Installation & wiring instructions
Important note :
The mains lead on this equipment is supplied with a moulded plug incorporating a fuse.
Safety instructions
The value of the fuse is indicated on the pin face of the plug and, if it requires replacing, a
fuse approved to BS1363 of the same rating must be used.
Never use the plug with the fuse cover omitted if the cover is detachable. If a replacement
fuse cover is required, it must be of the same colour as the pin face of the plug.
Replacement covers are available from your Dealer. If the fitted plug is not suitable for the
power points in your house or the cable is not long enough to reach a power point, you
should obtain a suitable safety approved extension lead or consult your Dealer for assistance.
However, if there is no alternative to cutting off the plug, remove the fuse and then safely
dispose of the plug. Do not connect the plug to a mains socket, as there is a risk of shock
hazard from the bared flexible cord.
Wiring instructions
WARNING THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED.
This appliance must be earthed. In the event of an electrical short circuit, earthing reduces
the risk of electric shock providing an escape wire for the electric current. The appliance is
equipped with a mains lead which includes an earth wire for connecting to the earth terminal
of your mains plug. The plug must be plugged into a socket that is properly installed and
earthed.
IMPORTANT: The wires in this mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
• Green and yellow : Earth
• Blue : Neutral
• Brown : Live
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this appliance may not correspond with the
coloured markings indentifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows.
Connect the green and yellow wire to the terminal in the plug marked with the letter E or the
earth symbol (
) or coloured green or green-and-yellow.
Connect the blue wire to the terminal marked with the letter N or coloured black.
IMPORTANT: Consult a qualified electrician or service technician if in doubt about any of
these instructions.
14 English MS28J5215AS_EU_DE68-04333Q-00_EN.indd 14
2015-03-13 �� 6:24:39
The manufacturer of this oven will not accept any liability for damage to persons or material
for non observance of these requirements.
There are no user-serviceable parts inside the oven and if the mains lead of this appliance
is damaged, it must only be replaced by qualified service personnel approved by the
manufacturer because special tools are required.
02
WARNING: Ensure that the plug and power
cord are not damaged before use. If you
have any reason to remove the moulded
plug from this appliance, immediately
remove the fuse and dispose of the plug.
Do not connect the plug to a mains socket
under any circumstances as there is a
danger of electric shock.

Cooking instructions on food packaging
Microwave Symbols
On the front of your oven there is a microwave oven symbol, as shown below.
This symbol has been introduced for your benefit when cooking or
reheating packaged food.
Packaged food is also, increasingly, using a microwave symbol
similar to the one below. When you see this
Symbol on food packaging, cooking instructions are based on either
the IEC Power Output Rating, or the Reheating Categories A, B, C, D
or E.
MS28J5215AS_EU_DE68-04333Q-00_EN.indd 15
English 15
2015-03-13 �� 6:24:39
Safety instructions
Cooking instructions
The IEC Power Output rating is an internationally standardised rating, so all microwave
manufacturers now use the same method of measuring power output.
If food packaging gives cooking instructions based on IEC Power ratings, set cooking times
according to the IEC Power of your oven.
Safety instructions
For example :
If the cooking instructions are based on a 650 W oven, then you will need to reduce some
cooking time for the MS28J5215** (1000 W).
Ready meals are now very convenient and popular. These are meals which are already
prepared and cooked by the food manufacturer, and then frozen, chilled or vacuum sealed for
long life.
Increasingly, heating times for such ready meals are being based on the Heating Categories
A, B, C, D and E.
On this instance, simply match the heating category of your oven to the instructions on the
food package, and set your timer accordingly.
For example :
If the heating instructions are 3 minutes on HIGH for a D category oven, then you will need
to set your timer for less than 3 minutes on HIGH for the MS28J5215** (E category).
IMPORTANT: Always remember that cooking instructions are intended only as a guide. If you
have followed the instructions and the food is still not piping hot throughout, simply return it
to the oven and cook it until it is.

How a microwave oven works
Microwaves are high-frequency electromagnetic waves; the energy released enables food to
be cooked or reheated without changing either the form or the colour.
You can use your microwave oven to:
•Defrost
•Reheat
•Cook
Cooking principle.
1.The microwaves generated by the
magnetron reflected at cavity and are
distributed uniformly as the food rotates
on the turntable. The food is thus cooked
evenly.
2.The microwaves are absorbed by the food
up to a depth of about 1 inch (2.5 cm).
Cooking then continues as the heat is
dissipated within the food.
3.Cooking times vary according to the
container used and the properties of the
food:
•Quantity and density
•Initial temperature (refrigerated or not)
IMPORTANT
Oven use
•Water content
As the centre of the food is cooked by heat
dissipation, cooking continues even when
you have taken the food out of the oven.
Standing times specified in recipes and in
this booklet must therefore be respected to
ensure:
•Even cooking of the food right to the
centre.
•The same temperature throughout the
food.

should be used in a microwave oven.
