MICROWAVE COOKING TIPS

Amount of Food

• If you increase or decrease

the amount of food you prepare, the time it takes to cook that food will also change. For example, if you double a recipe, add a little more than half the original cooking time. Check for doneness and, if necessary, add more time in small increments.

Starting Temperature of Food

• The lower the temperature

of the food being put into the microwave oven, the longer it takes to cook. Food at room temperature reheats more quickly than food at refrigerator temperature.

Composition of Food

• Food with a lot of fat and sugar

heats faster than food containing a lot of water. Fat and sugar also reach a higher temperature than water during the cooking process.

• The more dense the food,

the longer it takes to heat. Very dense food like meat takes longer to heat than lighter, more porous food like sponge cakes.

Size and Shape

• Smaller pieces of food

cook faster than larger pieces. Also, same-shaped pieces cook more evenly than different-shaped pieces.

• With foods that have different thicknesses,

the thinner parts cook faster than the thicker parts Place the thinner parts of chicken wings and legs in the center of the dish.

Stirring and Turning Foods

• Stirring and turning foods

spreads heat quickly to the center of the dish and avoids overcooking at the outer edges of the food.

Covering Food

Cover food to:

• reduce

splattering

• shorten

cooking times

• keep

food moist

Releasing Pressure in Foods

• Several foods

(for example: baked potatoes, sausages, egg yolks, and some fruits) are tightly covered by a skin or membrane. Steam can build up under the membrane during cooking, causing the food to burst. To relieve the pressure and to prevent bursting, pierce these foods before cooking with a fork, cocktail pick, or toothpick.

Using Standing Time

• Always allow food to stand

either in or out of the oven after cooking power stops. Standing time after defrosting and cooking allows the temperature to evenly spread throughout the food, improving the cooking results. For inside oven standing time, program a 0 power second stage of the cooking cycle.

See Cooking with More than One Cook Cycle.

• The length of the standing time

depends on how much food you are cooking and how dense it is.

Sometimes it can be as short as the time it takes you to remove the food from the oven and take it to the serving table. However, with larger, denser food items, the standing time may be as long as 10 minutes.

Arranging Food

For best results, place food evenly on the plate. You can do this in several ways:

• If you are cooking several items of the same food,

such as baked potatoes, place them in a ring pattern for uniform cooking.

• When cooking foods of uneven shapes or thickness, such as chicken breasts,

place the smaller or thinner area of the food towards the center of the dish where it will be heated last.

• Layer thin slices of meat

on top of each other.

• When you cook or reheat whole fish, score

the skin to prevent cracking.

• Do not

let food or a container touch the top or sides of the oven. This will prevent possible arcing.

MICROWAVE COOKING TIPS

Using Aluminum Foil

Metal containers should not be used in a microwave oven. However, if you have purchased food which is prepackaged in an aluminum foil container, refer to the instructions on the package. When using aluminum foil containers, cooking times may be longer because microwaves will only penetrate the exposed top of the food and not the bottom or the sides. If using aluminum containers without package instructions, follow these guidelines:

• Place

the aluminum foil container in a glass bowl and add water so that it covers the bottom of the container, but not more than ¼ in. (.64 cm) deep. This ensures even heating of the container bottom.

• Always remove

the container lid to avoid damage to the oven.

• Use only

undamaged containers.

• Do not use

containers taller than ¾ in. (1.9 cm).

• Container must be

at least half filled.

• To avoid arcing,

there must be a minimum ¼ in.(.64 cm) between the aluminum container and the walls of the oven and also between two aluminum containers.

• Always place

the container on the turntable.

• Shield

parts of food that may cook quickly, such as wing tips and leg ends of poultry, with small pieces of aluminum foil.

• Heating food

in aluminum foil containers usually takes up to double the time compared to reheating in plastic, glass, china, or paper containers.

The cooking time will vary depending upon the type of container you use.

• Let food stand

for 2 to 3 minutes after heating so that heat is spread evenly throughout the container.

Do Not Can or Sterilize in Oven

• Do not

try to can food in the oven. Closed glass jars may explode, resulting in damage to the oven.

• Do not

use the microwave oven to sterilize objects

(baby bottles, etc.). It is difficult to keep the oven at the high temperature needed for sterilization.

Removing the Rack

• When popping commercially packaged popcorn, remove the rack and drip pan from the oven.

Do not place the bag of microwave popcorn on the rack or under the rack. Leave the glass tray in place at all times.

CAUTION

:

Popping microwave popcorn with rack

and drip pan in place can cause fire or

damage to the microwave oven.

MICROWAVE COOKING TIPS

Cooking Comparison Guide

Cooking with your new oven offers a wide variety of food preparation options: microwave cooking, convection cooking, and combination cooking.

