Do not attempt to repair or disassemble the appliance. There are no user serviceable parts.

Microwave heating of beverages can result in delayed eruptive boiling, therefore care has to be taken when handling the container. Do not place face directly over container when removing from oven. Do not fry food in the oven, hot oil can damage oven parts and utensils, and even result in skin burns. Eggs in their shell and whole hard-boiled eggs shall not be heated in the microwave oven since they may explode. Raw, cracked eggs may be cooked in microwave safe containers, but the yolk must be pierced. Pierce foods with heavy skins such as potatoes, whole squash, apples and chestnuts before cooking. 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. Cooking utensils may become hot because of heat transferred from the heated food. Potholders may be needed to handle the utensil. Utensils should be checked to ensure that they are suitable for use in microwave oven.

Utensil Test
Fill the utensil (or serving dish) to be tested with one cup of cold water. Microwave for 90 seconds at 100% power. If the water becomes warm and the utensil stays cool, it is safe to use. If the water stays cool and the utensil becomes very hot, it should not be used in the microwave.

Precautions to Avoid Possible Exposure to Excessive Microwave Energy

WARNING If the door or door seals are damaged, the oven must not be operated until it has been repaired by a qualified person. WARNING It is hazardous for anyone other than a qualified person to carry out any service or repair operation which involves the removal of any cover which gives protection against exposure to microwave energy. WARNING Liquids or other foods must not be heated in sealed containers since they are liable to explode. WARNING Only allow children to use the oven without supervision when adequate instructions have been given so that the child is able to use the oven in a safe way and understands the hazards of improper use.

Do not attempt to operate this oven with the door open since open-door operation can result in harmful exposure to microwave energy. It is important not to interfere or tamper with the safety interlocks. Do not place any object between the oven front face and the door or allow soil or cleaner residue to accumulate on sealing surfaces. Do not operate the oven if it is damaged. It is particularly important that the oven door closes properly and that there is no damage to the: 1. Door (bent), 2. Hinges and latches (broken or loosened), 3. Door seals and sealing surfaces. The oven should not be adjusted or repaired by anyone except properly qualified service personnel. If moving or transporting microwave, keep microwave well protected as rough treatment can cause damage.

Before You Call for Service

If the oven fails to operate:

COMPULSORY WARNING If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer or its service agent or similarly qualified person in order to avoid a hazard. This product has not been designed for any uses other than those specified in this booklet.

Check to ensure that the oven is plugged in securely to the power outlet. If it is not, remove the plug from the outlet, wait 10 seconds and plug it in again securely, and switch on. Check for a blown circuit fuse or a tripped main circuit breaker. If these seem to be operating properly, test the outlet with another appliance. Check to ensure that the control panel is programmed correctly and the timer is set. Check to ensure that the door is securely closed, engaging the door safety lock system, otherwise the microwave energy will not flow into the oven.

WARNING Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of electric shock. Note: If you have any questions about the grounding or electrical instructions, consult a qualified electrician or service person.

Make sure that all the packing materials are removed from the inside of the oven. Note: It is important not to remove or unscrew the panel from the inside right hand side of the microwave oven. Check the oven for any damage, such as misaligned or bent door, damaged door seals and sealing surface, broken or loose door hinges and latches and dents inside the cavity or on the door. If there is any damage, do not operate the oven, and return to the place of purchase. This microwave oven must be placed on a flat, stable surface to hold its weight and the heaviest food likely to be cooked in the oven. Do not place the oven where heat, moisture or high humidity are generated, or near combustible materials. For correct operation, the oven must have sufficient air flow. Allow 20cm of space above the oven, 10cm at back and 5cm at both sides. Do not cover or block any openings on the appliance. Do not remove feet. Do not operate the oven without glass tray, roller support, and shaft in their proper positions. Make sure that the power supply cord is undamaged and does not run under the oven or over any hot or sharp surface. The socket must be readily accessible so that it can be easily unplugged in an emergency.

Radio Interference

Operation of the microwave oven can cause interference to your radio, TV or similar equipment. When there is interference, it may be reduced or eliminated by taking the following measures:

1. Clean door and sealing surface of the oven. 2. Reorientate the receiving antenna of radio or television. 3. Relocate the microwave oven with respect to the receiver. 4. Move the microwave oven away from the receiver. 5. Plug the microwave oven into a different outlet so that microwave oven and receiver are on different branch circuits.

Microwave Cooking Principles

Arrange food carefully. Place thickest areas towards outside of dish. Watch cooking time. Cook for the shortest amount of time indicated and add more as needed. Food severely overcooked can smoke or ignite. Cover foods while cooking. Covers prevent spattering and help foods to cook evenly. Turn foods over once during microwaving to improve cooking of such foods as chicken and hamburgers. Large items like roasts must be turned over at least once.

Do not use the oven outdoors.

Grounding Instructions
This appliance must be grounded. This oven is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. It must be plugged into a wall receptacle that is properly installed and grounded. In the event of an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric current. 6

Rearrange foods such as meatballs halfway through cooking both from top to bottom and from the centre of the dish to the outside.

Control Panel

Utensils Guide

The ideal material for a microwave cooking utensil is transparent to microwaves as it allows energy to pass through the container and heat the food. Microwaves CANNOT penetrate metal, so metal utensils or dishes with a metallic trim must not be used. Use of metal utensils will damage the microwave oven. Do not use recycled paper products when microwave cooking, as they may contain small metal fragments which may cause sparks and/or fires. Round/oval dishes rather than square/oblong ones are recommended, as food in corners tends to overcook.

Care and Cleaning

Power Consumption
240V~ 50Hz, 1200W

Turn off the oven and remove the power plug from the wall socket before cleaning. Keep the inside of the oven clean. When food splatters or spilled liquids adhere to oven walls, wipe with a damp cloth. Mild detergent may be used if the oven gets very dirty. Avoid the use of spray and other harsh cleaners as they may stain, streak or dull the door surface. The oven door seal and adjacent parts should be wiped clean with a soft damp cloth, and a mild detergent if needed. The outside surfaces should be cleaned with a damp cloth. To prevent damage to the operating parts inside the oven, water should not be allowed to seep into the ventilation openings. Wipe the window on both sides with a damp cloth to remove any spills or splatters. Do not allow the control panel to become wet. Clean with a soft, damp cloth. When cleaning the control panel, leave door open to prevent oven from accidentally turning on. If steam accumulates inside or around the outside of the oven door, wipe with a soft cloth. This may occur when the microwave oven is operated under high humidity conditions. This is normal. It is occasionally necessary to remove the glass tray for cleaning. Wash the tray in warm sudsy water. The roller ring and the oven floor should be cleaned regularly to avoid excessive noise. Simply wipe the bottom surface of the oven with mild detergent. The roller ring may be washed in warm, sudsy water. When removing the roller ring from cavity floor for cleaning, be sure to replace in the proper position. Remove odours from your oven by combining a cup of water with the juice and skin of one lemon in a deep microwave safe bowl, microwave for 5 minutes. Wipe thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth.
