Fan seems ineffective

Clayton Nall 6/13/2014

This is a good microwave.  The hood-style fan on the unit does a fairly poor job of sucking steam from the range.  As a result, the front of the microwave suffers a lot of condensation during regular cooking.

Too much money poorly made

Marjorie 6/13/2014

I bought this microwave and less than 4 years I had to call repairman and found out microwave can't be fixed. I'm forced to buy a new one if ELECRTOLUX won't replace it. I have now a full kitchen of their products in my kitchen and for the $$ I paid I'm very disappointed in their product. Should last longer than 4 years.

not worth the money

bert 5/23/2014

Luckily we bought ours from the scratch and dent place™€¦paid $399.00 Nov 2012 (they list for $799.00).  March 2014 (16 months later) the magnetron tube and a couple other parts went out.  Had them replaced by an Electrolux approved repairman at a cost to me of $223.00 because only the magnetron tube is covered for more than 1 year™€¦I had to pay for other parts and labor.  One week after I got it back the magnetron tube went out again, but I guess 3 is my lucky number because as of May 2014 the 3rd magnatron tube is working so far.I would not recommend this appliance to anyone.

Unhappy

Jim 3/3/2014

We recently bought a house with Electrolux appliances that were about three years old. Our experience thus far is that they are of very poor quality and difficult to fix. We've had problems with the refrigerator, dishwasher and clothes dryer. Currently, the microwave handle is broken. Rather than pay for another service call and the replacement parts, we will be replacing the unit with that of another brand.

More to be revealed.

BT 1/31/2014

While the performance of the product is exceptional I was dismayed whenI ordered replacement parts.I had my kitchen remodeled & wit required relocation of the microwave. In the process the vent cover screw became broken & I had to re-order the chrome strip that covers the vent. I was shocked to learn that this non functioning part was $150. It has no operating parts & is strictly cosmetic in function,. Since we wanted our new kitchen to reflect the investment, we had no choice but to order the part. There should be more of a direct relation between the functioning of the replacement part and relative cost.

Electrolux products -- good when they're working

Bob 12/18/2013

Our first microwave experienced a catastrophic door failure, which appeared to come about due to unexplained deterioration of the plastic hinge assembly. My replacement model exhibits a "rattling" noise as the turntable rotates when the unit is on. My appliance repair man had mentioned that I would have been better off purchasing a Whirlpool product.

Better than fair

ColdKase 12/18/2013

Overall the microwave has been a good unit. The only problem is that the handle came off in my hand. It appears that the screws pulled right through the plastic even though I have not abused the unit. Technician was out in a few days and replaced the door and handle at no cost to me plus he added a couple of washers to widen the area of support. Here's hoping that I never need another repair.

Handle breaks off

Patty 8/15/2013

I bought this microwave because of its attractive design and large turntable for an over the stove microwave. Also to match the other Electrolux appliances I had purchased for my new kitchen. The handle has broken off twice in less than 3 yrs and the repairs and new handles are not warrantied. Also, the repairman that came out to do the repair broke the snap on clips to the upper vent so it now is attached with duct tape and crazy glue. Very expensive but cheaply constructed. BOO!

 The unit does a fine job of heating, defrosting and all I ask it to do,  but I wish the controls were backlit as  operation in dim light is difficult. I also have found  the unit is loud  during use.

Poor Design, Electronic problems

Bill 8/15/2013

This microwave has broken 2 times. It started making a loud noise and did not heat up. First time was 11 months after purchase. The repair was covered by warranty. I had to detach the unit from the cabinets so the repairman could bring to his shop. When repaired, I was responsible for putting it back in place. Soon after it broke a second time with the same problem. I was told by the repairman that the problem was caused by the microwave being turned on without anything inside. This often happens when cleaning the outside panel. The start button accidentally gets pushed and it breaks. The repair is over $400. I trashed it rather than putting good money into this poorly designed microwave.

Very bad quality for huge money.

Lena 3/27/2013

its looks nice outside,but poor quality performance.When I opened a microwave after instalation , noted the piece that made of hard plastic/metolic/paper item hanging on the celleing of microwave, i took it off and noted the fan that the plastic/metolic/paper item was covering. Bad surprize, Very expencive microwave with piece of junk that i have to pay my $$$.So that piece of plastic/metolic/paper item Im not able to put back to cover the fan inside of microwave, because its was glu in microwave.Now the fan is hanging open in microwave, nothing will fit to cover it, and very hard to clean.I have to pull the rack out of microwave ,otherwize nothing to fit inside. . The touch control is invisible, hard to see on the screen. I assumed the control panel will be visible in the dark, but no. I have to turn the kitchen lights to set up setting on microwave, unhappiness.

Great at cooking; Two issues

Daylily Gardener 1/30/2013

Bought this less than seven months ago to coordinate with a new Electrolux glass-top range (which I love). Microwave has been used normally. Today the plastic mount that holds the microwave door handle shattered inexplicably. There's no reason why such a high quality appliance should have plastic mounts. The range door handles have metal mounts. In addition, I've found the microwave touchpad very difficult to read unless light is shining on it at the proper angle. As a cooking appliance, this microwave is great. I'm very satisfied with its performance. The design needs reworking.

