EN-3

19.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.

i)Do not overheat the liquid.

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

iii)Do not use straight-sided containers with narrow necks.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

DANGER

Electric Shock Hazard Touching some of the internal components can cause serious personal injury or death. Do not disassemble this appliance.

WARNING

Electric Shock Hazard Improper use of the grounding can result in electric shock. Do not plug into an outlet until appliance is properly installed and grounded.

Three-pronged (grounding) plug

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

Consult a qualified electrician or serviceman if the grounding instructions are not completely understood or if doubt exists as to whether the appliance is properly grounded. If it is necessary to use an extension cord, use only a 3-wire extension cord that has a 3-pronged grounding plug, and a 3-slot receptacle that will accept the plug on the appliance. The marked rating of the extension cord shall be equal to or greater than the electrical rating of the appliance.

1.A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risks resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.

2.Longer cord sets or extension cords are available and may be used if cared is exercised in their use.

3.If a long cord sets or extension cord is used:

1)The marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance.

2)The extension cord must be a grounding-type 3-wire cord; and

3)The longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over unintentionally.

EN-5

Radio Interference

1.Operation of the microwave oven may cause interference to your radio, TV or similar equipment.

2.When there is interference, it may be reduced or eliminated by taking the following measures:

1)Clean door and sealing surface of the oven

2)Reorient the receiving antenna of radio or television.

3)Relocate the microwave oven with respect to the receiver.

4)Move the microwave oven away from the receiver.

5)Plug the microwave oven into a different outlet so that microwave oven and receiver are on different branch circuits.
