IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
www.geadvantium.com
WARNING!
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
■ Do not operate the oven without the
oven rack (turntable) in place. The oven
rack (turntable) must be unrestricted so
it can turn.
■ During and after use, do not touch, or
let clothing or other flammable materials
contact any interior area of the oven;
allow sufficient time for cooling first.
■ Do not store anything directly on top
of the oven surface when the oven is
in operation.
ARCING
■ Cook meat and poultry thoroughly—
meat to at least an INTERNAL
temperature of 160°F, and poultry to at
least an INTERNAL temperature of 180°F.
Cooking to these temperatures usually
protects against foodborne illness.
■ Keep the oven free from grease buildup.
■ Potentially hot surfaces include the
oven door, floor, walls and oven rack
(turntable).
Arcing can occur during both speedcooking and microwave cooking. If you see arcing, press the
CLEAR/OFF pad and correct the problem.
Arcing is the microwave term for sparks in
the oven. Arcing is caused by:
■ Metal, such as twist-ties, poultry pins,
or gold-rimmed dishes, in the oven.
■ Metal or foil touching the side of the
oven.
■ Recycled paper towels containing small
metal pieces being used in the oven.
■ Foil not molded to food (upturned edges
act like antennas).
■ Use foil only as recommended in
this guide.
■ Metal cookware used during either
speedcook or microwave cooking (except
for the pans provided with the oven).
THE
VENT
FAN
■ The fan will operate automatically under
certain conditions (see the Automatic Fan
section). Take care to prevent the starting
and spreading of accidental cooking fires
while the vent fan is in use.
■ Clean the underside of the oven often.
Do not allow grease to build up on the
oven or the fan filters.
■ In the event of a grease fire on the
surface units below the oven, smother
a flaming pan on the surface unit by
covering the pan completely with a lid,
a cookie sheet or a flat tray.
4
■ Use care when cleaning the vent fan
filters. Corrosive cleaning agents, such
as lye-based oven cleaners, may damage
the filters.
■ When preparing flaming foods under the
oven, turn the vent fan on.
■ Never leave surface units beneath your
oven unattended at high heat settings.
Boilovers cause smoking and greasy
spillovers that may ignite and spread if
the oven vent fan is operating. To
minimize automatic fan operation, use
adequate sized cookware and use high
heat on surface units only when
necessary.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
www.geadvantium.com
WARNING!
FOODS
■ When microwaving, place all foods
and containers on the glass microwave
tray.
■ Do not pop popcorn in your oven
unless in a special microwave popcorn
accessory or unless you use popcorn
labeled for use in microwave ovens.
■ Do not boil eggs in this oven. Pressure
will build up inside egg yolk and will
cause it to burst, possibly resulting
in injury.
■ Do not operate the oven without food
inside. This may cause damage to the
oven. It increases the heat around the
magnetron and can shorten the life of
the oven.
■ Foods with unbroken outer “skin”
such as potatoes, hot dogs, sausages,
tomatoes, apples, chicken livers and
other giblets, and egg yolks should
be pierced to allow steam to escape
during cooking.
Oven-safe
cookware for
Speedcook,
Oven/Bake
& Warming
features
The oven rack (turntable)
must always be in place
when using the oven.
Put food or non-metal,
oven-save cookware
directly on the
black metal tray
for speedcooking, baking
or warming.
■ The oven and door will get very hot
when speedcooking or using the
oven/bake feature.
■ Cookware will become hot . Oven
mitts will be needed to handle the
cookware.
■ Do not use coverings, containers
or cooking/roasting bags made
of foil, plastic, wax or paper when
speedcooking.
■ Do not cover the oven rack
(turntable), trays or any part
of the oven with metal foil.
This will cause arcing in the oven.
■ Use the black metal flat tray in the
same way you would use a shallow
baking pan or baking tray.
■ SUPERHEATED WATER
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.
■ Place food or oven-safe cookware
directly on the trays when cooking.
■ Any oven-safe dish can be used in
your oven. Recipes in the Advantium
Cookbook were tested in Pyrex® and
Anchor Hocking® glass cookware and
Corningware® ceramic casseroles.
Cooktimes and results may vary
when using other types of oven-safe
dishes. Place them directly on the
black metal tray.
■ Do not use the oven to dry newspapers.
■ Use of the glass microwave tray with
the speedcook or oven/bake features
will result in inferior cooking
performance.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
www.geadvantium.com
WARNING!
Microwavesafe
cookware
The oven rack (turntable)
must always be in place
when using the oven.
The glass microwave tray
should always be in place
when microwaving.
Make sure to use suitable cookware during microwave cooking. Most glass casseroles,
