to another owner, or should you move house and leave the appliance,
always ensure that the book is supplied with the appliance so that the new
owner can be acquainted with the functioning of the appliance and the
Warnings
THESE WARNINGS ARE PROVIDED IN THE INTEREST OF SAFETY. YOU MUST
READ THEM CAREFULLY BEFORE INSTALLING OR USING THE APPLIANCE.
* Do not use this appliance for any other
purposes than the preparation of normal
domestic food. Take care to read the
instructions regarding loads and timings.
Also the recommendations/advice on
suitable containers and utensils (see
cookery book).
* DO NOT OPERATE THE OVEN
EMPTY. THE APPLIANCE MUST
NOT BE OPERATED WITHOUT
FOOD IN THE OVEN, OPERATION
IN THIS MANNER BEING LIKELY
TO DAMAGE THE APPLIANCE.
* DO NOT OPERATE THE OVEN
IF IT IS DAMAGED UNTIL IT HAS
BEEN REPAIRED BY A SERVICE
TECHNICIAN TRAINED BY THE
MANUFACTURER. IT IS
PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT
THAT THE OVEN DOOR CLOSES
PROPERLY AND THAT THERE IS
NO DAMAGE TO:-
(1) DOOR (WARPED) (2) HINGES
AND LATCHES (BROKEN OR
LOOSENED) (3) DOOR SEALS AND
SEALING SURFACES (BROKEN OR
CRACKED).
* IT IS DANGEROUS FOR ANY
PERSON OTHER THAN A SERVICE
TECHNICIAN TRAINED BY THE
MANUFACTURER TO PERFORM
SERVICE REPAIRS. |
* AIRFLOW BELOW, ABOVE AND
TO THE REAR OF A MICROWAVE
OVEN SHOULD NOT BE
RESTRICTED. (SEE
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS).
* ALWAYS KEEP THE DOOR SEAL
AND DOOR SURFACES CLEAN BY
WIPING REGULARLY WITH A
DAMP CLOTH, SO THAT ANY
GREASE, SOIL OR SPATTERS ARE
NOT ALLOWED TO BUILD UP,
SUCH BUILD UP COULD RESULT
IN LEAKAGE OF MICROWAVE
ENERGY FROM THE OVEN.
* When heating liquids in your
microwave oven, overheating of the liquid
beyond boiling point can occur without
the evidence of bubbling. This could
result in a sudden overspill of the hot
liquid and possible injury to the user. The
help prevent this possibility the following
steps should be observed:-
— Stir the liquid before placing the
container in the oven. |
— At the end of the heating time allow the
liquid to cool slightly before removing
the container from the oven using an
oven cloth for added protection.
* This appliance is designed to be
operated by adults. Children should not
be allowed to tamper with the controls or
play with the product.
* Any electrical work required to install
this appliance should be carried out by a
qualified person.
* It is dangerous to alter the
specifications or modify the product in
any way.
* Do not use this appliance if it is in
contact with water.
* Under no circumstances should live
animals be placed in a microwave oven.
* Do not use the oven for drying any
items.
Xx Do not let the timer continue to
operate after removing the food.
* No items must be stored in the
microwave oven even when the appliance
is not being used, as inadvertently
switching on the oven could cause a
hazard.
* Unplug the appliance if it 1s to be left
for a period of time, e.g. during holidays
or long weekends.
* Generally speaking, metal should not
be used in the oven when cooking,
because metal reflects microwave energy
and may cause arcing. Even when metal 1s
used for the limited application (e.g.,
when shielding chicken legs with foil), 1t
should not come into contact with oven
walls.
* Do not use capped bottles, jars or tins.
* Cooking vessels can get very hot. Care
should be taken that the dishes do not
come into contact with any plastic
surface. Wear protective gloves.
x Only use cooking containers
recommended for use in a microwave
oven.
* Should you wish to use a browning
dish, we would suggest that a suitable
insulator be placed between the glass tray
and the browning dish in order to prevent
damage by heat stress. A large heat
resistant and microwave proof glass plate
(e.g. PYREX), may be used as an
insulator. It is important that the
recommended preheating time of the dish
must not be exceeded.
