The oven’s controls are accessed through its control panel and interactive touch display.
NOTE: Due to the sensitivity of the control panel, we have provided special instructions for cleaning the panel as well as the touch
screen display. See “General Cleaning” section for cleaning instructions.
Control Panel
The control panel houses basic controls and Quick touch
controls. The control pads are very sensitive, and require only a
light touch to activate.
For more information about the individual controls, see their
respective sections in this manual.
Interactive Touch Display
The display area functions as both a display and an interactive,
menu-driven touch control. It is designed to be easily navigable,
guiding you through the menus, offering multiple selections,
accepting your input and executing your commands. It also
provides instructions, tips, and displays.
When power is first supplied to the oven, the welcome screen
appears, asking whether you would like to set the clock. Touch
“Yes” and set the clock (see “Clock” section), or touch “No” and
the time will default to 12:00 p.m. If the welcome screen appears
at any other time, a power failure has occurred. Reset the clock if
When the oven is not in use (in standby mode), the display shows
the Main Menu and the date and time of day, if they are set to be
displayed. See “Clock” and “Date” sections. After 2 minutes of
inactivity, the display will go into sleep mode. See “Display
Backlight” section.
During programming, the display shows menus, servings and
weights, cooking time/power/temperature settings, preheating
instructions, and/or cookware and preparation instructions.
If an attempt is made to start the oven more than 5 minutes after
the food has been placed inside, a screen will appear, and 4
tones will sound, indicating that the door needs to be opened
and closed again before the oven will accept the start command.
During a cooking cycle, the display shows progress bar (sensor
functions only, see “Progress Bar” section), cooking animation
(see “Cooking Animation” section), and the countdown of cook
time remaining. The display will also give prompts to tend to the
food during certain automatic cycles.
Touch Screen
The LCD touch screen is used to make menu selections, adjust
settings and input commands.
Menu selections and input adjustments are made in the center
portion of the screen, and the command inputs (start, continue,
back, cancel, etc.) are made in the bottom portion of the screen.
Screen titles and descriptions are displayed in the top portion of
the screen, which accepts no input. A light- to medium-pressure
touch of the fingertip will activate the menu choice.
