socket using an adaptor plug.
• If the plug or socket is loose or the power supply
cord is damaged, it must be replaced with a
special cord. The exchange must be made by an
authorised SHARP service agent.
• When removing the plug from the socket always
grip the plug, never the power supply cord as this
may damage the power supply cord and the
connections inside the plug.
• If the fitted mains plug to your oven is a rewireable
type and in the unlikely event of the socket outlet in
your home not being compatible with the plug
supplied, remove the plug and fit an appropriate
type, observing the wiring code given in `To replace
the mains plug’ on page 43.
If you wish to remove or replace the plug supplied,
ensure the plug is removed properly and not cut off.
• If the plug fitted to your oven is a non-rewireable
plug and in the unlikely event of the socket outlet
in your home not being compatible with the plug

MICROWAVING
Introduction:
Water, sugar and fat in food absorb microwaves which
causes them to vibrate. This creates heat by friction, in
the same way your hands get warm when you rub
them together.
Outer areas of food are heated by microwave energy,
and remaining portions by conduction. It is, therefore,
important to turn, rearrange or stir food to ensure
even heating. Where recommended allow food to
stand. This is not optional but necessary to ensure
thorough cooking and is particularly important for
dense food, such as joints of meat.
Microwaves pass through non-metallic dishes and
utensils and heat the food inside the dishes.
Microwaves are reflected by metal. The oven is lined
with metal and has a fine metallic mesh in the door to
prevent microwave leakage. Metallic dishes are not
suitable for microwaving. Only use utensils that are
suitable for microwave ovens.
(See suitable cookware, pages 20-21).
MICROWAVE POWER LEVELS
Your oven has 5 power levels. To choose the power
level for cooking, follow the advice given in the
recipe section. Generally the following
recommendations apply:
50P - (MEDIUM output = 400W) for dense foods
which require a long cooking time when cooked
conventionally, eg. beef dishes, it is advisable to use
this power setting to ensure the meat will be tender.
100P - (HIGH output = 800W) used for fast
cooking or reheating e.g. for casseroles, hot
beverages, vegetables etc.
30P - (MEDIUM LOW output = 240W Defrost
setting) to defrost, select this power setting, to ensure
that the dish defrosts evenly. This setting is also ideal
for simmering rice, pasta, dumplings and cooking
egg custard.
70P - (MEDIUM HIGH output = 560W) used for
longer cooking of dense foods such as roast joints,
meat loaf and plated meals, also for sensitive dishes
such as cheese sauce and sponge cakes. At this
reduced setting, the sauce will not boil over and food
will cook evenly without over cooking at the sides.
10P - (LOW output = 80W) For gentle defrosting,
eg. cream gateaux or pastry.
P = PERCENTAGE
To change the power level for cooking, enter the
required time and then press the MICROWAVE
POWER LEVEL key.
For example:
Power level: The microwave power level is varied
by the microwave energy switching on and off.
When using power levels other than 100P you will
be able to hear the microwave energy pulsing on
and off as the food cooks or defrosts.

GRILLING
When browning and crisping the surface of foods in a
casserole dish, the rack can be used if the container is
shallow enough. However, it is advisable to place such
containers directly on the turntable, allow a little extra
time to brown and crisp as desired.
The Grill heating element at the top of the oven cavity
has one power setting only. It is efficient and
economical.
The efficiency of the grill is assisted by the turntable
which rotates simultaneously to ensure even browning.
The grill is ideal for cooking bacon, gammon steak, fish
fingers and tea cakes.
Use the rack for grilling small items of food such as
bacon, steak and toast, turn over halfway through
grilling. Food can be placed directly on the rack or
placed in a flan dish or on a heat-resistant plate.
NOTE:
When first using the grill heater, smoke and odour
will be given off. To avoid this happening when
food is being cooked, heat the grill heater without
food for approx. 20 minutes.
Example:
To grill for 8 minutes.
1. To enter the grilling time, press
the 1 MIN key eight times.
2. Press the GRILL key
once.

