IMPORTANT! IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS: READ CAREFULLY AND
KEEP FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.
If food being heated begins to smoke, DO NOT OPEN
THE DOOR. Turn off and unplug the oven and wait until
the food has stopped smoking. Opening the door while
food is smoking may cause a fire. Only use microwave-
safe containers and utensils. Do not leave the oven
unattended when using disposable plastic, paper or
other combustible food containers. Clean the waveguide
cover, the oven cavity, the turntable and turntable
support after use. These must be dry and free from
grease. Built-up grease may overheat and begin to
smoke or catch fire. The microwave oven is intended for
heating food and beverages. Drying of food or clothing
and heating of warming pads, slippers, sponges, damp
cloth and similar may lead to risk of injury, ignition or fire.

To avoid the possibility of injury
WARNING!
Do not operate the oven if it is damaged or
malfunctioning.
Check the following before use:
a) The door; make sure the door closes properly and
ensure it is not misaligned or warped.
b) The hinges and door safety latches; check to make
sure they are not broken or loose.
c) The door seals and sealing surfaces; ensure that they
have not been damaged.
d) Inside the oven cavity or on the door; make sure there
are no dents.
e) The power supply cord and plug; ensure that they are
not damaged.
Never adjust, repair or modify the oven yourself. It is
hazardous for anyone other than a competent person to
carry out any service or repair operation which involves
the removal of a cover which gives protection against
exposure to microwave energy.
Do not allow grease or dirt to build up on the door seals
and adjacent parts. Follow the instructions for “Care and
cleaning”. Clean the oven at regular intervals and remove
any food deposits. Failure to maintain the oven in a clean
condition could lead to a deterioration of the surface that
could adversely affect the life of the appliance and
possibly result in a hazardous situation.
Do not attempt to replace the oven lamp yourself or
allow anyone who is not authorised by ELECTROLUX
to do so. If the oven lamp fails, please consult your
dealer or call an authorised ELECTROLUX service
agent.

To avoid the possibility of explosion and sudden
boiling
WARNING!
Liquids and other foods must not be heated in
sealed containers since they are liable to explode.
Microwave heating of beverages can result in delayed
eruptive boiling, therefore care has to be taken when
handling the container.
Do not cook eggs in their shells and whole hard boiled
eggs should not be heated in microwave ovens since
they may explode even after microwave cooking has
ended. To cook or reheat eggs which have not been
scrambled or mixed, pierce the yolks and the whites, or
the eggs may explode. Shell and slice hard boiled eggs
before reheating them in the microwave oven.
To avoid burns, always test food temperature and stir
before serving and pay special attention to the
temperature of food and drink given to babies, children
or the elderly.
Keep children away from the door and accessible parts
that may become hot when the grill is in use. Children
should be kept away to prevent them burning
themselves. Do not touch the oven door, outer cabinet,
rear cabinet, oven cavity, ventilation openings,
accessories and dishes during GRILL mode, DUAL
GRILL mode and AUTO COOK operation as they will
become hot. Before cleaning make sure they are not hot.
To avoid the misuse by children
WARNING!
The appliance and its accessible parts become hot
during use. Care should be taken to avoid
touching heating elements. Children less than 8

To avoid the danger of fire
The microwave oven should not be left
unattended during operation. Power levels
that are too high or cooking times that are too
long may overheat foods resulting in a fire. The
electrical outlet must be readily accessible so
that the unit can be unplugged easily in an
emergency. It is recommended that a separate
circuit serving only this appliance be provided.
Do not store or use the oven outdoors.
Do not place flammable materials near the
oven or ventilation openings. Do not block the
ventilation openings. Remove all metallic
seals, wire twists, etc., from food and food
packages. Arcing on metallic surfaces may
cause a fire. Do not use the microwave oven
to heat oil for deep frying. The temperature
cannot be controlled and the oil may catch
fire. To make popcorn, only use special
microwave popcorn makers. Do not store food
or any other items inside the oven. Check the
settings after you start the oven to ensure the
oven is operating as desired. Do not operate
the oven with the door open or alter the door
safety latches in any way. Do not operate the
oven if there is an object between the door
seals and sealing surfaces.
Individuals with PACEMAKERS should check
with their doctor or the manufacturer of the
pacemaker for precautions regarding
microwave ovens.
To avoid the possibility of electric shock
Under no circumstances should you remove
the outer cabinet. Never spill or insert any
objects into the door lock openings or
ventilation openings. In the event of a spill,
turn off and unplug the oven immediately and
call an authorised ELECTROLUX service
agent. Do not immerse the power supply cord
or plug in water or any other liquid. Do not
allow the power supply cord to run over any
years of age shall be kept away unless
continuously supervised.
This appliance can be used by children aged from 8
years and above and persons with reduced physical,
sensory or mental capabilities or lack of experience and
knowledge if they have been given supervision or
instruction concerning use of the appliance in a safe way
and understand the hazards involved. Children should
be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the
appliance. Cleaning and user maintenance shall not be
made by children unless they are aged from 8 years and
above and supervised.
This appliance is intended to be used in household and
similar applications such as: staff kitchen areas in shops,
offices and other working environments; farm houses; by
clients in hotels, motels and other residential
environments; bed and breakfast type environments.
This appliance is not intended for use at altitudes above
2000m.

