What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One feature missing! We purchased our LG microwave a week ago, we love the look and capacity. The problem in the store is that you can't turn on the microwave, so we had no idea that the control panel didn't light up. In fact it never occurred to us that there wasn't some kind of backlight behind the control panel. We got it installed before we realize this, to see the controls you have to stand at a certain angle to be able to read them, this is very inconvenient. Hopefully this is addressed by LG in the future and the problem corrected. It's definitely a feature I will pay attention to in the future! That's the only disappointing issue with this microwave. Other than that it's a great Style.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from LOUD Works fine but the exhaust blower is loud with a whine noise. Loud hollow sound when opening and shutting door. Wish you could run in the store before purchasing. Beverage button would be nice as well as a kitchen timer. Love the grey interior. Would not recommend, too noisy when running. Would suggest you purchase something else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Installation I was pleasantly surprised and appreciated certain aspects of the ovens installation. My GE died over Thanksgiving. (only lasted 5 years and the wife had major issues with it)(SUN luckily) 1. I appreciated that it was what I believe the current standard. The mounting bracket and top secure holes. After measuring 15 times, I came to the conclusion that I did not need to change my wall bracket or drill additional hole in my cabinets. 2. Weight was good and well proportioned. Easy two man install for middle age men. 3. The wife likes the look. I am sure since it is on sale at a very good price the whole finger print thing may be a minor inconvenience down the road. I would recommend this product "currently". I talked with the guy @ Home Depot for about 15 minutes on a different model (different brand). Could not get it until 1 DEC. My house uses a microwave about 4-10 times a day. (2 teenage girls) I was leaving HD to go to their competitor around the corner and a women was having this model loaded into her car. Checked the size walked back in and walked to the main aisle and found the stack of them. The features are what we need. (cooking basic stuff and reheating) For the price I don't think you can beat it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from disappointed I did buy this microwave as a replacement for a 27 year unit and I did buy it for the low price. it looks great. But the turn table is very noisy, my brother bought the same one at the same time and his is not noisy like ours. my other disappointment was when i installed the instruction said it was ready for roof venting as that was the way my old one was. But after I got it installed I found that it was in re circulation mode. Thus I had to take it back down, change the fan and reinstall it. I probably should have given it only one or two stars.

Can this model also sit on a countertop instead of hanging above the range?

Asked by: Jredman
The LG 1.7 cu.ft. Over-the-Range Microwave Oven, Model # LMV1762ST is designed to be installed under your upper kitchen cabinets so it can extract the odors and airborne grease off your cooktop and the area under the hood has to be properly ventilated at all times. It has grease filters under the microwave and a Cooktop/Countertop light, so it should not be placed on a Countertop...^IFV

is it okay for the microwave to be empty when using the timer?

Asked by: Suzi49
The owners manual (pg. 14) states that once the cook time is entered, "you can also use the Power Level pad as a second Kitchen Timer by entering '0' for the Cook Power." The oven will then count down the cooking time you set without cooking. I did try this, and the "timer" function seemed to work just fine; however, the oven does actually turn on once you press the "Start" setting, but it doesn't heat up. So the initial question from Suzi49 remains unanswered. Perhaps LGJoel could help us out?
