MICROWAVE OVEN USE
A magnetron in the microwave oven produces micro
waves which reflect off the metal floor, walls and
ceiling and pass through the turntable and appropriate
cookware to the food. Microwaves are attracted to
and absorbed by fat, sugar and water molecules in
the food, causing them to move, producing friction
and heat which cooks the food.
1. To avoid damage to the microwave oven, do not
lean on or allow children to swing on the microwave
oven door.
2. To avoid damage to the microwave oven, do not
operate when it is empty.
3. Baby bottles and baby food jars should not be
heated in microwave oven.
4. Clothes, flowers, fruit, herbs, wood, gourds, paper,
including brown paper bags and newspaper,should
not be dried in microwave oven.
5. Paraffin wax will not melt in the microwave oven
because it does not absorb microwaves.
6. Use oven mitts or pot holders when removing con
tainers from microwave oven.
7. Do not overcook potatoes. At the end of the reco
mmended cook time, potatoes should be slightly
firm. Let potatoes stand for 5 minutes. They will
finish cooking while standing.
8. Do not cook or reheat whole eggs inside the shell.
Steam buildup in whole eggs may cause them to
burst, requiring significant cleanup of microwave
oven cavity. Cover poached eggs and allow a
standing time.
Food Characteristics
When microwave cooking, the amount, size and shape,
starting temperature, composition and density of the
food affect cooking results.
Amount of Food
The more food heated at once, the longer the cook time
needed. Check for doneness and add small increments
of time if necessary.
Size and Shape
Smaller pieces of food will cook more quickly than larger
pieces, and uniformly shaped foods cook more evenly
than irregularly shaped food.
Starting Temperature
Room temperature foods will heat faster than refrigerated
foods, and refrigerated foods will heat faster than frozen
foods.
Composition and Density
Foods high in fat and sugar will reach a higher temper
ature, and will heat faster than other foods. Heavy,
dense foods, such as meat and potatoes, require a
longer cook time than the same size of a light, porous
food, such as cake.
Cooking Guidelines
Covering
Covering food helps retain moisture, shorten cook time and
reduce spattering. Use the lid supplied with cookware. If a
lid is not available, wax paper, paper towels or plastic wrap
approved for microwave ovens may be used. Plastic wrap
should be turned back at one corner to provide an opening
to vent steam.Condensation on the door and cavity surfaces
is normal during heavy cooking.
Stirring and Turning
Stirring and turning redistribute heat evenly to avoid over
cooking the outer edges of food. Stir from outside to
center. If possible, turn food over from bottom to top.
Arranging
If heating irregularly shaped or different sized foods, arrange
the thinner parts and smaller sized items toward the center.If
cooking several items of the same size and shape, place them
in a ring pattern, leaving the center of the ring empty.
Piercing
Before heating, use a fork or small knife to pierce or prick
foods that have a skin or membrane, such as potatoes, egg
yolks,chicken livers, hot dogs, and sausage. Prick in several
places to allow steam to vent.
Shielding
Use small, flat pieces of aluminum foil to shield the thin
pieces of irregularly shaped foods, bones and foods such
as chicken wings, leg tips and fish tail. See “Aluminum Foil
and Metal” first.
Standing Time
Food will continue to cook by the natural conduction of heat
even after the microwave cooking cycle ends. The length of
standing time depends on the volume and density of the food.
Cookware and Dinnerware
Cookware and dinnerware must fit on the turntable.
Always use oven mitts or pot holders when handling
because any dish may become hot from heat transf
erred from the food. Do not use cookware and
dinnerware with gold or silver trim. Use the following
chart as a guide, then test before using.

2. Check that metal skewers or foil does not touch
the interior walls.
If there is still a problem, contact the service station.
A list of these stations is included in the oven.
CARE AND CLEANING
Although your oven is provided with safety features, it is important to observe the following:
1. It is important not to defeat or tamper with safety
interlocks.
2. Do not place any object between the oven front
face and the door or allow residue to accumulate on
sealing surfaces. Wipe the sealing area frequently
with a mild detergent, rinse and dry. Never use
abrasive powders or pads.
3. When opened, the door must not be subjected to
strain, for example, a child hanging on an opened
door or any load could cause the oven to fall
forward to cause injury and also damage to the
door. Do not operate the oven if it is damaged, until
it has been repaired by a competent service
technician. It is particularly important that the oven
closes properly and that there is no damage to the:
i) Door(bent)
ii) Hinges and Hookes(broken or loosened)
iii) Door seals and sealing surfaces.

EN-15
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
* Q : Can the oven be used with the glass tray or
roller guide removed?
* A : No. Both the glass tray and roller guide must
always be used in the oven before cooking.
* Q : Can I open the door when the oven is
operating?
* A : The door can be opened anytime during the
cooking operation. Then microwave energy will
be instantly switched off and the time setting
will maintain until the door is closed.
* Q : Why do I have moisture in my microwave
oven after cooking?
* A : The moisture on the side of your microwave
oven is normal. It is caused by steam from
cooking food hitting the cool oven surface.
* Q : Does microwave energy pass through the
viewing screen in the door?
