This is a good microwave with many normal and advanced features. I have no complaints about the microwave except one. My previous GE allowed use of the cook function and timer feature (to time something else) at the same time. This Frigidare does not have that capability; one or the other. Other than that it is a good oven. What did bother me with the purchase is the lack of knowledge by the sales people and lack of information regarding the built-in nature of this microwave. The microwave ordered by itself has no ducting or air venting additions, so my question is what makes it a built-in? My previous microwave had additional air ducts to move the vented air from the exhaust back directly to the front air vent to exhaust in the room. What I found out later is that the additional built-in ducting come with the trim kit. No where in the literature I found nor that the salesman provided was that information available. I did not order the trim kit as the Frigidare face plate did not match the dimensions of the wall space I needed to cover. I expected the microwave to come ducted and the trim kit to have the center equipment and face plate. I ended up finding out through a knowledgeable source that the front bottom venting Frigidare is okay without ducting kit if the size of the wall hole is large enough and the front vent is close enough to the face plate to exhaust to the room. Since this is a non-convection oven the exhaust temperature is reasonably low. Problem solved, but delayed installation several days to find the information. I ended up using www.microtrim.com to order their trim kit which contained the mounting/centering guides and the face plate (I highly recommend www.microtrim.com). Bottom line this is a very good microwave, but be careful with the installation if you do not buy the trim kit.
I was the owner/user of this microwave and also am a residential contractor for whats it worth. The installation is seamless and the trim kit... though made of plastic, is thick enough to be okay. If trying to match colors, both the micro and trim are gloss black. Once you start it though, the motor engages in a deep, loud vibration that continues into a loud hum; more so than any other unit I have ever installed. I removed the micro and set it on something solid all by itself, the vibration increased and was clearly coming from the motor. Further inspection online revealed numerous complaints about the noise via Google. Sears took the return without complaint and great to work with.
I love the design and heating power of this microwave. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I bought this microwave in March of 2018. It burned itself up in January.
My open button isn’t working right only after 2 years ??
