Summary: Came to amazon shopping for a replacement for this exact model, and felt compelled to leave a review. Had this microwave for 3 years when it stopped working. Bought this exact model again because we wanted easy installation.
Summary: Just received the package from UPS. Notice I said package and NOT box, because there is no box! It arrived in a top and bottom cardboard trays shrink wrapped together and in foam trays. Sides are unprotected. Needless to say the oven has a large dent on the bottom edge.
Excerpt: The previous owners of my home had left a large older microwave that they used on the counter. I knew there was limited counter space and the old microwave took up way too much of it. So I decided to go with an over the stove model to give myself the most counter space possible.
Summary: I got this oven over a year and the door handle broke. Called Maytag support for parts they told me they only sell the entire door assembly to the cost of $160 plus shipping!!! A brand New Samsung Microwave unit comparable to this model cost only for $180.00.
Summary: This microwave is very sturdy. The door sounds solid when closed and the oven is working well. When it arrived there was no visible damage to the packaging but significant denting of the back left outside of the cabinet.
Summary: I've had this installed for about 6 weeks. It is easy to use and has plenty of power. I this the platter is a bit small but it has not been an issue yet. The venting and lighting are nice features.
Summary: Nice looking microwave ordered 1 installed it in about 30min. So far very happy with unit. Ups dropped kicked unit had a dent where no one can see but should be rapped better. This unit arrived it looked as if ups drug it around warehouse
