Questions and Answers
Q: Why is there noise coming from the turntable when the oven is turned on?
A: This noise occurs when dirt or residue food exists between the turntable roller
rest and cavity bottom. Frequent cleaning of these parts should eliminate
or reduce the noise.
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 turns on
and off to obtain lower 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 timer knob has not been rotated.
Q: Why do eggs sometimes pop?
A: The egg yolk may pop because of steam build-up inside the membrane.
Pierce the membrane with a toothpick before cooking it. Never microwave
eggs in the shell since they may explode.
Q: How are boil-overs avoided?
A: Use a larger utensil than usual for cooking. If you open the oven door or
bring back to "0" the timer knob, the food will stop boiling.
Be sure to disconnect the oven from the power supply.
Clean the inside of the oven after use with a slightly damp cloth.
Clean the accessories in the usual way in soapy water.
The door frame and seal and neighbouring parts must be cleaned carefully with a damp
cloth when they are dirty.
Wipe the oven inside and outside with a soft cloth and a mild detergent solution. Then rinse
and wipe dry. This should be done on a weekly basis, more often if needed. Never use
cleaning powders or rough pads. Excessive oil splatters on the inside top will be difficult to
remove if left for many days. Wipe splatters with a wet paper towel, especially after cooking
chicken or bacon.
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.
Special Care
For best performance and safety, the inner door panel and the oven front frame should be
free of food .
1) When the oven is out of use, or the food is taken out ahead of time, please set
time/weight knob back to "0".
2) When the cooking has to be stopped after cooking steps are set, just open the door
and door safety system will stop generating microwave. If remaining time is not used,
please reset time/weight knob to "0" before closing the door.
3) This oven works with microwave radiation, which heats up water particles in food in a
very short time. There is no heat radiation and therefore no browning. For this reason
this appliance is not suitable for drying objects.
4) Only food should be heated in this oven.
Before switching on make sure that the voltage of your electricity supply is the same
as that indicated on the rating plate.
This appliance may be fitted with a non-rewireable plug. If it is necessary to change
the fuse in a non-rewireable plug the fuse cover must be refitted. If the fuse cover is
lost or damaged, the plug must not be used until a replacement cover is obtained.
It is important that the colour of the replacement fuse cover corresponds with the
colour marking on the fuse.
If the plug has to be changed because it is not suitable for your socket, or becomes
damaged, it should be cut off and an appropriate plug fitted following the wiring
instructions below. The plug removed must be disposed of safely as insertion into a
13A socket is likely to cause an electrical hazard.
