1. Empty the microwave oven of any packing materials.
2. Clean the inside with a soft, damp cloth.
3. Check for damage, such as:
a door that is not lined up correctly
damage around the door, or
dents on the interior or exterior of the microwave oven.
If there is any damage, do not operate the microwave oven
until a designated service technician has checked it and
made any needed repairs.

Location Requirements

Fire Hazard
Do not install oven next to or over a heat source
without a UL listed (CSA approved in Canada)
trim kit.
Doing so can result in death, fire, or electrical shock.
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and install
microwave oven.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
IMPORTANT: The control side of the microwave oven is the
heavy side. Handle the microwave oven gently. The weight of the
microwave oven is 43 lbs (19.5 kg).
Place the microwave oven on a cart, counter, table or shelf
that is strong enough to hold the microwave oven and the
food and utensils you place inside it.
The microwave oven should be at a temperature above 50°F
(10°C) for proper operation.
NOTE: Some models can be built into a wall or cabinet by using
one of the trim kits listed in the "Assistance or Service" section.
Do not block the exhaust vents or air intake openings. Allow
a few inches of space at the back and side of the microwave
oven where the exhaust vents are located. Blocking the
exhaust vents could cause damage to the microwave oven,
as well as poor cooking results.
Make sure the microwave oven legs are in place to ensure
proper airflow. If vents are blocked, a sensitive thermal device
may automatically turn the microwave oven off. The
microwave oven should work properly once it has cooled.


Electrical Requirements

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.
Observe all governing codes and ordinances.
A 120 Volt, 60 Hz, AC only, 15- or 20-amp electrical supply
with a fuse or circuit breaker.
A time-delay fuse or time-delay circuit breaker.
A separate circuit serving only this microwave oven.
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 grounded.
Improper use of the grounding plug can
result in a risk of electric shock. Consult a qualified
electrician or serviceman if the grounding instructions are
not completely understood, or if doubt exists as to whether
the microwave oven is properly grounded.
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.
