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.

A little pricey for the quality and features.

A complete nightmare

AJohnA 4/29/2021

This microwave stopped working four days after it was installed. The GE repairman came out, got it working again, and after he left, it promptly stopped heating food again. The light, clock and turntable work great. Heating food - not so much. Worst purchase ever.

Quality product and easy installation!

Ell30 1/5/2021

We are pleased with everything from delivery through performance. We did our own installation with the easy to read instructions, nothing missing or damaged either. It turned out we could have used the mount from the old Goldstar but no matter. Simple process! The power is also the same as my old microwave making a really small learning curve. Great that the "how to use the features " is displayed right inside the door!! Thank you GE!!

Compared with 20 years ago . . .

Evalu8tor 12/30/2020

I bought this model to replace a similar GE microwave purchased 20 years ago. The new model works OK, but I'm not sure the recent model is as well-built as the older model. We'll see if the new one works for 20 years.

Feeling totally screwed Sears Warr

Service contract w Sears 12/1/2020

Need white, entire kitchen is white. They gave it! Forcing black only cause clause allows that, and we know that under good faith! But not them! Strong arm you to take $$$ then you have to pay another contractor to install you over oven vent/microwave! That's bull. Won't recommend cause sears warranty gave you a bad taste for me.

This is my third microwave of this type, so I am very familiar with this product. I have had no problems with any one of them. Obviously, I like this particular unit since I have had three of them. I would definitely buy another when the time comes.

IT FITS WHERE THE ORIGINAL UNIT WAS

Geno 11/3/2020

This unit is ALMOST IDENTICAL to my original unit. They eliminated the vegetable cooking feature for fresh vegetables. The other issue is, they replaced the double light over the range with only one dim light to illuminate the stove top range. The button is still engineered for the double light but they didn't wire the unit for it. But it fits the kitchen.

Joni81 8/16/2020

I've only had microwave a few weeks, but so far, it works great. It's roomy and has nice, easy-to-read controls. The only problem, which is a small one, is the buttons are a little hard to push.

Lynn1773 6/30/2020

I am disappointed that my over the range microwave has only one light. My previous GE microwave had two lights. Also the timer only has the one volume setting. My previous microwave had two volume settings. If I am in another room, I can not hear the timer when it goes off.

I was completely satisfied with the product - but not happy when the original one's cycletron broke one day after I had it for a year and a half. I got this new one of the same model hoping that it will last a lot longer.... (I did now pay for an insuranoce on the cycletron [art at a minimal cost.

We purchased this microwave because it was similar to our previous model so we did not need to drill any new holes, always a plus. It was a surprise that the old one stopped working after just over 7 years. I'm hoping to get more time out of this one.

Nice microwave

RJA_ 9/19/2019

It looks good and matches the range we bought. We don't use the microwave much, but so far it cooks well. The only thing I would improve is the covering over the keys. We have been using this microwave for about 6 weeks and the keys already look well used. I don't know if they will hold up over time.

Linda5ls 6/13/2019

This is my second microwave of this brand. Loved the first one, but it got old and stopped working, so I bought the same make and model. This one is SO LOUD! If I stand and hold the door handle it quiets a bit, but who has time for that! Wish I had chosen a different one.
