Energy ConsewatlonTips
A. Microwave Cooking
1. Use proper power level as recommended and
DO NOT OVERCOOK.
2. Do not operate the oven while empty. If by accident the oven should run empty a minute or two,
no harm is done. However, try to avoid operating
the oven empty at all times–saves energy and
also ensures good long term life of oven.
B. Ov~~ cooking
1. Preheat the oven only when necessary. Most
foods will cook satisfactorily without preheating.
If you find preheating is necessary, keep an eye
on the indicator light, and put food in the oven
promptly after the light goes out.
2. Always turn oven OFF before removing food.
—
.
3. During baking, avoid frequent door openings.
Keep door open as short a time as possible
when it is opened.
4. For self-cleaning oven, be sure to wipe up excess spillage before self-cleaning operation.
5. Cook complete oven meals instead of just one
food item. Potatoes, other vegetables, and some
desserts will cook together with a main-dish casserole, meat loaf, chicken or roast. Choose
foods that cook at the same temperature in approximately the same time.
6. Use residual heat in oven’ whenever possi~i~ to
finish cooking casseroles, oven meals, etc. Also
add rolls or precooked desserts to warm dven,
using residual heat to warm them.

Plastic utensils designed for microwave
cooking are very useful, but should be used
carefully. Even microwave plastic may not
be as tolerant of overcooking conditions as
are glass or ceramic materials and may
soften or char if subject to short periods of
overcooking, In longer exposures to overcooking, the food and containers may eVMT
ignite. For these reasons: 1) Use microwave
plastics only and use them in strict compliance with the container manufacturer’s
recommendations. 2) Do not subject empty
containers to microwaving. 3) Do not permit
Ochildren
to use plastic containers without
complete supervision.

Automatic
Roasting
Auto Roast uses thetemperature probe to cook to
the desired serving temperature. Unlike Temp Cook,
which uses a single power level, Auto Roast uses
up to 3 power settings which automatically switch
during roasting, thus providing even tender cooking
results without overcooking.
e
Just as in conventional roasting, only tender roasts
should be Auto Roasted until specified internal teme
peratures are reached. Less tender roasts should
be microwaved by time, according to the Cookbook
which comes with your oven. Complete information
on preparing roasts for microwaving is in yourI
Cookbook.

Questions
m“ldAnswers
Q. Are there any particular trivets
that work better than others?
A. Yes, flat glass trivets such as
lids or dish covers give more even
cooking results than plastic trivets.
Also, ceramic ridge-bottomed roasting dishes work well. Plastic trivets
require meat to be turned over
more frequently because the grid
design and legs allow the bottom
of the meat to stay cooler as it
cooks, than glass trivets do.
Q. Is it necessary to always cover
foods during Auto Roast?
A. No, but a loose covering helps
prevent spattering and hold moisture in food.
Q. Why was my roast not fully
cooked even though the temperature on the readout was correct
and Auto’ Roast completed?
A. When cooking with Auto Roast,
the temperature probe must be
inserted properly as fully described
in the Cookbook. After turning meat
over or rotating, the probe should
be checked to make sure it hasn’t
slipped or changed position.
—
9
Q. Last time I used Auto Roast
I removed the roast from the oven
to turn it over. When I replaced
roast in oven and reconnected the
meat probe, a lower temperature
.
appeared. Why?
A. The oven and roast may have
cooled to below the temperature
when you removed it, or probe
may have been repositioned. Continue roasting and numbers will
soon count upward again.

