    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.

    Stopped working as soon as warranty expired

    Submitted by Alokie - 12/28/2020

    We have barely used this microwave. It stopped working soon after manufacturer warranty expired. It kept tripping as soon as it was started. After doing some online analysis, I found that a lot of customers are having same issue with this model. One who can do some basic electric tests can replace it by themselves replacing one of the defective thermostats. Few customers also complained about one of the switches operated by closing the door. In any case I lost trust in GE after using this microwave and as a result I stopped buying any of GE products.

    Submitted by Microwave purchaser - 12/28/2020

    We replaced a more expensive model of ge microwave that had failed. This was a similar model we purchased to match the kitchen. Works well. The digital clock numbers are too close together, making it difficult to read from a distance. Other than that it's working fine.

    Submitted by Mamandar - 12/21/2020

    This microwave is very similar to my previous one. The slate finish is a beautiful upgrade. The only issue I have discovered so far, is the sensing for the he baked potatoes. They didn't seem to be quite done. Other then that it seems to be working just fine.

    Not pleased overall

    Submitted by GregBll - 12/14/2020

    I recently purchased this microwave to replace the exact same one I already had, but due to a defect which i had read was fairly common, a hole appeared inside the microwave making it unusable. This microwave was only 5 years old. I purchased the same microwave thinking it would be an easy switch, however the brackets and mounting screw locations had all changed. The new microwave appears to be made with less quality and sturdiness than my old. I'm not confident in the overall quality of this product.

    Design and color fit perfect with my kitchen

    Submitted by jandk98 - 11/24/2020

    Chose this microwave based on the brand and features of the one it replaced (essentially the same), as well as the color - the slate and chrome accents fit beautifully in our kitchen, which is based on a warm brown/tan/gray ("slate") scheme. I like that the exhaust is routed up so that there is no visible exhaust louvers; this adds a clean look to the front. The time display font is not great, and it is tricky to tell the time (digits seem too close together). Arrangement of buttons is also not intuitive in some cases, either. So, it's not perfect, but for the price and function, it's pretty perfect for our needs.

    I like this microwave, however, I have the "slate" color. Looks very nice. Touch controls have black words and numbers on a charcoal grey background. Impossible to read. I have had to use yellow 3 m stickies to label "buttons" so I can operate it. A flashlight might help...but really?

    Easy to use. It also matches with the other kitchen appliances.

    We needed GE to match our other appliances. We are pleased!
