    • Best answerHello Jack - this is Nancy at GE Appliances and I am happy to help you. This unit does not specifically have a boil setting; however, the closest setting would be the Convection Baking or the Convection Roasting because these settings use the circulating heated air to brown and seal in the flavor. I hope this helps! Thanks for checking with us!

    • Best answerHi-this is Sue from GE Appliances. All GE microwaves have a varistor that protects the control system from powerline surges. There is no need to add an additional surge protector to the line unless you just prefer to do so, or unless the you live in an area where heavy thunderstorms and lightning are common.

  • Q: What is the maximum baking temperature this unit goes up to?  (1 Answer)

    By maximus 

    • AHi Maximus- This is Sue at GE Appliances. It's exciting to hear of your interest in our Profile Series Convection/Microwave! Baking or roasting uses a heating element to raise the temperature of the air inside the oven. Any oven temperature from 225°F to 425°F may be set. A fan gently circulates this heated air throughout the oven, over and around the food, producing golden brown exteriors and rich, moist interiors. Thanks for checking with us!

The over-the-range microwave ovens are designed for adaptation to the following three types of ventilation: *Outside exhaust (horizontal), *Outside exhaust (vertical),*Recirculating (non-vented).

  • Q: after 15 years my Spacemaker died, will my new profile,(slight difference in height) fit on the same bracket?  (1 Answer)
    This question is for: GE - Profile 1.7 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Microwave - White

    By judie 

    • AHello judie - this is Nancy at GE Appliances and I am happy to help you. We're sorry to hear that your Spacemaker over-the-range microwave died, but we are glad to know that you received 15 years of service from your microwave. The good news is that the new microwaves are designed to work in the same cabinet space, even though the dimensions may be slightly different. You will, however, need to use the new mounting bracket and hardware as they have changed over the years and are not interchangeable. I hope this helps! Thanks for checking with us!
