Not difficult to install (I did it by myself)
Big capacity and high power
Great exhaust/ blower
Makes more noise than expected (when exhaust is on) but not a deal breaker
Bought this to replace non working fan/hood
It was an open item therefore some minor scratches and bends...
Overall good quality...
if it wasn’t for the noise will give the 5 stars
The men who installed the microwave were very professional. They completed the installation and explained the various features of the microwave. Very happy with the microwave. Just one issue - there is a scratch on the top - I did not notice it until a day or two later. Is there a way to repair it? Thank you for your help!
This is a fantastic microwave. The auto settings so a great job of sensing and heating just right!
2 cu feet! If you are a good DIY, we installed it ourselves.
Consumer Report had good rating. We thought the pricing was great for all the "drill down" setting to choose from. We recommend.
One of the best product I have purchase so far. I was looking for a microwave for a while and could not decide on one; finally I saw this and decided this is the one. I have no regrets so far, love it; bought it at the right time for a great price.
It was more difficult to get out the box than putting up , one thing you need is another person to lift onto the wall brackets.the controls are pretty straight forward and food reheats on top and underneath without the need to flip over the food.
A:AnswerThis unit can EITHER ventilate back into the kitchen OR ventilate out of the kitchen through a duct that you would need to install yourself. Out-of-the-box, the unit is set to ventilate back into the kitchen, but there are clear instructions on how to modify the top of the unit to have the ventilation go through your exhaust vent.
A:AnswerNot a problem. When door is shut, the edge is flush with the cabinet. When door is open, the hinge is on the inside and the edge of the door is approximately 1/2 inch from the left cabinet. The door opens to about 85 degrees, this restricts the handle on microwave from hitting left wall. This unit deeper and taller then my old one. Because the burners are gas, there is less clearance on cooking with tall pots on back burners. I new this when I made the purchase. Note- comes with a turntable and wire rack for two levels of cooking. Instructions say to not cook with wire rack if not using it.

A:AnswerYou can use an LED but the bulb can’t be longer than a standard incandescent 40W bulb (about 2.5”). The recess that houses the bulb is a strange design because while it’s about 8” wide, it’s only about 2.5” deep and the bulb fits arcoss the depth axis and not the width axis which prevents a larger bulb from fitting (40W isn’t enough to shed light on the range, expecially considering it’s located toward the back of the even rather than the front where I mainly use the stove burners.
What I ended up going was to wire up a spliiter that screws into the existing E17 socket and splits into 2 E17 sockets that are directed sideways which allows for 2 much larger bulbs. I currently am using two 60W (equivalent) LED bulbs. The 6000 degree light it a bit too white so I’ll likely look for 3000 degree bulbs instead, but the light is amazingly bright (120W vs. 40W) — the low setting might show some 60hz flicker with LED lights (probably should insert an inegrator capacitor to dampen that out), and for some reason the light doesn’t complete turn off when the panel button is set to off. I assume that means there is a small residual current that isn’t enough to light up the incandescent filament (a filament bulb turns completely off) but is enough to render a very slight “night light” illumination of the far more current sensitive LED. And remember, two 60W LED bulbs is still only about 12W so that’s no problem for a 40W fixture, and they don’t warm up or burn out.
