IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THIS APPLIANCE.
When using an electric appliance, basic precautions should always be followed including the following:
!
WARNING (MICROWAVE OVEN)
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK, INJURY TO PERSONS OR EXPOSURE TO EXCESSIVE
MICROWAVE ENERGY, OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING:
•
Do not attempt to operate this microwave 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.
•
Do not place any object between the microwave oven front face and the door or allow soil or cleaner residue
to accumulate on sealing surfaces.
•
Do not operate the microwave oven if it is damaged. It is particularly important that the microwave oven door
close properly and that there is no damage to the:
• Door (bent or dented)
• Hinges and latches (broken or loosened)
• Door seals and sealing surfaces
•
This appliance must be grounded. Connect only to properly grounded outlets.
•
Install or locate this appliance only in accordance with the installation instructions provided.
•
Use this appliance only for its intended use as described in the 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.
•
Keep the power cord away from heated surfaces (including the back of the oven).
•
Remove lids from baby food before heating. After heating baby food, stir well to distribute the heat evenly.
Always test temperature by tasting before feeding the baby. The glass jar or surface of the food may appear to
be cooler than the interior, which can be so hot as to burn the infant's mouth.
•
Liquids, such as water, milk, 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 microwave oven is not always
present. This COULD RESULT IN VERY HOT LIQUIDS SUDDENLY BOILING OVER WHEN THE CONTAINER
IS DISTURBED BY A SPOON OR OTHER UTENSILS, INSERTED INTO THE LIQUID.
a) Do not overheat liquids.
b) Stir the liquid both before and halfway through heating it.
c) Do not use straight-sided containers with narrow necks.
d) After heating, allow the container to stand in the microwave oven for a short time before removing the
container.
e) Use extreme care when inserting a spoon or other utensils into the container.
• Hot foods and steam can cause burns. Carefully remove container coverings, directing steam away from your
hands and face.
•
Some products such as whole eggs and sealed containers (e.g.: closed jar) may explode if heated in this oven.
Remove seals and lids before use.
• Do not operate this appliance if it has a damaged power cord or plug, if it is not working properly, or if it has been
damaged or dropped. When the power plug or power cord is damaged, contact your nearest service center.
•
Do not cover or block any of the openings on this appliance.
•
Do not immerse the power cord or plug in water and do not operate the appliance with wet hands.
•

a)
b)
c)
d)
Do not overcook food. Watch appliance carefully 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 ignite, keep the oven door closed, turn the oven off, disconnect the power cord, or
shut off the power at the fuse or circuit breaker panel. If the door is opened, the fire may spread.
Do not use the oven compartment for storage purposes. Do not leave paper products, cooking utensils, or
food in the oven when not in use.
CAUTION
•
Keep the inside of the oven clean. Food particles or spattered oils stuck to the oven walls or floor can cause
paint damage and reduce the efficiency of the oven.
When cleaning surfaces of door and oven that comes together on closing the door, use only mild, nonabrasive
soaps or detergents applied with a sponge or soft cloth. Unplug the power cord before cleaning.
Do not store this appliance outdoors. Do not use near water - for example, near a kitchen sink, in a wet
basement, or near a swimming pool or similar locations.
Do not cook without the turntable in place on the oven floor. Food will not cook properly without the tray in place.
Do not store anything directly on top of the appliance when it is in operation.
Do not tamper with or make any adjustments or repairs to the door.
Never try to repair the oven on your own. This appliance should be serviced only by qualified service personnel.

