Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

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. 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.

Very nice low-end microwave

Unclebilly16 2/26/2021

Only one complaint and that is that is the mounting bracket. The mounting bracket won't hold the microwave while you install the cabinet screws thus making it a two-person job. If you had a tripod or some type of floor jack you could do it with one person.

purchased as a replacement for same model

VCJC 2/26/2021

Installation was not as easy as expected due to the new bracket style. Purchased thinking it would be easy just to use existing mounts, and didn't realize until the box was delivered home that a sticker on it indicated "new installation". Then, after meticulously following paper template instructions (Option 1) for the new style horizontal rather than U shape bracket, the microwave mounted leaving an almost 3/4" gap below the cabinet! Now we're hoping this microwave does not still have the problem with fuses blowing and constantly being replaced until it finally caused our last one, the exact model, to die after only 3 years. Love most things about this microwave...except that the installation changes made it very disappointing. Let's hope that it lasts longer than 3 years!

Good Microwave

canongirl 2/24/2021

I like the microwave just not the way the vents look. There are big gapping holes on the top of the microwave and when I got ahold of the company they said that is how it is made. It looks terrible and what it if something falls in there? What do you do to get it out? The rest is great. I like the 2 speed vent and the 2 setting for the light. Wish the pictures would have shown the top like they did the bottom.

2nd microwave in 3 years

cat876 2/22/2021

We purchased a second microwave, the same model that we purchased in 2017. The old one stopped heating anything and we were told that it would cost just as much to fix it, so we purchased another because it fits into the space. I hope this one lasts more than 3 years!

We replaced our microwave with the same one that was in the house we bought a year ago and the old one died. So far so good, heats things up faster then the old one. The only small complaint is the vent screens fall out now and then.

Heats fast and evenly

Stephen Allred 2/21/2021

The magnetron on our previous GE over-the-range microwave gave out on us after 15 years and we're decided to go with GE again. A month later and we're happy with it. The brightness of the surface light is great. The microwave runs a little quieter than we expected at this price range, which is nice. It heats fast and evenly. Minor preferences are that this one doesn't have a feature for controlling the beeper volume. Also, the surface light button isn't on the bottom corner of the button panel like it was on our previous one. It's a bit harder to find the button when it's dark and we want to use the surface light as a night light.

Not a Workhorse

Up North Bill 2/17/2021

I purchased this model because it is the successor to the one we previously owned. We like its size and features (express cooking). However, this microwave does not appear to tolerate long, serial use because it totally stopped working less than a month after being installed - no lights - nothing. Our dealer's repair staff are coming tomorrow to check out the problem. In addition, the fan noise appears to be significantly louder than its predecessor model. We were told that this is because a more powerful fan is being used in this model because the fan in the previous model didn't move enough air. Finally, the light in this model is not near as bright as the incandescent bulb of its predecessor. With today's LCD technology, it seems like this could easily have been made as bright, if not more so.

Gram2six 2/14/2021

Wasn't sure how an all black appliance would go with almost all white appliances but looks great! My old microwave was about 6 years old so the new ones have a lot of new technology. Besides being easier to select cooking roomed I noticed was how quiet it is while cooking. Couldn't be more happy with my selection!

Good Microwave EXCEPT

greetje927 2/13/2021

I love the microwave and all it does but the clock is not readable no matter what time of day it is. I've included pictures. You can see that the : is so close to the minute number that both minute and seconds all look jumbled together. I can see from the picture of one in this mailing that it is not this way that I can see. I wish it was fixable!

Lauren T 2/13/2021

Bought this to replace an old beat up (other brand) one that was an off-white color and the handle broke. We have oak cabinets, and bought our new GE in black. It looks so much better, really updates the kitchen nicely and works great. It is SO much more QUIET than our old one, has a better surface light, and you don't have to clear the display after the cooking or timer is through. It auto-clears when you pull out your food. Highly recommended!

freeloaderfred 2/10/2021

This isn't our first microwave. We love it! All the features we want except for a lighted keypad. You cannot read the keypad in the dark or near-dark. We can't even find the button that turns on the under-microwave light. Cooks much better than our last couple of microwave. It behaves as if the engineers really thought this out as if it were what they wanted in their own microwave.

2nd one in 2 yrs 3 mod

PADZIWULSKI 2/10/2021

This microwave was purchased 2.3 yrs ago during our kitchen renovation. It just stopped working and I tried replacing the fuse as you tube showed...no workie. Called a repair man who said it was beyond repair and it was not a power issue. The repairman charged $110 to tell me this. I had to then replace the microwave and I had to purchase a GE because I needed to be able to use the same wall mount. The new one works fine but it was an entry level model, which I felt I had to buy since I had already put money in the defective one. Hope this one lasts longer
