What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost a Five Would have given a 5 star review, but we’ve had one issue with fruits and vegetables freezing in the refrigerator stored adjacent to the ice maker that we haven’t been able to resolve. Other then that it’s a nice refrigerator. Hopefully it will last many many more years. Time will tell.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke After 11Days I purchased new LG microwave November 4, 2018 and installed November 9, 2018. Worked great until November 19, 2018. Since it was past 48 hours, Home Depot, would not take back. I called warrenty service and was referred to A&E Factory Service. This company provides great customer service. Service person arrived Nov. 21, 2018 and accessed the problem. Heating unit not working. He ordered a part to be delived to my home, and set another date for install. . I am upset the previous microwave I had (not mention name) lasted 22 years before breaking.

Can this microwave oven be vented to the outside ?

Asked by: Lips
The LG 1.8 cu. ft. Over the Range Microwave in Black Stainless Steel, Model # LMV1831BD does not have an option for Roof-Venting or Wall-Venting so you can vent it to the outside. ^CP

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

How does the stove plug in?

Asked by: Ghtt
The LG Black Stainless Steel Series 1.8 cu.ft. 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. Because this appliance fits under the cabinet, it has a short power-supply cord...^IFV

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.

I'm getting on order lmv1831st and going to vent to attic does it come with sleeve to vent into wall and go up ? If it does what size pipe connects to it to run up wall?

Asked by: DAVEHAUS
Hi DAVEHAUS. Thank you for ordering the LG 1.8 cu.ft. Over-the-Range Microwave Oven, Model # LMV1831ST can be vented on one of three ways; Roof-Venting, Wall-Venting or Room-Venting. Ductwork, duct transitions and elbows are not supplied with the microwave oven. Installation instructions that specify what type of adapter and extension are to be used depending on your existing duct and on the total length of the duct system...^IFV
