I bought this a few weeks ago to replace another GE over the range microwave. It is much quieter than my old microwave. I was specifically looking for the convenience buttons where you push 1 to 6 and it automatically starts. No looking for the "time" button, pushing the needed time and then looking for "start". If you haven't tried this it is very nice. It has a nice light to illuminate the cooktop. The vent fan doesn't seem to be as strong as my previous microwave, I must turn the vent on when opening my hot over or the rising heat sets the smoke detector off. I've had to turn it on for about half a minute before opening the oven to keep the detector from going off. I've noticed some steam build up on the inside of the microwave, the door fogs up. Overall I'm very happy with it, installation was easy with 2 people getting it onto the template on the wall. Pay attention to the venting, if it is recirculated Vs inside or outside venting you will most likely have to turn the fan from an outside venting position to the inside. A few simple screws, a 90 degree turn and you're good to go.

I bought this microwave not realizing that the control panel was the same color as the front door. You can barely see the numbers, etc with all the lights on and not At ALL any other time. Day time or whatever. If it hadn't been mounted over the stove I would have taken it back to store. The light on the stove is useless. You can't see at all to cook. Right now I have a lamp shinning on the burners. I have ordered brighter lights to put in and hopefully I will be able to see to cook. I have never had this kind of problem before and am very disappointed that I am stuck with this appliance.

Comments about GE 1.7 Cu. Ft. Stainless Steel Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:
We replaced our white appliances with stainless steel appliances this past summer and have been please with this microwave. Easy to keep clean, works great, and looks so good in our kitchen!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not too many bells and whistles on this model, but serves the purpose. Only drawback and maybe I'll find it later, I see no "warm" key to keep food warm after cooking. Of course you can reset power level to low to accomplish this, but old microwave had a dedicated key for warm. Looks sleek and modern and fan is substantial for removing cooking odors.
Attractive and efficient

We've had this microwave for a few weeks and find that it does everything that we need it to do. It is an improvement over our previous GE microwave.

I bought this In Jan 2017. Loved the looks & features on it. It runs quietly & works well. Has a melting feature on it, which is nice. I got 14 years out of my last microwave & the only thing that quit working on it was the touch pad. Worth buying..
Great Features/Easy to use
from Allentown, PA, United States
Good quality. Nice Features. Easy to use. Our last GE microwave lasted 14 years. This one is replacing our old one. So far very happy with it.
Seems to work great, fan is on the noisy side, but that's ok because it has good airflow. The under hood lamp is halogen with too much of a yellow glow. It should be LED in todays world.
will rate again

So we've only had this for about 4 months and when ever we have anything in there for more then 3 mins we hear this buzzing/ humming sound, we moved into a brand new house and we're not sure if they installed it incorrectly but its very annoying. we'll be giving GE a call and maybe then I can rate/ write review

Our builder did not give us much to chose from for appliances. This was one of only three options so I was a little worried. Once we closed on our home and moved in I finally got to try everything else and have been so happy.

We love the fact that we can mute the button sounds and the ease of use. Not to mention it looks great.
Exactly want you expect!

I love Ge microwaves. Over the years with all the moves and office kitchens, I have had a chance to experience many a microwave. Ge's just seem to program so much easier and faster,than other brands
