Important Safety Instructions, continued
• Do not operate any other heating or cooking appliance beneath this
appliance.
• Do not mount unit over or near any portion of a heating or cooking
appliance.
• Do not mount over a sink.
• Do not store anything directly on top of the appliance when it is in
operation.
• This over-the-range oven was designed for use over ranges no wider
than 91.44 cm(36 inches). It may be installed over both gas and
electric cooking equipment.
• 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, etc.
• 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 door and oven surfaces, use only mild, nonabrasive
soaps or detergents applied with a sponge or soft cloth.
• 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.
• To reduce the risk of fire in the oven:
a. Do not overcook food. Watch appliance carefully if paper, plastic,
or other combustible materials are inside.
b. Remove wire twist-ties from plastic cooking bags before placing
bags in oven.
c. 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.
d. 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.
• Do not try to preheat oven or operate while empty.
• Do not cook without the glass tray in place on the oven floor. Food will

• Remove lids from baby food before heating. After heating baby food,
stir well and test temperature by tasting before serving.
• 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 microwave oven is not always present.
THIS COULD RESULT IN VERY HOT LIQUIDS SUDDENLY
BOILING OVER WHEN THE CONTAINER IS DISTURBED
OR A SPOON OR OTHER UTENSIL IS INSERTED INTO
THE LIQUID.
To reduce the risk of injury to persons:
1.
2.
3.

Safety
IMPORTANT GROUNDING
WARNING
Do not cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the
power cord under any circumstances.
This appliance must be grounded. In the event of an electrical short circuit,
grounding reduces the risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire
for the electrical current. This appliance is equipped with a cord that
includes a grounding wire and a grounding plug. The plug must be
plugged into an outlet that is properly installed and grounded. Plug the
three-prong power cord into a properly grounded outlet of standard 115120 voltage, 60 Hz. Your oven should be the only appliance on this circuit.
NOTE
Connect the oven only to a 20A greateror over dedicated circuit.
WARNING
THE VENT FAN
Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of
electric shock. Consult a qualified electrician or servicer if
you do not understand the grounding instructions or if you
are not sure if the appliance is properly grounded.
Do not use an extension cord with this appliance. If the
power cord is too short, have a qualified electrician or
service technician install an outlet near the appliance.
The fan will operate automatically under certain conditions
(see page 15).Take care to prevent the starting and spreading
of accidental cooking fires while the vent fan is in use.
• In the event of a grease fire on the surface units below the microwave
oven, smother a flaming pan on the surface unit by covering the pan
completely with a lid, a cookie sheet or a flat tray.
• Never leave surface units beneath your microwave oven unattended
at high heat settings. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers
that may ignite and spread if the microwave vent fan is operating. To
minimize automatic fan operation, use adequate sized cookware and
use high heat on surface units only when necessary.
• Clean Ventilating Hoods Frequently - Grease should not be allowed
to accumulate on hood of filter.
• When flaming foods under the hood, turn the fan on.
• Use care when cleaning the vent-hood filter. Corrosive cleaning
agent, such as lye-based oven cleaner, may damage the filter.

Cooking Utensils
Not Recommended
•
Recommended Use
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Glass and glass-ceramic bowls and dishes — Use for heating or
cooking.
Microwavable browning dish — Use to brown the exterior of small
items such as steaks, chops, or pancakes. Follow the directions
provided with your browning dish.
Microwavable plastic wrap — Use to retain steam. Leave a small
opening for some steam to escape and avoid placing it directly on
the food.
Wax paper — Use as a cover to prevent spattering.
Paper towels and napkins — Use for short-term heating and
covering; they absorb excess moisture and prevent spattering. Do
not use recycled paper towels, which may contain metal and can
catch fire.
Paper plates and cups — Use for short-term heating at low
temperatures. Do not use recycled paper, which may contain metal
and can catch fire.
Thermometers — Use only those labeled “Microwave Safe” and
follow all directions. Check the food in several places. Conventional
thermometers may be used once the food has been removed from
the oven.
•
•
•
•
Glass jars and bottles — Regular glass is too thin to be used in a
microwave, and can shatter.
Paper bags — These are a fire hazard, except for popcorn bags that
are designed for microwave use.
Styrofoam plates and cups — These can melt and leave an
unhealthy residue on food.
Plastic storage and food containers — Containers such as
margarine tubs can melt in the microwave.
Metal utensils — These can damage your oven. Remove all metal
before cooking.
Testing Utensils
If you are not sure whether a dish is microwave-safe or not, you can perform this test:
1
Fill a measuring cup with water and put it inside your oven, next to
the dish you want to test.
2
Press the One Minute + button once to heat them for one minute at
High power.
Limited Use
•
•
•
•
Aluminum foil — Use narrow strips of foil to prevent overcooking of
exposed areas. Using too much foil can damage your oven, so be
careful.
Ceramic, porcelain, and stoneware — Use these if they are
labeled “Microwave Safe”. If they are not labeled, test them to make
sure they can be used safely. Never use dishes with metallic trim.
Plastic — Use only if labeled “Microwave Safe”. Other plastics can
melt.
Straw, wicker, and wood — Use only for short-term heating, as
they can be flammable.
The water should be warm and the dish you are testing should be cool. If
the dish is warm, then it is absorbing microwave energy and is not
acceptable for use in the microwave.

