Hi AJH60605-this is Sue from GE Appliances. We are sorry to hear of this unfortunate experience. This is certainly not the evaluation we would expect to hear as we are committed to manufacturing quality products for our consumers. We would like to communicate with you directly and would like some additional information. Please contact us by email at the following link: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/contact/- Also, we suggest to check the installation. Over-the-range models must be installed 66" from the floor to the bottom of the cabinet that the microwave attaches to. This can also be measured as 30" from the cooktop to the bottom of the cabinet it attaches to. For reference, see page 8 of the Installation Instructions online: http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-40675-2.pdf- Thanks for reaching out to us and for the opportunity to provide assistance.
