Information You Need To Know
About your oven
This Use and Care Guide is valuable: read it
carefully and always save it for reference.
on and off. It is normal for the exterior of the oven
to be warm to the touch when cooking or reheating.
A good microwave cookbook is a valuable asset.
Check it for microwave cooking principles,
techniques, hints and recipes.
Condensation is a normal part of microwave
cooking. Room humidity and the moisture in
food will influence the amount of moisture that
condenses in the oven. Generally, covered foods
will not cause as much condensation as uncovered
ones. Ventilation openings must not be blocked.
NEVER use the Microwave Oven without the
turntable and support nor turn the turntable
over so that a large dish could be placed in the
oven. The turntable will turn both clockwise and
counterclockwise.
ALWAYS have food in the Microwave Oven when
it is on to absorb the microwave energy.
When using the Microwave Oven at power levels
below 100%, you may hear the magnetron cycling
The Microwave Oven is for food preparation only. It
should not be used to dry clothes or newspapers.
Your Microwave Oven is rated 900 watts by
using the IEC Test Procedure. In using recipes or
package directions, check food a minute or two
before the minimum time and add time accordingly.
About safety
• Check foods to see that they are cooked to
the United States Department of Agriculture’s
recommended temperatures.

Food
• Avoid steam burns by directing steam away
from the face and hands. Slowly lift the farthest
edge of a dish’s covering and carefully open
popcorn and oven cooking bags away from the
face.
160˚F
For fresh pork, ground meat, boneless
white poultry, fish, seafood, egg
dishes and frozen prepared food.
• Stay near the oven while it’s in use and check
cooking progress frequently so that there is no
chance of overcooking food.
165˚F
F o r l e f t o v e r, r e a d y - t o - r e h e a t
refrigerated, and deli and carry-out
“fresh” food.
• NEVER use the cavity for storing cookbooks or
other items.
170˚F
White meat of poultry.
180˚F
Dark meat of poultry.
To test for doneness, insert a meat thermometer
in a thick or dense area away from fat or bone.
Never leave the thermometer in the food during
cooking, unless it is approved for microwave use.
• ALWAYS use potholders to prevent burns when
handling utensils that are in contact with hot
food. Enough heat from the food can transfer
through utensils to cause skin burns.
• Select, store and handle food carefully to
preserve its high quality and minimize the
spread of foodborne bacteria.
• Keep waveguide cover clean. Food residue can
cause arcing and/or fires.
• Use care when removing items from the oven
so that the utensil, your clothes or accessories
do not touch the safety door latches.
• Keep aluminum foil used for shielding at least
1 inch away from walls, ceiling and door.

