MICROWAVE SAFETY
WARNING!
Never leave the oven unwatched,
especially when using paper,
plastic or other combustible
materials. These materials can
char and may fire. FIRE RISK!
WARNING!
If you see smoke or fire, keep the
door closed in order to smother
the flames. Switch off the oven
and take the plug out of the
socket or cut off the oven power
supply.
WARNING!
Do not heat pure alcohol or
alcoholic drinks in the microwave.
FIRE RISK!
WARNING!
Do not heat liquids or other foods
in closed containers since these
may explode readily.
WARNING!
This appliance is not intended for
use by persons (including
children) with reduced physical,
sensory or mental capabilities, or
lack of experience and
knowledge, unless they have
been given supervision or
instruction concerning use of the
appliance by a person
responsible for their safety.
Children should be supervised to
ensure that they do not play with
the appliance.
WARNING!
If the oven has a combined
function mode (microwave with
other means of heating), children
should not be allowed to use the
oven without adult supervision on
account of the high temperatures
generated.
WARNING!
The oven cannot be used if:
The door is not closed correctly;
The door hinges are damaged;
The surfaces of the contact between
the door and the oven front are
damaged;
The door window glass is damaged;
There is frequent electrical arcing
inside the oven even though there is
no metal object inside.
The oven can only be used again after
it has been repaired by a Technical
Assistance Service technician.
BEWARE!
Never heat baby foods or drinks in
bottles or jars with the teats or lids on
them. After heating the food mix or
shake well so that the heat is spread
evenly. Check the food temperature
before feeding this to the child.
DANGER OF BURNING!
To avoid food overheating or burning it
is very important not to select long
time periods or power levels that are
too high when heating small quantities
of food. For example, a bread roll can
burn after 3 minutes if the power
selected is too high.
For toasting, use just the grilling
function and watch the oven all the
time. It you use a combined function to
toast bread it will catch fire in a very
short time.
Make sure you never catch the power
cables of other electrical appliances in
the hot door or the oven. The cable
insulation may melt. Danger of shortcircuiting!
TAKE CARE WHEN HEATING
LIQUIDS!
When liquids (water, coffee, tea, milk,
etc.) are nearly at boiling point inside
the oven and are taken out suddenly,
they may spurt out of their containers.
DANGER OF INJURIES AND BURNS!
To avoid that type of situation when
heating liquids, put a teaspoon or
glass rod inside the container.
The spoon cannot
come in contact
with the cavity
walls - minimum
distance 3 cm.
ENGLISH 5
This oven is exclusively for domestic
use!
Use the oven only for preparing meals.
Avoid damaging the oven or other
dangerous situations by following
these instructions:
Do not switch on the oven without
the turntable support, the turntable
ring and the respective plate being in
place.
Never switch on the microwave when
it is empty. If there is no food inside
there may be an electrical
overcharge and the oven could be
damaged. RISK OF DAMAGE!
For carrying out oven programming
tests put a glass of water inside the
oven. The water will absorb the
microwaves and the oven will not be
damaged.
Do not cover or obstruct the
ventilation openings.
Use only dishes suitable for
microwaves. Before using dishes
and containers in the microwave,
check that these are suitable (see
the section on types of dishes).
Never remove the mica cover on the
ceiling of the oven interior! This
cover stops fat and pieces of food
damaging the microwave generator.
Do not keep any inflammable object
inside the oven as it may burn if the
oven is switched on.
Do not use the oven as a pantry.
Eggs with their shells and whole
boiled eggs must not be heated in
microwave ovens because they may
explode.
Do not use the oven for frying as it is
impossible to control the temperature
of oil heated by microwaves.
To avoid being burnt, always use
oven gloves for handling dishes and
containers and touching the oven.
Do not lean or sit on the open oven
door. This may damage the oven,
especially in the hinge zone. The
door can bear a maximum weight of
8 kg.
The turntable and the grills can bear
a maximum load of 8 kg. To avoid
damaging the oven, do not exceed
this load.
WARNING!
CLEANING:
Your microwave oven must be cleaned
regularly. All food remains must be
removed (see section on Oven
Cleaning). If the microwave oven is not
kept clean its surface may deteriorate
and this may shorten the oven’s
working life and could even result in a
dangerous situation.
The door contact surfaces (the front of
the cavity and the inside part of the
doors) must be kept very clean in
order to ensure the oven functions
correctly.
Please follow the instructions
regarding cleaning in the section
“Oven Cleaning and Maintenance”.
