    • I know our one before that lasted for around 20 years my husband bought it when he first moved out of his parents house.

    • All new appliances seem to be that way. We had a twenty year old refrigerator and stove we replaced and three years later both new ones broke.

  • ๐Ÿ˜‚ This made me laugh thanks. My nana needed a microwave years ago back in 2012 and I bought a cheap one to fulfil its purpose and lord behold in 2018 its still working. I think is deawoe

  • The one we have at my dad's place has been working for at least 15 years. Of course that's been made before they started making electronics to fall apart after a few years to make more money. Mine has been working flawlessly for 3 years, I'm hoping to get at least a couple years more.

  • The warranty expired either the day your microwave went down or the week before lol
    The new microwaves you're lucky to get a few years out of it.
    I inherited my grandma's microwave, the thing was a big as the fridge i swear but it lasted well over 20 years!

  • Interesting timing for this question.

    My gal mentioned only yesterday that ours was making a strange noise. We've had it for about six years, I think?

    If it goes, it goes. I didn't pay for it, a tenant left it behind, unused, which was one of the better freebies I've had!

    But to answer your question, two years sounds pretty disappointing!

  • Depends on how often you use it, so Iโ€™m not sure how to predict it. I donโ€™t remember the last time I needed a new one, though.

  • Just as long as the warranty goes. Any more is a bonus.