* Do not cook eggs in the shell. Pressure
will build up inside the shell and it will
explode (even after cooking has stopped).
Do not reheat cooked eggs unless they are
scrambled or chopped. Puncture the yolk
before cooking eggs.
* Do not prepare popcorn in the oven.
The results are poor and it can be
dangerous.
* Do not heat oil or fat for deep frying.
The temperature of the oil cannot be
controlled and it may overheat.
* In common with other forms of
heating food, exceeding the
recommended cooking times may result
in burning the oven contents and
damaging your oven. When cooking foods
with a high sugar or fat content (such as:
Christmas pudding, mince pies or fruit
cake), be sure to follow the cooking
instructions carefully.
* Do not reheat drinks in plastic cups,
they could melt.
* Do not use a conventional meat
thermometer. They may be used outside
the oven to check temperature but not
during cooking.
* Be cautious when eating food direct
from the microwave oven as items with
high sugar or fat content can be very hot
inside.
* Always be careful when removing
cling film and lids from dishes after
cooking as the steam when released can
cause burns.
* Any foodstuffs with a ‘skin’, e.g.
potatoes, sausages, etc, must be pierced in
order to allow for the release of steam.
* Care and cleaning of the appliance are
important. Food deposits should not be
left on the interior cabinet. Do not place
any object between the oven front face
and the door.
* The door seal is designed to prevent
leakage of microwave energy during
cooking. Occasionally moisture may
appear around the oven door. This is
normal and does not necessarily indicate
the oven is leaking microwave energy.
* Infant feed should not be warmed 10 а
microwave oven once it is in the feeding
bottle.
* We do not recommend the use of any
form of microwave checking device which
may be available from a number of
commercial or retail outlets. In our
experience the results from the use of
il
such devices are variable and the readings
obtained from them are not always
accurate. If you are concerned about your
microwave please contact the appropriate
Service Centre or Customer Care Centre.
* The glass tray must be positioned in
the oven during use.

Installation
Please note: This microwave cooker has
been designed to be used in a domestic
household. Therefore the guarantee
supplied with this appliance may be
invalidated if it has been used for a
commercial or catering application. After
unpacking, ensure that all packing
materials have been removed from the
oven cavity.
Positioning
For installation instructions please refer
to the building-in kit supplied.
NOTE: Do not store cookbooks or the
instruction book inside or underneath the
oven. Do not place tea towels or utensils
over the cooling vents.
Electrical Connection
* THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE
EARTHED
For your convenience and safety, your
new Zanussi microwave oven comes ready
fitted with a moulded flex and plug. All
you need to do 1s push the plug into a 13
amp power socket and switch on. If for
any reason you need to replace this plug
with one of your own, you will find the
wires inside the flex are colour coded as
follows:
GREEN AND YELLOW - EARTH
BLUE — NEUTRAL
BROWN — LIVE
If you fit your own plug, the colours of
the wires in the mains lead of your
appliance may not correspond with the
markings identifying the terminals in
your plug. If this is the case proceed as
follows:
Connect the green and yellow (earth) wire
to the terminal in the plug which is
marked with the letter “E” or the earth
symbol + or coloured either green or
green and yellow.
2
Connect the blue (neutral) wire to the
terminal in the plug which is marked with
the letter “N” or coloured black.
Connect the brown (live) wire to the
terminal which is marked with the letter
‘L’ or coloured red.
The cut off plug should be disposed of to
avoid the risk of shock from the plug
being inserted into a 13 amp socket
elsewhere in the house.
Fuses
The appliance’s moulded-on plug 1s
supplied fitted with a 13 amp BS1362
fuse. If this fuse blows you can replace it
in the following way:
Remove the plug from the power socket
and use a small screwdriver to lever out
the red plastic fuse carrier located
between the plug’s prongs, together with
the old fuse. Fit in a new 13 amp fuse and
clip it back into the plug. Make sure your
new fuse 1s ‘ASTA’ approved and
complies with BS1362. If the carrier 1s
damaged you can get a new one from your
local Zanussi Service Agent, the details of
which can be obtained by looking under
‘Z’ 1n your telephone directory.
The plug must not be used without the
fuse cover fitted.
