ABOUT YOUR OVEN
This Operation Manual is valuable: read it carefully
and always save it for reference.
Condensation is a normal part of microwave cooking.
Room humidity and the moisture in food will
influence the amount of moisture that condenses in
the oven. Generally, covered foods will not cause as
much condensation as uncovered ones. Vents on the
oven back must not be blocked.
A good microwave cookbook is a valuable asset.
Check it for microwave cooking principles,
techniques, hints and recipes.
NEVER use the oven without the turntable and
support nor turn the turntable over so that a large dish
could be placed in the oven. The turntable will turn
both clockwise and counterclockwise. See page 30
for complete instructions.
The oven is for food preparation only. It should not
be used to dry clothes or newspapers.
Your oven is rated 1100 watts by using the IEC Test
Procedure. In using recipes or package directions,
check food a minute or two before the minimum time
and add time accordingly.
ALWAYS have food in the oven when it is on to
absorb the microwave energy.
When using the oven at power levels below 100%,
you may hear the magnetron cycling on and off.
ABOUT FOOD
FOOD
DO
DON'T
Eggs, sausages,
nuts, seeds,
fruits &
vegetables
• Puncture egg yolks before cooking to
prevent “explosion”.
• Pierce skins of potatoes, apples, squash,
hot dogs and sausages so that steam escapes.
• Cook eggs in shells.
• Reheat whole eggs.
• Dry nuts or seeds in shells.
Popcorn
• Use specially bagged popcorn for the
microwave oven.
• Listen while popping corn for the popping to slow to 1 or 2 seconds or use
special Popcorn pad.
• Pop popcorn in regular brown bags or
glass bowls.
• Exceed maximum time on popcorn
package.
Baby food
• Transfer baby food to small dish and
heat carefully, stirring often. Check
temperature before serving.
• Put nipples on bottles after heating and
shake thoroughly. “Wrist” test before
feeding.
• Heat baby food in original jars.
• Heat disposable bottles.
• Heat bottles with nipples on.
General
• Cut baked goods with filling after heating to release steam and avoid burns.
• Stir liquids briskly before and after
heating to avoid “eruption”.
• Use deep bowl, when cooking liquids
or cereals, to prevent boilovers.
• Heat or cook in closed glass jars or air
tight containers.
• Can in the microwave as harmful bacteria may not be destroyed.
• Deep fat fry.
• Dry wood, gourds, herbs or wet papers.
• Operate the oven empty.

I N F O R M AT I O N Y O U N E E D T O K N O W
ABOUT UTENSILS AND COVERINGS
It is not necessary to buy all new cookware. Many
pieces already in your kitchen can be used successfully in your new microwave oven.
The following coverings are ideal:
• Paper towels are good for covering foods for
reheating and absorbing fat while cooking bacon.
• Wax paper can be used for cooking and reheating.
• Plastic wrap that is specially marked for microwave
use can be used for cooking and reheating. DO NOT
allow plastic wrap to touch food. Vent so steam
can escape.
• Lids that are microwave-safe are a good choice
because heat is kept near the food to hasten cooking.
• Oven cooking bags are good for large meats or foods
that need tenderizing. DO NOT use metal twist ties.
Remember to slit bag so steam can escape.
Use these utensils for safe microwave cooking and
reheating:
• glass ceramic (Pyroceram ® ), such as
Corningware®.
• heat-resistant glass (Pyrex®)
• microwave-safe plastics (some microwavesafe plastics are not suitable for cooking foods
with high fat and sugar content.)
• paper plates
• microwave-safe pottery, stoneware and
porcelain
• browning dish (Do not exceed recommended
preheating time. Follow manufacturer's
directions.)
How to use aluminum foil in your microwave oven:
• Small flat pieces of aluminum foil placed smoothly
on the food can be used to shield areas that are
either defrosting or cooking too quickly.
• Foil should not come closer than one inch to any
surface of the oven.
Should you have questions about utensils or
coverings, check a good microwave cookbook or
follow recipe suggestions.
These items can be used for short time reheating
of foods that have little fat or sugar in them:
• wood, straw, wicker
DO NOT USE
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
metal pans and bakeware
dishes with metallic trim
non-heat-resistant glass
non-microwave-safe plastics (margarine tubs)
recycled paper products
brown paper bags
food storage bags
metal twist-ties
ACCESSORIES There are many microwave
accessories available for purchase. Evaluate carefully
before you purchase so that they meet your needs. A
microwave-safe thermometer will assist you in
determining correct doneness and assure you that
foods have been cooked to safe temperatures. Dacor
is not responsible for any damage to the oven when
accessories are used.
Should you wish to check if a dish is safe for microwaving, place the empty dish in the oven and
microwave on 100% power for 30 seconds. A dish
which becomes very hot should not be used.
ABOUT CHILDREN AND THE MICROWAVE
Children below the age of 7 should use the microwave oven with a supervising person very near to
them. Between the ages of 7 and 12, the supervising
person should be in the same room.
The child must be able to reach the oven comfortably; if not, he/she should stand on a sturdy stool.
At no time should anyone be allowed to lean or swing
on the oven door.
Children should be taught all safety precautions: use
potholders, remove coverings carefully, pay special
attention to packages that crisp food because they may
be extra hot.
Don’t assume that because a child has mastered one
cooking skill he/she can cook everything.
Children need to learn that the microwave oven is
not a toy. See page 32 for Child Lock feature.

