IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
READ CAREFULLY AND KEEP FOR FUTURE REFERENCE
WARNING : To prevent fire, burns, electric shock and other warnings: Listed below are, as with all
appliances, certain rules to follow and safeguards to assure high performance from this oven:
11. Do not use the oven for any reason other than
food preparation, such as for drying clothes,
paper, or any other nonfood items or for sterilizing
purposes.
12. Do not use the oven when empty, this could
damage the oven.
13. Do not use the oven cavity for any type of storage,
such as papers, cookbook, cookware, etc.
14. Do not operate the oven without the glass tray in
place. Be sure it is properly sitting on the rotating
base.
15. Make sure you remove caps or lids prior to
cooking when you cook food sealed in bottles.
16. Do not put foreign material between the oven
surface and door. It could result in excessive
leakage of microwave energy.
17. Do not use recycled paper products for cooking.
They may contain impurities which could cause
sparks and/or fires when used during cooking.
18. Do not pop popcorn unless popped in a
microwave approved popcorn popper or unless it's
commercially packaged and recommended
especially for microwave ovens. Microwave
popped corn produces a lower yield than
conventional popping; there will be a number of
unpopped kernels. Do not use oil unless specified
by the manufacturer.
19. Do not cook any food surrounded by a membrane,
such as egg yolks, potatoes, chicken livers, etc.,
without first piercing them several times with a
fork.
10. Do not pop popcorn longer than the
manufacturer's directions. (popping time is
generally below 3 minutes). Longer cooking does
not yield more popped corn, it can cause
scorchings and fire.
Also, the cooking tray can become too hot to
handle or may break.
11. If smoke is observed, switch off or unplug the
appliance and keep the door closed in order to
stifle any flames.
12. When heating food in plastic or paper containers,
keep an eye on the oven due to the possibility of
ignition.
13. The contents of feeding bottles and baby food jars
shall be stirred or shaken and the temperature
checked before consumption, in order to avoid
burns.
14. Always test the temperature of food or drink which
has been heated in a microwave oven before you
give it to somebody, especially to children or
elderly people. This is important because things
which have been heated in a microwave oven
carry on getting hotter even though the microwave
oven cooking has stopped.
15. Eggs in their shell and whole hard-boiled eggs
should not be heated in microwave ovens since
they may explode, even after microwave heating
has ended.
16. Keep the waveguide cover clean at all times. Wipe
the oven interior with a soft damp cloth after each
use. If you leave grease or fat anywhere in the
cavity it may overheat, smoke or even catch fire
when next using the oven.
17. Never heat oil or fat for deep frying as you cannot
control the temperature and doing so may lead to
overheating and fire.
18. Liquids, such as water, coffee, or tea are able to
be overheated beyond the boiling point without
appearing to be boiling due to surface tension of
the liquid. Visible bubbling or boiling when the
container is removed from the microwave oven is
not always present. THIS COULD RESULT IN
VERY HOT LIQUIDS SUDDENLY BOILING
OVER WHEN A SPOON OR OTHER UTENSIL
IS INSERTED INTO THE LIQUID.
To reduce the risk of injury to persons:
a) Do not overheat the liquid.
b) Stir the liquid both before and halfway through
heating it
c) Do not use straight-sided containers with
narrow necks.
d) After heating, allow the container to stand in the
microwave oven for a short time before
removing the container.
e) Use extreme care when inserting a spoon or
other utensil into the container.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

‘E’ or by the earth symbol or green-and-yellow. The
wire which is colored blue must be connected to
the terminal which is marked with the letter ‘N’ or
colored black. The wire which is colored brown
must be connected to the terminal which is marked
with the letter ‘L’ or colored red.
WARNING : The appliance must be earthed.
WARNING : Improper use of th earthing plug can
result in a risk of electric shock. Consult a qualified
electrician or serviceman if the earthing instructions
are not completely understood, or if doubt exists as
to whether the appliance is properly earthed.
