seals and sealing surfaces, broken or loose
door hinges and latches and dents inside the
cavity or on the door. If there is any damage,
do not operate the oven and contact your
dealer or SHARP AUTHORIZED SERVICER.
Choosing a Location for Your Oven
You will use the oven frequently so plan its
location for ease of use. It's wise, if possible,
to have counter space on at least one side of
the oven. Allow at least 2 inches on the sides,
top and at the rear of the oven for air circulation. Do not place or install the oven in any
area where heat and steam are generated; for
example, next to or above a conventional gas
or electric range or above a conventional wall
oven. Heat and steam may damage the electronics or the mechanical parts of the oven.
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
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 this appliance 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. Should you only have a 2-prong outlet, have a qualified electrician install a correct wall receptacle.
A 3-prong adapter may be purchased and used temporarily if
local codes allow. Follow package directions.
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce risk of becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
Extension Cord
If it is necessary to use an extension cord, use only a 3-wire extension
cord that has a 3-blade grounding plug and a 3-slot receptacle that will
accept the plug on the microwave oven. The marked rating of the extension cord should be AC 115-120 volt, 15 amp. or more.
Be careful not to drape the cord over the countertop or table where it
can be pulled on by children or tripped over accidentally.
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.

ABOUT YOUR OVEN
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 page 16 for ordering the Ultimate Accessory, the SHARP CAROUSEL MICROWAVE COOKBOOK.
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.
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.
The oven is for food preparation only. It should not
be used to dry clothes or newspapers.
Your oven is rated 650 watts by using the IEC Test
Procedure.
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.
ALWAYS have food in the oven when it is on to
absorb the microwave energy.
When using the oven at power levels below 100%,

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 13 for Child Lock feature.

INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW
ABOUT MICROWAVE COOKING
• Rearrange foods such as meatballs halfway
through cooking both from top to bottom and from
the center of the dish to the outside.
• Arrange food carefully. Place thickest areas towards outside of dish.
• 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.
• 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.
Doneness signs include:
- Food steams throughout, not just at edge.
- Center bottom of dish is very hot to the
touch.
• 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.
- Meat and poultry show no pinkness.
- Fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.
ABOUT SAFETY
• 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
... 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.
• 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.
• 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.
• 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.
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.
• Keep waveguide cover clean. Food residue can
cause arcing and/or fires.
• Use care when removing items from the oven so
that the utensil, your clothes or accessories do
not touch the safety door latches.

larger weights such as 3.0 lbs because it requires
fewer touches. To program, touch EXPRESS
DEFROST and enter weight by touching the

SPECIAL FEATURES
MANUAL DEFROST
INSTANT START
If the food that you wish to defrost is not listed on
the EXPRESS DEFROST CHART or is above or
below the limits in the “Amount” column on the
EXPRESS DEFROST CHART, you need to defrost
manually.
You can defrost any frozen food, either raw or previously cooked, by using 30% power level. See
page 9. Estimate defrosting time and press
POWER LEVEL pad 8 times when you select the
power level.
For either raw or previously cooked frozen food
the rule of thumb is approximately 5 minutes per
pound. For example, defrost 5 minutes for 2-3 cups
of casserole or 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
at 30% 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.
Instant Start allows you to cook or reheat many of
your favorite foods by touching just one pad.
• Suppose you want to cook a baked potato.
PROCEDURE
1
BAKED
POTATOES
Touch BAKED POTATOES pad once.
The oven starts automatically.
To cook double quantity, touch the same pad twice
within 1 second.
Instant Start can only be entered within 3 minutes
after cooking, opening and closing the door or
touching the STOP/CLEAR pad.
Instant Start can be programmed with More or Less
Time adjustment. See page 13.
TIPS: Foods can be covered with wax paper
or vented plastic wrap. Temperatures of
foods covered with plastic wrap tend to
be slightly higher than those covered
with wax paper.
Stir items after removing from oven, if
possible.

For beans, carrots, corn and peas, add 1 tablespoon of
water per cup. For broccoli, Brussel sprouts, cabbage and
cauliflower, cook immediately after washing with no additional water.
If you like tender crisp vegetables, double measured quantity per setting. For example, use 2 cups cauliflower and
program for 1 cup. After cooking, remove from oven, stir,
cover and let stand 3 to 5 minutes before serving.

somewhat below the boiling point to make instant coffee or
tea. Stir liquid briskly before heating to avoid “eruption”.
FRESH ROLLS/
MUFFINS
1 - 2 pcs.
Use to warm rolls, muffins, biscuits, bagels etc. Large item
should be considered as 2 regular size. Cover each roll/
muffin with paper towel.
For refrigerated rolls or muffins, it may be necessary to double
the entered amount to ensure the proper serving temperature. For example, enter quantity of 2 for 1 refrigerated muffin.
For frozen rolls or muffins, use More Time Adjustment.

Place in bowl or casserole. Cover with lid or plastic wrap.
At end, stir, re-cover and let stand 1 to 3 minutes.
Use to reheat refrigerated canned or homemade pasta with
sauce or other cooked casserole. For room temperature
pasta or casserole, use Less option. For pasta without sauce
double the quantity per setting. For example, measure 2
cups of cooked noodles and program for small (2 touches).
Cover with lid or plastic wrap.

power level setting to another automatically.
Sometimes cooking directions tell you to start on
one power level and then change to a different

CLEANING AND CARE
Disconnect the power cord before cleaning or
leave the door open to inactivate the oven during cleaning.
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.
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.
Touch Control Panel
Exterior
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 pad.
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. NEVER SPRAY OVEN CLEANERS
DIRECTLY ONTO ANY PART OF THE OVEN.
Interior
Waveguide Cover
The waveguide cover 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
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.
Turntable
Turntable/ Turntable Support
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 a non-abrasive scouring sponge. They are also dishwasher-proof.
The turntable motor shaft is not sealed, so excess water or spills should be wiped up immediately.