I N F O R M AT I O N Y O U N E E D T O K N O W
ABOUT MICROWAVE COOKING
• Arrange food carefully. Place thickest areas toward
outside of dish.
• Rearrange foods like meatballs halfway through
cooking both from top to bottom and from the center
of the dish to the outside.
• Watch cooking time. Cook for the shortest amount
of time indicated and add more as needed. Foods
severely overcooked can smoke or ignite.
• Add standing time. Remove food from oven and
stir, if possible. Cover for standing time which
allows the food to finish cooking without
overcooking.
• Cover foods while cooking. Check recipe or cookbook for suggestions: paper towels, wax paper,
microwave plastic wrap or a lid. Covers prevent
spattering and help foods to cook evenly.
• Check for doneness. Look for signs indicating that
cooking temperatures have been reached.
• Shield with small flat pieces of aluminum foil any
thin areas of meats or poultry to prevent overcooking before dense, thick areas are cooked thoroughly.
Doneness signs include:
- Food steams throughout, not just at edge.
- Center bottom of dish is very hot to the touch.
- Poultry thigh joints move easily.
- Meats and poultry show no pinkness.
- Fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.
• Stir foods from outside to center of dish once or
twice during cooking, if possible.
• Turn foods over once during microwaving to speed
cooking of such foods as chicken and hamburgers.
Large items like roasts must be turned over at
least once.
ABOUT SAFETY
• Always use potholders to prevent burns when
handling utensils that are in contact with hot food.
Enough heat from the food can transfer through
utensils to cause skin burns.
• Check foods to see that they are cooked to the
United States Department of Agriculture’s recommended temperatures:
TEMP
FOOD
160°F
... for fresh pork, ground meat,
boneless white poultry, fish,
seafood, egg dishes and
frozen prepared food.
165°F
• Avoid steam burns by directing steam away from
the face and hands. Slowly lift the farthest edge of
a dish’s covering and carefully open popcorn and
oven cooking bags away from the face.
• Stay near the oven while it’s in use and check cooking progress frequently so that there is no chance
of overcooking food.
... for leftover, ready-to-reheat
refrigerated, and deli and
carry-out “fresh” food.
170°F
... white meat of poultry.
180°F
... dark meat of poultry.
• NEVER use the cavity for storing cookbooks or
other items.
• Select, store and handle food carefully to preserve
its high quality and minimize the spread of
foodborne bacteria.
• Keep waveguide cover clean. Food residue can
cause arcing and/or fires.
To test for doneness, insert a meat thermometer in a
thick or dense area away from fat or bone. NEVER
leave the thermometer in food during cooking,
unless it is approved for microwave oven use.
• Use care when removing items from the oven so
that the utensil, your clothes or accessories do not
touch the safety door latches.

MULTIPLE SEQUENCE COOKING
The oven can be programmed for up to four automatic cooking sequences, switching from one power level
setting to another automatically. Sometimes cooking directions tell you to start on one power level and then
change to a different power level. Your oven can do this automatically.
• Suppose you want to cook roast beef for 5 minutes at 70% power and then continue to cook for 30 minutes at
50% power:
1 Enter cooking time, 5, 0, 0
by touching numbers.
Touch Power Level.
2 Touch 70%. You can omit
this step when you set 100%
power.
3 Touch Multiple Sequence.
4 Touch second cooking
time 3, 0, 0, 0. Touch
Power Level.
5 Touch 50%. Then press the
START pad.
6 The display will begin counting
down the total cooking time.
During the cooking, the power
level will appear in the display.

