INSTALLATION
INSTRUCTIONS
Before
you begin
operating
the oven, carefully
read the following
1. Empty the microwave oven. Clean the inside with
a soft, clamp cloth. Check for damage such as a
door that isn't lined up correctly, damage around
the door, or dents inside the oven or on the
exterior. If there is any damage, do not operate the
oven until a designated service technician has
checked it and made any needed repairs.

2. Put the oven on a cart, counter, table, or shelf that is
strong enough to hold the oven and the food and
utensils you put in it. (The control side of the unit
is the heavy side. Use care when handling the
oven.) The weight of the oven is about 55 Ibs
(25 kg). The microwave oven should be at a
temperature above 50°F (10°C) for proper operation.
NOTE: You can build your microwave oven into a
wall or cabinet by using one of the trim kits listed in
the "Built-in kits" section.
NOTE: Do not block the exhaust vents or air intake
openings. Allow a few inches of space at the back of
the oven where the exhaust vents are located.
Blocking the exhaust vents could cause damage to
the oven and poor cooking results. Make sure the
microwave oven legs are in place to ensure proper
airflow. If vents are blocked, a sensitive thermal safety
device may automatically turn the oven off. The oven
should work properly once it has cooled.

GROUNDING
• For all cord connected appliances:
The microwave oven 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 electric current. The
microwave oven is equipped with a cord having
a grounding wire with a grounding plug. The plug
must be plugged into an outlet that is properly
installed and grounded.
WARNING:
Improper use of the grounding plug
can result in a risk of electric shock.
INSTRUCTIONS
Do not use an extension cord. If the power supply
cord is too short, have a qualified electrician or
serviceman install an outlet near the microwave oven.
• For a permanently
connected
appliance:
The microwave oven must be connected to a
grounded, metallic, permanent wiring system, or
an equipment grounding conductor should be run
with the circuit conductors and connected to the
equipment grounding terminal or lead on the
microwave oven.
Consult a qualified electrician or serviceman if the
grounding instructions are not completely
understood, or if doubt exists as to whether the
microwave oven is properly grounded.

TOKNOW
YOUR
MICROWAVE
OVEN
This section discusses
the concepts
behind microwave
cooking. It also shows you the basics
you need to know to operate your microwave
oven. Please read this information
before you use
your oven.
Microwave energy is not hot. It causes food to make
its own heat, and it's this heat that cooks the food.
_"i',,,,,,,,,, _
,,,,"
",,, "%,
Microwaves are like TV waves, radio waves, or light
waves. You cannot see them, but you can see what
they do.
A magnetron in the microwave oven produces
microwaves. The microwaves move into the oven
where they contact food as it turns on the turntable.
Microwave
+
Your oven has a MAXWAVE TM multiple microwave
distribution system. Microwave energy is released
from two locations, giving you better, more even
cooking.
Oven cavity
Magnetron
Convection
\
Glass
turntable
m
m
Metal
floor
Combination
The glass turntable of your microwave oven lets
microwaves pass through. Then they bounce off a
metal floor, back through the glass turntable, and are
absorbed by the food.
Microwaves pass through most glass, paper, and
plastics without heating them so food absorbs the
energy. Microwaves bounce off metal containers so
food does not absorb the energy.
Convection cooking circulates hot air through the oven
cavity with a fan. The constantly moving air surrounds
the food to heat the outer portion quickly. Your oven
uses convection cooking whenever you use the Auto
Convection, Manual Convection or Combination
cooking programs. DO NOT USE THE OVEN
WITHOUT THE TURNTABLE IN PLACE.
microwave/convection
Sometimes combination microwave-convection
cooking is suggested to get the proper cooking
results. It shortens the cooking time for foods that
normally need a long time to cook. This cooking
process also leaves meats juicy on the inside and
crispy on the outside. In combination cooking, the
convection heat and microwave energy alternate
automatically. Your oven has a setting that makes it
• If you increase or decrease the amount of food
you prepare, the time it takes to cook that food will
also change. For example, if you double a recipe,
add a little more than half the original cooking time.
Check for doneness and, if necessary, add more
time in small increments.

