2 zanussi Contents Safety information 2 Product description 8 Accessories 9 Before first use 10 Operation 11 Care and cleaning 14 Technical data 15 Installation 16 Environmental information 18 European guarantee 19 Safety information The built-in safety interlock switches prevent the microwave oven from operating when the door is open. Do not tamper with them, or attempt to operate the oven with the door open as open door operation can result in exposure to microwave energy. Do not allow food spills or cleaner residue to accumulate on door sealing surfaces. See the Cleaning and Care section for cleaning instructions. It is particularly important that the oven door closes properly and that there is no damage to the: (1) door (warped), (2) hinges and latches (broken or insecure), (3) door seals and sealing surface. Warning: If the door, hinges/latches or door seals are damaged, the microwave must not be operated until it has been repaired by an authorized service person. Warning: It is hazardous for anyone except factory trained service personnel to service or make adjustments to this oven. Contact your nearest authorised service agent if service should be required. Do not remove the outer case, door or control panel at any time. Doing so may cause exposure to extremely high voltage. Install or locate this oven only in accordance with ‘installation instructions’ found in this manual. Use the appliance for its intended use as described in this manual. Do not use corrosive chemicals in this appliance. This type of oven is specifically designed to heat, cook, or defrost food. It is not designed for industrial or laboratory use neither for commercial use as this will invalidate the guarantee. Do not operate the oven empty. If food or water is not present to absorb the
zanussi 3 microwave energy, the magnetron tube can be damaged. Do not store this appliance outdoors. Do not use this product near water. Do not attempt to dry clothing or newspapers in the microwave oven. These items can ignite. Do not use the cavity for storage purposes. Do not leave paper products, cooking utensils, or food in the cavity when not in use. Microwave oven is a Group 2 ISM equipment in which radio frequency energy is intentionally generated and used in the form of electromagnetic radiation for the treatment of material. This oven is a Class B equipment suitable for use in domestic establishments and in establishments directly connected to a low voltage power supply network which supplies buildings used for domestic purposes. The microwave oven shall not be placed in a cabinet unless it has been tested in a cabinet. Warning: If smoke is observed, switch off or unplug the appliance and keep the door closed in order to stifle any flames. Never use water. Warning: Only allow children or infirm persons to use the microwave, without supervision, when adequate instructions have been given so that the child or infirm person is able to use the microwave in a safe way and understand the hazards of improper use. It is quite normal for steam to be emitted around the door, or for misting to occur on the door, or even for water droplets to appear below the door during the cooking cycle. This is merely condensation from the heat of the food and does not affect the safety of your oven. The door is not intended to seal the oven cavity completely. Do not force the turntable to rotate by hand. This may cause malfunctioning. Arcing in the oven during microwave operation usually occurs from use of metallic utensils. Continuous arcing, however, can damage the unit. Stop the programme and check the utensil. Care should be taken not to obstruct any air vents located on the top, rear, side and bottom of the oven.
4 zanussi Warning: Do not use this oven for commercial purposes. This oven is made for domestic use only. Unpacking When you unpack the oven, check that the product is free from damage. Damage or any missing parts must be reported immediately to the retailer. The oven, parts of the oven or the accessories may be wrapped by a protection foil. If so, you must remove this foil before using the oven. Do not leave packing material so that small children can play with it. This can be hazardous. Utensil safety Most glass, glass ceramic and heat- resistant glassware utensils are excellent for use in the microwave oven. Although microwave energy will not heat most glass and ceramic items, these utensils can become hot as heat transfers from the food to the container. The use of oven gloves to remove dishes is recommended. Oven utensils and accessories guide A variety of Utensils and Materials may be used for cooking in your microwave oven. For your safety and to prevent damaging utensils and your oven choose appropriate utensils and materials for each cooking method. The list below is a general guide. Mode of operation Material Utensils Microwave Ceramic & Glass Corning ware YES Heat resistant glass ware YES*1 Glass ware with metal decoration NO Lead crystal glass NO China Without metal decoration YES Pottery*2 YES
zanussi 5 Plastic Microwave oven heat-proof wear YES Plastic wrap YES Metal Baking pan NO Aluminium foil*3 YES Paper Cups, plates, towels YES Waxed paper YES Wood NO Accessories Grill rack NO Turntable YES YES: Utensils and accessories to use NO: Utensils and accessories to avoid *1 Only if there is no metal trim. *2 Only if it does not have a glaze containing metal. *3 Use aluminium foil only for shielding purposes, over use may cause arcing. Testing suitability of cookware Utensils should be checked to ensure they are suitable for use in Microwave Ovens. Place the cookware in the microwave along with a glass half full of water. Heat on full power for one minute. If the cookware feels hot, you should not use it. If it is just slightly warm, you can use it for reheating but not for cooking. If the dish is room temperature, it is suitable for microwave cooking. Paper napkins, wax paper, paper towels, plates, cups, cartons, freezer wrap and cardboard are great convenience utensils. Always be sure containers are filled with food to absorb energy and thus avoid the possibility of overheating or ignition. Many plastic dishes, cups, freezer containers and plastic wraps may be used in the microwave oven. Follow manufacturer’s instructions when using plastics in the oven. Avoid using plastic utensils with foods that have high fat or sugar content since these foods reach high temperatures and could melt some plastics. Do not leave oven unattended, and look at it from time to time when heating or cooking food in plastic, paper or other combustible containers. Metal utensils and utensils with metallic trim should not be used in the microwave oven, unless specifically recommended for microwave use.
