GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
For all cord connected appliances:
The microwave oven 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. The microwave oven
is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. The plug
must be plugged into an outlet that is
properly installed and grounded.
WARNING: Improper use of the
grounding can result in a risk of
electric shock.
Consult a qualified electrician or serviceman if the grounding instructions are not
completely understood, or if doubt exists
as to whether the microwave oven is
properly grounded.
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 microwave oven.
For a permanently connected appliance:
This appliance must be connected to
a grounded, metallic, permanent wiring
system, or an equipment grounding
conductor should be run with the circuit
conductors and connected to the equipment grounding terminal or lead on the
appliance.

Getting to Know Your
Microwave Oven
This section discusses the concepts behind microwave cooking. It also shows you the
basics you need to know to operate your microwave oven. Please read this information
before you use your oven.
How your microwave
oven works
Microwave ovens are safe. Microwave
energy is not hot. It causes food to make
its own heat, and it's this heat that cooks
the food.
Microwaves are like TV waves, radio
waves or light waves. You cannot see them,
but you can see what they do.
A magnetron in the microwave oven
produces microwaves. The microwaves
move into the oven where they contact
food as it turns on the turntable.
The glass turntable of your microwave
oven lets microwaves pass through. Then
they bounce off a metal floor, back through
the glass turntable, and are absorbed by
the food.
Magnetron
Metal floor
Oven cavity
Glass turntable
Microwaves pass through most glass,
paper, and plastics without heating them so
food absorbs the energy. Microwaves
bounce off metal containers so food does
not absorb the energy.
The microwaves disturb water molecules
in the food. As the molecules bounce
around bumping into each other, heat is
made, like rubbing your hands together.
This is the heat that does the cooking.
8
Radio interference
Using your microwave oven may cause
interference to your radio, TV, or similar
equipment. When there is interference,
you can reduce it or remove it by:
• Cleaning the door and sealing surfaces
of the oven.
• Adjusting the receiving antenna of the
radio or television.
• Moving the receiver away from the
microwave oven.
For the best
cooking results
• Always cook food for the shortest
cooking time recommended. Check to see
how the food is cooking. If needed, touch
EASY MINUTE while the oven is operating
or after the cooking cycle is over (see the
“Using EASY MINUTE” section).
• Stir, turn over, or rearrange the food
being cooked about halfway through the
cooking time for all recipes. This will help
make sure the food is evenly cooked.
NOTE: Some cycles may have to be reset
if you have interrupted the cycle.
• If you do not have a cover for a dish,
use wax paper, or microwave-approved
paper towels or plastic wrap. Turn back a
corner of the plastic wrap to vent steam
during cooking.
Testing your
microwave oven
To test the oven put about 1 cup of cold
water in a glass container in the oven.
Close the door. Make sure it latches. Cook
at 100% power for 2 minutes. When the
time is up, the water should be heated.

Cooking at different cook powers
For best results, some recipes call for
different cook powers. The lower the cook
power, the slower the cooking. Each
Number pad also stands for a different
percentage of cook power. Many microwave
cookbook recipes tell you by number,
percent, or name which cook power to use.
The following chart gives the percentage of
cook power each Number pad stands for,
and the cook power name usually used. It
also tells you when to use each cook power.

NOTE: Standing time is included in the
defrosting time selected by your microwave
oven. This may make defrosting times seem
longer than in other microwave ovens. (See

information.)

Weight conversion chart
You are probably used to food weights as being in pounds and ounces that are fractions of
a pound (for example, 4 ounces equals 1⁄4 pound). However, in order to enter food weight in
CUSTOM DEFROST, you must specify pounds and tenths of a pound. If the weight on the
food package is in fractions of a pound, you can use the following chart to convert the
weight to decimals.

