WARNING
WARNING
To avoid the risk of electrical shock or death, this
equipment must be earthed.
!
WARNING
Do not remove earthing prong when installing
earthed appliance in a home or business that does
not have three wire earthing receptacle, under no
condition is earthing prong to be cut off or removed.
It is the personal responsibility of the consumer to
contact a qualified electrician and have properly
earthed three prong wall receptacle installed in
accordance with appropriate electrical codes.
(C) Before turning on microwave power for any
service test or inspection within the microwave
generating compartments, check the magnetron,
waveguide or transmission line, and cavity for
proper alignment, integrity, and connections.
Should a two prong adapter plug be required temporarily it
is the personal responsibility of the consumer to have it
replaced with properly earthed three prong receptacle or
the two prong adapter properly earthed by a qualified
electrician in accordance with appropriate electrical codes.
(D) Any defective or misadjusted components in the
interlock, monitor, door seal, and microwave
generation and transmission systems shall be
repaired, replaced or adjusted by procedures
described in this manual before oven is released
to the consumer.
Servicing of Earthed Products
The standard accepted color coding for grounding wires
is GREEN or GREEN WITH YELLOW STRIPE. These
earth leads are NOT to be used as current carrying
conductors. It is extremely important that the technician
replace any and all earths prior to completion of the
service call. Under no condition should earth wire be left
off causing a potential hazard to technicians and
consumer.
(E) Check microwave leakage to verify compliance
with the federal performance standard should be
performed on each oven prior to release to the
consumer.
WIRING
Good service practice is to never route wiring over terminals and/or sharp edges. This applies to any wiring
without regard to the circuit voltage. Wire insulation material and thickness is designed and regulated for electrical spacing purpose only, but cannot always be relied
upon because of possible cuts and/or abrasions, which
can occur during servicing.

Important Safety Information
!
CAUTION
Do not become exposed to radiation from the
microwave generator or other parts conducting
microwave energy.
Basic design of this microwave oven makes it an inherently
safe device to both use and service. However, there are
some precautions which should be followed when servicing microwave oven to maintain this safety. These are as
follows:
1. Always operate unit from an adequately earthed
outlet. Do not operate on a two-wire extension cord.
2. Before servicing unit (if unit is operable) perform
microwave leakage test.
3. Oven should never be operated if door does not fit
properly against seal, hinge/hinge bearings are
damaged or broken; choke is damaged, (pieces
missing, etc.); or any other visible damage can be
noted. Check choke area to ensure that this area is
clean and free of all foreign matter. If any above
problems occur take the following steps:
• Tell the user not to operate the oven.
• Contact Amana immediately.
4. If oven operates with door open and produces
microwave energy, take the following steps:
• Tell the user not to operate the oven.
• Contact Amana immediately.
5. Always have power disconnected when outer case is
removed except when making "live" tests called for
in this manual. Do not reach into equipment area

supplies high voltage A.C. for operation of the magnetron
tube.
Blower/Fan Assembly
Circulates cooling air throughout the microwave oven
compartment and cavity.
High Voltage Capacitor
Doubles the A.C. output voltage from the high voltage
transformer.
Grease Shield
Covers and protects the antenna blade assembly.
High Voltage Diode (Rectifier)
Is connected at the output side of the high voltage
capacitor. It changes voltage from A.C. to D.C. It passes
current in one direction and blocks it in the other. Also
called a rectifier.
Door Interlock and Monitoring Switch
NOTE: When the line fuse is blown the Interlock Switch
Assembly must be replaced.
Interlock switch assembly mounts behind oven cavity
front bulkhead. Switches are actuated by the door
hooks.
Magnetron
With filament voltage and high D.C. voltage from the
output of the H.V. capacitor, diode junction, the
magnetron will put out an electromagnetic radio
frequency of 2450 MHz to heat the food load in the oven.
Monitoring switch (contacts COM and NC) is actuated by
the top door hook.
The primary interlock switch (contacts COM and NO) is
actuated by the top door hook.
Thermal Cutout Protectors
The logic switch (contacts COM and NO) is actuated by
the bottom door hook.
At a predetermined temperature, the thermal cutout
protectors will open or close.
The secondary interlock switch (contacts COM and NO)
is actuated by the bottom door hook.
• Magnetron thermal cutouts are mounted directly on the
body of the magnetron
• Cavity thermal cutout is mounted directly on the left
side of cavity exterior.
If a malfunction occurs in the primary interlock when door
opens, current will flow through the monitor switch
causing the oven fuse to open.
If a faulty door interlock switch has allowed current
through the monitor switch, the switch assembly must be
replaced (see interlock switch testing) before replacing
fuse.