6 zanussi Containers with restricted openings, such as bottles, should not be used for microwave cooking. Use caution when removing a lid or cover from a dish to avoid steam burns. Foil containers Shallow foil containers may safely be used to reheat foods in your microwave oven providing the following rules are observed: Foil containers should not be more than 3 cms (1 1/4”) deep. Foil lids must not be used. The foil containers must be at least two- thirds full of food. Empty containers must never be used. Foil containers should be used singly in the microwave oven and should not be allowed to touch the sides. If your oven has a metal turntable or cooking rack, the foil container should be placed on an upturned ovenproof plate. Foil containers should never be re-used in the microwave oven. If the microwave oven has been in use for 15 minutes or more, allow it to cool before using it again. The container and turntable may become hot during use; take great care when removing either from the oven. It is advisable to use an oven cloth or glove when doing so. Remember when using an aluminium foil container that the reheating or cooking times may be longer than you are used to, always ensure that the food is piping hot before serving. Food safety Do not heat food in a can in the microwave oven. Always remove the food to a suitable container. Deep fat frying should not be done in the microwave oven, because the fat temperature cannot be controlled, hazardous situations can result. Popcorn may be prepared in the microwave oven, but only in special packages or utensils designed specifically for this purpose. This cooking operation should never be unattended. Pierce foods with non-porous skins or membranes to prevent steam build-up and bursting. Apples, potatoes, chicken livers, and egg yolks are examples of items that should be pierced. The contents of feeding bottles and baby food jars are to be stirred or shaken and the temperature is to be checked before consumption, in order to avoid burns.
zanussi 7 Warning: Liquids or other foods must not be heated in sealed containers since they are liable to explode. Warning: Microwave heating of beverages can result in delayed eruptive boiling; therefore care must be taken when handling the container. Warning: When heating liquids, e.g. soups, sauces and beverages 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: Avoid using straight-sided containers with narrow necks. Do not overheat. Stir the liquid before placing the container in the oven and again halfway through the heating time. After heating, allow standing in the oven for a short time, stirring again before carefully removing the container. Warning: Some products such as whole eggs and sealed containers – for example, closed glass jars – may explode and should not be heated in this oven. Occasionally, poached eggs may explode during cooking. Always pierce the yolk, then cover and allow the standing time of one minute before removing cover.

14 zanussi Care and cleaning The oven must always be clean. Residue of food from spillovers or spatters will attract microwave energy causing it to burn on. This could reduce the efficiency of the oven and may cause bad odours. Do not attempt to tamper with or make any adjustments or repairs to any part of the oven. Repairs should only be done by a qualified service technician. Be sure the oven is off or the unit is unplugged before cleaning. Cleaning the accessories (turntable, support and Grill rack) Clean them with mild detergent after removing them for the cavity. Turntable support should be carefully handled. The inside of the oven and turntable get very hot; so do not touch them immediately after use. Cleaning the interior Always keep the inside of the oven clean. Wipe up spillovers and food spatters immediately. Deposits that are allowed to remain on the oven walls, door seal and door surface will absorb microwave energy, reduce the efficiency of the oven, and possibly damage the oven interior. Use mild, liquid detergent, warm water and a soft, clean cloth to remove deposits from the base of the oven. For the side of the oven use a soft damp cloth only, no liquids should be used near the venting holes. Never use abrasive cleaners, commercial oven cleaners or steel wool pads on any part of the microwave oven. To loosen difficult deposits, boil a cup of water in the microwave oven for 2 or 3 minutes. Never use a knife or any utensil to remove deposits from the oven surfaces. To remove odours from the oven interior, boil a cup of water plus 2 tablespoons of lemon juice for 5 minutes. Cleaning the door seals Wipe up spillovers and food spatters immediately. Deposits that are allowed to remain on the door seals will absorb microwave energy, reduce the efficiency of the oven, and possibly damage the
zanussi 15 oven interior. You can only use mild, liquid detergent, warm water and a soft, clean cloth to remove deposits from the door seals. Cleaning the exterior Open the oven door when cleaning the control panel. This will prevent the oven from being turned on accidentally. You should clean outside surfaces of the oven with mild liquid detergent and water followed by a wiping with clear water to remove any excess detergent. Dry with a soft cloth. Spray-on window cleaners or all-purpose spray-on kitchen cleaners can also be used. Never use abrasive cleaners, scouring pads or harsh chemicals on outside surfaces of your oven. To prevent damage to the working parts, do not allow water to seep into ventilation openings.
