To reduce the risk of burns, electric shock, fire, injury to persons, or exposure to excessive microwave energy:
[] Do not operate the microwave oven if it has a damaged cord or plug, if it is not working properly, or if it has been damaged or dropped. The microwave oven should be serviced only by qualified service personnel. Call an authorized service company for examination, repair, or adjustment. See door surface cleaning instructions in the "Microwave Oven Care" section. To reduce the risk of fire in the oven cavity: - Do not overcook food. Carefully attend the microwave oven if paper, plastic, or other combustible materials are placed inside the oven to facilitate cooking. - Remove wire twist-ties from paper or plastic bags before placing bags in oven. - If materials inside the oven should ignite, keep oven door closed, turn oven off, and disconnect the power cord, or shut off power at the fuse or circuit breaker panel. - Do not use the cavity for storage purposes. Do not leave paper products, cooking utensils, or food in the cavity when not in use.
[] Read all instructions before using the microwave oven. [] Read and follow the specific "PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID POSSIBLE EXPOSURE TO EXCESSIVE MICROWAVE ENERGY" found in this section. [] The microwave oven must be grounded. Connect only to properly grounded outlet. See "GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS" found in this section and in the provided Installation Instructions. [] Install or locate the microwave oven only in accordance with the provided Installation Instructions. [] Some products such as whole eggs in the shell and sealed containers - for example, closed glass jars may explode and should not be heated in the microwave oven. [] Use the microwave oven only for its intended use as described in this manual. Do not use corrosive chemicals or vapors in the microwave oven. This type of oven is specifically designed to heat, cook, or dry food. It is not designed for industrial or laboratory use. [] As with any appliance, close supervision is necessary when used by children.


[] Suitable for use above both gas and electric cooking equipment. [] Intended to be used above ranges with maximum width of 36 inches. [] Clean Ventilating Hoods Frequently - Grease should not be allowed to accumulate on hood or filter. [] Oversized foods or oversized metal utensils should not be inserted in the microwave oven as they may create a fire or risk of electric shock. [] Do not clean with metal scouring pads. Pieces can burn off the pad and touch electrical parts involving a risk of electric shock. [] Do not use paper products when appliance is operated in the "PAN BROWN" mode (on models with this feature). [] Do not store any materials, other than manufacturer's recommended accessories, in this oven when not in use. [] Do not store anything directly on top of the microwave oven when the microwave oven is in operation. [] When flaming foods under the hood, turn the fan on. [] Use care when cleaning the vent-hood filter. Corrosive cleaning agents, such as lye-based oven cleaners, may damage the filter. [] Do not cover or block any openings on the microwave oven. [] Do not store this microwave oven outdoors. Do not use the microwave oven near water - for example, near a kitchen sink, in a wet basement, or near a swimming pool, and the like. [] Do not immerse cord or plug in water. [] Keep cord away from heated surfaces. [] Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter. [] Do not mount over a sink.

[] For all cord connected appliances: The microwave oven must be grounded. In the event of an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric current. The microwave oven is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an outlet that is properly installed and grounded.
Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of electric shock. Consult a qualified electrician or serviceman if the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if doubt exists as to whether the microwave oven is properly grounded. Do not use an extension cord. If the power supply cord is too short, have a qualified electrician or serviceman install an outlet near the microwave oven. [] For a permanently connected appliance: This appliance must be connected to a grounded, metallic, permanent wiring system, or an equipment grounding conductor should be run with the circuit conductors and connected to the equipment grounding terminal or lead on the appliance.

A magnetron in the oven produces microwaves which reflect off the metal floor, walls and ceiling and pass through the turntable and appropriate cookware to the food. Microwaves are attracted to and absorbed by fat, sugar and water molecules in the food, causing them to move, producing friction and heat which cooks the food. Never lean on or allow children to swing on the oven door. Do not operate microwave oven when it is empty. Heated liquids can splash out during and after heating. Use of a wooden stir stick placed in the cup or bowl during heating may help to avoid this. The turntable must be in place and correct side up when oven is in use. Do not use if turntable is chipped or broken. See "Assistance or Service" section to reorder. Baby bottles and baby food jars should not be heated in the oven. Clothes, flowers, fruit, herbs, wood, gourds, paper, including brown paper bags and newspaper should not be dried in the oven. Do not use the microwave oven for canning, sterilizing or deep frying. The oven cannot maintain appropriate temperatures. Paraffin wax will not melt in the oven because it does not absorb microwaves. Use oven mitts or pot holders when removing containers from oven. Do not overcook potatoes. At the end of the recommended cook time, potatoes should be slightly firm. Let potatoes stand for 5 minutes. They will finish cooking while standing. Do not cook or reheat whole eggs inside the shell. Steam buildup in whole eggs may cause them to burst. Cover poached eggs and allow a standing time.

