  • GE 1800XL Microwave is a very nice microwave

    Jan 1, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Works and looks great, all modern features one would expect.
    Cons: A little noisy

    Summary: I recently purchased a stainless steel JVM 1870 GE microwave and have been very happy with it. This unit replaced a 15 year old GE space saver microwave and what an improvement the new one is. Installation had a number of quirks. The first being ... read more

    Pros: Appearance
    Cons: Magnetron doesn't last, expensive to repair

    Summary: I purchased this model in 2003 for $449 after researching microwaves for reliability.  Apparently, this model hadn't been in production long enough for it to be known what a lemon it is.  Now I see that I am one of many unsuspecting buyers who ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Reasonably happy  - altho the accompanying documentation did not match the microwave model.
    Cons: Awful service experience.  See a description of what happened in the above.

    Summary: Bought the JVM 1870 in 2004, had it installed when we moved in in Jan 2005.  Reasonably happy with it until the magnetron died on Sunday, July 12th, 5 days ago.Called GE Monday morning because they offer a 10-Year Warranty on the ... read more

  • GE 1870SK Microwave Disappointmet

    Jan 2, 2009 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: The stainless-steel finish matches my other GE appliances.
    Cons: Cheaply made with repairs costing almost as much as the product.

    Summary: I purchased this microwave on 3/18/06 and the unit operated flawlessly until November 2008. During use, it suddenly makes a "popping" noise and stops working. The microwave has only been used to heat up vegetables and cook popcorn occasionally. It was ... read more

  • Major problem with this model microwave

    Jan 23, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks nice, fills the space, which has been empty for over two weeks.
    Cons: Test it immediately to make sure it truly works.

    Summary: Purchased this microwave, new on 7 Jan, installed 10 Jan, and all worked except it would not heat anything!! Service came 2 days later and they found that major parts: the mag tube, diode, cap, were non-functional. We refused accept a repair oven ... read more

  • GE JVM1870 broke down after 5 years

    May 25, 2010 by
    Not rated yet
    Pros: One touch cooking
    Cons: Breaks down. Racks are useless, a sales gimick.

    Summary: I was happy with the microwave until one day it stopped cooking.  Light works, turntable works, but no more cooking.  Service cost $100 just to take a look at it.  Not worth repairing.  I'm disappointed that a over the counter ... read more

    Pros: Looks Nice, worked great for 12 months. GE Repairmen must be wealthy.
    Cons: Grandfather has a 50 year old fridge. They don't build things like they used to.

    Summary: Bought a new home in 2006, one year warranty was up in January, then in February a loud noise and POP....Now it does not light up, nor does the turntable turn, and it heats like CRAZY....what a piece of junk. Not to mention they want $75 just to look at ... read more

    Pros: The stainless steal look is very nice. Definitely a beautiful looking machine
    Cons: It breaks easily...poor quality.

    Summary: Well have had it 12 months. We used it for popcorn and warming a few things once in awhile. Went to use it and no longer heated anything up and made some strange noises. Called GE to repair and ended up with a bill for $192.82. Somehow the fan inside ... read more

    Pros: It looks good
    Cons: quality and only lasts 1 to 4 years. GE doesn't offer any help.

    Summary: Bought one it lasted 8 months and just died. Bought the second one 12-07-03 and the extended warranty. Last week it just hums loud and doesn't heat. Dealer said bring it in. Took the day and removed it and took it in. Store said who told you that ... read more

    Pros: Nice while it lasts
    Cons: Starts malfunctioning after a year

    Summary: I chose this microwave as an upgrade when I had my new house built. It worked great for the first twelve months. However, at 12 1/2 months it has started to completely turn off for no apparent reason. You have to unplug it for about 20 minutes and plug ... read more

  • Great product--short life

    Pros: Good looks, nice performance.
    Cons: Short life.

    Summary: Performed flawlessly for the first 2 years. No complaints until the magnetron tube failed. The microwave has a one year warranty, but the magnetron is covered for 10 years. A GE service person came out and confirmed that the magnetron had indeed failed. ... read more

  • The inside door RUSTED!

    Rated Show
    Pros: Looks nice; turntable can be disabled; good for popcorn.
    Cons: Inside of door rusted within first year of service.

    Summary: We replaced our Kitchenaid microwave-convection with this GE after an ice storm and subsequent power surge fried the circuits. I decided I could live without convection (although was tempted by GE Advantium briefly. I knew GE's quality had fallen in ... read more

    Pros: Clean, upscale look.
    Cons: Poor manual and customer support. Difficult to service.

    Summary: I purchased this unit in 06/2004 and installed it under 15 inch cabinets. (Just the way it was installed in the showroom.) All was well until the interior oven light went out. The user manual was a little sketchy on replacing the bulb - no schematics or ... read more
