Replaced a previous GE microwave of 18 yrs, needed the same size to fit over the apartment size stove in our beach house.

Rated 1 out of 5 by overthewallin14 Doesn't last. Third one purchased.
Bought 2 years ago and just failed. It's the third GE I have purchased to fit the space and they just do not last. Starting to question owning stock in the company as I have not had much success with their stoves either. I have had to have the same burner replaced twice so I think it's the part.

I needed this one to fit in a space in my kitchen. However, I liked the older model better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Previously happy customer The right size and power for our needs.
This is the 6th Spacemaker GE microwave we have purchased since GE started manufacturing them. Although this is not labeled Spacemaker, it is the same size and functions as our others have. Needless to say, we had been very satisfied with the GE Spacemaker or we would have purchased a different brand. There is one obvious and annoying feature with this new microwave, however, that we never had with the others. The button to open the door is extremely hard to operate and is very noisy. When closing the door, it is also VERY NOISY! At that point, the unit feels very tinny.

We purchased this microwave as a replacement for discontinued GE Model PEM31DMWW which failed after seven years. We were very happy with the previous model and hoped for the same with this one. Under-cabinet bolt pattern is different from the old model, will require new template and more holes drilled in cabinet. Door latch on new model very stiff, latch button and "soft touch" buttons on control panel take considerable pressure to activate. Closing the door sounds like striking the side of an empty oil drum. Unit makes bumping, grinding noises when running - don't know if these are normal or if they indicate future problems. Nice feature on old model was kitchen timer which worked independently of cooking timer; its alarm beeped continuously until silenced by user and was audible throughout the house. We relied on it daily to remember coffee perking on stove, etc. while doing other household chores. New model has same timer function but its alarm is a wimpy one-second beep - can't hear it unless standing by and waiting for it - it serves no useful purpose.
