CVM2072SMSS is rated 1.5479 out of 5 by 73.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from 2nd Unit and Same Problem Bought one of these in 2008 and the touchpad stopped working in late 2011. Repairman gave an estimate to fix, and it was almost as much as a brand new one. So I bought a new one to match our GE Range and Fridge. Now, once again, it's not working!!! This is ridiculous. GE knows that this is a major problem as reviews like mine are all over the internet. They should've recalled them and replaced the part. Unless they do something about this, and give us some kind of credit, all of us who have had this microwave should never ever buy a GE product ever again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken key pad I'm another victim of this products sub-par and faulty key pad. Fortunately, I got Lowe's protection plan so it won't cost me anything be warned that this is problematic as I've seen others comment on it. I thought GE had quality manufacturing standards...clearly they're not making it to their appliance business.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Problems Continue Since Installation in June 2009 Not satisfied with the GE Cafe line up, had problems with the microwave, dishwasher, and range. Units installed in June 2009. The GE Cafe Microwave touchpad finally stopped working altogether (June 2015). In the past, disconnecting and reconnecting the microwave would fix the problem but now it will not. The dishwasher seal had to be replaced right after installation because it was leaking. The range had to be completely replaced after the first attempt to use it because it short circuited. The quality GE used to have is no longer available.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great features and sleek look but problems We love the look and features of this microwave but about 6 months after we got it, we began having problems with the screen locking up. We unplug it and plug it back in and then it works fine for a while. We are very careful not to slam the door as we've been told that can cause a fuse to blow. Lately it has locked up more frequently and for now the unplug/plug trick still works but eventually I'm guessing it won't. We love GE products but this is the second GE microwave to die a slow death before it's useful life should be over.
