General Information

Electrical Requirements

The oven is designed to operate on a Standard
120 VAC, 60 Hz household outlet. Be sure the circuit is
at least 15 or 20 A and the microwave oven is the only
appliance on the circuit. It is not designed for 50 Hz or
any circuit other than a 120 VAC, 60 Hz circuit.

occur when the microwave oven is operated under high
humidity conditions and in no way indicates a
malfunction of the unit.

operating parts inside the oven, the water should not be
allowed to seep into the ventilation openings.
