Safety

WARNING

Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of electric shock. Consult a qualified electrician or servicer if you do not understand the grounding instructions or if you are not sure if the appliance is properly grounded.

Use of Extension Cords

A short power-supplycord is provided to reduce the risk of becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. Longer cord sets or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use. If a long cord or extension cord is used:

1.The 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-type3-wirecord and it must be plugged into a3-slotoutlet.

3.The longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the counter top or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over accidentally. If you use an extension cord, the interior light may flicker and the blower may vary when the microwave oven is on. Cooking times may be longer, too.

Note

Connect the oven to a 20A circuit . When connecting the oven to a 15A circuit, make sure that circuit breaker is operable.

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:

1.Do not overheat the liquid.

2.Stir the liquid both before and halfway through heating it.

3.Do not use straight-sidedcontainers with narrow necks.

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

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

WARNING

Do not cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord under any circumstances.

Cooking Instructions

Cooking Utensils

Recommended Use

Glass and glass-ceramicbowls and dishes— Use for heating or cooking.

Microwavable browning dish — Use to brown the exterior of small items such as steaks, chops, or pancakes. Follow the directions provided with your browning dish.

Microwavable plastic wrap — Use to retain steam. Leave a small opening for some steam to escape and avoid placing it directly on the food.

Wax paper — Use as a cover to prevent spattering.

Paper towels and napkins — Use forshort-termheating and covering; they absorb excess moisture and prevent spattering. Do not use recycled paper towels, which may contain metal and can catch fire.

Paper plates and cups — Use forshort-termheating at low temperatures. Do not use recycled paper, which may contain metal and can catch fire.

Thermometers — Use only those labeled “Microwave Safe” and follow all directions. Check the food in several places. Conventional thermometers may be used once the food has been removed from the oven.

Limited Use

Aluminum foil — Use narrow strips of foil to prevent overcooking of exposed areas. Using too much foil can damage your oven, so be careful.

Ceramic, porcelain, and stoneware — Use these if they are labeled “Microwave Safe”. If they are not labeled, test them to make sure they can be used safely. Never use dishes with metallic trim.

Plastic — Use only if labeled “Microwave Safe”. Other plastics can melt.

Straw, wicker, and wood — Use only forshort-termheating, as they can be flammable.

Not Recommended

Glass jars and bottles — Regular glass is too thin to be used in a microwave, and can shatter.

Paper bags — These are a fire hazard, except for popcorn bags that are designed for microwave use.

Styrofoam plates and cups — These can melt and leave an unhealthy residue on food.

Plastic storage and food containers — Containers such as margarine tubs can melt in the microwave.

Metal utensils — These can damage your oven. Remove all metal before cooking.

Testing Utensils

If you are not sure whether a dish is microwave-safeor not, you can perform this test:

1 Fill a cup with water and put it inside your oven, next to the dish you want to test.

2 Press theOne Minute + button once to heat them for one minute at High power. PressStart button.

The water should be warm and the dish you are testing should be cool. If the dish is warm, then it is absorbing microwave energy and is not acceptable for use in the microwave.

Cooking Instructions

Cooking Techniques

Stirring

Stir foods such as casseroles and vegetables while cooking to distribute heat evenly. Food at the outside of the dish absorbs more energy and heats more quickly, so stir from the outside to the center. The oven will turn off when you open the door to stir your food.

Arrangement

Arrange unevenly shaped foods, such as chicken pieces or chops, with the thicker, meatier parts toward the outside of the turntable where they receive more microwave energy. To prevent overcooking, place thin or delicate parts toward the center of the turntable.

Shielding

Shield food with narrow strips of aluminum foil to prevent overcooking. Areas that need shielding include poultry wing-tips,the ends of poultry legs, and corners of square baking dishes. Use only small amounts of aluminum foil. Larger amounts can damage your oven.

Turning

Turn foods over midway through cooking to expose all parts to microwave energy. This is especially important with large items such as roasts.

