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.

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.

Soooo quiet....

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!

Love everything about his

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!

Solid concept of a required product

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

Black Micro 2/8/2021

It works as expected, not sure how long it will last but the one it replaced it with was GE too and it last long. The only difference with the old one is the blower turns on when you microwave and there's no off option. The shiny finish is a bit of work because I want everything in my house as spotless.

Original purchase was a little noisy. We exchanged it for same new model and the second one is much quieter. No complaints now. Looks great and does what a microwave is supposed to do. We had a similar GE model, however with sensor, that lasted 11 years with no problems and with heavy daily usage.

Great microwave oven

Jakeo25 2/1/2021

This GE microwave is a perfect replacement for my aging Kenmore. The cooking is flawless, controls are easy and intuitive. The surface light is nice and bright, plus has a dim setting for night. My only negative is sometimes an extra start button push required to start a timed cook. Also, a minor "brown-out" caused clock to reset. Other than this, I am happy with purchase.

Looks great and we love it

mom of Ryan 2/1/2021

There have been a couple of times where the display told us to put the food in the microwave and it was already in the microwave. Defrost works very well. I can tell you that the cord was a little shorter than the GE microwave we had before. Why did they make the cord shorter. If anything it should be longer. Replaced GE microwave installed 2006 when remolded kitchen, never had any problem with it until it died 2021. That's why I wanted another GE microwave. Have been using it for a week. 4 stars because of shorter plug in cord.
