properly installed and grounded. See Installation
Instructions.
This equipment generates and uses ISM frequency energy
and if not installed and used properly, that is in strict
accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions, may
cause interference to radio and television reception. It has
been type tested and found to comply with limits for ISM
Equipment, pursuant to part 18 of FCC Rules, which are
designed to provide reasonable protection against such
interference in a residential installation.
Consult a qualified electrician or servicer if grounding
instructions are not completely understood, or if doubt
exists as to whether the oven is properly grounded.
Do not use an extension cord. If the product power
cord is too short, have a qualified electrician install a
three-slot receptacle. This oven should be plugged into a
separate 60 hertz circuit with the electrical ratting as
shown in specifications table. When the oven is on a
circuit with other equipment, an increase in cooking times
may be required and fuses can be blown.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not
occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does
cause interference to radio or television reception, which
can be determined by turning the equipment off and on,
the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by
one or more of the following:

risks resulting from becoming entangled in or
tripping over a longer cord.
b. Extension cords may be used if care is exercised in
their use.
c. If an extension cord is used:
1. The marked electrical rating of the cord set or
extension cord set should be at least as great as
the electrical rating of the appliance.
2. The extension cord must be a grounding-type 3wire cord.
3. The longer cord should be arranged so that it will
not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it
can be tripped over, snagged, or pulled on
unintentionally.

Microwave utensil guide
Use
Oven proof glass (specifically
treated for high intensity heat):
Utility dishes, loaf dishes, pie plates,
cake plates, liquid measuring cups,
casseroles and bowls without
metallic trim.
Ÿ China:
Bowls, cups, serving plates and
platters without metallic trim.
Plastic:
Plastic wrap (as a cover) - lay the
plastic wrap loosely over the dish
and press it to the sides. Vent
plastic wrap by turning back one
edge slightly to allow excess steam
to escape. The dish should be deep
enough so that the plastic wrap will
not touch the food. Use plastic
dishes, cups, semi-rigid freezer
containers and plastic bags for short
cooking times. Use these with care
because the plastic may soften from
the heat of the food.
Ÿ Paper:
Paper towels, waxed paper, paper
napkins and paper plates with no
metallic trim or design. Look for the
manufacturer’s label for any special
instructions for use in the
microwave oven.
Do not use
Metal utensils:
Metal shields the food from microwave energy and produces uneven
cooking. Also, avoid metal skewers, thermometers or foil trays. Metal
utensils can cause arcing, which can damage your microwave oven.
Ÿ Metal decoration:
Bowls, cups, serving plates and platters without metallic trim.
Aluminum foil:
Avoid large sheets of aluminum foil because they hinder cooking and
may cause harmful arcing. Use small pieces of foil to shield poultry legs
and wings. Keep ALL aluminum foil at least 1 inch from the side walls of
the oven cavity and door of the microwave.
Wood:
Wooden bowls and boards will dry out and may split or crack when you
use them in the microwave oven. Baskets made of wood will react in the
same way.
Tightly covered utensils:
e sure to leave openings for steam to escape from covered cookware.
Pierce plastic pouches of vegetables or other food items before cooking.
Tightly closed pouches may explode.
Ÿ Brown paper:
Avoid using brown paper bags. They absorb heat and can burn.
Flawed or chipped cooking utensils:
Any utensil that is cracked, flawed or chipped may break in the oven.
Metal twist ties:
Remove metal twist ties from plastic or paper bags. They become hot and
could cause a fire.

Natural moisture
Very moist foods cook more evenly because microwave
energy heats water molecules very efficiently.
Ÿ Stirring
Stir foods such as casseroles and vegetable from the
outside to the center to distribute the heat more evenly.
This will allow the food to cook faster. Constant stirring is
not necessary.
Turn over items
Turn over foods such as pork chops, roasts or whole
cauliflower halfway through the cook time. This will help
to expose all sides equally to microwave energy.
Food placement
Place delicate areas of food items, such as asparagus
tips, toward the center of the turntable tray.
Food arrangement
Arrange unevenly shaped foods, such as chicken pieces
or salmon, with the thicker or meatier parts toward the
outside of the turntable tray.
Let the food stand
After removing the food from the microwave, cover the
food with foil or a casserole lid and let it stand to finish
cooking. This will help the food finish in the center and
avoids overcooking the out edges. The length of stand
time depends on the density and surface area of the
food items.
Wrapping in paper towels or waxed paper
Sandwiches and many other food types containing prebaked bread should be wrapped prior to placing in the
microwave to help prevent the food items fro drying out
while heating.

