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...

The very nest microwave I've ever had. I've had several but this one is priced reasonable yet is big enough and powerful enough to do anything you need it to do!!!
Good microwave at reasonable price
from Sumiton, AL, United States
I just purchased this microwave to replace one made by a different manufacturer. My old one was similar and worked fine but died after less than 2 years. Hope I get longer service from GE. Had only short time but so far I am pleased with this microwave.
Simple and effective
Perfect fit for an older mw w trim kit- Works exactly like the old one!
Somewhat easy to use
from Grand Rapids, MN, United States
This should have come with instruction booklet. Husband had to print instructions at work.
Bought this unit to replace a different brand unit that failed. Have been extremely pleased with this unit so far. Easy to use, and cooking appears to be very evenly distributed.
Burned out after 6 months
from Cherokee, AL, United States
Bought this to replace another microwave. Has good features, but short life. Just short of using it 6 months, it sparked and zapped the door. Afraid to use it again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This unit fits exactly into the cabinet as provided by our home builder. It has a clean appearance with easy to use controls. The interior is easy to clean, for those "explosive" events. The turn table glass is a good size for large items such a a roast or a platter of snacks. It is powerful and reliable piece of equipment which on the average last at least 5-6 years.
from Carlisle, PA, United States
This microwave does the job. Plenty of features, but not overdone. Easy to use.
Waiting to try it...
from Whittier, CA, United States
Good fit on the counter but doesn't reach the outlet. Needs extension cord, otherwise should be a good product...
