What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great microwave. My tenant did not complain about the microwave. They were very happy with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed Just purchased an LG kitchen suite, love the fridge, stove and dishwasher but am disappointed with the minimal features of this microwave. Did not pay close enough attention...everything else has LED blue lighting but microwave is green, no express cook buttons, and no timer. These seem like pretty basic features?!?!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well, looks good but slightly disappointed We've been using this about 2 weeks and have come to learn where the 'buttons' are but we are disappointed that there is no back light on the programming screen. We have to turn on the big kitchen light to see what to push. There is an energy saver option but it only turns off the why bother! A "one minute" option would be nice too. Our cheaper counter microwave had that!

The fan constantly goes on and won't turn off when I try to turn it off unless I shut off the microwave all together. So I disconnected the fan. Is there any problem in that?

Asked by: Gegar10
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this microwave oven. The surface fan is designed to automatically activate if the temperature under the microwave reaches a certain temperature. This is a safety feature, and as such, the fan should not be disconnected or deactivated until the temperature is regulated.

The clock keeps turning off. Is there a way to keep the clock on? I see no point of having a clock if it will keep on turning off.

The microwave oven came with a metal rack and rack mounts yet I see nothing in the owners manual about it or its use

Asked by: nestoavila
We appreciate your interest in this microwave oven. The use of the microwaveable rack is desired when cooking meats. Pages 21-23 of your owner’s manual recommend placing the trays of meat on the rack for best cooking performance.

How do I warm stale bread in microwave 

Asked by: AllanD
Press the AUTO REHEAT button. Press the #4 to select the ROLL/MUFFIN category. Place the bread on a paper towel. Do not cover it. You may also consider adding a small, microwave safe container of water. Additional information on this process can be located on page 19 of the owner’s manual.
