Check the microwave oven for any damage, such as misaligned or bent door, damaged door seals and sealing surfaces, broken or loose door hinges and latches and dents inside the cavity or on the door. If there is any damage, do not operate the microwave oven and contact your dealer or ELECTROLUX SERVICER. See Installation Instructions for more details.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

This appliance must be grounded. This microwave oven is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. It must be plugged into a wall receptacle that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances. In the event of an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric current.

Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of electric shock.

Electrical Requirements

Check Installation Instructions for proper location for the power supply.

The electrical requirements are a 120 volt 60 Hz, AC only, 15 amp. or more protected electrical supply. It is recommended that a separate circuit serving only the microwave oven be provided.

The microwave oven is equipped with a 3-pronggrounding plug. It must be plugged into a wall receptacle that is properly installed and grounded. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES CUT OR REMOVE THE GROUNDING PIN FROM THE PLUG.

NOTES:

1. If you have any questions about the grounding or electrical instructions, consult a qualified electrician or service person.

2.Neither Electrolux nor the dealer can accept any liability for damage to the microwave oven or personal injury resulting from failure to observe the correct electrical connection procedures.

Important Safety Instructions

ABOUT YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN

This Use and Care Manual is valuable: read it carefully and always save it for reference.

A good microwave cookbook is a valuable asset. Check it for microwave cooking principles, techniques, hints and recipes.

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 microwave oven. The turntable will turn both clockwise and counterclockwise. See page 18 for complete instructions.

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 on and off. It is normal for the exterior of the microwave oven to be warm to the touch when cooking or reheating.

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 microwave oven. Generally, covered foods will not cause as much condensation as uncovered ones. Ventilation openings must not be blocked.

The microwave oven is for food preparation only. It should not be used to dry clothes or newspapers.

Your microwave oven is rated 1000 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 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 microwave 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 FOODS

Do not pop popcorn in your microwave oven unless in a special microwave popcorn accessory or unless you use popcorn labeled for use in microwave ovens.

Some products such as whole eggs and sealed containers—forexample, closedjars—willexplode and should not be heated in this microwave oven. Such use of the microwave oven could result in injury.

Do not boil eggs in a microwave oven. Pressure will build up inside egg yolk and will cause it to burst, possibly resulting in injury.

Operating the microwave with no food inside for more than a minute or two may cause damage to the microwave oven and could start a fire. It increases the heat around the magnetron and can shorten the life of the microwave oven.

Foods with unbroken outer “skin” such as potatoes, hot dogs, sausages, tomatoes, apples, chicken livers and other giblets, and egg yolks should be pierced to allow steam to escape during cooking.

Avoid heating baby food in glass jars, even with the lid off. Make sure all infant food is thoroughly cooked. Stir food to distribute the heat evenly. Be careful to prevent scalding when warming formula or breast milk. The container may feel cooler than the milk really is. Always test the milk before feeding the baby.

Spontaneous boiling—Undercertain special circumstances, liquids may start to boil during or shortly after removal from the microwave oven. To prevent burns from splashing liquid, we recommend the following: before removing the container from the microwave oven, allow the container to stand in the microwave oven for 30 to 40 seconds after the microwave oven has shut off. Do not boil liquids

Important Safety Instructions

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-resistantglass (Pyrex®)

microwave-safeplastics

paper plates

microwave-safepottery, 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-resistantglass

non-microwave-safeplastics (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 microwave 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-safeare a good choice because heat is kept near the food to hasten cooking.

Microwave 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 microwave 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. Amicrowave-safethermometer will assist you in

6

determining correct doneness and assure you that foods have been cooked to safe temperatures. Electrolux is not responsible for any damage to the microwave oven when accessories are used.

ABOUT CHILDREN AND THE MICROWAVE

Children below the age of 7 should use the microwave oven with a supervising person very near to them. Between the ages of 7 and 12, the supervising person should be in the same room.

As with any appliance, close supervision by an adult is necessary when used by children.

At no time should anyone be allowed to lean or swing on the microwave oven door.

Children should be taught all safety precautions: use potholders, remove coverings carefully, pay special attention to packages that crisp food because they may be extra hot.

Don’t assume that because a child has mastered one cooking skill he/she can cook everything.

Children need to learn that the microwave oven is not a toy. See page 16 for Child Lock feature.

ABOUT SAFETY

Check foods to see that they are cooked to the United States Department of Agriculture's recommended temperatures.

160˚F - For fresh pork, ground meat, boneless white poultry, fish, seafood, egg dishes and frozen prepared food.

165˚F - For leftover, ready-to-reheatrefrigerated, and deli andcarry-out“fresh” food.