Safety
* Check that the supply flex and any
other wiring is positioned in such a way
that when the microwave oven is
operating its temperature at any point is
less than 50 degrees C above the ambient
temperature of the room.
* Never remove the rear panel of the
oven to gain access to the terminal board.
If an extension is required it should be
made using the standardised plug and the
external cable, which should be capable of
carrying the expected load.
* Check that the fuse and domestic
installation are suitable to carry the
electric load of this appliance (see rating
plate at the back of the oven).
* Check that the appliance 1$ properly
earthed according to existing rules and
regulations.
This appliance meets the requirements
laid down in the EEC Directive No 76/889
and amendment 82/499 relating to the
suppression of radio and TV interference.

BEFORE CLEANING.
It is important to wipe up all spillages as
these can affect the cooking time. The
spillages absorb microwave energy and
prolong the cooking time.
To keep the oven free from grease and soil
build-up, it should be cleaned with a
damp cloth after use. A soft nail brush can
be used to remove stubborn stains.
Odours can be eliminated from the inside
of the oven by boiling a solution of one
cup of water and several tablespoons of
lemon juice in the cavity. We would also
recommend occasionally wiping the oven
interior with a sterilising fluid, e.g.
Milton, in the interest of hygiene.
Only use a mild detergent, water and a
soft, clean cloth to clean the oven face and
other surfaces, and polish dry with a soft
cloth or paper towelling. Do not use
AEROSOL, CAUSTIC OR ABRASIVE
CLEANERS, or scrape the interior
surface with knives or other utensils. This
could cause the enamel paint to come off,
exposing the metal underneath. Any
exposed metal could cause sparking or
arcing, and further damage to the oven.
Wipe out crumbs that fall between the
door and the frame with a damp cloth. It
is important that the door seal area is kept
clean. If there is a greasy film on the oven
door, a small amount of vinegar water can
be used to remove the grease. Rinse with
cold water and polish dry with a soft cloth
or paper towelling.
ALWAYS KEEP THE DOOR SEAL
SURFACES CLEAN BY WIPING
REGULARLY WITH A DAMP
CLOTH, SO THAT ANY GREASE,
SOIL OR SPATTERS ARE NOT
ALLOWED TO BUILD UP. SUCH A
BUILD UP COULD RESULT IN
LEAKAGE OF MICROWAVE
ENERGY FROM THE OVEN.
Regularly check the door seal area, which
is formed by the inside face of the door,
for any signs of damage. If such damage 1s
seen do not use the oven until the damage
has been repaired by a Service Technician
trained by the manufacturer.
The glass tray may be removed and taken
to the sink to be cleaned or washed in the
dishwasher. Care should be taken to avoid
dropping the glass tray. Although it 1s
made of toughened glass, it will break if
not handled with normal care. Do not use
oven without glass tray in position.
The glass splash shield may be removed
for cleaning, but must be installed before
operating the oven as it is an integral part
of the air flow system. To remove, lift the
clip on one of the guides and slide the
splash shield forward until 1t can be held
with both hands and fully withdrawn. To
replace, carefully slide the shield through
the guides all the way to the back of the
oven, when the clip will automatically
drop down to retain the shield.
Light Bulb Replacement
I. Unplug the microwave oven from the power supply.
2. Remove the smaller of the two covers from the rear of the oven by removing the
screw.
3. Unscrew light bulb and replace only with a 40W round bulb with El4 screw cap.
4. Replace cover and screw. This cover must be in place before operating the oven.

Using your
microwave oven
Before using the microwave oven for the
first time, ensure that all packaging
materials have been removed from both
the outside and inside of the oven. Wipe
out the inside of the oven with a damp
cloth. Check that the door seal and sealing
surfaces are not broken or cracked, that
the door is not warped and that the hinges
and latches are not broken or loosened. If
you do find any damage, contact your
local Zanussi Network Service Centre.
Microwave cooking is very versatile. It
enables you to cook, reheat, roast,
simmer, hold-warm and even defrost with
speed and convenience.
As microwaving is such a new and fast
way of cooking, you should be able to be
more adventurous as you become more
familiar with this method of cooking.
