PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID POSSIBLE EXPOSURE
TO EXCESSIVE MICROWAVE ENERGY
• 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.
• 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:
- door (bent),
- hinges and latches (broken or loosened),
- door seals and sealing surfaces.

front face and the door, or allow soil or
cleaner residue to accumulate on sealing
surfaces.
• The oven should not be adjusted or
repaired by anyone except properly qualified
service personnel.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
be equal to or greater than the electrical
rating of the appliance, or. . . .
2. Do not use an extension cord. If the power
supply cord is too short, have a qualified
electrician or serviceman install an outlet near
the appliance.
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 electric current. This appliance is
equipped with a cord having a grounding wire
and a grounding plug. The plug must be
plugged into an outlet that is properly installed
and grounded.
NOTES:
1. A short power-supply cord is provided to
reduce the risks resulting from becoming
entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
2. Longer cord sets or extension cords are
available and may be used if care is exercised in their use.
3. 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 (3) the longer cord should be
arranged so that it will not drape over the
countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled
on by children or tripped over accidentally.
Ensure proper ground
exists before use
WARNING
Improper grounding can result in a risk of electric shock. Consult a qualified electrician if the
grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if doubt exists as to whether the appliance is properly grounded, and either:
1. If it is necessary to use an extension cord,
use only a 3-wire extension cord that has a
3-blade grounding plug, and a 3-slot receptacle that will accept the plug on the appliance.

For safety purposes this oven must be plugged into a
15 or 20 Amp circuit. No other electrical appliances or
lighting circuits should be on this line. If in doubt, consult a licensed electrician.
All air vents should be kept clear during cooking. If air
vents are covered during oven operation the oven may
overheat. In this case, a sensitive thermal safety device
automatically turns the oven off. The oven will be
inoperable until it has cooled sufficiently.
The voltage used at the wall receptacle must be the
same as specified on the oven name plate located on
the back or on the side of the control panel of the oven.
Use of a higher voltage is dangerous and may result in
a fire or other type of accident causing oven damage.
Low voltage will cause slow cooking. In case your
microwave oven does not perform normally in spite of
proper voltage, remove and reinsert the plug.
1. Microwave oven operation may interfere with TV or
radio reception.
2. When there is interference, it may be reduced or
eliminated by taking the following measures:
a. Clean the door and the sealing surfaces of the
oven.
b. Reorient the receiving antenna of radio or
television.
c. Relocate the microwave oven in relation to the TV
or radio.
d. Move the microwave oven away from the
receiver.
e. Plug the microwave oven into a different outlet
so that microwave oven and receiver are on
different branch circuits.
C. Placement of the Oven
Your microwave oven can be placed easily in your
kitchen, family room, or anywhere else in your home.
Place the oven on a flat surface such as a kitchen
countertop or a specially designed microwave oven
cart. Do not place oven above a gas or electric range.

COOKWARE GUIDE
Most heat-resistant, non-metallic cookware is safe for use in your microwave oven. However, to test cookware
before using, follow these steps:
1. Place the empty cookware in the microwave oven.
2. Measure 1 cup of water in a glass measuring cup and place it in the oven beside the cookware.
3. Microwave on 100% power for 1 minute. If the dish is warm, it should not be used for microwave cooking.
USE
DO NOT USE
Ovenproof Glass
Metal Utensil
• Glass treated for use in high-intensity heat
includes utility dishes, bread dishes, pie plates, cake
plates, liquid measuring cups, casseroles, and bowls
without metallic trim.
• Metal shields food from microwave energy and
produces uneven cooking. Avoid metal skewers,
thermometers, or foil trays.
• Metal utensils can cause arcing, which is a
discharge of electric current. Arcing can damage
your microwave oven.
China
• Bowls, cups, serving plates, and platters without
metallic trim can be used in your oven.
Metal Decoration
• Do not use metal-trimmed or metal-banded
dinnerware, casserole dishes, etc.
Plastic
• When using plastic wrap as a cover, make sure that
the dish is deep enough so the plastic wrap does not
touch the food. As the food heats, it may melt the
plastic wrap wherever the wrap touches the food.
• Place plastic wrap loosely over the top of the dish
and secure it by pressing the wrap to the sides of
the dish.
• Vent by turning back one corner of the plastic wrap.
This will allow excess steam to escape.
• Use plastic dishes, cups, semi-rigid freezer
containers, and plastic bags only for short time
cooking. Use these with care because the
plastic may soften from the heat of the food.
Centura™ Tableware
• The Corning Company recommends that you
do not use Centura tableware and some Corelle™
closed-handle cups for microwave
cooking.
Aluminum Foil
• Avoid large sheets of aluminum foil because
they hinder cooking and may cause arcing.
• Use small pieces of foil to shield poultry legs
and wings.
• Keep all aluminum foil at least 1 inch from the walls
and door of the oven.
Paper
Wood
• Microwave-safe paper towels, waxed paper, paper
napkins, and paper plates with no metallic trim or
design can be used in your oven.
• Refer to the manufacturer’s label for use of any
paper product in the microwave oven.
• Wooden bowls, boards, and baskets will dry out and
may split or crack when you use them in the
microwave oven.
Tightly Closed Containers
• Tightly closed cookware can explode. Be sure
to leave an opening for steam to escape from
covered cookware.
Brown Paper
• Avoid using brown paper bags. They absorb
heat and could burn.
Metal Twist Ties
• Always remove metal twist ties as they can become
hot and cause a fire.