Information You Need To Know
About microwave cooking
• Arrange food carefully. Place thickest areas
towards outside of dish.
• Watch cooking time. Cook for the shortest
amount of time indicated and add more as
needed. Food severely overcooked can smoke
or ignite.
• Cover foods while cooking. Check recipe or
cookbook for suggestions: paper towels, wax
paper, microwave plastic wrap or a lid. Covers
prevent spattering and help foods to cook
evenly.
• Shield with small flat pieces of aluminum foil
any thin areas of meat or poultry to prevent
overcooking before dense, thick areas are
cooked thoroughly.
• Stir foods from outside to center of dish once or
twice during cooking, if possible.
• Turn foods over once during microwaving to
speed cooking of such foods as chicken and
•
•
•
•
hamburgers. Large items like roasts must be
turned over at least once.
Rearrange foods such as meatballs halfway
through cooking both from top to bottom and
from the center of the dish to the outside.
Add standing time. Remove food from oven
and stir, if possible. Cover for standing time
which allows the food to finish cooking without
overcooking.
Check for doneness. Look for signs indicating
that cooking temperatures have been reached.
Doneness signs include:
- Food steams throughout, not just at edge.
- Center bottom of dish is very hot to the
touch.
- Poultry thigh joints move easily.
- Meat and poultry show no pinkness.
- Fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.
About food
Food
Do
Don't
Eggs, sausages, nuts, seeds,
fruits &
vegetables
• Puncture egg yolks before cooking to
prevent “explosion”.
• Cook eggs in shells.
• Pierce skins of potatoes, apples, squash,
hot dogs and sausages so that steam
escapes.
• Dry nuts or seeds in shells.
Popcorn
• Use specially bagged popcorn for
microwave cooking.
• Pop popcorn in regular brown bags
or glass bowls.
• Listen while popping corn for the
popping to slow to 1 or 2 seconds or use
special popcorn pad.
• Exceed maximum time on popcorn
package.
• Transfer baby food to small dish and heat
carefully, stirring often. Check temperature
before serving.
• Heat disposable bottles.
Baby food
• Put nipples on bottles after heating and
shake thoroughly. “Wrist” test before
feeding.
General
• Reheat whole eggs.
• Heat bottles with nipples on.
• Heat baby food in original jars.
• Cut baked goods with filling after heating
to release steam and avoid burns.
• Heat or cook in closed glass jars or air
tight containers.
• Stir liquids briskly before and after heating
to avoid “eruption”.
• Can in the microwave as harmful
bacteria may not be destroyed.
• Use deep bowl, when cooking liquids or
cereals, to prevent boilovers.
• Deep fat fry.
• Dry wood, gourds, herbs or wet papers.
Information You Need To Know
About utensils and coverings
It is not necessary to buy all new cookware.
Many pieces already in your kitchen can be used
successfully in your new Microwave Oven. Make
sure the utensil does not touch the interior walls
during cooking.
Use these utensils for safe microwave cooking
and reheating:
• glass ceramic (Pyroceram®),
such as Corningware®.
• heat-resistant glass (Pyrex®)
• microwave-safe plastics
• paper plates
• microwave-safe pottery,
stoneware and porcelain
• browning dish (Do not exceed
recommended preheating time. Follow
manufacturer's directions.)
These items can be used for short time
reheating of foods that have little fat or sugar
in them:
• wood, straw, wicker
DO NOT USE
• metal pans and bakeware
• dishes with metallic trim
• non-heat-resistant glass
• non-microwave-safe plastics (margarine tubs)
• recycled paper products
• brown paper bags
• food storage bags
• metal twist-ties
Should you wish to check if a dish is safe for
microwaving, place the empty dish in the oven and
microwave on HIGH for 30 seconds. A dish which
becomes very hot should not be used.
The following coverings are ideal:
• Paper towels are good for covering foods for
reheating and absorbing fat while cooking
bacon.
• Wax paper can be used for cooking and
reheating.
• Plastic wrap that is specially marked for
microwave use can be used for cooking and
reheating. DO NOT allow plastic wrap to touch
food. Vent so steam can escape.
• Lids that are microwave-safe are a good choice
because heat is kept near the food to hasten
cooking.
• Oven cooking bags are good for large meats or
foods that need tenderizing. DO NOT use metal
twist ties. Remember to slit bag so steam can
escape.
How to use aluminum foil in your Microwave
Oven:
• Small flat pieces of aluminum foil placed
smoothly on the food can be used to shield
areas that are either defrosting or cooking too
quickly.
• Foil should not come closer than one inch to
any surface of the oven.
Should you have questions about utensils or
coverings, check a good microwave cookbook or
follow recipe suggestions.
Accessories
There are many microwave accessories available
for purchase. Evaluate carefully before you
purchase so that they meet your needs. A
microwave-safe thermometer will assist you in
determining correct doneness and assure you that
foods have been cooked to safe temperatures.
Electrolux is not responsible for any damage to the
oven when accessories are used.