* A : No. The metal screen bounces back the energy
to the oven cavity. The holes are made to allow
light to pass through. They do not let
microwave energy pass through.
* Q : Why do eggs sometimes pop?
* A : When baking or poaching eggs, the yolk may
pop due to steam build-up inside the yolk
membrane. To prevent this, simply pierce the
yolk with a toothpick before cooking. Never
cook eggs without piercing their shells.
* Q : Why this standing time recommended after
the cooking operation has been completed?
* A : Standing time is very important.
With microwave cooking, the heat is in the
food, not in the oven. Many foods build up
enough internal heat to allow the cooking
process to continue, even after the food is
removed from the oven. Standing time for joints
of meat, large vegetables and cakes is to allow
the inside to cook completely, without
overcooking the outside.
* Q : What does “standing time” mean?
* A : “Standing time” means that food should be
removed from the oven and covered for
additional time to allow it to finish cooking. This
frees the oven for other cooking.
* Q : Why does my oven not always cook as fast
as the microwave cooking guide says?
* A : Check your cooking guide again, to make sure
you’ve followed directions exactly ; and to see
what might cause variations in cooking time.
Cooking guide times and heat settings are
suggestions, to help prevent over-cooking... the
most common problem in getting used to a
microwave oven.
Variations in the size, shape and weights and
dimensions could require longer cooking time.
Use your own judgement along with the
cooking guide suggestions to check whether
the food has been properly cooked just as you
would do with a conventional cooker.
* Q : Will the microwave oven be damaged if it
operates while empty?
* A : Yes. Never run it empty.
* Q : Can I operate my microwave oven without
the turntable or turn the turntable over to
hold a large dish?
* A : No. If you remove or turn over the turntable,
you will get poor cooking results. Dishes used
in your oven must fit on the turntable.
* Q : Is it normal for the turntable to turn in either
direction?
* A : Yes. The turntable rotates clockwise or
counterclockwise, depending on the rotation of
the motor when the cooking cycle begins.
* Q : Can I pop popcorn in my microwave oven?
How do I get the best results?
* A : Yes. Pop packaged microwave popcorn
following manufacture’s guidelines. Do not use
regular paper bags. Use the “listening test” by
stopping the oven as soon as the popping
slows to a “pop” every 1 or 2 seconds. Do not
repop unpopped kernels. Do not pop popcorn
in glass cookware.
EN-16
USE YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN SAFELY
General Use
Do not attempt to defeat or tamper with safety
interlocks.
Do not place any object between the oven front frame
and the door or allow residue to build up on sealing
surfaces. Wipe with a mild detergent, rinse and dry.
Never use abrasive powders or pads.
Do not subject the oven door to strain or weight such
as a child hanging on an open door.
This could cause the oven to fall forward resulting in
injury to you and damage to the oven.
Do not operate the oven if door seals or sealing
surfaces are damaged; or if door is bent; or if hinges
are loose or broken.
Do not operate the oven empty. This will damage the
oven.
Do not attempt to dry clothes, newspapers or other
materials in the oven. They may catch on fire.
Do not use recycled paper products as they may
contain impurities which may cause sparks or fires.
Do not hit or strike the control panel with hard objects.
This can damage the oven.
Food
Never use your microwave oven for home canning.
The oven is not designed for proper home canning.
Improperly canned food may spoil and be dangerous
to consume.
Always use the minimum recipe cooking time. It is
better to undercook rather than overcook foods.
Undercooked foods can be returned to the oven for
more cooking. If food is overcooked, nothing can be
done.
Heat small quantities of food or foods with low
moisture carefully. These can quickly dry out, burn or
catch on fire.
Do not heat eggs in the shell. Pressure may build up
and eggs can explode.
Potatoes, apples, egg yolks and sausages are
examples of food with non-porous skins.
These must be pierced before cooking to prevent
bursting.
Do not attempt to deep fat fry in your microwave oven.
Always allow a standing time of at least 20 seconds
after the oven has been switched off to allow the
temperature to even out, stir during heating, if
necessary, and ALWAYS stir after heating. To prevent
eruptive boiling and possible scalding, you should put
a spoon or glass stick into the beverages and stir
before, during and after heating.
Do not leave the oven unattended while popping corn.
Do not pop corn in a paper bag unless it is the
commercially prepared Microwave Popcorn product.
The kernels can overheat and ignite a brown paper
bag.
Do not put packaged Microwave Popcorn bags directly
on the oven tray. Place the package on a microwave
safe glass or ceramic plate to avoid overheating and
cracking the oven tray.
Do not exceed the Microwave Popcorn manufacturers
suggested popping time.
Longer popping does not yield more popcorn but it can
result in buring the popcorn or risk of fire. Remember,
the Popcorn bag and tray can be too hot to handle.
Remove with caution and use pot holders.
ARCING
If you see arcing, touch the STOP/CLEAR pad and correct the problem.
Arcing is the microwave term for sparks in the oven.
Arcing is caused by:
• Metal or foil touching the side of the oven.
• Foil not molded to food (upturned edges act like
antennas).
• Metal, such as twist-ties, poultry pins, or gold rimmed
dishes, in the microwave.
• Recycled paper towels containing small metal pieces
being used in the microwave.
