it sounds like a problem with the door sensor is the most ...

Summary: Right out of the box, the thing doesn't work. The control panel is lit, I put my inaugural plate of food inside, set it for 5 minutes for time cook on 90 per cent power, hit start and nothing. No light, no turning turntable, no noise, no heat, no power. The time counts down on the control panel as if it's cooking, but the actual microwaving isn't happening. So I went through all the troubleshooting steps, called GE, and am referred to an outside appliance repair company.
Hard working microwave that gave us over 9 years of uninterrupted service. We are now repeat customers of this microwave.

Summary: We have had this microwave for over 9 years and it has worked perfectly from the time we got it out of the box and plugged it in. Our household uses the microwave intensely every single day. With all the kids coming and going with sports practices and games, as well as dinner for the family on the run. We especially love the express cooking buttons and the 30 second button has been used so often that the printing has worn off.
Summary: You will NOT want to buy this Microwave, Not because it doesn't look nice or work well or meet all the requirements of a microwave. You just don't want to have to replace it 3 months after the manufacturer's warranty expires. Thank God I purchased a 2 year replacement plan (which I NEVER usually do). My previous microwave was purchased at a garage sale for $15 & it worked like a champ for 10 years.
Summary: We bought this Microwave at Home Depot, not Amazon, after reading some of these Amazon reviews. Wish I had paid more attention to those who said their product went kaput. Ours died 92 days after purchase - thus 2 days over the 90-day period that Home Depot will exchange for faulty product. It had worked just fine but then totally died. Nothing. No power, no light, no microwave.
Summary: I chose five star rating cause is a no mistake microwave. For reheat you do not have to set temps, this microwave does it automatically. I don't care for how the door sticks every now then, but this a minor problem. It has a large glass turntable, & is very roomy inside. I would and have recommended this microwave to family & friends.
5 stars for function and features, but only 1 star for dying after only 14 months

Summary: This model was quieter than others (I tried various brands and models before settling on this one) and I LOVED that you could use th timer as a timer (as a separate operation) while cooking. I could set the timer for 10 minutes while boiling potatoes on the stove and then cook frozen veggies for 8 minutes in the microwave. When the veggies were done the timer would come right back on view and count down the remaining time till the potatoes were done.
Summary: I have owned a few microwaves over the years and liked them all, this GE unit is really great by comparison. The features that allow for popcorn, beverages, vegetables and potatoes are great I also like the instant time cook features from 1 to 6 minutes. The features took a couple of days to get use to but as a family we are very satisfied. I like the safety features that keep one from ruining foods.