Cooking vegetables in your microwave
Ÿ When cooking cut vegetables, always cover the dish with
a lid or vented microwavable plastic wrap.
Ÿ Vegetables should be washed just before cooking.
Rarely is extra water needed. If dense vegetables such
as potatoes, carrots and greens are being cooked, add
about ¼ cup of water.
Ÿ Whole, unpeeled vegetables such as potatoes, squash,
eggplant, etc., should have their skin pricked in several
locations before cooking to prevent them from bursting.
Ÿ Small vegetables (sliced carrots, peas, lima beans, etc.)
will cook faster than larger vegetables.
Ÿ For more even cooking, stir or rearrange whole
vegetables halfway through the cook time.
Ÿ Whole vegetables, such as potatoes, acorn squash or
corn on the cob, should be arranged in a circle on the
turntable before cooking. The will cook more evenly if
turned over halfway through cooking.
Ÿ Always place vegetables like asparagus and broccoli with
the stem ends pointing towards the edge of the dish and
the tips toward the center.
Ÿ Most of the time, the denser the food the longer the
required standing time. For example, a baked potato
should stand for 5 minutes before serving, while a dish of
peas may be served immediately.
Cooking seafood in your microwave
Place fish on a microwave-safe roasting rack in a microwave-safe dish. Be sure to always cook fish until it flakes easily
with a fork. Use a tight cover to steam fish; a lighter cover of wax paper or paper towel provides less steaming. And be
sure not to overcook fish; check it for doneness at a minimum cooking time before cooking longer.

Defrosting tips
Ÿ When using the defrost weight feature, the weight
entered should always be (valid entries are from
Ÿ Use both defrost weight and defrost time features for
raw food items only. Defrosting gives best results when
food to be thawed is a minimum of 0°F (taken directly
from a true freezer). If the food has been stored in a
refrigerator-freezer that does not maintain a temperature
of 5° F or below, always program a lower food weight or
lower cook time to prevent cooking the food.
Ÿ If the frozen food is stored outside the freezer for up to
20 minutes, enter a reduced cook time or weight.
Ÿ The shape of the package will alter the defrosting time.
Shallow rectangular food packets defrost more quickly
than a deep frozen block of food.
Ÿ Separate pieces as they begin to defrost. Separated
frozen pieces of food defrost better.
Ÿ Shield warm areas of food with small pieces of foil if they
start to become warm.
Ÿ You may use small pieces of aluminum foil to shield food
items like chicken wings, leg tips and fish tails, but do not
allow the foil to touch the oven cavity walls when
defrosting.

Care & Cleaning
Cleaning suggestions
For best performance and for safety reasons, keep the
oven clean inside and outside. Take special care to keep
the inner door panel and oven from frame free of food and
grease build-up.
Ÿ
Wash the oven door window with very mild soap
and water. Be sure to use a soft clean cloth to avoid
scratching.
Ÿ
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.
Ÿ
Never operate the oven without food in the oven
cavity; this can damage the magnetron tube or
glass tray. You may wish to leave a cup of water
standing inside the oven when it is not in use to
prevent damage if the oven is accidentally turned on.
Never use rough scouring powder or pads on the
microwave. Wipe the microwave oven inside and out with a
soft cloth and warm (not hot) mild detergent solution. Then
rinse and wipe completely dry.
Wipe spatters immediately with a wet paper towel,
especially after cooking greasy foods like chicken or bacon.
Clean your microwave oven weekly or more often, if
Follow these instructions to clean and care for your
microwave oven:
Ÿ
Keep the inside (cavity) of the oven clean. Food particles
and spilled liquids can stick to the oven walls, causing
the oven to wok less efficiently.
Ÿ
Wipe up spills immediately. Use a damp, clean cloth and
mild soap. DO NOT use harsh detergents or abrasive
cleaners.
Ÿ
To help loosen baked-on food particles or liquids, heat 2
cups of water (add the juice of 1 lemon if you desire to
keep the oven fresh smelling) in a 4 cup measuring glass
at High power for 5 minutes or until boiling. Let stand in
oven cavity for 1 or 2 minutes.
Ÿ
Remove the glass turntable tray from the oven when
cleaning the oven cavity or tray. To prevent the glass
turntable from breaking, handle with care and do not put
it in water immediately after cooking. Wash the turntable
tray in warm sudsy water or in the dishwasher.
Ÿ
Clean the outside surface of the microwave with soap
and a clean damp cloth. Dry with a clean soft cloth. To
prevent damage to the operating parts of the oven, do
not let water seep into any vents or openings.
