Customer Questions & Answers

Is this microwave safe to install inside a kitchen cabinet opening?

This cabinet previously held a microwave with a trim kit but cabinet is only depth of 12 inches. Im concerned about the exhaust. Also is a trim kit available for this microwave?

Is this unit exactly 24 inches wide or is it a tad less?

Is this unit exactly 24 inches wide or is it a tad less?
Asked by: Gramps
Hello Gramps - this is Nancy at GE Appliances and we are happy to help you. The dimensions on this microwave are listed as approximately 24" wide. If you are wanting to place it in a cabinet, then it should be installed with the approved trim kit so there is adequate airflow around it. If it is installed on a shelf, then the air clearance requirement is 3" on both sides, 3" on the top, and 1" in the rear. We hope this helps! Thanks for checking with us!

Customer Reviews

1.1 cu. ft. Countertop Microwave in Black is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 302.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Same size as old one (almost) We bought this to replace worn out GE microwave of very similar size, mounted under cabinet. This is the third GE microwave in this location in over 25 years, so we're happy with previous performance of these products. However, all three units have different mounting, so now we have three sets of mounting holes (12 total) drilled through shelf unit mounts under. Too bad engineering department couldn't have passed on same mounting layout configuration over the years. This unit also has fewer features (i.e. sensor cooking), but has a hefty price. Looking forward to long lasting appliance.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing I bought this model to replace my GE JEM31BF undercabinet microwave oven that no longer heated. This is the only model of the same power that could be mounted the same way under the cabinet. So basically I had to buy this model to replace my old one. So here are the disappointing differences: 1. Screw holes were not in the same place for mounting 2. Size is a bit taller so that items I stored on the counter under the old microwave will no longer clear the new microwave 3. Even though the new microwave is supposedly larger (ie., by cubic feet), it has a smaller turntable and less clearance from the back to the front such that I can no longer use my splatter cover - it is now too large for the new microwave 4. The controls on the older microwave were easier to see due to lighter background on the numbers/lettering. With the new one I have to shine a light on the controls to see what I am programming. 5. Quality is not as good in the assembly -- there are uneven gaps in the way the wall fit inside the microwave 6. The controls are harder to activate. Sometimes I cannot get a connection when I press the numbers/functions pads. And they are flimsy compared to the old controls - They are easily dented when pressing on them. 7. Although I have only used the microwave for a day, it appears that at least one of the best features of the old one has disappeared. This is to select "reheat" and let the microwave figure it out. Now you have to push "reheat" and select a code for the type of dish you are warming up - the few selections to pick from are not very useful to me. 8. This is an expensive microwave oven for what it does. One can get much more powerful and higher quality for half the price - however if you want it to mount to your cabinet with just 4 screws this is all that is out there. A better option for me next time is to make a bracket under the cabinet to hold a microwave oven.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor performance and expensive as well! I'm so sorry I bought it! I ordered it over the phone since I loved my old one. Doesn't always rotate properly. Noisy! Everything sizzles even at lower temperature levels and has to be covered! A real pain! Much bigger than my old one! Makes noise when going! They only had black and you can barely see what the buttons say. I thought it was the same number as my old one but was I wrong!! Just awful! I paid too much as well! My biggest mistake of the year! I hate it!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Size and A Great Product We had one like it from GE before that lasted 5 years and loved it. So we bought this new model to replace it. This microwave is compact enough to fit on the counter without taking over the space, yet large enough to fit a dinner plate in it. It is powerful enough for our needs and it makes very little noise. Much more quiet than the last one. The buttons are straight forward and the door latch mechanism has been improved and works great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the under cabinet design; not the "updates" LOVE this microwave and free space on my counter, but it's time to make it 1000 W. Also, the mounting holes in the top have inconveniently changed; the turntable doesn't make a 1 minute rotation anymore; and the timer only beeps one time now. However, it's the most practical and used appliance in my kitchen, and I still love it! I've had a Spacemaker for over 25 years and would definitely buy it again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Unit Had this same model for 14 years. This one is amazingly quiet and had a few different features than the original. Only disappointment was the mounting holes for undercabient where different an had to order a mounting kit for it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MICROWAVE PEM31DFWW I think this product operates well, but at 800 W (Level 10) "can" overheat on defrost mode using weight designator.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as it used to be... Our old 1992 GE SpaceSaver finally gave out. We bought this as a replacement. It's tinny, had sharp edges on the door, you can't read the buttons even though it's eye level. People said it burned microwave popcorn. I thought it was because they used the popcorn button. I used it like I used to use the old one. Used power level 3 and stopped the turntable and it still burned. The one thing I do like about it is the turntable and the fact that you can turn it off if you want to. I didn't have that in my old one. If you don't need a space saving oven, I would not recommend this one. We had to have it because of the space on the shelf we have for an oven over our stove.
