    Disappointed

    Posted
    greenfinger

    I bought the first microwave oven, took it home, spent a good amount of time installing it, put a glass of water in the oven, turned it on and waited over a minute and saw the water wasn't starting to boil. The lights came, on, table turned and it made all the right noises, but it just didn't work. I took it back to the store and they exchanged it for another one. I installed it and it worked just great. It used to warm up my coffe in 36 seconds, now just a couple of weeks later, its already taking over a minute to do the same thing. Sometimes its fast (not very often) and most of the time it is just plain slow now. I bought this oven as it was almost half the price of similar ovens, and I wanted the stainless look. Now I am afraid I'm going to have to take it down again and return it once again.

    DO NOT BUY!!

    I bought this microwave 14 months ago. It has suddenly stopped heating. I called the manufacturer and they informed me the heating element is still under warranty and they gave me the number of a local company to repair it. However the labor is not covered so basically it will cost me nearly $200 for labor and repair, which is the same price I paid for the microwave. I called and asked goldstar if they could mail the part to me directly and my husband will try to repair it and they told me no! Needless are now having to buy a new microwave but I can promise it will not be a Goldstar!

    Spent plenty of time installing the microwave including a new electrical outlet for it and vent work going through my attic and roof only to try it out fir the first time on Christmas Eve, mind you, and it did not cook!!! I tried all cooking levels, read the very uninformative troubleshooting guide, and to no avail the microwave did not cook. Everything appears to work normally....lights, sound, turntable turns, but again it wouldn't cook. It was very, very disappointing as we really needed for our Christmas cooking and rehating and the thing failed on the first try.

    What's not to like about the MV1610?

    Full-featured and full-size oven has straight, clean lines and is more attractive and a full inch less deep and less high than its competition. High and low light levels and fan speeds. Handsome and logical keypad allows timed cooking without interrupting or resetting timer. Powerfull, even cooking and easy to clean interior. Available w/o any decorative stainless steel trim. Would prefer it even if it cost MORE than other models/brands.

    Everything seemed great for just about 10 months. Then out of the blue it would not heat. I don't want to have it fixed because I wouldn't want to go through this Wish I had spent a bit more the 1st time. Now will have to uninstall, reinstall and waste the money spent on the goldstar. Wish I had seen other reviews before this purchase. You get what you pay for with this one... or maybe less." its bad bad

    Absolute junk

    Goldstar is the absolute worst brand you can purchase. We purchased two Goldstar OTR mircrowaves. One had to be replaced after just two years and the other had to have $100 worth of work after a month of use. Please consider another brand for a bit more money. It is well worth it.

    WORST MICROWAVE EVER

    Just after one year microwave stopped heating. It worked the the AM, came home in the PM and guess what! ITS BROKE. Don't both calling Goldstar. You will get a run around, they will tell you to call a certain service center, and they will charge you a 100.00 just to come look at it. WHAT A JOKE. DON'T LOSE TIME OVER THIS PRODUCT...

    Just after one year unit stopped heating. Called service center, and they said it was probably the magnatron which they warrantied, but it would cost me 60.00 to fix it. The unit only cost me 130.00. great deal, but yopu get what you pay for. I think it is a big gamble. If you like to gamble buy this model.

    We had this microwave for a year before it finally quit working. Prior to that it would not heat food consistently: meaning that we could heat a slice of pizza on one minute one day and need three minutes the next day to get it the same temperature.

    Don't waste your money

    I agree with the other reviewer. My Goldstar went out without warning just after one year. Looked behind the keypad panel and saw charred wires which had burnt through. Considered getting it repaired, but decided that I'd sleep easier with a different brand.

    We've been using this microwave for about a year with no problems. I know all of the other reviews have had bad problems, but we have not faced them. Heats fine (and consistently) and everything still works fine.

    I bought this microwave not too long ago and love it. It was super easy to install (did it all by myself), it has great features, and really cooks great. The price was great, too!
