For added convenience, the Auto Defrost includes a built-in beep mechanism that reminds you to check, turn over, separate, or rearrange to get best defrost results. different defrosting levels are provided. 1 MEAT 2 POULTRY 3 FISH OPERATING TIPS • For best results, remove fish, shellfish, meat, and poultry from its original closed paper or plastic package (wrapper). Otherwise, the wrap will hold steam and juice close to the foods, which can cause the outer surface of the foods to cook. • For best results, shape your ground meat into the form of a doughnut before freezing. When defrosting, scrape off thawed meat when the beep sounds and continue defrosting. • Place foods in a shallow container. This table shows you food type selections and the weights you can set for each type.

USING YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN DEFROSTING TIPS • When using Auto Defrost, the weight to be entered is the net weight in pounds and tenths of pounds (the weight of the food minus the container). • Before starting, make sure you have removed any of the metal twist-ties which often come with frozen food bags, and replace them with strings or elastic bands. • Open containers such as cartons before they are placed in the oven. • Always slit or pierce plastic pouches or packaging. • If food is foil wrapped, remove foil and place it in a suitable container. • Slit the skins, if any, of frozen food such as sausage. • Bend plastic pouches of food to ensure even defrosting. • Always underestimate defrosting time. If defrosted food is still icy in the center, return it to the microwave oven for more defrosting. • The length of defrosting time varies according to how solidly the food is frozen. • The shape of the package affects how quickly food will defrost. Shallow packages will defrost more quickly than a deep block. • As food begins to defrost, separate the pieces. Separated pieces defrost more easily. • Use small pieces of aluminum foil to shield parts of food such as chicken wings, leg tips, fish tails, or areas that start to get warm. Make sure the foil does not touch the sides, top, or bottom of the oven. The foil can damage the oven lining. • For better results, let food stand after defrosting. (For more information on standing time, see the “Microwave Cooking Tips” section.) • Turn over food during defrosting or standing time. Break apart and remove food as required. - 16 - USING YOUR MICROWAVE OVEN Using Quick Touch Your oven’s menu has been preprogrammed to cook food automatically. Tell the oven what you want.

COOKING UTENSILS MICROWAVE UTENSIL GUIDE USE DO NOT USE OVENPROOF GLASS (treated for high intensity heat): utility dishes, loaf dishes, pie plates, cake plates, liquid measuring cups, casseroles and bowls without metallic trim. CHINA: bowls, cups, serving plates and platters without metallic trim. PLASTIC: Plastic wrap (as a cover)-- lay the plastic wrap loosely over the dish and press it to the sides. Vent plastic wrap by turning back one edge slightly to allow excess steam to escape. The dish should be deep enough so that the plastic wrap will not touch the food. As the food heats it may melt the plastic wrap wherever the wrap touches the food. Use plastic dishes, cups, semirigid freezer containers, and plastic bags only for short cooking time. Use these with care because the plastic may soften from the heat of the food. PAPER: Paper towels, waxed paper, paper napkins, and paper plates with no metallic trim or design. Look for the manufacturer's label for use in the microwave oven. METAL UTENSILS: Metal shields the food from microwave energy and produces uneven cooking. Also avoid metal skewers, thermometers, or foil trays. Metal utensils can cause arcing, which can damage your microwave oven. METAL DECORATION: Metal-trimmed or metal-banded dinnerware, casserole dishes, etc. The metal trim interferes with normal cooking and may damage the oven. ALUMINUM FOIL: Avoid large sheets of aluminum foil because they hinder cooking and may cause harmful arcing. Use small pieces of foil to shield poultry legs and wings. Keep ALL aluminum foil at least 1 inch from the side walls and door of the oven. WOOD: Wooden bowls and boards will dry out and may split or crack when you use them in the microwave oven. Baskets react in the same way. TIGHTLY COVERED UTENSILS: Be sure to leave openings for steam to escape from covered utensils. Pierce plastic pouches of vegetables or other food items before cooking. Tightly closed pouches could explode. BROWN PAPER: Avoid using brown paper bags. They absorb too much heat and could burn. FLAWED OR CHIPPED UTENSILS: Any utensil that is cracked, flawed, or chipped may break in the oven.
Do not use recycled paper products in the microwave oven. They sometimes contain impurities that cause sparks to occur. - 27 - METAL TWIST TIES: Remove metal twist ties from plastic or paper bags. They become hot and could cause a fire. FAQS FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Q. Can I use either metal or aluminum pans in my microwave oven? A. Usable metal includes aluminum foil for shielding (use small, flat pieces), and shallow foil trays (if tray is 3/4 inch deep and filled with food to absorb microwave energy). Never allow metal to touch walls or door. Q. Sometimes the door of my microwave oven appears wavy. Is this normal? A. This appearance is normal and does not affect the operation of your oven. Q. What are the humming noises that I hear when my microwave oven is operating? A. You hear the sound of the transformer when the magnetron tube cycles on and off. Q. Why does the dish become hot when I microwave food in it? I thought that this should not happen. A. As the food becomes hot it will conduct the heat to the dish. Use hot pads to remove food after cooking. Q. What does “standing time” mean? A. ”Standing time” means that food should be taken out of the oven and covered for additional time after cooking. This process allows the cooking to finish, saves energy and frees the oven for other purposes. Q. Can I pop popcorn in my microwave oven? How do I get the best results? A. Yes. Pop packaged microwave popcorn following manufacturer’s guidelines or use the preprogrammed Popcorn button. Do not use regular paper bags. Use the “listening test” by stopping the oven as soon as the popping slows to a “pop” every one or two seconds. Do not try to repop unpopped kernels. You can also use special microwave poppers. When using a popper, be sure to follow manufacturer’s directions. Do not pop popcorn in glass utensils. Q. Why does steam come out of the air exhaust vent? A. Steam is normally produced during cooking. The microwave oven has been designed to vent this steam out the top vent. Steam exhaust here - 28 - TROUBLESHOOTING BEFORE CALLING FOR SERVICE Check the following list to be sure a service call is really necessary. A quick reference of this manual as well as reviewing additional information on items to check, may prevent an unneeded service call.
If nothing on the oven operates: • check for a blown circuit fuse or a tripped main circuit breaker. • check if oven is properly connected to electric circuit in house. • check that controls are set properly. If the oven interior light does not works: • the light bulb is loose or defective. If oven will not cook: • check that control panel was programmed correctly. • check that door is firmly closed. • check that Start Pad was touched. • check that probe was inserted correctly into receptacle. • check that timer wasn’t started instead of a cook function. If oven takes longer than normal to cook or cooks too rapidly: • be sure the Power Level is programmed properly. If the time of day clock does not always keep correct time: • check that the power cord is fully inserted into the outlet receptacle. • be sure the oven is the only appliance on the electrical circuit. If food cooks unevenly: • be sure food is evenly shaped. • be sure food is completely defrosted before cooking. • check placement of aluminum strips used to prevent overcooking. If food is undercooked: • check recipe to be sure all directions (amount, time, & power levels) were correctly followed. • be sure food is completely defrosted before cooking. If food is overcooked: • check recipe to be sure all directions (amount, power level, time, size of dish) were followed. If arcing (sparks) occur: • be sure microwavable dishes were used. • be sure oven wasn’t operated when empty. If the Display shows a time counting down but the oven is not cooking: • check that door is firmly closed. • check that Timer wasn’t started instead of a cooking function.
• be sure microwave oven is on a separate circuit. • be sure wire twist ties weren’t used. - 29 - LIMITED WARRANTY (USA) ARBITRATION NOTICE: THIS LIMITED WARRANTY CONTAINS AN ARBITRATION PROVISION THAT REQUIRES YOU AND LG TO RESOLVE DISPUTES BY BINDING ARBITRATION INSTEAD OF IN COURT, UNLESS YOU CHOOSE TO OPT OUT.

