Summary: This microwave was pre-installed in our newly constructed home along with the matching oven. After less than two years of normal use, it stopped working and could not be repaired at a reasonable price.
Summary: We were surprised to use the microwave function of this oven and see the interior light and front panel display dim visibly when one of the internal fans started. Fan speeds vary audibly as this happens. Food, however, was heated properly, and the manual makes clear that this behavior is normal.
Summary: On second unit. First the main panel shorted out after 13 months. Second unit just stopped heating. 16 months in. Extremely poor reliability. Very disappointing. Would love it if someone from GE would call and ask for feedback, but they have thier money so they don't seem to care.
Summary: I agree with GPS guy. When a part that has a limited lifespan such as a light bulb requires a trip to the dealer for replacement, this indicates extremely poor design. There is no reason it should not be user replaceable.
Summary: Cooked my first casserole in it and it vented all over my brand new solid maple cabinets. Not good. When cooking on convection the door locks when it gets over 350 degrees. This makes it hard to check a cake to see if it needs more time. Seems much smaller than my old microwave.
Summary: I bought this product despite bad GE experiences simply because there were limited choices for a unit that could be "built-in" and the GE reviews were not as bad as the competitors. That said, with infrequent use over less than a year, the light bulb failed. Guess what?
