What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap and terrible Poor quality. Lack of features. Unit is made of poor quality material. I smacked the door of the unit and glass in the door shattered into thousands of pieces. Company refused to replace unit citing "abuse," despite service tech coming to inspect unit and finding no signs of abuse. Our previous microwaves withstood similar "abuse" and never had such a issue. In addition to poor quality material this unit lacks a feature to turn off the turntable and simply run a timer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Best Price I bought this several months ago at Home Depot (close out price) to upgrade to a Micro with a turn table and higher wattage. The unit is higher than my previous one so it's closer to the stove top, and it has only one light bulb to illuminate the stove top (needs 2) and the door has has a sharp edge on the corner! Over all it's OK for the price I paid and I'm living with it! Next Question asks if I would recommend it to a friend? yes/no ... I'd say only if at deep discount NOT FULL PRICE!

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. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.

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.
