Unpacking and Examining Your Oven
on the sides, top and at the rear of the oven for air
circulation. Do not place or install the oven in any area
where heat and steam are generated; for example,
next to or above a conventional gas or electric range
or above a conventional wall oven. Heat and steam
may damage the electronics or the mechanical parts of
the oven.
Remove:
1. all packing materials from inside the oven cavity;
however, DO NOT REMOVE THE WAVEGUIDE
COVER, which is located on the right cavity wall.
Read enclosures and SAVE the
Operation Manual.
2. the feature sticker, if there is
one, from the outside of the door.
Check the oven for any damage,
such as misaligned or bent door,
damaged door seals and sealing
surfaces, broken or loose door hinges and latches and
dents inside the cavity or on the door. If there is any
damage, do not operate the oven and contact your
dealer or SHARP AUTHORIZED SERVICER.
Built-in Kit
Your oven can be built into a cabinet or wall—not
near or above a heat source—using Sharp’s white
Built-In Kit RK-46W24 for the R-426HW, black
RK-46K24 for the R-426HK, R-426HQ and stainless
steel RK-46S24 for the R-426HS. If your dealer does
not stock the kit, it can be ordered directly from the
Sharp Accessories and Supplies Center. Have your

1-800-642-2122 for ordering the kit to be sent to
your address.
The kit includes ducts, finish trim strips and easy-tofollow instructions for installation as well as the
location of the power supply.
Choosing a Location for Your Oven
You will use the oven frequently so plan its location for
ease of use. It's wise, if possible, to have counter space
on at least one side of the oven. Allow at least 2 inches
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. Should you only have a
2-prong outlet, have a qualified electrician install a correct wall receptacle.
A 3-prong adapter may be purchased and used temporarily if local codes allow.
Follow package directions.
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce risk of becoming entangled in
or tripping over a longer cord.
Extension Cord
If it is necessary to use an extension cord, use only a 3-wire extension cord that
has a 3-blade grounding plug and a 3-slot receptacle that will accept the plug on
the microwave oven. The marked rating of the extension cord should be AC 115120 volt, 15 amp. or more.
Be careful not to drape the cord over the countertop or table where it can be
pulled on by children or tripped over accidentally.
Notes:
1. If you have any questions about the grounding or electrical instructions,
consult a qualified electrician or service person.
2. Neither Sharp 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.
Radio or TV Interference
Should there be any interference caused by the microwave oven to your radio or TV, check that the microwave oven
is on a different electrical circuit, relocate the radio or TV as far away from the oven as feasible or check position and
signal of receiving antenna.

for the exterior of the oven to be warm to the touch
when cooking or reheating.
A good microwave cookbook is a valuable asset.
Check it for microwave cooking principles, techniques,
hints and recipes. See pages 19 and 20 for ordering
the Ultimate Accessory, the Sharp Carousel Microwave
Cookbook.
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. Vents on the oven
back must not be blocked.
NEVER use the oven without the turntable and support
The oven is for food preparation only. It should not be
used to dry clothes or newspapers.
nor turn the turntable over so that a large dish could
be placed in the oven. The turntable will turn both
clockwise and counterclockwise.
Your oven is rated 1200 watts by using the IEC
Test Procedure method. In using recipes or package
directions, check food a minute or two before the minimum
time and add time accordingly.
ALWAYS have food in the oven when it is on to absorb
the microwave energy.
When using the oven at power levels below 100%, you
may hear the magnetron cycling on and off. It is normal

INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW
ABOUT UTENSILS AND COVERINGS
The following coverings are ideal:
It is not necessary to buy all new cookware. Many
pieces already in your kitchen can be used successfully in your new microwave oven. Make sure the
utensil does not touch the interior walls during cooking.
• Paper towels are good for covering foods for reheating and absorbing fat while cooking bacon.
• Wax paper can be used for cooking and
reheating.
Use these utensils for safe microwave cooking
and reheating:
• Plastic wrap that is specially marked for microwave use can be used for cooking and reheating. DO NOT allow plastic wrap to touch food.
Vent so steam can escape.
• glass ceramic (Pyroceram®), such as
Corningware®.
• heat-resistant glass (Pyrex®)
• Lids that are microwave-safe are a good choice
because heat is kept near the food to hasten
cooking.
• microwave-safe plastics
• paper plates
• microwave-safe pottery, stoneware and
porcelain
• Oven cooking bags are good for large meats or
foods that need tenderizing. DO NOT use metal
twist ties. Remember to slit bag so steam can
escape.
• browning dish (Do not exceed recommended
preheating time. Follow manufacturer's
directions.)
How to use aluminum foil in your microwave
oven:
These items can be used for short time reheating of foods that have little fat or sugar in them:
• Small flat pieces of aluminum foil placed
smoothly on the food can be used to shield
areas that are either defrosting or cooking too
quickly.
• wood, straw, wicker
DO NOT USE
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
• Foil should not come closer than one inch to any
surface of the oven.
metal pans and bakeware
dishes with metallic trim
non-heat-resistant glass
non-microwave-safe plastics (margarine tubs)
recycled paper products
brown paper bags
food storage bags
metal twist-ties
Should you have questions about utensils or coverings,
check a good microwave cookbook or follow recipe
suggestions.
ACCESSORIES There are many microwave accessories available for purchase. Evaluate carefully before
you purchase so that they meet your needs. A microwave-safe thermometer will assist you in determining
correct doneness and assure you that foods have
been cooked to safe temperatures. Sharp is not
responsible for any damage to the oven when accessories are used.
Should you wish to check if a dish is safe for
microwaving, place the empty dish in the oven and
microwave on HIGH for 30 seconds. A dish which
becomes very hot should not be used.
ABOUT CHILDREN AND THE MICROWAVE
Children below the age of 7 should use the microwave
oven with a supervising person very near to them.
Between the ages of 7 and 12, the supervising person
should be in the same room.
Children should be taught all safety precautions: use
potholders, remove coverings carefully, pay special
attention to packages that crisp food because they
may be extra hot.
The child must be able to reach the oven comfortably;
if not, he/she should stand on a sturdy stool.
Don’t assume that because a child has mastered one
cooking skill he/she can cook everything.
At no time should anyone be allowed to lean or swing
on the oven door.
Children need to learn that the microwave oven is not
a toy. See page 17 for Child Lock feature.

INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW
ABOUT MICROWAVE COOKING
• Arrange food carefully. Place thickest areas towards
outside of dish.
• Rearrange foods such as meatballs halfway
through cooking both from top to bottom and from
the center of the dish to the outside.
• Watch cooking time. Cook for the shortest amount
of time indicated and add more as needed. Food
severely overcooked can smoke or ignite.
• Add standing time. Remove food from oven and
stir, if possible. Cover for standing time which allows
the food to finish cooking without overcooking.
• 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.
• Check for doneness. Look for signs indicating that
cooking temperatures have been reached.
Doneness signs include:
• 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.
- Food steams throughout, not just at edge.
• Stir foods from outside to center of dish once or twice
during cooking, if possible.
- Poultry thigh joints move easily.
• Turn foods over once during microwaving to
speed cooking of such foods as chicken and hamburgers. Large items like roasts must be turned over
at least once.
- Fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.
- Center bottom of dish is very hot to the touch.
- Meat and poultry show no pinkness.
ABOUT SAFETY
• Check foods to see that they are cooked to
the United States Department of Agriculture's
recommended temperatures.
TEMP
160°F
165°F
• 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.
FOOD
• 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.
... for fresh pork, ground meat,
boneless white poultry, fish,
seafood, egg dishes and frozen
prepared food.
• Stay near the oven while it's in use and check
cooking progress frequently so that there is no
chance of overcooking food.
... for leftover, ready-to-reheat
refrigerated, and deli and carryout “fresh” food.
170°F
... white meat of poultry.
180°F
... dark meat of poultry.
• 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.
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 oven use.
• Use care when removing items from the oven so
that the utensil, your clothes or accessories do not
touch the safety door latches.

