PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID POSSIBLE
EXPOSURE TO EXCESSIVE
MICROWAVE ENERGY
The oven cannot be operated with the door open due to the safety interlocks built in the door mechanism
which switch off cooking functions when the door is opened. Operating the oven with the door open could
result in harmful exposure to microwave energy. It is important not to tamper with the door mechanism.
Do not place any object between the oven front face and the door or allow soil or cleaner residue
to accumulate on sealing surfaces.
Do not operate the oven if it is damaged. It is particularly important that the oven door closes
properly and that there is no damage to the (1) door (bent), (2) hinges and latches (broken or loosened), (3)
door seals and sealing surfaces.
The oven should not be adjusted or repaired by anyone except qualified service personnel.
WARNING
When heating liquids, e.g. soups, sauces and beverages in your microwave oven, delayed eruptive boiling can
occur without evidence of bubbling. This could result in a sudden boil over of the hot liquid. To prevent this
possibility the following steps should be taken:
1. Avoid using straight-sided containers with narrow necks.
2. Do not overheat.
3. Stir the liquid before placing the container in the oven and again halfway through the
heating time.
4. After heating, allow to stand in the oven for a short time. Stir or shake the contents (especially feeding
bottles and baby foods) and carefully check the temperature before use.
Installation
1. Remove all packing materials and accessories.
2. Place the oven on a level surface a minimum of 85cm above the floor with at least 30cm above and 10cm rear
space to allow adequate ventilation. The side of the oven should be kept clear so there is air flow for ventilation.
The front of the oven should be at least 8cm from the edge of the surface to prevent tipping.
An exhaust outlet is located on top or side of the oven. Blocking the outlet can damage the oven.
3. Plug your oven into a standard voltage household outlet. Ensure that the electrical circuit is at least 10 amps
(13 amps for models M)0
) and that the oven is the only appliance on the circuit.

Microwave
1. Most glass, glass ceramic, and heat resistant
glassware utensils are excellent. Those with
metal trim should not be used in a microwave
oven.
2. Paper napkins, towels, plates, cups, cartons,
and cardboard can be used in the microwave
oven. Do not use recycled paper products
since they may contain impurities which may
cause sparks and/or fires when used in
cooking.
(Consult your cookbook for correct use of
these products.)
3. Plastic dishes, cups, freezer bags, and plastic
wraps may be used in the microwave oven.
Follow the manufacturer’s instructions or the
information given in the cookbook when using
plastics in the microwave oven.
4. Metal utensils and utensils with metallic trim
should not be used in the microwave oven.
For more information on the proper use of
metal in your oven, please read the
introduction section in the cookbook. If the
use of aluminum foil, skewers, or utensils
containing metal in the oven is specified in the
recipe, allow at least 2.5cm clearance
between the metal object and the interior
oven wall. If arcing (sparks) occurs, remove
immediately.
Grill
1. Heat resistant glassware, ceramic and metal
cookware can be used.
2. Paper napkins, towels, and plastics should
not be used.
Notes:
• Care should be taken when removing utensils
or the glass turntable, as they may become
hot during cooking.
• Only use a thermometer that is designed or
recommended for use in the microwave oven.
• Ensure the turntable is in place when you
operate the oven.
11
ENGLISH
Utensils should be checked to ensure that they are suitable for use in the microwave oven.
The following chart summarises the proper use of cooking utensils in your oven:
Other Helpful Instructions
For best results and more enjoyable cooking,
please read these comments thoroughly.
5. It may be necessary to increase or decrease the
cooking time in some recipes, depending
on the starting temperature of the foods.
For Best Results:
1. When determining the time for a particular food,
begin by using minimum time and checking condition occasionally. It is easy to overcook food
because microwaves cook very quickly.
2. Small quantities of food, or foods with low water
content may dry out and become hard if
cooked too long.
NOTE:
Air from the vent may become warm during
cooking.
Browning:
There are a few foods which are not cooked long
enough in the microwave oven to brown and may
need additional colour.
Coatings such as paprika, and browning agents
such as Worcestershire sauce may be used on
chops, meat patties or chicken pieces.
Roasts, poultry or ham, cooked for 10-15 minutes or
longer, will brown without extra additives.
Defrosting Frozen Foods:
1. Foods that have been frozen can be placed
directly in the oven for thawing. (Be certain
to remove any metallic ties or wraps.)
2. Defrost according to the Defrosting Tips found in
this Manual.
3. For areas of the food thawing faster than others,
cover with small pieces of aluminium foil. This
helps slow down or stop the defrosting process.
4. Some foods should not be completely thawed
before cooking. For example, fish cooks so
quickly that it is sometimes better to begin
cooking while still slightly frozen.
Cleaning and Care
BE SURE THE OVEN IS TURNED OFF BEFORE
CLEANING.
Keep the oven interior surfaces clean and dry.
As a general rule clean after each use.
DOOR
The door and door seals should be kept clean at
all times. Use only warm, soapy water to rinse then
dry thoroughly.
DO NOT USE ABRASIVE MATERIALS, SUCH AS
CLEANING POWDERS OR STEEL AND PLASTIC
PADS.
Metal parts will be easier to maintain if wiped
frequently with a damp cloth.
INTERIOR WALLS
Remove any crumbs and food remains between the
door and oven using a damp cloth. This area has
to be particularly well cleaned to ensure the door
will close properly. Remove any grease splashes
with a soapy cloth then rinse and dry. Do not use
abrasives which may scratch and damage the
painted surface of the oven.
NEVER POUR WATER INTO THE OVEN
EXTERIOR
Clean with mild soap and warm water, rinse and
dry with a soft cloth. Do not use abrasive materials.
Do not spill water in the vents. If the power lead
becomes soiled wipe it with a damp cloth.
ROLLER REST
The roller rest should be removed and cleaned in
hot soapy water at least once a week to prevent
grease restricting the rotation of the wheels.

