Restarting your microfridge after the smoke sensor engages

When the 1st Defense™ Smoke Sensor detects smoke and shuts off the microwave, the control panel will read ERROR and the microwave oven will beep. To reengage the microwave, open the microwave door to dissipate the limited amounts of smoke which caused the 1st Defense™ Smoke Sensor to automatically shut down the microwave. Carefully remove the item which you were reheating or cooking in the microwave. Then, close the door and press the CLEAR/OFF button, which is located on the bottom right of the microwave control panel.
