You have to enter your cooking time and THEN hit the "power level" button. Most likely, the display will read "the current power level is set to 10" or something like that. just go ahead and put in the number for the percent you want.
For example, hit 5 for 50% power. Then, hit "start."

If the model number is correct, the instructions on how to change the power level settings on your microwave oven begin on page 14 of the owner's manual. If you no longer have an owner's manual, you can obtain a replacement at managemylife.com.

How do you change the power level and what are they called?


Not all microwaves have the option to change power output but if the do, Full Power, Half Power and Defrost. The Defrost setting provides half power for about 15 seconds and then pauses for about 30 seconds before giving another 15 seconds and carries on doing this until the timer ends. It can also be used for keeping food warm once cooked.

Hi sharp microwave R-33ST 900w was used to defrost now won't heat anything up how do I change settings back?


It should default to the highest power setting.

If not, you can reset it by unplugging the power for a minute or two, plugging it back in, and setting the clock.

Otherwise, refer to your owner's manual.

Everything works fine, except my food is still cold


Check the "power" level setting.

Most microwaves allow adjusting the power level from 1 to 10 (or 10 to 100 on some models). 10 (or 100) is the highest/quickest setting.

I can check mine by entering a time...then before pushing "start"....push the "power" button....and change the level if I want.

There is a solid state switching device called a triac "electronic voltage controller" that has malfunctioned, it controls the power level settings when making power selection, It will need to be replaced to correct the problem. This repair should be done by a qualified technician because dangerous high voltages are present.