Defrosting tips
• When using CUSTOM DEFROST, the
weight to be entered is the net weight in
pounds, and tenths of pounds (the weight
of the food minus the container).
• CUSTOM DEFROST gives best results
when food to be thawed is a minimum of
0°F or colder.
POUND
WEIGHT
One-Quarter Pound
One-Half Pound
Three-Quarters Pound
One Pound
• If the food is kept outside the freezer for
more than 20 minutes, and for defrosting
ready-made food, defrost by time and
power and let stand after defrosting.
• The shape of the package affects how
quickly food will defrost. Shallow packages
will defrost more quickly than a deep
block.
• As food begins to defrost, separate the
pieces. Separated pieces defrost more
evenly.

• Use small pieces of aluminum foil to
shield parts of food such as chicken wings,
leg tips, fish tails, or areas that start to get
warm. Make sure the foil does not touch
the sides, top, or bottom of the oven. The
foil can damage the oven lining.
• For better results, a preset standing
time is included in the defrosting time. This
may make the defrosting time seem longer
than expected.
Popping popcorn
POPCORN lets you pop commercially
packaged microwave popcorn by touching
just one pad. Pop only one package at a
time. Try several brands to decide which
gives best popping results. For best results,
use fresh bags of popcorn. Cooking performance may vary with brand and fat content.
If you are using a microwave popcorn popper, follow manufacturer’s instructions.
NOTE: If you want to add more time during
or after popping, use EASY MINUTE.
IMPORTANT: Never leave microwave unattended when adding more popping time than
recommended by the automatic cycle.

Cooking tips
Amount of food
Covering food
• If you increase or decrease the amount
of food you prepare, the time it takes to
cook that food will also change. For
example, if you double a recipe, add a
little more than half the original cooking
time. Check for doneness and, if necessary, add more time in small increments.
Cover food to:
• Reduce splattering
• Shorten cooking times
• Retain food moisture
All coverings that allow microwaves to
pass through are suitable.
Starting temperature of food
Releasing pressure in foods
• The lower the temperature of the food
being put into the microwave oven, the
longer it takes to cook. Food at room
temperature will be reheated more quickly
than food at refrigerated temperature.
• Several foods (for example: baked
potatoes, sausages, egg yolks, and some
fruits) are tightly covered by a skin or
membrane. This can cause the food to
burst from steam building up in them
during cooking. To relieve the pressure and
to prevent bursting, pierce these foods
before cooking with a fork, cocktail pick, or
toothpick.
Composition of food
• Food with a lot of fat and sugar will be
heated faster than food containing a lot
of water. Fat and sugar will also reach a
higher temperature than water in the
cooking process.
• The more dense the food, the longer it
takes to heat. “Very dense” food like meat
takes longer to reheat than lighter, more
porous food like sponge cakes.
Size and shape
• Smaller pieces of food will cook faster
than larger pieces and same-shaped
pieces of food cook more evenly than
irregularly shaped foods.
• With unevenly shaped foods, the thinner
parts will cook faster than the thicker
areas. Place the thinner parts of chicken
wings and legs in the center of the dish.
Using standing time
• Always allow food to stand for a while
after cooking. Standing time after
defrosting, cooking, or reheating always
improves the results since the temperature
will then be evenly distributed throughout
the food.
• The length of the standing time depends
on the volume and density of the food.
Sometimes it can be as short as the time
it takes you to remove the food from the
oven and take it to the serving table.
However, with larger, denser food, the
standing time may be as long as 10
minutes.
Stirring, turning foods
• Stirring and turning foods distributes
heat quickly to the center of the dish and
avoids overcooking at the outer edges of
the food.