pad after pressing either power level + or -.
If the food that you wish to defrost is not listed on
the Auto Defrost chart or is above or below the
limits in the “Amount” column on the Defrost chart ,
you need to defrost manually.
You can defrost any frozen food, either raw or
previously cooked, by using Power level 30. Follow
the exact procedure found under Time cooking.
Estimate defrosting time and lower your power
level to 30%.
For either raw or previously cooked frozen food
the rule of thumb is approximately 5 minutes per
pound. For example, defrost 5 minutes for 1 pound
of frozen spaghetti sauce.
Always stop the oven periodically to remove or
separate the portions that are defrosted. If food is
not defrosted at the end of the estimated defrosting
time, program the oven in 1 minute increments on
power level 30 until totally defrosted.
When using plastic containers from the freezer,
defrost only long enough to remove from the plastic
in order to place in a microwave-safe dish.
Setting Microwave Controls
Sensor Modes
The sensor is a semi-conductor device that detects
the vapor (moisture and humidity) emitted from the
food as it heats. The sensor adjusts the cooking
times and power level for various foods and
quantities.
Using Sensor Modes:
1. After oven is plugged in, wait 2 minutes before
using Sensor Modes.
2. Be sure the exterior of the cooking container
and the interior of the oven are dry. Wipe off
any moisture with a dry cloth or paper towel.
3. The oven works with foods at normal storage
temperature. For example, popcorn would be at
room temperature.
4. Any Sensor Modes selection can be
programmed with More or less time adjustment.
5. More or less food than the quantity listed in the
chart should be cooked following the guidelines
in any microwave cookbook.
6. During the first part of any sensor cooking or
reheating, SENSING will appear on the display.
Do not open the oven door during this part of
the cycle. The measurement of vapor will be
interrupted. If this occurs, an error message
will appear. To continue cooking, press the
CANCEL/off pad and cook manually.
When the sensor detects the vapor emitted
from the food, remainder of cooking time will
appear. Door may be opened when remaining
cooking time appears on the display. At this
time, you may stir or season food, as desired.
7. Except for popcorn, if the sensor does not
detect vapor properly when cooking other
foods, ERROR will be displayed.
8. Check food for temperature after cooking. If
additional time is needed, continue to cook
manually.
9. Each food has a cooking hint. Touch help
guide pad when the HELP indicator is lighted in
the display.
Covering Foods:
Some foods cook better when covered. Use the
cover recommended in the food charts.
1. Casserole lid.
2. Plastic wrap: Use plastic wrap recommended for
microwave cooking. Cover dish loosely; allow
approximately 1/2 inch to remain uncovered to
allow steam to escape. Plastic wrap should not
touch food.
3. Wax paper: Cover dish completely; fold excess
wrap under dish to secure. If dish is wider than
paper, overlap two pieces at least one inch
to cover.
Be careful when removing any covering to allow
steam to escape away from you.
Quick Sensor
You can cook or reheat many foods by touching
a Quick Sensor pad (fresh veggies, frozen
veggies, popcorn, baked potato and sensor
reheat). You don't need to calculate cooking time
or power level.
• Suppose you want to pop a 3.5 oz. bag of
popcorn.

About the probe function
Checking the internal temperature of your food is
the most effective way of insuring that your food
has been properly cooked. When cooking meat
such as roasts, hams or poultry you can use the
probe to check the internal temperature without any
guesswork.
• Use only the probe supplied with your
appliance; any other may result in damage to
the probe or the appliance.
Your oven will automatically change from cooking
to keep warm once the probe has reached the set
temperature.
• Be sure the probe is fully inserted into the
probe receptacle. The probe will not work
properly until correctly connected.
The following temperature settings apply to the
probe function:
• Handle the probe carefully when inserting and
removing it from the food and the receptacle.
• Default: 170°F/76°C
• Minimum: 130°F / 54°C
• Maximum: 210°F / 98°C
• Do not use tongs to pull the cable when
inserting or removing it from the food or the
receptacle.
IMPORTANT
• Defrost your food completely before inserting
the probe to avoid damaging probe.
Setting the probe
• Never leave or store the probe inside the
oven when not in use.
Proper probe placement
• Always insert the probe so that the tip rests in
the center of the thickest part of the meat. Do
not allow the probe to touch bone, fat, gristle or
the pan.
• To prevent the possibility of burns, carefully
unplug the probe using a pot holder.
• For bone-in ham or lamb, insert the probe into
the center of the lowest large muscle or joint.
For dishes such as meat loaf or casseroles,
insert the probe into the center of the food. To
find the center of the food visually measure with
the probe -Fig. 3-. When cooking fish, insert the
probe just above the gill.
• For whole poultry or turkey, insert the probe into
the thickest part of the inner thigh, below the leg
-Fig. 1-.

About slow cook
Setting slow cook
The slow cook feature may be used to cook foods
more slowly at lower oven temperatures. The
cooking results will be like that of a Slow Cooker or
Crock-Pot. This feature is ideal for roasting beef,
pork & poultry. Slow cooking meats may result in
the exterior of meats becoming dark but not burnt;
this is normal. Slow cook may only be set in the
lower oven.

