GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance must be grounded. This oven is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with a grounding plug.
It must be plugged into a wall receptacle that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with the National
Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances. In the event of an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces risk of
electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric current.
WARNING – Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of electric shock.
Electrical Requirements
Check Installation Instructions for proper location for the power supply.
The electrical requirements are a 120 volt 60 Hz, AC only, 15 amp. or more protected
electrical supply. It is recommended that a separate circuit serving only the oven be
provided.
The oven is equipped with a 3-prong grounding plug. It must be plugged into a wall
receptacle that is properly installed and grounded. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES CUT OR REMOVE THE GROUNDING PIN FROM THE PLUG.
Notes: 1. If you have any questions about the grounding or electrical instructions, consult a qualified electrician or
service person.
2. Neither Sharp nor the dealer can accept any liability for damage to the oven or personal injury resulting
from failure to observe the correct electrical connection procedures.
Radio or TV Interference
Should there be any interference caused by the microwave oven to your radio or TV, check that the microwave
oven is on a different electrical circuit, relocate the radio or TV as far away from the oven as feasible or check
position and signal of receiving antenna.

I N F O R M AT I O N Y O U N E E D T O K N O W
ABOUT YOUR OVEN
The fan will automatically start when heat rises from
range surface units or burners and when convection,
high mix, low mix or the broil settings are used.
This Operation Manual is valuable: read it carefully
and always save it for reference.
A good microwave cookbook is a valuable asset.
Check it for microwave cooking principles, techniques,
hints and recipes. See pages 28 and 29 for ordering
the Ultimate Accessory, the SHARP CAROUSEL
MICROWAVE COOKBOOK.
Condensation is a normal part of microwave cooking.
Room humidity and the moisture in food will influence
the amount of moisture that condenses in the oven.
Generally, covered foods will not cause as much
condensation as uncovered ones. Ventilation openings
must not be blocked.
NEVER use the oven without the turntable and
support nor turn the turntable over so that a large dish
could be placed in the oven. The turntable will turn both
clockwise and counterclockwise. See page 11 for
complete instructions.
The oven is for food preparation only. It should not be
used to dry clothes or newspapers.
Your oven is rated 850 watts by using the IEC Test
Procedure. In using recipes or package directions,
check food a minute or two before the minimum time
and add time accordingly.
ALWAYS have food in the oven when it is on to absorb
the microwave energy.
When using the oven at power levels below 100%, you
may hear the magnetron cycling on and off.
ABOUT FOOD
DON’T
FOOD
DO
Eggs, sausages,
fruits &
vegetables
• Puncture egg yolks before cooking
to prevent “explosion”.
• Cook eggs in shells.
• Pierce skins of potatoes, apples,
squash, hot dogs and sausages so
that steam escapes.
• Dry nuts or seeds in shells.
Popcorn
• Use specially bagged popcorn for the
microwave oven.
• Pop popcorn in regular brown bags
or glass bowls.
• Listen while popping corn for the
popping to slow to 1 or 2 seconds or
use special POPCORN pad.
• Exceed maximum time on popcorn
package.
• Transfer baby food to small dish and
heat carefully, stirring often. Check
temperature before serving.
• Heat disposable bottles.
Baby food
• Put nipples on bottles after heating
and shake thoroughly. “Wrist” test
before feeding.
General
• Cut baked goods with filling after
heating to release steam and avoid
burns.
• Stir liquids briskly before and after
heating to avoid “eruption”.
• Use deep bowl, when cooking liquids
or cereals, to prevent boilovers.
5
• Reheat whole eggs.
• Heat bottles with nipples on.
• Heat baby food in original jars.
• Heat or cook in closed glass jars or
air tight containers.
• Can in the microwave as harmful
bacteria may not be destroyed.
• Deep fat fry.
• Dry wood, gourds, herbs or wet papers.
INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW
ABOUT MICROWAVE COOKING
• Arrange food carefully. Place thickest areas towards
outside of dish.
• Rearrange foods such as meatballs halfway
through cooking both from top to bottom and from
the center of the dish to the outside.
• Watch cooking time. Cook for the shortest amount
of time indicated and add more as needed. Food
severely overcooked can smoke or ignite.
• Add standing time. Remove food from oven and
stir, if possible. Cover for standing time which allows
the food to finish cooking without overcooking.
• Cover foods while cooking. Check recipe or cookbook for suggestions: paper towels, wax paper,
microwave plastic wrap or a lid. Covers prevent
spattering and help foods to cook evenly.
• Check for doneness. Look for signs indicating that
cooking temperatures have been reached.
Doneness signs include:
• Shield with small flat pieces of aluminum foil any
thin areas of meat or poultry to prevent overcooking
before dense, thick areas are cooked thoroughly.
- Food steams throughout, not just at edge.
• Stir foods from outside to center of dish once or twice
during cooking, if possible.
- Poultry thigh joints move easily.
• Turn foods over once during microwaving to
speed cooking of such foods as chicken and hamburgers. Large items like roasts must be turned over
at least once.
- Fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.
- Center bottom of dish is very hot to the touch.
- Meat and poultry show no pinkness.
ABOUT SAFETY
• Check foods to see that they are cooked to the
United States Department of Agriculture's
recommended temperatures.
TEMP
160°F
165°F
• ALWAYS use potholders to prevent burns when
handling utensils that are in contact with hot food.
Enough heat from the food can transfer through
utensils to cause skin burns.
• Avoid steam burns by directing steam away from
the face and hands. Slowly lift the farthest edge of
a dish's covering and carefully open popcorn and
oven cooking bags away from the face.
FOOD
... for fresh pork, ground meat,
boneless white poultry, fish,
seafood, egg dishes and frozen
prepared food.
• Stay near the oven while it's in use and check
cooking progress frequently so that there is no
chance of overcooking food.
... for leftover, ready-to-reheat
refrigerated, and deli and carryout “fresh” food.
170°F
... white meat of poultry.
180°F
... dark meat of poultry.
• NEVER use the cavity for storing cookbooks or
other items.
• Select, store and handle food carefully to preserve
its high quality and minimize the spread of
foodborne bacteria.
To test for doneness, insert a meat thermometer in a
thick or dense area away from fat or bone. NEVER
leave the thermometer in the food during cooking,
unless it is approved for microwave oven use.
• Keep waveguide cover clean. Food residue can
cause arcing and/or fires.
• Use care when removing items from the oven so
that the utensil, your clothes or accessories do not
touch the safety door latches.
ABOUT CHILDREN AND THE MICROWAVE
Children below the age of 7 should use the microwave
oven with a supervising person very near to them.
Between the ages of 7 and 12, the supervising person
should be in the same room.
Children should be taught all safety precautions: use
potholders, remove coverings carefully, pay special
attention to packages that crisp food because they
may be extra hot.
The child must be able to reach the oven comfortably;
if not, he/she should stand on a sturdy stool.
Don’t assume that because a child has mastered one
cooking skill he/she can cook everything.
At no time should anyone be allowed to lean or swing
on the oven door.
Children need to learn that the microwave oven is not
a toy. See page 25 for Child Lock feature.

