Microwave Safety
Important Safety Instructions
Please read all instructions before using this appliance.
General Microwave Use
•
1. DO NOT operate the oven while empty. The
microwave energy will reflect continuously
throughout the oven, causing overheating if
food or water is not present to absorb energy.
This could damage the oven and result in a risk
of fire.
Children and pets should not be left alone or
unattended in the area where the appliance is in
use. They should never be allowed to sit or stand
on any part of the appliance.
•
Never use the oven to warm or heat a room.
Such use can damage the oven parts.
•
For personal safety, wear proper apparel. Loose
fitting or hanging garments should never be
worn while using this appliance. Tie long hair so
that it doesn't hang loose.
•
Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance
unless specifically recommended in this manual.
All other servicing should be referred to an
authorized servicer.
•
Do not store flammable materials in or near the
oven.
•
Do not use water on a grease fire. Smother fire
or flame or use a dry chemical or foam-type
extinguisher.
•
Use only dry potholders. Moist or damp potholders on hot surfaces may result in burns from
steam. Do not let a potholder touch hot heating
elements. Do not use a towel or other bulky
cloth.
•
In the event that personal clothing or hair
catches fire, DROP AND ROLL IMMEDIATELY
to extinguish flames.
•
As a precaution, it is highly recommended that
a fire extinguisher be readily available and highly
visible next to any cooking appliance.
2. DO NOT dry clothes, newspapers or other
materials in oven, or use newspapers or paper
bags for cooking. Fire could result.
3. DO NOT use recycled paper products unless the
paper product is labeled as safe for microwave
oven use. Recycled paper products may contain
impurities which may cause sparks and result in
fires when used.
4. DO NOT hit or strike control panel. Damage to
controls may occur. Fire could result.
5. POT HOLDERS should always be used when
removing items from the oven. Heat is transferred from the HOT food to the cooking container and from the cooking container to the
Glass Tray. The Glass Tray can be very HOT after
removing cooking container from oven.
6. DO NOT store flammable materials next to, on
top of, or in the oven. These could be fire
hazards.
General Appliance Safety
•
Use this unit only in the manner intended by the
manufacturer. If you have any questions, contact
the manufacturer.

Microwave Operation
Cooking in the Microwave Oven
IMPORTANT: Do not overcook food; fire could result. Proper cooking depends on selecting the correct power
level and cooking time for the amount of food in the oven. Smaller portions of food that are cooked too long may
catch fire. Always have food in the microwave oven when it is on to absorb the microwave energy. When using
the oven at power levels below 100%, you can hear the magnetron cycling on and off. Condensation is a normal
part of microwave cooking. Covered foods will not cause as much condensation as uncovered ones. Do not block
oven vents. This oven is rated for 1100 watts by using the IEC Test Procedure. When cooking foods, check for
doneness 1-2 minutes before the minimum time and add time accordingly.

Meat
Poultry
1. No special techniques are required: Meat should
be prepared as with conventional cooking. Season if desired. Always thoroughly defrost meat
before cooking.
2. Place the meat on a microwave roasting rack or
microwave-safe plate and place on the turntable.
3. Cook according to the Meat Cooking
Recommendations (below). Use the longer time
for large meats and the shorter time for smaller
meats. For thicker chops, use the longer time.
4. Turn the meat once halfway through the cooking time.
5. After removing from microwave oven, cover
loosely with foil. Allow to stand for 5–10 minutes. The standing time is very important as it
completes the cooking process.
6. Make sure meat, especially pork, is thoroughly
cooked and juices run clear.
1. No special techniques are required: Poultry
should be prepared as with conventional cooking. Season if desired.
2. Poultry should be thoroughly defrosted. Remove
giblets and any metal clamps.
3. Prick the skin and brush lightly with vegetable
oil (unless the poultry is self-basting).
4. All poultry should be placed on a microwave
roasting rack or a microwave-safe plate and
placed on the turntable.
5. Cook according to the instructions in the Poultry Cooking Recommendations below. Turn
pieces over halfway through the cooking time.
Because of its shape, poultry has a tendency to
cook unevenly, especially in very bony parts.
Periodic turning helps to cook these areas evenly.
6. Let stand for 5–10 minutes wrapped in foil after
cooking before carving. The standing time is very
important, as it completes the cooking process.
7. Make sure poultry is thoroughly cooked before
eating. Whole poultry is completely cooked
when the juices run clear. Pierce with a sharp
knife through the thickest part to ensure that the
juices are clear and the flesh is firm.

