Frequency Interference
Statement (U.S.A. Only)
WARNING
To avoid risk of electrical shock or death, this oven must
be grounded and plug must not be altered.
Oven MUST be grounded.
Grounding reduces risk of electric
shock by providing an escape wire
for the electric current if an electrical
short occurs. This oven is equipped
with a cord having a grounding wire with a grounding plug.
The plug must be plugged into an outlet that is properly
installed and grounded. See Installation Instructions.
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 rating 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.
Microwave operates on standard household current,
110-120V.
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.
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:
• Reorient the receiving antenna of the radio or television.
• Relocate the microwave oven with respect to the
receiver.
• Move the microwave oven away from the receiver.
• Plug the microwave oven into a different outlet so that
the microwave oven and the receiver are on different
branch circuits.
The manufacturer is not responsible for any radio
or television interference caused by unauthorized
modification to this microwave oven. It is the
responsibility of the user to correct such interference.

MICROWAVE UTENSIL GUIDE
USE
OVEN PROOF GLASS (treated for high intensity
heat):
Utility dishes, loaf dishes, pie plates, cake
plates, liquid measuring cups, casseroles and
bowls without metallic trim.
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.
As the food heats it may melt the plastic wrap
wherever the wrap touches the food.
Use plastic dishes, cups, semirigid freezer
containers and plastic bags only for short
cooking times. Use these with care because the
plastic may soften from the heat of the food.
PAPER:
Paper towels, waxed paper, paper napkins, and
paper plates with no metallic trim or design.
Look for the manufacturer’s label 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.
METAL DECORATION:
Metal-trimmed or metal-banded dinnerware, casserole dishes, etc. The
metal trim interferes with normal cooking and may damage the oven.
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 and door of the oven.
WOOD:
Wooden bowls and boards will dry out and may split or crack when
you use them in the microwave oven. Baskets react in the same way.
TIGHTLY COVERED UTENSILS:
Be sure to leave openings for steam to escape from covered utensils.
Pierce plastic pouches of vegetables or other food items before
cooking.
Tightly closed pouches could explode.
BROWN PAPER:
Avoid using brown paper bags.
They absorb too much heat and could burn.
FLAWED OR CHIPPED 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.

Manual Operation
Getting The Best Cooking Results
To get the best results from your microwave oven, read and follow the guidelines below.
•
Storage Temperature: Foods taken from the freezer or refrigerator take longer to cook than the same foods at
room temperature.
•
Size: Small pieces of food cook faster than large ones, pieces similar in size and shape cook more evenly. For
even cooking, reduce the power level when cooking large pieces of food.
•
Natural Moisture: Very moist foods cook more evenly because microwave energy is attracted to water
molecules.
•
Stir foods such as casseroles and vegetables from the outside to the center to distribute the heat evenly and
speed cooking. Constant stirring is not necessary.
•
Turn over foods like pork chops, roasts, or whole cauliflower halfway through the cooking time to expose all
sides equally to microwave energy.
•
Place delicate areas of foods, such as asparagus tips, toward the center of the dish.
•
Arrange unevenly shaped foods, such as chicken pieces or salmon steaks, with the thicker, meatier parts
toward the outside of the dish.
•
Shield, with small pieces of aluminum foil, parts of food that may cook quickly, such as wing tips and leg ends
of poultry.
•
Let It Stand: After you remove the food from the microwave, cover food with foil or casserole lid and let it stand
to finish cooking in the center and avoid overcooking the outer edges. The length of standing time depends on
the density and surface area of the food.
•
Wrapping in waxed paper or paper towel: Sandwiches and many other foods containing prebaked bread
should be wrapped prior to microwaving to prevent drying out.

