IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
4
Oven Use:
• The oven is for domestic food preparation only.
Never operate when empty.  
• Do not leave or store anything inside the oven
when not in use.
• Never attempt to use the oven with the door open.
It is important not to defeat or tamper with the door
safety latches. This may result in exposure to
microwave energy.
• Never operate the oven with any object caught in
the door sealing surfaces, this again may cause
microwave leakage.
• Do not insert fingers or objects in the holes of the
door latches or air-vent openings as this may
damage the oven and cause an electric shock.     
• If water or food drops inside the air vent openings
switch off the oven immediately, unplug it and call a
Service Technician appointed by SHARP. 
(See page 21).
• Never attempt to move the oven while it is
operating.
Childcare: Only allow children to use the oven under
close adult supervision, children should be taught all
important safety instructions. Do not allow anyone to
play with the oven, lean or swing on the oven door.
Pacemaker: If you have a heart pacemaker,
consult your doctor or the pacemaker manufacturer
prior to oven use.
Warning: Only allow children to use the oven without
supervision when adequate instructions have been
given so that the child is able to use the oven in a safe
way and understands the hazards of improper use.
WARNING! 
Inspect the Oven:
Check the oven carefully for damage
before and regularly after installation.
• Make sure the door closes properly,
that it is not misaligned or warped.
• Check the hinges and door safety
latches are not broken or loose.
• Ensure the door seal and sealing
surfaces are not damaged.
• Inspect the oven interior and door for
dents.
Important:  
If any damage is apparent, do not
operate the oven in any way.  Contact
your dealer or an authorised Service
Technician appointed by SHARP. 
1.Remove all packing materials including the feature
sticker. Do not remove the plastic film from the inside
of the oven window as this protects it from dirt.
2.Place oven on a secure, level surface, strong
enough to take the oven weight, plus the heaviest
item likely to be cooked in the oven.
3.Do not place the oven where heat, moisture or high
humidity are generated, (for example, near or
above a  conventional oven) or near combustible
materials (for example, curtains). Do not block or
obstruct air vent openings, as obstructions may
ignite due to the emission of hot air.
4.Make sure the power supply cord is undamaged
(See Installation next page) and that it does not run
under the oven or over any hot or sharp surfaces. 
5.The socket must be readily accessible so that it can
be easily unplugged in an emergency.
6.Do not use the oven outdoors.
Fire:  If smoke is observed, switch off and
unplug the appliance and keep the door
closed  in order to stifle any flames. 
Liquids: Microwave heating of beverages.
can result in delayed eruptive boiling,
therefore care has to be taken when
handling the container.
READ CAREFULLY AND KEEP FOR FUTURE REFERENCE

INSTALLATION

BUILDING-IN-KIT.
An installation frame is available which enables the
microwave oven to be integrated within a kitchen unit.
The microwave oven is not designed to be built above
or near a conventional oven.
SHARP recommend the use of the build in kit, EBR-
4500, available from your SHARP dealer.  Only the
use of this frame will guarantee the quality and safety
of the oven.  When building, follow installation
instructions supplied for A type models carefully.
IMPORTANT! ELECTRICAL CONNECTION.
• Do not allow water to come into contact with the
power supply cord or plug.
• Insert the plug properly into the socket as the plug
may otherwise overheat and catch fire.
• Do not connect other appliances to the same socket
using an adaptor plug as it may cause the house
wiring to overheat and catch fire.
• If the plug or socket is loose or the power supply
cord is damaged, do not operate the oven, it must
be replaced with a special power cord, by the
manufacturer or their service agent or a similarly
qualified person. 
A defective plug, power supply cord or socket may
overheat and catch fire during operation or cause
an electrical shock.
• When removing the plug from the socket always
grip the plug, never the cord as this may damage
the power supply cord and the connections inside
the plug.
• This product is fitted with a re-wireable plug. Should
it not be suitable for the socket outlet in your home,
remove the plug and fit an appropriate type,
observing the wiring code given in `To replace the
mains plug’ on page 20.
If you wish to remove or replace the plug supplied,
ensure the plug is removed properly and not cut off.
When replacing the plug please ensure that you use a
BSI or ASTA approved plug to BS1363, this should be
fitted with a brown coloured 13 amp fuse approved
by BSI or ASTA to BS1362. If you have any doubt
about electrical connection seek the help of a
qualified electrician. 
WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED
To wire an appropriate plug, follow the wiring code given in `To replace the mains plug’ on page 20.

MAFF HEATING CATEGORY
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 [1lb 2oz]). It does
not represent the general performance of the oven.

MICROWAVE POWER LEVELS
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 opposite.
Power level: The microwave power level is varied
by the microwave energy switching on and off.
When using power levels other than 100P (HIGH)
you will be able to hear the microwave energy
pulsing on and off as the food cooks or defrosts. 
IMPORTANT: The microwave power level will default
to 100P (HIGH) unless you press the POWER LEVEL
key to the desired setting.
Your oven has 5 power levels. To choose the power
level for cooking, follow the advice given in the
recipe section. Generally the following
recommendations apply:
HIGH - (100P output = 900W) used for fast
cooking or reheating e.g. for casseroles, hot
beverages, vegetables etc.
MEDIUM HIGH - (70P output = 630W) used for
longer cooking of dense foods such as roast joints,
meat loaf and plated meals, also for sensitive dishes
such as cheese sauce and sponge cakes. At this
reduced setting, the sauce will not boil over and
food will cook evenly without over cooking at the
sides.
MEDIUM - (50P output = 450W) for dense foods
which require a long cooking time when cooked
conventionally, eg. beef dishes, it is advisable to use
this power setting to ensure the meat will be tender.
MEDIUM LOW - (30P output = 270W Defrost
setting) to defrost, select this power setting, to
ensure that the dish defrosts evenly. This setting is
also ideal for simmering rice, pasta, dumplings and
cooking egg custard.
LOW - (10P output = 90W) For gentle defrosting,
eg. cream gateaux or pastry.

MICROWAVING
Introduction:
Water, sugar and fat in food absorb microwaves
which causes them to vibrate.  This creates heat by
friction, in the same way your hands get warm when
you rub them together.
Outer areas of food are heated by microwave energy,
and remaining portions by conduction.  It is, therefore,
important to turnrearrange or stir food to ensure
even heating.  Where recommended allow food to
stand.  This is not optional but necessary to ensure
thorough cooking and is particularly important for
dense food, such as joints of meat.
Microwaves pass through non-metallic dishes and
utensils and heat the food inside the dishes.
Microwaves are reflected by metal.  The oven is lined
with metal and has a fine metallic mesh in the door to
prevent microwave leakage. Metallic dishes are not
suitable for microwaving. Only use utensils that are
suitable for microwave ovens.
(See suitable cookware, pages 13 - 14).
HOW TO OPERATE THE OVEN