The length of time can be changed during the countdown repeating the above steps.
The Child Lock shuts down the control panel pads to prevent unintended use of the microwave oven. When the control is locked, only the Vent Fan and Light pads will function. To Lock/Unlock Control: The microwave oven and Timer must be off. Touch and hold START for 5 seconds until 2 tones sound and a lock icon appears on the display. Repeat to unlock and remove the lock icon from display.
The vent fan has 2 speeds: high and low. To protect the microwave oven, if the temperature from the range or cooktop below the microwave oven gets too hot, the vent fan will automatically turn on. It may stay on for up to 1 hour to cool the microwave oven. When this occurs, the Vent Fan pad will not function. To Turn Vent Fan On/Off: Touch VENT FAN HIGH/LOW/OFF once for HIGH, twice for LOW or 3 times for OFE pad
The cooktop light has 3 settings: on, night and off. To Turn On/Night/Off: Touch LIGHT ON-NIGHT,OFF to cycle through settings. repeatedly When microwave cooking, the amount, size and shape, starting temperature, composition and density of the food affect cooking results. Amount of Food The more food heated at once, the longer the cook time. Check for doneness and add small increments of time if necessary. Size and Shape Smaller pieces of food will cook more quickly than larger pieces and uniformly shaped foods cook more evenly than irregularly shaped food.
Starting Temperature Room temperature foods will heat faster than refrigerated foods and refrigerated foods will heat faster than frozen foods. Composition and Density Foods high in fat and sugar will reach a higher temperature and heat faster than other foods. Heavy, dense foods, such as meat and potatoes, require a longer cook time than the same size of a light, porous food, such as cake.

Use non-recycled and those approved by the manufacturer for microwave oven use. Use those approved by the manufacturer for microwave oven use.
Covering Covering food helps retain moisture, shorten cook time and reduce spattering. Use the lid supplied with cookware. If a lid is not available, wax paper, paper towels or plastic wrap approved for microwave ovens may be used. Plastic wrap should be turned back at one corner to provide an opening to vent steam. Stirring and Turning Stirring and turning redistributes heat evenly to avoid overcooking the outer edges of food. Stir from outside to center. If possible, turn food over from bottom to top. Arranging If heating irregularly shaped or different sized foods, the thinner parts and smaller sizes should be arranged toward the center. If cooking several items of the same size and shape, place them in a ring pattern, leaving the center of the ring empty. Piercing Before heating, use a fork or small knife to pierce or prick foods that have a skin or membrane, such as potatoes, egg yolks, chicken livers, hot dogs, and sausage. Prick in several places to allow steam to vent. Shielding Use small, flat pieces of aluminum foil to shield the thin pieces of irregularly shaped foods, bones and foods such as chicken wings, leg tips and fish tail. See "Aluminum Foil and Metal" first. Standing Time Food will continue to cook by the natural conduction of heat even after the microwave cycle ends. The length of standing time depends on the volume and density of the food.

For best performance, use no more than three 90 elbows. To calculate the length of system you need, add the equivalent feet for each vent piece used in the system. See examples below. 3-1/4" x 10" vent system
3-1/4" x 10" 90 elbow 6 ft. wall cap
Recommended standard fittings
3-1/4" x 10" to 6" = 5 ft.
3-1/4" x 10" roof cap = 24 ft.
3-1/4" x 10" 90 elbow = 25 ft.

90 elbow = 10 ft.

3-1/4" x 10" wall cap = 40 ft.

45 elbow = 5 ft.

3-1/4" x 10" flat elbow = 10 ft.
For wall or roof venting methods: If the wall exhaust method is chosen, be sure that there is proper clearance within the wall for the exhaust vent. Wall and roof caps must have back-draft damper. We recommend: using rigid metal vent. that length of vent and number of elbows should be kept to a minimum to provide efficient performance. that size of vent should be uniform. using duct tape to seal all joints in the vent system. using caulking compound to seal exterior wall or roof opening around cap. two elbows should not be installed together. We do NOT recommend: flexible metal vent. NOTE: If flexible metal vent must be used, calculate each foot of flexible metal vent as two feet of rigid metal vent. Flexible metal elbows count twice as much as standard elbows.

If the existing vent is round, a rectangularto-round adapter must be used and a rectangular 3" extension vent between the damper assembly and the adapter must be installed to prevent sticking of the exhaust damper.
