Microwave great, wait for it to arrive not so grea
The microwave itself is wonderful. Great product from GE. Hope this lasts as long as the other one. Took away one star for Best Buy as I ordered this in Feb, received it in June. Part of it was manufacture backorder, but the other part was Best Buy not following through on orders not completed. All I can say is order ahead of any appliance failure as it may take months to be completed.
GE wins again! I replaced a 17 year old GE microwave with another GE and it lives up to my expectations once again with its functionality and features. The product was on back order for 2 months and I had the option of selecting another, but no...I patiently waited and it’s worth it!!! Thank you GE and thank you Bestbuy for a GREAT installation!
Hey, there! Thanks for giving us your feedback. We are so happy to hear that you are satisfied with your range! If you ever need anything in the future, please feel free to reach back out. Welcome to the GEA family! -HannahGEA

I am in my mid 70's and this installation was barely within my capability. The oven is a bit heavy to lift into place, given the close fit between cabinets and the precise attachment to the wall that is required. I expect to have to hire a handyman to install the next one because this oven looks like it may last longer than my ability to do the work.
We were expecting stainless interior, but found blue porcelain inside like Grannie's old potty. (This model wasn't available for viewing at the store.)
It was by chance that we bought this Over the Range model. Our Best Buy sales person found the perfect fit. We were concerned because we have a high granite backsplash and our old unit barely fit and most of the new ones would not because of greater rear height. This G.E. unit, however, is perfect and actual fits better than the old one. But a surprise was coming: It works great and has a larger capacity and large turntable. Controls are easy to use and the unit is twice as quiet as the one it replaced. Excellent purchase!
I love the fact that you can turn the turntable off. Sometimes you have a large item that won't turn. The fan works well as does the lighting. The microwave is much quieter than my old one and looks terrific over the stove. The best part is that I used Best Buy's team to remove the old microwave and install the new one. They were very efficient and cleaned up after they finished.
A:AnswerHi Monica - Thanks for choosing GE! Model JNM7196SKSSis factory-assembled for recirculating but can be converted to vent outside. Also, Model JVM7195SKSS is the same microwave except factory-assembled for outside exhaust. The GE over-the-range models are all designed for adaptation for the following three types of ventilation: 1. Outside Exhaust (Vertical – Delivered from factory in vertical position. Except JNM7196SKSS). 2. Outside Exhaust (Horizontal). 3. Recirculating (Non-vented ductless). Keep in touch at GEAppliances.com. Sue
A:AnswerHi Casey- It's nice to hear from you! We certainly appreciate your loyalty. Yes, GE® 1.9 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Sensor Microwave Oven with Recirculating Venting JNM7196DKWW can be installed in a 36" space with optional 36" Side Filler Panel Kit JX36DWW (sold separately). Enjoy! SUE@GEA
A:AnswerHi Bristol! Thanks for reaching out! All 30" over-the-range microwaves are approximately the same width, and are designed to fit into a 30" wide cabinet opening. Therefore, any of our 30" over-the-range models will work as a replacement for an existing 30" over-the-range model. This makes choosing a replacement microwave easy! - NOTE: When replacing an over-the-range microwave, the mounting bracket included with the new microwave should be used since the mounting bracket is specific to each model. The new screws, bolts, and exhaust adapter should also be used. - With that being said, the new model that you've got your eye on here will make for a wonderful replacement! Hope this helps! -Michael@GEA
A:AnswerHi Wayne - Thanks for considering GE Model JNM7196BLTS! A 30" minimum width is required. Product Dimensions are as follows: 16 5/16 H x 29 7/8 W x 15 9/16 D. We suggest viewing the Specifications document at the following link for all product and cabinet dimensions: https://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=JNM7196SK_C3.pdf - Keep in touch at GEAppliances.com.

A:AnswerHi there, and thanks for reaching out to us about this over-the-range microwave! We know how important a filler kit can be to get the right appearance for your unit, and are glad to advise. The two kits have different dimensions. JX36DSS has dimensions of 16"H x 3"W x 14-1/8"D while JX36BSS measures 15.66"H x 3” W x 13.82” D. JX36BSS is the filler kit that would be compatible with this model. We hope this information is helpful, and are happy to assist with any other inquiries or concerns. Wishing you all the best! -Sarah@GEA
A:AnswerHi there, we appreciate you reaching out to us. Yes, the charcoal filter for this microwave (WB02X10956) can be purchased on our parts website or at a GE Appliances dealer. In addition, the charcoal filter should be replaced when it is noticeably dirty or discolored. Lastly, the fan is designed to help protect the electronic components and help the cooking area get rid of excess heat, but it's not specifically manufactured to purify cooking odors. We hope this is all useful information and we're wishing you the best. - Guy@GEA
A:AnswerHi! Thanks for asking, we'd be more than happy to help. We're sorry to hear about your sensor malfunctioning, we can understand how that would be frustrating. We took a look and are seeing that your current model, JVM7195SKSS, is still being manufactured. We hope this helps! Best wishes. -Michael@GEA
