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 4.
  3. This appliance must be grounded. Connect only to a properly grounded outlet. See “Grounding instructions” on page 4.
  4. Install or locate this appliance only by the provided installation instructions.
  5. Some products such as whole eggs and sealed containers (for example, closed glass jars) can explode and should not be heated in this microwave.
  6. Use this appliance only for its intended use as described in the manual. Do not use corrosive chemicals or vapors in this appliance. This type of 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 plugs 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. Contact the nearest authorized service facility for examination, repair, or adjustment.
  10. Do not cover or block any openings on the appliance.
  11. Do not store this appliance outdoors. Do not use this product near water – for example, near a kitchen sink, in a wet basement, near a swimming pool, or similar location.
  12. Do not immerse the cord or plug in water.
  13. Keep the cord away from heated surfaces.
  14. Do not let the cord hang over the edge of the table or counter.
  15. When cleaning the surface between the door and the compartment, use only mild, nonabrasive soaps, or detergent applied with a sponge or soft cloth.
  16. To reduce the risk of fire in the oven cavity:
  17. Do not overcook food. Carefully attend to the appliance when paper, plastic, or other combustible materials are placed inside the oven to facilitate cooking.
  18. Remove wire twist-ties from paper or plastic bags before placing them in the oven.
  19. If material inside of the oven ignites, keep the oven door closed, turn the oven off, and disconnect the power cord, or shut off power at the fuse or circuit breaker panel.
  20. Do not use the cavity for storage purposes. Do not leave paper products, cooking utensils, or food in the cavity when not in use.
  21. Liquids, such as water, coffee, or tea, may overheat 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 LIQUID SUDDENLY BOILING OVER WHEN THE CONTAINER IS DISTURBED OR A UTENSIL IS INSERTED INTO THE LIQUID. To reduce the risk of injury to persons:
  22. Do not overheat the liquid.
  23. Stir the liquid both before and halfway through heating it.
  24. Do not use straight-sided containers with narrow necks.
  25. After heating, allow the container to stand in the microwave oven for a short time before removing the container.
  26. Use extreme care when inserting a spoon or other utensil into the container.
  27. As with any appliance, close supervision is necessary when the microwave oven is used by children.
  28. If material inside of the oven should ignite, the oven door should be kept closed, the appliance turned off, the power cord disconnected, or the power shut off at the fuse or circuit breaker panel.

Grounding instructions

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 a grounding wire with a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an outlet that is properly installed and grounded.

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 plug can result in electric shock. Do not plug into an outlet until the appliance 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.

  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 care is exercised in their use.
  3. If a long cord or extension cord is used:
  • The marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance.
  • The extension cord must be a grounding-type 3-wire cord.
  • 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.

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:
  • Clean the door and sealing surface of the oven.
  • Reorient the receiving antenna of the radio or television.
  • Move the microwave oven away from the receiver.
  • Plug the microwave oven into a different outlet so that the microwave and receiver are on different branch circuits.
  • Relocate the microwave oven concerning the receiver.

Cookware and Materials Test:

  1. Fill a microwave-safe container with 1 cup (250 ml) of cold water, along with the cookware or materials in question.
  2. Cook on maximum power for one minute. Do not exceed one minute of cooking time.
  3. Carefully feel the cookware or material. If the empty cookware or material is warm, do not use it for microwave cooking.

Cleaning and maintaining your microwave

Cleaning the outside of your microwave
Exterior
The outside surface is precoated plastic. Clean the outside with mild soap and water, then rinse and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use any type of household or abrasive cleaner.

Door
Wipe the window on both sides with a damp cloth to remove any spills or spatters. Metal parts are 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.

Control panel
If the control panel is dirty, open the microwave door before cleaning. 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 the door and press STOP/Cancel to clear any buttons you may have pressed.