• The lower the temperature of the food being put
into the microwave oven, the longer it takes to cook.
Food at room temperature will be reheated more
quickly than food at refrigerator temperature.
• Food
faster
sugar
water
with a lot of fat and sugar will be heated
than food containing a lot of water. Fat and
will also reach a higher temperature than
in the cooking process.
• The more dense the food, the longer it takes to heat.
"Very dense" food like meat takes longer to reheat
than lighter, more porous food like sponge cakes.
• Smaller pieces of food will cook faster than larger
pieces. Also, same-shaped pieces cook more evenly
than different-shaped pieces.
• With foods that have different thicknesses, the
thinner parts will cook faster than the thicker parts.
Place the thinner parts of chicken wings and legs in
the center of the dish.
• Stirring and turning foods spreads heat quickly to
the center of the dish and avoids overcooking at the
outer edges of the food.
Cover food to:
• Reduce splattering
• Shorten
cooking times
• Keep food moist
You can use any covering that lets microwaves pass
through. See "Getting to Know Your Microwave Oven"
for materials that microwaves will pass through. If you
are using the Sensor function, be sure to vent.
• Several foods (for example: baked potatoes,
sausages, egg yolks, and some fruits) are tightly
covered by a skin or membrane. Steam can build
up under the membrane during cooking, causing
the food to burst. To relieve the pressure and to
prevent bursting, pierce these foods before
cooking with a fork, cocktail pick, or toothpick.
Always allow food to stand after cooking. Standing time after defrosting and cooking allows the
temperature to evenly spread throughout the food,
improving the cooking results.
• The length of the standing time depends on how
much food you are cooking and how dense it is.
Sometimes it can be as short as the time it takes
you to remove the food from the oven and take it to
the serving table. However, with larger, denser food,
the standing time may be as long as 10 minutes.
For best results, place food evenly on the plate. You
can do this in several ways:
• If you are cooking several items of the same
food, such as baked potatoes, place them in a ring
pattern for uniform cooking.
• When cooking foods of uneven shapes or
thickness, such as chicken breasts, place the
smaller or thinner area of the food towards the
center of the dish where it will be heated last.
• Layer thin slices of meat on top of each other.
• When you cook or reheat whole fish, score the
skin - this prevents cracking.
• Do not let food or a container touch the top or
sides of the oven. This will prevent possible arcing.
Metal containers should not be used in a microwave
oven. There are, however, some exceptions. If you
have purchased food which is prepackaged in an
aluminum foil container, refer to the instructions on
the package. When using aluminum foil containers,
cooking times may be longer because microwaves
will only penetrate the top of the food. (See "Oven
Utensils Guide".)
If you use aluminum containers without package
instructions, follow these guidelines:
• Place the container in a glass bowl and add some
water so that it covers the bottom of the container,
not more than ¼ in. (6.4 mm) high. This ensures even
heating of the container bottom.
• Always remove the lid to avoid damage to the oven.
• Use only undamaged containers.
• Do not use containers taller than _ in. (1.9 cm).
• Container must be at least half filled.
• To avoid arcing, there must be a minimum ¼ in.
(6.4 mm) between the aluminum container and the
walls of the oven and also between two aluminum
containers.
• Always
place the container on the turntable.
• Reheating food in aluminum foil containers usually
takes up to double the time compared to reheating
in plastic, glass, china, or paper containers. The
time when food is ready will vary depending upon
the type of container you use.
• Let food stand for 2 to 3 minutes after heating so
that heat is spread evenly throughout container.

• Do not do canning of foods in the oven. Closed
glass jars may explode, resulting in damage to the
oven.
• Do not use the microwave oven to sterilize objects
(baby bottles, etc.). It is difficult to keep the oven at
the high temperature needed for sterilization.

Test dinnerware or cookware before using. To test
a dish for safe use, put it into the oven with 1 cup
(250 mL) of water beside it. Cook at 100% cook
power for one minute. If the dish gets hot and water
stays cool, do not use it. Some dishes (melamine,
some ceramic dinnerware, etc.) absorb microwave
energy and may become too hot to handle or may
slow cooking times. Cooking in metal containers not
designed for microwave use could damage the oven,
as could containers with hidden metal (twist-ties, foil
lining, staples, metallic glaze or trim).
iiiiiiiii

