The glass exploded and shattered across our kitchen

published

I was washing the dishes, and the microwave's front door glass shattered across our kitchen with a rather big bang! We were lucky my one-year-old daughter was not in the kitchen then. The microwave was not running at all, and nothing hit it either. It was not in use at the time.

It's not uncommon for poorly made tempered glass to shatter. It happens to glass tables too. Our glass door had a fault, and LG should rectify the situation.

The customer service has been very bad at LG and Myer, where we purchased it. LG even told us to bring it in for it to be inspected! The fact that it had pieces of glass sticking out of it is a real danger.

It's just a microwave

published

To disable the annoying tune that plays every 30 seconds to remind you that the reheating is finished: press and hold the stop/cancel button and the inverter button at the same time for a few seconds. You'll see OFF on the screen and all sounds will be off.

Absolute dud!

published

Stopped heating, closest repairer 2hour round trip away (we are 20 mins from major city!) Customer service was awful, hard to understand and wouldn’t organise a courier to collect and return item. Won’t be buying any LG products in future! Update: was the inverter, so not charged for repair, but disappointing all around

Terrible, don't buy it

published

We bought it last year June because of the good reviews. Whilst it was good, it just suddenly died on us last night. Its only been 17 months! We have had other microwaves and they have all lasted a LOT longer than 17 months. Did not expect LG things to be so fragils. Save yourselves money and hassle and buy something else

LG Needs to Advertise in BOLD that this microwave will knock out your WIFI and Bluetooth when in use. Not recommended.

Thank you for acknowledging this. Hopefully LG can improve the design of this product to not interfere with wifi in future.

Well worth the upgrade!

published

Upgraded to this microwave after owning a small ANKO (kmart) microwave, after my mother and grandmother were happy with their similar LG models. I am so glad I did, heats up food very quickly and it tastes much nicer. I do a lot of meal prep and freezing bulk meals, can take a little while to heat up from frozen, but heats very evenly without cold spots in the middle. Also love the sleek look of the microwave.

Purchased in at JB Hi-Fi.

This is perfect

published

I love this microwave. It's stylish, easy to clean, cooks evenly and I love the microwave sound at the the end of each cook. I found it strange at first especially with how you open the microwave but after a week I got used to it. It's a great product overall

Problem turntable

Worked well at first but now the turntable clunks around - I’ve tried moving it but still a problem. Pity as I was just getting used to the many functions. Guess I’ll need to return

Great value and stylish

published

I love this microwave, it's functional, stylish, and cheap. For me, I only use my microwave to reheat a meal occasionally so this is perfect for me. If you need a small, cheap microwave that doesn't look or function like a cheap microwave this is worth a look.

Backed up by good customer service

published

Bought just over 14 weeks ago and was delighted with its performance and sleek design. The defrost function left meat evenly defrosted without the cooked edges, and food cooked quickly and evenly. I quite enjoyed the end-of-cycle chirrup/melody, even though it was persistent. The unit was very quiet, and was easy to clean.
Unfortunately it developed a problem with the magnetron. After conversations with LG, this issue was resolved to my complete satisfaction.

The singing microwave

published

The black design on this microwave looks sleek and modern. The manufacturing materials are of high quality. It is very reliable and cooks food evenly. There are a number of programming features but honestly I just use the quick start mode. I like that this microwave has a single button start. You don't need to enter the time or turn dials like some other microwaves.
