2You cannot operate your oven with the door open due to the safety interlocksbuilt into the door mechanism. These safety interlocks automatically switch off any cooking activity when the door is opened; which in the case of a microwave oven could result in harmful exposure to microwave energy. It is important not to tamper with the safety interlocks.Do not place any object between the oven front face and the door or allowfood or cleaner residue to accumulate on sealing surfaces.Do not operate your oven if it is damaged. It is particularly important that theoven door closes properly and that there is no damage to the: (1) door(bent), (2) hinges and latches (broken or loosened), (3) door seals and sealing surfaces.Your oven should not be adjusted or repaired by anyone except qualifiedservice personnel.Warning Precautions to avoid possible exposure to excessive microwave energy. PrecautionsWhen heating liquids, e.g. soups, sauces and beverages in your microwave oven, overheating the liquid beyond boiling point can occur without evidence of bubbling. This could result in a sudden boil over of the hot liquid. To prevent this possibility the following steps should be taken:1 Avoid using straight sided containers with narrow necks. 2 Do not overheat. 3 Stir the liquid before placing the container in the oven and again halfway through the heating time.4 After heating, allow to stand in the oven for a short time, stir or shake them again carefully and check the temperature of them beforeconsumption to avoid burns (especially, contents of feeding bottles and baby food jars).Be careful when handling the container.Warning Always allow food to stand after being cooked bymicrowaves and check the temperature of thembefore consumption. Especially contents of feedingbottles and baby food jars.Please ensure cooking times are correctly set asover cooking may result in the FOOD catching fireand subsequent damage to your oven.

3How the Microwave Oven Works Microwaves are a form of energy similar to radio and television waves andordinary daylight. Normally, microwaves spread outwards as they travel through the atmosphere and disappear without effect. Microwave ovens, however, have a magnetron which is designed to make use of the energy in microwaves. Electricity, supplied to the magnetron tube, is used to created microwave energy.These microwaves enter the cooking area through openings inside the oven. Aturntable or tray is located at the bottom of the oven. Microwaves cannot pass through metal walls of the oven, but they can penetrate such materials as glass, porcelain and paper, the materials out of which microwave-safe cooking dishes are constructed.Microwaves do not heat cookware, though cooking vessels will eventually gethot from the heat generated by the food.A very safe appliance ContentsYour microwave oven is one of the safest of all homeappliances. When the door is opened, the ovenautomatically stops producing microwaves. Microwaveenergy is converted completely to heat when it entersfood, leaving no Òleft overÓ energy to harm you whenyou eat your food.Precautions2Contents3Unpacking & Installing4 ~ 5Setting the Clock6Child Lock7Micro Power Cooking8Micro Power Level9Two Stage Cooking10Quick Start11Grill Cooking12Combination Cooking13Auto Cook14 ~ 16Auto Defrost17 ~18Quick Defrost19 ~ 20Timer21More or Less CookingEnergy Saving2223Important Safety Instructions 24Microwave – safe Utensils25Food characteristics & Microwave cooking26 ~ 27Questions & Answers28Plug Wiring Information/Technical Specifications29
