INSTALLATION
Unpacking the Refrigerator
ŸŸUse two or more people to move and
install the refrigerator. Failure to do so
can result in back or other injury.
ŸŸYour refrigerator is heavy. When moving
the refrigerator for cleaning or service,
be sure to protect the floor. Always pull
the refrigerator straight out when moving
it. Do not wiggle or walk the refrigerator
when trying to move it, as floor damage
could occur.
ŸŸKeep flammable materials and vapors,
such as gasoline, away from the
refrigerator. Failure to do so can result in
fire, explosion, or death.
Remove tape and any temporary labels from your
refrigerator before using. Do not remove any
warning-type labels, the model and serial number
label, or the Tech Sheet that is located under the
front of the refrigerator.
But, when you remove tape and temporary label,
remove them after pulling out the power plug.
To remove any remaining tape or glue, rub the
area briskly with your thumb. Tape or glue residue
can also be easily removed by rubbing a small
amount of liquid dish soap over the adhesive with
your fingers. Wipe with warm water and dry.
Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing alcohol,
flammable fluids, or abrasive cleaners to remove
tape or glue. These products can damage the
surface of your refrigerator.
Refrigerator shelves are installed in the shipping
position. Please reinstall shelves according to
your individual storage needs.
Choosing the Proper Location
•• Select a place where a water supply can
be easily connected for the automatic
icemaker.
Note
The water pressure must be 20~120
psi or 138~827 kPa or 1.4~8.4 kgf/cm²
on models without a water filter and
40~120 psi or 276~827 kPa or 2.8~8.4
kgf/cm² on models with a water filter.
•• The refrigerator should always be plugged
into its own individual properly grounded
electrical outlet rated for 115 Volts, 60 Hz,
AC only, and fused at 15 or 20 amperes.
This provides the best performance
and also prevents overloading house
wiring circuits which could cause a fire
hazard from overheated wires. It is
recommended that a separate circuit
serving only this appliance be provided.
Warning
To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not
install the refrigerator in a wet or damp
area.
Flooring
To avoid noise and vibration, the unit must be
leveled and installed on a solidly constructed
floor. If required, adjust the leveling legs to
compensate for unevenness of the floor. The
front should be slightly higher than the rear to
aid in door closing. Leveling legs can be turned
easily by tipping the cabinet slightly. Turn the
leveling legs to the left to raise the unit or to
the right to lower it. (See Leveling and Door
AlIgnment.)
Note
Installing on carpeting, soft tile surfaces,
a platform or weakly supported structure
is not recommended.

Water Pressure
ENGLISH
The water pressure must be 20~120 psi or
138~827 kPa or 1.4~8.4 kgf/cm² on models
without a water filter and 40~120 psi or 276~827
kPa or 2.8~8.4 kgf/cm² on models with a water
filter.
If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is
connected to the cold water supply, this water
line installation is not covered by the refrigerator
warranty. Follow the instructions carefully to
minimize the risk of expensive water damage.
If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is
connected to the cold water supply, the water
pressure to the reverse osmosis system needs
to be a minimum of 40 to 60 psi (276~414 kPa or
2.8~4.2 kgf/cm², less than 2.0~3.0 sec. to fill a
cup of 7 oz or 198 cc capacity).
Caution
Wear eye protection during installation
to prevent injury.
If the water pressure from the reverse osmosis
system is less than 20 psi or 138 kPa or 1.4 kgf/
cm² (takes more than 4.0 sec to fill a cup of 7 oz
or 198 cc capacity):
•• Check to see if the sediment filter in
the reverse osmosis system is blocked.
Replace the filter if necessary.
•• Allow the storage tank on the reverse
osmosis system to refill after heavy
usage.
•• If the issue concerning water pressure
from reverse osmosis remains, call a
licensed, qualified plumber.
•• All installations must be in accordance
with local plumbing code requirements.
What You Will Need
•• Copper Tubing, ¼ in. outer diameter, to
connect the refrigerator to the water
supply. Be sure both ends of the tubing
are cut square.
•• To determine how
much tubing you need:
measure the distance
from the water valve on the back of
the refrigerator to the water supply
pipe. Then, add 8 feet (2.4 m). Be sure
there is sufficient extra tubing (about 8
feet [2.4 m] coiled into 3 turns of about
10 in. [25 cm] diameter) to allow the
refrigerator to move out from the wall
after installation.
