INFO DISPLAY COOKING SYSTEM
Thank you for buying a Sharp Microwave Oven.
Your new oven has an "Information Display System" which offers you step-by-step instructions to easily
guide you through each feature.
Your oven also has a HELP key for instructions on using Auto Start, Information Guide On / Off,
Demonstration Mode, Child Lock, Info on pads and Help.
After gaining experience and confidence using your oven, the information display can be turned off.
We strongly recommend however that you read this operation manual thoroughly before operating your
oven, paying particular attention to the safety warnings and special notes.
The manual is divided into two sections:
1. OPERATION (P3~P26)
This section describes your oven and teaches you how to use all the features.
2. COOKING GUIDE
This section is at the back of the manual, it contains the more commonly used information such as how to
prepare food, which cooking utensil to use, standing time.
It also contains recipes for automatic cooking.
Please take some time to read your operation manual carefully, the automatic cooking menus programmed into
your new oven have been carefully developed to give optimum results when the step-by-step instructions are
followed.
When selecting another home appliance, please again consider our full range of Sharp products.
2
WARNING
Read all instructions before using the appliance.
To reduce the risk of fire in the oven cavity:
a. Do not overcook food.
b. Remove wire twist-ties from paper or plastic bags before placing bag in the oven.
c. Do not heat oil or fat for deep frying. The temperature of the oil cannot be controlled.
d. Look at the oven from time to time when food is heated in disposable containers made of plastic,
paper or other combustible materials for signs of smoke or burning.
e. If materials inside the oven should ignite, or smoke is observed, keep oven door closed, turn oven
off, and disconnect the power cord, or shut off power at the fuse or circuit breaker panel.
To reduce the risk of explosion and sudden boiling:
a, Do not place sealed containers in the oven. Babies bottles fitted with a screw cap or teat are
considered to be sealed containers.
b, When boiling liquids in the oven, use a wide-mouthed container and stand about 20 seconds at the
end of cooking to avoid delayed eruptive boiling of liquids.
This oven is for home food preparation only and should only be used for heating, cooking and defrosting food
and beverage.
It is not suitable for commercial, laboratory use, or heating therapeutic devices eg. Wheat bags.
Never operate the oven whilst any object is caught or jammed between the door and the oven.
Do not try to adjust or repair the oven yourself because of hazard. The oven must be adjusted or repaired
by a qualified service technician trained by SHARP.
Do not operate the oven if it is not working correctly or damaged until it has been repaired by a qualified service
technician trained by SHARP. It is particularly important that the oven door closes properly and that there
is no damage to:
(1) Door (warped), (2) Hinges and Latches (broken or loosened), (3) Door Seals, Sealing Surfaces and oven
cavity (buckled or deformed), (4) Burn marks on the door seal faces.
Do not bump, or catch utensils, loose clothes and your accessories on the door safety latches when removing
food from the oven.
Never poke an object, particularly a metal object, through a grille or between the door and the oven while the
oven operating.
Never tamper with or deactivate the door safety latches.
Always use oven gloves to prevent burns when handling utensils that are in contact with hot food. Enough
heat from the food can transfer through utensils to cause skin burns.
Should the power supply cord become damaged, it must be replaced with a special cord supplied by a
SERVICE CENTRE APPROVED BY SHARP. And it must be replaced by a qualified service technician
trained by SHARP.
If the oven lamp fails please consult your dealer or a qualified service technician trained by SHARP.
Avoid steam burns by directing steam away from the face and hands.
Slowly lift the furthest edge of a dish's cover and microwave plastic wrap and carefully open popcorn and oven
cooking bags away from the face.
Make sure that the power supply cord is undamaged, and that it does not run under the oven or over any hot
surfaces or sharp edges.
When using the CONVECTION, GRILL, MIX COOKING, SENSOR INSTANT ACTION or MULTI COOK
mode, the turntable, racks, oven door, outer cabinet and oven cavity will become hot. Use oven mittens to
prevent burns.
Before cleaning, make sure the oven door, outer cabinet, oven cavity, air vent openings, turntable, roller stay
and racks are not hot.
Do not place anything on the outer cabinet.
This appliance must be earthed.
Do not store food or any other items inside the oven.
Make sure the utensil does not touch the interior walls during cooking.
Only allow children to use the oven without supervision when adequate instructions have been given so that
the child is able to use the oven in a safe way and understands the hazards of improper use.
This appliance is not intended for use by young children or infirm persons without supervision.
Young children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.

