Questions & Answers


I don't understand watts. Whats the disadvantage to having 800 vs 1100? Like the size and color, don't want to be disappointed with performance

Asked by lovetheslate August 25, 2016

BuddahBuddah, it's Einstein, not einstien. If you are going to be rude, at least try to spell correctly. Einstein, you're not. 1100 is definitely better than an 800 watt microwave.

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

Asked by Jackie June 20, 2014

Optional trim kit: JX827EFES

What color is this microwave, I'm looking for brown or cooper

Asked by Rhoni November 1, 2016

slate. it says slate.

Can this be mounted on a cabinet ?

Asked by Fred November 6, 2017

Hi Fred- Yes, GE Profile™ Series PEM31SFSS is compatible with Optional Undercabinet Hanging Kit JXA019K (sold separately). Enjoy! SUEatGEA

Can you tell me the exact width of the unit? Is it actually 24" (it says "approximately") or som...

Asked by Steve August 28, 2018

Hi Steve- The microwave is slightly less than 24" (23 7/8"). Approximately Product Dimensions (WxHxD) (in.) 24 in x 12 1/8 in x 12 7/8 in). If the unit is being installed in a cabinet, we encourage you to view the Quick Specs at the following link for details: - Keep in touch! SUE@GEA

Is there a built in trim kit for the GE Profile Microwave PEM31SFSS

Asked by Debra August 23, 2015

Hello Debra, This is Joyce from GE Appliances. I will be happy to help! Yes... this model has two optional built in kits available. Optional 27" Built-In Trim Kit JX827SFSS or Optional 30" Built-In Trim Kit JX830SFSS. Thanks so much for checking with us. Have a good day!

I would like to put this inside my cabinet. Would this fit in a space that is WxHxD = 28.5 x 15 x...

Asked by Liam February 26, 2019

No, unfortunately, it is 12" in depth total. The feet are under 12", about 11.75" I think, but even if your cabinet doesn't have doors, I think it's too shallow to sit on the cabinet shelf. The width and height are fine, but your cabinet is too shallow for this to fit inside the cabinet.

What do you mean when you say receptacle cutout inside and receptacle outside

Asked by Bee July 5, 2017

Hi Bee- This is Sue at GE Appliances. Thanks for considering our GE Profile™ Series 1.1 Cu. Ft. Countertop Microwave Oven PEM31SFSS! The microwave is compatible with Optional 30" Built-In Trim Kit JX830SFSS or Optional 27" Built-In Trim Kit JX827SFSS. When installed in a cabinet with the trim kit, the receptacle for the microwave can be installed inside the cabinet cutout or outside the cabinet cutout. We suggest to view the Installation Instructions at the following link: - Thanks for checking with us!

Will a 11 1/4 inch plate fit the turntable?

Asked by Karen December 22, 2019

Hello Kare - Thank you for your question; we are glad to assist. This microwave turntable size is 10.625". A 11 1/4 inch plate will not fit the turntable. Thanks for checking. Olga

Can the turn table be turned over to cook something larger?

Asked by Boss April 13, 2020

Hi Boss - Yes, the turntable can be turned off to accommodate larger dishes. Thanks for viewing GE! Sue

Perfect size!
Customer review from logo
I have an old kitchen with steel cabinets. I replaced an old, huge hood style microwave with this one. The size is absolutely perfect. It is not as powerful as my old unit. But it has not been an issue. I did put it over the cooktop. I have a ceiling vent fan.

Great features
Customer review from logo
Our new GE replaced the exact same Model Microwave we had installed 15 years earlier which would still be working if our son hadn’t place his snow mittens which were ladened with metal inside of them. Although they look identical, this new one had so many features the older model didn’t. We use it every day.

Good choice
Customer review from logo
The large capacity and instant cook features made this a good choice! With the trim kit it was an easy installation for this all thumbs handyman. I only wish that it was an 1000 watt instead of an 800 watt.

Customer review from logo
This is our second purchase of this model to replace a built in unit. The first unit developed an electrical problem. I did not explore a repair due to my fear of a possible house fire. This unit has adequate size and power for a home kitchen application. My wife “loves it.” The controls are easy and simple. The glass plate included is durable. It is attractive and complements our other black colored appliances.

Went on for a few seconds now nothing works. No power to the unit.

The keypad is very difficult to see because the numbers and letters are too small and they are not white or wide enough. This also makes it hard to press within the space especially if you have arthritis. Also, it takes too many unnecessary steps to program .

Looks good and sounds ... VERY quiet
Customer review from logo
Looks great with the trim kit. Goes well with our other GE appliances. Trim kit wasn't the easiest installation, but I'm no pro and still got it done in one evening. VERY quiet microwave. Performance great so far. Fits in the space if the older model (after creating an extra inch of depth to work with).

Quiet microwave!
Customer review from logo
The microwave works great and is very quiet. Although we would have preferred a sleeker design, the features sold us. Very quiet and runs great!