If it is necesary to use an extension cord, use only
a 3-wire extension cord that has a 3-blade earthing
plug, and a 3-slot receptacle that will accept the
plug on the appliance. The marked rating of the
extension cord should be equal to or greater than
the electrical rating of the appliance.
INSTALLATION
3. Leave space behind and side
All air vents should be kept a clearance.
If all vents are covered during operation, the
oven may overheat and, eventually, oven failure.
6. Power supply
• Check your local power source. This oven
requires a current of approximately 10
amperes, 230~240V 50Hz.
• Power supply cord is about 0.8 meters long.
• The voltage used must be the same as
specified on this oven. Using a higher voltage
may result in a fire or other accident causing
oven damage. Using low voltage will cause
slow cooking. We are not responsible for
damage resulting from use of this oven with a
voltage of ampere fuse other than those
specified.
• If the supply cord is damaged, it must be
replaced by the manufacturer or its service
agent or a similarly qualified person in order to
avoid a hazard.
4. Away from radio and TV sets
Poor television reception and radio interference
may result if the oven is located close to a TV,
Radio antenna, feeder and so on. Position the
oven as far from them as possible.
7. Examine the oven after unpacking for any
damage such as:
A misaligned door, Broken door, A dent in cavity.
If any of the above are visible, DO NOT
INSTALL, and notify dealer immediately.
5. Away from heating appliance and water taps
Keep the oven away from hot air, steam or
Splash when choosing a place to position it, or
the insulation might be adversely affected and
breakdowns occur.
8. Do not operate the oven if it is colder than
room temperature.
(This may occur during delivery in cold weather.)
Allow the oven to become room temperature
before operating.

CARE OF YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN
The oven should be cleaned regularly and any food deposits removed.
Failure to maintain the oven in a clean condition could lead to deterioration of the surface that could
adversely affect the life of the appliance and possibly result in a hazardous situation.
1
2
Turn the oven off before cleaning.
6
Keep the inside of the oven clean. When food
spatters or spilled liquids adhere to oven walls,
wipe with a damp cloth. Mild detergent may be
used if the oven gets very dirty.
The use of harsh detergent or abrasives is not
recommended.
It is occasionally necessary to remove the glass
tray for cleaning. Wash the tray in warm sudsy
water or in a dishwasher.
7
The roller guide and oven cavity floor should be
cleaned regularly to avoid excessive noise.
Simply wipe the bottom surface of the oven with
mild detergent water or window cleaner and dry.
The roller guide may be washed in mild sudsy
water.
3
The outside oven surface should be cleaned
with soap and water, rinsed and dried with a soft
cloth. To prevent damage to the operating parts
inside the oven, water should not be allowed to
seep into the ventilation openings.
4
If the Control Panel becomes wet, clean with a
soft, dry cloth. Do not use harsh detergents or
abrasives on Control Panel.
5
If steam accumulates inside or around the
outside of the oven door, wipe with a soft cloth.
This may occur when the microwave oven is
operated under high humidity conditions and in
no way indicates malfunction of the unit.
ROLLER GUIDE
1
The ROLLER GUIDE and oven floor should be
cleaned frequently to prevent excessive noise.
2
The ROLLER GUIDE MUST ALWAYS be
used for cooking together with the Glass Tray.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
* Q : I accidentally ran my microwave oven
without any food in it. Is it damaged?
* A : Running the oven empty for a short time will not
damage the oven. However, it is not
recommended.
* Q : What does “standing time” mean?
* A : “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.
* Q : Can the oven be used with the glass tray or
roller guide removed?
* A : No. Both the glass tray and roller guide must
always be used in the oven before cooking.
* Q : Why does my oven not always cook as fast
as the microwave cooking guide says?
* A : Check your cooking guide again, to make sure
you’ve followed directions exactly ; and to see
what might cause variations in cooking time.
Cooking guide times and heat settings are
suggestions, to help prevent over-cooking... the
most common problem in getting used to a
microwave oven.
