Serious design flaw will cause failure in 1-2 years

Summary: Others have posted this, but I'll add. These have an important design defect: the internal flange on which the safety switches are attached, and into which the door locks engage, is not strong enough not to flex under the (significant) pressure of the opening and closing of the door. Over time (likely about a month after your warranty expires), this flange will bend enough that the oven stops working, because one or more of the safety switches no longer engages.

Summary: Bought this unit 8/2012. It lasted until 12/2014. 28 months doesn't cut it. Over time, both the button to open the door and the latches on the door required increasing force to operate them. Eventually, the latches on the door would no longer trip the safety switch that prevents the microwave from operating while the door is open. So the microwave just quit working.
