Do NOT attempt to tamper with or make any
adjustments or repairs to door, control panel or
any other part of the oven. Do NOT remove
outer panel from oven. Repairs should only be
done by qualified service personnel.
Do NOT operate the oven empty. The
microwave energy will reflect continuously
throughout the oven if no food or water is
present to absorb energy.
If a fire occurs in the oven, touch the
Cancel/Stop button and LEAVE THE DOOR
CLOSED. Disconnect the power cord, or shut
off power at the fuse or circuit breaker panel.
Do NOT attempt to dry clothes, newspapers or other
materials in the oven. They may catch on fire.
Do NOT use recycled paper products. Recycled
paper towels, napkins and waxed paper can
contain metal flecks which may cause arcing or
ignite. Paper products containing nylon or nylon
filaments should be avoided, as they may ignite.
Some styrofoam trays (like those that meat is
packaged on) have a thin strip of metal
embedded on the bottom. When microwaved,
the metal can burn the floor of the oven or ignite
a paper towel.
Avoid inserting nails, wire, etc. through any
holes in the unit during operation. Never insert
a wire, nail or any other metal objects through
the holes on the cavity or any other holes or
gaps, because such objects may cause electric
shock and microwave leakage.
METAL CONTAINERS or dishes with metallic
rims should not be used. Arcing may occur.
METAL TWIST-TIES may not be used in the
Do NOT use SEALED JARS or NARROW
NECK bottles for cooking or reheating. They
Do NOT use CONVENTIONAL THERMO-
METERS in the microwave oven. They may
Remove PLASTIC STORE WRAPS before
cooking or defrosting foods in the oven.
For FURTHER INFORMATION on proper
cooking utensils, refer to the COOKING GUIDE
on page 14.
Never use your microwave oven for HOME
CANNING. The oven is not designed to permit
proper canning. Improperly canned food may
spoil and be dangerous to consume.
COOKING TIMES given in the cooking guide
are approximate. Factors that may affect
cooking are starting temperature, altitude,
volume, size and shape of food and utensils
used. As you become familiar with the oven,
you will be able to adjust for these factors.
It is better to UNDERCOOK RATHER THAN
OVERCOOK foods. If food is undercooked, it can
always be returned to the oven for further cooking.
If food is overcooked, nothing can be done. Always
start with minimum cooking times.
SMALL QUANTITIES of food or foods with
LOW MOISTURE content can burn, dry out or
catch on fire if cooked too long.
Do NOT boil eggs in their shell. Pressure may
build up and the eggs may explode.
Potatoes, apples, egg yolks, whole acorn
squash and sausage are some examples of
food with NONPOROUS SKINS. These must
be pierced before cooking to prevent bursting.
POPCORN must be popped in a microwave corn
popper. Microwave popped corn produces a lower
yield than conventional popping. Do not use oven
for popcorn unless popped in a microwave
approved popcorn utensil or unless it’s
commercially packaged and recommended
especially for microwave ovens. Do not use oil
unless specified by the manufacturer.
Do NOT attempt to deep fat fry in your oven.
HEATED LIQUIDS can ERUPT if not mixed with
air. Do not heat liquids in your microwave oven
without first stirring.
