This is the 2nd one I have had. Thanks to insurance I got a new one after 1 1/2 yrs. the first one died. Now the 2nd one is a lemon cause the turn table isn't working but no other complaints with it. Works great for all uses. Really happy with it overall. Will get the 3rd today cause still under store warranty. Only probs. I have is with the places they send you for the warranty work if needed.

Comment:
This microwave is nice... It is large though and very noisy while in use. The door has always made a lot of noise while closing. At first it was sometimes difficult to close the door. Now closing the door ... SLAM!!! After two years of daily use, when I open the door the turntable starts moving. This seems to be a common complaint which is somehow tagged to the door switch being bad. I really wasn't planning on having to replace a microwave every two or so years. So I need to decide... Do I chase food, buy a new microwave or take this one apart

Comment:
We use this microwave primarily for reheating meals and defrosting. The unit is powerful, has simple controls and it heats evenly. However, the door latch broke after one and one-half years. We were able to make it work for awhile by closing the door REALLY firmly, but the latch finally gave out. I would not recommend this Panasonic because of that issue.
