Grounding Instructions
This appliance 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. This appliance 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 grounding can result in a
risk of electric shock.
Consult a qualified electrician or service person if the
grounding instructions are not completely understood,
or if doubt exists as to whether the appliance is
properly grounded.
Electrical Requirements
The oven is designed to operate on a Standard 120
V/60 Hz household outlet. Be sure the circuit is at
least 15 A or 20 A and the microwave oven is the only
appliance on the circuit. It is not designed for 50 Hz
or any circuit other than a 120 V/60 Hz circuit.
No other electrical appliances or lighting circuits
should be on this line. If in doubt, consult a licensed
electrician.
Voltage Warning
The voltage used at the wall receptacle must be the
same as specified on the oven name plate located
on the back or on the side of the control panel of the
oven. Use of a higher voltage is dangerous and may
result in a fire or other type of accident causing oven
damage. Low voltage will cause slow cooking. If the
microwave oven does not perform normally in spite of
proper voltage, remove and reinsert the plug.
Placement of the Oven
The microwave oven can be placed easily in your
kitchen, family room, or anywhere else in your home.
Place the oven on a flat surface such as a kitchen
countertop or a specially designed microwave oven
cart. Do not place oven above a gas or electric range.
Free airflow around the oven is important. Allow at
least 4 inches of space at the top, sides, and back of
the oven for proper ventilation.
1. Use of an extension cord is not recommended. If
the power supply cord is too short, have a qualified
electrician or service person install an outlet near
the appliance.
2. If it is necessary to use an extension cord, use
only a 3-wire extension cord that has a 3-blade
grounding plug, and a 3-slot receptacle that will
accept the plug on the appliance. The marked rating
of the extension cord must be equal to or greater
than the electrical rating of the appliance.
NOTE
•• A short power supply cord is provided to reduce
the risks resulting from becoming entangled in
or tripping over a longer cord.
•• Longer cord sets or extension cords are
available and may be used if care is exercised
in their use.
•• If a long cord or extension cord is used, (1)
the marked electrical rating of the cord set or
extension cord must be at least as great as
the electrical rating of the appliance, (2) the
extension cord must be a grounding-type 3-wire
cord, and (3) the longer cord should not be
draped over a counter or table where children
could pull on it, or located where it could
present a trip hazard.
See the separate Installation Instructions for
directions on placing the cord properly.
Do Not Block Air Vents
All air vents should be kept clear during cooking. If
air vents are covered during oven operation the oven
may overheat. If this happens, a sensitive thermal
safety device automatically turns the oven off. The
oven will be inoperable until it has cooled sufficiently.
Ensure proper ground
exists before use
Keep the electrical power cord dry and do not pinch
or crush it in any way.

12 MICROWAVE COOKING TIPS
Microwave Cooking Tips
Microwave Cookware Guide
Use
Do Not Use
OVENPROOF GLASS
(treated for high intensity heat):
utility dishes, loaf dishes, pie plates, cake
plates, liquid measuring cups, casseroles
and bowls without metallic trim.
METAL CONTAINERS:
Metal shields the food from microwave energy and produces
uneven cooking. Also avoid metal skewers, thermometers, or
foil trays. Metal containers can cause arcing, which can damage
the microwave oven.
CHINA:
bowls, cups, serving plates, and platters
without metallic trim.
METAL DECORATION:
Metal-trimmed or metal-banded dinnerware, casserole dishes,
etc. The metal trim interferes with normal cooking and may
damage the oven.
PLASTIC:
Plastic wrap (as a cover)- lay the plastic
wrap loosely over the dish and press it to
the sides.
Vent plastic wrap by turning back one edge
slightly to allow excess steam to escape.
The dish should be deep enough so that
the plastic wrap will not touch the food. As
the food heats it may melt the plastic wrap
wherever the wrap touches the food.
Use plastic dishes, cups, semi-rigid freezer
containers and plastic bags only for
short cooking time. Use these with care
because the plastic may soften from
the heat of the food.
PAPER:
Paper towels, waxed paper, paper
napkins, and paper plates with no metallic
trim or design. Look for the manufacturer's
label for use in the microwave oven.
