Rated 1 out of 5 by from Falling apart after 2 years I bought this microwave a little over 2 years ago. The door handle has become completely detached from the front door, breaking the microwave door in a way where the whole door will need to be replaced. Prior to the door falling apart, the keypad panel completely fell off.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs better lighting over stove! I like the looks of this new (for me) microwave. Haven't had it long enough to evaluate fully but I'm sure annoyed by the poor lighting over my stove. My advice to others - buy a microwave oven with at least two bulbs underneath! Or wait until manufacturers start installing good LED lighting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Product for the Money This is the second LG microwave I purchased. It is the exact one that I had previously purchased which didn't last more than 3 years which was disappointing. I do like it but wish that it had a timer feature on it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LG microwave I brought this home and it has worked very well. The only blemish was that the heat sensor had to be replaced but LG took care of the cost with the warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! My husband wanted the microwave to match our range and we are so please with this product. It has many features on the microwave with the choices written within the door, so you know how to use the options. It's wonderful! Also, we like how the microwave beeps at you when you left something in it to tell you it has finished heating up the coffee, etc. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product, Good Price We had to have a new Over-the-Range microwave. The wife said, "LG!" What more do I need to say?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well; would like a brighter light Easy to install if you're reasonably handy. Plenty large for our purposes. The light underneath is brightness of a night light and we would prefer brighter. Otherwise it's fine.

Dumb question...but one of the kids meant to put in the timer on this microwave and accidentally put the microwave on High for 2:00. The microwave caught fire, the top of it where the plastic and metal piece are. Is that normal for a microwave?

Asked by: Jfg71
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this microwave oven. It is never recommended to allow a microwave oven to run while empty. Doing so can cause the interior to start producing some electrical arcing, which can lead to melting or a fire. While it is not intended to run in this fashion, doing so can certainly cause the results which have been noted.

Clock color

We just purchased a new LG microwave (LMV1683ST 2015) and the clock/display is green. We also purchased an LG stove/range that has a bluish/lavender color clock. Our 5 year old LG Fridge also have the bluish/lavender display. Why is the microwave display green? It's not consistent with the other products. Why? Is there a way to change the green display to match with the others?
Asked by: REM1834
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with the display on this product. Regrettably, there is no alternate display window available for this microwave oven.

Installation instructions for over the range microwave.

I just purchased an LG over the range microwave at an outlet store, it was a display model, but it didn't come with the template for installing it. Is there anyway I can get it through your company? The model number is LMV 1683SB.

Why does the microwave fan exhaust at two spots but only one charcoal filter? Also, where do you buy the charcoal filters?
Asked by: jabenedetti
We appreciate your interest in this microwave oven. The unit is designed with 2 grease filters as generally there is a light on the bottom of a microwave oven, positioned between the 2 filters, as well as these filters being positioned in such a manner as to be located specifically over the standard burner locations of the oven. Both locations combine into one vent duct to pass through the 1 charcoal filter, in the event that the vent fan is left to vent out the front of the unit. If the fan was turned UP, or to the BACK during installation, then the charcoal filter is irrelevant. Accessories can be obtained through our parts distributor, MCM Electronics. Their contact number, for placing orders, is 800-824-9491. You can also use their website, at The part number for this filter is 5230W1A011C.

noise while running

This microwave is so noisy that we can't watch TV while it is running. Is there a suggestion of how to make it quiet or should I just sell it and get a new one. Where can I found the noise levels when I read the specifics of each model.
Asked by: Catfla
We found the metal filter inside the unit was improperly installed. This caused it to make a terrible sound whenever it was on. Fortunately, this machine is complete garbage and has required frequent repairs, so we had the first repair person take care of the misaligned filter. The mircowave now runs quietly when its actually in working order (about 70% of the time since we bought it).

door clearance on left side

there is a wall on the left side of the microwave opening - will the door be able to open (think it is called zero clearance...)
Asked by: kena
It appears that there is an extension of 3/4 inch beyond the edge of the unit, when the door is open perpendicular.

Does the LMV1683SW Vent from the front?

The microwave will be above the range, under some cabinets. It is on an interior wall. There is no venting system. How does this unit vent? From the front? Where does it blow to? Out into the kitchen or behind?
Asked by: cstephenspi
It blows from the top of the unit, into the room.