Variations in the size, shape and weights and
dimensions could require longer cooking time.
Use your own judgement along with the
cooking guide suggestions to check whether
the food has been properly cooked just as you
would do with a conventional cooker.
* Q : Can I open the door when the oven is
operating?
* A : The door can be opened anytime during the
cooking operation. Then microwave energy will
be instantly switched off and the time setting will
maintain until the door is closed.
* Q : Why do I have moisture in my microwave
oven after cooking?
* A : The moisture on the side of your microwave
oven is normal. It is caused by steam from
cooking food hitting the cool oven surface.
* Q : Will the microwave oven be damaged if it
operates while empty?
* A : Yes. Never run it empty.
* Q : Does microwave energy pass through the
viewing screen in the door?
* A : No. The metal screen bounces back the energy
to the oven cavity. The holes are made to allow
light to pass through. They do not let microwave
energy pass through.
* Q : Can I operate my microwave oven without
the turntable or turn the turntable over to
hold a large dish?
* A : 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.
* Q : Why do eggs sometimes pop?
* A : When baking or poaching eggs, the yolk may
pop due to steam build-up inside the yolk
membrane. To prevent this, simply pierce the
yolk with a toothpick before cooking. Never
cook eggs without piercing their shells.
* Q : Is it normal for the turntable to turn in either
direction?
* A : Yes. The turntable rotates clockwise or
counterclockwise, depending on the rotation of
the motor when the cooking cycle begins.
* Q : Why this standing time recommended after
the cooking operation has been
completed?
* A : Standing time is very important.
With microwave cooking, the heat is in the food,
not in the oven. Many foods build up enough
internal heat to allow the cooking process to
continue, even after the food is removed from
the oven. Standing time for joints of meat, large
vegetables and cakes is to allow the inside to
cook completely, without overcooking the
outside.
* Q : Can I pop popcorn in my microwave oven?
How do I get the best results?
* A : Yes. Pop packaged microwave popcorn
following manufacture’s guidelines. 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.
13
BEFORE YOU CALL FOR SERVICE
Refer to following checklist, you may prevent an unnecessary service call.

1. Check utensils. Metal containers or dishes with
metal trim should not be used.
2. Check that metal skewers or foil does not touch
the interior walls.
If there is still a problem, contact the service station.
A list of these stations is included in the oven.
CARE AND CLEANING
Although your oven is provided with safety features, it is important to observe the following:
1. It is important not to defeat or tamper with safety
interlocks.
i) Door(bent)
ii) Hinges and Hookes(broken or loosened)
iii) Door seals and sealing surfaces.
2. Do not place any object between the oven front
face and the door or allow residue to accumulate
on sealing surfaces. Wipe the sealing area
frequently with a mild detergent, rinse and dry.
Never use abrasive powders or pads.
4. The oven should not be adjusted or repaired by
anyone except a properly competent service
technician.
5. The oven should be cleaned regularly and any
food deposits removed.
3. When opened, the door must not be subjected to
strain, for example, a child hanging on an opened
door or any load could cause the oven to fall
forward to cause injury and also damage to the

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS
Utensil Guide
Only use utensils that are suitable for use in microwave ovens.
To cook food in the microwave oven, the microwaves must be able to penetrate the food, without being
reflected or absorbed by the dish used. Care must therefore be taken choosing the utensil. If the utensil is
marked microwave-safe, you do not need to worry. The following table lists various of utensil and indicates
whether and how they should be used in a microwave oven.

USE YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN SAFELY
Do not operate the oven if door seals or sealing
surfaces are damaged; or if door is bent; or if
hinges are loose or broken.
Do not operate the oven empty. This will damage
the oven.
Do not attempt to dry clothes, newspapers or other
materials in the oven. They may catch on fire.
Do not use recycled paper products as they may
contain impurities which may cause sparks or fires.
Do not hit or strike the control panel with hard
objects. This can damage the oven.
General Use
Do not attempt to defeat or tamper with safety
interlocks.
