MICROWAVE OVEN SAFETY
Your safety and the safety of others are very important.
We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and obey all
safety messages.
This is the safety alert symbol.
This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.
All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word “DANGER” or
“WARNING.” These words mean:
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't
immediately follow instructions.
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't
follow instructions.
All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you
what can happen if the instructions are not followed.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
When using electrical appliances basic safety precautions should be followed, including the following:
WARNING: To reduce the risk of burns, electric
shock, fire, injury to persons, or exposure to excessive
microwave energy:
■ Read all instructions before using the microwave
oven.
■ Read and follow the specific “PRECAUTIONS TO
AVOID POSSIBLE EXPOSURE TO EXCESSIVE
MICROWAVE ENERGY” found in this section.
■ The microwave oven must be grounded. Connect
only to properly grounded outlet. See “GROUNDING
INSTRUCTIONS” found in this section.
■
■
■
■
Install or locate the microwave oven only in accordance with the provided Installation Instructions.
Some products such as whole eggs in the shell and
sealed containers – for example, closed glass jars –
may explode and should not be heated in the
microwave oven.
Use the microwave oven only for its intended use as
described in this manual. Do not use corrosive
chemicals or vapors in the microwave oven. This
type of oven is specifically designed to heat, cook,
or dry food. It is not designed for industrial or laboratory use.
Oversized foods or oversized metal utensils should
not be inserted in the microwave oven as they may
create a fire or risk of electric shock.
■
Do not clean with metal scouring pads. Pieces can
burn off the pad and touch electrical parts involving
a risk of electric shock.
■
Do not store any materials, other than manufacturer's
recommended accessories, in this oven when not in
use.
Do not operate the microwave oven if it has a damaged cord or plug, if it is not working properly, or if it
has been damaged or dropped.
■ Do not deep fry in oven. Microwavable utensils are
not suitable and it is difficult to maintain appropriate
deep frying temperatures.
■
■
Do not use paper products when appliance is
operated in the "PAN BROWN" mode.
■
Do not cover racks or any other part of the oven with
metal foil. This will cause overheating of the oven.
■
As with any appliance, close supervision is necessary
when used by children.
The microwave oven should be serviced only by
qualified service personnel. Contact nearest authorized service company for examination, repair, or
adjustment.
■ Do not cover or block any openings on the
microwave oven.
■

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
■
Do not store the microwave oven outdoors. Do not
use this product near water - for example, near a
kitchen sink, in a wet basement, or near a swimming pool, and the like.
■
See door surface cleaning instructions in the “Oven
Care” section.
■
To reduce the risk of fire in the oven cavity:
– Do not overcook food. Carefully attend the microwave oven if paper, plastic, or other combustible
materials are placed inside the oven to facilitate
cooking.
– Remove wire twist-ties from paper or plastic bags
before placing bags in oven.
– 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.
– Do not use the cavity for storage purposes. Do not
leave paper products, cooking utensils, or food in
the cavity when not in use.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID POSSIBLE EXPOSURE TO
EXCESSIVE MICROWAVE ENERGY...
(a) 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.
(b) Do not place any object between the oven front
face and the door or allow soil or cleaner residue
to accumulate on sealing surfaces.
4
(c) 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.
(d) The oven should not be adjusted or repaired by
anyone except properly qualified service personnel.
Electrical Requirements
The microwave oven is connected to a 110-volt side of the 240volt circuit required for the lower oven. If the incoming voltage to
the microwave oven is less than 110 volts cooking times may be
longer. Have a qualified electrician check your electrical system.
PARTS AND FEATURES
This manual covers different models. The oven you have
purchased may have some or all of the parts and features listed.
The location and appearance of the features shown here may not
match your model.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
■
For all cord connected appliances:
The microwave oven 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 electric current. The microwave oven is equipped
with a cord having a grounding wire with a grounding
plug. The plug must be plugged into an outlet that is
properly installed and grounded.
WARNING: Improper use of the grounding plug can
result in a risk of electric shock. Consult a qualified
electrician or serviceman if the grounding instructions
are not completely understood, or if doubt exists as to
whether the microwave oven is properly grounded.

Do not use an extension cord. If the power supply cord
is too short, have a qualified electrician or serviceman
install an outlet near the microwave oven.
6
For a permanently connected appliance:
This appliance must be connected to a grounded,
metallic, permanent wiring system, or an equipment
grounding conductor should be run with the circuit
conductors and connected to the equipment
grounding terminal or lead on the appliance.