Questions and Answers
QUESTION
ANSWER
Why is the oven light not on during
cooking?
There may be several reasons why the oven light is not on.
Have you:
• Set a cooking time?
• Touched START?
• Checked the light bulb?
Why does steam come out of the air
exhaust vent?
Steam is normally produced during cooking. The microwave
oven has been designed to vent this steam.
Will the microwave oven be damaged if it
operates when empty?
Yes. Never operate the oven when empty or without the glass
turntable.
Does microwave energy pass through the
viewing screen in the door?
No. The metal screen bounces the energy back to the oven
cavity. The holes (or ports) allow only light to pass through.
They do not let microwave energy pass through.
Why does a tone sound when
the control panel is touched?
The tone tells you that the setting has been entered.
Can my microwave oven be damaged if
food is cooked for too long?
Like any other cooking appliance, it is possible to overcook
food to the point that the food creates smoke and even
possibly fire and damage to the inside of the oven. It is always
best to be near the oven while you are cooking.
When the oven is plugged into wall outlet
for the first time, it did not work properly.
What is wrong?
The microcomputer controlling your oven may temporarily
become scrambled when you plug it in for the first time or
when power resumes after an interruption.
Simply shut the power off at the house electrical breaker for
a moment then turn it back on to reset the microcomputer.
Why do I see light reflection around the
outer case?
This is the oven light, located between the oven cavity and
the outer wall of the oven.
What are the various sounds I hear when
the microwave oven is operating?
The clicking sound is caused by a mechanical switch turning
the microwave oven’s magnetron on and off. The change in
blower speed is due to the change in line voltage caused by
the magnetron being turned on and off.

Questions and Answers
QUESTION
ANSWER
What is wrong when baked foods have a
hard, dry, brown spot?
A hard, dry, brown spot indicates overcooking. Shorten the
cooking or reheating time.
Why do eggs sometimes pop?
When baking, frying, or poaching eggs, the yolk may pop due
to steam build-up inside the yolk membrane. To prevent this,
simply pierce the yolk with a wooden toothpick before cooking. CAUTION: Never microwave eggs in the shell.
Why are scrambled eggs sometimes a
little dry after cooking?
Eggs will dry out when they are overcooked.
The cooking time may need to be varied for one of these reasons:
• Eggs vary in size.
• Eggs are at room temperature one time and at refrigerator
temperature another time.
• Eggs continue cooking during standing time.
Is it possible to pop popcorn in a
microwave oven?
Yes, if using one of the two methods described below:
(1) microwave-popping devices designed specifically for
microwave cooking.
(2) prepackaged commercial microwave popcorn that is made
for specific times and power output needed.
CAUTION:
• Follow exact directions given by each manufacturer for
its popcorn popping product and do not leave the oven
unattended while the corn is being popped. If corn fails
to pop after the suggested time, discontinue cooking.
• Never use a brown paper bag for popping corn or
attempt to pop leftover kernels.
• Overcooking could result in an oven fire.
Why do baked apples sometimes burst?
The peel has not been removed from the top half of each
apple to allow for expansion of the interior of the apple
during cooking. As in conventional cooking methods, the
interior of the apple expands during the cooking process.
Why do baked potatoes sometimes burn?
If the cooking time is too long, fire could result. At the end of
the recommended cooking time, potatoes should be slightly
firm. CAUTION: Do not overcook.
Why is a standing time recommended
after microwave cooking time is over?
Standing time allows foods to continue cooking evenly for a
few minutes after the actual microwave oven cooking cycle.
The amount of standing time depends upon food density.
Why is additional time required for
cooking refrigerated food?
As in conventional cooking, the initial temperature of food
affects total cooking time. You need more time to cook food
taken out of a refrigerator than for food at room temperature.
