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 FFMV162LS Stainless Steel Over-The-Range Microwave:
We are using these in an apartment community and have had several handles melt or crack. They are installed giving 20" + from the range top to the bottom of the microwave. When we questioned what was happening we were advised that we needed to have a 30" gap instead which if done that way a normal person of average height would not be able to use without a stool. My research on the installation has yielded that they can be mounted 15" to 27" from the stove top. I measured my own at home which I have had for 10 years and it is 15" away from the stove top and I have never had a problem.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about Frigidaire White Over-The-Range Microwave:
The microwave works ok, but I'll spend the money on a better one next time. The door open close mechanism isn't very smooth, so it's loud and tougher to open than it should be. The beep is also an issue-- 3 long and LOUD beeps with no way to adjust.
Looks good but feels flimsy
The door feels really flimsy like it will break and smudges easily.
Decent microwave, isnt actual stainless steel, just plastic with a metal grey paint job.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
It works great, only had it for a month or so.
The keypad malfunctioned after about 6 months.

The unit is great and looks like custom stainless appliances.

All Ok, but door
By The property manager
I am a property manager of a 252 unit complex. I use these microwaves all throughout my community. They work very well and very rarely need replacement. My only complaints are that from time to time, the door to the microwave will crack around the glass and the handle will break easily. There are small cracks that are often not noticeable to the untrained eye, but these are the things that I am paid to notice. The handle will sometimes just break off by the screws. Replacing just the door is also more expensive than just replacing the entire microwave. Overall, I recommend this product for the everyday average person....just be gentle with the doors.