Microwave cooking

uses very short, high-frequency radio waves. The movement of the microwaves through the food generates heat and cooks most foods faster than regular methods, while retaining their natural texture and moisture. Microwave cooking heats food directly, not the cookware or the interior of the oven. Reheating is easy and defrosting is particularly convenient because less time is spent in food preparation.

Convection cooking

constantly circulates heated air around the food, creating even browning and sealed-in flavor by the constant motion of hot air over the food surfaces.

Combination cooking

combines microwave energy with convection to cook with speed and accuracy, while browning and crisping to perfection.

Timed cooking can be set with microwave cooking, convection cooking, and combination cooking. Preset the desired length of cooking time and the oven turns off automatically.

MICROWAVE COOKING TIPS

COOKWARE GUIDE

Microwave Cooking

Most heat-resistant, non-metallic cookware is safe for use in the microwave oven.

Testing Cookware Before Using

1. Place the empty cookware in the microwave oven.

2. Measure 1 cup of water in a glass measuring cup and place it in the oven beside the cookware.

3. Microwave on 100% power for 1 minute. If the dish is warm, it should not be used for microwave cooking.

Convection Cooking

• Metal pans are recommended for all types of baked products, but especially where browning or crusting is important.

• Dark or dull finish metal pans are best for breads and pies because they absorb heat and produce a crisper crust.

• Shiny aluminum pans are better for cakes, cookies, or muffins because these pans reflect heat and help produce a light, tender crust.

• Glass or glass-ceramic casserole or baking dishes are best suited for egg and cheese recipes to provide easy cleanup.

Combination Cooking

• Glass or glass-ceramic baking containers are recommended. Do not use items with metal trim as they may cause arcing (sparking) with oven wall or oven shelf, damaging the cookware, the shelf, or the oven.

• Heat-resistant plastic microwave cookware (safe to

450°F) may be used, but is not recommended for foods that require crusting or all-around browning, because plastic is a poor conductor of heat.

OPERATION

SENSOR OPERATING

INSTRUCTIONS

Sensor Cook cooks favorite foods without selecting cooking times and power levels.

The oven automatically determines required cooking time for each food item. When the internal sensor detects a certain amount of humidity coming from the food, it tells the oven how much longer to heat.

The display shows the remaining heating time. For best results when sensor cooking, follow these recommendations.

1. Food cooked with the sensor system should be at normal storage temperature.

2. The glass tray and the outside of the container should be dry to assure best cooking results.

3. Foods should always be covered loosely with microwavable plastic wrap, waxed paper, or a lid.

4. Do not open the door or touch

STOP/CLEAR

during the sensing time. When sensing time is over, the oven beeps and the remaining cooking time will appear in the display window.

At this time you can open the door to stir, turn, or rearrange the food.

SENSOR COOKING GUIDE

Appropriate containers and coverings help assure good sensor cooking results.

1. Always use microwavable containers and cover them with lids or vented plastic wrap.

2. Never use tight-sealing plastic covers. They can prevent steam from escaping and cause food to overcook.

3. Match the amount to the size of the container.

Fill containers at least half full for best results.

4. Be sure the outside of the cooking container and the inside of the microwave oven are dry before placing food in the oven. Beads of moisture turning into steam can mislead the sensor.

TIPS FOR CONVECTION

COOKING

This section provides cooking instructions and procedures for each convection function.

Convection cooking circulates hot air through the oven cavity with a fan. The constantly moving air surrounds the food to heat the outer portion quickly, creating even browning and sealed-in flavor through the constant motion of hot air over the food surfaces.

To use convection cooking, turn the dial to select the

Convection or Combination modes.

DO NOT USE THE

OVEN WITHOUT THE TURNTABLE IN PLACE.

1.

Always use the metal rack

on the turntable when convection cooking.

2.

Do not cover

the turntable or metal rack with aluminum foil. It interferes with the flow of a

4.

Use convection cooking

for items like soufflés, breads, cookies, angel food cakes, pizza, and for some meat and fish.

5.

The oven comes

equipped with a metal tray which can be used for cooking in convection mode or combination mode.

6.

No special techniques are necessary

to adapt favorite oven recipes to convection cooking; but reduce the oven temperature by 25°F from the recommended temperature when cooking packaged foods in convection mode.

7.

When baking

cakes, cookies, breads, rolls, or other baked foods, most recipes call for preheating.

Preheat the empty oven just as with a regular oven.

You can start heavier dense foods such as meats, casseroles, and poultry without preheating.

8.

All heatproof

cookware or metal utensils can be used in convection cooking.

9.

As in conventional cooking,

the distance of the food from the heat source affects cooking results.

Refer to the charts in this owner's manual.

10.

Use metal utensils

only for convection cooking.

Never use for microwave or combination cooking since arcing and damage to the oven may occur.

11.

