GE 1.7 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Microwave with Sensor Cooking
I actually placed an order for this microwave in mid May. The item did not come in & order cancelled. I placed a second order early June which was ready for pick up late June, and was installed early July.
Installation was made using the previous wall bracket, but more holes were required to attach to the upper cabinet. Not too bad, took about an hour with 2 people.
The microwave operates as expected, although it is still new. Hope it lasts longer than the last one!
After researching several makes and models, I chose this one despite several critical reviews of the panel visibility and "tinny" door feel. I disagree that the type is hard to read, but my kitchen is well lit and I have decent eyesight. I do agree the door is noticeably less solid and heavy than our previous 2010 Profile model. We also notice the power seems less strong so we have to cook things a bit longer. The many features are convenient, so far we've only used less than half. I like the sleeker look, though slightly mismatched to our 2010 Profile range. Overall, we're pleased with the look and functions for the price.
Had to return the first one due to damage by whatever delivery service delivered it to Best Buy. Hate having to take it back, but guess it was my turn for this type of incident. The crew was great and ordered a replacement which arrived 5 days later and was in great shape. I was replacing an older GE model and luckily the older template bolt holes (wall and top) matched up so installation was a breeze. GE had confirmed the color was white (not green) for the LED and yes it was. All new units shipped after 11/2017 apparently have the new LED which matched my new stove. I know it seems minor but it’s those little things. Same with the dark gray color behind the glass. Funny how it is gray (in flash) but in my kitchen it looks black and matches the stove, same with the dark gray on the side. Yes, the letters are a little tough to see but it’s the glare from the plastic and not the actual letter coloring. My kitchen is pretty bright so shouldn’t be an issue. The fan is about as loud as my last one but the actual microwave seems much quieter. The microwave is working great and as you probably know Best Buy had the best price.

Ease of use
Quite an upgrade from a 20 year old Quasar. Had never installed an over the stove microwave, and it was fairly simple. Takes a little bit of time, but instructions were clear. Make sure you have a 3/16", 1/2", 5/8" and 1-1/2" drill bit on hand. Only complaint is one I had read in a couple reviews...... can't nuke for less than 1 minute, though I'm thinking the "melt" button may solve that problem. I often melt butter and that only takes 20-30 seconds. Will have to play with that.
A:AnswerHello Inquirer - this is Nancy at GE Appliances and we are happy to help you. This microwave is ready to be installed as exhausting outside through the top of the unit. However, you can change the venting to be internally vented or recirculating. Instructions for changing the venting can be found in the Owner's Manual. We hope this helps! Thanks for checking with us!
A:AnswerNick, I just bought model JVM6175SKSS to replace my old GE (that was at least 10 years old)
and it was a breeze to install with the same bracket and hole location for the plug.
All the settings pretty much the same too. Recommend
A:AnswerHi KenJ- Thanks for continuing to make GE Appliances a part of your home! We know you have choices and appreciate the trust you've placed in us. We are excited to hear your Spacemaker XL1800 provided you with great service for 14 years. GE® 1.7 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Sensor Microwave Oven JVM6175BLTS is a great choice. Sensor controls make programming easy and automatically adjusts time and power for delicious cooking results. We also offer JVM7195BLTS with a dark gray, easy clean enamel interior with steam clean option. Messes inside the microwave are easy to wipe away after steam loosens food grime. All 30" over-the-range microwaves are approximately the same width, and are designed to fit into a 30" wide cabinet opening. Each microwave comes with the mounting hardware (mounting bracket, screws, exhaust adapter), top and rear templates, and installation instructions needed to make installation a simple process. This makes choosing a replacement microwave easy. You may want to pair with GE Profile™ Series 30" Slide-In Electric Double Oven Convection Range PS960BLTS in Black Stainless. Keep in touch! SUEatGEA
A:AnswerHello Gardner! The great thing about 30" over-the-range GE microwaves is that they are a standard width. The JVM6175SKSS is a good replacement for your previous model - it is close in capacity and features. Thanks for your continued interest in GE Appliances! LEDA@GE
