– SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS –
PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID POSSIBLE EXPOSURE TO
EXCESSIVE MICROWAVE ENERGY
(a) Do not attempt to operate this oven with the
door open since open-door operation can result
in harmful exposure to microwave energy. It is
important not to defeat or tamper with the safety
interlocks.
(b)Do not place any object between the oven front
face and the door or allow soil or cleaner residue
to accumulate on sealing surfaces.
4
(c) Do not operate the oven if it is damaged. It is
particularly important that the oven door close
properly and that there is no damage to the:
(1) door (bent),
(2) hinges and latches (broken or loosened),
(3) door seals and sealing surfaces.
(d) The oven should not be adjusted or repaired by
anyone except properly qualified service personnel.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Before you begin operating the oven, carefully read the following instructions.
1. Empty the microwave oven and clean inside it with
a soft, damp cloth. Check for damage such as a
door that isn’t lined up correctly, damage around
the door, or dents inside the oven or on the
exterior. If there is any damage, do not operate the
oven until an authorized service technician has
checked it and made any needed repairs.
2. Put the oven on a cart, counter, table, or shelf that is
strong enough to hold the oven and the food and
utensils you put in it. (The control side of the unit
is the heavy side. Use care when handling the
oven.) The weight of the oven is about 40 lbs. The
microwave oven should be at a temperature above
50°F for proper operation.
NOTE: (for model MT1130SG only) You can build
your microwave oven into a wall or cabinet by using
one of the trim kits listed in the “Built-in kits” section.
NOTE: Do not block the exhaust vents or air intake
openings. Allow a few inches of space at the back
and side of the oven where the exhaust vents are
located. Blocking the exhaust vents could cause
damage to the oven and poor cooking results. Make
sure the microwave oven legs are in place to ensure
proper airflow. If vents are blocked, a sensitive
thermal safety device automatically turns the oven off.
The oven will not work until it has cooled.

source without a UL approved trim kit.
Doing so can result in death, fire,
or electrical shock.
Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can
result in death, fire, or electrical shock.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS (CONT.)
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
For all cord connected appliances:
The microwave oven must be grounded. In the event
of an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces the
risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire
for the electric current. The microwave 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.
WARNING – Improper use of the grounding can
result in a risk of electric shock.
Consult a qualified electrician or serviceman if the
grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if doubt exists as to whether the
microwave oven is properly grounded.
6
Do not use an extension cord. If the power supply
cord is too short, have a qualified electrician or
serviceman install an outlet near the microwave oven.
For a permanently connected appliance:
The microwave oven must be connected to a
grounded, metallic, permanent wiring system, or an
equipment grounding conductor should be run with
the circuit conductors and connected to the
equipment grounding terminal or lead on the
microwave oven.
GETTING TO KNOW YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN
This section discusses the concepts behind microwave cooking. It also shows you the basics
you need to know to operate your microwave oven. Please read this information before you use
your oven.
HOW YOUR MICROWAVE
RADIO INTERFERENCE
OVEN WORKS
Microwave ovens are safe. Microwave energy is not
hot. It causes food to make its own heat, and it’s this
heat that cooks the food.
Microwaves are like TV waves, radio waves, or light
waves. You cannot see them, but you can see what
they do.
A magnetron in the microwave oven produces
microwaves. The microwaves move into the oven
where they contact food as it turns on the turntable.
The glass turntable of your microwave oven lets
microwaves pass through. Then they bounce off a
metal floor, back through the glass turntable, and are
absorbed by the food.
Magnetron
Metal floor
Oven cavity
Glass turntable
Microwaves pass through most glass, paper, and
plastics without heating them so food absorbs the
energy. Microwaves bounce off metal containers so
food does not absorb the energy.
Using your microwave oven may cause interference to
your radio, TV, or similar equipment. When there is
interference, you can reduce it or remove it by:
• Cleaning the door and sealing surfaces of the oven.
• Adjusting the receiving antenna of the radio or
television.
• Moving the receiver away from the microwave oven.
• Plugging the microwave oven into a different outlet
so that the microwave oven and receiver are on
different branch circuits.
FOR THE BEST COOKING RESULTS
• Always cook food for the shortest cooking time
recommended. Check to see how the food is
cooking. If needed, touch ADD MINUTE while the
oven is operating or after the cooking cycle is over
(see the “Using add minute” section).
• Stir, turn over, or rearrange the food being cooked
about halfway through the cooking time for all recipes.
This will help make sure the food is evenly cooked.
• If you do not have a cover for a dish, use wax
paper, or microwave-approved paper towels or
plastic wrap. Remember to turn back a corner of the
plastic wrap to vent steam during cooking.
TESTING YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN
To test the oven put about 1 cup of cold water in a
glass container in the oven. Close the door. Make sure
it latches. Cook at 100% power for 2 minutes. When
the time is up, the water should be heated.
7
GETTING TO KNOW YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN
TESTING YOUR DINNERWARE
•
OR COOKWARE
Test dinnerware or cookware before using.
To test a dish for safe use, put it into the oven
with a cup of water beside it. Cook at 100% cook
power for one minute. If the dish gets hot and water
stays cool, do not use it. Some dishes (melamine,
some ceramic dinnerware, etc.) absorb microwave
energy, becoming too hot to handle and slowing
cooking times. Cooking in metal containers not designed for microwave use could damage the oven, as
could containers with hidden metal (twist-ties, foil
lining, staples, metallic glaze or trim).

