  • How to change the interior bulb on JVM1490

    Nov 12, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Clean lines and design. Microwave/convection/exhaust fan functions in one space. Beverage feature works well.
    Cons: Concerns about bulb burn-out rate. You can only dial cook times in 15-second increments.

    Summary: I read in several forums how the whole unit needed to be removed to change the interior light bulb, and this is the GE Hotline advice as well. After taking a look at the assembly drawing, I figured out what to do. First (after you unplug the unit) ... read more

  • A microwave that does double duty

    Aug 12, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good looks, even cooking, many cooking features, many safety features.
    Cons: A bit complex due to its many features. Probably too complex for a child

    Summary: I've had this microwave for several years and I just realized that I never did a review. Since I personally appreciate as many reviews on a product as I can find when I am shopping, I figured it is better late than never. When I was updating my ... read more

  • Agreement and counterpoints

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: You'll seldom use your full-sized, regular oven again.
    Cons: Don't forget to remove the metal rack when using "straight" Microwave feature!

    Summary: I recently purchased this wonderful product from Sears at just over $600.00 (on sale) to replace the mostly useless (oh so slow) and poorly performing (oh so weak) SpaceMaker microwave which I inherited with the house. As one who has a ... read more

    Dec 20, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sensor Cook is amazing! Holds 6 Dinner plates! Can bake in the microvave!
    Cons: Convection bake takes awhile, the sensor gets food warm but not HOT.

    Summary: Summary I bought a new house recently, and I opted to have my appliances upgraded from the standard ones to the GE profile set. I chose black on black, and the convection models. I must warn you, the manual is quite thick on this model due in ... read more

    Pros: Lots of features Convention oven Easy to use
    Cons: Door cracking A little hard to clean inside

    Summary: After 3 years the door cracked in the lower left corner. A new one cost me $100.00 and I have no idea how long it will last. Should I buy one in advance just in case? How long will they make replacement doors? Not sure why the door cracked, but ... read more

    Pros: Powerful microwave. Stylish.
    Cons: Oven light bulb is not consumer replaceable.

    Summary: We purchased this microwave in May 2005. In October 2006 the oven light bulb burned out. There is no way for the consumer to replace the light bulb themselves. I'm not willing to pay for a service call. Otherwise I've been happy with the performance ... read more
