Microwaving ~ps
● Make sure all cookware used in
your microwave oven is suitable for
microwaving. Most glass casseroles,
cooking dishes, measuring cups,
custard cups, pottery or china
dinnerware which does not have
metallic trim or glme with a metallic
sheen can be used. Some cookware
is labeled “suitable for microwaving?’
If you are unsure, use this dish test:
Measure 1 cup water in a glass cup.
Place in oven on or beside dish.
Microwave 1-1Y2 minutes at High. If
water becomes hot, dish is microwave
safe. If dish heats, it should not be
used for microwaving.
● Paper towels, wax paper and
plastic wrap can be used to cover
dishes in order to retain moisture
and prevent spattering.
● Some microwaved foods require
stirring, rotating or rearranging.
Check your cookbook.
● Steam builds up pressure in foods
which are tightly covered by a skin
or membrane. Pierce potatoes, egg
yolks and chicken livers to prevent
bursting.

WARNING–TO
3
● To reduce the risk of fire in the
oven @vity:
–Do not overcook fd. CMeMY
attend appliance if paper, plastic;
or other combustible materials
are placed inside the oven to
facditate cooking.
–Remove wire twist-ties from
paper or plastic bags before
placing bags in oven.
—Do not use your microwave
oven to dry newspapers.
–Paper towels, napkins and
wax paper. Regcled paper
products can contain meti flecks
which may cause arcing or ignite.
Mper products containing nylon
or nylon filaments should be
avoided, as they may dso ignite.
–Do not pop popcorn in your
microwave oven udess in a special
microwave popcorn accessory or
unless you use popcorn labeled
for use in microwave ovens.
–Do not operate the oven w~e
empty to avoid damage to the
oven and the danger of fire. If
by accident the oven should run
empty a minute or two, no harm
is done. However, try to avoid
operating the oven empty at dl
times–it saves energy and
prolongs the life of the oven.
–Do not overcook potatoes.
They could dehydrate and catch
fire, causing damage to your oven.
–If materials inside oven should
ignite, keep oven door closed,
turn oven off, and disconnect
power cord, or shutoff power at
fuse or circuit breaker panel.
. Some products such as whole
eggs and sealed containers-for
example, closed glass jars—may
explode and should not be heated
in this oven.
Q Avoid heating baby food in
glass jars, even without their lids;
especially meat and egg mixtures.