OPERATING SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
8
Never lean on the door or allow a child to swing on
it when the door is open.
Use hot pads. Microwave energy does not heat
containers, but the heat from the food can make the
container hot.
Do not use newspaper or other printed paper in the
oven.
Do not dry flowers, fruit, herbs, wood, paper,
gourds, or clothes in the oven.
Do not start a microwave oven when it is empty.
Product life may be shortened. If you practice
programming the oven, put a container of water in
the oven. It is normal for the oven door to look
wavy after the oven has been running for a while.
Do not try to melt paraffin wax in the oven. Paraffin
wax will not melt in a microwave oven because it
allows microwaves to pass through it.
Do not operate the microwave oven unless the
glass turntable is securely in place and can rotate
freely. The turntable can rotate in either direction.
Make sure the turntable is correct-side up in the
oven. Handle your turntable with care when
removing it from the oven to avoid possibly breaking it. If your turntable cracks or breaks, contact
your dealer for a replacement.
When you use a browning dish, the browning
dish bottom must be at least 3⁄16 inch above the
turntable. Follow the directions supplied with the
browning dish.
•
•
Never cook or reheat a whole egg inside the
shell. Steam buildup in whole eggs may cause
them to burst, and possibly damage the oven.
Slice hard-boiled eggs before heating. In rare
cases, poached eggs have been known to explode.
Cover poached eggs and allow a standing time of
one minute before cutting into them.
For best results, stir any liquid several times
during heating or reheating. Liquids heated in
certain containers (especially containers shaped like
cylinders) may become overheated. The liquid may
splash out with a loud noise during or after heating
or when adding ingredients (coffee granules, tea
bags, etc.). This can harm the oven.
Microwaves may not reach the center of a roast.
The heat spreads to the center from the outer,
cooked areas just as in regular oven cooking. This is
one of the reasons for letting some foods (for
example, roasts or baked potatoes) stand for a while
after cooking, or for stirring some foods during the
cooking time.
Do not deep fry in the oven. Microwavable
utensils are not suitable and it is difficult to maintain
appropriate deep-frying temperatures.
Do not overcook potatoes. At the end of the recommended cooking time, potatoes should be
slightly firm because they will continue cooking
during standing time. After microwaving, let potatoes stand for 5 minutes. They will finish cooking
while standing.
ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
If your electric power line or outlet voltage is less
than 110 volts, cooking times may be longer. Have a
qualified electrician check your electrical system.

You are probably used to food weights as being in
pounds and ounces that are fractions of a pound (for
example, 4 ounces equals 1⁄4 pound). However, in order
to enter food weight in AUTO DEFROST, you must
specify pounds and tenths of a pound.
If the weight on the food package is in fractions of a

DEFROSTING TIPS
• 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).
• Before starting, make sure you have removed any of
the metal twist-ties which often come with frozen food
bags, and replace them with strings or elastic bands.
• Open containers such as cartons before they are
placed in the oven.
• Always slit or pierce plastic pouches or packaging.
• If food is foil wrapped, remove foil and place it in a
suitable container.
• Slit the skins, if any, of frozen food such as sausage.
• Bend plastic pouches of food to ensure even
defrosting.
• Always underestimate defrosting time. If defrosted
food is still icy in the center, return it to the
microwave oven for more defrosting.
• The length of defrosting time varies according to
how solidly the food is frozen.
• The shape of the package affects how quickly
food will defrost. Shallow packages will defrost
more quickly than a deep block.
• As food begins to defrost, separate the pieces.
Separated pieces defrost more easily.
• Use small pieces of aluminum foil to shield parts
of food such as chicken wings, leg tips, fish tails, or
areas that start to get warm. Make sure the foil
does not touch the sides, top, or bottom of the
oven. The foil can damage the oven lining.
• For better results, let food stand after defrosting.
(For more information on standing time, see “Microwave cooking tips” in the “Cooking Guide” section.)
• Turn over food during defrosting or standing time.
Break apart and remove food as required.

