Summary: We purchase this item in November of 2012 for use in a new apartment. Since then the control panel has become partially inoperable (e.g. the stop and reset buttons do not work). There are several other problems and I would advise against purchasing this item. The replacement warranty is only good for 3 months.
Summary: The machine is very good; BUT, you can only choose loud sound until you stop it or no sound at all (this includes at entering commands). Often, I do not need to remove item immediately; so, this is really annoying. It continues until you return or there is a power failure. They really should allow a medium choice of One-Beep-Then-Hush.
Summary: Tragic, we really liked this unit until... yesterday. Seems a few arbitrary dinner reheat cycles killed it, after a 17-month run. I fully agreed with the scattered reviews in this unit. Pros-This a decent microwave with an attractive finish, and many handy features. Cons-Unfortunately, microwaves die suddenly and unexpectedly. As with my previous microwave, likely failure from blown power transformer or blown magnetron (microwave generator).
Summary: The unit worked very well for the year that I had it but it suddenly stopped working. When I would set the timer it would light up and count down but no microwave action. Called LG since it was still under warranty and they told me they no longer made this model and refunded my money. I am guessing they stopped making this unit because it didn't last very long.
Summary: I purchased this microwave for office breakroom use. It has lasted a year and 2 weeks. While it worked, we were all very happy with the microwave. Cooked and reheated many meals according to the recipe - no adding extra time necessary! The beeping at the end of cook time was loud enough to hear, but not too loud to be disturbing (beeped about once a minute if you left your meal in there). Display is good, well lit. Easy to use and understand.
Summary: Even though I always rely on reviews when I shop, I guess I'm too lazy to write them myself as this is my frst review. When I first bought this microwave, I researched ALL reviews. At the time, this microwave had awesome reviews. It was a little pricey, but the reviews made up for it. Now the average rating is 2.8 stars. I would NOT have bought this or even considered this at that rating. I KNOW ME!!!
Summary: Our family really liked this microwave for the first year that we had it. It was very fast and had great features such as the soften/melt buttons. However, after a year, we got a horrible, burning smell whenever we used it. Now, it is back to searching for another microwave. Unfortunately, the first replacement that I ordered was bad out of the box.
Summary: Wow this was the worst thing ever. After unloading it from the box, we plugged it in and did it work?! NO!!!!!!! It just sat there, a dead microwave, doing nothing. We double checked our outlets and they were working. Then we decided to call customer service (after the instructions in the box did nothing) and they told us to make sure our outlets were working. THE NERVE!!!
Summary: I have had this microwave for 1 year & 4 months only. After I reheat food or defrost food when microwave is finished I open the door and it automatically starts up again! Very scary! This just started happening and has been fine up to this point! I called LG and the microwave only has a 1 year warranty! So I am out of luck! I can take it somewhere to be fixed but that is more money out of my pocket! I will buy a new microwave but it won't be an LG!
