5.0 out of 5 stars So Far, So Good March 20, 2012
By Elaine
The GE Profile Micro/Convection oven I had installed two weeks ago has been great so far. First, the programming panel has a dial knob (turn and set the cook time from 15 sec on up). It took some getting used to, but I like it. Not only can you microwave food, you can bake cookies/cook a roast just as you would in a regular oven. When using the convection/bake/cook, the two heavy duty cooking racks are a nice addition (remove when microwaving). The turn table is glass; I would prefer metal. When food is done, four beeps let you know - three beeps too many. Digital instructions on the panel often tell you what to do next. For example, if you are defrosting, at mid point, you will see "Turn Food Over." Nice feature. The GE Profile is roomy (and heavy 83 lbs) with a clear view of what is cooking inside. Also,the microwave power level can be changed. I left mine as it came from factory - a cup of water that took 3 mins 25 seconds to boil in my old (Sharp Convection) micro took 3 mins in my new one. Because this microwave has so many features (Fast Bake, Convection, Microwave, Defrost, Micro Express, etc) take 30 mins and read the instruction manual! Finally, the appliance is great looking.

3.0 out of 5 stars Oven: Good. Installation: Problematic. June 17, 2012
I had an older GE microwave above my range that died after about 8 years. When looking for a replacement I decided to go for another similar GE in order to swap it out easily, figuring it would use similar hardware. That was my first mistake.

There's a steel plate used to mount the oven on the wall plus three big screws that go in from the cabinet on top. Not only is the plate different (requiring removal of old & installation of the new), not only are the anchor points in different places (requiring new holes), but they're placed just marginally off the old anchor points. Meaning that the integrity of the wood where you need to drill is compromised from the old screw holes. It required me to install a whole new shelf in the upper cabinet as well as trying my best to fill the old stud holes with wood filler and hoping it would be strong enough when I re-drilled.

Here's the kicker... the installation hardware comes with butterfly screws as well as two thick wood screws for mounting to the wall studs. Unfortunately, those two wood screws are made of very cheap & weak metal. I pre-drilled guide holes as per the instructions, but when it came to screwing the screws in- the heads twisted right off on both of them (and I was extra careful with the second one after the first one broke). The screws were already 3/4 of the way in, leaving me with no way to remove them and blocking the ability to try again in the same spot (a spot required for proper installation). The oven isn't light, the installation requires heavy duty hardware, why ship the microwave with such crappy screws?


Buy your own mounting hardware.
When it comes to buying a replacement appliance, there's no value in nepotism.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stopped Working after 15 Just Months! May 24, 2013
We bought this microwave cause it matched the GE Profile Range we had purchased previously. It looks great!
However, after less than 2 months of use, we had to replace the over the range light bulbs; which is apparently a common issue from the reviews on the ge website. Worked fine for a year after that. Last week we had an issue where the microwave started beeping to notify us that there was an issue with the keypad. Turning the power saver off and on cleared the message, and we continued to use it uninterrupted for another week; until yesterday. After heating lunch, I tried to warm a bottle of milk in this microwave. After 30 seconds it was still cold, so I tried again. At that point the microwave filled with smoke and the kitchen started to smell like something was burning. We were told by the sales guy at the store that it is the "magnatron" that went (which is covered under warranty, but the labor is not; not to mention the $99 just to have the GE repair guy come to my house. It sounds like something I wouldn't trust to be repaired.

Worked great for the first 2 years than completely broken. AFter charging me $99 to look at my microwave, the GE repairman indicated that the repair would cost over $400. Wow - what a ripoff. I expected a profile to last a little longer than that. If you want to replace this in 2 years - go ahead and buy. Otherwise, look for a brand other than GE.

1.0 out of 5 stars STAY AWAY June 27, 2013
Bought this less than a year ago. It is the worst microwave I've ever owned.

The customer support is pathetic - they'll make an appointment, and the repairman doesn't have the parts on the truck.

The customer service line supports this pathetic practice.

I will NEVER by a GE product again.

Wish I could give it no stars.

1.0 out of 5 stars GE Profile PVM1790-Don't Buy!!! February 10, 2014
Among the other problems mentioned, the glass panel in the door shatters when the convection oven goes over 400 degrees. And don't even think about installing a new door yourself, as GE insists only their repair people can do the work for $150 plus the cost of the door. Zero stars would be totally appropriate.

1.0 out of 5 stars 17 month / $600 appliance. October 11, 2013
By B. Viti
It was ok. Convection and bake worked OK. A lot of buttons to push just to get it to go. Usually I hit the 30 second button and then turned the knob. Also cannot see non illuminated buttons in a semi- dark corner of kitchen. However, the unit stopped working after 17 months. Just passed the warranty. Not happy.
