Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Microwave With Amazing Ventilation! We decided to replace our 17 year old over-the-range microwave with a new one. We also had an HVAC company install the microwave so that it would vent outside instead of into our home through a filter. This microwave performs excellently. It heats food faster and more evenly than our old microwave and has more features. The 400cmf blower can vent the kitchen amazingly well and it has 4 speed settings. It is a quieter vent than our old microwave. I would highly recommend this microwave, especially if you want a microwave with amazing ventilation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not able to use This is the 2nd of the 4 LG appliances that we have had to have serviced in the 9 months we have had them. Due to the vent or blower on the microwave itself going out (it stopped making any kind of a fan or blowing sound when it was running) we are now without a dishwasher for probably up to two weeks. It has worked okay up to this point, although melting butter in particular is impossible to do without it splattering all over the place. I have resorted to doing this on the stove. The main issue is the service after such a short time. The parts are apparently not great or they would not have to be serviced after a few months of very light use. Our previous appliances lasted us for 14 years with little or no service at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LGV2031ST Microwave I like the easy to understand front panel, modern design, and the moving inside tray. The inside was more spacious than some of the others that I was considering. I have been using it for few months now, and the quality is excellent for the price paid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice MW Having renovated several houses and flipped a few more, I've purchased many a MW. This one is nice. It has most of the higher quality features. It doesn't have a "Potato" button but has all the other usual ones' i.e.' popcorn, 30 second add-on, etc. Its lights should be brighter because the clock and settings are harder to read in a bright kitchen.

Hello! I already own the LMV2031ST microwave and plan on remodeling my kitchen. I want to move the microwave from OTR to a tall cabinet. If I put legs on the LMV2031ST microwave, could I place it in a cabinet and then trim it out to look built in?

Asked by: Jubeldesigns
I am sorry, but we would not recommend you attempt to use this unit as a none OTR microwave for safety reasons. ^AC

Attn LGJoel I’m have a wall at the left side of the planned 30” opening for micro. Will the door open properly with the microwave left side against a wall. If not, what’s the min. clearance on the left side for correct door function????

Asked by: Flounder1265
Hi Flounder1265. Neither the specifications nor the owner's manual for this LG 2.0 cu.ft. Over-the-Range Microwave Oven with EasyClean®, Model # LMV2031ST give a clearance spacing requirement for it for when it is up against a wall. Keep in mind that it is designed to be installed between cabinets that have a minimum width of 30", but upper kitchen cabinets have a standard depth of 12" and some can be up to 14" deep, and since the unit has a depth of 15 7/8", the door will be clear of the cabinets and they would not hinder the door from opening. What you have not made clear in your description of the wall that is to the left side of the opening, is how close it will be to the microwave oven. Will this wall be flush against the microwave or is there any clearance? When the door is fully opened, it will slightly overlap the cabinet on the microwave, but you also have the handle to contend with. If the wall is flush against the microwave's cabinet, you will not be able to open the door. Even though we do not have measurements for how much that door overlaps the cabinet, it is probably safe to say you will need at least a 1/2" clearance, but then the door handle will also be an obstacle. Please contact our Support Center at (800) 243-0000. If they have access to the mechanical drawings for this unit, they will be able to assist you with your inquiry, but it would help if you could give them some measurements about how close to the wall is to your planned 30" opening...^IFV

Can this unit be mounted with a wall/deep cabinet directly to the left of it, hinge side? I have a 30” opening for the micro currently. If not, what’s the required clearance on the hinge side from the wall?

Asked by: Flounder1265
Hi Flounder1265. regrettably, we are not familiar with what the dimensions are for a "wall/deep cabinet", however, if it will help, This LG 2.0 cu.ft. Over-the-Range Microwave Oven with EasyClean®, Model # LMV2031ST is designed to be installed between standard upper kitchen cabinets that have a minimum width of 30" between the cabinets. The microwave oven has a width of 29 15/16" and has a depth of 15 7/8". Standard Upper Kitchen cabinets typically have a depth of 12 inches...^IFV

Can this unit be used over a gas range does it require an outside venting or can it recurlate.

Asked by: Gene 14
This unit would not need an external vent to be connected. There would be no reason as to why it could not be installed over a gas range. We do recommend reviewing the installation and clearance requirements prior to having the product installed to ensure the unit is within the clearance requirement specification. This information may be found under the support tab. A copy of the owner's manual is available for downloading.

I just bought and installed this microwave today to replace an older Model I had. When I put a time in and press start the light comes on inside and it counts down but never cooks the food? What am I doing wrong? Happen even when I press the 30 sec button

Asked by: HollyS
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this microwave oven. If the unit is not heating, unplug and reconnect the device. If this doesn't correct the issue, then it would seem that the unit may require service. 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

I just purchased this microwave but I don't want to use the venting feature. Can I disable the auto vent so it won't ever come on?

Asked by: jman2002
We appreciate your interest in the microwave. The "Vent On/Off" can be used to cycle the ventilation on or off as desired, but If the microwave is cooking, the vent fan turns on automatically if the sensors detect too much heat from the cooktop. This is designed to prevent microwave component damage and cannot be deactivated.

I've had this microwave just one year. Today I touched the energy saver button and now no matter what I do I have no display. 

Asked by: Heather L
After pressing the Energy Saving button the display would be turned off. Pressing the button again should reactivate the display and turn off Energy Saving. If this is not the case, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for assistance with this matter.
