Desertrose7234 7/22/2020

Three days ago the microwave stopped working completely. We had an independent electrician out today and he said the problem is with the microwave it is not an electrical problem. I certainly hope it will be replaced or I can get my money back.

Heating Continues to go out

Cinf 7/19/2020

My unit came with our new house purchased in June 2019. I've had to have the heating part (w Magnet) replaced 3 times the first 9 months of using unit. GE finally replaced entire Microwave in May 2020. Six weeks after using replacement unit, the heating part has gone out again. I will not purchase another GE and go back to Whirlpool.

Nothing but problems

Hoeppner 7/17/2020

This was delivered on the 28th installed on the 30th. Did not use due to death in the family when I I used it. It just died and won't work. Called Lowe's and they won't take it back because it has been 31 days since delivered. Called GE and it took 2 weeks to get a repair person out. Then he comes in and changes out a part never checked to see that it doesn't heat. I call them back and he says he has to call GE and I never heard back from them.

Defective

MCust20 6/20/2020

The microwave stopped heating within the first 2 months of purchase. 5 months later it stopped heating again. Now a third repair is scheduled to install 4 parts. A new product should not require this much repair. This unit is clearly defective and utterly useless at this point but GE insists on multiple attempts at repair instead of just replacing it. I expect better quality from GE.

eroberts52 5/26/2020

The exhaust fans come on anytime the microwave is used. I understand the importance of the fans when im cooking on the stove underneath the microwave, but it is unnecessary to use those same fans to expel microwave exhaust. I cant use microwave at night because im affraid of waking my children. I looked everywhere including the full operating manual and there is no way to turn this feature off. Im very disappointed in this product.

Jeff17345 5/13/2020

Again, very low in the GE line of Microwaves. Missing some features when compared to my KitchenAid unit. Unit is small and not as powerful Exhaust fan not very powerful. Steam and grease spatters from the stovetop don't seem to hit the fan. Grease spatters land on surrounding cabinets.

Looks Nice

Muddchick79 4/24/2020

I purchased my microwave from Home depot. I purchased it from the reviews I received. Looks nice, very big in the inside but I am now finding out that its loud. At first I thought it was broken. Why when you put something in it and you turn it out the vent/fan comes on and just very loud. We only use it to heat stuff up so I decided to keep it. I also notice when you have the light on the bottom and if you open the inside door the inside is super hot , but my husband told me its normal due to the kind of light it is. Gives off the heat. But over all if you dont mind the loudest of it its very nice.
