Terrible

Easily the worst microwave I have ever used. Have owned this for a month now since my neo chef broke and it has not impressed me once. In fact, every night when I go to defrost my dogs dinner (which used to take 25min and 36 Seconds in my lg neochef) now takes 40 minutes. And that's if it's evenly defrosted the first time. Despite its claims to reheat evenly it fails miserably to do this even on the time setting. I have adjusted the power level to high which I expect to nuke whatever I put in there in 30s-1m still comes out half frozen after 2 mins. Terrible piece of hardware. Wouldn't recommend. Show details

Its a good unit overall, apart from the door

The door on this microwave requires either 2 hands to open it (1 hand to press the button and 1 hand to physically open it)
Or multiple presses of the door button.
I took the oven back to the good guys after about 2 months after buying it new. The good guys sent it away for 6 weeks to be repaired (they gave me a loaner microwave, which was actually better than mine)!!!!!!!.
After picking up the microwave after it had a new door fitted, it lasted a week before the door began its old tricks.
I didn't take it back again because I didn't want to go through all of that again. I am putting up with it but it is so frustrating and annoying.
I also don't like where the operational buttons are located on the panel.
Worst microwave I've ever had Show details

Faulty x2

We have repeatedly had issues with this microwave, within 6 months of buying, despite taking it to be fixed. Samsung make it near impossible to get a replacement or refund. Terrible service, terrible product. Show details

Blew up after 3 months

Had to return the first one due to a wobbling plate. Appeared to be a manufacturing error.
Replacement one blew up in less than 3 months. Started making a burning smell and the outside/underside near the inverter got really hot.
Top marks to Good Guys for their very helpful customer service and exchange/replacement policy.
Trying a different brand now. Show details

Avoid!

We have had this unit less than a year and it has stopped heating food, it sounds like it is going to explode.

I have lodged a warranty claim in August this year and have gotten absolutely no where with Samsung, this has clearly gone in the 'too hard' basket.
My biggest piece of advice is to avoid this particular product and any home appliance made by Samsung! Show details

Poor Turntable Function!

The Turntable does not sit on roller ring evenly, so it shakes when it turns and it was correctly installed, this was straight out of the box.
The interior light is very dull.
Microwave returned to Appliances OnLine and replaced with a Westinghouse! Show details

not very good

we've owned this, just over 2 1/2 years & the open button has gone! short while after getting it, the coating over some of the buttons, started to bubble, so harder to see them...its a very dark microwave when on, so hard to see & food took much longer to cook, than our previous less powerful microwave. we bought it from appliances online & see, its still available, i'd stay well clear from it! never again! that's not long enough for a microwave to last & while, we could try to get some warranty under the government rules, we cant be bothered! just dont like it! a huge no! stay well clear of it! Show details

10 years on we did a like for like replacement

We replaced our old Samsung 40 litre microwave (made on 2008) which we have been using for 10+ years with the same model (2021 version) because it has a large internal area, fits our microwave compartment perfectly, is easy to operate, defrosts & cooks to our satisfaction.

We compared the other brands, their features & reviews before going for the same oven but 13 years newer, all the features are identical, now that’s a strong recommendation.

We replaced because the door on the old oven was sticking. Show details

It was great until it didn;t work tonight !

It's about 4 weeks old and has worked well - mainly for re- heating. Tonight using the timer function, it died. We unplugged it and moved it to a bench, plugged it into a power point and no power at all. It was warm to hot to touch. We left it for 30 mins and let it cool, then tried again - it started. So why is it over heating on the timer function?  Show details

Died after 3.5 years. Don't recommend

Microwave purchased 3.5 years ago from Appliances Online. It has had moderate useage during that time and was reliable at heating food, doing the job quite well. Had no problems with how it worked.
However, it has just stopped working completely and won't turn on.

We are disappointed and are looking for a new microwave that isn't this model... won't be buying again. Show details

Great microwave

Good features, ability to turn sound off and custom cook button are the standouts. Only downside so far is the door opening button sometimes sticks in but it might just need a clean. Would buy again. Show reply

An essential appliance

Excellent for on the go use at the office. Stainless steel build so cleaning with a sponge is an ease. Also eats food evenly unlike a different branded microwave oven we purchased beforehand. Show details ·  1

Does this microwave have a child lock feature??

I've tried holding "0" and then pressed "2" but this doesn't work...

Hey Mark, thanks for letting us know about this. I would suggest calling Samsung and getting their level 2 techs to assist you. Usually what you have done, should work but if it isn't then there may be other factors to it.