•• Power drill.
•• ½ in. or adjustable
wrench.
•• Flat blade and Phillips
head screwdrivers.
•• Two ¼ in. outer
diameter compression
nuts and 2 ferrules (sleeves) to connect the
copper tubing to the shutoff valve and
the refrigerator water valve.
•• If your existing copper water line has a
flared fitting at the end, you will need
an adapter (available at plumbing supply
stores) to connect the water line to the
refrigerator OR you
can cut off the flared
fitting with a tube
cutter and then use a
compression fitting.
•• Shutoff valve to connect to the cold
water line. The shutoff valve should
have a water inlet with a minimum
inside diameter of 5/32 in. at the point of
connection to the COLD WATER LINE.
Saddle-type shutoff valves are included
in many water
supply kits. Before
purchasing, make
sure a saddle-type
valve complies with
your local plumbing codes.
Note
A self piercing saddle type water valve
should not be used.

SHUT OFF THE MAIN WATER SUPPLY
Turn on the nearest faucet to relieve the
pressure on the line.
2
CHOOSE THE VALVE LOCATION
Choose a location for
the valve that is easily
accessible. It is best to
connect into the side of a
vertical water pipe. When
it is necessary to connect
into a horizontal water
pipe, make the connection to the top or
side, rather than at the bottom, to avoid
drawing off any sediment from the water
pipe.
3
DRILL THE HOLE FOR THE VALVE
Drill a ¼ in. hole in
the water pipe using
a sharp bit. Remove
any burrs resulting
from drilling the hole
in the pipe. Be careful
not to allow water
to drain into the drill. Failure to drill a ¼ in.
hole may result in reduced ice production
or smaller cubes.
Note
The hookup line cannot be white, plastic
tubing. Licensed plumbers must use
only copper tubing (NDA tubing #49595
or #49599) or Cross Link Polyethylene
(PEX) tubing.
FASTEN THE SHUTOFF VALVE
Fasten the shutoff valve to the cold water
pipe with the pipe clamp.

Caution
To remove the in-door ice bin, grip the
front handle, slightly lift the lower part,
and slowly pull out the bin as shown.
•• Keep hands and tools out of the ice
compartment door and dispenser chute.
Failure to do so may result in damage or
personal injury.
•• The icemaker stops producing ice when the
in-door ice bin is full. If you need more ice,
empty the ice bin into the extra ice bin in
the freezer compartment. During use, ice
may build up higher around the sensor than
in the rest of the bin, causing the icemaker
to stop producing ice before the bin is full.
Shaking the ice bin to level the ice within it
can reduce this problem.
•• To avoid damaging the icemaker, do not
store cans or other items in the ice bin.
•• Keep the ice compartment door closed
tightly. If the ice compartment door is not
closed tightly, the cold air in the ice bin will
freeze food in the refrigerator compartment.
This could also cause the icemaker to stop
producing ice.
•• If the icemaker is turned OFF for
an extended period of time, the ice
compartment will gradually warm up
to the temperature of the refrigerator
compartment. To prevent ice cubes from
melting and leaking from the dispenser,
ALWAYS empty the ice bin when the
icemaker is set to Off for more than a few
hours.
Assembling the In-Door Ice Bin
1
Carefully insert the in-door ice bin while
slightly slanting it to avoid contact with the

that already contains liquid.
•• Never use a glass that is exceptionally
narrow or deep. Ice may jam in the ice
passage and refrigerator performance may
be affected.
•• Keep the glass at a proper distance from
the ice outlet. A glass held too close to the
outlet may prevent ice from dispensing.
•• To avoid personal injury, keep hands out of
the ice door and passage.
•• Never remove the dispenser cover.
•• If ice or water dispenses unexpectedly, turn
off the water supply and contact a qualified
service center.
When You Should Turn the

dropping into the bin and water running
in the pipes as the icemaker refills.
Preparing for Vacation
Set the Ice On/Off button to Off and shut off
the water supply to the refrigerator.
Note
The ice bin should be emptied any time
the Ice On/Off button is turned Off.
If the ambient temperature is expected to drop
below freezing, have a qualified technician
drain the water supply system to prevent
serious property damage due to flooding
caused by ruptured water lines or connections.