Note:
Do not use recycled paper products in the
microwave oven. They sometimes contain
impurities that cause arcing and sparking.
ALUMINUM FOIL:
Avoid large sheets of aluminum foil because they hinder
cooking and may cause harmful arcing. Use small pieces of
foil to shield poultry legs and wings. Keep ALL aluminum foil at
least 1 inch from the side walls and door of the oven.
WOOD:
Wooden bowls and boards will dry out and may split or crack
when you use them in the microwave oven. Baskets react in the
same way.
TIGHTLY COVERED COOKWARE:
Be sure to leave openings for steam to escape from covered
containers. Pierce plastic pouches of vegetables or other food
items before cooking. Tightly closed pouches could explode.
BROWN PAPER:
Avoid using brown paper bags.
They absorb too much heat and could burn.
FLAWED OR CHIPPED UTENSILS:
Any container that is cracked, flawed, or chipped may break in
the oven.
METAL TWIST TIES:
Remove metal twist ties from plastic or paper bags.
They become hot and could cause a fire.
MICROWAVE COOKING TIPS 13
Microwave-Safe Cookware
Never use metal or metal trimmed cookware
when using microwave function
Microwaves cannot penetrate metal. They will bounce
off any metal object in the oven and cause arcing, an
alarming phenomenon that resembles lightning. Most
heat resistant non-metallic cookware is safe for use
in your oven. However, some may contain materials
that render it unsuitable as microwave cookware. If
you have any doubts about a particular container,
there's a simple way to find out if it can be used in the
microwave.
Plastic Cooking Bags
Provided they are made specially for cooking, cooking
bags are microwave safe. Remember to make a
slit in the bag so that steam can escape. Never use
ordinary plastic bags for cooking in the microwave
oven, as they will melt and rupture.
Plastic Microwave Cookware
A variety of shapes and sizes of microwave cookware
are available. You may be able to use items you
already have on hand rather than investing in new
kitchen equipment.
Testing Cookware before Use
Pottery, Stoneware, and Ceramic
Place the container in question next to a glass bowl
filled with water inside the oven. Microwave at HIGH
power for 1 minute. If the water heats up but the
container remains cool to the touch, the container is
microwave-safe.
Many containers made of these materials are
microwave-safe, but test them before use.
However, if the water does not change temperature
but the container becomes warm, microwaves are
being absorbed by the container and it is not safe
for use in the microwave oven. See the following list
for tips on using common items when microwave
cooking.
Tableware
Many dishes are microwave-safe. If in doubt consult
the manufacturer's literature or perform the microwave
test. Do not put plates with painted decoration in
the oven, as the paint may contain metal and cause
arcing.
Glassware
Glassware that is heat-resistant is microwave-safe.
This includes all brands of oven tempered glass
cookware.
Do not use delicate glassware, such as tumblers or
wine glasses, as these might shatter as when heated.
Plastic Storage Containers
Use these only for quick reheating of food. Do not use
them when cooking food for long periods or at high
power levels, as the hot food will eventually warp or
melt the plastic.
Paper
Paper plates and containers are convenient and
safe to use in the microwave oven, provided that the
cooking time is short and foods to be cooked are low
in fat and moisture. Paper towels are also very useful
for wrapping foods and for lining baking trays in which
greasy foods such as bacon are cooked. In general,
avoid colored paper products as the color may run.
Some recycled paper products may contain impurities
which could cause arcing or fires when used in the
microwave.
CAUTION
• Some items with high lead or iron content are
not suitable for microwave cooking.
• Cookware should be checked to ensure that it
is suitable for use in the microwave.
Microwave Cooking Tips
Keeping an Eye on Things
Always watch your food while it cooks. The light inside
the microwave oven turns on automatically when
the oven is cooking so you can monitor the cooking
process. Directions given in recipes to elevate, stir,
and the like should be thought of as the minimum
steps recommended. If the food seems to be cooking
unevenly, simply make the necessary adjustments
you think appropriate to correct the problem.
