Re: Neffcombination built in microwave and grill

I had to phone Neff to get the solution as it is not in the instructions.
Turn on appliance using central vertical oval knob. Press i information button( to the right of the oval knob) for 5 seconds, language names should appear, turn the temperature knob(to the right of the i knob) to change the language to English press the i button again to set the language.
Hope this helps

Re: Neffcombination built in microwave and grill

The options for language selection will be detailed in the setup menu in the manual. German and English are similar enough to work out the steps to return it to English. A manual can usually be acquired from the manufacturers website, or from download sites. (Internet search your brand and model number)

How to change a fuse in a GE Spacemaker XL Microwave

  • 1 Remove the old fuse from the compartment that the control panel was covering by grasping it and pulling it out. Place a new fuse in the compartment and push it firmly into the holder until it snaps into place. Connect the wires to the control panel according to the labels.
  • 2 Place the control panel on the microwave and install the retaining screw with the Phillips screwdriver. Install the grill on the microwave and snap it into place. If your microwave grill has retaining screws, install those and tighten them using a Phillips screwdriver. Plug the power cord in for the microwave or turn the power on at the breaker box and program the microwave according to manufacturer instructions

    Sorry, but you won't find them. That model has never been marketed in English-speaking territories so the manufacturer has never gone to the expense of producing instructions in English.

    Your fix is to either ask a bilingual friend or colleague to translate key parts for you, to pay a professional translator (best quality, but highest cost), or to type (or scan and convert to text) the parts you want translated into free online automated translation services. The latter is the least accurate but may make enough sense to be useful. If you use FireFox then you can install the amazingly useful FoxLingo add-on for free, it gives access to many automated translators so you can pick the translation which is best for each item you submit for conversion.

    Service manual microwave oven whirlpool ft339 required in german or english

    Most major manufacturers supply manuals online so if you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, you may be pleasantly surprised as usually, if available, one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, Dealer Network for spare part supplies as required.

    The information is normally free of charge.

    I hope this helps.

    I live in Switzerland and have a new Electrolux EB SL6 built in oven. How can I get a user's manual in English?

    Unfortunately, you can't as your model has never been intended for English-speaking countries. As far as I recall, it's only available in French, Italian, German and some Eastern European languages.

    You will either need to ask someone locally to translate the key sections into English for you, or if you use the FireFox web browser you can add the excellent FoxLingo plug-in which provides translations from a number of sources. All of the software and the translations are free.

    Removing microwave surround

    Ahh, that's one of those British brands I can't get any information about.

    If you have the installation instructions, they would tell you how to install it, and it's as simple as reversing the procedure.

    BUT maybe it's not too different from US models in the sense that many of its components can be accessed without pulling it from the wall, assuming it's the over the range type.

    I would first refer you here:

    In most cases, you unplug the oven, then remove the vent grille across the top, then you'll see a screw holding the top of the control panel frame in place.

    Once that screw is out, you probably lift up and either swing forward or twist to loosen the control panel.

    You should be able to access the fuse, etc. at this point.

    There may also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

    If it's built into a cabinet, then you would have to remove the metal frame covering the area in which the microwave rests.

    Be safe.

    We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
