Instructions for a Daewoo Microwave

Updated April 17, 2017

Daewoo Electronics is an international company with a sales presence in both the United States and the United Kingdom. The company manufactures home appliances such as refrigerators, washers and dryers, air conditioners and microwave ovens. Daewoo microwaves are perhaps best known for their space-saving and convenience features, such as built-in toasters and microwave convection oven combinations. Digital models incorporate touch pad technology, memory programs and kitchen timers. Accessories like the metal rack assist with grilling, defrosting and convection cooking. It only takes a few moments to learn the basic functions of your Daewoo microwave.

Set your Daewoo microwave on a countertop near an electrical socket and plug it in. Open the door and place the circular roller guide in the centre of the oven cavity, then place the glass cooking tray over it.

Set your food on a microwave-safe dish and then put the dish on the cooking tray and close the door. Make sure that it latches properly.

Turn the upper knob to select a power level. Power levels include "Defrost," "Med-High," or "High." If your Daewoo has a touch pad, touch the "Microwave" button once to set the highest power level. Touch it consecutive times to lower the power level.

Turn the lower knob to set the cooking time. For cooking times less than two minutes, turn the knob up past the two-minute mark, then back to the correct time. For touch pad models, enter in the cooking time with the numerical keys and then press "Start."

Open the door at any time to stop the cooking and check the temperature of your food. Shut the door to automatically continue cooking, or turn the timer knob to the right to add more time. For touch pads, press the "Stop/Clear" button, then key in a new cooking time and press "Start."

Open the door when the timer reaches the "Off" position and take out your food.


Some Daewoo models have preset cooking and automatic defrost buttons. See your owner's manual for further details.


Do not touch the inside of the microwave immediately after use to avoid burns. Keep your appliance away from water, flammable materials and metal objects.