About Perfect Turkey™
Setting Perfect Turkey™
Heated air circulates around the turkey from all
sides, sealing in juices and flavors. Poultry cooked
with this feature are crispy brown on the outside
while staying moist on the inside.
See the example below to use perfect turkey at the
default setting of 325°F and the probe at the default
setting of 180°F (82°C).
Perfect turkey combines a cook cycle with the
convection fan. The probe is used to monitor the
exact internal temperature of the turkey while
cooking. Once the turkey has reached the set
temperature, the oven will stop cooking and
change to keep warm.
Before setting the perfect turkey feature, or if you
would like to change the probe target temperature,
be sure to carefully read and follow setting the
probe instructions.
NOTE
Example
• You may press CANCEL any time when

About defrost
About dehydrate
Use the defrost feature to thaw small portions of
delicate items such as cream cakes, frozen cream
pies and cheesecake at room temperature. While
in the defrost mode, the convection fan will operate
to circulate room temperature air around the food
slowly, accelerating the natural defrosting of the
food without using heat.
The dehydrate feature dries with heat from the
elements. The heat is circulated throughout the
oven by the convection fan. Use dehydrate to dry
and/or preserve foods such as fruits, vegetables,
herbs and very thin slices of meat. The Convection
fan may operate while dehydrating.
The following temperature settings apply to the
dehydrate feature:

Sabbath mode
The lower oven of this appliance provides special
settings for use when observing the Jewish
Sabbath/Holidays. This mode will turn off all
audible tones or visual display changes normally
provided by the oven control. BAKE is the only
cooking features available while in the Sabbath
mode.
You must first set the BAKE feature and
temperature(s) needed for the lower oven, the

outside of the temperature range, the oven will
default to the nearest available temperature. Try to
set the desired oven temperature again.
Should a power failure or interruption occur during
the Sabbath/Holidays, the appliance will shut OFF.
When power is restored the appliance will not turn
back on automatically to the original BAKE feature
settings. SF will appear in all the control display
panels indicating a Sabbath mode failure. - Figs. 1After a power failure, the food may be safely
removed from the oven while still in the Sabbath
mode.
If the oven interior lights are needed, be sure to
activate them prior to setting the Sabbath mode.
Once the oven light is turned ON and the Sabbath
mode is active, the oven light will remain on until
the Sabbath mode is turned off and the oven lights
are turned off. The oven door will not activate the
oven interior lights when the oven door is opened
or closed.

