Questions & Answers
What year was this microwave made
Asked by Karin February 4, 2021
Hello, it was manufactured last 2017.^venette
What are the dimensions
Asked by Lulu February 3, 2021
Hello, here are the dimensions, 24"W x 13"H x 19"D..^Venette
What wattage is this
Asked by Connie January 17, 2021
Hi, is it convenient that the panel is behind the door? Thank you
Asked by Ariadna January 11, 2021
While it's a steeper learning curve for easy use than the "everything on the front" layout, it's a cleaner look. Once you're used to it, I'd say it's only less convenient when you want to do something besides basic cooking, like setting the clock or selecting a defrost mode.
How much does it weigh?
Asked by Sady8 January 4, 2021
Not sure but not heavy, carried it up 3 flights of stairs.

Turn table broke
Asked by Jen November 29, 2020
Hi, please check with Home Depot or call our customer support via Facebook or Twitter.^Venette
I bought this microwave last night (2-8-21) at Home Depot for $188. I also purchased a 2 years protection plan for $25. The microwave seem fine when I got home and set it up. Today (2-9-21) literally less than 24 hours, I got home from work and the microwave is dead. Literally. It is not turning on- no sound, no lights - buttons does NOTHING!!
I am in complete shock.
I unplugged the microwave, waited a while before plugging it back in just to make sure, and it is still not working. I even plugged our toaster in the same socket just to see if something was wrong with the outlet, but the toaster worked great. So, this simply means it’s the microwave that is trash.
I am incredibly disappointed!
These companies are are manufacturing cheaply made, crappy products to sell us. It is so hard to find good appliances these days that actually lasts.
I previously owned a 1.6 cubic ft Panasonic that died on is two days ago after 10 years of use.
I looked at a few new Panasonic in different stores before buying this LG, but they were poorly made.

Love my LG Microwave
It has all the features I was looking for. Runs very quietly and love the melody instead of the annoying beeps when cooking is done. So easy to use. Perfect size for me.
My sister bought this for me to replace the one I had damaged by water. It is powerful. It’s defrost option is really nice you can do it by weight . It has a cute little tune it plays when the food is done. I like that. We can’t put regular plates that are made of ceramic, but need a more glass made plates because of the high heat If you can understand.. The timer is a nice feature... and there is a feature that is a slider on the out side of the door you can go from 10 seconds to higher just by touching a plus sign ➕ or minus sign ➖ Awesome
I had to find the most powerful microwave that I could that would fit in a small space. This is actually my second one, after the first one failed after several years of daily use. It is a wonderful microwave and I would recommend it to anyone.
I love this microwave! Dinner plate fits inside and...
I love this microwave! Dinner plate fits inside and heats everything hot and evenly! Spills wipe up easily inside and I love it’s simple clean look!

Digital clock failure
I purchased this microwave about two years ago and recently the digital clock has started to fail. Now I can read the cook time or clock display. I see that many others are reporting this same kind of failure on other LG microwaves to it certainly seems to be a manufacturing defect.

Makes me want my 15 year old GE microwave back.
We've had this microwave for about 2 months now and I've tried to like it, but just can't. I like that it looks sleek and modern, but that's where my love for this unit ends. Power was a disappointment, our 15 year old GE was also 1200W and heated much faster than this unit does. Rolls that took 16 seconds in the GE take 22 in the LG. Then there's the control panel which is downright infuriating. Most annoying is that it can't handle fast input (like my 15 year old GE could), and forces you to add a slight pause between inputs or else it just ignores you entirely. LG's support says this is 'by design' and can't be changed. If it was LG's intent to aggravate customers then they succeeded wildly. I also find it annoying that their 'quick start' buttons like popcorn don't actually start the microwave, you still have to hit start after pressing popcorn (and of course waiting the obligatory pause period between buttons). Finally, LG only sells a 30" trim kit, not a 27", which is silly since this easily fits in 27" microwave cabinets, which are very common. I found an aftermarket trim kit that worked perfectly, but if I hadn't already bought the trim kit, this microwave would have been returned or thrown off a bridge.

Looks Great, performs poorly.
My last microwave finally died after 23 years. I bought this microwave in January 2018. It had good reviews for the price. I was not impressed. The timer controls don't respond to touch frequently and are awkward. It takes 15+ minutes to cook three medium potatoes sometimes. Every time I cook something, I assume I have to add time to the box instructions, or the food will be lukewarm. The defroster cooks the edges and leaves the middle frozen. As of June 2020, the display numbers are disappearing one by one, so I can't read the clock or the food timer. I will never consider another LG product after this microwave failed after 2 1/2 years of use.
