IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS



•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
"Caring for Your Microwave Oven" section.

•To reduce the risk of fire in the oven cavity:

- Do not overcook food. Carefully attend to the
microwave oven when 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 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.

•This Microwave Oven is suitable for use above
both gas and electric cooking and equipment.

•This Microwave Oven is intended to be used
above ranges with a maximum width of 36
inches (91 cm).

•Clean Ventilating Hoods frequently - grease
should not accumulate on hood or filter.

•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.

•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 break off the pad and touch electrical parts,
causing a risk of electric shock.



•Do not store anything directly on top of the
microwave oven when the microwave oven is in
operation.

•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,

•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.

•Do not cover any part of the oven with metal foil.
Doing so will cause overheating of the oven.

•Liquids such as water, coffee, or tea are able
to overheat beyond the boiling point without
appearing to be boiling due to surface tension of
the liquid. Visible bubbling or boiling when the
container is removed from the microwave oven is
not always present. This could result in very hot
liquids suddenly boiling over when a spoon or
other utensil is inserted into the liquid. To reduce
the risk of injury to persons:

1) Do not overheat the liquid.

2) Stir the liquid before and halfway through
heating it.

3) Do not use straight-sided containers with
narrow necks.

4) After heating, allow the container to stand
in the microwave oven for a short time
before removing the container.

5) Use extreme caution when inserting a spoon
or other utensil into the container.

ettinq to Know Your Microwa



This section discusses the concepts behind microwave cooking. It also shows the basics that you need to know in
order to operate your microwave oven. Please read this information before using your oven.



HOW YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN WORKS



s



Microwave ovens are safe. Microwave energy is not hot. It Magnetron
causes food to make its own heat, and it is this heat that cooks
the food.

Microwaves are like TV waves, radio waves, or light waves. You
cannot see them, but you can see the results of what they do.

A magnetron in the microwave oven produces microwaves. The
microwaves move into the oven where they contact food as it
turns on the turntable.

The glass turntable of your microwave oven lets microwaves
pass through. The microwaves then bounce off a metal floor,
back through the glass turntable, and are absorbed by the food.

Microwaves pass through most glass, paper, and plastics

without heating them, so food absorbs the energy. Microwaves bounce off metal containers so food does
not absorb the energy.

Metal floorG



lass turntable



1APIO INTERFERENCE

Using your microwave oven may cause interference to your radio, TV, or similar equipment. When there is
interference, you can reduce it or remove it by:
•Cleaning the door and sealing surfaces of the oven.
'Adjusting the receiving antenna of the radio or television.
•Moving the receiver away from the microwave oven.

•Plug the microwave oven into a different outlet so that the microwave oven and receiver are on different
branch circuits.



=OR THE BEST COOKING RESULTS

•Always cook food for the shortest cooking time recommended. Check to see how the food is cooking. If
needed, touch Add 30 Sec while the oven is operating, or after the cooking cycle is over (see the "Add
30 Sec" section).

•Stir, turn over, or rearrange the food being cooked about halfway through the cooking time for all
recipes. This will help ensure that the food is evenly cooked.

•If you do not have a cover for a dish, use wax paper, or microwave-approved paper towels or plastic
wrap. Remember to turn back a corner of the plastic wrap to vent steam during cooking.

COOKWARE GUIDE



Most heat resistant, nonmetallic cookware is safe for use in your microwave oven. However, f© test
cookware before using, follow these steps:

1. Place empty cookware in the microwave oven.

2. Measure 1 cup (250ml) of water in a glass measuring cup and place it in the oven beside
the cookware.

3. Microwave on 100% power for 1 minute. If the dish is warm, it should not be used for
microwave cooking.

NOTE:

Some dishes (melamine, some ceramic dinnerware, etc.) absorb microwave energy, becoming too hot to
handle and slowing cooking time. Cooking in metal containers, not designed for microwave use, could
damage the oven, as could containers with hidden metal (twist-ties, foil lining, staples, metallic
glaze or trim).



OPERATING SAFETY PRECAUTIONS



•Never lean or allow a child to swing on the door when it is open.

•Use hot pads. Microwave energy does not heat containers, but the heat from the food can make the
container hot.

•Do not use newspaper or other printed paper in the oven.

