Reviews around price (4.59 of 5)

  • This was a great price, easy to install, and looks nice
  • This is a very reasonably priced and good quality over-stove microwave oven
  • was the cheapest price I could find for this microwave
  • So I'm going to see if I can repair the old unit for some reasonable price, and pocket the Gift Card until the unit fails again - which we all know (GE knows most of all) that it will

Reviews around instruction (4.56 of 5)

  • The instructions are not clear on how to install the charcoal filter for non vented installations.
  • Mostly because the instructions were so good I was able to minimize my time lifting and setting into the bottom rail
  • After I received it and read the instructions it was evident that not only were the instructions clear and easy to understand, the "U" shaped mounting bracket made the installation easy compared to the LG model which has just a bottom rail that requires millimeter-precision measuring which is practically impossible
  • I had never installed an over-the-range microwave before but with the good GE instructions and included
  • The mounting instruction was horrible, but you know what they say -- measure twice cut once

  • Im a cheap a##
  • It was easy to install, quiet operation, intuitive control panel, excellent fan air exchange, quality appearance and most important, it does a great job cooking.

Reviews around light (3.66 of 5)

  • Unusable, except for exhaust fan and overhead light for stove
  • Left side is dark; gives the impression they omitted a light on the left side, but when I changed the (only) bulb, there was nowhere to add a second socket and bulb
  • You can’t see buttons to operate unless you have bright lights
  • (3) Push buttons are difficult to read in anything less than bright light
  • The 1st problem was the light underneath on the right side kept going out, and we had to replace the dumb bulb 3 times (@$4 each), before I got fed up and called GE customer service, which was horrible to deal with