m
MO~MT SAFETY mSTRUcTIONS (co~ti~u~)
* Don’t defrost frun beverages
in nm necked boties (especiWy
carbonated beverages). Even if
the container is opened, pressure
can build up. This can cause the
container to burst, resulting in
injury.
● Use metal only as directed in
cookbook. TV dinners maybe
microwaved in foil trays less than
3/4” high; remove top foil cover
and return tray to box. When
using metal in microwave oven,
keep rneti (other than metal
shelfl at least l-inch away from
sides of oven.
● Cooking utensils may become
hot because of heat transferred
from the heated food. Pot holders
may be needed to handle the
utensil.
* Sometimes, the oven floor can
become too hot to touch. Be
careful touching the floor during
and after cooking.
* Foods cooked in liqui& (such
as pasta) may tend to boil over
more rapidy than Ws containing
less moisture. Shodd this occur,
refer to page H for instructions on
how to clean the inside of the oven.
* Thermometer-Do not use a
thermometer in tied you are
rnicmving urdess the thermome@r
is designed or recommended for
use in the microwave oven.
● Remove the temperature
probe from the oven when not
using it to cook with, If you leave
the probe inside the oven without
inserting it in food or liquid, and
turn on microwave energy, it can
create electrical arcing in the
oven and damage oven walls.
● PWic utensils-Plastic utensils
designed for microwave cooking
are very useful, but should be
used carefully. Even microwave
plastic may not be as tolerant of
overcooking conditions as are
glass or ceramic materials and
may soften or char if subjected to
short periods of overcooking. In
longer exposures to overcooking,
the food and utensils could ignite.
For these reasons: 1) Use microwave
plastics only and use them in
strict compliance with the utensil
manufacturer’s recommendations.
2) Do not subject empty utensils
to microwaving. 3) Do not permit
children to use plastic utensils
without complete supervision.
● When cooking pork, follow
our directions exactly and always
cook the meat to an internal
temperature of at least 170°F.
This assures that, in the remote
possibility that trichina may be
present in the meat, it will be killed
and meat will be safe to eat.
● Boiling eggs is not
recommended in a microwave
oven. Pressure can bufid up inside
egg yolk and may cause it to burst,
resulting in injury.
Q Foods with unbroken outer
“skin” such as potitoes, sausages,
tomatoes, apples, chicken livers
and other giblets, and egg yolks
(see previous caution) should be
pierced to allow steam to escape
during cooking.
. ~$Bofiabl~” cooking ~uchm
and tightly cIosed plastic bags
should be slit, pierced or vented
as directed in cookbook. If they
are not, plastic could burst during
or immediately aRer cooking,
possibly resulting in injury. Also,
plastic storage containers should
beat least partially uncover~
because they form a tight seal.
When cooking with containers
tightly covered with plastic wrap,
remove covering carefu~y and direct
steam away from hands and face.
. spontaneous boiling—Under
certain special circumstances,
liquids may start to boil during
or shortly after removal from the
microwave oven. To prevent bums
from splashing liquid, stir the
liquid briefly before removing the
container from the microwave oven.
4
. Use of the shelf accessory.
--
—kmove the shelf from oven
when not in use.
–Do not store or cook with shelf
on floor of oven. Product damage
may result.
–Use pot holders to handle the
shelf and utensfis. They maybe hot.
–Do not use microwave browning
dish on shelf; the shelf could
overheat.
Have it installed and properly
grounded by a qu~fied installer.
See the special instigation booMet
packed with the microwave oven.
● The exhaust fan in your oven
will operate automatically
under certain conditions (see
Automatic Fan Feature, page
6). While the fan is operating,
caution is required to prevent
the starting and spreading of
accidental cooking fires while
the exhaust fan is in use. For
this reason:
–Never leave surface units
unattended at high heat settings.
Boilover causes smoking and
greasy spillovers that may ignite
and spread if vent fa is operating.
To minimize automatic fan
operation, use adequate sized
utensils and use high heat settings
ody when necessary.
—In the event of a grease fire,
smother flaming pan on surface
unit by covering pan completely
with well-fitting lid, cookie sheet
or flat tray.
–Never flame foods under the
oven with the vent fan operating
because it may spread the flames.
–Keep hood and grease filters
clean, according to instructions on
pages 16 and 17, to maintain good
venting and avoid grease fires.