•• Wash food before storing it in the refrigerator. Vegetables and fruit should be washed, and food
packaging should be wiped down to prevent adjacent foods from being contaminated.
•• If the refrigerator is kept in a hot and humid place, frequent opening of the door or storing a lot of
vegetables in the refrigerator may cause condensation to form. Wipe off the condensation with a
clean cloth or a paper towel.
•• If the refrigerator door or freezer drawer is opened too often, warm air may penetrate the refrigerator
and raise its temperature. It can also increase the cost to run the appliance.
•• Do not overfill or pack items too tightly into door bins. Doing so may cause damage to the bin or
personal injury if items are removed with excessive force.
•• The temperature inside the FRESHSteel Container is slightly lower than in the shelf or door bin area.
Note
•• If you are leaving home for a short period of time, like a short vacation, the refrigerator should be left
on. Refrigerated foods that are able to be frozen will stay preserved longer if stored in the freezer.
•• If you are leaving the refrigerator turned off for an extended period of time, remove all food and unplug
the power cord. Clean the interior, and leave the door open to prevent fungi from growing in the
refrigerator.
HOW TO USE
Food Storage Tips
Wrap or store food in the refrigerator in airtight
and moisture-proof material unless otherwise
noted. This prevents food odor and taste transfer
throughout the refrigerator. For dated products,
check date code to ensure freshness.
Food
How to
Butter or
Margarine
Keep opened butter in a covered
dish or closed compartment.
When storing an extra supply,
wrap in freezer packaging and
freeze.
Cheese
Store in the original wrapping
until you are ready to use it.
Once opened, rewrap tightly in
plastic wrap or aluminum foil.
Milk
Wipe milk cartons. For coldest
milk, place containers on
interior shelf.
Eggs
Store in original carton on
interior shelf, not on door shelf.
Fruit
Do not wash or hull the fruit
until it is ready to be used. Sort
and keep fruit in its original
container, in a crisper, or store
in a completely closed paper
bag on a refrigerator shelf.
Leafy
Vegetables
Remove store wrapping and
trim or tear off bruised and
discolored areas. Wash in cold
water and drain. Place in plastic
bag or plastic container and
store in crisper.
Vegetables
with skins
(carrots,
peppers)
Place in plastic bags or plastic
container and store in crisper.
Fish
Store fresh fish and shellfish
in the freezer section if they
are not being consumed the
same day of purchase. It is
recommended to consume
fresh fish and shellfish the
same day purchased.
Leftovers
Cover leftovers with plastic wrap
or aluminum foil, or store in
plastic containers with tight lids.
Storing Frozen Food
Note
Check a freezer guide or a reliable cookbook
for further information about preparing food
for freezing or food storage times.
Freezing
Your freezer will not quick-freeze a large
quantity of food. Do not put more unfrozen
food into the freezer than will freeze within
24 hours (no more than 2 to 3 lbs. of food per
cubic foot of freezer space). Leave enough
space in the freezer for air to circulate around
packages. Be careful to leave enough room at
the front so the door can close tightly.
Storage times will vary according to the quality
and type of food, the type of packaging or wrap
used (how airtight and moisture-proof) and
the storage temperature. Ice crystals inside a
sealed package are normal. This simply means
that moisture in the food and air inside the
package have condensed, creating ice crystals.
Note
Allow hot foods to cool at room temperature
for 30 minutes, then package and freeze.
Cooling hot foods before freezing saves
energy.
ENGLISH
The following tips may not be applicable
depending on the model.

32 HOW TO USE
ENGLISH
Storing Frozen Food (continued)
Detaching the Shelf
Packaging
Tilt up the front of the shelf and lift it straight
up. Pull the shelf out.
Successful freezing depends on correct
packaging. When you close and seal the
package, it must not allow air or moisture in or
out. If it does, you could have food odor and
taste transfer throughout the refrigerator and
could also dry out frozen food.
Packaging recommendations:
•• Rigid plastic containers with tight-fitting
lids
•• Straight-sided canning/freezing jars
•• Heavy-duty aluminum foil
•• Plastic-coated paper
•• Non-permeable plastic wraps
•• Specified freezer-grade self-sealing plastic
bags
Assembling the Shelf
Tilt the front of the shelf up and guide the rear
shelf hooks into the slots at the desired height.
