What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Micro At first was overwhelmed with the options already set up in the program for this micro, but after just a couple of weeks it is easy to use. The style is so nice and is the final piece to my complete LG kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my wife loves this microwave I am very happy that I purchased this particular microwave. It looks great, has all the features I was looking for and my wife is happy with this model. She says she really likes the one touch reheat preset function. For example, when she reheats pancakes she says they are not soggy or hard. I found my microwave at best buy for a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick cooking! Love this microwave. Love how quickly food cooks, the power save button, and all of the features. Downside no express cook button, but you don't have to press time start then numbers then start. Just punch in the numbers and press start. Easy to use and clean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my microwave I purchased this lg to replace a 15 year old sharp over the range. This microwave is quiet, the stainless steel blends well with my black top range. The smart buttons are very handy and takes the guess work out of tasks, like softening butter as opposed to melting butter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not at all worth the money The door has a tin sound when opening and closing. There is a static crackling sound when you press the "start" key. The same noise is heard when you hear the stop beep. Sounds like an electricity problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and reliable to use Bought this at Best Buy on a promotional deal, price and size was good for your kitchen. The installation was pretty straightforward, but definitely needs two person to lift into place. The hardware and the supporting diagrams were helpful. We have been using every day about 5 months and has been working great! Only thing we had to change was the light bulb, the recommended 30w not available in store.

Can this microwave be placed into a cupboard?

I am remodeling my kitchen. I want to move the microwave either into a wall above a double wall oven (see pic), or into a center island (see second pic). Are either possible? I obviously wouldn't be using the fan option any longer, but is there any danger with installing them in these two locations without venting?
Asked by: tdtchr

Simpliest way to heat a cup of coffee?

Installed our new LMV1683 a couple days ago and are having trouble following instructions on how to use it for the simple things like heating a cup of coffee. Either I am getting old and can't follow directions or your owner's manual is hard to follow. Most of the things I will never use but to quickly heat a cup of coffee is something I will use a number of times each day. HELP! Thank you. TomE
Asked by: TomEnglish
The simplest method for reheating liquids would likely be the TEA category for the SENSOR REHEAT function. It is recommended to place the cup in the microwave, then press the REHEAT button, then the #6, and then the START/ENTER button. Stir the liquid when the unit beeps and displays END. This information can be found on page 15 of your owner’s manual.

The bottom of our cabinet is 30 and 3/4 inches from cooktop. Will this microwave install safely?

Asked by: BIGSEES
This is a question for your kitchen installer. The typical cabinets are set at around 18 inches above the counter, so your microwave should also be about this height above the stove top.
