Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nightshade Never Again!
After only two years of use, our microwave had to have several parts replaced including Magnitron, Diode, Capacitor. The expense was very disheartening and upsetting. Also at the same time we purchased a refrigerator that had to have a main control panel replaced, a new ice maker solinide and gasket kit. The expense of that is a few hundred dollars. The racks in the refreg are also rusting.
We are now waiting for our Electrolux dishwasher and stove to give us problems. They are next I'm sure. Never again.
Print that for all to read!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Deb Electrolux products overrated
I purchased this over the range microwave, an electric cooktop, and double oven for a kitchen remodel. All products seem a little cheap for the price paid. For the price, the inside of the microwave should have been stainless steel as well. The fan on the microwave is very loud, even on low, not to mention that the fan blows upwards and steam gets all over the front of the doors of the brand new expensive cherry cabinets. Poor design. Also, the light gets so hot that the inside of the microwave becomes very hot. The way to set the power level is inconvenient. I will not buy any Electrolux products again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by chocolatechip Looks good but poor quality
Do not buy this microwave! The exhaust fan is so poor that half the steam and grease go up the glass and cabinets from the front burners. It does not 'double as a hood" as they advertise. Service tech from Electrolux said "that is how they work and until more customers complain nothing will be changed". The unit and the fan are very loud and the lighting is barely adequate. The sensor does work well - needed to add time for popcorn and decrease time on defrost. The touch pad is hard to see yet finger prints stay on easily.

This is a replacement microwave for my other Electrolux microwave. The old one was 4 years old and did not have a turntable. Its bottom was some type of white glass and it exploded one day. i had to have the exact same fit because my kitchen was only 6 months old and it would of required tearing out back splash. Because size was very critical for fit I tried calling customer service for more detailed measurements, they would only read to me from their book would not transfer me so I could get more exact measurements. Ended up being 1/4' inch different so tile had to all be cut anyway. We have only had this for a month, turntable is nice and it has 3 level fan. It is vented outside. It was nice because handle matched all my other appliances from 5 years ago.

Not at all happy with this microwave. We are currently waiting on our 4th to arrive. Original was purchased in April, 2011. It arrived bent on one side from the factory (shipping box was in excellent condition). It was replaced and worked for a couple of months before the magnetron went out. Received another replacement, magnetron has gone out in it as well. Third time wasn't a charm for us and we're not convinced that the fourth will be either. We've been without a microwave for four weeks as of this writing. Sorry but I just cannot recommend this product.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jon Door handle broke after 15 months and not covered
The plastic stand-offs for the door handle just broke from normal use and I had to replace them both. Our Electrolux refrigerator and oven have metal stand-offs so they are ok but this expensive microwave is poorly designed in that respect.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by oleman Poor features
Very disappointed in microwave. Bought unit to complete kitchen upgrade to stainless steel. Two big issues is the front panel is not back lite and is very hard to read. In evening we typically keep lights in kitchen low which then makes it impossible to see microwave settings. So if we want to heat up some popcorn we need to turn on all the lights in the kitchen. Also the bottom light gets so hot that it heats up the interior of the microwave. Will lay off Electrolux products for ever.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kath Great features, but
Bought the exact same microwave to replace the last one that lasted only 1 year and 9 months. It was cheaper than to buy a different brand and have it installed. The old bracket was left in place and removed two screws and put in the new one in its place. On this microwave I bought the additional 5 year warranty. I was told all appliances were made in China and Taiwan, none made in USA so the quality is not very good, I will now buy all appliances and pay for the extra warranty.