cooking dishes, measuring cups, custard cups, pottery or china dinnerware which does
not have metallic trim or glaze with a metallic sheen can be used. Some cookware is labeled
“suitable for microwaving.”
■ Place food or microwavable container
directly on the glass microwave tray to
cook your food.
■ Use of the black metal tray during
microwave cooking will result in
inferior cooking performance.
■ If you are not sure if a dish is
microwave-safe, use this test: Place in
the oven both the dish you are testing
and a glass measuring cup filled with
1 cup of water—set the measuring
cup either in or next to the dish.
Microwave 30-45 seconds at high.
If the dish heats, it should not be
used for microwaving.
■ If the dish remains cool and only the
water in the cup heats, then the dish
is microwave-safe.
■ Cookware may become hot because
of heat transferred from the heated
food. Oven mitts may be needed to
handle the cookware.
■ Do not use recycled paper products.
Recycled paper towels, napkins and
waxed paper can contain metal flecks
which may cause arcing or ignite.
Paper products containing nylon or
nylon filaments should be avoided,
as they may also ignite.
■ Use foil only as directed in this guide.
TV dinners may be microwaved in foil
trays less than 3/4″ high; remove the
top foil cover and return the tray to
the box. When using foil in the oven,
keep the foil at least 1 inch away from
the sides of the oven.
■ Do not use the oven to dry
newspapers.
■ If you use a meat thermometer while
cooking, make sure it is safe for use in
microwave ovens.
6
■ Some styrofoam trays (like those that
meat is packaged on) have a thin strip
of metal embedded in the bottom.
When microwaved, the metal can
burn the floor of the oven or ignite
a paper towel.
■ Paper towels, waxed paper and plastic
wrap can be used to cover dishes in
order to retain moisture and prevent
spattering. Be sure to vent plastic
wrap so steam can escape.
■ Not all plastic wrap is suitable for use in
microwave ovens. Check the package
for proper use.
■ “Boilable” cooking pouches and
tightly closed plastic bags should be
slit, pierced or vented as directed by
package. If they are not, plastic could
burst during or immediately after
cooking, possibly resulting in injury.
Also, plastic storage containers should
be at least partially uncovered because
they form a tight seal. When cooking
with containers tightly covered with
plastic wrap, remove covering carefully
and direct steam away from hands
and face.
■ Plastic cookware—Plastic cookware
designed for microwave cooking is
very useful, but should be used
carefully. Even microwave-safe plastic
may not be as tolerant of overcooking
conditions as are glass or ceramic
materials and may soften or char if
subjected to short periods of
overcooking. In longer exposures
to overcooking, the food and
cookware could ignite.
Follow these guidelines:
1. Use microwave-safe plastics only
and use them in strict compliance
with the cookware manufacturer’s
recommendations.
2. Do not microwave empty containers.
3. Do not permit children to use
plastic cookware without complete
supervision.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING!
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
■ Don’t defrost frozen beverages in
narrow-necked bottles (especially
carbonated beverages). Even if the
container is open, pressure can build
up. This can cause the container to
burst, possibly resulting in injury.
■ Foods cooked in liquids (such as
pasta) may tend to boil more rapidly
than foods containing less moisture.
Should this occur, refer to the Care
and Cleaning of the oven section for
instructions on how to clean the
inside of the oven.
■ Hot foods and steam can cause
burns. Be careful when opening any
containers of hot food, including
popcorn bags, cooking pouches
and boxes. To prevent possible injury,
direct steam away from hands
and face.
■ Do not overcook potatoes. They could
dehydrate and catch fire, causing
damage to your oven.
■ Avoid heating baby food in glass jars,
even with the lid off. Make sure all
infant food is thoroughly cooked. Stir
food to distribute the heat evenly. Be
careful to prevent scalding when
warming formula. The container may
feel cooler than the formula really is.
Always test the formula before feeding
the baby.
■ Do not attempt to deep fry in the
oven.
WARNING!
PACEMAKERS
All microwave ovens must meet Federal DHHS and FCC requirements. However,
the operation of some pacemakers may be affected by microwaves. Cognizant of this
problem, most pacemaker manufacturers have taken steps to minimize the susceptibility
of their products to external interference, including microwaves. Most new pacemakers
(1982 and later) are now protected from microwave interference. However, prior to
using your microwave oven it is recommended that persons with pacemakers consult
the manufacturer of the device for additional information and/or their physician to
ensure their pacemaker will not be affected by microwaves.

