the oven off and disconnect the power cord, or shut off power at the
fuse or circuit breaker panel. If the door is opened, the fire may
spread.
• Precaution for safe use to avoid possible exposure to excessive
micro oven energy :
Do not attempt to pull any part of the door by hand to open the door.
Open the door only utilizing the push button located at front-rightbottom side.
• Do not store this appliance outdoors. Do not use near water – for
example, near a kitchen sink, in a wet basement, or near a swimming
pool, etc.
• Keep the inside of the oven clean. Food particles or spattered oils
stuck to the oven walls or floor can cause paint damage and reduce
the efficiency of the oven.
• Do not immerse cord or plug in water.
• Keep cord away from heated surfaces.
• Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter.
• When cleaning door and oven surfaces, use only mild, nonabrasive
soaps or detergents applied with a sponge or soft cloth.

c. If materials inside the oven ignite, keep the oven door closed, turn
the oven off, disconnect the power cord, or shut off the power at
the fuse or circuit breaker panel.
d. Do not use the oven compartment for storage purposes. Do not
leave paper products, cooking utensils, or food in the oven when
not in use.
• Do not try to preheat oven or operate while empty.
• Do not cook without the glass tray in place on the oven floor. Food will
not cook properly without the tray.
• Do not defrost frozen beverages in narrow-necked bottles. The
containers can break.
• Dishes and containers can become hot. Handle with care.
• Carefully remove container coverings, directing steam away from
hands and face.
• Remove lids from baby food before heating. After heating baby food,
stir well and test temperature by tasting before serving.
IMPORTANT GROUNDING
INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance must be grounded. In the event of an electrical
short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of electric shock by
providing an escape wire for the electrical current. This
appliance is equipped with a cord that includes a grounding wire
and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an outlet
that is properly installed and grounded. Plug the three-prong
power cord into a properly grounded outlet of standard 115-120
voltage, 60 Hz. Your oven should be the only appliance on this
circuit.

Safety
Note:
WARNING
Connect the oven to a 20A circuit.
When connecting the oven to a 15A circuit, make sure
that circuit breaker is operable.
Liquids, such as water, coffee, or tea are able to be overheated
beyond the boiling point without appearing to be boiling. Visible
bubbling or boiling when the container is removed from the
microwave oven is not always present. THIS COULD RESULT
IN VERY HOT LIQUIDS SUDDENLY BOILING OVER WHEN
THE CONTAINER IS DISTURBED OR A SPOON OR OTHER
UTENSIL IS INSERTED INTO THE LIQUID.
Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk
of electric shock. Consult a qualified electrician or
servicer if you do not understand the grounding
instructions or if you are not sure if the appliance is
properly grounded.
Use of Extension Cords
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risk of
becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. Longer
cord sets or extension cords are available and may be used if
care is exercised in their use. If a long cord or extension cord is
used:
To reduce the risk of injury to persons:
1. The marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension cord should
be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance.
2. The extension cord must be a grounding-type 3-wire cord and it must
be plugged into a 3-slot outlet.
3. The longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the
counter top or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or
tripped over accidentally. If you use an extension cord, the interior
light may flicker and the blower may vary when the microwave oven
is on. Cooking times may be longer, too.
1.
2.
3.
4.
Do not overheat the liquid.
Stir the liquid both before and halfway through heating it.
Do not use straight-sided containers with narrow necks.
After heating, allow the container to stand in the microwave
oven for a short time before removing the container.
5. Use extreme care when inserting a spoon or other utensil
into the container.
WARNING
Do not cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the
power cord under any circumstances.

Cooking Techniques
General Tips
Stirring
•
Stir foods such as casseroles and vegetables while cooking to distribute
heat evenly. Food at the outside of the dish absorbs more energy and
heats more quickly, so stir from the outside to the center. The oven will
turn off when you open the door to stir your food.
•
Arrangement
•
Arrange unevenly shaped foods, such as chicken pieces or chops, with
the thicker, meatier parts toward the outside of the turntable where they
receive more microwave energy. To prevent overcooking, place thin or
delicate parts toward the center of the turntable.
•
•
Shielding
Shield food with narrow strips of aluminum foil to prevent overcooking.
Areas that need shielding include poultry wing-tips, the ends of poultry
legs, and corners of square baking dishes. Use only small amounts of
aluminum foil. Larger amounts can damage your oven.
•
Turning
•
Turn foods over midway through cooking to expose all parts to microwave energy. This is especially important with large items such as
roasts.
•
Standing
Foods cooked in the microwave build up internal heat and continue to
cook for a few minutes after the oven stops. Let foods stand to complete
cooking, especially foods such as roasts and whole vegetables. Roasts
need this time to complete cooking in the center without overcooking the
outer areas. All liquids, such as soup or hot chocolate, should be shaken
or stirred when cooking is complete. Let liquids stand a moment before
serving. When heating baby food, stir well and test the temperature
before serving.
Adding Moisture
Microwave energy is attracted to water molecules. Food that is uneven
in moisture content should be covered or allowed to stand so that the
heat disperses evenly. Add a small amount of water to dry food to help it
cook.
18
Dense foods, such as potatoes, take longer to heat than lighter
foods. Foods with a delicate texture should be heated at a low power
level to avoid becoming tough.
Altitude and the type of cookware you are using can affect cooking
time. When using a new recipe, use the minimum cooking time and
check the food occasionally to prevent overcooking.
Foods with a non-porous skin such as potatoes or hot dogs, should
be pierced to prevent bursting.
Frying with heating oil or fat is not recommended. Fat and oil can
suddenly boil over and cause severe burns.
Some ingredients heat faster than others. For example, the jelly
inside a jelly doughnut will be hotter than the dough. Keep this in
mind to avoid burns.
Home canning in the microwave oven is not recommended because
all harmful bacteria may not be destroyed by the microwave heating
process.
Although microwaves do not heat the cookware, the heat from the
food is often transferred to the cookware. Always use pot holders
when removing food from the microwave and instruct children to do
the same.
Making candy in the microwave is not recommended as candy can
heat to very high temperatures. Keep this in mind to avoid injury.

