Best microwave I have had.

G. Sikora, Amazon
18 August 2013
  • Summary: I love the fact that I can use as a microwave and an oven for those times that you have many dishes to prepare all at the same time. It is easy to switch over and it does a great job.

Planned obsolescence

  • 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.

Some clunkiness, but it works

drd88, Amazon
12 August 2011
  • 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.

2 are now broken.

Kyle, Amazon
4 July 2011
  • 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.

Poor design re. replacing light bulb

RR fan "RR fan", Amazon
28 April 2011
  • 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.

Poor venting for built-in install

Cookie Mendie, reviews.lowes.com
25 April 2011
  • 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.
  • Cons: Low quality

Light Bulb Not User Serviceable

GPS guy, Amazon
28 February 2011
  • 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?