What is Advantium?
www.geadvantium.com
Getting to know
Advantium
The new Advantium oven uses
breakthrough Speedcook technology
to harness the power of light. The
Advantium oven cooks the outside
of foods much like conventional
radiant heat, while also penetrating
the surface so the inside cooks
simultaneously. While radiant heat
is the primary source of power, a
“microwave boost” is added with
certain foods. Foods cook evenly and
fast, retaining their natural moisture.
Turntable
■ The oven rack (turntable) rotates to ensure even cooking.
Controls
■ The oven control contains preset recipes.
■ Turn and press dial makes menu selection easy.
Speedcooking
■ A 500 watt halogen bulb and a 600 watt ceramic heater cook
food from above.
■ One 375 watt ceramic heater cooks food from below.
■ The convection fan ensures even heating.
Oven/Bake and Warming
■ One 1100 watt heater cooks food from above.
■ One 375 watt ceramic heater cooks food from below.
■ The convection fan ensures even heating.
Microwave
■ A microwave “boost” is automatically added with certain foods.
■ The oven can also be used as a 900 watt microwave oven.

power level
Advantium uses power from a
high intensity halogen light, ceramic
heaters, and microwaves to cook
food from the top, bottom, and
interior simultaneously to seal in
moisture and flavor.
When using the pre-set speedcook
recipes on the food menu, the power
levels are already selected for you.
However, these power levels can be
adjusted before or during cooking.
Also, the manual cook feature allows
you to speedcook items not on the
pre-set food menu by selecting your
own cook time and power level
settings.
Each power level gives you heater
power and microwave energy for a
certain percentage of the time.
UPPER POWER (U) controls both the
upper heater and microwave power.
A higher UPPER POWER setting will
utilize more upper heater power,
browning food faster on top. A lower
UPPER POWER setting utilizes more
microwave power, causing food to
cook more evenly throughout. Select
a higher setting for foods such as
pizza and baked goods. Select a
lower setting for foods such as
casseroles, meat and fish.
1. Press the SPEEDCOOK button
and turn the dial to select FOOD
MENU or MANUAL COOK. Press
the dial to enter.
2. Follow instructions from To use
a pre-set speedcook menu or Manual
Cook.
3. To change the power level when
prompted by the display, turn the
dial clockwise to increase or

If you do not want to change one of the
settings, just press the dial to move to the
next selection.
NOTE: Be careful when adjusting power
levels so that you do not over- or
undercook food.
LOWER POWER (L) controls the
lower heater. Select a higher setting
to brown foods more on the bottom.
Select a lower setting for less
browning on the bottom.

Baking
The oven rack (turntable)
must always be in place
when using the oven.
Put food or oven-safe
cookware directly on the
black metal tray to bake.
Bake with
preheat
Baking allows you to cook foods the same
way as a conventional oven, using a heating
element to raise the temperature of the air
inside the oven. Any oven temperature from
250°F to 450°F may be set. A fan gently
circulates this heated air throughout the
oven, over and around the food, producing
golden brown exteriors and rich, moist
interiors.
Before you begin, make sure the oven rack
(turntable) is in place. Use the black metal
tray at all times when baking.
Caution: When baking, remember that the oven,
door and dishes will be very hot!
Because the heated air is kept constantly
moving, not permitting a layer of cooler air
to develop around the food, some foods
cook slightly faster than in regular oven
cooking.
1. Press the oven/bake button.
2. When using the OVEN/BAKE
mode to cook baked goods such
as cakes, brownies, cookies, pies,
rolls, etc., reduce the oven

