    Great replacement for my old GE microwave

    i recently replaced my 22 year old GE over the range microwave with the above Spacemaker Love it, love it. I had to get used to the turntable(the old one didn't have one). Very fast cooker and reheater.

    Love the features!

    After suffering through 2 years of trying to use a competitors high end over-the-range microwave, I replaced it with this unit and couldn't be happier. After 2 years, it's really exciting to know that I can finally count on a device to work as it should. It is not complicated to use at all. I love all the features this product offers. In particular, I like the feature than after entering the cook time and pressing start, the device actually doesn't start heating for about 1 to 2 seconds. I see this delay as a very important safety feature and allows me to correct any mistake I might have made, such as starting without putting anything in the microwave. The interior is very easy to clean.

    Good standard features

    I had to replace my GE XL 1400 Space maker that stop working after 4 years and was too expensive to fix. I am giving its newer version a try and I hope it works longer than the previous model. The new model was easy to install and a good value for $.

    Can't beat a GE!

    After our 18 year old GE Microwave finally stopped working and we couldn't buy a new circuit board we bought this new Microwave. The price was great and it fit exactly into the spot where the old one came out of. All I had to do was enlarge the hole for the cord to go through.

    It works great and after getting used to the new locations for the buttons, it's like old times. The only thing I would lie better is if the under unit light was brighter. There's only one bulb and at 30" I feel that it's just too little light. Perhaps 2 lights and a switch to control them individually - that would be ideal.

    Overall - EXCELLENT PURCHASE. We have all GE appliances in our home. The refrigerator and the dishwasher are still going strong after 18 years. The double oven finally gave up and the circuit board is not available so we replaced it with a Sears model. But we believe in GE!!!

  5. 5 out of 5 stars.

    Great microwave & so easy to use and keep clean!

    We purchased a GE Profile Spacemaker microwave which lasted almost 11 yrs. We were very happy with it so today replaced it with the same microwave without the sensor cooking (as we never used that feature). Really hope this one gives the same outstanding performance our first one did.
