LG 1.8 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Microwave with Sensor Cooking
Absolutely love the melt and soften buttons use them all the time for ice cream and cheese. The reheat sensor is a little too powerful or I haven’t gotten used to it, I usually stop it once it show seconds counting down. At that point the food is piping hot. Other than that it looks fantastic above the stove and the light isn’t too soft like others complain. You can always replace the range light with a brighter led one.
Install was less than optimal. Tech said could not install because the bottom of microwave was 1.5 inches too close to stove top. Said it had to be 18” from microwave to stove top. Actually after install to be just one inch too close. Had to have someone else hang it on the wall. So much for the Geek Squad membership that covered a free install. They did haul the old one away for free. We like the Microwave and it seems to work fine.

Rating 5 out of 5 stars with 1 review
Pretty easy to install; just make sure you have an extra set of hands for the mounting. Some other reviews state this microwave is loud; I haven't noticed. The fan works great so does the undermounted light. It popped the best bag of popcorn I have ever had and very easy to wipe clean. I don't have any complaints about this unit, though I don't know if I will ever use the rack that came with it. It matches my new LG double oven perfectly. :)
Replaced an old under the cabinet microwave that had really needed to go. The handle was falling off and the turntable would no longer function. Beyond that, it simply looked old and outdated. I read quite a few reviews before buying. There were concerns about this microwave being loud, but my old one was louder, so I don't have an issue at all there.
I installed this one, with 1 family member, and it looks great.
I am room venting rather than externally venting, and didn't have much of an issue with the installation. The holes in the top are not symmetrical. I accidentally flipped the template they provided, and ended up having to cut a couple extra holes in the cabinet, but nobody else is going to know/see that.
The new microwave fit in perfectly and works well so far. I've only had it installed for about a month, but all is good so far.
I didn't have any frills on the my old microwave, and I don't have any concerns with the functions of this one. I don't really do any 1 button cooking. I set the time and power level for nearly everything I put in the microwave.
The appearance is a drastic upgrade from my old black version with the venting on the top front of the unit. The venting for this one is on top and far enough out from the cabinets above that I don't anticipate any concerns there. I don't use the fan or light on the microwave very frequently, like some who have complained do, and I'm not worried about either.
I got the microwave when they were having pretty good holiday sales, and I've been very satisfied with the purchase so far.
It looks so much better than my old option, both inside and out!
A:AnswerYes, it can be mounted to a cabinet that is not over a cooktop. However, it is 15 5/8" tall so measure your space between your counter and cabinet bottom. The typical cabinet/counter spacing would not leave you any usable counter space unless the cabinet is high like the ones over a range.
A:AnswerHi Gina. The LG LG - 1.8 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Microwave - Stainless-Steel, Model # LMV1831St comes with a Charcoal Filter installed which has to be replaced every 6 to 12 months or more often if necessary...^IFV
