Rated 2 out of 5 by from Missing Coupler What is the piece called that the glass tray sits on to rotate? Is it a coupler that sits on the shaft that rotates the glass?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from timer I had several microwave in the past and in number pad all of them had a timer. separate timer. For example if I'm cooking something over stovetop and I need to time it " like alarm" I used to use the timer on the microwave, and this LG model doesn't have it. Also, light should have 2 levels: dim and bright.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased! I purchased this Microwave 3 years ago and I am completely satisfied! Its a beautiful unit, cooks well and matches the other stainless appliances, my kitchen. I would not hesitate to purchased another or to recommend the LG brand to anyone! I don't know why I waited so long to compliment LG on this product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed Just purchased an LG kitchen suite, love the fridge, stove and dishwasher but am disappointed with the minimal features of this microwave. Did not pay close enough attention...everything else has LED blue lighting but microwave is green, no express cook buttons, and no timer. These seem like pretty basic features?!?!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Microwave ease to use, lots of features and has a rack inside for double use

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well, looks good but slightly disappointed We've been using this about 2 weeks and have come to learn where the 'buttons' are but we are disappointed that there is no back light on the programming screen. We have to turn on the big kitchen light to see what to push. There is an energy saver option but it only turns off the clock...so why bother! A "one minute" option would be nice too. Our cheaper counter microwave had that!

The fan constantly goes on and won't turn off when I try to turn it off unless I shut off the microwave all together. So I disconnected the fan. Is there any problem in that?

Asked by: Gegar10
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this microwave oven. The surface fan is designed to automatically activate if the temperature under the microwave reaches a certain temperature. This is a safety feature, and as such, the fan should not be disconnected or deactivated until the temperature is regulated.

The microwave oven came with a metal rack and rack mounts yet I see nothing in the owners manual about it or its use

Asked by: nestoavila
We appreciate your interest in this microwave oven. The use of the microwaveable rack is desired when cooking meats. Pages 21-23 of your owner’s manual recommend placing the trays of meat on the rack for best cooking performance.
