Bought this microwave a few weeks back. It's very spacious. It has plenty of space inside for 2 lbs of frozen chicken breasts. The controls are easy, despite a lack of specific information pertaining to them in the user manual (but who reads those things anyway?). The lack of distinct defrost settings for types of frozen foods is disappointing. The easiest way to defrost is by weight, but some of the foods come out starting to cook, while others are still slightly frozen. And that's after weighing them on a food scale before defrosting. All the other presets for reheating and heating (pizza, beverages, plates of food, soup, etc.) work very well. The only complaint is that beverages sometimes come out a little cooler than I like, but an extra 10 seconds always works. I don't use the microwave to cook, only defrost and reheat, so I can't say exactly how good it is a cooking anything other than oatmeal. In terms of looks, this microwave isn't going to win any beauty contests. It's not just not pretty, I find it a little ugly. But for the price and the fact it somewhat matched my stove, refrigerator, and dishwasher, it's worth it. It's not like I'm going to invite people over to see how it looks or stare at it for hours on end as an inspiration in design. It works. That's all that matters.

We got this because it was a similar model to what we got a few years ago and had the right dimensions for our space. Despite being only an inch or so bigger in outside dimensions, it is a little smaller on the inside capacity. I like the clean look of the inside and the outside design too, and we didn't need to pay for features we won't use, like convection. It is also noticeably quieter than the model from just a few years ago while running. The door however is very noisy, big ca- chunk every time you open and close the door. The touch buttons are not as sensitive as they should be, I have to hit them twice pretty much all the time, and that's frustrating. Also the door is not as see through as the last one, making it difficult to tell what's happening in there ( is that water boiling yet?).

We bought this to replace another GE model with a broken turntable that was only a few years old. It was more difficult to install than the original one, but otherwise okay.

Delighted to find one without "improvements"
from Waltham, MA, United States
The old JVM14?? gave us 12 years of service without complaint, and I was set to look for a new one having the least additional useless features to pay for and have to work around during use. It was a pleasant surprise that the only change of notice was no metal rack, which was never once used anyway!

It's perfect. Supply all my needs. Spacious microwave with handy settings! I love the fan and lights to cook. Easy to clean. Easy to install!
Mounting Locations - Why Keep Changing
By regular customer
from Michigan, United States
Bought this a week ago. 3rd Over the Range microwave from GE. Last one did not last very long. I think it was a dud from the beginning . Was always loud. Finally just quit. Anyway, each time I have purchased essentially the same size microwave and they have all come with different mounting locations. I don't think my cabinet can take any more holes or my wall in terms of mounting the back bracket. Why not settle in on a pattern and keep it. Would have made the swap a 10 minute job. Otherwise it took about 2 hours.
DOES THE JOB
from Florida, United States
The microwave works as it is supposed to, however, I do have two minor complaints. 1.) You have to press the buttons quite firmly, and 2.)It runs a little loud, especially after you heat up two or three items in a row, and I'm only talking about 3-4 minutes.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Simple and understated on a budget
from Iowa, United States
I purchased and installed this microwave to replace a countertop unit, and I'm excited to put it to use. Right now the most impressive features are the surface light (two bulbs, bright, and they provide a nice atmosphere) and the recirculating fan (powerful and not terribly loud). The convenience cooking options are a nice touch, and I am happy to have a "add 30 sec" button again...express-cook buttons are also nice. Overall I'm pleased with the value of this microwave unit. It was easy to install to boot!
