Have a wall oven and microwave that has required numerous repairs in now does not work at all and has been checked by a representative of the company and has it determined that it is unrepairable and that’s been over 2 1/2 weeks ago and they still have not decided what They are going to do.
Very happy with our purchase about a year ago. Easy to use. Installation went well. Easy to clean. Built-in light for over the stove is nice. Seems to heat evenly. Has good presets for quick heating.
Performs great at defrosting & cooking. Turntable works smoothly. Heats evenly. Perfect size for under counter, but looks good enough to be out in the open. Surfaces clean easily with a damp cloth. Changing power levels is quick & easy. There are only two features of this microwave that I find annoying (& both have easy fixes). One, when the time is up, it beeps loudly for several seconds & repeats over & over...even after you open the door. You can disable this. The second is, if you hesitate when pushing the numbers for the cooking time, it will set the time for what you have entered & start. So know what time you want to set before hitting any numbers!
After about 14 years of great service our beloved Microwave for which we love to reheat leftovers and cook popcorn has died. It for the last 2 year has been showing its age as the front window has been cracking and the handle broke so that only the top was holding on. But we will be buying another Frigidaire Microwave.
Long lasting, no problem, lives up to the brand name. Digital product with several options to choose from. Stainless steel with no water or fingerprints. Auto magic time when food has completed cycle. I would highly recommend this microwave because it has met the manufacturer and mine expectations thoroughly.
On our Frigidaire microwave the micro switches continue to be a problem. It seems that short out and cause the circuit breaker to trip and you can not reset breaker as it continues to trip. We have had our microwave serviced 3 times for same issue, therefore we strongly recommend you purchase an extended warranty. Without the warranty, maintenance cost would exorbitant.
I don't feel very confident with it. Must get too hot a lot because it turns off a lot midstream and need to restart it. Hard to keep turntable on correctly to turn. Doesn't seem that strong. I would buy another brand next time.
It has been okay, don't seem to get as hot as expected, and I don't like the buzzer that goes off letting you know when the cook time has finished. Some of the functions for setting defrost times, etc are confusing.
I was a little disappointed. The appliance broke down in a very short time period. It took me over two months for my Home Warranty to get the parts to get it repaired. I had Jenn Air before. Lasted for over 12 years.
It is just the right size. The buttons are large and can be viewed without glasses. It has features that allow for a variety of ways to heat or cook. It is easy to clean inside and out. We would recommend!
2 year old Frigidaire Gallery Microwave (model FGMV176NTDB) trips circuit breaker. Started with a blown fuse, which I replace ($18 for a $2 fuse... price gouging on parts). That got it to turn on, but as soon as we push "start" it trips the circuit breaker. Repairman came yesterday (had to take a full day off work). He replaced the central door switch. Tried to use it this morning and it tripped circuit breaker again as soon as you push "start". If you Google "Frigidaire microwave trips circuit breaker" you will find many posts about this problem. 2 years old and it's going to go in the landfill.
Frigidaire, if you are listening, you need to fix this problem because there are LOTS of negative reviews. Also, when light came on to replace "filter" (about 6 months in), there was no filter (others have commented on that). It never came in the original box. The plastic "vent" where the filter is is also very cheap... The holes where the screws go in are plastic and it broke the first time I replace the filter (or put in a new filter that I had to buy, which should have been included with it originally).
While I love the performance and features of my Frigidaire Over-The-Range microwave, today the "Filter" light came on for the first time. So I opened up the panel covering the filter - and it wasn't there. It is supposed to come with a filter. So I called customer support and asked for my filter. Since I purchased the microwave in my camper 2.5 years ago, they refused to do anything but give me a 15% discount on what they described as a "replacement." They aren't replacing anything and refused to stand behind their manufacturing mistake. I had no reason to suspect it wouldn't be there until the filter light reminded me to replace it. They should have sent me the filter free of charge. I don't think that is unreasonable. They do not stand behind their products. Floritza was not very understanding on the phone - no empathy, no real apology. Either one might have dampened my frustration enough not to write this.
We had the microwave come with our manufactured home in October, 2018. It died yesterday. So we got 2 years and 1 month. No warranty, but as soon as my husband goes back to work we will buy another brand! My son replaced the blown fuse in it but it blew it out again. I will never buy this brand again. Be careful if you buy one, start a saving account so you can buy a new one in 2 years.
Have had Frigidaire over the stove Microwave for 1.5 years and keep having problems with door sensors telling microwave to trip breaker. Not under warranty so had to call out repair service. They determined it was a door sensor that was broken and replaced it. Worked for a few weeks and now for the last 2 months, I keep my fingers crossed that when I go to use microwave it will not trip the breaker. Sometimes it only takes one trip to the garage to restore breaker and sometimes 2 or 3 times. Frigidaire takes no responsibility for a clear design problem. Door has always been hard to open. Had a GE for 14 years that still worked perfectly when I moved. I would not recommend any Frigidaire product to anyone. Don't want to call out repair again because they will just charge me more money. Would rather buy cheap counter top unit then keep using my over the range Frigidaire microwave.