WARNING!
REPAIRS:
The outer protection of the oven must
not be removed. It is dangerous for
anyone not authorised by the
manufacturer to carry out any kind of
repair or maintenance work.
If the power cable is damaged it
should be substituted by the
manufacturer, authorised agents or
technicians qualified for this task in
order to avoid dangerous situations.
Furthermore, special tools are required
for this task.Repair and maintenance
work, especially of current carrying
parts, can only be carried out by
technicians authorised by the
manufacturer.

THE ADVANTAGES OF MICROWAVES
In conventional ovens, heat radiated
by electrical elements or gas burners
slowly penetrates the food from
outside to inside. On account of this
there is a major amount of energy is
wasted heating the air, the oven
components and the food containers.
In a microwave oven, heat is
generated by the food itself and the
heat travels from inside to outside. No
heat is lost to the air, the walls of the
oven cavity or the dishes and
containers (if these are suitable for use
in microwave oven), in other words,
only the food is heated.
Microwave ovens have the following
advantages:
Shorter cooking times; in general
these are up to 3/4 less than the time
required for conventional cooking.
Ultra-fast food defrosting thus
reduces the danger of bacterial
development.
Energy savings.
Conservation of the nutritional value
of foods due to the shorter cooking
times.
Easy to clean.
How a microwave oven works?
In a microwave oven there is a high
tension valve called a magnetron
which converts electrical energy into
microwave energy. These
electromagnetic waves are channelled
to the interior of the oven through a
wave guide and distributed by a
metallic spreader or through a
turntable.
Inside the oven the microwaves
propagate in all directions and are
reflected by the metal walls, uniformly
penetrating the food.
Why food heats up
Most foods contain water and water
molecules vibrate when subjected to
microwaves.
The friction between molecules
produces heat which raises the
temperature of the food, defrosting it,
cooking it or keeping it hot.
Since the heat arises inside the food:
This can be cooked with little or no
liquid or fats/oils;
Defrosting, heating or cooking in a
microwave oven is quicker than in a
conventional oven;
The vitamins, minerals and
nutritional substances in the food are
conserved;
The natural colour and aroma of the
food are unchanged.
Microwaves pass through china, glass,
cardboard or plastic but do not go
through metal. For this reason, metal
containers or ones with metal parts
must not be used in a microwave
oven.
Microwaves are reflected by metal...
... but go through glass and china...
... and are absorbed by foods.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR DEFROSTING
1. When defrosting, use only dishes
that are appropriate for microwaves
(china, glass, suitable plastic).
2. The defrost function by weight and
the tables refer to the defrosting of
raw food.
3. The defrosting time depends on the
quantity and thickness of the food.
When freezing food keep the
defrosting process in mind.
Distribute the food evenly in the
container.
4. Distribute the food as best as
possible inside the oven. The
thickest parts of fish or chicken
drumsticks should be turned
towards the outside. You can
protect the most delicate parts of
food with pieces of aluminium foil.
ENGLISH 21
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
Important:
The aluminium foil must not come
into contact with the oven cavity
interior as this can cause electrical
arcing.
Thick portions of food should be
turned several times.
Distribute the frozen food as evenly
as possible since narrow and thin
portions defrost more quickly than
the thicker and broader parts.
Fat-rich foods such as butter,
cream cheese and cream should
not be completely defrosted. If they
are kept at room temperature they
will be ready to be served in a few
minutes. With ultra-frozen cream, if
you find small pieces of ice in it,
you should mix these in before
serving.
Place poultry on an upturned plate
so that the meat juices can run off
more easily.
Bread should be wrapped in a
napkin so that it does not become
too dry.
10. Turn the food whenever the oven
lets out a beep and the display
flashes the word:
.
11. Remove frozen food from its
wrapping and do not forget to take
off any metal twist-tags. For
containers that are used to keep
frozen food in the freezer and
which can also be used for heating
and cooking, all you need to do is
take off the lid. For all other cases
you should put the food into
containers that are suitable for
microwave use.
12. The liquid resulting from defrosting,
principally that from poultry, should
be discarded. In no event should
such liquids be allowed to come
into contact with other foods.
13. Do not forget that by using the
defrosting function you need to
allow for standing time until the
food is completely defrosted.
COOKING WITH THE MICROWAVE OVEN
WARNING!
Read the section “Microwave Safety”
before cooking with your microwave.
Follow these recommendations when
cooking with your microwave:
1. Before heating or cooking foods
with peel or skin (e.g. apples,
tomatoes, potatoes, sausages)
prick them so that they do not
burst. Cut the food up before
starting to prepare it.
