    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.

    We replaced all of our GE appliances with updated GE appliances ~8 months ago … All have disappointed us. First, I have to agree with another reviewer that the knob control is "stupid." Really, just poor design ... While we have not had any reliability issues with this microwave, we find ‘using’ the appliances a constant source of frustration. The source of this frustration and which is common across all of the appliances is that the lettering of all pad controls is gray on a black background, with no back lighting ! You can see this for yourself in the appliance photos on this site, and zooming in makes it even more apparent. The natural lighting within our kitchen area is well within the range of normal but, because of the lack of contrast between the lettering and the background it’s necessary to turn on additional lights (e.g. overhead kitchen light) just to be able to ‘see/read’ the pad controls. You almost need a flashlight to use the controls, and I’m exaggerating only slightly. To us, this seems to be a design blunder … GE could have at least offered control back lighting as an ‘option’ which we would have gladly paid for. As far as the 'convection' feature is concerned, it's almost useful (sic.) It takes so long to heat up that after using it a few times you will likely, like us, find yourself using the range oven or dragging out the toaster overn, the latter of which we were hoping the convection feature of this microwave would replace. No such luck ... Another disappointment is that the temperature/clock/timer lighting on the microwave and stove is greenish while on the refrigerator it’s white. All are Profile appliances, all purchased new and all purchased at the same time. I understand designs change over time but, putting out a ‘current’ line of appliances (e.g. Profile) with mixed lighting shows lack of attention to detail. The GE Engineers, Human Factors and Quality Control folks should spend more time with these units in the ‘real’ world and less time in lab. So disappointing, and so irritating …

    Lousy Product!

    By BOB8

    from Gallatin, TN, United States

    Comments about GE Profile PVM1790 Stainless Steel Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:

    This microwave worked for about 6 months. Then it would not turn on after you hit the express button, unless the door was slammed closed. The service man ordered all the electronics and a different service man returned to install the parts that did not fix the problem(he was not very good at his job!) and the microwave did not work at all after he left! Also he managed to turn on the stove top with a plastic bag on top of it and he says I smell something, he managed to melt plastic all over the glass top elements on my stove and scratch the black on the stove top! So far they have only replaced the black stovetop an they say they do not have access to to glass top! So they send out the original tech and he finds that one connector is lose, but you still have to push hard on the door to make it come on. So he orders a new door assembly and about 2 or 3 weeks later he comes back and installs the door. It worked fine for about two months and now it is back to the same old problem of having to push hard on the door to get it to run! I complained so much to GE Consumer Relations that they sent me a letter of commitment to replace the microwave if I had any more problems! So now I am not sure that I want ANY GE product in my home! It appears that the model that I bought is no longer being produced and I can see why. So how do I know that I will not have the same problem with next GE microwave?

    Don't buy this product

    By Pixie48

    from Pensacola, FL United States

    Comments about GE Profile PVM1790 Stainless Steel Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:

    I've had this model for over a year over my stove. I did not realize how much moisture comes out of the top vent (as opposed to a front vent). It not only ruined the finish on my cabinet, but when I realized it, I looked inside my cabinet door and there was mildew inside the cabinet. DO NOT BUY ANY UNIT THAT VENTS OUT THE TOP OF THE APPLIANCE!

    Replaces old GE

    By Grammy7

    from Fairfield, CT, United States

    Comments about GE Profile PVM1790 Stainless Steel Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:

    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!!!!

    Love this microwave combo

    By chdh

    from Indianapolis, IN

    Comments about GE Profile PVM1790 Stainless Steel Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:

    I have now had my microwave for 1 year. I LOVE all the features. However, the small plastic hooks that hold the racks in place are very fragile. Mine has been used very carefully - and two of my hooks have broken. I'm currently trying to find out how to get them replaced. They broke in less than one year.

    Micro/convection oven

    By BruceWilk

    from Norton Shores, MI, United States

    Comments about GE Profile PVM1790 Stainless Steel Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:

    This unit is similar to an earlier model of GE appliances with which we had excellent results.  The only problem I have encountered is that the temperature during baking never seems to reach the set point.  Other than that, I believe it will be fine.

    Gorgeous and Functional!!

    By flysteve

    from North Palm Beach, FL, United States

    Comments about GE Profile PVM1790 Stainless Steel Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:

    This Microwave/Convection Oven is such an attractive appliance! Both inside and out. I bought this item a while back and I've read several reviews saying that people are having trouble using it, but I'm not sure what they're talking about. I'm not the brightest bulb in the batch and I think it's very easy to use. Of course, I read the manual and I also realize that this Microwave isn't going to be as easy to operate as my last one, that lasted for 12 years (GE as well). But I'm sure that in 12 more years or so I'll think that my next one isn't as easy to operate as this one. To sum things up: I love this microwave! It is gorgeous and functional!!

    Comments about GE Profile PVM1790 Stainless Steel Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:

    Awful engineering. 15 months old and for the third time, unit comes on by itself. Very expensive product that does not work. No more GE for me. Would not recommend their junk to any one.
