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.

Cracked

Doll 9/25/2021

the microwave is mounted above the stove. we use it as intended. the microwave works but the door cracked after a couple months of owning the microwave. the bottom of the handle cracked next and the handle is on the verge of falling off. this should not happen.

This Micorwave will let you down very soon!

Sail Jian 9/13/2021

i bought this microwave and within the first 3 months or so, it stopped working. since i had bought it from best buy and was within warranty, they replaced it with a new one. two years later, this has stopped working again. like last time, this has stopped heating up. i'd strongly recommend not to buy any samsung appliances. i had similar problem with the samsung fridge (stopped cooling off, so ended up having a new fridge delivered within first 6 months of purchase). i'm buying a whirlpool this time. a bit expensive, but it last a lot longer.

2 Broken Handles

teddy 8/4/2021

purchased 2 of these same microwaves and in both cases the handles have completely broken off. cheaply made product and what's worse is samsung won't stand by it. do yourself a favor, buy another product, or at the very least get an extended warranty

Very Disappointed

Annette 8/4/2021

i didn't need a fancy m/w so this one fit the bill-an exhaust fan over my range, something in which to make popcorn, steam veggies and melt butter. installed yesterday by my contractor, tried it out, seemed ok and the next day it started not heating things up. unless i stand there and hold the door closed. i'll be calling tech support, but i really thought i could get a couple years of use, not a couple of days.

Broken Handle

Erika 3/17/2021

like many others, the cheap plastic handle has broken off after a short period of use. i wish i woukdve read the reviews on the product first as this seems to be a very common issue. i see where they say you can order replcement parts but my husband and i looked into buying the new handle and the only reason we havent yet is because from the looks of it you have to tear the whole microwave apart in order to install a new handle :( it looks very complicated. very disappointed in the quality of the handle, but the rest of the product has worked as it should for us. if the handle wasnt so cheap id recommend this product, but buyer beware you'll probably be stuck with fixing the handle sooner rather than later if you choose this product.

Cheap Plastic

Trevor 3/15/2021

after 6 months of occasional use the door handle broke off. looked like the plastic had melted at the connection point. the microwave came with a brand new house i purchased in june 2020. apparently the warranty expired in april 2020. samsung does not stand behind its products.

Garbage

Trevor 3/15/2021

Just talked to support. Turns out the warranty is from manufacture date and has nothing to do with when you buy the product. So it was expired before I purchased it. They wanted $180 to fix a broken handle on a $200 microwave. Samsung is a bunch of clowns thanks for your service. Can't wait to get a reply from Samsung cares so I can show my friends and laugh.

Wouldn't puchase again

MAYERS 3/6/2021

ive had this microwave 2.5 years and it has always been pretty reliable. recently the se error showed so i looked it up on the internet. seemed pretty straight forward how to fix it. we did what everyone suggested, cleaning connections etc. still won't work. was going to purchase just a replacement control panel ( the whole thing) so i could just plug it up and be on my way. cant find just the control panel. can find the control board and different pieces but not the entire thing. i don't know what the problem is and don't want to keep buying pieces until i find out what is wrong. i used to have a cheap hotpoint that lasted me 8 years until i got rid of it because it was ugly. i buy this fancy pretty samsung and it doesn't even last 3 years. sad. no more samsungs for me.

cheyenna r 2/21/2021

do not waste your money on this microwave! it may look nice but you will be disappointed...where should i start.....the glass plate underneath which lights up the stove gets sooo hot it cracks... (this has already happened 2x) you also cannot use the microwave if you are using the timer.... the turntable often makes noise as well. the samsung label is glued on and has started to peel off ......

Magnetron failed with in 1.5 years

vijay 2/18/2021

microwave slowly stopped heating food. initially it was hit or miss, then to a limited temperature and then completely stopped. as it's out of warranty, repair estimate was around $400+ :d

Performs like a 2-300W microwave, not 1000W.

ik8sqi 2/10/2021

do not buy this model. it's advertised as 1000w, but it is nowhere close to that. according to the usda (https://ask.usda.gov/s/article/how-do-you-determine-the-wattage-of-your-microwave-oven), an ice-cold cup of water should boil in about 2 minutes with a 1000w oven. this samsung instead took a whopping 5 minutes 45 seconds to bring water to boil, and that's even though it started at 25c and not ice cold. the video is at https://youtu.be/9fuip7iyndy

The price

Ran Furman 10/14/2020

i bought this model after my previous samsung range stopped warming the food (about 3 years after i purchased it). i gave samsung another chance mainly since i didnt want to deal with anchoring a different range to the wall. i got a product without the range filters and with circuits issue (the microwave start running automatically as soon as i close the door, the 30 senconds option doesnt work etc. ) . i tried to message/chat with a representative online but no one is answering. i typically trust samsung with other products (my tv, my dishwasher) so this is really frustrating.

My Second Microwave

TMTM 9/12/2020

i bought all new samsung appliances for a kitchen/laundry remodel. this is my second microwave. the first one failed within two years (magnetron failure) and i was told that the warranty only covered 1 year. this new replacement model is under two years old and the handle broke off (design defect in my opinion as it is made of plastic and sits above the gas range!). i am trying to order a handle replacement, but the website says it does no come with the two screws needed to install it! in order to get the screws, you need to purchase a door assembly. very frustrating to say the least.

Stopped working after a year

Kyle 7/17/2020

product stopped working soon after warranty ended. as many others, microwave is making a buzzing noise but not heating. will not send part to fix unless service is set up through samsung. service would cost more than the appliance itself. was going to use samsung appliances for flips, but definitely not after this experience. its a shame because samsung makes great tv's.

SARAAI GALAN 7/15/2020

this product was dissapointing, i had upgraded from one of the old style table microwaves in which was perfectly functional for 7+ years. this microwave worked oerfectly fine for two whole years. right at the 2 year mark, the microwave had issues turning on, and smelled like something was burning every time i attempted to use it.

Cheap handle breaks off from use.

Patrick 6/25/2020

cheap plastic handle breaks off completely from regular use, and its impossible to reattach with gorilla glue. samsung says warranty expires 12months after manufacture, not purchase, and will not fix unless you pay more than the cost of the microwave. also, product repeatedly breaks the circuit breaker.
