IMPORTANTGROUNDING
This appliance 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 electrical current. This
appliance is equipped with a cord that includes a grounding wire
and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an outlet
that is properly installed and grounded. Plug the three-prong
power cord into a properly grounded outlet of standard 115-120
voltage, 60 Hz. Your oven should be the only appliance on this
circuit.
Safety
WARNING
Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of
electric shock. Consult a qualified electrician or servicer if
you do not understand the grounding instructions or if you
are not sure if the appliance is properly grounded.
Use of Extension
Cords
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risk of
becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. Longer
cord sets or extension cords are available and may be used if
care is exercised in their use. If a long cord or extension cord is
used:
1. The marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension cord
should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the
appliance.
2. The extension cord must be a grounding-type 3-wire cord
and it must be plugged into a 3-slot outlet.
3. The longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape
over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by
children or tripped over accidentally. If you use an extension
cord, the interior light may flicker and the blower may vary
when the microwave oven is on. Cooking times may be
longer, too.
WARNING
Do not cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the
power cord under any circumstances.
Note:
Connect the oven to a 20A circuit.
When connecting the oven to a 15A circuit, make sure
that circuit breaker is operable.
Liquids, such as water, coffee, or tea are able to be overheated
beyond the boiling point without appearing to be boiling. 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
THE CONTAINER IS DISTURBED OR A SPOON OR OTHER
UTENSIL IS INSERTED INTO THE LIQUID.
To reduce the risk of injury to persons:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Do not overheat the liquid.
Stir the liquid both before and halfway through heating it.
Do not use straight-sided containers with narrow necks.
After heating, allow the container to stand in the microwave
oven for a short time before removing the container.
5. Use extreme care when inserting a spoon or other utensil
into the container.

Setting Cooking Times & Power Levels
Your microwave allows you to set up to two different stages of cooking,
each with its own time and power level. The power level lets you control
the heating intensity from Warm (1) to High (0).
One-stage
Cooking
Some recipes require different stages of cooking at different
temperatures. You can set multiple stages of cooking with your
microwave. When convection is set with microwave cooking, the
convection is always followed after microwave cooking.
Cooking
For simple one-stage cooking, you only need to set a cooking time. The
power level is automatically set at High. If you want the power set at any
other level, you must use the Power Level button.
Follow steps 1 and 2 in the "One-Stage Cooking" section on this
page. The display shows "PRESS START OR ENTER NEXT
STAGE".
Use the Number buttons to set a cooking time. You can set a
time from one second to 99 minutes, 99 seconds. To set a time
over one minute, enter the seconds as well. For example, to set
20 minutes, enter 2, 0, 0, 0.

Convection
Cooking
Preheating
The convection mode uses dry heat to cook and brown foods. A highspeed fan circulates hot air inside the oven to heat food quickly and
evenly. Convection cooking is ideal for foods that require browning or
crisping coupled with a short cooking time. When cooking with the
convection feature, use the short metal rack to elevate food so that air
can circulate completely around the dish.

Glass and glass-ceramic bowls and dishes : Use for heating or
cooking.
Microwave browning dish : Use to brown the exterior of small
items such as steaks, chops, or pancakes. Follow the directions
provided with your browning dish.
Microwavable plastic wrap : Use to retain steam. Leave a small
opening for some steam to escape and avoid placing it directly on
the food.
Wax paper : Use as a cover to prevent spattering.
Paper towels and napkins : Use for short-term heating and
covering; they absorb excess moisture and prevent spattering. Do
not use recycled paper towels, which may contain metal and can
catch fire.
Paper plates and cups : Use for short-term heating at low
temperatures. Do not use recycled paper, which may contain metal
and can catch fire.
Thermometers
: Use only those labeled "Microwave Safe" and
follow all directions. Check the food in several places. Conventional
thermometers may be used once the food has been removed from
the oven.
•
•
Use
Aluminum foil : Use narrow strips of foil to prevent overcooking of
exposed areas. Using too much foil can damage your oven, so be
careful.
Ceramic, porcelain, and stoneware : Use these if they are labeled
"Microwave Safe." If they are not labeled, test them to make sure
they can be used safely. Never use dishes with metallic trim.

