Was a great microwave until it died

Robert L. Sacci, Amazon
27 November 2014
  • Summary: Was a great microwave until it died. Lasted only 3 years. I tried to change the fuse but that didn't help. Seems like the board is shot. I'm sorta disappointed with its product life.

Peeling paint inside :(

tundrarules, Amazon
23 July 2014
  • Summary: After a few years of use the paint inside is coming off. Hope the radiation is contained in the microwave!!! All else works good....bad paint job!! Poor quality junk I would expect these days! Please someone make a good brand and charge a premium for the quality.

If you want to get screwed, buy Amana.

H. Howe, Amazon
9 July 2014
  • Summary: Ours lasted about 2 and a half years before the keypad started pressing the 1 button over and over on it's own until it gave an error. Can't find a replacement part so we are going to toss it.

Three years in - works great

Timothy, Amazon
25 May 2014
  • Summary: I've had this baby for three years and it's definitely the best appliance purchase I've ever had. I love the quiet setting! I'm a quiet dude and have never needed to shrill beep of a nuker to tell me my food is ready. The tag team of me nose and tummy remind me that food is being prepared.

Amana ain't what it used to be now that it is a Whirlpool/Maytag product.

S. Hunter "reikiusui3", Amazon
16 February 2014
  • Summary: Had an original RadarRange which worked perfectly for 15 years and was still working fine for the person i sold it to for at least 2 years after I moved. This model lasted less than 2 years. Guess I won't be buying the Maytag/whirlpool version again. It was a well researched but expensive mistake.

Paint peeling

Janice M. Zappone "retired to NM", Amazon
7 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought this microwave in February 2012 and love it. That is, until the paint started to chipping from the top of the microwave. I have started using a plastic cover to keep paint chips out as well as splatters in.

Works great

J. Clinton, Amazon
9 June 2013
  • Summary: We have been through many microwaves, they usually only last about a year (we must be pretty tough on them). This one has lasted several years and still has the appearance of being new, as well as working like it is new. It has a large capacity and heats evenly.

Unreliable and died after 14 months

PGA, Amazon
21 August 2012
  • Summary: I bought this unit 14 months ago, spending extra on the Amana name, hoping I'd buy a little more reliability than I'd found on my previous microwave, a GE. Alas, it died twice during the warranty period (Amana repaired it), and now, two months out of warranty it has gone on the fritz again - resets...

You get what you pay for

ENunezJr, Amazon
25 July 2012
  • Summary: I bought this microwave for my company's kitchen. We received it early December 2011, it is now July 2012 and its not working at all now. Nothing, nada, zilch. No more Amanas for us.

Amana Microwave

dtrader, Amazon
4 July 2012
  • Summary: The Amana Countertop microwave oven was a replacement for an older one I had for 15 years. When the cost of the glass tray exceeds 25% of the cost of a new microwave oven, its time to replace it. The oven left New York and arrived in California in the time stated. Well packaged no damage.
