IMPORTANT! IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS: READ CAREFULLY AND KEEP
FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.
If food being heated begins to smoke, DO NOT OPEN THE
DOOR. Turn off and unplug the oven and wait until the food
has stopped smoking. Opening the door while food is
smoking may cause a fire. Only use microwave-safe
containers and utensils. Do not leave the oven unattended
when using disposable plastic, paper or other combustible
food containers. Clean the waveguide cover, the oven
cavity, the turntable and turntable support after use.
These must be dry and free from grease. Built-up grease
may overheat and begin to smoke or catch fire.
To avoid the possibility of injury
WARNING!
Do not operate the oven if it is damaged or
malfunctioning.
Check the following before use:
a) The door; make sure the door closes properly and
ensure it is not misaligned or warped.
b) The hinges and door safety latches; check to make sure
they are not broken or loose.
2
1. Neue MG 876_Layout 1 22/05/2013 11:20 Page 3
c) The door seals and sealing surfaces; ensure that they
have not been damaged.
d) Inside the oven cavity or on the door; make sure there
are no dents.
e) The power supply cord and plug; ensure that they are
not damaged.
Never adjust, repair or modify the oven yourself. It is
hazardous for anyone other than a competent person to
carry out any service or repair operation which involves the
removal of a cover which gives protection against exposure
to microwave energy.
Do not allow grease or dirt to build up on the door seals and
adjacent parts. Follow the instructions for “Care and
cleaning”. Clean the oven at regular intervals and remove
any food deposits. Failure to maintain the oven in a clean
condition could lead to a deterioration of the surface that
could adversely affect the life of the appliance and possibly
result in a hazardous situation.
Do not attempt to replace the oven lamp yourself or allow
anyone who is not authorised by ELECTROLUX to do so. If
the oven lamp fails, please consult your dealer or call an
authorised ELECTROLUX service agent.
To avoid the possibility of explosion and sudden boiling
WARNING!
Liquids and other foods must not be heated in
sealed containers since they are liable to
explode.
Microwave heating of beverages can result in delayed
eruptive boiling, therefore care has to be taken when
handling the container.
Do not cook eggs in their shells and whole hard boiled eggs
should not be heated in microwave ovens since they may
3
1. Neue MG 876_Layout 1 22/05/2013 11:20 Page 4
explode even after microwave cooking has ended.
To cook or reheat eggs which have not been scrambled or
mixed, pierce the yolks and the whites, or the eggs may
explode. Shell and slice hard boiled eggs before reheating
them in the microwave oven.
To avoid burns, always test food temperature and stir before
serving and pay special attention to the temperature of food
and drink given to babies, children or the elderly.
Keep children away from the door and accessible parts that may
become hot when the grill is in use. Children should be kept
away to prevent them burning themselves. Do not touch the
oven door, outer cabinet, rear cabinet, oven cavity, ventilation
openings, accessories and dishes during GRILL mode, DUAL
GRILL mode and AUTO COOK operation as they will become
hot. Before cleaning make sure they are not hot.
To avoid the misuse by children
WARNING!
The appliance and its accessible parts become hot
during use. Children less than 8 years of age shall be
kept away unless continuously supervised.
This appliance can be used by children aged from 8 years
and above and persons with reduced physical, sensory or
mental capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge if
they have been given supervision or instruction concerning
use of the appliance in a safe way and understand the
hazards involved. Children should be supervised to ensure
that they do not play with the appliance. Cleaning and user
maintenance shall not be made by children unless they are
aged from 8 years and above and supervised.

To avoid the danger of fire
The microwave oven should not be left unattended
during operation. Power levels that are too high or
cooking times that are too long may overheat foods
resulting in a fire. The electrical outlet must be
readily accessible so that the unit can be unplugged
easily in an emergency. It is recommended that a
separate circuit serving only this appliance be
provided. Do not store or use the oven outdoors.
