I thoroughly researched over the range, convection microwave ovens for this purchase. My builder model, that is a 2 letter brand that starts with G, started going out after only 4 years. I have never had a microwave die before, I have had to give them away to get rid of them. I checked all of the typical review sites before my purchase i.e(Consumer Reports, etc.) Not a single one had a review that could be backed up by another sites review, except for the Maytag. For the features, design, and quality, this model stood out from the crowd. The features, are more than I can list here, that I love about this unit. I wanted a convection to help reduce the amount of heat in the kitchen when I am cooking with the oven. I was very impressed with the clean lines and appearance. I installed it myself. I measured 4 or 5 times before I drilled or cut during the entire process. If you follow the instructions closely, and have an accurate level, it will mount perfectly. Make sure you have 2 people when it comes time to mount the unit itself.

THIS UNIT IS FAIRLY WELL CONSTRUCTED, AND HAS MANY OF THE TYPICAL FEATURES YOU'D COME TO EXPECT IN A MICROWAVE. IT DOES HAVE A CONVECTION FEATURE, WHICH I HEAR IS GREAT BUT HAVE NOT HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO USE YET.IT IS EASY TO USE, AND DOES A GOOD JOB OF HEATING FOOD. IN PURE MW MODE, IT DOES HEAT MORE AROUND THE EDGES OF THE FOOD, BUT THAT IS TYPICAL FOR ANY MW OVEN.PERHAPS ITS STANDOUT FEATURE FROM THE MANY MODELS AVAILABLE TODAY IS ITS LOOKS. THIS MODEL WOULD LOOK GREAT IN ANY KITCHEN.ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE, THE EXHAUST FAN IS RATHER LOUD. ALSO, THE INTERIOR VENTING IS VERY POOR, AS A GREAT DEAL OF CONDENSATION FORMS ON THE INTERIOR WALLS WHEN HEATING SOMETHING. PART OF THIS PROBLEM MAY HAVE TO DO WITH THE INSIDE WALLS BEING STAINLESS STEEL, BUT IT SEEMS THE MAJOR PROBLEM IS THE INTERIOR VENTILATION SYSTEM. AND SINCE ITS A DESIGN FLAW, LOCAL REPAIRMEN DON'T KNOW HOW TO FIX IT.IF YOU DON'T MIND WIPING DOWN THE INTERIOR EVERY TIME YOU USE IT, THEN I WOULD RECOMMEND IT, SINCE EVERYTHING ELSE ABOUT IT IS GOOD. OTHERWISE, CONSIDER BUYING SOMETHING ELSE...

I would not purchase this item faulty construction

Comments about Maytag White 1.8 CuFt Microwave/Range Hood:
I purchased this microwave less than 2 years ago. To date the from plastic on the door has cracked and this week the plastic in the handle began breaking for no reason. I looked at Maytag parts for a replacement face plate and handle but neither one is available in black without purchasing the entire door assembly. This does not include a service call plus labor and I do not know what that rate currently is. They did offer another option the warranty plus 1 for more than what the item was purchased for. The important thing to keep in mind here is I only paid under $300 for this microwave new. I could understand the unit breaking if it was in an industrial setting or is was 5-10 years old but less than two years seems like cheap plastic was used in the manufacturing . Sadly, I hate replacing something that works well, but cost of repair versus a new one out weighs repairing it. Sadly in the future I would not recommend purchasing a Maytag product and feel compelled to dissuade others from making a similar purchase until these defects in manufacturing are addressed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This has been a great machine until now. The keypad stopped working, and to fix it the cost is $80 less than a new one.

from New hyde park NY
This model was a failure after having it for two years the main board burned. Everytime we turn the microwave on it starts chirping like is going to catch fire.. I thought it was the electric line that I installed but the tehc guy that came to the house said it wasnt. Very disappointed that a good brand like maytag wouldnt help me at all. It told me it was out of warranty just after two years
This Microwave Sucks!
from New York, New York
We've had this microwave for quite a while. From the beginning, we found the power too low to completely pop a bag of popcorn, and if we kept it in the microwave longer, it burned. Reheating foods takes much longer than past microwaves we've had (non-Maytag). I don't like the design of the gliding table because it only heats up on side of the plate. As a result, we have to microwave the food longer than we have to with our other microwave (that we only paid $60 for). We could microwave the food 2 minutes and the plate can be extremely hot and it has even burned members of my family, but frankly the food was still cold. I would not recommend this microwave to anyone.
from Harrisburg, NC
We purchased this microwave a couple years ago. Love the functionality and sleek design. Greatly disappointed that it is falling apart already. The door assembly is literally crumbling apart! Opened it yesterday to use it and a huge piece if the plastic door surround just fell off. Really disappointing that we will need to replace it so soon after purchase. Looked at getting a new door but we can buy a whole new microwave for about the same price.
Broke after 2 years
from New Hampshire
This was an expensive microwave. Now it just beeps when you push start. The only thing it is good for is the timer. I called Maytag and they don't care to help me.From the other reviews I have read on here,the majority of the consumers give this product a one star rating. I will NEVER buy a Maytag/Whirlpool product again.

Not a quality product
By maytag is horrible
from Pensacola, fl
Since brand new this microwave had an intermittent light. One day it stopped working altogether. 1.5 years into ownership the microwave quit. It is completely blank as if it is not getting power, but the outlet works fine. This thing is useless. So is out maytag oven, and fridge. Never again Maytag.
Not so great
By Frustrated cook
from Arvada, CO
I have tried to read the display panel, I have tried to read the instructions manual, I have even called to get a rep to walk me through some of the functions. I have gotten no useful instructions from anything I've tried and the rep was actually snotty to me. I am actually hating the convection part and no one I know that has one even uses it. It is not user friendly and I won't buy this brand ever again!

We purchased this microwave to replace a defective one and are very pleased with our choice. It is a very functional device. Would recommend to friends.
