PRECAUTIONS
TO AVOID
POSSIBLE EXPOSURE TO
EXCESSIVE MICROWAVE ENERGY
Before you begin
II
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.
Read these instructions
completely
and carefully.
If followed, they will simplify the installation
job.
IMPORTANT:
Do not place any object between the oven front face
and the door or allow soil or cleaner residue to
accumulate on sealing surfaces.
Observe all governing codes and ordinances.
Failure to follow these instructions
could lead
to fire or electrical shock hazard.
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.
The oven should not be adjusted or repaired by anyone
except properly qualified personnel.
The oven should be checked for microwave leakage
by qualified service personnel after a repair is made.
A. Space requirements
Do not operate the oven if the door glass is broken.

B. Check microwave for
damage
Remove all packing material from the oven cavity.
When unpacking the unit, check for damage such as
misaligned door, damaged gaskets around the door,
or dents inside the oven or on the exterior. If there is
any damage, please do not operate the unit until it has
been checked by an authorized Whirlpool trained service technician.
C. Electrical requirements
IMPORTANT:
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
FOR THE
LOCAL ELECTRICAL INSPECTOR’S USE
A. This appliance must be connected to the proper
electrical voltage and frequency as specified on
nameplate. Models rated at 15 KW on 240 volts (11.25
KW on 208V) or more require a separate 50 amp circuit. Models rated less than 15KW on 240 volts (11.25
KW on 208V) require a separate 40 ampere circuit.
Fuse both sides of the line. DO NOT fuse the neutral.
A time delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended.
Wire sizes must conform to the requirements of the National Electrical Code and/or local codes and ordinances for the kilowatt rating of the range. The
nameplate is located on the front frame behind the
microwave oven door.
NOTE: Wire sizes and connections must conform with
the fuse size and rating of the appliance in accordance
with National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances. Do not use an extension cord.
B. The appliance should be connected to the fused
disconnect (or circuit breaker) box through flexible armored or non-metallic sheathed cable. The flexible armored cable extending from the appliance should be
connected directly to the junction box. The junction box
should be locat.ed as shown in Figure 1 on page 2 so
that as much slack as possible remains in the cable
between the box and the appliance so that it can be
moved if servicing is necessary.
C. A suitable strain relief must be provided to attach
the flexible armored cable to the junction box.

in each of the hinges. Close the oven door until the
pins touch the oven front. See View 13.
3. The oven door can now be lifted off.
4. Reinstall oven door the same as on non-self cleaning models. (See page 5)
5. Reinstall
NOTE:
Before installing the oven in the cut-out, it may be
helpful to remove the lower oven door. See details
below.
Insert appliance into cut-out. Screws are provided for
fastening the front frame of the appliance to the cabinet.
The mounting holes in the front frame of appliance may
be used as a template to locate the appliance mounting screw holes.
CAUTION:
For your personal safety, and to minimize potential personal injury, this oven must be securely
fastened to the cabinet, using the four screws
that are provided.
TO REMOVE

the door mounting
screws.
Removing the oven door may make it easier to clean
the oven. To remove the door, first open it to the first
stop (about 4 inches or 10 cm). Take hold of both
sides of the door near the top; then lift it at the same
angle it is in.
TO REMOVE OVEN DOOR
(NON-SELF-CLEANING
MODELS)
With the door off, you will notice how the ends of
hinges slide into slots at the bottom corners of the
door. To put the door back on, fit both corners of the
door over the ends of the hinges. Push the door
down evenly, so neither corner gets ahead of the
other. When it reaches the bottom, you can close
the door. A safety latch will hold the door open until
it is on correctly.

is required
on this appliance.
This appliance is equipped with copper lead wires.
If connection is made to aluminum house wiring, use
only special connectors which are approved for joining copper and aluminum wires in accordance with the
National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances. This appliance is manufactured with a white
neutral power supply wire and a frame connected green
ground wire twisted together.
If local codes permit connection
of the frame
grounding conductor to the neutral (white) wire, connect the green and white wire from the supply cable
of the appliance together and the neutral (white) wire
in the junction box. Connect the remaining wires from
the supply cable to the wires in the junction box. See
Figure 3.
If local codes DO NOT permit frame grounding to the
neutral, separate the white and green wires that extend
out of the end of the supply cable of the appliance. See
Figure 5. Connect the white wire from the supply cable
to the neutral wire in the junction box. Connect the
black and red wires from the supply cable, to the corresponding wires in the junction box. The green wire
must now be used to ground the appliance in accord
ante with local electrical codes. Connect the green
colored copper ground wire to a grounded cold water
pipe* (see Figure 4) or to the grounded lead in the service panel.
Do not ground to a gas supply pipe. Do not connect
to electric power supply until appliance is permanently grounded. Connect the ground wire before turning
on the power. (See Figure 4.)
CAUTION - If connecting to a four-wire electrical
system (MOBILE HOME) the appliance frame
MUST NOT be connected to the neutral wire of
the four-wire electrical system. Separate the white
and green wires that extend out of the supply
cable of the appliance. Connect the white, red and
black wires from the supply cable to the corresponding wires in the junction box. Connect the
green wire from the supply cable to the ground
wire in the junction box. (See Figure 5.)
