Inspect the Oven:

Check the oven carefully for damage
before and regularly after installation.

• Make sure the door closes properly,

that it is not misaligned or warped.

• Check the hinges and door safety

latches are not broken or loose.

• If the door or door seals are damaged,

the oven must not be operated until it has
been repaired by a competent person.

• Inspect the oven interior and door for dents.

If any damage is apparent, do not
operate the oven in any way. Contact
your dealer or an authorised Service
Technician appointed by SHARP.

1.Remove all packing materials including the feature

sticker. Do not remove the plastic film from the inside
of the oven window as this protects it from dirt.




Oven Use:
• The oven is for domestic food preparation only.

Never operate when empty, except as directed in the
operation manual (see page 5).

• Do not leave or store anything inside the oven when

not in use.

• Never attempt to use the oven with the door open. It

is important not to defeat or tamper with the door
safety latches. This may result in exposure to
microwave energy.

• Never operate the oven with any object caught in the

door sealing surfaces, this again may cause
microwave leakage.

• Do not insert fingers or objects in the holes of the door

latches or air-vent openings as this may damage the
oven and cause an electric shock.

• If water or food drops inside the air vent openings

switch off the oven immediately, unplug it and call a
Service Technician appointed by SHARP.

• Never attempt to move the oven while it is operating.
• Do not hold the lower grill heater up other than for


2.Place oven on a secure, level surface, strong enough

to take the oven weight, plus the heaviest item likely
to be cooked in the oven.

3.Do not place the oven where heat, moisture or high

humidity are generated, (for example, near or
above a conventional oven) or near combustible
materials (for example, curtains). Do not block or
obstruct air vent openings, as obstructions may
ignite due to the emission of hot air.

4. The oven door may become hot during cooking.

The oven must be
placed on a flat
stable surface
85cm above floor
level with a
minimum of free
space above the
oven of 19cm. This oven has been specifically
designed to be operated away from the wall with
a minimum clearance of 15mm between one side
of the oven and adjacent wall. The other side of
the oven should be left clear of any obstruction.




Do not allow anyone to play with the oven, or lean or
swing on the oven door.
Pacemaker: If you have a heart pacemaker, consult
your doctor or the pacemaker manufacturer prior to
oven use.

Fire: If smoke is observed, switch off and
unplug the appliance and keep the door
closed in order to stifle any flames.

Microwave heating of beverages can
result in delayed eruptive boiling,
therefore care has to be taken when
handling the container; stir liquid prior
to and during heating/reheating, let
liquid stand in the oven after heating.

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.
