GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

For a permanently connected microwave oven:
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.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

If codes permit and a separate ground wire is used, it is
recommended that a qualified electrical installer determine that
the ground path and wire gauge are in accordance with local
codes.
Check with a qualified electrical installer if you are not sure the
microwave oven is properly grounded.
This microwave oven must be connected to a grounded metal,
permanent wiring system.
Be sure that the electrical connection and wire size are adequate
and in conformance with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/
NFPA 70-latest edition or CSA Standards C22.1-94, Canadian
Electrical Code, Part 1 and C22.2 No. O-M91-latest edition, and
all local codes and ordinances.

Electrical Connection

To properly install your microwave oven, you must determine the
type of electrical connection you will be using and follow the
instructions provided for it here.
Microwave oven must be connected to the proper electrical
voltage and frequency as specified on the model/serial
number rating plate. The model/serial/rating plate is located
underneath the control panel, along the oven vent.
A. Model/serial/rating plate
The microwave oven rated 120/240 volt, 20-amp, has 4 wires
(L1, L2, N and G) in the flex conduit and should be
connected to a 20-amp maximum rated circuit, overcurrent
protected on both the L1 and L2 circuits.
A time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended.
Flexible cable from the microwave oven should be connected
directly to the junction box.
Do not cut the conduit. The length of conduit provided is for
serviceability of the microwave oven.
