"I am sorry to hear that you have experienced a "paint peeling" problem with your Daewoo Microwave Oven. I would like to assure you that all our products are factory quality controlled before distribution, and we do not have any design or manufacturing faults with any of our microwave ovens.
I can confirm that "paint peeling" can occur in any microwave oven that has an enamel interior cavity. We have tested many ovens over the last 15 years with this fault, and on each occasion it has been proved that the cause is due to the liquid condensation not being wiped dry from the cavity well underneath the glass plate after each use. If this does not get wiped dry after each use then the weight of the food on the plate pressing down on the rotating ring means that when the wheels of the rotating ring run through the moisture it causes friction, and ultimately the enamel to start lifting and coming away. In order to repair the oven it would require a replacement interior cavity, which is an expensive repair, and would not prove to be cost-effective. "
I pointed out that this does not explain rust on the door. I also do not think the instruction manual says you have to wipe the area under the turntable every time you use the oven.
I await their response.
INTERNAL measurements Width 11", Depth 11", Height 8.25" in centre.
Hope this helps, as when I was buying, I needed the internal dimensions but they weren't given, so I had to take a chance, but glad I did.
My initial impression of this microwave was extremely positive. Plus points:
- Looks stylish
- Does a good job of heating things up
- Defrost programmes, which I use extensively, work well
I use the microwave every day, usually once in the morning for making porridge, and probably 3-4 times per week in the evening to heat up food. Occasionally I use it to heat up drinks, but this is fairly rare.
One problem that became apparent very quickly was condensation. The inside of the unit would remain dry but, gradually, a pool of water will collect underneath it, which will need to be periodically mopped up. This was kind of an annoyance, but not the end of the world. I should say the microwave was situated in a well ventilated area, with plenty of room all round, including behind and above.
However, after a few months I was heating something up and became aware of a clunking noise coming from the oven whilst I was in the next room - the kind of sound a microwave makes when the glass plate isn't properly seated on the rota. However, when I went to reseat the plate what I actually found was that the paint/enamel underneath the plate was bubbling up, and rust was coming through underneath, hence the plate wasn't able to rotate smoothly. This suggests that condensation actually collects inside the case and causes the oven to corrode from the inside out, not just that condensation collects on the surface under the unit as I'd originally thought.
Granted, it's a fairly cheap microwave, but I think that's pretty poor: bear in mind this all happened within one year of purchase.
There is one other irritation with this microwave that turned into a major annoyance: once it's finished, it beeps every minute until you either open the door or hit the Cancel button. As far as I can tell, there's no way to stop this. It's just completely unnecessary, not to mention extremely infuriating, particularly at night, when you're on the phone, when you've gone to the loo whilst heating something up, when you're defrosting something whilst preparing the rest of a meal, etc., etc. There is no need for a kitchen appliance to nag you, and I really don't appreciate them when they do.
Overall then, an inexpensive and effective microwave marred by poor quality and very irritating beeping behaviour. I suppose you get what you pay for, but I'd recommend you look elsewhere.
There ""ain't a mention" of (the lack of)the sublimely obvious .. removing your supper half-way through - to stir the thing !? So all the things from (Soup to whatever) needing a stir, you are going to have to be patient --- and wait .. cos there is'nt gonna be a 'ding' to (Remind you when). Which is pretty stupid!
So you'll it seems -- That all the Buttons for this & that, are redundant! (I emailed Daewoo .. getting nothing but a thank you for asking reply)
Perhaps I'm lacking the savvy to to find a work-around,
but one thing for sure - without a 'ding' to say it's "stir time" I'm gonna have to use it as a basic microwave. Full marks on this (so far). The start button is also a (30 Seconds a press). Likewise the (Micro Power button)each press = minus 10% power.
The Dial/knob is a 'touch' one. finis (Des Handley, Essex)
