WARNING: Check the microwave oven for any damage, such as misaligned or bent door, damaged door seals and sealing surface, broken or loose door hinges and latches and dents inside the cavity or on the door. The door should fit squarely, securely and close smoothly. The door seals must be free from food and have no burn marks. If there is any damage, please do not operate the microwave oven and contact a qualified service person. Practical Hints:• The microwave oven should be placed on a flat stable surface which can hold the weight of the microwave oven and the heaviest of food likely to be cooked inside. • Do not place the microwave oven where heat, moisture, or high humidity are generated or near combustible materials. • For correct operation, the microwave oven must have sufficient airflow. This requires a gap of 30 cms above, 10 cms at the back and 15 cms on both the sides. Do not cover or block any openings. • Do not remove the feet. • Do not place anything on top of the oven. • Do not operate the microwave oven without the glass tray, roller support & the shaft in their proper positions. • Make sure that the power supply cord is undamaged and does not run under the microwave oven or over any hot or sharp surfaces. • Ensure that the socket is readily accessible so that it can be easily unplugged in case of emergency. • Do not use the microwave oven outdoors. • The appliance must be grounded. The oven is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. It must be plugged into a wall socket that is properly installed and grounded as it reduces the risk of electric shock in case of short circuit. Using a high voltage is dangerous and may result in a fire or other accidents causing the oven damage. NOTE: Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of electric shock. The microwave oven should be operated on a separate circuit from other appliances. Failure to do so may cause the power board fuse to blow, and or food to cook slower. How to use your Microwave Oven :The appliance is intended to heat, cook or dry food for indoor household use only. • Arrange the food carefully. Place the thickest area towards the outside of the dish. • Watch the cooking time. Cook for the shortest amount of time and add more as required. Food severely overcooked can smoke or ignite thereby causing damage. • Ensure that you cover your food while cooking. Covers prevent splattering and the food cooks evenly. • Turn the food over once during the cycle to speed cooking of foods such as chicken and burgers. Large items like roasts must be turned over at least once. • Rearrange foods such as meat balls halfway through the cooking cycle both from top to bottom and center of the dish to the outside.

When food splatters or spilled liquids adhere to oven walls, wipe with a damp cloth. Mild detergent may be used if the oven gets very dirty. Avoid the use of spray or other harsh cleaners as they may stain, streak or dull the door surface. • Turn off the oven and remove the power plug from the socket before cleaning. • The outside surfaces should be cleaned with damp cloth. To prevent damage to the operating parts inside the oven, water should not be allowed to seep into the ventilating openings. • Wipe the door and window, sides of the oven, the door seals and adjacent parts frequently with a damp cloth to remove any spills or splatters. Do not use abrasive cleaners. • Do not allow the operating panel to become wet. Clean with a soft damp cloth. When cleaning the control panel, leave the oven door open to prevent the oven from accidentally turning on. • If steam accumulates inside or around the outside of the oven door, wipe with a soft cloth.