If this occurs, ERROR will appear and sensor
cooking will be interrupted. To continue cooking,
touch the STOP/CLEAR pad and select cooking
time and power. When sensor detects the vapor
emitted from the food, remainder of cooking time
will appear. Door may be opened when remaining
cooking time appears on display. At this time, you
may stir or season food, as desired.
MANUAL DEFROST
If the food that you wish to defrost is not listed on the
CompuDefrost Chart or is above or below the limits in
the “Amount” column on the chart, you need to defrost
manually.
You can defrost any frozen food, either raw or previously cooked, by using power level 3. Follow the exact
3-step procedure found under To Set Power Level on
page 12. Estimate defrosting time and press 3 for 30%
when you select the power level.
5. Check food for doneness after cooking with sensor
settings. If additional time is needed, continue to
cook with variable power and time.
For either raw or previously cooked frozen food, the
rule of thumb is approximately 5 minutes per pound.
For example, defrost 5 minutes for 2-3 cups of casserole or 1 pound of frozen spaghetti sauce.
6. If the sensor does not detect vapor,

7. At the end of any cycle, open oven door or touch
STOP/CLEAR pad. The time of day will reappear

Always stop the oven periodically to remove or
separate the portions that are defrosted. If food is not
defrosted at the end of the estimated defrosting time,
program the oven in 1 minute increments on power
level 3 until totally defrosted.
8. Any sensor setting can be programmed with More
or Less Time Adjustment. See page 24.
When using plastic containers from the freezer, defrost
only long enough to remove from the plastic in order to
place food in a microwave-safe dish.
Selecting Foods:
1. The sensor works with foods at normal storage
temperature. For example, foods for reheating would
be at refrigerator temperature and potatoes for baking would be room temperature.
SENSOR COOKING
Sharp's Sensor is a semi-conductor device that
detects the vapor (moisture and humidity) emitted from
the food as it heats. The Sensor adjusts the cooking
times and power level for various foods and quantities.
It takes the guesswork out of microwave cooking.
2. More or less food than the quantity listed in the charts
should be cooked by time and variable power.
Covering Foods:
Some foods work best when covered. Use the cover
recommended in the Sensor Cooking chart for these
foods.
Using Sensor Settings:
1. Room temperature should not exceed 95˚F.
2. Be sure the exterior of the cooking container
and the interior of the oven are dry. Wipe off any
moisture with a dry cloth or paper towel.
1. Casserole lid.
2. Plastic wrap: Use plastic wrap recommended for
microwave cooking. Cover dish loosely; allow
approximately 1/2 inch to remain uncovered to
allow steam to escape. Plastic wrap should not
touch food.
3. Sensor cooking can only be entered within 1 minute
after cooking, opening and closing the door or
touching the STOP/CLEAR pad.

