The surround is OK, although aesthetically not as pleasing as the frame for the previous models. The problem we encountered was with the installation directions. The instructions have you measure the center of the interior of the cabinet floor and transfer it to the cabinet frame. They assume that the interior measurements of the cabinet are centered with the cabinet opening. Our cabinet was not, and the 1/4 inch difference made installation very tight and difficult. We suggest that you find the center of the cabinet opening, and transfer that opening to the bottom of the cabinet with a line (regardless of whether it is centered horizontally within the cabinet). Then use the template to determine the correct placement of the slot that anchors the back of the microwave. The rest of the instructions can be followed as given. This plastic and metal framing cost 75% as much as the microwave. Hardly a bargain, but necessary to complete the built-in look of the appliance, which is why we rate it so low in value.

Trim piece open at top - mounting screws visible
from Baton Rouge, LA, United States
This trim piece would be ok if the oven were mounted on the wall with top of trim higher than eye level. Unfortunately, our oven is mounted in a cabinet enclosure that is lower. The top of the trim is less than 4 feet above the floor, so standing in front of the microwave, there is a large opening above the trim and you can see all of the mounting hardware, screws, etc on the interior of the trim. The mounting instructions state that you shouldn't block this opening. You need to leave at least one inch clearance so heat can escape. I am now forced to try making some sort of trim piece (that will look good) that I can attach to my cabinet above the metal trim piece that will block this view of the hardware, without blocking the escape of heat and creating a fire hazard. I wish the trim had been designed in a different way, maybe like our previous trim piece that had slots in it for heat escape.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Frequent User
GE nor website was very specific about the dimensions of product. Pre-measuring our cabinetry was impossible and even after receiving the trim kit, it was difficult to predict actual installation precision.Two things we do not like is that fact that the white color of the trim kit and the white color of the microwave it surrounds are different and there are vented sides that are unsightly. Overall trim kit could have been better designed. Installation was complicated but was easy.

Used this product to finish off the total look for my wall microwave.

from Kailua, Hawaii
The trim kit is very attractive, it gives a nice finished look to the microwave when built in to a wall cabinet. It makes the microwave blend in beautifully with the GE oven which is installed just below it. We are very happy with the way the GE appliances & trim have updated our kitchen.
