Important Safety Instructions
When using electrical appliances, basic safety
precautions should be followed to reduce the risk
of burns, electric shock, fire, injury to persons or
exposure to excessive microwave energy:
• READ ALL instructions before using the appliance.
• Read and follow the specific “PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID POSSIBLE EXPOSURE TO
EXCESSIVE MICROWAVE ENERGY” on page 4.
• This appliance must be grounded. Connect only
to properly grounded outlet. See "GROUNDING
INSTRUCTIONS" found on page 5.
• Install or locate this appliance only in accordance
with the provided installation instructions.
• Some products such as whole eggs and sealed
containers - for example, closed jars - are able to
explode and SHOULD NOT be HEATED in this
oven.
• Use this appliance only for its intended use as
described in this manual. DO NOT use corrosive
chemicals or vapors in this appliance. This type of
oven is specifically designed to heat, cook or dry
food. It is not designed for industrial or laboratory
use.
• As with any appliance, close supervision is
necessary when used by children or INFIRM
PERSONS.
• Do not operate this appliance if it has a damaged
cord or plug, if it is not working properly or if it has
been damaged or dropped.
• This appliance, including power cord, must be
serviced ONLY by qualified service personnel.
Contact nearest Electrolux Authorized Servicer for
examination, repair or adjustment.
• DO NOT cover or block any vents or openings on
the oven.
• DO NOT store or use this appliance outdoors. DO
NOT use this product near water—for example, near
a kitchen sink, in a wet basement, near a swimming
pool, or similar locations.
• DO NOT immerse cord or plug in water.
• Keep cord AWAY from HEATED surfaces.
•
•
•
•
DO NOT let cord hang over edge of table or counter.
Review the door cleaning instructions on page 36.
Do not mount over a sink.
Do not store anything directly on top of the appliance surface when the appliance is in operation.
To reduce the risk of fire in the oven cavity:
• Do not overcook food. Carefully attend to
appliance when 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 bag in oven.
• If materials inside the oven 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.
Liquids, such as water, coffee or tea are able to be
overheated beyond the boiling point without appearing
to be boiling. Visible bubbling or boiling when the
container is removed from the Convection Microwave
Oven is not always present. THIS COULD RESULT
IN VERY HOT LIQUIDS SUDDENLY BOILING OVER
WHEN A SPOON OR OTHER UTENSIL IS INSERTED
INTO THE LIQUID.
To reduce the risk of injury to persons:
• Do not overheat the liquid.
• Stir the liquid both before and halfway through
heating it.
• DO NOT use straight-sided containers with narrow necks. Use a wide-mouthed container.
• After heating, allow the container to stand in
the Convection Microwave Oven at least for 20
seconds before removing the container.
• Use extreme care when inserting a spoon or other
utensil into the container.
If the oven light fails, consult a Electrolux Authorized
Servicer.

Grounding Instructions
This appliance must be grounded. This oven is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with a
grounding plug. It must be plugged into a wall receptacle that is properly installed and grounded in
accordance with the National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances. In the event of an electrical
short circuit, grounding reduces risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric current.
WARNING
Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of electric shock.
Electrical Requirements
The electrical requirements are a 120 volt 60 Hz, AC only, 15 amp. or more protected electrical supply. It
is recommended that a separate circuit serving only this appliance be provided.
The oven is equipped with a 3-prong grounding plug. It must be plugged into a wall receptacle that is
properly installed and grounded.
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce risk of becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer
cord. DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD. If the power supply cord is too short, have a qualified electrician
or serviceperson install an outlet near the appliance.
NOTES:
1. If you have any questions about the grounding or electrical instructions, consult a qualified electrician
or serviceperson.
2.Neither Electrolux nor the dealer can accept any liability for damage to the oven or personal injury
resulting from failure to observe the correct electrical connection procedures.

