My wife and I looked long and hard for a good looking stainless steel microwave to match our new kitchen. I also wanted a technically well made unit (I am an engineer) and was pretty fussy about a brand and model. We also wanted an over-the-range unit which would actually extract and the extendible extractor on this unit did not disappoint. We initially had a small problem with the unit (interior light) and the help I received from LG went way beyond what one might expect from a manufacturer. I'd recommend this unit (and brand) to anyone who asked me.

I had a GE microwave for 5 years and then I boughtthe LG. It was not a good microwave. The controlpanel is on the door and mine went out after 23 months. I called ABT and they were very nicebut said it is not under warranty and suggested Icall LG. I called LG and they said sorry-can't help. I think a microwave should last nore that 2 years. I am going back to a GE. Never liked this microwave.

Love the Extenda Vent
from Tampa Bay, FL
Comments about LG LMHM2017SB Black Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:
After seeing the 2.2 Extenda Vent which is only available in Stainless and Black Stainless, I searched for a leftover new Black 2.0 Extenda Vent that would match my black stove. Fortunately I found one. I got it specifically for the Extenda Vent - and so far I am pleased with it puling the steam and vapors from food cooking on the front burners. The left side doesn't pull the vapors quite as well as the right, however I believe that is do to the placement of the fan. The other item I don't care for is the over-sized turn table - it seems to be a bit too big and doesn't spin smoothly or quietly - but it does spin. My husband said it was easy to install (about 20 minutes.) I have one recommendation - LG should offer the Extenda Vent 2.2 in Black and White. Limiting it to stainless and black stainless prevents many consumers from taking advantage of this technology.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Didn't last very long
By Stay away
from New Jersey
Unit stopped working within 33 months of purchase. Considering I have 6 LG products in my house I thought I might get some special treatment from LG, NO such luck. Told me to call for service. While the magnetron is still under warranty, the cost of labor and the assosicated parts will cost more then a new unit. Looking for a new unit but NOT LG
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Naylor, GA
It quit working after 1 year. Too expensive to replace that soon.
Almost great features.
from SF BayArea
Really a nice microwave. Some nice features but the one miss is a single button push for cooking at 1 to 6 minutes. You can have quick start but it is a two button operation. The roll out vent hood is a great touch to eliminate steaming up front of unit.
Good over all design, but
from Medford, OR, United States
The extended hood feature is great. The over all construction is poor. The plastic parts break easily, it is hard to clean and the controls on the door are not good because they become inactive sometimes and you have to slam the door to get them to work. The microwave part is great, just some of the design and overall construction are lacking.
Dead after 3 Years and 2 Months
from Knoxville, TN, USA
Purchased the LMHM2017 in Nov. 2011 and absolutely loved this microwave. Used 90% of the cook settings. Popcorn setting was on the money. The Extend-A-Vent was very useful when foods were burned on the underlying gas range to quickly dissipate smoke. However, the microwave did not last for a reasonable amount of time. It died in January 2015 so I'm out hunting a replacement. If LG had not reduced the height and location of the viewing window, I would consider another LG to match my 2011 LG appliances. LG....you lose on this one! Will purchase another brand where I can see what's over-cooking. What on earth were you thinking? Listen to the women who use these appliances.....please.
Nice and large, but some features could be improved
About Me Casual Cook
Comments about LG Black Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:
I really don't like that it doesn't do repeat beeps when food is done. I forget all of the time that I have food in there if I don't hear the 1st beep. Instead, I use the timer on my oven to remind me. I also wish that it had a quick 1 minute, 2 minute, 3 minute, etc. timer button. It doesn't have that. I do like that it has a pull out shelf for collecting fumes from the stove below. I don't know if I would recommend this to a friend. I'm on the fence.
The microwave has awesome features
from Ludlow, MA, USA
The microwave is really easy to use and we like the shelving in it for ease of use in heating up multiple items. I like the under lights as well as the exhaust fan for they are are a real nice added feature.
from Cartersville, GA, USA
We have been using this MW for about six months and have been very impressed with overall results and some of the special features. Reheat, warming, and extended exhaust are all great features.
Cosmetic problem I can't solve
from Chino, CA, USA
The film that covers the control buttons has unsightly bubbles that I have tried to smooth to no avail. Microwave works great, is quiet and without these bubbles would be fantastic.