Defrosting
tips
Use DEFROST-AUTO for meat, poultry
and fish. Use DEFROST-TIME for most
other frozen foods.
■ Foods frozen in paper or plastic
can be time defrosted in the
package, but foods should be
taken out of the package when
using DEFROST-AUTO. Closed
packages should be slit, pierced or
vented after food has partially
defrosted. Plastic storage
containers should be partially
uncovered.
■ Family-size, prepackaged frozen
dinners can be defrosted and
microwaved. If the food is in
a foil container, transfer it to
a microwave-safe dish.
■ Foods that spoil easily should not
be allowed to sit out for more
than one hour after defrosting.
Room temperature promotes the
growth of harmful bacteria.
30
■ For more even defrosting of
larger foods, such as roasts, use
DEFROST-AUTO. Be sure large
meats are completely defrosted
before cooking.
■ When defrosted, food should be
cool but softened in all areas.
If still slightly icy, return to the
microwave very briefly, or let
it stand a few minutes.

Microwave
sensor
cooking
The sensor feature detects the increasing
humidity released during cooking. The
oven automatically adjusts the cooking
time to various types and amounts of food.
Do not use the Sensor Features
twice in succession on the same food
portion—it may result in severely
overcooked or burnt food. If food
is undercooked after the first
countdown, use TIME COOK for
additional cooking time.
Covered
The proper containers and covers are
essential for best sensor cooking.
Vented
■ Always use microwave-safe
containers and cover them with
lids or vented plastic wrap.
Never use tight sealing plastic
containers—they can prevent
steam from escaping and cause
food to overcook.
■ Be sure the outside of the cooking
containers and the inside of the
oven are dry before placing food
in the oven. Beads of moisture
turning into steam can mislead
the sensor.
Dry off dishes so they don’t
mislead the sensor.
■ Beverages are best heated
uncovered.
MICROWAVE SENSOR PROGRAMS:
■ Beverage
■ Popcorn – Prepackaged microwave popcorn, 1.5 oz. to 3.5 oz.
■ Reheat – Single servings (4 to 6 oz.) of leftovers.
■ Soup

To use all
sensor
programs
Advantium’s microwave mode features
sensor cooking. The oven automatically
senses when food is done and shuts itself
off—eliminating the need to program
cooktimes and power levels.
1. Press the MICROWAVE button.
2. Turn the dial to select the food
you want. Press the dial to enter.
3. Press the dial or press the START/
PAUSE button to start cooking.
Do not open the oven door until
time is counting down in the display.
If the door is opened, close it and
press START/PAUSE immediately.
If the food is not done enough, use
TIME COOK in the microwave
selector to cook for more time.
NOTE: Do not use the Sensor
Features twice in succession on the
same food portion—it may result in
severely overcooked or burnt food.
■ If you have been speedcooking or
baking and the oven is already
hot, it may indicate that it is too
hot for sensor cooking. Of course,
you can always continue with the
non-sensor functions.
■ To shorten or lengthen the
cook time, wait until the time
countdown shows in the display.
Then turn the dial to add or
subtract time.
32
■ Drinks heated with the BEVERAGE
feature may be very hot. Remove
the container with care.
■ If you open the door while sensor
cooking, SENSOR ERROR will
appear. Close the door, press
START to begin again.
Notes about the Reheat program:
Reheated foods may have wide
variations in temperature. Some
areas may be extremely hot.
For improved reheating quality
on crisper foods, use the TIMED
REHEAT feature found by pressing
WARM/REHEAT.
It is best to use TIME COOK and not
REHEAT for these foods:
■ Bread products
■ Food that must be reheated
uncovered.
■ Foods that need to be stirred
or turned.
■ Foods calling for a dry look or
crisp surface after reheating.
Microwaving
www.geadvantium.com
Things that
are normal
Interference
Sounds
■ TV/radio interference might be
noticed while using the microwave.
Similar to the interference caused by
other small appliances, it does not indicate
a problem with the microwave. Move
the radio or TV as far away from the
microwave as possible, or check the
position of the TV/radio antenna.
■ You may hear a dull thumping sound while
the oven is operating.
Oven Heat
■ Cookware may become hot because of
heat transferred from the heated food.
Oven mitts may be needed to handle
the cookware.
■ Steam or vapor may escape from around
the door.

