Will not buy any GE Product Anymore

bygnewsome Apr 17, 2013
4 Helpfuls 5 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Worked well when it worked.
Cons Completely unacceptable that a $300 appliance would not work more than 13 months ...
Recommended it? No

I was annoyed by the option to buy Water Heaters with different lives - 5 - 7 - 9 year ... and now spent $300 on a microwave that lasted 13 months ... I feel so taken advantage of.    The magnetron went out ... and the microwave started shooting blue sparks from inside the wall of the... Read full review »


A decent built-in microwave

bymixey62 Jan 22, 2012
16 Helpfuls 17 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros quick heating, quick defrosting, quick preparation
Cons door problems
Recommended it? Yes

This GE microwave oven is an excellent choice for those that like their microwaves to be more powerful than normal. The inverter technology really speeds up the cook time and heats things through thoroughly. It has many nice features, among them, the easy-to-use quickset buttons for minute-cook...

Recommended it? No

Burnt our popcorn, but super powerful. Great for basic reheating. Then three months go by and turntable wont spin. The thing is super clean inside, so not sure why it decided to crap out. 

Bottom line, Maybe we dont buy GE again. Read full review »

Cons Low quality. Will not last. See other comments and complaints.

I had a Microwave oven make for Montgomery Ward (out of business) that lasted 25 years until we decided to junk it for a new one for our new house. This GE worked BUT for only 27 months. Please do no buy this microwave nor anything made by GE because their quality has really dropped. Microwave... Read full review »


Still Powerful after 3 years. Outperforms any Microwave I've ever owned.

Cons Size could be a con for some,but I bought it for size and power.
Recommended it? Yes

I bought it for the size and power. When following generic cooking instructions cut back on the time about 30 % as this unit is powerful ! Stainless steel needs to be wiped for prints, but looks great after 3 years. I would buy another one in a heartbeat ! Best Micro I've even owned and I've owned... Read full review »


Disappointing right from the start

Pros Beautiful design, generous interior
Cons Sensor and fan did not seem to work, food not done properly.
Recommended it? No

The first thing I tried was heating water for a cup of tea, which seemed a nice and easy way to begin, using the Lunch/Soup setting. We were amazed at the utter silence of the unit. More about that later. After too short a period of time, the unit shut off, and the clock numberals disappeared to be... Read full review »


ConsumerReports' best in class - actually lousy

Pros big, looks nice (until it gets fingerprints all over)
Cons sensor is useless; heating is not even; stainless steel will look dirty soon
Recommended it? No

NOTE: I bought and tested the General Electric JES2251SJ in March 2006.


I decided to take a shot of healthy tomato juice today. Why tomato juice in particular? Because of its perfect viscosity for my purpose: testing the cooking evenness of my new General Electric (GE)... Read full review »

Pros roomy inside. easy to clean.
Cons stopped working after 17 months.
Recommended it? No

I have the GE JES2251SJ02 in stainless steel. I have to agree with several of the other posters. My microwave only lasted for 17 months (Feb 7, 2007 to June 22, 2008). Now it doesn't work.

No inside light, no display, no response to the keypad. There doesn't appear to be a fuse anywhere... Read full review »


Excellent Microwave

Pros Inverter Technology, Cooking Sensors, Large Capacity
Recommended it? Yes

I'm not sure why so many people have complained about this model. It's actually very durable, large, and cooks anything you throw at it! Maybe some of the complainers didn't take the time to read the user manual?
For the size, wattage, and inverter technology... which no one else has... Read full review »

Pros Its all good.
Cons Counter space required(if that is a con)....and pricey vs most others.

We have had this model now for about 4 months. There are no faults that I can see except that it does take up a lot of counter space. It also has a LOT of interior room. It heats evenly and quickly overall... Read full review »

Pros simple to use when it works
Cons had two major repairs during the first nine months. Long holds on customer care line.

Ditto on all the reviews here.

I purchased this microwave nine months ago. It stopped working after one month requiring major repair. After repair, it worked another seven months and failed again. Another repair. Both repairs were covered by warranty, but I was without use of the... Read full review »

Pros Great controls & ease of use. At 2.2CI is one of the largest out there
Recommended it? No

We had a Panasonic Microwave that would last 11months and die. The problem appeared to be a poorly designed latch system.

We got the GE to avoid the problem. imagine our surprise when the unit arrived and it appeared to have the same latching system. We made some calls and discovered that... Read full review »

Pros Looks nice.
Cons Cheap. Broke within a year. The door is flimsy. No one button cook.
Recommended it? No

When I purchased this microwave in January 2007 I was looking for an affordable stainless steel microwave. When the microwave first arrived I noticed how "cheap" it felt. The door is flimsy and the whole unit just felt like it was poor quality. In August 2007 it died on me. It would only turn on... Read full review »

Pros Looks, ease of use (very intuitive), Inverter Defrost feature, size of cavity, price
Cons Burns popcorn.
Recommended it? Yes

This microwave excels at everything except making popcorn. For some reason I've never been able to turn out a decent bag of popcorn. No matter how long I let it cook, it burns the popcorn in the bag from the inside out. It's outstanding at defrosting and reheating food though.

i bought this microwave on ebay after reading it was top rated by consumer reports. the unit arrived and didn't work properly (smelled like burning plastic and shut itself off after 20 seconds), but a call to GE had a service tech out to the house in a few days.