SPECIAL NOTES
DO
DON’T
Eggs, fruits,
nuts, seeds
vegetables,
sausages and
oysters
* Puncture egg yolks and whites and
oysters before cooking to prevent
"explosion".
* Pierce skins of potatoes, apples,
squash, hot dogs, sausages and
oysters so that steam escapes.
* Cook eggs in shells. This prevents
"explosion", which may damage the
oven or injure yourself.
* Reheat whole eggs.
* Overcook oysters.
* Dry nuts or seeds in shells.
Popcorn
* Use specially bagged popcorn for the
microwave oven.
* Listen while popping corn for the
popping to slow to 1-2 seconds.
* Pop popcorn in regular brown bags or
glass bowls.
* Exceed maximum time on popcorn
package.
Baby food
* Transfer baby food to small dish and
heat carefully, stirring often. Check for
suitable temperature to prevent burns.
* Remove the screw cap and teat
before warming baby bottles. After
warming shake thoroughly. Check for
suitable temperature.
* Heat disposable bottles.
* Overheat baby bottles.
Only heat until warm.
* Heat bottles with nipples on.
* Food with filling should be cut after
heating, to release steam and avoid
burns.
* Stir liquids briskly before and after
cooking for even heating.
* Use a deep bowl when cooking liquids
or cereals to prevent boiling over.
* For boiling or cooking liquids see
WARNING on page 2.
* Heat or cook in closed glass jars or air
tight containers.
Canned foods
* Remove food from can.
* Heat or cook food while in cans.
Sausage rolls,
Pies, Christmas
pudding
* These foods have high sugar and/or
fat contents.
* Cook for the recommended time.
* Overcook as they may catch fire.
Meats
* Use a microwave proof roasting rack
to collect drained juices.
* Place meat directly on the turntable for
cooking.
Utensils
* Check the utensils are suitable for
MICROWAVE cooking before you use
them.
* Use metal utensils for MICROWAVE
cooking. Metal reflects microwave

discharge known as arcing.
Aluminium foil
* Use to shield food to prevent over
cooking.
* Watch for sparking. Reduce foil or
keep clear of cavity walls.
* Use too much.
* Shield food close to cavity walls.
Sparking can damage the cavity.
Browning dish
* Place a suitable insulator such as
microwave and heat proof dinner plate
between the turntable and the
browning dish.
* Exceed the preheating time recommended by the manufacturer. Excessive preheating can cause the glass
turntable to shatter and/or damage
internal parts of the oven.
General
4
* Heat baby food in original jars.
* Deep fat fry.
* Heat or dry wood, herbs, wet papers,
clothes or flowers.
* Operate the oven without a load (i.e. an
absorbing material such as food or water) in the oven cavity except the directed
case in the operation manual.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Remove all packing materials from the oven cavity. Check the unit for any damage, such as a misaligned door,
damaged gaskets around the door or dents inside the oven cavity or on the door. If there is any damage,
please do not operate the oven until it has been checked by a SERVICE CENTRE APPROVED BY SHARP
and repaired, if necessary.
2. Accessories provided
1) Turntable tray
4) High rack
5) Cook book
2) Roller stay
6) Operation manual
3) Low rack
3. Since the door may become hot during cooking, you should place or mount the oven so that the bottom of
the oven is 80 cm or more above floor. You should also keep children away from the door to prevent them
burning themselves.
4. Locate the roller stay in the centre of the oven, then fit the turntable on the roller stay.
Make sure the turntable and roller stay are centrally located and locked together.
NEVER operate the oven without the roller stay and turntable.
5. The oven should not be installed in any area where excessive heat and steam are generated, for example,
next to a conventional oven unit.
When the oven is mounted on a kitchen benchtop, allow at least 40 cm on the top, 5 cm on both sides and
at the rear of the oven for free air space. The ventilation openings should not be blocked.
6. Please consult your Sharp retailer for availability of built in kit. Before preparing kitchen cabinets for wall mounting,
please refer to the Sharp built in kit installation instructions for clearances and ventilation requirements.
7. Neither the manufacturer nor the distributors can accept any liability for damage to the machine or personal
injury for failure to observe the correct electrical connecting procedure.
The A.C. voltage must be single phase. • 230-240V, 50Hz.
8. Operate the oven from a general purpose domestic outlet. If a generator is used, do not operate the oven with
non-sinusoidal outputs.
9. Before using CONVECTION HEATER ELEMENTS for the first time, operate the oven without food for 20
minutes at 250°C. This will allow the oil that is used for rust protection to be burned off.

