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.

Hard to press buttons

Patsy P 4/14/2022

Bought this microwave because it was the only white available in my area. Was larger than I wanted. It seems to work fine but I have to REALLY press hard on the buttons which ends up moving the whole unit. I do like the "30 second" button but find the other buttons (start, stop, etc.) hard to use. It would get a higher rating if it wasn't so hard to use. I had a GE microwave many years ago but the interior paint kept peeling off so I'll be closely watching on this new one.

Study not then it got noisy

Read the Reviews 3/31/2022

I love the sturdiness of this microwave; nothing feels cheap about it. It works well, but a few months in, it started making wobbling noises from underneath the turntable; the turntable stayed steady but something inside/under must have been off. Everything was seated properly inside the microwave, but it made intermittent noises and eventually a screeching sound. It's a product I want to keep, but once it started making a screaming noise, I had it replaced under warranty. Hopefully the replacement will do better. Overall, I love the quality of the microwave-the housing, the heavy electrical cord, the feel of the push button to open the door. It cleans up easily and is an attractive microwave.

Lasted less than 3 years!

5 Times Mom 3/30/2022

I really loved this microwave. It worked really great UNTIL it didn't! It now quickly blows the electrical breaker. I certainly expect any appliance to last at least 3 years. I should have bought the extended warranty but I have never before needed one. And I have been buying GE microwaves since they first came out in the 70s.

What's not to like?

WMMc 3/24/2022

We have only had this microwave for about a week, but have really come to appreciate its many convenience features, especially the "instant on" feature with the first six numbers on the control panel, as well as the "instant on 'Add 30 sec.'" feature. Seems to be well made and sturdy; the door has a solid feel when opening and closing with no rattling. Love the white interior! Much easier to monitor cooking progress when it's bright enough to see inside! So far, we're very pleased with this microwave, and are looking forward to a long servide life, as we've had out of earlier GE appliances we've owned. Thanks, GE, for a great product!

What's Not to Like?

WMMc 3/22/2022

Now that I've had several days to use this oven, I've really come to like it. We bought it to replace a recent purchase of a different-brand microwave that suddenly failed after about 5 weeks' use. We bought this GE model because its features and size were similar to the one that failed. But, at a better price, which is a bonus! Had this GE model been on display when we bought the other one, we might have bought it first! We really like the white interior; it's so easy to visually monitor what's cooking inside. The previous oven had a gray interior to coordinate with its stainless-steel front panel, but it was really hard to see the interior, even with a light on. A colored interior seems to be a new appearance trend for microwaves, but it's a design mistake. I hope GE continues to use a white interior. We noticed this feature while shopping for this one that all the GE models (that we saw) had white interiors; even the ones with black or stainless exteriors. Great job, GE! Keep it up! The controls were familiar, having used an older model GE microwave that someone had loaned me, and this control panel fell readily to-hand. This unit has plenty of power, is pretty quiet while operating, and the door has a substantial "feel" when opening and closing. The white steel housing is sturdy and feels substantial, and coordinates nicely with our other appliances which have white finishes. All in all, it appears to be a great product, and I'm looking forward to getting many years' use out of it. Thanks, GE; I love it!

Have only had this unit fa few days but am finding I like it much better than I first thought. The instant 1-6 minutes and 30 second selection buttons are great. It's quite and it's powerful enough for most any requirements. My only complaint is you have to push really hard on the buttons to select anything.
