MICROWAVE OVEN SAFETY

Your safety and the safety of others are very important.

We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and obey all safety messages.

This is the safety alert symbol.

This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.

All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word “DANGER” or “WARNING.” These words mean:

DANGER

WARNING

You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't immediately follow instructions.

You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow instructions.

All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can happen if the instructions are not followed.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

When using electrical appliances basic safety precautions should be followed, including the following:

WARNING: To reduce the risk of burns, electric shock, fire, injury to persons, or exposure to excessive microwave energy:

Read all instructions before using the microwave oven.

Read and follow the specific “PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID POSSIBLE EXPOSURE TO EXCESSIVE MICROWAVE ENERGY” found in this section.

The microwave oven must be grounded. Connect only to properly grounded outlet. See “GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS” found in this section and in the provided Installation Instructions.

Install or locate the microwave oven only in accordance with the provided Installation Instructions.

Some products such as whole eggs in the shell and sealed containers – for example, closed glass jars – are able to explode and should not be heated in the microwave oven.

Use the microwave oven only for its intended use as described in this manual. Do not use corrosive chemicals or vapors in the microwave oven. This type of oven is specifically designed to heat, cook, or dry food. It is not designed for industrial or laboratory use.

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

Do not operate the microwave oven if it has a damaged cord or plug, if it is not working properly, or if it has been damaged or dropped.

The microwave oven should be serviced only by qualified service personnel. Call an authorized service company for examination, repair, or adjustment.

See door surface cleaning instructions in the “Microwave Oven Care” section.

To reduce the risk of fire in the oven cavity:

Do not overcook food. Carefully attend the microwave oven when paper, plastic, or other combustible materials are placed inside the oven to facilitate cooking.

Remove wire twist-ties from paper or plastic bags before placing bags in oven.

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.

Do not use the cavity for storage purposes. Do not leave paper products, cooking utensils, or food in the cavity when not in use.

Liquids, such as water, coffee, or tea are able to be overheated beyond the boiling point without appearing to be boiling. 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 THE CONTAINER IS DISTURBED OR A SPOON OR OTHER UTENSIL IS INSERTED INTO THE LIQUID.

To reduce the risk of injury to persons:

Do not overheat the liquid.

Stir the liquid both before and halfway through heating it.

Do not use straight-sided containers with narrow necks.

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

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

Oversized foods or oversized metal utensils should not be inserted in the microwave oven as they may create a fire or risk of electric shock.

Do not clean with metal scouring pads. Pieces can burn off the pad and touch electrical parts involving a risk of electric shock.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Do not operate any heating or cooking appliance beneath the microwave oven.

Do not mount microwave oven over or near any portion of a heating or cooking appliance.

Do not use paper products when appliance is operated in convection, combination, grill or “PAN BROWN” mode (on models with such features).

Do not store any materials, other than manufacturer’s recommended accessories, in this microwave oven when not in use.

Do not store anything directly on top of the microwave oven when the microwave oven is in operation.

Do not cover or block any openings on the microwave oven.

Do not store this microwave oven outdoors. Do not use the microwave oven near water - for example, near a kitchen sink, in a wet basement, or near a swimming pool, or similar locations.

Do not immerse cord or plug in water.

Keep cord away from heated surfaces.

Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter.

Do not mount over a sink.

Do not cover racks or any other part of the microwave oven with metal foil. This will cause overheating of the microwave oven.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID POSSIBLE EXPOSURE TO EXCESSIVE MICROWAVE ENERGY

(a)Do not attempt to operate this oven with the door open since open-door operation can result in harmful exposure to microwave energy. It is important not to defeat or tamper with the safety interlocks.

(b)Do not place any object between the oven front face and the door or allow soil or cleaner residue to accumulate on sealing surfaces.

(c)Do not operate the oven if it is damaged. It is particularly important that the oven door close properly and that there is no damage to the:

(1)Door (bent),

(2)Hinges and latches (broken or loosened),

(3)Door seals and sealing surfaces.

(d)The oven should not be adjusted or repaired by anyone except properly qualified service personnel.

This device complies with Part 18 of the FCC Rules.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Unpacking

1.Empty the microwave oven of any packing materials.

2.Clean the inside with a soft, damp cloth.

3.Check for damage, such as:

a door that is not lined up correctly

damage around the door, or

dents on the interior or exterior of the microwave oven.

If there is any damage, do not operate the microwave oven until a designated service technician has checked it and made any needed repairs.

LocationRequirements

Place the microwave oven on a cart, counter, table or shelf that is strong enough to hold the microwave oven and the food and utensils you place inside it.

The microwave oven should be at a temperature above 50°F (10°C) for proper operation.

Do not block the exhaust vents or air intake openings. Allow a few inches of space at the back and side of the microwave oven where the exhaust vents are located. Blocking the exhaust vents could cause damage to the microwave oven, as well as poor cooking results.

Make sure the microwave oven legs are in place to ensure proper airflow. If vents are blocked, a sensitive thermal device may automatically turn the microwave oven off. The microwave oven should work properly once it has cooled.
