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.

This is a replacement microwave over the range. I am very pleased with the overall features it has. The other one lasted me 10 years. We used it numerous times daily. I didn't have to relearn much other than where the buttons are. Very happy with my new purchase!!!

Better Design

Submitted by almdmb25 - 5/28/2020

The microwave that came with our house (also a GE Space Saver), died after roughly 15 years of heavy use. We purchased a newer model in the GE Space Saver line. The difference is night and day. Easy to install (being the same model family, we were able to reuse the hanging bracket and bolts). It has powerful lighting in one area with a broad spread rather than the 2 lights in 2 locations on the bottom. Ventilation over the stove works wonderfully and being that the vents are on top, air will not blow in our faces as we cook. The turn table can be turned on/off (so we will not have to remove the turn table when needed). I love that there is a sensor to notify us when we need to replace/clean filters. The clock read out is bolder and we did not have to mess with AM/PM setting (the previous model had AM/PM which was dwarfed and not legible). It is quieter than the previous model and it heats food/liquid beautifully. We are very pleased.

Bad unit - magnatron will give out

Submitted by burn35 - 5/18/2020

I've owned this microwave a little over a year and of course the magnatron goes out right after the warranty ends. Of course. It will cost me $390 to fix which I might as well just replace the whole unit at this point. Move on - this is one is a waste of money.

We're in love with microwave!

Submitted by Blueridgedreamer - 5/10/2020

Got this as a replacement for a Frigidaire model that didn't outlast its warranty and boy what a difference! Unlike the Frigidaire, this microwave has a door that opens and closes gently and a pleasant chime that tells you when the food is ready. We love the exhaust feature that keeps the unit from getting steamy inside and it's quiet motor. We find the light above the stove to be adequate and yet soft enough not to interrupt the peace of the kitchen at night. Plus it has a night light option. The door hinge needs very little space to open making it a great unit for tight spaces, which was essential for our kitchen. We got this unit in white to match our white GE stove and couldn't be more pleased with it!

We purchased a GE over the range microwave just over 2.5 years ago & it just went out! We bought a GE thinking it would last longer than the previous one, but no, it it did not! Beware! These do not last long!! Which is so sad! I can guarantee we won't buy GE again!

Space Problem Solved

Submitted by Pamie 83 - 3/25/2020

I am very disappointed with GE Microwave as this is a replacement for one that was only 1 1/2 years old. It was less expensive to purchase a new one than repair the heating unit in the old one. I have taken the 3 year contract on this new one as insurance.

Submitted by D Boy - 3/22/2020

So far so good. We installed it ourselves. Definitely a two person job though. of course had to drill new holes for brackets, but the directions made that easy. Looks great and works as it should so far. The under hood light is placed in the back but provides enough light for stove surface. Fan is kinda loud but pulls a lot of air, more than our old machine.

Satsfied

Submitted by patsie - 2/18/2020

Our new microwave replaced the exact same model that was purchases 2 years ago, that's right, 2 years ago. We assuming that was a fluke. So far I'm happy with this one except for the one change you made. Instead of having two lights, one on either side, there is one light in the back. It's a lower wattage and it hardly sheds any light on the stove. The only reason I can come up with is it's a cost saving measure for GE

Submitted by Leeann301 - 9/3/2019

This microwave is a great choice. It is simple to install, easy to operate, is reasonably priced and operates very quietly. It has a light to make stove top cooking easier, a vent fan, a turntable, a kitchen timer and a great popcorn setting. I also like how the inside is easy to wipe clean, there are no strange corners where food gets stuck and packs in to. Great overall choice for an over the range for a family on a tight budget.

Submitted by ann0 - 4/13/2019

Replaced this GE model with a GE that I had for 15 years, 1 month - never had any problems or even serviced once. Then, one morning turned it on - nothing. So, called GE & was told they did not make microwaves that large anymore - I would have to get a different model & filler panel kit. Disappointed they do not make Bisque color anymore, so ordered white. Blends right in with cooktop. Have to get used to looking at the big GE medallion in the middle - bright clock display, & surface light. Hope this one lasts as long as the old model!! Have all GE kitchen appliances & they have lasted 15 years + !!
