Good Value for Stainless Steel
Posted by: amerikaner2k12 from: Cerritos, CA on
Purchased to match our LG appliances, got it on sale and was the lowest cost stainless steel microwave that matched. Installed easily...My cabinets are older so needed some prework prior to installation. Mounting templates worked great, paper was a bit thin though. Install instructions clear and hardware worked great. Does not come with vent transition...local hardware store should have it.
Good basic feature set. Doesn't have all those extra buttons for modes that are never used.
Micro takes a bit longer to heat than our older counter micro, but that was a higher wattage. Does not have sensor for heating, but I never trusted sensor micros as they tend to over cook. Door latch feels a bit flimsy. We'll see how long it lasts. Fan is a bit loud but still quieter than our old range hood. Also, fan has only 2 speeds (high and low). Wish light was a little brighter. Filters take some care to install with out bending them. The metal rack is kinda useless...when installed you only get about 4-5" of clearance. I can't fit a typical coffee mug.
It works great so far after a month of light use.

I got it delivered to our local best buy to save on shipping. Everything was smooth and I am very satisfied. To take full advantage of the 300 cfm exterior venting you will need 10" DIA piping, otherwise you will be limited by the smaller pipe like me. I have 4" piping, so I am only getting 40 cfm. Great microwave!!!

LG comes through again!
Posted by: PrizNurse from: ElPaso IL on
Best Buy came through. After 4 attempts of locating a microwave at Best Buy, and receiving an email stating the the one purchased was not in the store, this one is great! Very quiet, evenly cooks, heats quick, great light and exhaust fan.

Nice looking, quiet!
Posted by: JulezP from: Michigan on
I installed this microwave yesterday, and it looks great with our other LG stainless appliances in the kitchen. The buttons are easy and responsive. The most fabulous part is how much quieter it is than our 2-year-old GE that was up there previously - during cooking and exhaust operations. There is only 1 light underneath to shine on range top but since it's positioned in the middle, it provides plenty of light. The only complaint I have heard so far is that while we were cooking something on the stove burner directly under the location of the handle on the microwave, the steam that rose up caused the metal handle on the microwave to be hot to the touch - we had to use an oven mitt to grab it. I guess that is an inconvenience we can live with so that the overall appearance of the kitchen is uniform.

Did not last long
Posted by: MObuyer from: on
We purchased this microwave Memorial Day 2013. It completely died January 2015. Really not worth the repair sadly. Cheaper just to replace. We really missed the lack of a timer on this model. Did not buy another LG microwave model. We want something that lasts longer than 1 1/2 years.

Looks good but....
Posted by: BobZ23 from: Carmel Indiana on
Our LG Micro LMV1680ST fit the space and looks great. The main part (Megatron$) went out in 2 years time. A very short life. The part is still under warrantee but the service call with free part and labor + trip charge will cost as much as a new unit... not happy with that...

Doesn't do as advertised
Posted by: Wvian from: Wv on
Good basic microwave but if you are looking for other features don't trust the info provided. They come from the LG site and are not accurate. Turn table doesnt turn off as listed for one.

Bought this microwave exactly 2 years ago and it doesn't work at all and LG won't back it up. They should back up their product. It's only 2 years old and only used it to warm up food only. Total piece of garbage. Will not buy anything this company makes from here on. A tech wants 200 bucks to fix it unbelievable!!

Less than 3 months working... sad
Posted by: Randy from: on
Picked up this Microwave on November 8th and its already failed. Wont heat up anything and with a brand new baby in the house its quite frustrating to not be able to quickly heat milk or foods. Submitted repair request with LG and their local repair contractors earliest appointment is 21 days away (I kid you not... 3 weeks!)

LG Doesn't Stand behind their products
Posted by: davehomeowner from: on
We purchased our LG microwave in 2012 - a switch went out in May of 2014 and we paid the same price as the new Microwave for the repair. Now the same switch has gone out 6 months later (e.g. the Microwave is unusable) and their repair was warrantied for only 3 months - all of our appliances are Stainless LG but we will never buy their products again - buyer beware!
