FFCE1638LB is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Buy This microwave is plenty big. It takes up and good bit of counter space. So I'm glad I didn't buy the larger size. It has been a good one so far. It has a loud beep. I'm hoping this one will last a good while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's not just another pretty face This microwave is very nice to look at but it also is a powerhouse addition to any kitchen. It's easy to use, simple to clean and very intuitive in use. Everything from changing the power settings to setting the timer, this is the microwave you have been looking for all along.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good office unit We use this microwave for our office. Color is nice and the buttons are easy to use and the unit heats well and is very dependable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BEEPING Is there a way to stop the beeping. We use this in our very small cooking area at work and the beeping drives the ladies in the office crazy. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE E-mail me back and let me know if the beeper can be unplugged/turned off, before I decide to tear it apart myself and find out. It would be nice if you would put a reply on this site so others who read these might have an answer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Control Panel and Oven Light too dark. I purchased this microwave because of the size and I liked the design. I am very disappointed with the dark Control Panel and Oven Light. At first I had to use a flash light to figure out the buttons. The inside oven light is not sufficient when in use or when cleaning. Other than that it still works well. I can put up with the constant beeping if only the lights were brighter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor Microwave Software (Beeping) I purchased this microwave to replace my old microwave which stopped working. The new one was a demo model so I got it for a good price. I was looking specifically for an Frigidare because my last microwave which lasted more than 20 years was a Frigidare and I was extremely happy with it. I don't know what the person who wrote the software for this microwave was thinking when they thought it would be a good idea to have the microwave keep beeping after the cooking was done. This is the most annoying feature of this microwave and will be responsible for the loss of customers. The second thing is that my old Frigidare microwave allowed me to run the timer and the microwave at the same time. This microwave does not. Many times I want to time something and cook something in the microwave at the same time. I don't understand why this feature was omitted. Other than these two issues, the microwave works good and I am happy enough with it. I am not planning to get rid of it but if I had known about these two flaws prior to purchasing the microwave I would not have bought this one. It would be nice if I could get an upgrade to the software the way you can with many things such as computer printers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Chronic beeping I agree with Barbara's above comments. It is entirely impossible to multi-task in the kitchen! Once the cooking is completed, the series of beeps is every 7 seconds until I must drop everything in order to silence the maddening non-stop beeping. It would be desirable only if it would give a series of beeps once indicating that the cooking had completed. I would recommend this microwave to only my worst enemy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beeping that does not quit I have owned Microwaves since they first came out and have used different brands at different places - work break rooms, vending machine kiosoks etc. This is the first one that when done, it keeps beeping and beeping and beeping. I have read & re-read the manual and can not find where I can keep this from happening. I used to have a microwave that you could enter a number on the key pad after plugging in the unit to disable the beeping. This one beeps three times, stops, and then keeps doing this over and over, it will not stop beeping. This is very, very annoying. One can not always stop other kitchen tasks right away to just shut the microwave up. I would really, really like a solution other than having to throw it away. I would not like to inflict this on anyone else. I would like a reply to this as I have been unable to contact you by telephone as I work the same hours Mon-Fri during the same hours as your office is only available. Barbara J. Frick
