PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID POSSIBLE EXPOSURE TO EXCESSIVE MICROWAVE ENERGY
Failure to observe the following safety precautions may result in harmful exposure microwave energy.
(a)Under no circumstances should any attempt be made to operate the oven with the door open or to tamper with the safety interlocks (door latches) or to insert anything into the safety interlock holes.
(b)Do not place any object between the oven door and front face or allow food or cleaner residues to accumulate on sealing surfaces. Ensure that the door and door sealing surfaces are kept clean by wiping after use first with a damp cloth and then with a soft dry cloth.
(c)Do not operate the oven if it is damaged until it has been repaired by a qualified microwave service technician trained by the manufacturer.
It is particularly important that the oven door closes properly and that there is no damage to the:
(1)Door, door seals and sealing surfaces
(2)Door hinges (broken or loose)
(d)The oven should not be adjusted or repaired by anyone other than a properly qualified microwave service technician trained by the manufacturer.
Read Carefully and keep for future reference. Before cooking food or liquids in your microwave oven, please check that the following safety precautions are taken.
1.DO NOT use any metallic cookware in the microwave oven:
•Dinnerware with gold or silver trimmings
•Skewers, forks, etc.
Reason: Electric arcing or sparking may occur and may damage the oven.
2.DO NOT heat:
Ex) Eggs, nuts in shells, tomatoes
Reason: The increase in pressure may cause them to explode.
Tip: Remove lids and pierce skins, bags, etc.
3.DO NOT operate the microwave oven when it is empty. Reason: The oven walls may be damaged.
Tip: Leave a glass of water inside the oven at all times. The water will absorb the microwaves if you accidentally set the oven going when it is empty.
4.DO NOT cover the rear ventilation slots with cloths or paper.
Reason: The cloths or paper may catch fire as hot air is evacuated from the oven.
5.ALWAYS use oven gloves when removing a dish from the oven. Reason: Some dishes absorb microwaves and heat is always
transferred from the food to the dish.The dishes are therefore hot.
6.DO NOT touch heating elements or interior oven walls.
Reason: These walls may be hot enough to burn even after cooking has finished, even though they do not appear to be so. Do not allow inflammable materials to come into contact with any interior area of the oven. Let the oven cool down first.
7.To reduce the risk of fire in the oven cavity:
•Do not store flammable materials in the oven
•Remove wire twist ties from paper or plastic bags
•Do not use your microwave oven to dry newspapers
•If smoke is observed, keep the oven door closed and switch off or disconnect the oven from the power supply
8.Take particular care when heating liquids and baby foods.
•ALWAYS allow a standing time of at least 20 seconds after the oven has been switched off so that the temperature can equalize.
•Stir during heating, if necessary, and ALWAYS stir after heating.
