Junk, beware of all Electrolux units

cjre, ABT Electronics

  • Summary: This microwave is very loud, two went out on me in a month. The magnetrons are bad. Can't see the buttons, noisy, very loud exhaust fans, interior light is very dim, hardly any chime to hear when item is done, no backlight to see buttons, the magnetron is very loud and will fail. More than 80% of these units fail within 16 months, etc. Very bad make. Don't buy. Please do research online and see for yourself. Not worth the money at all.
  • Pros: Attractive Design
  • Cons: Hard To See Display, Heats Unevenly, Noisy, Unreliable

I would never buy Electrolux again !!!

czarna, ABT Electronics

  • Summary: The worst microwave I ever bought. I had this microwave for a year and it broke down on me 5 times! I had to deal with Electrolux over and over again and they refuse to exchange it for new one. Every single time it broke down on me they would send somebody to fix it. In the matter of three months after repair, same part was broken again. So finally, I got it exchange in January of this year for new unit. Guess what, broke down again, after 4 months and it is same part.
  • Pros: Attractive Design
  • Cons: Unreliable

  • Summary: This is the second unit we've had in 8 months and it still doesn't act right. The magnatron failed the first time now it just seems like there's a problem with the internal motor or fan. It's terrible, listen to the other reviews, I wish I had.
  • Pros: style, cooking options
  • Cons: Low quality, Not durable, poor design, poor function

Brittle plastic

unhappy electrolux customer, Amazon
22 July 2011
  • Summary: This is our fourth Electrolux Microwave. We updated from the previous model with the opening button on side. We went thru four of them because the plastic broke (crumbled) on each unit. We were hoping Electrolux was concerned enough with their product to correct this issue with the EI30SM55JS30. We have had this unit approximately three months and the plastic is once again beginning to break. DO NOT PURCHASE AN ELECTROLUX PRODUCT.

Terrible Product.

  • Summary: I have had my Electrolux over the oven Microwave for 4 years. We purchased an extended warranty. The unit stopped heating and Electrolux told our repair man the unit is not repairable. After only 4 years what a piece of crap. Now I'm worried about my 4 year old Electrolux stove! Stay away from this company!!

WHy only one star?

Lynn R. Thomas, Amazon

  • Summary: Ours is (was) a nice shiny Stainless steel 1200 Watt top of the line Electrolux Microwave built in with fan vented to the outside. We bought it along with a top of the line Electrolux ($1200) Dishwasher and a $2600 dual fuel Electrolux Gas/Electric range. We bought them from RC Willey in Orem, Utah on the advise of the salesman that we were getting the very best and top quality of anything out there.

Best Looking Piece Of Junk I Ever Purchased!

Kaiser, reviews.lowes.com
13 April 2011
  • Summary: Looks got me! I love the glass control panel that perfectly matched glass control panel of Kenmore slide-in range. Internal walls are paper thin and it sounds like buzzsaw when it is running or sanding a large empty steel box (thin walls) with a vivrating sander. Customer service rep told me it is normal. Also, the support rack is very thin wire and three out of four supports are touching the rack and it rattles.
  • Pros: great looks
  • Cons: Low quality, Not durable, very thin walls

Not worth your time or your money!!!

  • Summary: We purchased this microwave to match an electrolux stove and dishwasher. Right out of the box the door was defective. Fogged and fingerprints between panes of glass on door. I called Electrolux that day. The first day I purchased the microwave~ that was six weeks ago. To this day have not received a new door. Electrolux has the worst customer support I have ever encountered. One hand has no idea what the other is doing, say they are going to call back, they don't.
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: everything

Worst Piece Of Expensive Junk!

Manny, reviews.lowes.com
4 January 2011
  • Summary: As soon as we bought this microwave we had to have it replaced due to an out of box failure. Two months later the microwave started making a loud vibrating noise inside while in use. We found that when we remove the grill, the noise would stop. The service rep said that came said that they will send us a new grill. I don't know if that will fix it. I just can't believe that for the exorbitant amount of money we paid that this would such junk! Don't buy Electrolux!
