Just what we were looking for We were pleased to find that GE still makes a model equivalent to the one we are replacing, which finally gave up the ghost after 16 years. We like the "one touch" buttons, the space saver profile, and that it comes in the bisque color. No other brand offers as much for a similar price. We always buy GE, for reliability. The light on this model is in the rear center of the unit. Our old unit had lights on either side, which provided more light directly on the range burners. July 28, 2013
This product was a great value We like how this microwave looks over our range, we are pleased with the features it offers and feel it was a great value. June 30, 2013
Good microwave for the money I like the space saving feature, the turntable, and the quick buttons. The fan is noisy when running and there isn't a light inside the oven. June 14, 2013
Nice product for rental unit We needed to replace the microwave in our rental unit. This is a nice, economical product that met our needs. It is simple to use and has a good appearance in our vacation resort condo. February 24, 2013
great product but durability not so good We just replaced the General Electric JVM1540 microwave we bought five years ago with the same model when it went completely dead. After finding out that a service call and repair would be at least half or more of the purchase price of a new one we just bought the same model again because up till now we could not have been happier with it's performance and features. (The replacement cost of the magnetron, the high voltage transformer or the control panel are all close to or over $100.00 just for the part when I priced them.) I guess we will have to keep our fingers crossed this one lasts as long. February 17, 2013
I have had this product for years and it has been great ! We use this microwave daily and I just found instructions in the front about how to set an automatic light OFF/ON and I never knew I had the option! It is just the size we needed when we redid the kitchen and made a space for an over the stove microwave. LOVE IT My husband broke the handle on it but it was easy to find a new handle and install October 13, 2012
Nice, but a couple issues Very nice microwave. Cooks excellent. Have a loose piece of something broken in the door, and sometimes the fan just comes on and won't shut off. Suppose I should get service out to look at it. September 4, 2012
A quality product, very easy to use. I shopped around and found this to be a super value where I bought it. The color matched perfectly the bisque GE stove I have. I would buy another one today if I could get the same deal. August 24, 2012