To begin with something easy, heat a cup
of coffee in a mug for two minutes, but
open the door at any time and check if the
coffee 1s as hot as you like it. Next try
heating leftovers on a plate. An average
serving takes about 2-3 minutes on a
medium setting. Look for steam or test
the food to see if it is ready.
You can open the door at any stage. If
additional time is needed, add 1t
gradually. It 1s always better to under
estimate the cooking time than over
estimate.
Every recipe in the cookbook gives the
approximate cooking time. Because of
factors such as food temperature, dish
shape, arrangement of food and density of
food it is difficult to give a precise time.
Always start with a shorter time and add
time if needed.
The microwave oven cooks much faster
than conventional ovens. It is wise to take
special care when you are cooking
something for which specific timings have
not been recommended. This applies
particularly when reheating foods. Always
watch the cooking or heating of the food
and give 1t a short cooking time, adding
more until you have the required results.
You will soon learn the correct timings
for cooking or heating your favourite
foods. It is important to remember that
it is possible to burn foods if they are
cooked for too long, but the burning will
occur inside the food first and will only
become apparent by smell.
Please remember that the cookbook 1s
only a guide.
Operation of the
Control
The oven is operated by touch-sensitive
control pads on the control panel. A
digital display can show the cooking time
and timer or act as an ordinary digital
clock. Indicators show which of the
cooking functions you have selected.
An entry signal tone should be heard each
time you touch the control panel to
programme the oven, if you do not hear
this sound
1) You have not used enough pressure in
touching the pad.
2) You have made an incorrect entry.
In addition to the entry signal tone, 4
bleeps will sound at the end of the
cooking cycle.
Make sure the oven 1s plugged into a
power point. When the oven is plugged
in, the display will show: flashing on and
off.
Press the power switch and the display
will show 00:00.
You cannot programme the oven if the
door is not closed firmly.
If the electrical supply to your microwave
Power Levels
oven should be interrupted, the display
will show : flashing on and off, when the
power is restored. Don’t forget to reset
the clock for the correct time of day.
If you open the oven door during cooking,
the timer and cook cycle will hold. After
you have shut the door again, press the
START pad to continue cooking.
If you press the CANCEL pad during
cooking, the selected programme will be
abandoned and cooking stops. You will
see 00:00 on the display. To restart,
choose a cooking programme and press
the START pad.
If you pick a programme but want to
change it before starting to cook, simply
touch the CANCEL pad and
reprogramme.
When the timer for all sequences/
programmes counts down to zero, the
audible signal will sound and 00:00 will
reappear on the display. Press the power
switch and the display will show the time
of day.
Note:
When using the timer only function 00:00
will show at the end of the programme.
Press either cancel or clock to show the
time of day.
When you touch the power level pad the letter “H” will show in the display. This
indicates that the oven is automatically set to cook at High (100%) power level.
When you change the power level the number which you programme will be shown on
the display. For example, if you change the power level to 50% by touching the number
5, the number 50 will be displayed. To check a power level during a cook cycle, simply
touch the power level pad to recall the information for 3 seconds. The power level can
be changed at any time during the cycle. Simply touch the power level pad and
programme the revised power level.
Important
The oven door must be closed to start all programmes/sequences.
The clock
The digital 24 hour clock operates even when the oven is not in use. The clock should
always be set and running. While most timing can be done if the clock 1s not set, the
TIME/START feature cannot. The oven should be turned off by the switch button
before setting the clock.
To recall the time of day during cooking, simply touch the CLOCK pad and the correct
time of day will appear for 3 seconds on the display window.
If no time is set, or the wrong time, (e.g. 33:00), a flashing colon appears in the display
window. If the oven is unplugged or the power is off, the time will be lost. When power
is restored, the flashing colon will appear to remind you to reset the clock. If an
incorrect time appears, touch the CLOCK pad.
To set the clock to the correct time of day.

Using the defrost facility
Food is automatically defrosted at a low setting (30%), and you should never attempt to
defrost it at a higher power.
The oven automatically cycles on and off which allows the heat to equalize throughout
the food. At higher power levels, you will find that before the food is completely
defrosted on the inside, the outer edges may begin cooking.
It is important to thoroughly defrost food before cooking.

