We go through microwave ovens about once every 4 years,(due to heavy usage) and this is the first 2.2 cu.ft. size we have purchased. (We usually purchase the 2.0 cu. ft .). We have had Panasonic (2), GE, Kenmore Elite and Kenmore units in the past. This is our second Kenmore Elite. This unit is quieter than the past ones, however, I wish that the time display was brighter. We purchased this unit on 4/14, and we have only had it for 5 days...too early to tell
Do not purchase. I'd give this microwave 0 stars if I could. We've owned it for a little over a year and it started malfunctioning. Basically it turns itself on without anyone touching it. It is a serious safety concern. It did this a few nights ago and no one was even in the kitchen and I heard it turn on. I shudder to think of what would happen if it would turn itself on when no one was home. Of course it's after the 1 year warranty and likely Sears will not stand behind it's product. I really think these microwave need to be recalled.
I have this product for 2 years. It starting arcing and sparking. No one on line can help you with an issue just to answer a question. $200 is a lot to pay for a product that just stops working@
Loved it until it just quit working...really expected more since it was Kenmore Elite. 18 months is not acceptable for its price.
Frequently starts up just by shutting the door with nothing set.
This microwave worked well for 1.5 years and then had issues with the circuit board. Just buy one from ******* that you don't expect to last too long. Nothing is built to last anymore. Kenmore seems like all the other junk now. Have fun with this dying product ******!
