WARNING
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS : READ CAREFULLY AND KEEP FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.
Whenever the top heater, bottom heater or convection symbols are displayed the turntable, turntable support,
racks, oven door, outer cabinet, oven cavity and especially bottom heater will become very hot. To prevent yourself
from getting burnt use thick oven mittens.
Do not put things on top of the oven or cover the outer cabinet.
Accessible parts (e,g. oven door, turntable and rack) will become hot when in use.
To avoid burns and scalds children should be kept away.
To reduce the risk of fire in the oven cavity:
a. Do not overcook food.
b. Remove wire twist-ties from paper or plastic bags before placing bag in the oven.
c. Do not heat oil or fat for deep frying. The temperature of the oil cannot be controlled.
d. Look at the oven from time to time when food is heated in disposable containers made of plastic, paper or
other combustible materials for signs of smoke or burning.
e. If materials inside the oven should ignite, or smoke is observed, keep oven door closed, turn oven off, and
disconnect the power cord, or shut off power at the fuse or circuit breaker panel.
To reduce the risk of an explosion or delayed eruptive boiling:
Your microwave oven is capable of heating food and beverages very quickly therefore, it is very important that you
select the appropriate cooking time and power level for the type and quantity of food to be heated. If you are unsure
of the cooking time and power level required, begin with low cooking times and power levels until the food is
sufficiently heated evenly throughout.
Additionally:
a. Do not place sealed containers in the oven. Babies bottles fitted with a screw cap or teat are considered
to be sealed containers.
b. Do not use excessive amount of time.
c. When boiling liquids in the oven, use a wide-mouthed container.
d. Stand at least for 20 seconds at the end of cooking to avoid delayed eruptive boiling of liquids.
e. Stir the liquid before and during cooking. Use extreme care when handling the container or inserting a spoon
or other utensil into the container.
This oven is for home food preparation only and should only be used for heating, cooking and defrosting food and beverage.
It is not suitable for commercial, laboratory use, or heating therapeutic devices eg. Wheat bags.
Never operate the oven whilst any object is caught or jammed between the door and the oven.
Do not try to adjust or repair the oven yourself.
It is hazardous for anyone other than a qualified service technician trained by SHARP to carry out any service or
repair operation. Especially those which involve the removal of a cover which gives protection against exposure
to microwave energy are very hazardous.
Do not operate the oven if it is not working correctly or damaged until it has been repaired by a qualified service technician
trained by SHARP. It is particularly important that the oven door closes properly and that there is no damage to:
(1) Door (warped), (2) Hinges and Latches (broken or loosened), (3) Door Seals, Sealing Surfaces and oven cavity
(buckled or deformed), (4) Burn marks on the door seal faces.
Do not bump, or catch utensils, loose clothes and your accesories on the door safety latches when removing food
from the oven.
Never poke an object, particularly a metal object, through a grille or between the door and the oven while the oven
is operating.
Never tamper with or deactivate the door safety latches.
Always use oven mittens 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.
Should the power supply cord become damaged, it must be replaced with a special cord supplied by a SERVICE
CENTRE APPROVED BY SHARP. And it must be replaced by a qualified service technician trained by SHARP.
If the oven lamp fails please consult your dealer or a qualified service technician trained by SHARP.
Avoid steam burns by directing steam away from the face and hands.
Slowly lift the furthest edge of a dish's cover and microwave plastic wrap and carefully open popcorn and oven
cooking bags away from the face.
Make sure that the power supply cord is undamaged, and that it does not run under the oven or over any hot surfaces
or sharp edges.
Do not place anything on the outer cabinet because the microwave oven will become very hot during the operation.
Do not store food or any other items inside the oven.
Make sure the utensil does not touch the interior walls during cooking.
Only allow children to use the oven without supervision when adequate instructions have been given so that the
child is able to use the oven in a safe way and understands the hazards of improper use.
Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.
This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental
capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction
concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.

SPECIAL NOTES
DO
DON’T
Eggs, fruits,
nuts, seeds,
vegetables,
sausages and
oysters
* Puncture egg yolks and whites and
oysters before cooking to prevent
"explosion".
* Pierce skins of potatoes, apples,
squash, hot dogs, sausages and
oysters so that steam escapes.
* Cook eggs in shells. This prevents
"explosion", which may damage the
oven or injure yourself.
* Reheat whole eggs.
* Overcook oysters.
* Dry nuts or seeds in shells.
Popcorn
* Use specially bagged popcorn for the
microwave oven.
* Listen while popping corn for the
popping to slow to 1-2 seconds.
* Pop popcorn in regular brown bags or
glass bowls.
* Exceed maximum time on popcorn
package.
Baby food
* Transfer baby food to small dish and
heat carefully, stirring often. Check for
suitable temperature to prevent burns.
* Remove the screw cap and teat
before warming baby bottles. After
warming shake thoroughly. Check for
suitable temperature.
* Heat disposable bottles.
* Overheat baby bottles.
Only heat until warm.
* Heat bottles with nipples on.
* Food with filling should be cut after
heating, to release steam and avoid
burns.
* Use a deep bowl when cooking liquids
or cereals to prevent boiling over.
* Heat or cook in closed glass jars or air
tight containers.
Liquids
(Beverages)
* For boiling or cooking liquids see
WARNING on page 2 to prevent