WEIGHT DEFROST COOKING
See page 3.
Defrosting frozen food is one of the benefits of a
microwave oven. Defrosting using a microwave
oven is much faster than in the refrigerator and
safer than at room temperature, as it does not
promote the growth of harmful bacteria.
It is important to remember that defrosting takes
longer than normal cooking. Check the food,
turning it over at least once during defrosting.
1. Turn the power select knob (, ) to set
the defrosting mode. ( )
2. Turn the timer knob () clockwise to set the
weight (kg) of food.

desired power level. There are five power
levels from 70 Watts to max. The power
selector can be set to any one of these
positions.
Questions and Answers
Q. Why is steam coming out of the air exhaust
vent and/or why is water dripping from the
bottom of the door?
A. Steam is normally produced during cooking
operations. The microwave has been made
to vent this steam out of the side vent,
occasionally this steam condenses on the
door and water then drips out at the bottom
of the door. This is quite normal and safe.
Q. Why does my oven not always cook as fast
as the microwave cooking guide says?
A. Check your cooking guide again, to make
sure you’ve followed directions exactly;
and to see what might cause variations in
cooking time. Cooking guide times and heat
settings are suggestions, to help prevent
over-cooking . . . the most common problem
in getting used to a microwave oven.
Variations in the size, shape and weights and
dimensions could require longer cooking time.
Use your own judgement along with the
cooking guide suggestions to check
whether the food has been properly cooked
just as you would do with a conventional
cooker.
Q. Does microwave energy pass through the
viewing screen in the door?
A. No. The metal screen reflects the energy to
the oven cavity. The holes, or ports are
made to allow light to pass; they do not let
microwave energy through.
Q. Will the microwave oven be damaged if it
operates while empty?
A. Yes. Never run it empty.
Q. Why do sparks and crackling (arcing) occur
in the oven?
A. There may be several reasons why sparks
and crackling (arcing) within cavity happens.
■ You are using dishes with metal parts or trim
(silver or gold).
■ You have left a fork or other metal utensil in
the oven.
■ You are using a large amount of metal foil.
■ You are using a metal twist-tie.
Q. Why do eggs sometimes pop?
A. When baking 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 toothpick before cooking.
Never cook eggs witthout piercing their shells.
Q. Why is standing time recommended after the
cooking operation has been completed?
A. Standing time is very important.
With microwave cooking, the heat is in the
food, not in the oven.
14
ENGLISH
Many foods build up enough internal heat to
allow the cooking process to continue, even
after the food is removed from the oven.
Standing time for joints of meat, large
vegetables and cakes is to allow the inside to
cook completely, without overcooking the outside.
Q. What’s wrong when the oven light will not
glow?
A. ■ Light bulb has blown.
■ Door is not closed.
