Packaging materials
AEG microwave ovens require effective packaging to protect them
during transportation. Only the minimum packaging necessary is
used.
Packaging materials (e.g. foil or styrofoam) can place children at risk.
Danger of suffocation. Keep packaging material away from children.
¤
i
¤
!
All packaging materials used are environment friendly and can be
recycled. The cardboard is made from recycled paper and the wooden
parts are untreated. Plastic items are marked as follows :
«PE» polyethylene eg packaging film
«PS» polystyrene eg packaging (CFC-free)
«PP» polypropylene eg packaging straps
By using and re-using the packaging, raw materials are saved and
waste volume is reduced.
Packaging should be taken to your nearest recycling centre. Contact
your local council for information.

Disposal of old appliances
Old appliances should be made safe before disposal by removing the
plug, and cutting off and disposing of the power cable.
It should then be taken to the nearest recycling centre. Check with
your local Council or Environmental Health Office to see if there are
facilities in your area for recycling the appliance.

Safety instructions
!
General
• Your appliance is designed exclusively for the domestic purposes of defrosting, heating or cooking foods. The manufacturer bears no responsibility
in the case of improper usage.
• The appliance should only be operated with the turntable and turntable
support inserted.
• Only suitable microwave ovenware should be used.
• Do not leave the appliance unattended when warming or cooking food in disposable containers made of plastic, paper, or other flammable materials, due
to fire hazard.
• If smoke is observed, turn the oven off, disconnect the power supply and
keep the oven door closed to extinguish any flames. Contact your local
AEG Service Force Centre. Never use the microwave oven if it is no longer
functioning properly.
• This appliance complies with all relevant safety instructions. In order to
maintain the safety of the appliance, repairs should only be carried out by
an AEG Service Force Centre. WARNING: it is dangerous for anyone other
than qualified personnel to make any repairs requiring removal of the cover
providing protection from exposure to microwave energy. In the case of any
defect or breakdown, please therefore contact your local AEG approved
retailer or the AEG Service Force Centre
• WARNING: Should the door seals and/or door seal surfaces be damaged,
the appliance should not be operated until it has been repaired by the AEG
Service Force Centre.
• Damaged appliance parts can only be replaced by exactly the same make
of parts. Special tools are required for this operation.
• Never tamper with the lock mechanism of your microwave oven; you could
cause damage requiring repair by an authorised technician.
• WARNING: This appliance is designed to be operated by adults. Do not allow
children to use the microwave oven without supervision unless they have
been thoroughly instructed in the proper use and the dangers of improper
operation.
!
For trouble free and safe operation
• Never jam anything between the door and the door frame.
• Always keep the door seals and their surfaces clean.
• Do not keep any flammable items in the microwave. They could ignite
when the unit is switched on.
• Switch the appliance on only when the food has been placed inside the
cooking space, as it could overload if there is no food present.

Safety instructions
!
Microwaves
• During delayed boiling, the boiling temperature is attained without the typical steam bubbles rising. When the container is shaken, even gently, the liquid
may then suddenly vigorously boil over or spurt - with the risk of scalding the
user. To prevent liquids from boiling over and possible burns, whenever heating liquid, please place a teaspoon in the container and wait 20 seconds before
removing the containers from the appliance or adding anything to the liquid,
to avoid sudden spurting of the liquid.
• WARNING : Be sure to remove the cap or lid before cooking foods or heating liquids in a sealed bottle or container, which could otherwise explode.
• Make sure that a minimum temperature of 70°C is attained for the cooking /
heating of food. Never use a mercury or liquid thermometer for measuring the
temperature of the food.
• Baby food in jars or bottles should always be heated without a lid or top, and
well stirred or shaken after heating, to ensure uniform distribution of the
heat. Always check the temperature before feeding to your child in order
to avoid scalding.
• The hot food in a microwave oven will heat up the ovenware. For this reason
always use oven gloves for handling hot dishes.
• Never cook your food for too long or at too high a power setting. Some
areas of the food can dry out or even ignite.
• To protect the appliance against corrosion from moisture (condensation) in
the cavity or on the door, wipe these areas dry after each use.
• Do not use porcelain or ceramic crockery, or porous earthenware (e.g. on the
handles or unglazed bases) in your microwave as these types of dishes can
absorb moisture from the food as it is cooking. This can cause vapour pressure to build up which could shatter the dish.
• Food with «skin» or «peel», such as potatoes, tomatoes, sausages, and the like,
should be pierced with a fork so that any steam present can escape and the
food will not burst.
!
6
Do not use your microwave oven for the following :
• The heating or cooking of boiled, coddled eggs or fried eggs by microwave is
prohibited. They can burst and cause serious burns or irreparable damage to
your oven.
• to heat large quantities of cooking oil (fondue or deep frying) and drinks
containing a high percentage of alcohol - there is danger of spontaneous
combustion!
• to heat unopened cans, bottles, etc.
• to dry animals, textiles or paper.

What else to note...
• Food comes in all shapes, sizes and textures. The quantities also
vary. For these reasons the time and amount of energy needed to
defrost, heat or cook will also vary. As a general rule :
Double the quantity/weight = nearly * double the time
• Please refer to the cooking charts. To be on the safe side, always
select the shorter cooking time. Then extend the time as necessary.
• Microwaves work by making the food heat itself up. Because of this,
not all areas of the food will be heated at the same time. When heating larger quantities of food, it is particularly important to stir or turn
them over.
• “Standing time” is referred to in the cooking charts. This is the
time you should leave the food to stand without power (either
inside or outside the appliance). This ensures even distribution of
heat throughout the food.
Installing and Connecting
• Check whether your oven has suffered any damage during transport (deformed door or door seal, etc.). If you see any signs of
damage, contact your dealer before use.
• Do not use your appliance immediately (wait approx. 1-2 hours)
after transfer from a cold place to a warm place as condensation
may cause a malfunction.
• The oven must be set on a work surface at least 85 cm above floor
level.
• Place the oven on a flat and horizontal surface, away from any
source of heat or steam.
• Make sure that air may circulate freely around the oven.
For countertop models, leave sufficient space around the oven :
20 cm
cm
- 5 cm between the sides of the
oven and any walls or objects
10
- 20 cm above the oven
5 cm
- 10 cm behind the oven.

