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:

1.Read all instructions before using the appliance.

2.Read and follow the specific 'PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID POSSIBLE EXPOSURE TO EXCESSIVE MICROWAVE ENERGY' on page 2.

3.This appliance must be grounded. Connect only to properly grounded outlet. See 'GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS' on page 6 and INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS.

4.Install or locate this appliance only in accordance with the provided installation instructions.

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

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

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

8.Do not operate this appliance if it has a damaged cord or plug, if it is not working properly or if it has been damaged or dropped.

9.This appliance should be serviced only by qualified service personnel.

10.Do not cover or block any openings on the appliance.

Waveguide cover

Oven Hinges cavity

Latches Door seals and sealing surfaces

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 Fisher & Paykel AUTHORIZED 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.

Warning – Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of electric shock. DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD. If the power supply cord is too short, have a qualified electrician or serviceperson install an outlet near the appliance.

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-prong grounding 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 Fisher & Paykel 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.

RADIO OR TV INTERFERENCE

Should there be any interference caused by the microwave oven to your radio or TV, check that the microwave oven is on a different electrical circuit, relocate the radio or TV as far away from the microwave oven as feasible or check position and signal of receiving antenna.

INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW

ABOUT YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN

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

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.

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.

The fan will automatically start when heat rises from range surface units or burners and when convection, high mix, low mix or the broil settings are used.

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 850 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 (shouldn't touch food) 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 foods such 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.

INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW

ABOUT CHILDREN AND THE MICROWAVE

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

The child must be able to reach the microwave oven comfortably; if not, he/she should stand on a sturdy stool.

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 of 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 29 for Safety Lock feature.

INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW

ABOUT SAFETY

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

TEMP

FOOD

 

 

160˚F

For fresh pork, ground meat, boneless white poultry, fish, seafood, egg dishes and frozen

 

prepared food.

 

 

165˚F

For leftover, ready-to-reheat refrigerated, and deli and carry-out 'fresh' food.

 

 

170˚F

White meat of poultry.

 

 

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

MANUAL MICROWAVE OPERATION

TURNTABLE ON/OFF

For most cooking, the turntable should be on; however the turntable can be turned off so that it does not rotate when extra large dishes, such as the popular 13”x9”x2” glass utility casserole, are used. The casserole should be placed on the turntable so that it is level.

• Suppose you want to cook lasagna in a 13”x9”x2” casserole for 45 minutes on 40% power.

1.Touch TURNTABLE ON/OFF pad and note TURNTABLE OFF in the display.

2.Enter cooking time by touching the number pads 4500.

3.Touch POWER LEVEL pad and the number 4.

4.Touch START.

Notes:

The door can be opened for checking food and the turntable will stay in the off position. After checking, close door and touch START.

The turntable will stay off for one minute after door is opened when time-of-day appears in the display. It is possible to reprogram the oven during that minute without touching the TURNTABLE ON/OFF pad. The display always indicates whether the turntable is off or on.

THE TURNTABLE SHOULD ALWAYS BE ON WHEN USING THE SPECIAL FEATURES. On/Off function can be used with manual cooking modes and Sensor Reheat. Turntable off condition will automatically change to on condition when you select auto cooking except Sensor Reheat and Auto Bake.

When cooking large quantities of food which cannot be stirred, it is best to use a lower power level such as 40 or 50%. You may speed cooking of large amounts by programming 5 to 10 minutes on 100% power (HIGH) followed by the desired time on lower power. See page 28 for how to program multiple sequences. You may wish to reverse a large casserole once during cooking; simply open door, reposition casserole, close door and touch START.

MICROWAVE FEATURES

MANUAL DEFROST

If the food that you wish to defrost is not listed on the Defrost Chart or is above or below the limits in the 'Amount' column on the chart, you need to defrost manually.

