Summary: I should have paid attention to the previous reviews!!!! We needed a microwave to fit on a shelf and this was the only one that met the size criteria. I was so disappointed. I have had 2 spacesaver microwaves in the past and loved them no problems!!!! I waited three weeks for this to arrive at the store, brought it home opened it up put it on the shelf plugged it in and it would not stop running!!!! My husband figured out it was how the door was closing or not closing..
Summary: We had this microwave for less than a year when the paint on the inside started chiping off the top. Now half the paint is off the top and now the one side is starting to chip off as well. GE said they don't cover anything on the inside under their warranty. I mean come on just replace the darn thing for us. The paint is definately faulty.
Summary: This is the only microwave we could find that would fit in a prebuilt cabinet space - so we were ok with the higher than normal price for a microwave of this size. The "view pane" has some distortion - bumps - in it, and the metal trim around the door opening latch has almost fallen off, so long-term quality is suspect after only two weeks. We will see.
Summary: In the short time that we have had this microwave everything appears to be functional and operating according to design. I will say it seems to be quieter than most. Not able to say it is durable because we haven't had it that long. We shall see.
Summary: I have been thoroughly disappointed with this microwave. I bought it two years ago and have it repaired twice. It is just not quality made as G.E. appliances go. Definitely not worth the money or hassle.
