Summary: The seller was very honest and helpful with this item. This review in no way should reflect on him as items can be faulty. He offered to pay to have it repaired but I chose to return since I did not want a new item repaired. Thank you.
Summary: I've owned several of these units (build duplex homes) since 2010 (and purchased more in 2012/13) and haven't had a single problem with any of them. Most reviews here on Amazon are from 2011. My experience is that the complaints lodged here were resolved. If you can find one new, jump on it! Very attractive and extremely functional--most of our users never use their regular ovens after owning these...
Summary: This Samsung unit worked fine for two years but then shorted out. Fortunately I had bought a service agreement. I have been waiting one month for Samsung to deliver a needed part to the repair people. It may not be available, since, I think that this model is not being made anymore. If repair is not possible, I will get a new unit. I do not want Samsung. Do not buy this model!
Summary: Have had 4 combo convection/microwaves which do not have a good reputation for lasting any length of time. This one was the worst and Samsung service has been awful about the error code 3. They will not tell me the parts that are defective but sent those same 2 parts to a repair center nearby. I spent over well over 500 at a company in MO. No 10 year warranty as they claim on line. What a disgrace.

Summary: My Samsung microwave SMH9207ST is very similar to the ones now being reviewed on Amazon. The difference is my unit has the key pad installed across the bottom front of the door. My unit is installed over a OPEN counter top. It is NOT installed over a stove burner. There is NO steam etc from under the unit to cause the unit to fail --- that CANNOT be used for a excuse for my microwave keypad/control unit to fail after only aprox 23 months of use.
Summary: " It is a beautiful looking unit, but that's where everything stops. As one honest repairman put it, this has a design flaw that causes the interior housing to warp which in turn causes the metal to expand and detract into the convection fan blade and sounded like a jack hammer was in my unit." I copied this from another review but this is the same problem I have. I have had to have the thermostat replaced twice because it gets to hot and it burns out.
Thrilled but wish engineers would have taken things one step further!

Summary: First, this was the only microwave we could find that served as a convection over, toaster (browner = same thing) and microwave. We were looking for something that would let us ditch our counter top toaster/oven. It's now GONE!. The flaws: Convection Oven heating element makes a racket. According to user manual this is "normal and due to relay".
Looks Good - But Buyer Beware - Quality and Customer Service Issues!!

Summary: Going to try and make this short and sweet! Bought this over the range unit about 18mos ago and the unit was flawless - even loved the quick defrost feature (the unit knows how long to defrost based on weight of food) and we also use the light almost 24hrs (we leave it on for the dog when we are out on dark days) but this is where it goes south! Pros 1. Great Microwave when works (lots of features, cooks food very evenly, etc.) 2.
Summary: Love the microwave, and the ability to turn off the turn-table is an excellent feature. The directions, for the most part are easy enough to follow for an average DIY'r. However I will warn that if you plan to not use an outside vent, the directions are not very specific and hard to follow. The fan in the rear of the unit needs to be taken out and turned 90 degrees, which the directions tell you...
Pros: Durable, High quality, stylish, great exhaust, turn-table off., digital display
