Installation Instructions

Electrical requirements

Observe all governing codes and ordinances.
A 120 Volt, 60 Hz, AC only, 15- or 20-amp fused
electrical supply is required. (A time-delay fuse is
recommended.) It is recommended that a separate
circuit serving only this appliance be provided.
• For all cord connected appliances:
The microwave oven 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 electric current. The microwave
oven is equipped with a cord having a grounding
wire with a grounding plug. The plug must be
plugged into an outlet that is properly installed and
result in a risk of electric shock.
Consult a qualified electrician or serviceman if the
grounding instructions are not completely under-
stood, or if doubt exists as to whether the microwave
oven is properly grounded.


Improper use of the grounding can
Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can
result in death, fire, or electrical shock.
Do not use an extension cord. If the power supply
cord is too short, have a qualified electrician or
serviceman install an outlet near the microwave oven.
• For a permanently connected appliance:
The microwave oven must be connected to a
grounded, metallic, permanent wiring system, or
an equipment grounding conductor should be run
with the circuit conductors and connected to the
equipment grounding terminal or lead on the
microwave oven.
