Pros Reasonably happy  - altho the accompanying documentation did not match the microwave...
Cons Awful service experience.  See a description of what happened in the above.
Recommended it? No

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 magnetron.

It was obvious the Magnetron died because... Read full review »

Pros The stainless-steel finish matches my other GE appliances.
Cons Cheaply made with repairs costing almost as much as the product.
Recommended it? No

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 purchased to match the galore of other GE... Read full review »

Cons Test it immediately to make sure it truly works.
Recommended it? No

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 when purchasing a new product... Read full review »

Cons It breaks easily...poor quality.
Recommended it? No

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 just came undone (great workmanship) and The... Read full review »

Pros Nice while it lasts
Cons Starts malfunctioning after a year
Recommended it? No

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 it back in and reset the time each time it...

Great product--short life

Pros Good looks, nice performance.
Cons Short life.
Recommended it? No

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. However, the labor is not covered--$165. Upon... Read full review »

Pros Looks nice; turntable can be disabled; good for popcorn.
Cons Inside of door rusted within first year of service.
Recommended it? No

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 recent years, but I wasn't prepared for... Read full review »

Pros Clean, upscale look.
Cons Poor manual and customer support. Difficult to service.
Recommended it? No

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 blowups showing how to do it. After two... Read full review »

Pros Works and looks great, all modern features one would expect.
Cons A little noisy
Recommended it? Yes

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 that while the new microwave was 30 inches... Read full review »
