Important safety instructions
Read carefully and keep for future reference

1 Do not attempt to tamper with, or make any adjustments or repairs to the

door, control panel, safety interlock switches or any other part of the oven.
It is hazardous for anyone to carry out any service or repair operation
which involves the removal of any cover which gives protection against
exposure to microwave energy. Repairs should only be undertaken by a
qualified service technician.

2 Do not operate the oven when empty. It is best to leave a glass of water in

the oven when not in use. The water will safely absorb all microwave
energy, if the oven is accidentally started.

3 Do not use the oven for the purpose of dehumidification. It can be the cause

of serious damage of safety. (ex. Operating the microwave oven with the
wet newspapers, clothes, toys, pet or portable electric devices, etc.)

4 Do not cook food wrapped in paper towels, unless your cook book contains

instructions, for the food you are cooking.

5 Do not use newspaper in place of paper towels for cooking.
6 Do not use wooden containers. They may heat-up and char. Do not use

ceramic containers which have metallic (e.g. gold or silver) inlays. Always
remove metal twist ties. Metal objects in the oven may arc, which can cause
serious damage.

7 Do not operate the oven with a kitchen towel, a napkin or any other

obstruction between the door and the front edges of the oven, which may
cause microwave energy leakage.

8 Do not use recycled paper products since they may contain impurities which

may cause sparks and/or fires when used in cooking.

9 Do not rinse the turntable by placing it in water just after cooking. This may

cause breakage or damage.

10 Small amounts of food require shorter cooking or heating time. If normal

times are allowed they may overheat and burn.

11 Be certain to place the oven so the front of the door is 8 cm or more

behind the edge of the surface on which it is placed, to avoid accidental
tipping of the appliance.