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Remove all packing materials from the oven cavity, (do not remove the waveguide cover), and the feature
sticker from the outside of the door, if there is one. Check the unit for any damage, such as a misaligned door,
damaged door seals around the door or dents inside the oven cavity or on the door. If there is any damage,
please do not operate the oven until it has been checked by a SERVICE CENTRE APPROVED BY SHARP
and repaired, if necessary.
2. Accessories provided
1) Turntable
2) Low rack
3) High rack
4) Combined operation manual and cookbook
3. Since the door may become hot during cooking, you should place or mount the oven so that the bottom of
the oven is 85 cm or more above floor. You should also keep children away from the door to prevent them
burning themselves.
This oven is designed to be used on a countertop, in a cabinet or built-in. It should not be installed in any area
where excessive heat and steam are generated, for example, next to a conventional oven unit. The oven
should be installed so as not to block ventilation openings.
For R-890N(S)/(W): Allow a space of at least 40cm on the top, 5cm on both sides and at the rear of the oven
for adequate air circulation. When installing in a cabinet, the minimum inside dimension of the cabinet should
be 620mm(W) x 709mm(H) x 536mm(D).
When building the oven into a cabinet or wall, a Sharp built-in kit model number EBR-47ST for R-890N(S)
and EBR-5000(W) for R-890N(W) are available which enable the microwave oven to be integrated within a
kitchen, the kits are available from your retailer. Read carefully the installation instructions for the built- in kit
before installation. This built-in kit has been tested according to Australian Standards. Sharp does not
recommend the use of any other built-in kit.
If the oven is to be positioned near a conventional oven, ensure that adequate space is allowed, and a suitable
heat shield is incorporated between the two to prevent damage to the oven and the built-in kit caused by heat.
WARNING: The electrical outlet must be readily accessible so that the unit can be unplugged easily in
an emergency.
4. Neither the manufacturer nor the distributors can accept any liability for damage to the machine or personal
injury for failure to observe the correct electrical connecting procedure.
The A.C. voltage must be single phase 230-240V, 50Hz.
5. This appliance must be earthed.
6. Operate the oven from a general purpose domestic outlet. If a generator is used, do not operate the oven with
non-sinusoidal outputs.
7. Before using top or bottom heater for the first time, operate the oven without food for 20 minutes using both
heaters. This will allow the oil that is used for rust protection to be burned off.

NOTES:
• The waveguide cover is fragile. Care should be taken when cleaning inside the oven to ensure that it is not
damaged.
• After cooking fatty foods without a cover, always clean the cavity and especially the grill heating elements
thoroughly, these must be dry and free from grease. Built-up grease may overheat and begin to smoke or
catch fire.
• Always operate the oven with the turntable fitted correctly. This promotes thorough, even cooking.
A badly fitted turntable may rattle, may not rotate properly and could cause damage to the oven.
• The turntable rotates clockwise or anti-clockwise. The rotary direction may change each time you start the
oven. This does not affect cooking performance.
Warning:
The accessories will become very hot whenever the top heater, bottom heater or convection symbols are lighted
in the display and use thick oven mittens when inserting/removing the food or turntable from the oven to
PREVENT BURNS.

CARE AND CLEANING
Disconnect the power supply cord before cleaning or leave the door open to inactivate the oven.
Before cleaning ensure oven cavity is cool.
OVEN INTERIOR:
• It is important to clean the interior of your microwave oven after each use.
• To clean the oven interior, use a mild detergent solution, such as washing-up liquid, with warm water on a soft
cloth.
• Heat up your oven regularly by using the grill. Remaining food or fat splashed can cause smoke or bad smell.
• Food and liquid splashes will build-up on the oven walls and ceiling. If grease, fat and food debris is allowed
to build-up in the oven interior it may overheat, smoke or even catch fire when next using the oven.
• Keep the waveguide cover clean at all times. The waveguide cover is constructed from a fragile material and
should be cleaned with care (follow the cleaning instructions above).
NOTE: Excessive soaking may cause disintegration of the waveguide cover. The waveguide cover is a
consumable part and without regular cleaning, will need to be replaced.
• Food will release steam during cooking and cause condensation inside the oven and door. It is important to
wipe the oven dry. A build-up of condensation will eventually lead to rust forming on the oven interior.
• Do not allow grease or dirt to build-up on the door seals or areas around the door. This may prevent
the door from closing correctly and may cause a leakage of microwaves (follow the cleaning
instructions below).
• Ensure the accessories are cleaned after every use with a mild washing-up liquid solution and dried. This will
prevent the build-up of grease and food debris. The accessories are dishwasher safe.
• Clean the oven at regular intervals and remove any food deposits. Failure to maintain the oven in a
clean condition could lead to a deterioration of the surface that could adversely affect the life of the
appliance and possibly result in a hazardous situation.
OUTER CABINET:
• Wipe the outside of the microwave oven with a mild detergent solution, such as washing-up liquid, with warm
water on a soft cloth.
• The control panel must be wiped clean and dried with the door open, therefore inactivating the oven.
DOOR:
• To remove all trace of dirt, regularly clean both sides of the door, the door seals and adjacent parts with a soft,
damp cloth.
• Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners or sharp metal scrapers to clean the oven door glass since they can
scratch the surface, which may result in shattering of the glass.
NOTES:
• Never use spray cleaners, oven pads or abrasive scourers as these damage the surface of the oven.
• A steam cleaner should not be used.
• Take care not to let soapy water drip through the small holes in the oven walls and the cavity floor. Excess
water spillage through these holes will cause damage to the oven interior.
• Slight tarnishing of the oven cavity, around the area of the grills, is likely to occur. This is normal and will not
affect the ovens performance.
Warning:

