Safety
Important Grounding
Instructions
Use of Extension Cords
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the
risk of becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer
cord. Extension cords may be used if care is exercised
in their use. If a Extension cord is used:
1. The extension cord should be at least as great as
the electrical rating of the appliance.
2. The extension cord must be a grounding-type 3wire cord and it must be plugged into a 3-slot
outlet.
3. If you use an extension cord, the interior light may
flicker and the blower may vary when the
microwave oven is on. Cooking times may be
longer, too.
This appliance must be grounded. In the event of an
electrical short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of
electric shock by providing an escape wire for the
electrical current. This appliance is equipped with a
cord that includes a grounding wire and a grounding
plug. The plug must be plugged into an outlet that is
properly installed and grounded. Plug the three-prong
power cord into a properly grounded outlet of standard
115-120 voltage, 60 Hz. Your oven should be the only
appliance on this circuit.
WARNING
Improper use of the grounding plug can result in
a risk of electric shock. Consult a qualified
electrician or servicer if you do not understand
the grounding instructions or if you are not sure
if the appliance is properly grounded.
WARNING
Do not cut or remove the third (ground) prong
from the power cord under any circumstances.

Cleaning & Care
The Variable Cooking Control allows you to select the amount
of microwave energy and the rate of cooking/defrosting.
There are 5 preset power levels.
1. Do not attempt to tamper with or make any adjustments or
repairs to the door control panel, safety interlock
switches, or any other part of the oven. Repairs should
only be done by a qualified service person.
2. Keep the inside of the oven clean. Food particles or spilled
liquids stick to oven walls and in-between seal and door
surfaces. This material will absorb microwaves and
reduce the efficiency of the oven.
Wipe up all spills with a damp cloth. Mild detergent may
be used if the oven gets very dirty. Do not use harsh
detergents or abrasives.

TIP: To help loosen baked on food particles or spilled
liquids, heat 2 cups of water in a 4-cup measuring glass at
HIGH power for 5 minutes or until boiling. Let stand in oven
1 to 2 minutes. To keep the oven fresh smelling, add the
juice of one lemon to the water before placing in oven.
It is occasionally necessary to remove the glass tray for
cleaning of the tray or oven. To prevent breakage, do not
place tray into water just after cooking. The tray is heavy
and can be broken if dropped. Wash it carefully in warm,
sudsy water or in dishwasher.
The outside surface of the oven should be cleaned
occasionally with soap and a damp cloth, rinsed, and
dried with a soft cloth. To prevent damage to the operating
parts inside the oven, water should not be allowed to seep
into the ventilation openings.
The door window should be washed with very mild soap
and water. Be sure to use a soft cloth to avoid scratching.
If steam accumulates inside or around the outside of the
oven door, wipe with a soft cloth to remove. This condition
may occur when oven is operated during periods of high
humidity and in no way indicates microwave leakage.
Immediately wipe off anything spilled in the oven to avoid
the possibility of staining.
Do not cook directly (use proper cooking utensil) on the
glass tray unless indicated in the cooking guide.
Never operate the oven without food or water in it as this
may result in damage to the magnetron tube or energyabsorbing glass tray. A cup of water left in the oven when
it is not in use will safely absorb this energy if the oven is
accidentally turned on.
Cooking Instructions
Cooking Utensils
Testing Utensils
Recommended Use
If you are not sure whether a dish is microwave-safe or not,
you can perform this test:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Glass and glass-ceramic bowls and dishes — Use for
heating or cooking.
Microwave browning dish — Use to brown the exterior of
small items such as steaks, chops, or pancakes. Follow
the directions provided with your browning dish.
Microwavable plastic wrap — Use to retain steam. Leave
a small opening for some steam to escape and avoid
placing it directly on the food.
Wax paper — Use as a cover to prevent spattering.
Paper towels and napkins — Use for short-term heating
and covering; they absorb excess moisture and prevent
spattering. Do not use recycled paper towels, which may
contain metal and can catch fire.
Paper plates and cups — Use for short-term heating at
low temperatures. Do not use recycled paper, which may
contain metal and can catch fire.
Thermometers — Use only those labeled “Microwave
Safe” and follow all directions. Check the food in several
places. Conventional thermometers may be used once the
food has been removed from the oven.
1
2
•
•
Ceramic, porcelain, and stoneware — Use these if they
are labeled “Microwave Safe.” If they are not labeled, test
them to make sure they can be used safely. Never use
dishes with metallic trim.
Plastic — Use only if labeled “Microwave Safe.” Other
plastics can melt.
Straw, wicker, and wood — Use only for short-term
heating, as they can be flammable.
Not Recommended
•
•
•
•
•
Turn the Timer knob past 2 minute mark, then return it to
the 1 minute mark. Turn the Power Control knob to the
HIGH position. The unit will now heat the items at high
power for 1 minute.
The water should be warm and the dish you are testing should
be cool. If the dish is warm, then it is absorbing microwave
energy and is not acceptable for use in the microwave.
Limited Use
•
Fill a 1 cup glass measuring cup with water and put it
inside your oven, next to the dish you want to test.
Glass jars and bottles — Regular glass is too thin to be
used in a microwave, and can shatter.
Paper bags — These are a fire hazard, except for popcorn
bags that are designed for microwave use.
Styrofoam plates and cups — These can melt and leave
an unhealthy residue on food.
Plastic storage and food containers — Containers such
as margarine tubs can melt in the microwave.
Metal utensils — These can damage your oven. Remove
all metal before cooking.

