That panel is probably mics, not netla, though it may look like metal. The job of the waveguide cover is to protect the waveguide (opening) and the magnetron from buildup of food particles and grease. When the grease and food particles build up on and behind the cover, they will carbonize and arc - and maybe even flame up! The solution is to clean it and keep it clean - but if it's too dirty or is burned, it must be replaced. Sometimes it's necessary to remove the cover to clean both sides of it, and to clean the edges of the opening it covers. It is sometimes held in place with a small plastic rivet (or screw) and once that is removed, the cover will slide over a little then drop down. Be VERY careful not to get cut on the potentially sharp edges of the opening, and do not spray anything into the opening. Apply an alcohol-based cleaner (such as the purple kind) and /or gentle scouring powder to a cloth or paper towel and carefully wipe it out, then when it's dry, reinstall the cover and the rivet. I suggest to my customers that they NEVER use any ammonia-based cleaner (like the blue stuff) on a microwave, since the ammonia will crack and distort polycarbonate plastics.

We bought a microwave from a 'seconds' store, minus the manual. Following the advice given above I found the model number and search the LG site for product manuals.
The site isn't intuiative, but if you are patient you can find the manual in PDF form and download it to your computer.
Thanks for the help MicrowaveSvc

I found a copy for my LG microwave on retrevo.com. They list several brands and models. It was free to download and will even save it on their site. You do have to register your email address, and get a password. Mine is printing out as we "speak".

Exactly the same problem over here, but after our house was hit by lightning, so not really surprised about the cause of the problem. If you look closely, you can still see the displays on a very low light level. I can still choose a microwave program, turn the time etc, and see the time changing, but start won't just just work.

Push button that says 'clock' then use the '10min' button to set hour, '1min' to set 10 minute intervals, then '10sec' button to set minutes. Click 'clock' button again to save. The trick is to make sure the the colon like dot separator on the clock is flashing when you try to make changes. Did my head in working this out... in the end I had to ask my wife...