Do not place any object between the oven front
frame and the door or allow residue to build up on
sealing surfaces. Wipe with a mild detergent, rinse
and dry. Never use abrasive powders or pads.
Do not subject the oven door to strain or weight
such as a child hanging on an open door.
This could cause the oven to fall forward resulting in
injury to you and damage to the oven.
heating, if necessary, and ALWAYS stir after
heating.
To prevent eruptive boiling and possible scalding,
you should put a spoon or glass stick into the
beverages and stir before, during and after
heating.
Do not leave the oven unattended while popping
corn.
Do not pop corn in a paper bag unless it is the
commercially prepared Microwave Popcorn
product. The kernels can overheat and ignite a
brown paper bag.
Do not put packaged Microwave Popcorn bags
directly on the oven tray. Place the package on a
microwave safe glass or ceramic plate to avoid
overheating and cracking the oven tray.
Do not exceed the Microwave Popcorn
manufacturers suggested popping time.
Longer popping does not yield more popcorn but
it can result in scorch, burn of fire. Remember,
the Popcorn bag and tray can be too hot to
handle. Remove with caution and use pot
holders.
Food
Never use your microwave oven for home
canning. The oven is not designed for proper
home canning. Improperly canned food may spoil
and be dangerous to consume.
Always use the minimum recipe cooking time. It is
better to undercook rather than overcook foods.
Undercooked foods can be returned to the oven
for more cooking. If food is overcooked, nothing
can be done.
Heat small quantities of food or foods with low
moisture carefully. These can quickly dry out,
burn or catch on fire.
Do not heat eggs in the shell. Pressure may build
up and eggs can explode.
Potatoes, apples, egg yolks and sausages are
examples of food with non-porous skins.
These must be pierced before cooking to prevent
bursting.
Do not attempt to deep fat fry in your microwave
oven.
Always allow a standing time of at least 20
seconds after the oven has been switched off to
allow the temperature to even out, stir during
ARCING
If you see arcing, touch the STOP/CLEAR pad and correct the problem.
Arcing is the microwave term for sparks in the oven.
Arcing is caused by:
• Metal or foil touching the side of the oven.
• Foil not molded to food (upturned edges act like
antennas).
• Metal, such as twist-ties, poultry pins, or gold
rimmed dishes, in the microwave.
• Recycled paper towels containing small metal
pieces being used in the microwave.

MICROWAVING PRINCIPLES
Microwave energy has been used in this country to cook and reheat food since early experiments with
RADAR in World War ll. Microwaves are present in the atmosphere all the time, both naturally and manmade
sources. Manmade sources include radar, radio, television, telecommunication links and car phones.
HOW MICROWAVES COOK FOOD
Microwave oven is a Group 2 ISM equipment in which radio frequency energy is intentionally generated and
used in the form of electromagnetic radiation for the treatment of material. This oven is a Class B equipment
suitable for use in domestic establishments and in establishments directly connected to a low voltage power
supply network which supplies buildings used for domestic purposes.
▲
In a microwave oven,
electricity is converted
into microwave by the
MAGNETRON.
TRANSMISSION
Then they pass through the
cooking containers to be
absorbed by the water
molecules in the food, all
foods contain water to a
more or lesser extent.
▲
▲
REFLECTION
ABSORPTION
The microwaves
bounce off the metal
walls and the metal
door screen.
The microwaves cause the water molecules to vibrate
which causes FRICTION, i.e. HEAT. This heat then
cooks the food. Microwaves are also attracted to fat
and sugar particles, and foods high in these will cook
more quickly. Microwaves can only penetrate to a
depth of 4-5cm and as heat spreads through the food
by conduction, just as in a traditional oven, the food
cooks from the outside inwards.

COOKING TECHNIQUES
STANDING TIME
STARTING TEMPERATURE
Dense foods e.g. meat, jacket potatoes and cakes,
require standing time(inside or outside of the oven)
after cooking, to allow heat to finish conducting to
cook the center completely. Wrap meat joints and
jacket potatoes in aluminium foil while standing.
