Microwave oven
• Never let the power cord touch or pass over
heating appliances.
• Unlike other appliances, the microwave is a highvoltage and a high electrical-current piece of
equipment. Improper use or repair could result in
harmful exposure to excessive microwave energy or
in electric shock.
• Do not use the microwave for the purpose of
dehumidification e.g using the microwave to dry out
wet newspapers, clothes, toys, electric devices. It
can be the cause of serious damage to safety such
as a fire, a burn or a sudden death due to an electric
shock.
• The microwave is not intended for use by young
children or elderly persons. Only allow older
children to use the microwave without supervision
when adequate instructions have been given. Ensure
the child is able to use the microwave in a safe way
and understands the hazards of improper use.
5
• Improper use may cause damage such as a fire,
electric shock or burn.
• Accessible parts may become hot during use. Young
children should be kept away. They may get a burn.
• Liquids or other foods must not be heated in sealed
containers since they are liable to explode. Remove
the plastic wrapping from food before cooking or
defrosting.
• In some cases food should be covered with plastic
film, for heating or cooking.
• Be certain to use proper accessories on each
operation mode, refer to the guide page 9.
• It is hazardous for anyone other than a competent
person to carry out any service or repair operation
that involves the removal of a cover which gives
protection against exposure to microwave energy.
• When the microwave is operated in the
combination mode, children should only use the
microwave under adult supervision due to the
temperatures generated.
• The microwave must be used freestanding.
• This microwave is not intended for use by persons
(including children) with reduced physical, sensory
or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and
knowledge, unless they have been given supervision
or instruction concerning use of the microwave by a
person responsible for their safety.
• The microwave is not intended to be operated by
an external timer or by a separate control.
• Keep ventilation openings in the microwave
enclosure or in the built-in structure, clear of

Microwave oven
Cautions
• Do not operate the microwave with the door open
due to the safety interlocks built into the door
mechanism. It is important not to tamper with the
safety interlocks. It could result in harmful exposure
to excessive microwave energy. (Safety interlocks
automatically switch off any cooking activity when
the door is opened.)
• Do not place any object (such as kitchen towels,
napkins, etc.) between the microwave front face
and the door or allow food or cleaner residue to
accumulate on sealing surfaces. It could result in
harmful exposure to excessive microwave energy.
• Do not operate the microwave if it is damaged. It
is particularly important that the microwave 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. It could result
in harmful exposure to excessive microwave energy.
• An exhaust outlet is located on the top, bottom
or side of the microwave. Don’t block the outlet. It
could result in damage to your microwave and poor
cooking results.
• Do not operate the microwave when empty. It
is best to leave a glass of water in the microwave
when not in use. The water will safely absorb all
microwave energy, if the microwave is accidentally
started.
• Improper use could result in damage to the
microwave.
• Do not use wooden containers and ceramic
containers that have metallic (e.g. gold or silver)
inlays. Always remove metal twist ties. Check that
the utensils are suitable for use in the microwave
before use. They may heat-up and char. Metal
objects in particular may arc in the microwave,
which can cause serious damage.
• Do not rinse the tray by placing it in water just after
cooking. This may cause breakage or damage.
• Please ensure cooking times are correctly set, small
amounts of food require shorter cooking or heating
time. Over cooking may result in the food catching
on fire and subsequent damage to the microwave.
• Be certain to place the microwave so the front of
the door is 8 cm or more behind the edge of the
surface on which it is placed, to avoid accidental
tipping of the appliance. Improper use could result in
bodily injury and microwave damage.
• When heating liquids, e.g. soups, sauces and
beverages in your microwave:
• Before cooking, pierce the skin of potatoes, apples
or any such fruit or vegetables. They could burst.
- Avoid using straight sided containers with narrow
necks.
• Do not cook eggs in their shell. Eggs in their shell
and whole hardboiled eggs should not be heated
in microwave since they may explode, even after
microwave heating has ended. Pressure will build up
inside the egg which will burst.
- Stir the liquid before placing the container in the
microwave and again halfway through the heating
time.
- After heating, let it stand in the microwave for a
short time; stir or shake it again carefully and check
the temperature of it before consuming to avoid
burns (especially, contents of feeding bottles and
baby food jars).
Microwave oven
• Do not attempt deep fat frying in your microwave.
This could result in a sudden boil over of the hot
liquid.
• If smoke is observed, switch off or disconnect the
microwave from the power supply and keep the
microwave door closed in order to stifle any flames.
It can cause serious damage such as a fire or electric
shock.
7
• When food is heated or cooked in disposable
containers made of plastic, paper or other
combustible materials, keep an eye on the
microwave and check it frequently.
• The microwave should be cleaned regularly and
any food deposits should be removed. Failure to
maintain the microwave in a clean condition could
lead to deterioration of the surface. This could
adversely affect the life of the appliance and possibly
result in a hazardous situation.
• Follow exact directions given by each manufacturer
for their popcorn product. Do not leave the oven
unattended while the corn is being popped. If corn
fails to pop after the suggested times, discontinue
cooking. Never use a brown paper bag for popping
corn. Never attempt to pop leftover kernels
Overcooking could result in the corn catching a f re.
Ecological hints
To save energy and help protect the environment, we
recommend that you follow these hints:
• Do not install the microwave on a wet floor or in
• Ensure there are no obstructions preventing the
door from closing properly.
Environmental information
• After installation, please dispose of the packaging
with due regard to safety and the environment.
• Materials marked with the

• Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners or sharp metal
scrapers to clean the microwave door glass. They
can scrathc the surface, which may result in the glass
shattering.
• The connection may be achieved by having the plug
accessible or by incorporating a switch in the fixed
wiring in accordance with the wiring rules.
• This appliance is not intended for use by persons
(including children) with reduced physical, sensory
or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and
knowledge, unless they have been given supervision
or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a
person responsible for their safety.
• Keep ventilation openings in the microwave
enclosure or the built-in structure, clear of

Microwave oven
Microwave-safe utensils
Microwaves cannot penetrate metal. They will bounce
off any metal object in the microwave and cause
arcing. Most heat resistant non-metallic cooking utensils
are safe for use in the microwave. However, never
use metal or metal trimmed utensils when using the
microwave feature. If you have any doubts about a
particular utensil, there is a simple way to find out
if it can be used in the microwave. Carry out the
microwave test.
Microwave test
• Place the utensil next to a glass bowl filled with
water.
• Microwave on HIGH power for 1 minute. If the
water heats up but the utensil remains cool to the
touch, the utensil is microwave-safe. However, if the
water does not change temperature but the utensil
becomes warm, microwaves are being absorbed by
the utensil and it is not safe for use.
• There are many items on hand in any kitchen
that can be used as cooking equipment in the
microwave. These are listed below:
Dinner plates
Many kinds of dinnerware are microwave-safe. If in
doubt consult the manufacturer’s literature or perform
the microwave test.
Plastic storage containers
These can be used to hold foods that are to be
quickly reheated. However, they should not be used
to hold foods that will need considerable time in the
microwave as hot foods will eventually warp or melt
plastic containers.
Paper
Paper plates and containers are convenient and safe to
use, provided that the cooking time is short and foods
to be cooked are low in fat and moisture. Paper towels
are also very useful for wrapping foods and for lining
baking trays in which greasy foods such as bacon are
cooked.
Warning! In general, avoid coloured
paper products as the colour may
run. Some recycled paper products
may contain impurities which could
cause arcing or fires when used in
the microwave.
Plastic cooking bags
Provided they are made specially for cooking, these
bags are microwave safe. Always make a slit in the bag
so that steam can escape.
Caution - Never use ordinary plastic
bags for cooking, as they will melt
and rupture.
Glassware
Plastic microwave cookware
Glassware that is heat-resistant is microwave-safe. This
would include all brands of microwave tempered glass
cookware. However, do not use delicate glassware,
such as tumblers or wine glasses, as these might shatter
as the food warms.
A variety of shapes and sizes of microwave cookware
are available. For the most part, you can probably use
items you already have on hand rather than investing in
new kitchen equipment.
Microwave oven
11
Pottery, stoneware and ceramic
Containers made of these materials are usually fine for
use, but they should be tested to be sure. Carry out
the microwave test.
Caution - Some items with high
lead or iron content are not suitable
as cooking utensils.

To assist with the use of the auto defrost categories, use the auto defrost guide below:
Food to be defrosted must be in a suitable microwave proof container and placed uncovered on the glass turntable.
If necessary, shield small areas of meat or poultry with flat pieces of aluminium foil. This will prevent thin areas
becoming warm during defrosting. Ensure the foil does not touch the microwave walls.
Separate items like minced meat, chops, sausages and bacon as soon as possible.
Once the microwave beeps, remove the food from the microwave, turn the food over and return to the microwave.
Remove defrosted portions at this point. Continue to defrost remaining pieces. Allow to stand until completely
thawed.

Reheating guide
To heat or reheat successfully in the microwave, it is important to follow several guidelines.
Measure the amount of food in order to determine the time needed to reheat. For best results, arrange the food in a
circular pattern.
Room temperature food will heat faster than refrigerated food.
Canned foods should be taken out of the can and placed in a microwavable container.
The food will be heated more evenly if covered with a microwavable lid or pierced plastic wrap.
Remove cover carefully to prevent steam burns.

