IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
READ CAREFULLY AND KEEP FOR FUTURE REFERENCE
WARNING : To prevent fire, burns, electric shock and other
warnings:
Listed below are, as with all appliances, certain rules to follow
and safeguards to assure high performance from this oven:
1. Do not use the oven for any reason
other than food preparation, such as for
drying clothes, paper, or any other
nonfood items or for sterilizing purposes.
2. Do not use the oven when empty, this
could damage the oven.
3. Do not use the oven cavity for any type
of storage, such as papers, cookbook,
cookware, etc.
4. Do not operate the oven without the
glass tray in place. Be sure it is properly
sitting on the rotating base.
5. Make sure you remove caps or lids prior
to cooking when you cook food sealed
in bottles.
6. Do not put foreign material between the
oven surface and door. It could result in
excessive leakage of microwave energy.
7. Do not use recycled paper products for
cooking. They may contain impurities
which could cause sparks and/or fires
when used during cooking.
8. Do not pop popcorn unless popped in a
microwave approved popcorn popper or
unless it's commercially packaged and
recommended especially for microwave
ovens. Microwave popped corn
produces a lower yield than
conventional popping; there will be a
number of unpopped kernels. Do not
use oil unless specified by the
manufacturer.
9. Do not cook any food surrounded by a
membrane, such as egg yolks, potatoes,
chicken livers, etc., without first piercing
them several times with a fork.
10. Do not pop popcorn longer than the
manufacturer's directions. (popping time
is generally below 3 minutes). Longer
cooking does not yield more popped
corn, it can cause scorchings and fire.
Also, the cooking tray can become too
hot to handle or may break.
11. If smoke is emitted, switch off or unplug
the appliance and keep the door closed
in order to stifle any flames.
12. When heating food in plastic or paper
containers, keep an eye on the oven
due to the possibility of ignition.
4
removed from the microwave oven is not
always present. THIS COULD RESULT IN
VERY HOT LIQUIDS SUDDENLY
BOILING OVER WHEN A SPOON OR
OTHER UTENSIL IS INSERTED INTO
THE LIQUID.
To reduce the risk of injury to persons:
a) Do not overheat the liquid.
b) Stir the liquid both before and halfway
through heating it
c) Do not use straight-sided containers with
narrow necks.
d) After heating, allow the container to stand
in the microwave oven for a short time
before removing the container.
e) Use extreme care when inserting a
spoon or other utensil into the container.
19. Children should be supervised to ensure
that they do not play with the appliance.
20. Only use utensils that are suitable for use in
microwave ovens.
21. Microwave heating of beverages can result
in delayed eruptive boiling, therefore care
must be taken when handling the container.
22. This appliance is intended to be used in
household and similar applications such as:
- staff kitchen areas in shops, offices and
other working environments;
- farm houses;
- by clients in hotels, motels and other
residential type environments;
- bed and breakfast type environments.
13. The contents of feeding bottles and baby
food jars shall be stirred or shaken and the
temperature checked before consumption,
in order to avoid burns.
14. Always test the temperature of food or drink
which has been heated in a microwave
oven before you give it to somebody,
especially to children or elderly people. This
is important because things which have
been heated in a microwave oven carry on
getting hotter even though the microwave
oven cooking has stopped.
15. Eggs in their shell and whole hard-boiled
eggs should not be heated in microwave
ovens since they may explode, even after
microwave heating has ended;
16. Keep the waveguide cover clean at all
times. Wipe the oven interior with a soft
damp cloth after each use. If you leave
grease or fat anywhere in the cavity it may
overheat, smoke or even catch fire when
next using the oven.
17. Never heat oil or fat for deep frying as you
cannot control the temperature and doing
so may lead to overheating and fire.
18. Liquids, such as water, coffee, or tea are
able to be overheated beyond the boiling
point without appearing to be boiling due to
surface tension of the liquid. Visible
bubbling or boiling when the container is

removed from the oven and covered for
additional time to allow it to finish cooking.
This frees the oven for other cooking.
* Q : Can the oven be used with the glass tray
or roller guide removed?
* A : No. Both the glass tray and roller guide must
always be used in the oven before cooking.
* Q : Why does my oven not always cook as
fast as the microwave cooking guide
says?
* A : Check your cooking guide again, to make
sure you’ve followed directions exactly ; and
to see what might cause variations in cooking
time. Cooking guide times and heat settings
are suggestions, to help prevent overcooking... the most common problem in
getting used to a microwave oven.
