– 4 -INSTALLATION AND GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS Examine Your Oven Unpack oven, remove all packing material, and examine the oven for any damage such as dents, broken door latches or cracks in the door. Notify dealer immediately if oven is damaged. DO NOT install if oven is damaged.Remove Protective Plastic FilmIf a plastic Þlm has been wrapped around the oven to protect the painted Þnish from scratching during shipping, please remove this plastic Þlm prior to using the oven. (However, all ovens do not have plastic Þlm wrapping.) Placement of Oven1. Oven must be placed on a ßat, stable surface. For proper operation, the oven must have sufÞcient air ßow. Allow 7.6 cm of space on both sides of the oven and 2.5 cm of space on top of oven.a. DO NOT block air vents. If they are blocked during operation, the oven may overheat. If the oven overheats, a thermal safety device will turn the oven off. The oven will remain inoperable until it has cooled.b. DO NOT place oven near a hot damp surface such as a gas or electric range.c. DO NOT operate oven when room humidity is too high.Grounding InstructionsThis 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.WARNING -Improper use of the grounding plug can result ina risk of electric shock. Consult a qualiÞed electrician or service person if the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if doubt exists as to whether the appliance is properly grounded.If it is necessary to use an extension cord, use only a three wire extension cord that has a three blade grounding plug, and a three slot receptacle that will accept the plug on the appliance. The marked rating of the extension cord should be equal to or greater than the electrical rating of the appliance.Wiring Requirements 1. The oven must be plugged into at least a 15 AMP 120 VOLT, 60 Hz GROUNDED OUTLET. Where a standard two-prong outlet is encountered, it is the personal responsibility and obligation of the user to have it replaced with a properly grounded three-prong outlet (Fig. 1 ). Fig. 1 2. The oven must be on a SEPARATE CIRCUIT. No other appliance should share the circuit with the microwave oven. If it does, the branch circuit fuse may blow, or the circuit breaker may trip or the food may cook slower than the times recommended in this manual.3. The VOLTAGE used must be the same as speci Þed on this microwave oven (120 V). Using a higher voltage is dangerous and may result in a Þre or other accident causing oven damage. Using a lower voltage will cause slow heating. Panasonic is NOT responsible for damage resulting from the use of the oven with other than speciÞed voltage.

– 5 -Safety PrecautionsGeneral Use1. DO NOT tamper with or make any adjustments or repairs to door, control panel housing, safety interlock switches or any other part of the oven. Do NOT remove outer panel from oven. Repairs should only be done by a qualiÞed service person.2. DO NOT operate the oven if empty. The microwave energy will reßect continuously throughout the oven causing overheating, if no food or water is present to absorb energy. This could damage the oven and result in a risk of Þre.3. If a Þre occurs in the oven, press STOP/RESET Pad and LEAVE DOOR CLOSED. Disconnect the power cord, or shut off power at the fuse or circuit breaker panel.4. DO NOT dry clothes, newspapers or other materials in oven or use newspapers or paper bags for cooking. Fire could result.5. DO NOT use recycled paper products unless the paper product is labelled as safe for microwave oven use. Recycled paper products may contain impurities which may cause sparks, and result in Þres when used.6. DO NOT hit or strike control panel. Damage to controls may occur. 7. POT HOLDERS should always be used when removing items from the oven. Heat is transferred from the HOT food to the heating container. 8. DO NOT store ßammable materials next to, on top of, or in the oven. It could be a Þre hazard.UtensilsUse only containers and materials speciÞed by their manufacturers to be for microwave use.1. METAL CONTAINERS or dishes with metallic trims should not be used. Arcing may occur. 2. METAL TWIST-TIES may not be used in the microwave oven.3. DO NOT use SEALED JARS or NARROW NECK bottles for cooking or reheating. They may shatter. 4. DO NOT use CONVENTIONAL THERMOMETERS in the microwave oven. They may cause arcing. 