POSSIBLE EXPOSURE TO
EXCESSIVE MICROWAVE
NERGY:
E
(a) Do not attempt to operate this oven with the door open
When using any electrical appliance, basic safety precautions
should be followed, including the following:
WARNING
To reduce risk of burns, electric shock, fire, personal
injury or exposure to excessive microwave energy:
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 front face of the oven
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 or dented),
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.
• Read all safety instructions before using the appliance.
• Read and follow the specific “Precautions to Avoid Possible Exposure
to Excessive Microwave Energy” on this page.

IMPORTANT GROUNDING
INSTRUCTIONS
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 counter top 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.
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.
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.
WARNING
Do not cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the
power cord under any circumstances.

Cooking Instructions
Not Recommended
Cooking Utensils
•
Recommended Use
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
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.
•
•
•
Glass jars and bottles — Regular glass is too thin to be used in a
microwave, and can shatter.
Paper bags — These are a fire hazard, except for popcorn bags that
are designed for microwave use.
Styrofoam plates and cups — These can melt and leave an
unhealthy residue on food.
Plastic storage and food containers — Containers such as
margarine tubs can melt in the microwave.
Metal utensils — These can damage your oven. Remove all metal
before cooking.
Testing Utensils
If you are not sure whether a dish is microwave-safe or not, you can
perform this test:
1
Fill a cup with water and put it inside your oven, next to the dish you
want to test.
Limited 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.
Plastic — Use only if labeled “Microwave Safe.” Other plastics can
melt.
Straw, wicker, and wood — Use only for short-term heating, as
they can be flammable.
2
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.
11
Cooking Instructions
Adding Moisture
Cooking Techniques
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.
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.
General Tips
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
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.
•
•
Turning
•
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.
•
12
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 cookware. Always use pot holders when removing
food from the microwave and instruct children to do the same.

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 after half the cooking time.
Always place vegetables like asparagus and broccoli with the stem
ends pointing towards the edge of the dish and the tips 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, stir or 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.

Troubleshooting Guide
The turntable makes noises or sticks.
Before you call a repair person for your oven, check this list of possible
problems and solutions.
•
•
Neither the oven’s display nor the oven operate.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Properly insert the plug into a grounded outlet.
If the outlet is controlled by a wall switch, make sure the wall switch
is turned on.
Remove the plug from the outlet, wait ten seconds, then plug it in
again.
Reset the circuit breaker or replace any blown fuse.
Plug another appliance into the outlet; if the other appliance doesn’t
work, have a qualified electrician repair the outlet.
Plug the oven into a different outlet.
Using your microwave causes TV or radio interference.
•
The oven’s display works, but the power won’t come
on.
•
•
•
•
Make sure the door is closed securely.
Check to see if packing material or other material is stuck to the door
seal.
Check for door damage.
Press Cancel twice and re-enter all cooking instructions.
The power goes off before the set time has elapsed.
•
•
If there has not been a power outage, remove the plug from the
outlet, wait ten seconds, then plug it in again. If there was a power
outage, the time indicator will display “88:88” Reset the clock and
any cooking instructions.
Reset the circuit breaker or replace any blown fuse.
The food is cooking too slowly.
•
Make sure the oven is on its own 15 amp circuit line. Operating
another appliance on the same circuit can cause a voltage drop. If
necessary, move the oven to its own circuit.
You see sparks or arcing.
•
Clean the turntable, roller ring and oven floor.
Make sure the turntable and roller ring are positioned correctly.
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.
18
This is similar to the interference caused by other small appliances,
such as hair dryers. Move your microwave further away from other
appliances, like your TV or radio.

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.
