3  SAFETY RECOMMENDATIONS

3.1 INSTALLATION

Do not obstruct the air vents louvers, Do not let any liquid into them and keep the appliance well away from any heat source.

The appliance can be screwed onto a flat surface from underneath.

Be aware of the need for air flow at the back, A minimum distance of 12cm is required between the oven and the wall. If your microwave oven is installed with a traditional oven, the microwave must always be installed under the oven.(Fig.4)

3.2 ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS

The cable between the appliance and the battery should be shorter than 10 meters long and with a minimal section of 35mm square for a 12V microwave.

To fix the cable to the microwave ensure that the polarities are connected correctly. See (Fig. 5)

Your appliance uses capacitors so before any connection to the battery or any other appliance, disconnect the microwave oven.

4 PRECAUTIONS

The appliance should not be operated without anything inside it, It must contain something to be heated or you could damage and reduce its life. A safety cut out switch turns off the oven if it is accidentally switched on empty. In this case, open the door for 15 minutes for the safety cut out to reset before attempting to use the oven again.

4.1 BEFORE USING YOUR OVEN FOR THE FIRST TIME

Unpack all accessories, wash them and dry them.

To mount the turntable.

Place the triangular drive onto the central axis located in the base of the oven, Rotate the prism to the right or the left until it drops into place then place the turntable on the drive.

Whenever the appliance is switched on, the turntable rotates.

4.2 HOW TO SWITCH ON THE APPLIANCE

For the correct setting of the timer for less than 2 minutes, turn the knob past graduation 2 and then go back to the desired position.

Your appliance gives you the possibility to unfreeze, to warm up and to cook food much more rapidly than traditional means.

Place the food inside and close the door.

Set the power button 7 (Fig.1).

The meaning of the five power settings is as follows from left to right looking at the control.

Cooking and warming up

Low cooking

Warming up of delicate meals

Rapid unfreezing of small portions

Light warm up

Set the cooking time using button 6 (Fig.1)

Switch on by pressing button 9. The lamp lights up, the appliance is running, When cooking time is over, the bell rings and cooking is stopped, the light turns off, the turntable and ventilation are switched off.

5  ADVICE FOR COOKING

5.1 TEMPERATURE OF THE FOOD

Due to microwave properties, only the food is warming up Dishes and plates might be cold or warm even though food might very hot. To avoid any risk of burning, always stir before serving and check temperature especially for food for babies and children.

A delayed boiling effect might occur when heating liquids such as water, coffee, tea and milk, when recipient is out of the oven. To avoid this, place a plastic spoon or a glass rod in the liquid being heated.

5.2 DO NOT USE A MICROWAVE OVEN TO HEAT EGGS IN THEIR SHELLS: THEY EXPLODE.

Sealed containers such as feed bottles, closed jars, etc must always be opened first.

5.3 USE ONLY CONTAINERS SUITABLE FOR MICROWAVE TRANSPARENCY

There is a simple test to check the microwave transparency:

Place an empty container in the oven alongside a glass of water. Set the oven to maximum power and heat for 1 minute.

If the container is still cold then it is transparent, It means that it can be used in microwave oven, If it is hot then it should not be used.

5.4 FOIL DISHES

Do not use metal objects in the microwave oven.

Follow instructions written on the container if there is any, If there is not any then remove the cover.

Containers may be placed in the middle of the turntable at a minimum distance of 1 cm from the cavity.

Stir the food and wait one minute before you serve.

5.5 DISPOSABLE CONTAINERS

Do not leave the oven running in unattended operation when food is cooked, If smoke is observed then keep the door closed and switch off or unplug the appliance.

5.6 THE TURNTABLE MUST ALWAYS BE IN POSITION

If the container you are using is too high to be placed on the turntable then you can remove it and the drive, It is advisable to turn the dish half way during cooking period for better heat distribution, The turntable and drive must be replaced.

5.7 DOOR SHOULD CLOSE WITHOUT ANY CONSTRAINT

Any object should be placed in between the door and the front of the cavity.

6 CLEANING

6.1 DOOR AND DOOR FRAME

Wipe with a damp cloth or sponge to remove any traces of food each time the oven is used. Do not use any solvent on plastic materials.

Never attempt to remove the door if damaged and do not use the appliance.

6.2 CONTROL PANEL

Wipe with a damp cloth containing a little washing up liquid to remove any trace of grease. Dry with a soft cloth.

6.3 OUTSIDE SURFACE

Clean with a non-abrasive sponge and hot water containing a little washing up liquid. Rinse and dry with a soft cloth. Avoid using any other household detergents, abrasive products or solvents.

6.4 THE STAINLESS STEEL INSIDE WALL

Wipe off with a damp sponge and non-abrasive detergent each time the oven is used.

The surface will be easier to clean if the oven is still slightly warm, If you find large greasy marks or traces of dry food, boil a bowl of water for 10 minutes in your microwave oven. The steam will soften the stains, If the turntable and drive are removed to clean the oven bottom, take care not to get water in the central hole.

If the oven is very dirty, use special microwave oven cleaning products, sold in aerosol form. Avoid spraying the product into the air vents.
