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 38 and 39 for ordering
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 clock-
wise 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 con-
densation as uncovered ones. Vents on the oven back
must not be blocked.
After using convection, grill, roast, AutoBake,
AutoPizza, AutoGrill or AutoRoast, you will hear the
sound of the cooling fan. The fan may operate depend-
ing on the oven temperature.
Be aware that, unlike microwave-only ovens, convec-
tion microwave ovens have a tendency to become hot.
The oven is hot whenever the top grill, both grill or con-
vection symbols are lighted in the display
The oven is for food preparation only. It should not be
used to dry clothes or newspapers.
Your oven is rated 900 watts by using the IEC Test
Procedure method. In using recipes or package
directions, check food a minute or two before the
minimum time and add time accordingly.
