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 …

Great looks, good performance but does not last.

By 

from Cockeysville, MD, United States

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

We bought as part of a package of owen, dishwasher and microwave. The appliances work fine except that the control panel keeps getting shorted and replacing them is not cheap. I had to replace the panel on dishwasher twice and now the same issue has happened with the microwave.

Broke in Less Than Two Years!!! What a Joke

By 

from Nevada, United States

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

We purchased this as an upgrade option in our new home and less than two years later, it has stopped working.....completely! Another poorly made GE product. The unit was used under normal conditions. We have had microwaves for a fraction of the cost last 5 times longer.

Faulty door limit switches

By 

from Indianapolis, IN, United States

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

Had this microwave for 10 years. Have had over 6 service calls to repair the main control board, handle interlock and door limit switches. The design is horrible. The fan and light will come on with the slightest grip of the door handle. Trying to find a replacement now as I cannot keep throwing money at this money pit appliance. Expected more from GE.
