    Can't leave it plugged in

    I had this less than 2 months when I had to have it serviced because it wouldn't turn off unless you left the door open or unplugged it. 18 months after the servicing it started doing it again, in fact, it has even started without anyone being near it. The last thing I do before I go to bed or leave the house is make sure it's unplugged. Now it's starting to make a slight hissing noise when it cooks, so needless to say, this thing has got to go and I WON'T get another GE

    I've installed a dozen of them......

    As a cabinetmaker/kitchen designer, I'm always looking for the best bang for the buck for my customers. When it comes to building in a microwave into a custom kitchen, this one is my 'go to' unit. I've installed a least a dozen over the years since it was introduced including my own kitchen. All of my customers love it. It's sleek, fits into an upper cabinet depth, has most of the features of higher-priced units and, if it does need maintenance, it's easily removed. Of course any appliance out of the box might experience a problem and that's unfortunate. In my experience, however, there haven't been any failures so don't let that be your final decision maker.

    not a replacement for JEM 31

    Had to replace 3rd JEM 32 (over 20 yrs), Got a PEM31 in stainless steel. Installed with existing hanger kit and door would not open as there is another cabinet to the left. I assumed (bad move) that the stainless overly was culprit and exchanged for a black version. Tried to install but found rear hanger holes changed. Redrilled but door still will not open. Now I am stuck with this microwave on the counter and an unsightly gap in my cabinets.

    OutStanding!

    Have had lots of microwaves--this is the best. The express feature is great- fast and easy! Doesnt get any better. I usually buy GE appliances---can't beat their reliability. I've never had a problem with anything made by GE. I wish I cld same the same about some of the others like Japanese or Korean made.

    Great for under cabinet use

    My only disappointment was the door latch cover. Service took care of this under warranty . I also noticed the same problem while reading previous reviews several months prior to buying. I was disappointed that this was not taken care of before I purchased mine.
