cleaning and 
maintaining your 
microwave oven
Keeping your microwave oven clean improves 
its performance, wards off unnecessary repairs, 
and lengthens its life.
It’s best to clean spills on the outside of your microwave 
oven as they occur. Use a soft cloth and warm, soapy 
water. Rinse and dry. 
Do not get water into the vents. Never use abrasive 
products or chemical solvents such as ammonia or 
alcohol as they can damage the appearance of your 
Cleaning under your microwave oven
Regularly clean grease and dust from the bottom of your 
microwave using a solution of warm water and detergent.
Cleaning the control panel
Wipe with a damp cloth and dry thoroughly. Do not 
use cleaning sprays, large amounts of soap and water, 
abrasives, or sharp objects on the panel as it is easily 
Cleaning the door and door seals
Always ensure that the door seals are clean and that the 
door closes properly. Take particular care when cleaning 
the door seals to ensure that no particles accumulate and 
prevent the door from closing correctly. Wash the glass 
door with very mild soap and water. Be sure to use a soft 
cloth to avoid scratching. 
If a thin film of water accumulates on the inside or outside 
of the oven door, wipe it off with a soft cloth. A thin water 
film can accumulate when you operate the oven at high 
humidity and in no way indicates microwave leakage.
Ensure that the microwave oven has cooled down 
before cleaning it to avoid injury.
Remove the glass tray from the oven when cleaning 
the oven or tray. To prevent the tray from breaking, 
handle it with care and do not put it in water 
immediately after cooking. Wash the tray carefully in 
warm sudsy water or in the dishwasher.
Clean the interior surfaces (oven cavity) of your microwave 
oven periodically to remove any splashes or stains. To 
remove hardened food articles and remove smells, place 
2 cups of water (add lemon juice for extra freshness) into 
a four-cup measuring glass. Run the microwave at High 
power for 5 minutes or until the water boils. Let water 
stand in the oven for one or two minutes.