170˚F - White meat of poultry.

175˚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 oven 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.

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.

Stay near the microwave oven while it's in use and check cooking progress frequently so that there is no chance of overcooking food.

NEVER use the cavity for storing cookbooks or other items.

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 microwave oven so that the utensil, your clothes or accessories do not touch the safety door latches.

Operating Instructions

Special Features

SENSOR COOKING

Electrolux’s Sensor is a semi-conductordevice 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 Settings:

1.After microwave oven is plugged in, wait 2 minutes before using SENSOR COOKING.

2.Be sure the exterior of the cooking container and the interior of the microwave oven are dry. Wipe off any moisture with a dry cloth or paper towel.

3.The microwave oven works with foods at normal storage temperature. For example, popcorn would be at room temperature.

4.Any SENSOR COOKING selection can be programmed with More or Less Time Adjustment. See page 17.

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 SENSOR COOKING, food name will appear on the display. Do not open the microwave oven door or touch Clear/Off during this part of the cooking cycle. The measurement of vapor will be interrupted. If this occurs, an error message will appear. To continue cooking, touch theClear/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.If the sensor does not detect vapor properly when popping popcorn, the microwave oven will turn off, and the correct time of day will be displayed. If the sensor does not detect vapor properly when cooking other foods, ERROR will be displayed, and the microwave oven will turn off.

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 pad when the HELP indicator is lighted in the display.

10.To use SENSOR COOKING, touch pad within 3 minutes after cooking, closing the door, touching the Clear/Off pad or during cooking.

Covering Foods:

Some foods work best when covered. Use the cover recommended

SENSOR REHEAT CHART

in the SENSOR COOKING CHART for these foods.

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.

SENSOR REHEAT

You can cook many foods by touching just one pad. You don’t need to calculate cooking time or power level.

• Suppose you want to reheat canned chili.

1.Touch Sensor Reheat pad. When sensor detects the vapor emitted from the food, remainder of reheating time will appear.

2.At end, follow the directions in the display.

NOTE: The Turntable On/Off, Sensor Reheat, Popcorn, Fresh Veggie and Poultry settings have 2 choices. Follow directions in the Interactive Display to choose desired option.

USING THE RACK

The rack allows several foods to be cooked or reheated at one time. However, for the best cooking and reheating, use the turntable on and the automatic features.

When using the rack, set time and power level manually. Allow plenty of space around and between the dishes. Pay close attention to the cooking/reheating progress. Reposition the foods and reverse them from rack to turntable at least once during any cooking or reheating time. Using a lower power level will assist in better cooking/reheating uniformity.

AVOID:

Storing the rack in the microwave oven when not in use.

Popping popcorn on the turntable with the rack in the microwave oven.

Using any browning dish on the rack.

Using special features with the rack. Special features are designed to be used with foods only on the revolving turntable.

Cooking directly on the rack—usemicrowave-safecookware.

Cleaning and Care

EXTERIOR

The outside surface is precoated steel and plastic. 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.

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 Clear/Off.

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.

WAVEGUIDE COVER

The waveguide cover is located on the ceiling in the microwave oven cavity. It is made from mica so requires special care. Keep the waveguide cover clean to assure good microwave oven performance. Carefully wipe with a damp cloth any food spatters from the surface of the cover immediately after they occur. Built-upsplashes may overheat and cause smoke or possibly catch fire. DO NOT REMOVE THE WAVEGUIDE COVER.

ODOR REMOVAL

Occasionally, a cooking odor may remain in the microwave oven. To remove, combine 1 cup water, grated peel and juice of 1 lemon and several whole cloves in a 2-cupglass measuring cup. Boil for several minutes using 100% power. Allow to set in microwave oven until cool. Wipe interior with a soft cloth.

TURNTABLE/TURNTABLE SUPPORT

The turntable and turntable support can be removed for easy cleaning. Wash them in mild, sudsy water; for stubborn stains use a mild cleanser and non-abrasivescouring sponge. They are alsodishwasher-proof.Use upper rack of dishwasher. The turntable motor shaft is not sealed, so excess water or spills should be wiped up immediately.

GREASE FILTERS

Filters should be cleaned at least once a month. Never operate the fan or microwave oven without the filters in place.

1.Pull down slightly on the tab toward the front of the microwave oven and remove the filter. Repeat for the other filter.

2.Soak the filters in a sink or dish pan filled with hot water and detergent. DO NOT use ammonia or other alkali; they will react with the filter material and darken it.

3.Agitate and scrub with a brush to remove embedded dirt.

4.Rinse thoroughly and shake dry.

5.Replace by fitting the filter back into the opening.
