EN-3
THIS COULD RESULT IN VERY HOT LIQUID SUDDENLY BOILING OVER WHEN
THE CONTAINER IS DISTURBED OR A UTENSIL IS INSERTED INTO THE LIQUID.
To reduce the risk of injury to persons:
1) Do not overheat the liquid.
2) Stir the liquid both before and halfway through heating it.

5) Use extreme care when inserting a spoon or other utensil into the container.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance must be grounded. In the event of an electrical short circuit, grounding
reduces the risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric current. This
appliance is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. The plug
must be plugged into an outlet that is properly installed and grounded.
WARNING - Improper use of the grounding can result in a risk of electric shock.
Consult a qualified electrician or serviceman if the grounding instructions are not
completely understood, or if doubt exists as to whether the appliance is properly grounded.
If it is necessary to use an extension cord, use only a 3-wire extension cord that has a
3-blade grounded plug, and 3-slot receptacle that will accept the plug on the appliance.
The marked rating of the extension cord shall be equal to or greater than the electrical
rating of the appliance.
DANGER - Electric Shock Hazard
Touching some of the internal components can cause serious personal injury or death.
Do not disassemble this appliance.
WARNING - Electric Shock Hazard
Improper use of the grounding can result in electric shock. Do not plug into an outlet until
appliance is properly installed and grounded.
1. A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risks resulting from becoming
entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
2. Longer cord sets or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised
in their use.
3. If a long cord or extension cord is used:
1) The marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension cord should be at least as
great as the electrical rating of the appliance.
2) The extension cord must be a grounding-type 3-wire cord.
3) The longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the counter top or
tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over unintentionally.
EN-4
RADIO INTERFERENCE
1. Operation of the microwave oven may cause interference to your radio, TV or similar
equipment.

stir liquid before placing the container in the oven and again halfway through cooking
time. Let stand in the oven for a short time and stir again before removing the container.
14. Use caution when cooking food in the microwave oven to avoid burning due to
excessive heat .
15. When the appliance is operated in the combination mode, children should only use the
oven under adult supervision due to the temperatures generated.
