d.
DO NOT use the cavity for storage purposes. DO NOT leave paper products, cooking utensils, or food in
the cavity when not in use.
THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE SERVICED ONLY BY QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSONNEL. CONTACT YOUR
NEAREST AUTHORIZED SERVICE FACILITY FOR EXAMINATION, REPAIR, OR ADJUSTMENT.
CAUTION
TO AVOID PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
Do not heat baby bottles in microwave oven.
Briskly stir or pour liquids before heating to
prevent spontaneous boiling or eruption. Do
not overheat. If air is not mixed into a liquid,
liquid can erupt in oven or after removal from
oven.
9. All uncooked foods should be heated to a
final internal temperature of at least 165°F.
Some foods require higher temperatures.
These recommended temperatures kill most
food borne, disease causing organisms.
Some common visual signs that indicate the
cooking temperature has been reached:
• Food steams throughout, not just around
edges.
• Center bottom of dish is very hot to the
touch.
10. If using a microwave popcorn popper, use
according to manufacturer's instructions. Do
not continue to heat after popping has stopped.
Popcorn will scorch or burn. Do not leave oven
unattended.
Always press STOP/RESET before
programming oven.
Do not deep fat fry in oven. Fat could
overheat and be hazardous to handle.
Do not cook or reheat eggs in shell or with
an unbroken yolk. Pressure may build up
and erupt. Pierce yolk with a fork or knife
before cooking. Do not reheat previously
cooked eggs in the microwave oven unless
finely chopped or scrambled.
Pierce skin of potatoes, tomatoes, or other
foods with a "skin" before cooking in
microwave oven. This allows steam to
escape during cooking.
Do not home can in microwave oven. Home
canning is generally done with metal lids.
Since metal lids reflect heat, product may
not be heated uniformly to 212°F or above.
Food could deteriorate. USDA extension
specialists do not recommend home canning
in microwave ovens.
Remove excess fat from meats and poultry to
prevent splattering.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
11. Use only popcorn in packages designed and
labeled for microwave use. Pop according
to package directions, beginning with the
minimum amount of time recommended.
Use caution when handling hot popcorn bag.
12. Microwave convenience foods are often
packaged in specially designed packaging.
Special plates, lids, containers, or other
unique packaging materials may be used.
Susceptor packing material (a thin, metalized
plastic film) is frequently used to help brown
and make crisp foods such as microwave
pizzas, French fries, or fish sticks. Be sure to
follow food package instructions carefully.

How the Microwave/Convection Oven Works
Microwave Cooking
Microwaves are generated by magnetrons and cook
food evenly on rotating turntable.
Convection Cooking
This is a method of cooking with hot air from the
convection heater situated at rear of oven. This
method allows food to be browned evenly without
losing any of the juices. Heated air is circulated in
oven by a fan. This enables efficient heating and
cooking of food. Temperature inside oven can be
controlled according to the type and weight of food
being cooked. May also be used when surface
crusting is desired along with browning.
Combination Cooking
Using a combination of microwaves, hot air, and
radiant heat, unit cooks alternately, according to
programmed cycles.