Factors Affecting Microwave Cooking Times
Many factors affect cooking times. The temperature
of ingredients used in a recipe makes a big difference
in cooking times. For example, a cake made with
ice-cold butter, milk, and eggs will take considerably
longer to bake than one made with ingredients that
are at room temperature. Some recipes, particularly
those for bread, cake, and custards, recommend that
food be removed from the oven when they are slightly
undercooked.
This is not a mistake. When allowed to stand, usually
covered, these foods will continue to cook outside of
the oven as the heat trapped within the outer portions
of the food gradually travels inward. If the food is left
in the oven until it is cooked all the way through, the
outer portions will become overcooked or even burnt.
Practice will improve your ability to estimate both
cooking and standing times for various foods.
14 MICROWAVE COOKING TIPS
Density of Food
Light, porous food such as cakes and breads cook
more quickly than heavy, dense foods such as
roasts and casseroles. You must take care when
microwaving porous food so that the outer edges do
not become dry and brittle.
Stirring
Height of Food
Stirring is one of the most important of all microwaving
techniques. In conventional cooking, food is stirred for
the purpose of blending. Microwaved food, however,
is stirred in order to spread and redistribute heat.
Always stir from the outside towards the centre as the
outside of the food heats first.
The upper portion of tall foods, particularly roasts, will
cook more quickly than the lower portion.
Placing Thicker Portions Facing Outward
Therefore, it is wise to turn tall food several times
during cooking.
Moisture Content of Food
Because the heat generated from microwaves
causes moisture to evaporate, relatively dry food
such as roasts and some vegetables should either
be sprinkled with water prior to cooking or covered to
retain moisture.
Bone and Fat Content of Food
Bones conduct heat and fat cooks more quickly than
meat. Care must be taken when cooking bony or fatty
cuts of meat in order to prevent unevenly cooked or
overcooked meat.
Quantity of Food
The number of microwaves in your oven remains
constant regardless of how much food is being
cooked. Therefore, the more food you place in
the oven, the longer the required cooking time.
Remember to decrease cooking times by at least one
third when halving a recipe.
Shape of Food
Microwaves penetrate only about 3/4 of an inch (2
cm) into food. The interior portion of thick foods is
cooked as the heat generated on the outside travels
inward. Only the outer edge of food is cooked by
microwave energy; the rest is cooked by conduction.
The worst possible shape for a food that is to be
microwaved is a thick square.
The corners will burn long before the center is even
warm. Round thin foods and ring-shaped foods cook
most successfully in the microwave.
Covering
A cover traps heat and steam which causes food to
cook more quickly. Use a lid or microwave cling film
with a corner folded back to prevent splitting.
Covering with Parchment Paper
Parchment paper (not waxed paper) is microwave
safe. Because it makes a looser cover than a lid or
clingfilm, greaseproof paper allows the food to dry out
slightly.
Place thicker cuts or portions of meat, poultry, and
fish toward the outer edge of the baking dish so they
absorb the most microwave energy and the food
cooks more evenly.
Shielding
Strips of aluminium foil (which block microwaves)
can be placed over the corners or edges of square
and rectangular foods to prevent those portions from
overcooking. Never use too much foil and make sure
the foil is secured to the dish or it may cause arcing in
the oven especially if the foil passes too closely to the
walls of the oven during rotation.
Elevating
Thick or dense foods can be elevated so that
microwaves can be absorbed by the underside and
center of the foods.
Piercing
Foods enclosed in a shell, skin or membrane are
likely to burst in the oven unless they are pierced
prior to cooking. Such foods include yolks and whites
of eggs, clams, oysters, potatoes, and other whole
vegetables and fruits.
Testing if Cooked
Microwaves cook food quickly, so test food for
doneness frequently. Some foods are left in the
microwave until completely cooked, but most foods,
including meats and poultry, should be removed from
the oven while still slightly undercooked and allowed
to finish cooking during standing time. The internal
temperature of foods will rise between 5 °F (3 °C) and
15 °F (8 °C) during standing time.
Standing Time
Foods are often allowed to stand for 3 to 10 minutes
after being removed from the oven. Usually the foods
are covered during standing time to retain heat unless
they are supposed to be dry in texture. Standing
allows foods to finish cooking and also helps flavors
blend and develop.
