Comment:
Bought this in September of 2012. On Christmas Eve the Main larger oven shuts down completely. Luckily I bought 1 year extended warranty from Sears but it will take 7 days to get the parts. Sears claims they get alot of reports on this model from people that used the self-clean feature and then it stops working. I ran a self-clean on 12/23 and used it on 12/24 But if stopped working later that evening. Very frustrating to buy a GE Profile for $2000 and it breaks after 15 months. GE support will do nothing and admit no issues with this range. Sears says they have many repair requests on the lower oven that parts break all the time. I guess i am stuck with this stove and will have to continue to buy an extended warranty. Never again will I buy GE appliances.

I purchased this product in February of 2012. Today I called for my second repair. I have already put in $500.00 in repair fees. The electronic range control went out and now it shuts off the gfi. I hate this product and will no longer purchase a ge product!
