Buy something else. This one failed twice in two years.
21 July 2015
Summary: Wish I had read more about this oven. Bad experience, control panel failed after 15 months and again after 8 months. Was going to have to do it again but the part was out of stock. Leads me to believe that this happens often to others. I have two Lg smart tvs, love them, hate the microwave ovens.
Summary: Same as others, worked fine and then it runs while door is open. VBery scary. I threw it out and bought a German brand. LG is supposed to make AV units for all brand name monitors..aka TVs. Maybe they should stick to what they know best and leave microwaves alone.
Summary: After having the microwave for a couple weeks it quit working. The error displayed is "Door". Called about warranty and they stated that it is a known issue and we would need to send it in for repair under warranty.
Summary: I had this model for only 2 1/2 years and now some of the buttons on the front panel don't work. I can press numbers 1-5 and the "stop" button but numbers 6-0 and the "start" button do nothing. I tried some of the preset buttons and the microwave ran but no heat. The unit is now worthless.
Summary: I purchased this microwave 14 months ago as I respected the LG brand. After about a year of regular but light use, the microwave started overheating on the defrost cycle. Then it began turning back on by itself when I opened the door! Now it is non fuctional.
Summary: The stop button was the first to go, within 6 months, now the 0 and the clock don't work either. It's a pain in the butt to get a warranty repair done,you have to take it to the repair facility that may or may not be located in the same city as you and drop it off.
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.
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.
