Garbage

Do not bother. This microwave should be removed from sale. It heats food perfectly when you first use it, but it will inevitably fail after a few months to a year or so of moderate use. We just had our magnetron replaced (a known fault, the local authorised repairer said). Now, the rotary dial won't push in and out. Despite its price tag, this microwave is not the premium product it proclaims to be. It looks great, but this is garbage. Avoid at all costs unless you like waiting for your products to be repaired. Show details

Disappointing product - Kills WIFI & Bluetooth/rust/loss of power

After a bit more than 2 years it became apparent it was killing our WiFi and Bluetooth, areas of rust were starting to form, and the efficiency was dropping (extra heating time required). Have numerous LG appliances and am very dissapointed with this purchase. We have tried persevering with it but we are at the point of extreme frustration, hence my decision to only now leave a review. Looks like a new microwave purchase will have to happen because this is killing our way of life, particularly with the WiFi issue, and it seems we are not alone. Show details

Terrible piece of equipment

Very fragile. Bought this unit after my last unit lasted 10 years. This unit broke in 2 years just outside warranty period. It stopped heating. It was showing signs after a year, was hit and miss with heat. Suggestion to owner of this unit if any heating issue during warranty call the customer service immediately as it is failing after warranty otherwise lolzz.10 year warranty is the biggest legal scam, please don’t fall for it, you have to pay $100 for $60 parts. Show details

Tremendous waste of hard earned money

It stopped its very basic operation of reheating in just under 2 months after purchasing. And that we want a refund for our purchase. Show details

Stopped heating when 6 months out of warranty

Microwave worked perfectly for less than 3 years, then stopped heating. It wouldn't have been used even twice a week for a reheat. I must say, despite it being out of warranty LG at least covered first repair as it was a parts fault, but it did it again about 6 weeks later and wouldn't cover it. Show details

Has just died after 3.5 years

As others have said, this unit was good while it worked. I am astounded it has failed after relatively light use and after such a short time. Show details

stopped heating

Like many others here, the microwave has stopped heating 3 months out of warranty. I'd expect a much longer life from a microwave at this price point from a known brand. Show details

Wouldn't work after 8 months use. Replacement lasted just over 2 years

This microwave stopped working after only 8 months of use. It was replaced under warranty. The replacement lasted for approximately 2 years and 3 months and during that period it would take 3-4 attempts to start it. Our previous microwave (National Panasonic Genius) was still working after 37 years!! We only replaced it because it would not fit in the kitchen in our new house. Show details

Stop heating just over 2 years

Bought this microwave in January 2020 and absolutely loved it, great appliance, easy to use, powerful, sleek finish but it just stop heating this week... after the warranty period was over of course! Argh! I would have expected this appliance to have a longer lifespan, most of the 1 start reviews state this issue, wonder is LG is doing something about it, very disappointed!! Show details

Great machine, but it died :-(

I love this microwave so much! It's the best I've ever had. Then this week, it stopped working, just 2.5 years in. I'm so sad. I'd expect more for the price. Show details

Everything excellent except. Such a shame

My wife and I settled on this stainless steel microwave with the hopes it would last more or less the 10 years most appliances last. The functions were easy to learn and excellent in working. Our first inverter experience and it couldn't be better. Then one day: looked like a very tiny spillage on both sides, but it seemed very difficult to clean. The dreaded 'rust never sleeps' had struck and on the r/h edge of where the wall meets the base, it expanded to 6cm long. We had hoped the machine would last 10 years; well to tell the truth we're old and hoped we would last 10 years, but there it is. A great Mwave but with a spoiler after 4 years use. Sad face :-( Show details

Hi. Bought this product microwave LG model MS4266OBS. On this September. Was highly disappointed as it stopped its very basic function of reheating in hardly 2 months after the purchase. Didn’t expect this from a established manufacturer like LG, have been using its products over years. How would the company resolve this issue as it’s still under warranty with original warranty and packaging? Waiting for company response. Thank you

What’s the LG service centre number for PERTH, Western Australia? I get the F-3 error repeatedly and it’s driving me insane.

Is it normal to have a lot of condensation around the outside of the microwave after use?
