What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Appliance I have purchased this same Microwave before and it finally went out, after 5 years. I loved it so well I went back to Home Depot and bought the same one again, no complaints, very well satisfied with the performance and how it fits over the stove. Please keep making this model.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Loud noise! I bought this product in December but had it installed as a gift for my mom in January and it makes a weird loud noise when turned on. It is very appealing to the eye and looks great in the kitchen but I didn't pay for looks. I would like the noise to go away. When my mom host guess at her home she is constantly praying that she doesn't have to turn the microwave on because of the loud noise it makes.

We just bought this microwave and when I set it at power level zero to use as a timer, it lights up inside and the turntable spins. Is it supposed to do this? Thank you. 

Asked by: Jerseychick
We appreciate your interest in this microwave oven. The description given is normal operations. The microwave should be operating as it would for a normal cook cycle, while simply not providing heat.

The microwave automatic fan doesn't turn on automatically when the temperature of the stove gets really hot and I had to replace the door and handle twice already cause the plastic cover around the door keeps breaking. What might be the problem?

I purchased this microwave last November and now the handle is broken. How do I get a new handle.

Asked by: Macandis
The installation of the door handle requires disassembling the door of the microwave oven. While this, in itself, may not be particularly difficult, ensuring proper re-assembly, and proper sealing to contain the heating waves/microwaves should not be attempted except by a qualified technician. Parts and accessories can be obtained through our parts distributor, MCM Electronics. Their contact number, for placing orders and pricing information, is 800-824-9491. You can also use their website, at http://www.mcmelectronics.com/content/en-US/forms/lg_parts. For components such as interior parts, it is highly recommended to enlist the assistance of a qualified service technician for purchase and installation.

I have this Microwave since 2013 and it is not working properly. So i am planning to replace it with the same model. Will the existing mounting bracket fit for this or Do I need to change the bracket as well?

Asked by: Spaudel
We appreciate your interest in this microwave oven. If the model numbers are the same, then all the specifications should be equivalent, including that of the mounting bracket.

Just purchased the LMV1683ST and had it installed. The vent is on continuously when in use. I can't turn it off. Is this ok?

Asked by: Bowl
The control panel on the LG 1.6 cu. ft. Non-Sensor Over the Range Microwave Oven, Model # LMV1683ST has a VENT HI/LOW/OFF touch pad that you can use to turn the fan off when desired. However, keep in mind that when the temperature from your range or cooktop below the oven gets too hot, the exhaust fan in the vent hood on the microwave will automatically turn on at a HIGH setting to protect the oven. It may stay on for up to an hour to cool the oven and when that occurs, the VENT pad will not turn the fan off. You cannot turn the exhaust fan off during microwave cooking either...^IFV

Asked by: Gern
We appreciate your interest in this microwave oven. This model is designed to have all 3 options available. It will vent forward, by default. The fan can be changed if you wish.
