    Was fine until year 2 - broken door

    We've barely had our microwave mounted for 2 years when the door handle literally broke off as my husband went to open it today. Not just came off at the screws but completely broke. I would expect a GE product to last longer than 2 years, especially for the price and hassle of a wall-installation.

    works well but the door is really loud when you close it - sounds like you've slammed it close when you just really did it normal...

    I have found this microwave to be very noisy when opening and closing the door. Plus if you want to cook for less than 1 hour you have to perform several steps.

    Easy operation, basic settings. Door seems a little "tinny" when closing.

    Hot vapor from top vent hits the cabinet

    Depth of microwave unit is too short leaving the top vent too close to cabinet doors just above the microwave. Thus when hot vapor escapes from the top vent reaching the cabinets which will ultimately be compromised by the hot vapor,

    Great replacement for a similar GE microwave

    Nearly identical to the 12 year-old GE over the range microwave that it replaced. Only complaint is that the door is difficult to open, which was a problem on the first microwave that eventually resulted in broken handle and replacement of the microwave.

    Works as expected but has some issues with the filter size. They fall out when the door is slammed shut. A little it of thermal tape will do the trick.

    Despite a few negative reviews that I read, it runs quiet and the chime at the end of cooking time is not that annoying. The door is a little noisy when closed, but I can live with that. It runs great and is fairly simple to operate, plus it looks great in my kitchen.

    I have GE appliances in my home since 2000 they seem to last longer. Do not like the way the door closes hard and opens the same. Other than the door I am satisfied with the ease of operation and heating ability.