C ooking Guide
Arranging food
For best results, distribute food evenly on
the plate. You can do this in several ways:
• If you are cooking several items of the
same food, such as baked potatoes,
place them in a ring pattern for uniform
cooking.
• When cooking foods of uneven shapes
or thickness, such as chicken breasts,
place the smaller or thinner area of the
food towards the center of the dish where
it will be heated last.
• Layer thin slices of meat on top of
each other.
• When you cook or reheat whole fish,
score the skin – this prevents cracking.
Shield the tail and head of whole fish with
small pieces of foil to prevent overcooking
but ensure the foil does not touch the
sides of the oven.
• Do not let food or a container touch the
top or sides of the oven. This will prevent
possible arcing.
Using aluminum foil containers
Metal containers should not be used in a
microwave oven. There are, however, some
exceptions. If you have purchased food
which is prepackaged in an aluminum foil
container, then refer to the instructions on
the package. When using aluminum foil
containers, cooking times may be longer
because microwaves will only penetrate
the top of the food.
30
If you use aluminum containers without
package instructions, follow these guidelines:
• Place container in a glass bowl and add
some water so that it covers the bottom
of the container, not more than 1⁄4 inch
(6 mm) high. This ensures even heating
of the container bottom.
• Always remove the lid to avoid damage
to the oven.
• Use only undamaged containers.
• Do not use containers taller than 3⁄4 inch
(19 mm).
• Container must be half filled.
• To avoid arcing, there must be a minimum
1
⁄4 inch (6 mm) between the aluminum
container and the walls of the oven and
also between two aluminum containers.
• Always place container on turntable.
• Reheating food in aluminum foil containers
usually takes up to double the time
compared to reheating in plastic, glass,
china, or paper containers. The time when
food is ready will vary depending upon the
type of container you use.
• Let food stand for 2 to 3 minutes after
heating so that heat is spread evenly
throughout container.
Cooking you should not do in
your microwave oven
• Do not do canning of foods in the oven.
Closed glass jars may explode, resulting
in damage to the oven or possible
personal injury.
• Do not use the microwave oven to
sterilize objects (baby bottles, etc.). It is
difficult to maintain the high temperature
required for safe sterilization.

C aring for Your Microwave
Oven
Your microwave oven has a stainless
steel interior. Unlike painted steel interiors
found in most other microwave ovens, the
surface will not chip, rust or corrode. Over
time, stains can occur on the stainless steel
surface as the result of food particles
splattering during cooking. This is normal.
• Do not use metal scouring pads, steel
wool or soap-filled scouring pads on the
inside oven cavity. They will scratch the
surface.
• Rub in the direction of the grain line to
avoid marring the surface.
• Always wipe dry to avoid water marks.
• If commercial cleaners are used, follow
label directions. If product contains
chlorine (bleach), wipe thoroughly with
clean water and dry with a soft, lint-free
cloth. Chlorine is a corrosive substance.
For interior surfaces: Wash often with
warm, sudsy water and a sponge or soft
cloth. Use only mild, nonabrasive soaps or a
mild detergent. Be sure to keep the areas
clean where door and oven frame touch
when closed. Wipe well with clean water.
For exterior surfaces and control panel:
Use a soft cloth with spray glass cleaner.
Apply the spray glass cleaner to the soft
cloth; do not spray directly on the oven.
NOTE: Abrasive cleaners, steel-wool
pads, gritty wash cloths, some paper
towels, etc., can damage the control panel
and the interior and exterior oven surfaces.
To clean turntable and turntable support,
wash in mild, sudsy water; for heavily soiled
areas, use a mild cleanser and scouring
sponge. The turntable and turntable support
are dishwasher safe.
You can remove the glass turntable to clean
the oven cavity floor; however, this oven is
designed to operate with the turntable in
place. Do not operate the microwave oven
when the turntable is removed for cleaning.
See the “how your microwave oven works”
section for more information about the
turntable.
For stubborn soil, boil a cup of water in the
oven for 2 or 3 minutes. Steam will soften the
soil. To get rid of odors inside the oven, boil a
cup of water with lemon juice or vinegar.