Lower Oven Self-Clean
Before starting self-clean
A self-cleaning oven automatically cleans with high
temperatures that are well above those used for
normal cooking. The self-clean feature eliminates
soils completely or reduces them to a fine
powdered ash that you can later easily wipe away
with a damp cloth.
Adhere to the following precautions when
running the self-clean cycle:
During the self-clean cycle, the outside of the
appliance can become very hot to the touch.
DO NOT leave small children unattended near
the appliance.
• Do not use oven cleaners or protective coatings
in or around the oven interior.
• Do not clean the oven door gasket. The woven
material of the oven door gasket is essential for
a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub,
damage or remove the gasket. -Fig. 1• Do not use any cleaning materials on the door
gasket. Leaving chemical residue can damage
the door gasket.
• DO NOT force the oven door open. The
automatic door locking system can be damaged.
• Remove the broiler pan, insert, all utensils
and any aluminum foil. These items cannot
withstand high cleaning temperatures.
• All oven racks and supports MUST be removed.
If they are left in while attempting to set a selfclean cycle, the display will show REMOVE
RACKS -Fig. 2. The oven control will not start
a self-clean cycle without first removing all the
oven racks and supports.
• DO NOT line the oven walls, oven racks,
bottom or any other part of the range with
aluminum foil. Doing so will stop heat
distribution, produce poor baking results
and cause permanent damage to the oven
interior (aluminum foil will melt to the interior
surface of the oven).
• Use caution when opening the door after
the self-clean cycle is finished. The oven
may still be VERY HOT.
• The health of some birds is extremely
sensitive to the fumes given off during the
self-cleaning cycle of any range. Move birds
to another well-ventilated room.
• Remove any excessive spillovers in the oven
cavity before starting a self-clean cycle. To
clean, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Large
spillovers can cause heavy smoke or fire when
subjected to high temperatures.
• Clean any soil from the oven frame, the door
liner outside the oven door gasket and the small
area at the front center of the oven bottom with
soap and water. These areas heat sufficiently to
burn soil on.
Fig. 1
• Do not allow food spills with a high sugar or acid
content (such as milk, tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit
juices or pie filling) to remain on the porcelain
surface, they may leave a dull spot even after
cleaning.
Fig. 2
Lower Oven Self-Clean
Setting self-clean
Setting delayed self-clean
The clean feature provides 3 different choices for
self-cleaning the lower oven. Set the clean for lite
(2 hrs), med (3 hrs) or heavy soils (4 hrs). The
example below shows setting the lower oven for
self-clean to begin immediately using a medium (3
hour) setting:
You may wish to set your appliance to perform a
self-clean cycle sometime later (up to 12 hours
later). The END TIME key will determine when the
cleaning will stop.
Example
Step
1. Remove racks and supports
and press LOWER OVEN
2. Press CLEAN
3. Select MED or
select lite or heavy
4. Press START
Press
You will need to set the END TIME out far enough
to allow for the type of clean cycle you choose
(2-3-4 hours). Remember to add 30-40 additional
minutes for the oven to cool enough and the oven
door to unlock.
The example below shows setting the lower oven
for a lite (2 hour) self-clean cycle to end at 8:00
o’clock:
Example
Step
1. Remove racks and
press LOWER OVEN
2. Press CLEAN
After pressing start, the motorized oven door latch
will automatically lock the door. The DOOR lock
icon will flash (Fig. 1). Once the door has locked
the DOOR lock icon will remain on through the
entire self-clean cycle.
After self-clean, the oven may take about 30-40
minutes to cool and unlock. A Hot message (Fig.
2) will display during this period. During cooling the
DOOR lock icon will flash and disappear indicating
that the door has unlocked.
3. Select LITE
4. Press COOK OPTIONS
5. Press END TIME
IMPORTANT
• A self-clean cycle will not start if the appliance
has the CONTROL LOCK turned on.
• If a self-clean cycle was started but did not
finish due to a power failure, your oven may
not be completely cleaned. After power
has been restored and the oven door has
unlocked, set for another self-clean if needed.

Lower Oven Care and Cleaning
Special door care instructions Changing lower oven lights
IMPORTANT
Most oven doors contain glass that can
break. Read the following recommendations:
•
Do not close the oven door until all the interior
oven racks are fully inserted and retracted to
the back of the oven.
•
Do not hit the glass with pots, pans, or any
other object. The oven door glass may break or
even break at a later time unexpectedly.
•
Scratching, hitting, jarring or stressing the oven
door glass may weaken its structure causing
an increased risk of breakage at a later time.
•
You may use a glass cleaner on the outside
of the oven door glass. Do not spray or allow
water or the cleaner to enter or drip down into
the oven door vents. Spray cleaner on cloth
first and then wipe the oven door clean.
•
Do not use strong oven cleaners, powders or
any harsh abrasive cleaning materials on the
outside of the oven door or glass.
•
Never clean the oven door gasket. The oven
door gasket should always clean during the
Self-clean cycle.
• Be sure the range is unplugged and all parts
are COOL before replacing oven light. Wear
a leather-faced glove for protection against
possible broken glass or burns.
The lower oven light bulbs are located on both
side of the oven cavity and both are covered with
a glass shield. The glass shield must be in place
whenever the oven is in use.
Replacing the lower oven interior light bulbs:
1. Turn electrical power off at the main source or
unplug the appliance.
2. Remove lower oven interior light shield as
illustrated below.
3. Replace bulb with a new T-4 type 40 Watt
Halogen appliance bulb. Please note: do not
allow your fingers to touch the new bulb when
replacing. This will shorten the life of the new
bulb. Use a paper towel to cover the new bulb
when installing.
4. Replace glass shield over bulb.
5. Turn power back on again at the main source
(or plug the appliance back in).
6. The clock will then need to be reset.
Lift backside
of glass shield
and remove it.

