  • The GE Profile JEM31BF Spacemaker Microwave Oven is Fantastic

    May 20, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Truly is a spacesaver, cooks food evenly and well, lots of cooking options.
    Cons: None

    Summary: My kitchen renovation is complete and I now have an updated, immensely functional kitchen consisting of a fabulous Thermador cooktop and a terrific Thermador double oven but believe it or not, I use my GE Profile JEM31BF Spacemaker Microwave Oven ... read more

    Pros: It has never let us down in 16 years.
    Cons: No turntable. A little under-powered.

    Summary: In the last couple of months we've realized that the oven is taking a little longer than usual to do routine things. Four minutes instead of 3 1/2 -- that sort of thing. Went looking online for a replacement as the GE is getting a little old. Most ... read more

  • Don't waste your money

    Aug 23, 2007 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: It was small... thin.
    Cons: Too expensive to break unexpectedly after only 3 1/2 years.

    Summary: After 3.5 years this machine magically stopped heating today. There is no support or troubleshooting offered by GE and don't bother with customer service - they are not there to help, they just want to send out someone for more than it costs to by ... read more

  • I don't really like it.

    Rated Show
    Pros: Cooks evenly
    Cons: not a good model overall breaks easily

    Summary: This model came with the house we are renting. We are the first people to rent the house and 2 weeks after we moved in we had to call someone to fix it. The computer board went out on it. I asked the service tech if that was common, and he said it was. ... read more

  • Don't do it!

    Rated Show
    Pros: Compact and nice looking...before it falls apart!
    Cons: Falls apart, and falls apart quickly!

    Summary: We purchased this microwave in October. By January the keypad was delaminating and bubbling up. Three months, and the microwave is falling apart! A call to "customer service" to 45 minutes and ended with because it is cosmetic, it's not covered by the ... read more

  • Poorly Made

    Pros: None
    Cons: Terrible Service

    Summary: I have only had the microwave for 4 months when the stainless steel front starting separating from the body on the door and on the LED panel. Both needed to be replaced. Customer service was terrible with long hold times. The parts were back ordered ... read more

    Pros: Inexpensive under-counter machine.
    Cons: CANNOT be relied upon for trouble-free operation.

    Summary: The problem with this particular microwave can best be illustrated by the following statement of fact: like so many other American made and engineered products, it is plentiful in novelty and frivolity but lacking in reliability--period. All of the ... read more

  • Very poor durability

    Feb 22, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: saves counterspace
    Cons: Doesn't last very long before self-destructing

    Summary: This microwave has terrible durability. Our first one lasted 3 years, and the second one lasted 4 years. This is ridiculous for an appliance. Supposedly the magnetron is warrantied, but ho-ho, the service is as much as buying a new one. We sure ... read more

  • 11 years old, good oven

    Pros: Durable, mine lasted 11 years. Makes great popcorn.
    Cons: It could be more powerful.

    Summary: I bought this one 11 years ago and it worked great until a few days ago when the glass tray broke. Unfortunately the tray is ~$80 to replace so it's time to get another microwave. It does NOT WORK without that glass tray. It now burns popcorn and ... read more

    Pros: Good size for built in cabinet look.
    Cons: Poor quality and poor service

    Summary: I've had my GE Profile Spacemaker for only 4 years and now the heating element needs to be replaced. The part is covered under warranty, but GE is still going to charge me $150.00 to fix it. Three people in Customer Service were not helpful at all with ... read more

  • GE Spacemaker Microwave is great

    Mar 8, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Narrow depth, well-designed controls, even cooking, many convenient features.
    Cons: None. Consider this microwave even if you have lots of space to devote.

    Summary: This line offers one of the few alternatives for folks looking to fit a microwave into or under upper cabinets which are typically 12-12.5 inches deep. And, it does so by providing a generously sized oven. The oven is wide, though not deep so you can ... read more

    Pros: size, styling, functions, features
    Cons: just a little hard to press the button to open it. but no biggie.

    Summary: Previously we had a full size, huge microwave that stuck out of the shelf and looked ridiculous. at first we thought we were nuts when we took the microwave out of the box. it was so much smaller, we thought for sure we'd want to send it back. This ... read more