M A N U A L O P E R AT I O N
MANUAL DEFROST
If the food that you wish to defrost is not listed
on the AUTO DEFROST or SUPER DEFROST
CHARTS is above or below the limits in the
AMOUNT column on the AUTO DEFROST or
SUPER DEFROST CHARTS, you need to defrost
manually.
You can defrost any frozen food, either raw or
previously cooked, by using 30% power. Follow
the exact procedure found on page 15. Estimate
defrosting time, enter it. Then touch Power Level on
the Touch Screen and select 30%.
For either raw or previously cooked frozen food the
rule of thumb is approximately four minutes per
pound. For example, defrost four minutes for one
pound of frozen spaghetti sauce.
Always stop the oven periodically to remove or
separate the portions that are defrosted. If food is
not defrosted at the end of the estimated defrosting
time, program the oven in one minute increments on
30% power until totally defrosted.
When using plastic containers from the freezer,
defrost only long enough to remove from the plastic
in order to place in a microwave-safe dish.
SENSOR MODES
When the sensor detects the vapor emitted from
the food, remainder of cooking or reheating time
will appear. The door may be opened when
remaining cooking time appears on the display. At
this time, you may stir or season food, as desired.
7. If the sensor does not detect vapor properly when
cooking or reheating foods, error messages will be
displayed, and the oven will turn off.
8. Check food for correct temperature after cooking.
If additional time is needed, continue to cook
manually.
The Sensor is a semi-conductor device that detects
the vapor (moisture and humidity) emitted from the
food as it heats. The sensor adjusts the cooking times
and power level for various foods and quantities.
Using Sensor Settings
1. After oven is plugged in, wait two minutes before
using any Sensor setting.
2. Be sure the exterior of the cooking container and
the interior of the oven are dry. Wipe off any
moisture with a dry cloth or paper towel.
3. The oven works with foods at normal storage
temperature. For example, popcorn would be at
room temperature.
4. Any Sensor Cooking or Reheating selection can
be programmed with More or Less Time
Adjustment. See page 34.
5. More or less food than the quantity listed in the
chart should be cooked following the guidelines
in any microwave cookbook.
6. During the first part of Sensor Cooking or
Reheating, SENSING will appear on the display.
Do not open the oven door or press STOP/CLEAR
pad during this part of the cooking cycle. The
measurement of vapor will be interrupted. If this
occurs, an error message will appear. To continue
cooking, touch the STOP/CLEAR pad and cook
manually.
Covering Foods
Some foods work best when covered. Use the cover
recommended in the procedure for these foods.
1. Casserole lid.
2. Plastic wrap: Use plastic wrap recommended for
microwave cooking. Cover dish loosely; allow
approximately 1/2 inch to remain uncovered to
allow steam to escape. Plastic wrap should not
touch food.
3. Wax paper: Cover dish completely; fold excess
wrap under dish to secure. If dish is wider than
paper, overlap two pieces at least one inch to cover.
Be careful when removing any covering to allow
steam to escape away from you.

PROCEDURE
Place in dish or casserole slightly larger than amount to be
reheated. Flatten, if possible. Cover with lid, plastic wrap or wax
paper. Use covers such as plastic wrap or lids with larger quantities of more dense foods such as stews. After reheating, stir well,
if possible. Re-cover and allow to stand 2 to 3 minutes. Foods
should be very hot. If not, continue to heat with variable power
and time.
Ideal for reheating stirrable casseroles, such as macaroni and
cheese or stew. Cover with vented plastic wrap or wax paper.
Follow directions. At end, stir and allow to stand, covered, for 5
to 10 minutes.
Ideal for reheating non-stirrable casseroles, such as lasagna.
Cover with vented plastic wrap or wax paper. Follow directions.
At end, stir and allow to stand, covered, for 5 to 10 minutes.
Popcorn
1 pkg
Use only popcorn packaged for microwave oven use. Try
3.0 - 3.5 oz (Regular) several brands to decide which you like the best. Do not try to

