2 slices of bread wrapped in paper towel microwave set on defrost set 35 seconds caught fire


Microwaves work by friction. They blast water molecules in the food so they move fast, just like rubbing your hands together makes them hot. Some types of microwave in defrost mode actually apply FULL POWER for a short period of time so to make the product warm to the touch. This heat then penetrates down to the core of the food, ensuring full defrost. In your case the heat was sufficient enough to heat the dry paper towel to set it on fire.
Bread is better defrosted on the low power setting as sliced bread is very thin. Items should only be defrosted on the defrost setting that are thick and need to be completely defrosted on the inside. Remember microwaves only penetrate the surface of food, making that hot. Thermal conduction does the rest.
You should never use paper towels in a microwave unless the instructions for doing the food say so. You wouldn't put a paper towel in a gas or electric oven, so don't put them in a microwave.

How do i defrost in a prestige 3de microwave


If you don't know how to program defrost or if the unit does not have variable power settings, you can put a cup of water in next to the package you want to defrost and run the microwave for 30 seconds at a time. I don't advise defrosting meat in a microwave but I guess sometimes you have to.

How do i use thye defrost


You read the weight of the food on package (in lbs)
Put the food on a microwave safe plate /container.
Close the door.
Press the Defrost by weight button
Enter the weight of the food. The time will be set automatically.
If you have a defrost by time, just decide on the time duration and enter it

How do you defrost on the microwave


What is need to set the program, select defrost function then select the weight of the food to be defrosted and push the value of the weight. Now select the heat value and press start as the processor will then decide the time to defrost.
This is a simple program setting or else you can choose a preset heating defroster program.

I have a Goldstar Multiwave and have lost the manual. Can you defrost by time rather than weight such an a frozen breakfast sandwich?


You can defrost items by time but not with the Q-Defrost or Auto-Defrost functions. (I've found it best to defrost ground beef with timed intervals at power 1. Auto Defrost by weight usually starts cooking the meat. You will need to try it a few times to see how long and what power to use.)

Manage My Life has the manual here: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/52491/GOLDSTAR-Countertop-Microwave-L1005548?brand_name_search=MA1011W . Sears Parts Direct may have a copy that you can order. (I didn't see it listed but didn't check the entire set of parts lists.)

I hope this helps.

Using the Auto Defrost feature on my microwave oven

How do I use the Auto Defrost feature on my microwave oven?
To use the Auto Defrost feature on your microwave oven, please do the following:
  1. Unwrap food, place on the turntable, and close the door.
  2. Touch Defrost.
  3. Select food by entering 1 for Meat, 2 for Poultry or 3 for Fish, or touch Defrost repeatedly to scroll through the food selections.
  4. Enter the weight in pounds:

    Meats and Poultry can be set from 0.2 to 6.6 lb (90 g to 3 kg).
    Fish can be set from 0.2 to 4.4 lb (90 g to 2 kg).

    Doneness may be adjusted at this time by touching Cook Time.
  5. Touch Start. The display will count down the defrost time. When the cycle ends, "End" will appear in the display, and the end-of-cycle tones will sound, followed by reminder tones.
  6. Touch Cancel Off or open the door to clear the display and/or stop reminder tones.
The Defrost system has 3 categories: Meat, Poultry and Fish. It should not be used for food left outside the freezer more than 20 minutes and frozen ready-made food. Use the following chart as a guide.


Here is your owners manual:

How to defrost


Can only suggest trial and error to "Start it".
Since it belonged to ***********, would she know?

Alternatively, use the lowest possible power setting instead of the defrost function but take care not to "Over defrost" if using this method.
