Just replaced our older Sharp model micro with this new GE JVM1540. After reading the reviews I was concerned about the noise level, but I have to say this micro is soooo much quieter than my old one. The vent fan is quiet as well as during the cooking process. The control panel was easy to learn, I didnt even need to read the manual. We defrosted meat and it came out perfect. Installation was easy. Read the manual about changing the vent from "recycling" the air to outside venting (if you have an direct vent to the outside)..we almost missed this option. So far so good. The only down side is the door design. The curved front looks a bit out of place against the straight line of the cabinets. But I can get used to that.

Have owned the GE JVM1540 microwave for about 16 months. It quit on me and I called a GE service guy to come out and check the unit. He said the fuse had blown that controls the unit, he replaced it and assured me all would be okay. I told him that we had trouble from time to time with the light inside not coming on when the door was opened and the unit continuing to run for a few seconds after the door was opened while in use but he said that was not possible. Any way he went on his way and about 2 days later the unit quit again, I called him again, he came out and said the fuse had blown out again, so he replaced it, rechecked all the electronics of the unit and said it must have been a bad fuse. It lasted 3 days this time, so I call again and now he tells me that I am opening the door the wrong way and that is whats blowing the fuse. I guess he thinks I just got off of the TURNIP truck. Evidently he will not come back out so I try the GE people, they have not returned any response for a month. I dont have much faith in this GE brand or the people they reccommend for service. Frustrated in Florida...

I'm hooked on this model :)
Comments about GE Spacemaker Over-The-Range Black Microwave Oven:
My daughter bought me this same microwave for Christmas several years ago. It is a really good appliance and I was so disappointed when it did go out, that I bought another one of the same model. Inexpensive, yet everything you need :)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this after researching many different brands and I am very happy with this purchase. Great product and works fantastic.
Easy Microwave to use
Old microwave stopped working and we had to get a new one fast. Teenagers only know how to microwave. Went on line and found a unit close to our old one that just quit working. Ordered and in about 2 days it was delivered and placed in service. Been working great ever since.

Works very well.

The microwave cooks very well. The display panel is very good and functional. The only thing I have noticed is when I close the door it seems to make a "pinging" noise. It makes me believe it and the outer body is thinly constructed. Could have been built with a sturdier outer shell.

We use it at least 6 times a day, works great, easy to use
Cooks father than the old one!
from Cocoa Beach, FL
We had one that lasted literally 30 years to the day. I wanted a white one that wasn't expensive, was large enough with a rotating dish, and wasn't complicated to use. This is large enough and strong enough for what we do (I do not and will never, cook meat or items from scratch in a microwave, mostly reheat and maybe baked potatoes). My biggest compliant is that the reheat button is complicated, if you hit it, it just starts working with no idea what level and how long it will run. We had to download the instructions from the main website and keep it behind the machine. I would've preferred having a reheat button to push and put how many minutes instead of having to fill out layers of buttons before hitting reheat. Regardless, I just hit time and put in how many seconds and it is amazing how few seconds it takes to warm something (auto set on high for TIME).
does what I want u-wave to do.....
Unit is identical to 6 year old unit I'm replacing. I hope it lasts longer