Information You Need To Know
About your oven
This Use and Care Guide is valuable: read it carefully
and always save it for reference.
NEVER use the Convection Microwave Oven
without the turntable and support nor turn the
turntable over so that a large dish could be placed
in the oven. The turntable will turn both clockwise
and counterclockwise.
ALWAYS have food in the Convection Microwave
Oven when it is on to absorb the microwave energy.
When using the Convection Microwave Oven at
power levels below 100%, you may hear the magnetron cycling on and off. It is normal for the exterior
of the oven to be warm to the touch when cooking
or reheating.
Condensation is a normal part of microwave cooking. Room humidity and the moisture in food will
influence the amount of moisture that condenses in
the oven. Generally, covered foods will not cause as
much condensation as uncovered ones. Ventilation
openings must not be blocked.
The Convection Microwave Oven is for food preparation only. It should not be used to dry clothes or
newspapers.
Your Convection Microwave Oven is rated 900 watts
by using the IEC Test Procedure. In using recipes
or package directions, check food a minute or two
before the minimum time and add time accordingly.
About safety
• Check foods to see that they are cooked to the
United States Department of Agriculture’s recommended temperatures.
Temp
160˚F
Food
For fresh pork, ground meat, boneless white poultry, fish, seafood, egg
dishes and frozen prepared food.
165˚F
For leftover, ready-to-reheat refrigerated, and deli and carry-out “fresh”
food.
170˚F
White meat of poultry.
180˚F
Dark meat of poultry.
To test for doneness, insert a meat thermometer in
a thick or dense area away from fat or bone. Never
leave the thermometer in the food during cooking,
unless it is approved for microwave use.
• ALWAYS use potholders 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.
E
• Avoid steam burns by directing steam away from
the face and hands. Slowly lift the farthest edge
of a dish’s covering and carefully open popcorn
and oven cooking bags away from the face.
• Stay near the oven while it’s in use and check
cooking progress frequently so that there is no
chance of overcooking food.
• NEVER use the cavity for storing cookbooks or
other items.
• Select, store and handle food carefully to preserve its high quality and minimize the spread of
foodborne bacteria.
• Keep waveguide cover clean. Food residue can
cause arcing and/or fires.
• Use care when removing items from the oven so
that the utensil, your clothes or accessories do
not touch the safety door latches.
• Keep aluminum foil used for shielding at least
1 inch away from walls, ceiling and door.

About microwave cooking
speed cooking of such foods as chicken and
hamburgers. Large items like roasts must be
turned over at least once.
• Arrange food carefully. Place thickest areas
towards outside of dish.
• Watch cooking time. Cook for the shortest
amount of time indicated and add more as
needed. Food severely overcooked can smoke
or ignite.
• Rearrange foods such as meatballs halfway
through cooking both from top to bottom and
from the center of the dish to the outside.
• Cover foods while cooking. Check recipe or
cookbook for suggestions: paper towels, wax
paper, microwave plastic wrap or a lid. Covers
prevent spattering and help foods to cook evenly.
• Add standing time. Remove food from oven
and stir, if possible. Cover for standing time
which allows the food to finish cooking without
overcooking.
• Shield with small flat pieces of aluminum foil any
thin areas of meat or poultry to prevent overcooking before dense, thick areas are cooked
thoroughly.
• Check for doneness. Look for signs indicating
that cooking temperatures have been reached.
• Stir foods from outside to center of dish once or
twice during cooking, if possible.
• Turn foods over once during microwaving to
• Doneness signs include:
- Food steams throughout, not just at edge.
- Center bottom of dish is very hot to the touch.
- Poultry thigh joints move easily.
-Meat and poultry show no pinkness.
- Fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.

Beverage
If the food that you wish to defrost is not listed on
the Defrost chart or is above or below the limits in
the “Amount” column on the Defrost chart , you need
to defrost manually.
Beverage automatically heats beverage 0.5-2.0
cups. This setting is good for restoring a cool beverage to a better drinking temperature. Stir liquid
briskly before and after heating to avoid "eruption".
The beverage setting must be entered in 0.5 cup
measurements.
You can defrost any frozen food, either raw or previously cooked, by using Power level 3. Follow the
exact 3-step procedure found under Time cooking
on page 13. Estimate defrosting time and touch 3
for 30% when you select the power level.
For either raw or previously cooked frozen food the
rule of thumb is approximately 5 minutes per pound.
For example, defrost 5 minutes for 1 pound of frozen
spaghetti sauce.
Always stop the oven periodically to remove or
separate the portions that are defrosted. If food is
not defrosted at the end of the estimated defrosting
time, program the oven in 1 minute increments on
power level 3 until totally defrosted.
When using plastic containers from the freezer,
defrost only long enough to remove from the plastic
in order to place in a microwave-safe dish.

