Customer Questions & Answers

I thought LG was the top of the line. Why is this rated 2 stars compared to cheaper models

Asked by: Anonymous
Personally, it was their delivery system that bothered me so much about LG. Their staff was unhelpful, the microwave did not come with all the components to hook up the vent, it came damaged, and overall I've not had a good experience with their customer support. Would not recommend. Ever.

We just bouth one and now wonder from the reviews if it's a good choice or a lemon...has anyone been satisfied with it...We are now thinking of returning it and replacing it with a GE...being Canadian, we can't enlist or buy any warranty...can someone help us in finding a good one...thanks.
Asked by: ronny
I would return it if you can. I am VERY disappointed with this. I had a GE before this one, and while it had problems with service (expensive parts), the features and operation were 200% better than this guy. Send it back. I wish I could.

1.6 cu. ft. Over the Range Microwave Oven in Stainless Steel is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 685.

Don't understand the reviews about this oven not having a timer. I bought this model LMV1683ST earlier this week. It was fairly easy to install, and If you download the Owners Manual from the Home Depot page on this oven, and look at page 12, it shows the simple operation of the timer. It works. The exhaust can easily be set to exhaust from the top or back of unit. It does everything I want in a microwave oven. Only time will tell if it holds up without any problems, but for now.... I'm happy with the purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Died after 3 years We have now had to buy our second LG LMV1683ST. We purchased one in 2013 that ceased functioning early this year. We bought another even though we were so unhappy with the longevity of the first one (as the cabinets were already drilled for this model and it was easier to install). Hopefully the new one won't die so quickly. While it looks nice I can't give a product that dies in 3 years anything more than 2 stars. Also, it is worth noting that if anything ever happens to this unit it will cost more money for a service call to attempt to repair the old one than it would to simply buy a new one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Died after 3 1/2 years I bought the same model microwave 3 1/2 yrs ago. It died recently. I bought this one to replace it and match my range. I hope this one lasts longer. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Although rated at 1000W cooking output, I'd question that, as it takes longer now to heat food than my previous Kenmore, also rated at 1000W (but what's another 30 seconds!!!). The templates that came for installation were a bit off; but once installed, it worked like a charm. Wish: 1. it does not have the express 1,2,3,4,5 minute button like our previous one, but it does have the 30 second button. 2. Only one light setting...I will change this to a E17 LED bulb once the current 30 watt bulb dies. I don't like wasting energy. 3. The exhaust fan is LOUD, extremely loud, but it does the job great No issues so far after two weeks. Price is great! As long as it holds up, I'm happy.

The microwave is very easy to use, not a lot of fancy bells and whistles that we do not need, just straightforward cooking, defrosting, softening and melting, and corn popping. Easy to follow cooking instructions. Very heavy and solidly built, appears to be of excellent quality, plenty of room inside. Installation is not a one-man job. The oven is quite heavy and of course is installed overhead. But we were able to accomplish the installation ourselves with no professional experience even though our space was a little small and required modification. The only thing lacking in this model is a kitchen timer. Not essential but would be nice.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WORST Microwave I've Ever Purchased - Deserves 0 Stars Purchased this microwave 1 1/2 yrs ago and it has had to be repaired every 6 months. 1st time it was covered, but not the next 2 times and it's been the same problem each time, obviously defective. All of a sudden it just stops heating whatever you put inside of it. Repairman comes, replaces a part and 6 months later, same problem. Should have just purchased a new one since it costs as much to repair. Contacted customer service, but LG does not stand behind their products. Will NEVER purchase an LG microwave again!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Could It Be Any Louder? I've had this product for leas than a month so still getting used to and seems to works great but its freakin LOUD. Like, have to turn up the TV from the other room loud. Super annoying. Also it doesn't seem to have a separate timer in case youre using your stove and oven at the same time. Which is also quite a pain. I am going to review Home Depot's return policy on appliances and crossing my fingers I can exchange it. If I'm stuck with it, so be it, I'm sure I'll get used to it. But these are big enough pet peeves for me to not buy it again and make me want to voice my concerns on here. I never thought a microwave would need so much research so thats my bad, just needed an LG to match my other appliances. Lesson learned.
