I would pass on this model

Comments about Frigidaire 1.6 Cu. Ft. Over-The-Range Microwave - Stainless Steel:
I found it interesting that when I was talking to the management staff at my new and newly built apartment complex, I mentioned that I really do like the place except for... and they both said "the microwave" and I said "Yes!". It seems to cook fine but the door is difficult to open/close (major issue for her because of being a new mother) and the volume and length of the alarm when the food is done. Why does it need to beep loudly three times and then doesn't shut off when the door is opened? Because naturally the microwave won't operate when the door is opened (like it shouldn't)... light goes off when the door is closed (like it should)... why doesn't the alarm shut off?? Frustrating for me because I heat up my cats refrigerated raw food quickly (around 6 seconds) and then it beeps as if I've left the building. Honestly, I've wanted to hit it on several occasions. I would change my mind about this if there was/is an option for changing the alarm. And although I've only been using this for four months... it works fine otherwise.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I've had cheap counter top microwave that have lasted over ten years. I've had this thing less than five years. Along with not being able to cook and use the timer, it continued to run when the door was closed and started to smoke and shut itself off. It came back on after some time and continued to run if you closed the door. It finally stopped but now it doesn't heat anything up. I'm going back to cheap counter tops.
Powerful, but simple features
from Washington, DC
Heats things up well. Had to get it serviced within a year of manufacturing because it shorted out a fuse - but haven't had issues with it since. The only "problem" is when you are running the timer on the microwave - you can't also microwave something. Weird. It isn't a big deal, since we have other timers. But it's a little inconvenient.

This microwave came preinstalled in our new house. It has a very annoying beep when it finishes cooking. It keeps beeping every minute until you remove the food. The external light is dim and does little to brighten the cooking surface of your stove. The exhaust fan is loud. It cooks food unevenly. We replaced this after two months of use. Save yourself unnecessary expense and headache, do not buy this microwave.
Works really well, easy to use
from Boynton Beach, FL, United States
I like this microwave a lot!! It works well, meaning it heats up items really quickly. It's really easy to use too. The only change I would make is the chime; when it's done cooking, it makes 3 long chimes... and they're loud. Otherwise, it's great! I'm very happy with it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Love the size, functions, and appearance!

Love my new microwave!
from Hampton Bays, New York, United States
I bought this for our beach house and I love the way it works! It has all the features I wanted--sleek stainless steel look, powerful microwave, turntable, timer, two levels of lighting and powerful exhaust fan.
Cheaper to replace than to repair
from Kentwood, MI
I bought this to replace the same make/model that malfunctioned out of warranty. The control panel started acting up (microwave turned on when the door was closed, and would not turn off). Would you believe that it would have cost almost as much to order a new control panel (to install myself) as it did to purchase a new one? Now I have a microwave in the "boneyard" to use for replacement parts.
Good value but rough open and close
from Miami, FL, United States
I'm happy with all the functionality of this microwave however it makes a lot of noise when it is opened and closed . It also makes an annoying noise when the timer is done and food is ready .
