We have a 15" depth cabinet above our stove without outside ventilation. Was very upset to learn that GE no longer made a front venting microwave (mw) when ours went out as all our other appliances are GE. So...we ordered the bump out kit which took almost a month to arrive. Tonight we installed it, and I'm not pleased at all. The mw sticks out 3" past our cabinets. That's 2" of metal on the top of the mw and 1" of the venting. I would have been better off adding pieces of sheetrock or wood behind the mw bracket that came with the mw, building it out 2", then having it protruding 3" in front of the cabinets. I may still, but also not crazy about adding even more holes to the above cabinet. Please bring back at least 1 model in front venting mw, this has been a needless headache!

disappointed in GE…again
Having to sait two weeks and pay an additional $131 for a spacer template is ridiculous. I try to support American companies, but these tactics show a certain contempt for the customer. Why doesn’t Home depot carry these in store? They must sell hundreds.

Hi there, thanks for taking the time to leave a review. We did want to let you know that pricing can be dependent on several factors. The economic elements include distribution, warehousing, and marketing costs, which account for a portion of the selling price of the part. Other factors like usability (cosmetic vs. functional) and availability also contribute to pricing. If you've ever got questions or concerns about your appliances, know that we're happy to help. Best wishes. -Michael@GEA

Paid $248 for GE OTR microwave and had to pay $119 for bracket. Really overpriced. But you have to have it to install under 15" cabinets.

Extremely overpriced, very disappointed in GE. When you are already spending multiple hundreds of dollars on an appliance it should be expected to have SIMPLE mounting adapters available at a fair price. This is a piece of sheet metal that bumps 3 inches and is half the cost of a new microwave... No thanks, I'll take my business elsewhere.

The part was a necessity. We went with deeper cabinets in our new kitchen making over the range microwaves not fit without this part. The price was a little high and the $15 appliance delivery fee was ridiculous but because of the part we can use our microwave.
