Rated 2 out of 5Â by tommyfw Loudest Home Appliance I have ever owned
We were desperate for an over the range microwave as ours had died after 17 years. We priced out the replacement from GE and figured we could do better, price-wise, than $700. We traveled to multiple stores looking for something in house. It seems that there are not too many models actually kept on store premises these days.
We ended up taking the LG Microwave as it was in the store and at a price point we liked/could afford.
This microwave has some functional problems such as being the single loudest device in our home--including vacuum cleaners. If you turn on the fan even at low speeds it sounds like a jet engine. The other major problem is the rotary plate does not stay on properly and makes an annoying grinding noise. You have to stop the microwave and move the glass plate to get it to stop for even a few minutes.
All in all it is the worst appliance we have ever purchased. I would not recommend this device to anyone.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Stbird Budget unit, looks good but noisy.
The unit has all the features I need and fit my monetary budget. I needed a SS unit to replace the white GE model I had, to match the rest of my new appliances. The door on this model does not close with the smoothness and quietness of my old unit. The unit functions well for cooking and heating but it is very noisy compared to my old unit. I have to turn up my TV when it is in use to hear the programs. You would think the company that did so well making quiet dishwashers would have put that kind of thought into their Microwave ovens. If this is all your budget allows I would recommend this unit. If you can afford more do so and try to hear it in use before your purchase.

I love this microwave, it was very easy to install and looks better in person than the pictures online. I read reviews about how ot was loud while in use. The noise comes from the fan because the fan is on low while the microwave is in use. It's not that loud and doesn't bother me at all. It lets me know it's on so I never forget about something I left heating inside. There's a nice reminder beep after its finished heating so you don't forget there's something inside as well. I have two small kids and 3 dogs so I can easily get distracted from what I was doing in the kitchen so these features are great for me. Very good price for the stainless steel and makes my kitchen look 10 times better than before and gives me my counter space back from my old microwave. Love it!

After only 15 days it made a loud sound (croaked) and died. The LG mechanic came to check it and said the fuse blew. He came to repair the micro without a spare fuse. After a week he put the new fuse in, but it blew again. He said the transformer was bad. A week later, he came with the transformer and new fuse. The fuse blew again. He said that the condenser, transformer and magnetron was bad. A week later he replaced all of them and it worked. Took 3 weeks to repair.
It has become extremely noisy (add fan noise as well) and seems it will blow up anytime. This is a bad microwave. A waste of time, money and the cheap cost will buy you a lot of inconvenience. Avoid !!!!