Face & Hands: Always use oven gloves to remove food or cookware from the oven. Stand back
when opening the oven door to allow heat or steam to disperse. When removing covers (such as cling
film), opening roasting bags or popcorn packaging, direct steam away from face and hands.
Stir, turn &
stand
For even cooking stir, turn or rearrange food during
cooking. Where recommended, leave food to stand after
cooking or defrosting.
Initial and final
temperature of
food
The initial temperature of food affects the amount of
cooking time needed, eg. chilled food requires more
cooking than food at room temperature.
The temperature of the container is not a true indication
of the temperature of the food or drink. Cut into foods
with fillings, for example, jam doughnuts, to release heat
or steam.
Check the temperature of food and drink and stir before serving. Take special care when
serving to babies, children or the elderly. The contents of feeding bottles and baby food jars are
to be stirred or shaken and the temperature is to be checked before consumption to avoid
burns.
Composition
& quality
Food high in fat or sugar (Christmas pudding or mince
pies) requires less heating time and should be watched,
over-heating can lead to fire.
Good quality ingredients should be used for
microwaving. Economical cuts of meat are recommended
for casserole.

FOOD HANDLING & PREPARATION
Piercing Food with skin (such as potatoes, apples, fish,
chicken), or with membrane (such as the white and
yolk of eggs, including boiled eggs), must be pierced
in several places before cooking or reheating. If not,
steam will build up and may cause food to explode.
Note: Eggs in their shells and whole hard boiled
eggs should not be heated in the microwave
ovens since they may explode even after
microwaving has ended.
Arrangement Place thickest parts of food on the outside of the dish, for
example, the meaty ends of chicken drumsticks should be
placed on the outside of the dish.
Covering Fish, vegetables and certain other foods benefit from being
covered during microwave cookery, follow recommendations
where given and use vented microwave cling film or a suitable
lid.
Size & shape Food size and shape affect the amount of cooking time
needed. When cooking more than one portion of the same
food ensure they are of a similar size and shape.
Density & Food density and quantity affect the amount of cooking time
quantity needed, for example, potatoes require more cooking than
peas; four potatoes will take longer to cook than two.
Hygiene Food hygiene standards (storage, handling and preparation)
apply to microwaving. Always store convenience foods as
recommended by the food manufacturer and keep no longer
than the "Use By" date.
ADVICE FOR COOKING
WARNING - Always attend the oven when in use.
Carefully follow the SHARP Operation Manual at all times. If you exceed recommended
cooking times and/or use power levels that are too high, food may overheat, burn, and
in extreme circumstances, catch fire and damage the oven.
The microwave power level will default to 100P unless you press the MICROWAVE POWER LEVEL key to
reach the desired setting. Take care when heating foods with high sugar or fat content, for example,
Christmas pudding, mince pies and fruit cakes. See reheating charts in the cookbook section for guidance.
Before use, the user should check that utensils are suitable for use in microwave ovens.
Lids: Always remove lids from food jars and containers before you use them in the oven. If you do not, steam and
pressure will build up inside and the container may explode.
Do not place hot foods/utensils on a cold turntable, or cold foods/utensils on a hot turntable.
WARNING: Liquids and other foods must not be heated in sealed containers since they are liable to explode.

ADVICE FOR REHEATING
WARNINGS:
Oil & Fat: Never heat oil or fat for deep frying as this may lead to overheating and fire. Stand back
when opening the oven door to allow heat or steam to disperse. When removing covers (such as cling
film), opening roasting bags or popcorn packaging, direct steam away from face and hands.
Never heat liquids in narrow-necked containers, as this could result in the
contents erupting from the container and may cause burns.
• Remove food from foil or metal containers before reheating.
• Reheating times will be affected by the shape, depth, quantity and temperature of food together with
the size, shape and material of the container.
• To avoid overheating and fire, special care must be taken when reheating foods with a high sugar or
fat content, for example, Mince pies or Christmas pudding.
• Canned Potatoes should not be heated in the microwave oven, follow the manufactuers’ instructions
on the can.
Plated meals
Remove any poultry or meat portions, reheat
these separately, see below. Place smaller items of
food to the centre of the plate, larger and thicker foods
to the edge. Cover with vented microwave cling film
and reheat on 50P, stir/rearrange halfway through
reheating. Ensure food is thoroughly reheated before
serving.
Casseroles
Cover with vented microwave cling film or suitable lid,
reheat on 50P. Stir frequently to ensure even
reheating.
Poultry portions
Place thickest parts of the portions on the outside of the
dish, cover with vented microwave cling film and
reheat on 70P. Turn over halfway through. NOTE:
Ensure poultry is thoroughly reheated, before
serving.
Sliced meat
Cover with vented microwave cling film and reheat on
50P. Rearrange at least once to ensure even reheating.
NOTE: Ensure meat is thoroughly reheated before
serving.
Pies
Vegetables
Place pies in a flan dish. Reheat meat pies on
70P and fruit pies on 50P.
Cover with vented microwave cling film or suitable lid
and reheat on 50P. Stir at least once during reheating.

