Installation
Recommendations
.................................
Remove all packing materials both outside and inside
the oven before using the oven. The oven requires free
movement of air for proper operation. Do NOT block
air vents located by the top air grill and underneath the
oven.
Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third
(ground) prong from the power cord. Do not use an
adapter plug with this appliance. See reference pages 1
and 2 of the Installation Guide for acceptable extension
cord specifications.
Grounding Instructions
Interference Note
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 haying a grounding wire with a grounding plug. The plug
must be plugged into a 120v, 15amp. outlet that is properly installed and grounded,
Microwave ovens .generate radio frequency energy during operation, and if not installed properly may cause
interference to radio and television reception. You can
determine if this unit is causing interference by turning
it on and off while the interference is occurring. If interference occurs, it may be corrected by one or more of
the following measures:
WARNING
• clean door and sealing surfaces of the oven;
- Improper use of the grounding plug
can result in a risk of electric shock.
• reorient the television or radio receiving antenna;
Consult a qualifi_
or service technician if
the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if doubt exists as to whether the appliance is
properly grounded.
• relocate the oven with respect to the television or
radio receiver, and/or
Where standard two-prong wall receptacle is encountered, it is your personal responsibility and obligation to
have it replaced with a properly grounded three-prong
wall receptacle.
If the interference persists, you may want to consult an
experienced radio/television technician for additional
suggestions.
Automatic
• plug the oven into a different outlet so that it and the
television or radio receiver are on different circuits.
Fan Protection
Cooking appliances installed under the oven may, under
some heavy usage conditions, cause temperatures high
enough to overheat some internal parts of the microwave
oven.
Feature
........................
fan cannot be manually turned off, but it will automatically turn off when the internal parts have cooled. The
fan may stay on for up to an hour after the range and
microwave oven controls have been turned off.
To prevent overheating from taking place, the exhaust
fan is designed to automatically turn on at a low speed if
excessive temperatures occur. Should this happen, the
Microwaving
Tips .......................................................
•
Make sure all cookware used in your microwave
oven is suitable for microwaving. Most glass cooking dishes, measuring cups, custard cups, pottery or
china dinnerware, which does not have metallic trim
or glaze with metallic sheen, can be used.
•
If you are not sure if a dish is microwave-safe, use
this test: Place in the oven the dish you are testing
and a glass measuring cup filled with one cup of
water. Set the measuring cup either in or next to the
dish. Microwave 1 minute 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.
•

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.

The power levels on your microwave oven can be compared to the surface units on a range. HIGH (power
level 10) or full power is the fastest way to cook and

givesyou 100% power.
Each power level gives you microwave energy for a certain percent of time, for example, power level 7 is
microwave energy 70% of the time. Most of your cooking will be done on HIGH (Power Level 10). A lower
setting will cook more evenly and with less attention
given to stirring or rotating the food. Some foods may
have better flavor, texture or appearanceif one of the
lower settings is used. You may wish to use a lower
power level when cooking foods that have a tendency to
boil over, such as scalloped potatoes. Cooking times
will increase as the power level decreases.