Q uestions and Answers
QUESTIONS
ANSWERS
Can I operate my microwave oven without
the turntable or turn the turntable over to
accommodate a large dish?
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.
Can I use a rack in my microwave oven so
that I may reheat or cook on two levels at
a time?
You can use a rack only if rack is supplied with
your microwave oven. Use of any rack not
supplied with the microwave oven can result in
poor cooking performance and/or arcing.
Can I use either metal or aluminum pans in Usable metal includes aluminum foil for
shielding (use small, flat pieces), small
my microwave oven?
skewers, and shallow foil trays (if tray is
3
⁄4 inch [19 mm] deep and half filled with food
to absorb microwave energy). Never allow
metal to touch walls or door. (For more
information, see “Using aluminum foil” in the
“Cooking Guide” section.)
Is it normal for the turntable to turn in
either direction?
Yes. The turntable rotates clockwise or
counterclockwise, depending on the rotation
of the motor when the cooking cycle begins.
Sometimes the door of my microwave oven This appearance is normal and does not
appears wavy. Is this normal?
affect the operation of your oven.
What are the humming noises that I hear
when my microwave oven is operating?
You hear the sound of the transformer when
the magnetron tube cycles on.
Why does the dish become hot when I
microwave food in it? I thought that this
should not happen.
As the food becomes hot it will conduct the
heat to the dish. Be prepared to use hot pads
to remove food after cooking.
What does “standing time” mean?
“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.
Can I pop popcorn in my microwave oven? Yes. Pop packaged microwave popcorn
following manufacturer’s guidelines or use
How do I get the best results?
the preprogrammed Popcorn pad. Do not
use regular paper bags. Use the “listening
test” by stopping the oven as soon as the
popping slows to a “pop” every one or two
seconds. Do not repop unpopped kernels.
Do not pop popcorn in glass utensils.
Why does steam come out of the air
exhaust vent?
32
Steam is normally produced during cooking.
The microwave oven has been designed to
vent this steam out the top vents.

Roasting tips
• Spatter can be reduced by lining the bottom of the roasting pan with lightly crushed
aluminum foil.
• Use an accurate meat thermometer to
determine when meat has reached desired
degree of doneness. Insert the thermometer into the center of the thickest portion of
the meat or inner thigh or breast of poultry.
For an accurate reading, the tip of the
thermometer should not touch fat, bone, or
gristle.
• After reading the thermometer once, push
it further into the meat 1⁄2 inch or more and
read again. If the temperature drops, return
the meat to the oven for more cooking.
• Check pork and poultry with a thermometer in 2 to 3 places to ensure adequate
doneness.
• Poultry and roasts will be easier to
carve if loosely covered with foil and
allowed to stand 10 to 15 minutes after removal from the oven.
Positioning racks and
pans
Place the oven racks where you need them
before turning on the oven.
• To move a rack, pull it out to the stop
position, raise the front edge and lift it out.
• Be sure the rack(s) is level.
• Use pot holders or oven mitts to protect
your hands if rack(s) must be moved while
the oven is hot.
• For best performance, cook on one rack.
Place the rack so
the top of the food
will be centered in
the oven.

• When cooking with two racks, arrange the
racks on the 2nd and 4th rack guides. Two
sheets of cookies may be baked if sheets
are switched at approximately three
quarters of the total bake time. Increase
baking time, if necessary.
• For best results allow 2 inches of space
around each pan and between pans and
oven walls. Hot air must circulate around
the pans in the oven for even heat to reach
all parts of the oven. This results in better
baking.

Using aluminum foil
NOTE: Do not line the oven bottom with foil or
other liners. It
could affect the
oven surface as
well as the quality
of your baking.
• Do not cover
the entire rack
with aluminum
foil. It will reduce
air circulation and
give you poor
cooking results.
• Use aluminum foil to catch spillovers from
pies or casseroles by placing foil on the oven
rack below. Foil should be turned up at
edges and be at least 1 inch (2.5 cm) larger
than dish.
• Place tent-shaped foil loosely over meat or
poultry to slow down surface browning for
long term roasting. Remove foil for the last
30 minutes.
• Use narrow strips of foil to shield piecrust
edges if browning too quickly.
• Do not cook on the oven bottom. Permanent
damage to the oven bottom will result!

