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.

dim bulb

ncyr 3/12/2021

This is our fourth GE microwave over a 25 year period. We have been well satisfied with these products, but find this newest one has a very dim bulb to the point that you cannot see into the oven when it is working so you can't see how the cooking is progressing. Also the digital readout is dimmer. We used to be able to read the clock across the room but no longer can.

bad

Socc1 3/10/2021

We had problems with this from the beginning. For 3 months wondered what was wrong and finally it just wouldnt start. Had to go thru GE to send us a voucher. Hopefully it will all work out in the end. They don't reimburse taxes though. Everyone tells me all microwaves are not built very good. So we will probably buy the same one again and hope that we get a better one.

I love our new microwave. We replaced an over the stove unit with a countertop unit. The over the stove unit was to high to be safe. This counter top unit is larger and more powerful. I love everything about it.

Micheal48 3/8/2021

We find this to function as one would expect a microwave to function. We found this to be a good value based off size, power and price. We like the GE brand, we find them to have minimal, if any, issues.

Nice Large Capacity

Familyof10 3/6/2021

This microwave was ideal in wattage and capacity for our large family. Features I use most often include the defrost and the vegetable button which allows me to choose between canned, fresh, or frozen. We also enjoy the Add 30 sec. button for convenience. Only complaint I have is that after only using about 3 months the clear covering over the touch select buttons is beginning to bubble. Also, in design I would prefer not to have such a dark window, nor the large GE emblem offset at the bottom of the microwave's front. Lighting inside the microwave is also a bit dim. Overall, very satisfied with this purchase.

Some good features

The Bern 3/2/2021

Overall the unit is a good buy. Wish they had used a more powerful bulb to illuminate the cooking area when it was in operation/. My older model was much brighter! Also, a backlit control panel would be helpful. Finally, the clock numerals are dim compared to other brands.

Replaced my old GE. The buttons are harder to operate on the new one. Reheat function burns the food. The old one did not. Now this one is starting to make noises and the light flickers like it is about to fail. Exactly like my old before it died.