TIPS FOR MICROWAVE COOKING
ARRANGEMENT
Do not stack food. Arrange in a single layer in the dish
for more even cooking. Because dense foods cook
more slowly, place thicker portions of meat, poultry, fish,
and vegetables toward the outside of the dish.
BROWNING
Meat and poultry with high fat content that are cooked
for 10 or 15 minutes or longer will brown lightly. Foods
cooked a shorter time can be brushed with a browning
agent, such as Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, or
barbecue sauce.
TESTING FOR DONENESS
Because foods cook quickly in a microwave oven, you
need to test frequently for doneness.
COVERING
A cover traps heat and steam and causes the food to
cook more quickly. Use a lid or microwave-safe plastic
wrap with one corner folded back to vent the excess
steam. Lids on glass casseroles can become hot
during cooking. Handle carefully. Waxed paper will
prevent the food from splattering in the oven and help
retain heat. When warming bread items, use waxed
paper, napkins, or paper towels. To absorb extra
moisture, wrap sandwiches and fatty foods in paper
towels.
STANDING TIME
Depending on density, food often needs to stand from
2 to 15 minutes either in or outside of oven to finish
cooking after cooking power shuts off. Outside of oven,
you usually need to cover food during standing time to
retain heat. Remove most foods when they are slightly
undercooked and they will finish cooking during standing
time.The internal temperature of food will rise about 10°F
during standing time.
SPACING
Arrange individual foods, such as baked potatoes,
cupcakes, and hors d’oeuvres in a circle and at least
1 inch apart. This will help the food cook more evenly.
SHIELDING
To prevent some portions of rectangular or square dishes from overcooking, you may need to shield
them with small strips of aluminum foil to block the
microwaves. You can also cover poultry legs and
wing tips with foil to keep them from overcooking.
Always keep foil at least 1 inch from oven walls
to prevent arcing.
STIRRING
Stirring blends flavors and redistributes the heat in
foods. Always stir from the outside toward the center
of the dish. Food at the outside of the dish heats first.
PIERCING
Pierce the shell, skin, or membrane of foods before
cooking to prevent them from bursting. Foods that
require piercing include yolks and whites of eggs, hot
dogs, clams, oysters, and whole vegetables, such as
potatoes and squash.
TURNING
Large foods, such as roasts and whole poultry, should
be turned so that the top and bottom cook evenly. Also
turn over chicken pieces and chops.
CLEANING
Wipe the oven inside and outside with a soft cloth and
a mild detergent solution. Then rinse and wipe dry.
This should be done weekly or more often, if needed.
Never use cleaning powders or rough pads.
Excessive oil splatters on the inside top will be difficult
to remove if left for many days. Wipe splatters with a
wet paper towel, especially after cooking chicken or
bacon.
• The glass turntable may be cleaned at the sink. Be
careful not to chip or scratch the edges as this may
cause the turntable to break during use.
• The turntable roller rest should be cleaned regularly.
SPECIAL CARE
For best performance and safety, the inner door panel
and the oven front frame should be free of food or
grease buildup. Wipe often with a mild detergent; then
rinse and wipe dry. Never use cleaning powders or
rough pads.
REMOVABLE PARTS
The turntable and turntable roller rest are removable.
They should be hand-washed in warm (not hot) water
with a mild detergent and a soft cloth. Once they are
clean, rinse well and dry with a soft cloth. Never use
cleaning powders, steel wool, or rough pads.
After cleaning the control panel, touch STOP/CLEAR
to clear any entries that might have been entered
accidentally while cleaning the panel.

turn, separate, or rearrange the food.
Remove any portions that have thawed.
Return frozen portions to the oven and touch
START to resume the defrost cycle.
Three defrost sequences are preset in the oven.
The auto defrost feature provides you with the best
defrosting method for frozen foods. The cooking guide
will show you which defrost sequence is recommended
for the food you are defrosting.
For added convenience, the Auto Defrost
includes a built-in beep mechanism that reminds
you to check, turn over, separate, or rearrange to get
best defrost results. Three different defrosting levels
are provided.
OPERATING TIPS
• For best results, remove fish, shellfish, meat, and
poultry from its original closed paper or plastic package (wrapper). Otherwise, the wrap will hold steam
and juice close to the foods, which can cause the
outer surface of the foods to cook.
• For best results, shape your ground meat into the
form of a doughnut before freezing. When defrosting,
scrape off thawed meat when the beep sounds and

