it's been a few months since we purchased this ge combo. i have no issues whatsoever. i love the versatility of the microwave in terms of inputting what you want to heat, defrost, reheat. it's easy and intuitive. much easier than the older versions of microwaves and more specific. great job on this one. one suggestion i have for next generation would be to illuminate the touch pad similar to the keypad of a laptop or computer keyboard so as to allow for easier input in the evening without having to turn on overhead lights. my wife uses the oven and finds it just as easy to use with no issues. i predicated this purchase on the solid reviews it has had via lowes minus the couple of nonsensical whiny ones. great job GE

Bought this oven new and after only six weeks of use, it went dead. Had to wait a little over a week for the service call under warranty, and when repair guy came out and was troubleshooting, something started to smoke. he had to call GE and do further troubleshooting. Apparently the control panel failed and the smoking part needed replacement, which leads us to waiting another week for the part to come in. Never realize how much you rely on a simple thing as a microwave when you don't have one. Hate how both rely on one part to work. Although the oven combo looks very nice, the reliability factor is not there. My specific situation aside, the other critiques fit this oven combo is the beeps indicating microwave cooking is complete is way too soft (no volume adjustment for it either) and does not repeat, the fan is too loud when microwave cooking is done and there is only one timer. I had read many reviews for this oven online. Unfortunately, you do not see the bad reviews until you are looking for a specific problem to see if others have experienced it. All I he to do was Google "GE oven dead" and I saw many who have had control panels fail - some from using the oven clean feature. I did not used that, but I did use the Lo Broil twice.

I should have seen a working model first.

The dial controls for the microwave are absurd. Rather than a key pad to punch in the time and then a start button you need to dial in the time, only in 15 second intervals rather than 1 second intervals, push in the dial button, dial in the power level, push in the dial button then push the dial button again to start the microwave. Too complicated. I can foresee the dial wearing out in the near future. Had I known what it took to just start the microwave I would not have bought this model.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This is the third wall unit that we have installed in our home over the last 17 years. It is by far the best looking unit, easiest to use and best value. We did our research and shopped four stores before buying the ovens.
Combo oven- Microwave & Oven

I just had my unit installed 3-days ago. Very sleek and easy to use. So far so good. The timer is very quiet...and I appreciate that. I wish the time stayed up on the screen all the time.
Great Microwave / Oven Features
from Dallas, TX, United States
Microwave is very large compared too my previous unit. Thought that I would not like the door to the microwave opening like an oven door, but it works out great. The oven has a great even cooking temperature. Can't wait to cook my holiday dinners!
Time to cook some more!!!! :-)
from Big Bear Lake, CA, United States
Awesome, after installation, I needed a test run. Preheat of the oven went quicker than my 1998 G.E. oven. Meatloaf and potatoes ready to go in. Half an hour later dinner is ready!!!!! Can't wait until I get to back some cookies!!!!!! Thanks G.E.

from Palm Desert, Calif, United States
My old unit died. was disappointed that it could not be replaced in white.. I had to take the unit in black, My happy surprise was it is magnificent built unit, with all the ease of using the unit either Microwave or oven cooking. I couldn't have order this unit since I have no knowledge of the construction or the ease of maintaining it. thank you

I bought the combo not even a month ago and already have problems. It doesn't bake the bottom of the food. Also there is an error message saying an unexpecter door unlock happened and service might be required and I have to turn it off. The manual included is joke. It explains more how to unpack the oven than how to operate it.
Better than expected
Buying a wall oven/microwave combo is a challenge, especially with specific dimensions,etc. We replaced a 2001 model and fitting in the existing space was limiting. We found this unit and saw high reviews at a medium price point. It's scary to jump, but do it. This is a great appliance. It has so many bells and whistles, but ones you will actually use. The microwave has many settings that I find useful, including a cool down feature where the fan still blows so the glass does not fog. The oven cooks evenly and I was glad that the buzzer for both the oven and microwave is very pleasant sounding, not the irritating BEEP BEEP of other models. This one sort of sings to you :)
