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.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Poorest choice for microwace
from Tennessee, United States
When I bought my home, I bought all Frigidaire appliances, thought these would be well made a last. Well not so much. The microwave is VERY cheaply made. The handle chipped first then the door plastic is cracking on the bottom and top of the door. (This is for the person who responds to these! YES IT IS AT THE RECOMMENDED MANUFACTORS HIGHT ABOVE THE STOVE). Ok last NIGHT while while cooking a small potatoe......IT STOPS WORKING! Will not come on at all. We have checked the breaker(AGAIN FOR THE PERSON REVIEWING THIS! YES IT IS ON IT'S OWN INDIVIDUALBREAKER!) I have never been so disappointed in a product that carries a trusted name.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Own this item over three months now and it had been working quite good so far.
So far, does the trick!
from Excelsior, MN
Got a good price, and it seems to cook faster than our old one. Mounting bracket leaves a little to be desired, but it works.
Buzzer is the Absolute WORST
from Clarksville, IN
The buzzer on this microwave is the absolute WORST!! The buzzer does not go off when you open the door and it goes off OVER & OVER & OVER!! It is the most annoying microwave I have ever owned or used!! There is also only 3 presets you can press all others you have to hit timed cook and then input the time

Item came with the new house we purchased in August
Great features and easy to use
from Newnan, GA, United States
I moved into my home 6 months ago , and the Frigidaire microwave has been very good. The buttons are easy , which makes it very easy to use, the wattage is perfect and doesn't take long to cook or reheat any food ..
Looks good while doing its job!
from Tucson, AZ, United States
I had one of these microwaves in a rental home I lived in for 2 years. When I bought my new home I was so pleased to find out it would come with the same microwave! Sleek looking and heats up quick! What more can you ask for ??
