answer 2
When installing a microwave oven over the range, the measurement needed is from the cooktop surface to the bottom of the cabinetry above the microwave oven, which should be a distance of no less than 30” at its narrowest point. If this spacing is correct, then the unit will be installed properly.

I apologize, but this microwave oven does not have a specific timer to be used to coordinate a meal. If you are wishing to use the display as a standard kitchen timer, this can be done by pressing TIME, enter the amount of time, and then press POWER LEVEL, and press the number ‘0’. When you press the START/ENTER button, the unit will allow the display to count down without running the heating portion of the unit. If you have additional questions about this unit, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.

The removal of a door handle on this microwave oven requires the disassembly of the door. As this can lead to the instability of the filters in the door, we cannot recommend attempting to replace only the handle. We recommend having a service technician replace the entire door. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair....

We appreciate your interest in the installation of this microwave oven. Installation brackets, instructions, and hardware are provided with the product. Keep in mind, however, that the installation kit is designed to install this unit to a wall. There is no mounting bracket for the underside of a cabinet.

This model is installed over my gas range top. It vents from the top of the microwave, so the fan does not interfere with the flame.

Once the cook time has been entered, the POWER LEVEL pad can be used as a Kitchen Timer by entering ‘0’ for the COOK POWER. The oven will count down the cooking time set without generating heat.

I asked where is the timer and I get the reply

Once the cook time has been entered, the POWER LEVEL pad can be used as a Kitchen Timer by entering ‘0’ for the COOK POWER. The oven will count down the cooking time set without generating heat.

When you do this the microwave might not generate heat but it still is running why not a kitchen timer that works without the mircowave running?

Your interest in the LG 1.6 cu. ft. Non-Sensor Over the Range Microwave Oven, Model # LMV1683SW is appreciated. This unit does not vent out, it has a built-in Auto Vent Feature which when the temperature from the range or cooktop below the oven gets too hot, the exhaust fan in the vent hood will automatically turn on at the HIGH
setting to protect the oven.
It may stay on up to an hour to cool the oven. When this occurs, the pad will not turn the fan off. You cannot turn the exhaust fan off during microwave cooking. The Vent fan automatically shuts off when it determines that the area beneath has reached a safe temperature...^IFV

Hello tmathues. Thank you for your inquiry. The MVH1615WW was manufactured as a Goldstar product and although that is still LG, however, there is no direct comparison between that unit and the LG 1.6 cu. ft. Non-Sensor Over the Range Microwave Oven, Model # LMV1683SW. Both are Over-the-Range products and the instructions for the spacing requirements are still the same. The minimum allowable clearance between the cabinets is still 30 inches and the minimum allowable distance from the cooking surface to the bottom of the cabinet is also 30". A grounded 120V- 60Hz wall outlet with a 15 or 20A pre-circuit must be available inside the upper cabinet. The microwave is set for a recirculating vent by default, but if you have an existing vent that goes through the roof or through the rear wall and it comes with a rectangular exhaust adaptor that you will need to install on the microwave in order for your ducts to fit. Other duct pieces are not included with the microwave, so you may need to purchase those separately from your retailer or home improvement store. There is a template provided with the installation instructions and you may also have to align the vent blower motor with your vent duct...^IFV

Question

Does the LMV1683SW Vent from the front?

The microwave will be above the range, under some cabinets. It is on an interior wall. There is no venting system. How does this unit vent? From the front? Where does it blow to? Out into the kitchen or behind?