Then, lower the front of the shelf so that the
hooks drop into the slots.
Follow package or container instructions for
proper freezing methods.
Do not use
•• Bread wrappers
•• Non-polyethylene plastic containers
•• Containers without tight lids
•• Wax paper or wax-coated freezer wrap
•• Thin, semi-permeable wrap
Adjusting the Refrigerator
Shelves
Caution
Make sure that shelves are level from
one side to the other. Failure to do so
may result in the shelf falling or food
spilling.
The shelves in the refrigerator are adjustable
to meet individual storage needs. Your model
may have either glass or wire shelves.
Adjusting the shelves to fit items of different
heights will make finding the exact item you
want easier. Doing so will also reduce the
amount of time the refrigerator door is open
which will save energy.

SMART FUNTIONS 45
Using the Smart Grid Function
When the refrigerator operates in Smart Grid
mode, the Smart Refrigerator function can
control energy usage or delay the operation
of some functions to save energy during peak
usage periods.
This feature responds to notification events
from your utility company to run high energy
consuming tasks during off-peak periods when
demand is lower. These notification events are
known as Demand Response signals.
If the refrigerator receives a Demand Response
signal from the utility company, the refrigerator
will turn on the Grid LED on the refrigerator
display and control its power consumption
according to the signal.
The refrigerator will respond to the signals
received from the utility company as long as
product performance is maintained.
If the refrigerator receives a Demand Response
signal, the refrigerator will operate in Delay
Appliance Load (DAL) or Temporary Appliance
Load Reduction (TALR) mode.
• You can override the Smart Grid function
any time (using the Smart Grid button or
application).
• To use the Smart Grid function, you need
to register your appliance with your electric
utility company.
Smart Grid Application Features
Smart Saving_Demand Response
You can lower energy usage based on Demand
Response (DR) signals from the utility company.
If the refrigerator is operating in Smart Saving
mode according to the DR signal, you can see a
pop up.
Seasonal Energy Savings
Lower energy usage based on time period.
Delay Appliance Load (DAL)
The refrigerator responds to a DAL signal by
providing a moderate load reduction for the
duration of the delay period.
This mode controls functions that consume a lot
of energy such as adjusting the cooling system,
running the defrost cycle, and making ice.
• When the refrigerator operates in DAL
mode, the Grid LED is illuminated on the
refrigerator display.
• DAL mode is automatically deactivated after
the period stipulated by the DAL signal (max.
4 hours) or when you override the Smart
Grid function.
ENGLISH
Smart Grid Function
46 SMART FUNTIONS
ENGLISH
Temporary Appliance Load Reduction (TALR)
LG Open API
The refrigerator responds to a TALR signal by
aggressively reducing the load for a short time
period, typically 10 minutes. This mode reduces
energy consumption by stopping the compressor
and controlling the functions that consume a lot
of energy such as the defrost cycle and fan.
You can manage Smart Grid features for the LG
Smart Refrigerator.
• When the refrigerator operates in TALR
mode, the Grid LED is illuminated on the
refrigerator display.
• TALR mode is automatically deactivated
after the received duration (max. 10
minutes), or when you override the Smart Grid
function. The mode is immediately deactivated
and the refrigerator returns to its normal state
when the door is opened or closed, or the
dispenser is used.
API list
Override Smart Grid Mode
To ignore the Demand Response signal from
the utility company and override the Smart Grid
function, push the Smart Grid button while the
refrigerator is in Smart Grid mode.
When you override the Smart Grid function, the
refrigerator ignores the Demand Response signal
and is no longer controlled by the utility company
until the next Demand Response signal is sent.
You can also override the Smart Grid function
using the smart phone app.

PROCEDURE FOR RESOLVING DISPUTES:
ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND LG ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THIS
LIMITED WARRANTY OR THE PRODUCT SHALL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY THROUGH BINDING
ARBITRATION, AND NOT IN A COURT OF GENERAL JURISDICTION. BINDING ARBITRATION
MEANS THAT YOU AND LG ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL AND TO BRING OR
PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
Definitions. For the purposes of this section, references to “LG” mean LG Electronics U.S.A., Inc., its
parents, subsidiaries and affiliates, and each of their officers, directors, employees, agents, beneficiaries,
predecessors in interest, successors, assigns and suppliers; references to “dispute” or “claim” shall
include any dispute, claim or controversy of any kind whatsoever (whether based in contract, tort,
statute, regulation, ordinance, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal or equitable theory) arising out
of or relating in any way to the sale, condition or performance of the product or this Limited Warranty.
