Summary: We bought this model from an outside source. Broke down twice in 2 years. Tech said these overheat and shuts down. Lights and clock work, but it will not go on and heat. Junk!!! Last microwave we had, an Amana lasted 18 years. LP is having allot of circuitry and sensor problems.
Summary: The exhaust fan on this unit is NOT quiet, like the manufacturer claims. And it doesn't exhaust well. Other than that, the microwave works fine, it looks nice, cleans easily. I put the exhaust fan filter in the dishwasher every few months to clean it. Cleans in a snap that way.
Summary: Purchased an 1813SW (White) model few years ago from BB. I liked the duel the dual fan with charcoal filtering. First, the plastic handle broke after a year and a half. Fixed it, then a week later the keypad died and blew the thermal fuse.
Summary: Very happy with this purchase. Looks wonderful in my newly remodeled kitchen and it is so nice to have a microwave installed rather than taking up my counter space. Many functions, love that there is a removable shelf so more than one item, or larger items can be put in depending on your needs.
... I received didn't work at all and Amazon was great about replacing it

Summary: First one I received didn't work at all and Amazon was great about replacing it. Second one worked for 18 months, which is not too cool with a 12 month warrenty. I believe the problem is a door interlock switch which requires removing the unit for servicing.
Summary: I purchased this microwave 2 1/2 years ago. This is the quietest microwave I have ever owned. It also is the first above the stove mount microwave I have owned. Recently this microwave started turning the exhaust fan on when in use, even though I did not press the fan button.
