Choosing a Location for Your Oven
You will use your oven frequently so plan its lo-
cation for ease of use. The oven must be placed
This appliance must be grounded. This oven is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with a
grounding plug. It must be plugged into a wall receptacle that is properly installed and grounded in accor-
dance with the National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances. In the event of an electrical short
circuit, grounding reduces risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric current.
WARNING – Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a risk of electric shock.
Electrical Requirements
The electrical requirements are a 120 volt 60 Hz, AC only, 15 amp. or more
protected electrical supply. It is recommended that a separate circuit serv-
ing only this appliance be provided.
The oven is equipped with a 3-prong grounding plug. It must be plugged
into a wall receptacle that is properly installed and grounded. Should you
only have a 2-prong outlet, have a qualified electrician install a correct wall
A 3-prong adapter may be purchased and used temporarily if local codes
allow. Follow package directions.
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce risk of becoming entangled
in or tripping over a longer cord.
Extension Cord
If it is necessary to use an extension cord, use only a 3-wire extension cord
that has a 3-blade grounding plug and a 3-slot receptacle that will accept
the plug on the microwave oven. The marked rating of the extension cord
should be AC 115-120 volt, 15 amp. or more.
Be careful not to drape the cord over the countertop or table where it can be
pulled on by children or tripped over accidentally.
Notes:1. If you have any questions about the grounding or electrical in-
structions, consult a qualified electrician or service person.

to the oven or personal injury resulting from failure to observe the
correct electrical connection procedures.