Never lean on the door or allow a child to swing on
it when the door is open.
Use hot pads. Microwave energy does not heat
containers, but the heat from the food can make
the container hot.
Do not use newspaper or other printed paper in the
oven.
Do not dry flowers, fruit, herbs, wood, paper,
gourds, or clothes in the oven.
Do not start a microwave oven when it is empty.
Product life may be shortened. If you practice
programming the oven, put a container of water in
the oven. It is normal for the oven door to look
wavy after the oven has been running for a while.
• When you use a browning dish, the browning
dish bottom must be at least _0 in. (5 mm) above
the turntable. Follow the directions supplied with
the browning dish.
• Never cook or reheat a whole egg inside the
shell. Steam buildup in whole eggs may cause
them to burst, and possibly damage the oven.
Slice hard-boiled eggs before heating. In rare
cases, poached eggs have been known to explode.
Cover poached eggs and allow a standing time of
one minute before cutting into them.
• For best results, stir any liquid several times
during heating or reheating. Liquids heated in
certain containers (especially containers shaped like
cylinders) may become overheated. The liquid may
splash out with a loud noise during or after heating
or when adding ingredients (coffee granules, tea
bags, etc.). This can damage the oven.
• Microwaves may not reach the center of a roast.
The heat spreads to the center from the outer,
cooked areas just as in regular oven cooking. This is
one of the reasons for letting some foods (for
example, roasts or baked potatoes) stand for a while
after cooking, or for stirring some foods during the
cooking time.
• Do not deep fry in the oven. Microwavable
utensils are not suitable and it is difficult to maintain
appropriate deep-frying temperatures.
• Do not overcook potatoes. At the end of the
recommended cooking time, potatoes should be
slightly firm because they will continue cooking
during standing time. After microwaving,
let
potatoes stand for 5 minutes. They will finish
cooking while standing.
Do not try to melt paraffin wax in the oven. Paraffin
wax will not melt in a microwave oven because it
allows microwaves to pass through it.
Do not operate the microwave oven unless the
glass turntable is securely in place and can rotate
freely. The turntable can rotate in either direction.
Make sure the turntable is correct-side up in the
oven. Handle your turntable with care when
removing it from the oven to avoid possibly break_ng it. If your turntable cracks or breaks, contact
your dealer for a replacement.
10
If your electric power line or outlet voltage is less
than 110 volts, cooking times may be longer. Have a
qualified electrician check your electrical system.

For best results, some recipes call for different cook powers. The lower the cook power, the slower the
cooking. Each level stands for a different percentage of cook power. Many microwave cookbook recipes tell
you by number, percent, or name which cook power to use.
The following chart gives the percentage of cook power each level stands for, and the cook power name usually
used. It also tells you when to use each cook power. Follow recipe or food package instructions if available.
NOTE: Refer to a reliable cookbook for cooking times.

You can defrost food by choosing a category and
setting a weight. DEFROST has preset times and cook
powers for 6 categories: Meat, Poultry, Fish, Bagel,
Muffin and Butter.
You are probably used to food weights as being in
pounds and ounces that are fractions of a pound
(for example, 4 ounces equals ¼ pound [113.4 g]).
If the weight on the food package is in fractions of a
pound, you can use the following chart to convert the
weight to decimals.
1. Touch DEFROST.
Once for Meat, twice for Poultry, 3 times for Fish,
4 times for Bagel, 5 times for Muffin, 6 times for
Butter.
2. Touch START.
3. Touch HOUR/1 LB or MIN/0.1 LB pad
for weight when defrosting Meat,
Poultry or Fish. For Bagel, Muffin or
Butter, touch the HOUR pad for
quantity.
NOTE: If the weight setting is "KGS," then the
1 LB pad equals 1 kilogram and 0.1 LB pad equals
0.1 kilogram.

• The length of defrosting time varies according to
how solidly the food is frozen.
• The shape of the package affects how quickly food
will defrost. Shallow packages will defrost more
quickly than a deep block.
• As food begins to defrost, separate the pieces.
Separated pieces defrost more evenly.
• Use small pieces of aluminum foil to shield parts
of food such as chicken wings, leg tips, fish tails, or
areas that start to get warm. Make sure the foil does
not touch the sides, top, or bottom of the oven. The
foil can damage the oven lining.
• For better results, let food stand after defrosting.
(For more information on standing time, see
"Microwave cooking tips".)
• Turn food over during defrosting or standing time.
Break apart and remove food as required.

