—IMPROPER USE OF THE GROUNDING PLUG
CAN RESULT IN A RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK.
Consult a qualified electrician or service person if the grounding instructions are not com-
pletely understood, or if doubt exists as to whether the appliance is properly grounded. If it
is necessary to use an extension cord, use only a three wire extension cord that has a
three-prong polarized grounding plug, and a three-slot receptacle that will accept the plug
of the appliance. The marked rating of the extension cord should be equal to or greater
than the electrical rating of the appliance.
THIS APPLIANCE 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. This appliance 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.
• Plug into properly installed and grounded 3-prong outlet.
• DO NOT remove ground prong.
• DO NOT use an adapter.
1. A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risks resulting from becoming
entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
2. Longer cord sets or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised
in their use. Do not let cord hang over edge of a table or counter.
3. If a long cord or extension cord is used, (1) the marked electrical rating of the cord set
or extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance, (2)
the extension cord must be a grounding-type 3-wire cord, and (3) the longer cord
should be arranged so that it will not drape over the counter top or table-
top where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over accidentally.
The oven must be operated on a SEPARATE CIRCUIT. No other appliance should share
the circuit with the microwave oven. If it does, the branch circuit fuse may blow or the cir-
cuit breaker may trip. The oven must be plugged into at least a 20 AMP, 120 VOLT, 60 Hz
GROUNDED OUTLET. Where a standard two-prong outlet is encountered, it is the
personal responsibility and obligation of the consumer to have it replaced with a properly
grounded three-prong outlet. The VOLTAGE used must be the same as specified on this
microwave oven (120 V, 60 Hz). Using a higher voltage is dangerous and may result in a
fire or oven damage. Using a lower voltage will cause slow cooking. Panasonic is NOT
responsible for any damages resulting from the use of the oven with any voltage other
TV / Radio Interference
1. Operation of the microwave oven may cause interference to your radio, TV or similar
2. When there is interference, it may be reduced or eliminated by taking the following
(a) Place the radio, TV, etc. away from the microwave oven as far as possible.
(b) Use a properly installed antenna to obtain stronger signal reception.
(c) Clean door and sealing surfaces of the oven. (See Care and Cleaning of Your
