Summary: Worked fine until one day it just decided to break. Siezes upon starting the microwave and spits sparks. I was expecting way more than 3 years out of the unit. Repairs cost as much as a replacement
This microwave worked great, until right after the warrantee was expired

Summary: This microwave worked great, until right after the warrantee was expired. Now, our range and microwave both get A LOT of use, as we have five children. I often used the microwave to steam veggies while I used the oven and/or range to cook the rest of our meals, but I always used the fan on high,...
Summary: This microwave was in my house when I bought it. The previous owners had installed it less than a year before putting the house on the market. They had remodeled the kitchen themselves, and did a very amateur job.
Summary: I purchased a whirlpool microwave model# WMH1163XVG-1 a few years ago when we remodeled our kitchen... The microwave works great but then the cheap plastic door started to crack. Then the handle completely came off.
Summary: We bought our house in Nov 2011 and it came with this microwave. Just last month it stopped heating anything, and I figured this was probably 12 years old like the house. However, when I was looking for the model number to research solutions I saw "Manufactured Jan 2011" and thought "that's odd" it...
Stopped heating just after warranty expired! Whirlpool Customer Svc is terrible!

Summary: My parents bought this and used it for making popcorn, heating water and that's about it - nothing heavy duty in other words! The microwave stopped heating just after 1 year and of course the warranty is only 1 year!
Summary: Not sure about the rest of you, but I expect my brand new microwave to last more than 2.5 years? We are a small family (4) and use the microwave daily (maybe slightly less) - we are not "tough" on appliances. This microwave worked perfectly well for 2.5 years and then just stopped heating.
Summary: Microwave works but will not heat food. Magnetron has failed and only has a 1 year warranty even though most other ones have a 5 or 10 year magnetron warranty. Seems like Whirlpool knew this was a POS so thats why warranty is so short. Will not EVER buy whirlpool again. LG and GE is where it's at!!
Summary: This microwave came installed with my new home last May 2011. I requested white, Whirlpool since that is what I had owned with my previous counter top microwave. This microwave looks great and has met all my needs to date.
