QuietPower™ Ventilation System
With an Over-the-Range Microwave Oven, strong ventilation is key. That’s why LG has created the QuietPower™ vent, which does the job quietly, without interrupting your life.
Eliminate the guesswork in cooking. Humidity-sensing technology determines when food is cooked and automatically turns off the microwave to help prevent the over- or under-cooking of meals.
Energy Savings Key
Saves energy by turning off the display when not in use. The display will turn off when the unit is not active for 5 minutes. When this feature is in use the power consumption drops to below 0.1W.
Automatically defrosts for a specified amount of time.
Makes it easy to cook and warm a variety of foods – from a cup of coffee to chicken nuggets.
LG microwaves live up to stylish design with hidden vents, so that it looks as smooth as it works. The ventilation can be installed either updraft or front, whichever meets your needs for the perfect kitchen.
Enables you to lock the keypad to prevent the oven from being accidentally started.
2.2 Cu. Ft. ExtendaVent 2.0 Over-the-Range Microwave with Sensor Cooking
Measure the depth & height of your cabinets first. Only downside for us was it’s so deep that the fan can’t come all the way down because of the proximity to the elevated controls on the back of the stove
The microwave itself is awesome. Working great! However, (I'm not sure who's fault it is? LG transfer, Best Buy Warehouse, or delivery guys. The box it arrives in has no damage, so probably not the delivery guys). I received the 1st microwave with the Face mashed in (not smashed, just mashed). I returned it and reordered. The 2nd one arrive. The Back of that one was bent and mashed also. And it had a fairly large dent an upper side in the crease from the top to the side. Having no microwave for another 7 - 10 days was not an option, so... I was able to hide the dent (mostly) and able to reinforce the rear so it would hang on the mounting bracket without fear of it to come crashing down.
The extended tray is not heat treated and it cracks. Spent 3 months talking with LG and their service providers until my warranty expired. LG warranty doesn’t cover what is called “ cosmetic repair” even though they claim they pay for part and labor. Their service centers or companies that provide service on LG’s behalf , refuse to provide service since they won’t be paid by LG down the road. DO NOT BUY LG PRODUCTS. I would have given it no star if I could !
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great microwave. It is also easy to clean/ keep clean- doesn't show finger prints like regular stainless steel.
A:AnswerI have used microwaves with exterior venting, and no venting.
When we didn't vent our microwaves the moisture that comes from the interior is vented out into your kitchen. Depending on the make and manufacturer if may vent out the top,bottom etc. But that moisture accumulates in your kitchen and in our case the exhausted moisture vented downward and since heat rises,the underneath surfaces of my upper cabinets was destroyed,as well as the finish of my upper cabinets above the microwave.
This happened with 3 different micro. On the 3rd micro we saw it was going to do the same bad venting into my kitchen, which by the way raises the humidity in your kitchen making it like a sweat box while cooking,it can also cause food smells to stay in your home,staining cabinets and paint and wallpaper., especially if you are into frying foods. When we vented our last two microwaves we no longer had all the nasty problems I noted here. Venting outside is much better, and I will never go with the ventless installation, again. Also going ventless shortened the life of the over the stove mounted microwaves significantly.
I don't care if you spend $100 or $1000, ..even a $100 is a lot of money to waste, when you have to work so hard to earn it.
Hope my honest answer saves some of you trouble and expense.
A:AnswerNo you won't feel the from below at all. The vent area is where the fan pulls the air into along with the fumes and the through filters and the air is blown back into the air at the front top of the microwave.
A:AnswerYes. I have this microwave and I have vented to outside. Works pretty well - it has enough air flow to flip the check valve on the vent cover outside. Note: the fan is loud though. Loud in the kitchen and probably not because I am venting outside (that probably quiets it a bit). Also there is no way to wipe of the glass on inside of door due to mesh screen. Other brands use a front pane of glass and a back pane of glass and the mesh screen is in between so you can wipe of the glass.
A:AnswerHello Sanchezchu, This model does not have an Auto Vent Fan, but when the LG 2.2 cu. ft. Over-the-Range Microwave Oven with EasyClean®, Model # LMHM2237ST is cooking, the vent fan turns on automatically if the sensors detect too much heat from the cooktop to prevent microwave component damage...^IFV
A:AnswerYes. As stated in the description of the microwave , the unit can be vented. A 10 minute fan rotation is required and is easy to do. Mounting the unit may be difficult since it is recommended not to support the microwave from the bottom due to potential damage to the slide out intake at the bottom. Overall, a nice microwave and exhaust.
