Comment:
The only complaint I have, and apparently several other owners also, is the door handle. Had this for about a year, love it but it is getting more and more difficult to open. I have searched for parts suppliers or repair shops and can find nothing. I guess when it gives out I'll take it apart and rig something to make it work.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I owned the Panasonic NN-H765wfx (looks exactly the same as this model). Same 1250 watts, same control panel. We Loved it. The only thing is, we owned it for 3 years and 9 months and it just died. It gave us the code H97 which means the magnetron malfunctioned/broke. It would cost more to fix than to replace.<br /><br />So even though I liked the microwave, I'll try another brand this time. Is it too much to ask for a microwave to last for more than 4 years????

Comment:
After only a year, the door latch doesn't always work which means the microwave won't work. I have to open and close the door ten times before it clicks in and the microwave goes on. Many times it doesn't ever go on. I am so disappointed.