COOKING TIPS
Meat
Poultry
1. No special techniques are required. Meat should be
prepared as with conventional cooking. Season if
desired. Always thoroughly defrost meat before cooking.
2. Place the meat on a microwave roasting rack or
microwave-proof plate and place on the turntable.
3. Cook according to the Meat Cooking Table (below).
Use the longer time for large cuts of meats and the
shorter time for small cuts of meats. For thicker
chops, use the longer time.
4. Turn the meat once halfway through the cooking
time.
5. Let stand for 5-10 minutes in oven after cooking.
The standing time is very important as it
completes the cooking process.
6. Make sure meat, especially pork, is thoroughly
cooked before eating.
1. No special techniques are required. Poultry should
be prepared as with conventional cooking. Season if
desired.
2. Poultry should be thoroughly defrosted. Remove
giblets and any metal clamps.
3. Prick the skin and brush lightly with vegetable oil
unless the poultry is self-basting.
4. All poultry should be placed on a microwave roasting
rack or a microwave-proof plate and placed on the
turntable.
5. Cook according to the instructions in the Poultry
Cooking Table below. Turn over halfway through the
cooking time. Because of its shape, poultry has a
tendency to cook unevenly, especially in very bony
parts.Turning during roasting helps to cook these
areas evenly.
6. Let stand for 5-10 minutes in oven after cooking
before carving. The standing time is very important,
as it completes the cooking process.
7. Make sure poultry is thoroughly cooked before eating.
Whole poultry is completely cooked when the juices
run clear from the inside thigh when it is pierced with
a sharp knife. Poultry pieces should be pierced with
a sharp knife through the thickest part to ensure that
the juices are clear and the flesh is firm.

TROUBLESHOOTING
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Operation
Answer
Question
Why is the oven light not on during
cooking?
There may be several reasons why the oven light is not on.
Have you:
• Set a cooking time?
• Touched START?
Why does steam come out of the air
exhaust vent?
Steam is normally produced during cooking. The microwave oven
has been designed to vent this steam.
Will the microwave oven be damaged if it
operates empty?
Yes. Never operate the oven empty or without the glass turntable.
Does microwave energy pass through the
viewing screen in the door?
No. The metal screen bounces the energy back to the oven cavity.
The holes (or ports) allow only light to pass through. They do not
let microwave energy pass through.
Why does a tone sound when a pad on
the control panel is touched?
The tone tells you that the setting has been entered.
Can my microwave oven be damaged if
food is cooked for too long?
Like any other cooking appliance, it is possible to overcook food
to the point that the food creates smoke and even possibly fire,
and damage to the inside of the oven. It is always best to be near
the oven while you are cooking.
When the oven is plugged into the wall
outlet for the first time, and it does not
work properly.What is wrong?
The microcomputer controlling your oven may temporarily
become scrambled and fail to function as programmed when you
plug in for the first time or when power resumes after a power
interruption. Unplug the oven from the 120 volt household outlet
and then plug it back in to reset the microcomputer.
Why do I see light reflection around the
outer case?
This light is from the oven light which is located between the
oven cavity and the outer wall of the oven.
What are the various sounds I hear when
the microwave oven is operating?
The clicking sound is caused by a mechanical switch turning the
microwave oven’s magnetron ON and OFF.
The heavy hum and clunk is from the change in power the
magnetron draws as it is turned ON and OFF by a mechanical
switch.The change in blower speed is from the change in line
voltage caused by the magnetron being turned ON and OFF.

TROUBLESHOOTING
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS (continued)
Food
Question
Answer
What is wrong when baked foods have a
hard, dry, brown spot?
A hard, dry, brown spot indicates overcooking. Shorten the cooking
or reheating time.
Why do eggs sometimes pop?
When baking, frying, 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 wooden toothpick before cooking.
CAUTION: Never microwave eggs in the shell.
Why are scrambled eggs sometimes a
little dry after cooking?
Eggs will dry out when they are overcooked, even if the same
recipe is used each time. The cooking time may need to be varied
for one of these reasons:
• Eggs vary in size.
• Eggs are at room temperature one time and at refrigerator
temperature another time.
• Eggs continue cooking during standing time.
Is it possible to pop popcorn in a
microwave oven?
Yes, if using one of the two methods described below:
(1) microwave-popping devices designed specifically for microwave
cooking
(2) prepackaged commercial microwave popcorn that is made
for specific times and power output needed
Follow exact directions given by each manufacturer for
its popcorn popping product and do not leave the oven
unattended while the corn is being popped. If corn fails
to pop after the suggested time, discontinue cooking.
Overcooking could result in an oven fire.
CAUTION:
• Never use a brown paper bag for popping corn or attempt to
pop leftover kernels.
Why do baked apples sometimes burst
during cooking?
The peel has not been removed from the top half of each apple to
allow for expansion of the interior of the apple during cooking. As in
conventional cooking methods, the interior of the apple expands
during the cooking process.
Why do baked potatoes sometimes
burn during cooking?
If the cooking time is too long, fire could result. At the end of the
recommended cooking time, potatoes should be slightly firm.
CAUTION: Do not overcook.
Why is a standing time recommended
after microwave cooking time is over?
Standing time allows foods to continue cooking evenly for a few
minutes after the actual microwave oven cooking cycle. The
amount of standing time depends upon the density of the foods.
Why is additional time required for
cooking food stored in the refrigerator?
As in conventional cooking, the initial temperature of food affects
total cooking time. You need more time to cook food taken out of a
refrigerator than for food at room temperature.
