron, connect the ohmmeter leads
between the magnetron filament leads and chassis ground,
This test should indicate an infinite resistance. If there is little
or low resistance the magnetron is grounded and must be
replaced.
To Replace Magnetron:
1. Disconnect power, remove adapter assembly if vertical
exhaust.
2. Follow steps 1-5 in removing power transformer. HV
transformer must be removed to remove magnetron. (see
REMOVING HV TRANSFORMER)
3. Disconnect magnetron wiring.
4. Loosen top black plastic duct to gain access to 4 Magne-
tron mounting screws and remove screws.
5. Release the front tab of the magnetron fan housing and
remove magnetron.
6. Transfer side mounting bracket to new magnetron.
CAUTION! During replacement, be certain R.F. anode gasket
is in place around anode stub. PERFORM MICROWAVE
LEAKAGE TEST.

POWER PERFORMANCE TEST
1. Measure line voltage (loaded). This test is based on normal voltage variations of 105V to 130V. Low voltage will
affect power and temperature rise. 2. Place WB64X0073 Beaker containing exactly one liter (1,000m 1) 59'F-75'F
water in center of shelf. Record the starting water temperature with an accurate glass thermometer. 3. Set at high
(power level 10) and set time for 2 minutes and 3 seconds. Touch START.

SERVICING TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
When troubleshooting the microwave oven, it is helpful to
follow the Sequence of Operation in performing the
checks. Many of the possible causes of trouble will require
that a specific test be performed. These tests are given a
procedure letter which will be found in the "Test Proce-
dure" section.
IMPORTANT: If the oven becomes inoperative because
of a blown monitor fuse in the monitor switch, primary
interlock relay and secondary interlock switch circuit,
check the monitor switch, primary interlock relay, door
sensing switch and secondary interlock switch before
replacing the monitor fuse.
