Summary: We have had this microwave for just over 2 years. I have stopped using it because it acts like it will short out and catch fire. I hope it has not hurt my electrical wires as some reviewers have claimed. I also hope it hasn't been spewing who knows what in to our food or the air in our house. I wish we had never bought it.
Would be nice if they made it more obvious that it's meant ...

Summary: I bought this microwave from Target over 3 years ago and am still using it. The plastic over the numbers was bubbling up, which I thought was cheap, so I finally decided to just rip it off...that's when I realized it was supposed to come off! The plastic was just a protective cover. Would be nice if they made it more obvious that it's meant to be removed. The microwave doesn't seem to be very consistent in power sometimes, but it could be my electrical outlets..
Summary: We got this in very early 2009 with a wedding gift certificate. Use it most every day. Often multiple times a day. Still use it to this day most every day, often multiple times a day. The only problem is that the waveguide cover (a 5 dollar, very easily installed product) has gone out twice, causing some sparking. Happened a couple years ago and again recently. I'm buying another one and look forward to using this onwards.
Summary: Be careful with this microwave, while it looks nice it is a dud. The one I received sparked fire after one day of usage, don't know if it's a manufacturing problem or seller shipping issue. Be careful of knockoffs being sold at regular price. Read a lot of bad reviews and should have listened. Would never buy again.
Summary: I purchased this microwave at target last year and have not had any problems with it at all. I am glad I read the reviews after my purchase as I probably would not have bought it. Reading the reviews surprised me since I am really happy with this microwave. It compact size and functions are perfect for our needs. It is a pretty red (not fire engine color) which I love. Looks great in our kitchen.
... a major retailer 3 months ago and it's working fine so far

Summary: Bought this model from a major retailer 3 months ago and it's working fine so far. When heating a frozen entree, though, the glass tray cracked and broke! Now it looks like $30 to replace. Not worth it considering the cost of this unit so I guess I'll just get a new, non-Emerson model that will actually last more than 3 months with Normal use! Don't we usuallyhave microwaves to help uswith frozen items??

Summary: It looked like it was stolen out of someone's apartment, it was all beat up, scratched up. I bought it for someone else and they got it and never mentioned it looking like it did then i see it today and asked what happened and they said it came that way and they just assumed i bought a used one...
Gets stuck on Defrost ALL THE TIME, making it useless
11 October 2014
Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS Why 2 stars? Because when it works it works well. When it doesn't work is when it's stuck on "Defrost", which is almost constantly! There is no way to get out of it, I have to hit the reset button maybe 20-30 times in hopes of it clearing. You can try unplugging it, but this little bugger keeps it saved. Sometimes it will only let us use the "30+ start" button which is better than nothing.
