It depends on the brand and model, but it's generally:

Time Cook, 2, 0, 0, Power Level, 5, Start or just 2, 0, 0, Power Level, 5, Start.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

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.

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.

My mother just bought an Emerson MW8119 Microwave and can't figure out how to only set say 15 seconds cook time. Is it possible?


Hi! I just purchased the same microwave, and came online to find the solution. I was then able to find the correct answer to this problem. On this model, Emerson does not put a "time cook" button for odd cook times such as 15 seconds. Instead, they have you push the "Power Button" prior to setting the cook time.

If you want to cook on full power, press the power button once, and then enter your cooking time and press start. If you want to cook on 50% power or 30% power or something like that, push the "Power Button" several times until the appropriate power level is displayed, then enter the cook time and press start.

The reason that it starts up right away when *********** pushes the 1 button is because Emerson has the quick cooking feature for 1 minute through 6 minutes. You only have to push the number once to get the 1 minute cook time or anywhere through 6 minutes respectively.

Hope this helps!

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:
