Summary: An earlier Panasonic microwave I had lasted 14 years (1992-2006). I replaced it with a Kenmore (2006-2012), but it didn't last. We decided on this model in 2012 because we heard from the salesperson that it was a Panasonic. It turns out that it is a LG microwave (I wouldn't have purchased this brand). Repairing it costs more than replacing it. Initially the repair guy thought that repairing the problem would be as simple as replacing a fuse.
Summary: This oven worked for 3-4 months before the turntable quit turning. I found on other websites owners who experienced the same problem. Until now, i thought highly of Kenmore but i am rethinking my opinion.
Summary: took it out of the box, put it into the shelf,plugged in started up and front plastic cover fell off! WTF!! I guess the 2 sided sticky tape that is suppose to hold it on wasn't quite so sticky! Put it back into place, we'll see if it stays there now!
Summary: I first reviewed this after a poor experience with a defective one I had purchased, and was so discouraged by the door opening button, that I gave it one star (poor). The button seems to work OK now. Although it stays in when I push it to open the door, it pops back out when the door is closed--so it's actually not a problem. The microwave does its job as expected.
Summary: This item worked great for almost 3 months. Stopped heating part way through cycle but continued to run till end of event. Food half warm. Troubleshooting section of manual, Worthless. No info. about simular problem. Pulled plug let it cool and its ok. Troubleshooting says nothing about resetting oven or location of internal fuse. Easter Sunday, family get together, it again half cooked food could not reset after pulling plug. Wife mad ! Could not cook or warm up dinner.
Summary: Profoundly disappointing. Have only had it a few weeks and yesterday it stopped working in middle of heating up several items for dinner. Tonight it randomly started working again. Not sure if we just got a lemon, as we have had success with other Kenmore items, but this was a complete disappointment.
