If you have had a good experience and have purchased in the last 5 years, I want to know of your experience to the good. What to avoid is also important. I am overwhelmed with all the curated reviews that are not necessarily true. Any ideas?

I have had an excellent experience with the Panasonic brand. I bought my second microwave oven 4 years ago and it works flawlessly. Many years ago, I owned another Panasonic model which worked without any problem for several years until I sold it with the house that I was departing from.

I recommend their products without any hesitation. As a matter of fact, I'm using one of their 10 year old 50 inch plasma TV set which still works like a new one.

GE and Panasonic are rated very well by Consumers Union.

Did yours stop working? If so, did it go dark, or just stop heating food? If it went dark, unplug it and check the fuse and if the lights/display still illuminate, it could be a bad magnetron- MCM and other companies sell them- look for a part number and google that to find a replacement.

I have a Sanyo microwave oven from the late-'80s and it still works great. Never had a problem with it. It would be nice if it had a spinning turntable, though.

I am trying to figure out replacement is an issue. The door latch is sticking and prevents the operation of my microwave. I have been rapping the door with my fist to get the latch to seat. It’s other wise in working order.

That could just need an adjustment- you might be able to look online for a manual that shows the latch assembly. The cover probably needs to come off to access the screws.
