Went dead (totally) right after 1 year warranty lapsed. $240 for complete overhaul paid and given 3 months warranty on repairs. 2 month later a button (#1) stopped working and a week later fan was gone. Dropped the unit at the repair shop but, what a surprise, the guy insisted that they cover just what they replaced (power supply unit) and not the repairs. And these guys are official shop for LG. So, stay away from the brand and their repairs network.

Comment:
We bought this to match our new range and have been very happy with it. Our previous microwave had plastic facia which didn't stand up to tweens. The old one also vented to the inside. I was a painful check to write, but I had a plumber install an outside vent. Now because of that, I can't make a direct comparison to our previous microwave, but it's my opinion this unit vents very well. Not perfect, but very well. <br /><br />For the microwave portion itself I've not ran into any issues. It has defrosted meat just fine. One final thought, I was able to get a better price from a mom-and-pop shop than the big box stores. Same was true for our other kitchen appliances.

Had new unit installed 23 months ago. Before first use, the unit did not work. Technician came out and replaced a broken door frame, the slide out vent, the turn table motor, shaft and wheels. That's right, the wheels were not even round! The unit was clearly a lemon and we would have returned it had it not been installed at some expense. A few months later, the computer malfunctioned and was replaced under warranty. Now the computer is not working correctly. The only solution is to open and close the door hard several times to make unit operational until the next time we want to use it.