Standing

Foods cooked in the microwave build up internal heat and continue to cook for a few minutes after the oven stops. Let foods stand to complete cooking, especially foods such as roasts and whole vegetables. Roasts need this time to complete cooking in the center without overcooking the outer areas. All liquids, such as soup or hot chocolate, should be shaken or stirred when cooking is complete. Let liquids stand a moment before serving. When heating baby food, stir well and test the temperature before serving.

Adding Moisture

Microwave energy is attracted to water molecules. Food that is uneven in moisture content should be covered or allowed to stand so that the heat disperses evenly. Add a small amount of water to dry food to help it cook.

General Tips

Dense foods, such as potatoes, take longer to heat than lighter foods. Foods with a delicate texture should be heated at a low power level to avoid becoming tough.

Altitude and the type of cookware you are using can affect cooking time. When using a new recipe, use the minimum cooking time and check the food occasionally to prevent overcooking.

Foods with a non-porousskin or shell, such as potatoes, eggs, or hot dogs, should be pierced to prevent bursting.

Frying with heating oil or fat is not recommended. Fat and oil can suddenly boil over and cause severe burns.

Some ingredients heat faster than others. For example, the jelly inside a jelly doughnut will be hotter than the dough. Keep this in mind to avoid burns.

Home canning in the microwave oven is not recommended because all harmful bacteria may not be destroyed by the microwave heating process.

Although microwaves do not heat the cookware, the heat is often transferred to the cookware. Always use pot holders when removing food from the microwave and instruct children to do the same.

Always pierce whole eggs to keep them from bursting.

Cook eggs just until set; they become tough if overcooked.

Guide for Cooking Vegetables in Your Microwave

Vegetables should be washed just before cooking. Often, no extra

water is needed. If dense vegetables such as potatoes, carrots and green beans are being cooked, add about ¼ cup water.

Small vegetables (sliced carrots, peas, lima beans, etc.) will cook faster than larger ones.

Whole vegetables, such as potatoes, acorn squash or corn on the cob, should be arranged in a circle on the turntable before cooking. They will cook more evenly if turned over after half the cooking time.

Always place vegetables like asparagus and broccoli with the stem ends pointing towards the edge of the dish and the tips toward the center.

When cooking cut vegetables, always cover the dish with a lid or

vented microwavable plastic wrap.

Whole, unpeeled vegetables such as potatoes, squash, eggplant, etc., should have their skin pricked in several spots before cooking to prevent them from bursting.

For more even cooking, stir or rearrange whole vegetables halfway through the cooking time.

Generally, the denser the food, the longer the standing time. (Standing time refers to the time necessary for dense, large foods and vegetables to finish cooking after they come out of the oven.) A baked potato can stand on the counter for five minutes before cooking is completed, while a dish of peas can be served immediately.

Cooking Instructions

Auto Defrosting Guide

Follow the instructions below when defrosting different types of food.

Food

Standard

Procedure

Amount

 

 

 

 

 

Roast

2.5-6.0lbs.

Start with the food placed fat side down.

Beef, Pork

 

After each stage, turn the food over and

 

 

shield any warm portions with narrow

 

 

strips of aluminum foil.

Steaks,

0.5-3.0lbs.

After each stage, rearrange the food. If

Chops,

 

there are any warm or thawed portions of

Fish

 

food, shield them with narrow flat pieces

 

 

of aluminum foil. Remove any pieces of

 

 

food that are nearly defrosted. Let stand,

 

 

covered, for 5-10minutes.

Ground

0.5-3.0lbs.

After each stage, remove any pieces of

Meat

 

food that are nearly defrosted. Let stand,

 

 

covered with foil, for 5–10minutes.

Whole

2.5-6.0lbs.

Remove giblets before freezing poultry.

