I would have rated this 4 or 5 stars, if it wasn't for the constant beeping coming from inside the unit. It isn't real loud, as we didn't notice at first, but after a couple of days it was driving us both crazy. We thought that we had probably just received a defective unit, but upon receiving a replacement discovered that the new microwave has the same problem, although maybe not quite as loud. Not sure if we will be sending this one back also, or if we can somehow learn to live with it. SEARS, please fix this for future owners!!!
Stopped working after 10 minutes of cook time of a 15 minute program. Must have been a thermal fuse because it started working again after 5 minutes but had a burned electric smell. We returned it.
I've used the microwave for approximately 2 weeks and already the op panel start and end button have cracks. There is a quiet high pitched beep in synch with the clock. Each second that passes, there is a quiet beep. Seems like poor quality electronics. Turntable also makes occasional squeaking. I'm monitoring to see if the unit simply breaks. The unit is large enough to cook what I need but I give a poor rating for quality.
The botton for open the door not working good, but the microwave in general is fine.
Once again Kenmore fails... My stove, dryer & dishwasher all are kenmore & had issues but wanting my appliances to match, I purchased this microwave. It was loud, vibrated and had a bad electrical smell. I returned and ordered faberware from ****** and have no issues. KENMORE (which Sears makes) PRODUCTS ARE HORRIBLE!!!
