Question about LG LMV1650ST Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Oven turns on by itself when boiling water on stove!

This is an over the range type model so it should be able to handle steam from food being cooked below. This happened chronically and finally, the oven can only be stopped now if I open the door. I have unplugged the oven, let it "dry out" for 2 weeks and it still started operating as soon as I close the door. Finally, after another week I can plug in the oven, shut the door and the unit does not come on. However, now when I try to cook something in it, it sounds like it is operating, but the food is not heating up. Is it time to move on to a new unit?

Sounds like a mis-aligined, or defective door switch. I would suspect defective.

Why does my brand new microwave produce lots of internal moisture when heating ready meals?


The new oven is providing more heat to your food, causing more water to boil out of it by the time it is done. It may be OK to shorten your cooking times in response to the higher power efficiency if it bothers you. Then again, maybe you bought a microwave steam oven. They're cool.

May Spacemaker XL1800 stop heating food. Was working fine. Then just stop


Is this an over the stove type unit? I have had a few problems with my over the range spacesaver. I think the heat from cooking gets up into the microwave and damages it. The steam from me boiling things on the stove had mine quit heating and I purchased a new one. The parts to replace the faulty ones can be quite expensive over $150.00, so its better to purchase a new microwave.

Hot microwave door handle


I always recommend that you use the vent fan whenever you're cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls and door panels.

I have an over-the-range microwave. When cooking on the stove surface, as steam hits the microwave, it will suddenly turn on. Occasionally you can reset, but usually has to be unplugged to make it work...


That will be caused by condensation affecting the controls of the microwave oven. Not a lot can be done about that except cut down on the steam maybe or wait for the temperature to rise slightly avoiding the condenation problem.

Keypad not working after boiling water below


Direct spraying of cleaners on the keypad and steam from the cooktop can damage the controls.

I always recommend that you spray non-ammonia cleaner on a soft cloth (not a paper towel which can scratch) and gently wipe the keypad.

And I always recommend that you use the vent fan whenever you're cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls and door panels.

If it does not dry out over time, it may need to be manually dried or blown out.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts here.

I'd recommend that your bookmark this link to your favorites.


Otherwise, the keypad may be damaged or worn out, or control unit may be damaged.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please include your full model number from the tag in or on the unit) for a free estimate and free tips & do-it-yourself advice.

Your full model number would be one of these: JVM1540DM1BB JVM1540DM1CC JVM1540DM1WW JVM1540LM1CS JVM1540SM1SS

So far so good we unplugged the machine took the filters off the bottom let everything dry out over night and it seems to be working I'll update you tomorrow. I think the steam got the control pannel wet.

Shuts itself off mid cooking cycle -- as if unplugged; then after 5 minutes or so turns itself back on as if it was just plugged in (forgetting all previous settings)


If you just put the fan blade back on, it will almost certainly fall off again.

The best bet is to slightly rough up the contact area of the shaft with sandpaper and use a little super glue to hold the blade assembly on the shaft, and let it set a few minutes before using it.

I always recommend that you use the hood vent exhaust fan when cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

Microwave turned off


I always suggest that the hood / exhaust fan be on whenever you're cooking on the stove top. This helps keep grease and steam out of the controls.

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

Otherwise, you may have a bad controller, which we may be able to repair for you.

Random beeping and panel buttons not working


There may be a failure of some type in the system processor area.

Maybe some of the steam from the bioling water and oil and water from the cooking got inside on to the circuit board, and caused some damage.

It is also possible that the heat from the stove did some damage.

It is also possible that there was simply a failure in the system processor area.
