Replaced awesome previous microwave of 14 years with a larger and improved model. Already using more often with even better results.
Based on reviews - I purchased this microwave. I've never written a review before; however, very unhappy with this product. I've always had Kenmore appliances, and have not been disappointed. As stated in another review the beep is annoying. Which wasn't a bit deal. Do not like the sensor cooking items. Burnt popcorn, didn't completely cook bacon. Does okay on beverages. Overall, just wished I'd gone with a less expensive Kenmore Microwave. Would have been happier!
I've only had this microwave in use for 2 1/2 months and it already has a problem. The light and internal fan won't shut off so it sounds like its constantly cooking and the light gets very hot. I had to unplug it. Based on some internet sleuthing, it appears to possibly have something to do with a door switch. Unbelievable that something so new would already be having a problem like this. Thankfully it's under warranty, but now I have to get in touch with them and find out what to do.
It replaced a Kenmore that I had 26yrs. This one has better interior design for more even cooking and many features that my old one did not have. Very happy with it.
Microwave has been great until it started tripping the breaker. $100 service call, parts will be just as much as a new one. It's not even four years old. Was hoping a nicer unit like this would last longer than that. If you buy, get the extended warranty!
This unit is as loud as microwaves from the '80s. And, it cooks EXTREMELY slowly. Definitely do not try to cook more than one thing... Like one pea at a time.
I purchased this product as the finishing touch with all the other Kenmore appliances I purchased after a kitchen remodel.
Not even 6 months after I purchased it, the main PCB board went out and took Sear’s more than a month to repair. (You never know how much you appreciate a microwave until you don’t have one)
Well, it was finally repaired in the beginning of January, 2018. It is now March 28th, not even 4 months after it had JUST been repaired and I had to call Sear’s again and schedule another appointment. Same issue as the first time.
My biggest piece of advice is stay clear of this microwave. It’s expensive and so cheaply made its not worth the headache. My next appliances will not be Kenmore.