Practical tips for use
General
• After switching off your appliance, let food stand inside for a
few minutes to allow even heat distribution (standing time).
• Remove any aluminium foil or metal containing packaging before
preparing the food.
• Metal objects must be placed at least 2 cm away from the
cooking space walls and door. Otherwise arcing can occur,
resulting in damage to the appliance.
Cooking
–Whenever possible cook food covered. Only pastry dishes with crust
should be cooked uncovered.
–Refrigerated or frozen food require longer cooking times.
–Foods containing sauces should be stirred from time to time.
–Cook soft vegetables such as carrots, peas and cauliflower with
a little water.
–Cook soft vegetables such as mushrooms, peppers and tomatoes
without liquid.
–Increase cooking time by approximately 50 % for larger pieces.
Whenever possible, cut vegetables into equal-sized pieces.
Defrosting of meat, poultry and fish
–Place frozen, unpacked meat on an inverted plate in a glass or
porcelain container, so that the meat juice can drain.
–Halfway through defrosting, turn the food, dividing it when possible and removing the pieces that have defrosted.
27
Cooking charts and tips
i
Defrosting of butter, pieces of layer cake and cottage cheese
–Do not fully defrost in the appliance, but allow to complete defrosting at room temperature to give a more even result.
–Remove any metal or aluminium foil packaging and/or accessories before defrosting
Defrosting of fruit and vegetables
–Fruit and vegetables that are to be used raw later should not be
fully defrosted in the appliance, but left to complete defrosting at
room temperature outside the microwave oven.
–Fruit and vegetables that are to be cooked immediately afterwards
can be cooked without defrosting by using a higher power level.
Ready made meals
– Ready made meals in metal packages or plastic containers with
metal lids should be heated or defrosted in your microwave oven
only if they are explicitly marked as being suitable for microwave
use. Please follow the operating instructions printed on the packages
(e.g. remove the metal lid and prick the plastic foil).
i
Tips on microwaving
You can’t find cooking details for
specific quantity of food.
Base programming on a similar
type of food. Lengthen or shorten
the cooking time accordingly:
Double quantity = almost double
time
Half quantity = half time
28
The food is too dry.
Set a shorter cooking time or
reduce the microwave power
output.
The food is not yet defrosted,
heated through or cooked on
completion of programme time.
Select a longer programme time
or a higher microwave power
setting. Note that larger food will
require a longer time.
The food is overcooked on the
outside and undercooked in the
middle on completion of cooking
time.
Next time, try a lower power setting for a longer time. Stir
liquids, such as soup, periodically.

Cleaning and care
Failure to clean the appliance regularly may damage its surfaces, reduce
durability and lead to hazardous operation.
The Appliance Exterior
Regular cleaning of your oven will keep it in sound operating condition. Wipe the front of the appliance using a soft cloth and a mild,
warm detergent solution, and remove all food residue.
Do not use abrasive cleaning substances, strong detergents or coarse
abrasive cleaning materials.
Cooking area
The interior will remain in good condition for a long time so long as
you don't use scouring pads or rough abrasive materials. Use mild dishwashing liquid to clean the interior. You can neutralise odours inside
the cooking area by boiling a cup of water with a little lemon juice for
a few minutes in your oven.
Through normal operation, liquid may evaporate and condensation
may occur. This is normal and is especially noticeable when the room
temperature is low and the humidity of the air is high. After operation, be sure and wipe off the condensation with a soft cloth.
Turntable and Turntable support
The turntable can be removed by
pressing down on the outer edge
of one side so that the other side
tilts up.
Clean the turntable using washing-up liquid, or put it in the dishwasher.
Clean the turntable support with washing-up liquid.
This should be removed straight after each use and cleaned using
washing-up liquid or in the dishwasher.

- Call your local AEG Service Force Centre. The interior light bulb can be
exchanged only by trained AEG technicians.
☞
... the food is taking longer to heat through and cook than before ?
- Set a longer cooking time (double quantity = nearly double time) or
- if the food is colder than usual, rotate or turn from time to time or
- set a higher power setting.

AEG Service
You can perform certain maintenance on your own; these operations
are listed in section «What to do if...». First verify the problem, then
look it up in the appropriate section. If you do not find the solution therein, then please contact your Service Centre. Have all necessary information handy; this way it will be easier for the technician to diagnose the
problem and determine whether or not he must make a service call.
When contacting AEG Service Department, please quote the E-Number
/PNC and S-Number which you will find
on the appliance's rating plate (see
arrow).
Quoting these numbers enables the service department to identify the required
spare part so that the technician can
repair the oven on his first visit. This
saves you any extra costs that might be
incurred if the technician has to make a
repeat visit.
i
Keep these numbers handy by recording them here :

If you decide to call the AEG Service Department to help with any of
the aforementioned problems on the grounds of faulty operation,
there will be a charge for the service technician’s visit, even during
the guarantee period. Please therefore follow the advice given in this
instruction book or any accompanying literature very carefully.
