Precautions
Precautions to avoid possible exposure to excessive microwave energy.
When heating liquids, e.g. soups, sauces and beverages in your microwave
oven, overheating the liquid beyond boiling point 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:
You cannot operate your oven with the door open due to the safety interlocks
built into the door mechanism. These safety interlocks automatically switch off
any cooking activity when the door is opened; which in the case of a
microwave oven could result in harmful exposure to microwave energy.
It is important not to tamper with the safety interlocks.
1 Avoid using straight sided containers with narrow necks.
Do not place any object between the oven front face and the door or allow
food or cleaner residue to accumulate on sealing surfaces.
2 Do not overheat.
3 Stir the liquid before placing the container in the oven and again halfway
through the heating time.
Do not operate your 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.
4 After heating, allow to stand in the oven for a short time, stir or shake
them again carefully and check the temperature of them before
consumption to avoid burns (especially, contents of feeding bottles and
baby food jars).
Be careful when handling the container.
Your oven should not be adjusted or repaired by anyone except qualified
service personnel.
Warning
Warning
Please ensure cooking times are correctly set as
over cooking may result in the FOOD catching fire
and subsequent damage to your oven.
Always allow food to stand after being cooked by
microwaves and check the temperature of them
before consumption. Especially contents of feeding
bottles and baby food jars.

Questions & Answers
Microwaves are a form of energy similar to radio and television waves and
ordinary daylight. Normally, microwaves spread outwards as they travel
through the atmosphere and disappear without effect. Microwave ovens,
however, have a magnetron which is designed to make use of the energy in
microwaves. Electricity, supplied to the magnetron tube, is used to created
microwave energy.
These microwaves enter the cooking area through openings inside the oven.
A turntable or tray is located at the bottom of 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.

Unpacking &
Installing
By following the basic steps on these two pages you will be able to quickly check that your oven is operating
correctly. Please pay particular attention to the guidance on where to install your oven. When unpacking your
oven make sure you remove all accessories and packing. Check to make sure that your oven has not been
damaged during delivery.
Place the oven in the level location of your choice with
more than 85cm height but make sure there is at least
30cm of space on the top and 10cm at the rear for proper
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.
Unpack your oven and place it on a flat level
surface.