•Do not dry flowers, fruit, herbs, wood, paper, gourds, or clothes in the oven.

•Do not start a microwave oven when it is empty. This may shorten the life-span of the oven. To practice
programming, put a container of water in the oven before starting. It is normal for the oven door to look
wavy after the oven has been running for a while.

•Do not try to melt paraffin wax in the oven. Paraffin wax will not melt in a microwave oven because it
allows microwaves to pass through it.

•Do not operate the microwave oven unless the glass turntable is securely in place and can rotate freely.

The turntable can rotate in either direction. Make sure the turntable is correct-side up in the oven.

Handle your turntable with care when removing from the oven to avoid breaking it.
•When using a browning dish, the browning dish bottom must be at least 3/16 inch above the turntable.

Follow the directions supplied with the browning dish.

•Never cook or reheat a whole egg inside the shell. Steam buildup in whole eggs may cause them to
burst, and possibly damage the oven. Slice hard-boiled eggs before heating. In rare cases, poached eggs
have been known to explode. Cover poached eggs and allow a standing time of one minute before
cutting into them.

•For best results, stir any liquid several times during heating or reheating. Liquids heated in certain
containers (especially containers shaped like cylinders) may overheat. The liquid may splash during or
after heating or when adding ingredients (coffee granules, tea bags, etc.). This can harm you or damage
the microwave oven.

•Microwaves may not reach the center of a roast. The heat spreads from the outer to the center cooked
areas, just as in regular oven cooking. This is one of the reasons for letting some foods (for example,
roasts or baked potatoes) stand for a while after cooking, or for stirring some foods during the cooking
time.

•Do not deep fry in the oven. Microwavable utensils are not suitable and it is difficult to maintain
appropriate deep-frying temperatures.

•Do not overcook potatoes. At the end of the recommended cooking time, potatoes should be slightly firm
because they will continue cooking during standing time. After microwaving, let potatoes stand for 5
minutes. They will finish cooking while standing.



ELECTRICAL CONNECTION



If your electric power line or outlet voltage is less than 110 volts, cooking times may be longer. Have a
qualified electrician check your electrical system.

eC



Amount of Food

•If you increase or decrease the amount of food
you prepare, the time it takes to cook that food
will also change. For example, if you double a
recipe, add a little more than half the original
cooking time. Check for readiness and, if
necessary, add more time in small increments.

Starting Temperature of Food
•The lower the temperature of the food being
put into the microwave oven, the longer it takes
to cook. Food at room temperature will reheat
quicker than food at refrigerator temperature.

Composition of Food

•Food with a lot of fat and sugar will heat faster
than food containing a lot of water. Fat and sugar
will also reach a higher temperature than water in
the cooking process.

•The more dense the food, the longer it takes to
heat. "Very dense" food, like meat, takes longer to
heat than lighter, more porous food, like sponge
cakes.

Size and Shape

•Smaller pieces of food will cook faster than larger
pieces. Also, same shaped pieces cook more
evenly than differently shaped pieces.

•With foods that have different thicknesses, the

thinner parts will cook faster than the thicker
parts. Place the thinner parts of chicken wings and
legs in the center of the dish.

Stirring and Turning Foods

•Stirring and turning foods spreads heat quickly to
the center of the dish and avoids overcooking at
the outer edges of the food.

Covering Food

Cover food to reduce splattering, shorten cooking
times, and keep food moist.

You can use any covering that lets microwaves pass
through. See "Getting to Know Your Microwave
Oven" for materials that microwaves will
pass through.



Releasing Pressure in Foods

•Several foods (for example: baked potatoes,
sausages, egg yolks, and some fruits) are tightly
covered by a skin or membrane. Steam can build
up under the membrane during cooking, causing
the food to burst. To relieve the pressure and
to prevent bursting, pierce these foods before
cooking with a fork, cocktail pick, or toothpick.

Using Standing Time

•Always allow food to stand, either in or out of
the oven, after cooking power stops. Standing
time after defrosting and cooking allows the
temperature to evenly spread throughout the
food, improving the cooking results. For inside
oven standing time, you can program " 0 " power
second stage of the cooking cycle. See Two-Stage
Cooking.

•The length of the standing time depends on how
much food you are cooking and how dense it is.
Sometimes it can be as short as the time it takes
to remove the food from the oven and take it to
the serving table. However, with a larger, denser
food item, the standing time may be as long as 10
minutes.