Model FFCE1439LW. Mfr date 10/17. Purchased 2/1/18 because 1) 25 yo Kenmore finally died 2) you can’t live w/o a microwave. Drove 20 miles each way just to buy this bc it’s white—didn’t want to buy all new appliances bc white isn’t the ‘in’ color anymore. Only white microwave available anywhere, and 10 days wait even on Amazon Prime. This has not performed at all since day one. It’s control panel is very picky—if you don’t mash the start button hard enough, it will start countdown but no actual cooking is happening. It needs to get smacked in order to run.
I wanted to return it but 20 mile drive, no replacement, selling this house—seemed easier to deal with annoyance. Finally got house ready to sell then Covid so still stuck here and microwave is still junk. There have been power fluctuations at various times because of weather but this wasn’t working right, straight from the box. I’ve tried different plugs (the kitchen was rewired to give outlets separate lines) but nothing makes a difference. I’ve left it unplugged and plugged back in, hoping to discharge any built-up current, but still doesn’t work right. Whenever I nuke something, I have to hit the start button hard, and I’ve got a 50/50 shot that it’ll start or I’ll need to slap it hard. Shameful!
Bought two of the same brand same style microwave for over the range within a 9 year period. First gallery microwave died the first year. The second one broke today. the door latch just stopped working in the middle of a reheat. I will not buy Frigidaire again. It has been a waste of my money. The range that came with the set is also junk. the door never has completely shut and you can see the steam escape above the door. The refrigerator always pops since day one. Wish I never bought any of these products.
I purchased Frigidaire's 4 piece kitchen appliance set and within 1.5 years, I've attached operating issues with 2 products. Noticing issues with basically new appliances, I purchased the extended warranties. I contacted Frigidaire in April about the microwave cutting off during the cooking time. They sent a technician from Fast Appliance located in my area and to date, the technician has been to my home 6 times for the same issue. During this pandemic, this is not acceptable. Going back and forth between Frigidaire and the repair appliance company is something no consumer should have to deal with after paying for the appliance and the warranty.
The most recent visit to install yet 'another' part was just yesterday and yes, the microwave cut off again during the cooking time. And during the installation, the technician broke the panel that covers access to the parts and simply just placed it back after telling me the plastic parts Frigidaire uses are cheap but he was able to reconnect it. (Not true all.) As soon as I opened the door, the panel fell off. I called Fast Appliance to complain about the multiple service calls needed to restore the condition of the microwave and about the broken panel and was told to contact Frigidaire AGAIN for another service all. After "6" visits, I've had enough. I will only converse with management on both sides because at this point, I want a refund. SAVE YOURSELF the time and headache and DO NOT PURCHASE ANY FRIGIDAIRE PRODUCTS.
Just bought house at Kent Ranch. House came with Frigidaire Gallery appliances installed by the builder contractor, combination microwave and oven is the worst thing we ever had, the microwave did not even last a year, we only use it once or twice a week with a max 2 min heating, when suddenly stop working and lost power.. Made in CHINA.
Model no: CGMV176NTF. DO NOT buy the Frigidaire Gallery microwave. Ours was purchased in Oct. 2018 and died in May 2020...just 1.5 years after purchasing it. After YouTube and Google research, it sounds like a faulty door switch. We opened the microwave door and the microwave made a popping noise, and the lights in kitchen flickered. Our house has upgraded 200 amp service so it's not our electrical. It's been a month now, and the supposed 'repair kit' isn't in yet. Why does a microwave that was only used for 1.5 years have its own repair kit? It hasn't even been inspected by a technician yet. There needs to be a recall.
My Frigidaire over range microwave (Gallery series) purchased/registered in Aug 2019 suddenly began ‘arcing’ making it unusable. It has one yr warranty that’s fast approaching. I had SAME model for 21 yrs until it died of OLD AGE! I go to website for 800# (“due to C-19 our phone lines temp not in service- BUT go to our website for ALL your needs”). On website it directs you to go to the ‘CHAT BUTTON’ if you cannot find your answer ONLY there is NO such BUTTON. But after several minutes of navigating for BUTTON & with NO obvious alternate contact tools (other than multiple messages to call 800# if product under warranty (same out-of-service #), I ACCIDENTALLY tabbed to end of site that had an EMAIL contact with message: “And if you have the time to contact us by email -see button below.” (there was a button!)
I completed the complaint form IN FULL & I received an email response that someone would contact me in 3 BUSINESS days - THAT WAS 10 DAYS AGO. I resubmitted complaint 4 BIZ days ago & STILL NO RESPONSE. FRIGIDAIRE products are NOT CHEAP (in PRICE that is!) This cannot be explained as a ‘regrettable oversight’ or some other lame excuse. If FRIGIDAIRE cared about the ‘brand’ much less for customers & product loyalty - I wouldn't be wasting my time writing this but rather enjoying my microwaved snack! DON'T BUY FRIGIDAIRE.
