Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by Callie46 Expect Problems with in first year
Had 2 GE 1.4 countertop microwaves in 10 months and both had the same problem.
First GE 1.4 countertop microwave purchased was returned to the store with in 30 days days due to problem listed below.
Second GE 1.4 countertop microwave purchased in 8th month service tech came to repair. (SAME PROBLEM) GE ended up replacing the microwave because the part has been on backorder for months due to quantity of replacement parts needed per service tech.
Problem: Stops running on its own prior to time set due to faulty relay switch.
GE will replace microwave due to part not being available "ONLY" if under warranty. Lucky mine was still under the 1 year warranty.
Highly suggest extended warranty to have peace of mind if purchasing.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by Thistles17 2nd GE Microwave I have owned
Reluctant to purchase another GE Microwave but did so online. Was upset to see that the interior of the door has a large lip all the way around the glass. My last microwave oven was also made by GE with the same type of door configuration and the rust from condensation which accumulated at the bottom of the glass was horrible. It was suggested by a service rep that I sand and paint the area but I was reluctant to do that. The condensation accumulates at the bottom of this new unit as well and I take care to leave the door ajar so that it can dry out before I close it.

I have had this microwave for one year and two months. About two months ago it stopped heating things as warm or hot as they should be. Today it stopped working all together. For the money and the name brand it should last more than one year. It is too bad I just passed the one year mark.

This is an update to my original review of this microwave oven on November 4, 2012. At the time, I gave it 3 stars. I praised some of the convenience features, and panned the cooking performance, which I found to be terribly slow, not at all what one might expect from an 1100W unit.
This month (Jan. 2015), it died. Needless to say, my opinion of the oven has changed for the worse. I've noticed that the ratings for this microwave are fairly polar -- folks either love it, or else hate it because it crapped out on them. My theory is that the folks who love it are either lucky, or haters-to-be (when *theirs* craps out). There is clearly a problem with this microwave when so many people report that their ovens died long before they should have. I only wish mine had died under warranty....
Sure wish I could get parts for my old Litton -- it lasted over 20 years with daily use. Today that's a dream. It certainly won't happen with this model.
BOTTOM LINE: Do yourself a favor. Buy another brand. (I recommend Panasonic or Sharp.)
