Heating and cooking
This microwave is equipped with a cooling function.
This means that the machine fan continues running
for about 3 minutes after a cooking or grill process
which takes at least two minutes. This is not a mal-
function of the appliance! The rapid cooling helps
to prolong the life of the appliance.
During the cooking process, drops of water can
form on the oven door or on the housing. This is
normal and is not an indication of a malfunction.
When the appliance has cooled down, wipe the
moisture off with a dry cloth.
NEVER use the grill stand t or other metallic ob-
jects when you are using the appliance in the micro-
wave mode. Metals reflect the microwave radiation
and it leads to the generation of sparks. This could
cause a fire and irreparably damage the appliance!
