Safety Precautions
You have just purchased a SAMSUNG microwave oven. Your Owner’s
Instructions contain much valuable information on cooking with your
microwave oven:
• Safety precautions
• Suitable accessories and cookware
• Useful cooking tips
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS.
READ CAREFULLY AND KEEP FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.
Before cooking food or liquids in your microwave oven, please check
that the following safety precautions are taken.
•
Only use utensils that are suitable for use in microwave ovens;
DO NOT use any metallic containers, Dinnerware with gold or silver
trimmings, Skewers, forks, etc.
Remove wire twist ties from paper or plastic bags.
Reason: Electric arcing or sparking may occur and may damage the oven.
• When heating food in plastic or paper containers, keep an eye on the oven
due to the possibility of ignition;
Do not use your microwave oven to dry papers or clothes.
• Small amounts of food require shorter cooking or heating time.
If normal times are allowed they may overheat and burn.
• If smoke is observed, switch off or unplug the appliance and keep the door
closed in order to stifle any flames;
• Microwave heating of beverages can result in delayed eruptive boiling,
therefore care must be taken when handling the container; To prevent this
situation
ALWAYS allow a standing time of at least 20 seconds after the oven has been
switched off so that the temperature can equalize.
Stir during heating, if necessary, and ALWAYS stir after heating.
In the event of scalding, follow these FIRST AID instructions:
* Immerse the scalded area in cold water for at least 10 minutes.
* Cover with a clean, dry dressing.
* Do not apply any creams, oils or lotions.
• NEVER fill the container to the top and choose a container that is wider at the
top than at the bottom to prevent the liquid from boiling over. Bottles with
narrow necks may also explode if overheated.
NEVER heat a babys bottle with the teat on, as the bottle may explode if
overheated.
• The contents of feeding bottles and baby food jars shall be stirred or shaken
and the temperature checked before consumption, in order to avoid burns;
• Eggs in their shell and whole hard-boiled eggs should not be heated in
microwave ovens since they may explode, even after microwave heating has
ended;
Also do not heat airtight or vacuum-sealed bottles, jars, containers, nuts in
shells, tomatoes etc.
• The oven should be cleaned regularly and any food deposits removed;
• Failure to maintain the oven in a clean condition could lead to deterioration of
the surface that could adversely affect the life of the appliance and possibly
result in a hazardous situation;
• DO NOT cover the ventilation slots with cloths or paper. They may catch fire
as hot air is evacuated from the oven.
The oven may overheat and automatically switch itself off. It will remain
inoperable until it has cooled sufficiently.
•
ALWAYS use oven gloves when removing a dish from the oven to avoid
unintentional burn.
At the front of the booklet you will find illustrations of the oven, and
more importantly the control panel, so that you can find the buttons
more easily.
The step-by-step procedures use three different symbols.

replacement fuse cover is required, it must be of the same colour as the pin face of
the plug.
Replacement covers are available from your Dealer. If the fitted plug is not suitable
for the power points in your house or the cable is not long enough to reach a
power point, you should obtain a suitable safety approved extension lead or
consult your Dealer for assistance. However, if there is no alternative to cutting off
the plug, remove the fuse and then safely dispose of the plug. Do not connect the
plug to a mains socket, as there is a risk of shock hazard from the bared flexible
cord.
The following parts of your microwave oven should be cleaned
regularly to prevent grease and food particles from building up:
• Inside and outside surfaces
• Door and door seals
• Turntable and Roller rings
ALWAYS ensure that the door seals are clean and the door
closes properly.
Failure to maintain the oven in a clean condition could lead to
deterioration of the surface that could adversely affect the of the
appliance and possibly result in a hazardous situation.
1. Clean the outside surfaces with a soft cloth and warm, soapy water. Rinse and
dry.
2. Remove any splashes or stains on the inside surfaces or on the roller ring with
a soapy cloth. Rinse and dry.
3. To loosen hardened food particles and remove smells, place a cup of diluted
lemon juice on the turntable and heat for ten minutes at maximum power.
4. Wash the dishwasher-safe plate whenever necessary.
DO NOT spill water in the vents. NEVER use any abrasive
products or chemical solvents.Take particular care when cleaning
the door seals to ensure that no particles:
• Accumulate
• Prevent the door from closing correctly

Cooking Instructions On Food Packaging
Microwave Symbols
On the front of your oven there is a smart oven symbol, as shown below.
This symbol has been introduced for your benefit when cooking or reheating
packaged food.
WARNING THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED.
This appliance must be earthed. In the event of an electrical short circuit, earthing
reduces the risk of electric shock providing an escape wire for the electric current. The
appliance is equipped with a mains lead which includes an earth wire for connecting to
the earth terminal of your mains plug. The plug must be plugged into a socket that is
properly installed and earthed.
The wires in this mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following
code:
• Green-and yellow
: Earth
• Blue
: Neutral
• Brown
: Live
Packaged food is also, increasingly, using a microwave symbol similar to the one below.
When you see this
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this appliance may not
correspond with the coloured markings indentifying the terminals in your plug,
proceed as follows.
Connect the green-and yellow wire to the terminal in the plug marked with the
letter E or the earth symbol ( ) or coloured green or green-and-yellow.
Connect the blue wire to the terminal marked with the letter N or coloured
black.
Symbol on food packaging, the cooking instructions are based on either the IEC
Power Output Rating, or the Reheating Categories A, B, C, D or E.
Consult a qualified electrician or service technician if in doubt about any of
these instructions.
Cooking Instructions
The manufacturer of this oven will not accept any liability for damage
to persons or material for non observance of these requirements.
There are no user+serviceable parts inside the oven and if the mains
lead of this appliance is damaged, it must only be replaced by
qualified service personnel approved by the manufacturer because
special tools are required.
The IEC Power Output rating is an internationally standardised rating, so all microwave
manufacturers now use the same method of measuring power output.
If food packaging gives cooking instructions based on IEC Power ratings, set cooking
times according to the IEC Power of your oven.
For example :
If the cooking instructions are based on a 650W oven, then you will need to reduce some
cooking time for the MW872 (850W).
Ready meals are now very convenient and popular. These are meals which are already
prepared and cooked by the food manufacturer, and then frozen, chilled or vacuum
sealed for long life.
Increasingly, heating times for such ready meals are being based on the Heating
Categories A, B, C, D and E.
On this instance, simply match the heating category of your oven to the instructions on
the food package, and set your timer accordingly.
For example :
If the heating instructions are 3 minutes on HIGH for a D category oven, then you will
need to set your timer for less than 3 minutes on HIGH for the MW872 (E category).
WARNING
Ensure that the plug and power cord are not damaged
before use.
If you have any reason to remove the moulded plug from
this appliance, immediately remove the fuse and dispose
of the plug.
Do not connect the plug to a mains socket under any
circumstances as there is a danger of electric shock.
CIRCUITS
Your smart oven should be operated on a separate
circuit from other appliances. Failure to do this may
cause the circuit breaker to trip, the fuse to blow, or the
food to cook more slowly.
15
Always remember that cooking instructions are intended only as a guide.
If you have followed the instructions and the food is still not piping hot
throughout, simply return it to the oven and cook it until it is.
