Learning Mode
The Learning Mode is ideal for learning how to use the oven.
When set, functions can be entered, with real displays and tones,
without actually turning on the microwave generator (magnetron),
grill element or convection element. While functions are operating
in the Learning Mode, the oven light will come on, the fan will run,
and the turntable will rotate (if set ON).
While the Learning Mode is active, the Learn indicator is visible in
the lower, left command area. The indicator is visible while the
oven is in stand-by mode, during programming, and during
Settings & Info menu navigation.
The Learning indicator shares the lower, left command area with
the Timer countdown if both are in operation.
To Activate Learning Mode:
The oven must be off.
1. On the Main Menu, touch “Settings & Info.”
2. On Settings & Info screen, touch “More Choices.”

4. Touch “On” or “Off” to set.

The START control will start any function.
If non-sensor cooking is interrupted, touching the START control
pad will resume the preset cycle.
For added convenience, the “Start” touch pad is also available on
some display screens, and provides the same function as the
START control pad.
The CANCEL control stops all functions except for the Timer and
Learning Mode, and cancels programming in progress.
The oven will also turn off when the door is opened. Close the
door and touch START control or “Continue” on the touch screen
to resume the cycle. A sensor cooking cycle may not be resumed
if interrupted by opening the door.
During programming the CLEAR control changes the numeric
programming values, such as minutes, seconds and cook power
that are active in the display to their default value. For example,
while entering a cook time, touching CLEAR will change the time
you have already entered to “0:00.” The CLEAR control gives an
invalid signal (see “Tones” section) if touched during cooking.