Helpful hints for convection
fast bake and fast roast
cooking
Your Convection Microwave Oven can cook any
food perfectly because of the number of ways it
can cook: microwave only, fast bake, fast roast or
convection only. This Use & Care Guide tells you
how to program the oven.
The oven cannot be used without the turntable in
place. Never restrict the movement of the turntable.
Convection Cooking:
1.When preheating, the turntable can be left in or
removed. When using the high rack for 2 shelf
baking in a preheated oven, it is easier to remove
the turntable for preheat.
Place high rack on turntable along with foods.
When preheat is over, open oven door and quickly
place turntable, high rack and foods to be baked
inside.
2.Do not cover turntable, low rack or high rack
with aluminum foil. It interferes with air flow that
cooks food.
27
fast BAKE, FAST ROAST Cooking:
1.Meats are best when roasted directly on the low
rack. A dish can be placed below the meat if gravy
is to be made from the drippings.
2.Less tender cuts of meat can be roasted and
tenderized using oven cooking bags.
3.When baking, check for doneness after time has
elapsed. If not completely done, let stand in oven
a few minutes to complete cooking.
NOTE
1. During fast baking some metal baking utensils
may cause arcing when they come in contact
with the turntable, oven walls or accessory
racks. Arcing is a discharge of electricity that
occurs when microwaves come in contact
with metal.
2. If arcing occurs, place a heat resistant dish
(Pyrex® pie plate, glass pizza dish or dinner
plate) between the pan and the turntable or
rack. If arcing occurs with other metal baking
utensils, discontinue their use for fast bake
or fast roast cooking.
3.Round pizza pans are excellent cooking utensils
for many convection-only items. Choose pans
that do not have extended handles.
4.Using a preheated low rack can give a grilled
appearance to steaks, hot dogs etc.

Cleaning and Care
Disconnect the power cord before cleaning or leave the door open to inactivate the
oven during cleaning.
Exterior
Clean the outside with mild soap and water; rinse
and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use any type of
household or abrasive cleaner.
Door
Wipe the window on both sides with a damp cloth
to remove any spills or spatters. Metal parts will be
easier to maintain if wiped frequently with a damp
cloth. Avoid the use of spray and other harsh cleaners as they may stain, streak or dull the door surface.
Touch Control Panel
Care should be taken in cleaning the touch control
panel. If the control panel becomes soiled, open the
Convection Microwave Oven door before cleaning.
Wipe the panel with a cloth dampened slightly with
water only. Dry with a soft cloth. Do not scrub or
use any sort of chemical cleaners. Close door and
touch STOP/CLEAR.
Interior — After Microwave Cooking
Cleaning is easy because no heat is generated to the
interior surfaces; therefore, there is no baking and
setting of spills or spattering. To clean the interior
surfaces, wipe with a soft cloth and warm water.
DO NOT USE ABRASIVE OR HARSH CLEANERS
OR SCOURING PADS. For heavier soil, use baking
soda or a mild soap; rinse thoroughly with hot water.
Interior — After Convection, Mix or
Broil Cooking
Spatters may occur because of moisture and grease.
Wash immediately after use with hot, soapy water.
Rinse and polish dry. Harder to remove spatters may
occur if oven is not thoroughly cleaned or if there is
long time/high temperature cooking. If so, you may
wish to purchase an oven cleaner pad with liquid
cleaner within it — not a soap filled steel pad for use
on stainless steel or porcelain surfaces.
E
Follow manufacturer's directions carefully and
be especially cautious not to get any of the liquid
cleaner in the perforations on the wall or ceiling or
any door surfaces.
Rinse thoroughly and polish dry.
After cleaning the interior thoroughly, residual grease
may be removed from the interior ducts and heater
by simply operating the oven on 450˚F for 20 minutes
without food. Ventilate the room if necessary.
Waveguide Cover
The waveguide cover is made from mica so requires
special care. Keep the waveguide cover clean to
assure good oven performance. Carefully wipe with a
damp cloth any food spatters from the surface of the
cover immediately after they occur. Built-up splashes
may overheat and cause smoke or possibly catch
fire. Do not remove the waveguide cover.
Odor Removal
Occasionally, a cooking odor may remain in the oven.
To remove, combine 1 cup water, grated peel and
juice of 1 lemon and several whole cloves in a 2-cup
glass measuring cup. Boil for several minutes using
100% power. Allow to set in oven until cool. Wipe
interior with a soft cloth.
Turntable/Turntable Support/
Racks
The turntable, turntable support and racks can be
removed for easy cleaning. Wash them in mild,
sudsy water; for stubborn stains use a mild cleanser
and a non-abrasive scouring sponge. They are also
dishwasher-proof. Use top rack of dishwasher for
turntable support.
Foods with high acidity, such as tomatoes or lemons,
will cause the porcelain enamel turntable to discolor.
Do not cook highly acidic foods directly on the
turntable; if spills occur, wipe up immediately.
The turntable motor shaft is not sealed, so excess
water or spills should not be allowed to stand in
this area.