foil. After defrosting, wrap in foil and allow meat to stand
for 60 - 90 minutes, until thoroughly defrosted.
Poultry
Place in a flan dish, turn over at least 3 - 4 times during
defrosting, shield any warm areas with small, pieces of foil.
After defrosting, wrap in foil and allow poultry to stand for
60-90 minutes, until thoroughly defrosted.
NOTE: Do not defrost poultry with giblets.
Steak, Chops
& Chicken
Portions
Place in a flan dish, separate during defrosting and turn
over at least 2-3 times. Shield if necessary.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
OVEN INTERIOR
Clean the microwave oven cavity after each
use with a mild detergent solution on a soft
cloth, pay special attention to the
waveguide cover.
ACCESSORIES
Accessories should be washed in a mild washing-up
liquid solution and dried. They are dishwasher safe.
OUTER CABINET
Wipe the outer cabinet with a mild detergent solution on
a soft cloth. The control panel must be wiped clean
whilst the door is open, therefore inactivating the oven.
After Grill, Dual, AutoCook and Express Cook
modes the oven cavity, door, cabinet and
accessories will become very hot. Before cleaning,
ensure that they have cooled down.
Slight tarnishing of the oven cavity around the area of
the grill heater is likely to occur, this effect does not
indicate a problem.
Take care not to let soapy water drip through the small
holes in the oven walls and the cavity floor particularly
if the turntable and roller stay are removed. Excess
water spillage through these holes will cause damage
to the oven interior. It is important that the door seals
and sealing surfaces are kept clean at all times, wipe
regularly with a damp cloth.
WARNINGS• Do not allow grease or dirt to build up on
the door seals and adjacent parts as
this may prevent the door from closing
correctly and may cause a leakage of
microwaves. To clean use a mild
detergent solution on a soft damp cloth.
• Keep the waveguide cover clean at all times. If you
leave grease or fat in the cavity, it may overheat,
smoke or even catch fire when next using the oven.
• Never use spray cleaners, oven pads or abrasive
scourers as these damage the surface of the oven.
TROUBLESHOOTING
If you think the oven is not working properly there are
some simple checks you can carry out yourself before
calling an engineer. This will help prevent unnecessary
service calls if the fault is something simple.
Simply answer “YES” or “NO” to the following questions:
(Put half a cup of water in the oven, on the turntable
and close the door. Programme the oven to cook for 1
minute and select 100P.)
1. Does the oven lamp come on when it is cooking?
YES/NO
2. Does the turntable rotate?
YES/NO
3. Does the cooling fan work? (Check by placing your
hand above the air vent openings)
YES/NO
4. After 1 minute does the "beep" sound?
YES/NO
5. Is the water in the cup hot?
YES/NO
6. (Take the cup out of the oven and close the door. Set
the grill time for 3 minutes).
At the end of 3 minutes, does the grill heating
element become hot?
YES/NO
WARNINGS:
• It is hazardous for anyone other than a
competent person to carry out any
service or repair operation which
involves the removal of a cover which
gives protection against exposure to
microwave energy.
• The door seal stops microwave leakage during oven
operation, but does not form an airtight seal. It is
normal to see drops of water, light or feel warm air
around the oven door. Food with a high moisture
content will release steam and cause condensation
inside the door which may drip from the oven.
• Repairs & Modifications: Do not attempt to operate
the oven if it is not working properly.
• Outer Cabinet & Lamp Access: Never remove the
outer cabinet. This would be very dangerous due to
high voltage parts inside which must never be
touched, as this could be fatal. As your oven is not
fitted with a lamp access cover, if the lamp fails, do
not attempt to replace the lamp yourself, call a
Service Technician appointed by SHARP.
If you answer “NO” to any question first check that the
oven is plugged in properly and the fuse has not blown,
if there is no fault with either, check against the
troubleshooting chart on page 43.
