Microwave cooking guidelines
o If you are heating liquid in the microwave, then you must also
place a teaspoon in the container. This will ensure that the liquid
does not boil suddenly after being removed from the microwave
cavity.
o This phenomenon is called “delayed boiling”, this means that a
liquid can be close to boiling point, even if there is no steam
coming off the liquid or the liquid is not bubbling. If the liquid
container is even gently shaken, then the liquid can without
warning boil over or even spurt. This could scald the end user.
o If the food you are cooking has a skin or peel (e.g. sausages,
tomatoes, potatoes etc), then you should pierce the skin or peel
with a fork. This will ensure that if steam is created during the
heating process, it can escape and the food will not burst.
o When heating baby food, the bottle or jar containing the food
should NEVER have a top or lid on. After cooking, to ensure that
the food has been heated uniformly, you should stir or shake the
food. IMPORTANT: You must check the temperature of the food
before feeding it to a child.
o When heating food in a microwave, it will transmit the heat to
the container that the food is in or on. You should ALWAYS use
oven gloves when removing items from the microwave.
o You should make sure that you do not cook food for too long or
at too high a power level. This could cause certain areas of the
food to dry out or even ignite.
25
o You should not use ceramic or porcelain crockery, or porous
earthenware inside of your microwave. These dishes could
absorb moisture from the food whilst it is cooking, which could
cause pressure to build up and shatter the dish.
o If you are heating certain foods and any liquid, moisture will
evaporate and condensation may occur. This does not indicate
that the appliance is faulty and it can be particularly noticeable if
the ambient temperature of the room is high.
o IMPORTANT: Any condensation should be wiped up with a soft
cloth as soon as you have finished using the microwave.
o After the cooking time has completed, you should let the food
stand for a few minutes. This is called “standing time” and will
allow the heat generated by the microwave to spread evenly
throughout the food.

o We recommend that the appliance is connected by a qualified
electrician, who is a member of the N.I.C.E.I.C. and who will
comply with the I.E.E. and local regulations.
o WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED.
o This appliance is supplied with a moulded plug, which must be
connected to an earthed socket.
o If in future you need to change the fuse in this plug, then a 13
amp ASTA approved (BS 1362) fuse must be used.
o The socket must still be accessible even when your microwave is
located on the worktop.
o The wiring in the mains lead is coloured as follows:
Brown
Blue
Green and yellow
Live
Neutral
Earth
o As the colours of the wires in the appliance’s mains lead may not
correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals
in your spur box, please proceed as follows:
The brown wire must be connected to the terminal marked “L”
(live), or coloured red.
The blue wire must be connected to the terminal marked “N”
(neutral), or coloured black.
The green and yellow wire must be connected to the terminal
marked “E” (earth), or by the earth symbol, or coloured green
and yellow.
o When the connection is completed, no stray strands or cut wire
should be present. The cord clamp must be secured over the
outer sheath.
30
o Broken or damaged power leads must only be replaced by a
suitably qualified person. A power lead of a similar type must be
used in replacement.
Troubleshooting
o The microwave will not switch on.
* Check that the appliance has been connected to the mains
supply correctly.
* Check that the fuse in the moulded plug has not blown.
* Check that the fuses in your fuse box have not blown.
* If fuses blow on a regular basis, then we would recommend that
you consult with a qualified electrician.
* Check that there has not been a power cut.
o The microwave will not start cooking.
* Check that the door is properly shut.
* Check that the door seal and surrounding area are clean.
o The turntable is not turning.
* Check that the rotating base is connected to the drive motor
correctly.
* Check that the ovenware is not larger than the rotating plate.
* Check that the food you are cooking does not extend beyond the
rotating plate.
o Check that there is nothing underneath the rotating base that is
preventing it from turning.
o The microwave does not switch off.
* Isolate the microwave from your mains supply and then contact
the Baumatic Customer Care Department.
o The interior light bulb is not working.
* Call the Baumatic Customer Care Department. The interior light
bulb can only be replaced by a trained service technician.
o My food is not cooking properly.
* Check that the power level and cooking time that you have set,
is appropriate for the food that you are cooking.
* If you are cooking a double amount of food, then you will
normally need to almost double the cooking time.
31
* If the food that you have placed in the cavity is colder than
normal, then the power level and cooking time may need to be
increased.
o I am getting condensation in my oven.
* Steam and condensation are a natural by product of cooking in a
microwave.
* Do not leave food in the oven to cool after it has been cooked
and the oven has been switched off.
* Use a covered container, where practical, when cooking to
reduce the amount of condensation that forms.
* You should wipe over any condensation that has formed, as soon
as the food has stopped cooking.