Questiom and Answers
Q. I set my oven for the time
called for in the recipe, but at the
end of the time allowed, my food
wasn’t done. What happened?
A. Since house power varies due
to time or location, many time
cooking recipes give you a time
range to prevent overcooking. Set
the oven for minimum time, test the
food for doneness, and cook your
food a little longer, if necessary.
Q. I touched the number pads
and selected my power level. When
I touched START, however, my
oven didn’t come on. Why not?
A. The TIME COOK I or II pad
must be touched before setting the
number pads or else your oven will
not begin cooking.
Q. I want to cook on a power
level other than High. What do I
need to do?
A. To change the power level,
touch the POWER LEVEL pad,
then touch desired number for new
power level.
Q. Can I interrupt Time Cook to
check the food?
A. Yes. To resume cooking,
simply close the door and press
the START pad. The timer must be
reset for cooking to resume unless
time is remaining on timer.
Defrosting by ~me
Time Defrost is designed
for speedy thawing of frozen food
and is one of the great advantages
of a microwave oven.
Use Time Defrost to quickly
thaw foods such as bread, rolls,
vegetables, fruits and leftovers.
Auto Defrost is preferred for meat
and poultry because the oven sets
the defrosting time and power
levels for you.
● Power level 3 is automatically set
for defrosting, but you may change
this for more flexibility.
. See your cookbook for defrosting
help.
To become better acquainted with
Time Defrost, defrost a 10-oz.
package of frozen strawberries by
following the steps below.
Step 1: Place package of frozen
strawberries in the oven and close
door. Be sure package contains
no metal.
Step 2: Touch TIME DEFROST.
Display shows “: O“ and “POWER
3:’ “ENTER DEF TIME” flashes.
Questions and Answers
Q. When I press START, I hear
a dull thumping noise. What is it?
A. This sound is normal. It is
letting you know the oven is using a
power level lower than 10 (High).
Step4: Touch STA~. “DEF TIME”
shows and time counts down on
display. When cycle is completed,
the oven signals and flashes “End,”
then automatically shuts off.
Step 5: Turn package over, close
door and repeat Steps 2 and 3 to set
remaining half of defrosting time
and touch START.
Step 6: When oven signals and
flashes “End~7 open door, remove
package and separate strawberries
to finish defrosting.
Defrosting ~ps
● Foods frozen in paper or plastic
can be defrosted in the package.
Q For even defrosting, some foods
need to be broken up or separated
part of the way through the
defrosting time.
● Family-size pre-packaged
frozen entrees can be defrosted and
microwaved. If the food is in a foil
container, transfer it to a microwave
safe dish.
● Check your cookbook for other
defrosting tips.
How to Change Power bvel
After setting defrosting time,
touch POWER LEVEL pad,
then touch desired number for
new power level.
9
Q. Can I defrost small items in
a hurry?
A. Yes, but they will need more
frequent attention than usual. Raise
the power level after entering the
time by touching the desired power
level pad. Power level 7 cuts the
total defrosting time about in 1/2;
power level 10 cuts the total defrosting
time to approximately 1/3. During
either, rotate or stir food frequently.
Q. Why don’t the defrosting
times in the cookbook seem right
for my food?
A. Cookbook times are averages.
Defrosting time can vary according
to the temperature in your freezer.
Set your oven for the time indicated
in your cookbook. If your food is
still not completely thawed at the
end of that time, reset your oven
and adjust the time accordingly.
Q. Should all foods be
completely thawed before
cooking?
A. Some foods should not be
completely thawed before cooking.
For example, fish cooks so quickly
it is better to begin cooking while it
is still slightly frozen.
Q. Can I open the door during
Time Defrost to check on the
progress of my food?
A. Yes. You may open the door at
any time during microwaving, To
resume defrosting, close the door
and press START. The oven begins
operating if time is left on timer.
If not, reset timer.
Cooking by Temperature
Internal temperature is the best
test of doneness for many foods.
Temp Cook/Hold takes the
guesswork out of cooking because
the oven automatically switches
to Hold setting after reaching
the preset food temperature and
maintains that temperature for up
to one hour or until you touch the
CLEAR/OFF pad.

Cooking Tips
● Use a lower power level; it will
heat more evenly even though
requiring more time.
. Be sure frozen food has been
completely defrosted before inserting
probe. Probe may break off if used
in frozen foods,
● Use the clip to keep the probe in
place while heating.
● Cover foods loosely for moisture
control and quick, even heating.

Questions and Answers
Q. After I followed the steps
and touched the START pad,
“ERROR” flashed in the display
and a signal sounded. What’s
wrong?
A. “ERROR” flashes if you set
the temperature either below 90°F.
or above 199°F. The oven tells you,
between the flashing of “ERROR;’
what incorrect entry was made. To
re-enter, touch CLEAR/OFF pad
and begin again.
Q. Are there any foods I can’t
Temp Cook?
A. Yes. Delicate butter icings, ice
cream, frozen whipped toppings,
etc. soften rapidly at warm
temperatures. Batters, doughs and
frozen foods are also difficult to
cook precisely with the probe. It’s
best to time cook these foods.
Q. Why did “PROBE” flash on
the display after I touched the
START pad?
A. “PROBE” will flash if you
don’t seat the cable end of the probe
securely into the receptacle in the
oven wall or if you touch the TEMP
COOK/HOLD pad and forget to
use the probe.
Q. Can I leave my probe in the
oven if it’s not inserted in food?
A. No, if it touches the oven wall,
you may damage the oven.
Q. Can I Temp Cook different
portions of food at different
temperatures?
A. Yes. The temperature probe
gives you the freedom to cook
different portions of food at
different temperatures to suit
individual eating styles. Simply
place probe in food and change
temperature setting as needed.
How to Use the Minute/Second ~mer
The MIN/SEC TIMER has three
timing functions:
. It operates as a minute timer.
● It can be set to delay cooking.
● It can be used as a hold setting
after defrosting.
The MIN/SEC TIMER operates
without microwave energy.

