whirlpool wmh2175xvb-2 manufactured january 2011
on October 20, 2013
I bought my whirlpool microwave, model wmh2175xvb-2(must be revised version of the one everyone is complaining about and I paid around $230 for this one) that shows manufactured in January of 2011, in June of 2011 when I remodeled my kitchen. The only problem I have had with it is replacing the light bulb a couple times, the one underneath which lights over the stove. Other than that it has worked very well. I was told by someone I know who is a technician that if you have any metal inside the microwaves, like a rack, or even screws that hold up the rack, to remove it all because metal tends to damage the microwaves even though most of them come with racks and screws. I removed my rack after purchasing the microwave because it just got in the way but have never taken the screws out till recently only because I finally remembered and got around to it. I give the microwave 5 stars because even though I have replaced the bulb a couple times I usually program the light to come on just before dark every night and go off around 11pm so the bulbs have seen their share of wear.