Variable temperature broiling
• If food is cooking too fast or you want
the food to broil slower from the start, set
the broil temperature between 170°F and
325°F. The lower temperature will slow the
cooking.
• Thicker and unevenly shaped cuts of
fish, chicken and other meats may cook
better if you use lower broiling temperatures when cooking to well-done.
44
• Use only the broiler pan and grid provided.
They are designed to drain extra juices
from the cooking surface. This drainage
helps prevent spatter and smoke.
• Use of foil on the grid is not recommended.
The foil will not allow juices to drain.
• Trim excess fat to reduce spattering. Slit
the fat on the edges to prevent curling.
• Use tongs to turn meat to avoid losing juices.
• Pull out oven rack to stop position before
turning or removing food.
• After broiling, remove the pan from the
oven when removing the food. Drippings
will bake on the pan if left in the heated
oven, making cleaning more difficult.
• For easier cleaning, line the bottom of the
pan with aluminum foil. Clean the pan and
grid as soon as possible after each use.
Recommended rack positions are numbered
from the bottom (1) to the top (5). For best
results, place food 3 inches or more from
the broil element.

Using the Self-Cleaning
Cycle
wWARNING
Burn Hazard
Do not touch the oven during the Self-Cleaning cycle.
Keep children away from oven during Self-Cleaning cycle.
Do not use commercial oven cleaners in your oven.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in burns, or
illness from inhaling dangerous fumes.
Before you start
DO NOT
hand-clean
gasket
Hand-clean frame
Hand-clean door
around edge
NOTE: Heat and odors are normal during
the Self-Cleaning cycle. Keep the kitchen
well ventilated by opening a window or by
turning on a vent hood or other kitchen
vent during the cycle.
Before you start the Self-Cleaning
cycle, make sure you:
• Hand-clean the areas shown. They do not
get hot enough during the Self-Cleaning
cycle for soil to burn away. Use hot water
and detergent or a soapy, steel-wool pad
for cleaning.
NOTE: DO NOT clean, move, or bend the
gasket. You may get poor cleaning, baking,
and roasting.
• Do not let water, cleaner, etc., enter slots
on door and frame.
48
• Remove the broiler pan and grid and any
cookware/bakeware being stored in the
oven.
• Wipe out any loose soil or grease. This will
help reduce smoke during the SelfCleaning cycle.
• Wipe up food spills containing sugar as
soon as possible after the oven cools
down. When sugar is heated to a high
temperature in the Self-Cleaning cycle, the
high temperature can cause the sugar to
burn and react with the porcelain. This can
cause staining and etching or pitting.
• Remove the oven racks from the oven if
you want them to remain shiny. You can
clean the oven racks in the Self-Cleaning
cycle, but they will become harder to slide.
(See the “Cleaning chart” in the “Caring for
Your Range” section, p. 36.) If you clean
the racks in the Self-Cleaning cycle, place
them on the 2nd and 4th rack guides. (The
guides are counted from bottom to top.)
IMPORTANT: The health of some birds is
extremely sensitive to the fumes given off
during the Self-Cleaning cycle. Move birds
to another closed and well ventilated room.
TIPS:
• Keep the kitchen well ventilated during the
Self-Cleaning cycle to help get rid of heat,
odors, and smoke.
• Clean the oven before it gets heavily
soiled. Cleaning a very soiled oven takes
longer and results in more smoke than
usual.

How the cycle works
The Self-Cleaning cycle uses very high heat
to burn away soil and grease. During the
cycle, the oven gets much hotter than it does
for normal baking or broiling. This high heat
breaks up the soil or grease and burns it
away.
Your oven is preset for a 31⁄2-hour SelfCleaning cycle. However, you can adjust the
cycle time to the amount of soil in your oven.
You can set the cycle anywhere between 21⁄2
and 41⁄2 hours. (See “Setting the controls”
earlier in this section.)
The graph at the right is representative of
a normal, 31⁄2-hour Self-Cleaning cycle. Note
that the heating stops after 3 hours, but it
