How to set the timer


The Timer can be set in minutes and seconds, up to 90 to 99 minutes (depending on model), and counts down the set time.

To set the Timer: 

1. Touch Timer Set/Off

The Timer icon will appear in the display.

"Enter Time in Min and Sec" will scroll in the display. If no action is taken after one to two minutes (depending on model), the display will return to the time-of-day mode.

2. Touch the number pads to set the length of time.

3. Touch Timer Set/Off or Start.

When the set time ends, "End" will appear in the display, and end-of-timer tones will sound, followed by reminder tones. When reminder tones sound, "End Timer" appears in the display. If tones are turned off, "Off Timer" will appear in the display as a reminder.

Remember, touching Cancel Off while a cook function is active in the display will cancel the cook function, not the Timer.

4. Touch Timer Set/Off (or Timer Set-Off) or Cancel Off to cancel the Timer when only the Timer is operating.

Touch Timer Set/Off when a cook function is also operating to make the Timer countdown active in the display, and then touch Cancel Off to cancel the Timer. The cook function will continue to operate.

NOTE: The Timer does not start or stop the microwave oven.

While the Timer is in use, the microwave oven can also operate. To see the countdown for 10 seconds while the microwave oven is in use, touch Timer Set/Off (may also be Timer Set-Off or Timer (depending on model).