2. Before using a container or dish
make sure that it is suitable for
microwave use (see the section on
types of ovenware).
3. When cooking food with very little
moisture (e.g. defrosting bread,
making popcorn, etc.) evaporation
is very quick. The oven then works
as if it was empty and the food may
burn. The oven and the container
may be damaged in such a
situation. You should therefore set
just the cooking time necessary
and you must keep a close eye on
the cooking process.
4. It is not possible to heat large
quantities of oil (frying) in the
microwave.
5. Remove pre-cooked food from the
containers they come in since
these are not always heat resistant.
Follow the food manufacturer’s
instructions.
6. If you have several containers,
such as cups, for example, set
them out uniformly on the turntable
plate.
22 ENGLISH
7. Do not close plastic bags with
metal clips. Use plastic clips
instead. Prick the bags several
times so that the steam can escape
easily.
8. When heating or cooking foods,
check that they reach at least a
temperature of 70°C.
9. During cooking, steam may form
on the oven door window and may
start to drip. This situation is
normal and may be more
noticeable if the room temperature
is low. The oven’s safe working is
not affected by this. After you have
finished cooking, clean up the
water coming from the
condensation.
10. When heating liquids, use
containers with a wide opening, so
that the steam can evaporate
easily.
11. Prepare the foods as per the
instructions and keep in mind the
cooking times and power levels
indicated in the tables.
12. Keep in mind that the figures given
are only indicative and can vary
depending on the initial state,
temperature, moisture and type of
food. It is advisable to adjust the
times and power levels to each
situation.
13. Depending on the exact
characteristics of the food you may
need to increase or shorten the
cooking times or increase or
decrease the power levels.
COOKING WITH
MICROWAVES...
The greater the amount of food, the
longer the cooking time. Keep in mind
that:
Double the quantity » double the
time.
Half the quantity » half the time.
The lower the temperature, the
longer the cooking time.
Foods containing a lot of liquid heat
up more quickly.
Cooking will be more uniform if the
food is evenly distributed on the
turntable. If you put dense foods on
the outside part of the plate and less
dense ones on the centre of the
plate, you can heat up different types
of food simultaneously.
You can open the oven door at any
time. When you do this the oven
switches off automatically. The
microwave will only start working
again when you close the door and
press the start key.
Foods that are covered require less
cooking time and retain their
characteristics better.The lids used
must let microwaves pass through
and have small holes that allow
steam to escape.

COOKING WITH THE GRILL
For good results with the grill, use the
racksupplied with the oven.
Fit the rackin such a way that it doesn’t
come into contact with the metal
surfaces of the oven cavity since if it
does there is a danger of electric
arcing which may damage the oven.
IMPORTANT POINTS:
1. When the microwave grill is used
for the first time there will be some
smoke and a smell coming from
the oils used during oven
manufacture.
2. The oven door window becomes
very hot when the grill is working.
Keep children away.
3. When the grill is operating, the
cavity walls and the rackbecome
very hot. You should use oven
gloves.
4. If the grill is used for extended
period of time it is normal to find
that the elements will switch
themselves off temporarily due to
the safety thermostat.
5. Important! When food is to be
grilled or cooked in containers you
must check that the container in
question is suitable for microwave
use. See the section on types of
ovenware!
6. When the grill is used it is possible
that some splashes of fat may go
onto the elements and be burnt.
This is a normal situation and does
not mean there is any kind of
operating fault.
7. After you have finished cooking,
clean the interior and the
accessories so that cooking
remains do not become encrusted.

Advice to roast - bake
Turn the pieces of meat halfway
through the cooking time. When the
roasted meat is ready you should let it
stand for 20 minutes in the oven with
this switched off and closed. This will
ensure the juices in the meat are well
distributed.
The roasting temperature and time
required depends on the type and

ADVICE ON CAKE BAKING
WARE
The most commonly used type of
baking ware is black metal tins. If you
are also going to use the microwave,
use glass, ceramic or plastic baking
ware. These must be able to withstand
temperatures up to 250ºC. If you use
these types of baking ware the cakes
are not browned as much.
ADVICE ON HOW TO BAKE
CAKES
Different amounts and types of pastry
require different temperatures and
baking times. Try low settings first of
all and then, if necessary, use higher
temperatures next time. A lower
temperature will result in more uniform
baking. Always put the cake tray in the
centre of the turntable.