Cooking Instructions
Cooking Techniques
General Tips
Stirring
•
Stir foods such as casseroles and vegetables while cooking to
distribute heat evenly. Food at the outside of the dish absorbs
more energy and heats more quickly, so stir from the outside
to the center. The oven will turn off when you open the door to
stir your food.
•
Arrangement
•
Arrange unevenly shaped foods, such as chicken pieces or
chops, with the thicker, meatier parts toward the outside of
the turntable where they receive more microwave energy. To
prevent overcooking, place thin or delicate parts toward the
center of the turntable.
•
•
Turning
•
Turn foods over midway through cooking to expose all parts to
microwave energy. This is especially important with large
items such as roasts.
•
Standing
Foods cooked in the microwave build up internal heat and
continue to cook for a few minutes after the oven stops. Let
foods stand to complete cooking, especially foods such as
roasts and whole vegetables. Roasts need this time to
complete cooking in the center without overcooking the outer
areas. All liquids, such as soup or hot chocolate, should be
shaken or stirred when cooking is complete. Let liquids stand
a moment before serving. When heating baby food, stir well
and test the temperature before serving.
Adding Moisture
Microwave energy is attracted to water molecules. Food that
is uneven in moisture content should be covered or allowed to
stand so that the heat disperses evenly. Add a small amount of
water to dry food to help it cook.
10
Dense foods, such as potatoes, take longer to heat than
lighter foods. Foods with a delicate texture should be
heated at a low power level to avoid becoming tough.
Altitude and the type of cookware you are using can affect
cooking time. When using a new recipe, use the minimum
cooking time and check the food occasionally to prevent
overcooking.
Foods with a non-porous skin or shell, such as potatoes,
eggs, or hot dogs, should be pierced to prevent bursting.
Frying with heating oil or fat is not recommended. Fat and
oil can suddenly boil over and cause severe burns.
Some ingredients heat faster than others. For example,
the jelly inside a jelly doughnut will be hotter than the
dough. Keep this in mind to avoid burns.
Home canning in the microwave oven is not
recommended because all harmful bacteria may not be
destroyed by the microwave heating process.
Although microwaves do not heat the cookware, the heat
is often transferred to the cookware. Always use pot
holders when removing food from the microwave and
instruct children to do the same.

Guide for Cooking Eggs in Your Microwave
•
•
•
Never cook eggs in the shell, and never warm hard-cooked eggs in the shell; they can explode.
Always pierce whole eggs to keep them from bursting.
Cook eggs just until set; they become tough if overcooked.
Guide for Cooking Vegetables in Your Microwave
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Vegetables should be washed just before cooking. Often, no extra water is needed. If dense vegetables such as potatoes,
carrots and green beans are being cooked, add about ¼ cup water.
Small vegetables (sliced carrots, peas, lima beans, etc.) will cook faster than larger ones.
Whole vegetables, such as potatoes, acorn squash or corn on the cob, should be arranged in a circle on the turntable before
cooking. They will cook more evenly if turned over after half the cooking time.
Always place vegetables like asparagus and broccoli with the stem ends pointing towards the edge of the dish and the tips
toward the center.
When cooking cut vegetables, always cover the dish with a lid or vented microwavable plastic wrap.
Whole, unpeeled vegetables such as potatoes, squash, eggplant, etc., should have their skin pricked in several spots before
cooking to prevent them from bursting.
For more even cooking, stir or rearrange whole vegetables halfway through the cooking time.
Generally, the denser the food, the longer the standing time. (Standing time refers to the time necessary for dense, large foods
and vegetables to finish cooking after they come out of the oven.) A baked potato can stand on the counter for five minutes
before cooking is completed, while a dish of peas can be served immediately.

Troubleshooting Guide
Care and Cleaning
Before you call a repair person for your oven, check this list of
possible problems and solutions.
Follow these instructions to clean and care for your oven.
• Keep the inside of the oven clean. Food particles and
spilled liquids can stick to the oven walls, causing the
oven to work less efficiently.
• Wipe up spills immediately. Use a damp cloth and mild
soap. Do not use harsh detergents or abrasives.
• To help loosen baked on food particles or liquids, heat two
cups of water (add the juice of one lemon if you desire to
keep the oven fresh) in a four-cup measuring glass at High
power for five minutes or until boiling. Let stand in the
oven for one or two minutes.
• Remove the glass tray from the oven when cleaning the
oven or tray. To prevent the tray from breaking, handle it
carefully and do not put it in water immediately after
cooking. Wash the tray carefully in warm sudsy water or
in the dishwasher.
• Clean the outside surface of the oven with soap and a
damp cloth. Dry with a soft cloth. To prevent damage to
the operating parts of the oven, don’t let water seep into
the openings.
• Wash the door window with very mild soap and water. Be
sure to use a soft cloth to avoid scratching.
• If steam accumulates inside or outside the oven door,
wipe with a soft cloth. Steam can accumulate when
operating the oven in high humidity and in no way
indicates microwave leakage.
• Never operate the oven without food in it; this can damage
the magnetron tube or glass tray. You may wish to leave a
cup of water in the oven when it is not in use to prevent
damage if the oven is accidentally turned on.
The oven doesn’t operate.

cause a voltage drop. If necessary, move the oven to its
own circuit.
