Cleaning Your Microwave Regularly

Keeping your LG microwave clean is not just about hygiene; it’s about performance and longevity. Regular cleaning prevents the buildup of food particles and grease, which can affect the microwave’s efficiency. Be sure to wipe down the interior with a damp cloth and mild detergent at least once a week. Additionally, ensure the exterior, including the door seal, is free from dirt and grime.

Using Your Microwave Properly

Understanding how to use your LG microwave correctly can significantly extend its lifespan. Always use microwave-safe containers and avoid metal objects, which can cause sparks and damage the interior. Also, evenly distributing food in the container can prevent excessive strain on the microwave’s magnetron by heating food more efficiently.

Scheduling Regular Maintenance

Like any other appliance, your LG microwave benefits from regular check-ups. Schedule an annual inspection with a certified technician to ensure all components are functioning correctly. This practice can help catch issues before they lead to more significant problems.