Notice of Dispute. In the event you intend to commence an arbitration proceeding, you must first notify
LG in writing at least 30 days in advance of initiating the arbitration by sending a letter to LG at LG
Electronics, USA, Inc. Attn: Legal Department- Arbitration 1000 Sylvan Ave, Englewood Cliffs 07632.
You and LG agree to engage in good faith discussions in an attempt to amicably resolve your claim. The
notice must provide your name, address, and telephone number; identify the product that is the subject
of the claim; and describe the nature of the claim and the relief being sought. If you and LG are unable to
resolve the dispute within 30 days, either party may proceed to file a claim for arbitration.
LIMITED WARRANTY 67
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 www.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.
Opt Out. You may opt out of this dispute resolution procedure. If you opt out, neither you nor LG can
require the other to participate in an arbitration proceeding. To opt out, you must send notice to LG no later
than 30 calendar days from the date of the first consumer purchaser’s purchase of the product by either: (i)
sending an e-mail to optout@lge.com, with the subject line: “Arbitration Opt Out” or (ii) calling 1-800-9802973. You must include in the opt out e-mail or provide by telephone: (a) your name and address; (b) the
date on which the product was purchased; (c) the product model name or model number; and (d) the serial
number (the serial number can be found (i) on the product; or (ii) online by accessing https://www.lg.com/
us/support/repair-service/schedule-repaircontinued and clicking on “Find My Model & Serial Number”).
You may only opt out of the dispute resolution procedure in the manner described above (that is, by e-mail
or telephone); no other form of notice will be effective to opt out of this dispute resolution procedure.
Opting out of this dispute resolution procedure will not affect the coverage of the Limited Warranty in any
way, and you will continue to enjoy the full benefits of the Limited Warranty. If you keep this product and
do not opt out, then you accept all terms and conditions of the arbitration provision described above.
ENGLISH
Agreement to Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver. Upon failure to resolve the dispute during the
30 day period after sending written notice to LG, you and LG agree to resolve any claims between us only
by binding arbitration on an individual basis, unless you opt out as provided below. 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.

70 LIMITED WARRANTY
PROCEDURE FOR RESOLVING DISPUTES:
ENGLISH
EXCEPT WHERE PROHIBITED AT LAW, ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND LG ARISING OUT
OF OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THIS LIMITED WARRANTY OR THE PRODUCT SHALL BE
RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY THROUGH BINDING ARBITRATION, AND NOT IN A COURT OF GENERAL
JURISDICTION. EXCEPT WHERE PROHIBITED AT LAW, YOU AND LG BOTH IRREVOCABLY AGREE
TO WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL AND TO BRING OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
Definitions. For the purposes of this section, references to “LG” mean LG Electronics Canada,
Inc., its parents, subsidiaries and affiliates, and each of their officers, directors, employees, agents,
beneficiaries, predecessors in interest, successors, assigns and suppliers; references to “dispute”
or “claim” shall include any dispute, claim or controversy of any kind whatsoever (whether based in
contract, tort, statute, regulation, ordinance, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal or equitable
theory) arising out of or relating in any way to the sale, condition or performance of the product or this
Limited Warranty.
Notice of Dispute. In the event you intend to commence an arbitration proceeding, you must first notify
LG in writing at least 30 days in advance of initiating the arbitration by sending a letter to LG Electronics,
Canada, Inc., Attn: Legal Department- Arbitration, 20 Norelco Drive, North York, Ontario M9L 2X6. You
and LG agree to engage in good faith discussions in an attempt to amicably resolve your claim. The
notice must provide your name, address, and telephone number; identify the product that is the subject
of the claim; and describe the nature of the claim and the relief being sought. If you and LG are unable
to resolve the dispute within 30 days, either party may proceed to file a claim for arbitration.
