We purchased this microwave less than 2 years ago and this weekend, it started on fire. It wasn't even being used. I heard it running while I was cooking breakfast and without thinking (I wasn't actually using it) I hit the stop button. It was still running and I again hit the stop button, this time it caught my attention that I wasn't using it. A few seconds later we heard horrible electrical shorting sounds followed by flames. Needless to say, I am sooooo not impressed that I have to shell out another $350 bucks for a microwave. Sears used to be a name you could trust and Kenmore used to be "THE" appliances to buy - not anymore. Their products do not last, are built cheap and Sears does nothing for their customers in the end.
We had the microwave for 14 months. Tonight I went to heat up a meal and smoke the smell of melting plastic or rubber started billowing out of the bottom. It's a one-year warranty, so unless Sears is feeling generous, that it. We're out the $332...plus the hassle of shopping for a new one.
Quick easy install with all hardware included and easy to follow instructions. The additional rack allows for heating up multiple things at the same time and can be removed for larger items. Exhaust fan can be pointed up for vertical venting, or horizontal. I flipped it so I could vent out our wall and it has worked excellent and looks nice too.

After about 11 months an electric burning smell started coming out whenever we used the microwave. We were lucky because it was still under the manufacturers warranty. Sears were able to come out and confirm that it was faulty and I started the process of replacing it. I picked a Kenmore Elite model this time.
First, I want to point out that this microwave has a feature not noted in the description provided - in fact, this feature was not mentioned for any microwave we considered. The salesperson didn't know about it either. What is the feature? This microwave allows the user to cook and use the timer simultaneously. Not a small deal! Manufacturers should brag about this because it's a great feature on any microwave. The other great feature is sensor cooking. A microwave doesn't need a ton of buttons or pre-sets - in fact, a lot of buttons is too many, in my opinion. This probably has more than we'll ever use, but it has the important ones: the timer/cook feature, sensor cooking, potatoes & popcorn.
I wish you could try microwaves in the store before buying them, this one is poorly designed, and unreliable too! Compared to the Whirlpool this replaced, which lasted 15 years, this one is harder to use, and is broken for the second time in two years. We got the extended warrantee, but that is a joke. Its been on the fritz since mid-July (now its 1-sep.) They have been stringing me along weekly about when it will get repaired. Even the 'escape clause' which allows you to rent a replacement is basically a lie. Sure they will reimburse you, but nobody rents microwaves, so we are stuck. We've had it almost two years, and I am still hunting for the right buttons all of the time, they are poorly laid out, and do not have icons on them, but instead lots of words. Bad design. This is one of those products which has a gazillion buttons, which you never use, but requires you to do more 'pecking' for the functions you use many times daily. For example, the whirlpool had true one-touch microwaving. You'd hit +30, or whatever, and it would start cooking shortly without you having to hit start. This thing always requires at least two taps, and often many more to accomplish simple tasks like cooking for two minutes. I'm a programmer, and the person who programmed the controls on this was terrible, its not often I find a blatant bug in a product like this, but this one does has several. For example, if it finishes say a 2 minute cook, then it has this little beeping ditty it plays. Fine, but when the ditty causes all of the buttons to go dead until its finished, thats like the 'decoration' is more important than the function. Before it completely died, it was getting sorta flaky, and several times I've seen it cook when I don't want it too, and I think once I had to go to the circuit breaker to make it stop. Scary! Products like this should have redundancy built in so that even if one this goes bad, the thing does not start like that.

After being repaired on warranty after about 7 months of light use this has become inoperable again less then 8 months later. Great microwave when it works unfortunately the quality of Kenmore products remains very much a big question to me. Will probably replace with a different brand altogether which is hate because this does belong to a matching set with stove, refrigerator and dishwasher. Which to this point have all been problem free. But after a horrible experience with top of the line Kenmore Elite Washer there will probably not be any more Kenmores in our future. Which is sad because this is what we both grew up with....
75.00 Dorm micowaves do not fail at this rate! Microwave lost all power, no lights, no function, no nothing. Service tech came out, while taking it apart, something got it back up and running, he was not sure...no charge for service, in less than an hour it failed again! Not willing to purchase a warranty that is almost as much as replacement. Last Kenmore purchase for this household!