Variations in the size, shape and weights and
dimensions could require longer cooking
time. Use your own judgement along with the
cooking guide suggestions to check whether
the food has been properly cooked just as
you would do with a conventional cooker.
* Q : Can I open the door when the oven is
operating?
* A : The door can be opened anytime during the
cooking operation. Then microwave energy
will be instantly switched off and the time
setting will maintain until the door is closed.
* Q : Why do I have moisture in my microwave
oven after cooking?
* A : The moisture on the side of your microwave
oven is normal. It is caused by steam from
cooking food hitting the cool oven surface.
* Q : Will the microwave oven be damaged if it
operates while empty?
* A : Yes. Never run it empty.
* Q : Does microwave energy pass through the
viewing screen in the door?
* A : No. The metal screen bounces back the
energy to the oven cavity. The holes are
made to allow light to pass through. They do
not let microwave energy pass through.
* Q : Can I operate my microwave oven
without the turntable or turn the turntable
over to hold a large dish?
* A : No. If you remove or turn over the turntable,
you will get poor cooking results. Dishes
used in your oven must fit on the turntable.
* Q : Why do eggs sometimes pop?
* A : When baking or poaching eggs, the yolk may
pop due to steam build-up inside the yolk
membrane. To prevent this, simply pierce the
yolk with a toothpick before cooking. Never
cook eggs without piercing their shells.
* Q : Is it normal for the turntable to turn in
either direction?
* A : Yes. The turntable rotates clockwise or
counterclockwise, depending on the rotation
of the motor when the cooking cycle begins.
* Q : Why this standing time recommended
after the cooking operation has been
completed?
* A : Standing time is very important.
With microwave cooking, the heat is in the
food, not in the oven. Many foods build up
enough internal heat to allow the cooking
process to continue, even after the food is
removed from the oven. Standing time for
joints of meat, large vegetables and cakes is
to allow the inside to cook completely,
without overcooking the outside.
* Q : Can I pop popcorn in my microwave
oven? How do I get the best results?
* A : Yes. Pop packaged microwave popcorn
following manufacture’s guidelines. Do not
use regular paper bags. Use the “listening
test” by stopping the oven as soon as the
popping slows to a “pop” every 1 or 2
seconds. Do not repop unpopped kernels. Do
not pop popcorn in glass cookware.

BEFORE YOU CALL FOR SERVICE
Refer to following checklist, you may prevent an unnecessary service call.
* Sparking in the cavity;
1. Check utensils. Metal containers or dishes with
metal trim should not be used.
2. Check that metal skewers or foil does not touch
the interior walls.
* The oven doesn’t work :
1. Check that the power cord is securely plugged
in.
2. Check that the door is firmly closed.
3. Check that the cooking time is set.
4. Check for a blown circuit fuse or tripped main
circuit breaker in your house.
If there is still a problem, contact the service station.
A list of these stations is included in the oven.
CARE AND CLEANING
Although your oven is provided with safety features, it is important to observe the following:
1. It is important not to defeat or tamper with safety
interlocks.
i) Door(bent)
ii) Hinges and Hookes(broken or loosened)
iii) Door seals and sealing surfaces.
2. Do not place any object between the oven front
face and the door or allow residue to accumulate
on sealing surfaces. Wipe the sealing area
frequently with a mild detergent, rinse and dry.
Never use abrasive powders or pads.
4. The oven should not be adjusted or repaired by
anyone except a properly competent service
technician.
5. The oven should be cleaned regularly and any
food deposits removed;
3. When opened, the door must not be subjected to
strain, for example, a child hanging on an
opened door or any load could cause the oven to
fall forward to cause injury and also damage to
the door. Do not operate the oven if it is
damaged, until it has been repaired by a
competent service technician. It is particularly
important that the oven closes properly and that
there is no damage to the:
6. Failure to maintain the oven in a clean condition
could lead to deterioration of the surface that
could adversely affect the life of the appliance
and possibly result in a hazardous situation.

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS
Utensil Guide
Only use utensils that are suitable for use in microwave ovens.
To cook food in the microwave oven, the microwaves must be able to penetrate the food, without
being reflected or absorbed by the dish used. Care must therefore be taken choosing the utensil. If the
utensil is marked microwave-safe, you do not need to worry. The following table lists various of utensil
and indicates whether and how they should be used in a microwave oven.

