It does not come with the charcoal filter. For the price, you think they would include it. Once you do buy it (for about [$]!), it actually does not fit this model at all. Seems like GE got lazy and didnt want to redesign a new filter for this system. You have to constructively wedge it up in the vent opening for it to be of any use (after removing the silver frame from around it). -1 star for this known issue by GE. Other than that, operation is fine. Since there is no digital number pad, you cannot enter in weird time values like 13 or 24secs. The dial only allows increments of 5secs.

I purchased this model in August, 2011 and withing weeks the handle (which is plastic painted to look like stainlesss steel) started delaminating as if the heat from the range below was causing it to melt. The service people came out and replaced the handle. After another 6 weeks or so the same thing has started to happen again. I called customer service and the rep I spoke with said that the tech that changed the original handle must have tightened the screws too much causing the paint on the handle to peel. That doesn't make sense to me. I'm not happy and would definetly NOT recommend this microwave hood to anyone.

Replaces old GE
from Fairfield, CT, United States
Needed to replace our 12 plus year old microwave....so replaced it with the same model as before. Just installed today and hoping we will have the same luck we had with the other older model. So far I am liking the styling and the inside; since the features are a little different then the old one, it will take a few uses to get to know it, but looking forward to a long and healthy relationship!!!!
oven good, installation not the easiest
from Mansfield Ohio
when I bought this unit to replace one I bought in 2006 that had a circuit board and touch panel failure , I found that the holes to mount it were completely different. I bought a GE so that i would not have to reengineer the installation.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Good looks, but it is not "All That"

About Me Casual Cook
Unsatisfied that you cannot increase the heating time in single digits. It only increases in 15 second intervals. EVERYTHING takes much more time to heat up compared to my old 1100 watt microwave. I have to increase cooking times on all store purchased items with microwave instructions.
from Austin, Tx
I had one for 10 yrs and loved it. I shopped until I found another just like it.
display panel too dark - hard to read
from Skokie, IL
Display panel should be backlit or a lighter color background with dark lettering. Very hard to read. Otherwise, a good product.

About Me Avid Cook
Quiet blower fan. Easy operation.
The start button should be larger and by itself its hard to find
from Litchfield, oh
The installation was easy. Operation was fine. The inside was a little dark I guess to hide the splatter. There are quite a few options on this model my wife will be busy finding them all. She said the start button should be larger and more by itself.
Now that's what I wanted!

Service and delivery comments:
Delivery was on time and the installation was done by someone who cared about delivering great service.