Do not place flammable materials near the oven or
ventilation openings. Do not block the ventilation
openings. Remove all metallic seals, wire twists, etc.,
from food and food packages. Arcing on metallic
surfaces may cause a fire. Do not use the microwave
oven to heat oil for deep frying. The temperature
cannot be controlled and the oil may catch fire. To
make popcorn, only use special microwave popcorn
makers. Do not store food or any other items inside
the oven. Check the settings after you start the oven
to ensure the oven is operating as desired. Do not
operate the oven with the door open or alter the door
safety latches in any way. Do not operate the oven if
there is an object between the door seals and
sealing surfaces.
Individuals with PACEMAKERS should check with
their doctor or the manufacturer of the pacemaker for
precautions regarding microwave ovens.
To avoid the possibility of electric shock
Under no circumstances should you remove the outer
cabinet. Never spill or insert any objects into the door
lock openings or ventilation openings. In the event of
a spill, turn off and unplug the oven immediately and
call an authorised ELECTROLUX service agent. Do
not immerse the power supply cord or plug in water
or any other liquid. Do not allow the power supply
cord to run over any hot or sharp surfaces, such as
the hot air vent area at the top rear of the oven.
If the power supply cord of this appliance is
damaged, it must be replaced with a special cord.
The exchange must be made by an authorised
ELECTROLUX service agent.
To avoid the possibility of explosion and sudden
boiling
Never use sealed containers. Remove seals and lids
before use. Sealed containers can explode due to a
build up of pressure even after the oven has been
turned off. Take care when microwaving liquids.
Use a wide-mouthed container to allow bubbles
to escape.
To prevent sudden eruption of boiling liquid and
possible scalding:
• Stir liquid prior to heating/reheating.
• It is advisable to insert a glass rod or similar
utensil into the liquid whilst reheating.
• Let liquid stand for at least 20 seconds in the oven
at the end of cooking time to prevent delayed
eruptive boiling.
Pierce the skin of such foods as potatoes, sausages
and fruit before cooking, or they may explode.
To avoid the possibility of burns
Use pot holders or oven gloves when removing food
from the oven to prevent burns. Always open
containers, popcorn makers, oven cooking bags, etc.,
away from the face and hands to avoid steam burns.
Temperature of the container is not a true indication
of the temperature of the food or drink; always check
the food temperature. Always stand back from the
oven door when opening to avoid burns from
escaping steam and heat. Slice stuffed baked foods
after heating to release steam and avoid burns.
Do not lean or swing on the oven door. Do not play
with the oven or use it as a toy. Children should be
taught all important safety instructions: use of pot
holders, careful removal of food coverings; paying
special attention to packaging (e.g. self-heating
materials) designed to make food crisp, as they may
be extra hot.
Other warnings
Never modify the oven in any way. This oven is for
home food preparation only and may only be used for
cooking food. It is not suitable for commercial or
laboratory use.
To promote trouble-free use of your oven and
avoid damage
Never operate the oven when it is empty. Doing so
may damage the oven. When using a browning dish
or self-heating material, always place a heat-resistant
insulator such as a porcelain plate under it to prevent
damage to the turntable and turntable support due to
heat stress. The preheating time specified in the
dish’s instructions must not be exceeded. Do not use
metal utensils, which reflect microwaves and may
cause electrical arcing. Do not put cans in the oven.
Only use the turntable and the turntable support
designed for this oven. Do not operate the oven
without the turntable.
5
1. Neue MG 876_Layout 1 22/05/2013 11:20 Page 6
To prevent the turntable from breaking:
• Before cleaning the turntable with water, leave the
turntable to cool.
• Do not put hot foods or hot utensils on a cold
turntable.
• Do not put cold foods or cold utensils on a hot
turntable.
Do not place anything on the outer cabinet during
operation. Do not use plastic containers for
microwaving if the oven is still hot from using the
GRILL mode, DUAL GRILL mode and AUTO COOK
operation because they may melt. Plastic containers
must not be used during above modes unless the
container manufacturer says they are suitable.
IMPORTANT! If you are unsure how to connect
your oven, please consult an authorised,
qualified electrician.
Neither the manufacturer nor the dealer can accept
any liability for damage to the oven or personal injury
resulting from failure to observe the correct electrical
connection procedure. Water vapour or drops may
occasionally form on the oven walls or around the
door seals and sealing surfaces. This is a normal
occurrence and is not an indication of microwave
leakage or a malfunction.