USE YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN SAFELY
General Use
Do not operate the oven if door seals or sealing
surfaces are damaged; or if door is bent; or if hinges
are loose or broken.
Do not operate the oven empty. This will damage the
oven.
Do not attempt to dry clothes, newspapers or other
materials in the oven. They may catch on fire.
Do not use recycled paper products as they may
contain impurities which may cause sparks or fires.
Do not hit or strike the control panel with hard
objects. This can damage the oven.
Do not attempt to defeat or tamper with safety
interlocks.
Do not place any object between the oven front
frame and the door or allow residue to build up on
sealing surfaces. Wipe with a mild detergent, rinse
and dry. Never use abrasive powders or pads.
Do not subject the oven door to strain or weight such
as a child hanging on an open door.
This could cause the oven to fall forward resulting in
injury to you and damage to the oven.
Food
temperature to even out, stir during heating, if
necessary, and ALWAYS stir after heating. To
prevent eruptive boiling and possible scalding, you
should put a spoon or glass stick into the beverages
and stir before, during and after heating.
Do not leave the oven unattended while popping
corn.
Do not pop corn in a paper bag unless it is the
commercially prepared Microwave Popcorn product.
The kernels can overheat and ignite a brown paper
bag.
Do not put packaged Microwave Popcorn bags
directly on the oven tray. Place the package on a
microwave safe glass or ceramic plate to avoid
overheating and cracking the oven tray.
Do not exceed the Microwave Popcorn
manufacturers suggested popping time.
Longer popping does not yield more popcorn but it
can result in scorch, burn of fire. Remember, the
Popcorn bag and tray can be too hot to handle.
Remove with caution and use pot holders.
Never use your microwave oven for home canning.
The oven is not designed for proper home canning.
Improperly canned food may spoil and be dangerous
to consume.
Always use the minimum recipe cooking time. It is
better to undercook rather than overcook foods.
Undercooked foods can be returned to the oven for
more cooking. If food is overcooked, nothing can be
done.
Heat small quantities of food or foods with low
moisture carefully. These can quickly dry out, burn or
catch on fire.
Do not heat eggs in the shell. Pressure may build up
and eggs can explode.
Potatoes, apples, egg yolks and sausages are
examples of food with non-porous skins.
These must be pierced before cooking to prevent
bursting.
Do not attempt to deep fat fry in your microwave
oven.
Always allow a standing time of at least 20 seconds
after the oven has been switched off to allow the
WARNING
If you see arcing, push the STOP/CLEAR button and correct the problem.
Arcing is the microwave term for sparks in the oven.
Arcing is caused by:
• Metal or foil touching the side of the oven.
• Foil not molded to food (upturned edges act like
antennas).
• Metal, such as twist-ties, poultry pins, or gold
rimmed dishes, in the microwave.
• Recycled paper towels containing small metal
pieces being used in the microwave.

MICROWAVING PRINCIPLES
Microwave energy has been used in this country to cook and reheat food since early experiments with
RADAR in World War ll. Microwaves are present in the atmosphere all the time, both naturally and manmade
sources. Manmade sources include radar, radio, television, telecommunication links and car phones.
HOW MICROWAVES COOK FOOD
Microwave oven is a Group 2 ISM equipment in which radio frequency energy is intentionally generated and
used in the form of electromagnetic radiation for the treatment of material. This oven is a Class B equipment
suitable for use in domestic establishments and in establishments directly connected to a low voltage power
supply network which supplies buildings used for domestic purposes.
Oven Cavity
Turntable
Magnetron
Waveguide
TRANSMISSION
In a microwave oven,
electricity is converted
into microwave by the
MAGNETRON.
Then they pass through
the cooking containers to
be absorbed by the water
molecules in the food, all
foods contain water to a
more or lesser extent.
REFLECTION
ABSORPTION
The microwaves
bounce off the metal
walls and the metal
door screen.
Microwave
Water Molecule
Absorption
Vibration
The microwaves cause the water molecules to
vibrate which causes FRICTION, i.e. HEAT. This
heat then cooks the food. Microwaves are also
attracted to fat and sugar particles, and foods high
in these will cook more quickly. Microwaves can
only penetrate to a depth of 11/2 - 2 inches(4-5cm)
and as heat spreads through the food by
conduction, just as in a traditional oven, the food
cooks from the outside inwards.

COOKING TECHNIQUES
STANDING TIME
STARTING TEMPERATURE
Dense foods e.g. meat, jacket potatoes and
cakes, require standing time(inside or outside of
the oven) after cooking, to allow heat to finish
conducting to cook the center completely. Wrap
meat joints and jacket potatoes in aluminium foil
while standing. Meat joints need approx. 10-15
minutes, jacket potatoes 5 minutes. Other foods
such as plated meal, vegetables, fish etc require
2-5 minutes standing. After defrosting food,
standing time should also be allowed. If food is not
cooked after standing time, return to the oven and
cook for additional time.
The colder the food, the longer it takes to heat up.
Food from a fridge takes longer to reheat than
food at room temperature.
LIQUIDS
All liquids must be stirred before and during
heating. Water especially must be stirred before
and during heating, to avoid eruption. Do not heat
liquids that have previously been boiled. DO NOT
OVERHEAT.
TURNING & STIRRING
MOISTURE CONTENT
Some foods require stirring during cooking. Meat
and poultry should be turned after half the cooking
time.
Many fresh foods e.g. vegetables and fruit, vary in
their moisture content throughout the season,
particularly jacket potatoes. For this reason
cooking times may have to be adjusted. Dry
ingredients e.g. rice, pasta, can dry out during
storage so cooking times may differ.
ARRANGING
Individual foods e.g. chicken portions or chops,
should be placed on a dish so that the thicker
parts are towards the outside.
DENSITY
Porous airy foods heat more quickly than dense
heavy foods.
QUANTITY
Small quantities cook faster than large quantities,
also small meals will reheat more quickly than
large portions.
CLING FILM
Cling film helps keep the food moist and the
trapped steam assists in speeding up cooking
times. Pierce before cooking to allow excess
steam to escape. Always take care when
removing cling film from a dish as the build-up of
steam will be very hot.
PIERCING
The skin or membrane on some foods will cause
steam to build up during cooking. These foods
must be pierced or a strip of skin should be peeled
off before cooking to allow the steam to escape.
Eggs, potatoes, apples, sausages etc, will all need
to be pierced before cooking. DO NOT ATTEMPT
TO BOIL EGGS IN THEIR SHELLS.
SHAPE
Even shapes cook evenly. Food cooks better by
microwave when in a round container rather than
square.
COVERING
Cover foods with microwave cling film or a lid.
Cover fish, vegetables, casseroles, soups. Do not
cover cakes, sauces, jacket potatoes or pastry
items.
SPACING
Foods cook more quickly and evenly if spaced
apart. NEVER pile foods on top of each other.
24
DEFROSTING GUIDE
ᶀ Do not defrost covered meat. Covering might allow
cooking to take place. Always remove outer wrap and
tray. Use only containers that are microwave-safe.
ᶀ Begin defrosting whole poultry breast-side-down.
Begin defrosting roasts fat-side-down.
ᶀ The shape of the package alters the defrosting time.
Shallow rectangular shapes defrost more quickly than
a deep block.
ᶀ After 1/3 of the defrost time has elapsed, check the
food. Toy may wish to turn over, break apart,
rearrange or remove thawed portions of the food.
ᶀ During defrost, the oven will prompt you to turn the
over. At this point, open oven door and check the
food. Follow the techniques listed below for optimum
defrost results.
Then, close oven door, Push the START button to
complete defrosting.
ᶀ When defrosted, food should be cool, but softened in
all areas. If still slightly icy, return to microwave oven
very briefly, or let stand a few minutes. After
defrosting, allow food to stand 5-60 minutes if there
are any icy areas.
Poultry and fish may be placed under running cool
water until defrosted
➪ Turn over : Roast, ribs, whole poultry, turkey breasts,
hot dogs, sausages, steaks, or chops.
➪ Rearrange : Break apart or separate steaks, chops,
hamburger patties, ground meat, chicken or seafood
pieces, chunks of meat such as stew beef.
➪ Shield : Use small strips of aluminum foil to protect
thin areas or edges of unevenly shaped foods such as
chicken wings. To prevent arching, do not allow foil to
come within 1-inch of oven walls or door.
➪ Remove : To prevent cooking, thawed portions should
be removed from the oven at this point. This may
shorten defrost time for food weighing less than 3
lbs.(1350g).
