      Not Good For Popcorn

      Posted
      BonnieB

      Bought this GE microwave PEM31SFSS in January 2016 to replace my previous 8 year old GE Profile microwave of the same size that blew its transformer. The old one worked great with microwave popcorn. This new one never popped microwave popcorn without burning. I tried all different methods of popping. Using the Popcorn feature -no, tried the Cook Time feature and set for 2.5 minutes on varying temp control settings and stopping at various times. All burned the popcorn. It appears because this unit is a smidge smaller inside than my previous version, the classic 3.5oz bags get hung up on the door and back of the microwave as the tray tries to rotate. It ends up burning a hole in the bag and the kernels burn too. GE tech came out and told me there is nothing to be done except use the smaller bags. The smaller bags are useless. I'm going to insist Best Buy or GE let me refund the darn thing.

      Great under the cabinet microwave

      I bought this microwave to replace an older GE Model that was installed underneath my cabinet and it fits perfectly. As other reviewers noted, they did change the location of the mounting screws, but all it took was a quick trip to home depot to find some new mounting hardware for a few dollar to get the job done. It's so quiet I can barely notice that it's running and it is quite spacious inside, despite being only cabinet depth. A great option for anyone who wants to save counter-space and doesn't have enough room for an over-the-stove microwave. Also, the slate color blends nicely with all my new Black Stainless appliances.

      I ORDERED THIS ONLINE, RECEIVED IT AND IT SQUEEKED FROM DAY ONE. IT WAS NOT CHEAP FOR A MICROWAVE, SO I CALLED AND WAS TOLD IT WAS PAST MY RETURN POLICY TIME. I CALLED WITHIN A WEEK OF SETTING IT UP, BUT APPARENTLY THE SHIPPING TIME IS INCLUDED IN THE RETURN PERIOD. I DIDNT GET AN EXTENDED WARRANTY BECAUSE I WANTED TO GET ONE IN PERSON AT THE STORE, TOO LATE. LESSON LEARNED, UNTIL THIS YEAR I WAS A ELITE MEMBER BEFORE THIS YEAR, SO I THOUGHT I HAD EXTRA TIME. LESSON LEARNED, NEED TO FIND A NEW APPLIANCE STORE.

      IT FITS IN SPACE FOR OLD SPACEMAKER PEM31SM1SS

      Posted
      Vinny

      I HAVE A BUILT IN SHELF THAT IS EXACTLY 12 INCH HIGH AND 24 INCH WIDE MADE FOR THE OLD SPACEMAKER II PEM31SM1SS AND THIS FITS. THIS ONE IS ABOUT 11 15/16 WIDE AND ABOUT 23 11/16 HIGH. ALSO THE SIDE CAN BEND IN A BIT BUT NOT THE TOP. BEST BUY WILL TAKE A RETURN BY MAIL OR DROP OFF. SO I SUGGEST YOU TRY IT AND IT MIGHT FIT YOUR SPACE AS IT IS SMALLER THAN THE STATED DIMENSIONS IN THE SPECS. IT IS WORTH THE TRY IF YOUR SPACE IS 12 X 24.

      I replaced a GE under cabinet microwave which quit working after only 4 years of use. This is supposed to be the model that replaced our old unit but unfortunately GE changed the dimensions and the location of the bolt holes on the top of this new model. This resulted in considerable work to re-engineer the installation and modify the cabinet trim to make it fit the limited space.

      Not built to last... 3rd time I've had to replace.

      This is now the 3rd time I've had to replace this microwave. The only reason I keep buying it is because of the depth... 1st purchase lasted for 4.25 years, 2nd lasted 4.5 years.... Let's see how long this one lasts. Magnetron magically burns out just after the extended warranty ends.... GE should replace this one at NO CHARGE, but fat chance...

      Missing Detail

      CarmelCountryHighlands

      Referred to this model to replace an older GE model for my built in cabinet. Width wise it fit exactly into the 24 inch wide space. However, what the description and specifications do not tell you, is that you need about an extra 1/2 inch of space on the left to open the door. Had no choice but to return the unit, for a more reasonably priced counter top model.

        Hello CarmelCountryHighlands - thank you for providing a review of your microwave. We are sorry to hear this microwave did not fit your current trim kit. This microwave trim kit requires a cabinet opening of 15" tall x 24-7/8" high. We're sorry, but older trim kits will not work with the current models. Thanks for providing your feedback.

      The microwave fit well into the built in space available. I used it for 18 months until I was getting power failure notices and then would not work after shutting the door. It was suggested the latch mechanism had failed and would cost $80 to bring into shop, $175 for them to come out for repair. Certainly not worth the trouble.
