Getting Started
Before first use
• Unpack: When unpacking the appliance, make sure to remove any packing
materials from the interior. Keep the original packaging carton and materials
in a safe place. It will help prevent any damage if the product needs to be
transported in the future. In the event it is to be disposed of, please recycle
all packaging materials where possible. Plastic wrapping can be a suffocation
hazard for babies and young children, so ensure all packaging materials are
out of their reach and disposed of safely.
• Inspect: Unwind the power supply cord to its full length and inspect it
for damage. Then check the microwave oven for any damage, such as a
misaligned or bent door, damaged door seals and sealing surfaces, broken or
loose door hinges and latches, dents inside the cavity or on the door.
WARNING: If there is any damage to the appliance or its cord, do not operate
the microwave oven! Contact our after sales support line.
• Read this manual to familiarise yourself with the parts and operating principles.
Pay particular attention to the safety advice on the previous pages.
• Clean: Wipe the inside surfaces of the microwave oven with a damp cloth.
Wash the glass tray with a soft cloth in warm water and a little dish detergent
to remove any dust from transport. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
• Position: Place the microwave oven on a flat, stable surface that can support
the weight of the oven plus the heaviest foods likely to be cooked in it.
WARNING: Do not place the microwave oven where heat, moisture or high
humidity are generated (such as above a cooktop), or near combustible
materials. Do not place it in a cabinet; it is intended to be used freestanding.
• Clearances: For correct operation, the microwave oven must have sufficient
airflow. Allow 20cm of space above the oven, 10cm at the back and 5cm
on both sides. Do not cover or block any openings on the appliance. Do not
remove the feet. Do not remove the distance holder at the back or sides, as it
ensures minimum distance from the wall for air circulation.
• Assembly: Place the support/roller ring in its position in the cavity base and
the shaft in the centre. Then fit the glass tray on top of the shaft, making sure
it sits securely in place and can move freely on the roller ring.
WARNING: Do not operate the appliance without the glass tray, roller ring and
shaft in their proper positions.
• Power cord: Make sure that the power cord does not run under the oven or
over any hot or sharp surface. Also ensure that the socket is readily accessible
so it can be easily unplugged in an emergency.

Grounding/earthing instructions
This appliance must be earthed (grounded). We accept no liability for damage
to the oven or personal injury resulting from failure to observe any electrical
connection procedures.
This oven is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with a grounding
plug. In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, earthing will reduce the risk of
an electric shock by providing a path of least resistance for the electric current.
The plug must be connected to an appropriate outlet that is installed and earthed
in accordance with all local standards and requirements. If unsure, consult an
electrician or a service representative. Do not, under any circumstances, cut or
remove the third (grounding) prong from the power plug.
WARNING: Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of electric shock.
It is recommended that a separate circuit be provided for use by the microwave
alone. The wires in the appliance power supply cord are coloured in accordance
as follows: green and yellow = earth; blue = neutral; brown = live.
NOTE: This product is Group 2 Class B ISM equipment. In Group 2 equipment,
radio-frequency energy is intentionally generated and/or used in the form
of electromagnetic radiation. Class B equipment is suitable for use in
domestic establishments and in establishments directly connected to
a low voltage power supply network which supplies buildings used for
domestic purposes.

Microwave cookware guide
• Cookware used for microwaving must be microwave safe. Use the table below
to help you select the right cookware and utensils for use in the oven.
Heat-resistant glass
Non heat-resistant glass
Heat-resistant ceramics
Microwave-safe plastic
Kitchen paper
Metal tray or metal rack
Aluminium foil or container
• We recommend round/oval dishes for microwave cooking rather than square/
oblong ones, as food in the corners of a container tends to overcook.
• Microwaves cannot penetrate metal, so do not use any cookware made of
or containing metal, such as dishes with a metallic trim, metal racks, trays or
utensils, aluminium foil, or foil containers.
• To check whether a utensil is suitable for use, place the empty utensil in
the microwave oven and heat at high power for 60 seconds. If the utensil
becomes very hot, do not use it in the microwave oven.
• Do not use recycled paper products when microwave cooking, as they may
contain small metal fragments which may cause sparks and/or fires.
Microwave cooking principles
• Watch the cooking time. Cook for the shortest amount of time indicated and
add more time as needed. Severely overcooked food can smoke or ignite.
• Cover the food, but not tightly, to prevent spattering and help food cook
• Turn foods over once during microwaving to speed up the cooking time for
smaller pieces of food. Large pieces must be turned over at least once.
• Arrange the food so the thickest parts are towards the outside of the dish.
• Take special care with the glass tray. Do not place hot food or utensils on
the cold turntable tray or frozen food or utensils on the hot tray. Let the tray
cool down before cleaning. Make sure your cooking container is dry, as a wet
surface may generate excessive heat which could damage the glass tray.

Multistage cooking
Your oven can be programmed to do several consecutive functions automatically,
which is useful for recipes that require more than one type of cooking. For
example, if you want to defrost food first, then cook it at a high power level (to
heat up fast) and then at a lower level (to simmer), you can set the three stages
in one multistage cooking program. During the program, the respective lights will
appear on the display screen, indicating which stage the oven is operating in.
The following example shows the steps involved in setting up such a program.
Example: To set the oven for three-stage program including
(a) a jet defrost program,
(b) 5 minutes at 100% power (first stage cooking),
(c) 10 minutes at 50% power (second stage cooking):
• Place the food into the microwave oven and close the door.
• Press the CANCEL pad.
• Input a jet defrost program (see opposite for instructions),
but DO NOT press START.
• Press the MEMORY pad and TIME pad once.
• Input time (5 minutes) and power level (100%) for the first stage microwave
cooking program, but DO NOT press START.
• Press the MEMORY pad and TIME pad once.
• Input time (10 minutes) and power level (50%) for the second stage microwave
cooking program.
• Press the START pad. During cooking, the display will show the icons of the
program currently in operation.
• Logically, Jet Defrost or Weight Defrost must precede any cooking function in a
multistage cooking program.
• The Express Cooking program cannot be set in multistage cooking.