1. ARRANGEMENT
1. Can be used the same a conventional oven.
Arrange foods carefully. Place thickest areas toward outside of dish.
Eg. Arrange vegetables in a shallow dish in the following way:
Hard Vegetables around the outside, Soft Vegetables in the
centre, Medium Vegetables in-between.
2. When cooking your own recipes; cook for a slightly shorter cooking time, at the
temperature the recipe suggests. Then add additional time if necessary.
2. COVERING
Cover foods in the microwave if you would normally cover the food in your ordinary oven, or
to retain moisture. Cover foods such as Vegetables, Casseroles, or when Reheating.
Use to cover foods:
3. For best results, preheat to required temperature with the turnable in the oven.
Add food after preheating.
4. Foods may be cooked either directly on turntable, or using the high or low racks.
5. Do not cover turntable, high rack, or low rack with aluminium foil.

6. STANDING TIME
Standing time is important. After cooking or defrosting ensure adequate standing time. This
allows the food to continue cooking or heating. Refer to cooking guides for each menu or
according to manufacturers instructions.
7. CONDENSATION
Condensation is a normal part of microwave cooking. The humidity and moisture in food will
influence the amount of condensation in the oven. Generally, covered foods will not cause
as much condensation as uncovered foods. Ensure that the ventilation openings are not
blocked.

8. Use convection cooking for baking delicate foods or those which have short cooking
times. ie. biscuits, scones, choux pastry or pavlova.
HELPFUL HINTS
MIX COOKING
GRILLING
1. There are two automatic, pre-programmed mix settings.
1. Preheat is automatic for this menu.
Add food after pre-heating.
a) Low Mix - Convection 180°C with
10% microwave power.
Use for baking cakes,
slices, bread, quiches,
pastries.
2. Place food on the high rack in the oven after preheating. (Round pizza trays
may be used if necessary).
b) High Mix - Convection 200°C with
30% microwave power.
Use for roasting meats,
lasagne and meat loaf.
HIGH RACK & TURNTABLE
2. The convection temperature can be changed to accommodate all your favourite
recipes.
When grilling food that can excessive fat splatter and smoke (eg. steak, chops)
the following principles should be followed:
* Remove turntable from the oven before preheating.
* Fit the high rack on the turntable, place the food on the rack and pour 1/2
cup of tap water on the turntable. (Otherwise the dripping fat drops onto the
hot turntable causing the smoke).
* The turntable should be fitted in the oven after preheating.
3. Metal cookware can be used.
During mix cooking some metal utensils
may cause arcing when they come in
contact with oven walls or accessory
racks. To prevent arcing when using a
metal tin, place a heat resistant dish
(Pyrex ® pie plate, dinner plate) between
the tin and the rack.
3. The oven is preset at 250°C, this can be reduced to accommodate a
variety of foods.
