I bought the GE Profile microwave because its unique appearance, and overall higher quality recommendations. Performance is as expected for a microwave and no disappointmets here. quality of the door lock is of concern as it is plastic and unsure of its continued use. PROBLEM: any time I press the "POWER SAVER" button, sometimes unintended while cleaning outside, an eror message that the keypad is malfunctioning. This is a brand new 30 day old appliance, If the button is not pushed all else works great. I am concerned for long term continued use will it stand te test of time. bd

Not a Reliable Product

I bought this product to replace another GE Profile microwave that I bought just 5 years ago. I bought another GE Profile in the hopes of not having to replace the back mounting plate and be able to use the same holes in the top cabinet. I was able to use the previous back mounting plate, however I had to drill all new holes in the top cabinet for this new microwave. The bottom of my top cabinet is now like a swiss cheese, full of holes. Hard to understand why the GE engineers cannot just keep some key installation aspects the same. Well, new GE Profile installed, old GE Profile thrown away, and last night, just 3 weeks into the new one, it stops working while I was cooking some pasta on the range below. The microwave's fan, light, and timer were on. The microwave itself was not being used. Today the GE technician came out and said that the steam from cooking the pasta shorted the keypad and the unit therefore stopped working completely. After about a day the unit dried out and it went back to working normally. Thus this unit cannot handle the steam from one single pot of boiling water cooking pasta, as the circuits become shorted from the humidity, and the whole unit stops working for about a day. Simply not reliable. Sad to see an iconic US brand underperform the foreign competition, once again.

Great looks, good performance but does not last.

Comments about GE Profile Spacemaker 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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Broke in Less Than Two Years!!! What a Joke
from Nevada, United States
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
from Indianapolis, IN, United States
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.
Like this.. too bad it isn't manufactured anymore
from Hammond, WI, United States

from Evergreen, CO, United States
We wanted the same model that this one replaced since we had such a good experience with the old one.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

LOOKS AND WORK GREAT
from Wheeling, IL, United States
I liked the features and so far my wife is happy with it , installed myself and look great over the range. Haven't use the steam feature but so far working good
GE Profile is good equipment
from Central Texas
We've had this model installed for about month and we're happy with it, so far. I know this specific model is no longer produced. However, newer models really need an additional feature: A back-light to illuminate the dark-colored control panel. At night or early in he morning, I must turn on all the overhead lights in the kitchen in order to read the touch panel and enter instructions. If the lighting in the kitchen is dim, I can't read the control panel ... which is black.
from Chicago, IL, United States
Just replaced by GE microwave by the way it was 14 yrs old. I am very pleased with this new model and features
from Spokane, WA, United States
We purchased this machine one year ago. It already needs repair! It has good functions but died one week after warranty was up.Appliance repair person thought it was the control panel but it was not. Now he is looking for fuses. I don't think it is very dependable
