Installation
A. Circwits |
For safe typurposes this oven must be plugged into a 15 or 20 amp circuit. NO OTHER electrical appliances ir
lighting circuits should be on the same line as the oven. If in doubt, consult a licensed electrician.
B. Voltagt Warning
The voltage used at the wall receptacle must be the same as specified on the oven nameplate located on the
back or onthe 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. In case the microwave oven
does not perform normally, in spite of proper voltage remove and reinsert the plug in the wall receptacle.
C. Placement of the oven
This 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. D» not place the
oven above a gas or electric range. Free air flow around the oven is important. Allow at least 4 inchas of space at
the top, sides and back of the oven for proper ventilation.
D. Do not block the air vents
All air vents should be kept clear during cooking. If the air vents are covered during oven operation the oven may
overheat. In this case, a sensitive thermal safety device automatically turns the oven off. The oven will be
inoperable until it has cooled sufficiently.

Cookware guide
Most heat-resistant, non-metallic cookware is safe for use in your microwave oven. To test cookware before
using, however, follow these steps: ' ВЕ a.
1. Place the empty cookware in the microwave oven. © |
2. Measure 1 cup water in a glass measuring cup and place it in the oven beside the cookware.
3. Microwave on 100% power (High) for 1 minute. If the dish is warm, it should not be used for microwave
cooking.
USE
Ovenproof glass | ВЕ
Glass treated for use in high-density heat includes utility dishes, bread dishes, pie plates, cake plates, liquid
measuring cups, casseroles and bowls without metallic trim.
| | |
China a
Bowls, cups, serving plates and platters without metallic trim can be used in your oven.
Plastic | I
When using plastic wrap as a cover, make sure the dish is deep enough so the plastic does not touch the food.
As the food heats, it may melt the plastic wherever the plastic touches the food. |
Place plastic wrap loosely over the top of the dish and secure it by pressing the wrap to the sides of the dish. Vent
by turning back one corner of the plastic wrap. This will allow the steam to escape. о
Use plastic dishes, cups, semi-rigid freezer containers and plastic bags only for short time cooking. Use them with
care because the plastic may soften from the heat of the food. |
Refer to the manufacturer's label for use of any paper product in the microwave oven.
DO NOT USE
Metal utensils
Metal shields food from microwave energy and produces uneven cooking. Avoid the use of metal skewers,
thermometers or foil trays. Metal utensils can cause arching which is a discharge of electrical purent Arcing can
damage your oven. | ; :
a
Metal decoration Do
Do not use metal trimmed or metal banded dinnerware, casserole or serving dishes etc.
Aluminum foil |
Avoid large sheets of aluminum foil because it hinders cooking and may cause arching. |
Use only small pieces of foil to shield poultry legs and wings. Keep all aluminum foil at least 1 inch away from the
walls and door of the oven. | 1
Wood
Wooden bowls, boards and baskets will dry out and may split or crack if used in your microwave oven.
1
|
Tightly closed containers | |
Tightly closed containers can explode. Be sure to leave an opening for steam to escape from covered cookware.
Brown paper
Avoid using brown paper bags. They absorb heat and could burn.
Metal twist ties
Always remove metal twist ties as they can become hot and cause a fire.

