Upon installation, the turntable would not rotate. Within 20 hours LG had a technician at my house who discovered that the elctrical connection between the turntable and its motor had not been secured. The technician secured the connection and everything has functioned perfectly since. We have the unit vented to the outside of the house and it is terrific. No smoke or odor in the house. I have only two minor complaints: (1) The underside lights are weak, and (2) the exhaust fan is a tad lound. Otherwise, this is a great microwave.

Bulky design where the height does not might code because the distance between the stove top a microwave needs to be a certain distance. This distance is smaller because of the slide out vent. The microwave control panel is located directly above the stove top and sometimes goes bizerk cause by steam and heat. Prefer the side control panel and a shorter door.

Very good but could use some little improvements.

Comments about LG Studio Series Stainless Steel Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:
We bought this microwave because we needed a new over-the-range microwave and were also adding an outside vent. This model had almost all the features we wanted and the Extenda Vent looked like it would allow it to work more effectively. That proved to be true; this unit really purges the air and keeps the kitchen free of smoke and odors. Don't discount this unit if it doesn't immediately look to work like your old one. While it took a bit of time reading the manual and learning the controls, this microwave does everything we want it to. Pluses - A timer on the vent fan allows me to have it run for another 1, 3 or 5 minutes after I leave the kitchen and then shut it self off. - The warming feature is nice. It won't heat cold food but it does keep things warm until ready to be served. It also allows you to heat up plates. - The exhaust fan really pulls the air out of the kitchen. - The kitchen timer operates independently from the cooking timer. - the Defrost setting works well. Minuses - The beep that comes at the end of the timer or at the end of the cooking time is too soft. It's OK if you are in the kitchen but not if you are 1 or two rooms away. (Designers, make the volume of the beep a customer setting.) - When the kitchen timer ends it beeps a few times and then stops. I think this alarm should sound longer and really should require you to hit a button to silence the alarm. It's too easy to miss in a busy kitchen with kids running around or people talking. - The turntable is okay but our 10 year old GE provided a more solid feel when you put a heavy casserole on it. - The automatic reheat works okay but it leaves the food not quite as hot as I like it. If heating a plate of leftovers I give it another 30 seconds via the EZ-ON button. - I do miss the delayed start my old microwave had. I could set something to heat at a specific time and then go about tending to other dishes.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Most features are good and helpful.
By Troy Hermit
The unit is quieter than many I have seen and used. Many features, such as time of day and cooking buttons, are quite simple to use. However, it is deficient in one very important way: One can not run the unit for a specified length of time by pressing just one button. My previous unit would run for I to 6 minutes by pushing just one key from number I to 6. This unit does have a key (EZ on) but it goes only for 30 seconds and one can push it up-to 4 times to run it for 2 minutes but no more. One can also add to or subtract 10 seconds from the cooking time but only if the oven is already running. Cleaning and keeping the shine is a little bit more demanding because of the metal exterior.
Second one was fine
from Seattle, WA, USA
The first one we received after my husband and son-in-law spending 5 hours to install it, when we took off the protective blue tape the finish came off on the tape. I did not know stainless steal would come off on tape... The second on was fine and I do like the microwave. By the way Home Depot did the second install. They where great. LG not so helpful, or sorry. It was another week before I got the second microwave.

The LG LSMH207ST is really a great microwave. Our only problem was it was defective when we received it. We had already installed it before we realized the display panel didn't work. So it took about a month before we got that resolved, but once we did, we love it! I love the look of it and the vent that slides out. It is also very quiet. Our old microwave did a terrible job of defrosting meat, but this one does a terrific job of defrosting. Our old one would start to cook the meat when defrosting - not good. But this one defrosts perfectly! The con, as another reviewer stated, is the interior light. I can't even see inside the microwave when it's cooking. I might try swapping out the light bulb like the other reviewer did.

Love it. It is fast, quiet, and does everything I need. Very happy with my choice.
The Good and Not So Good
from San Clemente, CA, USA
The Good: Great Microwave w/ lots of features. Our previous microwave had 'Sensor' cooking, which was a 'must have' feature and a strong point for our decision to go w/ the LG LSMH207ST. Love the 400 CFM capacity pull out vent! The Not So Good: Only con so far is the interior lighting. I could barely see what was cooking. Not good when heating/warming sauces. I changed out the two 30w bulbs that came with it for 40w bulbs. This helped. Also the two cook-top lights are halogen. I would rather they be a variable LED type lighting. Also, the three buttons dedicated to 'Popcorn', 'Mac&Cheese' and 'Chicken Nuggets' are a big waste of one step functions for us.
more than i expected
from caseyville, il
to this day i am really impressed with this micro. it's the first over the counter i've owned and i can't believe the ease and usefulness of this product. every time i use it, i never have to worry about anything. it's quiet, good looking, and even has a sensing probe. a great product for your kitchen.
Love this microwave
from Fontana, CA
I really love this microwave, it is so quiet. The slide out vent makes it nice when you are cooking on the front burners of the stove, and with the turbo fan, no smoke stays in the kitchen. Have not found one thing that I don't like about it. Great buy.

This is an exceptional microwave. From it's stainless steel finish, sensor cooking feature, warming lamp and of course its quiet operation. This is a great upgrade for any kitchen. It also offers 2 tier cooking and best of all is the extended range fan which covers vapors from the front stove burners. Truly awesome!
I love the design of this microwave
from Marysville, WA, USA
I especially love the lower horizontal control panel. My wife is short and it is much easier to use. I also like the extended vent and the fact that it only beeps once. Our last microwave would beep until the door was opened and it drove us crazy. It is fast to heatup leftovers and easy to clean. I also have an LG washer and phone and am impressed with the quality of the products they manufacture. It was a little difficult to install but looks very nice in our new kitchen.
