Summary: It's too bad that this microwave gets such poor reviews. I had it in my old house, and I'd really like to get another one for my new house. But even now I'm a bit hesitant. I see that a lot of people have problems, but luckily, I had none. I love the looks of the microwave, and I love the LCD touch controls. I also love the sensor cooking, especially with baked potatoes and corn on the cob. Perhaps my only complaint is that the exhaust fan is loud.
Summary: My experience is much better than most. We purchased this unit in September 2006, it is still working strong after seven years. We use it all the time as a microwave oven. Would not recommend it as a convection oven, it is very slow.
Summary: we got this microwave as part of an appliance package when we bought our newly constructed home. Within the first two years we had to have major repairs, the magnetron cracked. Now 2 years later, we come home from vacation and we are getting the F7 error code. Needs a new computer board. This is a piece of junk. We also have the matching whirlpool gold dishwasher, which I am really disappointed in as well. This is our dream home, but the appliances are a nightmare.
Summary: The control panel has a mind of it's own. It goes from one display to another without me doing anything. Whirlpool told me that the cost of the control panel is about half of what this unit costs. I would NOT recommend buying this microwave!!!
Summary: We have had the same problems as another reviewer. -->>> The Whole Right side of electrical panel is Paralyzed !!!--<<< -!!! Purchased this microwave at first I loved it !!!- This product is very poorly built. The bottom of the door of the unit is plastic and if you cook at all it will crack ->>> from the heat from the stove below the unit.!!!
Summary: This microwave is garbage. We have had many problems with it, fought with the warrenty center, they finally replaced it and it is not working again. Microwave ovens should last longer than just a couple years. Whirlpool you need to do something about this. You know this isnt just a random problem. You have produced a inferior product and you need to do something about it. This microwave costs $1000.00. This isnt a walmart throw away item. YOU NEED TO RECALL THIS ITEM!
Summary: I purchased the GH7208XRS-1 model in 2007 and My wife and I were glad we got the insurance most people tell you not to get causing it's a rip off, but have gotten our money's worth with the insurance (as we got the microwave replace twice, and repaired once), not so with the microwave. If you feel like considering it "Art" then by all means go get it since that is what most art does, just set there.
