New to this product, it's quite remarkable there's no easy way to set the time. The maker (GE) should be embarrassed. Therefore, the time is off by 4 hours and no amount of internet search for a solution helps.

I purchased a GE microwave that had to be returned due to electrical problems and received the same model. One year later, the same model basically caught fire internally. GE sent out a repair technician that confirmed that it was a manufacturing defect. GE then claims that it was beyond warranty and would only give me a $75 Good Will Certificate to purchase another GE microwave. What a joke! The original microwave price was $247. It took a month to get to the point of the Good Will Certificate.

    Our over the range microwave oven is under warranty and broke twice. They refuse to replace it. It was fixed the first time but it's broke again and the only service tech refuses to come to our home to service it anymore. It's been a nightmare and still not resolved. We will never purchase another GE Appliance ever again!

    It was installed under cabinet in the house we purchased but it is one with a door. It is so hard to use. The controls are down the side and the buttons do not light so you cannot see the instruction panel. I am just unable to use it. The instructions have worn off, too. Poor quality.

    Bought a new GE over the range microwave in April 2021 and it broke/stopped heating July. They replaced the magnetron in September and it's broken again a month later. Same issue and parts are out 2-3 months.

    GE Microwave performs great. No problems with it and it holds fair amount of food. Always there to perform when called to heat or cook when needed. Holds large plates and heats them up quickly. I always like what it does in the kitchen.

    I bought the matching GE Microwave and Range four years ago. After three years of usage, the plastic on the handle melted and peeled, making it very uncomfortable to open the door. It was caused by heat from the GE range below. It took months to replace and cost almost $150.

    I purchased a GE Profile™ 2.1 Cu. Ft. Over-The-Range Sensor Microwave Oven and paid over $500. I have had it 3 years and in the first 6 months it broke. It was under warranty and the $400 fee (door replacement) was covered. Then it broke 1 1/2 years later and I received a quote for $200 in labor plus the cost of parts (no longer under warranty). When the repaid guy walked in the house he said, "Oh, one of these. Is it the door?" I said no, we already had the door replaced, but his comment was very telling that I purchased garbage. I fixed it myself for $10 - it was a fuse. Then it broke 2 weeks later and I believe it is the fuse again. I contacted GE because I believe I received a lemon and they are willing to give me parts at 50% and nothing more. This was the worst investment decision I ever made and I caution others to not purchase this microwave.

    First of all we loved our GE microwave / convection oven for several years. We used both cooking methods with much satisfaction. Two months ago, the microwave started turning ON when we opened the door of the unit. I know this much be dangerous? Also, when using the convection oven, the microwave also operates, and ruins whatever I am baking. HELP!

    We have a GE built-in combination oven and microwave. The oven gets up to heat very quickly and bakes in less time than recipes call for baking. The microwave is an 1100 watt unit and performs equally well, and has for 29 years, Our cook top is a GE glass top unit, installed 11 years ago in a kitchen upgrade, performs equally well, though not quite as fast heating as our old gas unit but much cleaner and attractive. Have never required a service call on any of this equipment!
