Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

It Fit Our Space

Submitted by MikeinVA - We bought it based on comments from previous purchasers who said it's actual dimensions were less than advertised by GE. It fit perfectly into our custom shelves. I'd prefer more than the 800 watts but it cooks everything in just about the same time as our old 1100 watt GE microwave.

Submitted by jimandanne - This is the 3rd GE Profile Microwave oven that we've purchased. Absolutely love the compact size for the space we have available. The multiple features are more than adequate for our needs and we can't imagine life in the kitchen without this great appliance. Thanks GE.

Works well.

Submitted by LL88 - This micro wave works just fine. The door opener button is very clunky and feels cheap. The labels for the different buttons are too small and difficult to read. I do wish they were back- lit so I could read them. Even with my kitchen light, the white lettering can't be see. Al the very least , it should be a bolder and larger lettering. GE makes great product but the missed the mark on this one. Still the features all work great. My other GE microwave that finally gave out was much easier to read the controls. Hope GE will improve on this model.

Disappointing

Submitted by Marcia36 - Owned the previous model of this microwave. Was pleased with It's operation. Size fits into my predetermined cabinet space, hence, reordered updated model. Very disappointed with product! Function options do not work effectively, light is dim, not the quality I expect from GE!

A lesson in frustration.

Submitted by Machoman - This is our 3rd GE undercounter microwave in the same application. We know that any appliance never lasts forever. However... The first was installed by our kitchen remodel contractor. The second came with hardware but no mounting template and holes were different. The 3rd came without hardware or a template, and again, the pattern was different. The unit fits into a VERY tight space. We were finally got it securely mounted, the door failed to fully open because it jams into the cabinet to the left.

Great Under-Counter Microwave

Submitted by HMehlman - This is a replacement for one that we purchased 15 years ago!! 15 years and no issues. I'm looking forward to another 15 with my new one. It's a good, easy-to-use microwave with the option of mounting it to the underside of your kitchen cabinets ... opening up counter space. Normally if your microwave is not over-the-range, it's sitting on your counter top taking up space. There's an mounting kit that you will need to buy, but it's worth it.

It fits into the built-in area of our cupboards.

Submitted by CharliePug - After extensive research, it turns out we only had one choice to fit in the space that is built into the cupboards. Compared to our old Hotpoint microwave (that still worked great, but our kids thought it leaked radiation) this one feels much cheaper. The turntable actually reduces the number of things you can put in at once. And we don't really like the control panel either. We purchased this for one reason and that was that it fit in our space.

Installation should not have been this difficult!

Submitted by Mark888000 - I purchased this microwave to replace an earlier model that had lasted 15 years. The previous microwave was installed under a cabinet so I assumed the replacement model would have the same holes in the top for easy installation. Nope! Two fo the holes were different on the right side. Ok, so I looked for a template that I could tape to the bottom of the cabinet to drill the 2 new holes. NO TEMPLATE! So I called GE customer service and after a long wait, I was told it is not GE's policy to mail out templates anymore. I downloaded the template from the GE website but it is a pdf sized to be 8.5 X 11 which I could not change to actual size, so no template.

Could have been made better

Submitted by Phil11 - We purchased this microwave on Nov. 27, 2019 to replace a comparable-sized unit which served us for about 14 years. Less than 3 months later, the interior bulb blew out. The unit is also noisier and flimsier than its predecessor. Plus, when the technician came out and opened the entire case to get to the bulb, he did not have the replacement bulb/socket on his truck. So now, he has to have it ordered and we will waste another morning waiting for him to come back.

Microwave

Submitted by isman - GE could have at least included a template for measuring where to drill holes for mounting under cabinet. Several screws of a different size to mount microwave would be nice. Considering the price of the microwave how much more would this have cost GE? A $1.00???

Could be better.

Submitted by ForeverFriend - I purchased model pem31df2bb space maker profile microwave to replace an old GE profile space maker microwave. The salesperson told me that the hanging kit hasn't changed in years & that I probably didn't need a new one . The installation would have been much easier if I would have got a new kit . The holes on the new microwave did not line up with the holes on my old hanging kit . I'm not pleased with the loud harsh metallic sound when opening /closing the microwave door . Seriously you can hear the door being opened or closed several rooms away. Would I buy this model again ? Yes . Only because of the specific dimensions of the space where the microwave mounts under the cabinet. I have no complaints regarding the function for reheating food .

Works Well

Submitted by Jimboz - Nicely fits under cabinet even though it did not share them same mounting holes as the previous. Even though the overall outside dimensions are a little larger than the one we replaced, the inside dimensions are smaller and some of our microwave cooking plates do not have clearance to rotate! This is why I only rated as a three star.

Don't Make them like they used to

Submitted by JWalsh - This was a replacement for a GE built in and the size and quality is different. Why would you change the size on built-in's when a space has obviously been created for the original product. Also, I can hardly read the panel buttons. They need to be backlit. I liked the reheat feature on my old GE oven (2003); it sensed the food, I didn't have to choose a number and try to figure out what the codes are. The door latch feels like it could easily break.

MY THIRD SPACE SAVER

Submitted by JenLu - I have just installed my third GE Space Saver and love it. It is not only the perfect dimensions outside but inside as well. I could not find another microwave that fits as flush to the cabinets and has space enough inside for my large lasagna pan. The keypad options are simple and useful, not too many, not to few. The fa├žade is beautiful and the hanging kit allows it to be suspended above counter. We built a new kitchen around this model so I hope it is always available should we need to replace it. I believe I bought my first one about 30 years ago so the product performs for a good long time. I highly recommend it!

Undercounter mount countertop microwave

Submitted by Don111111111111111111 - A little expensive compared to a non mount countertop microwave with the same features and power. But, if you need to mount it under the overhead cabinet, this is the one to get. Interior room allows us to use our biggest bowls. A little more power would have been nice, but a little extra time for cooking is not killing us. It is very quiet, least amount of noise from any microwave we have ever used or been around.

Don't buy this microwave

Submitted by frankthefirst - I've had about three of this same model of GE microwave over a period of 20 years. Great microwave for a great price. Over the years there have been small design changes until now. Now I can't read the new display. It is too faint. Which makes this product nearly useless. Leave good enough alone!

Submitted by KSL1 - The new oven works well, is much quieter than the old one, has a turntable, and fit perfectly in the replacement spot! The one problem is that the buttons are EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO READ! If the clock can be illuminated, why couldn't the buttons have been lit fro the back? I recommend it because it works well, but the design flaw makes using it difficult without using an outside light source.
