Product Reviews
Rated 2 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed Product arrived quickly. Installed easily and worked 1 time. The second time I tried to use it it made a loud bang and stopped working. Whirlpool warranty service came out and the parts have been on order for 3 weeks. Still waiting....... 2/28/11
Rated 4 out of 5 by At Last! Powerful, sleek and meets all our needs (and then some)! Has too many features we haven't taken advantage of, but I like the idea that something as mundane as my microwave can surprise me sometimes. So far so good and happy with the purchase. 7/9/11
Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't Buy.... I live in a subdivision where all of the houses have this microwave. After purchasing the house in July 2011, the magnetron and control panel in the microwave was replaced in November 2011. The magnetron went out again in February 2012 and the 2nd tech said the microwave needed to be replaced. He also said they had numerous problems with this microwave due to it's construction out of the country. I will let you know after the microwave is replaced....all that I know is that I don't want this model again....3 of my neighbors have had or is scheduled to have theirs replaced also. That doesn't say anything good about this product. 3/1/12
Rated 2 out of 5 by they think it has a -- great timer! The machine broke 5 days after the warranty expired! Actually we had the 4xvs not the 5 7/6/12