codes and standards, including fire-rated construction codes and standards.
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF A RANGE TOP GREASE FIRE:
a)
b)
c)
d)
e)
Never leave surface units unattended at high settings. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may
ignite. Heat oils slowly on low or medium settings.
Always turn vent fan ON when cooking at high heat or when flambeing food (i.e.: Crêpes Suzette, Cherries
Jubilee, Peppercorn Beef Flambé).
Clean ventilating fan frequently - Grease should not be allowed to accumulate on fan or filter.
Use proper pan size. Always use cookware appropriate for the size of the surface element.
The fan will operate automatically under certain conditions. Take care to prevent the starting and spreading of
accidental cooking fires while the vent fan is in use.
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY TO PERSONS IN THE EVENT OF A RANGE TOP GREASE FIRE*:
1.
SMOTHER FLAMES with a close-fitting lid, cookie sheet or metal tray, then turn off the burner. BE CAREFUL
TO PREVENT BURNS. IF THE FLAMES DO NOT GO OUT IMMEDIATELY, EVACUATE AND CALL THE FIRE
DEPARTMENT.
2. NEVER PICK UP A FLAMING PAN — You may be burned.
3. DO NOT USE WATER, including wet dishcloths or towels — This could cause a violent steam explosion.
4. Use an extinguisher ONLY if:
A. You own a Class ABC extinguisher and you know how to operate it.
B. The fire is small and contained in the area where it started.
C. The fire department has been called.
D. You can fight the fire with your back to an exit.

2.8 USING THE AUTO DEFROST BUTTON
The defrost choices are preset in the oven. The defrost cycle provides you with the best defrosting method for
frozen foods, because the oven automatically sets the defrosting time according to the entered weight. For
added convenience, the auto defrost function beeps to remind you to check or turn over the food during the
defrost cycle.
1. Press the Auto Defrost button.
2. Use the number buttons to enter the weight (0.1 to 6.0 lb.).
3. Press the START button.
NOTE: After pressing the START button, the display counts down the defrosting time. The oven will beep
twice during the defrost cycle. At this time, open the door and turn the food as needed. Remove any
thawed portions, then return the frozen portions to the oven and press the START button to resume
the defrost cycle. The defrost cycle continues while the oven is beeping and only stops when the door
is opened.
DEFROSTING TIPS
When using auto defrost, the entered weight is the net weight in pounds and tenths of pounds (the weight of
the food minus the container).
Use the auto defrost cycle for raw food only. The auto defrost cycle gives best results when the food to
be thawed is a maximum of 0°F (-18°C) (taken directly from a true freezer). If food has been stored in a
refrigerator-freezer that does not maintain a temperature of 5°F (-15°C) or below, always program a lower
food weight (for a shorter defrosting time) to prevent actually cooking the food.
If the food is stored outside the freezer for up to 20 minutes, enter a lower food weight.
The shape of the package alters the defrosting time. Shallow rectangular packets defrost more quickly than
a thick block.
Separate the pieces as they begin to defrost. Separated pieces defrost more easily.
Shield areas of food with small pieces of foil if they start to become warm.
You can use small pieces of aluminum foil to shield foods such as chicken wings, leg tips, and fish tails, but
the foil must not touch the sides of the oven as foil causes arcing, which can damage the oven lining.

3. COOKWARE GUIDE
To cook food in the microwave oven, the microwaves must be able to penetrate the food without being reflected
or absorbed by the dish.
It is important to choose the correct cookware, therefore look for cookware that is marked microwave-safe.
The table below lists various types of cookware and indicates if and how they should be used in a microwave oven.
MICROWAVE-SAFE UTENSILS
If you are not sure whether an item is microwave-safe or not, you can perform the following simple test:
1. Fill 1 cup of a glass measuring cup with water and put it inside your oven next to the item to test.
2. Press the One Minute+ button once to heat them both for one minute at high power.
After the minute, the water should be warm and the item you are testing should be cool. If the dish is warm,
then it is absorbing microwave energy and is not microwave-safe.

4. COOKING GUIDE
4.1 MICROWAVES
Microwave energy actually penetrates food, attracted and absorbed by the water, fat and sugar content. The
microwaves cause the molecules in the food to move rapidly and the rapid movement of these molecules
creates friction and the resulting heat cooks the food.
COOKING MEAT
Place the meat fat-side down on a microwave-safe roasting rack in a microwave-safe dish. Use narrow strips
of aluminum foil to shield any bone tips or thin pieces of meat. Check the temperature in several places before
letting the meat stand the recommended time.
The following temperatures are removal temperatures. The temperature of the food will rise during standing
time.

