Cookware
To cook food in the microwave oven, the microwaves must be able to

cookware is marked microwave-safe, you do not need to worry.
The following table lists various types of cookware and indicates whether
and how they should be used in a microwave oven.

CLEANING YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN
STORING AND REPAIRING YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN
The following parts of your microwave oven should be cleaned regularly to
prevent grease and food particles from building up:
• Inside and outside surfaces
• Door and door seals
• Turntable and Roller rings
A few simple precautions should be taken when storing or having your
microwave oven serviced.
The oven must not be used if the door or door seals are damaged:
• Broken hinge
• Deteriorated seals
• Distorted or bent oven casing
Only a qualified microwave service technician should perform repair.
ALWAYS ensure that the door seals are clean and the door closes
properly.
NEVER remove the outer casing from the oven. If the oven is faulty and
needs servicing or you are in doubt about its condition:
Failure to maintain the oven in a clean condition could lead to
deterioration of the surface that could adversely affect the life of the
appliance and possibly result in a hazardous situation.
• Unplug it from the wall socket
• Contact the nearest after-sales service centre
1. Clean the outside surfaces with a soft cloth and warm, soapy water.
Rinse and dry.
If you wish to store your oven away temporarily, choose a dry, dust-free
place.
Reason : Dust and damp may adversely affect the working parts in the
oven.
2. Remove any splashes or stains on the inside surfaces or on the roller
ring with a soapy cloth. Rinse and dry.
3. To loosen hardened food particles and remove smells, place a cup
of diluted lemon juice on the turntable and heat for ten minutes at
maximum power.
This microwave oven is not intended for commercial use.
4. Wash the dishwasher-safe plate whenever necessary.
DO NOT spill water in the vents. NEVER use any abrasive products or
chemical solvents. Take particular care when cleaning the door seals to
ensure that no particles:
• Accumulate
• Prevent the door from closing correctly
Clean the microwave oven cavity right after each use with a mild
detergent solution, but let the microwave oven cool down before
cleaning in order to avoid injury.