Arranging Food

For best results, place food evenly on the plate. You
can do this in several ways:

•If you are cooking several items of the same
food, such as baked potatoes, place them in a
ring pattern for uniform cooking.

•When cooking foods of uneven shapes or
thickness, such as chicken breasts, place the
smaller or thinner area of the food towards the
center of the dish where it will be heated last.

•Layer thin slices of meat on top of each other.

•When you cook or reheat whole fish, score the
skin - this prevents cracking.

•Do not let food or a container touch the top or
sides of the oven. This will prevent possible arcing.
Arcing is a spark that can cause damage to the
oven interior.



n



Using Aluminum Foil



NOTE: Metal containers should not be used in a microwave oven. There are, however, some exceptions. If you
have purchased food prepackaged in an aluminum foil container, refer to the instructions on the package.
When using aluminum foil containers, cooking times may be longer because microwaves will only penetrate
the top of the food. When using aluminum containers without package instructions, follow these guidelines:

•Place the container in a glass bowl and add some water so that it covers the bottom of the container;
no more than V4 in. (.64 cm) high. This ensures even heating of the container bottom.

•Always remove the lid to avoid damage to the oven.

•Use only undamaged containers.

•Do not use containers taller than 3^4 in. (1.9 cm).

•Container must be at least half filled.

•To avoid arcing, there must be a minimum V4 in. (.64 cm) between the aluminum container and the
walls of the oven and also between two aluminum containers.

•Always place the container on the turntable.

•Shield, with small pieces of aluminum foil, parts of food that may cook quickly; such as wing tips and
leg ends of poultry.

•Heating food in aluminum foil containers usually takes up to double the time compared to reheating
in plastic, glass, china, or paper containers. The time when food is ready will vary depending upon the
type of container used.

•Let food stand for 2 to 3 minutes after heating so that heat is spread evenly throughout container.
Cooking you should not do in your microwave oven

•Do not put canned foods in the oven. Closed glass jars may explode, resulting in damage to the oven.
•Do not use the microwave oven to sterilize objects (baby bottles, etc.). It is difficult to keep the oven at
the high temperature needed for sterilization.

SMART TOUCH SENSOR
OPERATION INSTRUCTION



SENSOR OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

Sensor took cooking allows you to cook most of
your favorite foods without selecting cooking
times and power levels. The oven automatically
determines required cooking time for each food
item. When the internal sensor detects a certain
amount of humidity coming from the food,
it will tell the oven how much longer to heat.
The display will show the remaining heating
time. For best results by Sensor, following these
recommendations:

•Food cooked with the sensor system should be
at normal storage temperature.

•The glass tray and outside of the container
should be dry to assure best cooking results.

•Foods should always be covered loosely with
microwavable plastic wrap, waxed paper
or a lid.

•Do not open the door or touch the STOP key
during the sensing time. When sensing time is
over, the oven beeps twice and the remaining
cooking time will appear in the display window.
At this time you can open the door to stir, turn
or rearrange the food.

Appropriate containers and coverings help assure
good Sensor Cooking results.

•Always use microwavable containers and cover
them with lids or vented plastic wrap.

•Never use tight-sealing plastic covers. They can
prevent steam from escaping and cause food to
overcook.

•Match the amount to the size of the container.
Fill containers at least half way for best results.

•Be sure that the outside of the cooking container
and the inside of the microwave oven are dry
before placing food in the oven. Beads of
moisture turning into steam can mislead
the sensor.



BAKED POTATO (EXAMPLE)



Sensor Cook allows you to cook most of your
favorite foods without selecting cooking times and
power levels. This oven automatically determines
required cooking times for each food item.

CUSTOM DEFROST

Three defrost sequences are preset in the oven.
The custom defrost feature provides you with
the best defrosting method for frozen foods.
The cooking guide will show you which defrost
sequence is recommended for the food you are
defrosting.

For added convenience, the custom defrost includes
a built-in beep mechanism that reminds you to
check, turn over, separate, or rearrange the food in
order to get the best defrost results. Three different
defrosting levels are provided:

1. MEAT

2. POULTRY

3. FISH



NOTE: When you touch the START pad, the display
changes to a defrost time count down. The oven will
beep during the DEFROST cycle. At this time, open
the door and turn, separate, or rearrange the food.
Remove any portions that have thawed. Return
frozen portions to the oven and touch START to
resume the defrost cycle.

