Works fine. But runs very loud.

MPetters, Amazon

  • Summary: Not a terrible microwave, as long as you aren't having a conversation nearby. I bought this to replace a 3 year old Maytag that quit. This was the closest match to the rest of my stainless appliances. The unit is oddly loud when running. Works fine. Cooks as expected. But...very loud.

  • Summary: We bought this model GE Spacemaker microwave in 2011. It intermittently stops heating items for a few days at a time every now and then. We have no idea why it conks out intermittently and neither did a repairman who inspected it. I wish we had never bought this unreliable microwave.

  • Summary: I have one of these guys in my kitchen and I hate it. It is mediocre in performance and louder than your average landscaper's leaf blower. Thanks, but no thanks!

Sarah Emily, Amazon
5 March 2015
  • Summary: I love GE. I'm an energy star freak. Then tonight, 1.5 years after I've moved into my brand new house with brand new appliances, this microwave caught on fire while popping popcorn using the popcorn button. The popcorn was fine...

Complete Garbage

FlyfishMontana, Amazon
14 December 2014
  • Summary: As others have stated this microwave is complete junk. Mine went out right after the warranty was up as well. It will do everything but heat the food. The labor and part needed to repair it is as much as a new microwave. I will replace the microwave, but I'm done buying anything GE.

Dead within 2 years!

C Miner, Amazon
21 September 2014
  • Summary: We bought this microwave JVM1540SM4SS along with the GE oven that matches it two years ago. Withing a few months the oven's control panel went out and had to be replaced. The shelf in the microwave had some sort of "metal" coating on it.

It broke after warranty, of course, but i fixed it myself

UtahRed, Amazon
25 August 2014
  • Summary: I guess i'm the lucky one. My microwave lasted 3 years. I really love how it works and how it looks, but now it's having problems. I have diagnosed the problem myself and ordered parts. You can find repair videos on YouTube to help. My microwave would run by itself or wouldn't shut off.