Cooking Instructions
Auto Sensor Cook
Important
The Auto Sensor allows you to cook your food automatically by detecting the amount of moisture generated from the food while cooking.
• When cooking food, many kinds of moisture are generated. The Auto
Sensor determines the proper time and power level by detecting the
moisture from the food, eliminating the need to set the cooking time
and power level.
• When you cover a container with its lid or plastic wrap during Sensor
Cooking, the Auto Sensor will detect the moisture generated after
the container has been saturated with steam.
• Shortly before cooking ends, the remaining cooking time will begin
its count down. This will be a good time for you to rotate or stir the
food for even cooking if it is necessary.
• Before auto sensor cooking food may be seasoned with herbs,
spices or browning sauces. A word of caution though, salt or sugar
may cause burn spots on food so these ingredients should be added
after cooking.
• The More/Less function pad is used to increase or decrease cooking
time. You should use this function to adjust the degree of cooking to
suit your personal taste.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Utensils & Cover For Sensor Cooking
•
•
•
•
•
To obtain good cooking results with this function, follow the
directions for selecting appropriate containers and covers in the
charts in this book.
Always use microwave-safe containers and cover them with their lids
or with plastic wrap. When using plastic wrap, turn back one corner
to allow steam to escape at the proper rate.
Always cover with the lid intended for the utensil being used. If the
utensil does not have its own lid, use plastic wrap.
Fill containers at least half full.
Foods that require stirring or rotating should be stirred or turned
toward the end of the Sensor Cook cycle, after the time has started
to count down on the display.
19
After installing the oven and plugging into an electrical outlet, do not
unplug the power cord. The moisture sensor needs time to stabilize
in order to cook satisfactorily.
It is not advisable to use the auto sensor cooking feature on a
continuous cooking operation, i.e. one cooking operation
immediately after another.
Install the oven in a well ventilated location for proper cooling and
airflow and to ensure the sensor will operate accurately.
To avoid poor results, do not use the Auto sensor when the room
ambient temperature is too high or too low.
Do not use volatile detergent to clean your oven. Vapor resulting
from this detergent may affect the sensor.
Avoid placing the oven near high moisture or gas emitting
appliances, since this will interfere with the proper performance of
the Auto Sensor.
Always keep the inside of the oven clean. Wipe all spills with a damp
cloth.
This oven is designed for household use only.

Vegetables should be washed just before cooking. Often, no extra
water is needed. If dense vegetables such as potatoes, carrots and
green beans are being cooked, add about ¼ cup water.
Small vegetables (sliced carrots, peas, lima beans, etc.) will cook
faster than larger ones.
Whole vegetables, such as potatoes, acorn squash or corn on the
cob, should be arranged in a circle on the turntable before cooking.
They will cook more evenly if turned over after half the cooking time.
Always place vegetables like asparagus and broccoli with the stem
ends pointing towards the edge of the dish and the tips toward the
center.
When cooking cut vegetables, always cover the dish with a lid or
vented microwavable plastic wrap.
Whole, unpeeled vegetables such as potatoes, squash, eggplant,
etc., should have their skin pricked in several spots before cooking to
prevent them from bursting.
For more even cooking, stir or rearrange whole vegetables halfway
through the cooking time.
Generally, the denser the food, the longer the standing time.
(Standing time refers to the time necessary for dense, large foods
and vegetables to finish cooking after they come out of the oven.) A
baked potato can stand on the counter for five minutes before
cooking is completed, while a dish of peas can be served
immediately.

Appendix
Troubleshooting Guide
Using your microwave causes TV or radio interference.
Before you call a repair person for your oven, check this list of possible
problems and solutions.
•
Neither the oven’s display nor the oven operate.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Properly insert the plug into a grounded outlet.
If the outlet is controlled by a wall switch, make sure the wall switch
is turned on.
Remove the plug from the outlet, wait ten seconds, then plug it in
again.
Reset the circuit breaker or replace any blown fuse.
Plug another appliance into the outlet; if the other appliance doesn’t
work, have a qualified electrician repair the outlet.
Plug the oven into a different outlet.
Care and Cleaning
Follow these instructions to clean and care for your oven.
• Keep the inside of the oven clean. Food particles and spilled liquids
can stick to the oven walls, causing the oven to work less efficiently.
• Wipe up spills immediately. Use a damp cloth and mild soap. Do not
use harsh detergents or abrasives.
• To help loosen baked on food particles or liquids, heat two cups of
water (add the juice of one lemon if you desire to keep the oven
fresh) in a four-cup measuring glass at High power for five minutes
or until boiling. Let stand in the oven for one or two minutes.
• Remove the glass tray from the oven when cleaning the oven or tray.
To prevent the tray from breaking, handle it carefully and do not put it
in water immediately after cooking. Wash the tray carefully in warm
sudsy water or in the dishwasher.
• Clean the outside surface of the oven with soap and a damp cloth.
Dry with a soft cloth. To prevent damage to the operating parts of the
oven, don’t let water seep into the openings.
• Wash the door window with very mild soap and water. Be sure to use
a soft cloth to avoid scratching.
• If steam accumulates inside or outside the oven door, wipe with a
soft cloth. Steam can accumulate when operating the oven in high
