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.

Customer Reviews

1.6 cu. ft. Over the Range Microwave Oven in Stainless Steel is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 623.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I cannot recommend this product at all and am very sorry I purchased it. First off, the descripti... I cannot recommend this product at all and am very sorry I purchased it. First off, the description is very misleading on the features. The so called "automatic" features are anything but automatic. They simply enter a pre-programmed time and power into the unit, nothing else. There are no inside sensors as would be expected on an automatic cooking device (like my previous oven had.) As such, things are usually over cooked, and occasionally undercooked because your serving sizes are going to vary. It has not been right yet on many dozens of attempts. The unit does NOT have a kitchen timer, something that has been on microwave ovens for decades. (My last two had separate cooking and kitchen timer settings.) Instead, they tell you to basically cook nothing at power level zero to use the device as a kitchen timer. Basically, run the fan, turntable, light, etc all to use the oven as a timer. And, of course, that means you cannot cook while doing this stupid function. DUMB! My previous 12 year old Microwave had the same power rating, yet this takes 30% longer to do the same tasks than the old oven did. I question the power claim. The exhaust fan is useless, and is VERY VERY noisey. We have an outside exhaust system, it was installed correctly (and checked), yet it does not seem to pull anything off the stove at all. Makes a lot of noise, but smoke is not being pulled towards the vents. And the small filters at the bottom where the air is supposedly sucked in too easily fall out as they improperly fit the space. Also note that if the bottom of the oven gets too hot, this fan comes on automatically for quite some time, and cannot be manually turned off. Not sure I like this feature. Missing are a night light setting on the over under oven lamp. BUT, it is too dim to really be useful for a stove lamp anyway. It has just one small bulb rather than two on most units making it basically useless. There are buttons on the panel that are meaningless, like "Time" (which I thought was a timer function - nope.) You can press it before entering cooking time, except that you can just enter cooking time directly anyway, so you don't need to press it. I suspect it is for multi-stage cooking, but I have NEVER used that feature on any oven. There is no turntable off button for putting in large rectangular glass pan (for example), and you are warned not to run the microwave without the bottom glass plate in the oven. There is a mid-level (removable) grate that can be used for this purpose, but then it reduces the height significantly of anything by more than half the original space, so forget cooking a whole chicken this way. Big oversight in my opinion. It has an "energy saver" button. But what does that do? It basically just turns off the clock display when the oven is not in use. That is all. Seriously, just how much energy could that small display use in a year? Maybe a dollar? And note if you set energy save, and you open and close the door, that function is disabled until you press the button each and every time again. AND, if any other feature of the oven is in use (light, fan) this button does nothing. DUMB! I love the big stainless handle, but it gets quite hot if you are cooking on the stove below, so beware that you can burn yourself on it if not careful. On the plus side, the unit looks good, the stainless steel seem a reasonable quality. The 30 second quick start, and the plus/minus keys for adding or subtracting 10 seconds are useful. But, if it was not such a hassle to install a new oven, I would get rid of this now and buy something else. I am NOT at all impressed or happy with this purchase.

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!!
