Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good value microwave We bought this one to replace a failed microwave and match the LG french door fridge we love. Works great and great price. Two disappointments: the vent fan is terribly loud and this oven does not have a timer, which we loved on the old one. But we'd buy it again. We are converting most of our alliances to LG.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features I bought this a month ago and glad I did. Was easy to install. It mounted right on to the previous bracket which was not an LG. Used daily and has given fantastic results. We use this microwave more than our previous one because of it's features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! Had a other popular brand that died after 4 years. This microwave works better and I paid less for it. LG is so trusted in this house that I'm thinking of buying all of my appliances from them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for basic cooking and reheating Was looking for a simple, reliable, low-priced replacement for my second more expensive model to die after just a handful of years. So far very happy with this one aside from the smallish turntable. Otherwise it has and does exactly what I need.

I checked the spec for the fan location on your website but nothing mentioned here. In Lowe's it says (front) and in Homedepot it says (back)  Please let me know

Asked by: Darkeyes
The exhaust fan for the LG 1.6 cu. ft. Non-Sensor Over the Range Microwave Oven, Model # LMV1683ST is in the vent hood and exhaust through the vent grille in the front of the unit. Internally, it is located in towards the back of the unit...^IFV

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.
