This appliance 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 electrical current. This appliance is equipped with a cord that includes a grounding wire and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an outlet that is properly installed and grounded. Plug the three-prong power cord into a properly grounded outlet of standard 115-120 voltage, 60 Hz. Your oven should be the only appliance on this circuit.


Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of electric shock. Consult a qualified electrician or servicer if you do not understand the grounding instructions or if you are not sure if the appliance is properly grounded.

Use of Extension Cords

A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risk of becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. Longer cord sets or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use. If a long cord or extension cord is used:

1.The marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance.

2.The extension cord must be a grounding-type 3-wire cord and it must be plugged into a 3-slot outlet.

3.The longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the counter top or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over accidentally. If you use an extension cord, the interior light may flicker and the blower may vary when the microwave oven is on. Cooking times may be longer, too.


Do not cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord under any circumstances.


Connect the oven to a 20A circuit.

When connecting the oven to a 15A circuit, make sure that circuit breaker is operable.