OPERATING TIPS

•For best results, remove fish, shellfish, meat, and
poultry from its original closed paper or plastic
package (wrapper). Otherwise, the wrap will hold
steam and juice close to the foods, which can
cause the outer surface of the foods to cook.

•For best results, roll your ground meat into a ball
before freezing. During the DEFROST cycle, the
microwave will signal when it is time to turn the
meat over. Scrape off any excess frost from the
meat and continue defrosting.

•Place foods in a shallow container or on a
microwave roasting rack to catch drippings.

This table shows food type selections and the
weights you can set for each type. For best results,
loosen or remove covering on food.

DEFROSTING TIPS



TWO-STAGE COOKING



•When using Auto Defrost, the weight to be
entered is the net weight in pounds and tenths
of pounds (the weight of the food minus the
container).

•Before starting, make sure to remove any and
all metal twist-ties that often come with frozen
food bags, and replace them with strings or
elastic bands.

•Open containers, such as cartons, before
placing in the oven.

•Always slit or pierce plastic pouches or
packaging.

•If food is foil wrapped, remove foil and place it
in a suitable container.

•Slit the skin of skinned food, such as sausage.

•Bend plastic pouches of food to ensure even
defrosting.

•Always underestimate defrosting time. If
defrosted food is still icy in the center, return it
to the microwave oven for more defrosting.

•The length of defrosting time varies according
to how solidly the food is frozen.

•The shape of the package affects how quickly
food will defrost. Shallow packages will defrost
more quickly than a deep block.

•As food begins to defrost, separate the pieces.
Separated pieces defrost more easily.

•Use small pieces of aluminum foil to shield parts
of food such as chicken wings, leg tips, fish tails,
or areas that start to get warm. Make sure the
foil does not touch the sides, top, or bottom of
the oven. The foil can damage the oven lining.

•For better results, let food stand after defrosting.
(For more information on standing time, see the
"Microwave Cooking Tips" section).

•Turn over food during defrosting or standing time.
Break apart and remove food as required.



For best results, some recipes call for different
power levels during a cook cycle. You can
program your oven for two power level stages
during the cooking cycle.

Example: To set a 2-stage cook cycle.

MICROWAVE POWER LEVELS



For best results, some recipes call for different cook
powers. The lower the cook power, the slower the
cooking. Each number from 1 to 9 stands for a
different percentage of full cook power.

power each number pad stands for, and the cook
power name usually used.



It also tells you when to use each cook power.

other use. For inside oven standing time, you

microwave oven has been designed to vent
this steam.

Most cooking problems often are caused by little things that you can find and fix without tools of any
kind. Check the lists below and on the next page before calling for assistance or service. If you still need
help, call Sears Service at 1-800-4-MY-HOME.

MICROWAVE OVEN DOES NOT WORK



PROBLEM


CAUSE


Nothing works.


•The power supply cord is not plugged into a grounded 3 prong
outlet. (See the "Electrical Requirements" and "Electrical Connection"
sections)

•A household fuse has blown or a circuit breaker has tripped.
•The electric company has had a power failure.


The microwave oven will
not run.


•You are using the oven as a timer. Touch STOP to cancel
the Kitchen Timer.

•The door is not firmly closed and latched.

•You did not touch START.

•You did not follow directions exactly.

•An operation that you set earlier is still running. Touch STOP to cancel
that operation.


COOKING TIMES


PROBLEM


CAUSE

cooked enough.


•The electric supply to your home or wall outlets is low or lower than
normal. Your electric company can tell you if the line voltage is low.
Your electrician or service technician can tell you if the outlet
voltage is low.

•The cook power is not at the recommended setting.
• Refer to Cooking Tip chart.


The display shows a time
counting down but the
oven is not cooking.

TURNTABLE


PROBLEM


CAUSE


The turntable will not turn.


•The turntable is not correctly in place or the turntable could be in the
turntable "OFF" mode. The glass plate should be correct-side up and
sitting firmly on the center shaft.

•The support is not operating correctly. Remove the turntable and
restart the oven. If the support still does not move, call Sears Service
