Re: power

Normally you press Cook Time, enter the numbers for the time,
then Cook Power, then 5 and then Start.

But it might be easier to just download your owner's manual. You can find it here at the main Whirlpool site's Owner Center:

Re: power

There should be a level button on your control (power level, cook level). Level 5 is the same as 50%.

How to set power settings

Set the time as you normally would to cook your food: i.e. 60 seconds. Hit the power button; 100 will pop up on the screen, as in 100 % of power, enter 50 for 50% power, 70 for 70% etc. Food will cook more evenly this way, not burnt to a crisp on the outside, cold in the center.

I have a Simply Perfect For The Home brand Microwave Oven that I bought from the U.S. Military post here in Schweinfurt, Germany for $50 I live on the economy in my own apartment. The microwave is a 120...

Just as a NOTE: When I bought my Panasonic microwave from AAFES, before I took it home, they sent it through their maintenance department to adjust the internal voltage. Power for the US is 60 HZ. Power in Europe is 50 HZ. Long Technical Explanation shortened: there's more energy (Heat) in 50 Hz than 60HZ especially when used in anything that uses high power. AAFES adjusted the internal power down to compensate and keep from blowing up the unit. Look for a fuse inside. Replace it, then ask AAFES to reconfigure the product for lower power or 50Hz.
Also as a note, many, dare I say most, clocks from the US count the HZ to count time. So if your US clock, say on your coffeepot timer, looses time overseas; it's probably losing 4 hours a day (do the math: 50 hz/60hz=83.333_%. 83.3_%*24 hr=20 hrs or 4 hours lost). So, if your time is set for 7AM coffee start, when you get that cup of coffee at 7:10AM, set your clock forward to 11:10 AM; or at 7PM, make sure it actually says 9PM. It will loose enough time by the next 7AM to be correct.

It depends on the brand and model, but usually it's something like:

Cook Time > 2 > 0 > 0 > Power > 4 > Start, where 4 is 40%, 5 is 50%, etc.