5. Remove PLASTIC STORE WRAPS, before heating in the oven.6. When using foil, skewers, warming rack or utensils made of metal in the oven allow at least 2.5 cm of space between metal material and interior oven walls. If arcing (sparking) occurs remove metal material (skewers, etc.) and/or transfer to a nonmetallic container. Food1. It is better to UNDERHEAT RATHER THAN OVERHEAT foods. If food is underheated, it can always be returned to the oven for further heating. If food is overheated, nothing can be done. Always start with minimum heating times. 2. SMALL QUANTITIES of food or foods with LOW MOISTURE content can burn, dry out or catch on Þre if heated too long.3. Microwave popcorn which pops in its own package is available. Each brand of microwave popcorn recommends that their popcorn be used in microwave ovens listed at a speciÞc wattage. For example: “Use in a microwave oven 600 watts or greater”, or “Tested in microwaves of 450 to 1000 watts. ” Follow popcorn manufacturer’s directions and use a brand suitable for at least a 650 watts microwave oven.4. Do not attempt to deep fat fry in your microwave oven. 5. Do not boil eggs in their shell in a microwave oven. Pressure will build up and the eggs will explode.6. Potatoes, apples, egg yolks, whole acorn squash and sausages are examples of foods with nonporous skins. These types of foods must be pierced before cooking, to prevent bursting.7. Liquids can become “superheated” in a microwave, and when the container is moved in any way, the superheated liquids can “explode” out of the container. “Superheated” water is hotter than boiling water, EVEN THOUGH IT DOES NOT APPEAR TO BUBBLE. To reduce the possibility of this occurrence: Always make sure that liquids are stirred vigorously before heating to assure that the liquid is mixed with air. NEVER HEAT LIQUIDS FOR AN EXCESSIVE LENGTH OF TIME. 8. Do not use paper towels or cloths which contain a synthetic Þber woven into them, such as nylon. The synthetic Þber may cause the towel or cloth to ignite.9. Do not use the oven for any reason other than the preparation of food.10. Your oven is equipped with a protective device designed to turn the unit off in the event of overheating. The oven will automatically reset itself after it has cooled. (approx. 30~60 min.)

– 6 -How Does The Microwave Work? Microwaves are a form of high frequency radio waves similar to those used by a radio including AM; FM and CB. They are, however, much shorter than radio waves; approximately 13 cm long. Electricity is converted into microwave energy by the magnetron tube. From the magnetron tube, microwave energy is transmitted and absorbed.ReflectionMicrowaves are reßected by metal just as a ball is bounced off a wall. A combination of stationary (interior walls) and rotating antenna, located underneath the bottom shelf assure that the microwaves are well distributed within the oven cavity to produce even heating or cooking of foods. Transmission Microwaves pass through some materials such as paper, glass and plastic much like sunlight shining through a window. Because these substances do not absorb or reßect the microwave energy, they are ideal materials for microwave oven heating containers.AbsorptionDuring heating, microwaves will be absorbed by food. They penetrate to a depth of about 2 cm – 4 cm. Microwave energy excites the molecules in the food (especially water, fat and sugar molecules), and causes them to vibrate at a rate of 2,450,000,000 times per second. This vibration causes friction, and heat is produced just as you will feel heat produced if you vigorously rub your hands together. The internal heating of larger foods is done by conduction. The heat which is produced by friction travels by conduction to the center of the food. Foods also continue to heat by conduction during standing time. Because microwaves dissipate, much like sunlight as it reaches the Earth’s surface, they are not stored in food.TV / Radio / Wireless Equipment Interference 1. Operation of the microwave oven may cause interference to your radio, TV, Wi-Fi, cordless telephone, baby monitor, blue tooth, or other wireless equipment.2. When there is interference, it may be reduced or eliminated by taking the following measures: a. Clean door and sealing sufaces of the oven. See Care of Your Microwave Oven found on page 17.) b. Place the radio, TV, etc, away from the microwave oven as far as possible. c. Use a properly installed antenna, to obtain stronger signal reception.
