These words mean:
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't immediately
follow instructions.
DANGER
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow
instructions.
WARNING
All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can
happen if the instructions are not followed.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
When using electrical appliances basic safety precautions should be followed, including the following:
WARNING: To reduce the risk of burns, electric
shock, fire, injury to persons, or exposure to excessive
microwave energy:
■ Read all instructions before using the microwave oven.
■ Read and follow the specific “PRECAUTIONS TO
AVOID POSSIBLE EXPOSURE TO EXCESSIVE
MICROWAVE ENERGY” found in this section.
■ The microwave oven must be grounded. Connect only
to properly grounded outlet. See “GROUNDING
INSTRUCTIONS” found in this section and in the
provided Installation Instructions.
■ Install or locate the microwave oven only in
accordance with the provided Installation Instructions.
■ Some products such as whole eggs in the shell and
sealed containers – for example, closed glass jars –
are able to explode and should not be heated in the
microwave oven.
■ Use the microwave oven only for its intended use as
described in this manual. Do not use corrosive
chemicals or vapors in the microwave oven. This type
of oven is specifically designed to heat, cook, or dry
food. It is not designed for industrial or laboratory use.
■ As with any appliance, close supervision is necessary
when used by children.
■ Do not operate the microwave oven if it has a
damaged cord or plug, if it is not working properly, or

To reduce the risk of fire in the oven cavity:
– Do not overcook food. Carefully attend the microwave oven
when paper, plastic, or other combustible materials are placed
inside the oven to facilitate cooking.
– Remove wire twist-ties from paper or plastic bags before
placing bags in oven.
– If materials inside the oven ignite, keep oven door closed, turn
oven off, and disconnect the power cord, or shut off power at
the fuse or circuit breaker panel.
– Do not use the cavity for storage purposes. Do not leave
paper products, cooking utensils, or food in the cavity when
not in use.
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.
– Use extreme care when inserting a spoon or other utensil into
the container.
Oversized foods or oversized metal utensils should not be
inserted in the microwave oven as they may create a fire or risk
of electric shock.
Do not clean with metal scouring pads. Pieces can burn off the
pad and touch electrical parts involving a risk of electric shock.

To Lock/Unlock Control: Before locking, make sure the
microwave oven is off. Touch and hold CANCEL/OFF for
5 seconds until 2 tones sound. Repeat to unlock the controls.
Cooling Fan
Depending on the length of the cooking cycle, the cooling fan
may continue to run after that cycle has ended. This is normal,
and helps eliminate moisture that may accumulate inside the
microwave oven before the door is opened.
While the fan is running, “COOL” will appear in the display. The
fan will turn off automatically.
MICROWAVE OVEN USE
A magnetron in the microwave oven produces microwaves 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.
■ To avoid damage to the microwave oven, do not lean on or
allow children to swing on the microwave oven door.
■
To avoid damage to the microwave oven, do not operate
when it is empty.
■
Baby bottles and baby food jars should not be heated in
microwave oven.
■
Clothes, flowers, fruit, herbs, wood, gourds, paper, including
brown paper bags and newspaper, should not be dried in
microwave oven.
■
Paraffin wax will not melt in the microwave oven because it
does not absorb microwaves.
■
Use oven mitts or pot holders when removing containers from
microwave oven.
■
Do not overcook potatoes. At the end of the recommended
cook time, potatoes should be slightly firm. Let potatoes
stand for 5 minutes. They will finish cooking while standing.
■
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 temperature, 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 overcooking
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.
7
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 transferred 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.

Sensor Cooking
A sensor in the microwave oven detects humidity released from
the food as it heats, and adjusts the cook time accordingly.
Many sensor cycles require the covering of foods. Microwavesafe containers or steamers with loose-fitting lids are
recommended. The loose-fitting lid allows enough steam to
escape to be detected by the sensor. When covering foods with
plastic wrap, be sure to leave a large enough vent opening to
allow the steam to escape.
NOTES:
■ The microwave oven should be plugged in for at least
3 minutes.
To Use Baked Potato and Meal Reheat:
1. Place item on turntable and close the door.
2. Touch BAKED POTATO or MEAL REHEAT.

animation will briefly appear, followed by the estimated
remaining cook time.
Doneness may be adjusted during the first 20 seconds of
cooking by turning the dial. See “Doneness” section.
The remaining cook time may be recalculated several times
during cooking. Each time, the sensor animation will appear
for 3 seconds, followed by the new remaining time.
When the cycle ends, “END” will appear in the display, and
the end-of-cycle tones will sound, followed by reminder
tones.
■
The microwave oven cavity and the exterior of the cooking
container should be dry.
■
The room temperature should not exceed 95°F (35°C).
3. Touch CANCEL/OFF or open the door to clear the display
and/or stop reminder tones.
■
If the door is opened during a sensor cycle, sensing will stop
and the program will be canceled.
To Use Popcorn:
One Touch Sensor Cooking
A sensor in the microwave oven detects humidity released from
the food and automatically sets a cooking time based on the
