What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG microwave Bought this 2 weeks ago. I really like placement and size of the control buttons and I like the light under the microwave. Of course it helps that it works well

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reheat feature The reheat feature is fantastic. We had an Express feature on our older model, really liked that.....was not offered on the LG model. Overall it had been a joy to use. I installed this unit myself, had a few mishaps in the installation, but finally achieved my goal. Works great. Very good product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy I bought my microwave a month ago, I love the look and the large interior, but, I hear a cracking noise before it starts and when it ends. Is that how it should be?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just ok Button are not as easy touch as I would like. Last Microwave oven had one touch buttons: 30 sec, 1,2, 3, 4 minutes. Looks nice. Cleans easily. Matches oven.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Clock/ timer cannot be seen from the side Had the 1813 4 years and it laid an egg. This is the only one that fit in the 1813 space. It is very noisy when in use. Makes terrific grinding noise. It is only 1000 watt so does not perform as well as old one. The light (1813 had 2) is so dim that you need to turn off room light to see what's cooking. The cook area is considerably smaller so things we used to cook in will no longer fit. It's bad!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good features I find the button panel hard to press. You really have to push the buttons hard to work

we purchased one of these and it did not come with the turntable, rack, or any mounting hardware. is this normal?

Asked by: lm0410
Hello, it is not normal. Typically, when items are missing, it is due to the unit being an open box/as-is purchase. If the unit was bought as an open box/as-is unit, you can purchase the missing items from Encompass. ^AC https://encompass.com/

My unit came with the ‘blower plate’ tabs removed, apparently.  (You can see gray housing of the fan unit inside, but not the fins.)  I want to use the default back into the room config.  Did I get some re-packaged unit somehow?

Asked by: GaryW76
HI, if the back blower plates have been removed, it will not be possible to room vent. You will need to check with the store as to whether or not you were sold an open box/previously owned unit. ^AC

Over-the-Range Microwave Oven, Model # LMV1831BD has a standard plug (Nema Configuration 5-15p - two parallel blades over a 'D' shaped grounding pin) that must be plugged into a dedicated 120V/60Hz household outlet.

My black stainless microwave came with scratches, how can this be fixed? 

Asked by: cherrywaffles
We hate to hear that the unit came with scratches. Unfortunately, the LG manufacturer's warranty does not cover cosmetic damage to the unit. It would be suggested to contact the retailer from where it was purchased for further assistance.

Can this microwave be vented outside?

Asked by: Woog23
The LG 1.8 cu.ft. Over-the-Range Microwave Oven, Model # LMV1831SB, like most, if not all other LG Over-the-Range Microwave ovens can be vented inn one of three ways, Roof-Venting, Wall-Venting or Room-Venting. It ships with the blower assembled for room-venting and if you will need to adjust it for roof-venting or wall-venting. An installation manual is provided with the unit that instructs you on how to adjust the blower and there are templates that you can use for its installation...^IFV
