!! IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS !!
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should
be followed, including the following:
WARNING! - To reduce the risk of burns, electric shock, fire, injury to persons,
or exposure to excessive microwave energy:
1) Read all instructions before using the appliance.
2) Read and follow the specific “PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID POSSIBLE EXPOSURE
TO EXCESSIVE MICROWAVE ENERGY” found on page 5.
3) This appliance must be grounded. Connect only to properly grounded outlet. See
“IMPORTANT GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS” found on page 4.
4) Install or locate this appliance only in accordance with the provided installation
instructions.
5) Some products such as whole eggs and sealed containers – for example, closed
glass jars – are able to explode and should not be heated in this oven.
6) Use this appliance only for its intended use as described in the manual. Do not use
corrosive chemicals or vapors in this appliance. This type of oven is specifically
designed to heat, cook, or dry food. It is not designed for industrial or laboratory use.
7) As with any appliance, close supervision is necessary when used by children.

8) Do not operate this appliance if it has a damaged cord or plug. If it is not working
properly, or if it has been damaged or dropped.
9) This appliance should be serviced only by a qualified service personnel. Contact
nearest authorized service facility for examination, repair or adjustment.
10) Do not cover or block any openings on this appliance.
11) Do not store this appliance outdoors. Do not use this product near water – for
example, near a kitchen sink, in a wet basement, near a swimming pool, or similar
locations.
12) Do not immerse cord or plug in water.
13) Keep cord away from heated surfaces.
14) Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter.
15) When cleaning surfaces between the door and the oven that come together upon
closing, use only mild, nonabrasive soaps or detergents applied with a sponge or soft
cloth.
16) To reduce the risk of fire in the oven cavity:
a) Do not overcook food. Carefully attend appliance when paper,
plastic, or other combustible materials are placed inside the oven to
facilitate cooking.
b) Remove wire twist-ties from paper or plastic bags before placing bag
in oven.
c) If materials inside the oven ignite, keep oven door closed, turn oven
off and disconnect the power cord, or shut off power at the fuse or
circuit breaker panel.
d) Do not use the cavity for storage purposes. Do not leave paper
products, cooking utensils, or food in the cavity when not in use.
17) 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 UTENSIL IS INSERTED INTO THE LIQUID.
18) This appliance is intended for household use only.

Important 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 serviceman if the
grounding instructions are not completely
understood, or if doubt exists as to whether the
appliance is properly grounded and either:
1. 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
electrical rating of the extension cord shall be
equal to or greater than the rating of the
appliance, or
2. Do no use an extension cord. If the power
supply cord is too short, have a qualified
electrician or serviceman install an outlet near the
appliance.

How to test for a microwave-safe dish:
To determine if a dish is microwave safe, place the dish in the microwave along with a glass measuring cup filled
with one cup of water. Microwave for one minute on high and then carefully feel the dish. If it is warm, it is not
microwave safe.
Arcing – The microwave term for sparks in the oven. Caused by:
•Metal or foil touching the side of the microwave
•Upturned edges of foil not wrapped around the food
•Metals in the microwave such as twisty ties, meat pins or metal rimmed dishes
•Recycled paper towels in the microwave that contain small flecks of metal
Materials for use in microwave
To avoid arcing and other hazards, follow these instructions for the use of safe materials in the microwave.
Browning dish
Follow manufacturer’s instructions. The bottom of browning dish must be at least
3/16 inch (0.5 cm) above the turntable. Incorrect usage may cause the turntable to
break.
Dinnerware
Microwave-safe only. Follow manufacturer’s instructions. Do not use cracked or
chipped dishes.
Glassware
Heat-resistant oven glassware only. Make sure there is no metallic trim. Do not use
cracked or chipped dishes.

steam to escape.
Paper plates/cups
Use for short-term cooking/warming only. Do not leave oven unattended while
cooking.
Paper towels
Use to cover food for reheating and absorbing fat. Use with supervision for short-term
cooking only.

Plastic
Microwave-safe only. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Boiling bags and tightly
closed plastic bags should be slit, pierced or vented as directed by package.
Plastic wrap
Microwave-safe only. Use to cover food during cooking to retain moisture. Do not
allow plastic wrap to touch food. Due to various manufacturers you may receive
varying performance results when using a bacon tray.
Thermometers

Setting up your microwave
Installation:
1) Remove all packing
materials and accessories.
Examine the oven for any
damage such as dents or
broken door. Do not install if
oven is damaged.
2) Select a level surface that
provides enough open space
for ventilation. Allow for 3
inches of open space next to
the sides and back of the
microwave. Allow for 12
inches of open space above
the microwave, and do not
remove the legs from the
bottom of the microwave.
WARNING: Do not remove
MICA plate located on right hand
side of inside of microwave.
3) Place the microwave as
far away as possible from
radios and televisions.
Microwave may cause
interference to these
appliances.
4) Plug the microwave into a
standard household outlet.
Check the rating label of the
microwave to ensure the
voltage and frequency are
compatible with the outlet.
5) Do not install microwave
over a range cook top or
other heat-producing
appliance. Heat can damage
the microwave and void the
warranty.
