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.

Good over all design, but
from Medford, OR, United States
Comments about LG Black Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

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
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
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.

Great microwave/fan combo
from Chicago, IL
About Me Avid Cook
I never liked the idea of an over-stove microwave...until now. This is a great looking unit with all the necessary features. It has 2 lights to illuminate the entire cooktop. The fan, if a bit noisy, has enough power to vent my convection oven. The pop out fan that extends over the cooktop is just plain cool. The only thing I don't like is that I have to remove the wire rack if I'm warming up something in a glass measuring cup or bowl because there's not enough clearance. Pleased with this purchase.
Built better than I thought
By Nice Guy
from Middletown, DE, USA
I bought this microwave twice. My grandson was using the microwave as a timer for the oven when it's timer failed. He was operating the microwave with nothing in it for several weeks before it finally failed as well. Most microwaves would have failed much sooner operating with nothing in it. The controls and features are great and it has good looks. A bit pricey but it seems well worth every penny.
3rd Times A Charm
from Virginia, USA
We purchased this microwave to replace an older microwave, so size was important. The first unit we received had a faulty sliding exhaust fan (it would pop open when ever we opened the door, or sometimes just on it's own). That unit was replaced with one that apparently had a bent motor shaft. We were told that was fixable but they would have to dismantle the entire unit, so we opted to just have that replaced as well. As stated above, the 3rd times the charm. We've had no issues with this unit at all and love the sleek style and power that is has. I also love the slide out exhaust fan. It gets to my front burners much better. We are quite happy now.
from Springfield, VA, USA
I haven't had a bad frozen meal yet (yes, dieting!) that wasn't perfectly heated through, and still moist. My wife actually prefers the ambiance of the microwave's under mount lighting over our high-end under counter lighting.
