How the Microwave Function Works
Microwaves are a form of energy similar to radio,
television waves, and ordinary daylight. Normally,
microwaves spread outwards as they travel through the
This oven, however, has a magnetron that is designed
to make use of the energy in microwaves. Electricity,
supplied to the magnetron tube, is used to create
microwave energy.
These microwaves enter the cooking area through
openings inside the oven. A tray is located inside the
oven. Microwaves cannot pass through metal walls
of the oven, but they can penetrate such materials as
glass, porcelain and paper, the materials out of which
microwave-safe cooking dishes are constructed.
Microwaves do not heat cookware, though cooking
vessels will eventually get hot from the heat generated
by the food.
A very safe appliance
Your Microwave oven, is one of the safest
of all home appliances. When the door
is opened, the oven automatically stops
producing microwaves. Microwave energy
is converted completely to heat when it
enters food, leaving no “left over” energy
to harm you when you eat your food.

'Food' appears on the display?
When 'Food' appears on the display, the microwave will not operate
as it assumes that no food has been placed inside. 'Food' in the
display will also appear and the remaining time will be cancelled, if
the door is opened and closed during cooking and the START
button is not pressed within 5 minutes of doing so.

fan continues to run after the cooking or
heating time is over.
After cooking is complete, the fan may operate to cool the oven.
The display will show 'Cool'. If you open the door or press once
STOP before the cooking time is complete, the remaining
cooking time will show on the display. This is not a malfunction.
When operating the microwave oven, If you use a product such as radio, TV, wireless LAN, Bluetooth, medical equipment,

these products. This interference does not indicate a problem of the microwave or the product and is not a malfunction.
Therefore, it is safe to use. However, medical equipment may receive interference as well, so use caution when using
medical equipment near the product.
