Setting Up Your Oven
Microwave cooking principles
1. The microwaves generated by the magnetron are evenly distributed through the food as the glass turntable revolves.
This ensures that the food is cooked uniformly .
2. The microwaves are absorbed by the food up to a depth of approximately 1 inch (2.5cm). Cooking continues as the heat is
dissipated through the food.
3. Cooking times will vary according to the recipe and the density , weight and water content of the food. The cooking time will
also vary according to the temperature at the start of cooking, i.e. depending on whether the food is frozen or not.
Microwave Food packaging Symbols
Microwave Symbols:
On the front of your oven there is a microwave symbol, as shown . This
symbol has been introduced for your benefit when cooking or reheating
packaged food.
Packaged food is also increasingly using a microwave symbol similar to the one
below.
When you see this symbol on food packaging the cooking instructions are based
on either IEC Power Output Rating, on the Reheating Categories A,B,C,D or E.

Electric Shock Hazard
Touching some of the internal components
can cause serious personal injury or death.
Do not disassemble this appliance.
WARNING
Electric Shock Hazard
Improper earthing can result in electric shock.
Do not plug into an outlet until appliance is
properly installed and earthed.
Three pin earthed plug Properly polarised and earthed outlet.
This appliance must be earthed. In the event of an electrical
short circuit,grounding reduces the risk of electric shock by
providing an escape wire for the electric current. This appliance
is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with a earthing
plug. The plug must be plugged into an outlet that is properly
installed and earthed.
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
necessary to use an extension cord, use only a 3-wire
extension cord that has a 3 pin earthing plug, and a 3-slot
socket which will accept the plug.
1. A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risks
resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
2. If an extension cord is used:
a. The marked electrical rating of the extension cord should be
at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance.
b. The extension cord must be earthed, a 3-wire cord.
c. The extension cord should be arranged so that it will not
drape over the worktop or tabletop where it can be pulled on
by children or tripped over accidentally.

CLEANING YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN
Attention
Your microwave oven should be cleaned regularly to prevent grease and food particles from building up on the inside
surface. The accumulated grease / food particles may cause a fire hazard.
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.
It is suggested to place half a lemon in a bowl and add 300ml water inside the oven. Then heat it on 100% microwave
power setting for 10 minutes. Wipe the oven clean with a soft, dry cloth.
IMPORTANT:
ALWAYS switch off oven and unplug from power supply.
ALWAYS use a branded cleaning spray, and for stubborn spots inside the oven, spray a small amount of cleaner onto a damp cloth.
DO NOT SPRAY DIRECTLY INSIDE THE OVEN.
Removable Parts
1. The turntable may be cleaned at the sink. Be careful not to chip or scratch the edges as this may cause the turntable to break during
use.
2. The turntable roller rest should be cleaned regularly.
3. Do not immerse the turntable glass in cold water.
Special Care
For best performance and safety, the inner door panel and the oven front frame should be free of food residue. To prevent damage to
the operating parts inside the oven, water should not be allowed to seep into the ventilation openings.

Troubleshooting and maintenance
NORMAL CONDITION
Microwave oven interfering with TV reception.
Radio and TV reception may be interfered with when microwave oven is in operation. It is similar to the interference of small electrical
appliances such as food mixers, vacuum cleaners and electric fans. This is normal.
Oven light dim.
In low power microwave cooking, oven light may become dim. This is normal.
Steam accumulating on door, hot air out of vents.
In cooking, steam may come out of food. Most will come out from vents but some may condense on cool places such as the oven door.
This is normal.
Oven started accidentally with no food in.
Although starting the oven with no food in it should be avoided, it does no damage to the oven provided it is only operated empty for a
very short time. It is advised that a glass or microwave safe container of water is always left in the oven to absorb any heat should the
oven be turned on accidentally.

Questions and Answers
Q: When the oven is plugged into a wall outlet for the first time, it does not work properly. What's wrong?
A: The microcomputer used in the oven control may temporarily become scrambled and fail to function as programmed. Unplug the
oven from the wall outlet and then plug it back in. The microcomputer will then reset for proper functioning.
Q: Why is there noise coming from the oven when using a lower power level?
A: When cooking with power other than 100%, the oven automatically switches on and off to obtain the correct power output. The
clicking noise can be heard when the oven switches on and off . This is normal
Q: Why is there steam coming out of the air exhaust vent?
A: Steam is produced during cooking. The microwave oven has been made to vent this steam.
Q: What is wrong when the oven light will not glow?
A: There may be several reasons why the oven light will not glow. The light bulb has burned out or ST ART has not been pressed.
Q: Why do eggs sometimes burst?
A: The egg yolk may burst because of steam build-up inside the membrane. Pierce the membrane with a toothpick before cooking it.
Never microwave eggs in the the shell as they may explode.
Q: How is boiling over avoided?
A: Use a larger utensil than usual for cooking. If you open the oven door or touch STOP/CLEAR, the food will stop boiling.
