OWNER’S MANUAL MICROWAVE OVEN Please read this owner’s manual thoroughly before operating. MS253 **** MS363 **** (optional, please check model speciﬁcation) www.lg.com MFL69666601_00 Copyright © 2017 LG Electronics Inc. All Rights Reserved CONTENTS 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.