Questions and Answers
Q. What will happen if I
accidentally reverse my defrost,
hold and cook instructions?
A. The oven will automatically
rearrange your program. Defrosting
will always come first, then hold,
and then the cooking function.
Q. Can I defrost and hold only?
A. Yes. Sometimes you may only
want to defrost a food, hold it, and
cook it later. All you need to do is
program in Time Defrost and
amount of time. Then program a
holding time (example in steps 4
and 5 at left). Be sure to put the
thawed dish in the refrigerator
promptly.
NOTE: Let foods remain at room
temperature only as long as safe.
Times will vary.
Q. I programmed my oven for
a specific defrosting time but it
defrosted longer than necessary.
What happened?
A. When instructions conflict,
the oven carries out the last
instruction. You may have set the
oven to Defrost for 4 minutes,
Hold/Time for 2 minutes, and then
Defrost for 6 minutes. In this case, the
oven would Defrost for 6 minutes
and Hold/Time for 2 minutes.

Automatic Roasting
Auto Roast uses the temperature
probe to cook to the desired
serving temperature. Unlike
Temp Cook/Hold, which uses a
single power level, Auto Roast
- up to 3 power settings which
automatically switch during
roasting, thus providing even,
tender cooking resulh without
overcooking.
Just as in conventional roasting,
only tender roasts should be Auto
Roasted until specified internal
temperatures are reached. Less
tender roasts should be microwaved
by time, according to the cookbook
which comes with your oven.

Automatic
Defrosting
With the Auto Defrost feature,
the oven automatically sets the
defrosting time and power levels
for you. You choose the appropriate
code number from 1 to 6 for the
food you are defrosting, then enter
the food weight in pounds and tenths
of a pound (See Conversion Guide
below) and touch START. The oven
calculates the defrosting time and
changes power levels during
defrosting to give even defrosting
results.
When the oven reaches approximately
half of the total defrosting time, the
display flashes “TURN;’ telling
you to turn food over and will not
continue defrosting until door is
opened and START is touched
again.
After defrosting time is complete,
the oven automatically goes into a
holding period as shown on the
Automatic Defrosting Guide on
this page. This holding period is
necessary to finish the defrosting
of the interior of the food.
How to Set Auto Defrost
N~E: Before you begin, check
the Auto Defrost code guide located
at the bottom of the oven when you
open the door. This guide shows

Care and Cleaning
Your new microwave oven is
a valuable appliance. Protect
it from misuse by following
these rules:
● Keep your oven clean and
sweet-smelling. Opening the oven
door a few minutes after cooking
helps air-out the interior. An
occasional thorough wiping with a
solution of baking soda and water
keeps the interior fresh.
● Don’t use sharp-edged utensils
with your oven. The inside and
outside oven walls can be scratched.
The control panel can be damaged.
c Don’t remove the mode stirrer
cover at the top of the oven
(microwave feature 6 on page 5).
You will damage the oven.
BE CERTAIN POWER IS OFF
BEFORE CLEANING ANY
PART OF THIS OVEN.
How to Clean the Inside
How to Clean the Outside
Walls, floor and mode stirrer
cover. Some spatters can be
removed with a paper towel, others
may require a damp cloth. Remove
greasy spatters with a sudsy cloth,
then rinse with a damp cloth. Do not
use abrasive cleaners on oven walls.
NEVER USE A COMMERCIAL
OVEN CLEANER ON ANY PART
OF YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN.
Door (inside). Window: Wipe up
spatters daily and wash when soiled
with a damp cloth. Rinse thoroughly
and dry.
Metal and plastic parts on door:
Wipe frequently with a damp
cloth to remove all soil. DO NOT
USE ABRASIVES, SUCH AS
CLEANING POWDERS OR
STEEL AND PLASTIC PADS.
THEY WILL MAR THE
SURFACE.
Special note when using
Brown ‘N Sear Dish: If grease
is present, high heat generated on
bottom of a Brown ‘N Sear dish
may cause the grease to burn onto
the oven floor. This may be removed
with a cleanser such as Bon Ami@
brand cleanser.
After using this cleanser, rinse
and dry thoroughly, following
instructions on can. Do not use it
on the painted surfaces such as the
walls—it may scratch the paint.
Automatic Temperature Probe.
Probe is sturdy, but care should be
taken in handling. Do not twist or
bend; avoid dropping temperature
probe.
Clean as soon after using as possible.
To clean, wipe with sudsy cloth, then
rub lightly with plastic scouring
ball if necessary. Rinse and dry.
(Or wash in dishwasher.)
Shelf Accessory. Your shelf
accessory is designed for use in a
microwave oven only; do not use in
a conventional oven. Do not use a
browning dish with the shelf.

