This Product fulfi ls the requirement of the European standard EN55011.
 
In conformity with this standard, this product is classifi ed as group 2 class B equipment.
 
Group 2 means that the equipment intentionally generates radio-frequency energy in the form of electromagnetic 
radiation for the heat treatment of food.
 
Class B equipment means that the equipment is suitable to be used in domestic establishments.
**  Internal capacity is calculated by measuring maximum width, depth and height. Actual capacity for holding food is 
less.

GB-3
The heating category (a letter A to E) developed by 
MAFF (Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food) 
with microwave oven and food manufacturers 
indicates the ability of the oven to heat small 
quantities of food (up to 500g [ I lb 2oz]). It does not 
represent the general performance of the oven.
Food packs carry cooking instructions for heating 
categories A to E. Follow instructions for the letter 
corresponding to the oven's heating category. The 
higher the output power and heating category of 
the oven the less heating time is required as shown

 HEATING 
CATEGORY
Microwaves will pass through certain materials, such 
as glass and plastic, to heat the food. (See' Suitable 
Cookware' on page GB-16).
Water, sugar and fat in food absorb microwaves which 
cause them to vibrate. This creates heat by friction, 
in the same way your hands get warm when you rub 
them together.
The outer areas of the food are heated by the 
microwave energy, then the heat moves to the centre 
by conduction, as it does in conventional cooking. It 
is important to turn, rearrange or stir food to ensure 
even heating.
Once cooking is complete, the oven automatically 
stops producing microwaves.
Standing time is necessary after cooking, as it enables 
the heat to disperse equally throughout the food.
Microwaves are energy waves, similar to those used 
for TV and radio signals.
Electrical energy is conver ted into microwave 
energy, which is directed into the oven cavity via a 
waveguide. To prevent food and grease entering the 
wave guide it is protected by the waveguide cover.
Microwaves cannot pass through metal, because of 
this the oven cavity is made of metal and there is a 
fine metal mesh on the door. During cooking the 
microwaves bounce off  the sides of the oven cavity at 
random.

ACCESSORIES:
Check to make sure the following accessories are 
provided:
(15) Turntable (16) Turntable support (17) Coupling
Place the turntable support in the centre of the oven 
floor so that it can freely rotate around the coupling. 
Then place the turntable on to the turntable support 
so that it locates firmly into the coupling. 
To avoid turntable damage, ensure dishes and 
containers are lifted clear of the turntable rim when 
removing them from the oven. 
NOTE:  When you order accessories, please mention 
two items: part name and model name to your 
dealer or SHARP authorised service agent.
NOTES:
•  The waveguide cover is fragile. Care should be taken when cleaning inside the oven to ensure that it is not 
damaged.
•  Always operate the oven with the turntable and turntable support fitted correctly. This promotes thorough, 
even cooking. A badly fitted turntable may rattle, may not rotate properly and could cause damage to the 
oven.
•  All food and containers of food are always placed on the turntable for cooking.
•  The turntable rotates clockwise or anti-clockwise. The rotary direction may change each time you start the 
oven. This does not affect cooking performance.
