Comment:
This is the second Kenmore Elite we have had. The first one lasted 3 years. This one lasted 2 years. We will never buy one of these again. We called Sears and they will not fix it because we did not buy a protection agreement and it is out of warranty. They will send a tech to the house but that would cost more than a new microwave.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