The crisper pan is ideal for rapidly browning and crisping the
bottom of the food, such as cookies and pizza.
The material coating the bottom absorbs microwaves and
transfers the heat to the pan and food. The crisper pan reaches
436°F (210°C) in approximately 3 minutes, at which time it stops
absorbing microwaves and holds this optimal frying temperature.
■ The crisper pan will become hot. Always use the handle and
oven mitts or pot holders when handling.
Broiling Grid (long legs)
The broiling grid places food close to the broil element, making it
ideal for fast browning of small amounts of food. Use for Broiling
only.
Convection Grid (short legs)
■
Never allow the crisper pan or handle to touch the inside
cavity walls, ceiling or floor.
■
Always use the turntable.
■

Cooking Guidelines
MICROWAVE OVEN USE
Covering
A magnetron in the oven produces microwaves which reflect off
the metal floor, walls and ceiling and pass through the turntable
and appropriate cookware to the food. Microwaves are attracted
to and absorbed by fat, sugar and water molecules in the food,
causing them to move, producing friction and heat which cooks
the food.
■ Never lean on or allow children to swing on the oven door.
■
Do not operate microwave oven when it is empty.
■
Heated liquids can splash out during and after heating. Use
of a wooden stir stick placed in the cup or bowl during
heating may help to avoid this.
■
The turntable must be in place and correct side up when
oven is in use. Do not use if turntable is chipped or broken.
See “Assistance or Service” section to reorder.
■
Baby bottles and baby food jars should not be heated in the
oven.
■
Clothes, flowers, fruit, herbs, wood, gourds, paper, including
brown paper bags and newspaper should not be dried in the
oven.
■
Do not use the microwave oven for canning, sterilizing or
deep frying. The oven cannot maintain appropriate
temperatures.
Covering food helps retain moisture, shorten cook time and
reduce spattering. Use the lid supplied with cookware. If lid is not
available, wax paper, paper towels or plastic wrap approved for
microwaves may be used. Plastic wrap should be turned back at
one corner to provide an opening to vent steam.
Stirring and Turning
Stirring and turning redistributes heat evenly to avoid
overcooking the outer edges of food. Stir from outside to center.
If possible, turn food over from bottom to top.
Arranging
If heating irregularly shaped or different sized foods, the thinner
parts and smaller sizes should be arranged toward the center. If
cooking several items of the same size and shape, place them in
a ring pattern, leaving the center of the ring empty.
Piercing
Before heating, use a fork or small knife to pierce or prick foods
that have a skin or membrane, such as potatoes, egg yolks,
chicken livers, hot dogs, and sausage. Prick in several places to
allow steam to vent.
Shielding
■
Paraffin wax will not melt in the oven because it does not
absorb microwaves.
Use small, flat pieces of aluminum foil to shield the thin pieces of
irregularly shaped foods, bones and foods such as chicken
wings, leg tips and fish tail. See “Aluminum Foil and Metal” first.
■
Use oven mitts or pot holders when removing containers from
oven.
Standing Time
■
Do not overcook potatoes. At the end of the recommended
cook time, potatoes should be slightly firm. Let potatoes
stand for five minutes. They will finish cooking while standing.
■
Do not cook or reheat whole eggs or eggs inside the shell.
Steam buildup in whole eggs may cause them to burst. Cover
poached eggs and allow a standing time.
Food will continue to cook by the natural conduction of heat even
after the microwave cycle ends. The length of standing time
depends on the volume and density of the food.
Food Characteristics
When microwave cooking, the amount, size and shape, starting
temperature, composition and density of the food affect cooking
results.
Amount of Food
The more food heated at once the longer the cook time. Check
for doneness and add small increments of time if necessary.
Size and Shape
Smaller pieces of food will cook more quickly than larger pieces
and uniformly shaped foods cook more evenly than irregularly
shaped food.
Starting Temperature
Room temperature foods will heat faster than refrigerated foods
and refrigerated foods will heat faster than frozen foods.
Composition and Density
Foods high in fat and sugar will reach a higher temperature and
heat faster than other foods. Heavy, dense foods, such as meat
and potatoes, require a longer cook time than the same size of a
light, porous food, such as cake.
13
Cookware and Dinnerware
Cookware and dinnerware must fit on the turntable. Always use
oven mitts or pot holders when handling because any dish may
become hot from heat transferred from the food. Do not use
cookware and dinnerware with gold or silver trim. Use the
following chart as a guide, then test before using.

Aluminum Foil and Metal
Always use oven mitts or pot holders when removing dishes from
the microwave oven.
Aluminum foil and some metal can be used in the oven. If not
used properly, arcing (a blue flash of light) can occur and cause
damage to the oven.
OK for Use
Racks and bakeware supplied with the oven, aluminum foil for
shielding, and approved meat thermometers may be used with
the following guidelines:
■ Never allow aluminum foil or metal to touch the inside cavity
walls, ceiling or floor.

(on some models)
4. Convection grid
Convection Cooking uses the convection element (on some
models) and the fan. The Broil element will also cycle on and off.
Hot air is circulated throughout the oven cavity by the fan. The
constantly moving air surrounds the food to heat the outer
portion quickly.
The Convect function may be used to cook small amounts of
food on a single rack.
■ Always use the Convection Grid.
■
Do not cover Turntable or Convection Grid with aluminum foil.
■
Do not use light plastic containers, plastic wrap or paper
products. All heat proof cookware or metal utensils can be
used in convection cooking, but metal utensils cannot be
used in microwave cooking. Round pizza pans are excellent
for convection cooking.
■
Use convection cooking for items such as souffles, breads,
cookies, angel food cakes, pizza, and most meats and fish.
■
No special techniques are needed to adapt standard oven
recipes to convection cooking, although some temperatures
might need to be reduced, and some cooking times might
need to be shortened.
■
