Energy Conservation Program: Test Procedure for Microwave Ovens
Document Number: 2021-16023
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-08-03
Agency: Department of Energy
On November 14, 2019, the U.S. Department of Energy (``DOE'') published a notice of proposed rulemaking (``NOPR'') for the test procedure for microwave ovens. Following receipt of comments, DOE is publishing this supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (``SNOPR'') for the limited purpose of clarifying the current procedure for testing a microwave oven that has a connected (i.e., network) function, which is generally to disable the connected function when measuring standby mode power consumption. Further, DOE proposes to explicitly specify in its test procedure that standby power be measured with the connected function enabled if the means for disabling the network function are not provided in the manufacturer's user manual. DOE is seeking comment from interested parties on the proposal.
