PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID
POSSIBLE EXPOSURE TO
EXCESSIVE MICROWAW
ENERGY...
DO NOT attempt to
operate this oven with
the door open since
open-door
operation
can result in harmful
exposure to microwave energy. It is important not to defeat
or tamper with the
safety interlocks.
DO NOT place any
object between the
oven front face and
the door or allow soil
or cleaner residue to
accumulate
on sealing surfaces.
DO NOT operate the
oven if it is damaged
It is particularly
important that the oven
door close properly
and that there is no
damage
to the
(1) Door (bent),
(2) Hinges and
latches [broken or
loosened),
(3) Door seals and
sealing surfaces.
DO NOT operate
the microwave
oven
if the door window is
broken.
The microwave
oven
should be checked
for microwave
leakage by qualified service personnel after a

IMPORTANT
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
For Use of Microwave
Upper Oven
Microwave
ovens have been used successfully
in homes for
a number of years. They are thoroughly
tested for safe and
efficient operation.
However, as with any appliance,
there are
special installation
and safety precautions
which must be
followed to ensure safe and satisfactory
operation
and prevent damage to the unit.
1. Read all instructions
before
using appliance.
2. Read
and
follow
the
specific
“PRECAUTIONS
TO
AVOID POSSIBLE EXPOSURE TO
EXCESSIVE MICROWAVE ENERGY” found on page 4.
3. This appliance
must be
installed
and
properly
grounded
in accordance
with
the separately
provided
Installation Instructions.
4. Some products
such as
whole eggs and sealed containers - for example, closed
glass jars - may explode and
should not be heated in this
oven.
5. Use this appliance
only for
its intended use as described
in this manual.
6. As with any appliance,
close supervision is necessary
when used by children.
7. Do
not
operate
appliance
If It has damaiheids
cord or plug, if it is not working
properly,
or if it has been
damaged
or dropped.
Electric shock, fire or other hazards
may result.
8. This appliance
should be
serviced
only by qualified
service
personnel.
Call a
Whirlpool
authorized
TECHCARE!’ Service Company

continued
on next page
E
12. To reduce the risk of fire in
the oven cavity:
a. Do not overcot
overcook
food.
Carefully attend apt
appliance if
paper, plastic, or other
comot
bustible materials are
ar placed
inside the oven to facilitate
cooking. Paper can char or
burn, and some plastics can
melt if used when heating
foods.
b. Test dinnerware
or cookware before using. See page
37. Some dishes (melamine,
Centura,@ etc.] absorb microwave energy, becoming too
hot to handle and slowing
cooking times. Remove wire
twist-ties from paper or plastic
bags before placing bag in
oven. Cooking in metal containers can damage the oven.
So can containers with hidden
metal (twist-ties, foil lining, staples, metallic glaze or trim.]
c. If materials inside the oven
should ignite, keep oven door
closed, turn oven off, and disconnect the power cord, or
shut off power at the fuse or circuit breaker panel.
13. Read and follow “OPERATING SAFETY PRECAUTIONS”
starting on page 36.

Important
l
packed
things to remember
to get the best cooking
results.
ALWAYS cook food for the minimum recommended
cooking time. If necessary, add time in one or two minute periods, then check for doneness to
avoid overcooking
the food.
Stir, turn or rearrange
the food being cooked about halfway through the
cooking time for most even doneness with all recipes.
If a glass cover is not available,
use waxpaper,
paper towels or microwave
approved
plastic wrap. Turn back a corner to vent steam during cooking.

Cooking at Lower Cook Powers
For best results, some recipes call for lower Cook Powers. The lower the Cook
Power, the slower the cooking. Each Number Pad also stands for a different
percentage
of Cook Power. Many recipes in your MICRO MENUS@ Cookbook
tell you, by number, which Cook Power to use. Recipes in other books and
magazines
may tell you by name (HI, MED, LO, etc.) or percentage
(IO%, 50%,
80%, etc.).

use probe for foods that need to simmer.
NOTE: Some foods are started using a timed (COOK) cycle and finished
bY using the temperature
(PROBE TEMP) cycle. You can set PROBE TEMP to
follow COOK 1 or COOK 2 to avoid the need to reset the oven halfway
through the cycle. PROBE TEMP can be programmed
with the Temperature

Changing the Temperature
l
Setting
When using the Temperature
Probe, PROBE TEMP settings can be changed
before or during operation:
-Touch PROBE TEMP
-Touch number for new temperature.
-Touch START.The oven will continue cooking to the new temperature.
If the new temperature
is lower than the temperature
of the food, the
oven will shut off.
Temperature
probe cooking tips
For casseroles, the tip
of the probe should
be in the center of the
food. Stir foods when
recommended.
Replace the probe.
28
For liquids, balance
the probe on a
wooden spoon or
spatula so the tip of
the probe is in the
center of the liquid.
For roasts, the tip of
the probe should be
inthecenterofthe
largest muscle, but
not touching fat or
bone.
l
l
l
Casseroles cooked using the Temperature Probe should be made
from precooked
foods. Do not use
raw meats, raw vegetables
and
cream sauces in casseroles.
Dry casseroles do not work well.
Thaw frozen casseroles and meats
in the microwave
oven before
inserting the probe.
l
l
l
If you are cooking individual
servings such as mugs of soup, check
the probe setting in several of the
items - all the mugs may not heat
at the same rate.
Dry meat loaf mixtures don’t work
well.
Remember that roasts may vary
in size, shape and composition.
Use the timings for minutes per
pound as a guide as well as the
Temperature
Probe.
Cleaning the Probe
I. Remove probe from microwave
oven using hot pads.
2. Wipe probe with a hot soapy cloth. Use a plastic scouring pad to remove
stubborn foods.
3. Probe may be placed in the silverware basket of the dishwasher,

General
Information
If your electric power
line or outlet voltage is
less than the normal 240
volts (120 volts for gas
models], cooking times
may be longer.
To test a dish for safe
use- put it into the oven
with a cup Of water
beside it. Cook on HIGH

minute. If the dish gets
hot and water stays
cool. do not use it.
If you need service or assistance,
we suggest you follow these five steps:
1. Before calling for
assistance...
Performance
problems often result
from little things you can find and fix
yourself without tools of any kind.
If nothing operates:
Is the power supply cord plugged
into a live circuit with the proper
voltage? (See Installation
Instructions.)
l Have
you checked
your home’s
main fuse or circuit breaker box?
l Have
you checked
the electric
company
for a power failure?
l
If the microwave
oven will not run:
Is the oven being used as a timer?
l If the Temperature
Probe is being
used, is it plugged
tightly into its
socket?
l Is the door
firmly closed and
latched?
l Did you touch
START?
l Did you follow
the directions
exactly?
l
If the microwave
cooking times
seem too long:
l Is the electric
supply to your home
low or lower than normal? Your
electric company
can tell you if the
line voltage is low.
l Is the Cook
Power at the recommended setting?
l Are you allowing
for more time
when cooking more food at one
time?
If the Display shows a time counting
down but the oven is not cooking:
l Is the Minute
Timer in use?
l Is the oven
door closed
completely?
l Is the oven
in standing time
between QUICK DEFROST and
COOK CYCLE 1 or AUTO SETTIME?
(See page 25.)

l Is the command

l Has the tone been
cancelled?
If the fan seems to be running
slower than usual:
l Has the oven

the oven warms up to normal room
