    product unreliable

    Microwave is only 2 years old with very little use and the control screen has shorted. Extreamly unhappy with G.E. product.

    Do not Buy Product is failure prone

    The control panel failed with-in 30 days, now 2 years later the carasoule failed and is going to cost us a few hundred dollars to fix, these are supposed to be top of the line appliances, we have the matching range which has not had any issues.

    Good looks but can't go the distance

    This unit is about to have its second birthday but may not survive until then. Its has failed twice in its short life, first within 6 months the control panel had to be replaced, and now the microwave generator is not working. Service calls and fees have me looking at an alternative for the next 5 years. It is a shame that something so young and pretty may never see maturity.

    Sadly this review is consistent

    I see that the other reviews echo my same experience. 18 months old and it has completely died. $500.00 MIGHT fix it. After having a horrible time with Sears getting it installed I am now faced with an overall horrendous experience. Do not buy this product and definitely not at Sears

    I purchased this with a GE range and I am praying that does not fail now.

  5. 1 out of 5 stars.


    The control panel on this microwave gave me problems within 3 months. Possible problem is the panel is not suitable for being located right above the cooking surface. After 1 year, of course, the panel finally stopped working, and it cost $600 just for the panel, not including service, and there is no guarantee that the same problem would not reoccur. I would give this product a Zero if I could. Now I have to find a similar product to fit in my built in cabinets with an external venting system that comes close to matching my set of GE Cafe appliances. It looks great though.