CLEANING AND CARE
measuring cup. Boil for several minutes using 100%
power. Allow to set in oven until cool. Wipe interior with
a soft cloth.
EXTERIOR
The outside surface is precoated metal and plastic.
Clean the outside with mild soap and water; rinse and
dry with a soft cloth. Do not use any type of household
or abrasive cleaner.
TURNTABLE/TURNTABLE
SUPPORT
DOOR
The ceramic turntable and turntable support can be
removed for easy cleaning. Wash them in mild, sudsy
water; for stubborn stains use a mild cleanser and
scouring sponge as described above. They are also
dishwasher-safe using top rack.
Wipe the window on both sides with a damp cloth to
remove any spills or spatters. Metal parts will be easier
to maintain if wiped frequently with a damp cloth. Avoid
the use of harsh abrasives.
TOUCH CONTROL PANEL
Care should be taken in cleaning the touch control panel.
If the control panel becomes soiled, open the oven door
to inactivate the control panel before cleaning. Wipe
the panel with a cloth dampened slightly with water only.
Dry with a soft cloth. Do not scrub or use any sort of
chemical cleaners. Avoid the use of excess water. Close
door and touch STOP/CLEAR.
OVEN RACKS
The high and low baking racks can be removed for easy
cleaning and stored away from the microwave oven
when racks are not needed. After each use, wash them
in mild, sudsy water. For any stubborn stains, use a
mild kitchen cleanser and scouring sponge as described
above. They are dishwasher-proof.
INTERIOR- AFTER MICROWAVE
COOKING
The oven walls, ceiling and floor are stainless steel.
Cleaning after microwave cooking is easy because no
heat is generated to the interior surfaces; therefore,
there is no baking and setting of spills or spattering. To
clean the interior surfaces, wipe with a soft cloth and
warm water. DO NOT USE ABRASIVE OR HARSH
CLEANERS OR SCOURING PADS. For heavier soil,
use mild soap; rinse thoroughly with hot water.
GREASE FILTERS
INTERIOR- AFTER CONVECTION,
MIX OR BROIL COOKING
Filters should be cleaned at least once a month. Never
operate the fan or oven without the filters in place.
Spatters may occur because of moisture and grease.
Wash immediately after use with hot, soapy water. Rinse
and polish dry. Harder to remove spatters may occur if
oven is not thoroughly cleaned or if there is long time/
high temperature cooking. If so, you may wish to
purchase an oven cleaner pad with liquid cleaner within
it-not a soap filled steel pad-for use on stainless or
porcelain surfaces. Follow manufacturer's directions
carefully and be especially cautious not to get any of
the liquid cleaner in the perforations on the wall or
ceiling or any door surfaces. Rinse thoroughly and
polish dry.
1. Pull the tab toward the front of the oven, down slightly
and remove the filter. Repeat for the other filter.
2. Soak the filters in a sink or dish pan filled with hot
water and detergent. DO NOT use ammonia or
other alkali; they will react with the filter material and
darken it.
3. Agitate and scrub with a brush to remove embedded dirt.
4. Rinse thoroughly and shake dry.
5. Replace by fitting the filter back into the opening.
WAVEGUIDE COVER
The waveguide cover is located on the ceiling in the
oven cavity. It is made from mica so requires special
care. Keep the waveguide cover clean to assure good
oven performance. Carefully wipe with a damp cloth
any food spatters from the surface of the cover immediately after they occur. Built-up splashes may overheat and cause smoke or possibly catch fire. DO NOT
REMOVE THE WAVEGUIDE COVER.
ODOR REMOVAL
Occasionally, a cooking odor may remain in the oven.
To remove, combine 1 cup water, grated peel and juice
of 1 lemon and several whole cloves in a 2-cup glass
Grease

CLEANING AND CARE
FAN
CHARCOAL FILTER
The fan will automatically start when heat rises from
range surface units or burners and when convection,
high mix, low mix or the broil settings are used. This
protects the microwave oven from excessive temperature rise. The fan will stay on until the temperature
decreases. It cannot be turned off manually during
this time.
Charcoal Filter, Sharp Part Number RK-220 is used for
No-vented, recirculated installation. The filter should be
changed every 6 to 12 months depending on use.
1. Disconnect power to the oven at the circuit breaker
panel or by unplugging.
2. Remove 3 screws that secure louver.
For other uses, select either high or low speed.
3. Remove louver by inserting flat edge screwdriver
over each tab depressing the tab down and moving
louver away from unit.
PRECAUTIONS FOR PROPER USE:
1. DO NOT leave range unattended while using high
temperatures. Automatic fan may start and provide
excessive air to the surface units. This may cause
spattering or boilover.
4. Pull the louver away from the oven.
5. Slide Charcoal Filter into position on support tabs.
6. Push louver back into place and gently snap tabs
into place by hand (engaging both the bottom and
top tabs) and replace the 3 screws to secure louver.
2. Avoid burning food.
3. Keep grease filters clean.

7. Replace the oven light cover and charcoal filter, if
used; push louver back in place (engaging both the
bottom and top tabs) and replace the louver
mounting screws.
4. Close light cover and secure with screw removed in
step 2.
CAUTION: Light cover may become very hot. Do not
