No problems

  • Summary: We have had no problems with this microwave and have had it for nearly 5 years. Apparently it is a hit or miss item, but we have had good luck with ours.

Almost burned down my house. Thanks, Emerson!

Florida Girl, Amazon
21 March 2013
  • Summary: It's never been a great microwave, but I could live with that. But today I started hearing random beeps coming from the kitchen. All morning, irregularly spaced beeping, like an electronic whose battery is dying. But then the house filled with smoke that smelled like melting electronics. Frightening, to say the least. I tossed that sucker out of my house immediately.

Shuts Itself Off after 4 Min of Cooking

ShelleySargent, Amazon
22 July 2012
  • Summary: This has got to be the WORST appliance in history! It's a microwave that shuts itself off (we are talking - like it loses power somehow) anytime you try to cook something for more than 4 min. Ours is LESS than 3 weeks old, I have an extended warrenty but really dont want another one - who has time to be returning microwave after microwave???

Not Good Enough

preppy8459, Amazon
21 July 2012
  • Summary: I didn't buy this microwave from Amazon, but I wanted to voice my disappointment anyways. Within a year of purchasing this microwave it had actually started to rust thru the bottom. That never seemed to affect how it worked or how well it cooked things, but it only got worse as time went on. I will be replacing it soon for fear that as the glass plate inside continues to go around and around it will soon fall thru.

  • Summary: i have used this microwave nightly for years and have never had an issue with it. i like its large capacity and the presets. don't want to discount other reviewers because their issues are consistent enough to pose a concern -- but i never had any problem with this oven. i'd buy it again.

Overheats and won't turn off

Sue, Amazon
8 January 2012
  • Summary: This is less 2 years old and used once or twice a week. All of a sudden it won't turn off unless the door is opened. Also, the fan isn't working, which would explain the overheating. Opened it up and the fuse is fine, can't see any loose wires, plugged it in and it immediately started running, but the fan didn't, even with a manual turn. Piece of junk - the last Emerson I'll buy.

Overheats and shuts off

Christa, Amazon
19 July 2011
  • Summary: This microwave has been a frustration to me since about 8 months after we bough it. It started to overheat and shut down. At first it was after about 8-10 minutes of continuous use. Now it has gotten progressively worse to the point that we cannot even cook a bag of popcorn before it overheats and shuts off. When I called Emerson they stated that they had no complaints about this machine. I will never buy another Emerson brand appliance.

Worked well for 2 years... then died.

Slobo, Amazon
15 June 2011
  • Summary: The title says it all- it worked OK for 2 years then died. My only complaints other than that is the 5 beeps when it is done cooking, and the timer can't be used if you want to cook something. Other than that it cost me $50 per year to own. Would not buy Emerson again, bought this one at Wally World.

It's lasted 2 years and 10 months without a problem

Larry "audiophile", Amazon
4 March 2011
  • Summary: This microwave cooks well. I use the timer also when cooking food in the regular oven. One time, I accidentally turned the empty microwave on for 20 minutes instead of just setting the timer while I had something in the regular oven. I noticed a weird burning smell a few minutes later. I came back in and saw the microwave was causing the smell, and the display was off. The microwave had shut itself completely off before it burned itself out.
