About this microwave oven
Microwaves are high-frequency electromagnetic waves similar to radio waves. While radio waves
may vary in length from one metre to many kilometres, microwaves are very short (less than 12.5
centimetres). Microwaves do not make any heat themselves but only cause water molecules in
food to vibrate. This vibration produces the heat that cooks the food. This is why your food will
come out of the microwave piping hot, when your utensils inside the oven stay much cooler. The
microwaves do not stay in the air or in the food when you open the microwave oven door.
The microwave oven will work using an ordinary household electrical socket. Inside the
microwave oven is the magnetron, which turns the electrical energy into microwaves. Microwaves
cannot go through metal, so the inside of the oven is lined with metal. The door is lined with a fine
metal mesh which stops microwaves getting through. This means that when the microwave oven
door is shut, there is no possibility that microwaves can be released. This is why the microwave
oven has been made so that it will not work when the door is open.
Before you use your microwave oven
1
2
Remove all the packaging. Do not remove the small piece of card from the right hand side
of the cavity wall. This is called a wave-guide cover and allows the microwaves to pass
through to cook the food.
Check the oven after unpacking for any visual damage such as:
¾

¾
¾
A misaligned door
Damage to the door
Dents or holes in the door window and screen
Dents in the inside
If you can see any damage do not use the oven

Safety instructions
Warning: this oven must be positioned so that the plug is accessible and the plug socket is within
easy reach of the power cord.
Warning: only allow children to use the oven without supervision when adequate instructions have
been given so that the child is able to use the oven in a safe way and understands the hazards of
improper use.
¾
Children should be supervised to ensure they do not play with the appliance, and the
appliance and cable should be kept completely out of reach of young children.
¾
This appliance is not designed for use by children, or persons with reduced physical, sensory
or mental capabilities, and should not be used by such persons unless they can do so safely.
Where necessary, such persons (or anyone with lack of experience or knowledge) should
first be given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person
responsible for their safety.
Warning: it is hazardous for anyone other than a competent person to carry out any service or
repair operation which involves the removal of a cover which gives protection against exposure to
microwave energy.
Warning: if the door or door seals are damaged, the oven must not be operated until it has been
repaired by a competent person. The door seals are located around the window on the inside of
the door. These seals are not airtight, although no microwaves can be released; it is normal for
small amounts of air or steam to escape when the oven is in use.
Warning: liquids and other foods must not be heated in sealed containers, as they are liable to
explode.
¾
Do not operate the microwave if damaged or after it malfunctions. In the event the supply
cord is damaged, it must only be replaced by a qualified service engineer, with a suitably
approved part.
¾
Keep the microwave, cable and plug dry, never immerse in water.
¾
When heating food in plastic or paper containers, keep an eye on the oven due to the
possibility of ignition
¾
Only use the oven for preparing food. For example do not use for drying clothes, paper or
any other non-food items, or for sterilising purposes.
¾
To avoid damaging the oven, do not use the oven when the cavity is empty. The oven may
be empty (used as a timer) with the power set to zero – see page 8.
¾
Do not use the oven when it is empty. This could damage the oven.
¾
Do not store anything in the oven, such as papers, cookbooks and so on.
¾
Do not cook any food surrounded by a membrane, such as egg yolks, potatoes, chicken
livers, ready meals and so on without piercing them several times with a fork.
¾
Eggs in the i r shell and whole hard-boiled eggs should not be heated in microwave ovens
since they may explode, even after microwave heating has ended.
¾
Never cover the air vents or put any objects into the openings in the outer case.
¾
Never remove parts from the oven such as the feet, screws and so on.
¾
Only use utensils recommended in these instructions – see page 12.
¾
Do not try to deep-fry foods in this oven.
¾
Heat from the contents of a container may be transmitted to the container itself, so please be
careful when removing it from the oven. Please remember that the food or liquid inside will be
releasing some steam or will be spitting. Never cover any container fully, always leave a gap
for steam to escape.
¾
Cooking utensils may become hot because of heat transferred from the heated food. This is
especially true if plastic wrap has been covering the top and handles of the utensil. You may
need oven gloves to handle the utensil.

