The back surface of the microwave door has a clear see through plastic sheet covering the door.
Shown as PN 1002 on your parts breakdown on the door parts list.
Mine bubbled up and a small burn hole /spot appeared after 3 months use.
Does this part need to be on the door? Possibly to block micro waves from escaping? Creating a Health and safety issue?
The LG Factory service man had never seen this plastic before and stated it was a packing tape/cover and should be removed at start up. I think it should be on the door for safety reasons stated. If it has a part number it is a functional part of the Macrowave and is required on the oven for safe operation. I don't plan on using the oven without a written Statement from LG Technical Department providing me with
correct method to proceed in a safe manner of operation.
ANSWER Hello Googe! Yes, the part does need to be replaced if the part has become defective. Anytime any part of the door of a microwave has become defective/damaged it suggested that it needs to be replaced. Your part number is 3536W1A012B. Thanks.