Questions
and Answers
Q. I set my oven for the time called
for in the recipe but at the end of
the time allowed, my dish wasn’t
done. What happened?
A. Since house power varies due
to time or location, many Time
Cook recipes give you a time range
to prevent overcooking. Set the
oven for minimum time, test the
food for doneness, and cook your
dish a little longer, if necessary.
Step 3: Select your time. Touch
1, 2 and Ofor a minute and 20 seconds. 1:20 and signal light above
TIME COOK appear on display. If
another Power Level is desired
touch POWER LEVEL and the
number, although Power Level 10
(HIGH) is preferred for this cup of
coffee.
@ Make sure all utensils used in
your microwave oven are labeled
“suitable for microwaving”. Check
your Cookbook for specific test to
determine “microwave-safe” utensils.
o Paper towels, wax paper, and
plastic wrap can be used to cover *
dishes in order to retain moisture
and prevent spattering.
e Most microwaved foods require
stirring, rotating, or rearranging.
Check your Cookbook for specific
instructions for the food you are
microwaving.
Step 4 Touch START. Time
counting down shows on display.
Q. I want to cook my dish on a
Power Level other than HIGH, what
do I need to do?
A. To change the Power Level,
touch the POWER LEVEL pad after
entering desired cooking time.
Enter the desired number and then
touch START.
Q. Can I interrupt my Time Cook
function to check the food?
A. Yes. To resume cooking, simply
close the door and touch START.
NOTE: Microwave power will not
come on until you are ready. You
must touch START for cooking to
begin.
10
e
@ Some foods such as unshelled
eggs and hot dogs must be
pricked to allow steam to escape
during cooking.
Q. I touched the number pads and
selected my power level. When I
touched START, however, my oven
didn’t come on. Why not?
A. The TIME COOK pad must be
touched before setting the number
pads or else your oven will not begin cooking.
Q. I tried to change Power Level
but the display changed back to
cooking time. Why?
A. After touching Power Level pad

To understand the Quick Set control, it is important to know what the numbers mean and what the
sequence is. The first and second numbers, if setting a three digit Code, indicate t,he amount of time
you desire; the last control entry number is always
the Power Level. For example, 125 means 12 min-
How toDefrost
The Defrost setting is designed for
even thawing necessary for large
amounts of food and is one of the
most important advantages of a
microwave oven, making defrostg quick and easy with little atten@ on. Power Level 3 is automatically
set for defrosting, but you may
change this for more flexibility. See
your Cookbook for the complete
defrosting chart.
To become better acquainted with
your Defrost function, defrost frozen pork chops by following the
steps below.
Step 1: Place package of frozen
chops in the oven and close door.

DefrostingTips
@Foods frozen in paper
or plastic
can be defrosted in the package.
o For even defrosting, many foods
need to be turned over, rotated, or
broken up part of the way through
the defrosting time.
o Pre-packpged frozen dinners
can be defrosted and microwave
cooked.
e Check your Cookbook for other
defrosting tips.
Q. Can I open the door during DEFROST to check on the progress
of my food?
A. Yes. You may open the door at
any time during microwaving. To
resume defrosting, close the door
and press START.
Q. When I enter a fourth digit
using Quick Set control, nothing
happens. What went wrong?
A.The oven will take only 2 or 3
numbers. If more are pressed, oven
does not respond. Touch Clear/Off
and begin again.
Q. Why don’t the defrosting times
in the Cookbook seem right for my
food?
A. Cookbook times are average.
Defrosting time can vary according
to the temperature in your freezer,
Set your oven for the time indicated in your Cookbook. If your
food is still not completely thawed
at the end of that time, re-set your
oven and adjust the time accordingly.
Q. Can I select a Power Level other
than automatic Power Level 3 for
defrosting?
A. Yes. Some smaller foods may be
defrosted quicker on higher Power
Levels but for even, carefree defrosting, Power Level 3 is suggested. Check the chart in the
Cookbook for specific times and
Power Levels.