If you are not sure whether a dish is microwave-safe
perform this test:
Cooking
or not, you can
Techniques
Stirring
Stir foods such as casseroles and vegetables while cooking to distribute
heat evenly. Food at the outside of the dish absorbs more energy and
heats more quickly, so stir from the outside to the center. The oven will
turn off when you open the door to stir your food.
Fill a 1 cup glass measuring cup with water and put it inside your
oven, next to the dish you want to test.
Arrangement
Arrange unevenly shaped foods, such as chicken pieces or chops, with
the thicker, meatier parts toward the outside of the turntable where they
receive more microwave energy. To prevent overcooking, place thin or
delicate parts toward the center of the turntable.
Shielding
2
Shield food with narrow strips of aluminum foil to prevent overcooking.
Areas that need shielding include poultry wing-tips, the ends of poultry
legs, and corners of square baking dishes. Use only small amounts of
aluminum foil. Larger amounts can damage your oven.
Press the One Minute+ button once to heat them for one minute
at High power.
The water should be warm and the dish you are testing should be cool. If
the dish is warm, then it is absorbing microwave energy and is not
acceptable for use in the microwave.
oTurning
Turn foods over midway through cooking to expose all parts to
microwave energy. This is especially important with large items such as
roasts.
Standing
Foods cooked in the microwave build up internal heat and continue to
cook for a few minutes after the oven stops. Let foods stand to complete
cooking, especially foods such as roasts and whole vegetables. Roasts
need this time to complete cooking in the center without overcooking the
outer areas. All liquids, such as soup or hot chocolate, should be shaken
or stirred when cooking is complete. Let liquids stand a moment before
serving. When heating baby food, stir well and test the temperature
before serving.
Adding
Moisture
Microwave energy is attracted to water molecules. Food that is uneven
in moisture content should be covered or allowed to stand so that the
heat disperses evenly. Add a small amount of water to dry food to help it
cook.

Tips
Guide for Cooking
Dense foods, such as potatoes, take longer to heat than lighter
foods. Foods with a delicate texture should be heated at a low power
level to avoid becoming tough.
Altitude and the type of cookware you are using can affect cooking
time. When using a new recipe, use the minimum cooking time and
check the food occasionally to prevent overcooking.
Foods with a non-porous skin or shell, such as potatoes, eggs, or hot
dogs, should be pierced to prevent bursting.
Frying with heating oil or fat is not recommended. Fat and oil can
suddenly boil over and cause severe burns.
Some ingredients heat faster than others. For example, the jelly
inside a jelly doughnut will be hotter than the dough. Keep this in
mind to avoid burns.
Home canning in the microwave oven is not recommended because
all harmful bacteria may not be destroyed by the microwave heating
process.
Although microwaves do not heat the cookware, the heat is often
transferred to the ceekware. Always use pot holders when removing
food from the microwave and instruct children to do the same.

in Your
Vegetables should be washed just before cooking. Often, no extra
water is needed. If dense vegetables such as potatoes, carrots and
green beans are being cooked, add about ¼ cup water.
Small vegetables (sliced carrots, peas, lima beans, etc.) will cook
faster than larger ones.
Whole vegetables, such as potatoes, acorn squash or corn on the
cob, should be arranged in a circle on the turntable before cooking.
They will cook more evenly if turned over at half the cooking time.
Always place vegetables like asparagus and broccoli with the stem
ends pointing towards the edge of the dish with the heads toward the
center.
When cooking cut vegetables, always cover the dish with a lid or
vented microwavable plastic wrap.
Whole, unpeeled vegetables such as potatoes, squash, eggplant,
etc., should have their skin pricked in several spots before cooking to
prevent them from bursting.
For more even cooking, rearrange whole vegetables halfway through
the cooking time.
Generally, the denser the food, the longer the standing time.
(Standing time refers to the time necessary for dense, large foods
and vegetables to finish cooking after they come out of the oven.) A
baked potato can stand on the counter for five minutes before
cooking is completed, while a dish of peas can be served
immediately.

Keep the inside of the oven clean. Food particles and spilled liquids
can stick to the oven walls, causing the oven to work less efficiently.
Wipe up spills immediately. Use a damp cloth and mild soap. Do not
use harsh detergents or abrasives.
To help loosen baked on food particles or liquids, heat two cups of
water (add the juice of one lemon if you desire to keep the oven
fresh) in a four-cup measuring glass at High power for five minutes
or until boiling. Let stand in the oven for one or two minutes.
Remove the glass tray from the oven when cleaning the oven or tray.
To prevent the tray from breaking, handle it carefully and do not put it
in water immediately after cooking. Wash the tray carefully in warm
sudsy water or in the dishwasher.
Clean the outside surface of the oven with soap and a damp cloth.
Dry with a soft cloth. To prevent damage to the operating parts of the
oven, don't let water seep into the openings.
Wash the door window with very mild soap and water. Be sure to use
a soft cloth to avoid scratching.
If steam accumulates inside or outside the oven door, wipe with a
soft cloth. Steam can accumulate when operating the oven in high
humidity and in no way indicates microwave leakage.
Never operate the oven without food in it; this can damage the
magnetron tube or glass tray. You may wish to leave a cup of water
in the oven when it is not in use to prevent damage if the oven is
accidentally turned on.
If you have a problem
Remove any metallic utensils, cookware, or metal ties. If using foil,
use only narrow strips and allow at least one inch between the foil
and interior oven walls.