MICROWAVE
Oven
To make
maintain
sure your microwave
oven looks good and works well for a long time,
it properly.
For proper care, please follow these instructions
carefully.
Your microwave oven has a stainless steel interior.
Unlike painted steel interiors found in most other
microwave ovens, the surface will not chip, rust, or
corrode. Over time, stains can occur on the stainless
steel surface as the result of food particles splattering
during cooking. This is normal.
Do not use metal scouring pads on inside of oven
cavity. They will scratch the surface.
For interior surfaces: Wash often with warm, sudsy
water and a sponge or soft cloth. Use only mild, nonabrasive soaps or a mild detergent. Be sure to keep
the areas clean where the door and oven frame
touch when closed. Wipe well with clean water. Over
time, stains can occur on the surfaces as the result of
food particles spattering during cooking. This is
normal.
For stubborn soil, boil a cup (250 mL) of water in the
oven for 2 or 3 minutes. Steam will soften the soil. To
get rid of odors inside the oven, boil a cup (250 mL)
of water with lemon juice or vinegar.
For exterior surfaces and control paneh Use a
soft cloth with spray glass cleaner. Apply the spray
glass cleaner to the soft cloth; do not spray directly
on the oven.
you
should
NOTE: Abrasive cleansers, steel-wool pads,
gritty wash cloths, some paper towels, etc., can
damage the control panel and the interior and exterior
oven surfaces.
For stainless steel surfaces:
• Do not use steel wool or soap-filled scouring pad.
Rub in the direction of the grain line to avoid marring the surface.
Always wipe dry to avoid water marks.
• if commercial cleaners are used, follow label
directions. If product contains chlorine (bleach),
wipe thoroughly with clean water and dry with a soft
lint free cloth. Chlorine is a corrosive substance.
To clean turntable and turntable support, wash in
mild, sudsy water; for heavily soiled areas use a mild
cleanser and scouring sponge. The turntable and
turntable support are dishwasher-safe.
To clean the Convection Rack, wash in mild sudsy
water; for heavily soiled areas use a mild cleanser and
scouring sponge. Rack is dishwasher-safe. Remove
rack from oven when it is not being used for cooking.

QUESTIONS
ANSWERS
Can I operate my microwave oven without the
turntable or turn the turntable over to hold a
large dish?
No. If you remove or turn over the turntable, you
will get poor cooking results. Dishes used in
your oven must fit on the turntable.
Can I use a rack in my microwave oven so that I
may reheat or cook on two levels at a time?
You can use a rack only if the rack is supplied
with your microwave oven. If you use a rack not
supplied with the microwave oven, you can get
poor cooking performance and/or arcing.
Can I use either metal or aluminum pans in my
microwave oven?
You can use aluminum foil for shielding (use small,
flat pieces), small skewers, and shallow foil trays
(if tray is not taller than _ in. [1.9 cm] deep and half
filled with food to absorb microwave energy).
Never allow metal to touch walls or door. (See
"Oven Utensils Guide".)
Is it normal for the turntable to turn in
either direction?
Yes. The turntable rotates clockwise or counterclockwise, depending on the rotation of the
motor when the cooking cycle begins.
Sometimes the door of my microwave oven
appears wavy. Is this normal?
This appearance is normal and does not affect the
operation of your oven.
What are the humming noises that I hear when my
microwave oven is operating?
You may hear the sound of the transformer when
the magnetron tube cycles on.
Why does the dish become hot when I microwave
food in it? I thought that this should not happen,
As the food becomes hot it will conduct the heat
to the dish. Be prepared to use hot pads to
remove food after cooking.
What does "standing time" mean?
"Standing time" means that food should be
removed from the oven and covered for additional
time to allow it to finish cooking. This frees the
oven for other cooking.
Why does steam come out of the air exhaust vents?
Steam is normally produced during cooking. The
microwave oven has been designed to vent this
steam out the vents.
Can I pop popcorn in my microwave oven?
How do I get the best results?
Yes. Pop packaged microwave popcorn
following manufacturer's guidelines or use the
preset SENSOR POPCORN pad. Do not use
regular paper bags. Use the "listening test" by
stopping the oven as soon as the popping slows
to a "pop" every 1 or 2 seconds. Do not repop
unpopped kernels. Do not pop popcorn in
glass cookware.