HELPFUL HINTS
GRILL COOKING
CONVECTION COOKING
1. Use thick oven mittens when removing the food or turntable from the oven to
PREVENT BURNS. Because the oven cavity, door, turntable, turntable
support, racks, dishes and especially bottom heater will become very hot.
2. Foods may be cooked either directly on turntable, or using the high or low racks.
LOW RACK
1. Use thick oven mittens when removing the food or turntable from the oven to
PREVENT BURNS. Because the oven cavity, door, turntable, turntable
support, racks, dishes and especially bottom heater will become very hot.
2. For best results, preheat to required temperature with the turntable in the oven.
Add food after preheating.
3. Metal cookware can be used. Round pizza trays are excellent cooking utensils
for cooking.

3. Metal cookware can be used.
During mix cooking some metal utensils may cause arcing when they
come in contact with oven walls or
accessory racks. To prevent arcing
when using a metal tin, place a heat
resistant dish (microwave safe glass
pie plate, dinner plate) between the
tin and the rack.

HELPFUL HINTS
MICROWAVE COOKING
1. ARRANGEMENT
Arrange foods carefully. Place thickest areas toward outside of dish.
Eg. Arrange vegetables in a shallow dish in the following way:
Hard Vegetables around the outside, Soft Vegetables
in the centre, Medium Vegetables in-between.
2. TURNING
Foods such as poultry and joints of meat should be turned over after half the
cooking time.
3. COVERING
Cover foods in the microwave if you would normally cover the food in your
ordinary oven, or to retain moisture. Cover foods such as Vegetables, Casseroles, or when Reheating.
Use to cover foods:
8. SIZE
Small pieces cook faster than large ones. To speed cooking, cut pieces
smaller than 5 cm so microwaves can penetrate to the centre from all sides.
For even cooking, make all the pieces the same size.
9. DENSITY
The depth to which microwaves penetrate food varies depending on the food's
density. Porous foods like minced beef or mashed potatoes microwave faster
than dense ones like steak or whole potatoes.
10. FAT AND BONE
Marbling within meat, or a thin, even layer of fat on a roast, speeds cooking.
Large fatty areas or excess drippings in dish attract energy away from meat,
and slows cooking. Centre bones do not affect cooking, but bone on the side
of meat conducts heat to the areas next to it.
11. STARTING TEMPERATURE
Frozen or refrigerated food takes longer to heat than food at room temperature.
Cooking times in this book are based on normal storage temperatures. Since
rooms, refrigerators and freezers differ in temperature, check for doneness at
the minimum time.
LID
PLASTIC WRAP
PAPER TOWEL
4. PIERCING
Pierce potatoes, eggs, oysters, tomatoes or any foods with a skin or membrane
to allow steam to escape.
TOMATO
12. QUANTITY
Microwave cooking times are directly related to the amount of food in the oven.
Because energy is absorbed by the food itself, one potato or a single piece of
chicken cooks rapidly. When the energy is divided among several items,
cooking takes more time.
13. CONDENSATION
Condensation is a normal part of microwave cooking. The humidity and
moisture in food will influence the amount of condensation in the oven.
Generally, covered foods will not cause as much condensation as uncovered
foods. Ensure that the ventilation openings are not blocked.
14.GENERAL
Your microwave oven is capable of heating food and beverages very quickly
therefore, it is very important that you select the appropriate cooking time and
power level for the type and quantity of food to be heated. If you are unsure of
the cooking time and power level required, begin with low cooking times and
power levels until the food is sufficiently heated evenly throughout.

5. SHIELDING
Shield using small pieces of aluminium foil to shield thin areas of meat, fish and
poultry or edges of cakes to prevent overcooking.

6. STANDING TIME
Standing time is important. After cooking or defrosting ensure adequate
standing time. This allows the food to continue cooking or heating. Refer to
cooking guides for each menu or according to manufacturers instructions.
7. STIRRING
Stir foods from the outside to the centre of the dish, once or twice during cooking
if possible.
Eg. Casseroles and Sauces.