For many foods, internal temperature is the best
test of doneness.
Roasts or poultry are cooked to perfection when
temperature cooking. Heating or reheating foods
accurately to a serving temperature you desire is
simple and easy.
TElvlP COOK takes the guesswork out of cooking
because the oven shuts off automatically when the

Quest!ons
and Answers
Q. After I followed the steps and
touched START, a signal sounded
and oven did not start. What is
wrong?
A. If you set the temperature either
below 80° or greater than 199° the
oven will not start. To re-enter,
touch CLEAR/OFF pad and begin
steps again.
Q. Oven sounded and would not
start although I entered the temperature correctly. What is wrong?
A. If you have not securely seated
the end of the probe into the
receptacle in the oven wall, if you
touch TEMP COOK and have forgotten to use the probe or if the
actual food temperature is higher
than set temperature, oven will
sound and not start.
Q. Can I leave my probe in the
oven if it’s not inserted in the food?
A. No. If the probe is left inside the
oven, touching the oven wall, and
not inserted in food, you may damage the oven.
Q. How do I know what temperature to set?
A. Your Cookbook contains sections on all types of foods showing
the temperatures needed to cook
the foods to different degrees of
doneness. For reheating, refer to

CookingTips
Foil may be used to line the
broiler pan and rack. However,
be sure to cut openings in the
foil to correspond with the slits
in the broiler rack so fat drips
into the pan below.
For all weights of chicken, broil
with door closed.
Placing food closer to the top
of the oven increases smoking,
spattering, exterior browning
on the meat and the possibility
of food fat catching on fire. Always keep rack 3-5 inches
from the broiling unit.
CookingTips
Be sure meat is cooked to your
satisfaction. Most meats continue to cook slightly while
standing after being removed
from the oven. This should be
taken into consideration when
determining your cooking time.
Always use a roasting pan that
fits the size of your meat. A
roast placed in a pan too small
for its size will drip over the
edge.
You may cook frozen meat
roasts without thawing. However, you must allow more
cooking time for large roasts,
add 10-25 minutes per pound,
For roasts under 5 pounds, add
10 minutes per pound.
To slow down surface browning
on turkeys, you can use a foil
“tent”. The tent-shaped foil
should be laid loosely over the
poultry so the heat can circulate
under the foil.
Most frozen poultry should be
thawed before cooking to ensure it is done evenly. Some,
however, can be cooked successfully
without
thawing.
Check the packer’s label for
specific directions.
Self-CleaningYourConventionalOven
If done properly, it will take only a few moments to
start the self-cleaning cycle on your range. After
setting your range to self-clean, a high heat temperature removes the soil in the oven cavity. The dirt
will then disappear by turning into an ash waste or
evaporating into an odorless and colorless vapor.
When the cycle is complete, allow your range to
cool and enjoy combination cooking in a sparkling
clean oven.
STEP 1: Remove all cookware
and food as well as heavy soil cleposits from the oven. Clean spatters or spills around the oven door,
rectangular flanges, Iand gasket.
Then close the door.
While you are becoming acquainted with your selfcleaning oven, we recommend 2 hours for the average cleaning Mction, but in some cases a longer @
cleaning time, up to 3 hours may be necessary. In
order to judge the degree of soil, look at the oven
floor and walls. Light spatter and thinner spills
would generally need o~ly 2 hours cleaning. Heavy
greasy spills and spatter on the oven interior would
need up to3 hours.
STEP 3: Push and hold Clean
Button while sliding the Latch to
CLEAN.
T\*

~: Turn Oven Set Knob
and Oven Temp Knob clockwise to
CLEAN. The control will snap into
final position when the CLEAN position is reached.
~uestions
and Answers
Q. What should I do if excessive
smoking occurs during cleaning?
A. This is caused by excessive
grease and you should switch the
Oven Set Knob to OFF. Open windows and doors to rid room of
smoke. Allow the oven to cool for
at ;sast one hour before opening
the door. Wipe up the excess
grease and reset the clean cycle.
STEP 4: Set The Automatic
Oven Timer:
Push in knob on Stop (Clean)
Dial and turn to the time you
wish oven to stop cleaning. Add
the number of hours needed for
cleaning to the present time of
day.
Cleaning Indicator Lights come
on when all steps are set
properly.
If you wish to clean at a later
time set Start Dial to that time.
Q. Why did the Lock Light come
on when I first set the oven for
CLEAN?
A. Lock Light glowing indicates
that oven is too hot. Turn Oven Set
Knob to OFF and open Oven Doo$
to cool the internal cavity. After a
short period of time, reset controls
for cleaning.
Q. My oven shelves have become
gray after several cleanings. Is this
normal?
A. Yes. After many cleanings, the
shelves may lose some luster and
discolor to a deep gray color.
NOTE: A slight odor may be detected especially during the first
few cleanings. Do not be alarmed.
This is normal during the selfcleaning cycle.
When cleaning temperature is
reached, Lock Light comes G+ and
door cannot be unlatched until
Lock Light goes off.
STEP 5: When Lock Light goes
off, push and hold the Clean Lock
Button while sliding Latch to
OPEN. Turn Oven Set Knob to
OFF.
STEP 6: Turn Oven Set Knob to
OFF.