BAKING SUGGESTIONS
How to check if the cake is properly
cooked
Start sticking a tooth pick in the
highest part of the cake 10 minutes
before the end of the baking time.
When no dough sticks to the tooth pick
the cake is ready.
If the cake is very dark on the outside
Next time choose a lower temperature
and let the cake bake for a longer time.

If the cake is very dry
Make small holes in the cake with a
tooth pick after baking has finished.
Then sprinkle the cake with some fruit
juice or alcoholic drink. Next time
increase the temperature by about 10º
and reduce the baking time.
If the cake does not come free when
turned
Let the cake cool down for 5 to 10
minutes after baking and it will come
out of the tin more easily. If the cake
still does not come free run a knife
carefully around the edges. Next time
grease the cake tin well.
ADVICE ON SAVING ENERGY
When you are making more than one
cake, it is advisable to bake them in
the oven one after the other when the
oven is still hot. This lets you reduce
the baking time for the second and
later cakes.
It is preferable to use dark coloured
baking ware - painted or enamelled
black – since such baking tins absorb
heat better.
When dealing with long baking times,
you can switch the oven off 10 minutes
before the end of the time and make
use of the residual heat to complete
the baking.
28 ENGLISH
WHAT KIND OF OVENWARE CAN BE USED?
MICROWAVE FUNCTION
For the microwave function, keep in
mind that microwaves are reflected by
metal surfaces. Glass, china, clay,
plastic, and paper let microwaves
pass.
For this reason, metal pans and dishes
or containers with metal parts or
decorations cannot be used in the
microwave. Glass ware and clay with
metallic decoration or content (e.g.
lead crystal) cannot be used in
microwave ovens.
The ideal materials for use in
microwave ovens are glass, refractory
china or clay, or heat resistant plastic.
Very thin, fragile glass or china should
only be used for short period of times
(e.g. heating).
Hot food transmits heat to the dishes
which can become very hot. You
should, therefore, always use an oven
glove!
How to test ovenware you want to
use?
Put the item you want to use in the
oven for 20 seconds at maximum
microwave power. After that time, if it
is cold and just slightly warm, it is
suitable to use. However, if it heats up
a lot or causes electric arcing it is not
suitable for microwave use.
WARNING!
If microwave is used, please
make sure there are no
inappropriate objects inside of the
oven.
GRILL AND HOT-AIR
FUNCTIONS
In the combined functions, the
ovenware used must be suitable for
use in both the microwave and the
grill.
COMBINED FUNCTIONS
In the combined functions, the
ovenware used must be suitable for
use in both the microwave and the
grill.
ALUMINIUM CONTAINERS
AND FOIL
Pre-cooked food in aluminium
containers or in aluminium foil can be
put in the microwave if the following
aspects are respected:
Keep in mind the manufacturer’s
recommendations written on the
packaging.
The aluminium containers cannot be
more than 3 cm high or come in
contact with the cavity walls (minimum
distance 3 cm). Any aluminium lid or
top must be removed.
Put the aluminium container directly on
top of the turntable plate. If you use
the grid iron, put the container on a
china plate. Never put the container
directly on the grid iron! The cooking
time is longer because the microwaves
only enter the food from the top. If you
have any doubts, it is best to use only
dishes suitable for microwave use.
Aluminium foil can be used to reflect
microwaves during the defrosting
process. Delicate food, such as poultry
or minced meat, can be protected from
excessive heat by covering the
respective extremities/edges.
Important: aluminium foil cannot come
into contact with the cavity walls since
this may cause electrical arcing.
LIDS
We recommend you use glass or
plastic lids or cling film since:
This will stop excessive evaporation
(mainly during very long cooking
times);
The cooking times are shorter;
The food does not become dry;
The aroma is preserved.
The lid should have holes or openings
so that no pressure develops. Plastic
bags must also be opened. Baby
feeding bottles or jars with baby food
and similar containers can only be

OVEN CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Cleaning is the only maintenance
normally required.
WARNING!
Your microwave oven should be
cleaned regularly, with all food
remains being removed. If the
microwave is not kept clean its
surfaces may deteriorate,
reducing the oven’s working life
and possibly resulting in a
dangerous situation.
WARNING!
Cleaning should be done with the
oven power switched off. Take
the plug out of the socket or
switch off the oven’s power
circuit.
Do not use aggressive or
abrasive cleaning products,
scourers that scratch surfaces or
sharp objects, since stains may
appear.
Do not use high pressure or
stream jet cleaning appliances.