MICROWAVE COOKING TIPS 15
Precautions
OPERATION
• Place the front surface of the door three inches or
more from the countertop edge to avoid accidental
tipping of the microwave oven during normal use.
This section introduces you to the basics you need
to know to operate the microwave oven. Please read
this information before using the oven.
• To program the oven, make sure you touch the
center of each pad firmly since the areas between
the pads will not activate the oven. A tone will
sound each time a pad is touched correctly. Don’t
touch several pads at once.
• Do not strike the control panel with silverware,
utensils, etc. Breakage may occur.
• Always use caution when taking cookware out
of the oven. Some dishes absorb heat from the
cooked food and may be hot. See Cookware Guide
earlier in this section for more information.
• Do not rinse containers by placing them in water
immediately after cooking. This may cause
breakage. Also, always allow the turntable to cool
before removing it from the oven.
• Never operate the oven when it is empty. Food
or water should always be in the oven during
operation to absorb the microwave energy.
• Do not use the oven to dry newspapers or clothes.
They may catch fire.
• Use thermometers that have been approved for
microwave oven cooking.
• The turntable must always be in place when you
operate the oven.
• Do not use your microwave oven to cook eggs in
the shell. Pressure can build up inside the shell,
causing it to burst.
• There are several precautions to follow when
microwaving popcorn:
− Do not pop popcorn, except in a microwave-safe
container or commercial packages designed for
microwave ovens.
− Never try to pop popcorn in a paper bag that is
not microwave-approved.
− Overcooking may result in smoke and fire.
− Do not repop unpopped kernels.
− Do not reuse popcorn bags.
− Listen while corn pops. Stop oven when popping
slows to 2-3 seconds between pops.
− Do not leave microwave unattended while
popping corn.
− Follow directions on bag.

Defrosting Tips
Weight Conversion Table
• When using Auto Defrost, the weight to be entered
is the net weight in pounds and tenths of pounds
(the weight of the food minus the container).
Most food weights are given in pounds and ounces.
If using pounds, food weights must be entered
into Auto Defrost in pounds and tenths of pounds
(decimals).
Use the following table if necessary to convert food
weights to decimals.
• Before starting, remove the metal twist-ties which
often come with frozen food bags, and replace
them with strings or elastic bands.
• Open containers such as cartons before they are
placed in the oven.

• Always slit or pierce plastic pouches or packaging.
• If food is foil wrapped, remove foil and place the
food in a suitable container.
• Always underestimate defrosting time. If
defrosted food is still icy in the center, return it to
the microwave oven for more defrosting.
• The length of defrosting time varies according to
how solidly the food is frozen.
• The shape of the package affects how quickly
food will defrost. Shallow packages will defrost
more quickly than a deep block.
• As food begins to defrost, separate the pieces
Separated pieces defrost more easily.
• Use small pieces of aluminum foil to shield parts
of food such as chicken wings, leg tips, fish tails,
or areas that start to get warm. Make sure the foil
does not touch the sides, top, or bottom of the
oven. The foil can damage the oven lining.
• For better results, let food stand after defrosting.
(For more information on standing time, see the
Microwave Cooking Tips section.)
• Turn over food during defrosting or standing time
Break apart and remove food as required.
One-Half Pound
Operating Tips
• Remove fish, shellfish, meat, and poultry from
its original wrapping paper or plastic package.
Otherwise, the wrap will hold steam and juice close
to the foods, which can cause the outer surface of
the foods to cook.
• Place foods in a shallow container or in a
microwave roasting dish to catch the drippings.
• Food should still be somewhat icy in the center
when removed from the oven.
• The length of defrosting time varies according to
how solidly the food is frozen.
• The shape of the package affects how quickly food
will defrost. Shallow packages will defrost more
quickly than a deep block.
• Depending on the shape of the food, some areas
may defrost more quickly than others.
• For best results, shape ground meat into the form
of a doughnut before freezing. When defrosting,
scrape off thawed meat when the beep sounds and
continue defrosting.