Q. Why do I have ash left in my
oven after cleaning?
A. Some types of soil will leave a
deposit which is ash. It can be removed with a damp sponge or cloth.
Q. Why is there still some black
soil left after cleaning?
A. You did not time the oven to
clean long enough. This deposit
will be removed in later cleanings.
Q. If my oven clock is not worki @
can I still self-clean my oven?
A. No. Your Automatic Oven Timer
uses the range clock to help start e
and stop your self-cleaning cycle.

1. Aluminum pans conduct heat quickly. For most conventional baking light shiny finishesgwe best results because they prevent overbrowmng
in the time it takes for heat tocookthe center areas. Dull (satin-finish) bottom surfaces of pans are recommended for cake pans and pie plates to
be sure those areas brown completely.
2. Dark or non-shiny finishes, also glass and pyroceram, absorb heat which may result in dry,crisp crusts. Reduce oven heat 29 if Iightercrusts
are desired. Preheat cast iron for baking some foods for rapid browning when food is added.
3. Preheating the oven is not always necessary, especially for foods which cook longer than 30 or40 minutes. For foods with short cooking times,
preheating gives best appearance and crispness.
4. Clpen the oven door to check food as little as possible to prevent uneven heating and to save energy.

ConventionalBroilingChati
Always use broiler pan and rack that comes with your oven. It is designed to minimize smoking and spattering by trapping juices in the shielded
lower part of the pan.
2. C)ven door should be ajar for most foods; there is a special position on door which holds door open correctly.
3. For steaks and chops, slash fat evenly around outside edges of meat. Toslash, cut crosswise through outer fat surface just to the edge of the
meat. Use tongs to turn meat over to prevent piercing meat and loosing juices.
4. If desired, marinate meats or chicken before broiling. Or, brush with barbecue sauce last 5 to 10 minutes only.
5. When arranging food on pan, do not let fatty edges hang over sides, which could soil oven with f?t dripping.
6. Broiler does not need to be preheated. However, for very thin foods or to increase browning, preheat if desired.
7. Frozen Steaks can be conventionally broiled by positioning the oven shelf at next lowest shelf position and increasing cooking time given in
this chart IVZtimes per side.

‘ConventionalRoastingChati

t. Position oven shelf at B for small-size roasts (3 to 5-lbs.) and at A for larger roasts.
2. Place meat or poultry fat side up on broiler pan or other shallow pan with trivet. Do not cover, Do not stuff poultry until just before roasting.
Use meat thermometer if your oven has one, for most accurate doneness. Thermometer signals when food has reached set temperature.
3. Remove fat and drippings as necessary. Baste as desired.
4. Standing time recommended for roasts is 10to 20 min. to allow roast to firm up and make it easier to carve. It will rise about 5°to 10°in internal
temperature; to compensate for temperature rise, if desired, remove roast from oven at 5° to 10” less than temperature on chart.
5. Frozen roasts can be conventionally roasted by adding 10to 25 min. per pound more time than given in chart for refrigerated. (10min. per lb. for
roasts under 5-lbs.). Defrost poultry before roasting.
