broken or loose door hinges and latches and dents inside the cavity or on the door. If there is any damage, do not
operate the oven and contact your dealer or SHARP AUTHORIZED SERVICER. See Installation Instructions for
more details.
Please read all instructions thoroughly before installing the Over the Range Microwave Oven/Hood
System. Two people are recommended to install this product.
If a new electrical outlet is required, its installation should be completed by a qualified electrician

This Microwave Oven/Hood requires a mounting space on
a wall as shown in Figure 1. It is designed to be used with
standard 12-inch wall cabinets.
15.5"
At least 2"
Backsplash
If the space between the wall cabinets is 36 or 42 inches, a
Filler Panel Kit can be used to fill the gap. The metal filler
panels come in 3-inch wide pairs. One set is needed for a
36-inch opening and 2 sets for a 42-inch opening. See page
15 for ordering information. The Filler Panel Kit should be
installed before the Microwave Oven/Hood is installed.

Figure 1
2 WALL CONSTRUCTION
This Microwave Oven/Hood 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.

UNPACKING AND INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
3 ELECTRICAL GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance must be grounded. This oven is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with a grounding
plug. It must be plugged into a wall receptacle that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with the
National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances. In the event of an electrical short circuit, grounding
reduces risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric current.
WARNING - Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of electric shock.
Electrical Requirements
The oven is equipped with a 3-prong grounding plug. DO NOT UNDER ANY
CIRCUMSTANCES CUT OR REMOVE THE GROUNDING PIN FROM THE PLUG.
The Power Supply Cord and plug must be connected to a separate 120 Volt AC,
60 Hz, 15 Amp, or more branch circuit, single grounded receptacle. The receptacle
should be located inside the cabinet directly above the Microwave Oven mounting
location as shown in Figure 2.
NOTE:
1. If you have any questions about the grounding or electrical
instructions, consult a qualified electrician or serviceperson.
2. Neither Sharp nor the dealer can accept any liability for
damage to the oven or personal injury resulting from failure to
observe the correct electrical connection procedures.
Figure 2

Receptacle
Radio or TV Interference
Should there be any interference caused by the microwave oven
to your radio or TV, check that the microwave oven is on a
different electrical circuit, relocate the radio or TV as far away
from the oven as feasible or check position and signal of
receiving antenna.

Power Cord
4 HOOD EXHAUST DUCT
When the hood is vented to the outside, a hood exhaust duct is required. All ductwork must be metal; absolutely do
not use plastic duct. Check that all connections are made securely. Please read the following carefully:
Exhaust connection: The hood exhaust has been designed to connect to a standard 3-1/4” X 10” rectangular
duct. If round duct is required, a rectangular-to-round adapter must be used.
Rear exhaust: If a rear or horizontal exhaust is to be used, care should be taken to align the exhaust with the space
between the studs, or wall should be prepared at the time it is constructed by leaving enough space between wall
studs to accommodate exhaust.
Maximum duct length: For satisfactory air movement, the total duct length of 3-1/4” X 10” rectangular or 6”
diameter round duct should not exceed 140 feet.
Figure 3
Elbows, adapters, wall caps, roof caps, etc. present
additional resistance to air flow and are equivalent to
a section of straight duct which is longer than their
actual physical size. When calculating the total length,
add the equivalent lengths of all transitions and
adapters plus the length of all straight duct sections.
Figure 3 shows the approximate feet of equivalent
length of some typical ductwork parts. Use the values
in parentheses for calculating air flow resistance
equivalent, which should total less than 140 feet.

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 pages 29 and 30 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. Ventilation openings
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 950 watts by using the IEC Test
Procedure. In using recipes or package directions,
check food a minute or two before the minimum time
and add time accordingly.

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
Children below the age of 7 should use the microwave
oven with a supervising person very near to them.
Between the ages of 7 and 12, the supervising person
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 26 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.

MANUAL DEFROST
If the food that you wish to defrost is not listed on
the DEFROST CHART or is above or below the limits in
the “Amount” column on the DEFROST CHART (see
page 25), you need to defrost manually.
You can defrost any frozen food, either raw or
previously cooked, by using Power Level for 30%.
Follow the exact 4-step procedure found under To
Set Power Level. Estimate defrosting time and press
POWER LEVEL pad eight times for 30% power.
Medium High
For either raw or previously cooked frozen food the
rule of thumb is approximately 4 minutes per pound.
For example, defrost 4 minutes for 1 pound of frozen
spaghetti sauce.
Medium
Always stop the oven periodically to remove or separate the portions that are defrosted. If food is not
defrosted at the end of the estimated defrosting
time, program the oven in 1 minute increments on Power
Level 30% until totally defrosted.

STOP/CLEAR pads. If easier, unplug the oven from the
electrical outlet and replug.
FAN
The fan will automatically start when heat rises from
range surface units or burners. This protects the microwave oven from excessive temperature rise. The fan
will stay on until the temperature decreases. It cannot
be turned off manually during this time.
Press FAN pad one time to turn it on and once again to
turn it off.
LIGHT
Press the LIGHT pad one time to turn it on and once
again to turn it off.

CLEANING AND CARE
Disconnect the power cord before cleaning or leave the door open to inactivate the oven during cleaning.
Exterior
Waveguide Cover
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.
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.
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.
Grease Filters
Filters should be cleaned at least once a month. Never
operate the fan or oven without the filters in place.
Touch Control Panel
1. Pull down slightly on the tab toward the front of the
oven and remove the filter. Repeat for the other filter.
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.
2. Soak the filters in a sink or dish pan filled with
hot water and detergent. DO NOT use ammonia or
other alkali; they will react with the filter material and
darken it.
Interior
3. Agitate and scrub with a brush to remove embedded dirt.
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 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.
4. Rinse thoroughly and shake dry.
5. Replace by fitting the filter back into the opening.
Odor Removal
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.
Turntable/Turntable Support
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.
