Safety Precautions
You have just purchased a SAMSUNG microwave oven. Your Owner’s
Instructions contain much valuable information on cooking with your
microwave oven:
• Safety precautions
• Suitable accessories and cookware
• Useful cooking tips
Important Safety Instructions.
Read Carefully and keep for future reference.
Before cooking food or liquids in your microwave oven, please check
that the following safety precautions are taken.
1. DO NOT use any metallic cookware in the microwave oven:
• Metallic containers
• Dinnerware with gold or silver trimmings
• Skewers, forks, etc.
Reason: Electric arcing or sparking may occur and may damage the oven.
2. DO NOT heat:
• Airtight or vacuum-sealed bottles, jars, containers
Ex) Baby food jars
• Airtight food.
Ex) Eggs, nuts in shells, tomatoes
Reason: The increase in pressure may cause them to explode.
Tip:
Remove lids and pierce skins, bags, etc.
3. DO NOT operate the microwave oven when it is empty.
Reason: The oven walls may be damaged.
Tip:
Leave a glass of water inside the oven at all times.
The water will absorb the microwaves if you accidentally set the
oven going when it is empty.
4. DO NOT cover the rear ventilation slots with cloths or paper.
Reason: The cloths or paper may catch fire as hot air is evacuated from the
oven.
5. ALWAYS use oven gloves when removing a dish from the oven.
Reason: Some dishes absorb microwaves and heat is always transferred
from the food to the dish.The dishes are therefore hot.
6. DO NOT touch heating elements or interior oven walls.
Reason: These walls may be hot enough to burn even after cooking has
finished, even though they do not appear to be so. Do not allow
inflammable materials to come into contact with any interior area of
the oven. Let the oven cool down first.
7. To reduce the risk of fire in the oven cavity:
• Do not store flammable materials in the oven
• Remove wire twist ties from paper or plastic bags
• Do not use your microwave oven to dry newspapers
• If smoke is observed, keep the oven door closed and switch off or
disconnect the oven from the power supply
8. Take particular care when heating liquids and baby foods.
• ALWAYS allow a standing time of at least 20 seconds after the oven has
been switched off so that the temperature can equalize.
• Stir during heating, if necessary, and ALWAYS stir after heating.
• Take care when handling the container after heating. You may burn
yourself, if the container is too hot.
At the front of the booklet you will find illustrations of the oven, and
more importantly the control panel, so that you can find the buttons
more easily.
The step-by-step procedures use three different symbols.

PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID POSSIBLE EXPOSURE TO
EXCESSIVE MICROWAVE ENERGY
Failure to observe the following safety precautions may result in harmful
exposure to microwave energy.
(a) Under no circumstances should any attempt be made to operate the oven with
the door open or to tamper with the safety interlocks (door latches) or to insert
anything into the safety interlock holes.
(b) Do not place any object between the oven door and front face or allow food or
cleaner residues to accumulate on sealing surfaces. Ensure that the door and
door sealing surfaces are kept clean by wiping after use first with a damp cloth
and then with a soft dry cloth.
(c) Do not operate the oven if it is damaged until it has been repaired by a
qualified microwave service technician trained by the manufacturer. It is
particularly important that the oven door closes properly and that there is no
damage to the:
(1) Door, door seals and sealing surfaces
(2) Door hinges (broken or loose)
(3) Power cable
(d) The oven should not be adjusted or repaired by anyone other than a properly
qualified microwave service technician trained by the manufacturer.

Safety Precautions (continued)
Installing Your Microwave Oven
Place the oven on a flat, level surface that is strong enough to safely
bear the weight of the oven.

A risk of delayed eruptive boiling exists.
To prevent delayed boiling and possible scalding, you should put a plastic
spoon or glass stick into the beverages and stir before, during and after
heating.
Reason: During the heating of liquids the boiling point can be delayed; this
means that eruptive boiling can start after the container is removed
from the oven. You may scald yourself.
• In the event of scalding, follow these FIRST AID instructions:
* Immerse the scalded area in cold water for at least 10 minutes.
* Cover with a clean, dry dressing.
* Do not apply any creams, oils or lotions.
• NEVER fill the container to the top and choose a container that is wider at
the top than at the bottom to prevent the liquid from boiling over. Bottles
with narrow necks may also explode if overheated.
• ALWAYS check the temperature of baby food or milk before giving it to
the baby.
• NEVER heat a baby’s bottle with the teat on, as the bottle may explode if
overheated.
Be careful not to damage the power cable.
• Do not immerse the power cable or plug in water and keep the power
cable away from heated surfaces.
• Do not operate this appliance if it has a damaged power cable or plug.
Stand at arm’s length from the oven when opening the door.
Reason: The hot air or steam released may cause scalding.
Keep the inside of the oven clean.
Reason: Food particles or spattered oils stuck to oven walls or floor can
cause paint damage and reduce the efficiency of the oven.
You may notice a “Clicking” sound during operation(especially when the oven
is defrosting).
Reason: This sound is normal when the electrical power output is changing.
When the microwave oven is operating without any load, the power will be cut
off automati-cally for safety. You can operate normally after letting it stand for
over 30 minutes.

1. When you install your oven, Make sure there is adequate
ventilation for your oven by leaving at least 10 cm (4
inches) of space behind, and on the sides of the oven, at
least 20 cm (8 inches) of space above the oven.
2. Remove all packing materials inside the oven.
Install the roller ring and turntable.
Check that the turntable rotates freely.
3. This microwave oven has to be positioned so that plug is
accessible.
☛
Never block the air vents as the oven may overheat and
automatically switch itself off. It will remain inoperable until it has
cooled sufficiently.
☛
For your personal safety, plug the cable into a 3-pin, 230 Volt,
50Hz, AC earthed socket. If the power cable of this appliance is
damaged, it must be replaced by a special cable (I-SHENG
SP022, KDK KKP4819D, EUROELECTRIC 3410, SAMIL SP106B, MOONSUNG EP-48E, HIGH PROJECT H.P 3). Contact
your local dealer to have it replaced. The power cable of ISRAEL
is PENCON(ZD16A), S/AFRICA APEX LEADS SA16 and
NIGERIA, GHANA, KENYA and U.A.E is PENCON(UD13A1).
☛
Do not install the microwave oven in hot or damp surroundings
like next to a traditional oven or radiator. The power supply
specifications of the oven must be respected and any extension
cable used must be of the same standard as the power cable
supplied with the oven. Wipe the interior and the door seal with a
damp cloth before using your microwave oven for the first time.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
During cooking, you should look into the oven from time to time when food is
being heated or cooked in disposable containers of plastic, paper or other
combustible materials.
IMPORTANT
Young children should NEVER be allowed to use or play with the microwave
oven. Nor should they be left unattended near the microwave oven when it is in
use. Items of interest to children should not be stored or hidden just above the
oven.