Any dispute between you and LG shall not be combined or consolidated with a dispute involving any other person’s or entity’s product or claim. More specifically, without limitation of the foregoing, any dispute between you and LG shall not under any circumstances proceed as part of a class or representative action. Instead of arbitration, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court, but that small claims court action may not be brought on a class or representative basis. Arbitration Rules and Procedures. To begin arbitration of a claim, either you or LG must make a written demand for arbitration. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and will be conducted before a single arbitrator under the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated (referred to as the “AAA Rules”) and under the procedures set forth in this section. The AAA Rules are available online at adr.org/consumer. Send a copy of your written demand for arbitration, as well as a copy of this provision, to the AAA in the manner described in the AAA Rules. You must also send a copy of your written demand to LG at LG Electronics, USA, Inc. Attn: Legal Department- Arbitration 1000 Sylvan Avenue Englewood Cliffs, NJ 07632. If there is a conflict between the AAA Rules and the rules set forth in this section, the rules set forth in this section will govern. This arbitration provision is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. Judgment may be entered on the arbitrator’s award in any court of competent jurisdiction. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope and enforceability of the arbitration provision and to the arbitrability of the dispute are for the court to decide. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this provision. Governing Law. The law of the state of your residence shall govern this Limited Warranty and any disputes between us except to the extent that such law is preempted by or inconsistent with applicable federal law. Fees/Costs. You do not need to pay any fee to begin an arbitration. Upon receipt of your written demand for arbitration, LG will promptly pay all arbitration filing fees to the AAA unless you seek more than $25,000 in damages, in which case the payment of these fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. Except as otherwise provided for herein, LG will pay all AAA filing, administration and arbitrator fees for any arbitration initiated in accordance with the AAA Rules and this arbitration provision. If you prevail in the arbitration, LG will pay your attorneys’ fees and expenses as long as they are reasonable, by considering factors including, but not limited to, the purchase amount and claim amount. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if applicable law allows for an award of reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses, an arbitrator can award them to the same extent that a court would. If the arbitrator finds either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all arbitration fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such a situation, you agree to reimburse LG for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Except as otherwise provided for, LG waives any rights it may have to seek attorneys’ fees and expenses from you if LG prevails in the arbitration. Hearings and Location. If your claim is for $25,000 or less, you may choose to have the arbitration conducted solely on the basis of (1) documents submitted to the arbitrator, (2) through a telephonic hearing, or (3) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds $25,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Any in-person arbitration hearings will be held at a location within the federal judicial district in which you reside unless we both agree to another location or we agree to a telephonic arbitration.