Cooking Instructions
Cooking Techniques
General Tips
Stirring
•
Stir foods such as casseroles and vegetables while cooking to distribute
heat evenly. Food at the outside of the dish absorbs more energy and
heats more quickly, so stir from the outside to the center. The oven will
turn off when you open the door to stir your food.
•
Arrangement
Arrange unevenly shaped foods, such as chicken pieces or chops, with
the thicker, meatier parts toward the outside of the turntable where they
receive more microwave energy. To prevent overcooking, place thin or
delicate parts toward the center of the turntable.
•
•
Shielding
Shield food with narrow strips of aluminum foil to prevent overcooking.
Areas that need shielding include poultry wing-tips, the ends of poultry
legs, and corners of square baking dishes. Use only small amounts of
aluminum foil. Larger amounts can damage your oven.
•
•
Turning
Turn foods over midway through cooking to expose all parts to microwave energy. This is especially important with large items such as
roasts.
•
Standing
Foods cooked in the microwave build up internal heat and continue to
cook for a few minutes after the oven stops. Let foods stand to complete
cooking, especially foods such as roasts and whole vegetables. Roasts
need this time to complete cooking in the center without overcooking the
outer areas. All liquids, such as soup or hot chocolate, should be shaken
or stirred when cooking is complete. Let liquids stand a moment before
serving. When heating baby food, stir well and test the temperature
before serving.
•
Adding Moisture
Microwave energy is attracted to water molecules. Food that is uneven
in moisture content should be covered or allowed to stand so that the
heat disperses evenly. Add a small amount of water to dry food to help it
cook.
Venting
After covering dish with plastic wrap, you vent plastic wrap by turning
back one corner so excess steam can escape.
18
Dense foods, such as potatoes, take longer to heat than lighter
foods. Foods with a delicate texture should be heated at a low power
level to avoid becoming tough.
Altitude and the type of cookware you are using can affect cooking
time. When using a new recipe, use the minimum cooking time and
check the food occasionally to prevent overcooking.
Foods with a non-porous skin such as potatoes or hot dogs, should
be pierced to prevent bursting.
Frying with heating oil or fat is not recommended. Fat and oil can
suddenly boil over and cause severe burns.
Some ingredients heat faster than others. For example, the jelly
inside a jelly doughnut will be hotter than the dough. Keep this in
mind to avoid burns.
Home canning in the microwave oven is not recommended because
all harmful bacteria may not be destroyed by the microwave heating
process.
Although microwaves do not heat the cookware, the heat is from the
food often transferred to the cookware. Always use pot holders when
removing food from the microwave and instruct children to do the
same.
Making candy in the microwave is not recommended as candy can
heat to very high temperatures. Keep this in mind to avoid injury.

Cooking Instructions
Auto Sensor Cook
Important
The Auto Sensor allows you to cook your food automatically by detecting the amount of humidity generated from the food while cooking.
• When cooking food, the humidity is generated. The Auto Sensor
determines the proper time and power level by detecting the
humidity from the food, eliminating the need to set the cooking time
and power level.
• When you cover a container with its lid or plastic wrap during Sensor
Cooking, the Auto Sensor will detect the humidity generated after the
container has been saturated with steam.
• Shortly before cooking ends, the remaining cooking time will begin
its count down. This will be a good time for you to rotate or stir the
food for even cooking if it is necessary.
• Before auto sensor cooking food may be seasoned with herbs,
spices or browning sauces. A word of caution though, salt or sugar
may cause burn spots on food so these ingredients should be added
after cooking.
• The More/Less function pad is used to increase or decrease cooking
time. You should use this function to adjust the degree of cooking to
suit your personal taste.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Utensils & Cover For Sensor Cooking
•
•
•
•
•
To obtain good cooking results with this function, follow the
directions for selecting appropriate containers and covers in the
charts in this book.
Always use microwave-safe containers and cover them with their lids
or with plastic wrap. When using plastic wrap, turn back one corner
to allow steam to escape at the proper rate.
Always cover with the lid intended for the utensil being used. If the
utensil does not have its own lid, use plastic wrap.
Fill containers at least half full.
Foods that require stirring or rotating should be stirred or turned at
the end of the Sensor Cook cycle, when the time has started to count
down on the display.
19
It is not advisable to use the Auto Sensor cooking feature on a
continuous cooking operation, i.e. one cooking operation
immediately after another.
Install the oven in a well ventilated location for proper cooling and
airflow and to ensure the sensor will operate accurately.
To avoid poor results, do not use the Auto Sensor when the room
ambient temperature is too high or too low.
Avoid placing the oven near high moisture appliances, since this will
interfere with the proper performance of the Auto Sensor.
Always keep the inside of the oven clean. Wipe all spills with a damp
cloth.
This oven is designed for household use only.

