I love the size and features of my new microwave and how attractive it looks. My prior GE micro didn't come with a turntable, and it makes such a difference, especially when I'm using the potato setting. I purchased a steamer covered dish which does a nice job under the steamer setting, but have to guess as to size or cups of vegetables I'm cooking when the question appears. One has to make many choices when preparing some of the food, so you have to follow instructions on the screen which tells you to "press again" for options and decisions to be made. Of course, you can simply choose to use regular cooking times based on past experience. I've had to remember to press the timer setting both at the start and upon completion of a countdown, or the reminder bell won't stop until I do, unlike my last unit. Also, in order to make the turntable stationary if the serving dish is too large to rotate on it, you have to press settings and go through some options to get to that function, and then press 0 for it to stop rotating. I found out that once the food was cooked, the setting automatically returned to the rotating turntable. However, these are just all learning curves one must get used to. I pretty much use my microwave every day so I hope it has a long life.

Purchased in June 2014. Unable to install until September 2014. This whole process took two days because of the need to re-drill multiple times because the template was wrong.We planned to vent up outside through the roof as with our old GE micro. So I read the install instructions - (A) Outside Top Exhaust (vertical duct) had NO instructions that the blower motor direction needed to be changed so I installed the damper as instructed, then we installed the micro and connected the exhaust to the duct work. Only Install instructions for (B)Back Exhaust and (C) Recirculating showed instructions on how to change the blower motor direction. Finally I thought we were done - imagine my horror when I turned on the vent and it blew INTO my kitchen, NOT up out the duct work!!!. No where in the instructions are we told to test the direction of the blower and my model number was NOT indicated for specific shipping assembly - JNM7196SF1SS. I do not have the energy or ability to go through taking down this thing again to move the blower motor so unhappily I installed the carbon filter. Now I have exhaust into my kitchen which is NOT what I want. Because of this I cannot recommend the product.

Comments about GE White Over-The-Range Sensor Microwave Oven with Recirculating Venting:
Great features for the price. I wish it had automatic fan like the spacemaker models. I also wish the products came with charcoal filters pre-installed.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great Features, Sleek Look

We love how this microwave looks in our new home. It has great quick select features that takes the guessing away from cook time on certain foods. Easy to clean, and looks very nice with the GE oven we purchased as well.

About Me Avid Cook
I was so upset when my old microwave went on me, No one locally had this model and color that would fit with my other color kitchen appliances. Customer service was top line, went way and beyond helping me with questions. I love the new microwave better then my old one. fits beautifully with my new decor.
Service and delivery comments:
Spectacular service, I can't speak highly enough about it.. Delivery was quick and I was so happy about that because I was heating up left overs old school the double boil water method. Funny how today a microwave can have such an effect on us. Delivery guys were very nice and polite.

Value priced but control buttons are hard to see and not lighted

I like most everything about this microwave. Has many options: vent, light, clock, choice of food to be nuked. Only drawback is poor door design. Glass front goes to edge of door and I accidently hit it on my last GE microwave taking out a bowl from inside and the glass shattered. Also, the glass plate that sits inside sits on a very flimsy rotator and it is difficult to place the plate back on the rotator because it scoots around while you are trying to put the plate on it.

So far so good. This was a replacement for a previous GE product so installation to the 2008 version was seamless. I know everything is online anymore but I would still like written version of 'what buttons do what'.