You can defrost any frozen food, either raw or previously cooked, by using power level 3. Follow the exact 3-step procedure found under To Set Power Level on page 16. Estimate defrosting time and press number 3 for 30% when you select the power level.

For either raw or previously cooked frozen food, the rule of thumb is approximately 5 minutes per pound. For example, defrost 5 minutes for 2-3 cups of casserole or 1 pound of frozen spaghetti sauce.

Always stop the oven periodically to remove or separate the portions that are defrosted. If food is not defrosted at the end of the estimated defrosting time, program the oven in 1 minute increments on power level 3 until totally defrosted.

When using plastic containers from the freezer, defrost only long enough to remove from the plastic in order to place food in a microwave-safe dish.

SENSOR COOKING

The Sensor is a semi-conductor device 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. It takes the guesswork out of microwave cooking.

Using SENSOR Settings:

1.Room temperature should not exceed 95˚F.

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

3.Sensor cooking can only be entered within 1 minute after cooking, opening and closing the door or touching the STOP/CLEAR pad.

4.During the first part of sensor cooking, SENSOR REHEAT, POPCORN REGULAR SENSOR, BAKED POTATO, FROZEN VEG, SOFT FRESH VEG, HARD FRESH VEG, FROZEN ENTREE, HOT DOGS, BACON or

FISH will appear on display. Do not open oven door or touch STOP/CLEAR during this part of the cooking cycle. The measurement of vapor will be interrupted. If this occurs, ERROR will appear and sensor cooking will be interrupted. To continue cooking, touch the STOP/CLEAR pad and select cooking time and power. When sensor detects the vapor emitted from the food, remainder of cooking time will appear. Door may be opened when remaining cooking time appears on display. At this time, you may stir or season food, as desired.

5.Check food for doneness after cooking with sensor settings. If additional time is needed, continue to cook with variable power and time.

6.If the sensor does not detect vapor, ERROR will appear and the oven will shut off.

7.At the end of any cycle, open oven door or touch STOP/CLEAR pad. The time of day will reappear on the display.

8.Any sensor setting can be programmed with More or Less Time Adjustment. See page 28.

Selecting Foods:

1.The sensor works with foods at normal storage temperature. For example, foods for reheating would be at refrigerator temperature and potatoes for baking would be room temperature.

2.More or less food than the quantity listed in the charts should be cooked by time and variable power.

18

MICROWAVE FEATURES

Covering Foods:

Some foods work best when covered. Use the cover recommended 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.Paper towel: Use paper towels to absorb excess fat and moisture when cooking bacon and potatoes. Line the turntable when baking potatoes.

4.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.

SENSORS

Your oven has Popcorn and Sensor Reheat. To use any of the Sensors, simply touch the chosen pad. The microwave oven will start automatically. Any sensor setting can be programmed with More or Less Time Adjustment. See page 28.

SENSOR REHEAT

Turntable on:

You can reheat many foods by touching just one pad. You don’t need to calculate reheating time or power level. To reheat food with turntable on, simply touch the SENSOR REHEAT pad.

Touch SENSOR REHEAT pad. (Note : Sensor Reheat can be programmed with turntable on or off ). SENSOR REHEAT will be displayed repeatedly. When sensor detects the vapor emitted from the food, remainder of cooking time will appear. After cooking, LET STAND COVER will be displayed.

Turntable off:

You may reheat using a 11”x8”x2” or 13”x9”x2” casserole with the turntable off. First touch TURNTABLE ON/OFF and note indicator. Then touch SENSOR REHEAT. The display will indicate turntable off and oven will start automatically. After cooking, LET STAND COVER will be displayed.

POPCORN

• Suppose you want to pop a 3.5 oz. bag of popcorn.

Touch POPCORN pad once. SENSOR POPCORN REGULAR be displayed repeatedly. After cooking, END will be displayed.

This sensor setting works well with most brands of microwave popcorn. You may wish to try several and choose your favorite. Pop only one bag at a time. Unfold the bag and place in oven according to directions.