Vegetables should be washed just before cooking. Often, no extra
water is needed. If dense vegetables such as potatoes, carrots and
green beans are being cooked, add about ¼ 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 after half the cooking time.
Always place vegetables like asparagus and broccoli with the stem
ends 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 skin pricked in several spots before cooking to
prevent them from bursting.
For more even cooking, stir or rearrange whole vegetables halfway
through the cooking 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.

Appendix
Troubleshooting Guide
Before you call a repair person for your oven, check this list of possible
problems and solutions.
Using your microwave causes TV or radio interference.
•
Neither the oven’s display nor the oven operate.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Properly insert the plug into a grounded outlet.
If the outlet is controlled by a wall switch, make sure the wall switch
is turned on.
Remove the plug from the outlet, wait ten seconds, then plug it in
again.
Reset the circuit breaker or replace any blown fuse.
Plug another appliance into the outlet; if the other appliance doesn’t
work, have a qualified electrician repair the outlet.
Plug the oven into a different outlet.
Note :
If the oven is set to cook for more than 25 minutes, it will automatically adjust itself to 70 percent power after 25 minutes to
avoid overcooking.
Care and Cleaning
Follow these instructions to clean and care for your oven.
• Keep the inside of the oven clean. Food particles and spilled liquids
can stick to the oven walls, causing the oven to work less efficiently.
• Wipe up spills immediately. Use a damp cloth and mild soap. Do not
use harsh detergents or abrasives.
• To help loosen baked on food particles or liquids, heat two cups of
water (add the juice of one lemon if you desire to keep the oven
fresh) in a four-cup measuring glass at High power for five minutes
or until boiling. Let stand in the oven for one or two minutes.
• Remove the glass tray from the oven when cleaning the oven or tray.
To prevent the tray from breaking, handle it carefully and do not put it
in water immediately after cooking. Wash the tray carefully in warm
sudsy water or in the dishwasher.
• Clean the outside surface of the oven with soap and a damp cloth.
Dry with a soft cloth. To prevent damage to the operating parts of the
oven, don’t let water seep into the openings.
• Wash the door window with very mild soap and water. Be sure to use
a soft cloth to avoid scratching.
• If steam accumulates inside or outside the oven door, wipe with a
soft cloth. Steam can accumulate when operating the oven in high
humidity and in no way indicates microwave leakage.
• Never operate the oven without food in it; this can damage the
magnetron tube or glass tray. You may wish to leave a cup of water
in the oven when it is not in use to prevent damage if the oven is
accidentally turned on.
The oven’s display works, but the power won’t come
on.
•
•
•
•
Make sure the door is closed securely.
Check to see if packing material or other material is stuck to the door
seal.
Check for door damage.
Press Cancel twice and re-enter all cooking instructions.
The power goes off before the set time has elapsed.
•
•
If there has not been a power outage, remove the plug from the
outlet, wait ten seconds, then plug it in again. If there was a power
outage, the time indicator will display “ ENJOY YOUR COOKING - - PRESS MY CHOICE FOR PERSONAL OPTIONS” Reset the clock
and any cooking instructions.
Reset the circuit breaker or replace any blown fuse.
The food is cooking too slowly.
•
Make sure the oven is on its own 20 amp circuit line. Operating
another appliance on the same circuit can cause a voltage drop. If
necessary, move the oven to its own circuit.
You see sparks or arcing.
•
Remove any metallic utensils, cookware, or metal ties. If using foil,
use only narrow strips and allow at least one inch between the foil
and interior oven walls.
The turntable makes noises or sticks.
•
•
This is similar to the interference caused by other small appliances,
such as hair dryers. Move your microwave further away from other
appliances, like your TV or radio.
Clean the turntable, roller ring and oven floor.
Make sure the turntable and roller ring are positioned correctly.

Exhaust Feature
The Vent Fan
Charcoal Filter
The exhaust fan has 2 metal reusable grease filter.
A charcoal filter can be used for removing smoke and odors in case the
fan is not vented outside.
The charcoal filter cannot be cleaned. It must be replaced.
If the oven is installed on the wall(or cabinet) and not vented to the outside, the air will be recirculated through a disposable charcoal filter that
helps remove smoke and odors.
The charcoal filter should be replaced when it is noticeably dirty or discolored (usually after 6 to 12 months, depending on hood usage).
Removing Charcoal Filter
To remove the charcoal filter, disconnect power at the main fuse or circuit breaker panel or pull the plug.
Remove the top grille by removing the 2 screws that hold it in place.
Slide the filter towards the front of the oven and remove it.
Reusable Grease Filters
The metal filters trap grease released by foods on the cooktop. They
also prevent flames from foods on the cooktop from damaging the inside
of the microwave.
For this reason, the filters must ALWAYS be in place when the vent fan
is used. The grease filters should be cleaned once a month, or as
needed.
Screws
Removing and Cleaning the Filters
To remove, slide it to the left using the tab. Pull it down and out.
To clean the grease filters, soak and then swish them around in hot
water and detergent.
Don’t use ammonia or ammonia products because they will darken the
metal.
Light brushing can be used to remove embedded dirt.
Rinse, shake and let them dry before replacing.
To replace, slide the filters in the frame slot on the left of the opening.
Pull up and to the right to lock into place.
Remove 2 grille screws to remove the grill
