      Long Constant Beep for No Reason


      When I first plugged this unit in, it made a Long Constant Beep...that I could only stop by unplugging the unit. I thought this was a Fluke (just being powered on for the first time) but two days later, I was awoken in the middle of the night by the same Loud Piercing Tone... I jumped out of my bed thinking my house was on fire, only to find out that this Microwave was what was making the Noise and NOT my Smoke Detector. I contacted Whirlpool to ask them what I should do. Whirlpool suggested that I should schedule a Technician to come and Repair it. Since I had only owned it for Two full days, I had a better Idea. I returned it back to the store and purchased something from LG versus dealing with a Whirlpool microwave that "thinks" its a Smoke Detector or a Home Security System. I would NOT recommend this Product.

      Worst Microwave I’ve Ever Owned


      Now that I have been using this Whirlpool Microwave Model: WMC50522 for over two years now, I can say without a doubt that it is the worst microwave I have ever owned. If you buy this microwave you better buy the extended warranty. After only about 18 months of use it started going haywire. In order to get it to actually heat food you have to open and close the door 1-3 times. It will stop running in the middle of a cycle. It will come on and run, not heat, by itself. It is literally possessed. And according to the Whirlpool Appliance folks you cannot get parts for it as they do not repair them. Plus like one of the other reviewers posted, it is very noisy. Though, I would put up with the noise if it actually worked properly. My recommendation, avoid Whirlpool microwaves.

      Unfortunately a Problematic Purchase

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

      This microwave looked really decent on-line and in general had all the features we were looking for. However, when it arrived, even though the box was fully intact, one corner of the outer case of the microwave creased oddly. Additionally, a very highly distracting piece of waste/scrap plastic was stuck between the two panes of glass on the door of the microwave. This waste/scrap piece of plastic did not appear to alter the function, but it was HIGHLY noticeable and very distracting, and I would have hated to try to live with viewing it every single day when I walked into the kitchen to warm something in the microwave. Additionally, the microwave is rather more noisy that other microwaves of this size that we have had in the past.... and the noise is ODDLY different in comparison to other microwave of this size we have had. For all these reasons, we packed the microwave back up and returned it to the store. We are now ordering a different model.

      So far, so good

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

      This my third try at this microwave. First one came in damaged, second would reset the clock and "door" would appear randomly within the first week. I decided to try once more (because frankly, we'd already installed the trim kit). I ordered the other 2 elsewhere, but this time from Best Buy. It arrived quickly, without damage, and is working far. Hope Whirlpool holds up like it used to, but I'm a bit disappointed it was this much trouble to get a working microwave. However, no complaints at all about service at Best Buy!

      Didn’t work right when I took it out of the box

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

      I bought a whirlpool microwave and when I took it out of the box and installed in the cabinet it didn’t work right. If the door was closed with even a slight amount of force it wouldn’t work. I feel like a switch in the door is not working properly. I’m going to return it to get another one. I’m on the fence about this product since I bought this as a replacement for a very expensive Kitchen Aid microwave, both of which are made by Whirlpool. I bought the Whirlpool because it is $300 cheaper than Kitchen Aid, yet they are the same microwave.

      Very unhappy with this product.


      This is my second Whirlpool microwave, first one lasted 2 years then had issues with the door latch and unit not working properly. This is the same model as my first one, have had it for 4 months and starting to have issues with the door latch. It won't always open, sometimes takes two or three tries to get the door open. Every once in a while the clock will go to zero also. Will never buy another whirlpool.

      It works pretty well, and also has some programing capability that is nice. I had problems setting the time. It always turns back to 0:00 and I could not find the reason in two weeks. Any device that is difficult to adjust the basic settings, is not acceptable. It is also too noisy. The door bangs loudly when open or close. For the amount of money I paid for it, I expected to be a little more refined.

      Incorrect Specifications

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

      First one we received was damaged in shipping. Replaced by Best Buy with only a small amount of fuss. Second one arrived in good shape but taller than described in specifications by an inch. Therrefore it does not fit where it was meant and now another appliance also doesn't fit. Don't bother giving me specs if they aren't accurate! Overall working fine 1 week in.
