Microwave oven is a Group 2 ISM
equipment in which radio frequency
energy is intentionally generated and used
in the form of electromagnetic radiation for
the treatment of material.
This oven is a Class B equipment suitable
for use in domestic establishments and in
establishments directly connected to a low
voltage power supply network which
supplies buildings used for domestic
purposes.
The microwave oven shall not be placed in
a cabinet unless it has been tested in a
cabinet.
It is quite normal for steam to be emitted
around the door, or for misting to occur on
the door, or even for water droplets to
appear below the door during the cooking
cycle. This is merely condensation from
the heat of the food and does not affect
the safety of your oven. The door is not
intended to seal the oven cavity
completely.
Do not force the turntable to rotate by
hand. This may cause malfunctioning.
Arcing in the oven during microwave
operation usually occurs from use of
metallic utensils. Continuous arcing,
however, can damage the unit. Stop the
programme and check the utensil.
Care should be taken not to obstruct any

Warning: When heating liquids, e.g. soups,
sauces and beverages in your microwave
oven, overheating the liquid beyond
boiling point can occur without evidence of
bubbling. This could result in a sudden
boil over of the hot liquid. To prevent this
possibility the following steps should be
taken:
Avoid using straight-sided containers with
narrow necks.
Do not overheat.
Stir the liquid before placing the container
in the oven and again halfway through the
heating time.
After heating, allow standing in the oven
for a short time, stirring again before
carefully removing the container.
