We bought this model to conserve our limited counter space. We easily installed it ourselves under a cabinet with the optional installation kit. It looks nice, is easily accessible, and, so far, has met all of our microwave cooking and reheating needs. The controls and cooking options seem too many and varied for our personal preference, though we are working though the learning curve. We noticed steam/water vapor emitting from the side vent and collecting on the wall when cooking a large sweet potato. While this appears to be normal, we hope it does not present a corrosion problem with long term use. This unit costs about $100 more than equivalent-power counter top models. Clearly, some of that additional cost results from beefing up the frame to hang from a cabinet, but the [$] premium seems a little high. This microwave oven does meet our space and cooking needs, and we are happy and satisfied with our purchase. Oh yes, the Abt ordering, packing, and shipping process was easy, speedy, and top notch!

I had this less than 2 months when I had to have it serviced because it wouldn't turn off unless you left the door open or unplugged it. 18 months after the servicing it started doing it again, in fact, it has even started without anyone being near it. The last thing I do before I go to bed or leave the house is make sure it's unplugged. Now it's starting to make a slight hissing noise when it cooks, so needless to say, this thing has got to go and I WON'T get another GE

Paint flaking and falling off
from Huntsville AL
Comments about GE Profile Spacemaker II Black Microwave Oven:
The paint is flaking off of the interior and falling into the items we are microwaving (which sounds like a common problem, which makes me think this must be some sort of manufacturer defect). We can hardly clean the interior because every time we try MORE paint flakes off. This is totally unacceptable. Also, the microwave has started to turn on (lights and fan at least) on occasion when we are closing the microwave door. This thing seems to be a piece of junk. It's very disappointing.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Interior paint falls out
from Tennessee, United States
after just a year we noticed the interior paint falls off. many reviews complain about the same issue.
Bought 2, both broke after 2 years
By no to profile
from Washington, DC, United States
GE quality really has tanked. I've owned 2 of these and both broke, unrepairable after the warranty at 2 years. I have a 14 year old spacemaker II that still works. I guess Quality is Old School.

Why change the size?
from Cincinnati, OH, United States
We have the Ge Profile PEM31DMWW microwave. It has been fine. Why do you change the sizes? We have expensive built-in cabinets. We had to buy the trim kit to fit this microwave. Now, to replace the microwave, the dimensions are different, and it will require cutting into our cabinets by a professional. Why is it so hard to make the same size? The other issues we have are the inside of the door seems to be rusting in the corner, and I have had to replace the plastic turnstile piece because the wheels stop rotating causing the glass table in the microwave to periodically pop. This is very frustrating. I spend far more on fixing my cabinets than I do on replacing this microwave. Clearly, the people who design these don't have expensive cabinets in their home.

Sorry I bought this model
The top white interior of this microwave is bubbling and peeling off
Peeling interior paint
from Chicago, IL, United States
We love how this unit functions and looks but were distressed to discover the interior ceiling paint of the unit is peeling. GE's FAQ's indicate there is no repair possible and the unit must be replaced. We love the microwave and are disappointed that GE's solution to the problem is to load up a landfill with a functioning product.

LIGHTWEIGHT AND HANGS UNDER A TOP CABINET....NOT ABOVE THE RANGETOP. USER NEVER GETS IN THE WAY OF PERSON USING RANGE
from Elmont, ny
We got our first one when we remodeled our kitchen 5 yrs ago and needed a built-in with these specific dimensions. It lasted about 2 years when the door switch/button broke. The 2nd one lasted until last night when the door switch broke again. Unfortunately we can't seem to find a different brand with these dimensions.
