      Answer

      Hello Anna, yes, this model is meant to be mounted underneath a cabinet. If you have a cooktop/range underneath please make sure that there are at least 30" between cooktop and cabinet. 30" min. cabinet opening width & 30" min. clearance from bottom of cabinet to cooking surface or countertop before installation. ...and in case you are wondering, it does come with its own wall mounting kit. We appreciate your feedback, please give us a “thumbs up” if this answer is helpful to you; and please let us know if we can assist you with anything else. Have a lovely week!

        Yes, it will fit in a regular sized opening. I replaced an old "wpool" model in my under cabinet mount space. Take your time, and follow directions. It will work perfectly...

          Answer

          The install cost for a standard install is $150.00, more if they run into stuff. I am not sure if that includes removing the old one. I removed mine and installed the new one. It takes two people who are of normal strength.

            The required minimum installation spacing between the bottom of the LG LG - 1.6 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Microwave - Stainless Steel, Model # LMV1683ST and the Counter top or Cooktop surface is actually given as the minimum spacing between the Cooktop or Counter top surface and the bottom of the upper cabinet that the microwave is to be installed under before installation and that is a minimum of 30". The microwave has a height of 16 7/16" so the minimum distance between the bottom of the microwave and the Cooktop surface after installation should be 13 9/16"...^IFV

              I don't think there is a timer. At first I couldn't believe it, but, pretty sure there is none.