In order to avoid burns, the contents of feeding bottles and baby food jars shall be stirred or
shaken and the temperature checked before consumption.
Always test the temperature of cooked food, never eat or drink food or liquid straight from the
oven, allow it to stand for a few minutes and stir to distribute the heat evenly.
Microwave heating of beverages can result delayed eruptive boiling, therefore care must be
taken when handling the container.
Food containing a mixture of fat and water (for example, stock) should stand for 30 to 60
seconds in the oven after it has been turned off. This is to allow the mixture to settle and to
prevent it from bubbling when a spoon is placed in it, or a stock cube is added.
When heating or cooking food or liquid, remember that there are certain foods (such as
Christmas puddings, jam and mincemeat), which heat up very quickly.
When heating or cooking foods that contain a lot of fat or sugar, do not use plastic containers.
Always have the glass tray and turntable support in place when using the oven.
Do not cook food directly on the glass tray. Put food on a suitable plate or in a bowl before
putting it in the oven.
To reduce the risk of fire in the oven cavity:
¾
Do not overcook food
¾
Do not leave the microwave oven unattended while you are using it
¾
Remove wire twist-ties from bags before putting the bag in the oven
¾
If materials inside the oven catch fire, keep the oven door closed, turn the oven off at the wall
switch, or shut the power off at the fuse or circuit-breaker panel
FOOD SAFETY
¾
Do not cook raw meat or raw shellfish in a microwave, due to the possibility for uneven
heating.
¾
Do not use the microwave oven for home canning or bottling. Improperly canned or bottle
foods may spoil and be dangerous to eat.
¾
Follow cooking instructions on food packaging and always check the temperature of food
before serving.
Microwave oven installation
Warning: do not install the oven over a cooker or other heat producing appliance. This will damage
the oven. The oven must be placed away from high temperatures and steam.
¾

Before you clean the microwave oven, turn it off and unplug it.
Keep the inside of the oven clean. When food or liquids stick to the oven walls, wipe
with a damp cloth. We recommend that you do not use harsh detergent or abrasives.
On the right hand side wall of the cavity is the wave guide cover. Microwaves are passed
through this c o v e r to enable your food to cook. It is important that the wave guide cover
is kept clean at all times. To do this wipe with mild detergents and water, then dry. Do
not remove the waveguide cover.
You should clean the outside of the oven with a damp cloth and polish dry with a soft dry
cloth. Do not allow water to seep into the ventilation openings.
Wipe the door and window on both sides, the door seals and adjacent parts frequently
with a damp cloth to remove any spills or spatters. Do not use an abrasive cleaner.
Do not allow the control panel to become wet. Clean with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use
detergents, abrasives or spray-on cleaners on the control panel.
If steam builds up inside or around the outside of the oven door, wipe with a soft cloth.
This may happen when the microwave oven is used in humid conditions.
If the inside of the oven smells, put a cup of water with the juice and the skin of one
lemon in a deep microwave bowl. Microwave it for three minutes, wipe the cavity walls
thoroughly and then dry with a soft cloth.
Regularly clean the turntable support and oven floor. Simply wipe the bottom surface of the
oven with mild detergents and water, and then dry. You can wash the turntable support in
soapy water. Check that it is correctly fitted after cleaning.
Regularly remove the glass tray to clean it, and wash in warm soapy water.
Do not remove the waveguide cover on the inside wall of the cavity.

Problem solving
The microwave oven may cause interference to your radio, TV or similar equipment. If it does,
you can get rid of the interference by moving the radio, TV or equipment as far away from your
microwave oven as possible.
If the oven doesn’t work, if the display does not appear or if the display has disappeared
¾
Make sure the oven is plugged in securely. If it is not, remove the plug from the socket, wait
10 seconds and plug it in again securely.
¾
Check the premises for a blown circuit fuse or a tripped main circuit breaker. If these seem
to be working properly, test the socket with another appliance.
If the microwave power will not work
¾
Make sure the door is securely closed. Otherwise, the microwave energy will not flow into
the oven.

Non-rewireable mains plug
If your appliance is supplied with a non-rewireable plug fitted to the mains lead you will find that
it incorporates a fuse, the value of which is indicated either on the base of the plug or on the
fuse carrier. Should the fuse need replacing, you must use an ASTA approved fuse
(conforming to BS1362) of the same rating. If the fuse cover is lost the plug must not be used
until a replacement is obtained from an electrical supplier. If you need to remove the plug, cut it
from the mains lead and dispose of it. Never attempt to re-use this plug or insert it into a socket
outlet, as there is a very great risk of an electric shock.
