Using the Auto Defrost button
The defrost choices are preset in the oven. The defrost cycle provides you with the best defrosting method
for frozen foods, because the oven automatically sets the defrosting times according to the entered weight.
For added convenience, the auto defrost function beeps to remind you to check or turn over the food
during the defrost cycle.
Press the Auto Defrost button once and select the food weight. The available weight ranges from 0.1 to
6.0 lbs.
1. Press the Auto Defrost button.
2. Use the number buttons to enter the weight.
3. Press the START button.
After pressing the START button, the display counts down the defrosting time. The oven
will beep twice during the defrost cycle. At this time, open the door and turn the food as
needed. Remove any thawed portions, then return the frozen portions to the oven and
press the START button to resume the defrost cycle.
The defrost cycle continues while the oven is beeping and only stops when the door is
opened.
Defrosting tips
When using auto defrost, the entered weight is the net weight in pounds and tenths of pounds
(the weight of the food minus the container).
Use the auto defrost cycle for raw food only. The auto defrost cycle gives best results when
the food to be thawed is a minimum of 0°F (taken directly from a true freezer). If food has been
stored in a refrigerator-freezer that does not maintain a temperature of 5°F or below, always
program a lower food weight (for a shorter defrosting time) to prevent actually cooking the food.
If the food is stored outside the freezer for up to 20 minutes, enter a lower food weight.
The shape of the package alters the defrosting time. Shallow rectangular packets defrost more
quickly than a thick block.
Separate the pieces as they begin to defrost. Separated pieces defrost more easily.
Shield areas of food with small pieces of foil if they start to become warm.
You can use small pieces of aluminum foil to shield foods such as chicken wings, leg tips, and
fish tails, but the foil must not touch the sides of the oven as foil causes arcing, which can
damage the oven lining.

Microwaves
Microwave energy actually penetrates food, attracted and absorbed by the water, fat and sugar content.
The microwaves cause the molecules in the food to move rapidly and the rapid movement of these
molecules creates friction and the resulting heat cooks the food.
Place the meat fat-side down on a microwave-safe roasting rack in a microwave-safe dish.
Use narrow strips of aluminum foil to shield any bone tips or thin pieces of meat. Check the
temperature in several places before letting the meat stand the recommended time.
The following temperatures are removal temperatures. The temperature of the food will rise

Cooking eggs
WARNING
Never cook eggs in their shells, and never warm up hard-boiled eggs in their shells as they
can explode. Always pierce whole eggs to keep them from bursting.
Vegetables should be washed prior to cooking. Usually no extra water is needed. If dense
vegetables such as potatoes, carrots and green beans are being cooked, add about ¼ cup
water.
Small vegetables (sliced carrots, peas, lima beans, etc.) will cook faster than larger ones.
Whole vegetables, such as potatoes, acorn squash or corn on the cob should be arranged in a
circle on the turntable before cooking. They will cook more evenly if turned over halfway through
the cook time.
Always place vegetables such as asparagus and broccoli with the stem pointing towards the
edge of the dish and the tips toward the center.
When cooking cut vegetables, always cover the dish with a lid or vented microwavable plastic
wrap.
Whole, unpeeled vegetables such as potatoes, squash, eggplant, etc., should have their skins
pierced in several spots before cooking to prevent them from bursting.
For a more even cooking result, stir or rearrange whole vegetables halfway through the cook
time.
Generally, the denser the food, the longer the standing time. (Standing time refers to the time
necessary for dense, large foods and vegetables to finish cooking after they come out of the
oven.) A baked potato can stand on the counter for five minutes before cooking is completed,
while a dish of peas can be served immediately.

cleaning and maintaining your
microwave oven
Keeping your microwave oven clean improves its performance, wards off
unnecessary repairs, and lengthens its life.
Cleaning the exterior
It’s best to clean spills on the outside of your microwave oven as they occur. Use a soft cloth and warm,
soapy water. Rinse and dry.
Do not get water into the vents. Never use abrasive products or chemical solvents.
CAUTION
Cleaning the interior
Ensure that the microwave oven has cooled down before cleaning it to avoid injury.
CAUTION
CAUTION
Remove the glass tray from the oven when cleaning the oven or tray.
To prevent the tray from breaking, handle it with care and do not put it in water immediately after
cooking. Wash the tray carefully in warm sudsy water or in the microwave oven.
Clean the interior surfaces (oven cavity) of your microwave oven periodically to remove any splashes or
stains. To remove hardened food articles and remove smells, place 2 cups of water (add lemon juice for
extra freshness) in a four-cup measuring glass at High power for 5 minutes or until boiling. Let it stand in the
oven for one or two minutes.
Cleaning the door and door seals
Always ensure that the door seals are clean and that the door closes properly. Take particular care when
cleaning the door seals to ensure that no particles accumulate and prevent the door from closing correctly.
Wash the glass door with very mild soap and water. Be sure to use a soft cloth to avoid scratching.
If steam accumulates inside or outside the oven door, wipe with a soft cloth. Steam can accumulate
when operating the oven at high humidity and in no way indicates microwave leakage.
Cleaning the turntable and roller rings
Clean the roller rings periodically and wash the turntable as required. The turntable can safely be washed in
your microwave oven.

Cleaning the grease filter
To avoid risk of personal injury or property damage, do not operate oven hood without filters in place.
WARNING
1. To avoid risk of personal injury or property damage, do
not operate the oven hood without the filters in place.
05 Cleaning and maintaining
The grease filter should be removed and cleaned at least once a month.
2. Soak the grease filter in hot water and a mild detergent.
Rinse well and shake to dry.
WARNING
Do not use ammonia or put the grease filter in the
microwave oven. The aluminum will darken.
3. To return the filter to its position, slide it into the side slot,
then push it upwards and towards the oven center to lock
it.
Storing and repairing your microwave oven
If you need to store your microwave oven for a short or extended period of time, choose a dust-free, dry
location. Dust and dampness may adversely affect the ability of the microwave parts.
WARNING
Do not repair, replace or service any part of your microwave oven yourself. Allow only a qualified
service technician to perform repairs. If the oven is faulty and needs servicing, or you are in doubt
about its condition, unplug the oven from the power outlet and contact your nearest service center.
Do not use the oven if the microwave oven is damaged, in particular when the door or door seals are
damaged. This could be a broken hinge, a worn out seal or distorted/bent casing.
Do not remove the oven from its casing.
This microwave oven is for home use only and is not intended for commercial use.