Bought Frigidaire counter microwave and soon after I got it paint inside started cracking. Smokes and burning smell. Afraid to use. Would not recommend or do not intend to buy anymore Frigidaire products. At least $200.00 down the drain and I am a senior on a fixed income. I had a better experience with a $25 yard sale microwave.
This Frigidaire Microwave came with a house we bought. We use it maybe 3-5 times a week. Built in July 2016, Model LFMV164QFA. I closed the door one day and saw a spark and flash and now the thing is dead. From reading other reviews this seems to be a known door switch problem. I have NEVER had a microwave stop working! After 15 years, my old one is still going strong! Very disappointed! I thought Frigidaire was a quality company. I am now worried about my Frigidaire stove (which has been rapidly cycling on and off once at temperature) and Frigidaire refrigerator....
Have used this microwave for about 28 months. I take care of my stuff. I don't use it too much or anything. Google the term 'Frigidaire microwaves' and you will read 'fuse going out,' 'it trips my circuit breaker,' and something with the door latch feature, all 3 issues causing this to not work. Yep. Just after the 1 year warranty or around the 2 year mark, such as mine. You will feel mistaken for a fool, robbed blind of your money, as they do not stand behind their product. Just called customer services/warranty and all they can do is recommend a repair person. Repair person told me it will cost $200 or more so best to just replace it. Will never buy Frigidaire again. Model No. FFMV1645TS
Bought $5000 worth of Frigidaire (Electrolux) appliances. Fridge compressor failed, just barely covered under 12-month warranty. Then I spilled a bowl of soup in the microwave, which is mounted above the oven. This caused the oven to fail because it dribbled onto circuit board which is not protected. The Tech said it was not covered because it was my fault for spilling a bowl of soup. He did fix it though, (2 weeks from the end of the 12-month warranty) and acted like he was doing me a big favor. You spill something, it will cost you $500 after the 12 warranty runs out. This is a glaring, irresponsible design flaw.
This Microwave needs to be recalled. It blows fuses and the 20 amp circuit in my home. Frigidaire will do nothing to help you out. They offer 20% off on parts. The service tech told me, "Throw it out. It's not worth it". They told me to change my circuit breaker to a larger one. I won't be surprised if someone's house doesn't burn down. Mine is a little over two years old. Model # FGMV175qfa. I wrote a letter to the Federal Trade Commission. Hope others will do the same.
Purchased appliance Nov.2017. Within 9 mos. door circuit failed and replaced under warranty. One year later same switch failed and cost was $280.00 to repair. Dec 19/2019 switch went again. Microwave not working at all same as before. No help from dealer. Phoned Frigidaire. ABSOLUTELY no help. As other reviewers have stated, they do not stand behind this product in the slightest. Net result in 2 years of owning this product it has cost us a dollar a day. Avoid this piece of junk and the Frigidaire company in general!
Bought Frigidaire gallery over the range microwave and it only worked for 22 months. Had a Kenmore before that and it lasted 18 years. Stay away from Frigidaire. I bought this microwave because of the size, it was the only one that could fit into the space that I have.
Purchase this microwave 3 years ago. Temperature never seemed right. Lowest setting was same as highest setting. Recently the unit kept tripping the circuit breaker. Tried multiple plugs and same result. Then it just stopping working entirely. Frigidaire was no help, out of warranty. From reading the comments on this site I can see that this is a known issue that is being ignored by Frigidaire. It also seems apparent that Frigidaire manipulates their service to extend repairs until units are out of warranty rather than replacing.
My Frigidaire Gallery was recommended but now I regret this purchase. Like many other reviewers have noted, after about a year, it begins to trip the circuit breaker. When I called Frigidaire, their only remedy was to purchase a new one or get it repaired for several hundred dollars. Why is Frigidaire continuing to make a defective product??! I'm so frustrated and angered. They're aware of the problem and offer no remedy that's fair to their customers. My old microwave (different brand) worked for 26 years! I only replaced it because I wanted stainless steel and an upgraded model.
Frigidaire is a complete fraud!!!! In less than a year my microwave fuse has blown. So they sent out a technician to fix it, in less than 2 days after repair the same fuse blew again. Technician came out again and fixed. A week later the fuse blew again. I advised the technician that my electrician stated if the same problem is occurring then the unit should be replaced. He said no it can be fixed so they replaced the same fuse again and the panel has been removed so much it's loose. So now today the fuse has blown again and they offer me a 40% discount because now I'm out of warranty and my previous microwave from Whirlpool lasted a whole 6/7 years with any issues. So I just want to know how many people buy a microwave every year???? I'll wait. Still waiiting. I feel disgusted, I feel cheated and I feel mistreated. This company sucks and I will be writing a letter of disgust and will post this on every site about frigidaire.
