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.

This is the worst ...
By Nancy Kluter
from Canton, GA, United States
Comments about Frigidaire FFMV162LS Stainless Steel Over-The-Range Microwave:
This is the worst microwave oven I have ever had. The fan comes on by itself when we aren't even in the room and has to be unplugged to turn it off. It's cheap and sounds tinty and is awful.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Handle broke off
from Beaufort, SC, United States
We bought this house in Nov 2014 and the house had new appliances, including this microwave. The bottom of handle broke off first then the top of the handle broke off. We have two adults living here and no children. Under normal use I wouldn't expect the handle to just break off like that. It seems to have very inferior plastic for the handle. Otherwise the microwave works great.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Nice look but inferior quality & beeper
from Burbank, CA, United States
Bought the microwave in April 2014 for over the stove placement. Con 1: The door started to crack at the base of the handle within 6 months. I believe from the tension on the handle when opening & closing the door. Did not even think about the factory warranty. ug. In July 2015 the crack became a whole with the handle at the bottom no longer attached. Called to order a replacement door, that would have been 1/2 the cost of the Microwave. Instead bought the two year warranty for 2/3 of the cost. A month later it was fixed (I had to remove it off the cabinet/wall). Con 2: The beep when done is obnoxious. Pros: Nice looking, easy of the key pad and choices.
Over all awesome

This was put in my new house by our builder and it's awesome.
from Auburn, AL, United States
We love this microwave. Works great. Heats evenly. We've had no problems at all.
from Salt Lake City, UT, United States
In the two years we have lived in our home we have had the door replaced twice due to the plastic handle breaking. Clearly- poor design and cheap materials. We will be looking elsewhere to replace.
Good, but simple changes would make it better
from Chicago, IL, United States
When simply working as a microwave, it has been great. The lower rating is from the electronics: As some have already commented, the 3 loud beeps that can not be silenced are annoying. My biggest complaint is that when you have the timer running, you can not cook anything. Seems like a small thing, but it has happened dozens of times in the 4 years I have owned it. One more easy fix - have the display reset to the time after 5 minutes or so (if you stop before the time is up the display remains at that time until you manually reset it).
Works as expected
from Beaverton, OR, United States