COOKING EGGS
! WARNING
Never cook eggs in their shells and never warm up hard-boiled eggs in their shells as
they can explode. Always pierce whole eggs to keep them from bursting.
COOKING VEGETABLES
Vegetables should be washed prior to cooking. Usually no extra water is needed. If dense vegetables such as
potatoes, carrots and green beans are being cooked, add about 1/4 cup water.
Small vegetables (sliced carrots, peas, lima beans, etc.) will cook faster than larger ones.
Whole vegetables, such as potatoes, acorn squash or corn on the cob should be arranged in a circle on the
turntable before cooking. They will cook more evenly if turned over halfway through the cook time.
Always place vegetables such as asparagus and broccoli with the stem pointing towards the edge of the dish
and the tips toward the center.
When cooking cut vegetables, always cover the dish with a lid or vented microwavable plastic wrap.
Whole, unpeeled vegetables such as potatoes, squash, eggplant, etc., should have their skins pierced in
several spots before cooking to prevent them from bursting. For a more even cooking result, stir or rearrange
whole vegetables halfway through the cook time.
Generally, the denser the food, the longer the standing time. (Standing time refers to the time necessary
for dense, large foods and vegetables to finish cooking after they come out of the oven.) A baked potato
can stand on the counter for five minutes before cooking is completed, while a dish of peas can be served
immediately.

5. MICROWAVE OVEN CARE
Keeping your microwave oven clean improves its performance, wards off unnecessary repairs and lengthens its life.
5.1 CLEANING THE EXTERIOR
It’s best to clean spills on the outside of your microwave oven as they occur. Use a soft cloth and warm, soapy
water. Rinse and dry.
! WARNING
Do not get water into the vents. Never use abrasive products or chemical solvents.
5.2 CLEANING THE INTERIOR
! WARNING
Ensure that the microwave oven has cooled down before cleaning it to avoid injury.
CAUTION
Remove the turntable from the oven for cleaning it and the oven. To prevent the tray
from breaking, handle it with care and do not put it in water immediately after cooking.
Wash the tray carefully in warm sudsy water or in the dishwasher.
Clean the interior surfaces (oven cavity) of your microwave oven periodically to remove any splashes or
stains. To remove hardened food articles and remove smells, place 2 cups of water (add lemon juice for extra
freshness) in a four-cup measuring glass at High power for 5 minutes or until boiling. Let it stand in the oven
for one or two minutes.
5.3 CLEANING THE DOOR AND DOOR SEALS
Always ensure that the door seals are clean and that the door closes properly. Take particular care when
cleaning the door seals to ensure that no particles accumulate and prevent the door from closing correctly.
Wash the glass door with very mild soap and water. Be sure to use a soft cloth to avoid scratching.
NOTE: If steam accumulates inside or outside the oven door, wipe with a soft cloth. Steam can accumulate
when operating the oven at high humidity and in no way indicates microwave leakage.
5.4 CLEANING THE TURNTABLE AND ROLLER RING
Clean the roller ring periodically and wash the turntable as required. The turntable can safely be washed in
your dishwasher.
5.5 CLEANING THE GREASE FILTER
The grease filter should be removed and cleaned at least once a month.
! WARNING
To avoid risk of personal injury or property damage, do not operate the microwave oven
hood without filter in place.

qualified service technician to perform repairs. If the oven is faulty and needs servicing,
or you are in doubt about its condition, unplug the oven from the power outlet and
contact your nearest service center.
Do not use the oven if the microwave oven is damaged, in particular when the door or door seals are
damaged. This could be a broken hinge, a worn out seal or distorted/bent casing.
Do not remove the oven from its casing.
This microwave oven is for home use only and is not intended for commercial use.
