Electrical Safety Recall

Electrical Safety Recall

SYDNEY, July 17/Medianet International-AsiaNet /--

LG Electronics is voluntarily recalling selected microwave ovens (manufactured between August 2007 to February 2008) in order to repair a fault which may pose a risk of electric shock to the user.

The products are being recalled because in some cases an internal part of the unit may be loose which may cause an electrical short circuit which will trip the household’s safety switch. In rare cases this may result in an electric shock to the user in households that do not have a safety switch. This issue does not affect other LG products.

LG Electronics will inspect and, if necessary, repair the unit at no cost to consumers.

Although any risk of electric shock is low, customers are asked to cease use of the product until it has been inspected and repaired.

Customers with the following appliance model numbers and serial number range should contact the Customer Information Line on 0508 643 156 to arrange for an appointment to service the appliance.

Model numbers:
MS-2346VR, MS2347GR
Serial number range:
Serial numbers commencing 708 to 802
Manufactured: August 2007 to February 2008

LG Electronics is liaising with the New Zealand Ministry of Consumer Affairs and New Zealand Ministry of Economic Development in relation to the recall process.

For further information contact the Customer Information Line on 0508 643 156.

LG Electronics would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused to customers.
