What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It died already. We bought this in Nov of 2015, and it has already fried. We warmed up our meals yesterday eve, it made a loud noise, stunk up the house, and the food was cold. It's unplugged and we'd like a replacement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it so far After having our new microwave installed and plastic removed from the door we noticed some dents and scratches on the door, we didn't want to go through the hassle of taking it back down and returning it so decided just to live with it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Microwave I bought this product in January 14, 2014, along with a refrigerator, oven and dishwasher. I paid for extended warrant and Microwave has been serviced 3 times and has now stopped working again. Seems that LG no longer offer out of warranty service in this area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought this from Lowes on 2/18 but there were none in stock but some arrived 3/2. In the mean time I used the templates from the floor model to prepare for installation. The instructions clearly state that if the cabinet has a recess blocks are needed to fill the gap. What it doesn't say is that you have to lower the back template by the same amount since the unit could not be installed as described to be level back to front.This doubled the job and as well as purchase of extra toggle bolts to replace those lost by removing the support plate to relocate it.

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.

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

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.
