Summary: Have had no issues In the 6 months we have owned it. For the price it does the job I need it to do. A microwave should never be ones main source of cooking, that being said I use mine practically everyday though for heating up something and it hadn't died on me yet. My only complaint if any is the annoying beeping can't be turned off.
Summary: Worse microwave ever, so bad that I logged on specifically to write a review to warn others. I purchased this microwave from a chain store and it worked for 4 months or so then stopped heating all together, I brought it back to the store and they graciously replaced it with another one---well I've had that second one now for 4 months and numbers 7-8-9 do not work, I cannot set my time nor can I heat anything for those amounts of time.
Summary: Do a quick google check on this microwave. Check Target's reviews. This microwave sucks! My experience pretty much sums it up. Purchased this at Target, and returned it soon after. The control panel buttons ultimately quit working. First, the control panel would randomly say "DEF1" and the clock would reset. I would have to press cancel before using the microwave. Then this happened more frequently.
Summary: I dont regularly use microwave and bought this in July 2013 and by Dec end it started giving me problems. It would always flash 'DEF1' and I had to press Clear and start 30 sec buttons together to make it work. After a month the keypad totally stopped working, so not able to use this at all. There doesn't seem to be any resolution for this as its beyond warranty period and there is no fix available for this when I searched online.
Summary: I've had my Emerson for about 6 months and it was fine for about 4.5 - 5 months. Then the plastic on the buttons started blistering. It wouild go defrost setting when you punched in a number or hit start and that became more and more frequent. Sometimes you could get it off of defrost by punching random numbers but that soon ended. I was left with only the 30 second start button working and now even that only works about 1 out of 6 tries. Love the color though.
Summary: I loved the speed of heating food but got the surprise of my life after contacting Emerson and expressing my concern about the interior peeling and was brushed off with "its from to much condensation".Some how i thought a 3 year old microwave should have been able to stand up to some moisture I have had others for 10 years or more and never had that problem.
Summary: I purchased this microwave at Target when I moved into my apartment. Price was reasonable & unit attractive w/ stainless door & easy digital control pad. Had this product for just 4 months, 30 days over 90-day warranty. It spontaneously goes on to Defrost 1 on its own & does not respond to the Clear command. I have also noticed a burning odor, but no fire.
Summary: It worked awesome for about six months or so, then all of the buttons on the front except for the 30 second plus button works. So i can still use it, as long as all i need is thirty second increments. I didnt buy it from Amazon, but wanted to let people know to stay away from this one as it is not something you can expect to last.
