Customer Questions & Answers

Exact dimension for height

The installation specs show that the microwave height (in the back) is 16 1/2 inches. The product specs say 16 3/8" What is the exact height needed for the recirculating unit from the bottom of the mounting cabinet to the bottom of the back of the microwave. An exact measurement is necessary to make sure the unit does not block the screws on a light switch mounting plate.
Asked by: DS
Hello all I have been researching for a new microwave and nowhere does it state "check local building codes". Here in Georgia, the bottom of the microwave MUST be a minimum of 18 inches from the cook top. Thanks

does the exhaust vent up out of the top of the unit or straight out into the room?

My current microwave vents up out of the front edge of the top of the unit. Since it is close to the ceiling of the kitchen, the exhaust air pushes against the ceiling before dissipating out into the kitchen air space. After several years of use, the ceiling area over the unit is noticably stained with the oils and steam taken up by the unit - this notwithstanding that we frequently clean and return the filters into the unit. Please advise.

Mine inside the house. And it is so loud on high or low, you cannot be in room with fan. See my YouTube of it.

Purchasing a JNM3151RFSS. Is the filter kit for recirculating non vented ductless installation included with this model?

Asked by: Mary
Yes, it had two metal mesh filters and the charcoal filter was already installed in the fan unit.

Why 13" Max Upper Cabinet Depth with Recirculating Vent?

As you have stated in previous questions, cabinets larger than 13" require the use of an approved "Bump out Kit". The Diagram of Dimensions and Installation Information (attached for reference) specifies a maximum cabinet depth of 13". Can you please explain why this limitation exists when used with the recirculating vent option which presumably has its intake and effluent on the front of the microwave. Thanks in advance!
Asked by: Er9165
Hello, This is Lisa from GE. With a cabinet deeper than 13" you will not be able to access the screws located on the top of the microwave that are used to remove the front grill. You will also block the air vents. Thanks for checking.

Customer Reviews

1.5 cu. ft. Over the Range Microwave with Recirculating Venting in Stainless Steel is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 480.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to operate We purchased this appliance to replace the original model from 1989. It was slightly larger than we wanted but it is very easy to operate and does everything we want. We are very happy with our purchase.
Date published: 2017-05-08
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Inefficient The vent doesn't work, both settings are equally loud, and the turntable doesn't work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didnt last long Barely over a year old and board goes bad. Second one that did this. No more for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great microwave We purchased this microwave a month ago and find it easy to use and very versatile.
Date published: 2017-02-02
Rated 2 out of 5 by from pick another model We replaced a 15 year old GE microwave with this one because it had similar features (we love the 1-6 minutes 1-touch settings & the add 30 seconds buttons!). This one seems like cheaper quality though. We really don't feel like it will last more than a few years. The vent fan is really loud. We used to be able to use the microwave and watch tv or talk on the phone; not so with this model. There are 2 fan settings, but there really isn't much difference between them. Also, there are 2 popcorn button settings, but both of them are too long and burn the bags. Finally, the door squeaks every time you open it. I called Home Depot customer service and they said there wasn't anything that could be done about that. We returned this microwave and got another model.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My 2-1/2 year test drive I bought this microwave over two and a half years ago, it broke. I called a repair man to have it fixed due to warranty having expired. The repairman tested it and stated it would be cheaper to buy a new one , the magnetrons went out. I was a firm believer in GE products until this purchase. Any major appilance purchase should at least last 5 years or be warrantied similarly if you want consumers to have confidence in their purchase of your product. This microwave vent fans turn on automatically when cooking ontop of stove and your not able to turn it off manually, not even with the button on display. If it turns on automatically you have to wait for it to turn off automatically and it's loud. The unit itself is pretty loud when in use. I've bought GE washer and dryer over six years ago, had one problem with it, had it repaired for $68. Bought GE refridgerator over 5 years ago no problems. Most resent purchase of microwave has me skeptical about any future purchase of GE products, according to repairman, "cheaply made!" If this is what has become of GE products, I'll test drive another brand. My advise for anyone intending to purchase this microwave, Shop around, unless your happy with replacing it in about 3 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replace 10 year old unit Our old unit just stopped after over 10 years of use. Went back with it's replacement model, very happy with this unit. Added bonus is that the fan will auto turn on if it detects anything below steaming or boiling to help move the air. Very happy with this unit so far.