Chicken

 

Start defrosting with the breast side

 

 

down. After the first stage, turn the

 

 

chicken over and shield any warm

 

 

portions with narrow strips of aluminum

 

 

foil. After the second stage, again shield

 

 

any warm portions with narrow strips of

 

 

aluminum foil. Let stand, covered, for

 

 

30–60minutes in the refrigerator.

Chicken

0.5-3.0lbs.

After each stage, rearrange or remove

Pieces

 

any pieces of food that are nearly

 

 

defrosted. Let stand for 10-20minutes.

 

 

 

Notes

Check foods when the oven signals. After the final stage, small sections may still be icy; let them stand to continue thawing. Do not defrost until all ice crystals have thawed. Shielding roasts and steaks with small pieces of foil prevents the edges from cooking before the center of the food has defrosted. Use narrow, flat, smooth strips of aluminum foil to cover the edges and thinner sections of the food.

Troubleshooting Guide

Before you call a repair person for your oven, check this list of possible problems and solutions.

Neither the oven’s display nor the oven operate.

Properly insert the plug into a grounded outlet.

If the outlet is controlled by a wall switch, make sure the wall switch is turned on.

Remove the plug from the outlet, wait ten seconds, then plug it in again.

Reset the circuit breaker or replace any blown fuse.

Plug another appliance into the outlet; if the other appliance doesn’t work, have a qualified electrician repair the outlet.

Plug the oven into a different outlet.

The oven’s display works, but the power won’t come on.

Make sure the door is closed securely.

Check to see if packing material or other material is stuck to the door seal.

Check for door damage.

Press Cancel twice and re-enterall cooking instructions.

The power goes off before the set time has elapsed.

If there has not been a power outage, remove the plug from the outlet, wait ten seconds, then plug it in again. If there was a power outage, the time indicator will display “ ” Reset the clock and any cooking instructions.

Reset the circuit breaker or replace any blown fuse.

The food is cooking too slowly.

Make sure the oven is on its own 20 amp circuit line. Operating another appliance on the same circuit can cause a voltage drop. If necessary, move the oven to its own circuit.

You see sparks or arcing.

Remove any metallic utensils, cookware, or metal ties. If using foil, use only narrow strips and allow at least one inch between the foil and interior oven walls.

The turntable makes noises or sticks.

Clean the turntable, roller ring and oven floor.

Make sure the turntable and roller ring are positioned correctly.

Using your microwave causes TV or radio interference.

This is similar to the interference caused by other small appliances, such as hair dryers. Move your microwave further away from other appliances, like your TV or radio.

Note :

If the oven is set more than 25 minutes at 80, 90 or 100 percent power level, after the first 25 minutes the power level will automatically adjust itself to 70 percent power to avoid overcooking.

Care and Cleaning

Follow these instructions to clean and care for your oven.

Keep the inside of the oven clean. Food particles and spilled liquids can stick to the oven walls, causing the oven to work less efficiently.

Wipe up spills immediately. Use a damp cloth and mild soap. Do not use harsh detergents or abrasives.

To help loosen baked on food particles or liquids, heat two cups of water (add the juice of one lemon if you desire to keep the oven fresh) in a four-cupmeasuring glass atHigh power for five minutes or until boiling. Let stand in the oven for one or two minutes.

Remove the glass tray from the oven when cleaning the oven or tray. To prevent the tray from breaking, handle it carefully and do not put it in water immediately after cooking. Wash the tray carefully in warm sudsy water or in the dishwasher.

Clean the outside surface of the oven with soap and a damp cloth. Dry with a soft cloth. To prevent damage to the operating parts of the oven, don’t let water seep into the openings.

Wash the door window with very mild soap and water. Be sure to use a soft cloth to avoid scratching.

If steam accumulates inside or outside the oven door, wipe with a soft cloth. Steam can accumulate when operating the oven in high

humidity and in no way indicates microwave leakage.

• Never operate the oven without food in it; this can damage the magnetron tube or glass tray. You may wish to leave a cup of water in the oven when it is not in use to prevent damage if the oven is accidentally turned on.
