Sharp is the best - UPS not so much

Mark A. Kaminski, Amazon
7 November 2013
  • Summary: Gave it 5 stars because I already had one and needed to get another. First one was great so the easiest replacement made sense to get the same model and keep the same bracket. Unfortunately UPS (as per usual) mishandled it so badly the styrofoam protection was crushed and the metal sides were literally dented so back it went.

Dangerous - Do Not Buy

Average Guy, Amazon
20 February 2013
  • Summary: This microwave is dangerous. A small plastic switch in the bottom door closure monitors the on/off function. In our case, this switch "malfunctioned," and the microwave turned ON when the door was opened. Very scary that a 1000W microwave's safety is controlled by a small plastic piece. I strongly suggest that you not buy this microwave. Should be zero stars.

design flawed product

rsmith, Amazon
7 January 2013
  • Summary: Avoid this product. The pushbutton melted after only a month of regular use. When the technician came to repair it, he said that he saw this problem frequently with this design. He said that units with a handle do not have this problem. Despite being careful, it has happened again. This time it is beyond the warranty & Sharp doesn't care.

8 years old and still great

P. Clark "Proud Granny", Amazon
14 November 2011
  • Summary: After reading the specs, my husband measured the height before installing. We replaced the cabinet over the stove to a shorter cabinet (we were remodelling the kitchen), so we have none of the problems with the heat on the latching mechanism other people mentioned. I love all of the features on this microwave (especially the sensor cooking), it was easy to install, and after 8 years my only complaint is that the LED readout has completely burned out, so my cooking is now...

Pure crap!!!

Heather L Blakeman, Amazon
29 July 2011
  • Summary: This microwave was very hard to install, and I am pretty handy. Within a month the numbers stopped lighting up and some of the touch buttons (such as defrost button) stopped working. Within another month the push button door latch stopped functioning and we had to take it off, now we have to use a screwdriver to pop the door open. The stainless steel started to turn brownish and doesn't come off.

It doesn't get better this

Julie, Amazon
2 March 2011
  • Summary: Found this microwave on Amazon and on sale! It is beautiful and everyone who comes into my kitchen comments on it. Best of all it works perfectly and can do anything you need to do. The inside is big enough to make a very large entree, and having the buttons inside cuts down on daily cleaning. I have yet to be disappointed in any way.

  • Summary: It looks lovely in our stainless steel kitchen, but after only 3 years of use, it has problems. Now the start button doesn't work, but the microwave is on nonstop whenever the door is closed. Started very suddenly. Will have to get it serviced. Great defrost, potato, popcorn functions.
