    Worst microwave in terms of installtion

    Posted

    Being handy with installing such appliances, I decided to install this one myself, and had worst experience ever. The right side nut for the top mounting bolt is attached to the microwave frame, as it should be, but the left nut is attached to the thin sheet metal cover. May be this was due to fact that the heavy parts like magnetron are on the right side of the microwave. I was using the power drill at the lowest torque setting, but it still ripped the nut clear off the sheet metal cover. The nut wasn't even spot welded to the cover but attached with some sort of a clip. I was staring at the hole for a while, and decided that the only option I have is to use a sleeve nut. So, purchased a 1/4" x 1-1/4" bolt and and the same size sleeve nut with a Philips head. Attached the bolt from inside the cover (yes, I had to remove the top cover on my brand new microwave that I haven't even used yet) with an ordinary 1/4" nut from the outside. Then set the microwave in place on the wall bracket and used the sleeve nut from inside the top cabinet to catch the bolt that was sticking out on the top of the microwave. Managed to tighten the sleeve nut to hold the microwave in place. Because of the very reason that the left nut (or bolt in my case) is attached to the thin sheet metal, instead of the frame, the more you tighten the bolt (or the sleeve nut in my case), the cover simply bulges at the top under the top cabinet. So, I could never level the microwave; it is still slopping to the left, and I didn't want push my luck further by trying to level the microwave (yes I checked the level on the the wall bracket). The supplied bolts are very fine threaded which makes it easy to cross thread them, especially when you're supporting the entire microwave load and trying to drive the bolt from inside the top cabinet. Wall bracket is even worse; it is as thin as it could be; the clips that hold the microwave from the bottom rear easily bend. Took a while to get used to the feather touch; you have to hit it at the right spot. Door was squeaking; this was the simplest to fix that required little bit of lube. I'm hoping to see the functioning of the microwave might compensate for the worst installation experience I had.

    ventilation fan feature does not work at all

    Great looking and great features. I couldn't believe that the slim fry feature really made "real" french Fries and they were so good. But, I will have the 3rd replacement one delivered and installed and I am so hoping that this time the Ventilation fan feature will work. They claim that it is a powerful ventilation system that quickly and quietly eliminates steam, fumes and odors and that it is nearly silent. IT DOES NOT WORK AT ALL IT DOES NOT HAVE ANY "SUCTION" AND IT IS EXTREMELY LOUD. I showed the installers how bad it is by boiling water and the steam from the pan of water was so bad on the front of the microwave that it had drops of water running down the front of the microwave and dripping onto my new ceramic cook top stove. It is supppose to have a charcoal filter that has to be changed ever 6 to 12 months if the ventilation system is vented back into the room. There is no charcoal filter. With such a serious problem you would think Samsung would know about this by now. Has anyone else out there had this problem?

    Took a bit of getting used to

    So right out of the box we had issues. We installed this microwave ourselves. Had to cut a small hole in the adjacent cabinet because of our kitchens' design. After all that trouble it did not cook as a microwave but it would work as a convection oven. The Best Buy store wanted us to uninstall it and bring it to the store for an exchange which was unacceptable to me given the work that it took to get it on the wall. Fortunately Samsung took care of the issue for us and sent a repair person who was just fine. It was a simple repair of some wires that were not soldered correctly. It was frustrating but in the end my problem was taken care of. At first I was a bit frustrated by the booklet and chart that comes with the microwave for every different scenario of pre-prepared and reheated food however we do not do much of this. It took me awhile to just figure out how to manually use all the different settings. It works great as a microwave it works fine as a convection oven I am not 100% sold on the slim fry option as I do not feel that my frozen fried items are coming out crunchy and cooked thoroughly. There is definitely a learning curve with this microwave which I did not expect

