Fire Hazard - Flawed design - Why no recall?

 

We have had 2 of these, both start arcing behind the waveguide around a years time. Only GE product bought in the last 20 years (for quality reasons) ,and will be the last.

Didn't catch on fire

Unintuitive panel, no minute button, must clear to add minutes - Hazard

My oven cooks faster

 

I am disappointed to report that after about 18 months the convection part does not function properly.  It took 25 minutes (after preheat) to bake come bake and serve biscuits (14-17 minutes per package directions).  It is now a glorified microwave.  I...

When it worked it was great

In less than 2 years the convection portion not working right Very disappointed in GE

Microwave on FIRE!

 

Used this product for 14 months and was concerned when sparks started to arc from within the unit. Just out of warranty this product spits sparks and fire out of inside panel. DANGEROUS!

It heats food up, like what it is suppossed to do

Cheap, dangerous product that HAS caught on fire

Poor Quality Body & Packaging

 

Stay away from purchasing this microwave. I ordered one from a major retail store. I did notice the cardboard container was thin & flimsy but I assumed it was protected well on the inside. When i opened the container, both sides of the microwave were...

Styling & Price

Body is flimsy, it will not last

Great idea, perfect size

 

This unit fits nicely under lower cabnets, with about 2" clearance above.

Very easy to use, quick and nice looking.

Looks like stainless, but not.

Consumer review by:

Great microwave....if you can find them for sale..just watch for damage

 

When my last microwave pooped out I looked around and saw this at a local lowe's, my main stove is also sorely in need of replacement and I wanted something a little more versatile that could do more than just microwave.

Convection, grill, microwave, combo cooking all in one unit

Packaging didn't protect the unit from damage, gets hot when operating in
