First GE over the range microwave 1986. Second 2007, 21 years. Now 2016, 9 years. All same line and size. Worked well before so sticking with it. But I hope the lifetimes for decent, not heavy use, is not still going down. 1) Inside much darker; prefer lighter walls making food easier to monitor. 2) First model had a pull-out louver on the bottom to direct vapors from stove front burners as well as rear burners to be exhausted. Second model did not have the spring loaded louvers, but installers were able to transfer them to it. Third (current) model has contoured base shaped differently. The original GE louvers cannot be attached. Big disappointment. Models do have a higher (Boost) exhaust fan speed. Much appreciated. 3) Previous model had quick one push cook control 1-6 minutes. New one only 1-5 minutes. I would prefer whole keypad, 1-9 minutes, had one button cook capability. "Add 30 seconds one button" is good aid. Four Stars vice five stars simply because haven't yet put the microwave unit use beyond basic. So lack of own experience to rate more completely, but no problems are apparent.

Do not buy the JVM7195DK microwave. I bought two of these microwaves to replace two older GE microwaves which had both failed after 9 years of use. Both of the new microwaves function as expected. However, the glass plate does not stay on its spindle. After a 1/2 turn it slips off track and stops rotating. It appears that the problem lies with the plate support. There is a bezel on each wheel of the plate support and that bezel should ride the slope of the plate depression. The wheels are reversed and consequently, the square edge of the wheel rides the slope, the wheels being spread too wide causes the support to ride up the slope of the well, which causes the glass plate to ride too high and slip off its spindle. Design error, manufacturing error? In any case, the microwave is unusable unless you can tolerate hot spots in your food. I went to the store from which I bought these microwaves and looked at their floor model. Its plate support is the same as on my units. I suspect this is a problem with every model shipped. By the way, I tried using the plate support from my old microwave in the new microwave. The plate stayed on the spindle however, the old plate support is too small to keep the plate stable when you put weight on the edge of the plate. So, the problem is definitely the plate support. I'm giving this 1 star with the hope that GE will offer a reasonable and prompt solution to this problem. Until you read otherwise, you might consider avoiding this model.

Comments about GE Stainless Steel Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:
The one button push cook time, three button push reheat options, and size to fit a large (12-in) mixing bowl or two soup bowls are great features. Installation is fairly easy as it requires attachment of a back mounting bracket and attachment to the cabinet overhead. The power output is able to reheat a cup of coffee in 1 minute.

Very good microwave so far...2 months old. The only thing I miss that my old one had was a timer for the night lite on it.

Excellent microwave in every sense: quality, looks, features, and price.

I have 2 rental properties and replaced both microwaves with this GE model, works great and everyone loves the extra capacity of the oven
Great Product. Support is somewhat of a challenge
from PA, United States
Purchase went well. Delivery was on time. Installation instructions were fine to follow, though I don't understand why the Owner's Manual is not supplied. Inside venting has been a challenge - out put is fine, but air doesn't seem to be drawing from above stove-top. Have not been able to find a valuable resource through GE yet, but still working.
glass plate does not work
from San Ramon, CA, United States
The glass plate does not stay in place due to the middle coupler being to low or the turning wheel being too high. The combination does not allow the glass to sit correctly on the coupler and slides off every time it is used
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Denver, CO, United States
Nice looking. Comes with no manual which is disappointing considering the many features. For example I found out the hard way that the melt feature only works for large amounts. If you use it for a small amount it will explode all over. Manual is online but I really don't want to go online every time I try a new feature.
Looks and works great!
Nice, big microwave. Like that it features both a light, fan and timer!
