It's quieter than the 13 year-old Frigidaire OTR microwave oven it replaced. Also, it is better shielded, such that my digital scale doesn't go haywire when the microwave is running.Read complete review
It's quieter than the 13 year-old Frigidaire OTR microwave oven it replaced. Also, it is better shielded, such that my digital scale doesn't go haywire when the microwave is running.Now, the not so great items. The 3" screws used in conjunction with the toggle bolts were too long; I had to go to a big box store to get a replacement set that used only 2" screws.There is conflicting information in the installation manual when compared to the cabinet template, where the former states you need a 1/4" drill bit, whereas you should have a 3/8" model. Go with the bigger one; it should give you more wiggle room, in case the template doesn't square up perfectly.The timer alarm is weak; you get a brief chirp to indicate that the time has run out. I prefer a louder and longer alarm.There is no panel option to disable the turntable.Aside from the issues encountered with installation and timer alarm, the microwave functions quite well.

we owned the precursor to this model for almost 5 years. it was great then it died (too fast imo). this model was suggested as its replacement. this is a simply awful consumer device. they changed the location of buttons (WHY!!???). they removed the feature where you hit a number and it cooks for that many minutes. most frustrating however is that the timing and power of cooking items has changed, and its now unevenly cooked (hot spots and cold spots). Lastly and most irritating, the beeping is so LOUD it wakes kids up two floors away, and in a final move that indicates the designers didn't care about their customer, the thing keeps beeping even after you removed the food. do not ever ever buy this and ABT please tell frigidaire they are close to losing my dishwasher and refrigerator business after this anti-customer design.

Comments about Frigidaire FFMV162LB Black Over-The-Range Microwave:
This microwave came brand new with my house from a builder. Apparently they have a contract with Frigidaire because all my appliances came from them. If I had an option to choose a different microwave, I would have. I have had this microwave for 4 years. I haven't had issues with the handle cracking like other reviewers and it does heat food well. However, I cannot fit two soup bowls on the turntable. There is no option to turn off the turntable, and the manual says to not use the microwave without it. The 3 long beeps after food is cooked is extremely annoying and even after taking out your food on the first beep and shutting the door, the 2 beeps will still come afterward and there's no way to make it stop. Next microwave after this one will have no turntable. I haven't seen a difference between food being cooked in my microwave and my mother's that doesn't have a turntable.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Don't waste your money
from Lafayette, LA, United States
Bought this microwave in june of 2015 and it didn't even last a year. We were using it and it threw some sparks and made a big flash in the kitchen and turned off. we replaced the 20 amp fuse and now the exhaust fan and light for the stove works but as soon as you try to start the microwave it blows the fuse. Very disappointed in choosing to purchase this microwave despite the bad reviews about the door and beeper which were fine with me as long as it worked.

from Winder, GA, United States
This waa installed in the new home we bought. Not something I would have picked. Works fine and looks good but I've certainly had better microwaves. It's annoying to use, having to push cook time everytime, or making sure it's cleared before hand. The door is horrible. It does not open or close easily and I have actually woken my husband up in the other room with the door closed forming closing the microwave door. Extremely cheap.
Nice size, works well
from Virginia Beach, VA, United States
This unit was purchased by the VA to install in a house we were purchasing through VA foreclosure. I would have preferred a few other options, but this is a good, basic over the stove microwave.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I wish it had: the extra metal rack for 2 level cooking and the light had 2 settings instead of on or off. Size is great; power is great. Builder installed so did not have the option to upgrade.

We have a lot of different users and I haven't had one complaint, only people happy with this unit. Very nice looking as well which is a plus.

I bought this model as an exact replacement for one that had a controller card failure, to facilitate easy installation.

Very sleek looking!
from Springfield, IL, United States
Very nice microwave. Love the solid black. It beeps three times when food is done. Nice feature.
Beeping is excessive!
The 3 beeps when done are annoying, 1 is sufficient. Then the continuing reminding beeps are annoying and intrusive. I love the design and lighting.
from Atlanta, GA, United States
We bought this microwave for our new house, we were looking for something that looked great and cook according to the instruction on most foods. The microwave has great features like one-touch cooking and cooks everything according to the cook time on the package.
