Recent purchaser of LMV1831. The light bulb especially over the stove is TOO DIM. I am disappointed that I cannot find a replacement other than LG. I am interested in more lumens and perhaps a soft or bright white bulb. Can you help?

Asked by: Cajun MiMi
You can replace the bulb with a 30 watt appliance bulb. If you are in need of any assistance, have additional questions, or would just like to see our helpful tips, check us out on Twitter @LGUSSupport Facebook or you can give us a call at 800-243-0000. ^CP

I recently purchased this microwave and noticed that the window inside the microwave door has a bubble on it. when I run my finger down the bubble it disappears and then comes right back. What is wrong with it.

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

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

I have just received the mod# lmv 1031 . The light is not very bright. Can the bulb be replaced with a brighter bulb?

Asked by: B L K
We are sorry, but it can not. It does have a maximum wattage. ^AC
