Samsung Fall 4 Piece Kitchen Package Rebate

Offer Expires: 8/22/2019 to 11/5/2019 Must be postmarked by: 12/5/2019

Receive a 10% off rebate with purchase of qualifying 4 piece Samsung Kitchen Appliance Package. Rebate form must be postmarked by 12/5/2019.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Basic Microwave without all the bells and whistles!

JDH2018 1/5/2018

Our 4 year old LG microwave died on Christmas Day. Fancy microwave with many options and settings that we rarely use. This Samsung model was a breeze to install. Looks good and does exactly what it supposed to do -- HEAT FOOD. Only complaint was very dim under hood light even on high setting. Replaced with 5W high power T17 LED and very pleased with result.

SiddR 12/27/2017

Nothing special about it. It's a basic over the range microwave. These don't last more than 5 years usually. The magnetron goes bad and starts making an arcing sound.

Instructions Vague and Installation Difficult

eternalskeptic 12/26/2017

The installation instructions for this product were written by somebody who may SPEAK English as a second language, but does not WRITE it well. They: A) are vague; B) do not properly explain various operations; C) are repetitive; D) use such poor English grammar, in places, as to be useless; E) have not been proofread and have spelling and grammatical errors that one must read and re-read in order to understand. A "native" English speaker would have identified the errors and corrected them. It took three (3) of us to figure out how to use the mounting bar and to hoist the thing into place. Moreover, the instructions for PLACING the mounting bar are confusing. We had to re-mount it for that reason. The under-cabinet mounting template instructions were not clear and we had to fix, re-fix, and "re-re-fix" the mounting holes to hold the thing in place. Between trying to understand the instructions, discussing how to place the mounting bar, RE-placing it and putting the product on it, and then repeatedly removing it and re-attempting to mount it, it took us the better part of five (5) hours to install the thing. A professional can probably install it in much less time, but we are "do-it-yourselfers" who don't understand the Asian version of English that is used in the instructions. We also had to improvise in areas where the instructions were not clear, were poorly written, or omitted important information. Finally, the product WORKS fine. However the over-stove light is not bright enough to be used for much more than a night light - even on HIGH - and does not disburse light evenly over the stove top. I would not recommend this product unless you are a competent do-it-yourselfer and have plenty of light over the stove.

Looks nice

ladyamydz 9/7/2017

Instructions were not very clear. One step by step directions, no mention of cutting template for back wall which you do not need to do, however on the template in 2 places in small English language lettering, it says trim edges of template. Also, Spanish directions overpowered the English directions on the template. Very distracting. We had already put one up over 12 years ago, so luckily we had some knowledge. Ours came with a broken door handle. The handle is plastic on a stainless microwave. We called for a new handle as that would be easier then taking the oven down and exchanging it. We had a very difficult time with the rep over the phone. This rep was very hard to understand. We were told we are getting a whole new door as the handle can't be replaced itself. We got a message today about a problem with our request, at least we think that is what the message said as again, the rep was very difficult to understand. We will be returning the call as soon as we can. We are still trying to get the handle issue resolved. You get what you pay for. This was a steal and works well so far. But is not a top of the line microwave.

Kodiak284 8/2/2017

Microwave looks sharp, price decent. Easy installation as the mounting bracket from my old Samsung was the same. The cord was in a different location so one small drill hole and up it went. Will know about quality after a few years, of course it works well now but time always tells on microwave quality and durability.

ATitus 7/22/2017

This Samsung over the range microwave fit perfectly by the dimensions given in the product description. There is plenty of room on the inside on the microwave and I love how the turntable sits flush with the bottom of the microwave making it easy to slide things in and out of it. I love the handle as it makes for easy opening/closing. I like the eco-mode so we can keep the display off and use less energy when the microwave is not in use. My husband installed it by himself, I'm sure he could have used some help holding it, but it is a fairly simple installation. The light above the stove is a little more dim than I expected, I will be replacing with brighter bulbs. The fan is not the quietest that I have heard but it is not obnoxiously loud either. I hope this helps someone!

Cheaply Made

LAT1987 7/6/2017

The microwave is very cheaply made. I haven't had it for more than 8 months and the handle broke off. I don't even have any kids who hang on it or anything, just two adults in the home. Oh and samsung won't cover it because it's "physical" damage. I should be able to open my microwave without worry.

idontwanttochooseanicknam 7/4/2017

This microwave cooks faster than any consumer grade microwave I have ever used. Although I have managed to overcook a few items, mostly when re-heating, by and large, it is rare. The available preset options are convenient as well.

BASIC Microwave/over the counter

warmitup 5/1/2017

I wanted a basic microwave that was an over the counter model. This one was much more challenging to install than I expected. cord was on the opposite side of old one and needed to set up a new mounting system. Bolts holes had to be re-drilled and picture for where they belonged didn't fit perfect. Only up a few days, it is holding and appears to work fine. easy to use.

Great Over-The-Range Microwave Oven

dtg5droid 4/18/2017

Very happy with this Microwave. I was very easy to install, it took about 1/2 hour. It's very large and matches the rest of my stainless appliances. The controls are very stright forward and easy to use. The digital display is a bright cobalt blue, which looks great. It's quite when running and seems to be very well built. The only change I would like to see would be the under the hood light color. It is a warm white and not the bright LED white I would like to see, but other than that it's a great purchase.

Max451 3/31/2017

Works well, looks great. My only small complaint is on the user interface. For example, it takes two buttons to turn the fan on low, and two buttons to run it for 30 seconds. Our old microwave did these with one button.

gg10 3/23/2017

The microwave works well. The key pad is very dark, so you need a light on it to see buttons. The turn table seems to make a thumping noise when turning, maybe just not perfectly flat. Would be nice if you could use the microwave when the timer is running. It does heat well, and exhaust is very good.

Super easy to install

BillTheBear 3/5/2017

This product was perhaps the easiest installation of an over the range microwave that I've ever done. Very few parts/tools required. Two of us lifted this into place and he held it while I fastened with screws, but in a pinch, I could have done this by myself. The bracket on the back wall held most of the weight, so I could have held it in place with one hand and inserted the screws with the other. This has your basic microwave features. Nothing fancy, but the price and roominess of this microwave make it a great bargain.
