Summary: Received the item promptly. Set it up and tried to heat up water for 2 minutes. Nothing - water still same temp. Had to try three times to get water to heat up until finally hot. Thought maybe just needed warming up. Tried again a little later.
Summary: Within 2 days of setting this microwave up, the door refused to open. This was not related to the child lock as I tried engaging and then disengaging the lock. The door had to be forced open. It worked properly for another 12 hours or so and then the door jammed again.
Summary: The oven appeared to be well made with many neat features, but it never worked as well as an inexpensive 11 year old Sears model it replaced. We returned it when it began arcing under the turntable, actually beginning to burn the driveshaft for the turntable.
1 year 6 months and our 2nd Sharp Convection Microwave Dies

Summary: We bought a Sharp Convection Microwave several years ago and one of its flimsy plastic door latches broke. We found out the warranty didn't cover it (cosmetic item) and it would cost almost as much as a new one to fix it.
