The numbers DO NOT equal a certain power level Erin. They equal a percentage! This is very confusing. Even the factory reps. can't explain it adequately. I recently replaced my old 600 watt oven with a GE 1100 watt model. The 600 watt unit came with a great cookbook. (I searched the internet but couldn't find one for the GE oven and the factory was no help!) A chicken recipe in the 600 cookbook said cook on high for 30 minutes. Since 600 is approx. half of 1100, I cooked on high for 15 minutes. Result: Uncooked chicken...

The next time I cooked 30 minutes on 50% power (button 5) and It came out OK. I have since used 50% power with meats in cooking bags with good results. Remember to check for correct temp. with a meat thermometer when oven stops. Trial and error is your best test at this point I'm afraid. Also you may want to type "Microwave Conversion Chart" into your browser. You will get some additional information from this. But read carefully!

How do I set up the power level on a Hamilton Beach microwave model number is p100n30als3b


I believe all you need to do is first press the 'Power Level' button, then select a number on the keypad between 1 and 100 (where 100 is full power, 50 is half power, etc), then Press 'Time Cook' and enter the number of minutes and seconds as usual. I'd suggest testing on a cup of water so you don't risk overheating anything. And never run a microwave completely empty.

Good luck.

I have never used the power feature and now I need to and cant find manual. How does the power feature work. I need to operate the microwave on medium power for one minute.


1 Use the number buttons to set a cooking
time. You can set a time from one second to
99 minutes, 99 seconds. To set a time over
one minute, enter the seconds too. For
example, to set 20 minutes, enter 2, 0, 0, 0 .
2 If you want to set the power level to
something other than High, press the Power
Level button, then use the number buttons
to enter a power level.

Model 26961 rated 13 amps. about how many watts would that equal?


the unit has a rating usually on the inside label ior the door somewhere...
you know the voltage allready... 120... multiply the 13 amps x the voltage... and presto 1560...
you can multiply that by .707 and get the RMS value... 1102

so I consider the microwave to be a 1000Watt unit... pretty easy... bu8t you wonder where did I get the numbers... like .707...
It's to compensate the peak to thr RMS... root mean square... lets just call it "Average"

Microwave does not cook


In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man.
Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

Reduce the Power from 100


Normally you press Time Cook > Power Level > # (Where # is a number 1-9, standing for 10-90%).

Power


You can download some models' owner's manuals here: http://www.samsung.com/support/productsupport/download/index.aspx But the attached diagram shows how power levels are categorized or rated. When you want to cook at a power level other than high, you normally hit POWER then a number from 1-0. On some models you press POWER repeatedly until it shows the power level you want.