Clean off the grease and dust
on hood surfaces often. Use a
warm detergent solution. About
1 tablespoon of ammonia maybe
added to the water. Take care not
to touch the filters and enameled
surfaces with this. Ammonia will
tend to darken metal.
Your microwave oven has two
reusable metal filters to help
remove grease from the air and a
disposable charcoal filter to help
remove smoke and odors caused by
cooking with your range. When the
fan is operated, air is drawn up
through the filters and then
recirculated.
The grease filters should be
cleaned at least once a month.
Never operate your hood without
the filters in place. In situations
where flaming might occur on
surfaces below hood, filter will
retard entry of flames into the unit.
The disposable charcoal filter
should be replaced when it is
noticeably dirty or discolored
(usually after 6 to 12 months,
depending on hood usage). Order
Part No. WB2X4267 from your
dealer. DO NOT CLEAN THIS
FILTER. DO NOT OPERATE
YOUR HOOD WITHOUT ALL
THREE FILTERS IN PLACE.
To remove grease filter, grasp the
“finger hold” on the filter and slide
to the rear.

To clean grease filter, soak,
then agitate filter in hot detergent
solution. Don’t use ammonia or
other alkali because it will darken
metal. Light brushing can be used
to remove embedded dirt. Rinse,
shake and remove moisture before
replacing. Filters should be
cleaned at least once a month.
Never operate your hood without
the filters in place. In situations
where flaming might occur on
surfaces below hood, filters will
retard entry of flames into the unit.
II
To replace grease filter, slide the
filter in the ~rame slot on the back
of the opening.
Pull filter upward and to the front
to lock into place.
To remove the charcoal filter,

