So far so good,
This review is from: Frigidaire FGMV173KB Gallery 1.7 Cu. Ft. Black Over-the-Range Microwave (Kitchen)I recently bought a brand new house so I was in the market for a brand new stove, fridge, microwave and dishwasher. After much research, I am so glad I decided with the Frigidaire Gallery models. I didn't want the classic stainless steel models as they seem so cold to me but I didn't want white as well so black was a perfect option.

This microwave has all the bells and whistles of a top of line model, but the longevity is not there. I purchased the first one in December of 2012. It lasted a mere 3 months before internal failure. That happens f on time to time with any electrical device, so I didn't worry. It was under warranty so the entire microwave was replaced at no cost to me. The replacement was the exact same model and was installed in April of 2013. Within 6 months of operation, I had to replace the metal plate inside the unit due to sparking. Before the 1 year mark of the replacement microwave, the handle became loose and you can hear plastic rattling inside. June of 2014 was the death of the replacement microwave. Why I did, I will never know...I bought this same microwave again. This 3rd microwave has experienced the same issues as the second. It did last a little... Read more