you prepare, the time it takes to cook that food will
also change. For example, if you double a recipe,
add a little more than half the original cooking time.
Check for doneness and, if necessary, add more
time in small increments.
Starting temperature of food
• The lower the temperature of the food being put
into the microwave oven, the longer it takes to cook.
Food at room temperature will be reheated more
quickly than food at refrigerator temperature.
•
ing time after defrosting and cooking allows the
temperature to evenly spread throughout the food,
improving the cooking results.
The length of the standing time depends on how
much food you are cooking and how dense it is.
Sometimes it can be as short as the time it takes
you to remove the food from the oven and take it to
the serving table. However, with larger, denser food,
the standing time may be as long as 10 minutes.
Arranging food
For best results, place food evenly on the plate. You
can do this in several ways:
• Food with a lot of fat and sugar will be heated

CARING FOR YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN
To make sure your microwave oven looks good and works well for a long time, you should
maintain it properly. For proper care, please follow these instructions carefully.
For interior surfaces: Wash often with warm, sudsy
water and a sponge or soft cloth. Use only mild, nonabrasive soaps or a mild detergent. Be sure to keep
the areas clean where the door and oven frame
touch when closed. Wipe well with clean water. Over
time, stains can occur on the surfaces as the result of
food particles spattering during cooking. This is normal.
For stubborn soil, boil a cup of water in the oven for
2 or 3 minutes. Steam will soften the soil. To get rid of
odors inside the oven, boil a cup of water with lemon
juice or vinegar.
For exterior surfaces and control panel: Use a
soft cloth with spray glass cleaner. Apply the spray
glass cleaner to the soft cloth; do not spray directly
on the oven.
24
NOTE: Abrasive cleansers, steel-wool pads,
gritty wash cloths, some paper towels, etc., can
damage the control panel and the interior and exterior
oven surfaces.
To clean turntable and turntable support, wash in
mild, sudsy water; for heavily soiled areas use a mild
cleanser and scouring sponge. The turntable and
turntable support are dishwasher-safe.
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
QUESTIONS
ANSWERS
Can I operate my microwave oven without the
turntable or turn the turntable over to hold a
large dish?
No. If you remove or turn over the turntable, you
will get poor cooking results. Dishes used in
your oven must fit on the turntable.
Can I use a rack in my microwave oven so that I
may reheat or cook on two levels at a time?
You can use a rack only if the rack is supplied
with your microwave oven. If you use a rack not
supplied with the microwave oven, you can get
poor cooking performance and/or arcing.
Can I use either metal or aluminum pans in my
microwave oven?
You can use aluminum foil for shielding (use small,
flat pieces), small skewers, and shallow foil trays (if
tray is not taller than 1.9 cm [3⁄4 inch] deep and half
filled with food to absorb microwave energy).
Never allow metal to touch walls or door.
Is it normal for the turntable to turn in
either direction?
Yes. The turntable rotates clockwise or counterclockwise, depending on the rotation of the
motor when the cooking cycle begins.
Sometimes the door of my microwave oven appears wavy. Is this normal?
This appearance is normal and does not affect the
operation of your oven.
What are the humming noises that I hear when my
microwave oven is operating?
You may hear the sound of the transformer when
the magnetron tube cycles on.
Why does the dish become hot when I microwave
food in it? I thought that this should not happen.
As the food becomes hot it will conduct the heat
to the dish. Be prepared to use hot pads to
remove food after cooking.
What does “standing time” mean?
“Standing time” means that food should be
removed from the oven and covered for additional
time to allow it to finish cooking. This frees the
oven for other cooking.
Why does steam come out of the air exhaust vent?
Steam is normally produced during cooking. The
microwave oven has been designed to vent this
steam out the vents.
Can I pop popcorn in my microwave oven?
How do I get the best results?
Yes. Pop packaged microwave popcorn
following manufacturer’s guidelines or use the preset POPCORN pad. Do not use regular paper
bags. Use the “listening test” by stopping the
oven as soon as the popping slows to a “pop”
every 1 or 2 seconds. Do not repop unpopped kernels. Do not pop popcorn in glass cookware.
