What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect fit for my home So far it is meeting up to my expectations. The only thing I was disappointed with is the small size and amount of ice cubes but not a really big deal.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK microwave oven I've had this a couple of years. Works ok but is rather noisy. It also won't stay put. We have a rubber pad under it but it still moves - mostly when I close the door. You really have to push it hard to close and when you press the Start button.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very good product, but not live long. I bought this microwave in May 2010. I had been using it regularly about half hour or less per day. It just stopped working today, 10/13/2015, after 5 and half years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Microwave is great My new microwave cooks evenly - no more need to keep turning the dishes in the oven by hand.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Steam between glass in door Steam builds up between glass panels. CS said it was normal because food was cold. It doesn't happen when warming up room temp food. I never had this happen with other microwaves. I'm going back to previous brand and donating this one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Regrets... We bought this model about 6 months ago to replace the one we had. We shopped around & there was not much out there. We bought this one due to space constraints and availability. It was fine at first because it worked. But here we are 6 months later with a new microwave because we were so unhappy with the LG. Everything, except for popcorn, takes twice as long to cook or reheat. It has a lot of nice features and the price (on sale) was good, but overall we regret making the purchase.

Trim kit for LMA1180ST

Would the LG trim kit work with this microwave?
Asked by: Walkertown
I apologize, but no; the trim kit was designed for use with the LSRM2010ST. It has not been intended for use with the LMA1180ST model.

Microwave stop working

My microwave does not turn on and at the same time trips the breaker. what can that be?
Asked by: tatz
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this microwave oven. The tripping of the circuit breaker could be caused by a problem with the electrical portion of the microwave, or it could be caused by a weak circuit breaker. It is recommended to have the outlet and breaker checked. If this does not resolve the matter, then 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 http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.

I am looking for the largest, most powerful microwave that is 17" deep or less.

I am installing it in an upper wall cabinet and that is my maximum depth. The width and heigth are not major concerns.
