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.

Good, but simple changes would make it better

Comments about Frigidaire FFMV162LS Stainless Steel Over-The-Range Microwave:
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).

great power and size matches other appliances from Frigidaire

This microwave came with our home. It was installed in 2011. The thing we dislike about it the most is the annoying way the beeper goes off when it is finished. It gives off 3 very loud and ridiculously long beeps. You can't stop them by opening the door and you can't get something else going until it stops. Also, it is taking the finish off the cabinet doors above it. In addition, for no reason I could see, a couple of weeks ago the plastic handle just broke off in my hand as I went to open the door.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Out builder used Frigidaire products and I was happy with that choice. I even bought a fridge.
Microwave exhaust is too loud, and i am not happy with the microwave that came with the house that i recently moved into.

The light inside went out 2nd week of use and appears to be no way to replace bulb. It seems make of cheap material that sounds awful when you close door.
Easy to use. Works well

Comments about Frigidaire Bisque Over-The-Range Microwave:
Had to replace under warranty. Door handle cracked and broke. Was too close to stove top. ABT remove cabinet, shortened it and reinstalled with new micro hood. The installers of the first one should have known that.

Comments about Frigidaire Black 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.
