Expected more!We bought this microwave in Sept. 2012 as a replacement for our previous Frigidaire Gallery Microwave that died after 7 years of use. This one did not even last 4 years! We built our custom home in 2005 and outfitted it solely with Frigidaire Gallery Products. All appliances are still going strong however, we will now be purchasing our 3rd microwave! This one also had an annoying beeping that continually beeped to tell you that the item being cooked was done. There was no way to change this annoying feature. We also had to have a repair technician out within the first month because of a faulty door latch mechanism. This microwave was a lemon from the get go.

We love our new Frigidaire microwaveIt has a great combination of features. What we love: Press one button (1 thru 6), wait "one Mississippi", and the unit turns on and runs that number of minutes. Love it; surprisingly, not all microwaves have this feature. And those that DO have this feature require you to press the "enter time" button before you press 1 thru 6 if you are entering a multi-digit cooking time. The FGMO205KF model is intuitive - if you press a sequence of numbers (e.g.: 3 - 4 - 5) then it figures out that you wanted 3 min & 45 sec. We also like that it stops beeping when you open the door. Again, am surprised that not all microwaves have this feature.

powerful yet smallcompact and powerful
small footprint, quite powerful
mostly use in "manual" mode (set time and power level), which works well for me; the preset heating/cooking buttons do not provide the applicability or flexibility I need
love the door, no handle and easy to use, also that it has a hard stop at about 90 degrees which keeps it from interfering with nearby appliances
almost impossible to read the inside "help" instructions, they are useless unless in broad daylight
surface is easy to clean
wish power button functioned in all modes, it does not when using the quick settings [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Brand new microwave doesn't workThe house I bought had new Frigidaire Gallery appliances, including this microwave. Unfortunately I didn't look closely before buying the house and didn't realize the microwave doesn't work! If you try to run it, the timer goes down but the plate doesn't turn and it does not heat at all. :/ Perhaps a faulty door switch from what I understand.
Also agree with the reviewer below that the door is hard to open; when I hit the open button it doesn't really pop open I need to pry it open.
Overall a big disappointment.

Broken door 101 from
after two weeks I'm second-guessing my purchaseInstallation was simple and easy. Features seemed straightforward and basic which is what I was looking for. However, the most basic function of the microwave has continued to fail. We have trouble opening the door. It rarely opens by pushing the button. It takes two hands to open. Have already had service technician out once who could not fix it. And now investigating next steps. if we could fix the door, I would love to keep the product.

Constant problems with the door.I love the majority of this microwave. The features are fabulous and do a great job. But we've had constant door problems and even more problems getting the door fixed. The first one we received wouldn't even open. At all. Sent it back and the second worked fine for a few months, but now this door won't open without using two hands and really wiggling the actual door from below. Our case has been sent to a local place that is approved to work on them, but it's been 4 weeks and many unreturned calls to get them out here. If it weren't for the door and poor handling of it, this would easily be a 5 star product.

Nice look Microwave but opening the door failsBrand new microwave and the door has intermittent issues opening. It happens randomly throughout the day. I chatted with support and they want to send a technician out. I originally agreed then they cautioned it with... if the tech doesn't find an issue with the microwave, then they will charge me for the service. Because it's intermittent, I didn't want to take the risk of them telling me nothing is wrong and that this is "normal." Check out youtube video attached. Others have the same problem for brand new or used units. Fix your stuff Frigidaire! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

One Major Flaw! I can't open the door!Great microwave with one flaw
Bought it to replace a 20 year old microwave which did a fine job. This one does everything a microwave should do but has one near fatal flaw. The door only opens after you hit the push button at least 2 times, sometimes more. My husband and I have made sure the mounting system is level and we can't figure out why the door will not open. It seems like the latches are too strong for the opening mechanism. The first time you push the opening button, the door opens part way but not enough to open; so you have to hit the opening button again. it's very frustrating for a new product to not work properly.
