    May not install as expected.

    WARNING: If you install this MW according to the MFG directions, you may not be able to open the door! Here's the issue.

    The entire front face is hinged as the door, and it wraps around on the left such that the hinge itself is set back from the front plane of the door. In order for the "door" to open, the entire unit must be set far enough forward for the hinge-proper to clear the front of the adjacent cabinet.

    This is not stated in any of the manuals, which actually depict it being installed with the front panel flush with the front plane of the adjacent cabinets. Again, this will not work. It must stick out far enough for the hinge to clear the adjacent cabinet. (Unless you have several inches of open space to the left of the unit.)

    Haier lists the depth of the MW at 16.5". IF your upper cabinets are a so-called "standard" 12" deep, it may install and operate as expected (though its front will not be flush with the plane of your cabinets - which you may or may not care about in terms of looks). If your upper cabinets are deeper (mine are 15" plus doors), it will be necessary to customize the mounting, and adapt the templates, to compensate.

    Also note that if the fan is used in recirculating mode, there is a charcoal filter which Haier recommends be replaced at least once every 6 months. But that filter cannot be accessed without uninstalling the unit, as you must remove the top cover of the MW to change the filter.

    Unfortunately there are few alternatives for a 24"-wide over-range microwave, and this one offers a nice range of features. I am rating it 3-stars because I haven't had it in use yet, to judge its performance as an appliance. So 2-stars off for the design problems and bad installation info; 3-stars for giving it the benefit of the doubt on performance.

    I would CONDITIONALLY recommend this to a friend.

    This microwave works great! But....I think it takes up so much space compared to others I’ve seen since I bought this one. It has the same capacity as the others on the inside, but the overall width is bigger.

    Very Sharp Microwave

    I've only had this microwave for a few weeks now but so far I'm very impressed. It's the most well thought out cabinet microwave available. With the flip out controls it's not necessary to get on your knees to program it like most other drawer microwaves this alone make it a much better design. The other thing that strikes you right away is the lack of handles so you don't have to worry about matching handles with your other kitchen appliances. All in all, I'd say it's a great microwave.

    nice quality microwave

    this sits above my Viking range/oven. When the oven produces alot of heat which is detected by the lower part of this microwave it automatically turns on the fan to cool off. It's a great feature ,but its very loud and sometimes runs for about 30 minutes after the oven is off, a little annoying.

    Clean design and spacious

    The microwave is vey spacious and efficient. It replaced a Sharp one that we had from 2002. It seems like a replica of the original design which filled our space perfectly. The only complaint we have is that the popcorn burns when using the one touch popcorn button. Otherwise it is a clean design and fits our needs.
