The Panasonic SD978S is a 2.2-cubic-foot microwave that can be placed on a counter top or built in to your kitchen. It has a one-touch sensor to cook and reheat food, a dial control panel and an inverter turbo defrost. Its clock uses a 12-hour display. If you need to reset the clock, such as after a power failure, to adjust it for daylight saving time, or because you have moved the microwave to a different time zone, you can do so easily by following a few quick steps.


Step 1

Press the "Timer/Clock" button on the front panel twice. The colon will flash.
