To avoid risk of electrical shock or
death, this oven must be grounded.
To avoid risk of electrical shock
or death, do not alter the plug.
Oven MUST be earthed.
Earthing reduces risk of electric
shock by providing an escape wire
for the electric current, if an electrical
short occurs. This oven is equipped
with a cord having a earth wire with
a earthing plug. The plug must be
plugged into an outlet that is properly
installed and earthed.
Consult a qualified electrician or
servicer if earthing instructions are
not completely understood, or if
doubt exists as to whether the oven is
properly earthed.
Do not use an extension cord.
If the product power cord is too
short, have a qualified electrician
install a three-slot receptacle.
This oven should be plugged
into a separate circuit with the
electrical rating as provided in
product specifications (available on
Amana’s wavelink website). When
a microwave oven is on a circuit
with other equipment, an increase in
cooking times may be required and
fuses can be blown.