Meat joints need approx. 10-15 minutes, jacket
potatoes 5 minutes. Other foods such as plated
meal, vegetables, fish etc require 2-5 minutes
standing. After defrosting food, standing time should
also be allowed. If food is not cooked after standing
time, return to the oven and cook for additional time.
The colder the food, the longer it takes to heat up.
Food from a fridge takes longer to reheat than food
at room temperature.
LIQUIDS
All liquids must be stirred before and during heating.
Water especially must be stirred before and during
heating, to avoid eruption. Do not heat liquids that
have previously been boiled. DO NOT OVERHEAT.
TURNING & STIRRING
MOISTURE CONTENT
Some foods require stirring during cooking. Meat
and poultry should be turned after half the cooking
time.
Many fresh foods e.g. vegetables and fruit, vary in
their moisture content throughout the season,
particularly jacket potatoes. For this reason cooking
times may have to be adjusted. Dry ingredients e.g.
rice, pasta, can dry out during storage so cooking
times may differ.
ARRANGING
Individual foods e.g. chicken portions or chops,
should be placed on a dish so that the thicker parts
are towards the outside.
DENSITY
Porous airy foods heat more quickly than dense
heavy foods.
QUANTITY
Small quantities cook faster than large quantities,
also small meals will reheat more quickly than large
portions.
CLING FILM
Cling film helps keep the food moist and the trapped
steam assists in speeding up cooking times. Pierce
before cooking to allow excess steam to escape.
Always take care when removing cling film from a
dish as the build-up of steam will be very hot.
PIERCING
The skin or membrane on some foods will cause
steam to build up during cooking. These foods must
be pierced or a strip of skin should be peeled off
before cooking to allow the steam to escape. Eggs,
potatoes, apples, sausages etc, will all need to be
pierced before cooking. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO
BOIL EGGS IN THEIR SHELLS.
SHAPE
Even shapes cook evenly. Food cooks better by
microwave when in a round container rather than
square.
COVERING
SPACING
Cover foods with microwave cling film or a lid. Cover
fish, vegetables, casseroles, soups. Do not cover
cakes, sauces, jacket potatoes or pastry items.
Foods cook more quickly and evenly if spaced apart.
NEVER pile foods on top of each other.
19
DEFROSTING GUIDE
▶ Do not defrost covered meat. Covering might allow
cooking to take place. Always remove outer wrap and
tray. Use only containers that are microwave-safe.
▶ Begin defrosting whole poultry breast-side-down.
Begin defrosting roasts fat-side-down.
▶ The shape of the package alters the defrosting time.
Shallow rectangular shapes defrost more quickly than
a deep block.
▶ After 1/3 of the defrost time has elapsed, check the
food. Toy may wish to turn over, break apart,
rearrange or remove thawed portions of the food.
▶ During defrost, the oven will prompt you to turn the
over. At this point, open oven door and check the
food. Follow the techniques listed below for optimum
defrost results. Then, close oven door, touch the
START pad to complete defrosting.
▶ When defrosted, food should be cool, but softened in
all areas. If still slightly icy, return to microwave oven
very briefly, or let stand a few minutes. After
defrosting, allow food to stand 5-60 minutes if there
are any icy areas.
Poultry and fish may be placed under running cool
water until defrosted
➪ Turn over : Roast, ribs, whole poultry, turkey breasts,
hot dogs, sausages, steaks, or chops.
➪ Rearrange : Break apart or separate steaks, chops,
hamburger patties, ground meat, chicken or seafood
pieces, chunks of meat such as stew beef.
➪ Shield : Use small strips of aluminum foil to protect
thin areas or edges of unevenly shaped foods such
as chicken wings. To prevent arching, do not allow foil
to come within 1-inch of oven walls or door.
➪ Remove : To prevent cooking, thawed portions
should be removed from the oven at this point. This
may shorten defrost time for food weighing less than
3 lbs.(1350g).
