the temperature from the range or cooktop below the microwave oven 
gets too hot. When this occurs, the vent fan cannot be turned off. “FAN

Dynamic Fan Sensing (on some models): To keep the microwave 
oven from overheating, the auto vent fan will automatically turn on at

Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, 
fire, or electrical shock.
WARNING
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
■  
For all cord connected appliances:
The microwave oven must be grounded. In the event of 
an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of 
electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric 
current. The microwave oven is equipped with a cord 
having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. The plug 
must be plugged into an outlet that is properly installed 
and grounded.
WARNING: 
Improper use of the grounding plug can 
result in a risk of electric shock. Consult a qualified 
electrician or serviceman if the grounding instructions are 
not completely understood, or if doubt exists as to whether 
the microwave oven is properly grounded. 
Do not use an extension cord. If the power supply cord is 
too short, have a qualified electrician or serviceman install 
an outlet near the microwave oven.
This device complies with Part 18 of the FCC Rules.