Using the browner
The Browner in your microwave gives food a light, golden-brown ‘finished’ look and
adds a little extra crispness to foods. Remember to use heat resistant utensils when
using the browner.
The following will give you a guide to browning times. The exact time will depend on
the type of food, whether the element is still warm from an earlier browning operation
and the amount of browning desired. The food should be browned on the shelf position
that places the top of the food close to the element. All excess juices and liquids should
be drained before browning.

Temperature Probe
Your microwave oven is equipped with a
removable temperature probe. It is easy to
use but you should follow the steps given
here carefully.
To use the Temperature Probe
1. Insert the pointed metal thermometer
portion (B) of the temperature probe into
the food. It is easier to position the probe
correctly if this 1s done while the food is
outside the oven. Be sure to insert the
probe at least 25mm/1” into the food.
For casseroles, place the thermometer in
the centre of the food. When cooking
meat the probe should be inserted from
the side so that the tip of the probe
penetrates to the centre of the meat, away
from boney or fatty sections. For poultry,
insert through the breast to thigh area.
2. Place the food inside the oven.
3. Plug the probe jack (A) into the outlet
in the cavity wall. A ‘bleep’ will sound
when the probe 1s securely inserted.
4. Avoid placing the rubber cord (C)
directly on or in the food.
5. Programme oven to cook by
temperature (see following instructions).
6. When the food reaches the
programmed temperature, the oven will
turn off automatically. An audible signal
will sound 4 bleeps and the display will
revert to 00 with the probe indicator bar
flashing for temperatures below 60°C.
7. Unplug the probe jack from the outlet
before removing the food from the oven.
Use and Care of Temperature
Probe
1. DO NOT OPERATE THE OVEN
EMPTY WITH THE TEMPERATURE
PROBE INSIDE. TO AVOID THIS
POSSIBILITY, DO NOT LEAVE THE
PROBE IN THE OVEN WHEN NOT
IN USE.
14
8. Thermometer
2. The temperature probe should be
unplugged and removed from the oven
when not in use. Store the probe in a safe,
convenient place outside the oven.
3. Carefully wash the temperature probe
in warm soapy water and wipe dry. It 1s
immersible, but should not be soaked. Do
not wash 10 dishwater.
4. Insert the thermometer portion of the
probe at least 25mm/1" into the food.
5. The temperature probe should never
touch the interior walls or door of the
oven.
6. Do not use the temperature probe
when browning.
7. The temperature probe is designed
specifically for use in this microwave
oven. Do not substitute any other probe
for this one. The probe cannot be used in
conventional cooking or in other
microwave ovens.
8. Avoid harsh treatment of the probe.
Do not drop the probe. It is a
thermometer; handle 1t carefully.
9. Oven gloves may be needed when
removing the temperature probe.
10. Do not remove the probe from the
receptacle or from the food by pulling on
the cord. Use the insulated handle.
11. Do not try to force the temperature
probe into solidly frozen food. Always
defrost before using the probe.
12. Temperature readings are given for
some recipes which should be cooked
covered. If you wish to use the probe,
cover the food with cling film and insert
the probe through the cling film.
13. You will often notice a change in the
temperature readout after stirring. This is
normal and also occurs in conventional
cooking.
14. Temperatures may be set from 34°C
to 92°C.
15. Important
Only the temperature probe supplied with
this oven must be used. Should a
replacement be required it must be of the
correct type and obtained from Electrolux
service organisation
Probe — General
Guidelines
1. Always insert the probe into the centre
of the leanest/thickest part of the food.
2. Try to ensure the probe doesn’t touch
any bone and isn’t inserted through any
fat. This tends to give a false reading.
3. When you first start using the probe, 1t
is a good idea to estimate the time cooking
should take. Then, if the temperature
rises too quickly, you will know that the
probe 1s not positioned correctly and
should be moved. You'll soon learn how
best to position the probe.
4. The probe only works well with foods
of the same densities e.g. a solid joint of
meat (preferably without bone) or all
liquid. It would be less effective with
cubed meat in liquid.
5. Temperatures for all foods other than
meat are only a guideline. Adjust to suit
your own personal preference.
6. Ensure probe is fitted so that the metal
point doesn’t come into contact with the
sides of the oven.