Food characteristics & microwave
cooking
Keeping an eye on things
The recipes in the book have been formulated with great care, but your success in preparing them depends on how
much attention you pay to the food as it cooks. The microwave is equipped with a light that turns on automatically
when it is in operation so that you can see inside and check the progress of your food.
The instructions given in recipes, for example: to elevate, stir are to be thought of as the minimum steps
recommended. If the food seems to be cooking unevenly, simply make the necessary adjustments you think
appropriate to correct the problem.
Factors affecting microwave cooking times
Many factors affect cooking times. The temperature of ingredients used in a recipe makes a big difference in cooking
times. For example, a cake made with ice-cold butter, milk, and eggs will take considerably longer to bake than one
made with ingredients that are at room temperature.
All of the recipes in this user guide give a range of cooking times. In general, food remains under cooked at the lower
end of the time range, and you may sometimes want to cook your food beyond the maximum time given, according
to personal preference. Some of the recipes, particularly those for bread, cake, and custards, recommend that food
be removed from the microwave when they are slightly under cooked. This is not a mistake. When allowed to stand,
usually covered, these foods will continue to cook outside of the microwave as the heat trapped within the outer
portions of the food gradually travels inward. If the food is left in the microwave until it is cooked all the way through,
the outer portions will become overcooked or even burnt.
Density of food
Light, porous food such as cakes and breads cook more quickly than heavy, dense foods such as roasts and casseroles.
Care must be taken when microwaving porous food so that the outer edges do not become dry and brittle.
Height of food
The upper portion of large foods such as roasts, will cook more quickly than the lower portion. Therefore, it is wise to
turn the roasts several during cooking.
Moisture content of food
Since the heat generated from microwaves causes moisture to evaporate, relatively dry food such as roasts and some
vegetables must be either sprinkled with water prior to cooking or covered to retain moisture.
32
Microwave oven
Bone and fat content of food
As bones conduct heat and fat cooks more quickly than meat. Care must be taken when cooking bony or fatty cuts of
meat in order to prevent unevenly or overcooked meat.
Quantity of food
The number of microwaves in your microwave remains constant regardless of how much food is being cooked.
Therefore, the more food you place in the microwave, the longer the cooking time. Remember to decrease cooking
times by at least one third when halving a recipe.
Shape of food
Microwaves penetrate about 2 cm into food, the interior portion of thick foods are cooked as the heat generated
on the outside travels inward. Only the outer edge of food is cooked by microwave energy; the rest is cooked by
conduction.
The worst possible shape for a food that is to be microwaved is a thick square. The corners will burn long before the
centre is even warm. Round thin foods and ring shaped foods cook most successfully in the microwave.
Covering
A cover traps heat and steam which causes food to cook more quickly. Use a lid or microwave cling film with a corner
folded back to prevent splitting.
Browning
Meats and poultry that are cooked for fifteen minutes or longer will brown lightly in their own fat. Foods that are
cooked for a shorter period of time can be brushed with a browning sauce such as Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce
or barbecue sauce to achieve an appetizing colour.
Note: Since relatively small amounts of browning sauces are added to food, the original flavour of the recipe will not
be altered.
Covering with greaseproof paper
The use of greaseproof paper to cover the food may cause the food to dry out slightly.
Microwave oven
33
Arranging and spacing
Individual foods such as baked potatoes, small cakes and hors d’oeuvres will heat more evenly if placed in the
microwave an equal distance apart, preferably in a circular pattern. Never stack foods on top of one another.
Stirring
Stirring is one of the most important of all microwaving techniques. In conventional cooking, food is stirred for the
purpose of blending. Microwaved food, however, is stirred in order to spread and redistribute heat. Always stir from
the outside towards the centre as the outside of the food heats first.
Turning over
Large foods such as roasts and whole chickens should be turned so that the top and bottom will cook evenly. It is also
a good idea to turn cut up chicken and chops.
Placing thicker portions facing outwards
Since microwaves are attracted to the outside portion of food, it makes sense to place thicker portions of meat,
poultry and fish to the outer edge of the baking dish. This way, thicker portions will receive the most microwave
energy and the food will cook evenly.
Shielding
Strips of aluminium foil (which block microwaves) can be placed over the corners or edges of square and rectangular
foods to prevent those portions from overcooking. Never use too much foil and make sure the foil is secured to the
dish or it may cause ‘arcing’ in the microwave.
Elevating
Thick or dense foods can be elevated with the use of the supplied high & low racks so that microwaves can be
absorbed by the underside and centre of the foods.
Piercing
Foods enclosed in a shell, skin or membrane are likely to burst in the microwave unless they are pierced prior to
cooking, for example, yolks and whites of eggs, clams, oysters and whole vegetables and fruits.
34
Microwave oven
Testing if cooked
As food cooks so quickly in the microwave, it is often necessary to test it frequently. Some food types are left in
the microwave until completely cooked, but most food types, including meats and poultry, are removed from the
microwave while still slightly under cooked and allowed to finish cooking during standing time.
The internal temperature of foods will rise between 5 ° F (3 ° C) and 15 ° F (8 ° C) during standing time.
Standing time
Foods are often allowed to stand for 3 to 10 minutes after being removed from the microwave. Usually the foods are
covered during standing time to retain heat unless they are supposed to be dry in texture (some cakes and biscuits, for
example). Standing allows foods to finish cooking and also helps flavour blend and develop.
MAFF reheating cooked chilled foods
This microwave has been tested and labelled to the Ministry of Agriculture Fisheries and Food (MAFF)agreement,
concerning the reheating of cooked chilled food.
The heating category represents the microwave’s ability to heat small quantities of food (approx. 350 g), it does not
represent the microwave’s general performance. The category (from the letter A to E) will help you to reheat small
quantities of food such as microwavable ready meals. The greater the heating category of the microwave, the less
heating time that is required.
Displayed on the food packages will be the cooking times for each of the BAND categories. For example A may be
10 minutes. B may be 9 minutes etc depending on the food type.

