IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

!WARNING

To avoid risk of fire in the oven cavity:

a.DO NOT overcook food. Carefully attend oven when paper, plastic, or other combustible materials are placed inside the oven to facilitate cooking.

b.Remove wire twist-tiesfrom 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. DO NOT leave paper products, cooking utensils, or food in the cavity when not in use.

!WARNING

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 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:

i)Do not overheat the liquid.

ii)Stir the liquid both before and halfway through heating it.

iii)Do not use straight-sidedcontainers with narrow necks.

iv)After heating, allow the container to stand in the microwave oven for a short time before removing the container.

v)Use extreme care when inserting a spoon or other utensil into the container.

! CAUTION

To avoid personal injury or property damage, observe the following:

1.Do not deep fat fry in oven. Fat could overheat and be hazardous to handle.

2.Do not cook or reheat eggs in shell or with an unbroken yolk using microwave energy. Pressure may build up and erupt. Pierce yolk with fork or knife before cooking.

3.Pierce skin of potatoes, tomatoes, and similar foods before cooking with microwave energy. When skin is pierced, steam escapes evenly.

4.Do not operate equipment without load or food in oven cavity.

5.Use only popcorn in packages designed and labeled for microwave use. Popping time varies depending on oven wattage. Do not continue to heat after popping has stopped. Popcorn will scorch or burn. Do not leave oven unattended.

6.Do not use regular cooking thermometers in oven. Most cooking thermometers contain mercury and may cause an electrical arc, malfunction, or damage to oven.

7.Do not use metal utensils in oven.

8.Never use paper, plastic, or other combustible materials that are not intended for cooking.

9.When cooking with paper, plastic, or other combustible materials, follow manufacturer's recommendations on product use.

10.Do not use paper towels which contain nylon or other synthetic fibers. Heated synthetics could melt and cause paper to ignite.

11.Do not heat sealed containers or plastic bags in oven. Food or liquid could expand quickly and cause container or bag to break. Pierce or open container or bag before heating.

12.To avoid pacemaker malfunction, consult physician or pacemaker manufacturer about effects of microwave energy on pacemaker.

13.An authorized servicer MUST inspect equipment annually. Record all inspections and repairs for future use.

14.Clean oven regularly and remove any food deposits.

15.To avoid surface deterioration, keep the oven in a clean condition. Infrequent cleaning could adversely affect the life of the appliance and possibly result in a hazadous situation.

Installation

Unpacking Oven

Inspect oven for damage such as dents in door or inside oven cavity.

Report any dents or breakage to source of purchase immediately.

Do not attempt to use oven if damaged.

Remove all materials from oven interior.

If oven has been stored in extremely cold area, wait a few hours before connecting power.

Radio Interference

Microwave operation may cause interference to radio, television, or a similar oven. Reduce or eliminate interference by doing the following:

Clean door and sealing surfaces of oven according to instructions in Care and Cleaning section.

Place radio, television, etc. as far as possible from oven.

Use a properly installed antenna on radio, television, etc. to obtain stronger signal reception.

Oven Placement

Do not install oven next to or above source of heat, such as pizza oven or deep fat fryer. This could cause microwave oven to operate improperly and could shorten life of electrical parts.

Do not block or obstruct oven filter. Allow access for cleaning.

Install oven on level countertop surface.

Place warning label in a conspicuous place close to microwave oven. (50 Hz models only)

Outlet should be located so that plug is accessible when oven is in place.

A

B

A—Allowat least 4" (10.2 cm) of clearance around top and sides of oven. Proper air flow around oven cools electrical components. With restricted air flow, oven may not operate properly and life of electrical parts is reduced.

B—Allowat least 4" (10.2 cm) between air discharge on back of oven and back wall.

Oven Clearances

! WARNING

To avoid risk of electrical shock or death, this oven must be earthed.

! WARNING

To avoid risk of electrical shock or death, do not alter the plug.

Grounding/Earthing Instructions

Oven MUST be grounded.

Grounding reduces risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric current, if an electrical short occurs. This oven is equipped with a cord having a ground wire with a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an outlet that is properly installed and grounded.

Consult a qualified electrician or servicer if grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if doubt exists as to whether the oven is properly grounded.

Do not use an extension cord.

If the product power cord is too short, have a qualified electrician install a three-slotreceptacle. This oven should be plugged into a separate circuit with the electrical rating as provided in product specifications (available on Amana’s wavelink website). When a microwave oven is on a circuit with other equipment, an increase in cooking times may be required and fuses can be blown.

External Equipotential Earthing Terminal (export only)

Equipment has secondary earthing terminal. Terminal provides external earthing connection used in addition to earthing prong on plug. Located on outside of oven back, terminal is marked with symbol shown below.
