Good Value for Stainless Steel Posted by: 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.

Terrible BestBuy Customer Service Posted by: from: on I purchased the microwave on internet as an open box item. It was suppose to be in "EXCELENT" condition. To me that mean it can be used and maybe has a couple small items that are not perfect, but basically a new unit. When the item arrived, it was missing two lag screws which I can pick up from the hardware store and the blower had been reconfigured for wall venting . This required the removal of 2 big sheet metal plates for the air to vent out of the back which are missing. I could expect that from an open box item and with an hours work, I can configure the fans properly and close off the holes left by the missing plates. The big item missing was the rear mounting bracket to hang the unit over the stove. The unit is not usable without this part. LG is sending me the part under warrantee but will take 10 days to get here. BestBuy was unwilling to credit me $25 for all the extra work I had to do because BestBuy misrepresented this item as "EXCELENT". I am now an ex-customer.

Nice looking, quiet! Posted by: 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.

Less than 3 months working... sad Posted by: 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 comes through again! Posted by: 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.

It's Okay. Posted by: from: on We mostly use a microwave for heating frozen dinners, reheating things, popping corn or a timer. This microwave does fine for that and the stainless steel is pretty. What I am disappointed about is the "timer". It will peform timed cooking but not the "timer" you use when needing a signal to go off after so much time to signal the end of time. I asked if it did that when I bought it and was told yes. I would have paid more to get that feature. Sorry I didn't pay closer attention to that detail. Otherwise it is an okay microwave.

Buyer beware Posted by: from: Lebanon, Pa on Bought this to replace my 14 year old sharp. Installed easy looked great went to use the soften feature completely melted a stick of butter what a mess. Energy saver did not work. Tried a few times still didn't work called LG after 55 minutes on the phone they decided something was wrong and would send out service. Tech came out claimed it needed a new board. Received new board 2 weeks later didn't change a thing after service tech's discussion with LG tech they think LG is not programming board correctly, claimed most people don't use these features anyway, they would have to consult with engineers. Called LG customer service to no avail after talking to supervisor claimed they are only responsible for repairing the unit no matter how long it takes. They will not replace told me to call the retailer. Called bestbuy they told me to return it and reselect ( thank you Bestbuy) I would never buy LG again customer service is the worst ever.

Did not last long Posted by: 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.
