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.

Not Durable

Very Unsatisfied 3/26/2019

We bought this about 15 months ago and all of a sudden it is not heating. because it is out of warranty it Samsung Repair is asking $160 plus parts cost plus taxes to fix it. In addition they want us to get an installer to have it removed and reinstall. Does not seem to be a durable product if it breaks down within such short use.

Poor design, viewing window, light, interior color

woundedduck 3/10/2019

Bought yesterday, installed last night, taking back to Lowes today. My wife is 5'2", I am 5'7", she can't see interior unless standing on toes, I have a little bit more visibility, but can't see down far enough to see the rotating plate or food on it, say a plate of nachos w/cheese to see if the cheese is melted. The area for viewing the interior is above the fancy looking, installed in the glass front panel along the bottom, is approx 4" x 18", 4". The programming touch-screen portion of the glass front is opaque. The interior light (one) is not bright enough to clearly see the interior while food is cooking, and the unit we bought is the stainless steel black with a dark grey/black interior - should have a white interior for increased visibility into the unit. Too dark to make out nearly anything from the outside looking in. Only used it to test unit by cooking a glass of water to a boil, could not see water or steam. Would not buy another one like it.

Robertsm 2/3/2019

Have had the microwave for a few months. Out of nowhere it turns on by itself and have to unplug it to shut it off. Emailed samsung a week ago and still no response. Upset because I buy samsung everything.

Nice looking Microwave

gjmdeputy 10/31/2018

The main thing that was a big seller was that there is no handle to get in the way. The one downside to this microwave are the numbered buttons are hard to push. I find myself repeatedly pushing a number trying to get it to show up on the display.

Hotlanta 10/31/2018

I bought the microwave about 3 months ago. I love the oven vent fans. They're 10 times more powerful that the standard oven vent fans. My only complaint is that I'm not able to adjust the cooking power level. I have to add about 10% more time to cook than my Samsung counter top microwave. Love the extra large cooking space.

Jim Bob 8/26/2018

this is my my first Samsung appliance and we love everything from the cook-top lights to the cooking features and functions. This is the third over the range microwave in 16 years and after much research my wife and I agreed on this model and have never looked back. we like it so much I am now looking for a Samsung range to match.

Buyer Beware!!!!

FrustratedBuyer84 8/14/2018

Purchased this microwave as a replacement unit for my original Samsung OTR microwave, that original unit caught FIRE!!! So i contacted Samsung sent in the photos and received my money to purchase another microwave. So I then purchased this unit, I had it for exactly 2 months and the exhaust vent stopped working!! Again I contacted Samsung and they said again "We are so sorry for this inconvenience, we will issue you another refund. So overall I wish i had NEVER purchased all my appliances from Samsung. I regret it so much. So many headaches and back and forth with the ticket numbers. This company needs to get it together and stop making such cheap products.

Great Microwave, but very dim Cooktop lights

VicKe 7/19/2018

Installed this Over the Range Microwave, along with a complete set of Samsung kitchen appliances, a few days ago and everything seems to work well except for the cooktop lights on the bottom of the microwave. The two cooktop lights (see photo) do not provide enough light to adequately and safely light the cooktop. It appears the lights are a proprietary part and I've been unable to find upgrade LED units that will provide more light. I've read other reviews that claim the cooktop lights are very bright which makes me wonder if my unit is defective, or possibly the lights have been redesigned recently.

Reheats pasta like it's fresh!

SeansWife 6/18/2018

I was very impressed with its ability to reheat pasta. Microwaved pasta always turns out so dry and sticky, but this microwave reheats pasta almost like it was made fresh. It takes a lot of opening and closing to pick the correct buttons (press reheat, open door, find the # for pasta, close door, etc) but the result is very worth it. The door is very large but if you stand at the right corner where it opens it is not an issue as must people have described. The light underneath is very bright and useful when cooking on the stove below and there are different setting of brightness. My husband loves using the popcorn button feature. My only complaint is that when frying something on the stove below the grease does splatter up on to the microwave and it needs to be wiped a few times with a soapy dishcloth to get the appliance looking shiny and new again and when wiping the front the buttons are easily pressed.

Only 1100 watts of power

Samsdude 3/25/2018

1100 Watts, thought it was more powerful but doing okay. Have had it 6 months & it is still working very well. Not one problem so far. After reading some of the bad reviews I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this will be one of the good ones & keep on working for years. Have not used many of the functions yet. The popcorn function works but it needs to stop popping a little sooner . if you let it go to auto stop it slightly burns some of the kernels. I stop it with about 20 seconds left on the timer & the popped corn is perfect. It is a very nice design & fits in well with our other black Samsung appliances. I'll send another review after we have owned this for a year. Hopefully it will still be positive.

Great style, still leaning how to use it

Mick54321 2/8/2018

We haven't used all the features (we may never...many of the presets are things we don't do), but the features are there if we decide to. We had our previous microwave for 10 years, so the new one will take some getting used to. One minor thing is that the controls aren't as sensitive as we are used to. I'm sure we'll adjust to that without a problem.

Quality control is horrible

Lightguytim 12/30/2017

I am now returning my second one. The first one had the quick start label inside of the door put on upside down. After 3 calls, one email, and a call to their parts distributor they said they do not sell labels and could not send me one. When we went to install the second one the nut on the top of the microwave came off causing the microwave to be stuck. I had to cut the bolt off to remove it.
