Good microwave for the money, easy Install
Posted by: JimCinSC from: Greenville, SC on
This is not a signature series frigidaire, so it looks a little different. Had no trouble installing into the overhead space above the stove. Great capture screws included. Has plenty of power to heat and defrost. The completion beeper is ungodly loud though. I can hear it outside in the backyard. Other than that, I good all around unit and the price can't be beat.

Excellent basic over the range microwave
Posted by: TMcNeil from: Millbury, MA on
This Frigidaire microwave easily meets all my needs. I was looking to free up some counter space and replace an outdated range hood and get something that matched my other Frigidaire appliances at the same time.
In general use, all of the basic features you would expect are there. Turntable, settings for Defrost, Popcorn, and reheat, as well as a timer function. The timer is my only gripe at this point. You can either use the microwave to heat something or the timer, but not both at the same time. I like to set the timer for the main meal cooking in the stove while cooking or reheating things in the microwave. Unfortunately, it cannot do both. It's a $20 fix, though, to just pick up a little kitchen timer, so I'm not going to sweat it.
Both the light and exhaust functions work really well. I was a little worried at first looking at the bottom of the microwave that it would perform since it looked a bit basic and cheap, but it has been pulling the smoke and smell out of the air so I can't complain. Once it has the filters in, it lost that cheap look as well.
Other than this, the microwave looks and performs great. We're using internal venting (this is one of the few models we found that had this), so installation was extremely easy.

Great over the range microwave
Posted by: tejas123 from: fort worth, tx on
We purchased this unit after remodeling our kitchen. It looks great and has been easy to clean inside and out. Good lighting and although it doesn't have al lot of fancy buttons it has the basics. It will beep when the food is done and if you forget you have food in there after a little while it will beep again reminding you that you haven't taken it out. The bottom has the grease catchers which I put in the dishwasher and cleans them great. It's very spacious in the inside which we were wanting a bigger one with the wire rack but the agent at Best Buy told us he personally had one and had the wire rack in his cabinet plus they are more expensive and he mention that they use more light because of the wire rack taking up some radiation. Good product ok price.

Worked till Warranty expired
Posted by: Publknme from: Sacramento on
Purchased this as well as 3 other appliances ( 2 of which frigidaire) 1 year and 1 month ago. The Microwave completely stopped working Last night 1 month after warranty expired. Makes a humming sound after cooking or any other cycle stops, continues to hum unless door is left open. Contacted frigidaire and due to it being out of warranty (by only amonth) nothing they would do nor should they. spent almost $500.00 with installation and will be replacing this TODAY with a Samsung.
Never liked the fan (noisy and never really worked) surface lighting is ajoke.
Very Very disappointing.

Nice Basic Microhood
Posted by: SEIShopper from: Greater Cincinnati, OH on
This is a nice basic microhood without a lot of bells and whistles. I had to replace a former Frigidaire microhood that lasted for 12 good long years and wanted to try to stick with a brand I had prior experience with. My only real problem with it was the weight. It was much too heavy for my kitchen cabinets and wall. It was a good 20 pounds heavier than any of the other over the range microwaves we looked at (everything else was out of stock due to the end of the year blowout sale). We had to take it down and return it before it pulled the cabinet from the wall. We will be ordering a lighter replacement and waiting a week for it to be delivered.

Perfect for a white kitchen
Posted by: KnowsValue from: Littleton on
So far its a great microwave for the money...very large turntable so plenty of room for the plate...love the settings, very easy and simple. The loud beeper is awesome...i can be somewhere else in the house and still hear it when it goes off.
My only complaints are that the fans are towards the back of the microwave and since i usually use the front burner some condensation gets on the front of the micro ...my only other complaint is that the door is a little hard to shut and open. This didn't effect my rating though because overall its very worth the price.

Easy to Use
Posted by: Skylark89 from: Crystal Lake on
Microwave runs as it should. Has convenient features of most other microwaves. My first of two complaints is that it lets out 3 very loud beeps when done heating. All my previous microwaves seemed a bit quiter. There doesn't seem to be a way to lower the sound by half or turn it off completely. Though it seems petty, it gets annoying. When opening the door after the first beep it will continue to beep as if you didn't know it was done while standing there with the door open. Others who have been over have commented on it as well. The other complaint I have is how loud the door closes. It sounds and feels like closing the door on a meat locker. Not a big issue during the day but at night when people are sleeping it's loud. Overall, it's a good and basic microwave and I would recommend it to someone looking for one.

Great Overall Product
Posted by: Kingdomgirls from: on
This microwave is awesome. I truly have almost have no complaints but it beeps three times after then time is up. It doesn't matter if you take the item out or not if it cooks the full allotted time you are going to get three loud beeps afterwards. Other than that this is a great product that I would recommend.

Fantastic Microwave/Easy Install
Posted by: Nickname5897 from: on
We bought this microwave to complete our stainless steel upgrades. It fit perfectly above the stove. The installation was super easy, just make sure to measure 5 times before drilling the holes for it. My only real complaint about the microwave itself is the timer beeps at the end of cooking is a bit longer than I'm used to.