Bottom Controls stink

WRP 1/24/2013

We have had microwaves over our range forever, with no problems until this one. It works gretafor a while, but then it blew out. We were told by the repairman that it was probably because of steam penetrating the control panel. When this happens, the unit freerzes and becomes completely inoperable until it dries out. Now, we have to have the door open when boiling water or or cook anything that produces steam. It doesn't take long to freeze if we forget. I rigged a steam diverter with cardboard for when we need to use it and boil anything at the same time.And being out of warranty, we loose... Do Not Buy This Unit for over the range. It stinks!

We do like the appearance. However, for the 2nd time the plastic backing has broke and thess veneer has pulled away and cannot be placed back in position. The appliance is just over a year old--very disappointed since the sleak appearance was a feature that appealed to us.

JDiver 1/14/2013

We';ve had this now since April 2011. Had door replaced twice because the handle breaks. We are not hard on it. Acts like the plastic gets brittle and just crumbles. The service guy is the same one who has been out before and says it's installed wrong. He's trying to tell us the bottom of the unit has to be 30" from the top of the range. Bunk. the install manual clearly says that the minimum distance is 30" from the TOP of the microwave to the top of the range. We have it at about 35", 5" more than minimum.The controls are so dark they are almost unreadable. How come they don't light up like the range?We have it vent to the outside. It works great, just VERY noisy.

Bad Choice

Will 12/1/2012

I bought the Electrolux Over the Range Microwave to compliment the Electrolux Range in redoing our kitchen. BIG MISTAKE. Controls hard to read. Very noisy. Exhaust fans not effective and very noisy all speeds. Lights for range are too dim to be effective. Worst the magnetron has broken after 18 months. I™€™m not getting it fixed and certainly would not recommend this microwave to anyone. I™€™ve replaced it with a different vendor™€™s microwave and am delighted with it.

Great Design, No Problems

Craig 11/9/2012

Great design, very sharp looking, get compliments all the time about how high quality it looks. I bought this because it matched the range, so yes for a basic microwave it was a little extra more but totally worth it in my opinion, here is why.Pros:Its extra large inside, more then most Over The Range Microwaves. It looks and feel really solid. The handle is stainless steel not plastic and the control are all glass. It's easy to clean, basic settings, 3 speed fan out the top and 3 light settings. Really dose a good job dealing with smoke so the fan is loud, but only from the air rushing through the system, not from a motor.The straight truth on the controls is that they have grey text on black background. So if you have really bad eyes or cook in the dark, then yes they are going to be hard to read. I wear glasses and not found it a problem. The Plus, Plus, Plus for me is that this is the ONLY Over The Range (OTR) Microwave I have found that has touch controls on glass and not on a cheap plastic panel. That means over time no fading, discoloring, or wear marks. I think some built-ins have this but not any OTRs except this one.I wish they made this with the same Wave Touch controls with back lighting similar to the range. It would really kick it up a couple of notches. Until then, high quality, larger capacity, good style and clean controls that won't look worn out in a few years is a winner for me.With respect to some of the negative reviewers here, it looks like they never owned an OTR (Over The Range) microwave. All of these, regardless of brand are usually built cheaper. They can get hot because, duh, they are over a hot stove. They are designed to blow air out the front or top because many condos and apartment don't usually have outside venting like a house. All OTR microwaves are like this.Cons:Really the only con as mentioned is that the display is not backit like the range. However, no other brand has backlit displays either.

Review for 30" over the range Microwave oven

Ginny 8/20/2012

The controls are difficult (nearly impossible) to read...lighting the controls would have greatly enhanced the product.The finish over the controls shows fingerprints and is most difficult if not impossible to keep clean.The exhaust fan is inferior. It does not absorb cooking odors....simply blows them back into the room.The black area around the face of the oven is too large as it limits the visibility into the oven once it is mounted. The window area could have been enlarged by 2" on the bottom.The timer cannot be used for other purposes when the microwave is in use. When engaged, it resets the cook time.The trim bar at the top of the microwave broke and had to be replaced within the warranty period.I cannot say that I would recommend this product to others. I am sure you will use this information to improve it for future production.

wolf 8/3/2012

We recently renovated our kitchen and decide to go with the electrolux dual fuel stove (which is great) and this over the stove microwave. Well the first one didn't last 6 months before it was replaced, now we're on our second one and it doesn't sound right either. Beware of the microwave, trust me we should have second guessed our decision more based on the reviews we saw but didn't. Live and learn.

Looks Great-Works Well-Poor Construction

Pat 8/3/2012

We bought an Electrolux Free Standing Range. It is fantastic. At the same time, we bought this over the range microwave. It has nice features which work well. It is beautiful, and it complements the range. Unlike the range, it does not stand any test of time. The part that spans the width of the microwave over the top of the door cracks at the attachment points, and the part needs to be periodically replaced. This part is touched only when cleaning the surface. It would appear that this part is not properly designed.