    Terrible Samsung Microwave

    Posted
    2Piece

    The absolute worst company support and warranty service I have ever dealt with bar none. I purchased and installed the microwave on 12/26/15. Went to put something in microwave on 5/15/2016, set time pushed start, it made a little pop sound and has not worked since. Called warranty that same day, they set up info to have repair person call me. They called on 5/16/2016 and set up a date a week and half later on 5/25/2016. I called repair person on 5/23/2016 to verify 5/25 appointment, no answer, left message on machine. Get a call back today 5/27/2016 saying they need to move repair visit to 6/3/2016. That will be 3 full weeks before anyone one comes to look at it and I live in a urban area. Think about it, do you have enough spare time to just wait around for a service tech to show up 3 weeks later? I would honestly give Samsung a negative star if I could for the way this warranty claim has been handled!

    Ventilation system is a joke

    If you do not need the ventilation system then the rest of the features on this microwave are really nice but I need a Good ventilation system because I do so much cooking and canning. Samsung states that the underside of the over-the-range microwave features a powerful ventilation system that quickly and quietly eliminates steam, fumes and orders from the kitchen. The nearly silent system clears the air with 300 cubic feet per minute of turbo ventilation. What a joke. I am on my 3rd microwave because of this problem and best buy has told me that this is just a problem with this microwave. But, they will not report it to samsung . How stupid. They offered me a half off refund for all my trouble but as I keep checking with them as to when this is going to happen and I keep telling them that until the credit hits my credit card account they have not refunded me the promised credit. This ventilation system is loud and it sucks nothing. If you boil water steam collects on the front of the microwave and turns into droplets than run down the front of the door.

    Beast!

    Seeing the price point on this microwave will and should scary away most people when they are shopping for a new unit, but know you'll get every penny from your purchase; it's pretty much a second oven! There are so many (almost too many) cooking abilities on this microwave, but again at this price point, you should get every bell and whistle. Also, it's HUGE inside! So far, I'm super happy with the unit and it couples nicely with our new Samsung range. If I had to complain about something, it would be the layout of the user manual. I'm not kidding when I say this thing comes with massive amount of cook options and learning them is kind of a pain. Some sort of one page cheat sheet would be helpful because the options are only good if you know how to use them and in the throws of cooking, who has time to stop and read through a 75 page manual to see how to cook something? Good problem to have I guess and the only complaint I can think of. All things considered, this is a great microwave/second oven.

    Works well but not the easiest to operate.

    It works well, does take longer to cook than the GE I replaced, does not seem to have the power but the wattage rating is the same. Maybe it is because of all the convection, etc... features. User interface is not the easiest to get to know as you only have one line of text at a time, there is a lot of guessing and scrolling through menus. There is an endless list of cooking option settings and it I want to do something other than standard time cooking, I have to refer the the manual or quick card to be able to navigate to correct setting. I have not used a lot of the extra bells and whistles though so it really has not been an issue but if the interface was a bit more intuitive I probably would use more of the features. The salesman at the store was great but really wish that the appliances would be plugged in so you could play before you buy. So, overall it works good, it looks nice, and mounts easily. I got it at a very good open box price so I am very pleased that I was in the right place at the right time.

    Awesome microwave.

    Got it on sale for $399.99. Works well for microwave use and looks good with my stainless steel dishwasher, rice cooker, ice maker stove and refrigerator. Installation was easy considering the mounting bracket provided was identical to my old microwave mounting bracket so I didn't need to measure and mount the new one. The hooks on the previous mount matched up perfect;y and the microwave literally went and hooked right into place and the top mount screws also matched up to the holes in the cabinet above so I didn't needed to drill holes and it bolted right into place. Just make know the size of the microwave you are replacing and make sure the one your buying is the same and installation should be a breeze . Haven't tried out the convection part yet but it seems as if you can bake in your microwave with it. The vent fan works well and stove lights provide sufficient lighting to view what ever your cooking. Very satisfied with purchase but only time will tell the durability of this microwave. Hopefully it lasts for many years since I am content with everything this microwave provides.
