the hazards of improper use.
INSTALLATION
PRIOR TO CONNECTING
Check that the voltage on the rating plate
corresponds to the voltage in your home.
AFTER CONNECTING
Do not remove the microwave inlet
protection plates located on the side of
the oven cavity wall. They prevent grease &

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING!
Do not use your microwave oven for
heating anything in airtight
sealed containers. The pressure
increases and may cause
damage when opening or
may explode.
WARNING!
The door seals and the door seal areas
must be regularly inspected for damage.
If these areas are damaged the appliance
should not be operated until it has been
repaired by a trained service technician.
EGGS
Do not use your microwave oven for cooking or reheating whole eggs with
or without shell since they may explode even after microwave heating has
ended.
PRECAUTIONS
GENERAL
This appliance is designed for domestic
use only!
LIQUIDS
E.g. beverages or water
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. Stir the liquid before placing the
container in the oven and let the
teaspoon remain in the container.
3. After heating, allow standing for a short
time, stirring again before carefully
removing the container from the oven.
The appliance should not be operated
without food in the oven when using
microwaves. Operation in this manner is
likely to damage the appliance.
If you practice operating the oven, put a
glass of water inside. The water will absorb
the microwave energy and the oven will not
be damaged.
Remove wire twist-ties from
paper or plastic bags before
placing bag in the oven.
DEEP-FRYING
Do not use your microwave
oven for deep-frying,
because the oil temperature
cannot be controlled.
Use hot pads or oven mitts to prevent
burns, when touching containers, oven
parts, and pan after cooking.
CAREFUL
Always refer to a microwave cookbook for
details. Especially, if cooking or reheating
food that contains alcohol.
After heating baby food or
liquids in a baby bottle or in
a baby food jar, always stir
and check the temperature
before serving. This will ensure that the
heat is evenly distributed and the risk of
scalding or burns can be avoided.
Ensure the Lid and the Teat is removed
before heating!
Do not use the cavity for any storage
purposes.
Do not remove the microwave inlet
protection plates located on the side of
the oven cavity wall. They prevent grease &
food particles from entering the microwave
inlet channels.

all cooking methods. It collects
the dripping juices and food
particles that otherwise would
stain and soil the interior of the oven.
* Place the Glass turntable on the turntable
support.
ACCESSORIES
GENERAL
There are a number of accessories
available on the market. Before you buy,
ensure they are suitable for microwave use.
When you put food and accessories in
the microwave oven, ensure that they do
not come in contact with the interior of the
oven. This is especially important with
accessories made of metal or metal
parts.
If accessories containing metal comes in
contact with the oven interior, while the oven
is in operation, sparking can occur and the
oven could be damaged.
Always ensure that the turntable is able to
turn freely before starting the oven.
Ensure that the utensils you use are oven
proof and allow microwaves to pass through
them before cooking.
TURNTABLE SUPPORT
Use the turntable support under
the Glass turntable. Never put
any other utensils on the turntable
support.
* Fit the turntable support in the oven.

MAINTENANCE & CLEANING
Failure to maintain the oven in a clean
condition could lead to deterioration of the
surface that could adversely affect the life
of the appliance and possibly result in a
hazardous situation.
At regular intervals, especially if spillovers
have occurred, remove the turntable, the
turntable support and wipe the base of the
oven clean.
This oven is designed to operate with the
turntable in place.
Do not operate the microwave oven
when the turntable has been removed for
cleaning.
Use a mild detergent, water and a soft
cloth to clean the interior surfaces, front and
rear of the door and the door opening.
Do not allow grease or food particles to
build up around the door.
For stubborn stains, boil a cup of water
in the oven for 2 or 3 minutes. Steam will
soften the marks.

water, placing this on the turntable and
boiling for a few minutes can eliminate
odors inside the oven.
Abrasive cleansers, steel-wool pads,
gritty wash cloths, etc. can damage the
control panel, and the interior and exterior

detergent or a paper towel with spray glass
cleaner. Apply spray glass cleaner to a
paper towel.