After preheating,

if the door remains closed, the oven automatically holds at the preheated temperature for 30 minutes.

PRECAUTIONS

• The oven cavity, door, turntable, roller rest, metal tray, metal rack, and cooking utensils become very hot.

USE THICK OVEN GLOVES when removing the food, cooking utensils, metal rack, metal tray, and turntable from the oven after convection cooking.

• Do not use lightweight plastic containers, plastic wraps, or paper products during any convection cycle.

- 22 -

OPERATION

CONVECTION

During convection cooking, a heating element is used to raise the temperature of the air inside the oven.

Convection cooking temperature ranges from 100°F to

450°F.

It is best to preheat the oven when convection cooking.

Note: Reduce oven temperature by 25°F from the temperature recommended on packaged foods.

The baking time may vary according to the food condition or individual preference.

Example: To set for convection cooking at 325°F for

45 minutes with preheating.

OPERATION

TIPS FOR COMBINATION

COOKING

This section provides instructions for each combination cooking function. Combination microwave-convection cooking shortens the cooking time for foods that normally need a long time to cook. It also leaves meat juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside.

In combination cooking, the convection heat and microwave energy alternate automatically. The oven has three preprogrammed settings that make it easy to use combination cooking.

HELPFUL HINTS FOR

COMBINATION COOKING

1.

Meats

can be roasted directly on the metal rack or in a shallow roasting pan placed on the rack. When using the metal rack, check the cooking guide for information on proper use.

2.

Less tender

cuts of beef can be roasted and tenderized using oven cooking bags.

3.

When baking,

check for doneness after cooking time is up. If not completely done, let stand in oven for a few minutes to complete cooking.

PRECAUTIONS

1. All cookware used for combination cooking must be

BOTH microwave-safe and oven-safe.

2. During combination baking, some baking cookware may cause arcing when it comes in contact with the oven walls or metal accessory racks. Arcing is a discharge of electricity that occurs when microwaves come in contact with metal.

- If arcing occurs, immediately stop the cooking cycle and place a heat resistant dish between the pan and the metal rack.

- Use the metal tray supplied with the oven. It has rubber feet that help prevent arcing.

- If arcing occurs with other baking cookware, do not use them for combination cooking.

Notes:

• The temperature range has 9 steps from 250°F to

450°F.

• During combination cooking, the exhaust fan in the vent hood automatically turns on at the 1-speed

(lowest) setting to protect the oven.

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 the 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 or on a microwave roasting rack to catch drippings.

• For more defrost help, read Defrosting Tips following the Auto Defrost Table.

For best results, loosen or remove coverings on food.

Note:

Do not

use recycled paper products in the microwave oven. They sometimes contain impurities that cause arcing and sparking.

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,

remove 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 the food 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.

COOKING GUIDE

CONVECTION BAKING GUIDELINES

1. Always use the metal rack when convection baking.

Place food directly on rack or place in metal tray and then place tray on rack.

2. Aluminum pans conduct heat quickly. For most convection baking, light, shiny finishes give best results because they prevent overbrowning in the time it takes to cook the center areas. Pans with dull

(satin-finish) bottoms are recommended for cake pans and pie pans for best bottom browning.

3. Dark or non-shiny finishes, glass, and pyroceramic absorb heat which may result in dry, crisp crusts.

4. Preheating the oven is recommended when baking foods by convection.

5. To prevent uneven heating and save energy, open the oven door to check food as seldom as possible.

COOKING GUIDE

HEATING/REHEATING GUIDE

To heat or reheat successfully in a microwave oven, follow these guidelines: Measure the amount of food in order to determine the time needed to reheat. Arrange the food in a circular pattern for best results. Room temperature food will heat faster than refrigerated food. Canned foods should be taken out of the can and placed in a microwave-safe container. The food will heat more evenly if covered with a microwave-safe lid or vented plastic wrap. Remove the cover carefully to prevent steam burns. Use the following chart as a guide for reheating cooked food.

SMART FEATURES

BEFORE USING TAG ON

The Tag On function allows you to conveniently use LG Smart Diagnosis™, set the cook mode and communicate with the appliance using a smart phone. To use the Tag On function:

1. Download the SmartThinQ application to a smart phone.

2. Turn on the NFC (Near Field Communication) function in the smart phone.- The Tag On function can only be used with smart phones equipped with the NFC function and based on the Android operating system (OS).

TURNING ON THE SMART PHONE’S NFC FUNCTION

1. Enter the

Settings

menu of the smart phone and select

Share

& Connect

under WIRELESS &

NETWORKS.

2. Set

NFC

and

Direct/Android

Beam

to ON and select NFC.

3. Check Use Read and

Write/P2P receive.

NOTE

Depending on the smart phone manufacturer and Android OS version, the NFC activation process may differ.

Refer to the manual of the smart phone for details.

