ARCING
If you see arcing, press the OFF/CLEAR button and correct the problem.
Arcing is the microwave term for sparks in the oven.
Arcing is caused by:
■ Foil not molded to food (upturned edges act
like antennas).
■ The metal shelf not installed correctly so it
touches the microwave wall.
■ Metal, such as twist-ties, poultry pins, or goldrimmed dishes, in the microwave.
■ Metal or foil touching the side of the oven.
■ Recycled paper towels containing small metal

WARNING!
FOODS
■ Do not pop popcorn in your microwave oven
unless in a special microwave popcorn accessory
or unless you use popcorn labeled for use in
microwave ovens.
■ Do not boil eggs in a microwave oven. Pressure
will build up inside egg yolk and will cause it to
burst, possibly resulting in injury.
Operating Instructions
■ Operating the microwave with no food inside for
more than a minute or two may cause damage to
the oven and could start a fire. It increases the
heat around the magnetron and can shorten the
life of the oven.
■ Foods with unbroken outer “skin” such as
potatoes, hot dogs, sausages, tomatoes, apples,
chicken livers and other giblets, and egg yolks
should be pierced to allow steam to escape
during cooking.
■ SUPERHEATED WATER
Troubleshooting Tips
Liquids, such as water, coffee or tea, are able to
be overheated beyond the boiling point without
appearing to be boiling. 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 THE CONTAINER IS DISTURBED OR A SPOON
OR OTHER UTENSIL IS INSERTED INTO THE LIQUID.
To reduce the risk of injury to persons:
— Do not overheat the liquid.
— Stir the liquid both before and halfway through
heating it.
— Do not use straight-sided containers with
narrow necks.
— After heating, allow the container to stand in
the microwave oven for a short time before
removing the container.
Consumer Support
— Use extreme care when inserting a spoon or
other utensil into the container.
4
■ Foods cooked in liquids (such as pasta) may
tend to boil more rapidly than foods containing
less moisture. Should this occur, refer to the
Care and cleaning of the microwave oven section
for instructions on how to clean the inside of
the oven.
■ Avoid heating baby food in glass jars, even with
the lid off. Make sure all infant food is thoroughly
cooked. Stir food to distribute the heat evenly.
Be careful to prevent scalding when warming
formula. The container may feel cooler than the
formula really is. Always test the formula before
feeding the baby.
■ Don’t defrost frozen beverages in narrow-necked
bottles (especially carbonated beverages). Even if
the container is opened, pressure can build up.
This can cause the container to burst, possibly
resulting in injury.
■ Hot foods and steam can cause burns. Be careful
when opening any containers of hot food,
including popcorn bags, cooking pouches and
boxes. To prevent possible injury, direct steam
away from hands and face.
■ Do not overcook potatoes. They could dehydrate
and catch fire, causing damage to your oven.
■ Cook meat and poultry thoroughly—meat to at
least an INTERNAL temperature of 160°F and
poultry to at least an INTERNAL temperature
of 180°F. Cooking to these temperatures usually
protects against foodborne illness.
ge.com
Do not operate the oven without the turntable and the turntable support seated and in place. The turntable
must be unrestricted so it can rotate.
Make sure all cookware used in your microwave oven is suitable for microwaving. Most glass casseroles,
cooking dishes, measuring cups, custard cups, pottery or china dinnerware which does not have metallic
trim or glaze with a metallic sheen can be used. Some cookware is labeled “suitable for microwaving.”
If the dish remains cool and only the water in
the cup heats, then the dish is microwave-safe.
■ Oversized food or oversized metal cookware
should not be used in a microwave/convection
oven because they increase the risk of electric
shock and could cause a fire.
■ Sometimes the oven floor, turntable and walls
can become too hot to touch. Be careful touching
the floor, turntable and walls during and after
cooking.
■ If you use a meat thermometer while cooking,
make sure it is safe for use in microwave ovens.
■ Some styrofoam trays (like those that meat is
packaged on) have a thin strip of metal embedded
in the bottom. When microwaved, the metal can
burn the floor of the oven or ignite a paper towel.
■ Use of the shelf accessory:
— Remove the shelf from the oven when
not in use.
— Use pot holders when handling the shelf and
cookware. They may be hot.
— Do not cover the shelf or any part of the oven
with metal foil. This will cause overheating of
the microwave/convection oven.
■ Do not use your microwave/convection oven to
dry newspapers.
■ Do not use paper products when the microwave/
convection oven is operated in the convection or
combination mode.
■ Cookware may become hot because of heat
transferred from the heated food. Pot holders
may be needed to handle the cookware.
■ “Boilable” cooking pouches and tightly closed
plastic bags should be slit, pierced or vented as
directed by package. If they are not, plastic could
burst during or immediately after cooking,
possibly resulting in injury. Also, plastic storage
containers should be at least partially uncovered
because they form a tight seal. When cooking with
containers tightly covered with plastic wrap,
remove covering carefully and direct steam away
from hands and face.
■ Use foil only as directed in this manual.
TV dinners may be microwaved in foil trays less
than 3/4″ high; remove the top foil cover and
return the tray to the box. When using foil in the
microwave oven, keep the foil at least 1″ away
from the sides of the oven.
■ Plastic cookware—Plastic cookware designed for
microwave cooking is very useful, but should be
used carefully. Even microwave-safe plastic may
not be as tolerant of overcooking conditions as
are glass or ceramic materials and may soften or
char if subjected to short periods of overcooking.
In longer exposures to overcooking, the food
and cookware could ignite.
Follow these guidelines:
1
Use microwave-safe plastics only and use
them in strict compliance with the cookware
manufacturer’s recommendations.
2
3
Do not microwave empty containers.
Do not permit children to use plastic
cookware without complete supervision.
5
Consumer Support
— Be sure that the shelf is positioned properly
inside the oven to prevent product damage.
■ Paper towels, waxed paper and plastic wrap can
be used to cover dishes in order to retain moisture
and prevent spattering. Be sure to vent plastic
wrap so steam can escape.
Troubleshooting Tips
■ Do not use recycled paper products. Recycled
paper towels, napkins and waxed paper can
contain metal flecks which may cause arcing
or ignite. Paper products containing nylon
or nylon filaments should be avoided, as they
may also ignite.
■ Not all plastic wrap is suitable for use in microwave
ovens. Check the package for proper use.
Operating Instructions
■ If you are not sure if a dish is microwave-safe,
use this test: Place in the oven both the dish you
are testing and a glass measuring cup filled with
1 cup of water—set the measuring cup either in
or next to the dish. Microwave 30–45 seconds at
high. If the dish heats, it should not be used for
microwaving.

