8. See door cleaning instructions on page 12 of this
product safety manual.
PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID POSSIBLE EXPOSURE
TO EXCESSIVE MICROWAVE ENERGY
A. DO NOT attempt to operate this oven with the door open since open door operation can result in harmful
exposure to microwave energy. It is important not to defeat or tamper with the safety interlocks.
B. DO NOT place any object between the oven front face and the door or allow soil or cleaner residue to
accumulate on sealing surfaces.
C. DO NOT operate the oven if it is damaged. It is particularly important that the oven door close properly and
that there is no damage to the:
1. door (bent)
2. hinges and latches (broken or loosened)
3. door seals and sealing surfaces.
D. The oven should not be adjusted or repaired by anyone except properly qualified service personnel.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
! WARNING
! WARNING
Liquids such as water, coffee, or tea are able to be
overheated beyond the boiling point without appearing
to be boiling due to surface tension of the liquid.
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 A
SPOON OR OTHER UTENSIL IS INSERTED INTO
THE LIQUID. To reduce the risk of injury to persons:
To avoid risk of fire in the oven cavity:
a. DO NOT overcook food. Carefully attend oven
when paper, plastic, or other combustible
materials are placed inside the oven to facilitate
cooking.
b. Remove wire twist-ties from paper or plastic
bags before placing bag in oven.
c. If materials inside the oven ignite, keep oven
door CLOSED, turn oven off and disconnect the
power cord, or shut off power at the fuse or
circuit breaker panel.
i)
ii)
Do not overheat the liquid.
Stir the liquid both before and halfway through
heating it.
iii) Do not use straight-sided containers with narrow
necks.
iv) After heating, allow the container to stand in the
microwave oven for a short time before removing
the container.
v) Use extreme care when inserting a spoon or
other utensil into the container.
d. DO NOT use the cavity for storage. DO NOT
leave paper products, cooking utensils, or food
in the cavity when not in use.
!
CAUTION
To avoid personal injury or property damage, observe the following:
9. When cooking with paper, plastic, or other
combustible materials, follow manufacturer's
recommendations on product use.
1. Do not deep fat fry in oven. Fat could overheat
and be hazardous to handle.
2. Do not cook or reheat eggs in shell or with an
unbroken yolk using microwave energy. Pressure
may build up and erupt. Pierce yolk with fork or
knife before cooking.
10. Do not use paper towels which contain nylon or
other synthetic fibers. Heated synthetics could
melt and cause paper to ignite.
11. Do not heat sealed containers or plastic bags in
oven. Food or liquid could expand quickly and
cause container or bag to break. Pierce or open
container or bag before heating.
3. Pierce skin of potatoes, tomatoes, and similar
foods before cooking with microwave energy.
When skin is pierced, steam escapes evenly.
4. Do not operate equipment without load or food in
oven cavity.
12. To avoid pacemaker malfunction, consult
physician or pacemaker manufacturer about
effects of microwave energy on pacemaker.
5. Use only popcorn in packages designed and
labeled for microwave use. Popping time varies
depending on oven wattage. Do not continue
to heat after popping has stopped. Popcorn will
scorch or burn. Do not leave oven unattended.
13. An authorized servicer MUST inspect equipment
annually. Record all inspections and repairs for
future use.
14. Clean oven regularly and remove any food
deposits.
6. Do not use regular cooking thermometers in
oven. Most cooking thermometers contain
mercury and may cause an electrical arc,
malfunction, or damage to oven.
15. To avoid surface deterioration, keep the oven in a
clean condition. Infrequent cleaning could
adversely affect the life of the appliance and
possibly result in a hazadous situation.
7. Do not use metal utensils in oven.
8. Never use paper, plastic, or other combustible
materials that are not intended for cooking.

•
•
Inspect oven for damage such as dents in door or inside oven cavity.
Report any dents or breakage to source of purchase immediately.
Do not attempt to use oven if damaged.
Remove all materials from oven interior.
If oven has been stored in extremely cold area, wait a few hours before
connecting power.
Microwave operation may cause interference to radio, television, or a similar
oven. Reduce or eliminate interference by doing the following:
• Clean door and sealing surfaces of oven according to instructions in Care
and Cleaning section.
• Place radio, television, etc. as far as possible from oven.
• Use a properly installed antenna on radio, television, etc. to obtain
stronger signal reception.
Oven Placement
•
•
•
•
Do not install oven next to or above source of heat, such as pizza oven or
deep fat fryer. This could cause microwave oven to operate improperly
and could shorten life of electrical parts.
Do not block or obstruct oven filter. Allow access for cleaning.
Install oven on level countertop surface.
Place warning label in a conspicuous place close to microwave oven.
(50 Hz models only)
Outlet should be located so that plug is accessible when oven is in place.
A
B
A—Allow at least 4" (10.2 cm) of clearance around top and sides of oven. Proper air
flow around oven cools electrical components. With restricted air flow, oven may
not operate properly and life of electrical parts is reduced.
B—Allow at least 4" (10.2 cm) between air discharge on back of oven and back wall.

DO NOT power spray
To avoid risk of electrical shock or
death, this oven must be earthed.

Grounding/Earthing
Instructions
Oven MUST be grounded.
Grounding reduces risk of electric
shock by providing an escape wire for
the electric current, if an electrical
short occurs. This oven is equipped
with a cord having a ground wire with
a grounding plug. The plug must be
plugged into an outlet that is properly
installed and grounded.
Consult a qualified electrician or
servicer if grounding instructions are
not completely understood, or if doubt
exists as to whether the oven is
properly grounded.
Do not use an extension cord.
If the product power cord is too short,
have a qualified electrician install a
three-slot receptacle. This oven should
be plugged into a separate circuit with
the electrical rating as provided in
product specifications (available on
Amana’s wavelink website). When a
microwave oven is on a circuit with
other equipment, an increase in
cooking times may be required and
fuses can be blown.
External Equipotential
Earthing Terminal (export only)
Equipment has secondary earthing
terminal. Terminal provides external
earthing connection used in addition
to earthing prong on plug. Located
on outside of oven back, terminal is
marked with symbol shown below.