hot or sharp surfaces, such as the hot air vent
area at the top rear of the oven.
If the power supply cord of this appliance is
damaged, it must be replaced with a special
cord. The exchange must be made by an
authorised ELECTROLUX service agent.
To avoid the possibility of explosion and
sudden boiling
Never use sealed containers. Remove seals
and lids before use. Sealed containers can
explode due to a build up of pressure even
after the oven has been turned off. Take care
when microwaving liquids. Use a wide-
mouthed container to allow bubbles to escape.
To prevent sudden eruption of boiling liquid
and possible scalding:
• Stir liquid prior to heating/reheating.
• It is advisable to insert a glass rod or similar
utensil into the liquid whilst reheating.
• Let liquid stand for at least 20 seconds in
the oven at the end of cooking time to
prevent delayed eruptive boiling.
Pierce the skin of such foods as potatoes,
sausages and fruit before cooking, or they
may explode.
To avoid the possibility of burns
Use pot holders or oven gloves when
removing food from the oven to prevent burns.
Always open containers, popcorn makers,
oven cooking bags, etc., away from the face
and hands to avoid steam burns.
Temperature of the container is not a true
indication of the temperature of the food or
drink; always check the food temperature.
Always stand back from the oven door when
opening to avoid burns from escaping steam
and heat. Slice stuffed baked foods after
heating to release steam and avoid burns.
Do not lean or swing on the oven door. Do not
play with the oven or use it as a toy. Children
should be taught all important safety
instructions: use of pot holders, careful
removal of food coverings; paying special
attention to packaging (e.g. self-heating
materials) designed to make food crisp, as
they may be extra hot.
Other warnings
Never modify the oven in any way. This oven is
for home food preparation only and may only
be used for cooking food. It is not suitable for
commercial or laboratory use.
To promote trouble-free use of your
oven and avoid damage
Never operate the oven when it is empty
except where recommended in the operation
manual. Doing so may damage the oven.
When using a browning dish or self-heating
material, always place a heat-resistant
insulator such as a porcelain plate under it to
prevent damage to the turntable and turntable
support due to heat stress. The preheating
time specified in the dish’s instructions must
not be exceeded. Do not use metal utensils,
which reflect microwaves and may cause
electrical arcing. Do not put cans in the oven.
Only use the turntable and the turntable
support designed for this oven. Do not
operate the oven without the turntable.
To prevent the turntable from breaking:
• Before cleaning the turntable with water,
leave the turntable to cool.
• Do not put hot foods or hot utensils on a
cold turntable.
• Do not put cold foods or cold utensils on
a hot turntable.
Do not place anything on the outer cabinet
during operation. Do not use plastic
containers for microwaving if the oven is still
hot from using the GRILL mode, DUAL GRILL
mode and AUTO COOK operation because
they may melt. Plastic containers must not be
used during above modes unless the
container manufacturer says they are suitable.
IMPORTANT! If you are unsure how to
connect your oven, please consult an
authorised, qualified electrician.
Neither the manufacturer nor the dealer can
accept any liability for damage to the oven or
personal injury resulting from failure to
observe the correct electrical connection
procedure. Water vapour or drops may
occasionally form on the oven walls or around
the door seals and sealing surfaces. This is a
normal occurrence and is not an indication of
microwave leakage or a malfunction.

