Worthless piece of junk

RogerM, reviews.lowes.com
8 February 2012
  • Summary: Purchased this microwave in December 2010. Since then magnatron and 2 other parts heve been both replaced 2 times. Both times we were without use for 3 weeks as parts required ordering and required 2 service trips each time. It is now making excessive noises and stops. Most likely magatron again.
  • Cons: Low quality, Not durable, slow repair

  • Summary: We had a little issue with this microwave at first, as some of the keys did not work. Unfurtunately, we installed it ourself and did not check before we put it in. However, Lowes made everything okay. They sent two of there guys over to take it out and they installed a new one.

Buyer Beware

Brandi, reviews.lowes.com
31 December 2011
  • Summary: I guess we were lucky that our microwave lasted 24 months. It sounds like others have had to replace their microwaves in just over one year. I am from the school of thought that when you buy something you expect it to last for a few years.
  • Cons: Low quality, Not durable, short life span

ONLY BUY IF YOU ONLY NEED IT FOR ABOUT ONE YEAR

Jan, reviews.lowes.com
7 December 2011
  • Summary: Bought brand new, worked fine for a little over a year - four months after one year warranty expired, so did the microwave. As posted in other reviews, everything works fine except it doesn't heat/cook. Fan works, light works, turntable turns, but no microwaves.
  • Cons: Low quality, Not durable

Great Looking

WFM, reviews.lowes.com
2 December 2011
  • Summary: Front appearance on the stainless model is very good. Solid build. Installation went very good. Performance? Whirlpool needs to re-engineer lighting underneath to the front corners - two 40 watt bulbs instead of the single 40 watt in rear.
  • Pros: High quality

User Review

  • Summary: Bought this unit little over 2 years ago and it worked fine until last month. Nothing works, not even the light. "F2" code appeared and instruction manual says to call for service. $79 later, the serviceman says he'll have to replace a part for over $150 and even that may not fix the problem!
  • Pros: features, look
  • Cons: Low quality

Disapointing - don't upgrade with a whirlpool

Didn't even last a week

Luhmster, reviews.lowes.com

  • Summary: My old microwave died after 14 years, and I found this one at my local Lowes store. It had all the features I wanted, and I was very excited to start using it. At first it was great - I took a filet mignon out of the freezer and it defrosted perfectly. It was not cooked on the outside at all.
