Before you begin operating the oven, carefully read the following instructions.
1. Empty the microwave oven and clean inside it
with a soft, damp cloth. Check for damage such
as a door that isn't lined up correctly, damage
around the door, or dents inside the oven or on the
exterior. If there is any damage, do not operate the
oven until a designated service technician has
checked it and made any needed repairs.
2. Put the oven on a cart, counter, table, or shelf that
is strong enough to hold the oven and the food and
utensils you put in it. (The control side of the unit
is the heavy side. Use care when handling the
oven.) The weight of the oven is about 35 lbs (16
kg). The microwave oven should be at a tempera-
ture above 50°F (10°C) for proper operation.
NOTE: You can build your microwave oven into a
wall or cabinet by using one of the trim kits listed in
the "Built-in kits" section.
NOTE: Do not block the exhaust vents or air intake
openings. Allow a few inches of space at the back
and side of the oven where the exhaust vents are
located. Blocking the exhaust vents could cause
damage to the oven and poor cooking results. Make
sure the microwave oven legs are in place to ensure
proper airflow. If vents are blocked, a sensitive ther-
mal safety device automatically turns the oven off.
The oven should work properly once it has cooled.
Fire Hazard
Do not install the oven next to or over a heat
source without a UL approved trim kit.
Doing so can result in death, fire,
or electrical shock.
