I studied via Consumer Reports and this was what we needed as we didn't use all the features on the oven we were replacing. The average life of a microwave is 8 years but the old GE was installed in 2003. This confirmed the durability and report that CR had reported. I installed it myself and I am not a handyman genius. However, I was patient in making my measurements which turned out to be just right. The old bracket had to be replaced with the new one and it wasn't difficult; although the previous installer did me no favors so I did have to do some workaround. I used the bottom bracket's center V notch as the reference point to make pencil lines on the wall and underneath the overhead cabinet shelf so I could take the template measurements and measure from the center overhead. I also double checked by measuring the new microwave points of contact etc. I added 3/8 inches to the measurement from the back wall to the front where the holes were for the overhead bolts. Perfect! It was easy to rotate the fan so that the vent was into the room. I drilled a 1 1/2 inch hole for the power cord instead of the 2 inch and it was fine. I won't go into how the previous installer made it more of a challenge but I didn't have to call GE for help. It just took some common sense and patience. I also installed the charcoal filter before hanging the microwave. Hope this helps someone. You can do it even if the cabinet isn't like one of the options in the directions.

The microwave was fine, but arrived with a sizable dent in the side.

Perfect quality & Price

This Microwave oven fit my budget and looks great. Operates much better than my old one. Couldnt be happier with it!
THE 1ST MICROWAVE CAME WITH HOUSE. IT LASTED 7 YRS. THE 2ND ONE LASTED 2YRS. I HOPE THIS 3RD ONE LASTS A LITTLE LONGER THAN THE 2ND. THE ONE THING THAT THE WIFE AND I DON'T LIKE ABOUT THE 2ND AND 3RD IS, WHEN YOU PUT SOMETHING IN FOR LATER HEATING WHILE FIXING DINNER, YOU HAVE TO OPEN THE DOOR AND SHUT IT TO GET IT TO WORK. VERY IRRITATING.

I would buy this item again

Comments about GE Bisque Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:
I selected this basic unit because it comes in bisque to match my kitchen.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery and installation was excellent. Door handle was loose so a new unit was re-deliverEd immediately.

old microwave stopped working and it was a GE so I purchased the same kind
This is our fifth GE microwave that we have purchased in the last 25 years. We always go with the space saver model that goes over the range and have not been disappointed. The last one lasted 13 years. The quality has declined a bit in that time. It isn't as heavy duty as the last one. The door is flimsy and a little shaky when you use it. It isn't quite square which is noticeable when hanging next to the cabinets. It would really be nice when changing model years, the mounting holes would stay the same. There was no reason to have to change the mounting screw locations. Reward us for being brand loyal for heaven's sake! All that being said, it is so much quieter than the last one. If it lasts as long as our previous purchase, we will be very happy.
Easy to use

Easy to install and use. Perfect fit, very quiet while running.
from Adrian, MI, United States
Great value and options. It was somewhat easy to install. It replaced a GE microwave that was 20 yrs old. The instructions were easy to follow and the support bracket was the hardest thing to install . I will be happy if this one last 20 years.
