It the greatest

Sue0827 11/25/2020

I bought this to replace another GE that was only 5 1/2 years old. This microwave is made cheaply, and is very tinny. The buttons are hard to read. It also doesn't cook by sensor.

KyCarNut 11/23/2020

I recently replaced a unit from another manufacturer that was less than two years old with this microvent. At the time I thought what an inconvenience but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise. This unit works so much better in every way than the one I replaced. This unit is also much quieter than any other microvent I've used before.

Panel Light does not light up

Disappointed32 11/23/2020

I have just bought a new GE microwave, model #JVM3160 and I am very disappointed in finding out that there is no panel light for the numbers to show. This is my first over the range microwave. This range was picked due to the color that coordinates with other appliances in my kitchen. I have seen other comments online regarding the same issue that I have so I know there is no solution.

Basic microwave, flimsy door.

jpowersny2 11/21/2020

Not many features. The popcorn feature is just a timer. The door did not close well. I had to hold it shut to get the oven to turn on. I was able to exert a lot of pressure on the door without breaking it and now it closes ok, but still doesn't feel solid.

Failed after about 16 months of ownership

Sad Sister 11/20/2020

i've bought 2 of these -- just purchased the second one today only because i needed it right away for thanksgiving, and i wanted a black finish and this is the only one i could find locally that fits the available space over my stove. my first one (same model) failed after only 16 months of use. there are just 2 of us using it, so it wasn't getting extreme use by any means. i wouldn't have bought it again, but as i said, i was in a bind. this time, i bought the extended warranty. based on previous experience, i'll need it. :(

Difficult to Replace

Bblair 11/18/2020

I bought the mod. JMV3160DF5BB to replace a 10 yr. old mod. JVM1750DP1BB and was disappointed that various attachments were relocated making installation difficult. The top mounting attachments required drilling new cabinet holes, the wall mounting bracket tabs were changed so the existing one could not be used, and the vent location was moved slightly. I have no complaints with the microwave itself after installation.

Nikkishoes 11/17/2020

I really dislike the fact that there is no backlight to see the microwave buttons. You need to have a bright light near it to see which buttons to activate. The microwave panel shows all finger prints and dish rag marks. My old 20 yr old GE microwave was wonderful. The quality is cheaper also.

Very Quiet

GLL5 11/16/2020

I really like the overall design of the microwave, but am still getting used to the placement of some of the control/feature buttons as they aren't in an intuitive spot to me. I can't believe how quietly this microwave operates compared to the one we replaced. The touchpad seems a little harder to push than my old microwave, but it is probably just a matter of getting used to the more precise touch needed. I've only been using it a little over a month now, but have noticed that it heats up a little slower than my previous microwave.

Good basic microwave , horrible clock display

Wchimes 11/16/2020

The microwave is fine . But the clock display can't be read across the room as the numbers are too close together. I haven't read any other reviews, but I have to think his has been mentioned before . We don't like to stand next to a running microwave as they all leak a little ( and yes I tested this one too) but seriously , across the room you can't tell what the timer say. It's a little thing to complain about, but it's also a little thing to get right in the first place. Everything else is fine , we installed it ourselves with no problem in a few hours.

GE - DONT MAKE INSTALL EEDLESSLY DIFFICULT

TEX2020 11/14/2020

Purchased to replace similar GE model that I installed 7 years ago after it lost power. Was not excited about buying another GE given limited life of last one but figured installation would be easier. It wasn't. Rear mounting bracket has changed along with location of top mounting bolts. To make it worse, template to mark and drill the new cabinet holes is made of thin paper that's been folded over a dozen times. Seriously, how much more would it cost to make it out of sturdy cardboard?

Total piece of JUNK!!!!!

Allan3395 11/10/2020

This microwave oven literally "Burns" everything in the middle of it in about a 3" diameter in the center of the oven. We had hardly used the oven for the first couple of months after we bought it and so did not realize this fact until time had went by. I had the GE repair people out twice and both times they used the old "everything is operating with factory specifications" line on me. I called both Best Buy and GE and spoke with customer service operators and their supervisors and both told me
