Why do blinking lights appear after I press the START/STOP button?
This is a progress bar indicating how far along you are in the preheating cycle.
Why does the preheat progress bar not start from the beginning?
When the unit is warm from previously being used, it will not require the full preheating time.
Should I add my ingredients before or after preheating?
Let the unit preheat before adding ingredients.
Why is my unit emitting smoke?
When using the Grill function, always select the recommended temperature setting. Recommended settings can be found in the Quick Start Guide and in the Inspiration Guide. Make sure the splatter shield is installed.
How do I pause the unit so I can check my food?
When the hood is opened during a cooking function, the unit will automatically pause.
My food is burned.
Do not add food until preheating is complete. For best results, check progress throughout cooking, and remove food when desired level of brownness has been achieved. Remove food immediately after the cook time is complete to avoid overcooking.
My food didn’t cook when air crisping.
For consistent browning, make sure ingredients are arranged in an even layer on the bottom of the crisper basket with no overlapping. Shake loose ingredients during cooking for consistent crispiness.
Why is my food blowing around when air crisping?
Occasionally, the fan will blow lightweight foods around. To prevent this, secure loose food (like the top slice of bread on a sandwich) with toothpicks.
Can I air crisp fresh battered ingredients?
Yes, but use the proper breading technique. It is important to coat foods first with flour, then with egg, and then with bread crumbs. Be sure to press the bread crumbs onto the food so they stick in place. Loose breading may be blown off by the unit’s powerful fan.
The control panel display is no longer illuminated.

Can I cancel or override preheating?
Preheating is highly recommended for best results. skip preheating by selecting the function again after you press the START/STOP button. However, you cannot override preheating when using the Grill function.
How can I deep clean the splatter shield?
The splatter shield should be cleaned after each use and is dishwasher safe. Over time, the splatter shield front tabs and frame may accumulate grease buildup. Soaking the splatter shield overnight will help soften the baked-on grease. After soaking, use the cleaning brush to remove the grease from the stainless steel frame and front tabs.