Servicing & cleaning
Servicing
This microwave must only be serviced by an authorised
service engineer and only genuine spare parts must be
used.
Under no circumstances must you attempt to repair
the microwave yourself. Repairs carried out by an
inexperienced persons may cause injury or serious
malfunction.
Keep the inside of the
microwave clean
Caution - Do not use harsh
detergent or abrasive cleaners.
• Food spatters or spilled liquids stick to microwave
walls and between the seal and door surfaces. Wipe
up over spills with a damp cloth straight away.
• Crumbs and over spills will absorb microwave
energy and lengthen cooking times. Use a damp
cloth to wipe out crumbs that fall between the door
and the frame. It is important to keep this area clean
to assure a tight seal.
• Remove greasy spatters with a soapy cloth then
rinse and dry.
• The metal tray can be washed by hand and is
dishwasher proof.
Keep the outside of the
microwave clean
Caution - Do not use abrasive
materials, such as cleaning powders
or steel and plastic pads.
Caution - Do not use steam
cleaners.
• Clean the outside of your microwave with soap
and water then with clean water and dry with a soft
cloth or paper towel.
• To prevent damage to the operating parts inside
the microwave, the water should not be allowed to
seep into the ventilation openings.
Cleaning the control panel
• Unplug the microwave from the electrical socket
when you clean control panel with wet cloth or
spray water on control glass to clean.
- If it is not unplugged, this product can be operated
by touching the Start/Quick Start button.
• To clean control panel, open the door to prevent
the microwave from accidentally starting, and wipe
a damp cloth followed immediately by a dry cloth.
Press the Stop/Clear button after cleaning.
• If steam accumulates inside or around the outside
of the microwave door, wipe the panels with a
soft cloth. This may occur when the microwave is
operated under high humidity conditions and in no
way indicates a malfunction of the unit.
• The door and door seals should be kept clean. Use
only warm, soapy water, rinse then dry thoroughly.
• Metal parts will be easier to maintain if wiped
frequently with a damp cloth.

Troubleshooting
Frequently Asked Questions
What’s wrong when the microwave light will not
glow?
Does microwave energy pass through the
viewing screen in the door?
Why does the beep tone sound when a
button on the control panel is touched?
Will the microwave function be damaged if
it operates empty?
Why do eggs sometimes pop?
Why is standing time recommended after
microwave cooking is over?
Why doesn’t my microwave always cook as fast as
the cooking guide says?
Microwave oven
Answer
There may be several reasons why the microwave light
will not glow. Either the light bulb has blown or the
electric circuit has failed.
No. The holes, or ports, are made to allow light to pass;
they do not let microwave energy through.
The BEEP tone sounds to assure that the setting is
being properly entered.
Yes. Never run it empty.
When baking, frying, or poaching eggs, the yolk may
pop due to steam build up inside the yolk membrane.
To prevent this, simply pierce the yolk before cooking.
Never microwave eggs in the shell.
After microwave cooking is finished, food keeps on
cooking during standing time. This standing time finishes
cooking evenly throughout the food. The amount of
standing time depends on the density of the food.
Check your cooking guide again to make sure you’ve
followed directions correctly, and to see what might
cause variations in cooking time. Cooking guide times
and heat settings are suggestions, chosen to help
prevent overcooking, the most common problem in
getting used to this microwave. Variations in the size,
shape, weight and dimensions of the food require
longer cooking time.
Use your own judgment along with the cooking guide
suggestions to test food conditions, just as you would
do with a conventional cooker.