Convection Cooking
During convection cooking, a heating element is used to raise the temperature of the air
inside the oven. Any oven temperature from 225°F to 450°F may be programmed. A fan
gently circulates this heated air throughout the oven, over and around the food,
producing golden brown exteriors and rich moist interiors.
Because the heated air is kept constantly moving, not permitting a layer of cooler air to
develop around the food; some foods cook faster than in regular oven cooking.
Always use the shelf when
convection cooking.

Troubleshooting Tips
Variable power levels add flexibility to
microwave cooking. The power levels
on the microwave oven can be compared
to the surface units on a range. Each power
level gives you microwave energy a certain
percent of the time. Power level 7 is
microwave energy 70% of the time.
Power level 3 is energy 30% of the time.
Most cooking will be done on High (power
level 10) which gives you 100% power.
Power level 10 will cook faster but food may
need more frequent stirring, rotating or
turning over. A lower setting will cook more
evenly and need less stirring or rotating of
the food. Some foods may have better flavor,
texture or appearance if one of the lower
settings is used. Use a lower power level
when cooking foods that have a tendency
to boil over, such as scalloped potatoes.
Here are some examples of uses for various
power levels:
Operating Instructions
1
Rest periods (when the microwave energy
cycles off) give time for the food to
“equalize” or transfer heat to the inside
of the food. An example of this is shown
with power level 3—the defrost cycle.
If microwave energy did not cycle off,
the outside of the food would cook before
the inside was defrosted.

About the convection features.
ge.com
Because the heated air is kept constantly moving, not permitting a layer of cooler air
to develop around the food, some foods cook faster than in regular oven cooking.
See the Cookware Tips section for information on suggested cookware.
Safety Instructions
Convection cooking uses a heating element to raise the temperature of the air inside the
oven. Any oven temperature from 225°F to 450°F may be set. A fan gently circulates this
heated air throughout the oven, over and around the food, producing golden brown
exteriors and rich, moist interiors.
For Best Results…
Always use the shelf when convection cooking.
Reduce package/recipe temperature 25°F for baked goods.
The shelf is required for good air circulation and even browning.

Metal Pans are recommended for all types of baked products, but especially where
browning or crusting is important.
Dark or dull finish metal pans are best for breads and pies because they absorb heat
and produce crisper crust.
Shiny aluminum pans are better for cakes, cookies or muffins because these pans
reflect heat and help produce a light tender crust.
Safety Instructions
Convection Cooking
Glass or Glass-Ceramic casserole or baking dishes are best suited for egg and cheese
recipes due to the cleanability of glass.
Combination Cooking
Heat-Resistant Plastic microwave cookware (safe to 450°F) may be used, but it is not
recommended for foods requiring crusting or all-around browning, because the
plastic is a poor conductor of heat.

Term

■ the metal shelf being installed incorrectly and touching the microwave walls.
■ metal or foil touching the side of the oven.
■ foil that is not molded to food (upturned edges act like antennas).
■ metal such as twist-ties, poultry pins, gold-rimmed dishes.
■ recycled paper towels containing small metal pieces.
Covers hold in moisture, allow for more even heating and reduce cooking time. Venting plastic wrap or
covering with wax paper allows excess steam to escape.
Shielding
In a regular oven, you shield chicken breasts or baked foods to prevent over-browning. When microwaving,
you use small strips of foil to shield thin parts, such as the tips of wings and legs on poultry, which would
cook before larger parts.
Standing Time When you cook with regular ovens, foods such as roasts or cakes are allowed to stand to finish cooking or
to set. Standing time is especially important in microwave cooking. Note that a microwaved cake is not
placed on a cooling rack.
Venting
After covering a dish with plastic wrap, you vent the plastic wrap by turning back one corner so excess
steam can escape.