Tips for microwave cooking |
Brownirsg | Do
Meat and poultry with high fat content that are cooked for 10 to 15 minutes or longer will brown lightly. Foods
cooked a shorter time can be brushed with a browning agent such as Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce or
barbeque sauce. *
|
| |
Covering
A cover traps heat and steam and causes the food to cook more quickly. Use a lid or microwave-safe plastic wrap
with one corner folded back to vent the excess steam. Lids on glass casseroles can become hot during cooking.
Handle carefully. Waxed paper will prevent the food from splattering in the oven and help retain heat. When
warming bread items, use waxed paper, napkins or paper towels. To absorb extra, wrap sandwiched and fatty
foods in paper towels. |
Spacing
Arrange individual foods such as'baked potatoes, cupcakes and hors d'oeuvres in a circle and at least 1 inch
apart. This will help the food cook more evenly. |
Stirring |
Stirring blends flavors and redistributes the heat in foods. Always stir from the outside toward the center of the
dish. Food at the outside of the dish heats first. |
|,
|
Turning
Larger foods such as roasts and whole poultry should be turned so that the top and bottom cook evenly. Also turn
over chicken pieces and chops.
Arrangement |
Do not stack food. Arrange in a single layer in the dish for more even cooking. Because dense foods cook more
slowly, place thicker portions of meat, pouitry, fish and vegetables toward the outside of the dish.
Testing for doneness | |
Because food cooks quickly in a microwave oven, you need to test frequently for doneness. |
Standing time |
Food often needs to stand from 2 to 15 minutes after you remove it from the oven. Usually, you need to cover
food during standing tie to retain heat. Remove most foods when they are slightly undercooked and they will finish
cooking during standing time. The: internal temperature of foof will rise about 10° during standing time. |
Shielding
To prevent some portions of rectangular or square dished from overcooking, you may need to shield them with
small strips of aluminum foil to block the microwaves. Yu can also cover poultry legs and wing tips wit small
pieces of foil to keep them from overcooking. Always keep foil at least 1 inch from oven walls to prevent arcing.
Piercing
Pierce the shell, skin or membrane of foods before cooking to prevent them from bursting. Foods that require
piercing include the yolks and whites of eggs, hot dogs, clams, oysters and whole vegetables such as potatoes
and squash. |

Precautions | 1
e Place the front surface of the door 3 inches or more from the countertop edge to avoid accidental tipping
of the microwave oven during normal use.
e 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.
e Do not strike the control panel with silverware, utensils, etc. Breakage may occur.
e Always use caution when taking the cooking utensils 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.
e Do not rinse cooking utensils 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. |
e 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 to cook eggs in the shell. Pressure can build up inside the shell and cause
the eggs to burst.
There are several precautions to follow when microwaving popcorn: |
e 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 oven approved.
- Overcooking may result in smoke and fire. р
Do not re-pop un-popped kernels. do
Do not reuse popcorn bags. |
Listen while corn bops. Stop oven when popping slows to 2 — 3 seconds between pops.
Do not leave microwave unattended while popping corn. |
Follow directions on bag. a
Cleaning |
NOTE: Before cleaning the oven, unplug the power cord. If this is impossible, open the oven door to preven an
accidental oven start.
Interior
Wipe the oven inside and outside with a soft cloth and a mild detergent solution. Then rinse and wipe dry. This
should be done weekly or more often, if needed. Never use cleaning powders or rough cleaning pads. Excessive
oil splatters on the inside top will be difficult to remove if left for many days. Wipe splatters with a wet paper towel
especially after cooking chicken or bacon.
Removable parts | | |
e The turntable and rotating ring are removable. They should be hand washed in warm (not hot) water with
a mild detergent and a soft cloth. Once they are clean, rinse well and dry with a soft cloth. |
e Never use cleaning powders, steel wool or rough cleaning pads. |
The turntable may be cleaned at the sink. Be careful not to chip or scratch the edges|as this may cause
the turntable to break during use. | |
e The rotating ring should be cleaned regularly
Door
For best performance and safety, the inner door panel and the oven front frame should be free of food or grease
buildup. Wipe often with a mild detergent, then rinse and wipe dry. Never use cleaning powders or rough cleaning
pads. |
|
Make sure the turntable and rotating ring are in the right position. a

Answer |
There may be several reasons why the oven light is not on.
Have you: Set a cooking time? |
Touched “Start”? |
Steam is normally produced during cooking. The microwave oven has
been designed to vent this steam.
Yes. Never operate the oven empty or without the glass turntable.
No. The metal screen bounces the energy back to the oven cavity.
The holes (or ports) allow only light to pass through. They do not let
microwave energy pass through.
That key does not work in the oven's current mode of operation.
|
Like any other cooking appliance, it is possible to is overcook
food to the point that the food creates smoke and even possibly |
cause a fire and damage to the inside of the oven. It is always best to
be near the microwave oven while you are cooking.
The microcomputer controlling your oven may temporarily become
scrambled and fail to function as programmed when you plug it in
for the first time or when power resumes after a power interruption.
Unplug the oven from the 120 volt household outlet, wait 1 0 seconds
and then plug it back in to reset the microcomputer. Ш
