After hitting ALL the review and product ratings websites, and looking at the store my wife and I decided to buy GE Profile when we wanted to upgrade and install an over-the-range microwave. We had some very clear points that we wanted in a microwave and range set and feel that GE Profile really is quality. So let me talk about the microwave here since we've had it over a month and put it through it's paces with a family of five. The GE Profile PVM1870SMS has everything we wanted and does it right. This microwave is a vast improvement over past microwaves we've owned. It heats evenly and quickly. When reheating a dinner plate I have not found the typical hot and cold spots, its very good here. The one button beverage heat really does the job well too.My 6 yr old daughter and 13 yr old son both tell me that the popcorn feature works perfectly every time. This microwave handles big dishes and is very roomy. The controls are intuitive and are configured well. We passed on some higher end models just because they were too complex. Lighting - something you might not think of when looking at these products, and other stores don't have them set up where you can compare. Many brands do a poor job of lighting your cook-top. They either have a single lamp that is under powered or the location is poor. This model has two lamps with a high and low setting - so thumbs up for GE. The only thing they could have done better was to move them closer to the front. Go to Abt, and check them out, play with the features and then buy this one!If you're reading about fan noise in comments you need to ignore these for the most part. Any fan that is going to move heat and smoke properly will make some noise. However you do get what you pay for, we compared lower priced models and brands and some are better than others. The XL1800 is better than most, I have it venting through a duct instead of back into the room although both options are fine. Looks great, and does a great job!

We bought this microwave a little over 3yrs ago and we have to already buy another one! We've bought cheaper microwaves that have lasted us alot more than this one! We needed an over the range microwave and wanted it to match our stove (which we bought at same time--GE profile# ...paid more for prob those 2 reasons versus buying a simple white countertop microwave. We did buy a simple countertop microwave for our son a few years before we bought our GE microwave and his is still working #he also uses his alot more than we do!)!!! We wont buy another GE and hope our stove doesnt break now!

QUIT WORKING IN LESS THAN 3 YEARS
from Troy, AL, United States
SO DISAPPOINTED. BOUGHT THE GE PROFILE STOVE AND MICROWAVE. IN LESS THAN 3 YEARS, SMELLED ELECTRICAL BURNING AND QUIT. ALREADY REPLACED TOP AIR VENT 3 TIMES BEFORE THIS. LOVED IT WHILE IT WAS WORKING.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Washington DC Area
This is the first microwave I've ever owned that could heat a cup of coffee without cooking it and giving that that burned taste. It's got great other features too - particularly the "melt" and "reheat" options. To top it off, the unit is visually attractive.
Died almost 3 years from date of installation
from NJ, United States
Like others have said, it just stopped heating. And the thing that really stinks is it matches my oven, so now I either have get this same one or have the appliance not match.
The unit broke after 4 years of part/time usage as I am a snow bird in Florida. I would assume that an "up-graded" model such as this would have a long life expectancy. Fixing the unit is out of the question with the cost of labor and parts.

This microwave came with our new house and looked great until it stopped working. Not impressed with the Ge Profile! We haven't even had it for 2 years and I already have to replace it!
from Boston, MA, United States
Microwave used in home less than three years and now doesn't work. Problems began within the first year with fan staying on when door was opened. No it won't work at all. I'll never buy GE again.
Won't buy GE Profile again!!
from Ohio, United States
This will be the second GE profile microwave we have to replace. Both lasted about 4 years. This one just stopped heating!! I'm so disgusted. Bought all new appliances when we built our house 8 years ago. ALL GE Profile. In that time we have replaced our dryer, refrigerator and now 2 microwaves. Definitely will not buy again!
Stopped working after less than 2 years
from Fairfax, VA, United States
I'm glad I came to this page to see the reviews before I bought another one of these. Just stopped working and will now have to replace. The black control panel is not illuminated, so you can never read the controls in the dark. Will not buy ANYTHING GE again.
Terrible quality, especially considering price
from Phoenix, AZ, United States
Have had the microwave for ~3 years and it quit working entirely (shut itself off). For a short time ~ 2 weeks, the microwave would shut itself off after or during use and would power back on after some time (not a fuse issue). Extremely low quality product, especially when considering the price of this appliance. Hoping all of our GE profile appliances don't follow suit.