Microwave Care and Cleaning
Disconnect the power cord before cleaning or leave the door open to inactivate the
oven during cleaning.
Exterior
Waveguide Cover
Clean the outside with mild soap and water; rinse and
dry with a soft cloth. Do not use any type of household
or abrasive cleaner.
The waveguide cover is made from mica so requires
special care. Keep the waveguide cover clean to
assure good oven performance. Carefully wipe with a
damp cloth any food spatters from the surface of the
cover immediately after they occur. Built-up splashes
may overheat and cause smoke or possibly catch fire.
Do not remove the waveguide cover.
Door
Wipe the window on both sides with a damp cloth
to remove any spills or spatters. Metal parts will be
easier to maintain if wiped frequently with a damp
cloth. Avoid the use of spray and other harsh cleaners
as they may stain, streak or dull the door surface.
Touch Control Panel
Care should be taken in cleaning the touch control
panel. If the control panel becomes soiled, open the
Microwave Oven door before cleaning. Wipe the
panel with a cloth dampened slightly with water only.
Dry with a soft cloth. Do not scrub or use any sort
of chemical cleaners. Close door and touch STOP/
CLEAR.
Interior
Cleaning is easy because little heat is generated to
the interior surfaces; therefore, there is no baking
and setting of spills or spattering. To clean the interior
surfaces, wipe with a soft cloth and warm water. DO
NOT USE ABRASIVE OR HARSH CLEANERS OR
SCOURING PADS. For heavier soil, use baking soda
or a mild soap; rinse thoroughly with hot water. The
rack can be cleaned with hot soapy water, rinsed and
dried. Never spray oven cleaners directly onto any part of the microwave oven.
Odor Removal
Occasionally, a cooking odor may remain in the oven.
To remove, combine 1 cup water, grated peel and
juice of 1 lemon and several whole cloves in a 2-cup
glass measuring cup. Boil for several minutes using
100% power. Allow to set in oven until cool. Wipe
interior with a soft cloth.
Turntable/Turntable Support/Racks
The turntable, turntable support and racks can be
removed for easy cleaning. Wash them in mild,
sudsy water; for stubborn stains use a mild cleanser
and a non-abrasive scouring sponge. They are also
dishwasher-proof. Use top rack of dishwasher for
turntable support.
Foods with high acidity, such as tomatoes or lemons,
will cause the porcelain enamel turntable to discolor.
Do not cook highly acidic foods directly on the turntable; if spills occur, wipe up immediately.
The turntable motor shaft is not sealed, so excess
water or spills should not be allowed to stand in this
area.

Solutions to Common Oven Problems
Before you call
Problem
Solution
Soil not completely removed after
self-cleaning cycle is completed
• Failure to clean bottom, from top of oven, frame of
oven or door area outside oven seal. These areas
are not in the self-cleaning area, but get hot enough
to burn on residue. Clean these areas before the
self-cleaning cycle is started. Burned on residue can
be cleaned with a stiff nylon brush and water or a
nylon scrubber. Be careful not to damage the oven
gasket.
• Excessive spillovers in oven. Set the self-clean cycle
for longer cleaning time.
Oven smokes excessively during
broiling
• Control not set properly. Follow broiling instructions
under Setting Oven Controls.
• Meat too close to the broil element. Reposition the
broil rack to provide proper clearance between the
meat & the element. Preheat the broil element for
searing.
• Meat not properly prepared. Remove excess fat from
meat. Cut remaining fatty edges to prevent curling,
but do not cut into lean.
• Insert on broiler pan wrong side up & grease not
draining. Always place grid on the broiler pan with
ribs up & slots down to allow grease to drip into pan
(some models).
• Grease has built up on oven surfaces. Regular
cleaning is necessary when broiling frequently. Old
grease or food spatters cause excessive smoking.
• Oven control has detected a fault or error condition.
Press CANCEL to clear the display & stop beeping.
Try the bake or broil feature again. If the F code error
repeats, remove power supply to appliance, wait
5 minutes and then repower the appliance and set
clock for the time of day. Try the bake or broil feature
again. If the fault recurs, record fault and call for
service.
• Many factors affect baking results. Make sure the
proper oven rack position is used. Center food in the
oven and space pans to allow air to circulate. Allow
the oven to preheat to the set temperature before
placing food in the oven. Try adjusting the recipe’s
recommended temperature or baking time. If you
feel the oven is too hot or cool, see “Adjusting Oven
Temperature” in the Setting Your Preferences
section of this Use & Care Guide.
