About This Brand

LG recently introduced a model with a door that swings upward and is introducing a model with a keep-warm feature--new to the market--and bottom controls. It was LG that introduced the glide tray, which moves from side to side instead of in a circle--good for rectangular dishes--and also hidden vents. LG also introduced the blue interior cavity in its products. The microwaves are available for $300 to $800 at Home Depot, Sears, and large regional and independent dealers.

My last over the range microwave/ vent hood, gave us (family of 4) 23yrs of trouble free service before failing. Now its only the wife and I at home, so the new oven got 1/2 the usage and it failed after only 13 months. My first and last LG product!

Thing quit heating after 3 months. year warranty not worth much if you live in an area were there are no certified repair techs. I was told i would be contacted in 3-5 business days. after a week i called back and they said they were having trouble finding a tech. I asked if they could just issue a RA number and i would just go exchange it. They said no. We will contact you when we find a tech to come to fix it. I asked to talk to a supervisor. No you cant because they are not here today.

One-to-three months
