Safety Instructions
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
The built-in safety interlock switches prevent the
microwave oven from operating when the door is
open.
Do not tamper with them, or attempt to operate
the oven with the door open as open door
operation can result in exposure to microwave
energy.
Do not allow food spills or cleaner residue to
accumulate on door sealing surfaces. See the
Cleaning and Care section for cleaning
instructions.
Do not operate the oven if it is damaged until it
has been repaired by qualified service personnel.
It is particularly important that the oven door
closes properly and that there is no damage to
the: (1) door (warped), (2) hinges and latches
(broken or insecure), (3) door seals and sealing
surface.
Under no circumstances should you attempt to
repair the appliance yourself. Repairs carried out
by inexperienced persons may cause injury or
serious malfunctioning. Contact your local Service
Force Centre.
Do not remove the outer case, door or control
panel at any time. Doing so may cause exposure
to extremely high voltage.
Install or locate this oven only in accordance with
“INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS” found in this
manual.
Use the appliance for its intended use as
described in this manual. Do not use corrosive
chemicals in this appliance. This type of oven is
specifically designed to heat, cook, or defrost
food. It is not designed for industrial or laboratory
use neither for commercial use as this will
invalidate the guarantee.
Do not operate the oven empty. If food or water is
not present to absorb the microwave energy, the
magnetron tube can be damaged.
Close supervision is necessary when the oven is
used by children.
Do not store this appliance outdoors. Do not use
this product near water.
Do not attempt to dry clothing or newspapers in
the microwave oven. These items can ignite.
Do not use the cavity for storage purposes. Do
not leave paper products, cooking utensils, or
food in the cavity when not in use.
Utensil safety
Most glass, glass ceramic and heat-resistant
glassware utensils are excellent for use in the
microwave oven. Although microwave energy will not
heat most glass and ceramic items, these utensils
can become hot as heat transfers from the food to
the container. The use of oven gloves to remove
dishes is recommended.
Safety instructions when cooking with grill
or combination modes.
1. The glass viewing window may break if water is
spilled on it during grilling or convection cooking.
2. Be sure to use an oven glove when loading and
unloading the oven. Containers get very hot in the
oven, so be careful not to burn yourself. The turntable and metal rack also get very hot so be sure to
use an oven glove when handling them.
3. Do not touch the inner or outer viewing window with
metal components when loading or unloading the
oven. The inside of the door and oven get very hot
so take care when attending food in the oven.
4. Do not put the turntable or containers in cold water
or try to cool them quickly after use.
5. Do not place items on top of the cabinet. The top of
the cabinet gets very hot, so anything placed on it
may be damaged by the heat.

•
•
•
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 air vents
located on the top, rear, side and bottom of the
oven.

Do not use this oven for commercial
purposes. This oven is made for domestic
use only.

Testing suitability of cookware
•
•
•
•
•
•
Food safety
•
Place the cookware in the microwave along with a
glass half full of water. Heat on 900 W (100%) for
one minute. If the cookware feels hot, you should
not use it. If it is just slightly warm, you can use it
for reheating but not for cooking. If the dish is
room temperature, it is suitable for microwave
cooking.
Paper napkins, wax paper, paper towels, plates,
cups, cartons, freezer wrap and cardboard are
great convenience utensils. Always be sure
containers are filled with food to absorb energy
and thus avoid the possibility of overheating.
Many plastic dishes, cups, freezer containers and
plastic wraps may be used in the microwave
oven. Follow manufacturer’s instructions when
using plastics in the oven. Avoid using plastic
utensils with foods that have high fat or sugar
content since these foods reach high
temperatures and could melt some plastics.
Metal utensils and utensils with metallic trim
should not be used in the microwave oven, unless
specifically recommended for microwave use.
Containers with restricted openings, such as
bottles, should not be used for microwave
cooking.
Use caution when removing a lid or cover from a
dish to avoid steam burns.
WARNING :
English
•
•
•
Do not heat food in a can in the microwave oven.
Always remove the food to a suitable container.
Deep fat frying should not be done in the
microwave oven, because the fat temperature
cannot be controlled, hazardous situations can
result.
Popcorn may be prepared in the microwave oven,
but only in special packages or utensils designed
specifically for this purpose. This cooking
operation should never be un-attended.
Pierce foods with non-porous skins or
membranes to prevent steam build-up and
bursting. Apples, potatoes, chicken livers, and
egg yolks are examples of items that should be
pierced.
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:
1. Avoid using straight-sided containers with narrow
necks.
2. Do not overheat.
3. Stir the liquid before placing the container in the
oven and again halfway through the heating time.
4. After heating, allow to stand in the oven for a
short time, stirring again before carefully removing
the container.
Do not leave oven unattended, and
look at it from time to time when
heating or cooking food in plastic,
paper or other combustible
containers. If smoke is observed,
keep door closed, switch the oven
off or disconnect oven until smoke
stops.
•
Some products such as whole eggs and sealed
containers – for example, closed glass jars – may
explode and should not be heated in this oven.
Occasionally, poached eggs may explode during
cooking. Always pierce the yolk, then cover and
allow the standing time of one minute before
removing cover.
NOTE:
• 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 air vents
located on the top, rear, side and bottom of the
oven.
Do not use this oven for commercial purposes.
This oven is made for domestic use only.

Notes / Suggestions
This category is ideal for
cooking/reheating uncooked
frozen sandwiches (rolls,
baguettes, etc.) available on the
market. It is also perfect for
reheating slices of pizza (max
200g) that are sold pre-cooked
(e.g. speedy pizza) and slices of
“focaccia” bread (150-180g).
This category is ideal for cooking
raw pastry mini pizzas
(max 10-12 pieces). Depending
on the type of pizza, they may be
cooked either in this category or
in the “ Sn03 “category. In
addition, it is also ideal for
reheating chicken pieces and for
cooking hamburgers
(max 2, that is, 150g).
This category is ideal for cooking
hamburgers
(max 3-4, that is, 300g) and for
cooking savouries (max 280g),
all types of potatoes (croquettes,
“patate duchessa”, etc.) and
some types of mini pizzas
(max 10-12).
This category is ideal for heating
frozen pre-cooked pies
(courgette pies, “stracchino” pie,
etc.) available on the market. It is
also ideal for raw frozen
croissants (min. 3-4) and for
cooking savouries (min. 300g).
This category is ideal for cooking
raw frozen pies
(“torta pasqualina”, artichoke pie,
ricotta and spinach pies, etc.)
available on the market (that is,
to be cooked rather than just
reheated).
25
Possible Actions
Do not cook more than 300g
of bread (4-5 pieces) at a time.
To avoid burning your mouth,
break the bread in half after
removing it from the oven, so
as to release the heat from
inside the soft part.
Keep the pizzas an equal
distance apart, because during
cooking they rise and risk, if
overlapping, not being cooked
evenly. Hamburgers should be
turned over halfway through
cooking.
The hamburgers should be
turned over halfway through
cooking. Keep the savouries
and the pizzas an equal
distance apart to prevent them
from sticking together.
In the case of croissants or
savouries, keep them an equal
distance apart, as during
cooking they swell and risk
sticking together (and thus not
cooking properly).
Remove the pie from the
packaging and place it directly
on the pre-heated grill plate.
Recommended for pies
weighing around 700g.

Microwave Tips
Always keep the oven clean – avoid spill-overs
and do not forget to clean under the glass tray
and the inside of the door.
Preferably use round or oval casseroles with a lid
when cooking in your microwave oven.
Do not use metal or metal decorated casseroles.
Certain plastic materials can melt and be warped
by hot food.
Cover the food when cooking. Use a glass lid, a
plate or grease proof paper.
Pastry, bread and the like can be defrosted
directly in a bread basket or on a paper towel.
If frozen food is heated in its packaging, the
packaging should be opened. Packaging
containing metal or metal decoration must not be
used unless specifically recommended for use in
the microwave. Remove metal clips and wire ties.
Smaller pieces of aluminium foil can be used to
cover parts that easily over cook such as chicken
legs.
Food with peel or skin should be pierced with a
fork – e.g. potatoes and sausages. Do not boil
eggs in the microwave oven as they can explode.
Put large, thick pieces close to the edge of the
casserole and try to cut the food in to even sized
pieces. Always place the food in the centre of the
oven.
The food will be evenly cooked if you stir or turn it
a few times.
Always set a shorter cooking time than indicated
in your recipe to avoid over cooking. The larger
the amount of food the longer it takes.
Use little or no water for vegetables.
Use less salt and spices than for ‘normal’ cooking.
Season afterwards.
Allow a few minutes ‘standing’ time after the oven
has switched off to ensure complete and even
cooking results.
Always ensure food is piping hot throughout
before serving.
Use pot holders or gloves when taking dishes and
food from the oven.

Care and cleaning
The oven must always be clean. Residue of food from spillovers or spatters will attract microwave energy
causing it to burn on. This could reduce the efficiency of the oven and may cause bad odours. Do not attempt
to tamper with or make any adjustments or repairs to any part of the oven. Repairs should only be done by a
qualified service technician.
Be sure the oven is disconnected from the electricity supply before cleaning.
Cleaning the accessories (turntable and support)
Clean them with mild detergent after removing them from the cavity. The turntable support should be carefully
handled.
CAUTION: The inside of the oven and turntable get very hot, so do not touch them immediately after use.
Cleaning the interior
Always keep the inside of the oven clean. Wipe up spill-overs and food spatters immediately. Deposits that are
allowed to remain on the oven walls, door seal and door surface will absorb microwave energy, reduce the
efficiency of the oven, and possibly damage the oven interior. Use mild, liquid detergent, warm water and a
soft, clean cloth to remove deposits.
NEVER USE ABRASIVE CLEANERS, COMMERCIAL OVEN CLEANERS OR STEEL WOOL PADS ON
ANY PART OF THE MICROWAVE OVEN.
To loosen difficult deposits, boil a cup of water in the microwave oven for 2 or 3 minutes.
NEVER USE A KNIFE OR ANY UTENSIL TO REMOVE DEPOSITS FROM OVEN SURFACES.
To remove odours from the oven interior, boil a cup of water plus 2 tablespoons of lemon juice for 5 minutes.
Cleaning the Grill
The element may be stained with spattered fat or oil while the oven is in use. Wait until the cavity cools down
and wipe off the spattered oil before next using of the oven. Stains grill may cause unpleasant odours and
smoke.
The turntable motor is sealed. Nevertheless, be careful to avoid the water pene-trating under the turntable
spindle (D) when the bottom of the oven is being cleaned.
To make the cleaning of the inside of the oven easier, the upper heating element can be lowered by turning
the ceramic hook.
Cleaning the exterior
Open the oven door when cleaning the control panel. This will prevent the oven from being turned on
accidentally. You should clean outside surfaces of the oven with mild liquid detergent and water followed by a
wiping with clear water to remove any excess detergent. Dry with a soft cloth.
Spray-on window cleaners or all purpose spray-on kitchen cleaners can also be used. Never use abrasive
cleaners, scouring pads or harsh chemicals on outside surfaces of your oven. To prevent damage to the
working parts, do not allow water to seep into ventilation openings.