Oven Shelf
Your new microwave oven includes a
removable metal shelf to increase the
capacity of the oven. The shelf is designed
specifically for use in your oven and will
not interfere with the correct distribution
of microwaves. No other shelf should be
used.
The shelf can be used in either of two
positions. You should choose the position
that suits the sizes of dishes being used.
The shelf must be removed when it is not
in use.
The shelf is used for
1. Cooking or reheating several items of
food at one time in the oven.
2. Increasing the oven capacity so that
complete oven meals can be cooked in a
simple one or two step operation. See
‘Planning and Cooking’ for hints on how
to benefit from your oven shelf.
3. The metal shelf should only be used
when employing both cooking levels, or
browning. On no account may it be used
when microwave cooking on one level
only.
4. The shelf will allow you to select the
proper distance between the foods and the
browner element.
NOTE: When browning and under some
circumstances the metal shelf will become
hot. Oven gloves should be used if the
shelf is to be handled during or just after
cooking.

Planning and
cooking
. . . multi foods and complete oven
meals in the microwave oven
When cooking several food items or
complete oven meals, the location of each
item is important. When combining
cooking of several dishes, those that
require the longest cooking times are
placed on the shelf whilst those requiring
shorter cooking or heating times are
placed on the glass tray. This is because
the microwaves first start cooking the
food at the top of the oven.
Remember that as the amount of food
placed in the oven is increased the
cooking times must also be increased.
Therefore, complete oven meals will
require a longer cooking time than the
cooking of one food item.
To get a general idea of how much time a
complete meal will require, add up the
amount of time required for each food, 1f
cooked separately, and this will be the
approximate cooking time required. In
most cases, the cooking of a complete
meal at one time will not save significant
cooking times. However, the convenience
of being able to place all the food in the
oven at the same time will make
microwave cooking more convenient.
When planning oven meals,take into
consideration the types of food and how
quickly they cook in the oven. It may be
necessary for you to check the food during
cooking, removing some food ahead of
time or allowing some food to cook for a
longer period of time. In most cases you
can place several items of food in the
microwave oven at the same time.
However, some food that takes longer to
cook should be put in the oven earlier,
and faster cooking food, such as rolls
should be put in the oven later in the
cooking period.
Placing food directly over each other on
the top and bottom shelves will slow down
cooking of the food on the bottom glass
tray.
Place small cups or dishes carefully on the
shelf so they do not tip.

Questions and
Answers
Q Does it harm the oven if it is
accidentally operated with no food in it?
A Severe damage can occur if the oven 1s
turned on when it is empty.
Q Is eating food cooked in a microwave
oven harmful?
A Microwaves are simply a source of heat
energy just like gas and electricity. All
three produce cooking in the food itself.
Therefore food cooked in a microwave
oven 1s not harmful to eat.
Q Why do I have moisture in the
microwave oven after cooking?
A The moisture on the inside of your
microwave oven is normal and nothing to
worry about. It is caused by the steam
from the cooking food hitting a cool oven
surface. Wipe excess moisture from the
inside of the oven after each use.
Q What causes the oven interior light to
dim when using Variable Power?
A This is normal and indicates that the
oven is operating and cycling normally.
Q Foods cooked in a microwave oven
seem to cool off faster than conventionally
cooked foods. Why is that?
A Often the dish used to store foods in
the refrigerator is then used for heating
the food in the microwave oven. In this
case, the cold dish absorbs heat from the
food. It may be necessary to heat the food
for an additional time.
22
If the oven does
not turn on
* Check that the appliance is connected
correctly.
* Check that the plug is firmly
connected to the wall socket and that the
socket 1s switched on. Check the power
supply by plugging in another appliance.
* Replace the fuse in the plug with
another of the appropriate rating.
% Check that the fuse in the fuse box is
intact.
* Ensure that you have pressed ‘Start’ to
commence cooking, and that the door is
firmly closed.
* If the cooking results are not
satisfactory, ensure that you have
programmed the oven correctly.
* Check that the food 1s not covered with
excessive foil and you have not used a
metal lid. Also check that the air vents are
not obstructed.
* If the oven light does not operate,
check the fuse in the plug.
