Changing AP Channel

We have a bunch on APS in a building and one of them is near a microwave and keeps crashing around lunch time and I was wondering...How can I set the channel manually ?

Currently we have DCA enabled on the controller for channel 1,6 and 11 and this AP is stuck on channel 11 witch is causing problem how can I proceed ?

 

Thanks!

First, for stability purposes, upgrade to 7.4.121.X.   Next, you are using 3600 which supports CleanAir.  Enable CleanAir and Persistence Device.  

 

When the the system hears the microwave oven, the WLC will change the power and the channel to the APs most vulnerable to the microwave oven.  Your scenario about the microwave oven is THE selling point for Cisco about CleanAir.

Just to add, microwave can affect the whole 2.4ghz spectrum or only a few on the higher channels. If you have CleanAir, you can enable Persistent Devices. This helps when interferes are hear time and time again.
