described in the manual. Do not use corrosive chemicals or
vapors in the microwave oven. This type of oven is
specifically designed to heat, cook, or dry food. It is not
designed for industrial or laboratory use.
As with any appliance, close supervision is necessary when
used by children.
Do not operate the microwave oven if it has a damaged cord
or plug, if it is not working properly, or if it has been damaged
or dropped.
The microwave oven should be serviced only by qualified
service personnel. Call an authorized service company for
examination, repair, or adjustment.
Do not cover or block any openings on the microwave oven.
Do not store this microwave oven outdoors. Do not use the
microwave oven near water - for example, near a kitchen
sink, in a wet basement, near a swimming pool, or similar
locations.
Do not immerse cord or plug in water.
Keep cord away from heated surfaces.
Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter.
See door surface cleaning instructions in the “Microwave
Oven Care” section.
To reduce the risk of fire in the oven cavity:
– Do not overcook food. Carefully attend the microwave oven
when paper, plastic, or other combustible materials are
placed inside the oven to facilitate cooking.
– Remove wire twist-ties from paper or plastic bags before
placing bags in oven.
– If materials inside the oven ignite, keep oven door closed,
turn oven off, and disconnect the power cord, or shut off

Liquids, such as water, coffee, or tea are able to be
overheated beyond the boiling point without appearing to
be boiling. Visible bubbling or boiling when the container is
removed from the microwave oven is not always present.
THIS COULD RESULT IN VERY HOT LIQUIDS
SUDDENLY BOILING OVER WHEN THE CONTAINER IS
DISTURBED OR A SPOON OR OTHER UTENSIL IS
INSERTED INTO THE LIQUID.
To reduce the risk of injury to persons:
– Do not overheat the liquid.
– Stir the liquid both before and halfway through heating it.
– Do not use straight-sided containers with narrow necks.
– After heating, allow the container to stand in the
microwave oven for a short time before removing the
container.
– Use extreme care when inserting a spoon or other
utensil into the container.
Do not mount over a sink.
Do not store anything directly on top of the microwave
oven when the microwave oven is in operation.
Clean Ventilating Hoods Frequently - Grease should not
be allowed to accumulate on hood or filter.

Electrical Requirements
WARNING
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
■
Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
For all cord connected appliances:
The microwave oven must be grounded. In the event of
an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of
electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric
current. The microwave oven is equipped with a cord
having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. The plug
must be plugged into an outlet that is properly installed
and grounded.
WARNING: Improper use of the grounding plug can
result in a risk of electric shock. Consult a qualified
electrician or serviceman if the grounding instructions are
not completely understood, or if doubt exists as to whether
the microwave oven is properly grounded.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,
fire, or electrical shock.
Do not use an extension cord. If the power supply cord is
too short, have a qualified electrician or serviceman install
an outlet near the microwave oven.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Observe all governing codes and ordinances.
Required:
A 120-volt, 60 Hz, AC-only, 15- or 20-amp electrical supply
with a fuse or circuit breaker.
Recommended:

Recommended Solutions
Microwave oven will
not operate
Check the following:
■
Household fuse or circuit breaker: If a household fuse has blown or a circuit breaker has tripped,
replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker. If the problem continues, call an electrician.
■
Magnetron: Try to heat 1 cup (250 mL) of cold water for 2 minutes at 100% cooking power. If water does
not heat, try the steps in the bullets below. If microwave oven still does not operate, call for service.
■
Door: Firmly close door. On some models, if a packaging spacer is attached to inside of the door, remove
it, then firmly close door.
If a message about the door appears in the display, the door has been closed for 5 minutes or more
without the microwave oven being started. This occurs to avoid unintended starting of the microwave
oven. Open and close the door, then start the cycle.
■
Control: Make sure control is set properly. Make sure Control Lock is OFF. Make sure Demo mode
(on some models) is OFF.
Arcing in the
microwave oven
Check the following:
■■
Soil buildup: Soil buildup on cavity walls, microwave inlet cover, cooking rack supports, and area
where the door touches the frame can cause arcing. See “General Cleaning” in the “Microwave Oven
Care” section.
Turntable alternates
rotation directions
■■
This is normal and depends on motor rotation at the beginning of the cycle.
Display shows
messages
■■
A flashing “:” or “PF” means there has been a power failure. Reset the clock.
■■
A letter followed by a number is an error indicator. Call for assistance.
Fan running during
cooktop usage
■■
This is normal. The microwave oven’s cooling fan, which is separate from the vent fan, automatically
comes on during microwave oven operation to cool the microwave oven. It may also automatically come
on and cycle on and off to cool the microwave oven’s controls while the cooktop below is being used.
Radio, TV, or cordless Check the following:
phone interference
■■ Proximity: Move the receiver away from the microwave oven, or adjust the radio or TV antenna.
■■
Soil: Make sure the microwave oven door and sealing surfaces are clean.
