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.

Normal microwave Door shuts very hard and loud Has no extra bells and whistles
It does everything I need it to do.
from Houston, TexaS
The Microwave does all that I require of it. The one problem that needed fixed was to replace the SS door handle with a Heat Resistant Handle. The other item which should be addressed is the door closing as it is hard to close.
Good Microwave with some annoying features.
The microwave itself works great. Like someone else mentioned, the buzzer is annoying and the presets are limited.

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
