Summary: We purchased this Lmv1813ST. /02 microwave from Home Depot 5/24/2014. After installing in our kitchen we could hardly read the control panel, the light being less than in the store. As a temporary solution, I made a photo of the control panel, brightened and increased the contrast and printed out of the size for the microwave taping it to the control panel. If only LG would supply me with a permanent readable decal!
Summary: We bought a appliance package with 4 appliances, all LG, we have only had them for 2 months and the micro will not heat, and the turn table stopped working, the fan on it is also very loud. I am very disappointed, I hope that I don't have problems like this right away with the other appliances. Not the most expensive appliances, but I thought LG was a good product, not so sure now.
Summary: Not quite up to my expectations of the usual quality of all my other LG appliances. It's performance is excellent. The problem I face is a very noisy fan located just above the control panel. LG sent out someone to fix it, but the noise came back.
Pros: Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings
