Control panel burned out in 17 months
Will not buy another GE. We are finding out as we replace our old GEs with new ones, they do not last like they did previously.

Had great features
Bought this microwave and it made a loud buzzing sound when running, but not ever time I ran it. I returned it after 2 weeks because it made me nervous and they gave me another one. It too was loud at times and I thought well that must be how its supposed to sound. It quit on me after 2 years and I took to a repair shop. They said the wiring was completely melted and they replaced it. It worked even better meaning cooked the food quicker for 1 more week and quit again. Took it back to the repair man and he said the power supply control panel was burnt out. Very costly to end up with no microwave. I have a 12+ year old microwave not GE brand that is still humming away but is too small inside for my needs and does not have the great features that the GE had before it went KAPUT on me.

Stopped working after 2 yrs
Product was always kind of tempramental, but still ran. Now on Christmas morning of all times, it stopped working completly. I've had it 1yr and 10 months. Last GE I will ever own and it's a shame because they used to be known for quality.

I like the child lock feature and how easy it is to use. Some microwaves are very hard to figure out. But this one was made with using common sense. Thanks.

this product has great features and takes care of all my needs in a microwave
This microwave has exceeded all my expectations for ease of use and features that are what I need. I bought one of these in 1981 and it just died last year. So when I went and looked at microwaves to replace it i saw this model and having had great performance from my previous model I opted to buy another GE like it. The first time I used it I was amazed at the changes that had taken place with the features and technology, they are easier to use and most applications take only one button to press and my food is cooked the way I like it. I also like the fact that it now says the food is ready when done as well as beeps to let you know it is ready. I can say that I am happy with both microwaves and if I need another one in the future I will be sure to buy a GE again. I had another brand and my GE outlasted it by years, so I am confident in the product working for years to come.

Keypad will not work
I spent $100 on this microwave 2 years ago and now the kepyad will not work. So it basically lasted long enough for the regular warranty and the extended warranty to expire. I usally love GE but this microwave is a bust. My other GE microwave is over 10 years old and still works. Just sad....

This product stopped working
We purchased this product in August of this year. It was perfect for our needs, and it did things that were very convenient until it just stopped working. I pushed the reheat button, heard a very short noise as if it was about to start, but instantly everything in the unit shutdown. I checked the power outlet and even plugged it into an alternate outlet - still nothing. I am very disappointed.