Be certain the oven control is turned
off before cleaning any part of
this oven.
Walls, Floor, Inside Window, Metal
and Plastic Parts on the Door
Never use a commercial oven
cleaner on any part of your oven.
Do not clean the inside of the oven
with metal scouring pads. Pieces can
break off the pad, causing electrical
shock.
Some food or liquids may fall into
the heater areas. The heaters will
cook most of the food away. Any
remaining residue will not affect
cooking.
Removable
oven rack
(turntable)
The area underneath the oven rack
(turntable) should be cleaned
frequently to avoid odors and
smoking during a cooking cycle.
The oven rack (turntable) can be
broken if dropped. Wash carefully
in warm, sudsy water.
Dry completely and replace.
To replace the oven rack (turntable),
place its center over the hub in the
center of the oven and turn it until it
seats into place.

How to clean
the outside
We recommend against using cleaners
with ammonia or alcohol, as they can
damage the appearance of the
microwave oven. If you choose to use a
common household cleaner, first apply
the cleaner directly to a clean cloth, then
wipe the soiled area.
Case
Clean the outside with a sudsy cloth.
Rinse and then dry. Wipe the window
clean with a damp cloth.
Glass Door (on some models)
Wipe with a clean damp sponge.
Dry thoroughly. Do not use cleaning
sprays, large amounts of soap and
water, abrasives or sharp objects on
the panel—they can damage it.
Stainless Steel Control Panel and Door
(on some models)
Do not use a steel wool pad; it will scratch
the surface.
To clean the stainless steel surface,
use a hot, damp cloth with a mild
detergent suitable for stainless steel
surfaces. Use a clean, hot, damp cloth
to remove soap. Dry with a dry, clean
cloth.
If food soil remains, try a general
kitchen cleaner, such as Fantastik®,
Simple Green® or Formula 409®.
For hard-to-clean soil, use a standard
stainless steel cleaner, such as
Bon-Ami® or Cameo®.
Apply cleaner with a damp sponge.
Use a clean, hot, damp cloth to
remove cleaner. Dry with a dry, clean
cloth. Always scrub lightly in the
direction of the grain.
The vent
fan
The vent fan has 2 metal reusable
vent filters.
After cleaning, use a stainless steel
polish, such as Stainless Steel Magic®,
Revere Copper and Stainless Steel
Cleaner® or Wenol All Purpose
Metal Polish®. Follow the product
instructions for cleaning the stainless
steel surface.
Bottom
Clean off the grease and dust on the
bottom often. Use a solution of warm
water and detergent.
Vent Grill
Use warm soapy water and a dishcloth
to wipe off the grill. If desired, use
cotton swabs to get in between the
grill louvers.
Door Frame
It’s important to keep the area clean
where the door seals against the
oven. Use only mild, non-abrasive
detergents applied with a clean
sponge or soft cloth. Rinse well.
Charcoal Filter (on some models)
Ovens configured to recirculate air
back into the room should also use
a charcoal filter.

Cooktop light/
night light
1. To replace the cooktop light/
night light, first disconnect the
power at the main fuse or circuit
breaker panel.
2. Remove the screw from the
side of the light compartment
cover and lower the cover until
it stops.
3. Be sure the bulb to be replaced is
cool before removing. Gently pull
the bulb from the receptacle.
Remove screw
Replace with 20-watt (max.) 12 volt
halogen bulb. Order WB36X10176 from
your GE supplier. High-intensity 20-watt
bulbs, available in supermarkets and
hardware stores, may also be used for
replacements.
4. Raise the light cover and replace
the screw. Connect electrical
power to the oven.
Reusable vent
filters
The metal filters trap grease released
by foods on the cooktop. They also
prevent flames from foods on the
cooktop from damaging the inside
of the oven.
For this reason, the filters must
always be in place when the hood
is used. The vent filters should be
cleaned once a month, or as needed.
Removing and
cleaning the
filters
To remove, slide them to the rear
using the tabs. Pull down and out.
To replace, slide the filters into the
frame slots on the back of each
opening. Press up and to the front
to lock into place.
To clean the vent filters, soak them
and then swish around in hot water
and detergent. Don’t use ammonia
or ammonia products because
they will darken the metal. Light
brushing can be used to remove
embedded dirt.
Rinse, shake and let dry before
replacing.

remove the grille.
To install a new filter, remove plastic
and other outer wrapping from the
new filter.

of the oven as shown maneuvering it
behind the plastic grille until it fits
squarely into place.
It will rest at an angle behind the
plastic grille on two side support tabs
and in front of the right rear tab.
Replace the grille and 2 screws.
Reconnect power at the main fuse.
