  • A Good Microwave for a Good Price

    Dec 14, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Price, overall looks, size and ease of use
    Cons: At altitude, auto settings don't work so hot.

    Summary: I have learned several things since I started in the business of appliances. Most importantly I have learned that price is a good place to start for quality. They don’t always go hand in hand but there is a relationship. This machine is not only a ... read more

  • My Maytag Microwave Model No. MMV4205BAW quit working after thirteen months. What a disapointment.

    Pros: Affordable price. Sleek design. Roomy interior. Turn table. Easy to operate. Accurate cooking times.
    Cons: Quit after 13 months. I expected more from a product made by this respected company.

    Summary: I bought this Maytag microwave oven (model No. MMV4205BAW) at Home Depot on 09/28/2008 after researching online and reading some good reviews. A hot water heater in my attic burst (what crazy architect decided this location was a good idea), ... read more

  • Maytag MMV4205 - overcooks and too hot

    May 26, 2009 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Built in fan and light
    Large capacity
    Cons: Downlight too dim
    Too much power--overcooks most foods
    Presets too complicated

    Summary: I bought this Maytag microwave from Sears two years ago and have still not gotten used to the heat output.  When heating tomato sauce, the sauce bumps out of the container, even when using a very low setting.  I almost never use the highest ... read more

    Pros: Good Looking....but it doesn't matter.
    Cons: Underhood lamp issue......Haven't had it long enough to see others yet.

    Summary: We bought this microwave along with a Maytag Gas Range and Maytag Refrigerator when we remodeled our kitchen this past summer.  We bought matching stainless appliances because of their looks, which was a mistake.  And Maytag brand for what the ... read more

    Summary: We bought this microwave from Home Depot in February 2007. It stopped working occasionally (on and off) in December 2007 and completely stopped working in April 2008. Problem: When I entered cook time and pressed "Start", within two seconds, system ... read more

  • Microwave? Yes. Fan & light? NO!

    Mar 3, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks nice, microwave works ok
    Cons: The range hood fan & light are both totally useless

    Summary: Our old microwave died after a couple years, and the range hood over the stove didn't work, so when I saw the Maytag over the range microwave w/vent hood, it sounded great. What a great idea, I'd save space on the counter and get a new over the range ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Attractive, inexpensive, easy to use
    Cons: Short life expectancy--5 to 6 months!!!

    Summary: I have always trusted Maytag, so I filled my NEW kitchen with Maytag appliances. Unbelievably, I'm now on my third Maytag MMV4205 microwave in eleven months! The first died suddenly after five months; the second had three or four visits trying to ... read more

    Pros: Cooks well and quicker than other microwaves. Is attractive.
    Cons: Sound is too low to hear. Easy to overcook foods.

    Summary: We purchased this microwave in a Bisque color to match the new Maytag oven we installed during a complete Kitchen remodel, September 2006. It cooks very quickly, which is not a bad thing. The directions on the backs of food packages should be adjusted ... read more

    Pros: Pretty LCD panel.
    Cons: See above. Got to love outsourcing and impersonal service.

    Summary: If installing the unit yourself beware - before you begin templating, drilling, sawing, measuring, mounting, and preparing, check to see if the factory's provided 1/4 bolts fit into the unit's nuts. The Indonesian factory likes to send out units with 6 ... read more

    Pros: Very powerful oven. Appearance is nice and clean.
    Cons: For every cooking option button there is at LEAST one sub-menu. Too much effort!

    Summary: We purchased this oven about 2 months ago. About two weeks after first use I glanced underneath and saw that the glass cover on the light was cracked in many pieces. We were fairly sure we hadn't done the damage during installation of the oven, but we ... read more

    Pros: Love the melting, softening and defrosting programming.  Makes perfect popcorn.

    Pros: decent price, good functions
    Cons: Reliability, Service

    Summary: My Maytag over the range died after about 22 months. Paid $75 for a service call and they eventually replaced the key pad several weeks later. That did not fix the problem and they wanted another $150 to open the whole unit up for a repair that they ... read more

    Pros: Oven ok for as long as it worked.
    Cons: Only worked for 13 months. Can't get service techs to honor an appointment.

    Summary: Loved the MMV4205 until it blew out after only 13 months - just after the warranty expired. The Maytag service company is the worst. After I paid for the initial estimate, they missed the follow up appointments and never came back. I'll NEVER buy ... read more