Microwave cooking advice
Microwave cooking advice
Composition Foods high in fat or sugar (e.g. Christmas pudding, mince pies) require less heating
time. Care should be taken as overheating can lead to fire.
Size For even cooking make all the pieces the same size.
Temperature of food The initial temperature of food affects the amount of cooking time needed. Cut into
foods with fillings (e.g. jam doughnuts) to release heat or steam.
Arrange Place the thickest parts of food towards the outside of the dish (e.g. chicken
drumsticks).
Cover Use vented microwave cling film or a suitable lid.
Pierce Foods with a shell, skin or membrane must be pierced in several places before
cooking or reheating as steam will build up and may cause food to explode (e.g.
potatoes, fish, chicken, sausages).
IMPORTANT! Eggs should not be heated using microwave power as they
may explode, even after cooking has ended (e.g. poached, hard boiled).
Stir, turn and
rearrange
For even cooking it is essential to stir, turn and rearrange food during cooking.
Always stir and rearrange from the outside towards the centre.
Stand Standing time is necessary after cooking to enable the heat to disperse equally
throughout the food.
Shield Warm areas can be shielded with small pieces of foil, which reflect microwaves
(e.g. legs and wings on a chicken).
Microwave cooking
Your oven has 6 power levels.
Power setting Suggested use
900 W/HIGH Used for fast cooking or reheating (e.g. soup, casseroles, canned food, hot
beverages, vegetables, fish).
630 W Used for longer cooking of dense foods such as roast joints, meat loaf and plated
meals, also for sensitive dishes such as cheese sauce and sponge cakes. At this
reduced setting, the sauce will not boil over and food will cook evenly without over
cooking at the sides.
450 W For dense foods which require a long cooking time when cooked conventionally
(e.g. beef dishes) it is advisable to use this power setting to ensure the meat will be
tender.
270 W/DEFROST To defrost, select this power setting, to ensure that the dish defrosts evenly. This
setting is also ideal for simmering rice, pasta, dumplings and cooking egg custard.
90 W For gentle defrosting (e.g. cream gateaux or pastry).
0 W For standing/kitchen timer.
W = WATT

Care and cleaning
CAUTION!
DO NOT USE COMMERCIAL OVEN
CLEANERS, STEAM CLEANERS,
ABRASIVE, HARSH CLEANERS, ANY THAT
CONTAIN SODIUM HYDROXIDE OR
SCOURING PADS ON ANY PART OF
YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN.
CLEAN THE OVEN AT REGULAR
INTERVALS AND REMOVE ANY FOOD
DEPOSITS. Failure to maintain the oven in a
clean condition could lead to a deterioration
of the surface that could adversely affect the
life of the appliance and possibly result in a
hazardous situation.
Oven exterior
The outside of your oven can be cleaned
easily with mild soap and water. Make sure
the soap is wiped off with a moist cloth, and
dry the exterior with a soft towel.
Control panel
Open the door before cleaning to de-activate
the control panel. Care should be taken when
cleaning the control panel. Using a cloth
dampened with water only, gently wipe the
panel until it becomes clean. Avoid using
excessive amounts of water. Do not use any
sort of chemical or abrasive cleaner.
Oven interior
For cleaning, wipe any splatters or spills with
a soft damp cloth or sponge after each use
while the oven is still warm. For heavier spills,
use a mild soap and wipe several times with a
damp cloth until all residues are removed. Do
not remove the waveguide cover.
Make sure that mild soap or water does not
penetrate the small vents in the walls which
may cause damage to the oven.
Do not use spray type cleaners on the oven
interior.
Heat up your oven regularly by using the grill.
Remaining food or fat splashed can cause
smoke or a bad smell.
Turntable and turntable support
Remove the turntable and turntable support
from the oven. Wash the turntable and
turntable support in mild soapy water. Dry
with a soft cloth. Both the turntable and the
turntable support are dishwasher safe.
Door
To remove all trace of dirt, regularly clean both
sides of the door, the door seals and sealing
surfaces with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use
harsh abrasive cleaners or sharp metal
scrapers to clean the oven door glass since
they can scratch the surface, which may
result in shattering of the glass.
Racks
These should be washed in a mild washing
up liquid solution and dried. The racks are
dishwasher safe.
IMPORTANT! A steam cleaner should
not be used.
