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.

Replaced our 20 yr ge one with this newer one. It's everything a family needs and more without the heavy price tag. Great features and love the recessed plate

Nice microwave but it's difficult to heat for a fe
from Portland, OR, United States
We bought this microwave a couple of months ago along with a new GE profile range. My main gripe with this microwave has a problem when I try to program it to heat for a few seconds. It just becomes a timer most of the time. Sometimes it works but it is very touchy.
Love the sensor cooking

Works great and I'm glad I spent the extra money to get the sensor cooking. No more guessing to get a perfectly baked potato (for a microwave that is). It is also nice that I can cook/heat something in the microwave while at the same time be using the timer feature for something else. Very cool. I also love the occasional reminder beep when I've left something in the microwave (like my reheated coffee... I use to reheat the same cup of coffee over and over because I would keep forgetting about it lol - but no more!). The only thing I don't care for is the beeping when the timer goes off; it is persistently obnoxious, unlike my older microwave that had a few beeps interspersed with silence until you turn the timer off. This microwave just beeps constantly until you turn it off - very annoying (which could be a good thing I guess, but I don't like it).

We just replaced our GE spacesaver profile Microwave. I wish we could have been able to replace it with another 36". Since no company makes a 36" anymore, we had to choose one that would be as close as possible. In stating that, we could not be more pleased with our choice! The microwave does everything we expect and more. Looks sleek and stylish! Makes my kitchen look good. The down side is the fan is loud.

Nice product but I would have liked to have know it can only be installed one way... mounted to wall with enough bracing to attach to and have more options in bracket
Awesome GE product features!

I am veary happy from Tunis purchase.I will higly recomendet
Good price. Good performance. Needed something to replace an 11 year old GE Profile without breaking the bank.
So easy to use!
from Mechanicsburg, PA, United States
I recently replaced our builder supplied gas range with a new GE gas double oven. I hadn't originally intend to replace the microwave but after more consideration, I thought it would be best to have The prices match. There were two models to choose from and this was the smaller of the two. I love the looks of it but mostly I love how easy it is to use. The buttons are far more logical than the previous microwave we had and it comes with a ton of truly useful presets. I also love the recessed turntable, a super nice feature. This microwave was a great value and looks fabulous with my new gas double oven.
Sensor works well
