Check the 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 oven and contact your dealer or SHARP AUTHORIZED SERVICER.

Please read all instructions thoroughly before installing the Over the Counter Microwave Oven. Two people are recommended to install this product.

If a new electrical outlet is required, its installation should be completed by a qualified electrician before the Microwave Oven is installed. See 3 ELECTRICAL GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS on page 7.

1 MOUNTING SPACE

This Microwave Oven requires a mounting space on a wall as shown in Figure 1. It is designed to be used under

standard 24-inch wide wall cabinets.

Figure 1

24"

2 WALL CONSTRUCTION

This Microwave Oven should be mounted against and supported by a flat vertical wall. The wall must be flat for proper installation. If the wall is not flat, use spacers to fill in the gaps. Wall construction should be a minimum of 2” x 4” wood studding and 3/8” or more thick dry wall or plaster/lath. The mounting surfaces must be capable of supporting weight of 110 pounds— the oven and contents— AND the weight of all items which would normally be stored in the top cabinet above the unit.

The unit should be attached to a minimum of one 2” x 4” wall stud.

To find the location of the studs, one of the following methods may be used:

A.Use a stud finder, a magnetic device which locates the nails in the stud.

B.Use a hammer to tap lightly across the mounting surface to find a solid sound. This will indicate stud location.

The center of the stud can be located by probing the wall with a small nail to find the edges of the stud and then placing a mark halfway between the edges. The center of any adjacent studs will normally be 16” or 24” to either side of this mark.

ABOUT YOUR OVEN

This Operation 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. See pages 29-30 for ordering the Ultimate Accessory, the SHARP CAROUSEL MICROWAVE COOKBOOK.

NEVER use the oven without the turntable and support nor turn the turntable over so that a large dish could be placed in the oven. The turntable will turn both clockwise and counterclockwise.

ALWAYS have food in the oven when it is on to absorb the microwave energy.

When using the oven at power levels below 100%, you may hear the magnetron cycling on and off. It is normal for the exterior of the 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 oven. Generally, covered foods will not cause as much condensation as uncovered ones. Vents on the oven back must not be blocked.

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

All ovens are rated 1100 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 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-resistant glass (Pyrex® )

microwave-safe plastics

paper plates

microwave-safe pottery, stoneware and porcelain

browning dish (Do not exceed recommended preheating time. Follow manufacturer's directions.)

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-safe are a good choice because heat is kept near the food to hasten cooking.

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.

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-resistant glass

non-microwave-safe plastics (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 oven and microwave on HIGH for 30 seconds. A dish which

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 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. A micro- wave-safe thermometer will assist you in determining correct doneness and assure you that foods have been cooked to safe temperatures. Sharp is not responsible for any damage to the 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.

The child must be able to reach the 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 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 24 for Child Lock feature.

I N F O R M A T I O N Y O U N E E D T O K N O W

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.

ABOUT SAFETY

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

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.

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 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.

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 DEFROST

If the food that you wish to defrost is not listed on the DEFROST CENTER CHART or is above or below the limits in the “Amount” column on the DEFROST CENTER CHART (see page 22), you need to defrost manually.

You can defrost any frozen food, either raw or previously cooked, by using Power Level for 30%. Follow the exact 4-step procedure found under To Set Power Level. Estimate defrosting time and press POWER LEVEL pad eight times for 30% power.

For either raw or previously cooked frozen food the rule of thumb is approximately 4 minutes per pound. For example, defrost 4 minutes for 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 30% until totally defrosted.

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

Disconnect the power cord before cleaning or leave the door open to inactivate the oven during cleaning.

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

Be careful with the edge of the oven door as it is glass and could chip or break. 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

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

STOP/CLEAR.

rack can be cleaned with hot soapy water, rinsed and dried.

Odor Removal

Occasionally, a cooking odor may remain in the oven. To remove, combine 1 cup water, grated peel and juice of 1 lemon and several whole cloves in a 2-cup glass measuring cup. Boil for several minutes using 100% power. Allow to set in 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-abrasive scouring sponge. They are also dishwasher-proof. Use upper rack of dishwasher. The turntable motor shaft is not sealed, so excess water or spills should be wiped up immediately.

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

Waveguide Cover

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

ACCENT LIGHT AND

TASK LIGHT

1.To replace light bulbs, first disconnect power to the oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging.

2.To release cover, remove the screw on the light cover. (See illustration.)

3.Replace light bulbs with equivalent watt bulb available from your Sharp Authorized Servicer or parts distributor. Bulbs are also available at most hardware stores or lighting centers. DO NOT USE A BULB LARGER THAN 30 WATTS.

4.Close light cover and secure with screw removed in step 2.

CAUTION: Light cover may become very hot. Do not touch glass when light is on.