Microwave cooking advice
Foods high in fat or sugar (e.g. Christmas pudding, mince pies) require less heating time. Care
should be taken as overheating can lead to fire.
For even cooking make all the pieces the same size.
The initial temperature of food affects the amount of cooking time needed. Cut into foods with
fillings (e.g. jam doughnuts) to release heat or steam.
Place the thickest parts of food towards the outside of the dish (e.g. chicken drumsticks).
Use vented microwave cling film or a suitable lid.
Foods with a shell, skin or membrane must be pierced in several places before cooking or
reheating as steam will build up and may cause food to explode (e.g. potatoes, fish, chicken,
sausages).
IMPORTANT! Eggs should not be heated using microwave power as they may explode,
even after cooking has ended (e.g. poached, hard boiled).
Stir, turn and rearrange For even cooking it is essential to stir, turn and rearrange food during cooking. Always stir and
rearrange from the outside towards the centre.
Stand
Standing time is necessary after cooking to enable the heat to disperse equally throughout the
food.
Shield
Warm areas can be shielded with small pieces of foil, which reflect microwaves (e.g. legs and
wings on a chicken).
Microwave cooking
Your oven has 6 power levels.

Suggested use
Used for fast cooking or reheating (e.g. soup, casseroles, canned food, hot beverages, vegetables,
fish).
Used for longer cooking of dense foods such as roast joints, meat loaf and plated meals, also for
sensitive dishes such as cheese sauce and sponge cakes. At this reduced setting, the sauce will
not boil over and food will cook evenly without over cooking at the sides.
For dense foods which require a long cooking time when cooked conventionally (e.g. beef dishes)
it is advisable to use this power setting to ensure the meat will be tender.
To defrost, select this power setting, to ensure that the dish defrosts evenly. This setting is also
ideal for simmering rice, pasta, dumplings and cooking egg custard.
For gentle defrosting (e.g. cream gateaux or pastry).
For standing/kitchen timer.

Care and cleaning
CAUTION!
Turntable and turntable support
DO NOT USE COMMERCIAL OVEN CLEANERS,
STEAM CLEANERS, ABRASIVE, HARSH
CLEANERS, ANY THAT CONTAIN SODIUM
HYDROXIDE OR SCOURING PADS ON ANY PART
OF YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN.
CLEAN THE OVEN AT REGULAR INTERVALS AND
REMOVE ANY FOOD DEPOSITS. Failure to
maintain the oven in a clean condition could lead to a
deterioration of the surface that could adversely affect
the life of the appliance and possibly result in a
hazardous situation.
Remove the turntable and turntable support from the
oven. Wash the turntable and turntable support in mild
soapy water. Dry with a soft cloth. Both the turntable
and the turntable support are dishwasher safe.
The outside of your oven can be cleaned easily with
mild soap and water. Make sure the soap is wiped off
with a moist cloth, and dry the exterior with a soft
towel.
Racks
Oven exterior
Control panel
Open the door before cleaning to de-activate the
control panel. Care should be taken when cleaning
the control panel. Using a cloth dampened with water
only, gently wipe the panel until it becomes clean.
Avoid using excessive amounts of water. Do not use
any sort of chemical or abrasive cleaner.
Door
To remove all trace of dirt, regularly clean both sides
of the door, the door seals and sealing surfaces with
a soft, damp cloth. Do not use harsh abrasive
cleaners or sharp metal scrapers to clean the oven
door glass since they can scratch the surface, which
may result in shattering of the glass.
These should be washed in a mild washing up liquid
solution and dried. The racks are dishwasher safe.
IMPORTANT! A steam cleaner should not be
used.
Oven interior
For cleaning, wipe any splatters or spills with a soft
damp cloth or sponge after each use while the oven
is still warm. For heavier spills, use a mild soap and
wipe several times with a damp cloth until all residues
are removed. Do not remove the waveguide cover.
Make sure that mild soap or water does not penetrate
the small vents in the walls which may cause damage
to the oven.
Do not use spray type cleaners on the oven interior.
Heat up your oven regularly by using the grill.
Remaining food or fat splashed can cause smoke or
a bad smell.
