Questions & Answers


What are the accent colors for the door on the stainless steel model? I can't tell if it's black or grey?

Asked by Colorquestioner August 7, 2016

GE website - APPEARANCE Case Color Gray Color Appearance Stainless Steel Door Color Stainless Steel

is the finish on the black glossy or more matte?

Asked by Jonathan October 28, 2017

do you have online installation instructions for GE JVM6175DKBB over the range microwave?

Can I have this delivered to the store for pickup in slate so I don’t have to pay for shipping?

Asked by Chris January 30, 2018

We were told today that since they did not have it in stock in the store, we would have to pay $59 stocking fee and pick it up in the store. That doesn't make much sense to me since they have to stock it at some point if they have it out on the floor but this is what the Home Depot employee told us.

Does this microwave can be installed without external exhaust?

Asked by Ness February 16, 2017


Does it serve as a vent over the stove?

Asked by Livy July 20, 2018

Yes it has a recirculating vent built in. Our unit worked great for a year and a half, then died all on it's own . The repair (new circuit board) would have cost quite a bit more than we paid for the unit, so we just bought another microwave---but NOT a G.E.

Does this microwave control panel light up. Can't see the writing on panel

Asked by Kathy October 16, 2016

Seriously - SUE at GE - you are referring people to an $1100 microwave just to get a panel that customers can see???

Can the microwave be vented internally?

Asked by Wallace July 2, 2016


What color is the time display, white or green?

Asked by Rikan11 September 3, 2019

It's a BRIGHT WHITE, which stands out in my kitchen, where everything else is a cool green.

I don’t see a rack, does it not come with one?

Asked by Bopa January 19, 2020

I did not get a rack with mine, so I'm guessing no rack. My last microwave had one. I took it out because I never used it. I believe there's a way to turn the turn table off. I've not used that feature yet though.

can this unit be hooked to an existing wall vent feed as was the previous ge type microwave? In o...

Unhappy with product in that plastic sheet covering control panel has split and started to peel off. I want a replacement oven

Response from GE_AppliancesJanuary 15, 2021
Hi Neurobeaver649 - Thanks so much for doing business with us! Many of our microwaves are now packed with a plastic film applied to the outside of the door and control panel. This is similar to the film that would cover chrome trim parts to prevent scratching during shipping and is used for the same reason on the microwave. We recommend removing the film before using the microwave. This is a static cling film that should peel off easily. We hope this information is helpful to you. - Sharon@GEA

Installing was very straightforward although I only had to circulate the vent. It looks great and so far works great.

It’s Loud
Customer review from logo
We bought this microwave because it was highly rated. It is aesthetically pleasing and easy to use. We like the “EXPRESS COOK” buttons. This microwave is loud when in use. So much so that we question whether there is something wrong with it. It functions properly and gets plenty of use. But right out of the box we noticed it to be significantly louder than our previous microwave. Hopefully that’s just how it is and there isn’t an issue or internal damage from shipping.
