Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good looking microwave The microwave works fine. I took off a star because the light over the range is very dim. Also, the fan blows a lot of air but it doesn't seem to draw the cooking vapors from the range below.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shh food heating Definitely much quieter than my last microwave and feels very solid. I've had this installed about 3 months and I am very satisfied with it. My only regret is there are no express timing featurethane. 1=1 minute etc.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy I bought this in 2015. The container gets very very hot in the microwave but the food takes close to 5 mins for a single plate to heat the food inside.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Microwave My whole kitchen is LG. I've had my washer 5 yrs and dyer 3 yrs. I needed new oven (old oven went out on Thanksgiving lol) and my fridge was making weird noises. After some thought, I realized my kitchen appliances were all over 11 yrs old. The microwave didn't score as high because I had a hard time keeping the ventilation filter screens underneath falling on top on my range. So far, I love all of my LG stuff!!

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

Got this microwave and it came with a metal like rack. What is this for? I can't find any information on how to use it.

Asked by: petiteflower70
We appreciate your interest in this microwave oven and its accessories. This microwavable rack is used for meats, and to increase heated circulation. Review the information on page 21, where it recommends for meats to be placed, fat-side down, on a MICROWAVABLE RACK, in a microwavable dish. For additional questions regarding these accessories, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
