Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by contortionist great microwave, when it works
It cooks fast, the sensor cooking works well, the vent fan is good, has three speeds. The range light has two settings, but to change the bulb you have to be something of a contortionist and good with tools. I had it two years when the magnetron died. I got a new magnetron for free, but the service call was over $200. Now it is just over five years old and the control panel has gone on the fritz. Just went out and ordered a new microwave, a different brand.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Randoushka Quality standards way below expectation
Received it on April 22 and 2 weeks ago, the handle started peeling off like a paper.... I was told that I should not cook on the power heater which is located right under the handle. To buy an expensive item like this and then be restricted with how I should cook because the handle does not withstand heat!!!!!!!!!!!! Why would you make an "over the range" microwave if it cannot sustain heat???? The GE rep I spoke to asked me to try the new handle that she ordered for me prior to returning it as they stand behind their products.
Another issue with it is that the maximum weight on the defrost feature is lb1.0... and it is not as fast as my previous 12 year old over.... [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JFRICE44 Great Microwave with great features!
Bought to replace earlier GE model - which was in turn a replacement for an even earlier GE model! This is 3rd GE microwave since 1984!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MaryG Love the microwave, not so good as a vent
The product looks great and matches all the other appliances in my kitchen.
The microwave works well and I love the microwave features.
My only complaint is with the ability to function as a vent. The suction is not nearly strong enough to actually pull vapors / smoke from the stove top.
I even bought one model, and then replaced with this one because it has a 5-speed vent, on two sides of the bottom of the microwave. The speed of the air exiting the top of the microwave is much stronger than the speed of the suction on the bottom of the microwave. The suction is barely stong enough to hold up a paper towel.
If I had know this - I would have redesigned my kitchen to have a "real" vent, and placed a built in microwave elsewhere. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by sunkist54 No light on screen and black interior.
This is the fifth GE Profile Over-the-Range microwave I have owned in various houses-and my least favorite! First, there is no lighting on the control panel except in the clock area. My eyesight is good and I still have to turn every light in the kitchen on to check the eleven controls around the Dial. They are still almost unreadable in their murky gray color. And why the Black interior? The whole appliance is depressing. What were your engineers/designers thinking? You should have stuck with what worked.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mcliffordgoo DOA Upon Installation
We got this microwave with out new home. The builder noticed a fan issue immediately during our pre-settlment walk through. The fan was replaced and it heated water but wouldn't cook a 3 oz. bag of popcorn to completion. GE wanted to replace another part but the builder helped us get a new unit installed. Our fingers are crossed that this microwave will work better than the first one. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DJG50 Didn't think i would like the dial in the control panel, but i do
didn't want a model with the Dial in the control panel but after using it for a couple of weeks we really do like it. You can edit the cook time with the Dial while the microwave is running but i still like having the Add 30 sec button. Exhaust fan works great. Still learning all the options. So far Cooking Menu has met all our needs.
I think the product was over-priced but i wanted it to match my oven.
