Comment:
This was a replacement for a similar model that quit working (burnt out mother board) after about 10 months of use in a new construction home. This replacement worked fine for about 13 months when the touchpad would not work. We didn't opt for the extended warranty, so we're stuck with a microwave which doesn't work anymore. Will not purchase a Frigidaire again.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
The microwave is very unreliable. It stopped heating within 4 months of installation. It stopped heating again after warranty had expired. Cost $80 for service call. Factory authorized repair person would not remove it from above the stove to even examine it. I had to hire someone else to take it down and put it back up. Do not buy this microwave.