Operating Instructions
AUTO DEFROST
Food
Defrost choices are preset in the oven. The defrost feature
provides you with the best defrosting method for frozen
foods, because the oven automatically sets the defrosting
times according to the weight you enter. For added
convenience, the AUTO DEFROST beeps to remind you to
check or turn over the food during the defrost cycle.
Standard
Amount
Whole
Chicken
2.5-6.0 lbs.
Remove giblets before freezing
poultry. Start defrosting with the
breast side down. After the first
stage, turn the chicken over and
shield any warm portions with
narrow strips of aluminum foil. After
the second stage, again shield any
warm portions with narrow strips of
aluminum foil. Let stand, covered, for
30-60 minutes in the refrigerator.
Chicken
Pieces
0.5-3.0 lbs.
After each stage, rearrange or
remove any pieces of food that are
nearly defrosted. Let stand for 10-20
minutes.
After touching the Auto Defrost pad once, select the food
weight. Available weight ranges are 0.1 to 6.0 lbs.
Example: To defrost 1.2 lbs of meat.
1.
Touch Auto Defrost pad.
2.
Enter the weight.
3.
Touch ENTER/START pad.
DEFROST TIPS
NOTES
• After you touch ENTER/ START pad, the display
counts down the defrost time. The oven will beep
twice during the Defrost cycle. At this time, open
the door and turn the food as needed. Remove any
portions that have thawed then return frozen portions
to the oven and touch ENTER/START pad to resume
the defrost cycle.
• The oven will not stop during the BEEP unless the
door is opened.
DEFROSTING GUIDE
Follow the instructions below when defrosting different
types of food.
Food
Standard
Amount
Procedure
Procedure
Roast
Beef,
Pork
2.5-6.0 lbs.
Start with the food placed fat side
down. After each stage, turn the food
over and shield any warm portions
with narrow strips of aluminum foil.
Let stand, covered for 15-30 minutes.
Steaks,
Chops,
Fish
0.5-3.0 lbs.
After each stage, rearrange the food.
If there are any warm or thawed
portions of food, shield them with
narrow flat pieces of aluminum foil.
Remove any pieces of food that are
nearly defrosted. Let stand, covered,
for 5-10 minutes.
Ground
Meat
0.5-3.0 lbs.
After each stage, remove any pieces
of food that are nearly defrosted.
Let stand, covered with foil, for 5-10
minutes.
• When using AUTO DEFROST, the weight to be entered
is the net weight in pounds and tenths of pounds (the
weight of the food minus the container).
• Use AUTO DEFROST only for raw food. AUTO
DEFROST gives best results when food to be thawed is
a minimum of 0°F (taken directly from a true freezer). If
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 (for a shorter defrosting
time) to prevent cooking the food.
• If the food is stored outside the freezer for up to 20
minutes, enter a lower food weight.
• The shape of the package alters the defrosting time.
Shallow rectangular packets defrost more quickly than a
deep block.
• Separate pieces as they begin to defrost. Separated
pieces defrost more easily.
• Shield areas of food with small pieces of foil if they start
to become warm.
• You can use small pieces of alu-minum foil to shield
foods like chicken wings, leg tips, and fish tails, but the
foil must not touch the side of the oven. Foil causes
arcing, which can damage the oven lining.

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 has passed.
• 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, while a dish of peas can be served immediately.

Care and Cleaning
CARE AND CLEANING
CLEANING THE GREASE FILTER
For best performance and safety, keep the oven clean
inside and out-side. Take special care to keep the inner
door panel and the oven front frame free of food or grease
build-up. Never use rough powder or pads. Wipe the
microwave oven inside and out, including the hood bottom
cover, with a soft cloth and a warm (not hot) mild detergent
solution. Then rinse and wipe dry. Use a chrome cleaner
and polish on chrome, metal and aluminum surfaces. Wipe
spatters immediately with a wet paper towel, especially
after cooking chicken or bacon. Clean your oven weekly or
more often, if needed.
The grease filter should be removed and cleaned often, at
least once a month.
CAUTION
To avoid risk of personal injury or property damage,
do not operate oven hood without filters in place.
1.
To remove grease filter, slide filter to the side. Pull filter
downward and push to the other side. The filter will
drop out.
2.
Soak grease filter in hot water and a mild detergent.
Rinse well and shake to dry. Do not use ammonia or
place in a dishwasher. The aluminum will darken.
3.
To reinstall the filter, slide it into the side slot, then
push up and toward oven center to lock.
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.

Before You Call
TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
You see sparks or arcing.
Before you call a repair person for your oven, check this
list of possible problems and solutions.
• Remove any metallic utensils, cookware, or metal ties. If
using foil, use only narrow strips and allow at least one
inch between the foil and interior oven walls.
Neither the oven’s display nor the oven
operate.
• Properly insert the plug into a grounded outlet.
• If the outlet is controlled by a wall switch, make sure the
wall switch is turned on.
• Remove the plug from the outlet, wait ten seconds, then
plug it in again.
• Reset the circuit breaker or replace any blown fuse.
• Plug another appliance into the outlet; if the other
appliance doesn’t work, have a qualified electrician
repair the outlet.
• Plug the oven into a different outlet.
The oven’s display works, but the power
won’t come on.
• Make sure the door is closed securely.
• Check to see if packing material or other material is
stuck to the door seal.
• Check for door damage.
• Press STOP/CLEAR pad twice and re-enter all cooking
instructions.
The power goes off before the set time has
elapsed.
• If there has not been a power outage, remove the plug
from the outlet, wait ten seconds, then plug it in again.
If there was a power outage, the time indicator will
display:
• Reset the clock and any cooking instructions.
• Reset the circuit breaker or replace any blown fuse.
The food is cooking too slowly.
• Make sure the oven is on its own 20 amp circuit line.
Operating another appliance on the same circuit can
cause a voltage drop. If necessary, move the oven to its
own circuit.
22
The turntable makes noises or sticks.
• Clean the turntable, roller ring and oven floor.
• Make sure the turntable and roller ring are positioned
correctly.
Using your microwave causes TV or radio
interference.
• This is similar to the interference caused by other small
appliances, such as hair dryers. Move your microwave
further away from other appliances, like your TV or
radio.
NOTE
If the oven is set to cook for more than 25 minutes,
it will automatically adjust itself to 70 percent power
after 25 minutes to avoid overcooking.
If you have a problem you cannot
solve, please call our service line:
