c. If materials inside the oven ignite, keep the oven door closed, turn the oven
off, disconnect the power cord, or shut off the power at the fuse or circuit
breaker panel.
d. Do not use the oven compartment for storage purposes. Do not leave
paper products, cooking utensils, or food in the oven when not in use.
Do not operate while empty.
Do not cook without the glass tray in place on the oven floor. Food will not
cook properly without the tray.
Do not defrost frozen beverages in narrow-necked bottles. The containers
can break.
Dishes and containers can become hot. Handle with care.
Carefully remove container coverings, directing steam away from hands and
face.
Remove lids from food before heating. After heating baby food, stir well and
test temperature by tasting before serving.
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risk of becoming
entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. Longer cord sets or extension
cords are available and may be used with caution.
Do not operate any other heating or cooking appliance beneath this
appliance.
Do not mount unit over or near any portion of a heating or cooking appliance.

Safety
IMPORTANT GROUNDING
INSTRUCTIONS
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 accidentally. If you use an extension
cord, the interior light may flicker and the blower may vary
when the microwave oven is on. Cooking times may be
longer, too.
4. Use of extremely long extension cords, or cords in poor
condition, may adversely affect cooking performance due to
voltage drop.
This appliance must be connected to a grounded, metallic,
permanent wiring system, or an equipment grounding
conductor should be run with the circuit conductors and
connected to the equipment grounding terminal or lead on the
appliance. Plug the three-prong power cord into a properly
grounded outlet of standard 115-120 voltage, 60 Hz. Your oven
should be the only appliance on this 15A or 20A circuit.
Note: Do not set dishes or food on the door when it is in the
open position, as the oven may become unstable and tip
over.
WARNING
Do not cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the
power cord under any circumstances.
Note: Upon the oven’s first use, there may be a slight odor
due to heater “break in”. This is normal, and will not reoccur.
WARNING
Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of
electric shock. Consult a qualified electrician or servicer if
you do not understand the grounding instructions or if you
are not sure if the appliance is properly grounded.
Liquids, such as water, coffee, or tea are able to be overheated
beyond the boiling point without appearing to be boiling. Visible
bubbling or boiling when the container is removed from the
microwave oven is not always present. THIS COULD RESULT
IN VERY HOT LIQUIDS SUDDENLY BOILING OVER WHEN
THE CONTAINER IS DISTURBED OR A SPOON OR OTHER
UTENSIL IS INSERTED INTO THE LIQUID.
Use of Extension Cords
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risk of
becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. Longer
cord sets or extension cords are available and may be used if
care is exercised in their use. 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
and it must be plugged into a 3-slot outlet.
To reduce the risk of injury to persons:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Do not overheat the liquid.
Stir the liquid both before and halfway through heating it.
Do not use straight-sided containers with narrow necks.
After heating, allow the container to stand in the microwave
oven for a short time before removing the container.
5. Use extreme care when inserting a spoon or other utensil
into the container.

Cooking Instructions
Testing Utensils
Cooking Techniques
If you are not sure whether a dish is microwave-safe or not, you can perform this
test:
Stirring
1
Stir foods such as casseroles and vegetables while cooking to distribute heat
evenly. Food at the outside of the dish absorbs more energy and heats more
quickly, so stir from the outside to the center. The oven will turn off when you
open the door to stir your food.
Fill a glass measuring cup with water and put it inside your oven,
next to the dish you want to test.
Arrangement
Arrange unevenly shaped foods, such as chicken pieces or chops, with the
thicker, meatier parts toward the outside of the turntable where they receive
more microwave energy. To prevent overcooking, place thin or delicate parts
toward the center of the turntable.
Shielding
Shield food with narrow strips of aluminum foil to prevent overcooking. Areas
that need shielding include poultry wing-tips, the ends of poultry legs, and
corners of square baking dishes. Use only small amounts of aluminum foil.
Larger amounts can damage your oven.
2
Press the Start/ +1 Min. button once to heat them for one minute
at High power.
The water should be warm and the dish you are testing should be cool. If the
dish is warm, then it is absorbing microwave energy and is not acceptable for
use in the microwave.
Turning
Turn foods over midway through cooking to expose all parts to microwave
energy. This is especially important with large items such as roasts.
Standing
Foods cooked in the microwave build up internal heat and continue to cook for a
few minutes after the oven stops. Let foods stand to complete cooking,
especially foods such as roasts and whole vegetables. Roasts need this time to
complete cooking in the center without overcooking the outer areas. All liquids,
such as soup or hot chocolate, should be shaken or stirred when cooking is
complete. Let liquids stand a moment before serving. When heating baby food,
stir well and test the temperature before serving.
Adding Moisture
Microwave energy is attracted to water molecules. Food that is uneven in
moisture content should be covered or allowed to stand so that the heat
disperses evenly. Add a small amount of water to dry food to help it cook.

General Tips
Guide for Cooking Meat in Your Microwave
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Dense foods, such as potatoes, take longer to heat than lighter
foods. Foods with a delicate texture should be heated at a low power
level to avoid becoming tough.
Altitude and the type of cookware you are using can affect cooking
time. When using a new recipe, use the minimum cooking time and
check the food occasionally to prevent overcooking.
Foods with a non-porous skin or shell, such as potatoes, eggs, or hot
dogs, should be pierced to prevent bursting.
Frying with heating oil or fat is not recommended. Fat and oil can
suddenly boil over and cause severe burns.
Some ingredients heat faster than others. For example, the jelly
inside a jelly doughnut will be hotter than the dough. Keep this in
mind to avoid burns.
Home canning in the microwave oven is not recommended because
all harmful bacteria may not be destroyed by the microwave heating
process.
Although microwaves do not heat the cookware, the heat is often
transferred to the cookware. Always use pot holders when removing
food from the microwave and instruct children to do the same.

Place meat on a microwave-safe roasting rack in a microwave-safe
dish.
Start meat fat-side down. Use narrow strips of aluminum foil to shield
any bone tips or thin meat areas.
Check the temperature in several places before letting the meat
stand the recommended time.
The following temperatures are removal temperatures. The
temperature of the food will rise during the standing time.
Many foods, such as convenience foods, can be successfully
prepared in the 3-N-1 TM Toaster Microwave Oven. Please follow the
manufacturer's package directions carefully for best results.
Please check your food before the time is up. You may need to
adjust the time for best results or personal preference.
During baking, the food may rise becoming too close to the heaters,
which may cause the food to overcook or burn.
Baking larger dense food items, such as cakes or brownies, is not
recommended in this oven.
For best results when baking, try to place the food toward the center
of the crumb tray.
Some package directions call for temperatures above 400 °F.
Set the temperature to 400 °F and add an additional 2 - 6 minutes.
When heating frozen dinners or frozen entrees, Speed Cook #3 or
only microwaving is recommended.

Guide for Cooking Eggs in Your Microwave
Auto Defrosting Guide
•
•
•
•
Never cook eggs in the shell, and never warm hard-boiled eggs in
the shell; they can explode.
Always pierce whole eggs to keep them from bursting.
Cook eggs just until set; they become tough if overcooked.
Food
Guide for Cooking Vegetables in Your
Microwave
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Follow the instructions below when defrosting different types of food.
Vegetables should be washed just before cooking. Often, no extra
water is needed. If dense vegetables such as potatoes, carrots and
green beans are being cooked, add about ¼ cup water.
Small vegetables (sliced carrots, peas, lima beans, etc.) will cook
faster than larger ones.
Whole vegetables, such as potatoes, acorn squash or corn on the
cob, should be arranged in a circle on the turntable before cooking.
They will cook more evenly if turned over at half the cooking time.
Always place vegetables like asparagus and broccoli with the stem
ends pointing towards the edge of the dish with the heads toward the
center.
When cooking cut vegetables, always cover the dish with a lid or
vented microwavable plastic wrap.
Whole, unpeeled vegetables such as potatoes, squash, eggplant,
etc., should have their skin pricked in several spots before cooking to
prevent them from bursting.
For more even cooking, rearrange whole vegetables halfway through
the cooking time.
Generally, the denser the food, the longer the standing time.
(Standing time refers to the time necessary for dense, large foods
and vegetables to finish cooking after they come out of the oven.) A
baked potato can stand on the counter for five minutes before
cooking is completed, while a dish of peas can be served
immediately.
Amount
Procedure
Roast
Beef,
Pork
2.5-5.0 lbs. Start with the food placed fat side down. After
each stage, turn the food over and shield any
warm portions with narrow strips of aluminum
foil.
Steaks,
Chops,
Fish
0.5-3.0 lbs. After each stage, rearrange the food. If there
are any warm or thawed portions of food,
shield them with narrow flat pieces of
aluminum foil. Remove any pieces of food
that are nearly defrosted. Let stand, covered,
for 5-10 minutes.
Ground
Meat
0.5-3.0 lbs. After each stage, remove any pieces of food
that are nearly defrosted. Let stand, covered
with foil, for 5-10 minutes.
Whole
Chicken
2.5-6.0 lbs. Remove giblets before freezing poultry. Start
defrosting with the breast side down. After
the first stage, turn the chicken over and
shield any warm portions with narrow strips of
aluminum foil. After the second stage, again
shield any warm portions with narrow strips of
aluminum foil. Let stand, covered, for 30-60
minutes in the refrigerator.
Chicken
Pieces
0.5-2.0 lbs. After each stage, rearrange or remove any
pieces of food that are nearly defrosted. Let
stand for 10-20 minutes.
Notes
Check foods when the oven signals. After the final stage, small sections may still
be icy; let them stand to continue thawing.
Shielding roasts and steaks with small pieces of foil prevents the edges from
cooking before the center of the food has defrosted. Use narrow, flat, smooth
strips of aluminum foil to cover the edges and thinner sections of the food.

Appendix
Troubleshooting Guide
You see sparks or arcing.
•
Before you call a repair person for your oven, check this list of possible problems
and solutions.
The turntable makes noises or sticks.
Neither the oven’s display nor the oven operate.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Properly insert the plug into a grounded outlet.
If the outlet is controlled by a wall switch, make sure the wall switch
is turned on.
Remove the plug from the outlet, wait ten seconds, then plug it in
again.
Reset the circuit breaker or replace any blown fuse.
Plug another appliance into the outlet; if the other appliance doesn’t
work, have a qualified electrician repair the outlet.
Plug the oven into a different outlet.
•
•
•
Make sure the door is closed securely.
Check to see if packing or other material or other material is stuck to
the door seal.
Check for door damage.
Press Cancel twice and re-enter all cooking instructions.
The power goes off before the set time has elapsed.
•
•
If there has not been a power outage, remove the plug from the
outlet, wait ten seconds, then plug it in again.
Reset the circuit breaker or replace any blown fuse.
The food is cooking too slowly.
•
Clean the turntable, roller ring and oven floor.
Make sure the turntable and roller ring are positioned correctly.
Using your microwave causes TV or radio interference.
The oven’s display works, but the power won’t come on.
•
•
Remove any metallic utensils, cookware, or metal ties. If using foil,
use only narrow strips and allow at least one inch between the foil
and interior oven walls.
Make sure the oven is on its own 15 or 20 amp circuit line. Operating
another appliance on the same circuit can cause a voltage drop. If
necessary, move the oven to its own circuit.
30
This is similar to the interference caused by other small appliances,
such as hair dryers. Move your microwave further away from other
appliances, like your TV or radio.

Model Number
Keep the inside of the oven clean. Food particles and spilled liquids
can stick to the oven walls, causing the oven to work less efficiently.
Wipe up spills immediately. Use a damp cloth and mild soap. Do not
use harsh detergents or abrasives.
To help loosen baked on food particles or liquids, heat two cups of
water (add the juice of one lemon if you desire to keep the oven
fresh) in a four-cup measuring glass at High power for five minutes
or until boiling. Let stand in the oven for one or two minutes.
Remove the glass tray from the oven when cleaning the oven or tray.
To prevent the tray from breaking, handle it carefully and do not put it
in water immediately after cooking. Wash the tray carefully in warm
sudsy water or in the dishwasher.
Clean the outside surface of the oven with soap and a damp cloth.
Dry with a soft cloth. To prevent damage to the operating parts of the
oven, don’t let water seep into the openings.
Wash the door window with very mild soap and water. Be sure to use
a soft cloth to avoid scratching.
If steam accumulates inside or outside the oven door, wipe with a
soft cloth. Steam can accumulate when operating the oven in high
humidity and in no way indicates microwave leakage.
Never operate the oven without food in it; this can damage the
magnetron tube or glass tray. You may wish to leave a cup of water
in the oven when it is not in use to prevent damage if the oven is
accidentally turned on.
