Slow, weak microwaveLooks beautiful, but takes a long time to cook food. It is simply not very powerful. Also, the knob just broke on the unit, so need to replace. It works, it is just not a very strong unit and takes a long time to cook using it.

Great Features and function well.I have just bought this LG over the range convection microwave about two and a half weeks ago and I'm very pleased with it. It looks very nice nice, functions well once you learn how to operate the unit, it's not hard. The interior of the microwave is very roomy, just what I was looking for. I love it, though the door handle is a bit big but it's not a primary concern. I love this LG convection microwave unit very much.

What height does the 7.1 cu microwave need to be mounted over the range?
Asked by: Sue 53
The upper cabinet that the LG STUDIO 1.7 cu. ft. Over-the-Range Convection Microwave Oven, Model # LSMC3086ST has to be mounted under must have a minimum clearance of 30" from the cooktop/countertop surface before the microwave is mounted. The microwave oven has a height of 16 7/16" so another way to look at it is that the microwave must have a minimum height of 13 9/16" from the bottom of the microwave oven to the cooktop/countertop surface after it is mounted...^IFV

I understand from reviews that the LG display is difficult to see on the microwave model LSMC3086ST. Is that true?
Asked by: BESTBUYGUY
Almost impossible to see at night / low light conditions. Why can’t LG come up with a “static cling”overlay that glows or picks up ambient light?
They just might gain some customers support! It would take a lot of abuse before it wears out.
A clear overlay was on it from the factory. Just makes sense to me.

How loud is the exhaust fan?
Asked by: Thedbart
Regrettably, we do not have a decibel rating as that can depend on the install set up of the unit. ^AC

How do I get it out there f demo mode?
Asked by: Trisystem
Hello, please check to see if you have the option to turn off the feature under the custom set button. If not, you may need to reset the unit by unplugging the unit for 24 hours and plugging it back in. ^AC

I can not vent the exhaust to the outside of the home. Can the exhaust recirculate? My over the range microwaves have had this option in the past but I don't see that it is listed in the specs.
