Two (minor?) problems.

Mitchell E. Davis, Amazon
22 December 2012
  • Summary: If you want to use a cooking time from 1 to 6 you have to push a "cook time" button first unless you want the exact minute with no seconds.To open the door takes an unusually hard,deep push.

It's not as good as the earlier version of this model

Kathleen A. Corrigan, Amazon
2 December 2012
  • Summary: I bought this to replace an earlier version of this model which was broken unexpectedly. It is not at all as well made. It seems tinny; the door doesn't close as well; the controls and settings are not as efficient as in the previous model.

Cooks well but ...

C. C. Jones "C. C. Jones", Amazon
26 December 2011
  • Summary: I have been pleased with the ability of this microwave to cook food or reheat a dish. Popcorn, unlike my previous microwave, turns out well. In fact, the regular sized Orville Redenbacher popcorn will pop perfectly with just a single press of the popcorn button. Here is a rundown of the pros and cons: Pro: * Inexpensive * 1200 watts or so which is the sweet spot for most frozen/convenience meals * Cooks popcorn beautifully (except for those 100 calorie bags) * Plenty of...

Failing after a year

LowRisk, Amazon
15 December 2011
  • Summary: I loved this microwave at first. I bought it because of the one touch panel (just touch a number and it heats for that number of minutes). It still heats fine after a year, but the plastic film covering the number pad is crimping. Also, the open button doesn't work well. I tried to fix it, but discovered that the door latch mechanism is made of cheap plastic, that has worn down. I guess none of this is surprising given the price.

Cheaply Made

mijokr, Amazon
15 November 2011
  • Summary: Had micro for about 3 months. First the door wouldn't close or open well. It kept getting stuck. Then at just before 3 months the finish on the inside bottom under the turntable started to flake off - a lot. Very poorly made.

Not what I expected from GE

Terri Fischer, Amazon
30 October 2011
  • Summary: Overall I'm not real happy with this purchase. My biggest complaint is the noise level. My previous GE microwave, which lasted 11 years was sooooo much quieter in operation. The magnitron device makes a much louder hum and buzz sound than my previous GE when it's cooking/reheating and the beeps from the touchpad and the done beeps are loud enough to wake sleepers on the second floor with their doors closed! I don't recommend buying this microwave!

Works well, but.....

Duffnick, Amazon
25 October 2011
  • Summary: Replaced a very old microwave oven with this new GE model. This one does work much better than the 12 year old one; however, the rotating cooking platform rattles and seems cheaply made. In all honesty I cannot complain about its ability to heat things up. We use this at work so it is mainly for heating breakfast and lunch items and reheating coffee. To this end it will satisfy your needs. Two things I do not like about it.

Stopped heating after 1 day

Stephen W., Amazon
24 October 2011
  • Summary: Like one of the other reviewers here, this oven stopped heating, even though it kept running. It worked fine for the first day. The next morning I decided to try the one-touch feature for cooking bacon. The turntable went around as normal, the light went on, it made noise as if cooking, but ... nothing! Zero heat. To make sure, I put a mug of water in for two minutes. It wasn't even warm. Fortunately, I got my money back.