Agreement to Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver. Upon failure to resolve the dispute during
the 30 day period after sending written notice to LG, you and LG agree to resolve any claims between
you and LG only by binding arbitration on an individual basis, unless you opt out as provided below, or
you reside in a jurisdiction that prevents full application of this clause in the circumstances of the claims
at issue (in which case if you are a consumer, this clause will only apply if you expressly agree to the
arbitration). To the extent permitted by applicable law, 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, except to the extent such a prohibition is not permitted
at law, 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 except to
the extent this prohibition is not permitted at law in your province or territory of jurisdiction as it relates
to the claims at issue between you and LG.
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 private and confidential, and conducted on a simplified
and expedited basis before a single arbitrator chosen by the parties under the provincial or territorial
commercial arbitration law and rules of the province or territory of your residence. You must also send a
copy of your written demand to LG at LG Electronics, Canada, Inc., Attn: Legal Department- Arbitration,
20 Norelco Drive, North York, Ontario M9L 2X6. This arbitration provision is governed by your applicable
provincial or territorial commercial arbitration legislation. 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 province or territory of your residence shall govern this Limited
Warranty and any disputes between you and LG except to the extent that such law is preempted by
or inconsistent with applicable federal or provincial/territorial law. Should arbitration not be permitted
for any claim, action, dispute or controversy between you and LG, you and LG attorn to the exclusive
jurisdiction of the courts of the province or territory of your residence for the resolution of the claim,
action, dispute or controversy between you and LG.
LIMITED WARRANTY
71
Hearings and Location. If your claim is for $25,000 or less, you may choose to have the arbitration
conducted solely (1) on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, (2) through a telephonic
hearing, or (3) by an in-person hearing as established by the applicable arbitration rules. If your claim
exceeds $25,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the applicable arbitration rules. Any inperson arbitration hearings will be held at the nearest, most mutually-convenient arbitration location
available within the province or territory in which you reside unless you and LG both agree to another
location or agree to a telephonic arbitration.
Severability and Waiver. If any portion of this Limited Warranty (including these arbitration procedures)
is unenforceable, the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect to the maximum extent
permitted by applicable law. Should LG fail to enforce strict performance of any provision of this Limited
Warranty (including these arbitration procedures), it does not mean that LG intends to waive or has
waived any provision or part of this Limited Warranty.
Opt Out. You may opt out of this dispute resolution procedure. If you opt out, neither you nor LG can
require the other to participate in an arbitration proceeding. To opt out, you must send notice to LG no
later than 30 calendar days from the date of the first consumer purchaser’s purchase of the product
by either (i) sending an e-mail to optout@lge.com, with the subject line: “Arbitration Opt Out;” or (ii)
calling 1-800-980-2973. You must include in the opt out e-mail or provide by telephone: (a) your name
and address; (b) the date on which the product was purchased; (c) the product model name or model
number; and
(d) the serial number (the serial number can be found (i) on the product; or (ii) online by accessing
https://www.lg.com/ca_en/support/repair-service/schedule-repair and clicking on “Find My Model &
Serial Number”).
In the event that you “Opt Out”, the law of the province or territory of your residence shall govern
this Limited Warranty and any disputes between you and LG except to the extent that such law is
preempted by or inconsistent with applicable federal or provincial/territorial law. Should arbitration not
be permitted for any claim, action, dispute or controversy between you and LG, you and LG agree to
attorn to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the province or territory of your residence for the
resolution of the claim, action, dispute or controversy between you and LG.
You may only opt out of the dispute resolution procedure in the manner described above (that is,
by e-mail or telephone); no other form of notice will be effective to opt out of this dispute resolution
procedure. Opting out of this dispute resolution procedure will not affect the coverage of the Limited
Warranty in any way, and you will continue to enjoy the full benefits of the Limited Warranty. If you keep
this product and do not opt out, then you accept all terms and conditions of the arbitration provision
described above.
Conflict of Terms. In the event of a conflict or inconsistency between the terms of this Limited
Warranty and the End User License Agreement (“EULA”) in regards to dispute resolution, the terms
of this Limited Warranty shall control and govern the rights and obligations of the parties and shall take
precedence over the EULA.
ENGLISH
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 unless you seek more than $25,000
in damages, in which case the payment of these fees will be governed by the applicable arbitration
rules. Except as otherwise provided for herein, LG will pay all filing, administration and arbitrator
fees for any arbitration initiated in accordance with the applicable arbitration 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 applicable laws), then the payment of all arbitration fees
will be governed by the applicable arbitration 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 applicable
arbitration 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.