FRONT SURFACE
Normally you just need to clean the
oven with a damp cloth. If it is very
dirty, add a few drops of dishwashing
liquid to the cleaning water.
Afterwards, wipe the oven with a dry
cloth.
Immediately remove lime, fat, starch or
egg white stains. Corrosion can occur
under these stains. Do not let any
water get inside the oven.
OVEN INTERIOR
After each time the oven is used, clean
the inside walls with a damp cloth
since this is the easiest way to remove
splashes or spots of food that may
have stuck to the inside.
To remove dirt that is harder to shift,
use a non-aggressive cleaning
product. Do not use oven sprays or
other aggressive or abrasive cleaning
products.
Always keep the door and the oven
front very clean to ensure that the door
opens and closes properly.
Make sure water does not enter the
microwave ventilation holes.
Regularly take out the turntable plate
and the respective support and clean
the cavity base, especially after any
liquid spillage.
Do not switch on the oven without the
turntable and the respective support
being in place.
If the oven cavity is very dirty, put a
glass of water on the turntable and
switch on the microwave oven for 2 or
3 minutes at maximum power. The
steam released will soften the dirt
which can then be cleaned easily
using a soft cloth.
Unpleasant odours (e.g. after cooking
fish) can be eliminated easily. Put a
few drops of lemon juice in a cup with
water. Put a spoonful of coffee in the
cup to avoid the water boiling over.
Heat the water for 2 to 3 minutes at
maximum microwave power.
OVEN CEILING
If the oven ceiling is dirty, the grill can
be lowered to make cleaning easier.
To avoid the danger of burning, wait
until the grill is cold before lowering it.
Proceed as follows:
1. Turn the grill support by 180º (1).
2. Lower the grill gently (2). Do not
use excessive force as this may
cause damage.
3. After cleaning the ceiling, put the
grill (2) back in its place, carrying
out the previous operation.
IMPORTANT NOTES:
The grill heatiXng element support (1)
may fall when it is rotated. If this
happens, insert the grill heating
element support (1) into the slot in the
ceiling of the cavity and rotate it 180º
to the grill heating element support (2)
position.
ENGLISH 31
The mica cover (3) located in the
ceiling must always be kept clean. Any
food remains that collect on the mica
cover can cause damage or provoke
sparks.Do not use abrasive cleaning
products or sharp objects.
To avoid any risk, do not remove the
mica cover.
The glass lamp cover (4) is located on
the oven ceiling and can be removed
easily for cleaning. For this you just
need to unscrew it and clean it with
water and dishwashing liquid.
ACCESSORIES
Clean the accessories after each use.
If they are very dirty, soak them first of
all and then use a brush and sponge.
The accessories can be washed in a
dish washing machine.
Make sure that the turntable plate and
the respective support are always
clean. Do not switch on the oven
unless the turntable and the respective
support are in place.
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF THE OVEN DOESN’T WORK?
WARNING!
Any type of repair must only be
done by a specialised technician.
Any repair done by a person not
authorised by the manufacturer is
dangerous.
You do not need to contact Technical
Assistance to resolve the following
questions:
The display is not showing! Check if:
The time indication has been
switched off (see section on Basic
Settings).
Nothing happens when I press the
keys! Check if:
The Safety Block is active (see
section on Basic Settings).
The oven does not work! Check if:
The plug is correctly fitted in the
socket.
The oven’s power is switched on.
The door is completely closed. The
door should close with an audible
click.
There are any foreign bodies
between the door and the cavity
front.
When the oven is operating I can
hear some strange noises! Check if:
There is any electrical arcing inside
the oven caused by foreign metallic
objects (see section on type of
ovenware).
The ovenware is touching the oven
walls.
There are any loose items of
cutlery or cooking tools inside the
oven.
The food doesn’t heat up or heats
very slowly! Check if:
You have inadvertently used metal
ovenware.
32 ENGLISH
ENGLS
You have selected the correct
operating times and power level.
The food you have put inside the
oven is a larger amount or colder
than you usually put in.
The food is too hot, dried out or
burnt! Check if:
you selected the correct operating
time and power level.
I hear some noises after the cooking
process is finished!
This is not a problem. The cooling
fan keeps on working for some
time. When the temperature has
dropped sufficiently, the fan will
switch itself off.
The oven switches on but the interior
light does not go on!
If all the functions work properly it
is probable that the lamp has
blown. You can keep on using the
oven.
SUBSTITUTION OF LIGHT
BULB
