Warranty Notes See written warranty for full details

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 and 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.

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

Basic microwave but I'm mostly happy with it

Submitted by Nanax2 - 9/2/2020

Purchased this GE microwave to replace my 14 yrs old GE microwave. They are very similar in appearance, the touch pad is similar enough that I don't have to read a book of instructions, and it fit perfectly in the space where my old one was. It isn't as attractive as the old one and is no louder/quieter. My old one had an insert that allowed you to microwave two layers of dishes at the same time; this one doesn't. I really like the larger and brighter letters on the Time. It doesn't have AM and PM, but I don't miss it. The light on the bottom is brighter and really puts out a lot of light on my cooktop. I dislike that the handle is larger in circumference and is further from the touch pad. On my old one, you could grab the handle and rest your hand on the edge of the touchpad to open the door. On the new one, the handle is too fat and too far away to do that, thus you just pull the door open. Looks like, with no support, it would eventually cause the door to drop and not close and make connection the way it should. Maybe not. I do not like the defrost button. You have to enter the weight of the item and then the time, then press Start. How can I possibly know the weight of every item I might want to defrost. Overall, I am pleased with my new microwave and hope it gives me another 14 years of service.

Simple with just enough features

Submitted by Mary Beth 35 - 5/19/2020

I love my new microwave. It's easy to clean and doesn't have too many features. It has just enough features that I will actually use. My only complaint is that I'm not sure how to microwave for a time other than the pre-set 1min, 2min, etc. Sounds funny, but I might want to do 45sec, and I'm not sure how to do that other than to select 1min and stop it 15sec short.

It's a great microwave. Looks nice, fits well over the stove. Functions well. The only cons are that it is a slightly a weaker power than my last one, and you have to press the button cook time before actually entering the time.

Submitted by MrsLLB - 5/5/2020

Our home warranty contractor was not able to repair the existing over the range microwave we had so we were offered a limited reimbursement to replace it. We found this one that would fit right in the existing space and met the need for a front recirculating vent. It's bigger than the old one and came with better features.

Too New To Rate

Submitted by Ecjaxjag - 5/4/2020

This microwave was very similar to the unit we bought 10 years ago and loved but this unit has a tendency to lock up whereby you get no heat, no program working for potato, popcorn, reheat. Had to totally reset, unplug. To get it to work. One service call, worked as soon as the guy walked in the door. Quit again a week later. Reset again and now it's working we are in week 4. We'll let you know down the road if I throw it out the window!

Submitted by Gurbelski - 4/29/2020

Looking for simple microwave after our GE Profile died after 12 years of use. We discovered we didn't need anything fancy. Only issue was drilling more holes into cabinet to install, wish they would standardize. At this rate my cabinet will be swiss cheese after a few more installs.

Submitted by StockbridgePete - 4/28/2020

I needed to replace a prior version of this model, which starting shorting out circuit breakers after 28 months. This model is about the same, but the over-the-counter light is not as bright, so I had to buy supplementary lighting. It does not seem like a very high quality model, but the price is relatively inexpensive and it does the job, so long as it keeps working.