SENSOR COOK
Sharp's Sensor is a semi-conductor device that detects
the vapor (moisture and humidity) emitted from the food
as it heats. The sensor adjusts the cooking times and
power level for various foods and quantities.
8. Check food temperature after cooking. If additional
time is needed, continue to cook manually.
Using Sensor Settings:
9. Each food has a cooking hint. Touch the CUSTOM
HELP pad when the HELP indicator is lighted in
the display.
1. After the oven is plugged in, wait 2 minutes before
using Sensor Cook.
Covering Foods:
Some foods work best when covered. Use the cover
recommended in the Sensor Cook chart for these foods.
2. Be sure the exterior of the cooking container and
the interior of the oven are dry. Wipe off any moisture with a dry cloth or paper towel.
1. Casserole lid.
2. Plastic wrap: Use plastic wrap recommended for
microwave cooking. Cover dish loosely; allow
approximately 1/2 inch to remain uncovered to
allow steam to escape. Plastic wrap should not
touch food.
3. The oven works with foods at normal storage temperature. For example, popcorn would be at room
temperature.
4. Any Sensor Cook selection can be programmed
with More or Less Time Adjustment. See page 16.
3. Wax paper: Cover dish completely; fold excess
wrap under dish to secure. If dish is wider than
paper, overlap two pieces at least one inch to cover.
5. More or less food than the quantity listed in the
chart should be cooked following the guidelines in
any microwave cookbook.
Be careful when removing any covering to allow steam
to escape away from you.
6. During the first part of Sensor Cook, the food name
will appear on the display. Do not open the oven
door or touch STOP/CLEAR during this part of
the cooking cycle. The measurement of vapor
will be interrupted. If this occurs, an error message
will appear. To continue cooking, touch the
STOP/CLEAR pad and cook manually.
EXAMPLE:
You can cook many foods by touching any Sensor
pad and START/MINUTE PLUS. You don’t need to
calculate cooking time or power level.
• Suppose you want to reheat canned chili.
When the sensor detects the vapor emitted from
the food, the remainder of cooking time will appear.
The door may be opened when remaining cooking
time appears on the display. At this time, you may
stir or season food, as desired.
PROCEDURE
Touch SENSOR REHEAT pad.
Close the door and then touch
START/MINUTE PLUS pad.
7. If the sensor does not detect vapor properly when
popping popcorn, the oven will turn off, and the
correct time of day will be displayed. If the sensor
does not detect vapor properly when cooking other
foods, ERROR will be displayed, and the oven will
turn off.

CLEANING AND CARE
Disconnect the power cord before cleaning or leave the door open to inactivate the oven during cleaning.
Exterior-painted
Clean the outside painted surfaces with mild soap and water. Rinse and
polish dry with a soft cloth. Do not use any type of household or abrasive
cleaner.
Exterior-stainless steel
Clean the stainless steel surfaces with mild soap and water. Rinse and
polish dry with a soft cloth. You may wish to purchase a stainless steel
polish for enhancing the appearance of the stainless steel parts of the
oven exterior. Be sure to follow manufacturer’s directions for the polish.
Never use any type of abrasive cleaner on stainless steel.
Exterior
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. Cleaners which are marked specifically for use with stainless steel
may be used with stainless steel model. Follow package directions exactly. Avoid the use of any harsh cleaner 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, 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
Cleaning is easy because little 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. NEVER SPRAY OVEN CLEAN-
ERS DIRECTLY ONTO ANY PART OF THE OVEN.
Interior
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
The turntable and turntable support can be removed for easy cleaning. Wash them in mild,
sudsy water; for stubborn stains use a mild cleanser and non abrasive scouring sponge.
They are also dishwasher-proof. Use upper rack of dishwasher. The turntable motor shaft is
not sealed, so excess water or spills should be wiped up immediately.
