This is a great over the range microwave oven. It is quiet and very easy to use. I love the EZ-ON to quickly select 30 seconds without having to push so many buttons. It looks great and cooks quickly. Love all of the features. Would recommend LGE products to everyone for the quality, price, and customer service!

Microwave works great but the extenda vent cover cracked after one week. The extenda vent cover is made from plastic and cracked due to heat from the cooktop below (another LG product). I would recommend not purchasing this microwave if you own a cooktop below with high heat output.

Horrible product, short life
from Mansfield, TX, United States
Comments about LG Stainless Steel Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:
I bought this unit and 14 months later (out of warranty) it decides to just stop working. The service call it $165 plus parts. I can buy a new unit for that kind of money. Won't buy an LG product again, very disappointed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Stopped heating a year later.
from Chicago, IL, USA
Worked great up until a few days ago when it just stopped heating and started making a loud noise. Warranty is no longer valid and finding someone in the area that fixes LG appliances is nearly impossible. Eventually, paying to repair makes no sense considering the price that was originally paid to purchase the appliance. Might as well buy a new one. If it breaks down good luck finding a place that can fix it for a reasonable price.

I like the ability to soften my butter for baking in the microwave. It is programmed for butter and then you add the number of sticks you are working with.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Very nice! I especially like the extended hood.
from Redwood County, MN, USA
So far a nice unit. It is practical, powerful enough, and convenient. I like the extended pop out hood to prevent steam and grease from rising up on the unit front. Nice under hood lights with two settings. Solid fan speeds that are not too noisy and includes a "turbo" high suction option. I am very careful about how I cover foods to be heated or cooked as I don't like cleaning inside oven tops. If good longevity is in order I will give it an A+ rating in time.
Love Oven Initial Quality Bad
from Kansas, USA
I finally got the second one installed. First one was shipped without one of the nuts which are used to install the unit to the top of the unit. After another wait for the second unit to be shipped, finally installed this microwave and we love it. Have not had it long enough to determine if lifetime will be good or not.
This product is exceptional.
from Buffalo, NY, USA
We have owned this for 3 months now and i am very pleased with it. The microwave was very easy to install. The feature i like the best is the fan that extends out so you can vent the pans on the front of the stove.I would highly recommend this product because it is superior to other like microwaves.
By LG Appliance Owner
from Hillsborough Township, NJ, USA
This LG microwave is disappointing to say the least. The touchpad requires an extremely heavy "touch", which is frustrating. Additionally, there is way too much button pushing required to accomplish simple tasks, like cook for one minute on high. On my old microwave, this was a touch of the number 1. There is a design flaw in that the interior plate extends beyond the frame of the actual microwave. When placing a container in the microwave, since he plate is clear, but still protrudes beyond the appliance, the plate is easy to hit, damaging the microwave plate and the container. I wish I had my old GE microwave back!
Love this microwave but not the venting
from Indiana, USA
I have never owned an OTR microwave-this is the first experience. We completely remodeled our kitchen in June 2014 and chose 4 new LG appliances. I really like all the features of this microwave BUT buyer beware-you MUST run the fan that is over the top of the stove(underneath the microwave) while heating/cooking anything over 3 minutes. If you do not you will have tons of steam and condensation on your cabinets. I am not happy with having to do this but you can vent it out through a wall or out the top through the roof. I believe LG needs to have better venting systems for their microwaves for the price you pay you should NEVER have to run the fan while microwaving. Also in the instructions there is nothing to tell you this must be done if you recirculate into your kitchen. We had lots of problems and had to have a local LG rep/tech to come look at it. He then spoke with ANOTHER service tech and this person told him you have to run the fan when operating the microwave.
Best Microwave I've ever had.
from Kingwood, TX
This LG over range microwave is quiet, cooks perfectly, and the interior is larger than my prior oven but fits in the same space. It's everything the manufacturer says it is and more. I couldn't be happier.
Very pleased with this microwave
from Michigan, USA
Before this microwave, I would only use them to reheat food. With this microwave, I actually use it for cooking and to help out with baking prep. Spacious interior. I appreciate the built-in features, particularly defrost on busy evenings. The extending vent is very functional - prevents steam from condensing on the front of the microwave and it covers the entire cooktop surface.