USING THE TAG ON FUNCTION

THE TAG ON ICON

Look for the Tag On icon next to the display on the control panel. Position the smart phone next to the icon when using the Tag On function with the LG Smart

Diagnosis™, cook mode setting of the SmartThinQ application.

- 39 -

SMART FEATURES

THE NFC ANTENNA POSITION

When using the Tag On function, position the smart phone so that the NFC antenna inside the back of the smart phone matches the position of the Tag On icon on the appliance. (The position of the antenna cannot be seen, so the SmartThinQ app will attempt to find it and display a target range for the antenna on the smart phone's screen.)

If the app is not able to show a target range, position the center back of the smart phone over the Tag On icon on the appliance. If the connection is not made immediately, move the smart phone very slightly in a widening circular motion until the application verifies the connection.

Because of the characteristics of NFC, if the transmission distance is too far, or if there is a metal sticker or a thick case on the phone, transmission will not be good.

Press [ ] in the SmartThinQ app for a more detailed guide on how to use the Tag On function.

USING TAG ON WITH APPS

Touch an LG appliance's Tag On logo with an NFC-equipped smart phone, and the SmartThinQ apps use the Tag

On function.

Smart Diagnosis™

Allows you to diagnose and troubleshoot problems with your microwave oven.

MAINTENANCE

CARING FOR YOUR

MICROWAVE OVEN

To make sure the microwave oven looks good and works well for a long time, maintain it properly. For proper care, follow these instructions carefully.

For interior surfaces: Wash often with warm, sudsy water and a sponge or soft cloth. Use only mild, nonabrasive soaps or a mild detergent.

Keep the areas clean where the door and oven frame touch when closed.

Wipe well with a clean cloth.

Over time, stains can occur on the surfaces as the result of food particles spattering during cooking.

This is normal.

For stubborn soil, boil a cup of water in the oven for 2 to 3 minutes. Steam will soften the soil. To get rid of odors inside the oven, boil a cup of water with some lemon juice or vinegar in it.

To clean the glass tray and rotating ring,

wash in mild, sudsy water.

For heavily soiled areas use a mild cleanser and scouring sponge.

The glass tray and rotating ring are dishwasher safe.

Metal

Rack

Metal

Tray

Glass

Tray

Rotating

Ring

For exterior surfaces and control panel:

Use a soft cloth sprayed with glass cleaner.

Apply the glass cleaner to the soft cloth; do not spray directly on the oven.

Note: Abrasive cleansers, steel wool pads, gritty wash cloths, some paper towels,

etc., can damage the control panel and the interior and exterior oven surfaces.

MAINTENANCE

CLEANING THE GREASE

FILTERS

1.

Unplug

the microwave oven.

2.

To remove

grease filters, slide each filter to the side.

Pull filters downward and push to the other side. The filter will drop out.

CHARCOAL FILTER

REPLACEMENT

If the oven is vented inside, the charcoal filter should be replaced every 6 to 12 months, and more often if necessary. The charcoal filter cannot be cleaned.

To order a new charcoal filter, contact the Parts

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.

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 the microwave oven.

CHINA:

bowls, cups, serving plates, and platters without metallic trim.

METAL DECORATION:

Metal-trimmed or metal-banded dinnerware, casserole dishes, etc. The metal trim interferes with normal cooking and may damage the oven.

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, semi-rigid 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.

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.

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.

BROWN PAPER:

Avoid using brown paper bags.

They absorb too much heat and could burn.

Note:

Do not use recycled paper products in the microwave oven. They sometimes contain impurities that cause arcing and sparking.

FLAWED OR CHIPPED UTENSILS:

Any utensil that is cracked, flawed, or chipped may break in the oven.

NEVER use paper products in the convection oven.

METAL TWIST TIES:

Remove metal twist ties from plastic or paper bags.

They become hot and could cause a fire.

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 work

• 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 was pressed.

• 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 foil strips used to prevent overcooking.

If food is undercooked:

• check recipe to be sure all directions (amount, time, and power levels) were correctly followed.

• be sure microwave oven is on a separate circuit.

• 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 wire twist ties weren’t used.

• be sure oven wasn’t operated when empty.

• make sure metal rack (if used) is properly installed on

4 supports.

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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q. Can I use a rack in my microwave oven to reheat or cook on two levels at once?

A. Only use the rack that is supplied with your microwave oven. Use of any other rack can result in poor cooking performance and/or arcing and may damage your oven.

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 ¾ 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. The glass tray does not move.

A. The glass tray is not correctly in place. It should be correct-side up and sitting firmly on the center hub.

The support is not operating correctly. Remove the glass tray and restart the oven. Cooking without the glass tray can give you poor results.

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 key.

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 steam out of the top vent.

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.

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.

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 [email protected], 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/us/support/repair-service/schedule-repair-continued 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.
