GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance must be grounded. This oven is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with a grounding plug.
It must be plugged into a wall receptacle that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with the National
Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances. In the event of an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces risk of
electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric current.
WARNING – Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of electric shock.
Electrical Requirements
Check Installation Instructions for proper location for the power supply.
The electrical requirements are a 120 volt 60 Hz, AC only, 15 amp. or more protected
electrical supply. It is recommended that a separate circuit serving only the oven be
provided.
The oven is equipped with a 3-prong grounding plug. It must be plugged into a wall
receptacle that is properly installed and grounded. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES CUT OR REMOVE THE GROUNDING PIN FROM THE PLUG.
Notes: 1. If you have any questions about the grounding or electrical instructions, consult a qualified electrician or
service person.
2. Neither Sharp nor the dealer can accept any liability for damage to the oven or personal injury resulting
from failure to observe the correct electrical connection procedures.
Radio or TV Interference
Should there be any interference caused by the microwave oven to your radio or TV, check that the microwave
oven is on a different electrical circuit, relocate the radio or TV as far away from the oven as feasible or check
position and signal of receiving antenna.

I N F O R M AT I O N Y O U N E E D T O K N O W
ABOUT YOUR OVEN
When using the oven at power levels below 100%, you
may hear the magnetron cycling on and off. It is normal
for the exterior of the oven to be warm to the touch
when cooking or reheating.
This Operation Manual is valuable: read it carefully and
always save it for reference.
A good microwave cookbook is a valuable asset.
Check it for microwave cooking principles, techniques,
hints and recipes. See pages 21 and 22 for ordering
the Ultimate Accessory, the SHARP CAROUSEL
MICROWAVE COOKBOOK.
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. Ventilation openings
must not be blocked.
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 11 for complete
instructions.
The oven is for food preparation only. It should not be
used to dry clothes or newspapers.
Your oven is rated 1000 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.
ABOUT FOOD
DON’T
FOOD
DO
Eggs, sausages,
fruits &
vegetables
• Puncture egg yolks before cooking
to prevent “explosion”.
• Cook eggs in shells.
• Pierce skins of potatoes, apples,
squash, hot dogs and sausages so
that steam escapes.
• Dry nuts or seeds in shells.
Popcorn
• Use specially bagged popcorn for the
microwave oven.
• Pop popcorn in regular brown bags
or glass bowls.
• Listen while popping corn for the
popping to slow to 1 or 2 seconds or
use special POPCORN pad.
• Exceed maximum time on popcorn
package.
• Transfer baby food to small dish and
heat carefully, stirring often. Check
temperature before serving.
• Heat disposable bottles.
Baby food
• Put nipples on bottles after heating
and shake thoroughly. “Wrist” test
before feeding.
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.
5
• Reheat whole eggs.
• Heat bottles with nipples on.
• Heat baby food in original jars.
• 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.
INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW
ABOUT MICROWAVE COOKING
• Arrange food carefully. Place thickest areas towards
outside of dish.
• Rearrange foods such as 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. Food
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.
Doneness signs include:
• Shield with small flat pieces of aluminum foil any
thin areas of meat or poultry to prevent overcooking
before dense, thick areas are cooked thoroughly.
- Food steams throughout, not just at edge.
• Stir foods from outside to center of dish once or twice
during cooking, if possible.
- Poultry thigh joints move easily.
• 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.
- Fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.
- Center bottom of dish is very hot to the touch.
- Meat and poultry show no pinkness.
ABOUT SAFETY
• Check foods to see that they are cooked to
the United States Department of Agriculture's
recommended temperatures.
TEMP
160°F
165°F
• 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.
FOOD
• 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.
... for fresh pork, ground meat,
boneless white poultry, fish,
seafood, egg dishes and frozen
prepared food.
• 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 carryout “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 the 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.

INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW
ABOUT UTENSILS AND COVERINGS
The following coverings are ideal:
It is not necessary to buy all new cookware. Many
pieces already in your kitchen can be used successfully in your new microwave oven. Make sure the
utensil does not touch the interior walls during cooking.
• Paper towels are good for covering foods for reheating and absorbing fat while cooking bacon.
• Wax paper can be used for cooking and
reheating.
Use these utensils for safe microwave 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.
• glass ceramic (Pyroceram®), such as
Corningware®.
• heat-resistant glass (Pyrex®)
• Lids that are microwave-safe are a good choice
because heat is kept near the food to hasten
cooking.
• microwave-safe plastics
• paper plates
• microwave-safe pottery, stoneware and
porcelain
• 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.
• browning dish (Do not exceed recommended
preheating time. Follow manufacturer's
directions.)
How to use aluminum foil in your microwave
oven:
These items can be used for short time reheating of foods that have little fat or sugar in them:
• 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.
• wood, straw, wicker
DO NOT USE
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
• Foil should not come closer than one inch to any
surface of the oven.
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
Should you have questions about utensils or coverings,
check a good microwave cookbook or follow recipe
suggestions.
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. Sharp 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 HIGH 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.
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.
The child must be able to reach the oven comfortably;
if not, he/she should stand on a sturdy stool.
Don’t assume that because a child has mastered one
cooking skill he/she can cook everything.
At no time should anyone be allowed to lean or swing
on the oven door.
Children need to learn that the microwave oven is not
a toy. See page 18 for Child Lock feature.

glass utility casserole, are used. The casserole should
be placed on the turntable so that it is level.
USING THE RACK
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.

SPECIAL FEATURES
MANUAL DEFROST
example, defrost 4 minutes for 1 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 1 minute increments on
Power Level 3 until totally defrosted.
If the food that you wish to defrost is not listed on the
CompuDefrost Chart or is above or below the limits in
the “Amount” column on the CompuDefrost Chart, you
need to defrost manually.
You can defrost any frozen food, either raw or previously cooked, by using Power Level 3. Follow the
exact 3-step procedure found under Time Cooking
on page 11. Estimate defrosting time and press 3 for
30% when you select the power level.
For either raw or previously cooked frozen food the rule
of thumb is approximately 4 minutes per pound. For
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.

CLEANING AND CARE
Exterior
Turntable/Turntable Support
The outside surface is precoated steel and plastic. 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.
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 non-abrasive
scouring sponge. They are also dishwasher-proof.
Use upper rack of dishwasher. The turntable motor
shaft is not sealed, so excess water or spills should be
wiped up immediately.
Door
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 spray and other harsh cleaners as they may
stain, streak or dull the door surface.
Turntable
Turntable Support
Touch Control Panel
Grease Filters
Care should be taken in cleaning the touch 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.
Filters should be cleaned at least once a month. Never
operate the fan or oven without the filters in place.
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
other alkali; they will react with the filter material and
darken it.
Interior
Cleaning is easy because little 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. The rack can be cleaned
with hot soapy water, rinsed and dried.
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
The waveguide cover is located on the ceiling in the
oven cavity. It is made from mica so requires special
care. Keep the waveguide cover clean to assure good
oven performance. Carefully wipe with a damp cloth
any food spatters from the surface of the cover immediately after they occur. Built-up splashes may overheat and cause smoke or possibly catch fire. DO NOT
REMOVE THE WAVEGUIDE COVER.
Odor Removal
Grease filter
Occasionally, a cooking odor may remain in the oven.
To remove, combine 1 cup water, grated peel and juice
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.

1. Disconnect power to the oven at the circuit breaker
panel or by unplugging.
3. Remove old light bulb and replace only with equivalent watt bulb available from a Sharp Authorized
Servicer or parts distributor. Bulbs are also available at most hardware stores or lighting centers.
DO NOT USE BULB LARGER THAN 30 WATTS.
4. Replace the oven light cover by carefully pushing
into place. Replace the charcoal filter, if used. Push
the louver back into place and replace the louver
mounting screw.
2. Remove the louver mounting screw from the top
center of the louver and push down carefully on the
tab at each end of the louver to disengage it. (See
illustration.)
