Poorly made, and rusting internally after 2 years

geekx3, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: This microwave is not even 3 years old and it is already rusting in various places on the inside, and the paint is bubbling. I have never seen a microwave do this before! Is it even safe for exposed steel to be exposed on the inside? Very poorly made. The plastic over the controls is coming loose and has air pockets underneath. It is heating foods just fine, at least so far. My mother still has her Amana from the early 70's and is looking and running great.

Look for a different microwave, not this one!

J. Mathews, Amazon

  • Summary: I have not been happy with this microwave. I bought it 9 months ago and it has quit working. It doesn't heat anymore. Previous had a problem with it groaning or screaming when I used it. No, I don't put it through a lot and I have never had a microwave quit on me before, even after years of use. The good news is that I called the service number in the user guide and they are refunding my money. Glad I kept the receipt! However, I will not buy this brand again.

Price too high

  • Summary: So far this is a great microwave. Door is a little cheaply made. Other than that it's a nice machine. After doing a little research, I found I could get this microwave for half the cost at bed bath and beyond. Still this is a nice little microwave.

Not worth it

Zetec, Amazon
28 July 2014
  • Summary: Used this very lightly, just to heat coffee and the occasional frozen dinners. Worked fine for 16 months, and then died inexplicably. Cannot find customer care number, but I believe the repairs would cost almost as much as I paid originally to purchase it. Don't waster your money, purchase better brands that would give at least a few years of service.

BEEP! This microwave is loud

Eugene F. Leafty III, Amazon
3 June 2014
  • Summary: Unfortunately this microwave doesn't have a way to disable the beeper or turn down its volume like my old microwave did. That meant the piezo (beeper) had to go. It's pretty easy. Four torx pinhead screws and two phillips screws to remove the top/side cover. One phillips screw to remove the button panel. Four phillips screws to remove the circuit board on the button panel. The piezo (beeper) uses a through hole connection, which is why the circuit board must be remove.

Worked fine for 5 months but then stopped.

Kathleen J. Potvin, Amazon
22 April 2014
  • Summary: We purchased this last October and had no complaints until today. It has stopped working TOTALLY. There is no power at all and nothing will light up. I think that an appliance purchase should work for at least a year, if not many years. Don't they come with some kind of year warranty?

It takes some getting used too !

Nick, Meijer
15 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I hate how it has a bell that rings until you get your food out after cooking . If I am on the phone or someone comes to the door it is obnoxious . Same when I am ill . It has no minute button and the quick keys are confusing and not step savors . For example coffee that could be a minute key takes pressing coffee , how many cups then start . Same with pizza it takes a while to learn and is not intuitive .
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Cooks Food Even, Does The Job, Easy To Clean, Easy To Install, Powerful, Simple Display
  • Cons: Bell Until You Get Food, Confusing Display, Noisy, Short Cord, Small Capacity, Too Many Inputs Needed

  • Summary: It was a perfect microwave up until the day when it suddenly stopped heating things up. This microwave only lasted 16 months so I definitely will not be buying this brand again in the future.

Terry R. Altman, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this unit for my bar area downstairs. It was intended to be used for movie popcorn, and snacks for guests. Worked a total of 4 times and now it just makes noise spins but heats nothing. Don't waste you money on this one.
