PRECAUTIONS
GENERAL
THIS APPLIANCE IS DESIGNED FOR DOMESTIC USE ONLY!
THE APPLIANCE SHOULD NOT BE OPERATED without food
in the oven when using microwaves. Operation in
this manner is likely to damage the appliance.
IF YOU PRACTICE OPERATING the oven, put a glass
of water inside. The water will absorb the microwave energy and the oven will not be damaged.
DO NOT USE THE CAVITY for any storage purposes.
REMOVE WIRE TWIST-TIES from paper or
plastic bags before placing bag in
the oven.
DEEPFRYING
DO NOT USE YOUR MICROWAVE oven for deep-frying,
because the oil temperature cannot be
controlled.
USE HOT PADS OR OVEN MITTS to prevent
burns, when touching containers, oven
parts, and pan after cooking.
LIQUIDS
E.G. BEVERAGES OR WATER. Overheating the liquid
beyond boiling point can occur
without evidence of bubbling.
This could result in a sudden
boil over of the hot liquid.
To prevent this possibility the
following steps should be taken:
1. Avoid using straight-sided containers with
narrow necks.
2. Stir the liquid before placing the container
in the oven and let the teaspoon remain
in the container.
3. After heating, allow standing for a short
time, stirring again before carefully removing the container from the oven.
CAREFUL
ALWAYS REFER to a microwave cookbook for details. Especially, if cooking or reheating food
that contains alcohol.
AFTER HEATING BABY FOOD or liquids in a
baby bottle or in a baby food
jar, always stir and check the
temperature before serving.
This will ensure that the heat is evenly distributed
and the risk of scalding or burns can be avoided.
Ensure the Lid and the Teat is removed before heating!
PUSH  PUSH KNOBS
THE KNOBS OF THIS OVEN are aligned with
the buttons on the panel, at delivery.
The knobs will slide out if pushed and
their various functions can be accessed. It is not necessary to
have them petruding from
the panel during operation.
Simply push them back into the panel when you are done with the setting

support.
BAKING PLATE
USE THE BAKINGPLATE when cooking
in forced air only. Never use it in
combination with microwaves.
COVER
THE COVER is used to cover food during cooking
and reheating with microwaves
only and helps to reduce spattering, retain food moisture as well
as reducing the time needed.
USE THE COVER for two level reheating
WIRE RACK
USE THE WIRE RACK when cooking
and baking with Forced Air and
Grill functions.
WHEN GRILLING WITHOUT MICROWAVES, use the high
wire rack to elevate the food closer to the grill
element in the ceiling.

SOME FOOD CLASSES REQUIRE the food to
be turned or stirred during cooking.
In these cases the oven will stop and
prompt you to perform the needed
action. If the door isn’t opened at this
time (within 3 minutes) the oven assumes that no more cooking is needed and
returns to stand by.

MAINTENANCE & CLEANING
CLEANING IS THE ONLY MAINTENANCE normally required.
FAILURE TO MAINTAIN THE OVEN in a clean condition
could lead to deterioration of the surface that
could adversely affect the life of the appliance
and possibly result in a hazardous situation.
DO NOT USE METAL SCOURING PADS,
ABRASIVE CLEANSERS , steel-
wool pads, gritty washcloths, etc. which can
damage the control panel, and the interior and exterior oven surfaces. Use a sponge with a mild detergent
or a paper towel with spray glass cleaner.
Apply spray glass cleaner to a paper towel.
DO NOT SPRAY directly on the oven.
THE GRILL ELEMENT does not need cleaning since
the intense heat will burn off any splashes, but the ceiling above
it may need regular
cleaning. This should be
done with warm water,
detergent and a sponge.
Twist and remove the ceramic hook.
Fold down the front end of the grill element to access the ceiling for cleaning.
DISHWASHER SAFE:
TURNTABLE SUPPORT.
GLASS TURNTABLE.

AT REGULAR INTERVALS, especially if spill
overs have occurred, remove the
turntable, the turntable support
and wipe the base of the oven
clean.
THIS OVEN IS DESIGNED to operate with the turntable in place.
DO NOT operate the microwave oven
when the turntable has been removed
for cleaning.
USE A MILD DETERGENT, water and a soft cloth to
clean the interior surfaces, front and rear of the
door and the door opening.
DO NOT ALLOW GREASE or food particles to
build up around the door.
FOR STUBBORN STAINS, boil a cup of water in the
