Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Submitted by starr24481 - I had an older version of this microwave. I probably would have gotten a different one, but this was the only one that fit into the space I had in my kitchen. It does the job. Nothing outstanding. A little pricey for what it is.

Submitted by DRGNL8D - This one is very similar to the previous GE model we had for over 20 years. In fact, it is the only model we could find that will fit in our space. It is not quite as deep and the turn table is smaller, but it works for us. The push to open is much stiffer, which I don't like. Overall, a microwave is a life saver.

Submitted by Cookscook - This unit replaced a Monogram ZEM which was also a Spacemaker II. slower performancee and less intuitive controls. Still having trouble with Starting Vegetable sensor cook.

Doesn't vent properly - it stays "wet" inside

Submitted by Cust01 - Doesn't vent properly - it stays "wet" inside no matter what food item I heat or cook - I ordered a GE Profile - but this only has GE painted on the front - loved my last "Profile" - this one doesn't hold a candle to my other Profile.

Fit into under cabinet space

Submitted by Barca - The microwave mounted under cabinet died after living here 5 years, so needed new one to fit in same space. old one was GE profile and after looking everywhere and online, found the GE profile current model. Husband didn't want to use screws to hang it, so built a shelf for it to sit on under cabinet. Easier for putting in and eventual removal when this one dies. Love it because it's the only one we found that small to fit in space, almost identical to previous one. i do agree with other reviews that interior light is dimmer, and buttons a little harder to push and don't always respond..have to open door, close and push again. I don't expect it to last forever...why don't other companies make smaller microwaves?

Good Value

Submitted by Setterperson - we've had this model for many years. Features have been updated a bit and despite low 800 wattage it cooks nicely. Downside I have to mention is we mounted it under a cabinet and the holes on one side of the top were not cut to match the other side so it took a bit of effort to get it mounted correctly. Not sure if it's a design flaw or a manufacturing defect on this particular one. Otherwise I love this model.

Replacement Microwave

Submitted by Ratfish1 - Found this unit by accident in online chat. Needed a unit to replace our old unit which had died . Needed a unit which hung under our cabinetry and fit in a very small hole. This was the perfect unit. Unit has a turn table which our old unit didn't and heat food much faster. GE needs to advertise better for this unit. I'm sure there are other in need of such a unit.

Meh

Submitted by jeezaloo - On the plus side, it fits the space, which no other microwave did, it's fairly quiet, and has some nice features. The "reheat plate" works well. On the minus side, it was expensive. It is low-powered, seeming even weaker than the same-wattage oven that it replaces. The oven continues for another couple seconds while it's beeping, after the counter has reached zero. The turntable does not do a rotation an even number of times in 30 seconds or a minute. This doesn't matter for a plate, but when I put a measuring cup or my coffee mug in, then when the cycle is done the handle is pointing the wrong way. Annoying. And I can't anticipate which way it will end up (and compensate for it) because I don't know which way the turntable will go at any given time. It changes direction. Additional minuses: The kitchen timer beeps once when the time is up and then stops. So if I'm not within earshot when it goes off, I don't even know that it's happened. *Timers should make noise until they are turned off*. The "reheat soup" and "beverage" settings have both caused boil-overs. It's hard to see in the fairly small window (at least when it's at cabinet height) so there was a big mess to clean up. Finally, customer service told me that the trim kit I had for the JEM31WF that this is replacing would work with this new microwave. It did not. Not even close. And because the trim kit that is sold with this microwave is 27" wide, I had to get a custom made trim kit. The old GE standard one fit my 26" cabinets just fine.

Replacement for a GE Spacemaker JEM25WY

Submitted by Ratfish1 - I found this GE Profile Series by accident. I needed a small microwave which would fit into my existing cabinets.Somewhere I found a reference to the GE Profile PEM31DFWW, which would be a good replacement for my existing microwave. It fit perfectly and was easily installed. GE should make this easier to find. Much quieter than my old unit and has a turntable. Would have liked a slightly larger unit, as I did have more space.

Submitted by Cher52 - I am disappointed in my new microwave. First of all I have to push the buttons very hard to get the to work. It got very hot the other day when I popped popcorn. I am going to try it again and may be calling service dept. It also fits so close that the door does not open well. I have had two previous GE microwaves and have not had a problem until they died.

Submitted by Bisque wish - I had the same microwave in bisque for 10 years and I really liked it. This doesn't come in bisque so I got a white one. The panel touchpad is very difficult and hard to press. The timer beeps once and that is NOT enough. Other than that it works ok.

Submitted by Cool Ray - This microwave works perfectly. It's easy to understand the instructions which provide for many auto features that take the guesswork out of cooking many different types of items. The only criticism is that you have to push the buttons very hard Instead of using a simple touch to activate the commands.

Some welcome improvements over the older model.

Submitted by Shazzy1414 - Love that the size is only slightly larger than the older model and still fits nicely on the counter. The turntable is an upgrade and a welcome addition. The only problem is that the beverage setting isn't accurate and has to be set on cook time. Other than that, we're delighted with it.

Needs Improvement

Submitted by jay27 - Have owned 5 GE microwaves from this family/size. Works fine, needs work on control panel font size and style to improve readability. Older versions were better than new replacements of PEM31. Have both white and black models, white is better than black which is almost unreadable in current version without direct light.

Runs very quiet

Submitted by astroarchitect - This is the third GE 24" undercabinet micro that I buy. I'm hoping that this one will last longer than the other two did. The others both had the same problem of not shutting off. Had to keep the door open to keep it from running. This is a slightly different model so I'm hoping that the problems with the others won't be repeated. Not too many white 24" units out there so I'm kinda forced to go with this model. The unit seems to run well, all the controls do what they are supposed to. The door release button is a bit on the stiff side, but I'm also hoping that will loosen up with time. The door does not close quietly and no matter how slowly I close it, it makes a rather loud slam. But those are minor issues as long as it works well.
