Stopped Heating Posted by: from: on Still looks brand new. Stopped heating 15 months in, warranty is 12 months. Six casefiles, 12 downloads and 3 frustrating weeks later still no satisfaction from LG. Funny, oven quit just out of warranty. HAHA on me. Hope you dont have problems.

Good microwave; difficult to read buttons Posted by: from: on The microwave is very good in terms of power, internal size, features, and ease of cleaning. It's not too large on the countertop given it's capacity. The incremental/progressive "quick cook" button is a very nice feature. My only real complaint is minor: the control buttons can be difficult to read from an angle (such as when this is on a countertop and you're looking down). The key issue is the reflective nature of the keypad. The keypad is reasonably intuitive and the layout is one you'll quickly adapt to so this is a transient problem -- pushing by location rather than label quickly becomes easy. Too early to tell about longevity or any repair issues but based on reviews of similar models I don't expect any significant problems.

I love this mic! Posted by: from: Lusby, MD on This is exactly the microwave I wanted. It has all the features I looked for: simple, straight-forward controls and operation WITH plenty of options for more complex cooking, easy-to-clean interior, lighted interior (when door open, and during operation), solid door-latch mechanism, nicely-finished exterior, and relatively strong cooking temperatures for a 1100W mic. This replaces a COMPLETE FAIL - a Panasonic 1200W with similar features; the Panasonic latch failed just after warranty ended, and I found Panasonic customer service to be completely worthless and rude, and they will not support their products. Frustrating, since they have always been at the top for reviews, and I've owned only Panasonic mics my entire life (3 of them), they've gotten steadily worse in dependability with every one I've purchased. Now, it looks like I have a replacement with a company that makes a much better product! I'm thrilled. Go LG.

Died at 3 months Posted by: from: on I've never had a microwave die on me but this p.o.s did. It appears that the circuit board went out. LG's warranty is a joke. They want me to buy another LG AND then they will reimburse me for the original unit. Why would I buy another one? Good thing I kept my 7 year old Sharp....

Poorly designed Posted by: from: on The designations on the control panel are very dark and unable to be read. The door is loud when opened and closed and denotes cheap quality. The interior of the unit is a dark, unappealing green color - not clean and bright. I basically consider the unit to be defective because the control panel cannot be read and consequently would not consider purchasing another LG product.

Excellent microwave! Posted by: from: on A couple of points of interest. The interior light DOES come on whenever the door is open (not just while cooking), best part of that is if you leave the door open (for example to let steam escape), the light automatically goes out after a minute or so. There seemed to be a lot of complaints abt the control panel not being backlit and difficult to read/see; we have never even seen a panel that is backlit (guess we don't get out much), just the time/cooking display lights up and it is very visible. We are not that impressed w/the "sensor" cooking technology, which cooks based on the amt of steam coming from the item being cooked; it never seems to be quite enough time, so we just enter the desired amt of time vs. letting the m'wave figure it out (but this feature was NOT a must have, it was "just there"). While the "I'm done" beeper does continue to beep like every minute or so after it's done, that's kind of a neat feature in case you didn't hear the initial beep (for example, if you're outside flippin' steaks or in the basement folding clothes, you might not hear it, so a 2nd, or even 3rd chime is kind of nice). We weren't quite sure we'd like the stainless exterior (only the front is actually stainless, the top/sides are painted gray/silver), but it goes nicely w/the stainless fridge and yes... they both show fingerprints, but as grandparents, we've grown to appreciate those! Overall, we really like the m'wave and hope it lasts many, many years!

Works well and is quiet Posted by: from: on This microwave is a lot quieter than the previous microwave I had. It cooks everything nicely and quickly as well. It's true that the control panel is a little difficult to read, but we've gotten used to that and we even have it in a fairly dark location. I haven't used all of the automated features, but the straight microwaving works very well. I like that the light goes off if you forget to close the door after removing your food. One interesting caution. I purchased the stainless steel model. I was unaware, and almost didn't see, the thin plastic coating that had to be removed. Make sure you read all the labels that are stuck to the outside - these inform you of things like this that need to be removed. Another caveat about the plastic coating removal - it took about 45 minutes to get it all off. It is very difficult to remove. Once removed, though the microwave is very good.

Buyer Beware - No Refund Policy for LG Posted by: from: on I bought this microwave and 9 weeks later it failed. If it is plugged in, its running but doesn't actually heat anything. When I called LG for a refund or replacement they don't do that. They don't have a refund policy just a rebate policy during their 1 year warranty. This means if the device fails you have to buy a new one, send proof of purchase before they will give you your money back. Lesson learned- if you buy an LG product get the geek squad protection!

Worked good - while it lasted Posted by: from: on We bought this microwave in December of 2013 for our new home but didn't start using it until March of 2014. At the end of January 2015, 11 months after we started using it, the unit quit working. The controls and everything work fine, it acts like it is working but it just won't heat anything. We contacted customer service and we were told, correctly, that it is out of warranty. I can't hold that against them. However, I am very disappointed in the quality of this product. It should not fail after less than a year of use. I will be replacing this microwave but it will not be with an LG. Experience says they produce poor quality products. Beware.