To install a new filter, remove
plastic and other outer wrapping
from the new filter. Insert filter into
top opening of oven as shown. It
will rest at an angle on two side
support tabs and in front of right
rear tab.
Replace grill and secure with
3 screws.
Guide to Use of the Oven Shelf
Do not store or cook with metil
shelf on floor of oven. Product
damage may result.
● Use potholders when handling
metal shelf and cookware.
They may be hot.
c Do not store or use microwave
browning dish on metal shelf.
●
The two position wire shelf is
specifically designed for added
capacity heating and reheating in
your Spacemaker” microwave oven.
More than one food may be heated
or reheated and ready to serve at
the same time.
When microwaving with the oven
shelf, some techniques will differ
from the cookbook which came
with your oven. It is important to
arrange foods properly, and this is
shown on the next page. Cookware
size is important; select from among
the suggestions at right. Also, food
size should be considered; foods
over 3 Y2 inches high, or 3 pounds
are not recommended for shelf
cooking.
Batters and dough foods and also
uncooked foods which need to be
prepared from scratch should be
cooked without the oven shelf,
following cookbook directions.
Use pot holders when handling
foods heated together with your
oven shelf, especially when heating
larger amounts of food in 8-inch
square or other 2-quart size
casseroles. Extra steam generated
from multiple food cooking may
make cook-ware hotter tha~with
regular microwaving.
Cookware for Shelf
Heating and Reheating
Positioning the Shelf
Before placing food in the dishes,
check to see that they WN fit together
on or under the shelf. Also, be sure
cookware is microwave safe.
To insert shelf, tip the back slightly
and fit the shelf support guides onto
the support guides located on each
side of rear oven wall.
Next, lower the front until the shelf
support guides fit onto the support
guides located at each side of the
oven in the front.
When properly positioned, the
shelf should fit snugly in place.
Cookware for heating or reheating
include 1 cup measuring cup,
8x4x3-inch loaf dishes, 9x5x3inch loaf dishes or 9-inch pie plates.
Shelf has two positions. Use in low
position when heating two casseroles
or reheating frozen TV dinners or
entrees.
T~eftovers
may be placed in small
individual ceramic or plastic bowls
or divided plates.
L
Use wax paper or plastic wrap
instead of lids on casseroles. Lids
may add too much height to dish.
18
The high shelf position more
evenly spaces the area above and
below the shelf. Use this position
for heating plates of leftovers.
When properly positioned, the
shelf should fit snugly in place,
be level and not touch the back
wall of the oven.
If arcing occurs when using the
shelf to cook more than one food
at the same time, turn the oven off.
Make sure the shelf is positioned
securely on all four shelf suppoti
and not touching oven walls.
How to Heat or Reheat Similar~pes of Food
No plates of leftovers maybe
reheated together. Arrange thick
or dense foods to outside edges of
plate and cover with plastic wrap.
Microwave at High (10) for 2 to 3
minutes. Reverse position of plates
(top to bottom) and rotate 1/2 turn.
Continue microwaving at High (10)
for 2 to 3 minutes. Continue
heating, if necessary, until hot.
Reheating two casseroles (height
should be less than 3 ‘A inches) is
possible. Cover with plastic wrap.
Use staggered arrangements of
food, placing food on right side of
shelf and left side of floor. Refer to
Heating or Reheating Guide in
cookbook for suggested microwave
time per casserole and add the
times together. Microwave at High
(10) reversing position of foods (top
to bottom) after half of time. Also,
heat several small bowls of
leftovers this way, stirring and
reversing positions afier half of time.
~o frozen individual entrees
(5 to 7 oz. each) or two W dinners
(10 to ~ oz. each) are both ready to
serve at the same time. Remove
trays of food from their boxes and
turn back one corner of the plastic
cover to vent. If there are any foil
covers, remove them and return the
trays of food to their boxes. (Batter
foods should be removed from the
trays and cooked conventionally. )
Place in oven with one TV dinner on
right shelf and the second dinner on
left floor. Microwave at High (10)
for 7 minutes. Reverse positions
(top to bottom) and rotate foods 1/2
turn. Continue microwaving at
High (10) for 7 minutes. Check
dinners for heating. If one dinner
seems less done than desired,
return it to the box and continue
heating on shelf 1 to 2 more minutes.
How to Reheat Several Different ~pes of Foods Together
When heating several different
types of food together, foods which
should be served hot must be placed
on the oven shelf, while foods
which are only warmed should be
placed on the floor. This is because
microwave energy enters the oven
from the top only. Also, it is
important to remember that foods
absorb microwave energy at
different rates. Rates can be affected
by the size of the food, and its
starting temperature.
Because of the varying rates, you
may need to start reheating a large
or dense food a few minutes ahead
of time, then add other smaller or
less dense foods. Alternately, if
one of the foods you are heating
seems undercooked but the others
are heated satisfactorily, let the
underheated food continue cooking.
Heat or reheat different types of
food at High (10). To determine
heating times, add times for all
foods together. (See heating guide
in cookbook. ) After half of time,
stir or rearrange foods (do not
reverse positions). Check foods (top
shelf especially) after 3/4 of total
time and remove any which are
done. Continue cooking others.
19
Place on shelf large or dense
foods which need the most heating,
.
such as leftover fried chicken,
casseroles of canned or leftover
vegetables, rice or pasta. Place on
oven floor those foods which need
only be warmed, such as bakery
pies, rolls, muffins or breads.
