Chef Connect Feature

Select models of Café and GE Profile™ Series Freestanding Ranges, Vent Hoods and Over-the-Range Microwaves offer the Chef Connect feature. This feature allows you to synchronize the clocks on your Range and Over-the-Range Microwave as well as synchronize the Range burners with the Over-the-Range Microwave or Vent Hood vent fan and light. Both the Range and Microwave or Vent Hood must have the Chef Connect feature.

How Chef Connect Works

Chef Connect uses Bluetooth technology to pair compatible Chef Connect Ranges, Hoods and Over-the-Range Microwaves. To pair the Microwave with the Range, press and hold the Chef Connect pad for 3 seconds and follow the instructions that come with the Microwave.
When paired with a Chef Connect Range, the Over-the-Range Microwave clock will sync to the Range clock, so you only have to set or change one clock. Additionally, you can set the Microwave surface light and/or the vent fan to come on automatically when the Range burners are used. When the device is paired, the light and fan will turn ON at the Default Sync Settings upon receiving a command from the Range or Cooktop. It will remain ON at that setting until you change it.
