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 to prevent them
burning themselves.
To avoid the misuse by children
WARNING!
The appliance and its accessible parts become
hot during use. Children less than 8 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.

www.zanussi.com
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.
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
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.
1_Zanussi_EN240_MS_AE25_Layout 1 13/09/2016 10:58 Page 5
Page: 5
6 www.zanussi.com
• 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.
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.
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
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
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).

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.
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.
IMPORTANT! A steam cleaner should
not be used.

Troubleshooting
Problem Check if...
The microwave appliance is not
working properly?
• The fuses in the fuse box are working.
• There has not been a power outage.
• If the fuses continue to blow, please contact a qualified electrician.
The microwave mode is not
working?
• The door is properly closed.
• The door seals and their surfaces are clean.
• The START/+30 button has been pressed.
The turntable is not turning? • The turntable support is correctly connected to the drive.
• The ovenware does not extend beyond the turntable.
• Food does not extend beyond the edge of the turntable preventing it
from rotating.
• There is nothing in the well beneath the turntable.
The microwave will not switch
off?
• Isolate the appliance from the fuse box.
• Call an authorised ELECTROLUX service agent.
The interior light is not working? • Call your authorised ELECTROLUX service agent. The interior light
bulb can be exchanged only by a trained authorised ELECTROLUX
service agent.
The food is taking longer to heat
through and cook than before?
• Set a longer cooking time (double quantity = nearly double time) or
• If the food is colder than usual, rotate or turn from time to time or
• Set a higher power setting.

Connecting the appliance to the power
supply
• The electrical outlet should be readily
accessible so that the unit can be
unplugged easily in an emergency. Or it
should be possible to isolate the oven from
the supply by incorporating a switch in the
fixed wiring in accordance with the wiring
rules.
• The socket should not be positioned
behind the cupboard.
• The best position is above the cupboard,
see (A).
• Connect the appliance to a single phase
230-240V/50 Hz alternating current via a
correctly installed earth socket.
• The power supply cord may only be
replaced by an electrician.
• If the appliance is to be operated in a
non-European country, the supply voltage,
current type and frequency of the
appliance indicated on the rating plate
must correspond with the specification of
your power supply. The rating plate can be
found on the inside face of the control
panel.
• Before installing, tie a piece of string to the
power supply cord to facilitate connection
to point (A) when the appliance is being
installed.
• When inserting the appliance into the
high-sided cupboard, DO NOT crush the
power supply cord.
• Do not immerse the power supply cord or
plug in water or any other liquid.