USING THE RACK
For most cooking, the turntable should be on; however
the turntable can be turned off so that it does not rotate
when extra large dishes, such as the popular 13 x 9 x 2
glass utility casserole, are used. The casserole should
be placed on the turntable so that it is level.
The display indicates when the turntable is off.The
door can be opened for checking food and the
turntable will stay in the off position. After checking,
close door and touch START
All special features can only be used with the turntable
on. When the turntable is set in the off position, only
manual operation can be used except for the Reheat
function which can be used for both options.
When cooking large quantities of food which cannot
be stirred, it is best to use a lower power level such
as 40% or 50%. You may speed cooking for large
amounts by programming 5 to 10 minutes on 100%
power (HIGH) followed by the desired time on
lower power. See page 16 for how to program multiple
sequences. You may wish to reverse a large casserole
once during cooking; simply open door, reposition
casserole, close door and touch START.
The Rack allows several foods to be cooked or
reheated at one time. However, for the best cooking
and reheating, use the turntable on and the automatic
features.
When placing the Rack in the oven, be sure that it
sits down in all four of the Rack Holders. It may
be necessary to push down on the Rack to position
it correctly. It must NOT rest on the top of the
Rack Holders as arcing could occur.
When using the Rack, set time and power level
manually. Allow plenty of space around and
between the dishes. Pay close attention to the cooking/
reheating progress. Reposition the foods and reverse
them from rack to turntable at least once during any
cooking or reheating time. Using a lower power level
will assist in better cooking/reheating uniformity.
AVOID:
• Storing the Rack in the oven when not in use.
• Popping popcorn on the turntable with the Rack in
the oven.
• Using any browning dish on the Rack.
• Using special features with the Rack. Special
features are designed to be used with foods only
on the revolving turntable.
• Cooking directly on the Rack—use microwave-safe
cookware.
• Suppose you want to turn the turntable off.
Press Turntable On/Off. The turntable off icon
will appear on the top left of the display.
To turn the turntable on again, press Turntable
On/Off. The turntable off icon will disappear.

CLEANING AND CARE
DOOR
TURNTABLE / TURNTABLE
SUPPORT
Wipe the window on both sides with a damp cloth to
remove any spills or spatters. Metal parts will be
easier to maintain if wiped frequently with a damp
cloth. Avoid the use of harsh abrasives.
The turntable and turntable support can be removed
for easy cleaning. Wash them in mild, sudsy water;
for stubborn stains use a mild cleanser and scouring
sponge as described above. They are also dishwasherproof. Use upper rack of dishwasher. The turntable
motor shaft is not sealed, so excess water or spills
should be wiped up immediately.
EXTERIOR
The outside surface is painted. Clean the outside with
mild soap and water; rinse and dry with a soft cloth.
Do not use any type of household or abrasive
cleaner.
INTERIOR
Cleaning is easy because no heat is generated to the
interior surfaces; therefore, there is no baking and
setting of spills or spattering. To clean the interior
surfaces, wipe with a soft cloth and warm water. DO
NOT USE ABRASIVE OR HARSH CLEANERS
OR SCOURING PADS. For heavier soil, use baking
soda or a mild soap; rinse thoroughly with hot water.
NEVER SPRAY OVEN CLEANERS DIRECTLY
ONTO ANY PART OF THE OVEN.

1. Pull down slightly on the tab toward the front of
the oven and remove the filter. Repeat for the
other filter.
2. Soak the filters in a sink or dish pan filled with
hot water and detergent. DO NOT use ammonia or

and darken it.
3. Agitate and scrub with a brush to remove
embedded dirt.
4. Rinse thoroughly and shake dry.
5. Replace by fitting the filter back into the opening.
WAVEGUIDE COVER
Carefully wash any food particles from the waveguide
cover located on the right side in the oven cavity. Do
not remove the waveguide cover.

of 1 lemon and several whole cloves in a 2 cup glass
measuring cup. Boil for several minutes using 100%
power. Allow to set in oven until cool. Wipe interior
with a soft cloth.
CONTROL PANEL
Care should be taken in cleaning the control panel. If
the control panel becomes soiled, open the oven door
before cleaning. Wipe the panel with a cloth
dampened slightly with water only. Dry with a soft
cloth. Do not scrub or use any sort of chemical
cleaners. Close door and touch STOP/CLEAR.