provides external earthing connection used in addition to
earthing prong on plug. Located on outside of oven
back, terminal is marked with symbol shown below.
Equipment Placement
• Allow at least 7 inches/ 17.8 centemeters of clearance
around top and sides of equipment. Proper air flow
around equipment cools electrical components. With
restricted air flow, oven may not operate properly and
life of electrical parts is reduced.
• Allow at least 2-9/16 inches/ 6.5 centimeters between
back of oven and rear wall.
• Do not install equipment next to or above source of
heat, such as pizza oven or deep fat fryer. This could
cause microwave oven to operate improperly and
could shorten life of electrical parts.
• Do not block or obstruct oven filter.
• Allow access for cleaning.
Earthing Instructions
NOTE: Do not under any circumstances cut or remove
earthing prong from the plug or bend power
prongs to fit receptacle other than one shown for
your equipment. Such abuse of the plug can
result in electrical shock or overheating.
!
Improper use of earthing plug can result in a risk of
electrical shock or death.
This equipment MUST be earthed. In the event of an
electrical short circuit, earthing reduces risk of electric
shock by providing an escape wire for electric current.
This oven is equipped with a cord having earthing wire
with a earthing plug. Plug must be plugged into an outlet
that is properly installed and earthed. DO NOT use a twoprong adapter.
Radio Interference
Microwave operation may cause interference to radio,
television, or similar equipment. Reduce or eliminate
interference by doing the following:
• Clean door and sealing surfaces of oven according to
instructions in “Care and Cleaning” section.
• Place radio, television, etc. as far as possible
from oven.
• Use a properly installed antenna on radio, television,
etc. to obtain stronger signal reception.

2. Using the thermometer; Fahrenheit or Centigrade,
stir the water, measure and record the water
temperature. IMPORTANT: Initial water
temperature should be approximately 60°F (20°C).
NOTE: Variation or errors in the test procedure will
cause a variance in the temperature rise
indication. Additional power tests should be
made if temperature rise appears marginal.
3. Place the container on the center of the oven shelf
and heat the water for 63 seconds for ovens rated
less then 1550 watts or 33 seconds for ovens with
more then 1550 watts of power.
NOTE: Low line voltage may cause lower power output
(temperature rise).
6. Refer to the Temperature Chart.
NOTE: Always perform 3 tests for accuracy. Change
the water after each test.

Microwave Energy Leakage Test
!
Measurement With the Outer Case
Removed
WARNING
!
Check for radiation leakage after servicing. Should the
leakage be more than 4mW/cm2 inform Amana
immediately. After repairing or replacing any radiation
safety device, keep a written record for future
reference, as required by D.H.H.S. and HEW
regulations. This requirement must be strictly
observed. In addition, the leakage reading must be
recorded on the service repair ticket while at the
customer’s location.
DANGER
To avoid risk of personal injury or death avoid
contacting any high voltage components.
Whenever you replace the magnetron, measure for
radiation leakage before the outer case is installed and
after all necessary components are replaced or
adjusted. Special care should be taken in measuring
around the magnetron.
Equipment
Measurement With a Fully Assembled Oven
• Electromagnetic radiation monitor
• 600 cc glass beaker
After all components, including the outer panel are fully
assembled, measure for radiation leakage around the
door periphery, the door viewing window, the exhaust
opening, and air inlet openings.
Procedure For Measuring Radiation
Leakage
Note before measuring -
Record Keeping and Notification After
Measurement
• Do not exceed meter full scale deflection. Leak
monitor should initially be set to the highest scale.
• To prevent false readings the test probe should be
held by the grip portion of the handle only.
• The scan speed is equal to one inch per antenna
revolution or one inch per second if antenna speed is
unknown.
• Areas to be checked are all door seal areas and any
venting parts.
• Leakage with the outer panel removed, 4mW/cm2 or
less.
• Leakage for fully assembled oven with door normally
closed, 4mW/cm2 or less.
• Leakage for a fully assembly oven (before the latch
switch (primary) is interrupted) while pulling the door,
4mW/cm2 or less.
1. After any adjustment or repair to a microwave oven,
a leakage reading must be taken. Record this
leakage reading on the repair ticket even if it is zero.
2. A copy of the repair ticket and the microwave
leakage reading should be kept by the repair facility.
1 . Pour 275 ± 15 cc (9 oz ± 1/2 oz) of 20 ± 5°C. (68±
9°F.) water in a glass beaker which is graduated to
600 cc and place the beaker in the center of rack.
2. Set the radiation monitor to 2450 MHz and use it
following the manufacturer’s recommended test
procedure to assure correct results.
3. While measuring the leakage, always use the two
inch (5 cm) spacer supplied with the probe.
4. Press the start pad or turn on the timer and with the
magnetron oscillating, measure the leakage by
holding the probe perpendicular to the surface being
measured.
