before the Microwave Oven is installed. See 3 ELECTRICAL GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS on page 7.
1 MOUNTING SPACE
Figure 1
This Microwave Oven requires a mounting
space on a wall as shown in Figure 1. It is
designed to be used under standard 24-inch
wide wall cabinets.
24"
2 WALL CONSTRUCTION
This Microwave Oven should be mounted against and supported by a flat vertical wall. The wall must be flat for
proper installation. If the wall is not flat, use spacers to fill in the gaps. Wall construction should be a minimum of
2” x 4” wood studding and 3/8” or more thick dry wall or plaster/lath. The mounting surfaces must be capable of
supporting weight of 110 pounds—the oven and contents—AND the weight of all items which would normally be
stored in the top cabinet above the unit.
The unit should be attached to a minimum of one 2” x 4” wall stud.
To find the location of the studs, one of the following methods may be used:
A. Use a stud finder, a magnetic device which locates the nails in the stud.
B. Use a hammer to tap lightly across the mounting surface to find a solid sound. This will indicate stud location.
The center of the stud can be located by probing the wall with a small nail to find the edges of the stud and then
placing a mark halfway between the edges. The center of any adjacent studs will normally be 16” or 24” to either
side of this mark.

ABOUT YOUR OVEN
When using the oven at power levels below 100%, 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.
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 29 for ordering the
Ultimate Accessory, the Sharp Carousel Microwave
Cookbook.
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.
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.
The oven is for food preparation only. It should not be
used to dry clothes or newspapers.
ALWAYS have food in the oven when it is on to absorb
All ovens are rated 1100 watts by using the IEC Test
Procedure. In using recipes or package directions,
check food a minute or two before the minimum time

INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW
ABOUT UTENSILS AND COVERINGS
becomes very hot should not be used.
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.
The following coverings are ideal:
• Paper towels are good for covering foods for reheating and absorbing fat while cooking bacon.
Use these utensils for safe microwave cooking
and reheating:
• Wax paper can be used for cooking and
reheating.
• glass ceramic (Pyroceram®), such as
Corningware®.
• 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.
• heat-resistant glass (Pyrex®)
• microwave-safe plastics
• paper plates
• Lids that are microwave-safe are a good choice
because heat is kept near the food to hasten
cooking.
• 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.)
These items can be used for short time reheating of foods that have little fat or sugar in them:
How to use aluminum foil in your microwave
oven:
• wood, straw, wicker
• 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.
DO NOT USE
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
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
• Foil should not come closer than one inch to any
surface of the oven.
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
ABOUT CHILDREN AND THE MICROWAVE

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 25 for Child Lock feature.

INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW
ABOUT MICROWAVE COOKING
• Arrange food carefully. Place thickest areas towards
outside of dish.
• Rearrange foods such as meatballs halfway
through cooking both from top to bottom and from
the center of the dish to the outside.
• 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.
Doneness signs include:
• 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.
- Food steams throughout, not just at edge.
• 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.
- Fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.
- Center bottom of dish is very hot to the touch.
- Meat and poultry show no pinkness.
ABOUT SAFETY
• Check foods to see that they are cooked to
the United States Department of Agriculture's
recommended temperatures.
TEMP
160°F
165°F
• 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.
FOOD
• 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.
... for fresh pork, ground meat,
boneless white poultry, fish,
seafood, egg dishes and frozen
prepared food.
• Stay near the oven while it's in use and check
cooking progress frequently so that there is no
chance of overcooking food.
... for leftover, ready-to-reheat
refrigerated, and deli and carryout “fresh” food.
170°F
... white meat of poultry.
180°F
... dark meat of poultry.
• 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.
• Keep waveguide cover clean. Food residue can
cause arcing and/or fires.
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.
• Use care when removing items from the oven so
that the utensil, your clothes or accessories do not
touch the safety door latches.

SENSOR COOK
Using Sensor Settings:
7. If the sensor does not detect vapor properly when
popping popcorn, the oven will turn off, and the
correct time of day will be displayed. If the sensor
does not detect vapor properly when cooking other
foods, ERROR will be displayed, and the oven will
turn off.
1. After oven is plugged in, wait 2 minutes before
using Sensor Cook.
8. Check food for temperature after cooking. If additional time is needed, continue to cook manually.
2. Be sure the exterior of the cooking container and
the interior of the oven are dry. Wipe off any moisture with a dry cloth or paper towel.
9. Each food has a cooking hint. Touch CUSTOM HELP
pad when the HELP indicator is lighted in the

Covering Foods:
Sharp's Sensor is a semi-conductor device that detects
the vapor (moisture and humidity) emitted from the food
as it heats. The sensor adjusts the cooking times and
power level for various foods and quantities.
Some foods work best when covered. Use the cover
recommended in the INSTANT SENSOR and SENSOR
COOK CENTER for these foods.
4. Any Sensor Cook selection can be programmed
with More or Less Time Adjustment. See page 26.

5. More or less food than the quantity listed in the
chart should be cooked following the guidelines in
any microwave cookbook.
2. Plastic wrap: Use plastic wrap recommended for
microwave cooking. Cover dish loosely; allow
approximately 1/2 inch to remain uncovered to
allow steam to escape. Plastic wrap should not
touch food.
6. During the first part of Sensor Cook, the food name
will appear on the display. Do not open the oven
door or touch STOP/CLEAR during this part of
the cooking cycle. The measurement of vapor
will be interrupted. If this occurs, an error message
will appear. To continue cooking, touch the
STOP/CLEAR pad and cook manually.
3. Wax paper: Cover dish completely; fold excess
wrap under dish to secure. If dish is wider than
paper, overlap two pieces at least one inch to cover.
Be careful when removing any covering to allow
steam to escape away from you.
When the sensor detects the vapor emitted from
the food, remainder of cooking time will appear.
Door may be opened when remaining cooking
time appears on the display. At this time, you may

CLEANING AND CARE
Disconnect the power cord before cleaning or leave the door open to inactivate the oven during cleaning.
Exterior
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.
The rack can be cleaned with hot soapy water, rinsed
and dried.
The outside surface is precoated steel and plastic.
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
Be careful with the edge of the oven door as it is glass
and could chip or break. 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.
Odor Removal
Stainless Steel Trim (R-1214)
The exterior should be wiped often with a damp cloth
and polished with a soft dry cloth to maintain its beauty.
There are also a variety of products designed especially for cleaning and shining the stainless exterior of
the oven. We recommend that the cleaner be applied
to a soft cloth and then carefully used on the stainless
exterior rather than sprayed directly onto it. Follow package directions carefully.
Turntable/Turntable Support
Touch Control Panel
The waveguide cover is located on the right side wall
of the oven cavity. It 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.
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.
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 non-abrasive
scouring sponge. They are also dishwasher-proof. Use
upper rack of dishwasher. The turntable motor shaft is
not sealed, so excess water or spills should be wiped
up immediately.
Waveguide Cover
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.
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
REPLACING PARTS
ACCENT LIGHT AND
TASK LIGHT
1. To replace light bulbs, first disconnect power to the
oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging.
2. To release cover, remove the screw on the light cover.
(See illustration.)
3. Replace light bulbs with equivalent watt bulb
available from your Sharp Authorized Servicer or
parts distributor. Bulbs are also available at most
hardware stores or lighting centers. DO NOT USE
A BULB LARGER THAN 30 WATTS.

4. Close light cover and secure with screw removed in
